Category:Voidwalker NM System
You can procure clear abyssite from Assai Nybaem for 1,000 gil.
When you have an abyssite key item, resting will check to see if there are any appropriate NMs in the zone by giving a message that it is vibrating and emitting light.
Each tier of Voidwalker has a different message for the resonation:
There are two unused messages: "very strongly" and "furiously" in the dat files that may be used for future tiers of VNMs.
The tier 3 and 4 NMs seem to have two different versions that can spawn, "Shadow" and "True". They are differentiated by the "Shadow" versions lacking a shadow. The "True" versions grant a title and drop rings, whereas the "Shadow" versions do not. There have been reports of Tier 3 and 4 mobs gaining or losing shadows over the course of battles, but the mechanic of this change is currently unknown.
The system works as such: You purchase a Clear abyssite Assai Nybaem, then rest in any zone with mobs in order to hunt down and pop a Voidwalker "Small Fry" or Tier 1 monster. After defeating the Small Fry, there is a chance that the Clear abyssite will upgrade into a Colorful abyssite. You rest in order to hunt down and pop a Voidwalker "NM" or tier 2 monster. After defeating the NM, there is a chance that the Colorful abyssite will upgrade into a specific abyssite to that cluster of zones. (Bastok area: Orange, San d'Oria area: Blue, Windurst area: Brown, Jeuno area: Yellow, Northlands area: Purple.) The specific abyssites will only pop the True or Shadow HNMs in the cluster of zones that it is from. From this point on, the abyssites will break when the Voidwalker spawns, so take care when trying to pop them. All of the Voidwalker HNMs spawned with the specific abyssites will have a chance of dropping a Black abyssite regardless of shadow status. The Voidwalker SHNM can be popped in any zone.
