Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Loot (Final Fantasy XII)". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.


If you're going to do such an ambitious project, make sure you have the time. Don't refer to monsters vaguely, like "Wolf found at location A" for example. Also, make sure you have the correct monster. And finally, don't just stop a list with "zzz", it looks very unprofessional, just put the word "incomplete" in the section title.

Or better yet, use the Incomplete Table template.

Yes boss, right away boss! Oh, wait... You are not the boss of me, are you? Start being more polite and I might pay attention to your complaints, as of now, all rude grumblings will be just ignored.
Renmiri 22:14, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't see how that's a complaint, but considering the schedule you're on, I see what you mean.
--Auron Kaizer 22:42, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't see how it is a complaint either... He was noting how you could improve and what you should consider when writing. All he really said was 1) Make sure you have the necessary time, if you're doing a major project (else, start out small in your sandbox); 2) Be specific ("bunny-like fiend" at blah isn't specific); 3) Make other users aware of that the lists aren't complete (having to read the entire list before realizing, is not "making users aware"). That's just how things are done around here, in an effort to make this a great place for FF info. And if you really want to (quote) "make FF Wiki the best it can be", you should take these pieces of advice to heart, instead of dismissing them and being sardonic towards those who give them to you.
--Hecko X 00:01, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Hecko, pretty much put it in a friendlier way than I did.
Diablocon 13:57, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Precisely: friendly. Didn't your elders ever teach you that If you want to get respect you should start by giving that respect to others?
Renmiri 15:49, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
People who live in glass houses...
--Hecko X 16:10, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Respect? When was this about respect? I was just giving you some advice. Granted, my tone wasn't as friendly as it should have been, but this has nothing to do with respect.

Need my help?Edit

I have the book. I could take time out to edit and stuff to add more if you want, kind madame. As for the item's descriptions themselves? That's gonna be a tad harder to fill in. I'll be glad to help you if you want, just leave me a message.

--Chris 23:48, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't have the book, but I recently started playing FFXII, so I could help filling in the blanks on some of the earlier loot items one acquires in the game.
--Nekobawt -- 19:44, 1 November 2007 (UTC)==Don't edit right now! Please!==

Getting the info on the loot isn't hard, just use the book for them. However, for the descriptions, that's going to be the pain. Do you plan on posting the information about what is said for each Loot as well?

amazing Edit


Chop Table down? Edit

I think that Loot table is too large because you can't tell which column is for what without going all the way back up to the header row. Shall I cut it to 26 tables, each table corresponding to a letter of the alphabet, (like this)? Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 21:52, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Einherjarium as steal rather than poach Edit

I don't want to step on anyone's toes, so I'm sending a message instead of editting the chart. (It is also because I'm not sure I'm correct on this.) When I tried to poach Babil I was getting an immune message. Should the Babil be listed under the steal column for Einherjarium? - marshallr0ss

Zodiac Gems Edit

Dudes, I looked in the Aries Gem Section and did not find Steal: Belias. Aries Gem can be stolen from Belias like the Pisces Gem from Mateus and Capricorn From Adrammelech. Here's The List, if I remember correctly. Aries- Belias, Pisces - Mateus, Capricorn - Adrammelech, Taurus - Chaos, Virgo - Ultima, Scorpio - Cuchulainn, Libra - Exodus, Serpentarius - Zodiark, Aquarius - Famfrit ( Farm Ifrit), Gemini - Zalera, Leo - Hashmal, Cancer - Zeromus. ( Not in order of when fough, ask Mr. Zodiark here.

You are right these are missing. :) Better add them.Keltainentoukokuu 18:08, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

Items Descriptions Project Edit

I would like to start a project starting now, to fill in loot descriptions for this page.

If there is anyone who has the game and has made quite some progress with it, please help out if you can.

Mask no Oni 22:43, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

I'd advise to use rowspan="2" at item's name and colspan="5" as the new row for the descriptions as in-game descriptions are pretty lengthy. Also remember to put descriptions in italics.—Kaimi >♂ FFXIII - Sprite-AtkVanille - FFXIII - Sprite-ShockVanille - FFXIII - Sprite-LookVanille - FFXIII - Sprite-CrysVanille 22:51, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Arcana Edit

Is there a reason it isn't in here? It's kinda weird since it appears so often, but it should probably be included. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:41, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

I don't know, but it should be. If I had the game with me I'd check and enter the stats myself... could somebody else do that? C A T U S E 19:57, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Can't find a list of enemies that drop it without Canopic Jar just with the Monograph but otherwise info added. Guess we'd have it if one wants to look through all 70 rare game...Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 00:30, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

Monograph Drops Edit

The table is lacking in Monograph drops. For convenience, a while ago I copied the tables into a document on my netbook so I could keep track of what I was trying to obtain, and I was getting a lot of Monograph Loot that wasn't listed under the enemy I got it from on the article. I've been adding the loot in dribs and drabs as I've obtained them, but is there any reason why we don't seem to cover Monograph drops as extensively? Maybe we should have another column for them.

Poking this again. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:31, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

The page is already lenghty and I'm not sure if giving yet another column may look well, even in Monobook. Maybe we could make subpages for the loot; I think five will be enough as from what I counted there are twenty-five letters and for each subpages, five letters could go. On this page we could just give loot's name (which would link to loot's area in the subpage of the article), and best ways to obtain those items, while on the subpages we could give detailed information. There's also a possibility of making it look like this:
Name Price How to obtain Bazaar
Adamantite 1479 Steal: Thalassinon
Poach: Adamantitan
Reward: Darksteel Hunt
The strongest material known to exist in nature. Mention of this metal in the oldest records of Ivalice attests to its long-established uses.
Yet, this design may prove also lenghty when the same item can be dropped by quite a lot of enemies, or being a fairly common drop regarding the number of from how many enemies can drop it. This page is overlong in my opinion even though it contains all important information.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 19:21, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

I just found a tiny mistake. Charger Barding can NOT be dropped, stolen or poached from Mesmenir (Ozmone). I don't know how to edit it myself, or even if I could/should edit it myself. Just saying.

Mesmenir doesn't mention it, either, so seems a mistake. Anyone can edit and it's not a big deal if it didn't go right the first time. But if you don't want to, then posting to talk page is always appreciated, thanks!Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:30, August 8, 2017 (UTC)

Bundle of NeedlesEdit

Bundle of Needles - it is not mentioned that you also get one Bundle of Needles from Danto's wife during the Patient side quest (after giving her the cactus flower).

Thanks, added.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 03:31, January 3, 2018 (UTC)

Zodiac Age ChangesEdit

It's strange that the page hasn't been updated for The Zodiac Age, with gear like Escutcheon still present. Better late than never, I suppose. Gsurfer04 (talk) 22:09, February 9, 2018 (UTC)

The wiki is supposed to cover both versions because it's not like the original stopped existing, so it's quite big job to do. This should probably be in a subpage with /Original like with equipment lists, and then make a new one for Zodiac Age.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 22:14, February 9, 2018 (UTC) EDIT: Actually maybe the changes could just be noted in the same table if there are not too many of them. I don't remember there being new loot added, just the bazaar stuff is different. Enemy drops are also different sometimes though, not sure how to best present that with both versions.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 22:17, February 9, 2018 (UTC)

I think I found another tiny mistake. Under "Malboro Flower" it says that it can be stolen form the regular "Malboro" enemy, which I think is untrue. The Malboro site doen't mention it either.

This site claims that you need only 2 Spiral Incisor for the Black Belts. But I'm certain you need 3. The Bazar Site says so and it was like that in vanilla too.

You can't steal Wyvern Fangs from Aeros, only Wyvern Wings (needed for Arcturus gun). I hope it's okay if I keep on doing these little posts. I said it before, I'm not nitpicking or criticizing, just trying to help.

If you want to make corrections, just do it. No need to make a big song and dance. Just explain what you're doing in the edit summary. Gsurfer04 (talk) 15:18, September 11, 2018 (UTC)
