Named after the currency players accumulate and exchange with Sanraku in order to face these foes. The system is an integral part of upgrading Mythic Weapons.

Gaining Zeni

Zeni NM System by Spira
(Wild Dragon Chase)

Zeni is used purchase the pop items to fight ZNMs. Obtaining Zeni requires Feral Drain which requires Jettons. Jettons may be earn by trading an Imperial Currency to Zandjarl or participating Pankration.

  • See the Pankration page for more details on using Feral Drain.

Trading in images of specific monsters to Sanraku (Aht Urhgan Whitegate at E-8) will reward Zeni. Sanruku will only accept 10 used soulplates per Vana'diel day.

The amount of Zeni rewarded for a image is dependent on several modifiers. Sanruku will be looking for a specific type of monster type ("Recommended Fauna") and in addition a specific high level NM ("Subject of Interest"). Either will reward a more reasonable amount of Zeni. Sanruku's desired images will change over time.

  • Additionally, higher level foes have a positive effect on the amount Zeni rewards.

Having a monster claimed and with low health will increase the success rate of the Feral Drain and increase Zeni given.

  • To maximize Zeni gained, it is important to lower the mobs health significantly (1-2%), and take the photo from the front at a close range (~3 yalms).

You may check Sanraku's taste by speaking to Ryo, located next to Sanruku. You may also check the amount of Zeni that would be given for an image by trading it to Ryo.

  • Nauls (The mini wyrms in Abyssea - Tahrongi at (E-9)) give up to 1560 zeni regardless of Sanraku's subject of interest.

The maximum amount of zeni that may be held at a time is 1 million.

Using Zeni

Zeni are used to purchase pop items, often these pop items require specific key items in order to purchase.
The prices fluctuate depending on demand: buying a pop item, makes it more expensive whereas passing game days where none of that type are purchased reduces the price.

To purchase any Tier II pop item, a Tier I monster in the given path needs to be defeated and that trophy item needs to be turned in to obtain the key item. This repeats for the higher tiers, Tier IV and Tier V need 3 key items to purchase the pop item.

The Zeni Notorious Monster Farming Guide is a great resource for the most efficient way to solo the entire ZNM system.
