I was running to Horlais Peak last night and decided to see if I could net myself an extra 40-50k by claiming this undercamped bad boy on my way back. I made my way to his spawn area, killed the the pair of Grunts in the room and then the other two for fun/TP and waited. After five or so minutes, I saw an Orc with a strange name wandering in from the adjacent chamber, so I went to investigate and sure enough it was him. One Tachi: Kagero later and he coughed up his Wand (cheap b'st'rd...), but I was surprised to see him spawn outside of his given range since everything about this NM is fairly predictable.

So just a heads up if you're camping this guy under heavy competition (not bloody likely), be sure to check the very southern part of H-8. Spawn areas aren't an exact science.
For a greater economy shall follow us and it will be outdone. And a greater autonomy shall follow us and it too will be outdone. And a greater feeling shall follow Love and it too we will blow to dust.
Retired. For reals this time.

As a 35whm/blm (currently), soloing this Notorious Monster is a peice o' cake. Getting a 4k wand, or the not-so-often robe drop for 45k (on my server), is an easy bit of constant cash. Clear the 4 or 5 orc area, pop the NM, wait 55 min (go watch a movie or something xD) come back. Rinse, repeat.

The robe is alot more common than 5%. I'm currently 11/27 robe the other side of that ratio for wand, having never subbed thf.

did i mention he's undercamped by a large amount? >:)

happy hunting!

I camped this sucker for 2 hr on Midgardsomr as a L25THF/12WAR, and 1st Kill I am 1/1 with Priest Robe. Bought Hermit Wand at AH for 3k so I'm done with him. For anyone that wants to know he popped at 2:24 am Central Time and it was 2:24 Light Day. Good Luck and Happy Hunting

1:07AM (RL) just killed it and got priests robe for the first time EVER, Ive lost count how many times ive camped this NM but ive killed it over 30+ times, pity the robe is only selling for 70k atm, wands selling 2-3k each in jeuno (Bahamut server) too, so before all you people start complaining about the 12kwands being underpriced or the robe being underdroped think of me selling these 30+wands and 1 robe for a mere 140k. for a weeks work not bad as a lv 24war/mnk newb. i have noticed that the neckchopers seem to be the placeholders(not confirmed) and that he does like to pop very close to the hour (RL) usually 50mins-1hr10mins. hope it helps.

You get about 10k per kill, if your **** lucky and you manage to somehow get bout 80k or whatever. This NM IS NOT WORTH CAMPING!!! If you have time to waste on camping Ashmaker Gotblut you either need to quit FFXI or get out more, this NM is a piece of sh*t that should never have been shat, it serves no purpose what-so-ever.

I did camp him on a quiet night when I needed stuff for my white mage in the teens. I had someone in chat. I did alot of forced pops. I didn't get the Priest's Robe ultimately--just a bunch of hermit's wands. However, it's worth it if you have the time and want a Priest's Robe.

Well, just after the update, no one was in the area (on Bismarck, when i came calling there has always been at least 2 people) so i thought "****, i'll try and get him to spawn"
Went off looking for a chest for the key i had, came back, found him, and whooped him.
He's one helluva Nuking SOB though!
But all the same, 40War/20Mnk...the outcome was never in doubt XD

gilsellers do that all the time, pop b4 NM spawns, kill it, then log, they do the same thing in the Blacksmith's Guild, they spawn as soon as the shop opens, buy up all the Bronze Ingots, then log off b4 you can call a GM. same thing used to happen w/ Waomoura Silk when the TOAU exp pack first came out, the gilsellers camped the Clothcrafter's Guild, bought up all the silk, then logged off, then when they were full, they'd sell it for 300k a piece. this always happens, always will...sorry but it's a fact of life on MMOs

Been camping this guy for the last couple of days, off and on. I'm a RDM37BLM18 and he is no trouble to kill. I cast DiaII, Gravity, Para, Enwater, and then start slashin his ****! He keeps droppin the wand though! Then I go up to Fort Ghelsba and camp Chariotbuster and I am 0/6 on that NM spawn. I really want the sword he drops and the robe that Ashmaker drops but I am getting bored with the Ghelsba area. >,<

I decided to finally camp my first NM ^^ and it happend to be Ashmaker Gotblut. Yes, he was undercamped, and I now see why; on Asura at least. I started to camp this NM at about 10:30, then he finally popped at 12:20... wtf. Anyway, I was happy he did pop. After I pwnd him very easily as a 30MNK/13WAR, he dropped the Wand, and I was still pretty happy, after all, this was my first NM camp and I got the drop. I later went to the AH to find that the wands were selling for 5-10k... so yeah... I spent almost two hours for a possible 10k. I dont think I'll be camping him any more.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Of all the times I've been in the Grotto, I have never seen him until last night when I was helping a friend get the treasure key for the Kazaam airship quest. We killed him with 2 level 19 warriors. I wasn't sure how hard he would be so I threw on Mighty Strikes. We finished him off with about half health left. I noticed he cast Fire and some other spells that I can't remember. He dropped the Hermit Wand and not the robe. Not a complete waste for me, because I can use the hermit wand to skill up woodworking to make Eremite's wand.

I was pretty suprised that this guy was this easy. With all the talk about his drop being kinda rare, I thought it would take a few days. However, just this morning I was walking through the Grotto, I spot Ashmaker, I kill him, and he drop Priest's robe. It was only my second time fighting him. And I don't expect to fight him again unless I need a robe to sell.

I was out waiting to help a LS buddy do his Rank 3 dragon here, so I slipped into the Grotto and figured I'd level up my Great Sword skills with my Paladin. (After all, I was lvl 32 at the time, and bored) So I systematically wiped the orcs out in here, raising my GS from 5 to 35. As I was pouding away on an orc neckchopper, this boy decides to hit me from behind. "Oh, wanna tangle?" I thought. lol So I quickly put the GS away and whip out my Centurians (sp?) Sword and Kite Shield and pound away on this fool. (all the while with the neckchopper and two sets of bats nipping at my heels) Took less than a minute to dust him, then turned and finished everyone else off behind me.

I get done and remembered to look in my inventory. Imagine my delight to find the Priest's robe there! So, I walked back out, met my LS and destroyed the dragon for the 5th time, and popped this into the Sandi AH. Next day, 180k in my delevery box. Feels like I won the lottery! Maybe I'll go back eventually for the wand to complete the collection...

This is a really easy NM to camp. But so far i'm 0/9 on the robe. Wand is a 100% drop if you don't get the robe. but it's only worth 20k :S

WOW i'm having horible luck camping this thing. but i wont stop till i get at least one drop. Its starting to tick me off because last night my friend camped him and he went 2/3 on the robe!!!

I have to disagree with last post.with mining as well and only getting hermit wands I can make 300k in a couple of hours.

much better for camping for hours for a nm when you either don't get drop or you don't get the claim.

there are 4 placeholders for this nm and when it does pop which can be on the hour or on the 2 hour it can appear anywhere in the pop area. usually top or bottom.

Well you obviously did not notice the lvl of this NM a noob actually can camp this and it's drop is now running over 300k on some servers (100k on remora). It is not often camped and you can mine at the same time. This is a great NM to camp. So far i'm 1/2 on robe.

P.S. Those Whom Spam "noob" are missing the point of life and therefore are the RL Noobs.

When i mine in Yughott i kill the placeholders as i go by, and Yes if you kill the placeholders he will pop every hour give or take 10 mins. I'm 0/5 on him but got a Hermit's Wand everytime so I believe that he will always drop this. I got it selling 20k on my server ^^

My experience with Ashmaker:

A buddy and I decided we wanted to camp this guy. We go to the grotto and to the place where he spawns. We start killing orcs and after about 20 minutes the NM pops. We kill it and get a Hermit's wand. We think oh well, at least he pops every hour as a lot of people say. WRONG! We kill this guy at 7:45 PM and the ****** doesn't pop until 10:06 PM. He popped again and we kill him and alas no Priest's robe. We gave up after that. At least we got 2 Hermit's wands. I guess it wasn't a total loss. =-)

Easy so far.

One trend i noticed with 90% of the posts is he is sooo undercamped. and yet every one doesnt provide a reason

What is his Counter part?
Yugotto Grotto is to Ashmaker as
Giddeus is to Hoo Mjuu the Torrent

Ashmakers Robe may go for 100+k but Hoo Mjuus Staff is anywere from 700k-1mil

Either way from what i have gathered is a

-1hr pop on the dot
-hermits wand Tends to be a higher drop than the robe
-No one is ever there so GL doin stuff

Gonna try to get this for my friend that is 20WHM. as a 55THF with TH2 i hope i can manage ^_^

Oops. Well, I took him at around 11:00 on Lightsday and got the Robe first try. He spawns on the hour and can be according to what happened around 10 min off on spawntime. I can actually afford dispel or phalanax now.

Well, I was busy mining away in the grotto when I noticed two high level guys with /anon on, killing all the orcs in the area that Ashy spawns. Well, I didn't care much since I was busy mining and not camping.

Now, to save on room, I didn't equip my sword and was a 48 Pld/ 18 Blm at the time, so I wasn't really gonna be killing any placeholders any time soon. So I passed them and went on with my business.

About half an hour later, I'm coming down the grotto when I see those two guys fighting about 8 orcs, they're not having any problems, just had their plates full. And just as I walk through the little archway to find more mining points, Ashy-boy spawns right behind the /anon Rdm. I grin to myself, select Ashy, and hit him with a single fist. The fight took a long time, since Paladin's don't have Hand-to-Hand skills and I ran out of MP for my black magic, but I killed him...and got the drop lol. Needless to say, those guys were pretty *******

And to anyone who has any doubts about the spawn time, take it from a veteran of mining the grotto: It spawns at the TOP of every REAL DAY hour. So if it's 7:00 p.m. or 2:00 a.m. or anything like that, I suggest you kill those placeholders. He'll spawn like a true boy-scout. ^_^
