This NM is roughly as tough as the Firebelcher that spawns in the same area. He seems to spawn quite frequently, so I like to check his spawn point every time I'm here because in my experience he drops Lizard Piercer everytime and you can sell that for 5000gill the the NPC merchants. The Firebelchers here will also sometimes drop a Serpentine Gun which is worth 10,000 on the AH.
how this works

Now and then when I reached a new level or 2 I decide to check what NMs I can possible take on. Just after 40BLU I tried out Tigerbane and Dnatbat. Never saw Dnatbat but claimed and killed Tigerbane. He is easy since the Lizzies dont link with him (but killing the Lizzies could bring me to low HP and I had to be very careful and pick them one and one (good farming for skins and eggs though)).
I came back at 42 and got about 5 Warrior's Axe's and a Archer's Knife but decided to try Steelbiter for a change.(I wanted the other drops too since I dont really count a NM till I got the special drop but got tired, even the Lizzies felt to easy now.) I had to be a little careful but found a good place on the little side-way where if I just kept my eyes open I could rest without worries. I could take 2 orcs between rests maybe a third but took it calm.
When I see him there is also some other players running by and I was only half on MP, but under pressure of my heart beating: Take it take it take it! I claimed him anyway. MP run out quite quick, think I was already spamming Utsusemi and hoping for a WS or 2 when he called his wyvern. We were very even, both of us down to a slice of HP when he jumped and there I was face down.
I came back when I was 43 and had a little exp-buffert to die with and this time I made sure I rested fully. The problem this time was that he poped close to some other orcs and in the middle of the fight I had a Brawler that started hitting me from behind, even if I tried to pull Steelbiter aside from the others. Once his wyvern was called I hit Sheepsong though and then it was no problem.
Got a piercer so I guess one day I have to come back for all three of these NMs again lol.

I killed him twice while I was in Davoi. The first time I got the spear and the second time I got the mantle. I prefer the mantle since on Bismarck, it's worth about 3k more than the spear. Easy fight and pretty much the only fairly decent NM I have gotten my hands on yet. lol

I was in davoi for WARs AF1 i had in my pty
40 WAR/NIN 56 DRK/WAR and a 52 RDM/WHM.
For WARs AF1 you have to go and touch a tent and it will make 2 NM orcs pop up... Well this battle was kind of hard to begin with and then all of a sudden this Steel Biter Orc pops up and links
so me and my friends are fighting 3 NM orcs
the RDM was spamming sleep and we all had to 2 hour we finaly beat all 3 of them got the sword leather for my AF1 and we got a spear dropped from steel biter.

I went to Davoi with an Ls member, 58 whtmage, to see the wyvern there. We walk around a bit kill some orcs and get some pieces of scale mail as drops. The NM pops and I decided to hit it with ranged since no one else was around then a drg uses jump on it and claims it. It was one of the drg gilsellers, they camp davoi and beaudeux.><

Soloed him as a level 50 DRG. He does have a Dragon Killer move; if you have a wyvern out it'll be intimidated (and yes, Heal Breaths can be intimidated). Uses Call Wyvern, but it's a pretty weak wyvern; mine was able to solo it no problem after I finished the Orc off(<3 Super Jump).

I did not see the wyvern use any breaths, but then, the Orc didn't use any TP moves on me, so not sure if it'll use any.

Only got the spear, though. :(

I killed him for the first time today, I slowly nuked his Wyren to death before I killed him in hopes of drops but got nothing, HE on the other hand dropped the Lizard Peircer but no mantle >_> oh and I had TH1 too so maybe the wyren drops are just rare or not there =/

Soloed him as an RDM53/THF15. I got the spear. I just put his wyvern to sleep as he summoned it and took him on alone.

First off, this guy is about level 42. Me, a level 40 DRG, and a level 40 DRK had trouble with him. He's not level 33-34. More like 42-43.

He uses Call Wyvern. His Wyvern is very weak. Weaker than Mine.

Unlike us Dragoon, if he dies, his Wyvern still lingers. It's no biggie though, it lasted like 5 seconds.

I got the Sentenel's Mantle =(

And before anyone asks, his Wyvern looks exactly like a DRGs.

Forgot to add, I had to use 3 Hi-Potions during that fight.

Keep in mind, that even though a mob is like 10 levels below you, they can still destroy you, especially NM's. Lumbering Lambert is only level 28ish, and he managed to kill me when I was 42. NM's usually get a lot more HP than regular mobs of that level range, and that is usually what poses a problem.

You're talking about two of the best melee damage dealers against a mob 10 levels lower than them.

No.

This guy is NOT 30ish.

Yes he is. Don't make yourself out to be all great. If this guys was lvl 40 and you where 42 and 40 as you said he would have kicked your *** easily. NM's typically are 5-8 lvls higher in skill and HP than their normal relatives.

Yes. He is. Level is based on how much EXP you get from him. Go get a a high level WHM to keep you healed and fight him, and see how much EXP you get from him.

He is in the levelr range posted. NM are very powerful compared to other monsters in that level range

Umm sorry but if he was lvl 42, theres no way I just killed him 5 minutes ago.
Second theres no way 2 lvl 40s killed a LEVEL 42 NM like you think he is. and 1 40 can barely take a lvl 33 mob, let alone a lvl 33 NM. I'm 54 and I can only take lvl 40 mobs at max.
So quit your ********

Then he was decent challenge to you 2. You get 60% of the exp you would gain solo when you have 2 ppl. So you would have gained approximately 70 exp solo. DC probably around lvl 38-39.
