[edit] Notorious Monsters and Drops

Visit VwNM's for a complete list and visual guide.

[edit] Riftworn Pyxis

There are five lights that enhance the spoils from the Riftworn Pyxis. Their alignment values can be enhanced to produce the following benefits per cell (trade up to 3 cells max/per type):

  • Blue: Quantity of drops +50% (150% max). (Affected by Cobalt Cell)
  • Red: Quality of drops +50% (150% max). (Affected by Rubicund Cell)
  • Yellow: Experience Points Gained +25% (75% max). (Affected by Xanthous Cell)
  • Green: Cruor Gained +25% (75% max). (Affected by Jade Cell)
  • White: Increases chances of Atmacite and Periapt obtainment.

The alignment values for the above can be enhanced via Cells, by triggering the monster’s weakness, Treasure Hunter and by possessing certain alignment-enhancing periapts.

[edit] Ascent Items

Trade “ascent items” to a Planar Rift ahead of a battle. Doing so will enhance alignment values for that player only. Up to three of each cell type can be traded to the Planar Rift.

Ascent items can be obtained in the following ways:

Ascent Items Description Where to obtain Cost
Cobalt Cell Quantity of drops (Blue) Voidwatch Officer 3,000 Cruor
Voidwatch Purveyor 2,000 Conquest Points/Imperial Standing/Allied Notes
Treasure Casket Brown Chest from various areas with a Grounds Tome.
Rubicund Cell Quality of drops (Red) Voidwatch Officer 3,000 Cruor
Voidwatch Purveyor 2,000 Conquest Points/Imperial Standing/Allied Notes
Treasure Casket Brown Chest from various areas with a Grounds Tome.
Xanthous Cell Experience Points (Yellow) Voidwatch Officer 3,000 Cruor
Voidwatch Purveyor 3,000 Conquest Points/Imperial Standing/Allied Notes
Treasure Casket Brown Chest from various areas with a Grounds Tome.
Jade Cell Cruor gained (Green) Voidwatch Purveyor 2,000 Conquest Points/Imperial Standing/Allied Notes
Treasure Casket Brown Chest from various areas with a Grounds Tome.

[edit] Voidwatch Weaknesses

At the start of any Vw fight, 9 weakness triggers are chosen randomly, with 6 being normal, 2 being high, and 1 being extremely vurnerable. These come in the forms of job/pet abilities, weapon skills, and magic spells and can be triggered at anytime during the fight. Once a trigger has been hit, a new trigger will be chosen of the same type that was hit.

  • NOTE: Some monsters are completely immune to certain triggers and this can result in poor lights at the end of the fight.

Striking a VwNM's weaknesses will enhance alignment values for all combatants.

  • Alignment values increased via ascent items are reset when the player opens a Riftworn Pyxis.
  • Alignment values increased by striking enemy weaknesses are reflected in pyxis content and reset at the end of battle.
  • Enhanced values will not benefit combatants who did not expend a Voidstone at the commencement of battle. In this case, the portion of alignment enhanced via ascent items will be carried over.

[edit] Battle Information

In order to obtain items you must posses a Voidstone. When gathered at a Planar Rift, everyone in the alliance with a voidstone will lose their stone. Those who do not posses a stone will still receive experience and cruor. You can fight NMs in both the present and the past, depending on which stage you are on.

There is a 30-minute time limit on all battles. Signet and Sigil have no effect and you will receive Voidwatcher status during the battle. Each person who possessed a Voidstone at the start of battle will have their own reward in the chest. To enhance the drops, you can trade Ascent Items before the battle starts (these only affect the individual who made the trade). If you fail to defeat the monster due to everyone dying or to timing out, your Ascent Items will be saved at that Planar Rift. They will also be saved upon zoning and if you go to a different zone and fight/defeat a new Voidwatch Monster. To ensure that the monster is not popped before everyone is ready, any person who checks the Planar Rift will be given a drop-down menu similar to popping Key Item Notorious Monsters in Abyssea. Once popped the monster will automatically engage the person who popped it. Once engaged the monster can give hints to trigger !! weaknesses and can give multiple triggers.

  • Be aware that if you stray too far from the location of the Planar Rift during the battle you will be stripped of your Voidwatcher status and be unable to aid your party.

After defeating the monster, a Riftworn Pyxis will appear where the Planar Rift was. Each person must check the Riftworn Pyxis to receive their reward(s). The items are NOT pooled together like a normal, defeated monster and thus items received can only be obtained by each individual. If the Riftworn Pyxis is not checked within a certain amount of time (3min), it will disappear with the treasure still inside.

[edit] Rewards

Upon expending a Voidstone, a player will receive items, exp, cruor, and possibly a Atmacite or a Periapt. Below is the base level of xp and cruor per stage and will be multiplied by a players yellow/green spectral alignment at the end of the battle.
