Death to this NM

1 post
Killed this guy as a 22 WAR/11 MNK. He had me down to below 50% health. Didn't get the drop, not that it was wanted. I just came across this guy by luck and figured I should try.

Alright, odd thing. I came across this guy twice in less then 30 mins. Once each at both spawns... He killed me the 2nd time around, revenge I guess :(.

I suggest if you camp this mob bring some distilled water and windurstian tea leafs and of course Dark Crystals you'll get too many hides and you might as well try and skill up camped for 3 hours and unless someone swooped up on me still nothing...
at least i got Yar Ma Yara who or whatever has the item more worth the time.

I was on my to windy, when I pasted. Asked my LS if I should kill it some said yes some said no. I was only a 25 rdm, thinking it was going to kill me. I got off, and buffed up then debuff him and he went down in like 2 minutes. I didnt even want the necklace but it was well worth it for the pics >.>

I was killing dhalmels in Tahrongi Canyon as 75NIN/37WHM (For teleports) and see 2 really close to each other. I was there for meat for a quest in Mhaura so I begin attacking. Most dhalmels go down to about 5% in 2 hits with no criticals, this one was about about 60% after 2 hits... Guess it was the NM.

No drop, but I'm sure I would've dropped it anyway after finding out here what it was.

Since he did drop dhalmel meat, which I was after, you could say I'm 1/1.

Fairly sure no one cares about this NM and never will.

No one really camps this, but it was the first NM I ever saw, so finally got around to figuring him out.

As the map shows, there's two spawn points for him. In the north area there is a group of three dhalmels. In the south area, there is a group of two dhalmels. Finally there is a placeholder dhalmel, which can appear at either camp. So:

North Camp:

Dhalmel <- If present, this is placeholder
Dhalmel
Dhalmel
Dhalmel

South Camp:

Dhalmel <- If present, this is placeholder
Dhalmel
Dhalmel

The circled areas shown aren't really representative of the dhalmel spawns.
The south camp seems mostly in the center of H-8.
The north camp seems mostly at the junction of G-5 and H-5, north of the road but south of the two talls trees; and also the southern part of H-6, atop a hill.
Dhalmels may also appear somewhat in between the two north camp areas.

Just killed twice, once duo 15 BST and 21 BST, got drop.


Second about 2hrs later it pops, i had lvled to 16 about an hour previous and knowing there were plenty of dhalmel availiable i gave it a go, sending a fresh DC against it. Needless to say my dhalmel was promptly pulverised after taking what i would consider to be 10% off Serp. in the meantime i was running around finding a suitable dhalmel for the next leg, only DC nearby >< so biting the bullet i sent it at Sherp and 2hr'd.

Again my pet was promptly dispatched despite 2hr, and yet another DC dhalmel was sent to its death, this is when i paniced, i had exhaused the dhalmel stock around (H-8) so made a dash for the spawn points in front of the crag, where i found a DC and EM ^^. threw one last DC at it and by the time that died Serp was at around 15%.

Charm then failed twice on the EM even with all the CHR i can equip, which is typical of the situation >.> once it did stick however, i was at 80 HPs 20MP, so was kinda all or nothing by that stage.

What more can i say, that EM dhalmel was a legend ^^.

No drop that time but 112 EXP with the pet penalty from my EM dhalmel. Amazingly fun fight that furthered my newfound love of BST :)

I killed this guy twice in 15 minutes today (during Full Moon). Got the drop both times. Killed him once two days ago too, got the drop then as well. Killed on again in my BLM-y Youth. Got the drop then as well.

4/4

At least one NM loves me. Too bad his drop isn't worth the time it takes me to kill him. I'm going to try desynthing them tonight, but it probably won't work. >.>

Duo'd this thing as 17blu/war and 16blu/drk while trying to get healing breeze. Stun locked him with head butt spam so he was cake. He managed to get off a healing breeze himself and he healed about 30%-40% hp.

with 71 defense before cocoon he hit me for 15-25 with all buffs up, stomped me for 42.

84 xp as the 17blu, no drop.

Not Heavily Camped
# Jul 11 2005 at 2:59 PM Rating: Decent

He's not heavily Camped because the Cerulean Pendant isn't valuable, truthfully because it's not all that great. It's easy to tell he's not camped, because I got a Teleport-Mea, and there he was in plain View. I soloed him as a 29WHM/14SMN. He got a few good hits in, but all I had to do was use Cure III when I got too low for comfort on my HP. Got a few Dhalmel Hides, which I sent to the LS Leathercrafter or whatever.

0/2 on getting the Pendant, but I've never camped him. Both times I've come by and he was there, so I killed him because I could. I've seen him at both points.

If you want him, just keep killing Dhalmels. That's about as simple as it gets.

Well I was going to Mhuara, when I see this guy trying, and failing, to fight this NM. So I got off my chocobo, and /say
"(Do you need any help?) (Disengage)"
So.. the guy waits for a while, untill his HP is REALLY low, and Im just standing there, waiting for the name to turn yellow.
All of the sudden, he calls for help..
im like /sigh, I guess hes a noob.. oh well
So I engage it, and kill it really easy, (I was level 45 samurai)
then I tell the guy
"You know that you should disengage on Notorious Monsters, they could drop rare items."
so.. he just looks at me... and looks at me.. and then he says
(I dont speak any English)

So I thought, ok, let me try and use the Auto translate.
I /tell him:
(Notorious Monster) (/no) (Call for help), (/yes) (Disengage)

so I wait for him to respond
Then he says,
"w"
and walks off...
what a great way to kill this nm,
lol

I killed this guy, he hits about 1.5 times harder then a normal dhalmel on my level 37 WHM what is about as hard as a bull dhalmel maybe slightly weaker. he seems to have slightly less HP then a bull dhalmel and less defence. basically if you can take a bull dhalmel you can easily take this guy but why bother.

He isn't worth camping, he has no good drops and is too weak to worry bragging about. I killed him cas I saw what looked like someone zoning him and toke him off of them, and he dropped a Cerulean Pendant, I haven't even been able to shift it for 5K in the AH.

In other words only kill this guy to either save someone else or just as a normal dhalmel whilst camping (and you know you can take it).

I was farming back up to pre- archers knife lvls when i saw this thing, it said "Imposible to gauge" so i was hidding under camoflauge untill so i could ask my linkshell how strong it was, didnt get a answer so i said "/l im gona die" followed by "/l here i go" or something to that effect

Battle:
Bobvob uses rng attack: 20-40 dmg
NM gets angry
NM starts running at me
Bobvob Uses uber leet Eagle eye shot: 350 dmg
Nm misses
bobvob misses with melee atck
bovob uses rng attck: 30-40 dmg
NM hits me for 7
Nm hits me for 17

Fire off 1 more rng attck and its dead basicaly, not to hard, probably didnt need 2-hr, took only 20 or so dmg i think

Only thing that makes this hard is if others link and the fact that it is basicaly a walking barrel of HP and Vitality,
Got the drop: only 2,000 in jueno on spylph,

Drop Grade: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF-
Difficulty: LOW
edit: HP=500-699, alot!!! use E.E.S if your a rng
lvl 27 rng
got an earth crystal to, not worth it at all!!!


p.s: I put it in my bazzar at max price and said: Behold the worthless NM drop from the Tahrongi Canyon!

man this NM is so worthless, ppl saw a crawler n an Serpopard Ishtar, they charmed the Serpopard Ishtar and used it against the crawler.

I saw this NM on widescan(G-6) for like 10 mins on during night hrs wit air element up. I was like, forget it..maybe later. I killed elemental, went back in 10 mins and killed it, no drop. dam wanted some dhalmel skin.
2nd time this NM popped again in 5 mins in south spot (H-8), nobody claimed it so I killed it and got dhalmel hide... well 0/2 on the useless drop.
I'm pretty sure there are 2 NM pops for this useless mob...

I just remember Widescanning for elementals, and seeing the name...

"I think it's a Dhalmel NM or something"

I got the chance to fight this bad boy a couple of nights ago, but being only a lvl 17 RDM, I died. So I was talking with the guys in my LS about the NM and how it brutely killed me. A high level WHM from the LS who I've never talked to before came to my rescue riding a chocobo. He raised me and I got to watch him as he avenged my death. After the battle, he offers a trade with me, so of course I accepted, not knowing what he was about to give me. I then received an earth crystal, a dhalmel meat, and a dhalmel hide. Now at the time, I didn't know anything about the pendant so I thought nothing of it. The next morning, I stopped by my mog house to get rid of some overcollected items and check my box from any AH sales. What do ya know, the pendant is sitting in there waiting for me. Even for a not so rare item, it was all smiles. :)

Solod it as a DRG20/BRD8 (Don't ask...it's a good combo if you know how to use it), while I was leveling off Dhalmels.


I just ran up to it and jumped, didn't even realize it was the NM, lol. Wyvern tanked most of the fight, whenever I took damage I used Healing Breath II, went pretty quick. Got the pendant and 72EXP :)

Ok here is my little horror story from last night that ended with this guy.

I'm leveling my war in Quifm and things are slow at best. My pt keeps going AFK and I'm pulling like one mob every 5 minutes because of all the breaks everyone has to take. So I disband and get killed running back to Jeuno. My HP is Delkfutt's Tower so I run back again. Wight kills me a second time.
/Sigh

I finally get to Jeuno and sell my old Lizard gear on the AH because I hit level 21 today. I head off toward Sandy to check the price on a Great Axe I need. I stop in Jugner to help some one who was being chased and I save him, but a tiger aggros and kills me>>delevel, no armour now.

Ok, no more of that... So I decided to go farm around Windy so I can get the 50xp I need to level up again and I run into Ishtar out of the blue. Well, its an NM so I have to fight it, right?

Wrong... Shoulda not done it. I pop a Fish Mithkabob (all I have on me), and grab him. My axe skill is capped mind you. First weapon skill misses horribly (ahh!)... waiting for TP, hit it again with WS and it takes crazy damage but not enough and he kills me. I only needed one more hit on him...

Now I'm way below my level 21 with no armour and I had to give up for the night because I'm so furious. I shoulda left him alone, the drop wasn't worth the xp I lost.
/cry

First sighting of a NM
# Oct 25 2004 at 8:05 AM Rating: Decent
1 post
This was the first NM I'd come across. I was partying with a BLM I'd met a while earlier, going after Dhalmels when I noticed the peculiar name of the one he had started to target. Unfortunately my cries of 'Stop! Notorious Monster' were too late as he'd already started casting. Old Serpopard killed him in about four hits.

We were both 16, so maybe there was a chance we could have taken it on but it didn't look likely from the damage I saw my partner taking. And I thought 'Strength impossible to gauge' simply meant it was off the scale compared to us.

Still, we got a raise and carried on happily.

I see many people confuse this. "Impossible to gauge" just means its a Notorius Monster. I checked this and several other NMs I was higher than (Bloodpool Vorax, Stray Mary, Leaping Lizzy, Bughi Howlblade and Spiny Spipidy) as well as several that could own me (Bloodtear Baldorf, Serket, Steelfleece) and they ALL check "Impossible to gauge"... 48WHM/24BLM by the way ;)

So, once upon a time I was running about the Windy area, headed to Bubu. Pennisula as a level 10 THF, intent on getting a different (and hopefully better) levelling experience than the Dunes usually has to offer. My LFG flag was up when I happened upon this guy. As is usually the case, I knew I was far too low of a level to take him (I only see rams in Konschtat when I'm too low and now this guy...)

I didn't even know that there *WAS* an NM Dhamel in this area, but as is usually the case when I'm too low to take a big baddie that someone else might want, I /shouted {Please check it} Serpopard Ishtar <pos> {Notorious Monster} and continued on my way.

Suddenly, I get a random invite from this anonymous ninja (i think...) and she starts pounding the mob. I accepted the invite and see her in party macros=> she's Japanese. So while she's pounding this guy for 60 and 70 damage per hit, I'm barely scratching him (10 damage per hit at MOST).

It was all over in a matter of seconds. Ishtar didn't drop anything but dhamel hides, but then again, I didn't know at the time that he *SHOULD* drop anything else. I passed on both items and bowed, disbanding. =^.^=

This pendant, does it go for much? I may try my hand at good ole' Ishtar again...

I took this guy solo level 31 WAR while farming. Someone decided to shout, "Hey look at this guy!" He was trying to level and said "How hard is he?" to me. I said, "Aw, I can take him no sweat." HE said, "Cool! Imma watch!"

The dhalmel was gone very quickly. The noob was like, "AWESOME!" I just /grin'd at him and continued farming as if nothing happened.

No drop, though ;_;

i ran into this guy farming air elements the other day and lvling marksmanship on goblins. I saw it and asked my friend how tough it was....he didn't know....so i pulled up my lvl 40 ranger pants up, switched to my newly acquired battle bow+1 slapped in a horn arrow for good luck and let an Eagle Eye Rip.... i figured be safest considering i didn't know how tough it was. Well of course i slapped him for a good 771 damage and he fell straight to the ground. No pendant tho, got 2 hides and a piece of meat. There is treasure hunter for you.

I was farming dhalmels when i came across this guy last night. I was just running around looking for the next dhalmel when this thing popped in front of me at H-8. I started laying into it when I discovered this thing had a weird name. Got the pendant, and it was my first non-quest NM kill ever. Gotta start somewhere right?

I killed this guy today as 19DRK/9WAR. I saw him while running to Windurst. It was fairly easy, I did use Blood Weapon. I got 120xp, but no drop. Drop sucks anywys, lol. So it could be a little higher than 20, considering the xp i got.

'little higher than 20'?


120 puts it RIGHT AT LV20.

72-DC-One level below you
100-EM-Your level
120-T-One level above you.

19+One level above 19=20. -_-"

for this guy i've seen him twice took him down the second time. Firstime i was still kinda new and thought all NM's were hella tought. i was lvl 20 rdm then and passed on him. Both times i seen him pop at the zone next to the Meriphated(SP?) Mountains. never seen him anywhere else but usually i'm just passin through to Windy.

Also for this perhaps he was Zoned into the maze by some low lvl player?

I have spent several hours the last two days hunting for serpopard ishtat in h-6 and h-8 no sign of him yet any clues, does he appear more when you are fighting dahmels?

It was funny I was trying to raise money by selling dhalmel parts <bones, and hides> and I keep on slashing away at any that I see. All of the sudden I start fighting one that seems stronger than the others. It was him! Got the drop but rather worthless!

I killed him a while back... I was lev 30whm w/ rdm subbed. Using that bastok cp hammer. Killed him easy... I was worried so I even regened myself... I think I cast cure 2 once or something like that if even.

Dropped a hide... So much for that...

Ran into it on a chocobo while going to jeuno, i jumped off and took it on at probably level 25, i was low in hp and i took it down to 1/4, and another dhamel came to its aid, i ended up killing both of them with about 90 hp to spare. No drop whatsoever, wasnt worth jumping off my chocobo.

I was looking for Paparka grass for the Windurst quest and killing any Dhamel I saw. I was in H-6 and I ran up and hit one. It ended up being this guy. It was an easy fight with me being a 32 MNK/ 16 WAR and didn't even get hit once. No drop, not even Paparka grass.
