Add a Reraise Scroll to buyable Temporary Items, seriously why did you not do this to begin with?

Add an easier way to warp to the different zones @_@

I'm grateful about Horst but when I warp to Vunkerl Bastion to have it end and have to use a Warp Cudgel to buy a Silver Piece to go back to Port Jeuno it gets annoying :/

I haven't gotten the chance to try Bastion yet, but no Reraise scroll sounds pretty lame. I'm assuming it has most of the other standard Campaign items to buy? Only reason I can think of is so they can add it later and have us go "finally, great update!"

With the addition of Horst, I've just set my HP in Port Jeuno now. If I need to use an Outpost, I'll just La Theine Maw -> FoV Manual's Repatriation 5 ft. away -> Bastok OP.

I still like to go to WG to join an Abyssea PT once in a while so I'm not quite ready to change my HP to PJ yet.

Do lure of the wildcat (Jeuno) and you can get to whitegate for only 300 gil to npc in upper jeuno near exit to batilla. But I agree, reraise scrolls and a way to warp back to Horst would be wonderful.

You can buy additional temporary items from the Bastion Prefect, and sadly a Reraise Scroll is not one of them.
All are bought with Resistance Credits.

Lucid Potion III
Lucid Ether III
Lucid Wings I
Dusty Wing
Lucid Elixer II
Fool's Drink
Fanatic's Drink
Monarch's Drink

That is to just name a few, all of these go under Temporary Item so if you don't use them in a Bastion battle you can still use them in any other Abyssea area.
The main problem with a Bastion battle at the moment is there is a LOT of AoE attacks flying around which kill people very fast. In an average run you're looking at 2-3 Gears, 2 Chariots, 2 Dolls and 2 Acrolith as well as the Spheroids.
The AoE damage really builds up and not having Reraise to hand (Earring would solve this i know, but still) is a bit of a downer especially because if you go down at the start of a battle you do not get any EXP until you are revived, which is unlikely until the battle is over and even then it's too late.

Upper Jeuno then. Can warp to WG from the npc very near, or zone into Batallia Downs and use the FoV manual a few feet away to warp to your home nation.

1 minute per 1 resistance credit.

Bastion + Resistance Ops (50 credits per most runs) would allow for much lengthier stays in Abyssea, or do you think that would be borderline "broken" since people could have infinite time in Abyssea without having to get extensions from blue pyxides?

I'm currently sitting on over 2000 of them and I only need one piece of AF3, so a few more degrees of freedom to spend them would be very helpful.

Asking for TE's right now is kinda pointless, how does anyone know if there aren't already TE's and we just havent figured out how to activate them yet? Even'ts not even a week old, lets wait to see what all we haven't figured out yet before we start asking for SE to change it.

Now, in a month, if there really is no TE"s for people participating in bastion, let the requests fly, I'll lead the charge, but I think it's just silly to ask for it, when we don't even know if it's already in game.

tbh, there was so much spam last time I did bastion...didnt' notice if any lights registered or not. Maybe we can eventually get lights built so chests drop--b ut you have to STAY in there to do that.

A few ideas I've seen popping up in different places:

A means to grant time extensions on kills. It could be purchased with credits, a chest drop that applies to all with bastion status when it's opened, or maybe a random 1-5 minutes per kill to everyone with bastion status.

A means to warp to homepoint or nearest outpost for the maw. This could be an item bought from the NPC (warp scroll, or something like the outpost rings with 5 charges or something), or even an option directly from the NPC, like the FoV Repatriation.

Stop taking our EARNED time away when we leave abyssea areas--or at the very least, raise the limit. Still let us only trade stones up to 120 minutes, but let us keep the time we build up while in abyssea. I frequently loose an hour or more time when I leave. When in the new zones, I coul just go to 00 and burn my time down to 120 (if I can stay awake that long, which I have yet to do)--but when in the first 3 zones, it's a complete wipe of as much as 3 hours of earned time.

I wouldn't be against some generic 1 Abyssite = +X maximum time. It'd give incentive to try and collect even the lesser important ones as if, say at 5m+ per, just buying the 8 cruor abyssites could add 40m to your timer. It'd also increase the value of Sojourn stones, as while I think 39m is the current "max" per stone, often I find myself wasting 15m or more if I decide to add more time to my remaining amount.

****, the whole time limitation on these expansions still irk me. One could argue SE cut NM respawns dramatically because of this, but then you look to Empyrean weapons and such where you have to get a group to dedicate themselves just to you for the sake of personal advancement. I'd almost welcome needing like 200 NM drops or something if it meant we could dwell in Abyssea as long as we wanted under current conditions. If they still want to keep some time sensitive element, then apply it to buffs we can receive from NPCs and Atma.

Also, please add a xp round when battle ends. Sometimes there isnt even time to kill any mobs so no xp. Or you fight the bigger mobs for last for a long time and dont get credit for it.

Dang, you might as well remove the time limit from Abyssea entirely at that price. I wouldn't even need to do Bastion at all in order to remain in a Scars zone indefinitely; I could get more than enough from doing a resistance op, and any more I get from other quests would just be a bonus.

It's 42 actually! Four sojourn abyssites:

One bought from Visions cruor prospector
One dropped from Ovni in LTP

One quested in Misareaux
One dropped in Mielikki in Attohwa

Yeah, I blanked on Ovni. I need to build my LT fame, but just can't **** myself to empty my inventory to hold 50 fishing poles and run around for an hour.

Eh, it's not that bad. You don't even need 50 fishing poles. About 30-35 suffices; the rest you can get by completing other quests. If all you want to do is JUST that one quest though, then yeah, you'll need about 50.

Konschtat fame, though? Way more of a drag.
