Contents [hide]

General Information

  • Spawned by clicking on the Fallen Egg that appears at (I-6), (J-6), (L-7), (L-10), and (L-11) in La Theine Plateau.

    • Clicking on the Fallen Egg may, in place of spawning Nihniknoovi, produce a Bird Egg, or result in the message "There is a broken egg on the ground here. Perhaps there is a nest in the boughs of this tree.

    • Regardless of what result occurs, the Fallen Egg will disappear and respawn 5 minutes later in another location.

Nihniknoovi's Special Attacks

  • Wing Cutter: Frontal cone AoE Wind based magic damage.

  • Helldive: Single target physical damage.

Historical Information

In most western Native American mythology, the Nihniknoovi is said to be a large, ferocious hawk that would attack humans and carry them off to its nest in the mountains, where it would then devour them.

Pretty much similar to everyone else. I was leveling my 16 SAM and saw it, didnt bother to look it up and examined the Fallenegg. NM spawned and whiped me in seconds. So I homepointed, switched to DRG75/WHM37 tele-holla and found 1 FallenEgg, got a birg egg, found a second and popped NM again. Jump, High Jump, Smack, dead. I'm guessing it has a lot of health if it wasnt dead from two jumps, but I was naked except for my weapon. Got the pendant. It was more revenge than anything.

So, out of boredom, I'm levelling one of my mules out in La Theine, and come across "BirdEgg" on the ground (at the southern spawn point). Never heard of it before, don't remember seeing Nihni in ANY of the NM lists so it didn't really mean much to me. I clicked on it, got an egg, and all of a sudden, the text comes up and pop goes the NM... Being 20WAR/10MNK, I expected to die, triggered Mighty Strikes, and by the time it wore, the NM was down to about 50%... I wasn't far from 50% myself, tho it wasn't attacking much faster than a normal Akbaba in the area, just hittin for 10+ per hit. I countered a few, WSed a few times, and poof, I had myself a Van Pendant, which beats the **** outta the stupid Justice Badge I'd stuck on the character for the DEF boost... got 52 exp as well with my Chariot Band active (yes, this is a mule, and I went cheap with him, so those givin me crap over the gimp ring or neck piece can sod off).

No clue as to 100% drop rate, I've seen plenty of other R/E drops NOT be 100%, lame as that is. Made me a happy camper tho, for once. If I'd'a been actively seeking the NM n drop, I'd'a prolly never seen it, or died, or not gotten the drop... :p

Be well n stuff

I accidentally popped this whilst soloing LFP on Pld14...

Seriously, it would have been a doable fight, maybe long, but he only hit me for single didgits - easy enough.

Problem is he attacks at over 9000 mph. Like he has a constant hundred fists. Naturally I bit the dust after a while, might have gotten him down to 70%~HP, If I could be bothered I'd go back and hurt him on my main, but yeah, shouldn't pose any problems for 20-30+ I would guess, just watch out for fast attacks :p

I just soloed it as lvl 18 PLD. The trick is to use invincible when you get really low. Then you cure yourself to full. As long as you can last that you'll be good.

I'm Currently at L-11 in La Thine PLatue, and the Fallen Egg spawned twice here, First time i got a Bird Egg, Second time i got the Bird egg and the NM, Dropped Item. so i am assuming its 100%(also cause its R/ex) I fought a Bat around the area afterwards, and it never became Paralyzed. which leads me to believe it was just our Friends WS blade: Retsu that did that. Welll good Luck and happy hunting all who are out to get this, Im gonna go test it on my Ninja

I found 6 eggs, 3 of which were Bird Eggs, 3 of which were just cracked eggs.
It was on the 3rd bird egg i found the NM, it came down after i picked the egg up.
Funnily enough, it was where i'd found 2 other eggs, 1 bird egg, and 1 cracked egg, also the first place i found it.
Spawned for me in the northern-most point of the 3.

Van Pendant dropped, so i'm happy =)

ok i spent 12 hours (nonstop) of finding the FallenEgg clicking it... heres what i got:
notiong:90%
bird egg overall:3
this thing: 0!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i hate this thing.... and heres my lil story y:
After spending 12hours of waisting money on chocoboos and running back and forth... Nitrontwo (me) was rather tired. Having came in contack with a beastmaster in the lowest point where the egg can spawn, I ask him to tell me if it appears down there ever. Well after talking to him for about 4 hours he lvls and i give up and am about to the outpost in jugnar forest. He took a last look around for me and told me there was a FallenEgg there and asked me if i wanted it. I replied no since i stayed up all night looking for this dang thing, and told him to hit it. Sure as sh*t it spawns. The Beastmasters pet was quickly subdued, and then it began working on him. I zone back into La thiene Plateu to c he had about 50hp and lowering quickly. I make haste down there about past the white stick out on the creg of holla, he dies and tells me it began to go back to were it poped at (idr pos). I rush there to find nothing, run around and around... nothing. I gop over revive the poor beastmaster whom now dlvled because of me, so i decide to relvl him and b on my way.
This is my story of waisting 12hours on this thing ><;;;;;;;;;;
gotta get the pendent not for a tank job that i am going to choose
GL those who want to try for him... u will need it

ok so heres how it goes if it doesn't spawn on the first "Fallen egg" you find, a new one will spawn in 5 min ~I recomend you grab a chocobo and hang at one of the egg spots till 5 min are up~ THEN once it spawns you have 5 min to find the new "Fallen egg" (idk if it can spawn at the same spot as the previous one you found, but it didn't happen to me)after you find the new egg you then have another 5 min till a new spawns, REPEAT these steps untill it spawns at one of the 3 egg spots, I believe the Van pendant drop is a rare/ex 100% drop I also say a stop watch is quite nice for this NM hunt.

1/1

It is possible for the egg to respawn in the same area. It spawned in the southern area for me 3 times in a row.

Since this drop was not the first on my wish-list I did not read these posts very carefully. Thought it could be a fun thing to do later. As usual when I was looking for parties I soloed some Funguars and Thickshells not far from the zone to the Dunes, this time as WHM 18. (Good for skills at that point). Found a "Fallen Egg" and thought that the NM only spawn after you have gotten at least 3 of those eggs. Cool, I thought, I do one now. Whoops. The mad bird poped and killed me.
Went back as MNK 28. The bird and the egg was gone, but I found a new egg up among the threes close to the Jugner zone and got the bird again. The pendant may be usable if I need to tank and for weeker jobs when I am raising skills. (Well even for skilling up guarding for MNK I guess it's very good; you don't want to many critical hits hit you if all other equipments are lowering youre stats. It's great to take punishment when doing that but in even doses, thanks.)

Alright, here's what happened, i'm walking from Jugner forest to wherever and at L-7 of LaTheine, i see "Fallen Egg" so i go to it, pick it up..and keep on going
then some bird attacks me out of nowhere with some weird name.. anywho.. it's weak, but has a lot of health.. dropped the Van Pendant. Sweet.

yeah, just went after this tonight as 32WHM/16BLM while hoppin back and forth checkin Jugner and Valkurm for weather patterns for SMN. Friend came as 47RDM. It did maybe 15 damage to me before I blinded it. Melee didn't do much damage (go figure when you're usin an Eremite's Wand). Not much I can say about the spawn except what has already been suggested: grab a chocobo in between spawns and run around until you find it again. good luck to any beginners goin for it

I'm confused as to how this thing is judged on spawn. I've checked 5 eggs in a row with no result except "An egg has fallen here. There must be a nest up in the boughs of the tree."

It's an empty spot on my NM checklist. It must be taken care of....

I've spawned & killed this bad boy 4 times: the Van pendant dropped every time (I turned in the pendant between kills to the R.K. in Ronafaure).

To spawn him, touch a Fallen Egg. A new egg spawns exactly 5 minutes afterwards. You have 5 minutes after the spawn to find and touch the next egg: if you find it more than 10 and less than 15 minutes after touching the last one you will recieve a Bird Egg.

I took him down easily with both THF 18 and WAR 19. I don't recommend taking him with mages below 20 - 23, he hits often and hard enough to keep you from casting efectively.

False. Just tested your time theory.

I checked a Fallen Egg, got a bird egg, used Ancient Circle (recast 10 minutes).

Found another egg 7 minutes later, and didn't get an egg or NM. Infact, as I'm typing this, I still have 20 seconds left on my recast.

Nothing. It adds to your nation's Conquest points tho, so if you're San Dorian, it's a waste of time, considering it takes a helluva lot for Bastok or Windurst to gain control of the Ronfaure. Also, I presume the original poster to mean that he traded it to the other NPC, not the RK at the outpost, since thats who takes items...

BTW, trading items to other outposts is a great way to assist your nation's conquest... (something I get a bit of a kick out of. When I quit, I'm considering taking everything I have down to Sarutabaruta and seeing if I can't win the region for San d'Oria for a period)

I was soloing with my 17 thf by the pond near the Dunes zone and didn't even know about this NM. Last night I logged by the little pond and when I logged on this morning, I was killing fungar and worms and gobs and suddenly I see a "Fallenegg". I run over it to and touch it and obtain a bird egg....and then it says "The owner of the nest appears in a fury!" or watever. Point is, I had about half health and this ***** smoked me. I got him down to about half life and then he critical hit me about twice in a row. He hits fast too. Wish I woulda known about this guy before touching that ******' egg.

I just killed the Nihniknoovi today i counted his health. i am not sure if an NM's health changes in different spawns but i used mighty strikes (WAR30)/MNK15) so i could finish him and get back to lvling PLD12/WAR6 and he had at most (for me) 945 HP. I hope this helps anyone else out there.

Took him down on sunday with no trouble at all. He did the same amount of damage as the mobs in the same area. This means a NIN or PLD around 20-22 could probably take him no trouble (with their own respective spells). Normal defense as well so there shouldn't be any problem with damaging him. He had around 895 HP for me. This is when being a THF (we use low-damage weapons) comes in handy, i.e. gauging HP. Go DoT.
He wont spawn for me =(

I tried yesterday to get the bird to spawn. The first 3 times I got the egg, I only received the bird egg but no spawn. However, after that, every egg I picked up, I received a message saying "there is a broken egg on the ground, there might be a nest in the boughs of this tree." after like 10 more times of this I called it quits.

Remember Random is Random. you can not predict it. Keep trying it. You will get it soon. It took me a while too. Just hop on a choco from Holla Crag and ride around until you find it again. I spent 7 hours for a lotterry pop. I knew the Drop was 100% which is why i waited, keep at it i know you can do it.

I got this yesterday while camping most of the beginner NMs. This was the last on my list but was an item I was really looking forward to. I went to La Thiene and checked the first location (top-most one on the map above...past the stone for SMN quest)/ Checked all around and didn't see any egg. I then walked down to the middle spawn point on the map, near Junger Forest zone and saw the Fallen Egg. I touched it, got a bird egg and then it said something like "The owner of the nest appears in a fury" (dunno exactly). But Nihniknoovi spawned after that was said, killed it and got drop. This has to be the best neck piece for a tank in dunes in my opinion.

lol my post was too long...
that is a list of the quasi new NMs that are from the n00b zones, 3 main krags and 3 dungeons.. all under lvl 25.. all 100% drop.. the noob zone ones under 2hr spawn.. others simple things to do to spawn them... this is a good list of "Intro to NM Hunting" Enjoy ^^

*I originally tried this NM as 17smn/8whm and got him down to 25% health. He was the 2nd toughest of my listed NMs (NM orc in FG was toughest). So under lvl 20 maybe a tough fight for this birdbrain.

Respawn time

Ok, heres the deal. Me and a friend was after this bird and the information is correct about 5mins between each "Fallen Egg" spawn. However, once you kill the NM, it takes 30mins for the "Fallen Egg" to start spawning again.

m(~,~)m I hope this helps for people going in groups to hunt.

P.S. He is very quick. My friend is a MNK and did "hundred fists" for the **** of it and it kept up the pace lol.
Birdie engaged!

I decided to hunt this bird a bit for my Samurai, as there is not much else that is even decent for a neck piece at low levels. Took me 5 tries, but it spawned finally.

To any low people who want to hunt this thing, it has insane attack speed. It's almost like it has a Hundred Fists effect always active. Lots of critical hits from it too. So just be careful.

I was a WHM56/BLM28, so I had no trouble, but still, be careful. It's one fast birdie ^^

And I got the drop as well. 1/1 doesn't prove 100% drop rate of course, but just thought I'd add that.

Origin of it's name.

For those of you curious as to the origin of this bird's name, it stems from Kawaiisu (Native Americans) mythology. The Kawaiisu were an offshoot of the Chemehuevi. They lived in the Tehachapi Mountains and maintained possession of the Tehachapi Pass, the Walker Basin and a few of the southern affluents of the Kern River (Mohave Desert). Kawaiisu legend tells of a fierce hawklike creature, known as Nihniknoovi, who carries people to his mountain home and eats them.

Heres some more info:

Spawn conditions :

Will appear randomly when "Fallen egg" point is checked, you may or may not get an bird egg at each point you check. If the bird does not spawn, the point will re-spawn within 5 min ('ish) somewhere else. It spawned on the third point I checked.

Spawn location :

I have seen the point appear at I,J-6, L-7, on La-Theine plateu.

Monster:

This mob attacks quite quickly, but did no dammage to me at lvl 59 as a PLD, so I won't even hazzard a guess at lvl. It has approximately 900 hp, and as a bird, I would assume it would be weak to percing weapons.

The pendant dropped on the first fight, so I assume it is a 100% drop (from other information as well).

Good luck, and good hunting

I got the J-6 spawn on my way to Jueno. I checked the Fallen Egg point and recieved a Bird Egg and Nih spawned. Got the Van Pendant after he fell and from what I hear it seems to be 100%.

Drop is worthless though. Does anyone know of anything the drop is good for? Skill ups, quest, synth?

I woudn't say the drop is worthless, theres not much else at this level for neck wear, and Def 3 isn't all together horrible.

The bigger question is how does the -1% crit hit rate work. I can see two possible ways this functions.

1) If a crit hit is scored, there is a 1% chance of avoiding it. In this case yes, the added effect is somewhat useless

2) The MOB has a 5-10% chance of scoring a critical hit each attack. If it is -1% from this base crit hit percentage, then you will see somewhere between a 10-20% reduction in critical hits, which is quite significant.

More experimentation is needed I would say.

I looked for this a few times. From what I hear the egg might not even spawn the bird sometimes.
Its drop doesnt look all that useful though

Nihniknoovi is (also) found in La Thiene Plateau when targeting a FallenEgg underneath a tree at certain locations.
