Tried to solo this as 75 rdm/nin because I heard it is good money for the clock.

Boy was I wrong.

This beastly crab ate my shadows within a second and hit me 400 dmg a pop with 550+ crits. His metallic body can not be broken! I was hitting for all 0s. He was just too much. I got him down to 99% before I wiped.

At level 10, someone told me not to fight it....
So i fought it
Bought quus from AH for 300, made 500 off of the steam clock
So if you go out buying a stack of 12 = 3,600 (usually much less in stack)
you make 6,000

6,000
-3,600
-------
2,400

The gil really isnt worth it unless you do it alot

good alternative for learning Metallic Body

As a fledgling BLU I got really tired of trying to compete with noobs and other BLU for low level crabs while trying to learn Metallic Body and hit lvl 10 in the process of trying. Knowing that bernie does give EXP when he dies I decided to buy a stack of quu's and just force popped him over and over. He used Metallic Body at least once every fight but it took the whole stack for me to finally learn it but I raked in quite a bit of EXP in the process since he pops EM=EM+ at lvl 10

Ok, I logged next to BB spot, cause I heard a JP HNMLS was gonna attempt to kill it. I log in, and I see them about to pop him. (16BLMs/2PLDs) I sit back and watch. They pop him, Tank hit for 4,430 damage. Dead, PLD invicibles, Wall traps him in the tower! BLM are going nuke crazy, I go out for a bit. 2 Hrs later I come back, hes down to 94%. I log for sleep, log back in exactly 27 hours later, hes down to 77%! I'm thinking these JP might actually do it...

Then it happens, BB gets ******* *Black Mage Casts Thunder III* Drawn-In!
The WHOLE Alliance gets drawn-in. Then Bubble shower, no one got hit for less than 8k. It was crazy, Steam clock isn't worth it. Don't ever try this.

BTW I tried to voke him as MNK10/WAR5, he hit me for 81,928 damage. Happy hunting!

A JP group (LS named BBTEAM) on my sever got the kill a couple weeks back. They basically rdm/drk + kracken Drk'ed (lots of them) it down to about 50% so it wasn't 1shot death on , then had groups swapping in and out with water res gear and barwatera + Carol on, spamming TP moves. I was on my way to bigmouth camp, so I didn't see them win actually, but it looked like alot of teamwork. I saw a few relic WS go off, but I didn't dare stand too close.

I later asked one of the members and he said <Salt>: X <Steam Clock>: O. Whoever gets the drop is one lucky mo-fo.

First Kill

This was my first NM to kill. Just get you a Quus, take it to the Lighthouse, drop it on the ??? and there he is. He's an easy kill and he drops a steamclock for a mission in Bastok Markets near the magic shop. It builds fame, pays a little money, and most importantly, I got to add his name to my kill list.

I used this quest solely as fame and a little bit of gil while getting fame. All i did was set my HP by the NPC who starts the quest, took choco down to BB, killed it, warped, and repeated. Got famous in that nation in no time.

Oh what fun this crab can bring... me and my friend once force popped him, then just dragged the poor guy all over Gustaberg, including the top of Vomp hill... then we had to put the guy down, he got altitude sickness and started tearing the hill apart with his MIGHTY CRAB CLAWS OF DOOM! Avoid at all costs!
Easy.

Easily the best way to make money at low levels. Well, for a while anyway. Dont try and take on solo before your a decent level, somewhere around 11, though cos he will hurt you. He gets pwned so often its not surprising he has anger issues.

When ever I get bored I usually force-pop this guy and kite him around and torture it. He hits for 1-4 damage at lvl 47.. I was able to kite him around for 100 or so minutes. I finally got sick of him and crushed him in 1 hit. Also, this guy eats through every charmed mob in the zone... he will crush lizzies and crabs fast. It took 20 or so pets to finally kill him. This guy has given many laughs..
This guy is nasty

So there I was, levelling my THF, when I see a full alliance of lvl70+ fighting it.

They were doing pretty good, thought they were going to make it, until it used bubble shower, and wiped them all out!

It then proceeded to run amuck killing everyone in the zone. A couple of GMs had to come in to take care of it.

I went over to kill him in order to do the Bubbling Bernie quest, and immediately after I put the Quus down, I noticed the name was not Yellow, but (from that distance) either red or purple. I went up to it and it was red.

Apparently, when you place the Quus down, Bernie is *automatically* claimed by you. Cuts down on the chance of someone stealing your mob!

I managed to defeat this guy with lvl 10 red mage.

I do not recommend try this though as the only reason I managed it was that I cast blind at it and it missed me with 3 attacks at the end when I was at 9hp.
