There are rotating, daily events that encourage players to participate in certain content and activities on certain days.
|Day of Week||Bonus|
|Monday||Legion Day - 2x Legion Points in the Halls of Legion|
|Tuesday||Abyssea Day - 2x Cruor Points in Abyssea Zones|

|Saturday||Synergy Crafting Day - +5% base success chance while synergy crafting|
The daily BCNMs provide a fun challenge for players of all levels. These fights can be taken on solo or up to a group of three and provide rare/ex items matching the level of the encounter (including a small chance at some super rare items) as well as the chance at gear progression currency, such as alexandrite.
The fights take place at Gheshba Outpost’s “Hut Door”. To access each fight, trade the item listed below to the Hut Door to gain entry and select the
. (the period, second option) when the entry dialog pops up.
There are 5 BCNMs:
|Level Range||Target||Trade Item|
|10-35||Vorpal Bunny||San d’Orian Carrot|
|50-75||Rock Chomper||Translucent Rock|
|70-95||Chairot of Volare||Chariot Band|
|90-99||Forgotten Overseer||Void Crystal|
The key items can be found throughout the world as drops, from shops, or from prior tier BCNMs.
Players over the maximum level of the BCNM will be level sync’d down to the max level and their stats scaled accordingly. Equipped gear will be automatically reduced to match (rather than unequipped) the restriction.
The item isn’t consumed on trade, so you’ll only ever need one of each item as ‘keys’ to the BCNM. You can store them in your Mog Satchel and them move them into your inventory to trade to the Hut Door.
On successful completion of the BCNM, you’ll gain experience points, gil, and potentially a personal treasure pool of gear progression currency. Experience points and gil are scaled to your job level.
In addition, each encounter has a unique loot table with some rare and fun items found in the level range of the encounter, such as Ridill, Hachirin-no-obi, Bounding Boots, and Soboro Shkehiro. The loot tables will be changing monthly to spice things up.
!hunts command provides access to the Nocturnal Souls daily hunts system.
Each target requires killing 20 of that family of monster. Targets must be no less than 6 levels lower than your level to count towards the hunt. On completion, you’ll be rewarded with experience points, gil, and unique currency, such as Alexandrite, Tanzanite Jewels, and others used for gear progression.
|Wednesday||Arcana and Golems|
Experience points and gil are scaled to your job level.
The family types in FFXI are… not an exact science, so the net is thrown a bit wide which should help find ample numbers of hunt targets. These lists also tend to include NMs and HNMs who fall under the same family type. For example, Byakko counts as a ‘beast’ and Yumcax as a ‘plant’.
