Doesn't drop sirens hair anymore. Really easy to pop if for some reason you want a Narval.

To my knowledge since the last major update this guy no longer drops the Siren Hair since the RMT's used to camp him religiously.
Fun Fight

Solo this guy quite often on DRG75/RDM37. I have a wyrm armet so I get a 361 HP heal from my wyvern for 5-6 MP. I usually eat a tavnazian taco to soften his hits, with protect and phalanx, which usually lowers them from 100-110 dmg to 50-80 dmg. The real key to surviving him in my case is keeping hate on myself and not my wyvern as much as possible. Even with all of my buffs, his weapon skills Hydro Shot and Jumping Thrust hurt like hell. I usually save TP around 75% HP for his wyvern when it pops. A well placed Penta Thrust can nearly one shot the wyvern. This guy has a crapload of HP, at least 10k, so I usually have to switch to staff and use Spirit Taker to get my MP back in the middle of the fight. In my experience the hair drops about 1/4 of the time, very fun fight lol.

So uh, does this guy wander over near Charybdis' spawn?

I was logged out at the door waiting to catch a Chary ToD in my log, and uh...

I turn the TV on this morning to find myself in Lag-Gate.

Scroll up through the log, and all I can figure is someone kited him in there, got killed by a manta (I did see one person die to a manta before I bit the dust), then Zuug turned and killed me and the other Charyb camper there.

Time to get another mother ******* gold coin, and go wait another god knows how many hours to get a ToD, I have never seen this NM, and already I despise him.

Okay, I have camped this guy many many many many many times, and btw if you want to solo him as nin...bring yagudo drinks for that extra back up just in case or else you may get your *** kicked
i dunno ive camped him over 20 times
his drop rate on siren's hair without treasure hunter is 33%
he IS a 2 hour TIME SPAWN
you can leave the delta sahagin up, he is indeed a TIME SPAWN
80% of the time he'll pop right on the 2 hour and 30 min mark
if he doesnt. he hates you face it
duoable with trouble with 68drg/rdm and 68nin/war
no, zuug cannot be slept. his wyvern is a *****, if no one else is around just kill it and let zuug go unclaimed for 10 seconds it wont kill you.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaand YES zuug CAN wipe out pties of lvl 75
its called being an idiot
lesson learned taru blms: dont spam magic, itll save you a death or two
~Proud to be a Dragoon of Siren, lvl 67
~Wyvern: Muffin

I just failed to solo this NM as a SMN75/WHM37. The problem I ran into was that he had a wyvern up which I needed to kill so that the battle would be easier. The Wyvern ended up taking an 1800 Predator Claws and that was that. However, when I did a 1500~ damage Predator Claws to the Zuug, it only took off 7-10% off its HP.

I didn't have the MP to continue BPing while keeping Garuda out so I decided to Carby kite him, which didn't work because I ended up not having enough room to kite him. I also ran into hate problems even with a YY Robe equipped the whole time. I needed to fall off the ledge near the NM pop area to claim the NM so I couldn't kite it around the ramp where Charyb pops ><

K i went and camped Zuug...and...
i killed the 2 delta first like i always do, then killed the others.
got agro from manta that popped outside of the room ~_~. Killed it. Some ninja, assuming RMT but who knows. comes and stands staring out into my Zuug domain, so i'm like hell no u don't =D.
i go rest beside him waiting for the other delta to pop while he fights the other Delta in the area.
He runs back into the room once the delta is dead.
i wait until the second delta pops and start fighting it. here's where things change a little.

Then he comes back out and starts fighting the other delta and thats fine and dandy, but then Zuug pops! and i'm like WTFZ!¿ so the ninja vokes him and proceeds to train every sahagin and crab in the place around the circle like 8 times, (his nin boots kept him alive, stuff was despawning he was so fast). so eventually i figure out wut he's doing and i follow and he goes unclaimed and i steal for the claim (no coin) 3200gil xD.

Pull him back to the door where its safe and also where about 3 people are watching me hoping I die.

Although i've failed to solo Zuug many times before, i really impressed myself this time, lol. with no blind bolts i start just shooting him with bloody bolts and not engaging as to not give him enough tp to use the mean dive of death (which does like 450dmg if it hits) i engage and continue fighting once i`m healed and use WS cause i had 300tp. All pretty much went perfect, then when the Wyvern popped i thought i was done for because i didnt bring my sleep bolts...so i continue to fight and let the wyvern hit me, then i figure might as well suck up some of the wyverns hp xD he gave me tons more HP from bloody bolts than Zuug was and it eventually killed him and assured my win.
Btw i`m THF75 NIN37

Moral of the story is ...... the 2 delta Sahagins are no longer the only placeholders. thats all i know for now..... i`m guessing they made all the sahagin in that area PHers because it popped at the exact time the Marsh i killed would have spawned. but i could be wrong.

Pop conditions changed....

So I was just cruising around in SSG and happened to see him up unclaimed. So I said sure, I'll solo this guy. Cast ThunderIV, immediately tried sleeping him and wyvern. His wyvern went to sleep, but this ******* NM sure didn't. I got rocked. Lesson learned...not sleepable by 75BLM with enfeeb capped with +37 enfeeb EQ.

Hmmmm. Think a 67 DRG/WHM (or 75) could duo this with a similar lvl RDM or 73+BLM?

It's not sleepable by BLM75/WHM37 with Enfeelbing Magic 264 skill. I didn't try ES, but doubt it'd really make much difference.

I just duo'd it with another BLM74/RDM37. It was a very close fight, and we both Manafonted. I pulled without any links with Paralyze (which proceeded to wear before it proc'ing ><). We kept it bound/gravitied nearly all of the fight. The Wyvern popped at about 75% as another poster said. It was slept, and is aspirable, which helped finish off Shoreleaper. Basically we just used Tier IV nukes (one set of -ga 3s before the wyvern popped) and brought him down.

He hit me for 110-170 on normal hits, similar on the other BLM. The Wyvern was much weaker hitting for about 70.

I'd estimate Zuug's HP to be 12-15k. The Wyvern's was much less, I'd guess around 1.5k, although I didn't pay as much attention to the pet.

Drops were a Quus (yay, Bubbly Bernie pop item!!) and Siren's Hair which is going for a cool 2.6mil on Hades.

Spawn time is wrong

This one is much longer than a two hour spawn. It took me around six hours to spawn him.

I was fortunate enough to see him as I entered the area and kill him. No drop. Then I stuck around thinking I had a good shot at seeing him again since it was supposed to be a 2 hour spawn.

6 hours later and 3 different sets of LS people helping me kill PHs while timing them every 15 minutes, he finally spawned again.

Worst part is I'm 0/4 on siren's hair mobs, while gilsellers have had the last 6 entries in jeuno AH in the past 2 days. What a load of crap.

Killed as a 75thf with the help from a 70rdm and 65thf that were after Charby ToD. Wasn't that hard, just have rdm to de-buff and thf74-75 can handle him easily. I think i'll camp him solo more, with alittle better eva gear he could be soloed as thf easily.

Wellm I can't say for certain but as a lvl 75 bard I never was able to sleep him once. Made about 13 or so tries ( sleeping wyvern and a Devil Manta ) and was never successful.

He may just resist bard lullaby and its possible to use the spell sleep though.
