On the Ragnarok server, there is a player, Vevla, who is known as the Leech King. I had no idea it was a real mob until someone told me to look at this page. lol

Then again, Vevla has his own page as well: http://vevla.site90.com/

Guess i got lucky on the spawn time. Decided to try for LK, had no idea how long a spawn time he may have. Stood in this room expecting to have about 2.5 hours until RSE time. Was afraid of all the leeches I expected all to link when I hit 1 but this is not how they work (at least not for me). I was here a total of 45 minutes when he spawned. I had been clearing the room continually so there were only a few to worry about and I had decided worrying was not an issue (THF56). I grabbed a screen-shot of me standing beside him in the midst of SA graphic and launched my attack, surprised at how easy a kill he was. None of the remaining leeches were close enough to aggro and I got no drop at all from him (*******).

G/L camping this jerk. lol
Argus and LK are not random...

camping argus is my national past time, ive had him stolen from me twice and he killed him once when i was a 45 drk, during these campings, leech king has spawned for me twice. once me and AMadas camped argus LK popped and he zoned out all the leechs while i soloed King 45 drk this time again. Got the drop as he zoned back in he was a 45 thf. Then once again, after the patch when Arugs now drop Amulet, LK popped and i soloed him w/ bloody bolts as 45thf again got the drop, im 2/2 and 3 mill richer

Came to alla checked what other nm's spawn here. Walked to rooom just to check it out and there he was. Not another person in the room. Got him, and about 10 links (no problems though being 75). No drop, but weird noone was there. Earring sells for 2.5 to 3 million now on Titan.

if your camping argus then sub rng. thats your best chance to claim leech king if it pops instead of argus. a few days ago i was camping argus with around 12 other campers. LK poped and i killed it without anyone knowing. good luck ^^

Hey i was wondering if there is any way to get an accurate spawn time. I assume I can go to bed and see if he is killed, then I know it was killed within those hours, but is there any way to get an accurate time? Some sort of timer or something? I dunno there probably isnt, im just curious.

Leech King twice

Me and 2 friends were after carbys rubys (we got 2 from the first 6 leeches, then got the 3rd person as it was easy and took forever to get the 3rd ruby). I was 45thf/rng (taru) and was widescanning for other leeches after we killed all the ones in the long room. Saw Leech king on widescan and ran around for 10 mins, trying to find out how to get to him. We got there and he was still unclaimed. I had used flee, so i got there ahead of the 55whm and 54 mnk who were with me. He was in the corner, so i sneak attacked and dragged him away from the other leeches. i had him down to less than half health with no major damage to myself, as i was using bloody bolts. I would have had no problem soloing him, though if another leech or 20 had linked, i would have been up the creek without a paddle. anyway, no drop.

next day, back in there with a 50whm getting rusty key. obviously, i kept checking on widescan and also popping in to see if anyone had claimed an argus spawn. after an hour or so Leech king appeared on widescan, so I yelled at the whm to stop healing and come kill leech king again. got 2 links this time, which whm handled with -ga spells as i concentrated on the king. no drop again.

I hope i annoyed all of the bots in the argus room by resetting argus spawn twice^^

Only sells for 1 million on Pheonix I believe, though it would have been nice to get... Dam TH2 not doing its job!

I hope this can clear up that it does not go leech king --> argus ---> leech king ---> argus

It was 19 hours between spawns, by the way

Edit: I had written Bronze key instead of rusty key for the windurst quest

So yah, I was bored today and for whatever resaon it was, I decided to go to the maze ... ran around aimlessly until I came to the room where he spawns.
Threw in a Diaga and gathered all the Leeches and fired off a ThundagaIII
After all Leeches were dead (1 shot for all of them anyway) I went to wave to our bots camping Argus ... came back to the Leech room and did the same as b4.
But Leech King spawned on top of me. I guess He didn't like how I was treating his lil friends...
Wasn't really hard to kill. Took me 2 -ga spells to get rid of all the leeches and I drained my HP back from him what defeated him.

Got the Drop

I got the Leech King today. I was kinda surprise really. The day before, I left my character up while I was sleeping to get a spawn time on Argus. Anywho, woke up and everything went as planned. I got a pretty accurate spawn time and went on with my day. a mere 16 hours later, I was bored outta my mind camping for coffer pops, so I decide to go wait on Argus even though he's not supposed to pop for another 6 hours (according to the 22-36 hour pop rumor).

Well, I get there, and it's been about 17 hours since the last pop. I look around, and there's just a couple people. Of course, there was a couple botters there (2 to be exact. 1 in the small room where Argus used to spawn, and another in the Scorp Room) and 1 other guy, a 60+ WHM who was running around, randomly killing crap. So I'm just ******* off time, killing a few things here and there to build up my TP. That's when it happened.

I used widescan, and just zooned through it. Didn't even really read it. I did notice something strange though. Near the bottom of the widescan list, there was a break between all the "Poison Leech"s regestering. So I scroll up, and sure enough, my eyes weren't decieveing me! Leech King was on widescan! So I nail my flee macros and book it towards the leech room. I move my cursor all around the room, and there he was. Unclaimed, and not a person in sight!

I woulda goofed off a little bit and taken some funny screens and whatnot, but at the time, I didn't want to risk a 1.4 million gil earring to take a funny picture, lol. So I use my shadowbind macros and claim him. No joke, I used Sidewinder at 300% TP and killed him with just that. There's no way in **** I thought he'd be that easy. However, the links were kinda tough. Nearly every leech in the room linked with LK as soon as I claimed him.

Some "Too Weak" mobs may not sound like a lot, but when you have roughly 20 leeches hitting you for 10 damage it adds up. I managed to kill all the links and survive with 72hp, lol. LK didn't drop the earring either. >< In fact, he didn't drop a **** thing. O.o That kinda sucked, but hey, I got a cool story, some nice screens, and an exact ToD. This also proves that LK and Argus can spawn withing 19 hours of each other.

Speaking of which, it's been about 16 hours since I killed LK. Better get ready to go after Argus. ^^ p.s. Here's a link to a pic of me killing him just for further proof. Just so you know I didn't make up an extremely long-winded story so I'd seem cool, haha (Hey, people do it!). p.p.s. I'd reccomend you be lvl55 to take on LK. He himself isn't that hard (lvl45 could take him NP) but the links will tear you up. GL and happy huntings!


All 3 of the in-game photos are kinda dark. I have the brightness of my game turned up, but it doesn't seem to effect my pics. =/ As for the second two, I'm on PS2. So I can't take a pictures of the chat log by conventional means. I had to take pics of my TV with a DigiCam, haha.

I call sheneneggins. You claim to have one-shotted him but the screenshot clearly shows him using a TP attack. Things don't have time to TP when you one-shot them. (I was also going to say that one-shotted things dont cause links, but you avoid that one by having used shadowbind to claim first.)

Got this guy the other day. Me (52MNK) and a couple people from my LS (38RNG and 34THF, and they play next to each other in RL) were camping Argus. Started about midnight I was there for 13 hours while they went to bed and left me to watch for pop. When they woke up and got backon we waited a couple mopre hours and beause we had been BSing each other alot I grabbed one of those Slime monsters and spammed in PT chat "<Provoke> -----> Argus" I ran it back to them and when the slime wasn't quite half dead the THF started yelling LEECH KING!!! because he saw it on the RNG's widescan. I decided to believe him, Disengaged the slime and ran to he leech room witht he slime still stalking me. I quickly moved my cursor around the room looking for it but no sign. I was abotu to go back when my cursor appeared over "Leech King" Unclaimed! I quickly ran over provoked and only got one link then I activated Hundred fists Killed leech king, killed his link then finished off the slime. I survived with ~100 HP and we got the bloodbead earring! w00t! We all passed so the RNG could take it back to Jeuno to sell and it sold for 1.3mil! 25k to put on AH so we all got 425k.

Argus and the leech King are directly related. They are each other's Placeholder. We went back 22 hours after killing the leech king, and Argus spawned exactly 24 hours after the Leech King, But the mother-******* Botter got him! >_< I don't know how long after argus the King spawns, but Argus is 22-36 hours after King.

As far as I know Leech King has nothing to do with Argus. What I've heard is that Argus pops every 24 hours (Earth hours) in the Iron Door room, and has no place holders.

But then again, a lot of other people believe Agus only spawns after Leech is killed. /shrug

well many people bot both of them. now how their timers work leech kind and Argus is 15hr shifts. one will pop in that time and the other wont. now lets say argus pop's leech king will not pop. and the same thing if leech king pops, argus wont. that is what makes their pop time so hard to keep track of. there is no way to tell if the other was killed. unless you bot camp one or something >.<. anyways that is what i no to be true. happy camping w
When i say 15hr's i mean 23hr's after TOD that is. their pop time is 15hrs long.

I'm taru thf45/rng22 with bloody bolts, and i had him down to less than half health by myself with negligable damage to me, before my friends joined in. Both times that i have seen him he has been in the corner of the room, so if you can keep him up against a wall so he doesn't link you will be fine.

OK i am stupid!!!

I was camping Argus because i was bored and waiting for a party. SO, i was tired and was going to warp to Jueno. But, i go lets take a walk through to see if the Leech King is up. then there he is stariing at me. No one is around. So here is the stupid part. I hit my pull macro and bam hit hit with a sleeep arrow. Then the whole room full of leeches attacks. So, it is now 20 on 1. I am like that didnt go well. So i hit invinc and start beating them down. Hit Circle Blade and then biuld tp hit circle blade. it is now me and 5 leeches and i am fight Leech King now. I kill him and the last 5 leeches and earing drops. i am 168/1158 HP but i still have 150mp didnt use it. very bad idea to pull leech in that room they all will attack you. My evasion saved my ****. The kick was i got this earing going ok maybe this is woth 50k that would be cool. Then i go to AH and whatttttttt!!!!!!!!! 700k holy s**t well that is my story

Check This Out. I was watching the logging patterns of a *** bot that has been camping the Leech King since i started playing the game a year ago. He always logged on about 9pm and logged out between 12:30 and 4am. This lead me to believe the Leech King spawned every 24 hour within that time period. Well yesterday when i logged on at 9pm he was in the maze of shakera and when i logged out he was still there. I check first thing in the morning and my *** bot was still sticking it out. So i dicided to set up camp next to the bot and waited til i had to go to work. I left my PS2 on and told my wife to waste the Leech King if he spawns while im at work. I called every couple of hours to see if the bot was still there, and he was. Once i got my lunch break i went home to camp the Leech King so more, at this point he was 14 hour over due. I had no luck during break and was about to go back to work when i did one last search through the mass poison leechs and boom "LEECH KING" right there. Me and the bot both were sitting beside the thing for atleast a couple of minutes. Ether way i cut through him like butter and got the drop, sold it for 600K two days later. First time a bot ever did anything for me. lol ^^

Spawn info
# Nov 01 2004 at 10:08 PM Rating: Decent
What I have gotten from my camping of the NM and from what Argus campers have said, Leech King and Argus' spawns are directly related. Only one of them will spawn every 21-36 hours.

I was also told that the spawn time is counted from the last death of the two NMs. I have solo'd Leech King twice as a lvl 46 drk/thf (also a Taru). I usually can wait until he moves where there will only be two or three links.

So far I am 0/2 and I'm not so sure I will being going back since the history says there has only been 1 sale in the past three months. Hope this helps for anyone wanting to camp it and feel free to correct any of this info that is wrong.

I went to Shakrami Maze with two others to help a friend with her rse. All four of us were killing the high lvl gobs and labrynth scorps and were not getting the chest key, so we decided to try to camp the leech king. We went through the poison leeches like they were nothing, cleared the room several times. after 5 hours we still hadn't seen the NM, but we had got 2 rubys, and that was without a thf in the pt^^

Its a paladin dream earring, highest HP of any earring available, other than a Pigeon+1. And endgame PLD need to go CRAZY on HP, cause the gods/hnms hit for too much damage at a time for any other earring to be useful.

My Linkshell and I camp this every now and then. Once spent 5 hours there with no pop. It gets old so we left. But on Gilgamesh there are 4 bots in argus room at all times. Dont even bother with it anymore. I can stay that if you are trying to help someone get a Carbuncle ruby this is the best place to get it. I have never been in there more then a hr without getting atleast one ruby. We have gotten 3 or 4 in an hour before.

I went to exploring one day, hope to see argus if no one was at camp, lol. but there were 3 ppl camping it, without warrior sub there was no way I'll get the pop, so I left to kill leechs for blood, after I clear the room full of leechs I went back to check on argus ;p , 10 mins later when I came back to search the room there he was THE LEECH KING, I pulled and killed him, no drop, no blood, no nothing >_<

until this day I still wondering would I be 800k richer if i had sub THF.

Me and my buddy were camping Argus and suddenly my buddy runs off.. They were a Ranger. About a minute later he comes back with a claimed Leech King and about 20 Poison leeches. All the people sitting and Voking didn't like that very much. =]

Killed it and about 5 other leeches with a 50-RNG/WAR-??? And me a lvl 48-THF/WAR-10.

My reccomendaton:

When you got 15 unclaimed ****** off leeches packed in a small area don't use the Dagger Weaponskill Cyclone...
I ended up using 2 X-potions and my buddy use one.

To the best of my knowledge, the King is linked to Argus. Same spawn time, if one pops, the other won't. Hence why you can camp Argus or the King beyond their spawn time without them showing at all.
