I dont care what you say, this thing is tough as **** for a level 36-38. it almost made me soil myself. I was at the time a taru lvl 48 rdm/blm when I fought him.
So to start from the beginning. I was solo'ing in gusgen mines for my skull (arth Uhrgan quest) for more than 1 hour when a low lvl galka spoted him and shouted it and its locations. Passing nearby, i saw it and decided to engage it thinking that it would only take a min or 2. Boy was I wrong. the sec I first struck him, i knew something was wrong since I couldnt even see the damage that i did to him. granted am a taru but still, that thing keep hitting me non stop while I only took inches of his hp.

Needless to say the fight was long. it lasted about 10 min. It came close sometimes when he got my hp in the yellow near red, but i managed to kill him with all my buffs (Protect 3, shell 2, stonskin, phalanx, haste, blink, blaze spikes, enblizzard)
Honeslty, the thing that saved me was my MP. Thank god it was almost full when I engaged it or i would have been forced to uses extreme measures (abilities)

just be carfull when engaging him and have a whm with you cuz he's a %^tch with all his spells (paralyze, curse, etc) but doable alone for some jobs at lvl 44+
long fight

So yesterday my hubby (46rdm/16thf- I know, odd combination, but we were trying to up our chances of a drop) and myself (37whm/19blm) were helping random people trying to get the skull for sub. We had split up, trying to find more ghouls and I heard him say "what's that?" and naturally, it aggroed (we heard the siren, but didn't know what it meant cause it was only the 2nd or 3rd time we've been there). So I ran back over to him and helped my hubby simply by curing him. He casted refresh on me one time, but other than that, I was fine. Of course, the nm hit me a few times, but it wasn't bad cause I had already casted stoneskin and blink on myself. It was a flippin long fight, only because Doc was the only one actually hitting it, but it was successful and dropped the cotton cloth and ring. But then those stupid bandersnatches and ghouls jumped on me when I was healing, so we couldn't even bask in the joy of killing an nm. So we had to fight the seven things that aggroed, and then another skull dropped! What are the odds.

I didn't know about casting cure 3 on it- makes sense obviously. Makes me want to go bogy hunting in the dunes.
We kicked its butt today

We kicked its **** today. Me (war 41) and my DRK friend (40) were helping another friend (WHM 38) get rank 4. and we hear the siren and coincedently start talking about this NM.He was talking about how it beat him once while he was level 32 and that we couldnt take it. well as soon as we get to the ??? i see the stupid ghost and there he goes and aggros me while my friend (drk) was making a train of bandersnatches. >.< So i start running but then the DRK casts stun on him and he turns around. So i voke it off him then take off again towards the highlands zone.then our WHM Cure IIIs it and it starts attacking her. So I run back and voke it off her again. and keep running. anyways, we all zone to the highlands, me at 280/832 hp >.<
We stay to get our HP and their MP back, thinking the stupid thing disapeared. The DRK was ****** and wanted to kill it. So long story longer, we went back in and it hadnt disapeared . it was right at the door. so the DRK starts casting spells on it. I voke it. He uses a signal pearl and Souleater. I usse Mighty Strikes and the WHM kept curing it. We kicked itsa **** and it dropped all items. an ice crystal, some cloth and the god forsaken ring. >.> it didnt take us but about 5 minutes or a bit more, to kill it.

Well, the Duo of Crystal & Yuber achieve yet another NM kill, from my solo of Wurfel with 11 HP, 0 MP, and 2 HR use finish

to a 2/1 Win over Schmidt, we've finally lived to tell the tail and not get **** raped, good thing too, since we got the Ring & some cloth out of it.

After getting killed by Crushed Krause, who spawns in the same spot as Blind Moby & Smothered Schmidt, I came back to kill Crushed Krause, thinking I had my 2hr & would nail the SOB (since I was 18min from it the first time and burned 4 hi-potions & a pamama au lait)... I got Smother Schmidt instead 1 game day later. I (soloed) killed SS using 1 hi-potion & 2hr 100 Fists & about 3 Raging Fists. This was as 46 MNK/ 23 WAR, with heavy Def. & Vit armor on. I got cotton cloth & the malaflood ring. so woot.

first a notice to all DRK : be carefull with undead NM :p

I heard something about RSE gear in Gusgen and had some spare time, so i figured i could try to get the patern. As soon as i zoned into the mines i heard the siren, a sign that a NM ghost spawned. I was bored and itching for a fight, so i go look around and eventualy come to the pond i killed Blind Moby back at lvl30.

Something looks at me from underneath the water so i target and voke (lvl50 DRK). We start fighting and all went well, when it was at around 50% health it turned freaky though, tons of tough magic and stuff. And me being a DRK couldnt 2 hour , drain or aspir it. At one point i had 30hp left, and it hit me for 15, missed its second hit and i killed it with a critical.

15hp left and no drop, great fun though. Those around 50 or under who dont have a deathwish stay clear from this (unless your PLD or something)

I've seen this guy a couple of times. My main job is 50 WHM/BLM. I saw him before when I was like 36 and my LS members told me to stay clear of him. Do anyone think I could take him at 50??

I took this guy on as a lvl 52 WHM/BLM and nearly died when my backup came to the rescue. Which was a lvl 52 PLD/WAR. we almost got obliterated. My MP was low and so was hers. It left us in yellow HP. So I'd reccomend coming back when your atleast lvl 58+

This nm is so strong. I was THF39/NIN18 at the time, and was waiting for my friends to hurry up so we could get rank 4. While waiting for them, I was killing worms. I use sneak attack and trick attack, just about to kill another worm, and it spawns behind me. AGAIN. I figure with my 3 friends and I, it would die pretty quickly. well, it didnt. Our HP was even untill about 75%. my friends come, and he casts thundaga. One friend dead instantly. We continue to fight it, just cause, it looked like we were gonna win. He goes after the whm/blm, dead in very few hits. The last person left and I decide to run. I say run while I hold it, cause I have utsusemi, perfect dodge, and flee. after he gets far enough away, I use flee and run to the oldton zone. Apparently, I havent registered CoP yet, and it threw me back out. needless to say, I died pretty quickly. I don't think this NM is worth the drouble, unless you just happen to be in the area, and you're pretty high level. The ring only sells for <5K anyway.

So I mine the upper points of Gusgen because of my level and one day, I'm there, minding my own business, with the volume turned off. Though I wouldn't have really known what the sirens meant. I heard that they heralded the spawning of an NM, though I didn't know which one and in the many times I'd mined Gusgen while the sirens rang off, I'd never ran into any trouble, so like many times in the past, I ignored them. I do my usual rounds and decide to go check the point by the Oldton zone. I run down the tunnel and I see the tiny, nearly unreadable letters of a mob name. All I could tell that it was in two parts, but because of the darkness I couldn't see which one it is, so I assume it's a skelly warrior or something. I continue running down the tunnel and then I stop, seeing for the mob clearly for the first time. A ghost, I look at it's name and I can immediately recognize it for an NM. I check it and its confirmed, I contemplate my ability to take it on, but my decision is made up for me because at that moment it decides to aggro me. I go >.< and run for the zone, I coulda gone for the Oldton one, but for some reason I go for the Konschtat one >.> I'm in full field gear and I have my trusty gaxe, I stop once to take a few swings at it, the thing is stupid and I manage to get it to half its HP when I just KNOW that I'm not going to win so I zone. I heal and then I go back inside, see that it's gone and I go back to where I found him and I see an Elvaan corpse near the Oldton zone instead. He told me that he was trying to do the Blade of Death quest and the ghost NM aggroed and smacked him good. But when I tried searching it out again it was gone =(

After reading all of these posts, I feel better knowing that im not the only one who ran into this guys not know that he would be there while doing my mission 3-2 for Bastok. Im a Galka lvl 40PLD/20WAR, with great gear on so I decide, hey i have undead killer and this think is suppose to be lvl39 max, so i went for it,..bad mistake tried everthing in the book, (besides zoning it) Got it down to 1/4 its hp, but it cursed me and destroyed me with spells, i had to bloodport back to jueno. Its a sad story.

I (lv.50 paladin) brought my friend (lv.33 drk) in here to get his RSE gloves and to do the Bastok mission. We go in and I see this ghost who's bigger than he should be and has an odd name. I tried to bring up the site to check his stats before I recklessly charge in but my friend got aggroed so I had to attack it and hope for the best. We eventually beat it but it did put up a good fight. Cursed both of us. No drop though.

Really surprised me though as I had never heard of it before and had no idea of what to expect

Hope, courage and pink pigtails. The stuff of legends!

I phoned dial-a-prayer. They told me to go to ****.

i wanted to do the 3-2 bastok quest: kill blind moby. so me (31rdm/blm) and a friend (18mnk/whm) go strolling in to gusten (i have only been there once for eco-quest that went well so no bad exp YET.) we get agroed a couple of times on the way there but we get to the pool, down to 25% mp/hp i wanted to rest, when i hear a crazy noise. as soon as i ask my friend "what the **** was that" he was dead and i followed very quickly after. so there is my sad story so when you hear the sirrens run.

As many know these little ghosts pop up at midnight with the sirens but something people may not think about is that they sell to NPCs for about 2.5K if I remember correctly. So if your wandering around for some reason and see this ghost around might be nice to wack it.

Was escorting a level 18 friend in to get the Magicked skull. What a mess this guy made things ><

I came around a corner with my friend, and spotted a dead body on the ground. Oh no, I thought, hurried over and cast Raise.
As I'm casting I see a ghost in front of me. I look up...read the name...to my absolute horror.

"RUN", I said in party tell, "GO SOUTH RUN".

But it was too late; two hits and my friend was dead. Now 150 MP poorer, I took my weapon out, wanting to kill the thing before it killed me.

I'm a level 48 RDM btw, and Elvaan, so being 150MP down was a very bad thing ><

I Dispelled the spikes off him and silenced him, but he was still hitting pretty fair even through Phalanx. Had to sleep him once to Convert.

My friend was furious. "You promised you wouldn't let me die," he said.
"I'm sorry," I replied as I fought this too-close fight. "Do you see how long it's taking me to kill this? I couldn't have saved you. :("

All in all it was about a five or six minute fight. I did win, and got a freaking cotton cloth for my trouble XD

Well I was wandering around gusgen lloking for Blind Moby so I could get the deathbringer sword and wasn't aware of this *&#$%. So I find the ??? and move towards it when I got ambushed by this guy so me (44 rdm/ Nin 19, my solo gear = no shield and flame degen) and well..... Me said @#$@% that hes goin down. So I started buffing up. He's hitten me pretty hard D'oh protect2 and shell2 are wearing off. So I sleep him and continue buffing up. Protect 2 Shell 2 Blink Stoneskin aquaveil and bam he wakes up =/ Not happy now but I continue on and get phalanx enfire when of course yea refresh wore off =( Now being elvaan during all this means mp = 1/3 left get refresh off and finally blaze spikes now I'm set with half my Hp gone =( and hes down to 3/4 Not looking good. So I use up the last of my Mp to cure 3 and I'm ahead now hehehehe. We beat each other silly now. And refresh allowed me to get a few more cure 3's off (long fight). and of course the inevitable happens my buffs that lasted this long start dropping off. O.o hehehehehe the results of the fight ended up being 16 hp and 11 mp left and me above his corpse.
The moral of the fight is sneak doesnt stop bandersnatch aggro when you heal =(

L38? Yeah, I believe that......
I found him on accident while farming for bonecrafting supplies in the mines....remembered reading here he was only L36-38...as I was a L40 mithra monk with what i believe are decent stats {my str, after bonuses and kabob, is 64} so i took a crack at the guy....

Not going to well....I did some damage, keeping about even with him, then he did drain for almost all of his hp back...so I 2houred...and he laughed at me...I died, with him still at 3/4 hp after a 300 point special attack...can't even remember the **** of it right now.... anyone have any ideas on how to beat it? I farm there a lot, and don't want to have to hide in fear everytime he spawns =(

lol, just because he is more powerful then you, and has better abilitys, doesnt mean he is a higher level that you.
if you havent noticed, you need to be at least 10 levels higher then most NM to be able to solo them.
its like camping mee deggi for the kote. sure his level is in the mid 30s. but if you think you can fight him at lv40 solo, and with stand his hundred fists, then you have another think comming

and in general, ghosts dont take much physical damage. ypu need a mage to solo any ghost near our level. or have you never tried to kill an easy prey bogy or boagrt? i know they take me down to under 100 hp, and at lv39 sam i can still solo almost all DC mobs without getting into red HP.

This NM completely slaughtered my party. We were going to do Bastok Rank 3-2. We reached the pond to fight Blind Moby, and suddenly we see a ghost. Well, i figured we could take it on, since we had a lvl 32 and 25 whm. So I engage it bravely, then before my first swing i check it....Strength if impossible to gauge...at that point i freak out and start shouting "ZONE ZONE ZONE!! SOMEONE HELP US!!" 5 minutes and 4 dead PC's later, we were all swearing our heads off, we got our raise and finished the mission, but i'll never go there again. (at least until i'm around lvl 40+(i'm a lvl 23 warrior 11 monk btw))well, just thought i'd share my story with you all.

I killed this NM pretty easily on 53DRG/WAR had lots of HP like his twin, went down in about 4-5 Pentas. I also got a cloth on this one, no ring.

while helping a friend w/ RSE, I decided to look for NMs when the siren sounded. my friend was returning from Jeuno after getting a piece of RSE when I found Schmidt and decided to test my mettle. i was fully healed w/ some TP, so I boost stacked and opened w/ Chi blast. got in a raging fists and then opened up w/ hundred fists.

i finished the fight w/ 12 hp just as my buddy ran into the room. got a cotton cloth and ice crystal.

he did over 1000 dmg to me (i chakraed in the middle)

i would have died if he didn't waste his turns trying to Asp me a few times.

I have a vendetta against Smothered Schmidt. When doing the Bastok pugil mission, Schmidt spawned, aggroed, and slaughtered me in one hit, while I was fleeing, with a Thunder spell. He then crushed my friend. Just know that I am coming for you!

These are really really hard monsters. all the NM ghost type monsters in gusgen are about the same, when you hear that loud siren sounding noise, that means one is spawning, so run around and check the pools of water. These things have a very large amount of HP. I've killed it myself as a 50Whitemage, but it was a very close fight. and I wouldn't try to solo one again anytime soon.
maybe a lil higher lvl
