I've had one of those days where everywhere I go, is an NM I have never heard of. Killed this extremely easily as monk 74, starting at half health, to be honest the drops are not worth camping.

Its a good NM if you happen to run past ans see it up, but camping it seems like a waste of time.

Solo'd as a 39 Bst while leveling off of bones. Pulled what I though was another mage bone and it was him. Two leech pets and 1 CC jug and he was down. Bone does not sell well on Siren. Maybe once every two or so weeks for 10k. Mines been on AH for over a week.

Overall, too weak

drops 2,000g+ with gilfinder, namtar bone 100% of the time and 1 bone chip 100% of the time, but can drop up to 4 bone chips along with 1 namtar bone, placeholders are only the blm ghasts, can repop whenever because it is purely lottery, can take 30 mins for next repop can take 3 hours.

goes for 10k on my server now... not really worth camping compared to the other stuff dropped in SSG even by normal mobs.

I was just walking around leveling my NPC when I happened upon this guy. I figured "why not?" and I sent carby on him first. It took little time to kill, 2 Meteorites and he was dead. I was a 55 SMN/WHM btw.

Was hunting a chest key from the local ghasts for a map when this guy appeared.
Threw an Ooze at him and he didn't seem much tougher than the normal mage ones.
You could probably take him down easily at 50ish if you don't get agro from the nearby ghosts.

Since everyone was gil hungry and camped EVERYTHING. I camped Namtar. Got him on first lotto, Mountain Buster took him to 32% hp (2163 Buster) and he died shortly after.

40k for the bone.

I was exploring Sea Serpent Grotto with my friend today. We both got our maps and we now wanted to kill some NMs. I knew where most of the NMs we could kill were (I was a 68WHM/NIN and my friend Tasios was a 61DRG/WHM). I went to check on Wuur the Sandcomber, but he was already up and claimed. So I decided we should go look for Namtar (I wanted to have some fun with skeles). So we started killing Ghasts and anything else around. After about 20 minutes, Namtar pops. I had 300%TP at the time so I ran up to him and started it off with Hexa Strike.

Scottheal uses Hexa Strike. The Namtar takes 1575 points of damage.

w00t! new record for me. Needless to say we finished him off and got his bone.

Just soloed this guy about five minutes ago while xp'ing off of ghasts as my 39BST. Wasn't a bad fight at all as long as you mind hell slash and thundaga (which ate through leeches like nothing). Anyway, results were as follows.

87 xp

Dropped: 1200 gil, Revival Tree Root, Earth Crystal
Bone Chip x2, and Namtar Bone

87xp with a dc pet puts this skelly at around lv40

Killed last night while a friend and I were "escorting" a 61 DRK and a 34 RDM to the warehouse for Tonko: Ichi scroll quest. Easy as could be. 34 RDM stayed out of battle and kept sneak up due to Oozes and Ghasts in the area. Otherwise party was 61 DRK, 57 RDM, 57 BLM (me).

We almost passed it by, until I got the idea to check it and realized it was a NM (mage paranoia kicked in even tho the room was all Too Weak). 300 gil each, 2 bone chips, and a Namtar bone. Not bad for an amazingly easy fight. Had a LS member check AH in Sandy. 10k for the bone, which the 34 RDM got. ^^

As a party (5) of 33-35s in the SSG, we were able to take this skeleton down. Both monks used their 2-hour and it was spanked. I don't think we could've beaten it otherwise.

How can I submit a picture to this site? I just fought it as 65DRG/32WHM and made very short work of this thing. Just cast silence on it and the ****** was done for. Got the bone which sells for about... 10k on Ramuh. Not worth much, but if it sells I won't complain. ^^ Free gil for me. =3

A friend and I killed this guy just a few minutes ago, while wandering around the Grotto. We were a monk 58 and a blackmage 58, and made pretty short work of him (the blm estimated that he only had around 2.5k hp). We got his bone, as well as 600 gil. He spawns around a bunch of other undead, so if by any chance they still pose a problem to you, take care with your pull.
