I have actually ran into 5 times I think. Killed me as my lvl 6 blm. Came back and killed it with 20 rdm. I watched it kill a party of 6 who were at the lvl of 3. Very funny to watch when they die in a circle who are all taru >.>


Evil Bunny does damage to those of very low lvls but get owned b the higher owns. Also it is fatter and taller and has a longer name >.>

ok i already killed him once as my 46 THF 1/1 on the drop.

later the same day leveling BLM to ten i see him again. ask the LS if anyone wants him, noone does, shout a few times no replys and noone turns up. decided what the ****. tried to take it as level 9 blm/whm. equipt with only a Dream Robe+1 and my trusty Maple Wand.

needles to say i got off two Aeros and he was on me, batted me around abit and finished me with a crit for 38.

-_- not the best idea i ever had

Camped it for about 20 minutes. THF30/RNG1. I stood behind the tower and used widescan, killing any rarab that came within range of that.. He spawned right behind the tower as well:p 100% drop rate is true. Anyone that goes 1/2 it's because someone called for help on it and died, (killing the drop too). Good luck! I love this for DNC & BST ^^

Oh I forgot to mention. I have a sneaking suspicion that this NM has only one placeholder and it isn't simply lottery. The rarab that spawns very close to the tower (usually behind it).. And the same applying to Spiny Spipi the Crawler NM. Just a thought.

Camped for 3 hours. 1/1. He spawned a quite a way further south of the tower than I expected (i.e. he wasn't visible on my screen when I was standing in front of the tower, next to the npc, I only saw him because of widescan)
Originally went pld(71)/thf for TH, but when I read it was a 100% drop I went back and changed to /bst for Widescan.
Do yourselves a favour and use widescan xD the rarabs will give you nightmares if you have to run around looking for them :P and bring a game boy along for entertainment :P

i was on my way to the southeast tower to complete a rank mission when i , just for the fun of it, started killing gobs. i looked over and what do ya knw there is the nm just sitting in front of the tower. i paralyzed it then went to nuking it to death a short while later for extra reassurance i casted bind and nuked some more. i dropped it in a little less than five minutes and only took 17pts of damage and i got the drop on the ribbon. so needless to say it wasnt a bad start to a rank mission. good luck hunting

*note*- by the way i was a blm20/whm10 at the time

I know it's overkill, but I took my 68DRG with bst subbed for widescan. Killed about 15 rarabs at the most, 10 minutes maybe, found him, heart stopped (I don't hunt NMs much), kill in 2 hits, got the drop.

Since the ribbon doesn't sell and it's only good for low level Bst and Brd, it's an easy NM to camp. Go for it. Happy hunting.

J-10/11 btw.

Its just my luck... i camped for him for about 6 hours with my lvl 31 whm (jus so i cood raise anyone around who needed it, seeing as i know i was in for a long wait with little to do) so i hang around for a few hours and notin, not a single thing... he didnt show and i was getting sick of killing rarabs! so i packed it in for the night. the next day i was out lvl my lvl 8 smn, and quess who shows up, yep there he was! so smn has the lowest def in the game right? but i new if i left then he would be gone when i got back, so i went for it. luckely i had a yag drink with me, so with some very tactical running, hiding and alot of resummoning i killed it >< and i got the loot. so i was happy and not dead. gl hunting guys!

well.. i was leveling my 9rdm, i saw him there and no one was near.. i check the lv he was and tried to take him down, he almost killed me but i zone in the hurutoto ruins or whatever,I rest, then I went out and he still there, just standing there, I saw a lv13 warrior and he tried to kill him, i wasnt going to heal him so he died =P and claim him before his life raise again.. so I took the NM he had like 2% of HP left. I made Chainspell and kill him with water and stone and got the drop!! even with the chainspell and and the 2% left of his HP I almost died.. so now im 1/1 drop =P lucky huh? good luck to all !!
he takes FOREVER to pop.

Camped this guy for nearly 5 hours one night and he didn't show up. I come back the next day and waited for about 3, and I finally saw him between a rock and the side of the cliff next to the far southeastern ruins in East Sab. My level 12 BST took him down with slight difficulty.

The ribbon was worth it, but the hardest part about this SOB is waiting for him to
pop. >_<
fun fight

I was levelimg my mule (7 RDM at the time) and happened across him. I did not know his level, but soon found out a level 7 RDM had no chance.

Died, but came back as the highest level that i had (15 WHM) and took him down. it was a very interesting fight at 15 (no sub). I started off with slow and dia. he hit me for more damage then I was doing to him, but luckily I had the MP for it. I had to use a divine seal cure 2 and a few other cure 2's but did not have to 2 hour.

either way, it was a fun fight for a 15 WHM (no sub)


*EDIT*
I found him behind the tower inbetween 2 rocks originally with my RDM, and when I got back there with my WHM he was right in front of the tower.

I was just running around as lv5 blm/rdm trying to gain exp when I go to attack another rarab, as I click the attack option I notice the long name, Needless to say I went down pretty fast. I returned right away with my lv 15 thf/rdm that had Royal armor and sword, and had trouble finding him. So I started killing the monsters around the tower hoping that I just missed it and no one had killed. Sure enough I find him again nested between rocks and proceed to fire an arrow and cast dia right after. Little ****** put up a fight but it went down fairly easily, no two-hour and only one burning blade. I got the ribbon on my first and only try.

My poor little level 9 WAR Taru mule (hey, I level my mules a bit to farm chrystals, lol!) got owned by him in about three hits ... but no matter, because she can't use this equipment anyway and I can't sell it.

Today I ran out to the area of the tower in East Sarutabaruta as RDM/RNG, to get the Ribbon for my BST 12. I put up my Widescan, and there was Ropipi on the Widescan, already waiting for me and standing about a 30-second run from me. Killed him and got the Ribbon. Took all of a few minutes.

I don't know exactly where he spawned, but when I found him he was exactly on the east/west line that separates 9 and 10 on the map, just west of the north/south like that separates I and J on the map. At east I-9/10, in a manner of speaking.

He was standing in an area that was almost completely surrounded by rock outcroppings and boulders, so it would have been hard to spot him without Widescan and track.

I never heard of this NM till one of my friends came by with the ribbon. I found out where it spawns and went around as 60RDM/1RNG killing all the bunnies in site. It took about 3 hrs for it to spawn. Then someone got it before me. Next time it took longer to spawn it but I finally got it ^^;;; I dced. The third time only took an hour. I finally got my lil ribbon for BST. I've been helping my friends get the ribbon too but they seem to have the same problems as me. x.x I think this bunny is cursed on my server.

...he killed me. Lvl 13 Thf, using Royal Archer Sword and Brass Armor set, Compound Eye Circlet, Maple Shield...I think. I had just popped up out of the ruins in the Southeast of Saru East on my way back to buy some new gear. I decided to take a lap around the ruins entrance to see if this NM was about. Sure enough, he was almost directly behind the tower. I rested up, fired an arrow at him and game on.

As soon as he started thwacking me for more than I was doing to him, I hit Perfect Dodge. I got a decent lead on him during PD but when it wore, so did I. Luckily (I thought at the time), he only Dust Clouded me twice. I was fearing Whirl Claws but they never materialized. Unfortunately, all my Dust Cloud Aided whiffing didn't do much for my TP. I waited as long as I could to unload Fast Blade. Alas, I died after using it, with only about 5 to 10% of Ropipi's HP to claim.

Vengence will be mine!

Yeah, I'm 1/2 on the bow. both times, i was lvling my 10-ish mnk/rdm, went over to fight gobs by SE tower, and there it was. I thought to myself, I should probably change and come back, but my evil side took over. I do in, hundred fisting, spamming spells, tp'ing all i can, and i get it down to about 50hp and it kills me. So you know what I do, I change to 18 rdm and Pwn that Sukka! first time I get the bow, second time, 30 exp. my advice, if you don't think you can take it, don't try. You'll most likely die, just change to your most pwnerful job and beat his *** down.
