Trickster: Drilling

Post by Infidel » Mon 09.11.2006 12:54 am

Ok,

About every 5th time I drill, there is a ringing sound and a text box appears above my head. Unfortunatly, a lightbulb also appears above my head and covers part of the text box.

I make out, アニモネ:この(lightbulb) and then the text box fades.

アニモネ is obviously my character's name.

Anyone know what this message says in entirety, or if it changes, could you give an example? I assume it is a good thing because I always get an item when I drill after the light bulb. In fact, my TM XP is going up faster than my regular XP, I don't know if that is normal or not.

When I get home today, I'm going to try to translate all these item's I drilled :)

The Japanese server is much different than the English one.

There are people in tents everywhere on the Japanese server, where there are no tents at all on the English server. Also, the newbie zones have money lying everywhere as people just run around killing and not picking up the gold. I made 2000 gold just by running around and picking up stuff off the ground. Nothing was left lying on the ground of the English servers.
なるほど。

It's something like

このあたりにアイテムがあるんです。

but that's from memory.

sweet, Thanks Paul :)

I thought I saw"アイテム but the text box fading part made it rather difficult to be sure.

Appears to be この下にアイテムがあるんだ in my screen shot.

All I know is that it means that your character senses that there is something where you are drilling.

Is there something special about that item for it to have a caption?

No, I've dug up all sorts of junk after getting that message. It just means you'll dig up something there (if not interrupted, which can happen if you're in a zone with aggressive monsters), not that it's something you're on quest for or anything.

Incidentally there's a skill for 感覚型 characters to stop being interrupted by monsters. Unfortunately you're still _hit_, you just don't stop drilling. :D

Two messages, one saying there is an item there, and one saying there isnt and item.
If you get it every five drills you must be a sense type, or another with a 4 in sense.
If you cant read it just look at you charecter, if you don't start drilling and you go back to the blue arrow an item was not bellow you.

EDIT: non-sense charecters get the messages also, they are just harder to get do to having a lower Detect Ability.
