Grab your mining hats and prepare for destinations unknown, as the next FINAL FANTASY XI version update will come a-shoveling in late January!

New Meeble Burrows research expeditions comprise the focus of this version update, along with other diamonds in the rough!

Glad they're giving as much attention to this as they did to Moblin Maze Mongers back in the day...

I hope this update includes the removal of the EX tag from Walk of Echoes coin drops that had been mentioned by the Dev. Team recently.

I've done meeble once, it's fun, but yeah Voidwatch clears are a higher priority.

Still, been meaning to do a shout for the first tier clear sometime soon. I've got a book I can use to clear goldwing, but not much help since a person would need to have a book inscribed similarly to join me on it. Goldwing drops some decent stuff (I'd love the Alcedo set for a PLD damage reduction set...) and from testimonials, he isn't hard. From doing the first tier burrows up to him with 2 others, I can also note that they aren't hard... and given the fact that one can do a whole tier at once with the number of pheromone sacks available, it seems pretty shoutable (now that I've taken a look at it).

You should try it. It's one of those things on a timer so if you really get into it, you'll lament the loss of all those tags that were lost.

There are a few nice things in there and you can realistically do every NM with 4-5.

Don't nerf embrava SE!

Nope, party of at least 3 required. It differs from the commonly-compared Maze Mongers in that aspect.

check your other thread. As noted there, it's a minimum entry requirement. So, no, two bst cannot solo it.
