Default NPCs with wrong names?

So I logged in FFXI this morning and I noticed that most of my NPCs are named wrong. They're named after doors that lead into guilds and 'The Gate of Darkness' There's even a few named just NPC.

I need help on how to fix this...

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure where the NPC names are stored. The NPC's themselves have their own dat, but the names . . . maybe in the zone dat? Have you made any changes recently? Perhaps it got corrupted in some way.

i had a problem with this too after an Update, i just removed all my DATs i was using, and it went back to normal, i think this happens from screw ups in DATs when SE changes some

I wasn't playing with any POL utilities and I haven't changed any dats for a while...This did it like right after the update. So I should just change all my dats back to normal?

When in doubt... run the FFXI File Checker... could be possible that the .dat got corrupted during update from SE... *shrugs*

I think alot of guys will be 'knocking' on that door all night long.

Also the fact that until you do a certain Windurst quest there is a Mithran NPC outside one of the houses in Windurst Walls waiting for a certain Taru to pay the bill he's run up with the Boneworker's Guild.

Just the mention of Boneworking and Woodworking puts questionable thoughts in my head, but then again if you had the same R/L friends as I have I'm sure you'd spot things like this a mile off.
