thought i would try my luck with this guy
well apparently my luck is no good because i am 0/5 on spook for mantle
and now 0/1 for slacks with him. I am a 29Brd/Whm and it was a very close fight to say the least.
Extra gil?

i started out camping spook for my evil plan to camp for 2 days and have my friend come to take them and put them on AH so far im 2/11 and the price would raise since we selling for 40k instead of 30 and we only ones who are gettin em ;) and then i decided between 4-20 what if i camped crypt ghost and did the same thing and since he is around an hour repop this works perfect but for the first 3 huors i didn't know the bats where his PH xD so i went back to this forum read the post killed the bats waited 5 min pop killed him got slakcs 1/1 hopefully soon to be more =D and hopefully mu evil plan or price raising because of demand will work

also camping those **** jelly things 0/5

ok i´m in KRT to camp Spook, between 4 and 20 im goin to check if crypt shost spawns..

..i´ve to say its a good NM for the time between 4 and 20:00 causee there are skeletons around which drop bone chips, and they are very usefull for animal glue which you can craft even if ur not THE alchemist hehe..

..and the pop area is veeery small, it´s only the room with the tomb bats in it so chill there after 4:00 ;)

have fun!
1/4 and Spawn Rate info
# Nov 17 2006 at 2:05 PM Rating: Decent
Hey just thought id give you all some Info.

I decided to camp this guy while farming bat wings in the tomb and this is some basic info. This guy pop roughly every hour and the 3 tomb bats in the room in G-8 act as the Place Holders for this guy. You only need to kill one of the bats and watch out they do Link and Aggro'd me often when healing after the fight (like the Skeletons outside aswell)But after you have killed a Bat he pops roughly after 5 mins. Anyway i am 1/4 for this guy on Slacks. Defiantly less camped than Spook as people tend not to bother with him.

hope this helps you guys. See ya Around!

The Martial Slacks are quite rewarding... EXCEPT! I have never gotten this drop... I can think of at LEAST 15 times I've killed it, never owned a pair of Martial Slacks, I strongly advise against camping without Treasure Hunter, cause this droprate is some serious bogus ;_;.

i was bored one day so i went to camp this as 36mnk/17thf and beat it silly all day long. I built up TP on the tomb bats and when CG spawns i run up to it and got boost SA ad combo it and always deal about 350-400 damage...and i got the slacks 4 times out of 10 and selling them for about 100-120k on pheonix server.

Edit>
came back to try again today and the treasure chest is in there too but I didn't have a key which sucked so I hoped to get nm and have him drop it BUT NOOO instead some rdm comes campen after I killd the 3 place holder bats 2 times but then the 5th round of bats I think he got a key at same time as me so I RUUUUUNNN to that chest and pop it open for a pair of Battle Gloves then next round 2 bats spawn and the ghost so I actualy voked that kill it and get the slacks...not a bad way ta start a weekend n_n

After 2 or 3 AoE-Nuke´s all mobs were dead. When i checked the log window, i saw CG was 1 of the first that died. LOL, NM hmm?

its not a true breed NM.
both Goblin Gruel and Crypt Ghost are regular mobs with special drops.
they are placed in this category only because of those drops.
true NMs will always con as "Impossible to gauge"
i dont remember what Spook falls under tho.

i camped this one out of curiousity after hearing the controversy in the posts. Now, NM will read Impossible to Gauge the first time you fight it. Then anytime after killing the same NM it will read its true form to you too weak, ep , t...ect. I camped him for about 20 mins, killed 3 rounds of placeholders and when he popped I checked him and it read too weak (56smn). But **** i'm 1/1 now and THIS ISNT A NM! lol take care and good luck to anybody that goes for em. Taxman

Right, 3 bats are place holders for Ghost.

ToD is 1 hours, and Bat are 8 min.

if u kill the 3 bat, 59 min after u kill ghost, u need kill back the 3 bat 8 min after. Most of ppl miss him bc they kill bat too fast, and when they see he not poping, they start runnin to Spook rofl. [thanks let me have Ghost] ^^

Well sometime he not spawning after 1 hours, but that rare.

** Note when i say 1 hours i mean 1 hours + 8~16 min :)

GL with Ghost.

Ok now that I am done with this little guy I'll spill some info on him.

The 3 bats are place holders for this mob. He spawns roughly every 1 to 1.5 hrs.

The 3 bats spawn every 4 to 6 mins.

If no one has killed a bat in the last hour or so, you need to kill all the bats in the area and then wait 4 to 6 mins for the respawn. Sometimes you have to kill the bats twice.

I'm 1 for 23 on him. The drop rate kind of sucks, but the slacks are cool. While you are in between bat respawn times you can run over and see if Goblin Gruel has spawned and still have time to make it back. Also you can get bat wings and flint stones in this area and raise you Sandy fame. Kind of a win win.

Edit: I'm now 2 for 24. I was farming bats and worms to raise my mule fame and he was waiting on me this morning. Anyone need a pair of slacks?

I'm no FFXI buff. I have no job at 75 and no craft skill at 100. But, I did have a looksee on PO to see what THEY defined a notorious monster as, and this is what they said:

QUESTION: What is a "Notorious Monster?"

ANSWER: "Notorious Monsters" are particularly powerful monsters that can be found in various places in Vana'diel. You would be well advised to form a party before attempting to defeat such enemies.


That is the Play Online definition. So, basically that's what I'll go by. And who really cares if it's a NM or not? Everyone kills them for the drops anyway, so whatever, right? Mayve for the Level 0-0 ones it's for personal glory, but no one's gonna puff out their chest and say "I killed Spiny Spini and Spook" It's just not a great accomplishment. Not even getting the DROP is cause that's just chance, right?

So, cool your jets, stop being stupid and arguing over whether something is a NM or not when allllll you want is a few thousand gil, okay? Okay. Glad we had his conversation.

EDIT My Picture didn't come out right :( if everything lined up right the X should follow a straight line down in the middle of the room

Well, I have to say that I never con'd this mob in the 20 or more times that I've killed it so I agree with the people that have and say that its not an NM. However, it's my favorite mob to camp NM or Not. Killed it alot drops about 25% of the time for me but I've never killed it more than 7 times in a row before so could be less. Twice was pure luck when I've logged in it was waiting for me and dropped both times. I think everone agrees that this guy pops every hour, usually at night and that the bats are a placeholder. that being the case.

Here is my technique on claiming this mob

1)

I love to stand in the dead center of the pillers furthest to the back. Actually if I had to explain it better, Looking at the lines on the stone floor I stand right behide the horizontal line and right on top of the vertical line between the last set of pillars. Getting Creative now:

----------- -----------

X - Where I like to stand

Anywho, if you do it just right you can see the spawn behind you and since I've gotten shawdow bind I haven't missed the claim except for maybe once to a someone else that had shadowbind but mind you thats not a challenge to any good campers just a mental note.

2)

If there is a BLM Spamming the room or someone that is requesting that you let all the bats die at the same time, ignore em. there are 2 schools of thought here:

- All Spawn at once

if there is a high lvl mage with area affect you could be **** urself at 40 I was able to Barriage this thing = 1 hit wonder, I'd imaging some higher lvl mages have the same ability with an area effect. Fact of the matter is that if they spawn close together a area ws may be able to claim and kill this thing in one hit.

- Stair Steps Spawns

a Personal fav, no one knows if its the 2nd or 3rd spawn, could be the 1st but I've don't recall ever seeing him spawn 1st in a set. he prolly does thought. I find Shawdowbind works great here because if someone is using magic to claim you beat there cast time with most claiming abilties.

- Spaced Stair Step Spawns

Not a huge fan but like the previous its do'able. I think that the drawback here is that everone is ready to claim the next pop.

And Finally, my biggest secret to success,
NEVER CLAIM A BAT UNTIL YOU SEE ALL 3 AND NO GHOST!!!!!


Happy Hunting
