Zeni Notorious Monsters
Zeni is used purchase the pop items to fight ZNMs. Zeni is obtained from Ryo in Aht Urhgan Whitegate at (E-8). He will provide Zeni in exchange for Gil at a rate of 1 Zeni for every 10 Gil.
Zeni is used to purchase pop items, often these pop items require specific key items in order to purchase. The amount of Zeni that a pop item costs varies with the tier of ZNM (higher tiers cost more Zeni).
- Teir 1 - 1000 Zeni
- Teir 2 - 2000 Zeni
- Teir 3 - 3000 Zeni
- Teir 4 - 4000 Zeni
- Teir 5 - 5000 Zeni
To purchase any Tier II pop item, a Tier I monster in the given path needs to be defeat 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. Use the flow chart below to find out which key item is needed to purchase the next tier's pop item.
After defeating a ZNM, a "trophy" item bearing the defeated ZNM's name is dropped. It can be taken back to Sanraku, who will give you a colored seal key item in return. The seals allow the bearer one chance at purchasing a higher tier item (Zeni is still required for purchase). These are temporary key items and once you purchase a pop item from Sanraku for a higher tier ZNM, the lower tier seal is lost. For example: If you kill Cheese Hoarder Gigiroon in Tier 1 you will get a Maroon Seal upon turning in Gigiroon's Cape; now you want to kill Iriz Ima in Tier 2. As soon as you purchase the pop item for Iriz Ima your Maroon Seal will be lost. In order to purchase another, you must turn in another trophy item that bestows a Maroon Seal.
