Feast of Swords
Posted by: Mirriam -Thu Apr 28th, 2005 04:42 am EDT
This event is relatively simple, but time consuming. First, talk to the Moogle in the city of your choice. 2 moogles in each city. The Moogle will give you a wooden katana. Ah, but this is only the start. Time to go fight some evil Armors! (The story here is pretty loose, so just play along.) Head outside the city, equip your katana and talk to the "Nomad Moogle" in whichever zone you choose. So far, most zones I've seen have a Nomad Moogle and Armors running around. You must equip the katana first, and you must talk to the Nomad Moogle in order to fight the Armor mobs. You will be level-capped at 1. While you are level-capped, no regular mobs will be able to attack you, and you will not be able to attack them. You will also not lose xp if you die.

Now that you're level capped, run around in search of the Armor mobs. It's best to do these right outside the city, because the more people you have killing these mobs, the better. The Armor mobs are in full Samurai AF2 gear, complete with the extra speed. They are hard to catch, and they will only stay still for about 30 seconds before running off again and leaving you in the dust. A ranger sub is very helpful.

The Armor mobs don't hit for much damage, but they have 2 unpleasant special attacks. Edge of Death is a special that takes everyone around to 1 hit point. Aetheral Toxin is their second special, which is essentially diaga.

After you've gone out and beat on the mobs for awhile, you can head back to the Moogle to trade him your katana (you will get it back) to show him how much "aura" you've absorbed. You will receive 1 Mochi for every hit you've dealt that particular mob, up to 12. (If you hit the Galkan Armor 5 times, you will receive 5 Galka Mochis, and so on.) The Mochi are costume items that cause the player to look like a boy when used, of the race specified, for a few minutes. If you hit each of the 4 mob types 12 times or more each, or if you deal the death blow to one or more of the Armors, you will get a hardwood katana.
