Being your typical blu I want to fight this for stinking gas.. I have only fought it once and I waited 3 hrs for another, without a pop. It wasn't too bad as a 50blu/25whm. It was EP and gave me about 30xp. He never did stinking gas though (as seems to be the theme with these mobs). I did let him beat on me until I was close to death without him doing it, too. I guess I'll wait a couple of levels and try GC again.. Any blu's having luck with this guy? I have only seen it one other time, but was a scared lvl 30 rdm at the time, heh.
Yours Shu-ly

Been hunting this mob for awhile now as my 44 blu. trying to learn Stinking Gas from it. checks as Even Match to me as lvl 44 blu but not a hard fight at all if you have gear on that gives you more then mining gear. also trying to learn its spawn time since i cant seem to learn stinking gas from it in one fight. Will post its spawn time back here for all the other blu's who might need this when i get it.

be extra carfull when fighting this mo-fo. galka MNK/54 in mining gear (not good) for fighting. Mid fight it uses a strange skill "Call of The Grave" ( any BLU that could fill me in , please do)drops my INT @.@ psh , I didnt care to check by how much. the next 2 strikes it takes at me where crits 179 and 205, im in the red now. finally take it down and get a dark cystal, 37 exp, and keep 325 of 1315 of my hp. o.o This thing has hitting just ans hard as i was. Next time i fight that ugly *******, its gunna beg for mercy MWUHAHAHA. HAHAHA.
do u have "Garuda Fever"?

I tryed running through Gusgen Mines by myself to do the Teleport-Holla quest i beleive. Well on my way this tubbalard was in my way, being reckless and overconfident as usual I buff up, voke it, and hope for the best. Well after the first hit I knew I was in a little trouble, 100+dmg on a 31 PLD don't go good together, expecially assuming you have a lazy PLD whos wearing Beetle Armor cause he didn't wanna run to San d'oria for his Eisen Armor, well it pounded the crap out of me, and I HPed... brought a high level RDM with me, not a trace of it... and I havent seen it to this day, I wanna pound the **** outta this thing one day.

Not So Rare

It seems these are not as rare anymore. I have seen at least one nearly every time I have mined in Gusgen of late. I have seen three together at once, crammed wall to wall in a tunnel.

Sneak will get anyone by them. But at LVL 52 they'll aggro me instantly without it, and hit FAST (with their tongues.)

Two nights ago I DC'd while mining a point right in front of a Foul Meat. Knowing that they are rarely killed and therefore sit there almost forever, and that my Sneak would be gone when I logged back in, I got a LS friend to distract it. (In field clothes I don't have enough defense to risk taking one on.) She wasn't sure she could take it, so we counted down for me to log back in (having been chatting on a mule), and as I appeared she Flashed him which gave her time to Warp and me time to Sneak.

I'm not sure about the spawn points on the map, as I have seen them in F8, and they don't seem to wander far when they do spawn. The one in the lower right of I-9 spawns directly under a drop hole from the floor above (I6 on the map with 5 large rooms).

I was in the back portion of Gusgen Mines for two hours yesterday, and never saw a single one of these. I was alone in the mines, with the exception of the level 50 RMT's that can't kill these, so I know nobody was killing them.

I have seen this back there before, and I am well aware of the spawn points. Every time I see it, it's always by itself and I never see another one while I'm there. Three at once? I'm sorry, I'll believe it when I see it. It may be an issue with placeholders, or some other nonsense, it's hard to say for sure.

On a side note...it's kinda funny to watch a level 50DRG RMT engage these and instantly realize they've made a horrible, horrible mistake.

Man, I've been mining in the Gusgen mines forever, I've *never* seen this thing...and I dropped right on top of it! Scared me half to death, but luckily it didn't aggro. I got far enough away from it to cast sneak, and I was fine...but Wow!

Yeah, that was my first experience with this thing. Gusgen mines are freaky enough as it is, and when I first stumbled across this ******* my immediate reaction was "OMG what the hell is THAT!?!"


and then it ate me. ;_;

Damn this mob was hard. Although I was using my mining gear. I was a lvl 51pld/25war, It brought my life down to 124 before i killed it eventually. Note: Dont fight this when you don't have any gear on.(obviously)^^

Tried to kill it, but since I had no weapon or armor other than mining gear, wound up being a Foul Meat VS Wyvern battle. Good thing my Wyvern kicks so much ***. Clay Amulet and Revival Tree Root drop. Amulet goes for about 20k every 6 months or so on Gilgamesh. What a waste of time =/

Fought this as a lvl 51 Ranger, took me down to 8 hp before I killed it, used Barrage and Eagle Eye Shot. It dropped an Undead Skin.

The map you have says "Faul Meet" but the screenshot says "Foul Meat" :P

Not a particularly drastic problem though
