Just a quick word on spawn time.

I killed Nue with no drop, and stayed at the tower to level my NPC and collect tiger fangs, expecting a 2-4hr wait for respawn. Nue popped again after about 50-60mins. And i got the drop :)

So its worth sticking around.

Good luck all.

Just killed him as 75 THF/NIN. He dropped both black tiger fang and nue fang
1/1 on him. Took about 90 min to spawn. Didnt use SA or WS (was worried about getting claim.) It was iceday and ice weather at around 2330 game time. Waxing moon 21%.

I'm currently 0/6 on him. Not so bad comparing so others that I see. I really can't wait until I get it so I can get out of the area (i'm not leaving the area until I get it lol)

I was 1/1 with Deadly Dodo and all I was really doing was farming silver beastcoins. Ran into him and killed for fun. This was when I wasn't leveling monk.

I'm a little afraid of getting the last item, thanksfully its 100% but its getting the claim and time of death that is bugging me now.

Edit: I am 1/9. I was fortunate enough to have no one else camping him.. for almost 4 hours. I got him 3 times in a row and finally got fang on the 9th kill.

Good luck to everyone else!

I'm just an unlucky dude... true, not as unlucky as some, but I've been camping Nue more or less non-stop for a week, and I'm 0/14 on him now >.<

I went 1/5 on the dodo skin, and I got the vine in about 90 minutes of camping... this tiger is ******* me off, fast.

I've killed him on full moon, with TH1 and TH2, I've killed him on iceday, darksday, earthsday, lightsday and firesday. I've killed him on single and double ice whether & single and double dark whether...

and the thing that REALLY grinds my gears is that in the period of me camping him, about 5 people have shown up, claimed it and got the drop first time!

I really need to vent my ander here!!! Q(-.-Q)

Shouting all the way from Asura

EDIT I'm 1/15 XD so friggin happy that I dont have to go back to that stinking place for a loooooong time :)

My character: Emuh
Server: Diabolos
Main: 56 monk

I have been attempting to finish my brown belt quest (though i already have one) over the last few days and after 8+ straight hours of camping this NM I developed a theory.

1st off i can confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that the tiger that can pop as a doll is not a PH, due to the spawn time of Nue after killing each tiger/doll.

2nd: My theory developed after reading all these posts. The only people that listed a day when they got the drop, and therefore fought Nue, has been Iceday. My initial thought was that he only gave the drop on ice day. Which made sense to me given the zone he resides in. HOWEVER, after 8+ hours of camping I have only seen him pop on iceday. I would venture to guess that he only pops on iceday, and that when seen on other days it is because he popped on iceday and was not killed. I developed this course of thought a full 2 game days b4 iceday, and saw no pops until 3rd pop cycle into iceday. I wouldnt call this absolute confirmation but it certainly supports my theory.

3rd: as for things that effect the drop rate, I would say that all besides TH2 is a placebo effect. Correlation of 2 things does not prove cause and effect. a famous example of this used in psychology is the patterns of ice cream sales and polio being similar when polio was a major concern. turns out it was spreading through swimming pools which were more popular in the summer (of course the peak of ice cream sales). this DID NOT mean condition B (polio) was caused by condition A (ice cream).

So i am now only goin to try for this guy from windsday (the one b4 ice) to darksday (2 after ice). 0/2 so far as 56 mnk/28 nin. also i have no trouble killing him even with out 2hr. tho his paralyze does slow me down a bit. I will try to update as more information comes to light.


i wonder what role ice weather plays in his appearance.

ok it seems my theory is incorrect after all. i popped him at 21:00 on windsday with dark weather. i guess my luck just sucked b4. must really be a lottery. 0/3 so far. solo'd as 57mnk/nin with the following gear equipped:

weapon: TM hooks+1
Head: emp hairpin (+10 eva)
neck: spike necklace
earrings. uneqipped my spikes to preserve evasion
body: scorp harness (+10 eva)
hands: temple gloves (took off my Okote cause i wanted max evasion and af is all i had on me)
ring1: str+3
ring2: venerer. acc+3
back: night cape (eva+3)
waist: brown belt
legs: republic subligar. BTW subligar+SH {No thanks.} FUGLY!
boots: temple gaiters

i had tp at the start and hit him with it. focus + dodge. took down blinks twice the whole fight, easily got them back up. used raging fists twice, and ended the fight at 1130/1237 hp.


Edit: it might just be me, but everytime I kill Nue i get no tiger pops for around 15 minutes RL. 3x the normal pop cycle

Edit2: it has been over 30 mins since i smoked Nue and no tiger pops. i think i killed all his babies o.O

edit3: finally killed him on lightningsday, double ice weather. 1600 waxing crescent 21% moon. bringing me to 1/5. also got my vine today. GL to all this quest drove me nuts.

you got some weird theories lol and some of them even seem practical, i dont blame you for trying. i think my self there is a 24 hour drop rate. if some one got the drop right b4 you, you wont get it for another 24 hours. i seen people come and kill things and get it first time then the next few it wont drop. but the next real life day it dropped for me. so i think things just dont drop till 24 hours have passed in real life, i mean if it dropped that easily it would not be rare right? who knows maybe the drop timer is 48 hours lol just my thoughts
Sooo Easy
# Sep 04 2007 at 11:26 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, I don't know if it's just this easy or what... Soloed both NM's as 58DRK/THF...The Deadly Dodo took about 20 min. to pop from killing Taber Beaks and the Nue took about 2 hrs to pop after killing Tundra Tigers in The Glaciers area and got both the dodo skin and the nue fang on the 1st try... wOOt!! on to the Vine :P

It's now 4 hours and not once has Nue popped...

Been playing this game 4 years now, and camping this damned cat for 3 of them...I am currently 0/102 on this drop no bull. Maybe my luck is poor or SE has an agenda against me getting a brown belt >.>...both of which seem reasonable at this point. I guess all I can do is keep trying. If you're on Asura and see a hume monk crying in the corner as others parade around in their brown belts you might understand =P.

0/3 on Nue, popped in 1hr 35 mins from TOD.
1/2 on Dodo
Got Morbolger 21hrs after I helped a friend a couple days ago.

To kill time, I go into the tower and kill the Snowballs and Spiders. (14 min repop) Then I head back out for the dolls and tigers.

0/21 on Nue Fang. I have tried just about every combination I could think of. I went 0/18 with /thf and now am 0/3 with /war...so to me there is no difference in the drop rate.

I have given up on Nue at the moment and am going for Molbolger. I have a good idea of the TOD from a LS member so hpefully this will be a better experience.
Nue like Kirata maybe?

that NM is a tiger in same zone that pops in the same way and Kirata suposedly shares a pop with that doll/tiger spawn. So I am killing the dolls and the tiger(s) I'll let you know how it goes only been up here for an hour on Bismarck

So officially 0/17, 20 minutes ago...

I dread making the trip every time I think of pimping my MNK with this belt. Dodo was 1/2 and I haven't even gone for the vine yet. As I'm on the verge of murdering someone every time I don't get the drop (I've smacked my monitor a few times lol) the only joys of this camp-out I get are:

* Catching up with my LS buddies
* Selling all of the fake Nue Fangs (Black Tiger Fang)
* Taking down the tigers instantly with SA/Penta with my SAM also makes me feel warm inside, I just pretend it's Nue

I've also tried everything to get the drop. Melee only, Fist it the entire fight (sounds wrong lol), Finish it off as fast as I can, 2HR and SC light with GK, have TH2 AND TH with me, sneak up to it and attempt to wrestle it down with a pair of pliers to rip it's fang out.... Someday......... I will prevail

I keep telling myself this only to prevent a total breakdown, I'm going insane here.

*** EDIT ***

Holy crap the terror is over. 1/19 this morning, I finally did it!! All of these days of not giving up this stupid tiger has finally given the tooth I've been seeing everytime I fought him.

For those still trying to get it, camp him once a day. Don't bother staying for 4-5 hours on end, log on and tele there, kill him and leave if you don't get drop. Come back later on if you like but it seems that the "Chance to pop every next hour thing" is true.

Good luck friends and I hope you didn't have as much trouble as I did :S

Alright, for the past two weeks I've been camping this NM every day for a few hours. Basically getting claim every day and then Warp, come back hours later and camp again. First day I even spoke to someone else camping him who has been trying to get drop for a Month, however after that day I didn't see him again -- Maybe he got it, maybe not. Regardless, it was the last piece he needed.

A couple of times I even got Thief's to join me after I got claim on Nue. Treasure Hunter + 2, no drop. I was getting... frustrated. However, today, I was camping against 2 Japanese players. One decided to Warp out after he realized that Nue doesn't pop when you kill the Dolls near Pso'Xja -- He started seeking a party after that. But the JP White Mage stayed around a bit and then came pop time. Me and him ran around in circles for a few seconds but I managed to get claim first -- Even though he already checked the area, I guess I just got lucky that he missed the pop. But this time, I had a new strategy: To kill Nue as quickly as possible.

2 Ancient Magic II spells later and it was over. Everything dropped. I was estatic. Good luck to everyone else!

Other strategies I tried earlier, but didn't work/get drop: Slowly killing Nue, killing Nue with H2H, killing Nue with no spells, killing Nue with Treasure Hunter (Even though it'd work for some, didn't work for me), killing Nue on Darksday, killing Nue on Lightsday, killing Nue on Full Moon.

This thing makes me so mad! I got morbolger in about 2 hours of camping. Got the skin in about 4 hours. Then I get to the glacier. 3 kills no drop so far. But the last kill of nue was at 10:02 and its now 6:28. Almost 8 and a half hours later and nue still hasnt popped again. WTF!

Just got my drop. Nothing fancy about the day, i think it was Iceday and Waxing Crescent maybe. Had /thf and 2 of the "lucky" items. Record - 1/3. Wasnt no one there to compete with either. Was pretty excited being that the other PLD that was camping during one of the spawns that I claimed stated he was 0/17...probably not using /thf.

Went 1/1 on Deadly Dodo. Was logging for the night, was a week night and late, and decided to choco over and just see if it was up. Sure enough ran right smack into it, claimed it, killed it and drop.

Not too worried about the Vine. It is a 100% drop and, even on Asura, probably not camped that heavily being the NM is 3+ years old. But we will see. It has a small window so that is ok with it being a 24hr spawn. (unlike Argus with a 18-30hr spawn with a 12hr window... /gag)

Advice on these NMs: sub /thf for TH, grab the lucky items(cant hurt), camp during non-peak hours and just be patient and stay on your toes. I have been on an NM spree hear last few weeks going 1/1 on Leaping Lizzy, 1/1 on Valkrum Emperor, 1/1 on Deadly Dodo and 1/3 on Nue. Puts me in the 64% to 70% successful drop rate range if i did my math right.

So I was killing Nue for the fourth time, announced it on LS, and complained that I could see his dang fangs right in front of me, so why don't they drop? LS mate gave a lol, said give Nue a good punch in the face to knock em out. lol lol etc. Fang again didn't drop. But that got me thinking. Knock the fangs out, eh? A quest that rewards a mnk item, eh? So on Nue #5, superstition got the better of me, and I finished Nue off hand-to-hand (as 75brd/33thf heh). What do you know, Nue fang dropped heh. 1/5
I also, on my second Dodo fight (but 6th spotting >:o ) decided to finish her off h2h. {Dodo Skin} O

Pretty sure it is just per luck...like everything else in this great game. Read this and thought I would try it. Camped him just before going to work hoping to get lucky and Nue would pop. Was a SMN camping but looked to be afk and another pld which was not afk.

I run around killing one Tundra Tiger, watch clock and begin to run around again. Nue pops and I get claim. Other PLD just checked that area then went back to his post...felt bad but oh well. Fang didnt drop. Used sword for melee and one Vorpal Blade then finished Nue off with hand-to-hand. Had /thf(22), "lucky" items rabbit tail and 4leaf bud and it was darksday 83% Last moon or something.

I promply shouted "Nue killed - no drop" and logged to head to work...yeepee.

1/1 Deadly Dodo 0/1 Nue

Good luck everyone who camps Nue... I read the drop rate was pretty bad and I think I am gonna believe it. Almost all "so called" cirumstances to increase drop rate were met. Had atleast TH1, 2 "lucky" items and was Darksday.

Edit - February 8, 2007:

Got drop: 1/3 Iceday and Waxing Crescent I think was day and moon phase. /thf sub and 2 "lucky" items. Hope this helps.

Ok basically I wanna say this NM can suck m* ***** I have spent countless hours trying to get this drop I'm very independant and don't like asking for help much. Anyway to camp this guy I did it, over 24 hours straight getting every claim, I went 0/29 until tonight after our assault run I asked my best bro Lox THF to come and just try it for me cause the pop window was up. So we got out there and basically BAM 1/30!

I always read about people who get so **** lucky with NM's. I'm usually not that type of person. This NM was an exception.

Showed up to camp where pretty much everything have been killed by a lvl 71 blm/whm. He moved his character to the side against the wall and looked like he was afk. I killed the Tundra Tiger twice and the third spawn was Nue. Killed it and gotthe drop as 66RDM/15THF. Less than 15 minutes of camping ^^

1/7 on Nue.

Things I learned:

1. Tundra Tiger from Living Statue did not seem to influence Nue pops.

2. Nue popped exactly 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours or 4 hours from ToD right on the dot. So if you killed Nue, go afk for 55 minutes then kill a Tundra Tiger. Next pop will be Nue if it's set to pop in that hour. If no pop, wait another hour. To get ToD just leave your character in tower & filter out most of the irrelevent data. If you don't want to get ToD than just kill a tiger every hour.

3. Excessive tiger killing did not help much & just leads to frustration.

These are just my observations & worked for me so don't hold me accountable if it doesn't work for you.

Good luck everyone.

I decided to test this. So far no drop but at first this was exactly correct. Nue spawned every 1,2,3,4 hours on the tod. But the 4th kill he not only popped 20 min early but his PH after took 8 min to respawn. Dont knwo what happend but it was sure weird. Other than that weirdness this was so far correct about the ToD. I would suggest keep killing the PH every 5 min but mark that tod.

So today I attempted to fight Nue again. I brought my roommate, who is a 75THF/NIN, along with me for TH2 and assisting me on the claim. Our friend who is a 69WHM/34SMN showed up as well. I was 59MNK/29WAR. After waiting about 2 hours for Nue to pop, he finally did!

I voke-claimed him, we destroyed him, and he dropped it! FIRST TRY!
I'm guessing the TH2 helped. But yeah! First try! I went 1/1 on Dodo, too.
Next up... Morbolger.

Sub thf for this one. It's a very small pop area so wide scan is a waste. If you have other competition, the PH repop is almost exactly 5 minutes. I personally flee at the 5 minute mark and run circles around the middle structure. Don't forget it can spawn just out in the canyon too.

I had competition myself, a MNK/RNG. I'm sure he only reason I got Nue was because he couldn't back out of his map fast enough.
Retired. Wave if you see me on PSU.

In japanese folklore Nue is a chimera-like beast that brings bad luck and can turn into a black cloud. The only time I've seen it pop, personally, it was during dark weather. Anyone else notice that or think it might be possible?
Nue.. What the Crap!

First of all TH2 helps! I'd suggest getting thf 45+friend to help.

Solo as 50-55 thf depending how well you play thf ^^

sleep bolts acid bolts and bloody bolts work well and stick 100% of the time with me.

I solod as 56thf/27nin without dropping below 85%
The most annoying thing is paralyze, it hits even with shadows up and stays for a good ammount of time to a 56thf

His cyclone rips through 3 shadows so you gotta watch out for that.

He has around 2,300-2,500 HP the, PH in the area is only 1 of the 2 tigers, if you kill them enough 1 will eventually respawn as a living statue, if you kill that statue it has just a good a chance as turning into a tiger as it does back into a statue, this tiger/statue in no way effects spawn, might as well leave it alone.

The spawntime on this apears to be between 1 hour - 3 hours though i have read people saying it has taken 5 hours; i am weary of the idea that this can be.

I am also supersticious of the idea that using WS or killing gobs can in any way effect droprate OR respawn time, i was killing goblins after first pop that i lost claim to from pt of 4 higher lvls, and was killing gobs for 1 hour 30 mins getting mythril coins before nue popped again, i lost claim again. Anyways they left, i was still killing gobs, exactly 12 kills of the 1 tundra tiger in the zone and about 1hour - Nue popped again. I claimed with no competition, acid bolt, sleep bolt, sneak attack, melee for 60 seconds, sleep bolt again and sneak attack again followed by a Shadowbind WS to recast utsusemi i only lost about 90-110 hp, got drop 1/1.

This is not as diffucult as a fight as morbolger and alot easier on the eyes.

I killed morbolger with about 150+hp left after using bloody bolts, fight lasted about 10-15 mins as thf 56 because i ran out of shihei and often had to shadowbind and bloody bolt him.

i would suggest being 60+ for morbolger if you are a thf. 50+ for nue.

I would say using no weaponskill works.
The first time I used penta thrust and no drop, second time I didn't use anything and it dropped.
Although this could be luck too...

VE= 0/1 LL= 1/1 Deadly Dodo= 1/3
Nue= 1/2 Morbolger= 1/1

Woodworking=68+1 Fishing= 54+4

I camped this guy all day Wednesday and he popped 3 times. 3 to 8 hours maybe, but so far 0/15. I think that they broke this mob.

How do you go 1/13 on Morlborger??? He is a guaranteed drop once you kill him. Camped him for 12 hours straight waiting for him to spawn, beat the RMTs to him cause they showed up last minute to try and steal claim, beat him and got drop. You sure you killing Morlborger and not just the regular ones? That would explain why you went 1/13

5 minutes. Kill a tiger, wait 5 minutes for the next to show up, kill and wait.
No other mob to kill, statue or goblin or goblin tiger.

Simple. Oh I subbed thf too. I got him 2x within 2 hours. No other camper was there

Killing tigers around the tower for around 45 mins before he popped, got the drop: 1/1.

There is around a 5 min repop on the tigers meaning that you do have enough time to keep the dolls in the tower dead. I cant really comment on whether or not the tiger that shares a spawn with a doll is a PH or not, but I dont see why it wouldnt be.

Was 67thf/nin, no TH gear or food, Iceday and 10% moon.

There are ONE placeholder.
And its the tiger.
Dont waste time with the Gobs or Dolls.

Just kill Nue, afk inside the Tower for 2hours or so. Check log if anyone killed Nue. If not, then go outside, Kill the Tiger. If Nue doesnt pop, wait 30min and kill another Tiger.

Thats all you have to do.
