Just ran into this NM while doing The Hearts of Mythril quest to try and clean up my quest log a little bit. Got an insect wing and a beehive chip. What a drag.

According to wiki, you should be 16 before u are able to solo it. B u l l s h i t. Just soloed her as a 14 RNG. Heck, I could have taken her without using Eagle Eye Shot-- She has the worst Accuracy EVER. She hit me maybe 3 times, while I fed her TP she decided to just kill herself with Final Sting. I ended up with half HP because of that 65 Final Sting. Was an interesting fight. 0/2 lol xD
Seriously guys...

I camp her when I farm beehive chips because the dagger would add a nice little boost to my AH stash. It's simple. She only spawns on the second level. Kill all the bees on the second level. She'll spawn anywhere from every 1-5 times in my experience. If you're looking to make gil she's a win/win NM. If you go up there to farm and camp her she's, at the very least, guaranteed to drop a beehive chip. Dagger is going for about 5k on Pandemonium.

I was half lvling my mnk 8, half farming chips, when I see this NM out of the corner of my view, and give it a shot, as I had never heard of her before. I was like 3/4 health and got her down to 3/4 health before she proceeded to beat the @#$% outta me. It was a good effort, but since I had just used 100 fists for double agro it was not ready. From what I see, best she drops is a 10k knife.

Alot of people from Bastok start with Bubbly Burnie. I went for Sophie and enjoyed the spawn time. She spawns quickly and drops commonly. I think my count is up to ten kills now. One time, I killed her, started to rest, and before my hp were back to full, she spawned again. That was a great day for ol' Luth.

'Tis true.

I see her as war8/thf4, there's a summoner around so we party and try to take it, and fail miserably. Returned by myself as a thf18/war8, attack her. Strangely enough it was only then I noticed how quick she was, but I was a thf with eva up gear and she VERY rarely hit me. Got the drop! ^^ I also killed her once after but got no drop. Still, it's imensly satisfying camping for a while and finally killing it, even without any drop. So i'm 1/2 right now, although I must've seen her a good five times.

PS. Beestinger just peaked at 10k at AH at Bastoklast time I checked.

Actually that's not completely true. If the rare Item is in your Mog house or on your personal inventory then you can not get another drop. The trick is is to mail it to your self. Then it's not on you it's in the mail. Also don't check it. I just found that out. As for the guy who wants to comment on the people whinning about Japenese. I would almost have to agree but at the same time don't you think that typing "u" rather then "you" makes you/us look pretty **** stupid to the japenese who can read english?

Well, I'm 0/2/3 on the Beestinger, but 2/2 on beehive chip, so at least she helps you farm. The 3 times in spotted Sophie were all on the 2nd lvl of the mountain of course. Twice, she popped immediatly to the right as you come up to the 2nd lvl. The third time, the pop point was 2 large sections around the mountain, 1 section from the 3rd lvl ramp.

I was farming chips today, and some jerk comes by and starts training the hornets, that ticked me off because chips are my primary source of income at my level, so anyway, after watching this puke kill everything profitable for 5 mins, I start to leave to go farm backplates since he doesn't seem to be leaving anytime soon. on my way out, I see her, and I'm like 'no way am I gonna let this sh**head get her, so I claim, kill and get the drop, WOOT

I was up there the other day (was sick of waiting for a party in kazham) so decieded to go farm some chips to buy new gear once I reached lv30. As I was gonna be leveling rng I thought I'd try for the beestinger to keep for a while.

Killed Sophie within about 10 mins of getting there, then hunted for another 2 hours before she popped, still no drop, searched for another hour with no sight of her before I had to log.

So I'm assuming this NM has a spawn time of any where from 20 mins to 3 hours
still havnt seen her

In case nobody knows when you go up the hill to the first level of it (not at the base, actually on the hill) you're at a flat level with bees and goblins, etc. You go up ANOTHER level and THAT is where she spawns.

Anyway..The spawn rate must be shorter than most assume. I killed her twice in less than half an hour. Got 2 beehive chips and a pot of honey.

been farming beehive chips again when sophie popped at 1:30, killed her didn't get drop. So went round the shop to get some food, came back and seen her again at 1:50, 20 minutes later without killing any bees. Killed her again, no drop. Ran round a bit more farming more chips, just over an hour later about 2:30 2:40 she pops again and I got the drop.

Oh and I actually managed to get 2 of these. Had 1 up for sale on AH when I ran into her, killed her and got the drop, so I assumed my beestinger had sold, went back to town and seen that it hadn't. If I already had 1 in my hand and tried to take it off the AH does anyone know what would happen? Didn't want to try it incase it got discarded
RE: 3 spwans in 2 hours

you would actually not be able to take it off the AH.
It would even give you an error and a *dun-dun* sound meaning an error.

decieded to go hunt this nm and make some money farming chips while I was there.

Been killing every hornet on the 2nd and 3rd floors for 2 hours. Never seen her so logged out to check here to make sure I'm in the right place, and now I can't get back on. I bet someone kills her while I'm away.

On the plus side, I have got 7 stacks of chips in those 2 hours.

Finally got to fight her 5 mins after logging back on. Didn't get the drop but ended up with 8 stacks of chips and 3 stacks of honey. Now, just gotta sell them all

According to Sparklemotion, who is on my server, she pops on the "floor" of the mountain right before the top. That's if we're talking like a building here. That's all he said. Just in case you were wondering...

Oh, she pops more than once every night. If you're killing every bee in sight, she'll pop in less than two hours from her last spawn just about without fail.

Well, I made a post a few posts down, and while I still see Sophie a lot, something odd has happened.

In the first five times I killed Sophie, I went 4/5 on the drop. Pretty good, right?

Well, since going 4/5, I've killed her 12 more times for a droprate of... 0/12.

I thought the drop was almost a sure thing, but I just haven't been able to get it at all lately. And I know I don't already have a beestinger somewhere. Not in my inventory, and not in my mog house.

I guess I've just had really, really, really weird luck.

But anyway, it's still fun to kill Sophie. Beestinger has been holding steady at around 8k on Cerberus for a good long while.

wow, sorry to hear that!

Keep with it.

Is there anything that has changed since the first time you hunted her?

Maybe those changes could help us to not make the same mistakes?

Like, what day, time of day, what were you carrying or wearing, or even what was in your mog house that is anything different from when you first hunted her...if you remember that is?

Also, level difference? Job/sub changes?

From my experience, she spawns every night. I was farming and just mindlessly went after "another bee". When I took the first swing I thoutht "why isn't this bee dead and then why is it so fat? Took a look at the name and I realized, that this mob wasn't a myth.

I decided to stick around and try again. I met her at night very near the same place. But this ranger person intercepted her. Nice experience for my first encounter.
Beestinger Drop

Hello there

This is my first post but ive been hunting NM for a while and would like to inform you all that Sophie is now more more and more camped. The beestinger thanks to the rising economy can range from 20-30k now. Even though its good to have for a thief until atleast lvl 20. Your not a DD so you dont need anything expensive post 20. So the beestinger is an excellent weapon.

Im farming beechips and have yet to find her but the few times ive been there, there has been a few high level rng in the area, so it shows the rising value of this weapon.

personally, on fairy server, I have never really seen her camped. I will on occasion see a random person with their name anon, but they run through, and are gone after one trip. Not sure what these people are after, but they seem to kill everything, and it's not like they are trying to level, since they do like 70+ damage to anything up there on that hill.

Also, when selling, and checking prices of the beestinger, it's never been that expensive on fairy.

I checked your info, and it says you are on Alexander server...so I'm confused.

Either way, you make more money on selling chips than you can on the beestinger.
Average stacks of chips I amass, is about 4-5.
Each selling for pretty good amount, of 3K.
Then I finally see Sophie, for the drop. The chips are still worth more money.

I am currently 2/5 on Sophie, BTW.
