I also just tested this, and came up with 3.. :-/

A Taru Footstool and a Rusty Bucket, and they cancelled each other out.

Tarutaru stools are lightning, and 2. rusty bucket is water ... they are different types of energy. max dark=2. max lightning=2. 2-2=0. cancel themselves out. not sure what strenght the bucket is, but the site says element water, so probably 1 or 2 water strength. regardless, 1/2 <= 2 Dark of Desk, so....

Elemental strength of 2 for the Desk.

Does anyone know how much energy this gives? I'm trying to bump my moghouse energy up, but I can't use pieces stronger than 9 (I don't want to overpower the Bonecraft furnishing).
thanks bro

LoL... i was reading the posts on this, and it's funny to see how this Desk went from maybe 150k to almost or over 1 mil (depending on the server) hehe, it's funny to see prices before the Gilsellers took over the game.

Anyways, i've got a bunch of crap in my MH, Except this desk. 800k+ on Seraph Server last i checked, and i have more important things to spend my Gil on, then a desk that no one is really sure if it works. If it does, wonderful, i'm happy for anyone who has one. If it doesnt work, then at least i wasnt suckerd out of 800k+ lol. Maybe someday, i'll know someone who can Synth one for me, for just the cost of materials ( and a little more, cause i'm nice like that ^^ )

Anyways, Good Luck to anyone who is in search for this desk... Just be cautious of the price..
Confirmation of Hidden TH2
# Jan 07 2005 at 2:10 PM Rating: Default
Okay, I ran a test after I bought this item (only reason I bought it was to test if it did have TH2, and now that I know it does, I am SOOO Keeping it).

My test was help my wife's mule get her Sub-Job items, my wife's main char get her Carbuncle ruby, and me get my marble tablet from the lizards in yuhtunga jungle for teleport altep quest.

Results: Damselfly Worm on first Damselfly; Crab Apron on second Crab; Magicked Skull first Ghoul; Carbuncle Ruby third Leech; Marble Tablet thingy second Lizzard. All in the span of two hours for transportation...

This may not prove it to some of you, but it proves it to me. That luck is too lucky in too short of time for it to be coincidence.....

PS: I have also noticed in general partying and leveling that item drops are more frequent, and the rarer drops are more common as well...

I'm not sure that proves anything for me personally. Are you already a Thief with TH2? Because if you are then those drops would be common anyway.

My THF friend and i got 3 carbuncle rubies in 5 minutes and we weren't really trying. And those subjob items already fall juust about every time for her. As for the tele-altep item , i had to get mine without her so i don't know how long that woulda taken with TH2 helping.

And No she does not have Millionarre's desk.

I have not seen these hidden effects listed on any other website so far. Mysterytour says "Conquest?"

Why doesn't SE come out and tell us what the hell these things do...or Bradygames release a decent strat guide that tells as well...but bradygames sucks so that is out of the question.
I'd like to buy this but it is 400-500k on Alexander. I'll shell out the cash for it, but what would be the point if it doesn't even do what it claims to.

Desk scam
# Nov 13 2004 at 2:06 PM Rating: Default
I recently heard about the desks abilities and after much research I have found no conclusive evidence that proves it has the Th +2 or synthesis up ability. Although I can't prove without a shadow of a doubt it is false I can say there is nothing supporting the idea that it does have those abilities and most of the testimonies I found don't seem to be anymore then coincidence and show no average increase of drops. There fore in my opinion the hidden abilities claimed to be possessed by the millionaire’s desk don't exist and where probably made up by someone wanting to make a few extra gil selling the item. Due to the nature of the ability and the "luck Factor" there is no real way to prove or disprove the hidden effects so whether or not it is real can never be proven unless SE decides to put out a guide showing the hidden effects which isn't very likely. In conclusion believe what you want but don't go crying to me when it doesn't work and you find you just wasted you gil, and don't send me messages saying "It really works, your stupid!" because you got a few lucky drops, because once again there is no way to prove or disprove it so whether or not to believe it is all up to you.

P.S. other furnishings can give you the conquest ability also so the desk is nothing special. :P

Ive got a testemonial from my friend with this desk,he bought it, about a week later, he was strolling thru ronfaure and killed Jack for the first time (THF50) Charm dropped, then latter while farming necklaces in Giddeus, he snagged the Torrent and got Signa, and later got the Hunter's Long Bow or w/e its called from the other NM. Idk if the desk has ANYTHING to do with it, but ive camped these NM (- the Long bow) and have killed them MANY times w/o a drop. Just my input ^^, i believe this DOES give +TH, synthesis, idk and dont care

The only other furnishings that give conquest MH are the rank 10 flags. Perhaps you're thinking of Moghancement: Region which is totally different.

I just got mine synthed by a lvl 100+3 goldsmither and he only charge me material cost + 100k. It was nice of him because 5 have sold on my server, and all between 400k-800k.

This item shouldn't cost more than 150k in materials, if that even, for me it cost 120k.
I'll confirm the recipe here listed in a previous post because it worked ^^.

2xGold Sheet
1xAncient Lumber
1xPlatinum Sheet
1xDarksteel Sheet

For the record, when I asked the JP synther about it, he had no knowledge of either THII or any crafting bonus and I personally thought he was laughing at me for even thinking that. So I have only had it in for a brief amount of synths(maybe 30) and haven't noticed any real improvement if any.

So I'll report back if something strikes my attention. If not it goes on the AH for 500k profit ^^.

So, is this desk rare? And if not, does having more increase the hidden effects or just the strength of whatever element it is?

...and is that the JayGCN of GameFAQs fame? He's a DRG like that JayGCN, I know that. Types like him too.

I still have mine. I quit tracking results. However I read something about the Carbunkles Ruby and it made me realize this... I happen to kill 2 leeches while fighting in Shakrami Maze and got a Ruby by accident. Then the other night I went ot help a whm friend get hte Ruby and it only took 5 minutes to get the drop.

On the other hand my Lizzy drop rate seems bad lately. Not sure whats going on. It almost coincides with attaining a higher level.

# Dec 12 2004 at 9:01 PM Rating: Decent
Hmmm, I recently put one of these in my mog house and the other day I was running through rolanberry and happened to kill one poison leech and got a Carbuncle Ruby. I once spent like three hours killing poison leeches in Buburimu with my sister looking for one for her and we got nothing....

I don't want to believe in the whole Treasure hunter thing, but I can say this: as I was leveling my Summoner/Whitemage from level 5-10, I did notice that the drop rate on mobs was indeed better... I am still doing tests.

Conquest points:
Region: Zuklheim
Area: La Theine Platue
Nation In control: Bastok
Nation of Affiliation: Bastok
Rank: 6
CP gained from a Even Matched Orc: 16

If I am correct, 10% of your kill's Exp value is your CP value. So that would make this desk increase your CP by 60%?

NOTE:It has a really weak Moghancement. So if you want the moghancement, the desk is the only thing you can have in your Moghouse.

Region: Zuklheim

Rank: 6
CP gained from a Even Matched Orc: 16

That isn't much of an increase. The way conquest points work: (this is from memory, some figures might be off)

Nation in 1st in weekly rank:
home nation controls region - 20% of exp
beastmen control region - 15% of exp
other nation has region - 10% of exp

Nation in 2nd or 3rd in weekly rank:
home nation controls region - 15% of exp
beastmen control region - 15% of exp
other nation has region - 10% of exp

I believe the rank 10 conquest flags give you 20% of exp regardless of regional control, although I haven't tested this thoroughly yet.
RE: So I bought one:
# Nov 01 2004 at 11:47 AM Rating: Decent
Your CP isn't 10% of your xp.. it's exponential. Like.. you'll get more CP from killing an Even Match for 100 xp than 3 Easy Preys for 36 a piece.

140-150k on unicorn just got mine gona try out with THF lv 60 and RDM lv 55 see the diffrence and see if it adds up with Treasur hunter making it TH4 maybe thats why main thfs noticed a diffrence cause they had TH4... but im gona find out and tell u ill try and do a chart take care
RE: desk
# Jan 13 2005 at 1:08 AM Rating: Default
there is no such thing as TH4 lol.

desk gives TH+2 not TH2.
a thf at 45 only brings drop rate up by 10%.
TH+2 would be +2% drop rate each point is +1%
so not even that big a deal.

I bought this desk on Sylph the other day for 250k... I tested the conquest points, because that's actually measureable... it was exactly +20% CP. I couldn't confirm the TH+2 ability, but I went to help a friend get his lich paper and it dropped after about 10 kills. We had 4 of us with a thf sub however, so that might have helped too. I think i might just sell it and get my smithing up to a respectable level like 50 and start making money that way...

What's your rank? Nationality? Do you know if you were in a beastman/other country/your country controlled area? What place was your country in the conquest tally? And lastly, were you in the same party as the person you were testing this with? Or solo?
RE: Worth it? Who the hell knows?
# Oct 15 2004 at 3:18 AM Rating: Decent
Rank 6, San d'oria, nation was in 2nd place. This was in Gustav Tunnel fighting gobs and crabs. I'm lvl 58 pld. I was in the same party as another person and we checked our conquest points before we started, and then again after a bunch of fights and I got 20% more CP than him in that time. The person I compared to was also sand'orian, and also had rank 6.

I'm a mad leaping lizzy hunter on Ifrit, as everyone well knows...but anywayz, the first day i got the desk, i got 3 leaping boots, but then lately, I killed like 10 more leaping lizzys and no drops, SO this is just a theory ( i make up a lot) it probably has to do upon how many areas you enter...example.. Doesn't work [next area]> Works > doesn't works > works > doesn't works

each ">" means entering another area, i could be senile, but its just a theory, since looking back on "yenrab"'s post...but I'm crazy @.@

I have not noticed an increase in Conquest Points, although I definitely, most certainly have the Key Item "Moghancement: Conquest" whose description is "Awards more individual conquest points when defeating an enemy". So, who knows. You might need rank 5 for this thing to activate, I don't really know.
