Lovely shield, Fugly ram...

The Shield is wonderful...
The Ram is deadly.
Isn't that how it always works?

But that aside, I have only spotted this thing twice. First time, as a black mage around level 15-16 farming sheep, I ran to the Dem and stayed my but away from it, watched three players die while two stayed on birds and stayed in my line of sight. One person managed to zone it.
Second time? Red Mage level 39 farming sheep for fun while I waited on someone, saw his name fly past my eyes on the Log and started looking for it. 75 RDM/NIN was killing it, half dead so I started curing him. That being said, a 75 RDM/NIN in good gear(he was in RDM AF- had been farming SB's 'little sister' Stray Mary so he probably wasn't prepared for it, don't know) should have no issue with it. I only caught half the fight and was too busy watching his HP bar to bother watching the log to see what it did... didn't think to check afterwards either...

Eh, this is my 2-cents worth. Hope to get some help and get the shield myself, will be very nice when I level up... (44 RDM currently).

Was camping Rampaging Ram for the purple belt quest today and SB popped. I was 75THF/31RNG for widescan. I flee'd to him and claimed, but when I went to grab my keyboard I hit my 360 remote and ejected the disk :(( Finally got back on and somehow no one had claimed him (even though there had been 1 other camper). I was already at 1/2 hp now b/c of the connection lost but re-engaged anyway. When he was able to connect, he hit hard (90-150+). Luckily I had my trusty bloody bolts and just TP'd him with those, and my high evasion skill allowed me to dodge most of his swings. Took about 15 minutes total since I was mostly trying to get my hp back up. But won, no Viking Shield drop (already have one though), but I got what I was after anyway, Rampaging Horn. GL to any campers....it's a great shield especially on my THF/war.

Its sad to say but i got spanked by this thing. Im a 75blm/37whm but i had been teleing for a while and hadn't rested for a while and had just teled someone to dem and was pretty much outa mp and i saw a bunch of people running around down on the ground so i went to see what was going on and he was on me I didnt even have enough mp left to escape so i did a nice thing and pulled him away from the low lvls that were too close. ended up geting killed hp'd came back but it was to late for me to get him a pt had gotten him. so im just waiting to see him again and we'll see who wins next time. Oh and i did go back and raise all the noobs that got killed to he took out a bunch of people lol

You and me both. Last night I decided to take a break from leveling to start working on my leathercraft, and after finishing my third synth of Sheep Leather I started to wonder why the screen was shaking and why I had just taken 352 damage in one shot. 27WAR/13MNK vs Steelfleece? Yeah, not so much...

However, I did get revenge (of a sort) by calling in the LS goonsquad for a hit. 75NIN/THF, 75 WAR/NIN and a 52WHM/(forget her sub at the time) absolutely OWNED him.

Steelfleece popped about 1.5 hours after server reset yesterday. Claimed him today, 26 hours later.
Rampaging Ram, the lesser NM ram, was the last thing to pop before Steelfleece - about 15 minutes earlier. (5 min longer than normal Ram respawn.)
I only mention this because I always thought 'Fleece was a lotto of the lesser NM. Now it seems he can pop in place of ANY ram whenever his window is due.

Was helping a BRD friend of mine farm sheepskins for money, we got bored and decided to camp VE. Start heading to Valkurm, I turn to wait for my friend to catch up, and jumping at my face is a huge ram. I panic and tell my BRD friend to run for it while I tank it and 2HR. He says "**** no." So we stay. This dude was so easy. I was missing half my gear since we'd just been farming and I was wearing town clothes. Cast Hojo, Kurayami and Jubaku. He got in about three hits before I got my shadows up. After that I didn't take a single point of damage. Thing got pwned by a 61 NIN and a 56 BRD. Awesome good time. Six level 65s... Psh.

I was online two nights again and I became bored quickly with doing tele-porting. So I Tele-ported to Dem to hunt down some Rams, when all of a sudden I see this huge one right in front of me. I see the name and immediately tell my linkshell members, Manni and Darth. They tell me to engage it while they shout for teles. I first reply with a "****, no!!!!," Then, I start wondering if I could live just long enough for my linkshell members to get here and take it. I decide to give it a try and begin resting my mp when I notice a lvl 40 nin run up and check me. They begin running in the direction of the great beast and gets one-shotted... lol After witnessing that, I buffed up with RR and all other buffs to help me live longer. I tried a Sleep spell after using my Elemental Seal. My heart began beating as I realized that my spell was resisted with ease. So second thing to do when the odds seem too tough is to Run Away!!! I tried running to my linkshell members when I noticed they got in the zone. I knew for sure that would work until I ended up somehow behind the dam thing. So this is how it feels to be "drawn in" I thought to myself. I tried running again and to no provail. I was drawn in again. I was a Whm56/blm28 at the time and SB was hiting me for 60 a hit. It does use Mighty Strikes like Provoke. I was losing hit points fast. I couldn't keep up with the healing. At some time I 2houred. At some time after that my linkshell friends showed up and tried to take the mob off me, but since I had 2hr'ed, I knew I was gonna die. Thank goodness for RR though; I came back and rested and healed my 2 linkshell members who were there taking the mob. 5 mins later we had a huge group of people watching us as we tried to take the monster down and stay alive. My members jobs were RDM69/BLM34 and MNK62/WAR31. The fight took around 20 minutes and I thought we all were gonna die when it used that HP reducing move. After using that move, we managed to kill the beast. Didn't get the drop, but got horn and a cool title, "The Hornsplitter" Everyone was so shocked that 2 DDs and a whm <me> were able to kill the HNM. My linkshell members were all pumped as they were bragging about killing it. I asked them to help me kill the Yagudo High Priest for Raise 2 scroll. They disconnected out of the blue. >< So I tried my luck in BCNM50. Tribes and Tribulations, and to my luck I picked it!!!! The dam mimic. I was so embarrassed at the end reading, Jarred was defeated by the Medium Box. >< Oh well maybe next time.

I was 71drk/1 rng camping Lambering Lumbert for my buddy, he needed it for his monk and i was controlling his character as well sine he was at work. So after getting RR I tele Holla and get to where the rams spawn. Throw up widescan and he is on it. I have not seen him or the other ever since I came from Beta so Im like man Imma try to take him even with gimped sub. Well the fight was long and I took steamed crab for ded def since drks are not natural tanks. The little info alla gives is corret. He spams might strikes like its provoke. Well got shield w/o TH.

Later that night:

Im in Konschatat farming sheep skin and occasionlly killing rams to pop RR again for another friend. Im playing on pc so names I cant see good unless i scroll over them. I see a ram wiht a long name so i naturally assume its RR. Scroll over and its steelface. Im like OMG I fought bloodtear and im going to fight steelfleece in the same day. Search area and find a level 70 whm/rdm, invite and notice whm has only 200+ mp. So while trying to heal a low level thf aggros it being noisey and getting to close to it lol. He tried to flee but died. So I took over with whm at 300+ hp and man was the fight easier a 71 drk/35 thf. Sucks with TH I dont get drop but w/o it I do. Shield sells for 800k so at least I made that today. Woot for me lol
Above level 70? A pushover.

Saw Steelfleece while chocoboing to bastok so I warped back and switched to 66RDM/33BLM. I knew I stood no chance meleeing it, so I Bound and casted Bio 2 and Poison 2, running away any time I was drawn in. Normal hits for 50, Crits for 100, Beserk added about 50 to each of those numbers. Kept up stoneskin and kited it around while binding. If bind wore too soon I would cast Gravity. I managed to take off 20% of its HP but I called my friend to come kill it. 75WAR/NIN took it down easy, basicly solo.

I killed Bloodtear today as a taru lvl 66RDM/20RNG and it was fairly easy. I'm sure you could solo this thing somewhere between 60-65 rdm.

Also this things lvl is posted incorrectly. It's lvl 55-56ish, just like Bloodtear Baldurf which is also posted incorrectly.

You would have to DoT it to death. Keep using Bind on it (Gravity won't work after a while), Bio II, and Poison II. Keep Stoneskin, Phalanx, and the occasional Blink, and Refresh. Try to save your mp so you can always make it to your next convert.

Eva gear helps a lot. I wish I had some of my party int gear on me when I fought him but meh...not completely necessary.
Good luck!

Maybe 70+ as RDM/NIN or I saw a 75RDM/WHM solo him and never got below 90% HP but he used Joyeuse and Genbus Shield... But at 61, you wont stand a chance..

I was farming rams yesterday as NIN74/RNG37 when I saw this guy on Widescan on the South Side of the Crag... I ran to it and used my chakram to claim it since I had no provoke. I assume there was no competetion that day so I was happy.
I soloed it to 7% and got my 75 Thf friend with Thief's knife and let him get kill but no drop =(
Going to camp him today and see if I get the shield.. Currently its going for about 2-2.8 on the Diabolos server which isnt bad of a drop for a 10 min kill.. He does spam Mighty Strikes alot and did its HP down once and petrify atk but I resisted both. So in the end hes pretty easy.. never hit me once and missed about 15 times in a row. w00t for 273 + 57 evasion =)

steelfleece=too weak of course iam a 75 bst but other then that i got him 3 days in a row and he always spawned 4 hrs late from last TOD so that makes him a 24-28hr spawn in my opinion. iam itching for a viking shield to use on my thf and bst...no drop yet but i will get it eventually..

I was running to Jeuno with my party (I was 19 dragoon at the time)a red mage (i forgot lvl) and a 73 black mage. So we were just ok running when all of a sudden the black mage decided to attack it :/ Boy was he wrong! He told us to run when his hp was in the yellow but the party just stayed except the red mage,white mage and me. so we were running until the 73 black mage died and down leveled then our monk died and so on.
But the only people that were alive were just me and the red mage.
So we ran and ran. when i was near the entrnace to Rolanberry Fields I thought i was safe but after i had turned around who would appear but the ugly ram. So i decided to run again! but it had to use Provoke >.> that was when it used Mighty Strikes and then after 2 hits Dead! and who was the last person standing you ask... The Red Mage of course (who in the end raised us all)

Was coming back after helping 2 18's get Magicked Skull in gusgen, and saw this Huge thing, thought Oh yeah thats the NM I gotta kill for the Belt Quest. Instant voke, cause its konschat im a 59PLD Ill be able to beat it..no nm is higher then that in konschat...Well I soon realized how WRONG I was when a) I couldnt hit it for crap and b) It Mighty Striked off the bat. So I told the 18's (Norsk and moro respectively) to RUN RUN RUN and started running, In the running Norsk got killed by it ;-;..But the blood warp put him where he wanted to go...so he wasnt to angry. I think it despawned to after that..So really sorry if anyone was actively camping it ;-;.

Oh yes, I hate this cheap shot artist with a passion, and I declair hear and now that I will, some day, take this beast down with my bare hands. I have been killed twice by this crap mongrle, and the first time all I saw was the screen start shaking, and my Warrior falling to his death. I know I have a long hard road ahead of me, but once I'm strong enough, this sheep is goin' down. Oh yes, Steelfleece, we will dance again one day, oh yes.

your pretty stupid if you think you can kill it at level 12. a level 70BLM died killing it. and just yesterday i watched a 75RDM/NIN kill it, there was about 50 people in jeuno shouting for tele-dems to come watch, a cround of people were stading on the tele platform to watch this guy kill it, while the whms droped down to heal him. I got about 10 screenshots. I noticed how he used mighty strikes about six times...and he is not a notorius monster, its an HNM, lottery from rampaging ramms, which are lottery from tremmor rams, which are lottery from mad sheep. dont count on ever seeing this guy.

ok. 1, Tremors Rams are not lottery pops from Mad Sheep, thats stray Mary but only after its respawn time has been completed. Rams pop every 10 minutes, in Konstaht or whateva its called there are 2, one nearer the exit to Valkurm and 1 in the more wester region of the Crag.

2, this HNM is variable. sometimes it can be soloed and sometimes it can't, it depends what lvl it is just like goblin Archeoligist and sometimes it will go all out on you and sometimes it will be more relaxed (varying with how many times it tries to weaken state you)

its more then likely immune to sleep but will need confirmation to say if it is or not. i myself find it ******** how mobs are allowed to use moves like that or spawn supposed "2hr" moves every 20 seconds (e.g. NM summoners being allowed to use Astral Flow an infinite amount of times and have 2 pets, 1 to attack and 1 to astral or mage class mobs having infinite mp xp)

I just solo'd him, right now, on my SMN with no slight trouble. He never hit my avatar, I was doing fair damage with my staff alone and he's a wimp I never missed a hit. Sure a Lv12 couldn't possibly dent it, but it's not a great feat to kill this pansy. I could sic Carby on it and just sit back as he has no MP drain and there's a nothing chance he'd get killed by him. He just has a lot of HP that's it. Other than that it's a big wuss.

Level 11 Red Mage vs. Huge Ram

I was playing on the hydra server for fun and I ran into this guy on my way to the dunes. I was a level 11 RDM with no subjob. I checked out Allakhazam on my computer to see what the deal was, and I figured, "eh whatever...its just my beta character."

I basically wanted to see how much he would hit a naked, level 11, taru RDM for. So I am standing pretty far away and I cast Bind on him. I was expecting a resist, but then I see the following:

"Peeweeherman's enfeebling magic skill rises 0.3 points"

It stuck! Level 11 RDM stuck a Bind on his ***!

So I start running since now this is hilarious, but then he uses "draw-in" or something like that and I instantly die. Anyway, just thought it was funny that my Bind stuck. Good luck to those fighting him, I would recommend you be at least level 12.

Just want to say, as a lvl 61 monk with capped evasion and dodge he couldn't land a hit on me. I beat him with 3 55-ish friends - two whm and a rdm who were farming grain seeds when he popped. They didn't have a whole lot to do during the fight (rdm actually skilled sword most of the time), but he does have a lot of HP and when dodge was down he'd hit me for 60-90 each, so that kept them a little bit busy.

Also (weirdly) he never used Great Bleet.

Anyway, didn't get the drop, but it was fun to kill this mini-HNM.

42BRD/31WHM on choco from dem to valkurm. See someone fighting this big ram, never seen it before. Well almost as soon as I check to see its an NM, the person fighting uses warps away, so I'm thinking "this is Konschtat Highlands, a newb zone. I'm lv42, I can take it." Hop of my bird and throw Foe Lullaby at it, resist o.O We'll maybe it was just bad luck, throw a horde lullaby as its still stampeeding towards me, RESIST! Hit me for like 200+ HOLY SH*T! Tried to run, but it did draw in, first time experiancing this, I was confused, and dead soon after.

I (nearly) solod this guy last night, as 75mnk/thf. Was in Valkrum and got word he was up, ran over and fought him. I killed him but it was a close one. His "Great Bleet" dropped my max hp from 2000 to 450 or so, and he did "Mighty Strikes" 3 times so basicaly every time he hit me it was a crit. Luckily there was a whm there who was so kind as to drop a few cure3s on me, or I would have eaten it.

last night I left xping from bibiki bay i had to tele-dem cause like usual the blms in the area wouldnt d2 me cause they are asshats so i decided to tele-dem and hoof it. As i walk off the tele pad i see some dead Elvaan wich i raise, he starts flipping out about some ram killing him so i use my widescan and i see steelfleece up so instantly i check area and see like 6-8 70+ people here so I fiured he was claimed. yet I proceed to the area wich i see him gallibanting around while people in the distance stare at it. I whip out my CourierCarrie and blindly attack this thing knowing its a HNM so I say wth might as well so I engage and this thing cannot hit my CC wich was dealing about 200- 275 per attack steelfleeces attacks only landed when he 2 hrd with Mighty Strikes wich he used 8 times (yes 8 times) all his abilities missed he did how ever land a Bleet on me wich wasnt a problem i just erase and heal myself and proceed to Rampage at will any how i end up with a horn rampaging horn and some skin. Just one more thing to add to the BST repretoir ^^ I think 2 bsts can duo simurgh or roc i'd love tp try but with RMT running rampant i dont think ill get the chance. So anyways happy hunting to all my fellow bsts ^^ always have pett food on hand just incase. took CC to about 40% used 2 zeta biscuits lots of 2 hr from this ram.

Ok there seems to be a lot of misinformation on where Steelfleece spawns. So I'm going to spill the beans (ram hunters are going to want to burn me alive for this)

There are two ram spawns in Konschtat Highlands, a northern one and a southern one. They are two seperate mobs on seperate timers. Both rams may be out at the same time. This is why that annoying lvl 65 THF/RNG always seems to know exactly where the next ram is going to pop. He really doesn't, but he knows that if he just killed one pop it won't show up for another 10 minutes so he runs his *** over to the middle of the other spawn area and waits for that one to pop. then he runs back to the first one, etc. If you are standing in the middle of the zone thinking that there is only one ram, you will loose to this guy every time.

Steelfleece will only spawn on the one that is near the Crag. He will *never* spawn on the northern ram spawn, if you go up there looking for him you are just wasting your time. I used to camp rams for a living as THF/RNG and I have never, ever seen either Rampaging Ram or Steelfleece show up anywhere except the lower spawn.

In La Theine Plateau it's the same, there are two ram spawns and Bloodtear only spawns off from one of them (again, the one nearest the crag).

Your info on LaTheine is wrong. I know of at least 3 maybe 4 spawn points for rams. I don't know if the NM rams only pop on certain ones tho.
#DragonIrons, Posted: Oct 23 2005 at 4:36 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) no you're wrong... there's 2 spawn AREAS, those two rams can pop anywhere in each one, so it might seem like more than 2 spots, but if u watch a clock, you'll know there's only two rams

Nope you are wrong. There are three spawn areas.
South, West. and North of the Mountian.
Just Dualed this NM with a 70 RNG, about a 12 Min fight. They Rnger Basically did about 10k DMG in like 2 Min.'s. I Invincibled and still didnt pull hate off him... .. . > < So he died, Reraised 2 himself, and we finished him off. If your a PLD trying to tank this without a WHM . You need Spirit Taker. He can take a few min.'s to kill and can put some DMG down IF he hits you.. I could have soloed it. Would have taken me about an hour. But overall a very easy NM. HNM I dont think so. fyi: We got him on the West part of the mountian closest to the Crag, then the next Spawn was around 29 hours later..

My ls friend has been obsessed with killing either Steelfleece or Bloodtear, and last night he got his chance. Since everyone else in the ls knows he wants to fight these two big guys, they are always on the lookout when they are in Konschtat or La Theine farming.

Anyway, a level 50ish pld is farming, and he tells the ls that Steelfleece has popped. So, me and 71 pld friend get out there (he gets there first) and start to kill it. Since he has a Dem ring, he got out there a few minutes before I did. As I'm approaching, I notice that he has used great bleat, and that my friend has lost about 900 off his max hp. He tries to hold him off with shadows (/nin) and invince while it wears off. We're "semi-duoing" it, as our 50 pld is throwing back up cures from the sidelines.

Our pld is in full evasion gear, I'm using abs-DEX, Trick Attacking weapon skills, stunning so he could get his shadows back up. After about 15 or so Mighty Strikes, he's at a sliver of health, so I end the battle with my Souleater/Guillotine, and what do you know, Rampaging Horn, a ram horn, 5 ram skins, and a Viking Shield! Sells for about 2 million on Remora. Anyway, this was the first HNM (or ex-HNM) to be taken down exclusively by our ls.
where does he spawn
# Sep 04 2005 at 4:29 AM Rating: Decent
does he spawn all over konschat or just next to crag?
Give a man a fire and he wil be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
Allright stop the world, I want off. This ride sucks.

Just a detail: Rampaging Ram does seem to be a lottery pop of the two Tremor Rams which spawn in the area, but Steelfleece Baldarich is *not* a lottery pop of the Rampaging Ram. Saw a party fighting SB this week, temp logged out to check info on Bendigeit Vran, and when i came back (about 15 minutes later) I saw RR. Just my two cents.

i like reading ur stories but dam some are too long >.> sum it up if u can.
most n00bs get killed in konschat highlands by battering ram and all the other level 25 ones so this one being 60-70 makes no difference.

Ikerius rocks! ^^
Just got my Rampaging Horn thanks to this high level thief. I had been camping/looking for help for the horn for about 10 minutes.
He took a few minutes to take down and used that max HP down move a few times along with Mughty Strikes numerous times. He was never in any trouble.
I did approximately 100 damage overall. ^^

Thank you Ikerius

Took him out as a 66thf/33nin. took a little while, hit me maybe 5 times, casted Utsumemi 21 times,
only got scared when he did something that reduced my max hp to 250hp o_o; but that only lasted a couple minutes. also used dancing edge
16 times. this guy has a lot of freakin HP.

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.)
