region vs conquest

Is the mogenhancement for CP given by this desk the same as the one given by the Star Globe (Mogenhancement:Region)? In other words, are region points the same as conquest points? A bit confused about that.
My "experienced" theory..

I know many people say it's just rumored, but as a THF main 74, I've farmed with it, and without it with numerous jobs, and have found it to work like clockwork. Sure there is no chance of 100% drop, but I've gotten the drop with this in my MH more than not, and that says a lot for someone who spends most of his time "farming".

Example (something simple):

Farming for beehive chips (20 per job before desk)
SAM/RNG - 14/50
RNG/RNG - 17/50
BST/RNG - 13/50
THF/RNG - 34/50
Farming for beehive chips (20 per job with desk)SAM/THF - 25/50
RNG/THF - 28/50
BST/THF - 28/50
THF/RNG - 44/50

Tested also on 3 Papy runs.
3 papy drops within the 1st 20 min. on 3 out of 4 occassions.

Believe what you want....I think it works.

All of the job combinations used before the desk, except for one, had no thief main or sub.

After the desk, everything has /thf or thief main... Treasure hunter is definitely going to affect your drops.
You should have used the same combinations.

Umm look at his job levels. RNG and BST aren't even high enough to get TH from its sub. Are you too lazy to check or something?
#REDACTED, Posted: May 12 2005 at 8:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow you must be pretty stupid. I wonder why i got more drops with a THF SUB!!!!! In your second run u subbed Thf for all jobs or was a thf. In the first you subbed ranger. Wow you are pretty stupid

Thanks for posting your experiences with this -- would you be willing to elaborate on a few details?

I'm curious to know -- is your Millionaire Desk CP effect the dominant Moghancement in your house, or Darkness the dominant Element? Also, regarding the rumor about needing to have 1+ million gil on your person, have you ever experienced it?

I also notice that all your Post-Desk stats have Thief as part of the job combo, have you noticed any effect if THF is not selected?

# May 12 2005 at 1:30 PM Rating: Default
Please it says +2 to TH "NOT" adds treasure hunter effect, so if you dont already have TH it does nothing for you, and no it doesnt stack. If if added TH effect to anyjob it would be MUCH more then it is.
# Nov 01 2006 at 5:57 PM Rating: Decent
You said that in order to get the hidden effect, which is still in debate, u will need to have thf as ur main or sub, right? Just b/c u dont have thf as either of these does NOT mean you wont get it. Its like the Rostrum Pumps. They enhance the "Fast cast" effect, but only for WHM/BLM/BRD/SMN. Notice how none of these jobs get fast cast as their main. Even though they do not have it, they will still get the fast cast enhancement, even w/o being /rdm. when something enhances it, it basically adds on to it, even if you do not have that trait. just throqing in my say in the matter.
# May 12 2005 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
ok first off i dont know if it really does have TH +2, but if it does you WILL have it with ANY job and it WILL stack with regular TH/TH2.

Thid desk on my server last month was going for about 2.4 Mil..now it has dropped to 900-1Mil.
# May 12 2005 at 5:58 AM Rating: Decent
Man, This desk is Sweet...and for under 600k....it should be worth atleast 2 Mil easy....I'm sure the price will go up once people realize the effect it gives....I'd still buy it for the price......Looks like I need to work on Goldsmithing!!!
Some proof please?

If anyone has the time, could someone please run some tests on drops rates? I understand people saying that it increses drop rates are trying to be helpful, but its not evidence really, just a best guess.
# May 05 2005 at 7:09 AM Rating: Decent
i have know clue if this stacks, but i do know this does increase the drops it is so nice. if you do end up purchasing the other desk let me know if it is a multiple stack

does the hidden effect stack so i can put 10 of these in my mh?
I swear...
# May 04 2005 at 8:04 AM Rating: Decent
Whoever thinks this desk does not increase Drops is Sadly mistaken.. I purchased it 1 full day ago and played for 13 hours, my drops increased dramatically (pal/rng) it seems though that people on my server Sylph really dont know what this thing does because I seem to have found it reasonably cheap 580k. If you have the gill want to get it do so.. it does add to your drop rate. also make sure it is the only yhting in your MH i tried adding Extra Dark Energy like Ancient blood it gave me Desynthsis.. also having the 20% conquest boost is a very nice plus[Black]also having the 20% conquest boost is a very nice plus[/Black]

you guys aren't reading it right! It doesn't give Th2 it adds a +2 to TH! Meaning you need to have THF sub or as Main! It does work I have it and I get drops all the time coffer keys fall left and right. Remember TH doesn't really help all that much with common items it's really useful with Rare drops!

Actually, any item effect that says "(Job Trait)" + (insert number) means that the item will give you that job trait regardless of what job you are playing. Also, TH works equally well for common and rare items because it merely ups the chance that the mob will drop an item (or so I believe).

EDIT: thank you for correcting that, Pharel! Now I know... :)

Last time I checked, + meant addition, which isn't multiplication. That would be x or *. A simple bit of evidence would be the Indra Katars.


They give Triple Attack +1% to War, Mnk, Rdm, or Drk. None of those jobs has Triple Attack, but they get it with these Katars equipped. So a % does give that job the trait.

Things that don't give the traits would be "Enhances Suchandsuch effect." As far as I know, no item that simply lists "Enhances..." actually gives the trait. People have thought that Tatami shield does so, because it "Enhances All Killer Traits," but I have yet to see any job without Killer Traits intimidate anything while wearing it. (Unless they had a Circle from another job to give them a Killer Trait temporarily.)

And, even though I have never owned a Millionaire Desk, I believe it would give TH+2 if it added anything. If it simply gave, TH2, it would make Thieves obsolete. However TH+2 means it would only further enhance their Treasure Finding abilities, and keep them on top still.

Merely getting TH2 from an item wouldn't make THF obsolete, THF is also a DDing madman (or woman) when it comes to parties.

Obviously there's someone on one of my LSs who hasn't grasped that concept that it only enhances TH (I am trying to to give out his name, either). He's been on the LS raving about how "it makes my TH turn into TH3 because it gives +2 to TH." Treasure Hunter 3? Uh-huh, yeah, right. Then what say you to all those Steal+ items?

This is slightly incorrect. The Koenig Shield has Enhance "Beast Killer" effect. As a PLD/WAR, I do not have the Beast Killer trait to begin with, yet I intimidate Beast-type mobs fairly regularly with it.

The Tatami Shield just has Enhances Killer Traits, the word ALL is not in the description. It gives a noticable increase to any traits you have from any source, whether it be from job traits, or equipment like Hrotti or one of the earrings. It does not, however, give you any killer traits you do not already have.

Thats another item, then, that does add the effect to jobs that dont have it. My mistake for missing it. Thank you for the info.

What craft skill is this (I would assume smithing, because it is a darksteel desk, but I have no idea anyways) and what level is needed to craft it, and what Items are needed in the recipe? If anyone wants to sell one on Midgardsormr I would be happy to buy it =3

From what I've heard personally (people around Seraph and other high lvls) is that you have to have 1m on you for it to work, among other things posted by others earlier. I'm not sure if it's a rumor or not and maybe some of you have heard of this as well. At any rate people, just putting my two cents in like everyone else on the effects of this desk. I do know that it does work and it's helped quite a few of my friends that lack the time or effort to put into the THF job.

I don't know if this desk works or not....but i read all about this argument and asked to GM if there were some hidden effects. He told me that if there are he can't tell me..so it can be possible o_o

I bought it and placed in my mog house. I choosed that furnishing that give my MH a dark strenght and my moogle tell me: your hope is glow with faint dark energy....

Yesterday did dynamis widurst. 7 AF + 2 relic and we didn't finish it o_o;;

Today i will camp Sozu again...if it will drop for me Millionarie Desk works...

Just my 2 cents

The Conquest Point increasment is enough for me to pay 1mil for it. TH2, not sure if it works but who cares when you can get aketons 3x faster then usual.
NO Th2

This desk gives a bonus to Conquest Points gained while fighting, about 20% more. This is fact

I dont buy it
# Apr 02 2005 at 11:03 PM Rating: Decent
I dont buy it for a second. There are too many rumors spreading in this game. I'm sure that people rush to judgements on things, like "Wow I just got the Leaping Boots drop! It must be because of that desk I just bought!" Coincidences happen people, please dont spread rumors and make fools out of others. CHR does not affect Dancing Edge, having the Millionaire's Desk doesnt give you TH2, being around the same lvl as a mob does not increase the drop rate, and being a Mithra in game and a guy in rl is not a crime!
RE: I dont buy it
# Apr 02 2005 at 11:50 PM Rating: Default
don't you know that any WS's that are 5+ hits or more require CHR to increase damage. Why else do you think that THF Relic Armor has CHR increases?
RE: I dont buy it
# Apr 10 2005 at 12:21 AM Rating: Decent
Hey.....dont rate me down just cause i was reporting on what i was told by two different sources ;; I saw on the message boards that CHR affects Dancing Edge but when i asked my high lvl LS about it they said it didnt. I dont really understand why CHR affects 5+ hit ws, just makes no sense. But since everyone seems to think so i guess ill have to believe it. I personally havent experienced any difference in DE damage with more chr, so it must not affect it by too much.

It has nothing to do with 5 hit weaponskills directly.

Each weaponskills have different formulas as to how they are calculated, damage wise. Of course, strenght and your attack rating affects em (attack rating less because of SATA that maximise it I beleive? I dont know about SATA, im talking about WS right now anyway). But each weaponskills have modifiers, that are known because they were published in official JP guides and from various official sources, among other things.

Anyway, for exemple, Spirit Taker has a int and mind modifier. Dancing edge has a dext and a chr modifier. Shark Bite is a dext modifier only, etc.

So does the TH effect stick onto any job or do you have to have Thief equipped as either your main or sub job?
