Final Fantasy XI[edit | edit source]

Ruby Light is a gameplay element in Abyssea areas that causes Red Pyxides (treasure chests) to drop from monsters more often and yield better items. Ruby Light can be obtained by defeating a monster in a Vision of Abyssea area using using Physical Weapon Skills, or from a Red Pyxides after a set amount of Ruby Light is accumulated (Roughly 20-30% of maximum). Some monsters such as Blood Bats, Caoineag and Pachypodium do not build Ruby Light from Weapon Skills and it must be built from Red Chest drops.
