Default Encounter master + battlemania?

How do these two work together? Can I turn regular encounters down but still get more rares than normally? Or does bm just raise the proportion of rates in total encounters?

Encounter master increases or decreases the amount of encounters you get.

Battlemania increases the chances of rare monsters to appear.

So if you have Encounter Master on less encounters. you will still encounter less monsters than you usually do.

I think It's better to have Encounter Master on more encounters

Yes, I always had both abilities activated when I tried to run into rare monsters. Seemed to work pretty well, because I never had to search for long.

Same for me, rare monsters show up pretty fast.

Indeed. Also with the Monster Collector skill enabled I could tame both Tonberrys in few minutes. I think I've got the last missing monsters in a hour or so. Plus obviously the one in the NE of Academia 500 AF that takes a while to reach and one must escape if the wrong monsters will show up.
