For anyone interested a 5th beetle will appear in either camp when Percival ph is up. I don't the exact ph for it but the group of beetles are so close together that its not really an issue.

Went out to camp this NM, Me as 56 WHM/BLM, and a friends as 75 RDM/BLM. WE used the PH method and ended up waiting the full 4 hrs for the spawn time. Ugh.

BUT I'm 1/1
without a /THF too ;o
Pretty easy

Went looking for the NM with a party of 3. One member camped J-5 while myself and the other camped L-7. Popped in L-7 after killing all beetles in J-5, THEN, popped in J-5 not even 5 minutes later. Dropped Neckchopper both times.

Was hunting this guy while farming beetle jaws. First time I found him he was on the line between K-7 and L-7, and I started the fight pretty low (350/797 hp as a 35 galka war/mnk). I had to two hour at the end to beat him. He only dropped a beetle jaw. The second time I found him was about an hour and 45 minutes from the first time (RL time) and again found him at the line between K-7 and L-7. This time I started the fight with somewhere around 560 hp and was able to beat him with about 300 hp remaining. He dropped a beetle jaw, a beetle shell, and the Neckchopper. The beetle jaw also completed my stack of jaws :D

So I am hunting this nm with a friend checking the other spot. I figure, well we can't miss him or lose a claim, theres no one else there. So he pops after an hour at the north camp, and I take him down alone. 37PLD/19WAR and my friends a 36THF/18NIN. I flash, sentinel, shield bash, do it all. No drops. Ok, try again. A half hour later, he spawns at the West camp, and we duo him in less then 2 minutes. No GA... We stayed there for 4 more hours and no pop, so as far as I'm concerned, it's a completely random pop time and the drop rate is not too fair.

Level required to defeat Panzer
# Apr 13 2007 at 8:11 AM Rating: Decent
Took my lvl 35 THF/17 MNK to the forest to kill Panzer last night. Was not sure if I was a high enough lvl to do it but I thought what the **** might as well try - I really wanted the Neckchopper to lvl WAR. OBTW, my character is Elvan and I was wearing the lvl 30 Noct gear, (Doublet, Gaiters, Beret & Brais - no Gloves). I had on a lvl 24 Tiger Stole, lvl 27 Force Belt, (2) lvl 20 Shield Earrings, a lvl 28 Wolf Mantel and a Sandy Ring. The weapon I used is a lvl 25 Windurstian Knife. Anyway, I was keeping the beetles cleared out in the two spawn points and went back to the North one after fully healing up and low and behold there was Panzer sitting on the rock outcropping soon as you come into the North spawn point. Well I had only been able to have 120 TP built up after healing and used my SA ability. I went up behind him and used my the SA but was not able to combine it with my Viperbite Weapon Skill. Still I did about 163 points of damage. I immediately used my 2hr and went and used the Shadowstitch WS. When 2hr wore off I used the MNK dodge ability and had my Flee ablitiy ready just in case I needed to escape. I was amazed at how often he missed me during the fight even after my 2hr Perfect Dodge and standard Dodge abilities wore off. I was able to get off a total of (4) Shadowstich WS during the fight and in the end I took him down!!! I had 77 HP left and was shaking in my boots at the end of the fight. That beetle has allot of HP and good defense and if I had not been an experienced player I might have lost that fight. Anyway, hope this helps anybody wanting to know what level can defeat him. It says that he is a lvl 25 - 26 NM. That's BS, I was barely able to defeat him. Also, I was able to get the Neckchopper and a Beetle Jaw - woo hoo!! Anyway, good hunting.

Not too bad

A friend and I camped percy one on each spawn killing the beetles as they pop. First time he popped was on my side and I got no drop. We camped again and it popped on my friends side this time... no drop. The third time it popped on my side again and we got the drop. So 1/3 on him, each camp took no longer than an hour and a half each.

Neckchoppers sell for about 150k on Kujata. I HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on one of these if your a WAR cause i used it until level 30!

This is my messed up story:
I'm a lvl 40 war/nin with no gil. Went to camp it to equiq new gear.
Cleared L-6 spawn point, then cleared J-5 spawn point.
Walked back to L-6 (by the weapons) and there it was! Killed it
and no drop.
Then headed back to J-5 right away cause my npc was out so
wanted to farm some beetle jaws. And there it was AGAIN!
Used mighty strikes (cause I wanted revenge!) Sturmwinded the life
out of it it dropped!! Woot, now can afford new gear.

Just lettin you know this NM is kinda craze!
It was full moon, darksday and 98% both times it died.

Yesterday I was helping a friend get his BLU spells at carpenter's and camping orctrap sorta. Well I was killing and orctrap spawns, i claim and kill, only belt, and my friend gets there, and we go to try and get him soporific and claw cyclone(which sabertooth tigers done use), but anyways, we try for a whie and no soporific and we decide to leave, meh PP spawns right around the corner. I run over there and then I see him sitting there. I throw Sneak attack up (i was WAR64/THF25) and I attack, I win, no drop. So im like meh, imma go check the north spot. heard he can spawn up there cause they are different places. Well he's not there and I kill the 4 beetles up there, and I go afk. I come back and kill the beetles 1 by 1, and there he is again. So I claim, kill, no drop. That proves that each area has its own NM spawn, and thats how i got both in 10 mins, but now im 1/3 on it ; ; also, I got Dune Widow earlier, and i got no drop, 1/6 on that now :X

Kept killing the bugs at north and south spawn points, he eventually appeared at the south.

Noticed his health wasn't going down as quickly as the other beetles =P This is as a 30Monk/War. Whipped out hundred fists, needless to say he took that like a trooper and still had quarter health, luckily berserk-boost-combo took him down =D

No drop =(

He lives up to the panzer part of his name anyways.

I've 0 for 4 the last two evenings spending under 2 hours camping him. He seems to spawn pretty quick w/ just killing the PHs. Killing the Thunder Elementals for their lightning crystals in between to spawns helps make some gil and gives you something to do.

Been camping this thing alot lately for some quick gil, 100-150k on Kujata.
He respawns every about 25-40 minutes for me, SAM75/THF37 killing PH's at both spawns, just walk between each and kill them, Panzer usually pops if im the only one there in about 20 minutes the first time, 30-40 the second time.
3/6 on him so far.

Started at the northern camp and he popped after 4 or 5 kills
in the southern camp. Sadly no Neckchopper. Dropped one of
everything else though so i'm 0/1 thus far. Better luck next time!

I decided I needed some money so I went ahead and started killing stag beetles in Jugner hoping to get him to pop. It took 30 minutes for him to finally pop. had my NPC out and Im a samurai 36/monk 18 threw on dodge, third eye'd and just hammered him with WS's took me down to 88...forgot to rest up before so I had 240ish to start with. all I got was a beetle jaw soooo 0/1 ^.^

Killed this guy tonight. I was killing Stag Beetles near the exit to Batilla Downs for experience points as a 26DRG/13WAR, he popped within about 45 min. I had eaten a meat mithkabob earlier. I had to spirit and beat him with realtively no problem. I was hitting for around 50, don't remeber what he was hitting for. He does have high defense. Sadely only dropped a beetle jaw, but gave 172 exp points. I will be back for the axe. Have fun.

LOL someone told me you need at least 40 to solo this guy LMAO

I ripped him apart ten mins ago as BLU34/NIN16, i never went below 50% hp the whole fight...bludegon for 121 a hit

on my way to go learn Mp Drainkiss i stopped by north spot 4 beetles, stayed on the choco ripped over to south spot 4 beetles!!! dismounted buffd up (shadows/metalicbody/cocoon/) see how hard panzer possibly be? the thing barley scraped me so i moved onto the next one trying to make him pop cus i didnt have WS to see the first on the list, didnt even buff up and attacked the beetle full health cus of autoregen and 75% mp... it wasn't until * Gundal starts casting Bludgeon on Panzer Percival* that I released he poped lol no buffs and i just rocked him with enough time to /wave to a 47 bst who strolled in a little late to watch me decimate him

i do have pretty decent gear tho... +27 evasion

but like i said TOTAL CAKE

o btw 24 exp and 1 beetle jaw later 0/1 :( o well im off to learn MP Drainkiss

So I killed this guy for a friend of mine. He's new on the game, an I thought I'd help him out with this axe.

Popped him in about 20 minutes of being there, just killing the beetles in both the north an the south zone.

I started killing them in the southern zone, once I killed them, I ran to the north, killed them... rinse repeat.

2nd time to the north, he was sitting there, chillen like a villian. DRK75/THF37... hit, hit, guillotine... it was dead. No drop unfourtunatley.

So I needed to lvl WAR recently as I was coming up to the point where if I level'd drk anymore with war sub'd, it'd gimp it. So I thought "why don't I get a good g. axe to use" and figured ****, I'll try grabbing Neckchopper. Being Elvaan I need the accuracy boost, and i didn't feel like shelling out the 150k it goes for on Bismarck (I didn't have 150k to begin with).

Past few nights I tried and there would always be at least five peeps in the area set on private, and at least two of them camping the NM.

I go on tonight and find only three people in the zone set to private, and only one other high enough level to take it, besides myself. Both pop sites seemed to be clear of campers.

Quick count told me the eastern pop site had the placeholder, so I go over, kill it, and wait.

There he pops and there I spam every macro at my disposal to claim him. Kill him and get Neckchopper on first try.

Prolly going to try again and nab one for a linkmate. He's nearin 20 WAR.

"WHO GIVES A FLYING *** honestly."
Apparently, Fauchevont does, and so does HibiscusMan. So do I, so does everyone who cares enough to not be too lazy to type out three whole letters as opposed to saying "u". I mean, I suppose I can understand how trying it must be to reach, I mean REALLY reach, stretch those fingers to the Y and the O. It's tough...but props to those who do.

Theres no point in typing out full words, you do realize the english language along with every other language is created by man in order to find a way to communicate right? Well you also do realize man has communicated without the use of words for hundreds of thousands of years (maybe millions i like to think we have always been), if you cant use simple context clues how in the **** did you play all those FF series? I mean **** if you have to crack someone because they like to use modern day slang and or abbr. then so be it i can guarantee you use slang that does not exist in our language but you still use it without realizing it you two are the kind of people i would love to beat the **** out of among all the others who disresepct those who find other ways of typing due to the extensive abuse it does to the wrist/hands/fingers, but wait your probably so incompetent that you forgot some people are older then others (even young for the matter) that have arthritis or have carpotunnel syndrome, unfortunately i am one of those people thus sometimes we cant type out all the words when our wrist/hands/fingers go numb its near impossible to type, so please if you ever meat me in real life say to me "Im that ******* thats put that post on alla" and honestly if you cant use "context clues" (yes its that word again cant you see where im getting at yet? you should really consider going back to at least 2nd grade or at least 3rd and the comment on the "***" for allas sake i would rather not spell out the "profane" words for younger people yes its obvious what the word is suppose to be but nontheless it is not the word itself ;) Anyways Be safe go to school and listen to your teachers for once.
Panzer Percival condensed

Most of this is old news, condensed into one post. There are some things I've not seen however, and which knowing would be very beneficial to all.

As shown on the map, there are two spawn points for Panzer Percival.

North Camp @ J-5
South Camp @ L-7, East of Spore Hollow. (inaccessible from the North)

There are always 4 Beetle spawns at the north camp, and 3 Beetle spawns at the south end. If you are using widescan, you will see these Beetles grouped together at or near the end of the list.

However, there is an 8th Beetle which can appear at either camp. This is the placeholder for Panzer Percival, and will always be the first Beetle listed of that group.

Example 1: 
@ North Camp		@ South Camp 
Beetle			Beetle <-- Placeholder 
Beetle			Beetle 
Beetle			Beetle 
Beetle			Beetle 
Example 2: 
Beetle <- Placeholder	Beetle 
Beetle			Beetle 
Beetle			Beetle 

The Beetles respawn @ 5 minutes after death. Using this information, you can kill just the placeholder, note time of death, and wait to see if the placeholder reappears in the same area 5 minutes later. If not, then you'll know it must be at the opposite camp. This will make it much easier on lower level characters, and those camping this solo.

I'm not 100% sure on spawn times for Percival himself. Expect anywhere from 1-4 hrs in between pops, and perhaps even longer.

When Panzer Percival does show up, his name will appear at the BOTTOM of the group of Beetles rather than the top, as the placeholder does.

***Now, having seen it with my own eyes, I can tell you that Percival CAN spawn twice in a row! It did this to me, spawned 13 minutes after previous one, at the opposite camp, with no placeholders in between. If you've just killed Percival and see no sign of the placeholder at either camp, don't give up!

Hope this helps, and Happy Camping!

1/2 on him

only took like 2 hours, just run back and forth between the spawns and you should get him around every hour. Not to many people camping um, only saw 2 people the hole time, looked like they were just killing time before ballista too. Just keep at it and you'll get it ^^ GL

I've been wanting to get my hands on the Neckchopper, so I went out with some folks from my LS to hunt Percival. There were 3 of us, so we split up. 2 in the northern spot and 1 in the eastern spot. After several hours of pounding away at Stag Beetles and Boggarts we had to disband. No Percy. Does anyone have anymore info about spawn times? Pure lottery pop? Or particular times?
Thar's a krakken in the riggin'!

Yay! Fascism! Elvaan and proud!

Ok heres How I think he POPS:
He appears to a NM that has to be camped by yourself, no buddies killing stuff at the other spawn, that means. You have to run between the 2 camps killing all the beetles in the area then run back to the other camp and kill all the beetles there. Me and 3 friends were camping him last night, no pop for 3+ hrs, then I did this and he poped twice in 30 min. I was a 55RDM/24NIN when I fought him, he was no prob, but has a good amount of HP and DEF.

You CAN be in a party. I camped this guy in a party with my girlfriend. We camped it and killed it 6 times. 1/6 on the drop with Treasure Hunter 1. The spawn time was about 1.5 hours and then lottery. He can spawn at any spawn point in the two areas.

Someone mentioned something about a certain number of beetles being killed in a certain order. I believe thats the case cause he pops when you kill the last beetle at either camp he pops right in front of you
I hope this helps
twice in 20min

Man this thing made me so mad. Camped him for 6 hours and no spawns. Wasted my day gettin 3 stacks of insect wings, 8 shells and 1 stack of jaws. If u decied to try this guy bring a partner. Its better to split the cash instead of loosin him to the closest rng or thf just walkin through the area. >.<

Ok, so i hunted panzer a couple of months ago for the first time. after runnin back and forth b/t the 2 area for about 90 min, he spawned. i got the neckcutter. so about a week later i decide to go after him again. i got him 3 more times with no drop. no big deal. so a couple of weeks ago i decided to try my luck again. after 4 hours no spawn, got bored. next day the same thing happened. total of 3 times now that i haven't seen him pop. i just wanna know if i'm having extrememly bad luck, bad timing(other pc's run by and see him while i'm at the other spawn point), or i missed his name on a past update.

i have also noticed this with Bu'Ghi Howlblade in Palborough Mines.

i like hunting nm's for sport, so i usually try to hunt ones that are usually rarely camped and free of gs's. anybody else have any trouble with panzer lately?

J-5 holds up to 5 beetles, while L-7 holds 4, however; 1 is a swapping mob that changes spots at random, keep this in mind when camping this NM. Therefore, if you find 3 beetles in the L-7 spot, there will be 5 in the J-5, and 4 in J-5 if there are 4 at L-7. I campd this for 2 hours and never saw it once, keeping a tight leash on both spawn points...I'm just very unlucky. Had VE pop next to me today but lost it to one of those handy-dandy voker-bots that constantly plague the game. Those people should be weary of others hacking there systems and sending them little gifts in the for of virulent files...
