Introduction[edit | edit source]

The Ferryman is a mysterious man, woman, or thing, that we've never actually seen, but all know exists. He is the one who ferries us to our dungeons, and accepts payment in the form of Silver, Crimson, and Platinum Tokens. It seems, however, his has some very strange rules about when he will take your tokens, and when he will not. This small guide will explain when and where he will take your tokens.

How Boat Trips Work[edit | edit source]

The Basics of the Boat[edit | edit source]

In order to reach the battlefield, you must take a ride with the Ferrymen who will sail you to your location. In the beginning, for all trips for levels 9 and down, the Ferrymen will sail you to your location free of charge. Once you reach the Hoarfrost Hollow and beyond, however, he will demand a certain amount of payment in Silver, Crimson, or Platinum Tokens.

For the first 7 trips, he will charge you 2 Silver tokens per ride. The next 6 trips will cost 3 silver tokens each. And finally, every trip afterward will cost you 4 Silver Tokens each. If you happen to have them available, you can use Crimson Tokens and Platinum tokens, which will always amount to 1 token per ride. Another nifty tidbit about these two tokens is that they will not increase the counter for boat trips you've taken for the day. This also applies to any free rides. If neither you, nor a party member, paid for your trip with Silver Tokens, the counter will remain where it is.

You may also wonder what the difference is between Crimson Tokens and Platinum Tokens, if only 1 of either is required to ride a boat. Crimson Tokens cost less NX than Platinum Tokens, and are able to be traded on the Marketplace. Platinum Tokens, cost more and cannot be traded on the Marketplace, but they give a 50% boost to Combat Experience, and 10 LUK for the trip.

How the Token Deduction System Actually Works[edit | edit source]

If you pay attention to your token count, you'll notice that, even though you paid however many tokens for a battle, it does not change once you begin the level. The reason for this is the Ferryman will only take your tokens once you've completed an important objective in the battle. This is often just the act of defeating a boss. To be more specific, however, this only applies if you defeat a boss within a set of objective bosses.

A simple example of this can be illustrated in a single-boss mission like Brynn's Research. The objective boss set only includes a single boss: Robust Echeloch. If you defeat him, your battle is over, and the Ferryman will take the tokens you paid with on the boat. Another interesting note is that within Brynn's Research, you will sometimes encounter another boss: Eflame. If you take notice, however, you'll see that even by defeating him, you will not lose tokens. This is because he is not a boss within the set of objective bosses.

A more complicated example would be Another Slingshot. In this mission, there are 3 bosses total: Eflame, Jolly Ebeloch, and Brother Ebeloch. Of these 3, 2 of them are part of the objective boss set. If you kill either Jolly Ebeloch or Brother Ebeloch, your tokens will be deducted. So as a result, it can be detrimental if you happen to defeat Jolly Ebeloch, and your whole party dies to Brother Ebeloch, or you happen to disconnect after defeating Jolly Ebeloch. This means you lost your tokens, your boat trip counter increases by 1, and you gain no AP for the mission.
