RDM59 slaughtered it while waiting on my buddy to get his RSE gloves... Tactics - treat it like any ghost, silence it, keep it that way, you'll be fine... yea, I was way too high level for this puss, got the cotton cloth and giggled...

...OH, I CAN say ALL the times i fought a NM and at what lvl, if i died or not. Does the meaning "Nobody CARES", ring a bell???

Seriously, its cool to post your testimony on the

events of your success, but PLEASE! PLEASE! Dont

bore us with tales of USELESS INFO. Tell us

something we can use... you own personal TIP

for excample, cuss im interested in tactic, not

tales of rejects. Tell them to your MAMA!

Just killed this guy minutes ago with lvl 50Drg/25War. Stumbled upon him while wantering around here for an hour without a map, lol. Easy as pie. Only took me down by about 200 health. Only got cotton cloth though. Oh well, its not like the ring is all that great anyway.

Yeah, i was wandering around as well, lol lost in gusgen, and stumbled upon this guy, read it ass impossible to gauge and asked LS if i could take it, and being THEM, they didnt answer so i went ahead and attacked it... 5 seconds in the fight i used cyclone ( i was lvl thief51/nin25) and accidently hit a worm nearby, which linked with 2 other worms, so i was getting beat up by 3 worms and this ghost thing... after hitting it for 2 minutes and using cyclone like 3 times, i killed it.. got cotton cloth (ARGGG!!!) and then killed the 3 stupid worms... it missed me alot... i had lvl 132 eva and +39 eva gear so... and i wandered around for anohter hour lol... till my friend came and got me out, oh well, GL to the rest of you who want this ring... i didnt get drop -.-

During RSE week, I went hunting for the keys. I saw a PLD friend of mine also hunting for the keys. Just as hes about to leave, the siren goes off. (meaning a NM ghost spawned) I tell him about this and that the drops are good for the Maat battle. So we join up and search for the NM. First we found Krause(killed, no drop), then we found Schmidt(killed, no drop), then we found Amsel.(killed, drop^^) We were lucky enough to be at the correct pool at the correct time each attempt. I guess I'm trying to say that these things are spawned when the siren goes off. Easy as cherry filled pie, but can take off about 700 HP to a 52 WAR.(Oh, happy RSE hunting!)

Just killed this last night as we were looking for ??? for the Bastok mission. Myself (lv 40drg/whm) and my friend lv 40 pld/war. We had one hell of a time on it. With the best of armor and equipment this thing still took it to us. It used drain which took away 100 mp from the pld. I cured 2'd the the pld about 4 times and we both took crazy damage. The spells that Crushed Krause casted also tore us apart. We finally killed it, but were left cursed and with 0 mp and under 100 hp. Don't fight this F'er. Not worth the drop -- a luminicloth. The rare drop is a useless ring as well.

Just did this as 41RDM/20BLM when looking for chest keys. Very hard fight, wouldn't recommend it at that level :P)
Debuffs such as silence stuck well on it, and it could only hit me for 30 damage or so but it was very fast even with slow on. About 10 minutes into the fight when it had about 1/4 hp left I started to really suffer with low hp and mp. Held it on until about 1/8th hp, then had to chainspell, convert, cure 3. Of course I forgot i only had 200hp left so only got 200mp from the convert >.<. Used elemental seal and put it to sleep which gave me about 70 seconds to rest. Running was not an option as it had cursed me so I would basically be walking.
Got about 100hp and mp left before it woke up and it attacked me again. I got it down to a small sliver of hp after using cure 3 on myselfa few time I realised I wouldnt be able to get off the last bit of hp without a rest, so cure 2 bombed it for 68damage and it died ^^. I won with 12hp and 22mp left. Too bad i only got cutton and luminicloth :( (and 61xp ^^).
NM -_-

I went in as a 40DRK/20WAR to look for Blind Moby for mission 3-2. I don't have a map of the mines because i'm lazy, so I got EXTREMELY sidetracked and ended up taking the door on the right. So I go into this room and see him standing off in the distance, maybe 20-30 feet away. Thinking nothing of it, I turn around and walk about 10ft and heal after the fight I just had with a Mauthe Doog. He aggros. I stand up and think nothing of it and begin to fight him. I hit him once for 30dmg, and use Nightmare Scythe for 60dmg. Realizing my 2hr is useless, and I just barely dented this guy, I took off like a bat out of hell. I ended up zoning with 64HP and sickness. Not a fun guy.
As always, MNK-soloable

I was mining in Gusgen today and happened to see this guy on widescan (level 43 MNK/5 RNG at the time). I was headed back anyway so I figured what the hell, went, and fought him. I was wearing Jujitsu Gi, Brown Belt, Jujitsu Sitabaki, and Field Gloves/Boots. With my 2hour, got him to about 1/4 HP before he killed me. I'm pretty confident that I could take him down with full equip and WAR sub. His curse is nasty though, watch out.

Ran into him while helping some players get skull for subjob quest. Didn't know what level he was, but got aggro from him and his buddy jelly while healing. Both of them took about 200 hp total from me as 64 drg. Dropped a cotton cloth. Yay!

Killed as RDM 53 with no equipments (i was mining in there). So it was a difficult battle (hitting me 40-60 damage) so i used chainspell, convert and recast refresh blink and stoneskin. Dropped the cloth >_<
Killed this

I just killed this thing, not knowing what lvl
it was, or if it dropped anything worthwhile.
(Of course, I was stuck in the mines, and almost
didn't care if I died and ghetto-warped back to
Bastok...)

Anyway, I was PLD44/WHM15, and I beat it with
no MP, and 192 HP left. I didn't have my 2hr
to use, since I had used it earlier, but used
Divine Seal and Cure III (which helped a bunch)

It was rough...and all I got was lousy cotton
cloth.

I had a bad time today...
feeling really strong with my Pallie level 45 i went to Gusgen Mines with a buddy of mine(thief level 22+). i told my friend to stay outstide while i was looking for the mob who drop the key for the RSE armor, suddenly i keep going further and further into the cave, i started seeing ghost of children( =/ scary huh) anyway, i started slahing all this mobs, but my search for the key was getting boring. so i decided to walk around and check the area, i saw 3 paths guarded by bogys, but the doors were close. but my stupidity and my ego of a wannabe DRK/whm made me pull the lever down and take the farther right path... there was nobody on the area and it look pretty scary, i told my friend that there was nothing there and that i was gonna check the last chamber(but i did not listen to him when he told me to go back =(...
i checked the last chamber and i saw 3 ore eater worms(so as u can imagine, i slash the .... out of them), suddenly something called my attention, it was like a small lake or a pool at the end of the path...=/...=/...=(
ohh boy i saw this ghost(crushed krause) coming out of the water and started hitting me, i knew he was more than an easy pray for me, so i engaged him(sorry to disapoint all the pallies, but that son of gun was strong and he drained my mp as well =/)he lower my hp from 800 to 400 in a coule seconds, i used my abilities and my TP but i was not enough, so i decided to run away.

but the freaking mob was hitting me hard, i ran as fast as i could to the door where i came from....but guess what? the door was close and there was no way of getting back. So my last resort was my 2 HR invincible, but it was a failure, that NM also does teleport and with my 2 hr on, he killed me =(
.... i know really sad my story, but its true.
so please dont solo it, if ur a pallie level 45 ;)

i had the unfortunate pleasure of running into this guy last night. i saw something underwater and was looking at it when it cast Frost on me.

i would have won if i wasn't half dead when i ran into him.

he was doing 30-40 dmg and his ectoplasm did about 100.
