These are up to 1.5mil on Remora ^^ I can't say I'm sad though. >:D I just did Wings of Fury and got one of these ^^ Hello 1.5mil =D (I know I'm a WHM, but I think making 1.5mil is better then having 5 more MP)
ouch huh

Just sold one for 2,000,000 on Valefor. Used to be 1 mill or just under 1-2 months ago.

Can't explain what the hell happend to our "stable" economy but all i know is i need the money. Haub went from 2m-->5m

kote 800---> 4m
etc etc etc

everything keeps going up, so its only fair the money you get for these things goes up too.

This ring currently goes for about 1.6mil on Garuda.

Me and a friend and their friend just trioed it today as 3 20BSTs. We got the drop on the second try, and needless to say I'm pretty happy :D
1 Mil?? I wish

I'm on asura (damn me for playing on the monst inflated server of the game) and I wish astrals were 1 million! Astrals last i checked are going for 2.2 million a piece and have gone as high as 2.8! tell me thats not a rip off. I'll go take my chances on a bcnm20 for that price any day and by the way everyone says its so easy i should be 2.2mil richer in the next few days :P. I'm just happy that my valk mask i paid 500k for is up to 1.5 mil.
I got the ring!

I got the ring on my 6th BCNM and the leader made it so i would get all the items then the other member of my party said that he wanted to sell it and i said fine*sigh* so i gave it to the leader and he sold it. We were supposed to keep doing BCNM til we got 3 drops of Astral ring but they havnt come on in a long time. So they got 50/50 of the profit and I got 0. lol but as long as I get 1 soon I don't mind^^
# Oct 10 2005 at 6:03 AM Rating: Decent

These rings are WAY OVER PRICED for what they are. I can get good mp via equipment and other things and really I as a whm elvaan I don't burn up alot of mps. I guess really these things are more for blm and smn scine they burn through mp like no other.

got a question(gonna get off topic for a sec)
i am a lv15blm (taru) got 2 astral rings. I was in a pt the tank was keeping good hate i put on the astrals and he got mad. said blm need int (got a good point) not astral rings. i run through mp fast debuffing,nuking, and backup heal. said astrals only 4 whm. is this right?
RE: N00B mage
# Jan 13 2006 at 8:17 PM Rating: Default
As a blm I wear astrals at the beginning of the battle. as soon as i burn through 25 mp, I replace one with my Int ring. Another 25 mp later the second one goes for another Int ring. I do the same thing with Drg/Whm, replacing them with whatever. At level 15 the astrals will put you at low HP and you run the high risk of being oneshotted. Later on, they're good to use as swaps when you cast debuffs, buffs and other such things.

# Oct 09 2005 at 1:25 AM Rating: Decent
How did you acquire these rings for level 15?
As a Taru I never find the need to get more mp(my downtime is high enough) and the reduction of HP to make that mp makes you more of a paper doll, then you were before you put them on. Some jobs do however benefit from the added MP such as Galka mages and summonors.

we got a Thunder Spirit Pact the first time (~80K) and an Astral on the second try (980K on Shiva) so it was a good investment of seals.

We did the fight on lightsday to reduce effectiveness of Drain and improve Charm succes. Partner BST had a Signa, I didn't have the Money Stick but I ate Tuna Sushi (+5 CHR) and our charm success rates were about the same, roughly 1/3 to 1/2.

I subbed WAR for emergency voking (there were a couple scary mischarms) and drank an Au Lait each fight. 1000 gil for Regen that lasts pretty much the entire fight is not too bad at all.

Im not going to fish out 800k for these rings and why does it say Convert 25hp to mp instead of saying -25 hp +25 mp same thing does it make it sound worse? Plus if this is from BCNM 20 means im am going to have to do that....

but 99.9 that the convert effect is instant (converting existing mp/hp) so when you equip the ring you will receive the boost and it will be as full as the mp/hp being converted

If this were the case, any mage could convert all of his hp to mp in a few seconds just by quickly equipping the ring on and off.

You're soooo lucky.

On Fairy, these are already going for 1.8 million a piece in Jeuno...which is the ONLY place you'll find them.
RE: hmm
# Sep 29 2005 at 7:01 AM Rating: Decent
convert to mp means the hp is converted to mp or vise versa, It simply means the existing hp will be converted whereas at item with +/- will add and remove the amount listed. The difference is generally unnoticable since most people will have enough hp to do the conversion however if you took the physical ring (covert 25 mp to hp) and you had less than 25 mp you would only recieve a bonus for the ammount of mp you have. so a war/thf wearing the ring would recieve no bonus to his HP unless he was wearing gear or eating food that gave him the mp to convert in hp. however the copper ring -1mp/+1hp would give the hp reguardless of the mp.
Also I am not 100% sure but 99.9 that the convert effect is instant (converting existing mp/hp) so when you equip the ring you will receive the boost and it will be as full as the mp/hp being converted, instead of merely getting the addition points then having to recover them(so if you have 100hp and mp and wore a astral ring the result would be 75/75hp 125/125mp/if you had the same 100hp and mp and put on a copper ring you would have 100/101hp and 99/100mp) hope this helps.

It isn't the gilsellers fault, because gilsellers don't ever do BCNMs. Maybe a select few times, but I don't think they really even have the skill of party communication / cooperation to actually succeed in doing so. All they are really good for is running around and voking Goobbue Gardeners, XD.

Treasures & Tribulations or Wings of Fury?
# Aug 18 2005 at 9:41 AM Rating: Decent
Alright, I am in a Debate with Thondarr my LS leader about which drops astrals better, and which is more worth it. He believes that Bcnm20 is more worth it than BCNM50. However I once posted a thread already getting feed back that BCNM 50 was better than 20. I am playing the PS2 Version of FFXI, so I need as many opinions about this as possible with all you who have had luck with AStral drops. I had to buy mine >>

THONDARR check this out :P

BCNM 20 Wings of Fury is soloable by a BST. which is probably the best way to go about getting your astrals with out having to spend a mil on them.

what LV should i use astrel rings
RE: astrel ring
# Aug 11 2005 at 3:20 AM Rating: Excellent
Astral* Ring: And I would say use them @ level 10 or ASAP, depending on when you get them.
# Jul 17 2005 at 3:24 PM Rating: Default
I hear alot of people say that this ring was removed from BCNM 20...I dunno if its true but if it is true i'm pissed cuz i need these for SMN and i don't have alot of money ; ;.
Well any info about this would be nice.
BTW: for BCNM20 one smn and one bst is all u need. Let ramuh attack colo-colo,bst charm one furie let it kill other one,if the one furie is killed let the furie attack colo-colo. Use Judgement Bolt with ramuh like two times and hoppa Colo-Colo is dead.
Crappy drop rate for Astrals tho... >.<"

Rank 3
Hades Server
Mains: THF40/NIN * * * BRD/WHM * * * SMN/WHM

Oh BTW if ur on Hades and u wanna hunt ANY KIND OF NM u gimme a tell i like to help u.

Don't worry - Astral Rings are a confirmed drop for BCNM20, even after the update. I got one myself a few nights ago with Wings of Fury. :)

To my knowledge, developers have been making certain changes in the hopes of easing the financial troubles of the game. Part of the way they are doing this is by making rare items a little easier to come by. I don't think they'll make things more difficult any time soon, although I would challenge them to make more items available through questing instead of fighting...

Did BCNM this afternoon got the ring and put it up for auction: 1,1 mil on server Hades

# Jul 10 2005 at 10:04 PM Rating: Decent
I did the BCNM20 for this. first time we pwned, second we got beat miserably and quit for the day. But I got my astral on the first drop. Ragnarok Server, like 400-800k (wide range), hoping to do another and get lucky. Just got to be persistant.

P.S. are all the servers putting mules outside of Jeuno 'cause of the taxes???
