The Wiki [wiki]Category:BCNM[/wiki] page should get you started. Basically you trade seals to [wiki]Shami[/wiki] and then go to the appropriate zone with the proper number of people, trade the orb to the burning circle and kill the mobs inside.

Soloing most BCNM's will get you killed, however.

Read up on BCNM's, find a few good partners, take a few runs- and save every seal you can get. Only 28 seals in 30 levels? Wow.

Aka, the 50 seal crap shoot.

Getting a mimic solo pretty much guarantees death, barring a miracle Warp clear...and it's 1-in-3 chances you pop the chest and not a mimic.

So it's blowing 50 seals for a 66% chance of croaking. Maybe as an RDM since I can Chainspell-Warp clear, but as a BLM? Splat!

Yeah, it starts as a treasure chest, then morphs into the mimic, so its not a mimic from the start so the DAT file change wont' matter until he's already out. :(

I really think that if it was possible to tell the difference between them before the pop...this would be the bcnm everyone attended solo.

Ya, drop rates on good items are terrible at best, but if in 150 seals u solo a 1-3M drop...it's well worth it and no one would attempt any of the others instead opting for this and saving gil to purchase anything good the others would drop.

I really don't think SE would allow us that much help.../cry 2/6 on the "right" chest and a total of 10k in drops yea but better than goin all the way to Palborough or Ghelsba with a party, fight using 40k in gear bought just for BC, and another 30k in items/food only to get 10k off those drops as well.
Same mob, different day.

Nope, just tried it, used the camera to look inside each one, nothing was different.

Don't you mean Bomb?
