Astral Candescence

From BG FFXI Wiki
(Redirected from Mamook Incursion)
Jump to: navigation, search

The cause of great strife among the populace in Aht Urhgan, the Astral Candescence is the item over which the beastmen and children of Altana fight. It is stored within the Hall of Binding in Al Zahbi. The fabled "Astal Wind" grants bonuses to whichever nation possesses it. If the Candescence is lost, it must be reclaimed through a BCNM fight against the beastmen force who captured it.

Notable among the bonuses offered are the Sanction Experience Points bonus and the optional Regen/Refresh/Food Duration bonuses. These bonuses vary in strength depending on the Imperial Defense Bonus, which increases the longer that the Astral Candescence has been kept in Al Zahbi.
