Earlier my friend had told me that he has seen the rampaging ram so I was kinda interested and since rampaging ram was gone a started looking for this guy, started searching in the circled area and not even five minutes into it i was up near the middle portion of the circle. Killed him using my level 33 pld/war, it was little rough at some points, he'd be lot more devastating if he didn't miss every other hit. In the end I only had 210 hp left after using my 2 hour. .

Soloed this guy no problem as 40Monk/Thief. Here are a couple tips:

1. If there is competition, you will have a challenge. Get some help otherwise you'll be counting on luck to get the claim. I camped LL for four hours only to lose claim twice - even if you have widescan, competition for this will be frustrating... though not impossible. Get a friend to help - keep him/her on the East side of the path and you stay on the West.

2. Run along the path from the East Side of the zone all the way to the clearing right before the Crag... on the East Side, the Place-holder Rams pop a bit off the path but you can still spot them.

3. Bring an empty inventory if you can... especially if you are subbing THF. You will get tons of rams skins and horns (currently going for 1k and 2k respectively on Sylph. I made like 30k during this whole ordeal... would've earned more if I made more room in my inventory.

4. If you are up against another person, see if that person already got the other horn from Rampaging Ram - if not, make a deal to either camp in Kon. Highlands or see if he'll move... he probably wants the competition just as little as you do. My only competition today offered to go to the Highlands while I camped in La Theine... once I got the horn, I let him know and he did the same for me... it worked out so we both got it done simultaneously without having to compete against each other... (good looking out SpaceGhost)

As for the fight... pretty easy for my lvl 40 monk (with a gimped THF sj). Had like 380hp left in the end.

Good luck!

Soloed as Bst58/Whm29 Just dropped, I think it's 100% drop . I've had the Quest and the Rampaging Horn for ages. I wasn't doing anything particular so went over to see if I could finish the Quest. No rams on wide scan, I didn't see anyone else there, less than ten minutes pop H9 next to the wall near the path, engaged, crab familiar hitting for over 200. Watch out for max HP drain took over 750 hp. My pet could have soloed it, I should have let it, I ended up with less than 300 HP from over 1000. Easy fight at this level just watch out for the max HP drain, be prepared for it. I was lucky with the pop, I've tried to get the Horn a few times and never seen the Ram. Good luck and keep trying.
Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
Lucky S.O.B ?
# Jan 30 2008 at 4:02 AM Rating: Decent
Hmmm. i must be the Luckiest S.O.B ever.

I had this quest for 6 months before I decided to complete it the other night. I subbed my gimpy RNG11 for wide scan and ran out to Konschtat Highlands for Rampaging Ram.

I ran around like a nutter between the crag and Valkrum Zone killing Tremor Rams, make sure you go out as empty in space as possible because I had over 20 Ram Horns selling for 1000 a piece on Leviathan, and 15 Ram Skins going for 500 a piece. Any way after about an hour of Tremor Ram mutilation, I get the pop at H8 along the mountain wall.

Bolstered by my good fortune I legged it to La Theine Plateau for Lumbering Lambert.

I was there for no more than half an hour killing Battering Rams between H9 - I9 when to my amazement there was Lumbering Lambert on my Wide scan. So I hot foot it over only to see it claimed by some random guy that had just gone by me 2 minutes before on a Chocobo (I know because he Checked me as he passed). To say I was ****** was an understatement, especially when you get the emote /em grins roguishly at <t>. Anyway, I put that behind me and cracked on for another 3 hours killing Battering Rams. No pop, so I called it a night.

The next day I spawned on La Theine so I thought, what the hey and started killing Battering Rams again, when a LS member said they were looking for Rampaging Ram, so after imparting my word of wisdom on how i got it the night before, he got Rampaging Ram about an hour after starting, and came over to La Theine and helped my cover the area, 2 Sub RNG's help take the load immensely, and after killing Battering Rams for and hour and half, Lumbering Lambert popped by the Trees at J9.

WE are going back tonite to try get Lumbering Lambert for him, i will update once we get him his horn.

Good luck to you all.

Was out farming rams with a my friend Madtown (57RDM) and this guy popped. I'm 57 SAM at the time.
I had already done the purple belt quest but Mad had not so I ran up and started fighting. Took him down in 4 hits with one Tachi: Junpu at 1117 dmg.
Piece of cake.

I read a lot of posts and I thought I'd share my experience to those looking to do the Purple Belt Quest:

1st off I honestly think the only PH for both Rampaging Ram, And Lumbering Lambert are the southern Ram pops. Given the NM spawn location, and the pop time after kills.

2nd: Rams or NM will pop almost exactly 4:20 in game time after you kill them.

3rd: Make friends with those in the Area. I talked to a JP ninja that was killing rams in LTP, and turns out he just wanted materials for synth, so i traded him what I had from camping Rampaging Ram, and ended up having 2 sets of wide scan, to cover the entire pop area, and 100% claim rate on Battering Ram pops.

4th: Be patient. I got Rampaging Ram 1 hr after arriving and clearing out PH. (Also killed Haty at H-8 95% moon 13:45 firesday for anyone interested) However, I have since been camping Lumbering Lambert for over 3 hours. I have not missed a single Battering Ram pop since then, so whoever tells you its on a 90 minute timer is lying. I have not yet seen Lumbering Lambert pop. I know between me and this JP ninja I've teamed with, that we have claimed all Ram pops, and are covering the entire area, and its taking a LOOOOONNNNGGG time.

5th: Go prepared. do not show up with a level 4 bst sub and expect to see/claim the NM. It is a pretty large area and I cannot cover the entire area alone with wide scan as 56MNK/24RNG. If you can arrange it have something to do in the downtime between 10 minute pops.

6th: If your are a monk, realize that though you likely do not need the purple belt, or perhaps even the brown belt, you cannot obtain your best waist armor without camping these NM's.

I'll update when I finally kill this NM, because I am not sleeping until I do. too many favorable conditions at the moment with 100% ram claim rate for me to log lol.

EDIT: ok, so i fell asleep after 7 hours of camping this NM with my JP partner. I did not have a chance before maintenance to camp him, so I'm hoping to snag him soon after. as for the above poster talking about how he incredibly solo'd it as 57 sam, WHY!? i personally do not want to hear about people's "ZOMG I SAW A RAMZOR AND WTFPWNED HIM AS (level) (job)!" It has already been established that any job at 40 can solo him with ease. Please add something useful.

Edit2: ok after 1 pop cycle I tagged and bagged LL. he popped in the ruins for me at H-9. GL to all.

This is an informative post. I've had this quest active for nearly three years, and reading this gave me new resolve to get it done.

Here's my experience:

The biggest point of annoyance about this quest is that you're not only competing with others trying to complete it, but people farming the ram skins/horns and lanolin cubes. Plus, there's the occasional group of level 75's hunting Bloodtear Baldurf and Steelfleece Baldarich.

About a year ago, a linkshell friend helped me get the Rampaging Ram. I've had the Rampaging Horn sitting in storage since then. I've tried multiple times to get Lumbering Lambert to pop, with no luck.

Determined this time, I went on my 64 White Mage and subbed my level 1 Ranger so that I could have widescan. I hate to say I've tried tracking down Lambert more than once without it. Using it was invaluable. No wonder I never succeeded until now.

I spent four hours last night, killing each pair of Battering Rams at every 10 minute pop. I got a handful of Lanolin Cubes to vendor for nearly 700 gil a piece.

After I killed another two Battering Rams, I spotted Lumbering Lambert in my widescan. I can confirm that the spawn time was indeed 4:20 Vana'diel time. I set my widescan to track him and went running. He was in I-9, on the path between the ruins and the Crag of Holla, at the edge of the mountains. I had just seen a high-lvl Blue Mage go running toward the Crag, which had me in a panic. What if I spent the last four hours camping this ram, just for someone else to get the claim?

But when I got there, he was all alone, waiting for me to take him down.

Got my Lumbering Horn, completed the quest, and got the Purple Belt. It's a great Monk belt, but I hate to say that for all the work I went through to get it, I'll never use it. I only play mages, Summoner, Bard, etc. Anything that casts spells or songs, or else it doesn't hold any allure for me.

Sometimes I really wish they would give us a choice of quest rewards in this game.

Anyway, it's another quest cleaned up (and one I've been wanting to finish). Maybe it'll give me Tenshodo fame?

Fought this yesterday with my DRG friend.

Was just out from the night before killing rams, hadn't even killed one the next morning and I saw him standing out in front of the craig! I shot him with my bow and began kiting him since I saw a load of gilsellers real close... think they had some funny ideas lol.

My friend gets a tele and we take him out pretty easily (DRG and SAM both 75) Was a fun fight though and I was finally able to get my horn for my Brown Belt. One more item to go and I can sport one for my mnk!!

I was in La Theine farming ram skins for leather crafting. Killed the first ram upon arrival, waited the standard 10 minute pop time. Turned around, and there he was. I voke and get claim. I was level 30war/thf. I was doing really well, getting alot of crit. hits (one for 356, that I'm uber proud of)). And he started going to town on me. Got me down to about 30% health and I two-houred. Got him down to 10% before he wiped me out. I asked a whm friend who was in Windy to come out and raise me. Spent 10 minutes waiting for him, while Lambert stood over my dead corpse. He got out and raised me. I turned around and a 72rdm had him claimed. I was like NUUUUU. He invited me to party with him and took all the hate while I beat Lambert down, in my weakened state. I got Lumbering horn. If you read this, thanks again Saiph on Fairy for your help!

I'm on the Ragnarok server. This guy popped up for no reason just now in G-9. I wasn't looking for him or killing any sheep/rams, I just... ran into him. There was an unusually high amount of battering rams roaming about lately, though; I don't know if that has anything to do with it. But I guess this guy spawns even without "lottery".

Along time ago, as soon as I hit level 18 from the dunes, I headed back to sandy, to change to whm and start leveling my sub.. I saw lumbering lambert and tried avoiding him, but it was too late, he saw me ( deleveled ) and to make a long story short.. I came back at level 60 and camped him for 5 hours.. and ripped his horn off his head.. :)

Can you get the drop even if you havent started the quest yet?

Btw, if all Battering Rams are place holders then the spawn area above is incomplete. I've seen Rams spawn almost as far north as E-7.

Edit: Answering myself:

1. Yes, you can get the drops without having started the quest.

2. Are both rams placeholders? _Probably_ not. Judging from the map above and my own observations only the southern ram is a placeholder. This is _probably_ also true for Rampaging Ram.

Saw him for the second time. First time I saw him he destroyed me as a WHM36/BLM18. This time I was a WHM45/BLM22, and much more prepared after beating the tar out of Rampaging Ram (which I tried to nuke down and then had to Benedict at the end since he hits hard and has 8 million HP)> So to wear him down I would Flash>>Stoneskin, repeat and beating him down with my AF hammer (may have thrown Dia II out once, not sure). Took a hella long time but I eventually wore his 10,000,000 HP **** down. I also swear he went into some sorta weird hyper-mode at the end.

Oh yeah, some low lvl ran up and called for help from an orc (?) aggro about halfway through the battle. I felt bad since I had to say "Umm, this is a bad time", and I'm a WHM45...

I read through the threads on Lumbering Lambert and Rampaging Ram, and I was told that their spawn times are 1 1/2 real time hours. Well that just isn't true. I camped Lumbering Lambert for 5 hours with no spawn. I killed Rams every 10 min and I made sure to note, whenever I didn't get to kill him, their time of death. So I'm sure that I couldn't have missed him. So to those that were lucky enough to get him really fast, send some of that luckiness over here when I prepare to camp the next three NM's for my brown belt.

no good drops??? he drops one of the items for the purple belt quest which is required to do the brown belt, which I think is also required to do the black belt quest. seems like a really good drop to me, you being a 75mnk should know this. and if you already have those mentioned belts killing him is rude.

I thought it might be useful to point out that although Rams have a 4 hour respawn timer for a specific location, you will find that a new Ram pops approximately every 11 minutes. This is only a general rule. I've found that another will pop about 4 minutes after the last one died. So keep checking your widescan. This might be considered common knowledge to people who are familiar with Ram camping, but I was fairly new to the experience and found this out only from doing it, even after reading the posts.

On my three camping trips, I've seen him spawn twice (didn't get the claim on the first one). Once was at the edge of I-9 between the mountains, and the other time was H-9 in the ruins.

Also, if you find that you seem to have competition for Rams, I encourage you to talk to whomever might be competing with you and find out what they're up to. You might discover that all they want are skins and are willing to team up. Two pairs of widescans are better than one! Of course you might find that they're out for LL or RR as well. At the very least you'll find out if they're a jerk or not and whether your competition is friendly. ~.^

I hope this helps! Happy hunting! (*^_^)b

Finally took this shoop out yesterday. Camped it for only about a half an hour after numerous 2-3 hour camping trips. Killed him as a 50mnk/14rng. No problem at all of course but he did use a petrify attack that I resisted. I don't know how I managed to beat out the 50rng/25thf who was also hunting him. It was my time, I guess. Got the horn and completed the Bastok Purple Belt quest. I only activated the quest some 2 and a half years ago...<sarcasm>

Ram Spawn Times and Information

The normal Rams in the area (Battering Ram) respawn @ 4 game hours from Time of Death.

I killed 2 placeholders around the northwest side of the valley around the G-10 area. Lumbering Lambert popped between the mountain ranges @ H-8. This is a bit outside the range shown on the NM maps I've seen, including the one on this page.

Best bet obviously is Widescan - a level 1 Ranger's is sufficient. Beastmaster 20 isnt as good, but better than nothing.

Follow the road east and west from H-9 to I-9. Scan every few game minutes. Once you've found and killed a Ram, note time of death, and expect another to pop in this area 4 game hours later.

Kept DEF Down, Poison, and Blind on it (Bolts). Kept casting Uts: Ichi, I hit him for 20-40 a Dagger. He hit me once for 46 DMG, Great Bleat Missed me. Dropped 5 Skins, a Horn, and the Lumbering Horn. I would say a THF/NIN around level 36 could solo this, just use Bloody Bolts if you get hit.

Just killed this guy after 2 and a half hours of battering rams, and a death from the evil Bloodtear Baldurf.

I used hundred fists because he made me wait so **** long and he went down within a minute, Ragingfists did 403 damage.

Now I can finally start the brown belt quest.

Good luck all trying to get him.

I was raising Jeunonian fame, and was passing through La Theine to get to Selbina. "Heh," I thought to myself. "If I see a Battering Ram, I'll dismount my chocobo and whack it around." I reached (H-9) (I was taking the shortcut to Valkurm by going through the pass between the mountains and the ravine), and sure enough, Lumbering Lamberts big fuzzy behind was right next to the road! I dismounted, popped Hundred Fists, Berserk, Dodge, and Focus (nobody was around, for some reason) and wailed onto the poor sheep. He was down in about 2.7 minutes, and I was down to 66 HP from the extra damage I was taking from Berserk. I got two ram horns, a skin, and a Lumbering Horn. Now I just need to find the Rampaging Ram and I'll have two Purple Belts! (Got this one as a birthday present, will use 1 in the brown belt quest)

LOL, well im replying to my own posting. Mins after I posted this, i circled thru the area to G-10, rumored to be a expanded spawning ground to the LL. I retreated to I-9,85% probubility rams spawn there. I saw the Lumber before my eyes and took him down and had the bragging rights of the day. I also had a spectader to applaud my work. 5 hours in waiting well worth it when everyone gives up ;). MERRY CHRISTMAS FF fans ! 05

My first encounter with this little ******:

I logged on and decided to do some farming (leathercraft). So I was running through La Theine Plateau, omw to the Konchat Highlands. I ran past a group of 3 people (level 30 at the most) and they were fighting him. By the time I got there he had a little less than 3/4 of his health left and they were all at about half (I knew that they were all gonna die). So I decided to stick around and watch. This caused me to get that stupid HP down affect...it took me all the way to 190 (I had 760).
I then walked off to the side to heal myself when they called for help. I got back to about 300 health so I figured that I was ok to fight. Well...they all 2-houred which brought him to about 1/3 of his health and then they all died. So I fought for a bit and took him to a bit less than 1/4 and then he got me really low so I'm like, "ok, f*** this."
So I start running then I see this level 75 rdm who laughed at me and some little dude he was PLing who also laughed (btw, both of them are now on my blist). So I am running and make it near the zone and then he kills me. I figured that this was expected so I wasn't too angry.
What really ****** me off though was that a level 60ish whm walked up behind me right as I clicked "return to home point". And once I zoned he sent me a /tell saying, "hehe, thanks for the drop ^_^". Needless to say...I got ****** off and shut the game down.

Ugh. Finally got my purple belt quest because I had Rampaging for about 2 weeks. Being a 33RDM/RNG I figured my chances were better. I'm on the Remora so things are bit easier/tougher then most servers. Lumbering is annoying, I killed everything in the area and waited for a hour no pop off my Widescan and tried again every few minutes. Finally after about 3hrs he shows up, I run in, casted Dia and I was brought down 1/4 of my HP. Anyone about 30 shouldn't try him, he can petrify you. I had to chainspell at that level to keep up healing, stoneskin, and phalanx.

Well, I was standing around Jeuno and decided to finally get around to trying on the Purple/Brown Belt quests. I've had the Rampaging Horn for quite a while now, and so I got a Teleport-Holla to go kill Lambert. I'm a 70THF and I subbed RNG.

Ran southwest... widescan... sure enough he was there, Flee, Steal. Probably wasn't necessary because nobody was around anyway. Barrage hit for 611 with acid bolts and Slug Shot hit for 1117 or more (killed it). Time for brown belt quest now.

Took it down about 4 hours ago with my 40MNK/10RNG (for widescan). Killed 4 Battering rams (got the lanolin cube too) and it spawned about 1 hour after I began camping it.

Got the claim, used focus and dodge and then slapped on hundred fists and took down his health quickly. He used rampage halfway through which didn't cause any problems, I had a big smile on my face as I had him down to a sliver of his health left and then I saw him ready Petribreath(I'd read about it having a long effect on you and my heart sank, I didn't want to lose when I was so close) my hundred fists ran out and he used his petribreath but missed! Got two more punches in to finish him off before I could do the honours with combo.

Got the horn drop and completed the quest. Too easy.

Ok, so I was running through La Thiene Platue and I was like, "Ok, gotta get the Lumbering Lambert for the purple belt quest!" So I rolled through there on my choco to where i thought he would be, I was looking almost 15 secs and found him. Dismount'ed, and {Chi Blast}'ed it for the claim, got him down about to 2/5 life and he used great bleat, my hp went from 1022/1022 (He had never hit me, i countered everything) to 255/255. Then he started laying the poundage on me, he got 7 criticals, and I used {Raging Fists} for 605 dmg to end the fight.I had 50/255 HP. Score ended up: Faudy:1 Lumbering Lambert:0

"In Bastok Markets the other day someone was shouting the usual, "Where do I go to buy maps?" A bunch answered, "H-9" He keeps on with the spamming. Someone yells, "I told you H9!" He replies, "How can I find H9 when I dont have a ??ing map!?"

He spawned after in less than an hour of Ram farming/Lambert camping. Made 15k in the process too, and got my Lumbering Horn. Wouldn't mind if it took longer, at least Ram Horns are good money.

Ok as i post below i have spent a crap load farming him, well i was up in the 17hour mark of farming him. still no spawn, well after the update i loged in, (when i search world i was about the 500+ person to log into the new reset server.) and after about 25min. he spawn almost dead center of G-10, (so his spawn area is a lot greater than listed above on the map) so my lvl 42monk/20ranger (ranger for wide scan)took him down without loosing 150hp just bost chi blast then let loose hundred fist then into bost chi blast, boost raging fist and that was about it. then i ran over to the highland and got the other ram in 10min, after that i got two other NM that day.

I was feeling a little cocky, I just got my Purple Belt and was Ram hunting. I turned around he popped. right there, So I thought Ill try (was a 30 Monk/12 Warrior) I provoked him and slapped Dodge on instantly. I was giving him a run for his money, assuming he couldnt touch me with Dodge. I kept spamming Boost and got Focus on after Dodge. I got him down to about 1/5 of his bar, I was about 221/593, then the ****** goes and uses Grand Bleat, It took my Max HP from 593 to 177 and he started hitting me hard. I almost won, but he beat me. I long to challenge him again, and I firmly beleive if my Sub Job was devoloped, I could have killed this bad boy
