Fungus Hat

I love the hat this NM drops. I had it on my old character and figured I would get it again for my new account. Me and my husband (21MNK/10WAR and 21RDM/10WHM respectively)were up against a lvl 90mnk/45blm. Between the three of us in K-6 it still took about an hour to pop. But I am happy, got the spawn just as the monk was making his way over. Popped voke, claimed, and got the hat. I feel bad for taking the kill but we were all there for the same thing. So it was every man/mithra/person for himself/herself. Now I'll never have to camp it again. Darksday 15:00 Waning Gibbous (88%) good luck everyone! :)

You were not there for the same thing... He was doing Magian trial 68 for a H2H weapon. He just needed the kill, not the drop.

Started out farming Sleepshrooms for my alchemy leveling. Decided to camp this NM after i was full. was THF35/NIN10 .. i know gimped. Owned the NM and 1/1. 1 hour total camping time. Advise: stay in K6 Canyon in La Theine. from what i understand all Funguars in this Canyon are Place Holders. kill them and stay in the area it will pop soon enough. Sleepshrooms sell on my server "gilgamesh" for 7k a stack. Good Luck.

I understand that the point of forums is to express you're opinion. And I understand that I post VERy rarely, so I don't really have a reputation... but...

Does every thread about an NM have to be FILLED with "boring," "doesn't drop enough," "too hard," "too easy," or some other random complaint?

There is a reason for people posting comments like the ones you are talking about. If you're trying to get an item and five people say that they're like 0/5 for it then you know it's going to be a pain and if they all say that they've gotten 4/5 times then you know it won't be that bad, the same applies to posts stating that they've beaten or lost to the monster, if a level 15 says he got owned and a level 22 says it was easy it helps to give you perspective as to what level you can take it on. So despite the fact that it can be annoying to see all the comments there is a reason for it.

I went down with my 30 WAR/ 15 THF to get the Stone Monument, and by chance happened upon this guy. 5 or 6 hits, and he was dead, and I am 1/1 with the Fungus Hat. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper...at least I would have been if I had ever had to actually camp this guy....lol

I spent a few hours camping his guy. Ive fought him many times in the past on my old server of Carbuncle, but now even on Cerberus i dont see him. Ive killed every mob in that canyon and sat there with Wide scan on and still never spawned. Ive even made sure no one came thru to kill him by camping in the front of the canyon.

It took me about 10 mins to lottery spawn this NM, and right near the stone monument like most people said. Unfortunately I'm 0/1. :(

Just started camping this because im bored. Currently 0/1 and im a thf30/nin15, just too let people know that when you have cleared the canyon there is plenty of bats inside the tunnel to the other canyon, kill these for bat wings, currently selling at 3k on fairy for a stack, better than sitting around waiting for everything to respawn in canyon. When I found him he was also near the stone monument, and there is no competition at all.

I'm 1/1 for these! took me about 45 minutes to camp it and it popped in the middle of the canyon.

After finally destroying Nihniknoovi and smashing a couple of its eggs for good measure, I decided to take a shot at the good ol' tumbler, the Tumbling Truffle. Ran through all the caverns and canyons to get to his spawn point of choice, killed all the mobs within the territory, then waited paitently for tumbles to spawn. 20 minutes pass, no spawn. Other mobs respawn, kill 'em, wait some more. No tumbler. 30 minutes pass, no spawn. More bees and Poison Funguars respawn, kill 'em, then wait yet again. After 45 minutes of waiting, I begin to fall asleep. It is near 1am and I have to get up for work in roughly 4 hours. After lightly dozing off, I subconsciously remember that I am tumble hunting, crack one eye open to look at my screen, and notice a form of a truffle through my blurred vision. Suddenly I am wide awake. I commence attack, waste little effort in defeating TT (48WAR/24MNK), and he drops.... 2 Sleepshrooms X( Needless to say I logged right then and there to go to bed, but I will return tomorrow with a revitalized determination to obtain the saught after Fungus Hat. You're not cool unless you have one, and I my friend, am cool.

Before camping this NM, be sure to leave a note telling your Linkshell and Friends where you're going. They may start wondering what you've been doing in La Theine for the past 4 or 5 days.

Reading the posts on here, I knew this NM had a long time (long, here, meaning at least an hour and a half) between pops, so I started off by killing PHs until it popped (~30 minutes) for no drop. I then went about reading for classes, exercising, and doing all sorts of boring RL stuff, logging in every 2 hours or so to kill 2-3 rounds of PHs. Thankfully, because the Truffle is so undercamped on Remora, this method worked perfectly and I never had to kill more than 4 rounds of PHs for it to pop. It's in a pretty remote area, all told, so I think that contributes to the lack of campers... which reminds me: It gets really lonely down there! In the course of my camping I ran into absolutely no competition for the NM and only encountered two other players running past on the Stone Monument quest. One even offered to Tele-Holla me out (assuming I was lost), so I really don't think adding TT to their list of kills is high on most players' list of priorities.

In regards to the spawns themselves: The only things that spawn in the canyon are the three Funguars, 2 Giant Wasps, and, when he feels like it, Tumbling Truffle. On all six of my pops, TT appeared on the hill just North of the ramp leading up to the Stone Monument (top edge of the circle), but I noticed that the Funguars will spawn all over the canyon including the ramp leading into it- so take Aksannyi's advice and rest at the entrance to the canyon so you don't miss it.

One last note- in the course of camping, I accumulated 5 stacks of Sleepshrooms, a stack of Dark Crystals, a stack of Beehive Chips, and a stack of Honey. So clear out your inventory before heading down here and do some minor farming while you wait!

(edit for grammar)

I dunno what spawn times to go by anymore. I guess 2hrs, tho I am camping him still, it has been 3 hrs and no pop. Stirke that, 4. Shove a gun up me and pull the trigger please...

I was leveling my WHM so i can sub it for BLU when i saw the Fungus Beetle. I figured it would be the thing to drop the fungus hat so i ran back, changed to my 30 THF. Hopped ion a chocobo and rode back. 10 min later when i got there i killed it and only got some crappy shield, which i later learned was the main drop from it. I ran back to S Sandy and then decided i really wanted that hat so i read up on the info here and decided it should be fairly easy for me to camp this mob. I grab another chocobo and ride down to the Chasm which is empty. I was afraid someone just killed the punk but i decided to kill a few rounds anyways. I killed 1 round, waited 5 min and there he was. Knocked him out fairly difficultly (used SA/shadowwhatever and had about 2/3 of my health to start with but didnt have to use perfect dodge. and i only had my WHM equip and THF dagger) and got the hat and a shroom. so its been a pretty good day with the shield, the hat, and a travelers mantle. it spawned near the monument and wasnet camped at all so its a fairly easy NM to get. at least on Pandimonium

I was on Remora server earlier today and thought hmm I might go camp an NM so looked on here and noticed that this one drops "Fungus Hat" (which I had wanted for ages). So i decided to go check it out when I got there, there was a guy named Deceiver there aswell and he was just standing in the same place so I ran around killing all the mobs, then thought hmm i'll run up the other end.
And there he was sat there in all his glory! so i wooped his **** and WOOHOO got drop so thats 1/1 for me.

Was doing a quest and was killing on my way down and before I could turn around to leave it poped. I got the drop. Probably one of the easiest 40k for doing nothing really.

So yeah went and tried to camp this guy last night. One other guy was there and said that it popped once when he got there and he had been waiting for another 2 hours for the next. So I helped buff him - He was 24 Monk, I was 43 Rdm -

I waited at the one end of the canyon near the Monument and eventually he popped right up by the entrance to the monument. I took him out fairly easily, no drop just a shroom. The guy left being tired and said good luck. So I camped it for another 2 hours. Played around with my new NPC I just aquired before doing this.

After my NPC left, I was walking to the other end of the canyon, the exit part, and bam he pops. Killed again for no drop just two shrooms. My mission now is to get this **** hat or any NM for that reason to drop something. Thats all I got.

To get to the canyon that this guy spawns at you need to enter a canyon at H-6 or H-7 by walking down a ramp type thing, just follow the tunnel in the canyon into another canyon which will be just above truffle then another tunnel into Truffle's canyon.

i have killed this thing 6 times now and the only thing i ever get is a freakin sleepshroom v.v; if it weren't for the fact that sleepshrooms go for about 20k a stack in jeuno i wouldn't even bother coming down here...

Went down and killed this guy twice today, now I'm 1/2. First time, killed him without subbing THF, spawned him after one round of killing place holders (about 5-10 minutes), only dropped 2 sleepshrooms. Came back later that evening and spawned him again after one round of killing placeholders, this time I was subbing THF and I got the drop. As a RDM59, this hat isn't very useful, but it looks **** cool with my AF gear, I'm gonna wear it while farming until I get level 60 so I can wear my AF hat (which is sitting in my inventory). Super easy camping, no competition at all, the hardest part about this NM was figuring out how to get down into the valley. Good luck!

Tumbling Truffle is PHed by the regular poison funguars in the area.
I advise you sub thief and do some minor farming down here, sleepshrooms and beehive chips drop regularly.

He takes:
roughly 1+1/2 hours - 5hours approx. to spawn. Only did 5 hours once out of the 17 times I've camped him.

Never wander out of the last little canyon aarea. Just run back and forth kil;ling the wasps and funguars.

Drop rate is high. 14/17 for me ^^

Good luck!
*EDIT* You can also steal Sleepshrooms from Funguars!

Went there as a LVL20 MNK/THF (on Cerberus), killed about 20 Funguars which took about an hour.
After that a high level PLD turned up, so because I never had any ranged attacks, I decided to leave. On my way out, I spot him so I used Hundred Fists and got the drop. 1/1.

For me, he spawned near the cave in the third crack (the one with the headstone).

This was so easy to camp! I was working on getting the Stone Monument thingy and my friend Crosis told me it poped there. I was like oh ****. So 15+ Poison Fungars and 8 sleepshrooms later it poped. I was really surprised too. I spanked it so bad with Banishga 2. Did 276 damage then hit it twice for 17 damage each. Got the hat and another sleepshroom. **** do I hate those things now ><. 10 minutes after I got the drop people in Valk. Dunes were already asking to buy it. I didn't know how much it went for. I was told 2k but I looked in Jeuno. Its over 30k on Lev server. Kick ***. His naew name is *************** ^^

Yes, if you plan to camp this NM for the Fungus Hat, you need a lot of patience. First off, the spawn time is very long, and i believe it can reach up to 5+ hrs. <personal experience> Second, if you don't want to miss the claim incase someone runs along and wastes your waiting time, killing the place holders gets boring because their spawn time is also quite lenghty. Third, even though T.T. is "difficult" to get to, it is a common path due to the Stone Monument just up the hill from the spawn point. 0/2 currently, 1/2 on sleepshrooms as well... So, happy camping! =)

You've got two options:

1) Go down into Ordelle's Caves, head behind the waterfall and follow the path back out to La Theine.


2) There's a zig-zaggy ramp leading down into the other cracks located north of the biggest lake in La Theine.

Edit: Decided to be ( a little ) more specific- the ramp leading down should be located in or around the northern portion of H-7 in La Theine Plateau.

I needed some gil so I decided to farm sleepshrooms. I thought it would be nice to pick up a Fungus Hat while doing so. It is never that easy though is it.....Well, it was for me. This time at least. I claimed him after about 30 minutes of place holder clearing. He spawned in the circle on the map. I am 1/1. w00t!

This may not seem like that great a NM, but if you camp it around 20-24 you can kill placeholders and make money from sleepshrooms and dark crystals and hopefully get a fungus hat as well, I have made 600k total off of this monster and his spawnholders, currently 5/12 on the hat, I believe tumbling truffle will 100% drop a sleepshroom :P but anyway just my 2 gil on tumbling truffle and good luck camping him ^^

And yes, he can spawn any where in the canyon.

I was farming some sheep skins and planning on to start leathercrafting as THF30/RNG15 and i saw this on widescan. I immediatly ran over to where it was and had trouble findin out how to get to it. >.<

So... to help anyone else who had no idea how to get there...
You must find the ramp in the southern part of the caynon in the H-7 area.

Theres a tunnel in the eastern part of that canyon which will take you to the canyon in the J-6/K-6 area.

Yet another tunnel in the eastern part of that canyon will take u to the canyon that Tumbling Truffle pops in.

Good luck and Happy Hunting.

heh, this guy is my worst enemy right now. I'm working on Blinding Potions for Alchemy so i decided to farm Sleepshrooms in the ravine so i wouldn't have to buy them, well, I decided to camp this guy on the side too. There was NO competition down there so i was having a jolly old time and killed truffle about 5 times. NO DROP. I'm so sad, cause even though the hat isn't worht much, its cool looking so I'd just like to wear it in my spare time, what shame. I'll be dedicating all my spare time to kill this punk-funguar from now on till i get my hat!
3rd time is the charm

I decided to camp this thing today simply because I was bored outside of my mind and I figured a ghetto optical hat would look good on my Thf and Mnk when I got around to leveling them. I head to the spawn point on the map and only spent around 20 minutes skilling place holders when he popped in the circle on Alla's map. I handed his *** to him, but he got the last laugh by not dropping anything but a sleepshroom. I waited no more than another 30-40 minutes skilling place holders and this time he spawns again opposite of where Alla's circle is. I kill him with a few swings and once again don't get the drop. I spend maybe another hour camping and get ready to leave and logout when I found him sitting near the entrace to the canyon just like he was the second time. I lay into his face and this time he drops the Fungus Hat.

I found the entire thing to be slightly worth while because of all the shrooms I raked in that can be sold or go towards leveling my cooking.
