It technically is a Notorious Monster, but as not all the Notorious Monsters (ones like this one) are any use whatsoever, players tend not to refer to them as NMs per se.

The too weak ones in Giddeus are an exapmle of this, they ARE NMs, but we dont count them. Any time I killed them, they dont add to my incredible 0-10 score ^^

theres a difference between notorious and named. the yags in giddeus ( eyy mon the iron breaker and zhuu buxu the silent ) both have those long dorky notorious-monster-type-names, but they con as too weak to be worthwhile to me now, so they arent notorious. i dont know if named monster is the official title of em, but there definately is a difference.

What is the point in having

1: a lvl 6 NM

and

2: not droping anything remotely usefull... or even something useless, past lvl 14 you whouldnt get anything off of this... at least it should drop a bow or something since its a ranger...

wtf?

Are you ready for this eternal kiss
There must be more to love than this,
The long-term torture, short-term bliss
And now that we are long apart,
And still I nurse my broken heart,
Our conversations stilted, stark
The scars of love have left their mark
Or have we ever loved at all?
Are we ready for the snow to fall?
hmm

This thing is a named mob. not a Notorious Monster. Just like the 2 quadov used in the magicite mission arent notorious monsters. Just mob's with cool names.

They are Named Monsters, not Notorious Monsters. They are used in quests.

if a "Notorious Monster" cons something other than impossible its not a notorious, just named, lizzy can be impossible to a lvl 75

Yes its definitly Notorious Monsters. Why would they call it "Named" that has no oomph.
NM=Notorious Monster
BCNM=Burning Circle Notorious Monster
Besides. You would have had to click the "notorious monsters" tab in the site navigation to get here. has to tell ou something.

Interesting that you would think they're Named Monsters. However, the auto-translate has an instance of "Notorious Monster" but not "Named Monster" in it.
