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

6 posts

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}

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


I'm 0/9 on this **** 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 **** harassment. Btw, this all went down on Garuda.

Yinyang Robe Obtained.

1 post
I thought I'd like to share my story and some opinions about how I camped this NM and finally obtained my Robe on Monday, February 5 at 5:40 a.m. EST ^_^

I had camped this NM on and off whenever it was convenient to do so for several months already. Now on my server (Asura) competition is pretty stiff and I did not have a big name HNMLS (i.e. Machina, Tribe, etc.) to assist me just close personal friends including RL friend. My friend Carreraa (THF75/NIN37) and I woke up early Monday morning and we decided to camp Kreutzet after his window closed in Cape Terrigan but Wind Weather (and consequently Kreutzet) appeared and it was too late before friends and I could arrive to assist him. So others claimed and killed our feathered friend but no drop I believe. That said, there had been a server maintenance on Friday 12:00 pm EST. And adding the 21:00hr-21:15hr offset for several periods meant that Shikigami must have spawned at roughly 4:00 a.m that Monday morning. So Carreraa (THF75/NIN37), Ludacarl (PLD75/NIN37), Saloben (RDM75/WHM37), and myself on my (BST73/WHM36) decided to just go check out Ro'Maeve and see whats up. Note we /sea several times and only one person in zone named Rickmade who was /anon if I recall. Hmmm, we get there I WS and scroll to the bottom of the list and lo and behold to my shock our good friend Shikigami Weapon is out for a morning speed-induced jog with no one hunting him!

I put him on Track, use Powder Boots, Silent Oil and start bookin it like a well-tuned feedback loop to where my compass indicated. I had him beside me in the middle of the top track but with about 4 weapons, and a doll in magic aggro range. I wait, and follow Shiki to the south track and he stopped in a place with no other weapons nearby. A Cure II <me> followed by /ja "Charm" <scan> and its claimed! I pop CourierCarrie and send her on Shiki and wait for my friends to arrive, which they did in very short order. Then I get a tell from Rickmade who informed me that he was camping it as BRD/RNG to get a ToD for his wife and he offers his help for the fight which was a rather pleasant and surprising gesture (^_^) and we accepted his offer. He sang his merry tunes for us and the fight went fairly smooth, with Carreraa THF/NIN tankin it like a champ (has merited Eva and good Eva build). Ludacarl, our heroic PLD/NIN ^_^ almost bit the dust but I Divine Seal + Curaga II them and with Saloben keeping up the other links asleep and doin well placed Cures throughout the fight, things got better from there. Shikigami died after a 5 min fight and it drops the Yinyang Robe! His cheap *** didnt drop Wind Crystal though and I had Signet on >< ( pft *grumble* ) :P

Anyhow, I'm glad that I'm done with this. But if you want this robe badly, just remember to remind your potential allies that its only a 15 min window (hence very convenient) and keep track of ToD religiously if possible. Also check out the very nice mini-guide Pergatory (Remedy LS) had written about camping this NM. Everything you need to know about whats needed is contained in that well written guide
  • http://www.killingifrit.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=109136

  • Just thought I'd relate my experiences via my specific story with this NM. Also please for the love of all thats good bring as many THFs as you can. Especially if you've had a low claim vs. camp attempt ratio. Total record for me is (2/2/12 : drop/claim/camp attempts). And both times I had my {Impossible to Gauge} THF friend Carreraa with me. And as many have stated, BLMs and/or RDMS for adds, and widescanners with Flee items during pop, and good tanks (blink-type or PLD) should be helping. So don't give up, please explain to potential helpers that its a short window and with persistance anyone can acquire this superb JSE robe.

    In closing I'd like to thank the following peeps: Carreraa, Ludacarl, Saloben, and Rickmade.

    I find it really unfair that maintenance happen every time I have found the Time of Death. Honestly I have notice that the maintenance usually happens early in the morning or late after noon for me US PST. I won't give up this easily however, I am just complaining because today they had a 2 hour emergency maintenance right after 30 minute after the window is open. This is the third maintenance that has happened during ToD of shikigami. I hate you SE -_-

    Alright now the story changes.
    When I was told about this "Spy vs Spy" crap involving Simo and cult, nobody said "maybe" he betrayed out trust.
    I was told with "Malcum X" style conviction that Simo had sold us out.
    I wrote what I was told by the people who were right there in the middle of the situation.
    Now everyone is saying saying "er.. um.. well no umm.. I was mistaken.. but your wrong for posting it"

    Well I say "Bullsh#t.. your wrong for saying it in the first place."

    If Simo had pulled this crap he would deserve to be exposed for it. As it stands now all that our collective efforts accomplished was to stir up alot of anger.
    Hmm.. Is there a moral to this story? I'll let yallz play with that one im done.

    doesnt matter now.

    I don't know if this was already posted but...

    Having carbuncle out (SMN main job or /SMN) while camping this is a smart idea, if you get aggro by Shikigami Weapon, carbuncle will take aggro and claim Shikigami for you, so no one will be able to steal!
    So easy..

    Twice now this has happened to me, I finally get the ToD. Once about 2 months ago and then again last night, both times now, there is an emergency maintenience .... SO I LOSE MY SPAWN TIME!!! I HATE SE I swear they follow me around wait until I am excited about something and boom they ***** it up!! I have been 75 for 7 months now, and still don't have this robe or any AF2 for that matter, 2x I got screwed by lousy link leaders of shells that I quit, and they gave it to someone that was there on another job and their SMN wasn't even high enough to use it. Now I am doing dynamis with a good shell. But, it won't matter cause I am retiring SMN as of this moment because I am sick of getting my hopes up on a getting this NM and not even getting a chance to claim it .....

    Well, being the summoner I am, i decided it was time to camp what i thought was a fun NM. Well at first it was fun but untill now its been 4 weeks since i started campin this and no drop has been put on my pool. Its a fun chase but disapointing to see your weeks of work not pay off. Even people who are there for the first time claim and get drop. Out of 30 days i claimed around 14 and no drop. Strange that everytime I claim there is no drop and everytime some 1 else claims, theres the drop. Its rare to see other parties other than mine not get the drop. Even got 1 week straight of claims and no drop, even with THF in pty. Dissapointed but Im not just about to give up. At least I am in summer vacation and will do wat it takes to get the robe. But just a warning, if you want to camp this NM come with the thought in mind that you need patience and a lot of luck. If anyone needs help after i get send me a tell on Sylph to Rockzero and ill b more than happy to join the chase.

    I had just camped him the previous night. SMN Asher, BLM Synergy, BLM Mchief, NIN Vegnagon, and me (BST64). Robe was going to me as I have a 70 SMN, Asher already had one, as did Synergy for his SMN. This particular spawn I saw him pop, and was, naturally unclaimed, so Vegnagon provoked it and I charmed it. He had aggroed a WHM in a different party and the new enmity role came into play ._., thier PLD voked and Flashed and got the claim.

    Already disheartend, I find out that it drops as well, leading me to believe that tomarrow will most likely mean no drop. We'll have to see...

    Well next ToD comes around and we gather together. I see a higher BST/SMN there like myself and talk to him, to find out hes my competition. Good guy and was glad I didn't have to be bitter if I lost claim^^. Asher, Synergy, and Vegnagon were enroute or there. Mchief was out of the loop. I get my invite from Asher. Vegnagon was AFK so I was getting worried. How do we kill him without a tank?...

    A few minutes go by and I see another person's name added to the list, not Vegnagon but Junket, a person I have seen around alot on my server. I was relived because I knew he was either a PLD or a NIN, either way it was tremendous. Then another name joins a its Thefro, a THF no less. TH is covered, its all coming together. Just need the claim...

    I learned from the night before, i did learn. BST/WAR was the game this time, Charm and Provoke to take hate. "4 minutes till window" Synergy said. Vegnagon joins us. I spam widescan like no tomarrow. First pop goes by and nothing. Second pop comes and bam, hes up. Near us too. I try to tell Asher to follow me but I can't really type when I'm that..neverous? I don't know the right word for it. Junket came as PLD and ran past me while I was running to Shiki. "Junmkl" I jumbled "cast nea me" but it was to late..The BST I had befriended had spawned him, but it wasn't over yet.

    Thanks to yesterdays disappointment, my sense was born anew. I charmed him as he came up. Yellow. I thought I had failed...Provoke! Red. Ours.

    PLD goes to work after I take a heafty sum of damage from him in two hits(350ish I believe)
    Synergy was on the other side and ran twoards us, but he had gotten aggro ><, Syn goes down ;;. I'm wondering at this point if we can take him. Vegnagon was fighting a aggro'd Killing weapon and Asher was running lower on MP...

    Syn rises to the land of the living! That little scamp had Reraise II from a hairpin. He is still weakened though and I hoped he would not die again. He joins the fray... Its coming together I thought...

    Mchief shows up! We are not at full power, I disband and join up with him and Ally with Asher. Syn pounds away with manafont. and Mchief follows suit, without the use of Manafont. Shiki goes down.

    I have the treasures screen open as we had a wind crystal from the Killing weapon Vegnagon had fought. The moment of truth...

    Yinyang robe falls into the pool. I'm happy. 8k from 71 and I can level into this. Thank you Junket, Vegnagon, Thefro and Mchief. and a special thanks to Synergy and Asher for making this all possible for me. Without them I would have had no resources to claim and kill him. Happy Hunting everyone.

    I can also confrim that Shiki is ALWAYS last on your list.

    Can I just say, you are the type of person I hate.
    For one, you can't wear this equip that lvl 75's also camp. Why do you deserve it more when they cam wear it right away where as you still have a day or more till you can?

    Another thing, both times you never popped Shikigami. Anyone who has camped Shikigami knows that both popping and then claiming is difficult and that any moron can follow others and claim when THEY pop. If you pop him, you deserve him, I believe this is a type of thing that must be fixed, when hes popped you should have the claim. Don't say "well it's not my fault they got there first and popped him just as I was going to" because you went there as a BST/WAR with the intent on stealing him.

    I hope you're proud of your Yinyang robe, because you certainly don't deserve it as much as your "befriended" BST who you stole it from.

    Thats not a very good reason to dislike someone because they camped something that they can't wear. Thats...just ridiculous.

    I am a level 71 SMN right now, and I will be 75 before the week is out. Just because I can't wear the item yet, means I can't camp it? I'm not getting the grasp of that concept. Do I have to be a 75 SMN for 2 years in order to camp this?

    Shikigami is no different when it comes to claiming. How does getting him to show his hide mean that hes yours? If that was the case he would pop red, would he not? As for you saying that any moron can follow him, sure. Anyone can follow anyone with widescan when camping ANY NM. NMs have always required fast action and quick wits, which is what I had. Thats why I got the claim. Provoke and other insta-job abilities and quick casting spells have been and always will be the key to victory.

    No intent on "stealing" him, I told Asher to follow me to the T if I started moving, but he didn't follow for whatever reason. I had plans on my party popping him, don't worry about that.

    We didn't try to cure bomb the claim the first time to try to steal it or use any dirty tatics to have them lose their claim.

    Do you not have a Yinyang robe or had shared experiances with a 70- SMN getting one before you? You can be bitter, but why be bitter at me? You sound like I got the robe just to fraps me dropping it or something. I had every intent on using this thing and have every intention to put it to use.

    I took the time to, as well as the others that helped me to take down this NM, doesn't that entitle me to be a contender when it comes to this NM?

    There is alot of take into consideration when you evaluate this situation, which you just did. Unfortunatly, your post oozes ignornace for the situation. Know who or what you are angry at before you rant. You attack my being without any prior knowleadge of myself or anyone else that I talked about. Do you see what I'm saying yet?

    From what you are telling me, you're going to have to grow up when it comes to camping NM, thats how the NM game is played. People know that. I did, my crew did, and so did the competition.

    The BST that was with the other team is also, not a 75 SMN, so you can yell at him too, I guess. I still talk to him and see his progress on it. Hes gotten the claim a few times since then and I'm happy for him that he can get the same chance that I got.

    Yes, I am proud of my Yinyang robe and I will be for a long time. And you are wrong, I deserve it just as much.

    This is just a story about one smn's journey with this horrid nm...
    I must admit, this is the worst nm in FF's history for me at least.
    I am officially 0/18/40 on this horrible monster (0 drops, 18 claims, 40 camps).
    Thats right, even with TH this mob has dropped ZERO times for me. So let me clarify, a SMN killing it by NO MEANS makes drop happen.
    I have even soloed shiki three times now and its quite easy provided any 75smn stock up on Yagudo drinks or even melon drinks and of course provided they avoid aggros/links. There is a perfect little spot NW of zone on the second row were shiki can be safly soloed.
    This mob has officially made me quit smn after three years of maining it.
    GL everyone who has yet to get to try this mob and if you're on Phoenix, gimmie a holler if you have any questions that you cant find online, id be glad to help.

    I don't post here much, but figure I'd throw this up here for a couple reasons.

    1. It might be helpful to others.
    2. I'd like to shout out to Tigerlilly, Khepri, Lothar, Revann, and Onilink on the Alexander server for helping beat this mob down for Tiger's Robe. Oh and Alliekat for the D2s afterwards! ^.^

    The mob spawned at roughly 21:05 after ToD the previous day which happened to be early in the morning for me >.<; Our party setup was 75THF(me), 70SMN, 69WHM, 70MNK, 73RNG, 75SMN. When he first popped, our RNG ran over to the pop point which happened to be about 10 feet from where us and the competition were standing. Our SMNs started casting bar spells while having Carby out to get him to show himself. He did pop and both Carbies went after to Weapons that had aggro'd as well. By this point, the competition was going after it too and spamming spells. I ran right up to and hit Steal on it. It didn't do anything to I spammed it again. Still nothing, I had then decided trying mug but hit my Steal macro one more time. Third time's a charm and I claimed it with Steal.

    So, with all the updates on mob claiming, it might be safe to say that SE did make this mob one of the NMs that isn't claimable instantly. There probably was about 3 seconds before it first appeared and when I was able to claim. The other group had aggro'd a doll and was busy taking care of that while we got started on the NM. We had the WHM and one of the SMNs zone their mobs, while the four of us continued with the NM. I was the main tank as thf/nin and had equipped all my emnity gear. The fight was pretty rough. I have capped evasion and the guy was eating through my shadows pretty quickly.

    At about 70%, Shiki double attacked, and hit me with a Diaga after I cast Utsu:Ni and stuck a Poison too while both my recast timers for Utsusemi were down. Got down to about 250 hp and had to Perfect Dodge. Another problem was Shiki seems to like AoEs. While Perfect Dodge was up, I popped a Pear Au Lait, antidote and 4 Hi-Potions+3 (which were cheap because of Assault) and threw my Utsu: Ni back up.

    About 50%, our RNG started spamming sleep bolts because the mages were down due to links. Mages Rereaised, got some mp back and were set. I held hate on Shiki for the most part while this was going on, till Slug Shot went off. I Sneak Attacked and tried to get it back once the RNGs shadows went down and Sleep Bolts were getting resisted. RNG went down, so I started spamming sleep bolts. I got enough to stick for the whm to raise the rng. A bomb popped right on top of the RNG though soon as he accepted and wiped him instantly. At this point, I decided to straight up tank while using sleep bolts only when shadows and Utsu timers were down.

    At 20%, mages were out of mp, and one SMN was down. After another AoE, our WHM hit us with a Benediction, which didn't pull hate. I had the MNK engage and Hundred Fists. I popped off a Ni soon as he pulled hate, then hit it with a SA+Shark Bite. The MNK then followed with a SA+Dragon Kick. I know they don't SC but it dropped the health on Shiki pretty good. From then on, the MNK and I just took it out as fast as we could. I managed to keep hate to the end and finished the fight with 900 hp. I think overall, we suffered 6 deaths from all the add-ons and AoE moves/spells. The daggers I was using were a Heart Snatcher in main hand and Stun Knife off-hand.

    I got 70 exp with a party of 6, so I'm guessing the mob would have checked as Tough, maybe level 76~77? I get the vibe that the mob has an upped difficulty when it is going to drop. No way for me to confirm this, but it seems to be the case after reading other posts.

    I'd highly recommend a RDM and/or a BLM for this fight, that way the mob can be enfeebled, debuffed, and stunned.
    The level 70 SMN Blood Pacts were only hitting for 100ish on the Weapon, so probably best to save the mp for Cures. I believe the 75 SMN used Predator Claws, Spinning Dive, and Flaming Crush.
    Shikigami was hitting me for about 120-160 as a 75 THF/NIN.

    Congrats to Tigerlilly, Alexander Server, on her shiny new Robe!

    last night I a mnk/war and some friends one a smn that's been doing this for a month and only gotten the mob once and didn't get the drop camped him.

    Well, the mob poped and chi blasted and log said <me> chi blasts shi... takes 0 dmg. Well I would think that was a tag my pt thought that was a tag; however, it invisibles and run, warps, whatever off and another pt gets the mob.

    Has anybody any info on what could have happen. It did have green letters above it. I'm thinking either one of the 3 above. I'm hoping it's just an odd mob and you got to get it when it drops green letters. Otherwise, I might become the Incredible Hulk jump to Japan...

    I havent seen him link me yet. I've been out there a couple times, and despite following him on Widescan w/ a Killing weapon on me, he didnt aggro. From my experience tho,if you lose claim on him (say another group wipes) you cannot claim him then. He will always put up his invis first, and then you've got to magic aggro him. Same thing happened to me, one group wiped. Voke from mine goes off, Shadowbind goes off and he puts up invis like it never happened. Just an odd mob He may link, but he certainly didnt link me when he ran past me.

    Hello everyone! I just received my Robe last night and thought I would share my experiences.

    I camped him 4 days in a row. Do to his relatively good drop rate, if you can claim him successive times, you have a good shot of getting the drop without too much pain. My group won the claim 1st and 2nd time (no drops, popped in the west then center) lost the claim the 3rd time (robe dropped, center pop) and then claimed him the 4th time (robe dropped, eastern pop). The only tiime there was serious competition was that 3rd time. First and Fourth, my group was the only one there.

    My setupts were: 1. smn(me) rdm rng mnk/whm! The mnk tanked and it was totally fine. He popped in a safe area and we had zero links. I never ran out of mp and the rdm did convert once (he is a taru) but he finished with tons of mp. 2. smn whm nin Again, we had no links. The battle took a bit but we finished it without any scary moments. 4. smn smn blm whm nin thf Ironically enough, this was the hardest fight. He popped in a crowded area and all of the mages died at least once. In retrospect we should have pulled him into one of the rooms and fought him there.

    The links really are the toughest part of the fight. If you can control/avoid those you really are set. I had a mnk tank him! Garuda also did very well against him all 3 times and (minus Smite of Rage) he did not hit her too hard. He hasnt cast any ga spells that I've seen, but he will use Ancient magic and Tier IV, III spells and cure himself. I believe he can be silenced, but don't quote me on that. All other debuffs landed on him nicely.

    All in all, it is quite a fun fight and it usually isnt too hard to get friends to help because his pop time is so consistent (21 hours, 10 minute window) and you can be in an out in 20 minutes. Clearing pop areas can be helpful, but he tends to jump around a lot, so don't plan on a clear zone. We got lucky the first time and he popped where we were clearing (leveling npcs ^^), but the other times he jumped around.

    Happy Hunting everyone :)

    Okay I just got the robe to finally drop after months of searching, and I would like to share some information.
    The easiest way to get ToD is to wait for a maitnence, he DOES NOT POP immediately, but he will pop 21 hours to 21 hours 15 minutes later. What we normally did was we would have the ranger search him on widescan, when he pops he will yell out pos's while running. A ninja gets a KILLING WEAPON (the other kinds are mages and you do not want that) down to 10% and under, and leaves him like that. The ninja runs around with the Killing Weapon following because all weapons do not link EXCEPT THE SHIKIGAMI WEAPON! so if you see Shikigami come uninvisible, claim him immediately. The ranger will take down the rest of the Killing Weapon as the Ninja tanks Shikigami. What mages and summoners do is follow the positions given out by rangers, continuing to spam magic, they agro him, claim, and RUN TO ZONE! then zone back and continue fight. Also you cannot target Shikigami while he is invisible, you have to agro him or link him. No he cannot run through walls, but he is constantly moving and has a big pop range. This monster is very accurate and uses an AoE stun move quite often so keep your ninja healed. That is basicly all the information I can give you, good luck on the fight and I hope it drops ^^.

    I must have the worst luck camping this guy... been there about 90+ times claimed him a grand total of 9 times. Out of the 9 times i have got 0 robes. Got alot of good information on camping him and finding ToD.... Start with the ToD. I found it best to go about your normal bussness and just do /sea romaeve every hour or so. Youll know if he's up because you'll see alot of /anon and or tons of smns. Getting claim is tricky but i find it best to take the whole left side of the first 2 tiers. Starting on the first tier put 2 ppl in then little tunnel preferable if its a nin and a smn. Next camp should be that ramp leading down to the second tier. Again smn and any other job that can tank would be good. Last spot you should cover is up on the steps of the left sides tier. I find you claim better up there so i would put most your force up there. Now for gettting ready for claim. About five mins from pop time clear your area of all mobs starting with dolls then go to the weapons just incase he pop you'll get his aggro if your fighting a weapon. Perfect claim is smn because he has Carby for claim when you cast magic. What i do is buff up then recast stoneskin and run around a bit to cancle it. I repeat that till he's claimed. Another good thing to do is have someone run around the two tiers just to see if anyone claimed him. If you have rng and he says it poped and your not at pop DONT MOVE. Nm runs around. Most ppl try to run to him and by that time he has moved to another spot. Fighting is cake if you have good healer and good tank. Hope this helped out a bit. ^^
    I will show you all that i have masterd.... FEAR, PAIN, HATERED, POWERRRR.... This is the art of RUIN. 0o0 (-.-) 0o0

    I can't attest to the viability of this information, as I'm not going to go through the effort to prove it. I am a 75 blm and a 72 smn, and I have been camping Shikigami for about 5 weeks, killed him 6 times total, and did not receive my robe until last night (I was playing as 72 SMN). The previous 5 times that my linkshell and I killed it no one was playing as a SMN. I went as my BLM so I could help stave off any links with Sleepga II. Now with this drop rate allegedly being only 50%, and we only got the drop 1/6 times, if the 50% drop rate is correct, than I believe the robe will not drop unless there is a SMN in the party/alliance (at least that's how it happened to us). Again, I cant say if that is 100% correct or not, if anyone else has had a similar experience please post.
