Hello fellow ninjas.

I'm noticing something odd, and would like to know if I'm the first one it's happening to..

Here's the situation:
I recently made 2 Kuinas and got the 100 lizards during any weather dealt with in Pso'Xja.

I just recently got my first Kuina upgraded down the lightning path, and thus, killed 100 fungars in light/fire/thunder/wind weather.

Now, I got my 2nd kuina on trial 593 (the funguars), in my off-hand.

In my main-hand, trial 606, any monster, under thunderday/thunderweather.

Each kill I get in Grauberg got me 1 point for both kuinas so far.

At first watersday, wind weather. Kill 1 fungar? Both katana register.
Later, wind weather goes off. Kill 1 funguar? no effect.
Later, on windsday, wind weather, Kill 1 fungar? Both katana register.

I'm not one to complain about faster progression, but I expected my Trial 606 katana to fall behind the other one (because it's less often thunder than wind over here, but at least some kills would have been double). Right now, however, all kills are double.

Am I seeing things? o_O;;

It's a glitch, yeah. People on trial daggers have been taking advantage of this, too.

What are the details of the glitch?

I'm under thunderweather, and still getting only 1 point per kill, so my assumption is that as long as you fulfill one of the katana's condition, you get a point for both weapons?

If that's true, you could "skip" the hard part of weapons later by repeating the lowbie katanas and dual-wielding them in grauberg forever?

Some trials "combine" improperly, and some of them don't. If there's any sort of hard rule as to what determines whether or not two trials can be illegitimately combined together, I'm not aware of it yet. :/ Would love to figure it out though!

I can say that in all cases I know of of this glitch occurring, one of the weapons involved had a "any mobs + specific day/weather" trial active. There might be other cases where this will work.

At one point I was dual wielding Trial 11 (300 hippogryphs) and Trial 24 (100 mobs + wind day/weather). When I was killing hippogryphs in Grauberg, I was getting credit on both daggers, regardless of the day/weather.


It's also worth noting that as long as you don't fully complete a trial, you can trade the weapon back to the moogle and get it reset, to start the trial all over again.

Yeah, I've only seen it happening with a '100 monsters' trial on one of the katanas. After the update I can test with a different combination.

I really hope people keep this pretty quiet, it makes some of the really obnoxious trials a lot easier. Either that or they change the final mob for the fire path to something other than apkallu. Expecting people to kill 200 of a mob that reduces your damage to nothing after 10~15 is stupid. Hope PUP gets some attention too - 150 pet kills of soulflayers WTF

I take it there's no way to get apkallu to spawn in Maze Mongers?

If there isn't, there should be. >_>

As far as I'm aware no, I think the bird rune is bats, normal birds, colibri, rocs and hippogryphs as options.
