I don't see this mentioned here, but I just learned (since I needed 357 points to break it [and I got 57 points in Dynamis tonight]) that you cannot use your weapon and expect to gain points for it in Dynamis. They will not count sadly.

Ah how I miss that Scythe, but it was pretty easy to unlock the 300 pts. Went to Kuftal and just closed Darkness on the crabs with a Pld friend of mine.

The real problem was getting help for the WSNM, the place is a very link happy area but a 75 Bst soloed it for me.

Did this quest, got a lv 70 pld to go to top floor of Castle Oztroja and we did lv 3 sc.

Swift Blade + Cross Reaper = 5 points. need 300

did not take long at all maybe 2hrs 30mins.

then went to kill the NM right after so all in all about 4hrs to do this.

Ok i did this quest yesterday. and i was thinking i should post some more info about it.
especially the den of rancor and nm part.
To get to the ??? u have to go through the entrance from temple of uggelpi. Then go to the ??? where u spawn Hakutaku, If you dont know where that ??? is check the Hakutaku info. When your at that ??? go left at the port and jump down. The Scythe WSNM ??? is a bit to the right from there. Clear the adds. Like 2 mouuse and a bat or something.

The NM is hecteyes. Which means it have FiragaIII
><; And he will use it. I dont know if we where lucky or not but he only used firagaIII once. he sure used his paralyze attack alot tho ; ;

So be sure to have stunners for tha Ga spells. we had 2 and that was enough.

Our pt setup was 72drk(me)72pld 72blm 71rng 71whm 70nin. The Nin was tanking and the pld backup tanked. i would actually recommend a ninja and pld if you wanna be sure. Since we got aggroed. There are alot of mobs down there. The pld tanked the add while we killed the nm.
Hope this helped someone...
point question
# Nov 30 2004 at 3:43 AM Rating: Decent
to get the 2,3 or 5 point bonusses from a renkei. does the WS you use have to be the skill that activates the renkei itself? or does it just have to be used in the renkei.
ex- say there was a sam and drk in a party, both level 72 with maxed skills.
if they did spinning slash > Tachi kasha, both both the drk and sam get 5 points? or would the drk get 1 while the sam gets 5.

if anyone could clear this up for me it would be greatly appreciated.

i've gotten the answer from varoius people in-game, it seems that to get the extra points from a renkei you have to be the one ending the renkei.

To elaborate on the information from SpazmasterX...
3. Scythe of Trials is used until Latent Effect disappears.

There's a point system. You must use the scythe until you accumulate 300 points, which is when the Latent effect deactivates. The system is as follows:

Using a Weapon skill: 1 point
Using a WS in a level 1 renkei: 2 points
Using a WS in a level 2 renkei: 3 points
Using a WS in a level 3 renkei: 5 points

The weapon skills must be done on easy prey mobs or higher.
5. Go to Den of Rancor. (J-13)
6. Investigate the "???".
7. A NM called Mokumokuren will appear. You have to defeat it.

You enter the Den of Rancor at the cross between E-4/5 and F-4/5. It's a long trek down to the ???, I advise bringing silent oils/prism powders, as if the mages are constantly stopping to recast sneak and invisible, there will be a much higher death/aggro rate. The ??? itself is at a dead end on the top map, so avoid any holes and/or ramps leading up or down. Mokumokuren is a hecteyes, and as such does cast and is decently physical resistant.

a little correction about precondition:

scythe skill only has to be 240.

since bst can equip the scythe and be able to gain the quest for spiral hell, bst scythe skill caps at 240.

Just because bst can use the scythe doesn't mean thier skill has to be able to hit 240. It just means you can use that job to get the points for unlocking the weapon skill.
