NPC Fellow armor change problem?Follow

For a couple week, I'm trying to upgrade my npc armor to lvl 11 bastok armor but it won't change equipment at all. Here what I been doing.

Here my current setup on my npc.
Body lvl 10 Sandy
Hand lvl 7 Sandy
Leg lvl 7 Bastok
Feet lvl 10 Sandy


First of all, I got 60k Fellow points to be able to lock my 4th pieces. Then I started to spam all my signal/tactic pearl in south gustaberg and kill only quadav for a couple day. After 2-3 days, it haven't change so I try to mix some kill. Sappling/quadav, Bird/lizard, lizard only. It never change after 2-3 weeks.

Before I upgrade the "Increase fashion advice limit", I didn't have problem at all to change my equipment. The proof is I made my leg to 7 Bastok before I decide to upgrade "Increase fashion advice limit". I already verify if I didn't lock leg by accident many time. I always lock body,hand,feet.

I wonder if anyone have the same problem as me?

Thank you.

I'd hazard a guess that to get unlocked equipment to change in the field we have to fight mobs that our fellows can actually receive exp from.

I too have tried to kill only beastmen (yagudo) in low-level areas with a few pearl charges but my fellow's hand equipment still hasn't changed (hands unlocked). (Currently it's "level 1 Windy" or Gloves.)

Actually your fellow can get an armor update by killing mobs in started areas.

1. The nation type armor, must be higher >>> dominant in region.
2. also help if you kill mobs that have strong compatibility with nation.

......Windurst >>>> Yagudo >>> Wind Crystal
......San O'ria >>> Orcs >>>>> Fire Crystal
......Bastok >>>>>> Quadav >>> Water Crystal

Or something like that.

If you didn't notice that's what the original poster did (quadav in S. Gustaberg, in the Gustaberg region which is usually Bastok-dominant) based on an old method of changing armor that you described.

At any rate, according to the March 2008 update details, "fellows' equipment requirements have been changed," which seems to be related to the OP's problem as the new conditions haven't been figured out.

A "talk" article on ffxiclopedia includes some brief accounts of people's failed attempts to change armor by killing beastmen mobs with in starter areas, also.

I had no idea they made a change on the equipment requirement on march update. Guess that could explain the problem. Right now I been trying to get 8000 fellow points and see if I can upgrade like that. This gonna take forever if I keep doing like that. I will try to kill max mobs (easy prey) with bastok dominant and see if it change anything. I will to wait next week cause most of the region are sandy and windy.

Have anyone know the new way to change our fellow equipment?

Nope, must be something else. I called my NPC 5 times in a row in Fei'Yin fighting Specters and Underworld Bats and she only changed gear one time. She dinged level 68 on an underworld bat and was getting xp the entire time.

Incidentally I didn't think she was getting any xp on these bats because I always thought the chart on the wiki meant they can't get experience points under a level difference of zero. But after asking the linkshell it makes sense that at level 67 the bats would have been EP-- making her about 15xp ea.

Actually i did & like i say, nation must be higer (Mayor) >>> Dominant in region, not to be in control.

I still not sure what are the new reuqeriments, but if you kill monsters in a place where your nation have high influence you can get an upgrade armor.

Example: few days ago i was killing Quadavs & Goblins in Rolanberry Fields Controled by Bastok, But Mayor-Dominant influence by Sandy & i Fellow armor go from bastok lv 6 to Sandy lv 1.

To Reaven: Yes South gustaberg are bastok dominant in the region everytime I call my npc.

To LuckerHex: I will try your methord later when my signal are ready. I doubt it change anything cause its is in same region and also Quadav supposed to give better "Element" than worm and spider. I post again when I try 2-3 times before I get to conclusion it work.

There is something wrong now. I went to Bibiki Bay which which are bastok control the region. I been killing those bird. My leg haven't change at all. I call my NPC 2 times and done max kill on both. I never had this kind of problem before I start to upgrade the 60k thing to lock the 4th equipment.

I'm the only who got this kind of problem?

After some test i found (maybe im wrong)

1. you need to get some exp to get the change.
2. you need more than just full kills to get changes. im getting 1 change every 45+ kills on T+ mobs.

Again, im not sure! this is what I have experienced.
