Thanks for waiting out for most of the T1-2 drops, everyone. We can finally shift our focus on seal farming and T3 spamming.

:arrow: Pop Plan
Since traveling and preparation takes up a large portion of our time, we will only follow a strict line of pops to reach T3 for the sake of time efficiency. This is why our first few ZNM runs have been focusing on T1 and T2 mobs for drops, rather than seals. Please do not deviate from the prescribed arrangement--I won't address your pop on Monday night; you will have to schedule a separate day as an LS event to use that trigger.

Mamool Ja Path
Troll Path
Lamia Path

:arrow: The Schedule
In order to promote the gathering of T4 triggers (which involves killing all three T3 mobs of one path) and equipment in a timely fashion, there will be one T3 "mob of choice" per path for our T3 week. Rather than running around and addressing different ZNM, this lets us sit in one place and spam pops. All nine of the T3 ZNM have been assembled in a group of three and are rotated every three weeks; they have been organized in such a manner that none of them have overlapping drops (grips not included). Here's the schedule:



    Tier III: Mahjlaef the Paintorn, Khromasoul Bhurborlor, Gotoh Zha the Redolent
    Tier IV: Tyger, Sarameya, Tinnin - Currently, this is in an undecided order; with multiple pops, it's highly unlikely we can kill more than one set of T4 ZNM within a reasonable time frame, so we will do one T4 per week (e.g., Hydra only on the 12th, Sarameya on the 19th, Tyger on the 26th) before resuming T1 spamming the next available Monday. Be aware that T3 can be just as time-consuming as T4, so this may get pushed back.

You are not required to buy any pops, and you are only limited to 3 pops (one per path) at most every week; even if you provide 0 pops, T3 items will start to rot and you'll get what you commented sooner or later. However, for those who intend to bring pops each week, be aware that this can be taxing; you'll have to farm up 3k's worth of Zeni for T1, 6k for T2, and 9k for T3, for a grand total of 18k Zeni over a 3-week period. If you do not provide a pop, we can't stop and go back (e.g., if you've popped Chigre but didn't buy a Verdelet pop, you have to wait until T2 rolls around again). If you spread it out throughout the week while earning extra Zeni during our T1 and T2 phase, it's not entirely difficult to accumulate this much.

Due to Sanraku's varying interests and conflicting schedules, there will be no scheduled day for Zeni farming; it's completely your responsibility to farm your own triggers. You are encouraged to ask the LS in-game about setting up impromptu farming parties to meet your self-imposed Zeni count.
