this used to be a decent gil maker but SE has now given it to the RMT thats all they ever do is help the RMT u can only do the cargo quest once per day now and thier is no player in the game gonna wait a vanadial day to get 800/2000/3000 gil after the time u have to spend farming the berries SE *beep*ing sucks a big fat 1 but on the other hand this is still ok for RMT and those peeps that use 3rd party programs and can bot the mobs and the quest while they are sleeping/working but i thought SE wanted peeps to stop useing 3rd party programs if so why are they doing crap like this that makes the most since to use a 3rd party program cause it is foolish to sit there and wait 45 min to an hr to make 1-2k gil the **** with that><

Well, I posted below but I came back with 9 stacks. I was still on my SAM55/RNG but I brought a 54RDM/BLM friend. We kicked ***. No downtime, just popping and fighting.

9 stacks made me almost 30,000 gil.

2 stacks of Rolanberries: 6 C. 881's.

I'm going back with 12 stacks and giving it a try.

I'm a SAMURAI55/RANGER, I'm going to go back as a /REDMAGE so I can speed up the resting time.

A C. 881 dropped on every kill.

I will admit I am an abuser of this little push over. I can solo this easy as a 66 THF/NIN by evading almost everyhit, but I go with my pally friend lvl 62 so I can SA DE for 1k+ Dmg. This little guy has a little less than 2k HP. Easily soloable by like a 55 person. Im sure its been said but he drops silk very often. Also you can STEAL silk from him. Its the sexiest thing to see you steal a silk thread. Right now the silks are 22k a stacks so ye-haw. Basically you but the NQ rolanberries from the NPC in port jueno in the duty free shop for 120 gil each. Buy MANY stacks upon stacks. After that go to him and use the trade macro and just keep doing it until his green name pops up.~ Clean rinse repeat over and over. Within the hour I can make about 60k from drops and the 680 gil per berry from the quest galka in Selbina. Good luck and dont be accused of gil selling. Happy camping.

I traded at least 6 berries and it said

"You place a rolanberry"
Nothing happens.

And this was the first time I've ever farmed it... I thought I needed a dated berry so I ran back to jeuno, not knowing it would take more than 1 berry.

i traded 6 stacks(72) of rolanberries (use /item rolanberry <stnpc> if it's crowded)

i got:
22 rolanberry 881
3 Crawlers eggs
7 silk threads

also about 4 or 5 earth crystals but i threw them away to make room.

all 3 of those items dropped when i had full inventory (60/60) so that theory may need to be altered.

i solo'ed it as rdm60/blm30. it wasn't too hard. i kept myself buffed before every battle, and during the battle i tried to keep myself buffed (except somethings like Blink coz it took to long to cast during battle it's not worth it). stoneskin sure helped, and debuffs like slow, paralyze, and blind helped a lot too. i got about 800 exp total from killing him and i did about 20 stacks or so. don't remember my profit. i traded them to the galka in selbina for 800 gil a piece. sure, it's not the best money-maker in the world but that was before i met spook ^^

its really hard to tell if there is a set % rate you can spawn this thing, i noticed that if you do this too much your spawning rate will go down drastically. where it would only take 5 or less it would take almot an entire stack to spawn it. i should test it some more to see if this is true. if it is, then one would ahve to do it every other day or something. it also helps to have a thf in party so that you can get those coveted silks.

ok, 50 drg/whm, soloed him several times, no problem. First time I popped him, a worker crawler linked, but I killed them both and moved on happily. Takes less time to kill him than for jump timer to reach 0. For those wondering if you can take him, I'd say if you can kill worker crawlers without any trouble, you'll do fine.

Was farming this guy one night, he drops crawler eggs as well, so they should add that to the list of what this guy drops d^^b GL to you all!

Edit: I worked for about 2-3hrs on this guy, and i noticed something, let`s say you have 49/50 items (you have some money, and you got the gobbie bags done ^^) well, GC will only drop the rolanberry 881. Okay, that being said, say you have 47/50 items, well, then GC will drop Crawler egg, silk, and the rolanberry 881.

For me though, i got exp, so if i wanted to get all the items, i needed a minimum of 46 items on me (yes, i have all the gobbiebags ^^)

Don`t know if this will work for you guys, but this worked for me for nearly 3 hours, so i`m assuming it should work for you all.

Once again, GL campers! ^^

we have sum ppl on caitsith called the 'quiang's. Of course they are botters and this is what they bot. They have 1 person stay by the ??? and constantly trade. Then 2 others (a mnk and a thf) stand at the spawn point constantly raping the crawlers as* like no tomorow. I actually took it from them once tho when i was still a noob and pting in CN at 34-45. We killed it np cuz we had whm, thf (me), blm, pld, rng, war. Now im a 53 thf and with bloody bolts i pwn this thing. I love stealing it from the bots cuz they have no idea that someone is doing that...lol

First of all this is a TIGGERED EVENT...there is no spawn rate on this, you can buy Rollanberris in Jeuno and trade them to the ??? bowl located in the center of the hive room. After trading a rolanberry to the ??? there is a 1/3 chance that the Guardian crawler spawns...if not trade another rolanberry, if you are lv50+ you can solo this NM (JOB DOES MATTER)
after you kill the crawler it drops a Rolanberry 881
(this is the only gauranteed drop) you go to selbina and trade the item to the NPC named Vuntar, he gives you 800g for each one you trade. This is an effective way to make gil, but only over several hours. hope ive answered all your Qs about this NM
exp off this one!!

I was actually exping off this Nm lastnight. The pt was a lvl 35-36 range and we had Whm, Nin, War, Blm, Rdm and Thf<me>. We were chaning this nm for exp, first kill gave us from 195-200exp, and then we were doing up to chain 4 getting from 220-250exp which was an awsome pt, even when the rdm left, we were still chaining the Nm. so my point is, If u have a good exp pt, u could exp off this nm "Plus" farm this rolamberry. =)

i wouldnt say this has a high silk rate. i killed 8 of em today and got 1 silk... rolanberry 881 every drop though which if you kill this guy once every 2 minutes on average.. you can make a good 20k on those alone. plus it does drop silk and crawler eggs.[Black][/Black]

Alright, I've done this. Every time you place a normal Rolanberry in the ???, it has a 1 in 3 chance of spawning the Guardian Crawler. Guardian drops a Rolanberry 881 every time, and has a decent drop rate of Silk and Eggs (atleast with TH1).

Rolanberry 881 has two purposes that I know. One is a repeatable quest in Selbina. A Galka there will pay 800 for each 881 berry. The second use is to spawn another NM deeper in, which drops a different, rarer Rolanberry. If you keep the chain of rolanberries going, you eventually get Royal Jelly, needed for a quest.

So what does this all mean? You can either do this for the quest, or to make gil. This isn't quick gil, but it's fairly consistent when you need to make a bit. You can make around 2-3 times what you spend, but it *will* takes HOURS. Don't do this if you want to get rich quick.

No, the royal jelly can be found on the Death Wasps in the entrance, so there's more to it than this. I would say that if you are a high enough level, and could solo the other two for the rarer Rolanberries, then you could make **** good money. However, since I don't know offhand how much each of the last two (or maybe three) dated berries are, I don't know.

However, doing this with a Paladin friend of mine will be a good fame booster/gil maker. Not to mention, my little Tarutaru mage self gains club and staff skills with every fight, and a little bit of EXP, so it's all good. I'll probably get him to go back down there sometime next week and we'll each take about 10 stacks of berries.

Like you said, it's not the fastest money maker, but it has a lot of other benefits, which it worth it in my opinion.

Supposedly if you put a regular Rolanberry in the bowl and kill the Guardian Crawler, you'll get a Rolanberry CE 847 needed for the Cid's Secret quest in Bastok.
Haven't tried it yet myself cause it would kill me =(

It doesn't have a specific spawn rate, its a triggered event when you trade something to the ??? in the middle of the ball room. What that something is, I don't know. But it won't spawn without triggering it.

this thing spawns every 45 seconds... i was watching a lvl 55 rdm kill it over and over and over. so i asked "why are you killing it?" and he said "silk... get silk, get money." then i asked how many stacks he had and he said he was almost full, all i'm saying is that i'm going to hit lvl 50 and farm all night all day. getting silks every kill sounds fine by me
