Contents [hide]

General Information

  • Spawns primarily around the areas of (H-8), (H-9), (E-8), and (K-8) in Ro'Maeve.

Shikigami Weapon's Spawn Location
Shikigami Weapon's Spawn Location

    • Shikigami Weapon can spawn anywhere on the second or third levels, but it will primarily spawn in one of the four aforementioned locations.

  • Respawn time is between 21 hours to 21 hours and 15 minutes after its last Time of Death.

    • After a server reset, the respawn timer will be exactly 21 hours after the servers come back online.

  • Spawns with an innate Invisible effect that wears off only when aggroed, and will roam around the second and third levels.

  • Players are unable to attack Shikigami Weapon while its Invisible effect is up, though it can be detected through Wide Scan.

  • If all players that have enmity on Shikigami Weapon are defeated, or if they've lost enmity by other means, Shikigami Weapon's name will change green before its Invisible effect comes up again. Because of this, one must re-aggro it anew.

  • Susceptible to Sleep and immune to Silence.

Shikigami Weapon Special Attacks

  • Red Mage Spells - Shikigami Weapon is able to cast all spells available to a level 75 Red Mage, including the tier II merit spells.

    • Shikigami Weapon is also able to cast Diaga II and III.

  • Smite of Rage - Single target critical hit physical damage.

  • Whirl of Rage - AoE physical damage with an additional Stun effect (Circle of effect originates from mob).

Historical Information

In Japanese mythology, Shikigami were spirits summoned by sorcerers known as Onmyoji that could take the form of birds, small animals, or as disembodied entities capable of possessing people. A skilled Onmyoji was capable of calling forth up to a dozen Shikigami, though it was possible for Shikigami to break free of an Onmyoji's control, rendering them dangerous to their former masters.

SMN linkshell

As some of you may know, we have established SMN linkshells on both Midgardsormr and Sylph servers (ShikigamiWeapon is the name of the LS, http://www.shikigamiweapon.com).

The linkshell was started many years ago as a group of us, frustrated with how difficult it is to get this robe, banded together. And as we we went through that process more and more people wanted to join up with us. As they say, thats the history (although a somewhat personal one for many of us who have struggled for years to get this -- or worse quit the SMN job or even the game altogether over it).

As of this day, we have gotten over 400 Yinyang Robes on Midgardsormr and 30 on Sylph. We are currently looking for summoners, who love the job, and want to help us expand the LS to other servers. There are many other things that the LS can (and does) do of course, but Yinyang Robe is just something that is such an easy fight and so helpful that it ends up being something we generally do every day.

If you are interested, please do not respond directly to this thread, but rather send me an email and tell us a bit about yourself and what you think would make you a good leader of our LS on your server. I have a few SMN/75's and can probably send one to your server to help you get it off the ground, if that is helpful as well...

Our LS did this fight about 20 mins ago. It was our 1st run as a Linkshell. There were 5 of us:

Chistos (WHM)
Forrester (SMN)
Twoofy (SMN)
Rekion (THF)
Jeffo (SMN)

She was a push over, took about 5 mins to kill and we got the drop!

Congratulations Forrester!!!

Camping it today my party got MPKed when a player dragged a mob down to where we were fighting and Diaga. We had a few links (2 weapons, 1 doll} but were holding them down, with me holding the two weapons with carby, a red mage holding the doll with sleep, and a ranger and ninja fighting shik himself.

If anyone on Seraph has seen Takato, hes a cheating ******* that gipped me out of a YYR, and didnt get the robe anyway {the party that claimed shik after me got the drop, smn was friend of mine}

So any news about the success of this petition? Did Sage Sundi respond personally?

I'm expecting good news.

Is Shikigami broken? This thing is driving me mad. So far we have claimed and killed it 12 times in a row and no drop >< We have had no TH, TH1 and TH2 and still no drop!

I believe that according to SE the drop rate is supposed to be 50%


I'm 0/9 on this damn thing now... and that's only counting the times when I've claimed it. So many SMNs on my server (Asura) have been camping this thing for over a year with no drop.
One of my SMN friends and I claimed it tonight with the help of some other buds, and she finally got it (I lost lot, but I'm just glad one of us got it after all this time). So I'm back at it again tomorrow! Wish me luck >.>

Okay, I've camped this NM about 20 times now, gotten the claim 5 times, and only one YY Robe has dropped from it. I have a new form of respect for summoners who have this item (eventhough most end game summoners do) because it is rather difficult to get.

This mob can be duo'd. I do not reccomend it though. I've seen a ninja and a redmage try and duo it and wipe. I've seen a ninja and a brd try and duo it and wipe. Trioing it with a Nin, Healer, Sleeper makes things much easier. If Shikigami is not being camped by anyone (which will happan once every now and then) the best place to fight him is on the southern run at G-9. You just wait for him to run by and agro him there by casting a spell. Mostly, you can fight him there without any agro, but even with agro, your only looking at a Killing Weapon agro. Shikigami does have a sleep spell, so if you only have one person with any form of healing magic, it may not be a bad idea to use poison potions during this fight. If you have more than one, dont worry about it. Also, keep baraera up at all times because he likes to use Aero III alot.

It spawns in its spawn window of 21:00 hours to 21:15 hours after its ToD. So once its window starts, spam widescan and track it onces its up. Most of the time, I've seen it spawn at the upper portion of the central ring. It will occasionally spawn in the lower portion as well, but I've seen significantly more spawns up top. It doesnt run around the ring all the time. Having claimed it 2 times where it wasnt camped, I was observing its movement alot. It will run back and fourth and stop for periods of time then change directions. Claiming it often requires two people. One, a mage, and the other, someone who can take hits. One possibility is to have the mage run in and agro it along w/ everything else, have the other person voke it and then have the mage attempt to zone all the adds. This will minimize links. Other possibility is to have someone run up and agro it casting spells, then have someone voke it and run it into an agro free area. This include the area near the bridge on the southern ring, and all the rooms along the top portion of the ring. These will minimize agro. He can also be fought right on the ramps on the east and west sides of Ro'Meave, but you will be risking massive agro.

Thats basically all I have to say. I wish you all luck on this guy.

Maybe solo?

Hello everyone... Just wondering if anyone know's the ToD (Time of Death) for the Shikigami Weapon on the Unicorn Server? Or maybe you know someone who can find out? Or if anyone has any openings in a LinkShell that does NM camping events... I would love to join. Any help and information would be so greatly appreciated! Summoner is the main reason that I play Final Fantasy XI and nothing would make my experience more full and complete than to be able to obtain this body armor!

Thanks all and good adventures to you! <(^.^)>

I've been after this thing for 2years now. I went there as 74rdm/blm, and with 2 LS friends Pld/war and War/nin 21:00hrs after Maintance on Kujata. I had to sleep him till the Pld arrived, which was no problem. We slowly took him down, and when we needed to rest, I just slept him and we rested up. Pretty easy fight for the three of us (we did run into aggro trouble, but we made it through). I'd like to thank Sanitary and Infinite for coming out and helping me with this NM. I'm so happy I got my robe now.

I killed this today with 75PLD 72NIN 75BLM 75BRD(me) and 72WHM. Thanks everyone who helped, but we did not get the drop. It was my first time killing it, and it was a lot easier than I thought. We were waiting on a 6th member, but he couldn't find his way. We had the NM slept for a couple of minutes waiting for him, and then the battle went smoothly, took about 5 minutes (wasn't really looking).

No drop though, :(

Remember to explain how aggro and claim works on NM
# Feb 25 2007 at 9:08 PM Rating: Decent

Anyone who recruits help for this NM, make sure you explain how this NM is claimed and aggro'd.

I got a tell from someone on my friend list about they are 0/7 on Yingyang Robe, and was wondering if she could use me for only a short time for TH2. Said OK and went out to the zone. Got there, and she wasn't there. Waited 15 minutes for all her helpers to get their, and then another 15 for her other character to get there. I was only needed for TH2 and nothing else. I was only 68, and had no EXP buffer.

I asked about pop time, no response from anyone. So I popped an oil, casted Tonko, and explored the area. I saw the person that wanted me there, and asked about pop time again. No answer, and she was moving. So I found a spot to stand where I could stand and not get aggro. All of a sudden, I see her cast dia, and the NM appears claimed by us. I start spamming <t>, and she spams her macro, and noone seems to be responding. So in 3-5 hits, she was dead and since I wasn't about to be 1-hit by this NM, it depops. All of a sudden, everyone is ******** at me for not claimming the NM or not helping the SMN. I had no freaking idea it turns invisible once claim is lost.

She sent me a tell after I disbanded and warp stick'd still ********* I explained to her I had no idea how this NM works and all that, and says mistakes happen. Over the next month, I got so many tells from members of her LS how I screwed them over, and other stuff like that. Such a joke that I get blaim for all that crap. Noone explained this NM to me, noone would responde to me in party chat (turns out they were all in the same LS, yet it was my fault for not having their HNMLS pearl), and I was only there as a TH2'er and nothing else.

Such crap, such BS, and such a nightmare. I finally removed them from my friends list after all the damn harassment. Btw, this all went down on Garuda.
