I Have a Couple Questions about this NM.

1.) Where does it Spawn?

2.) Is it soloable with a RDM70/NIN35?

3.) How do i spawn it or how long does it take to Spawn?

Would be nice to know thanks to anyone that will answear me those

Solo'able by 75 Smn.

Can easily carby kite if needed.
I used 1 Mp pool, no drinks, no refresh, no astral flow.

Threw a carby at it to get a feeling for his strength, ect.
1 carby took first 5%, Threw Dia 2 on it.
4 Predator Claws (1500+ each)
And Avatar melee and he was dead.
I enguaged beside avatar, and melee's for Spirit Taker, just out of boredom.

Might reccomend using Ramuh instead, that way anytime he he spawns the smaller treants, you can thunderspark.

I came to Jugner Forest looking for Jaws and Skins and I'd been there for a while so, I decided to start looking around for NM's. Today must be my lucky day because not only did I get Percy's Neckchopper drop (1/1) but, lo' and behold, Frodo (XD) was up. I was expecting a Frae, but, was okay with getting the crossbow and logs. Saw him up, so, I got excited, did a little healing (I'm nin 75, capped eva, haste +8%, Senji, Rajas sorta thing, capped Ninjutsu) So, I get to 1100 hp and he healing aggro's me. XD I talk smack to him and I see he's a HNM so I call LS mates for help. As I get him to 75% and hadn't had to recast Ni once, I tell them no worries. XD Basically, I killed him and got 25 xp and Belli mantel 1/1 on him too. I deserved him though because when I was but a wee lvl 38Drk, I came here looking for Jaws and Skins again (this was 3 years ago) I saw him and was like, "Yay!!!" and my first hit was a miss and then 3 hits later, he killed me.



Like I said

75Nin, 8% haste, Senji, Rajas, Suppanoami, Am Mantel+1, capped eva and Jutsu.
Poison, Blind, Slow, and Paralyze stuck and helped me a lot. Poison kept his Auto-Regen from being horrible.
When he got down to 11% though I think he hit a small hyper. It was everything I could do to keep lowering his health. I had to weaponskill him to kill him and poison him to take him down 3%, so, his Auto-Regen skyrocketed. Duey I killed with one ws during the whole process. Their acc was so bad, I thought to just blind/slow Due to keep from having to waste a WS, but, alas, after a while, it became easier to just get 100% on Frodo and WS Duey. But yeah, talk about horrible accuracy. Like I said, I took him down to 75% before I had to recast Ni and I only casted Ichi probably 4 times during the battle.....and that was just because I had 1 or 2 seconds left on Ni and wanted to have a cushion. Either way, fun fight. Nin soloable very easy!!

He missed me once and his hits were between 70 - 110. I didn't two-hour because I realised it wasn't going to help me if I did. I cast Drain twice and Drain2 once, and pulled off maybe 3 WS.
Managed to take 1/4 of his health away. I didn't stand a chance.
His accuracy might suck if you're a lvl75, but it certainly doesn't suck when you're still only 64.

For an HNM this things was a piece of cake. I was heading to Davoi to camp Poisonhand when I noticed this mobs off to the East side of the river. Me (59 whm) my friend 60 PLD and a 75 DRG took thuis down pretty easy. Only bad moment was when it used Drill Branch. Other than that, it was a piece of cake.

Lol! I went looking for Fraelissa and doing my outpost supplies quest. Lol!!! I went as PLD52/WAR26, I came... and I noticed this NM instead of Fraelissa, I was like..wtf? Never seen it before, so lol, randomly I attacked it. Like, 20 milliseconds later im already disengaging to run ahha, he hit for me 200 every hit and i only had 900 life, lol. used invincible, and called for help, luckily, 75 NIN assisted me. lol

Just Trio and a halfed this NM. fourth member came when it was at about 20% hp. Very ez fight, had very bad Acc against <me>, only got hit about 10 times. 68THF/nin with Scorpion harnessm, emperess hairpin, battle gloves and Nomad mantle on. I got mad skill ups on this nm; Started the fight with 189 evasion and ended with 194! Spawned Duessa at about 50% hp, kept spawning one about every 30 sec. they had about the same Acc as the main NM but hit half as hard, about 30-50 dmg.

party setup was:
<me> 68THF/nin
Fizgrim 64RDM/blm
??? 73WHM/blm?
bhudda 70thf?

got bellicose mantle and 2 rose logs.

I just solo'd this as 74NIN/WHM. Fight was about 14 mins, as I had to heal MP twice cause I didnt bring any yags in my hurry to claim NM from Whitegate. 43 THF bud saw the mob and gave me heads up. It was easy fight, but he has INSANE freaking regen. And he drops those saplings around 10% and again at 6%. All in all, another NM in the books.

1/1 on mantle, and ebony and mahogany logs. :P 450k in the bank baby! Now to just put it up in AH :/

I just solo'd this on Gilgamesh. A 43 THF friend saw it, and I went in as NIN/WHM, full buffs, and then went to town. Its really annoying when you get it down low, as it has INSANE regen. And it spams saplings around 10% as i would drop it from 10-6 with Blade: Jin and then two saplings popped. At one point i disengaged to heal MP as i didnt bring any yag's with me cause of the hurry to catch the mob. But its accuracy is freaking horrible. So healing MP was easy. Fight was about 14 mins or so, considering I had to heal MP twice.

But I did get drops, the mantle, ebony and mahogany logs. 1/1 baby! and 450k in the bank.

I just found this walking around as 75RDM/37WHM. FIght took about 10 mins, with all my DoT and enfeebs i only had to recast stoneskin 3 times. Summoned 2 saplings, easily slept. No cape drop but i got 23 limit points if that helps determine the level. WIth genbu shield and phalanx it didn't hit me for over 33 on any swings.

Soloed as a 74Mnk/nin the times it hit me they were from 80-120 damage. This NM does a move called Drill Branch that can wipe 2-3shadows. Another move that binds you through shadows. Also spawns saplings that hit me for about 30-60 damage, but they can be killed in 3-4 combat rounds or a single WS (about 600-700 health).

The NM itself has a regen effect. My fight add up to about 16,000 Health o_o

solo'd as 74thf/nin.

the fight was tough, and took (i think) about 8 minutes. i was left with about 200 hp. i resisted all his sleeps, and intimidated him a whole bunch of times with my seiryu's sword. he has poor accuracy, and the duessa's sleep for a good amount of time with a sleep bolt. an EVA build gear setup is ideal, with macro'd WS equips thrown in. bloody bolts were going for about 75hp drain per shot, so that helped a lot, and i used nearly 30 bloodies on him. blind and acid bolts were also key. only 1 duessa spawned during the fight, and i kept him slept throughout.

good fight though. i don't remember how much exp i got, but i did recieve the mantle. going for about 350k on caitsith.

this NM is not impossible to solo.

I watched a 75THF solo this one day.

I wanted so badly to try charming the Duessa... but I didn't want to ***** up the THF by having claim on one. Does anyone know if these are charmable?

Has anyone reading this post fought this NM as BST? I'd love to hear your experience.

Also: does anyone have any info on pop time? It seems like it might pop instead of Fraelissa maybe once every 24 hours or something, but that is almost entirely a GUESS since I haven't camped it much.

Muted by Kaolian. Exo does not need to put up with that ****. If you have a problem with that take it up with me.

Just fought him right now. I was coming from getting my DRK AF pants from Monastic Cavern when I saw it. I called in my driends Kinkykittenx (75RDM), Kaira (70DRG) and Hikowa (63THF) and the 4 of us took it.

We took him pretty easily, and I was hitting for a good 80-100 as a 55DRK. He near the end started spamming Sprout Spin and almost killed me since KK was focusing on tanking.

For all that it only dropped a Rosewood and a Ebony log. (It gave 4 exp if that helps find the level any since we were 55, 75, 70, 63). Just happy I passed him at night.

In typical paladin response to seeing a NM that i'd never seen before, i voked it. At lv58 it was hitting for about 90 a hit, nothing i wasnt used to. Needless to say, the damage i was dealing to it was insufficient to overcome the autoregen effect. I could have zoned it to Davoi but instead decided to pull it to the outpost, calling for LS reinforcements on the way. I did die, but reinforcements showed up in form of 72whm, 65blm, 57drg and a highlevel bst that got claim on it after i died. took the thing out...slowly. At least half a dozen Duessa's were spawned before we finally wiped the thing out. Definately a fun fight though. Only dropped a Mahogany Log.

LS Mate found this guy and called in for reinforcements, lol he got me a 58THF.

Another LS Mate 65 BLM joined and a 70+ RDM and 70+ SMN (Big thanks to Kyrno and Marv of Gilga)

We got Ebony and Maple log drop /sigh

Was a fun fight!

<Um..> I was out logging when i came across him. I'v gotin Fraelissa a half a dozen times and i wanted to get her husband and here was my chance. I'm a lvl 62 WAR/thf at the time. I was going to SA on him but he agroed to me. Thats when i knew this was going to be bad>.< He was hitting me from 150-200 a pop. I did about 600 DMG to him which took maybe 5% of his HP. again >.<
PS. I came across him on the right side of the river at I-10

Soloed this as a 75 NIN. Pretty fun fight, ******* took me down to yellow hp a couple times, but nothing the regen from my presidential hairpin and war shinobi gi couldnt take care of. He spawns these little sappling monsters about 25% into the fight, I was still able to damage the main monster while the little guys tried to hit me. Capped evasion merits proved too much for them. Hardest he hit me for was, 80-100. Pinecone bomb didnt do more then 200. Got the drop first kill ^^.

Also, I have tested the beserk theory with my whm/war, nothing special to report.

Drop sells for a cool 300k, 4th on server ^^;

Just defeated this nasty NM with 3 person PT. Mstrthief (70rdm/35blm) Bugsy (63nin/31war) and {me} Retileman (58rng/25thf). At first me and rdm tried to duo this guy.... not happening he ran out of Mp to fast and had to sleep it... as we rested its hp regen brought it back to full...
Therfore we have the ninja tank while the rdm and me nuked it then the rdm rested while me and ninja meleed. After 10 mins of fighting it is killed . I gain 9 exp and it drops a ebony log and a mahogony log.... Owell that had to be the hardest and most exciting fights i ever had! Next time that mantle is mine... Mwhahahahahaha

Well, just killed this guy yesterday.
Members were: Kyjun 75RDM/BLM (me), Anjel WHM, Maven RDM, Yoshidrgn 75PLD/NIN, Dreemer THF and Falloutx THF.
Battle was kinda weird at start since his HP bar wasn't moving one bit! I'm sure it had HP Regen just like FraelissaNM. After a few nukes and hits some kind of sapling poped (can't remember name) and we were no longer able to attack Fradubio for some reason. So we decided to quickly kill the sapling in a couple hits and back we were on to Fradubio. A few more nukes and hits and the tree was down! Overall fight was very easy! (prob. lasted 10-15min.)

-Bellicose Mantel (1 mil. - only 3 on history list)
-Petrified Log (25K)
-Rosewood Log (6K)

Not bad for 15 min. work! ;)

Today me,3 Linkshell buddy's (Vicktor,Bareviper,Bleakhope) and a 69 Thf (Cladien) Frien of Vicktor gathered and we heald up. We messed up these This darn tree. Seeing we had a THF we got the Bellicose Mantle, 2x Rosewood. Being me (Zemo) the unlucky "DeathTaru" i have little luck... we casted lots and i won everything, it was just my day. there is no stragy just fight it like you would a exp mob. Seemed Way too easy. we have (Vicktor) 74BLM/37WHM, (Bareviper) RNG 70+(i forgt he had anon on), (BleakHope) 63PLD/31WAR, (Cladien) 69THF/... , (Me "deathtaru" Zemo) 72BLM/36WHM. We Literally Owned this NM. Some AoE called leave cutter of somthing. The Mantle is up for sale for a little oer 400K. last one sold for 400k. Seems Like This NM has a really bad Drop rate as i looked at the Price History. this is all on the Unicorn Server. I think this mob is around level 48-55 at the most. i didnt get resisted at all, Aero IV 738 DMG,Firaga III 1186 So it was Pretty easy for all of us. Thanks for reading my pot^_^

Went out to seek the other treant but found this guy instead...

I got off my choco ready to fight as /NIN sub but... uhh I forgot to bring shihei. lol ^_^

But I fought it anyway, fought like 1/4th-1/5th of the way normally, till it really started to hit me. lol Then I decided to just Focus and 2hr it. That finished it off with like... 500~ HP left on me(1550~ total). Spammed Asuran several times. I got 23 experience, but no drops. ;)

Dreussa (sapling) popped too at half life, but ehhh sleep doesn't bother you much if your fighting alone like me anyway.

It was fun, but i wish i brought my shihei lol ;;

Are you sure you killed this one and not Fraelissa? :x

Me and a level 75PLD were unable to kill this thing (I was a 61RNG at the time) together, just the two of us. It was really really tough.. didn't hit extremely hard but over time it was a real pain in the ***, especially with the Duessa...

Speaking of.. I sent Alla info&screenshots for Duessa and they have yet to add the thing to the site, even though they said they would..

This thing was pretty cool, a lvl 49 member of my ls was camping trees when this thing killed him, I (60 rdm) went out thinking this was fraelissa, and wheni went in unbuffed and it hit me for 100+ I slept it and called in he troops.

Killed it, got the mantle and a rosewood log.

was camping Fradubio's little sis last night and spawned this HIM instead. seeing as how I'm only a RDM54/RNG10 I began asking my LS members and some high lvl PCs on my friendlist for assistance... nobody was up for the challenge. so, I simply /searched jugner (as a last resort) and found a THF72/NIN36 who was more than willing to help K.O. this NM (thanks again Slick on Bismark ^^)

after buffing we dove right in. I had read that he has a nasty auto-regen, so I kept dia II and poison II up the entire fight. he didn't resist many of my enfeebs, so the fight wasn't too bad... until he spawned that annoying little sapling friend. I kept the tiny ****** sleeping (its name started with a "d", but I don't remember it exactly) for most the fight, but it eventually awoke without my knowing and started beating me up. without stoneskin up, my attempts at sleeping him again were interrupted and I ended up biting the dust right before my companion slew the giant tree (he was left in the yellow HPs).

we got the mantle alone and I'm not sure whether the THF obtained any exp 'cause I was laying face down in the mud. all-in-all the battle was really fun and I was far from delvling, so it was worth it ^^

p.s. about an hour later the other tree spawned (Fraelissa? don't remember spelling ><) and I wasted her without a hitch. no drop, but another fun fight!
Give me your tots...

Drops Bellicose Mantle, I am 2/2 with this mantle and we got his wife and are 2/2 on the Xbow. We have also got

Petrified Logs, Ebony Logs, Rosewood logs from this big bad boy. A pretty tough long fight.

Seia and Talonea have the mantles on Ramuh Server that I know of. Both are flashed on the AH's. Seia might selling her's Talonea I know for a fact is keeping it.

HE DOES HAVE A REGEN that regens from what we can tell about 15-20 per tick, NO LIE. While fighting it you hit it for 50+ and then 5 seconds later that life is right back. AoE is VERY nasty, and I watched a 75pld/nin try to solo it but fail and have to have 2 whm's keep him alive. WHAT A BLAST TO FIGHT though. BEing a mid level monk all I did was boost and run into range and chiblast. Anyways happy hunting to everyone.

HE Spawned for us in a few places

I-9 and on the far river side on the way to davoi.

ALSO on the other Gully by the bogarts.

my 75RNG/NIN friend saw this on WS, so we checked it out (I was 75/DRK), we had no idea how hard it would be. He did Shadowbind, then I casted Fire2 and Blizzard2 for about 150dmg each spell, it's HP barely moved.

RNG was tanking it OK, until I did a SA+SS on it, then hate bounced back and forth, I had to 2 hour, drained back ~800HP, and then Duessa popped up and started hitting me. Another SA+SS and it was dead, Duessa died when Fradubio did, I had ~250HP left

Later I was told a 75NIN wiped to it before we fought it.

It dropped Ebony Log and Mahogany Log. 0 xp, and no title was granted, so I'm not sure if it's an HNM or not.

I wonder about this notorious monster. I was lvling BST in Jugner when i came across him. Threw a beetle at him which he killed in 1 hit and he followed me for a sec but didnt ever catch me and then stopped following. Anyway i wanted to kill him so i switch to my brd/nin in town and choco back. He was still there unclaimed so i figured why not. I was doin fine, he got to about half health and dedusa popped on top of me which i didnt know was going to happen at the time. Freaked out. lost blink. eventually i died. Soooo, now i go back with my ranger friend and we take him again. This time i left the ranger deal with the dedusas and i focused on the tree. No problem dropped the bellicose mantle. I wonder if it can be crafted to not suck. I also wonder if he drops something better that he just hasnt dropped yet. Because that is one sucky drop for such a hard notorious monster.

Here's the story (interesting to say the least)... One of my LS buddies was around Jugner Forest one day and told us about Fraelissa on widescan, he wans't sure about it's level so i thought i'd come out and lend a hand it things got tough, when i zoned into Jugner he was around yellow health but was able to take it down, dropped ebony log and the Almogavar Bow. He then picked up Meteormaular Zhagtegg on WS and Flee'd over and got him, no drop.

After i'd say 5 minutes i guess he found Fradubio on widescan, so we rushed over and there he was unclaimed. Un-sure about it's level or strength we decided to sleep it while we called for our friend in the LS to give a hand. It seemed to sleep just if things got hairy, sleeping is where it's at. As she arrived we recived the buffs and enfeebled it some and went on to attack it as 75WHM/37RDM, BLM75/37WHM, and 56THF/RNG. Fradubio no doubt has a lot of HP when it hit me from all the built up hate from sleeping it seemed to drop my stoneskin in 3 hits, hit for around on average for 65ish. Our WHM had to tank it but had to put up stoneskin and blink more often - good thing she had a hi-ether belt, she said she almost used all of it up. Had some leaf AoE and Drill Branch... Pinecone bomb - seems Drill Branch really hurts espcially ones that might be in back of the one that has hate (our THF got damaged as well being bhind our WHM). About halfway through it's health it started "having babies" literally a small sprout called Dessu came out and started attacking us, which i slept when i finally saw it. Kept on continuing our current battle method and whiling i was helping cure to help WHM save MP, and it sprouted 2 more babies, which were also slept. I'd say this whole fight took just a little over 10 mins and we finally finished it, upon defeating the Dessu's were do defeated so we didn't have to mess with them. Dropped a Mahgony Log and the Bellicose Mantle a nice Attack +6 for mages.

All in all it's a fun fight, but i sure wouldn't want to fight it alone, like i said it can be slept so i'm guessing nuke > sleep > nuke > sleep wouldn't be a problem unless it spits out some babies. Awesome new NM though =)

Woot!! First Bellicose Mantle on Serpah.

This thing is scary. I sent in more info than what they have along with a screenshot but I see they didn't add it.. anyway. Crazy fight with this thing the other day. It summons Duessa to fight with it and crap, and every time you kill the Duessa it just spawns more the next time. I'd estimate it to be around 65.. possibly around 70 but I'm not sure.
