Officially called Orb Battles, Burning Circle Notorious Monster (BCNM) events are a special type of arena battle in where adventurers fight a specific mob or group of mobs. They are great ways to have fun and earn powerful items in the world of Vana'diel. These events are accessed by trading a specific orb to the entrance of a Burning Circle. These orbs can be obtained by trading Beastmen's Seals, Kindred's Seals, or Kindred's Crests to Shami (in Port Jeuno).
- Only one person needs an orb to enter the battle.
- In the event of a K.O., all TP accumulated is reset to zero within a BCNM.
- Additionally, in the event of a party wipe, the party has 3 minutes to reraise or all members get kicked out.
