They added my picture. Yay. o.o; Heh.
I'm semi-immortalized.

Surprised it took so long though... They get a lot of things up very quickly.

#Benn, Posted: Dec 27 2004 at 2:05 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yes, but lets think.If he did drop the great eurytos bow then either the bow would be a crappy piece of ****. OR. his spawn time would go up to 24hrs+ and he would be lvl 62. and who wants to fight a lvl 62 gigas rng. NOT ME.^^

No, think of it as the bow being the one from the legend, and this NM being named after the Eurytos in the legend.

It's like Argus the NM (Personification of the Argus of legend [had lots of eyes]), and the NPC Argus in Bastok, who was more named after Argus (No clue why) than supposed to be him.

The Story of Eurytos' Bow

The original story of Eurytos and his great bow lies in the realm of ancient Greek literature. Legend holds that, Eurytos of Oikhalia was a great archer, the best for miles and miles. Eurytos was such a talented archer that it was said that he vied with the gods in bowmanship. One day, Eurytos' pride got to him and he decided to challenge the Greek god Apollo (a god whose title was ("The Distant Deadly Archer.") to a contest in Archery. Greek gods did not appreciate whe they were challenged by mortals. Thus, "Eurytos came to grief, it's true... Apollo took his challenge ill, and killed him." Eurytos' bow was given to his son Iphitos.

Fast forward to homer's epic, The Odyssey, which happen to chronicle the adventures of (surprisingly) Odysseus on his way home from the Trojan War. Odysseus was gone for 10 years fighting a war and another 10 years trying to get home. While he was gone he left his wife and newborn son at home on the island of Ithaka. Odysseus was the king of Ithaka, and as such when Odysseus hadn't returned after 10 years of war, other men began to encroach on his household. They eat all of his food, torment his young son Telemakhos, and destroy a lot of his belongings in their revelry. They invaded his house and started demanding that his wife Peneolpe marry one of them so they could become king of the Isle of Ithaka. Before his journey to the Trojan War, Odysseus encounters Iphitos, who gives Odysseus his father's bow. Once Odysseus returns home he is disgusted with the suitors' lack of respect for his family and his home. But the men far out number Odysseus, so he tricks them.

Eurytos' Bow was so strong that a normal man couldn't string the bow or bring it to full draw without the consent of Apollo. Odysseus tells Penelope to say that she will marry the man who can draw Eurytos' Bow and put an arrow through 12 axeheads. After every man tries and fails, their arms are so sore that they can't hold swords or defend themselves in a fight. Then Odysseus enters, disguised as a beggar, and asks for a chance to try the "bow of trials." After examining the bow and carefully stringing it, Odysseus takes aim. He fires an arrow through all twelve, dead center. The suitors, in fear and awe, stare at him. (NOT a good plan) Odysseus's second arrow was aimed at Antinoos, the "leader" of the suitors. "Odysseus' arrow hit him under the chin and punched to the feathers through his throat." After this, Odysseus decides to give the others a fair chance and has his son fetch them some armor and shields. Then he starts shooting at them, each arrow brings an enemy down. Finally, Odysseus runs out of arrows. ; ; The other suitors are killed by his son. Never again, did anyone try to cross Odysseus.

And that, my friends is the REAL story of Eurytos' Bow.

"Never again, did anyone try to cross Odysseus."

Well, technically, all the families of all the slain suitors tried to revolt against Odysseus immediately after the bloodbath. A civil war was averted only through the intervention of Athena, who had a soft spot of Odysseus.

Heh, funny story. If you relate the story to the game, then maybe Eastern Shadow is the son of Eurytos in FFXI since the Eurytos in the original story gave the bow to his son... Eastern Shadow looks Elvaan though O.o ... Hmmm.

This Gigas does not drop Eurytos' Bow.

Anyone that posted here saying that it does is mistaken.

Eurytos' Bow drops off the NM Eastern Shadow in Fei'Yin.
#Ewonian, Posted: Oct 01 2004 at 11:00 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) some people were in my ls and camping this for a while, the first few pops that I was online, they copmlained about jpn's getting all the spawns, then when the jpn's logged, they won the spawn and the thf goes...OMG YESS!! JUST WHAT I WANTED!! A MAPLE SHIELD!! YESS!!...followed by some vulgar comments, but after that I sent him 8 maple shields =P and left a message "congratulations!" btw they eventually did get the bow, but by that time, they probably had sores on their ***** from sitting down for so long...

So I went to the tower to have lunch with Eurytos. He made me some meatkabobs and I shared some Windurstian Tea with him. I asked if I could borrow his bow which then brought tears to his eyes. After sniffling a bit and regaining his composure, he started to talk about his sad story...

"A long long time ago, I was an aspiring ranger. For my birthday, my daddy gave me this new bow and told me to use it when I was of the appropriate level. I was quite happy because the bow was so powerful. When I went to visit my uncle in Beaucedine Glacier, I brought my bow with me to show it off to him and my cousins. However, some dark elvaan calling himself Eastern Shadow started calling me nasty names. I was starting to cry because he also kept whacking me with his pole.

After getting KO'd, he took the bow my daddy gave me and ran off. I was so sad. After getting a raise from a Light Elemental, I tried to chase after him. I even started pulling rocks from the ground and threw it at him. None of the other gigas even turned to help as they were busying feeding their tigers or protecting their pets from those annoying adventurers.

When they saw me throw rocks, I got even more stares and looks of pseudo-amazement. Some of them started to mimic what I was doing. They started throwing rocks at their enemies. It became a fad. Because none of us Gigas rangers can afford a bow and ammo (we can't even buy sweaters to warm us in the cold outdoor weather), we resorted to just throwing rocks =(

I never did catch that darn shady elvaan. I asked some adventurer friends to try and get it back from them, but I've never heard back from them. So all I can do now is keep throwing rocks until I get my bow back ; ;

And that's how us Gigas rangers have survived so long. It gives us a bit more help when these pesky adventurers attack us and try steal our socks. They can't even wear them! They should just farm and buy their own shoes!!!"

>_< AHAhAaaa... But if you think about it a bow to a Gigas isn't really a bow its more like a disposable thing they use to floss with. Still, its scary seeing a giant rock floating towards you. Poor Eurytos...He got whacked, pretty bad and lost a few million gil.

One post here says this NM drops the bow. 5 kills so far and nothing but socks. Using thf sub for TH. Can anyone give confirmation that he does drop Eurytos bow? He doesn't spawn very often, which is usually the sign of a good drop.
I'll let anyone know if he drops the bow or not, but I'd like confirmation from anyone that knows.

You mean I don't have to be in a party to get experience points in WoW?!?
#esildir, Posted: Aug 21 2004 at 8:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol i killed this thing today as 51blm/20whm and 60pld/30war... we were getting my rank4. i did freeze and stone III while the pld just whacked at it for 100+ dmg a hit. he DOES drop a bow, its worth 6mil on Cerberus.
