Ya this guy is cake. I've soloed him as 58RDM/29BLM, and as 60RDM/30BLM. He seems to have pretty bad accuracy. So far I'm 0/3 on his drop, but only worth like 10k, not enough to actually camp this 21hr + respawn.

As everyone who's fought this probably knows...this isn't a WAR, it's definitely a RDM. Someone said further down that all Weapons can buff themselves, but that's not true either. They have both WAR and RDM classes among them, and only the RDMs can use magic.

Anyhow, was farming lightning clusters as a 72BLM and jumped in the hole in the back of Gusgen Mines and landed right on top of this guy. I ran around him for a minute, and he didn't aggro, so I figured I was safe to melee him. Pulled out my staff, and smacked him for 60, which barely moved his health bar. At this point, I got very worried. So I cast Aero IV. His health bar barely moved, so I figured I'd gotten a resist, but then I saw he took the full amount of damage. Ok, so he has tons and tons of HP.

This guy will hit a 72BLM ( Errant Gear, so crappy VIT =/ ) for about 50-60 damage, and more than likely he will have Enwater on, so expect the additional damage or be prepared to Dispel if you can. I will say this though- he hits hard, but with capped evasion, he misses A LOT. He was only landing about 1 out of 5 attacks on me.

I gave up trying to melee and pulled him into one of the tunnels, and there I was able to sleep/nuke him pretty effectively. He didn't resist much, and I was able to stick Silence/Bind with no problems ( Enfeeb capped ). I used Fire III and Blizzard III, mostly, and I Aspir'd when I could. I could have used bigger spells but they didn't seem to be worth the MP since the fight was loooong. The whole process took about 20-25 minutes, which would have been OK if it had actually dropped something. No exp, no crystal, no halberd, just a screenshot of me wailing on another NM. Guess I can cross another one of the list, if nothing else!

I didn't even know this thing existed until I ran into it. I did manage to solo it as a 63 WHM/THF (this was during today's Magical Pattern week for Hume Males), but not before it nearly depleted my entire MP bar. Boy, lemme tell you guys -- that was a marathon fight for my standards.

No drop, which sucks. But I did manage to snag 15 exp from it. A small victory of sorts.
What's a signature?

I was mining peacefuly in gusgen one day as a 60 rdm. All i had on me was me field tunica and workers gloves and boots. I also had a sword but meh. Anyways i drop down a hole minding my own buisiness when all of a sudden i see this mob standing there. I run like a...person and i realise i had no aggro. i move closer. In fact i run right infront of him with no aggro. I cast refresh to see if it'd aggro me then but nothing. i figured hey might aswell test my luck ^^ i buff up and engage. Bad mistake. i had to convert when it was at 75% health. then i ends up getting me down to about 130 MP and about 300 HP. with 6 mins on convert im like cya and i bind it and start casting escape. it gets unbound (SE hates me) half way through casting and it hits me. thankfully it didnt interrupt casting. i heal up and go in again, mining peacefully once again.

I really should have read the posts here first.

Was trying to get my RSE key today and got stuck in the back parts of Gusgen. Knowing there was a chance that Hecatomb was up, I waited about 15 minutes, hoping that he had been killed already.

Dropped down the hole, and im about 3 to 4 feet from him.
No aggro. I figured I was safe, so I started to head to the front of the mine. Heard the weapon aggro sound and thought he was attacking me. He got a RMT. I laughed and moved closer to watch the death.

Walked up to Hecatomb assured that I would get no aggro. Right in his face actually. He turns to walk away, and then aggros me.
Dodge, Focus, Berserk, Counterstance, Boost, Hundred Fists. Got about 75-80% of his life off before he killed me with Whirl of rage. I am now only 123exp into 55. I really need to get G2 finished now.
This used to be pretty fun.

sry about doulbe post, this guy must be a rdm or he had regen, stoneskin blink, bio II, poison II, fire and water II. I'm a 60drk at this time i had /smn for fun of it. went exploring through here after clearing a path for some eco warrior groups and found a hole dropped down and kill all the bomb and elementals and moved to a side wall to heal. Bam he pops, and i get agro'd by a too weak fly while healing, well i kill the fly and check here. He is marked 48 so i figure what the **** i drain pull him and spam a gullotine. 500dmg yay, but i notice he is hitting for 40 a shot and not missing and to boot he had stoneskin, blink, and regen on b4 my second swing. i got him to about half then reallized i was losing, insta warped, probably could have gone head to head with him if i was /nin or /whm but not for a polearm, and what are ppl saying 2.3mil for this thing! i would pay more than 30k.

Dropped down as MNK60/BLM25 (For warp when I was done) to get the ??? For the holla quest, when I find him there. He didn't agro so I ask someone if I can take him. They say no, so I make sure to stay clear, then get the ???. Then, being the high headed MNK that I am, I decide what the ****, I'll try. I boost 11 times, engage, chi blast, dodge, focus, hundred fists. It's going pretty good, I throw off 2 raging fists for 500+, then hundred fists wears off and he's at 1/3 life still, I'm at 3/4 (chakra already used.). Now it's down to a battle of endurance. the fight drags on as i slowly build TP, then when I finally have 100% TP i let off a raging fists for 350, which finished him off. I still had 526 HP left too! I doubt I could have won without my 2 hour but maybe if I was /WHM or /NIN I could have, it was a fun fight though and I'll have to go back soon. ^^;

dropped down into his spawn area when i was mining one day. saw this guy claimed by another miner who was just sleeping it while he was waiting for help. somehow he got aggro by a gallinipper and had to sleep that, losing claim on juggy. i took claim as a 67rdm/33blm in my mining gear. took me like 30 minutes to kill him because i was sleeping him, binding him, water 3 then sleep again. i kept myself buffed and used aspir when i could. finally he died with no drop but it was cool because gusgen was packed that day.

Juggler is listed as Warrior, but it's definatly not Warrior unless it has 2 full jobs. It was casting Blink, Bio II, Water II, Stone II, etc. with my encounter. So i'm thinking it's a RDM.

LS friend (54BLM) was down in the basement getting the ??? for Teleport-Holla quest when it aggro'd them. They kept it at bay by sleeping it and some nuking here and there so definatly soloable by BLM at that level if play cards right. I though i'd come on RNG(64)and lend a hand since i've never seen this NM but only heard of and we boh duo'd it the best we could with few attacks here in there with sleeping while BLM rested MP. It was pretty easy didn't give too much trouble hit for around 50-80ish points of damage at those levels, no drop - was kinda disappointed it didn't grant a title though ; ;

This sucker is soloable with a 60 PLD providing you have AF equipment and +30 VIT to your stats. ^^;

I was hitting the guy for 50-80 hits with my Gluttony sword and it took me over 15 minutes to defeat him. I went back and did the math, this guy has over 15,000hp considering the hits I did to it, and even that is questionable (he might have 20k+.) He was averaging 15-25 damage hits which wasn't too bad, and the most he did was his AoE which did around 150+. No drop except 15 exp, but it was fun to actually fight a NM that day while mining.

He was pretty easy, layed down a few attacks to hit me for 200+ but other then that he did about 30 dmg a hit...He's got high HP, took me about 5-10 minutes to kill, penta thrust doing 500+ damage barely budging his HP bar >.>

No drop... I think this weapon goes for 16-20k on Ramuh last time I checked.

Bumped into this chap a couple of times mining as WHM 55. Me and a BLM 60 got it to about two-thirds HP before deciding that we would inevitably lose, since we didn't have much MP left and had been caught unawares. We Escaped out of there then came back with a PLD 59 and battered it pretty convincingly. No drop though.

Mining bots and those people who camp mining points nearby 24/7 ought to be really careful! Why, some unscrupulous WHM in the area could cast Stoneskin, lead the Juggler right to them, then Flash + Warp to safety leaving them to die.

Of course, I'm sure no-one would EVER do something like that on purpose, would they....?

i ended up using mijin gakure, if i had someone else about my lvl and i was ready for the fight we could probly take him

The bombs in there shouldn't agro your Utsusemi. They are all to weak and best to my knowledge don't agro Ninjutsu Magic. Used that to my best skill while doing alot of farming in Ifrit's Cauldron as 20WHM/NIN.

This isnt such a difficult NM, me (55 nin) and my rdm friend (45) took him down easily, I think he never was able to hit me at all during the whole fight, the annoying thing is he has a huge HP pool, so it takes some time to kill him.

Hey man, I spent 31 lvs as a whm/war before switching to a drk/war. I never had any problems with mp, and i could contribute to melee better than most melee jobs (with a hammer anyway). As long as I had a good tank then there are no problems (but then again, I always have good tanks, inferior players get the boot from my parties.)

I was in Gusgen mining because I was bored as 62RDM and saw him so I attacked him. Easy fight, just kept hitting him with my sword until he died. Drain and aspir work fine on it. Got 14exp and no drop, but after looking the drop up it wouldn't have been so great anyway. Typical Weapon type with the aoe stun, just a lot of extra HP. Nevertheless, a fun little fight wearing nothing but +1 mining gear and a sword.

I Was mining in da mines when I seen some one runing for there life so I did the nice thing and gotthe Arrgo off and thought I could take it. Well I was wrong I only had on my Mining gear so it killed me with little effort. So of Course I had to come back for revenge, So I HPed picked up my RDM AF armor and went back. Once I got ther I buffed up with protect III, Stoneskin, and Phalanx
did my enfire and ice spikes spell and went at it, about 15 stoneskins, 4 phalanx and 1 convert llater it was dead. And I got a big pile of nothing for my effort. So my advice to u unless u can kill it quick don't waste ur time.

This mob is no where near as hard as people make out. The only problem with this mob is his insane number of hit points. I was in the mines helping out a 38 RDM with RSE and we ran into him. A very long ways from his spawn point by the way. More then likely someone tried to take him and they zoned it. Anyways at the time I was a 53THF/26NIN. The fight was insane in length, roughly about 14 mins, but all in all he only did a total of 500 points of damage to me. His accuracy is so bad to a thf that i was able to recast Utsusemi almost everytime w/o delay, making it really easy to beat him outright. Unfortuantly no drop, but I did get 16xp ^^.

But from a recomendation standpoint to be safe. You should be able to take him in a well organized party of 6+ at lvl 40-42. Soloing him shouldnt be a problem at 52+ if you have a ninja sub. Without that sub I wouldnt take him on unless you were 60+ without a really tough uphill battle. Just think of this battle as a lower class HNM battle. It is going to be a really long fight so be prepared for him. Personaly though I dont think his drop is worth the headache. ^^

Hey everyone, Juggler is nasty. If ya didn't already know that. As a RDM60/BLM30 i was just running around dropped down a hole and it says something like, "Juggler Hecatomb misses Brennet." I go WTF? So I turn and start fighting it. I buff up during the fight, silenced him and just kinda went. Could I have soloed it? Maybe. But he got kinda made at about 1/4 his HP left and did something like this:
Juggler Hecatomb readies Smite of Rage.
Brennet takes 163 points of damage.
Brennet is stunned.
Juggler Hecatomb readies Smite of Rage.
Brennet takes 125 points of damage.
Brennet is stunned.
Juggler Hecatomb readies Smite of Rage.
Brennet takes 134 points of damage.
Brennet is no longer stunned.
thats when a kind DRG offered his help and i gladly accepted. we took the rest in no time and got no drop. 8 xp though! Thanks peacekeeper!

This guy looks like a dancing weapond on steroids.

It owmed me bad. I asked LS hey is that a NM?
there were like yup. Can I take it? They asked how many pets were around to charm. I said about a dozen. So i charmed a fly, send it to the juggler. The fly died in like 10-15 sec and i was like "hmmmm" time to run. I died of course.

Lesson learned: Do a little research before attempting to fight NM.

Well, the past month I have been mining in Gusgen. I am a 57 SAM ***** Haubergon) and can beat just about anything there with only mining gear and my trusty GKT. But oh no not him. Of course, they make him spawn in that pit so when you drop down, you pretty much get aggro. But, luckily, I haven't died yet. Out of the 20 or so times i have fallen on his head, every single time I manage to escape. 1: He is very slow.
2: He quickly loses interest in you. Anyways he is very strong, I doubt anyone without a healing magic job/sub could solo this thing with ease.

I pulled this ***** off a fool miner while doing the seal quest. he Hits hard, couldn't land silence on it, but my hp barely fell to the yellow the whole time. Honestly I had less trouble with Unvanquished, but Hect is still not some b-team HNM as people like to think. Weapons are all tough as nails, they are rdm's ^^.

61 rdm/15 thf = stomped juggler. Bet my Fleuret my carapace gear is what made it so easy tho.

Ok.. I was mining just mning gear and a Vikings Axe.. I see him, so i'm just like what the ****. Of course I attack his ***. I look at his HP, not a dent. Then he crit hits me for 191.. I'm like "ooh fuc*" So I run for it. I see a WHM raising someone, so I ask him to join me he says **** no. So Finially my HP in red while I kite his *** around a 36 RDM helps me. He rest MP, while I kite, fight, Rampage, repeat. About 10 mins later I finially beat him. No drop though if its worth 1 mil or so on Ramu when I look later. I am so camping his ***. The moral of this story.. Dont attack NM weapons!! They will *** rape you!!BTW I am a 55WAR/NIN but I had THF sub for flee x.x

Yeah, this guy is very nasty for his level. Bumped into him yesterday as BST58 while doing Tele-Holla quest down there and killed him (no drop ;_;), but it took two Funguar Familiar jug pets and that makes him about as tough as a normal EM mob at my level. He has a massive amount of HP.

Definitely a RDM and must be at least L48 because he started spamming Cure IV when his HP (eventually) got low. ^^

Respawn time is 21-24 hours according to Mysterytour.

Soloed him as a 56 THF/WHM.

Used sleep bolts when I had SA ready, and when I needed to recast stoneskin.
You can use daggers to drain MP from him, so in the end it was just an endurance run.

Does anyone know his respawn time? couple hours? 24hours?

I killed this thing last night as a 51RDM/15THF. (I was farming of course, lol)

It was probably THE UGLIEST FIGHT of my career. Came upon him just as an entire party was Escaping, thought "Ooooh, NM!" and laid into him as soon as he went yellow. I'm a little less than brilliant that way ><
At the time he was down maybe a fourth of his HP.

His first hit landed HARD, about 63 HP, and I thought oh ****...tossed up Pro3, Phalanx, Spikes, Regen, Refresh, Enfire, then took a risk on a Stoneskin. The spell went off, which is probably what won me the fight in the end.

Paralyze, Slow, Poison II, Bio II and Dia II, and SILENCE. If you fight this NM silence is a must, it casts tier II nukes including -ga spells. Agreed on the RDM job, he had Enwater on when he first started hitting me if I remember right.

A very long and very close fight, blind luck was my saving grace. Slept once to Convert and rebuff.(encountered and fought him on the track leading down to the spawn area).
I'd brought my gear for Movalpolis, thank god. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIGHT THIS THING IN MINING GEAR.

50 exp. O.o
No drop. ; ;

I was just minding my own business, trying to get a key because i was doing RSE for a little extra $. I see a lvl 70 war just walk by casually so I keep going.. this **** starts beating the crap out of me.. I take off, dont really make it too far, because the door was shut, so now im down to 250 hp.. I take a couple swings knock 250 or so off him and then I fell asleep in the corner.. while the lvl 70 War starts fighting it, He gets a Divine Seal + Cure 2, and about 3 or 4 other Cure 2's... he made it out with about 1/4 HP... this **** is tough!

so im farming keys in gusgen and this weapon spawns... im like ok, maybe i can do this (56rdm/28thf) so i buff up, and attempt to debuff him.. things go well until my sword skill and evasion skill start to skillup extremely fast. then he starts casting lvl 2 elemental spells. so i disengage, cast bind and use Flee. i keep running to the doors so i can zone. and they are both shut. so im thinking, maybe im okay..someone else may have got him. then he backhands me into the corner and goes to town...
:( oh well, i learned my lesson
holy crap

My sister encountered this horridly evil creature just now. She's a 55 PLD, and was wearing mining gear, and just had her sword. I'm watching the TV while she's playing, BTW. She stumbles upon this hole, and I joke about how it'd be funny if she could punt one of the jellies into it. So, to explore, she just dropped down the hole. The evil thing spawned just as she hit the floor. I said, "Oooh! NM! Killit!!"
She did her best to whack it, but it was nuking her good. She wasted her MP trying to heal herself, but barely made a dent on the horrid evil thing.
Short story short, she got murdered. She was in a mining party with a few friends at the time too. One of her friends went after the NM himself. Though, he was a 55 DRK, and wearing feild gear too. Poor sucker died to the NM too.

They're down there right now, waiting for the third member of their party to hopefully find them so he can Tractor/Raise 'em.

First, his job is definatley RDM, not WAR. Last time I checked, WAR-type mobs didn't cast blink, stoneskin, en-spells and regen on themselves. Whoever posted it as WAR was probably doing so based on it's double attack ability, but this is just a passive ability that all Weapon-type mobs have. Example: The ~lvl30-35 weapons in qufim double attack, but they will cure themselves and nuke you if they feel like it =P

I see some people talking about the level on this guys, so I'll make a few comments.

I think the level is about accurate. It might be a few off, at most, but that's it. He certainly cannot be any higher than lvl52, as I got no exp from killing him at lvl68 (-15 levels is the weakest exp from 'easy prey', 12 exp, at this level).
That nasty 'Nortorious Monster' tag can mean a lot of things in this game. In some cases it's just a mob of similar type to others in the area, and is a few levels higher. This NM falls in the category of 'no rules apply with NMs'. After reading through my log killing him last night, he has ~5000hp. Mind you EXP mobs that are rated lvl80+ don't have this much hp, so the level can seem confusing.
SE just randomly defines a lvl number to some NMs for a basis of setting stats on it and for giving exp. Yea this should probably be bumped a bit higher, but oh well.

...Just as a reference, it took me about 10 minutes to kill this meanie at lvl68. Quite unpleasant. The only thing even remotely kind about this NM is that he doesn't use a 2hr.
Odd call

My friend called me up one time when he was mining to run over and kill this thing... he was a level 61 rdm at the time and all he could do was stall this thing... from the time it took me to get from yugott grotto to gusgen, he only had it down about 20% health, and idk how much longer he was fighting it before he gave me a shout... sure a 60 rdm could solo it if they were extremely careful and didn't mind fighting it for a couple hours... has enough hp to make Water III look like a melee hit... eventually we took it down, after smn 2-hour and lots of close calls... no drop... but you gotta give it some healthy respect at any level...
(Deity of your choice) knows I'm not perfect.
