Imperial Standing Notorious Monster (ISNM)

Imperial Standing Notorious Monster (ISNM) events are accessed by trading a specific key item to the entrance of a Burning Circle. Only one member of the party must have the key item. A full party of 6 all with key items may perform 6 consecutive ISNM runs. The key items are obtained from Shajaf in Aht Urhgan Whitegate (after becoming a mercenary) in exchange for Imperial Standing credits. Note that it is not possible to carry more than one of these key items at a time, or receive more than one in a 24-hour period (Earth time). However, it is possible to perform two of your own ISNM runs in a short span of time by purchasing an order, waiting 24 hours, using your order on an ISNM fight, then going back to town to purchase a new order.

Note: As with BCNM, only one person uses the item at a time. You do not need to have an order to enter the BC if you are assisting someone else that has an order.
