I also can only use the level 10 Faceguard or just nothing. So how can i get one of the other possible headgears that are listed in the first post? I want my NPC to wear a Seer's Crown or something like that that's good for a healer like my NPC is.

The funny thing is, they absolutely *SPECIFICALLY* addressed this very misconception in the last patch. If you do "let's chat" the NPC will explain that the gear you see on them *may not necessarily be the gear you think it is.*

After killing monsters for about 19 minutes on the first floor of Promyvion - Dem, my group of friends went up to the second floor and looked for the ??? there. When we were finished after 30 minutes, Pakurara (my npc) gained 2000 Experience points.

Edit: Heals was able to count lol. 22 kills on the first floor, 6 kills on the second floor.

Went to do the promy quest today, again, after dropping my tactics pearl and waiting till after conquest tally. Was given the quest again and then went to promy-dem.

Killed 22 mobs on the first floor, touched the ??? and went to the 2nd floor and killed 6 mobs. Touched the ??? on the 2nd floor and let npc warp me back to start, and npc got 2000 xp.

Hope that helps, but it would seem 2000xp would be cap for 2nd floor? Not entirely sure... :x

For those able to do the 3rd weapon upgrade, what level was your NPC and what quests did you do/timeframe?

At 51, I can't upgrade to the thrid great kanta Kanesada.

Blighted Gloom quest update: I was sent to Korroloka Tunnel for this quest, and found the ??? at F-9/10 on the second map - this is the map that contains the tunnel full of Bogy mobs that leads to the NIN quest leeches.

Apparently Alla doesn't have a picture of the second map, or I'd link to it.

I was able to give my npc the Kanesada about an hour ago. I did the food quest a day after the update, I did the genkei quest this afternoon and npc dinged 51 at around 5pm est. I've also done the promy quest. Nothing else besides those, though.

Well, I talked to Luto after doing promy/npc51/food quest and she said something about being able to give my npc more weapons, or something.

I posted an edit informing readers that the quest is most likely available only once per week.

Also, you have to drop the old Tactics Pearl in order to get a new one - otherwise it will inform you that you need to organize your inventory before you can get another pearl. No negative affects should follow since it is something you are required to do to complete the quest for the new pearl. =)

I can't get the Promy NPC Escort quest from the RP. However, I do have the CN escort with Olavia flagged. Does the only one escort quest at a time apply to getting the Promy NPC one as well?

Just did 2nd tactics pearl quest and my 3rd weapon upgrade today, my NPC is now lvl 40, with a hydro axe, so lvl def. isnt a prerequisite, i would guess its either ur bond or how many times youve summoned him/her, Also, If i got a pearl today, does that mean id have to wait til next sunday to get a new one if i use all the charges?

One last thing, Someone of KillingIfrit got the 4th weapon upgrade quest, the 4th GA (if he was telling the truth, he had a screenshot) is the Voulge.

Here's something very interesting I just found my NPC doing. Those of you who have your NPC set to healers might enjoy this news. It seems the better relationship you have with your NPC the smarter they become. I was leveling her today and noticed that she would call out "Weapon Skill ready!" as usual, but when I got 100% she didn't go. The mob we were fighting was almost dead at the time. She opened the next battle immediately with Penta Thrust.

I thought this was just a glitch or something, so I paid better attention the next few fights. The mob was at 50% health, she said she had TP, I got TP, and she did her WS as per usual.
I wanted to test this theory of mine, so I got myself to 90% TP, waited until the mob was close to death and Sahyu got TP, then turned around and hit the mob to get 100%. Sahyu didn't use her WS again.

Looks like they can get smarter afterall. Hopefully this applies to their use of spells as well!

yadayada, complated the Blighted Gloom quest. My NPC was lv51, male Hume, long brown hair. His alternative headgear is a Sallet, ew.

After that I binge-levelled with my new Tactics Pearl until my NPC hit 54. Talked to Luto and received 4th weapon upgrade. My NPC uses a polearm and Demetrio on KI said he traded a Voulge... mine accepted a Lance. I'm assuming weapons of lv30-35 are viable choices.

Has anyone tried raising affinity by using talk while EXPing?

How about trading with the NPC??

relationship will explain why I cant get the quests for my NPC since, she did die few calls ago and went down to lizard gear, even though she gained lvl after that but she is still in lizard gear, she is lvl 45 now...

while my bro's NPC who is in Mythirl breastplate, resulted him in getting food quest...

I guess I got few more calls to go... oh well this means few more dead Monticores in Western altep.

Gear changes are pretty random and don't "downgrade" or "upgrade" if they die. Mine seems to have a liking for Lizard body armor... he went from Mythril > Lizard > Iron > Lizard > lv1 RSE > Chocobo Tunica > Lizard x_X he's level 54 and died maybe three times, and he still wears Lizard even now.

You can, i would say.

Yesterday i got myself a Cheriot Band and me and a friend of mine went to Altepa to level on Manticores.

>> I casted Utsusemi:Ichi on myself
>> I used Food after
>> Then i called my NPC

After that i tried to use the Cheriot Band. Said "You can't use the item." or something like that. I tried a second time, said the same. I waited a few seconds and moved around a little bit and then i was able to use the Cheriot Band!

About the headgears:

Well, even if the armor hasn't any effects like the player-armor would has how do i unlock other headgers?

Oh and:

Thanks to Prim für the help so far! =)

There seems to be a delay on using enchanted equipment, abilites etc after you call your npc, 5-10 seconds delay. Seen it often as BST, cannot use call beast ability right after summoning NPC, have to wait a few moments.

does dropping the tactics pearl lower your npc fellows "friendship" like it does when you drop the regular signal pearl or is it unaffected?
#98 Oct 17 2005 at 8:17 AM Rating: Good
If you took the time to READ the thread, you would know that the answer is NO.

You CAN use Exp. Rings with your NPC - I use my Chariot Band everytime I call him - I level BLM with my NPC.

And yes there is a delay on use of any abilities, enchanted items, or consumables after you call your NPC. Lasts about 5-10 secs. as a previous poster already stated. Just wait a few and then retry if you find you have a problem. =)

I debunked my theory as to why I couldnt get the NPC Promy quest. I thought it was because i had an Escort quest flagged, so i unflagged it and then tried summoning NPC from a Promy Rendezvous Point. Still no luck.

My NPC is 50.5+
Finished the new Food Quest.
Done 2 Weapon Upgrades.
NPC has never died.

I tried talking to my NPC over and over until she offered promy quest but still nothing. At RP she gets stuck on some thing about 'Palmetto...' then when I am xping her she gets stuck saying she is halfway to level.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I got the prom quest on the weekend.

NPC was stuck talking about Palmetto (little girl), so I left the RP, and then went back, first time talking about quests and I get the Prom message.


The above poster should be able to get the prom quest, not sure whas wrong.
