Confirmed by the developer panel themselves.

Do the "luck" items like the four-leaf mandragora bud, millionaire's desk, etc. actually have anything special about them?

There are no hidden effects programmed into these items. However, there is no way to program "luck" in real life, either.

This was quoted from the official fan festival website on this page:

I have always been weary about this desk and its "rumoured" treasure hunter, so many people swear by it yet so many other people are quick to call BS on it. Anyway the price on these has dropped from 1,000,000 to 300,000 on my server over the last few months, so I thought I would buy one to put it to the test.

Now I'm a goldsmither who farms, mines and grows his own materials and I am currently farming Tree cuttings in the Sanctuary of Zi'Tah, to grow into nuggets for crafting, and quite frankly the drop rate is crappy with out treasure hunter, but after going back with the desk in my MH the drops were insane I got 9 tree cuttings in a row, it was windsday at the time, (dunno what moonphase was) Windsdays probabally my best day for farming cuttings, but 9 in a row was in incredible drop rate, if felt like I had just wolfed down a lucky egg omlette, sprinkled with diced rabbit tail and chopped 4 leaf mandy bud.

Now was this the work of the desk, or was it just coincidence? We all have our lucky moments, I think to belive it was the desk it was too much of a coincidence. I cant wait to log onto tomorrow and run some more tests.
Retired from FFXI ....but for how long this time?

Someone once told me that this item gives you a TH bonus only if it is a certain spot and position in your mog house. Any verification on this?
# Dec 15 2005 at 4:20 PM Rating: Decent
Well ;x I thought it was a rumour about the desk giving th bonuses. But someone gave me the desk for christmas and Im wondering now if it will really work. Gonna keep it for CP points anyways but can anyone give me a link to the article where it was disproven Or I read someone here said they had screenshots where the effects were proven. Just curious and want to know one way or the other. ^^; would be nice to be able to get up to th6 ^^
th2 naturally
+ 2 on af gloves
+ 1 on knife
+ 1 on desk

^^ but its still a nice desk for conquest points I guess ^^ and itll make my mh look pretty lmao.

If anyone has solid confirmed info on desk pm here ^^ thanks

now, i cant tell u exactly how to do this, but im told u can use a windower, and watch ur code, TH im told gives u extra chances to roll high enough, but im told well watching ur code, this thing actualy just adds i think it was either 15 or 25 to ur roll on if u get an item, now this is just what i was told, and idk how to do it, if u figure it out, tell me :)

I am afraid that I have to put in my two cents here. Saved up my gil as a lil thief (around 30), kept it until I was 50. Ran tests (lending to others for comparative testing also), did everything I could to see if there was any difference. Answer: none whatsoever. I will admit that it had 2 benefits: 1) I racked up a huge amount of CP, and 2) I sold it for a rather impressive profit just before the news came out that it did not help TH or HQ crafting.

I think it's 96 Goldsmithing 51 Smithing 60 wood cap.
Ancient lumber is like a lvl 72 Wood synth but I think the cap for wood on this particular synth IS 60.

I farm a lot, and perhaps it is all luck but since I bought this I have seen an increase in drops, when farming I rarely go without seeing a drop anymore. But like I said maybe all luck but until my drops go back to how they were before the desk, I am going to keep it.

I would like to make one but the woodworking(--) and Smithing (--) has me worried. Does anyone know or crafted one successfully here that can tell me thier Smithing and Woodworking? Also two of my roommates have these and you get the Moghancement:Conquest, but apperantly you can't have anything in your mog house layout wise( No furniture or what have you).
No, im sorry.

My friend, 75 rng/thf (all sj's are lvld btw) has 2 of these and they dont give TH and they dont stack TH so dont buy them if thats what your looking for. We camped LL, Jej, Cargo Crab Colin, and he fought Kirin...(im not high enuff for that yet) LL didnt drop after 2 kills, Jej of course didnt drop, We got the Nadrs off of CCC ^.^, but alas no osode drop from kirin ;;...and btw, since you have to have these in your Layout in your mog for moghancemet or ""Hidden Effects" to kick in, how could that guy have 60 in his mog...-.- you cant put that many in your layout...have you seen this thing? Its huge...Sorry just thought i would let you guys know b4 u camp for a month to buy this thing just to be disappointed.

the guy who said someone was making 100mil a day? that cant happen cause the most gil you can have is 99,999,999 the only way he could have that much is if he have more gil in his DB or he was buyin a whole lotta expensive stuff

Actually, the most gil you can have is 999,999,999 ... however the most you can list an item in your bazaar for is 99,999,999 ... so the most gil you can have is enough to buy 10 maxed out priced bazaar items. Even the mention of making 100mil/day is enough reason to skip the rest of the post, and it's either a prank/joke or a really sad sad loser ... lol ... My THF is about to turn 40, and I was thinking about getting one, but at near a mil, I would like some proof that these actually do something .... hmmm ... dilemas...

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 17 2005 at 11:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OMG, you wouldn't believe me, but my Friend is a lvl 75 THF/RNG, he used to have 60 of these in his MH!, we were doing a Dynamis Run and 20 M. Silverpieces drop!. We went for a GOD run, and after Kirin died, 5 Kirin Osades Dropped!, I Was like WTF?! he made over 100 million gil a day! even after killing Serket, the same 5 Serket Rings came out each time, again and again. he got his Goldsmithing up to lvl 100+10, and he crafted 3 Vulcans Rings a day, sold them each for 100,000,000 gil to special people he knew. Well, after awhile he bought a website and quit FF11, and now hes got 800,000,000,000 gil to sell, he'll prolly buy a new house with the money hes making off gilbuyers.

I heard that the TH effect also works if you dont have thf main/sub can anyone confirm this for me?
# Aug 16 2005 at 10:38 PM Rating: Default
I have these items in my possession...
4Leaf-Mandra Bud
Wild Rabbit's Tail
Lucky Egg
Millionare's Desk

I am a 58Thf/Nin

Some would say i have TH2+5.
Some would say i have a pile of junk..

from what i have seen my drop% has improved greatly after obtaining all four of these items (within 2 days to get all)..
I farm spiderwebs in west altepa.. within a timespan of 2hours, i can get 15-20 webs. i have even had a few times where they'd drop consecutivly.. most i had drop was 4 in a row.

anyone who hunts spiders might notice that their droprate = jacksh*t, compared to this
Conquest points
# Aug 16 2005 at 6:10 AM Rating: Decent
Is there any other Furnatures give Conquest points ?
No TH No Guild support.
# Aug 12 2005 at 3:36 PM Rating: Default
Description: Moogle-powered assistanced from your Mog House. Increases the number of individual conquest points received.

This is NOT for TH or Crafting. It's for Conquest points.
RE: No TH No Guild support.

Accautly i had a desk & sold it bc i thought there was no differance "There is". I re-aquired another desk & noticed a increase in drops & crafting HQ of alot of my items i normaly don't HQ alot of. "I am not telling everyone to go buy one", just ask some1 you trust that has TH2 & the Desk if they notice a increase of item drops if they say no ask them to send it to a mule while they farm & they willl notice less drops. this is just what i did & I noticed a large differance. Don't just take my word on it try it.

Bought mine in Shiva for 900K, read all the rumors and wanted to see for myself. Well I first heard about it from a high lvl friend of mine who decided to buy one and test it, While farming, which he hates since his drop rates were always horrible he noticed an increase in drops so he bought another desk to see if it stacks, which he soon found out it doesn't.

Lvling my RNG and NIN from 7-10 I had ok drop rates using signet and the aketons (which increase crystal drops). Drops were as follows from lvl 7-10 in Gustaberg Vomp Hill.

RNG: 12 Earth Crystals, 2 Wind, 3 Fire, 10 Random items (Ores, Bat wings, Sheepskin)

NIN: 6 Earth Crystals, 2 Fire, 1 Wind, 7 Random items (Bstseals, Bonechip, Sheepskin, Ores)

Now lvling my MNK from 7-10 with the desk, signet and no aketon drops were as follows.

MNK: 12 Earth Crystals, 12 Wind Crystals, 9 Fire Crystals, 3 Sheepskin, 6 Ores, 8 Beehive Chips, 10 Bstseals, 3 Insect Wings, 2 Goblin Masks, 3 Wild Onions, 4 Pots of Honey.

This difference made me really think it might actually be true or maybe my MNK was just lucky, Out of all the mobs I fought with MNK, only 4-5 didn't drop anything. I have yet to try an NM so I'll be back to update. Even if this was just a fluke the desk is still nice to have in your MH and that should count for something right?
its bull
# Aug 04 2005 at 2:14 PM Rating: Decent
it doesnt add TH+2 theres no way only THF AF could that is the only way you guys are so naive to buy into it. a crafter said it so you would buy it and give him more gil you ignorant little kids.

Edit: It would also be posted that it gives TH+2 on here but it's not true experiment for yourselves not from what a person says who is trying to ***** you over for gil.

Wow!! that has to be one of the rudest things I've read on this site. The fact is this DOES work. It works well. My drop rate went up 50-70% since I bought this. I've even recieved the infamous Lantern Shield 1 out of 3 kills from the Orcish Barracader. Before I killed it at least 12 times and never got the drop. So please before you belittle people with your petty arrogance I suggest you do some research or try it yourself.
i need 1mil?
# Jul 25 2005 at 4:48 PM Rating: Decent
do i need 1 mil on me to use TH+2? do i have to /thf to use it?

Use to have this for NM hunting sold it for 3 mil >.> made a 2650k profit from it ... but after wards my drops went down the hole >< I havent gotten a big time NM drop from any thing cept Rare/EX ones like the O. Cross bow thing in Gustav. I'd have to say this thing does boost your TH ability in my oppinion.
