Very easy solo for SMN 75

I solo'd this NM once and duo'd him twice with an incredible player named Yeng. FYI summoners...use Ifrit and Spirit Taker and the fight is over in about 9 minutes as a solo fight. As a duo fight, use Carby and Spirit Taker/ Full Swing and the fight is also over in about ten minutes.

Good luck and get those horns...ez gil from rams.

I fought this NM as a 64MNK / 32WAR with the much needed help of a 75 WHM. This guy's defense is pitiful, with high attack and pretty decent speed. Used Hundred Fists just cause I felt like it, which didn't look like it even did that much damage in terms of percentage. This Ram has an insane amount of Hit Points as well. At any rate it took about 10 minutes to defeat. He also uses the Warrior's 2 hour, Mighty Strikes, quite frequently, which became a real pain in the **** when it landed. I don't know about the HP loss ability that everyone talks about, but it never used it so I can't comment on it. Anyways, I only attacked it because a person in the LS that I am in, the 75 WHM, got aggroed by it as well as kept getting drawn in when trying to run away. I hopped a chocobo from Sandy and road out to kill Bloodtear Baldurf even though I had no idea what level it was, more of an adrenaline-driven instinct. After everything was over, I didn't get the shield drop :( , but I did get the Lumbering Horn needed as 1/2 of the purple belt quest that I never did. This would be the more difficult way of receiving what I should have gotten off of Lumbering Lambert. All I have to say is that this NM may be said to be around level 56-60 or so, but he hits like a truck and has insane HP. If I was a 75MNK/NIN I probably could have soloed it with very little issues, just a little more time. Duo'ing as 64MNK/WAR with a 75 WHM is obviously very possible. Hope this helps anyone that is thinking of trying to get the shield.

Snomm of the Remora Server by the way. Nice new Title as well.

I, Knite as 75RNG/37THF was killing rams for horn to skill up BC.

I was out there for about an hour and a half,

Lumbering Lambert spawns, so i killed it...

10 minutes later, Rams respawn timer was up but Ram didn't spawn,

So after 5 minutes of looking around, Bloodtear shows up.

No drop.

solo surprise

I was hunting Lambert for purple belt quest and was not in time for the claim so I decided to hang around for the re-pop. I was there are 75mnk/37nin
and my taru legs were getting tired after 2 or 3 hours of running back and forth. I made a friend who said he has a 46bst and he came back and lent a hand with wide scan. I told him there was a possibilty Bloodtear may spawn as well. And sure enough to our luck he popped soon after. I was thinking that it would be a pushover solo fight, so I ran up to him and started punching him.
I realized reg. attks werent doing too much dmg so I started thinking I may be in for a hard time, and I was right lol. He does hit fast and ripped through my shadows a bunch of times leaving me naked with my timer on ni and ichi still counting down. I got lucky and got him down to about 25% left, but then he petrified me and I died....

But this wasnt the end. I wanted revenge. So I HPed back to Whitegate changed into SMN and tele'd myself back to Holla. Set carby on him immediately and smacked him with my staff. Carbys dmg was slow so I decided to run out of range and switch to garuda. To my surprise as soon as I finished my cast I was drawn in with garuda still a couple yards away. Luckily she found me quickly so stoneskin and blink took the dmg. A couple of pred. claws and spirit takers later I decided my MP was getting kinda low so I switched back to carby to finish him off. Getting drawn in with your avatar not nearby is a scary feeling, but me and the blue squirrel pulled through and got the horn for purple belt the hard way....no shield drop though. I had alot of fun. Thanks to Leamlan for wide scan help^^

Could a 75SAM/NIN37 solo this? I have capped evasion, 256. A merit (Don't ask, lol.) and I can get +12 skill. Everyone says his acc sucks, so it shouldn't be a problem soloing him with Ni, Ichi, and Seigan & Third Eye, right? Just asking, I hate this stupid thing and I wanna get revenge, lol.

I just got this guy, claimed after it had the "Please shut down immediately" and "We are shutting off the world servers" message and I actually was able to kill him before it shut me off, no drop w/ TH3 (again) but I came there to camp after maintenance, just had to try.

I wish I didn't have to panic so much, not because of the NM because he's a pushover, missed with every weapon skill and never hit me w/o a shadow. @75 with WS equip I was doing 860-1050 per DE and 1350+ when I triple attacked and his acc is terrible, no blind bolts, or any bolts used, although I wish I brought acid. **** maintenance.

w00t! Me and Lionheartx on Gilgamesh server just killed Bloodtear :P

He was a lvl 75 DRG/WHM so the fight wasnt really difficult at all. It seemed to be hitting him for about 80-110 per hit. As a lvl 55 BST, my rampage did about 150-200 on it.

In the end, we just got a bunch of skins and horns. No shield drop. =/ Fun fight though, we're gonna go back tomorrow and see what we can do :P

Baldurf popped yesterday @ 3hrs after server reset. Popped again today @ 26 hrs later.

Not sure if Petribreath is unique to this one, or if steelfleece does it too. I got hit with it once out of the 5 or 6 times he used it, and the petrification lasts quite some time.

Was camping Lumbering Lambert today for my horn. I had been at it killing the ph for 2 1/2 hrs when suddenly I saw Bloodtear pop. I was on RDM66/RNG20 at the time and decided to give it a go. Had people in my ls saying I was gonna die but I suprised myself and managed to pull it off.

Gravity worked for the first 20 minutes or so lol, but then it started to wear off after every single cast. Bind is the thing that was consistent. I didn't dare try to stand toe to toe with him as /rng so I just DoT'd him with Bio II and Poison II for well over an hour.

Every once in a while things would go wrong, like Phalanx - Blink - and Stoneskin would wear right as I cast Bind, and then Bind would wear off immediately ><. I was always able to run around when Bind wasn't up and everything worked out fine.

At the end of his life I converted/Cure IV'd and cast 3 Stone III's as soon as the recast was up.

I was decked out with a SH, other eva+ gear, and the rest of my AF. He misses a lot.
His hits are pretty pathetic until he 2 hours then they deal some decent damage.

Managed to get a crowd watching me which was fun ^^. Didn't get the shield but I got the horn that I wanted -_-

It was a very fun fight and in retrospect not very hard. I was able to make it through to each convert with no major problems, and in many cases had 100-200+ mp when convert recast was up and ready. It took a very very long time though. An hour+ I think. Everyone was saying "Finally!!! Good job ;)" lol. A very fun fight, and not as bad as I though it would be. Too bad I didn't get the shield for my efforts ; ;

This fat sheep popped about 15 mins after 24 hours, making it both 21-27 or 24-27.. anyways, head down there with a friend of mine, THF47/RNG22 for widescan and TH2, and me being PLD75/RDM37 (147 Enhancing magic, and no Joyeuse).
I hear my friend screaming: yes yes yes come come!
There he is, Bloodtear Baldruf, living his ram life. We engage and everything going fine, Stoneskin holding damage.. at about 90% he goes Petrobreath, thanks god resisted, 75% Great bleat turn. Resisted again (phew^^).. at 50%ish or so he goes Petrobreath again, resisted again. At this point i had about 200mp from rebuffing stoneskin and phalanx, Pro and Shell wore midfight and didn't even bothered recasting. Managed to land slow and gravity with 106 enfeebling magic lol, at about 30% Great Bleat hits me, so i'm down without stoneskin up, with 40~ mp and 319 HP. Grrrreat. I try my best to stay alive till HP down wears. It wears and leaves me at 319 HP and 10 mp. This is where fight totally changed, took out my Ruby Ring and equipped Hercules', so i had 2mp/tick refresh due to Parade Gorget not working when you're low. Changed P. Gorget with a Shield Torque, and Ice Shield with Koenig. 305 Shield Skill.
Took down the last 20% with 400 HP and the few mp i had left, tossing a cure II when i had the chance. dropped 4 skins ram horn and Lumbering Horn, no shield >.< we'll be trying this tomorrow, hopefully with a drop^^

(sorry for the long post, seemed like a nice story to me^^)

well like i heard they said its 21-24 hours from kill and in the middle of the window you'll need to keep killing rams if Lumberting Lumbert pops in the middle of the window it means there is an extention time for this hnm like that
21-Lumberting Lumbert-24 hours > extend 24-Bloodtear Buldurlf-27 hours. i think so, try that.

So i'm like ill show you all the spawn points where rams pop and first place i go to show him Bamm BB pops. We got off Chocobos and i'm like this will be tough i was 74Pld/27Thf he was 53Whm/?Thf. I told him to stand back due to the Hp Down thing he does, Thank god for erase and removing Petrify. took a bit of time but we managed to kill him last night. I like My new Title : HornSplitter . dropped everything but the Shield , But man what a fun fight.

I just knew this thing would pop when I was trying to camp Lumbering Lumbert. That sucked. However! I managed to get random help by telling them they could have the shield if it dropped as long as I got the horn.

Got my horn :) Not the orthodox way, but got it nevertheless. Lol, I already have my brown belt items, I am just finishing this one now so I can use them.

Okay so... I was in a party with my friend. I was in Al Zhabi, just talking to the linkshell.

My friend puts in LS "Bloodtear Baldurf"

My response "Warp and teleport me there."

So as we're running I had no idea if I could take this NM. I've heard so many times "this NM is not soloable."

So I use Sneak Attack, Utsu: Ichi, And attack it from behind... 350~ damage... HP bar didn't move.

But I noticed... It's accuracy was really really really really (etc.) bad, and his delay was really really really (etc.) slow. Bolts hit almost 100%. I did about 7 Dancing Edges, my friend was there for emegency, if in case, I were to lose HP and to debuff the thing. I never went to yellow HP, it hit me twice, I think. So I figured out that yes, a THF can solo this pretty darn easy. And that would mean a NIN could solo this pretty easy too, and most likely a RDM. It can't be slept. It used its 2-hour 8 times during the fight (Mighty Strikes) which didn't help it much. It's a WAR/THF, it can double attack and triple attack. Poor accuracy, poor evasion, I don't think I missed once except with some bolts (Marks not capped), poor delay, its HP is around 15,000.

But yeah, I think 5 ram skins, 1 ram horn, and a Lumbering Horn dropped. No shield.

But I learned that I can solo this thing if I see it on THF.

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 steelface 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

Ok i was chocoing to sandy for some reason on my 39 whm!!!!! I had just got 39 which is my higest job ever and i thought i was invincible. And i see some rams, jump off choco and begin to massacre like 5 rams all in 1 area because i know the skins are worth a little bit. After im done and look around for another before runnin back to sandy. And i see Bloodtear standn there. So im like sweet, the rams around here a too weak to me so this guy cant be much harder. Bind doesnt stick and im dead before i can blink. I de-lvl and my jaw drops. I home point and get back there ASAP and find him again. I sh*t my self and start inviting every 75 in the area. I got a full pt and proceeded to smash the sh*t out of it(well the DRG actualy did all the DMG, i just threw in a cure or 2). Any way i had put on quartermaster and told every one that ill sell it and split the money(and i honestly was going to). But one of the guys was a jp blm and probly didnt get the msg and hes trying to D2 me right before the death(@#%^n jp ******** Any way we get the sheild and i shat my pants. Now what do i do with it? I cant pay the AH to sell and split the money and i am to low to equip it. ATM i just bazzaring it and /shout in jeuno. Any way im so happy.

He Popped on me while I was farming Ram Skins. I was on my lvel 46THF/13RNG. I thought I was being sly and staying out of range of him. I wasnt. He started running at me, and next thing I know, he is standing on my dead body. So I Home Port, change to 75PLD/37RDM. Luckily he is still up. Blind him for claim, get Stoneskin and Phalanx up. 20 minutes and 1 Chivalry Later, hes dead. Dropped me a purdy Viking Shield. I was pleased.
Not The easiest fight, but not hard either. When SS and Phalanx dropped, his hits were between 40-70 with crits a tad over 100. He probably popped Mighty Strikes 5 times. He does have a LOT of HP though. 500 Vorpal blade and I barely saw his HP Gauge move. I wasnt hit with his HP lowering move so I dont know how it affects you. Take care all.

So I was out tonight farming ram horns for bonecrafting...I get to the pop area find a northside ram kill it, and head back down and find Bloodtear on widescan. I get get near as I dare without incurring his wrath, hes still unclaimed but I cant find anyone on able to help me, and wasnt about to try soloing it as 71Mnk/6Rng...some people show up and I watch it die.

Then I run up top for the next ram spawn and the people from the bloodtear party kill it, so I head back south and wait, then I find Lumbering Lambert on widescan...wtf I didnt know that was possible, the very next spawn! I kite it for a little while to see if my competition needed the horn, but he was afk...and I couldnt let the thing beat on me forever, so I killed it (he dissaperd a while later, hope he didnt need it I'd feel bad)

Then I go on ram farming thinking I dont have to worry about any nms for a while as Ive seen them both die...not half an hour later I see Lambert again! this time he didnt even have the decency of giving me a ram horn...

This is all torture for a friend of mine who happened to be in a party tonight and has been sitting on a rampaging horn for about two years... ah well

i saw this ram on the way back to ronfaure as 74SAM/37THF, was gonna start the selbina clay quest... anyway, i saw this NM and was thought to myself "hmmm i wonder how hard it would be to solo this thing" and before i could really think about it, it aggrod me... i tried to flee but it drew me in, so i had no choice but to fight it on my own... i was doing really well at first, normal hits for around 30-40 dmg each, criticals for 100ish... it would hit maybe 1/10 hits... i noticed that my HP was a lot lower than its was though, and i was gonna lose if it kept up... and then it 2hrd, took out like 200hp from that.... 2hrd again.. and again.. and again... i was at 114 HP and my WHM friend shows up and saves me just in time with some cure 5s... was a pretty tough fight solo, i kept TP saved for when blind from yukikaze or paralyze from kasha wore off instead of spamming ws @100TP... if you see this mob dont be too scared, the only hard thing about it is that it has a lot of HP

Saw him, sent Carbuncle at him, and critical hits were only hitting Carbuncle for ~50-60. I melee'd along side Carbuncle and just used Healing Ruby II whenever Carbuncle reached 50% health (heals about 350 HP). I can confirm his accuracy is low on a 75 job. Definitely not HNM. I also resisted all of his "Great Bleats". Got the special horn, but no shield. Feh.

Someone says that Rams spawn after a number of sheep are killed. This is wrong. There are 2 (normal) Ram spawns in both La Theine and Kon. Highlands. There is an upper and lower spawn as I called them. Each Ram can spawn independantely of the other and sometimes they will pop at nearly the exact same time and be 2 Rams up at once.

BUT, only the Ram spawn closest to the crag in each area can spawn the HNM Rams. I fought him couple of days ago on my 75 NIN and I cast Utsusemi Ni 2 times the entire fight. He can't touch a high evasion job like THF and NIN. I also believe the window on these HNM Rams is very sporadic as others have stated. I believe it is in the range of a 21-27 hour spawn after death.

I have killed A LOT of Rams in my day and I have never seen it spawn 2 days in a row in the same time frame as the day before.

# Aug 01 2006 at 2:16 PM Rating: Good
I've soloed Bloodtear about 2 or 3 times as a lv. 75 drg/whm, and for the most part his regular melee attacks are a joke (was hitting me for about 30-40 damage per hit while I was unbuffed). Once he mighty strikes though, he'll crit for about 100+ and he seems to have a built in haste whenever he activates mighty strikes cause his attack rate increases dramatically. Contrary to what the RDM below me just posted, Erase isn't a must to beat him for two reasons 1) He rarely, if ever, seems to use it in a battle, and 2) it can miss, which has been the case with me before.

If you are a drg/whm and you attempt to try this, I would recommend that you have either some mp recovery ability with you (Spirit Taker, Ethereal Earring, mp juices or ethers, etc.) because the length of the fight sometimes forces it into a "Do I have enough mp to win this thing?" issue. At about 40% of his health I usually start running a bit low on mp, so I switch over to staff and build tp for spirit taker, then just pray it lands.

I'm 1/6 on the shield (few non-solo fights included in there), but I'll tell ya, it's a rather fun fight.

I solo'd this the other day as RDM/WHM.

Someone on LS: What is Bloodtear Baldurf?
Me: Is he up?!
Someone on LS: Yes, he just killed me at <pos> in La Thiene Plateau.

I immediately switch to RDM/WHM and teleport-dem.

I go to the <pos> someone on LS said he found him at and, sure enough, he was there, two 75 BLM starring at him on chocobos, but dared not to dismount.

I buff up (Pro+Shell, stoneskin+phalanx, enthunder+icespikes, haste and barpetrify) I use the only sword I have on me, a Dissector with the latent NOT triggered (yes, yes, I know, haha) and swing at him.

About 30 seconds in, he uses Mighty Strikes. My mind is telling me stoneskin is about to break soon, and it does. So I bind him and run away to recast stoneskin.

I wait for awhile for Mighty Strikes to wears off. I move my camera and look at the 2 BLMs looking right back at me, probably hoping I fail.

I run back to BB and after another 30 seconds, he uses Mighty Strikes yet AGAIN.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

About at 85% he uses Great Bleat, and I start to panic. I quickly hit Erase and Cure IV myself, hoping my stoneskin won't break in the process (and it didn't!).

Then at 70% he uses Petribreath, and I'm hit with petrify. I stand there and pray, because that's all I could really do at the moment.
My stoneskin breaks apart, but not long after my petrify wears off, and I bind BB and run away to recast.

70%-0% BB uses a bunch of Ram Charges that do 0 dmg, and Petribreaths that miss, and another Great Bleat right after I casted a fresh stoneskin, so I didn't panic.

After 30 minutes of me binding BB and running away to recast stoneskin a 1000 times, it finally dies and I obtain a Lumbering Horn, Ram Horn, and the title 'The Hornsplitter'.

Just some tips:

1. You CANNOT solo this without Erase. Well you can if you get extremely lucky and BB doesn't use Great Bleat. Or if he does, you don't die before it wears off.

2. Bind! I bound BB everytime I got into a sticky suitation. Even when he tractors you in, you will still be out of reach!

3. DoT is your friend (in some suitations at least). Poison II and Bio II helps.

4. Pull it away from popular areas in La Thiene Plateau so you don't get a lot of spectators (it helps you consentrate on BB better :))


Whew! That was a long post. Hope it was at least an entertaining read for whoever decided to read it. Oh, and if you're wondering, 'someone in LS' HP'd before I got there :X


Is this a random Spawn of 20+ hours or is it like Tremor Rams ; if you kill enough sheep the Ram Spawns . Is it a random lottery of Ram Spawn? Just wondering

ffxi.cannotlinkto says Lottery spawn from Lumbering Lambert (which is itself a lottery spawn) around the area from G-9 to I-9 approximately every 21-24 hours.

So... um... is there two ram NM's in la thiene?

Yes, Lumbering Lambert and Bloodtear Baldurf

i got this thing once, on a comlete wim,
so i got the tod and went back 21 hours later.
the 24 hour marks passes and im liek wtf, and i soon learn its actually 24-27 hour pop.

so i think ok and wait ANOTHER 3 hours and still no pop.

i gave it another 30 mins after that but then logged feeling slightly ****** off that SE would make such a stupid time waster.

my advice to anyone wanting to camp it... i dont think it has set pop windows, i think after 24 hours of death it is possible that bloodtear may be put into a lottery.
for bloodtear to spawn lumbering lamberts lottery must come up, then blood tear is a lottery form that

all in all this nm can take many hours past its stated pop window to spawn.
this nm sucks !

I finally killed him today with help from my friend Xervis"55 whm" and Sinder"74pal" and me 63 pal.Well I had to kite him for like 5 min before the other 2 got there. I thought he was going hit me pretty hard how everyone talk about him, but that **** use might strike and only hit me for 67 damage lol. Mobs at Biki Bay hit harder then that.Then I use all my def macro Defender,Rampart, and Sentinel. I get about 721 def with all that and steamed crab for food. He does 21 critical lol. If pal wasn't such a bad DD I could of kill this **** with me and a whm that's it. I didn't even sub nin lol P.s Special Shout out to Drakin for telling me he popped. Ohh yea no shield ~_~ and I Killed him again on may 15,2006

A long time ago, when I was an innocent level 12-14 WHM with no subjob, I was running back from a good day at the Dunes to Sandoria. I was running up the hill around his spawning spot (ignorance is bliss), when all of a sudden this huge ******* spawned on top of me. Before I realized what was going on, I heard a huge grunt, and he turned quickly around to face me, with those hellish, yellow, beady eyes.

**Bloodtear Baldruff pulls Syy in!**

At this point I'm going, "HolyMotherOfGodWTFHelpMe." Then of course, within half of a second:

**Bloodtear Baldruff hits Syy for 256 points of damage.**

**Syy is defeated by Bloodtear Baldruff.**

**Syy delevels to level alskdjaslkdj.**

A level 50ish Ninja friend of mine from my LS at that time was in the area, and decided to come get revenge for me.

He got raped in 2 or 3 hits. XD

Within 10 minutes or so, there was a trail of dead bodies around that hill, left in his wake. A few nice *** WHMs were on the way to do free raises, unaware of what was going on; They died as well.

Being pure habit now, everytime I have to travel though La Thiene now, I make sure to take the long way around, avoiding that hill and area in general.

One evening a 60 RDM acquiatance of mine starts talking about this NM I know nothing about, saying its drawing her in and she's fighting it alone. So she keeps talking about it and 10 minutes later I decide to look it up. I see its a 63 NM and she's only 60 so I figured her for dead. I also noticed the nice little drop. By the time I showed up I expected her to be on the floor and him wandering around or killed by someone else.

To my amazement she was actually winning and had it at about 20ish%. She invited me to the party and her MP/HP situation was fine, we killed it off and Viking Shield actually dropped. She earned it so she sold it.

One of my personal goals in this game as RDM is to solo some tough NMs, seeing as how she managed to do it I wanted to give it a try. I read what I could about the NM, some said 21-24 hours, 24-27, 21-27. I came the night with my friend 21 hours after death and we killed every Ram that popped, it wasn't until 28 hours after last death did it pop. 75SAM/RNG & 61 RDM killed it quite easily.

Since I had ToD again about 27 hours after last death I decided to check up on it again. A 50ish THF farming told me "it just popped", showed me it so I buffed and engaged. The Max HP down move is a big problem for 60s trying to solo it. My RDM friend may have had more luck since shes a Hume, but I'm Taru, so it left me with only 180 HP till it wears off.

I managed to get it down to 80% but this HP Down thing became an issue so I warped, got another tele and got a 73 THF friend. The THF could have soloed it, this NM has horrible accuracy and HP down is often evaded by higher lvl players. No drops both times I killed it, just that first time. From the 2 times I have camped this and seen it pop its definetly somewhere in the 27-28 hour spawn range. Also never saw Lumbering Lampert once the many hours spaming widescan and camping this.

I just duoed this with 75 blm ls member. (Im a 73 rdm/nin) This thing spawned in I-9 of la theine. The fight isnt too bad i could have soloed it easy im not sure about other jobs soloing though. The NM itself is pretty easy, he has low eva and low acc. I hit for about 80-100 each hit. Fast blade usually did somewhere around 450. The blm nuked it and i tanked, mighty strikes is nothing with shadows up. This is a pretty fun fight, no shield but we got other drops.

oh yeah. popped in or around H-9.

I don't suggest taking it on if you're under 60ninja. But as said, land para, blind, slow and he's pretty easy.

He did do mighty strikes about 7 times(swear to god) so come prepared for that.

so i'm omw to valkurm to lvl my marksmanship for my 58 war. I see it, hop off, not knowing it's level and get owned. I then proceed to hop on my 68ninja and get down there.

It landed it's hp move, and b/c it was missing so much I got lazy. Hit me a couple times. Got shadows up, easy sailing.

Was nervous, but whm friend showed up. NO drop(had a 50thf join up)... was kinda upset, but glad I got revenge.
Bad luck?

21-27 hours....maybe it was just bad luck. I was there with a few LS friends because we killed it 3-4 days in a row. So we get there the last day at the 18 hour mark just to scout it out. the 24 hour mark hits and still no Bloodtear. The 30 hour mark hits and the ram is yet to be seen anywhere. Needless to say, we were not very happy with it. We don't camp this thing anymore lol.
