Camped here for awhile, my cousin wanted to learn dimentional death from one of the other NM there. We had 1 Doppelganger Gog, 2 baloons, and 3 bomb kings. He didn't learm his spell, we didn't get Doppelganger Gog's weapon drop, and we managed 1 bomg ring from the three kings.

Yay I gotta bomg ring ^_^

ok this is my first post on this site so i thought i'd share something i've discovered. Square-Enix know what your after!! i've spent hours upon hours trying to get this spear and hes not even popped once!!! i've had gog and the king pop but not this SoB.

on a different note this is a great place for farming. bomb rings sell for a lot and stacks of bomb ash too. also i didn't know this but maybe you've seen it, baloons drop coarse boomerangs. they sell for 10k. i made 50k in an hour here its awesome, and if your lucky enough to get a cruel weapon then thats another 30-40k on top!

Hope this helps someone.

ARGG! i almost solo'd him as lvl 21 rdm/thf

i didn't plan on fighting him, i was just figuring out where each of the ruins were, and BAM! he was there. I had no plan, so i walked away, buffed my self up, and went in, i must've gotten him down to about 30hp when he killed me, mind you i was not fully healed up to do this, i had instant revive, so i used it, hoping to get away long enough to cast one cure to try and end his reign of terror, so what does he do? he self destructs to inflict just enough damage to kill me. And i really wanted that ring...:(

Having just killed Dio, I waited another ten minutes or so, and began checking all the rooms... And there he was.
Couldn't say how many HPs he had, as he used Self-destruct [For 67 damage] with a good third of his health. When he did hit me, it was for 7, and 10 damage.

Aneirin obtains a pinch of bomb ash.
Aneirin obtains a bomb ring.

- Aneirin, 30 THF.

Edit - Spawned again ten minutes later. Invited a low level player nearby for a free ring, and took it out. Sadly, only gave out ash. >.< 1/2.

Edit 2 - Spawned again after three Baloons [1/4 Boomerang]. Nobody around, so I left it there. >.>

Camped this area for about 5 hours last night, as far as I can tell the Baloons seem to be place holders with about a 10 minute spawn time. When I first got there Bomb King was waiting killed him, he respawned about 15 minutes later after I killed everything in the area to be sure. No drop either time. For the next 4 and a half hours nothing but doppelgangers.

Bomb King 0/2
Doppelganger Goh 0/3
Doppelganger Dio 1/3

I wouldn't camp this spawn on watersday, didn't have a single spawn for a whole hour.

Well, I was sitting in the ruins, bored... and decided to switch things up and kill some NMs instead of them kill me. I took my 38SMN/19WHM to hunt down the missing Ring :D Got there, place was empty for the most part. I was having fun with the Cardians until I ran into Gog... He was so nice... He was like: 'Oh! It's Zeargi! I'll give him my awesome spear because he's a legend before his time.' But sadly I couldn't find the King or his brother.

Hmm I pop donw in there when I am bored.. as its hardly camped. Anyway today after an unsuccessful Hoo mjuu camp after the Update I went here.

Bomb King was in one of the rooms wiating for me. 10 minutes later I kill him again... then about 20 minute later I kill him again!

3 lots of Bomb ash and no dopple gangers.

still was amusing to get him 3 times.

was waiting for RSE week, thought i'd /check out the ruins for a little while. Get there and Dio was already waitin' for me, forgot his scythe at home though. then, 8 minutes later his brother gog drops in. kill him, but he wouldn't give me his spear. another 8 minutes and BAM! bomb king was floating around struttin' his stuff. kill him... no drop. -.-

after 8 more minutes, ANOTHER DOPPLEGANGER DIO! could hardly believe that 4 NM's spawned n a row. i felt like i was camping BALLOONS cause all i was gettin' were the NM's! oh well, i'm not complaining. killed dio and he finally gave me his scythe.

these are by far my favorite NM's! even though the drops aren't worth much, they're fun to camp and there's virtually no competition. plus, the 8 minutes between spawns is just enough time to run out and kill a few crawlers and steal a few saruta cottons.

We have been the only people down here for hours runnning and training the cardians waiting for either of the 3 to spawn....only a bomb, and the "three series" cardians spawn in the rooms. We are positive noone else has been down here sine we've been here. We have come to the conclusion the updates have either moved them, or removed them.

Yeah... No... I went to the ruins after an unsuccessful spiny camp (My friend was wearing the cape when he killed it) and after 3 hours of ????s, I decided to go camp this king since the ring goes for 50k on Asura. I was still 22SMN/2RNG from the spiny camp, but since it said it was level 16-18 I just went anyways. Saw it, sent Ramuh to it, his attack took about 3% of its HP, and since I'm an Elvaan SMN, Ramuh couldn't feed off of my MP. Eventually I used the avatar battle strategy and got it down to 3% HP, but eventually it killed carby faster and began beating down on me for 35 dmg each hit... whacked it with my staff and dropped dead. Sorry about the long post, but please reconsider your level range ;_;

When I arrive here I go check a spawn point. BAM! hes there I killem but no drop. I get a baloon for next spawn then after that he pops again and I get drop. He spawns again but no drop. Then gog spawns 2 times in a row and no drop. Right now 2 place-holders have popped so in about 4 mins hopefully another NM will pop. Cya

I know it's lottery spawn but still...one can't help but wonder why i saw (i know this is the wrong monster's thread...kinda) Doppleganger Dio 6 times in a row here while camping king and no Gog or king...then a balloon (place holder) then Dio for a few more hours...none of the others spawned >_< and evil shadow didn't drop anything...that day brought me up to like 0/15 on Dio <_<

That's happened to me as well. I was down there camping all 3 of them as a 42Rdm/Rng for widescan. 2 balloons spawned, then bomb king two times in a row, then i got a balloon, followed by Dio, then Gog. Then it was about 30 balloons till the king spawned again. I've also had nights where it seems like I've gone through 100 balloons with no NM spawn.
