My take is that it's some special Coil token that can be used to upgrade the "weathered" 100 gear to 110, thus being on par with coil drop and counter the RNG while still giving us a reason to run coil.
I didin't think about that , but that'd be really smart actually. It's either you get lucky and get a piece from coil this week and even if you don't , atleast you'll be able to upgrade your i100 piece.
Or the token is a drop and you have to figure out who in the group gets it.
Time to dust off those DKP spreadsheets.
There's an Allagan Oil listed, this was my thought after seeing that oil.
If so I hope they can also drop from contents of similar difficulty like extreme modes so these gear will not be limited to people who have a stable party early on, but skilled players who are yet to find a party.
Had the same thoughts too. Would be pretty smart and basically solve all problems : you cant get to 110 without running coil, yet you would still have 2 options on max gear to customize slightly, and you would have the tome items allowing to cover for the hole in your armor you had bad luck with like you did with mytho. I like it.
We might be using this to buy the i110 Gerolt set (maybe). If you look at the new items , there are 3 new ilevel 100-110 sets added for each Role/class , High allagan i110 , "Weathered" Noct i100(for tanks) and Noct i110 (for tanks)
This might explain why we've seen the gerolt gear in 2 different colors as well.
Could be what philo turns into, to trade for myth, since it may not be on character sheet any longer.
