Just wanted to post up my results with this guy. I helped a friend kill him when he killed the bird for my SAM AF. When he popped, he seemed tough to me at the time, as I was but a 55SAM/THF.

Was back in LoO to level up NPC and farm. He was chilling and no one camping. LS didn't need so I decided to try. I was 67SAM/THF so I pulled to not link, but he decided to Tornado me, wich did well over 1100 dmg. Followed by Flood, wich killed me. I should have attacked again to inerrupt Tornado, key mistake.

HP'd, came back and was stupid easy this time. I 2-HR'd to reset timer and SC's took him to ~10% when he decided to MF. Few hits later and he was dead. Moldy earing 2/2.

Kept farming, just before he was due to pop again someone came in to camp so i helped him as I had earing and ThunderIV already, popped, killed, earing. 3/3.

Killed once more the following day and didn't get earing but did get a very large gil drop (9K+ IIRC).

Total? 3/4 on earing alone. Great to camp, and I've found him up more often than not farming down there.

I'd reccomend camping with THF and ~100% full moon.

It's too bad I don't have a use for this! But will save it for "just in case".

Seriously, this guy is so easy to kill it's not funny.

75DRG, WHM sub incase i get in trouble.

I arrived around 5 minutes before he was due to spawn, a RDM came in shortly after, then i left my PC for a few minutes. Came back to find the 75RDM having some trouble with him, but only because he was being whacked by three other Gobs too.

I asked if he was just after the spells (since he had the earring on) but it turned out he was getting it for a friend who ran in a few seconds later. Fine, i cheered him on and killed one of the adds. I missed the claim fair and square, no point in whining. His friend got it so congrats!

Still, i now knew ToD so i asked my Kin the respawn on him, and found out its 2 hours and a half. Checked the time, logged back in two hours later.

Pottered around half and hour and Pop! Saw him casting Blaze Spikes in my log; so i went and smacked him. No other claimers around. No adds linked and i dragged him to the wall. I whacked him around 5 times, and used Penta-Thrust, and he was more or less dead. He had done a grand-total of 400 or so damage to my 1200hp pool. Unfortunatly, Thundaga III but no earring.

At this point two DRG/THF farming Cocatraces came running by and we talked a bit. I logged in nd out for the next two hours and a half, and finally started keeping a proper eye out in the last 15 minutes.

The two DRG/THFs asked to join me, so they could Mug him. I felt a tad worried, i mean sure TH2 increaed my chances, but if they both Lotted on the earring then i had a good chance of not getting it even if it dropped.

Still, love your brother as you love yourself.

They invited me, he popped, they mugged him and WHAM! I got my Earring, and they also let me have the Scroll of Thunder III too.

So, today i came away with Thunder III, Thundaga III, a Moldavite Earring and around 8000gil.

Thanks again guys!

Still, to all other DRGs. Go /THF to fight him, honestly, he is so easy for a strong Melee it's silly. My gear isnt even that good, its budget gear.

I am 1/4. today camped with 70PLD/15THF and 75RDM/NIN. lost the first claim but got it the second time. There were 2 sometimes 3 other campers. Later that night the 70PLD was just farming meat there and saw Mysticmaker popped again but no one claimed it until 30 mins later. So it's not very hard to get the claim. and i really dont think moon phase affects the drop rate. it was new moon 10% when i got the drop. good luck all.

I don't even have a use for it.

I was alone in onzozo killing cockatrices and he popped. Didn't even know he was up until he started casting buffs and it showed up in my log. So i killed him. Got the drop.

Maybe now i'll have to lvl blm or something. :/

i'm personaly 0/4on this Nm the problem is that this drop rate is close to 25% or a bit higher so if you camp it 4 times consecitivly there is NO was you cant get drop unless somethings wrong with you O.o
Finally got the drop

So I log into FFXI and see a message Mysticmaker ToD, I teleport over to Mea and enter Labyrinth of Onzozo as 75 BST. Competition, everyone took a spot, I was spinning around targeting because he was sure to pop in a few minutes and my luck he does right in front of me, I hit the wrong key and entered first-person mode and I couldnt spin fast enough un-first-person to claim (about 20 seconds have passed too). Lost claim and he drops the earring. So mark ToD level up my NIN a bit, eat dinner come back 4+ hours later, as I enter he is killed. I join an old friend we begin to kill toramas, Ose is on the most-wanted list today. We kill hundreds of torama (I think PETA is after us now) trying to pop Ose, Helion was up killed and Tarutaru got Scythe. LoO PH was killed constantly nothting. Good-ole Skullnix pops stingy Goblin too, he drops the Kard - I make room in inventory as I do, Kard drops right on in perfecting, WOOT! Got me a Kard (bastards SE for not allowing BST to use). Back to Toramas, I use one as pet claim Mysticmaker, Mysticmaker vs Torama - oh man what a joke, Torama got link and still killed Mysticmaker however being a BST people like to steal NMs and there was one person watching because Mysticmaker turned yellow 2 times before I engaged then he turned yellow 2 times and I had him auto-targeted very weird. A player drew weapons out to steal the NM from me but I quickly casted Dia and he stayed Red for the last 5% of life in him, no drop 0/1. So back to toramas, Ose did not want to pop we killed them all several times. 2AM came I run to Mysticmaker, Torama pet uncharms paralyze from **** I die as I remove it :( but SMN friend gets there raises me and soon as I cure myself to full health guess who pops. We claim, kill, and drop :) 1/2 on Mysticmaker, But no LoO or Ose but a good night for me I got the earring I really need.

I was in Onzozo last night just looking for the map, and this guy popped right in front of me. Engaged and killed, and got the drop, 1/1.

There were no other campers - if there had been a BLM there I'd have let them have it. Since I now have this item and 4/5 Goliard from Nyzul Isle, I guess I'd better level BLM or SCH. :)

Finally got the earring to drop today, after two missed claims and three claims without drop. Unfortunately, I don't have a job high enough to solo this fellow (57 BLM being my highest job), so I had to rely on the others in my LS to help me out. It got to the point where I was asking other campers if I could have the earring (thinking perhaps they were only after scrolls!)

All in all, I suppose a 1 out of 4 drop rate isn't horrible, though the waiting period between spawns can be pretty bad. It took my LS and I all day today to finally get him to drop the earring.

Special thanks to Kimber, Wisper, Thepreube, Flarera, and Curve on Ramuh. You guys rock!

Seriously, I've been camping this NM for a whole 3 days now, I'm 13/16 on claim as RDM75/DRK37, and 0/13 on drop. It's getting a bit ridiculous. Thankfully I still haven't died against him, but I have watched several others die, and immediately stolen claim...as horrible as a person that may make me :).

75drk/sam 1/1 on earring. There was a 60+ rdm/thf there that was farming and offered his TH for the drop. Thunder III dropped too. Went to class and came back 4hrs later. He poped infront of a thf and whm camping him. My stun failed, due to him moving out of range and the thf wasnt even engaging him. Just kinda running by him and acting stupid. Got claim and Thundaga III dropped. Sells more at NPC than AH. 8k at NPC. Wanted this earring for my Cor's Quick Draw setup. But my drk now has +15 magic atk bonus.

Overall, he is too weak. Hit him with 1 guilitione (sp) and he used manafront.

Good luck.

1/12! Got the drop about 15 minutes ago!

Full Moon 98%
Windsday 18:--

I had claimed the previous pop at 100% Full Moon, and got nothing. I was starting to think this thing was going to jerk me around, since I'm the only person I know that had gone for more than 6 with no drop.

Seems to be moderately camped on weeknights/weekends, but during the weekdays I only had competition once or twice. 1/5, he wasn't too much of a Bastardblix really. Somewhat annoying to camp as a 65 RDM since the gobs that spawn near him can spawn in aggro range or just below it, but either way they can still link when you claim him. You can try and clear them out, but a) you'd have to do this regularly as people will figure it out if you only do it when he's about to spawn, and b) he has a half-hour window while they are a 15-minute respawn, and fighting them while he could be spawning is a nice way to give your competition the claim.
The word "job" has never been more apt.

2/2 on this Gobbie. (Since I restarted playing in 06. Won't talk about my failures back in the day in 04. :P)

1st drop was sheer luck a few months ago. Me (RDM) 70 something Coralee, my GF, (PLD) 50 something and Ryoohk (BLM) 75. We had an afternoon of time to kill so we headed down to LoO and figured we'd camp ze ol' gobbbie. Low and behold ran into the room where it spawns and Mysticmaker is just standing there picking its nose. PLD 'voked, BLM -ga 3'd it do death, I think I cured the PLD maybe once or twice due to Manafont + Burst. Dropped Earring some gil and assorted Thunder spells. Score me a Moldy earring!

2nd drop was this past Sunday. Headed down to LoO out of sheer boredom to kill Chest key mobs to pop a chest for map. Just two folks running laps farming cockatrices, no one camping Gobbie. Coralee (PLD now 75) and Me (RDM 75) camped it for maybe 1.5-2.25 hours until Mystic popped. Coralee 300% Spirits Within'd the NM and was massively resisted, she pretty much just meleed it down to 30-40% left at which point I Chainspelled Bliz. 3'd it down for fun. :P It didn't 2 hour this time. NM dropped Moldy earring for Cora's now 22 BLM, Thundaga 3, Gobbie mask, armor and 3000g!

Good luck to all those camping the NM! The NM does not have a place holder, it spawns independently of the 3 other Gobbies in the room, so you can actually just stand there and not kill a thing and it will pop between 1.5-2.5hrs after its last ToD.

Camped this thing nearly all day, yesterday. Claimed 5 times, and not once did I get the drop. Only twice did we lose the claim to someone else.

One of those two times, it spawned right in front of me (practically on top of me)... "mysteriously" purple. The thing hadn't even been up long enough for a Dia or any other form of claim to be placed upon it. I targeted it as soon as it spawned and hit "Dia", and got all excited until I realized "Hey...!! PURPLE, WTF!?!?" And I wasn't the only one that saw it pre-claimed. Adding a lovely touch, the taru ****** that claimed it was cheering because he got the drop.

So, I currently stand at 0/6 on that.

I can understand SE not making things 100%, but if it's r/e... com'on! It's not like GS and gil mongers are going to camp it around the clock... they can't sell it!

An LS mate is still 0/30+ on O-Kote.... This is just cruel.

Claimed him last night as 65Drk/29whm thinking the magic defense bonus and shell would help. got him down to 27% roughly 1134hp left (Assuming wiki is correct that he has 4200hp total) my Guillotine with LR did 1252 and I was at 97%tp ;.; he one shoted me with Freeze for 914 anyways that was my experence going to try and get some more MDB gear and try again tonight. i am still feeling stupid for not putting up Barblizzara when it started casting freeze >.<;

Edit: Tryed again tonight and soloed him at 65drk/30sam and got the Drop!

Nin69/Thf27, sitting there, calculating the time via killing the other goblins in the room. A whm has been chillin' there for the whole day, doing nothing. 20 minutes before the 2hr mark, this pld and thf come and join in and then I see the whm move. I'm pretty certain he's gonna pop. I'm on a computer which makes this soooo much easier. I pretype /ma "Kurayami: Ni" <t> so I can target, space, and enter.

I get so lucky 'cause the son of a ***** pops RIGHT in front of me.

Now remind you, I'm only 69 so, as I grab him, I get a link from one of his friends who con's EP to me.

Of course, none of the fellow campers sends me a cure, a protect, or for that matter, gets the link off of me. I blind the other Gob so he won't hit me as much. The worst spell I got hit for was 79 dmg by a Drain. I was able to have a shadow up during Stone III. I got slept once but, two aggros, woke up **** fast.
Anyway, it's lookin' pretty bad but then I Blade:Jin for 584 to send him down to 4% life. I'm in the red at 240. I hit, takes away 3%. Hit again, kills him.

You find Goblin Armor
You find Goblin Mask
You find Scroll of Thunder III
You find Moldavite Earring!!!!!!! 1/1 ********** So Lucky

My 1st post……………!

Well I just wanted to tell every one my experience with this NM.
I solo it RDM70/NIN20. Yeah I know I sucks my NIN is 20. Then a second time I Solo it at RDM/BLM35. This NM is not that hard but it was much fun fighting it the second time. So here is how it went. I camp it the second time for about 3 hours till it finally pop. Two level 75’s clear the entire room so I was happy but about 2 minute before it the NM pop everything pop. WOW the room was full again. The finally it pop and I end up getting 2 links. I was doing so good just sleeping them till I finish with this NM. He went down easy but I ran out of MP and I ran out and finally was getting my **** kick. Finally I was able to raise 100 MP’s and I warp out. But I got my price I got Moldavite Earring.
Got drop!

Just solo'ed him as rdm64/blm32! And got the earring first try :D

Elemental seal + silence doesn't seem to work, Paralyze and Ice spikes do, however!
He will rip through stoneskin easily, just reapply asap and you'll be fine. I even survived a link. A goblin Bouncer decided to come help his buddy with still 3/4 of his HP left.

Anyway, to everyone who's doubting, any rdm 64+ can solo this guy quite easily :)

Well I was being bored one day wondering what else I should do, then I thought 'I wonder what this camp looks like' and since I still wanted the earing for my rdm I headed on over there as nin/whm (teleport-mea ftw). I start camping him, just basically standing there waiting for the pop since I had no idea when he spawned last. I was evetnually joined by a thf/nin and a rdm/nin both 75. After maybe an hour and a half of sitting there he spawns behind the thf, I run over and get a Dia onto him before anyone even notices he spawned.. Now comes the fun part.

He spawned amongst other gobs which agrod instantly, one a warrior class the other a rng and we all know how much fun rng is when it comes to shadows. So while I am fighting this guy I have a rng taking a shadow every shot and one other gob who was thankfuly as accurate as a doorknob once debuffed down. So once I cycle through all my debuffs on each mob I get to hard work on the NM. He is going down pretty fast due to having very little defense and being lower level. He then gets very annoying, he pops his manafont and I guess just because he can he starts spamming sleepga and sleepga II he only did 2 -aga spells and 2 attempts at AM (tornado both times) the rest were single target spells and easily mitigated. However with the sleepgas and the other mobs on me a few did get through. a DS+Cure III was all I needed (/whm wasnt needed since I had a bag full of hi-pots but why spend gil when you can use mp? :) ) So I kill him and get the drop! So my record now is 1/3 he also droppped a scroll of thundaga III. So definately one **** of a way to start the day.

The rest of the day included:
Miser Murphy
Antican Prefaectus (no drop)
tactics pearl quest and getting 3 levels on my npc in one day, woot!
Wuur the Sandcomber (no drop, detour on the way to norg for leviathan turn-in lol)

Vandel of Kujata. 75 War/Nin. This is my story....

I have been camping this guy off and on for about a week during my downtime. Let me start out by saying that I am amazed at how many people still camp this NM! Even RMT were camping it on some days (not sure why unless people were paying them or they needed it for their army of /anon tarutaru BLM's. There were normally 2-5 people camping this guy at any given time.

I logged in this morning hoping that I would get lucky after a dissapointing dropless claim the night before. I was rushing to get ready for work, brushing my teeth, had my bath water running and had breakfast in the toaster. To my SURPRISE there were about 25 people camping this guy (all in the same Japanese LS)! I thought there was no way I would be able to get the claim if he did pop so I just went on with my regular business.

I finished with my bath and was all ready for work when I sat down at my computer to eat my toast. BAM! He pops! I quickly hit F8 then provoke, he turns red! Out of a sea of people..... He's mine!

This is where things get interesting. I normally have no problem with this guy.... but today I did. I start hacking away at him and out of no-where comes another goblin quickly taking out my shadows. I quickly use Mighty Strikes and proceed to rampage when Mysticmaker somehow manages to sleep me while my shadows were down. By this time he had used Manafont and started casting Freeze.

This is what ****** me off, the goblin who managed to take out my shadows now can't seem to land a single hit to wake me from my slumber. Next thing you know.... FREEZE!

By this time my Mighty Strikes had worn off. I quickly get my shadows back up and Rampage. He uses another ~aga spell. I use Ichi and pray that I kill him before he and the other gob take out my last 3 precious shadows.

Somehow, whether it be luck, skill or whatever I kill Mysticmaker Profblix and the link all while being IN THE RED! I now have a pretty green earring as a momento, reminding me to never give up!

I would just like to thank all the people who witnessed this event. If it weren't for you guys not sending me a single cure or helping with the add, I would not be telling this story today. /cheers

I conned my boyfriend into helping me with this tonight (and got drop--1/1!!) and I'm very glad he came with.

We (me --> RDM70 him --> BLU70) arrived to hear that Mysticmaker had just popped, but decided to stick around since I wanted this earring before I attempted to fight Maat. Just over two hours later, Mysticmaker pops on top of me, but another RDM in the area got claim ; ;

I really wouldn't suggest soloing him though, as a RDM. The other RDM was doing pretty well damage wise--he stayed out of melee range and kept Poison II and Bio II up as well as Blink & Stoneskin for the magic attacks that landed. However...he didn't cast often enough and lost claim. Myself and another RDM were both hounding Mysticmaker waiting for this to happen, and both spammed Dia. Thankfully I was a bit quicker ^^

My bf didn't realize I had claim (though several <call>'s later he sure did :p), but once he did we made short work of Mysticmaker, and got drop ^^

So, it's definately solo-able by a 70 rdm but if there are other campers I would highly suggest bringing a friend so you don't have to rely on DoT spells to kill Mystiicmaker.

Profblix wasn't as bad as I thought.
I went in there (71Thf/Nin) with about 7 people, 4 of which needed the Moldavite Earring. Started early in the day. Took positions spread out around the spawn area.

4 consecutive kills later. 2 Blm's and 2 Rdm's in my LS are enjoying their new toy. Everyone has the map for LoO, and made some money from Gold and Brass Ingots that the Gob. Enchanterers drop.

TH3 ftw.

I just got finished soloing this guy as 70RDM/BLM with a Goblin Hunter and Miner add. They only made it take longer. Saw him, nobody else around and I need the earring for my now 52BLM so I claimed him with a Silence(which didn't stick, odd since i have 258 Enfeebling) went through the normal enfeeb chain, Dia 2, Slow, Paralyze, threw up Stoneskin, Refresh, Phalanx. After that just DD him down threw in some Aero III for good measure he went down. Didn't even need to Convert with Aspir and Drain. Eventhough I did on his adds just to drop them faster.

0/1 on Moldy Earring

but he did drop this amazing Scroll of Thundaga III... /sarcasm


Now 0/2 today. Same thing happened but JP on Shiva server named Fakeman stood there hopeing I'd die from adds. No luck on his part though /laugh

Me and my friend have camped this guy over and over at least 20 times and we haven't gotten drop.

We get claim everytime...but we are still

Camping him right now...hopefully this will be the last time. >_<

I had a go at this guy, just to give you another take on the NM if you are thinking about killing him.

FYI, I'm 75THF/NIN with decent gear, but not Heca and Homam level.

A friend of mine (Drcrash) wanted this earring as he is a BLM, so I thought I would have a go and try and get it for him. Sadly, he'd just been farming and was BLM62/THF20 and didn't realise until we arrived.

I said we'd just have to go at it, and see how we did. There was a 75MNK and a 75WHM RMT camping it too, but the MNK left after a few mins, and wasn't helping kill the PH at all (I was using the theory that Goblin Hunters where PH, but tbh I was killing them all anyway).

After about 45 mins, I was in the tunnel killing a Goblin Hunter, and the NM popped toward the Buburimbu end. My friend claimed it with stun, beating an amazed RMT who promptly tried to Cure V us both (I had /blockaid on, and told me friend to put it on too).

Mysticmaker opened with a Aeroga II (or III, can't remember now) and did me about 340 dmg, and blew shadows. I gave him a couple of smacks to save my friend, who was in the red HP-wise, and got shadows up.

He does die pretty quickly - was hitting for ~100 or so with a Harpe mainhand, THF Knife offhand. As my friend had come /THF, I couldn't get any cures, and was having difficulty getting sleep bolts to proc. Bloody were ok, averaging 70 HP or so.

Manafont was tricky - I'd just used :Ichi, :ni was on recast and he busted out 3 -gas in a row, so I was left with about 200HP and /recast down on both Utsusemi. Luckily my evasion was ok, and he is pretty blind, so I didn't take any melee damage. I gave him a quick Dancing Edge once I'd got a little HP back, and he was down.

It was a harder fight than I was expecting - it didn't help my friend did not sub WHM and died about 5 seconds in, so only got one stun off. I think a better strategy would have been just to zerg him, I wasted a lot of time trying to recast shadows, only for him to -ga anyway and I lost them.

I think he gave me 2.8k gil, Thunder III, Goblin Helm and a Moldavite earring. Congratulations Drcrash on your new earring ! ^^;

Not a lottery pop. Waited there for a while without killing anything and he popped (got earring 1/1).

It doesnt state on here but on http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Mysticmaker_Profblix it states soloable at 70+. Now I guess this depends on job a little but they are not kidding.

A blm friend needed and needed my help. To try and make a long story short, he pops after about an hour waiting with some competition and I get claim. Blm friend is lvl 61, so able to put forth some DD. Wasnt ready for the pop so I went into battle with about 200/322mp, maybe a little less and was in Sub-par DD build. Was subbing /thf to help drop rate and only lvl 22. Not much to gain from the sub as far as offensive traits.

Called out my awsome lvl 43 NPC Healer and we went to town. MP started getting low and HP wasnt looking all that great. Half way through battle I went to turtle mode just to try and out last him. Was actually getting nervous. Of course my friend got aggroed by a gob but luckily slept it. In the end we beat him and got drop. 1/1

Moral of the story: Dont underestimate him. His magic and AM hurts and without a proper tank you could be in for a ugly fight. I would have been ok if I had full MP and was kinda rdy. Tough little booger, I'll say that much.

Blm solo

After hitting 68blm, I finally figured it was about time to go and have a try at this mob and see if I can get the earring. I'd been wanting it since 47, but now I figured I could solo it. FFXI Atlas says that hes soloable at lvl70. ***** that, im going to try now.
First off, everything checks as EP around my level in Onzozo but nothing aggros unless you rest right in front of it. So dont worry about invis. Anyways, I stand around and solo some Goblin Hunters using DoT and Blind. Works great. So Mystic pops and I get claim no problem. Now I figure my DoT tactic may work with mysticmaker. But blm's dont much care if you wanna stand back. They just nuke you to death. Whoops on that one, lets try and beat it to death with an Earthstaff. Blaze spikes is a pain, so just cast Barfira and youre good on that. I smacked away with my staff and kept Drown up on him and Ice spikes up on myself. When he started casting freeze i just switched to Barblizzara and it only hit me for 200. After wacking away for another 5ish minutes and alternatley casting Aspir and Drain whenever they were up, hes at about 15% health and i'm almost out of mp. Pop on the two hour and drop StoneIV and Blizzard III...
Yanktastic defeats Mysticmaker Profblix.
You find a Moldavite Earring on Mysticmaker Profblix.

Well all right! Few key tips and any Blm can solo this at 68, maybe sooner.
Dont get a link. Clear room first or youll die when he pops. Noone will help you with links.
Earthstaff and Icespikes are life savers,as the paralyze seems to stick well.
Dont sub rdm for dispel or gravity. Mob loves to drop Bio2 and Poison2 on you. Sub /whm for devine seal Cure3 and erase.
I had to use two hour, but if you just straight tank him you might not even need that. Dont stand back, it gets you dead ><. Gl with drops.

Got my moldy tonight! Went 0/5 claims in a row, then finally got a blm friend of mine to come help camp, and sure enough, he got the claim for me (thanks Whitesquallmage). Here's how it went down....

There we were.. camping the NM gob, and there were about 5 others there as well. I had been there all day, lost 5 claims in a row, and was really ******* My ls friend comes down. He gets there about 5 mins before the 2 HR mark of ToD. He's lvl 55 blm and immediately gets aggro from a cockatrice. I have 70RDM sub 20WAR(for faster claim with voke) and voke it off him. We kill it, and continue waiting. 2HR mark comes. Right then he gets another aggro from a cockatrice and I procede to voke it off him. This time I tell him to keep his eyes open for the gob pop and i'll take care of the aggro. I kill it to 50% when our NM pops. He nabs it with stun. I knew he couldn't hold it long at 55, so i sleep the cockatrice and turn around and start beating the **** out of our gob. used all my stored TP, casted stoneskin about 3 times, and was healing both of us. He's down to about 50%, and starts casting tornado. I was in the middle of casting stoneskin and am freaking out hoping it goes faster. It finished casting and i threw up baraero. He casts, took 23 dmg lol. Cockatrice wakes up, i sleep it again. then my buddy gets another gob aggro. I can't sleep it in time, and he dies. Just then I finish off the NM with 9MP and about 600HP left. All my buffs had faded. We get the drop! I cast lots, but my buddy can't pass cause he's, well, dead. Cockatrice wakes up and i have a full health gob too. I start fighting the cockatrice, but there's no way since i have no mp and there is another gob too. First thing that comes to mind was to zone. I start running and my friend is like, "zone you don't get the moldy" I'm like oh **** you're right... so i run back to the pop area and shout heal me 50k! lol what looked like an RMT started healing me and raised my friend. he passes, i kill aggro and I get my moldy earring! Of course in the most sloppy way possible, but hey, I don't care!

SO wait for pop for about and hour. He pops 67rdm/33whm dia pull start to fight. and boom his goblin buddies repop drop my buffs and I catch an AM Death. So i beg Ls for help no mages on, so now im mad HP pay the lil greedy taru to warp sandy OP run back, he still therer buff and RDM/blm. pull him to a tunnel . And proceed to whack away SS, phalanx, haste, shock spike, enBlizzard, refresh, barblizzard.

He cast AM I run really easy to run away like everyone says. And he follows you when he fails casting. Watch out for sleep with SS up. don't worry about any other spells he uses I resist all but on sleeep, his other nukes where a joke. But other then that he was a cake if you can avid aggro from the other gobs .

When the world ends, and the darkness rises. I will step from the shadows and slay the evil from within!
