Party Divide[edit]

This may seem silly to some...but I've been pondering this for a while now and couldn't really find the info anywhere and never get myself to actually test it in-game. That is, how exactly the Gil is divided between party members when you get Gil from a Coffer or from a Notorious Monster.
For a good while, I was thinking that the amount you get = times the amount of party members = the amount you'd get solo, in other words, what the monster dropped or the coffer had in. Everyone I talked about it with, thought the same way.
Now, after paying more attention to it while for example killing Ose 7 times, (0 Jerkins btw. \o/) solo, (6k 4 times) and duo (4,500-4,628-4,652), I can only guess the amount it would drop to a solo member, is divided by about 1.3, instead of the number of the members in the party. That as a duo party.
Now then, if we look at Amemet for example, there is a 6k drop recorded and when we killed it with a 3 member party, everyone got a bit over 3k.
The 1.3 modifier wouldn't work obviously if it always drops that 6k'ish, so it would have to be divided by 2, or something like that.

Well, that is as they say that. While it may be obvious for even most of the players, I decided to bring it up here since I did not manage to find anything about it anywhere else. ^^

Gil from mobs/chests/etc. are divided equally amongst party members, however, this is somewhat difficult to test given the variable amount of gil that they can drop (IIRC, there are mobs that always drop a static amount though).--User:Anthoron/Sig 12:35, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, I do find it a bit funky that I seem to get a static'ish amount from somethings solo, and then another static'ish amount with more people and it does not go with the "equal divide" really... Hmz, guess I shall continue the investigation.
Thanks for the input. ^^ Sore wa sore, kore wa kore... 15:32, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


Did Gilfinder come into play at all when numbers got skewed ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nynja (talkcontribs).

I actually noticed not long ago, that the Kupower - Treasure Hound also kicks in Gilfinder and it is indeed possible that it was messing things up for me. Can't really tell for sure since it was a while ago, but it would certainly explain this. ^^
