- Trigger: Kill 99-100 Thread Leeches and he will pop.

Been figuring this out by farming here alone for a long time.

- How I figured it out: Kill one Thread Leech, it takes exactly 5 minutes for the Thread Leech to pop again start ing to count from 0 once the killing blow has been dealt. So, to reach 100 kills, and you kill all of the Thread Leeches in one go, either with Area of Effect spells, or with an Area of Effect Weapon Skill.
It would take 5x20 (""5" minutes "x" the times you have to kill to reach 100 = "20"")

5x20 = 100

So, 100 minutes minimum for Bloodpool Vorax to pop.

Damn, I have too much free time.

I was just passing through Pashow Marshlands and Bloodpool Vorax happened to be there. I soloed him no problem as a RDM 27/WAR 13, but all the leeches he linked killed me.

Oh, and no drop. :(

Yeah so i was farming some bloods and this little guy poped so i figure what the heck ill take it on it cant hurt. Me being a 41 Sam/War i throw up a meditate and a 3rd eye and charge right on in. It was a very easy fight and i got a Carbuncles ruby out of it which i was trying to get earlier that day so it made me pretty happy.

Ha! You are lucky he popped within 3 hrs! I was there 5-8hrs with only 3 pops. I killed him all 3 times, and had TH2 and no drop. This guy isn't worth camping. So don't bother. Sides his drop is worth only 20k on Garuda, last time I checked. I said to heck with it and moved onto other NMs. I figured I had a better chance of getting JJ (The rabbit near sandy).

I've beaten this thing 3 times and it hasn't even dropped a blood. The thing is a stingy little booger. I beat him easy with my bst 46 and with my drg 56. I've also seen friends kill it many times and they never have gotten a drop. He spawns about two hours apart for me and usually around the south or east wall. Good luck on prying anything from his cold little hands... stingy twit!

I've had the pleasure of camping that spot unbothered by anyone for a total of probably 3 hours (cumilatively) over the past month. I usually get stuck running between Hexmarsh and Rotmarsh, because people generally don't bother if they can't get that esteemed spot.

I've had him pop 2 times, got a go at him only once, and got a water crystal out of it. I would' preffered he dropped nothing and saved me the inventory space.

You can more easily get the ruby from killing normal leech type mobs in Buburimu, Valkurm, Maze of Shakrami, Qufim, etc. No need to wait for a NM spawn to try to get such a rare drop.

This guy is also heavily camped by Gilsellers on Bismarck, and for 19-22k is certainly not worth camping. I was there a moment ago, the seller killed everything apart from water elementals which she obviously knew would aggro to my magic casting. Sure enough i was beaten with a provoke on Vorax. Waste of time.

didn't seem that busy when i was there, and i'm on Bismarck. spent 5 hours farming beastman blood and the only other person that showed up was a 75rdm, he killed a few crawlers and leeches then left. vorax spawned after about 3 hours and we killed it pretty quick. no drop though...

The blood bead amulet is barely 10k, i got it once only cause i was farming blood and silk and the gill farmer was busy with a bogy lol. Im pretty sure the reason y this thing is not worth hunting is cause everyone who farms blood claims him if they see him. overall there r other things to hunt but should u see him while walking by, get him :)

I was campping this guy a few days ago. i was there for 12 hours ^_^ 3 stacks of blood 2 stacks of silk ^_^ im 1/5 on bloodbead. its cheap to buy it but camping him gets you lotsa cash on the blood and silk ^_^

he always spawn near the trees and its about a 2-4 hour spawn time sometimes if you can kill the leeches fast he spawns in about 30 min

It's taken 6 attempts to get a drop, but I just got the Amulet from him now. I was farming all alone in the spawn area when up he popped. As I was running to him I was so relaxed, what with being all alone and no competition.

Then suddenly I DC! WTF!!! NOOOOO!!!

Luckily I was still alone when I got back in and he was there waiting for me. :)

EDIT!! I have to add this little story....

I continued to farm after I got the drop. I wanted to complete a second stack of Beastmen Blood so I stayed for a while after. The NM pops again and I'm all alone. Now, as most of you are aware the drop is a Rare item. So I can't get it again since I still hold it from before. So killing him again is a waste (except for maybe Carby Ruby). So I call my LS and tell them that he's popped, all the while following him around unclaimed. Little Taru says he'll come and join me, but needs to get near so that he can invite me to party. I tell him to hurry before someone else comes in. All the time I'm looking around... keeping an eye on the area entance and making sure someone doesn't log into the area behind me and steal the claim.

Anyway, Taru says he's almost there. I'm still stood on top of NM unclaimed right near the entrance to the pop zone. All of a sudden another players comes in! I tell Taru that someone's here and I'm gonna have to claim it. But this player kills one mob and then leaves! Taru invites me to party and I kill NM....

no drop! LOL. At least we tried, and I didn't want to waste the NM completely.

Darwinion said 6 attempts, I don't think he stayed for 6 pops in a row. He was farming Beastman blood too, that's been going for 50~70k a stack on Sylph. I've spent some time farming there too, mainly for the blood & silk (go figure). I'm about 0/15 on this NM for the drop, even a few times I had (2)Thiefs 45+.

I've gotten this sucker twice so far and got the drop the first time. For some reason there is always someone camping him but with I always seem to pull it off them. His a tough lil bugger I got him as a 45 THF and it took me longer than I thought to kill his punk ass. I think he has like 600+ HP. He kept missing though so he never really hurt me. I think his spawn time is 2 hours but I always show up right when his about to spawn. hehehe^^ if only the emperor was that easy.

this is one of the most annoying NM's out there. It seems like he never is going to pop and when he does he rarely drops the Bloodbead Amulet. Not to mention the clan of gilsellers that are always there on the Sylph server.

the two times i've camped this bloodsucker s/he's popped within 30 minutes. no drop 1st time, bloodbead amulet and fiend blood 2nd time.

fun NM to camp because the surrounding crawlers and leeches will give ya something to farm while you wait.

Me and a NIN Came here around the same time, So like NM campers do, We stood there making no conversation whatso ever. I go to get a Drink ( Cause Im Stupid and have horrible Luck) Run back and the NIN was engaged with BV, To show off, I guess, HE used Mijin Gakure on it, Blowing himself up and leaving BV With a small ammount of HP. I began laughing and voked BV, Got the drop, But since Im just a NM hunter, Not a drop hunter, I gave the necklace to him when he warped back to the highlands, Hell, 20k is nothing to the joy of killing a NM and making a Friend. :P Sounds Corny I know, But I dont care. :P

I farm in this spot a lot. I usualy manage to get Vorax when he pop...i think im at 9 solo and its dropped once. I missed it this morning cuz some rdm who wasnt subbing thf and was probably a little too low to farm claimed it. This guy had been there 10 mins....I'd been there 2 hours. I figured ok, sure whatever. I checked him and he had the amulet equipped!! I started talking to him saying "Man, what are you doing? It's a rare item, you can't have 2." And he started laughing and telling me i was wrong that rare items you could have more than one and ex items didnt stack. I laughed back at him and told him to look at the next Beastmen Seal he got.



Remember kids, be polite and know that Rare items means you can only have one.

I farm in Pashhow and sit in his spawn sometimes. I'm 0/11 so far on him. He's VERY stingy with his drop. I HAVE gotten lots of fiend blood from him (worthless). I'm not sure why he drops fiend blood. Seems to me that if the other leeches have beastman blood then the 'harder' NM in the area should drop the same, but thats just me.

Was farming in Pashhow for, well, everything and got bored so I figured I'd kill some of the NMs around there. Killed Jolly Green twice, got the belt once and a dhalia once, went to vorax's spawn area and killed some leeches. Wound up getting about 17 beastman bloods and 8 silk threads (I was killing leeches like mad in case vorax was a lottery spawned NM). I was the ONLY person there for the 3 hours I camped him except for a THF that would come in to kill the elemental that spawns there. I ended up leaving a full 2 hours past when I was planning on it and not even a single spawn. Can someone clarify how he spawns for me?

BTW...if you're out farming and come across this guy, he may not be another Lizzy or VE but that extra 10-20k can be nice if you get the drop.

edit: He's not a lottery NM, killing leeches just speeds up the spawn. After the Dec. 8 update he seems to spawn faster (once every 2-3 hours...1-2 if you're killing leeches like mad). I've killed him at least twice a day when I farm and maybe once every two or three times before the update.

I was farming in this part because I was bored of Palbourough Mines and someone here told me to farm in Pash Marsh. This lil'guy popped at 5:52pm and dropped the fiend blood. I had just logged on at 5:45pm. I had gotten here yesterday but logged off to go to the movies. I kept farming leeches.. all leeches and worms.. even going out to kill wasps for beehive chips. Lil'guys pops again at 7:12pm... less than an hour and fifteen minutes. I guess there is some truth to killing more leeches makes him pop quicker. And the second time around he dropped the Amulet.

in my book if some1 has drawn thier weapon and chases down a mob it belongs to them. i hate it when im lvling and engage a mob as it scampers away. so then i have to ride its butt and wait for it to stop...or use a ranged attack, only to have some1 sneak in and voke it away.

but when it comes to the NM's anything goes.

doing my thing late one night trying to get a Carby Ruby, i decide to give Vorax another go. i've killed him numerous times with no drops. so there i am killing the leeches and crawlers for about an hour and a halfs time. im putting in hours here and i dont want any1 to get this guy after all that. so far ive been alone. im relaxed and ready for BV.

enter mithras....

great. now i have competition and BV is due at any moment...i will not allows these skunks to take what i have worked long at for.
POP Bloodpool Vorax
both of these hussies are in close range to him. my heart just sinks. but i use flee reguardless. one of the mithra is engaged with another leech while the other focuses her attention to BV and draws her weapon. she hesitates for whatever reason. bad move mithra.

Prophet uses Steal, but fails to steal anything from Bloodpool Vorax.

hes mine, but no drop. afterward i got tells about how im a kill stealer and how that was "mine" blah blah...i just reply back simply, "good luck next time ladies. take care." i've lost many marks due to slight hesitations. yes i get pissed but i dont blame any1 who is hunting the same NM as i.
but anyway, BV is stingy like most NM's and i think i'll take a break from him for awhile.
Happy hunting.

I totally agree with you. I'm normally a nice person but when it comes to NM's I am a heartless bastard. NM's just give my heart this rush that hurts but I crave...and when people enter with only 10 mins left I just get crazy. Flash had no time on a thief mashing the jump marco.

im glad to hear that some1 agrees.
and yes NM's have a tendancy to make my blood surge too. it's the passion of hunting these rare mobs, and not just for the drop.
the hours of patient waiting. intensity builds as more and more hunters are drawn to the spawn site.
then it pops and all time seems to slow. your actions (as a seasoned hunter) are precise and automatic. action without hesitition. flawless execution.
then u see your mark. thats when the awesome rush happens to me. just seeing the damn thing unclaimed. and then times slow down even more. around you, the others race towards it too. you can see them coming. damn its a rush.

one of 2 things happen now. either you get it or you dont. when you dont your heart just sinks. i mean it justs drops hard and fast...
but when u do get it no matter what pull method u use, it seems as tho it takes forever to activate. you will never see just how long it takes to draw your weapon or use a voke macro until you use it on an overcamped NM.
and when u finally know what its like to have the spotlight on you during a NM fight surrounded by every1 else you've just out done...
man its a good feeling.
sorry for rambling on like that. its a passion of mine.
Happy hunting!

Just had my first experience the other day with this very thing ^^. Camped Hoo Mjuu the Torrent and he popped right behind me with a BST running him down. Turned around and smashed my stun macro (why voke wasn't on my mind I'll never know). Heart was pounding out of my chest when I got the drop. Everyone was yelling at me wanting to see it and NO ONE believed me that I got the drop. So I put it in bazaar at 99,999,999 just to show the nay-sayers. I'm hooked now.

Just so nobody makes the mistake I made, make sure you know that the Bloodbead Amulet sells for maybe 15k, at least on my server. I hunted this guy for two days (going 0 for 8 on the drop), thinking he dropped the Bloodbead Earring, which sells for in the ballpark of 800k ^^. Be careful...in my mind, this guy isn't worth the time.

o/7 ... This "Bonus" to the farming area, has caused more anguish than "Bonus". The thing that makes me so mad is when the people that don't know who he is show up, and they get the drop first time. I am o/7 Probly more like 0/10 by the time u read this post... ><

I am convinced the mighty Angel protecting this fool doesn't like me. I claimed him for the third time. Isn't 3 supposed to be the charm? Anyway not only did he not drop the amulet, he saw fit not to drop anything. He never drops anything. It's a good thing I only go hunt him on a whim. If I actually needed the Amulet... man. That would really suck.

Camped as a SAM/BST for widescan and killed 5 times with not one single drop
Then got killed by a Bogy that just happened to be passing by
Rest of the time hunting the Thread Leeches for the Beastmen Blood got me one and only 1.4k and thats pennies compared to what i need for a New Great Katana or Spell or Armor peice

While running through this zone, I do a widescan to look for him and bam - there he is.

I'm pretty far away (right at the edge of a lvl 44 rng widescan ability), but I track him anyway expecting to see him disappear about the time I get there.

I end up making it there, but because I was previously farming, I'm at 1/2 health. Not knowing how dangerous he would be to a 1/2 health 44 rng, I shadowbind/eagle eye shot him right off the bat.

Kills 'em in two shots.

And all I got was a lousy Carbuncle Ruby ... I had already spent the time killing leeches for mine and unlocked the stupid job.

Anyway, that's my story. Here's a screenshot to prove (if need be) that the ruby does drop from him.

He spawned after about 2 hours of running around and killing the Leeches and Crawlers. I had no difficulty whatsoever fighting him as THF30/NIN15, though he didn't drop the Bloodbead Amulet. He did, however, drop a Carbuncles Ruby.
