Historical Information

In Mayan mythology, Ixtab was the goddess of suicides, often depicted as a woman suspended from a bar with a noose around her neck. Because suicides, especially those brought about by hanging, were considered honorable ways to die, Ixtab would take the souls of any that had died in this manner to a paradise in the afterlife.

I camped his thing with several friends over 8 hours, and it never popped.

I cannot believe that SE would not make it so after each kill it would have a higher percentage chance to pop.

I mean cmon SE the mob was already useless in your eyes to be on the quest list to start with, why torture us?

This is the last mob I need to complete the quest, too.

Ixtab is the Maya goddess of the noose and the gallows. She is also the protector of those who committed suicide. It was believed that those who committed suicide or died by hanging, together with slain warriors, sacrificial victums, priests, and woman who died in childbirth, went straight to eternal rest in paradise. Ixtab gathered them and brought them there.

She is depicted as hanging from a tree with a noose around her neck, her eyes closed in death and her body partly decomposed.

There seems to be no or little information on Ixtab.

this nm is lotto as far as i can tell. he can pop in either of the two rooms that contain phasma's on both floor 11 and 12. there are 2 normall phasma on each floor and 1 PH. if room has 3 ghosts in it. ph is in that room. as bst it takes a long time to kill the phasma due to pets con- EP at 75.

from the time iv spent camping alky i will kill ph for ixtab. no one ever camps him on seraph and cloth is at 300k . for bst with current patch fight is a lot easier. before (mpk) patch he would use bio3 etc and whn i would release pet wouldnt heal up. now you can just release pet outside there (pop zone) and they will repop in 60 seconds .

Roughly takes 7 dire bat swaps. i call CC and 2hr and melee rest with release and rampage as finish. ( i do to all NM, guess it makes me look Groovy )

uses all magic under the blm spell book so be prepaired if you choose to fight him as any other job apart from bst and you dont hae a (reliable) mage.

im 0/18 on him. i dont mind tho as im only one who seems to kill him . and 300k isnt much.

GL to everyone on him.
Each day just goes so fast i turn around its past you dont have time to hang a sign on me
where exactly is this NM

This is soloable by a 66BST using Dire Bats and Incubus Bats in the area, but you must be careful as it'll use DoT spells on your pets so they can't heal. About 9 pet swaps should do it.

It does not seem to be a lottery spawn - nobody ever kills the Phasmas, yet I've seen it twice, unclaimed.

Nobody really seems to camp it. It's kind of hard for any job other than SMN or BST to pull it safely.

Its strength (In terms or magic) is comparable to the Magic Pots in the same area, but it has a lot more HP, higher attack and higher defence.

Theh cloth is worth 500k on Diabolos, currently I'm 0/2 on it.

He's talking about the moronic "longwanger" comment. Look at the first 5 letters in said persons name and then look at the name of the supposed drop and you'll see this is just some pre-teen getting a laugh.
