I remember reading you can work on two trials simultaneously using DW. But there was something weird about it with the day/weather trials (maybe bugged?). I dont really remember the specifics on how it worked, though i think you couldnt do the same trial (ie 2x Dex kila's on the same stage at the same time).

Anyway, what can you and cant you do with DW magians? Thinking about doing one for a while but putting it off. If i could double up i might go for it. Just want to see what the most efficient way to go about it is, even if I have to plan out a mob path specifically to overlap when possible.

Some trials are compatible with others, like the ones requiring any monster + some specific weather.

The bug in question makes it so that if the mob types are compatible, you may get credit for both weapons even if the current weather only applies to one of them. I could be wrong but I think that only applies to weather, not days, and from superfamilies to specific families (or the other way around, I forget).

In any event, you might be able to save yourself 1 or 2 trials per dagger, thats it.

If you have two trials that require the same mob, but one of them is day and one of them is weather, if you are fighting them on the day, you will get credit for both.

Example. Trial 18/30 in conjunction with Trial 16. Trial 19 in conjunction with Trial 17. Can make it a lot easier to knock out those earlier trials if you are doing Kilas.

Is it possible to do two simultaniously of the same trial? (ie just DW thunder dakinis from start to finish?)

The wiki seems to imply you only need to fulfull one weapon requirement and you get both:
Quote:
You may Dual Wield two trial weapons and receive credit for each as long as each weapon's specific trial criteria are met.

* There is currently a glitch for one-handed weapon trials. When Dual Wielding, you may receive credit for both weapons when only the conditions for one are met.


If this is the case then i should be able to say, start a thunder and fire trial (after they split paths if i cant do 2x the same trial) and then just follow 1 or the other and complete both literally at the same time right? Or even just have say, 2x thunder trials, but have them staggered 1 behind the other (again if you cant do simultanious same trials)?

Thinking about trying to do fire+thunder. Cant imagine needing two of either really once I finish my OAT dagger. And have a completed fusetto to boot. 3 mainhand daggers(Fire/Thunder/STP)+OAT Para+TK should cover me >_> Really dont want to deal with some 4-6 (if go for eva) dakinis....to much inv ><

No, if you already have a trial started, you can't start the same trial with the moogle.
