Genkai I[edit]

The first Genkai's level requirement is 50 as opposed to the other Genkai's. -Cacawate 7/16/07

A skilled Rdm/nin can solo the Bomb coal and the Exoray mold. I have yet to try to solot he lichs yet but i think it will be harder. Bricin on remora server. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Miroqu (talkcontribs).

  • 49RDM/20BLM tried to solo it. Full buffs (stoneskin/phalanx/ice spikes/haste/en spell/etc). He basically walked right over me. 100+ damage a hit. wasnt hitting him for much either. I wouldnt recommend it without help. ~Aerion - Ifrit server~
    • The "RDM can solo this" is likely if you can kite the monster and DOT it to death.--Wpause 04:44, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

lvl 50 BST's should be able to solo the Crawlers nest and Garlaige parts. There are usable pets in the area but you'll need to know how to solo Tough monsters. Necropolis is not soloable by a level 50 bst.--Wpause 04:44, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

I start by saying i was lucky on my Lich drop 1/1 but i was able to solo all of Genkai 1 on bst/dnc as for the lich my pet did die and i would have had to call another if i had needed to continue i did not get out with out a fair bit of tanking on my part thx to ice spikes the para made snarl miss a few times but it is possible to drop them w/o a familiared crab Jodaman 04:25, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

I completed the quest using the new Key Items method. Extremely easy, with /dnc and Spectral Jig. Only hiccup was in the Necropolis where i fell through a bone pile and down a level with my jig wearing off. Otherwise piece of cake took maybe an hour with warp scrolls.--Mournlin 14:13, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Collection method out of date?[edit]

I am not sure if this has been updated or if the title page is just wrong but I collected my key item "Exoray mold crumb" with only clicking on 1 ( possibly 2) of the ???s. Considering I've never even been on Map 3, I am positive I did not need to click all 3. (I am new to FFXI, so yes I am positive.)

EDIT: Nevermind, I see how the key items work. It becomes a non-Key item once you collect the 3 pieces. (I left to the Necropolis and collected all 3 pieces just to see and it gave me the Piece of ancient papyrus after collecting all 3 "shreds".
