If Colorful Leshy is also left alone, Defoliate Leshy May spawn.

Only pops if the placeholder Leshy is left up. Leshy drop nothing that cannot be gained from other treants.

The NQ NM is Colorful Leshy and drops Harvest Earing. If left up long enough (assumed 24 hrs) it will change to the HQ NM "Defoliate Leshy", which in addition to having a higher drop rate can also drop a Heims Earing (the same one you can get from assault).

Colorful Leshy can take up to 24hrs to pop (has been seen sooner), but if the placeholder is disturbed in any way the timer will reset. You cannot damage or even agro it, it WILL reset the pop timer.

After catching it multiple times I've found it can spawn as early as 6 hours from time of last death, but thats very very very unlikely, usually pops between 12 and 16hrs from last kill.

Just watched on my amoureaux's screen as he happened to run into this guy. He beat him as 75PLD/37WAR (Yram on Caitsith). It was kind of close but he totally had it, as well as the little Lechachikha that joined in. He got nothing for a drop, though; not even a measly earth crystal! He did get 50 exp though... hahaaa!

ran into this guy unexpectedly while gettin fomor hate up..... he didnt aggro me so im not so sure bout him being aggressive.[69 bst/nin]
anyways, i checked him & seen he was a nm, so i figured id give him a try... i wasnt expecting him to be so tough though[as in tons of hp] i didnt engage myself till he was at 15% hp. i just kept throwing saplings at him continuously [around 30-40...not joking] i used every sapling in the area prolly 3 times... btw saplings DO link to him but leshys DONT. if some1 says other wise, they dont know what they are talking about. [unless they are low lvls & leshys are just aggroin them...but i dont think they agg, but im not sure]
anyways fight took about 1/2 hour to solo, and i got Harvest Earing to drop! ^^ not 2 bad for just runnin by & gettin by chance. i did take a few hits from him when searchin for new pet, so i used my signal pearl [have on soothing healer] to keep hp up so i would be good to go once i decided to join in the fight. after tossing a fresh sapling i would rest for the remaining few seconds 2 keep my npc's mp up as well...
FYI: most saps will only last about 1 minute vs him & wont get 100 tp so dont worry with "Sic" manuvere

Ffxiclopedia says it spawns approx every 21-24 hours.. I killed him last night around 7pm and then again at 3pm today. I thought it would spawn 21-24 hours after TOD, or is it 21-24 after it spawns?

Farming fomors for their subligar when this bad boy popped.

I just saw something red in the trees which threw me off.
Thought the sky was turning red and was wondering why so I went to take a closer view and there he was. The red I saw was his leaves.

Took him down and got rosewood log but no earring which is why I turned him into toothpicks.

He has 10,000hp I believe.

I was out farming mistletoes (RDM/THF) from the leshys and logged out for ~7 hours. When i came back, i resumed killing the leshys and the little guys that link. Stoneskin, phalanx, ice spikes, enfire, refresh, prot 4.
I was watching TV at the time, occasionally glancing back to the TV that the ps2 is on while farming to see if i needed to re-apply something or find another Leshy.
I didn't even notice i killed this thing until i saw the drops pop up, Harvest Earring and two rosewood logs.

Killed this for the first time on Midgard yesterday. We were running to log out at another NM there and decided to run by and check Colorful Leshy...wonder of wonders, he was sitting there. Now, I have no idea how long he'd been there, but I made a note of the conditions:

8/20/1003
Lightningsday 21:48
Waxing Crescent (21%)

The sky when we killed it was like the picture above - dark and overcast. I believe it was thundering at the time.

Also, I can confirm what the previous poster said - does not aggro, but links with saplings like other treants. (But it won't link with other trees.)

I thought it might be possible the spawn is connected to the Vana'diel month, like Noble Mold. (I HATE YOU NOBLE MOLD 0/4 ><**) But I think people've killed it during the second month as well. If it's fall-winter, it would be a long time of possible pops, unlike Noble Mold's 4 months.

Anyone else know the day of the week/weather they killed it in?

Solo'd this guy yesterday as 75 DRG/WHM, no buffs, strictly DD gear (except for my desert rope for mp). I should have treated it more seriously since once or twice he got me down to less than 200 hp and I had to spam Dia for HB. He hits pretty hard and pretty fast so be prepared. Apart from that he doesn't do anything much out of the ordinary. Nothing that actually hit me anyway. Didn't get anything apart from 20 xp ><;;.

I went to the ??? for Powerful Rope quest as my SMN, and I saw Colorful Leshy. Figured hey I can carby kite him if I cant kill, so I had carby attack him, and he did decent dmg (about 120-150 a hit) but also took a lot. so I ran away, summoned Leviathan, did a spinning dive and barely saw his HP budge after taking 1200 dmg. So back to carby kiting, well while I was running across the area, I see a person. I figure ok w/e hes just getting ToD or doing the quest, so I continue. Well when I get to the other side, before carby steals hate I get a little treant bulb sapling thing on me as a link. Well, I make carby attack the link, knowing it'll go down before the NM. So I run to the other side, and desummon carby so I can get leviathan out, thinking I'll BP the link and then return to fighting the NM. So after summoning Leviathan, I notice only the link came. I killed the link, ran over, and would you look at that, he stole my NM. He watched the link, knew what I was doing, and took him. I had Colorful Leshy at about 65% HP. This really made me mad, concidering I had worked on killing him, and he said nothing to me. After killing Colorful Leshy he ran to Tavnazian Safehold and put a Harvest Earring on the AH...

Be careful who is around, if you lose claim for 5 sec some incredibly rude person may steal it. What happened to waiting until the person dies? *sighs*

Btw, his name is Tatsuro on Remora. Give em **** ;)

Just killed this with a 72 DRG, 69 WHM (me) last night. Wasn't hard at all. Got an earring and a rosewood log.

I can clarify that the sky DOES change color since as soon as he spawned it changed. Also several 75's came running to the spawn to watch us kill it, so they must have known what the sky changing color meant.

Hope this helps anyone looking to get this earring without buying it.

I killed this thing on Asura with a 74 THF... He hits HARD and has alot of life. We came up to level our NPCs and this guy was just standing there. After a quick discussion about what to do we started at him.

Got the Earring and a Rosewood and Ebony log. Pretty hard fight. I had to manafont. ^^;

He is definitely not a 2hr pop. We killed Leshys and the saplings for 3 more hours with no view of him.

I logged on after being away for a few hours and he was up, I was waiting for the ??? for the Powerful rope quest.

My LS had found this NM once before, and knowing the spawn pattern, logging on after NA prime time to find it was REALLY shocking.

I was not there when my ls killed it last time, but they got the drop. I started sleep-nuking it, and pulled it out of the area and killed the little link. I had a friend come to help just in case, but after tanking it, I can say it would be cake to solo as rdm 67.

Dropped the Harvest earring (2/2 maybe 100 percent?) a rosewood log and an ebony log.

Edit: also there have only ever been 10 of these up on my server. Prices ranging from 100k-1mil... so in like 5 months thats not very many. lol.

Logged on the other day and a friend of mine told me Colorful Leshy was up, out of nowhere. NO ONE else at his spawn. I thought this was odd, as the few times I'd been there it was crawling with people. So I get to Lufaise, he has just been hitting him with Carby over and over (he was 63 Smn, 70 Thf was I), and I run in and take hate immediately. Damnation this dude hits hard. I was taking 110-120 damage a swing.. luckily I'm a thief, and if we're getting hit often enough, then that Flee macro gets used. He hit about 1/8 swings, and with Utsusemi up, that wasn't a big deal. I could see him being soloable, but I forgot most of my evasion gear, and I forgot to take off my Coral Earrings and Woodsman Ring ><
I'd get to 100 TP, he'd heel Carby, I'd acid bolt, sleep bolt, SA DE, then zone, he'd sic Carby on him again, rinse repeat. Took about 5 of those to take him down. Dropped 2 mahogany logs and the earring. Quick 2.1m for us. Used the money to finish off my Elemental Staff collection for when I hit 51 Black Mage. ^^

Sorry for no info on spawn conditions or anything. This guy is a huge mystery.

Time of Death

2/24/988 Lightningday 106
Last Quarter Moon 55%
Jan 10, 2006 7:00am US CST

Colorful Leshy was up when I awoke this morning, in the place of one of the Leshy that hang out by the ???, south of the little hut. I counted - 7 Leshy plus Colorful Leshy. 8 total. This is definitely not a timed pop.

I was AFK for 5 hrs before that, and there's no record of any activity in my area during that time. The area's too big to really know for sure, but I'm convinced Colorful Leshy spawned/morphed from an untouched Leshy.

No idea how long the Leshy' went untouched - at least for the 5 hours I was there overnight. At most, since 4pm yesterday - the last time I know of a person killing Leshy in the area. Assuming he stopped within the hour, that would be @15 hrs.

How long that one, specific Leshy went untouched, I have no idea. I mention this because other people have seen Colorful Leshy in different parts of this area, suggesting that the NM can spawn from any of the Leshy.

The Fight:

68 thf/nin. Before I started in, I called my NPC (set to healer mode) and drank a persikos au lait. Good thing, because I am rusty as **** at soloing things. NPC fired off 3 CureIV's before I got my rusty groove back. Someone who is used to soloing probably won't need the extra help.

Leshy's hit fast, like Wanderer's in Promyvion. If you're counting on blink, definitely have some way to blind at least, and slow/paralyze if possible.
Each hit did around 90 damage to me.

Colorful Leshy had around 13,000 hitpoints.
Gave me 39 XP @ level 68. This is equivalent to XP from a Level 58 mob.

Edit: Regarding the colorful sky that's supposed to appear - I really don't know. NM was already up , and I didn't notice anything unusual about the sky then, during the fight, or after.

No it doesn't pop once per ingame year. People used to think that about Tasaijin and Snow Maiden but it was proven wrong.

Colorfull Leshy most likely pops after the Defoliate Leshy is left alone for 24 hours (just like Tasijin pops when it's placeholders are left alone for 24 hours)

As for how to get Defoliate Leshy to pop, it may be a lottery or ir may be that you must leave the Leshy placeholders alone (same way Tasijin and Snow Maiden work)

This NM was added around the same time Tasaijin, Snow Maiden, Rose Garden and a few other NM's with similar pop requirements were added.

The sky weather *does* change when it pops but it doesn't pop in response to the weather, it's the other way around. The sky changes when it pops (and brings everyone in the zone running). It's similar to how the rainbow appears in La Theine Plateau whenever somone unlocks SMN.

I believe you have it backwards. Defoliate Leshy is the rare version of Colorful Leshy. Whether it's a lottery of a lottery, like Steelfleece, or spawns from an untouched Colorful Leshy, who can really say? No one's posted anything about it on the major FF boards.

We also don't know beans about how Colorful Leshy spawns. One person here says it spawned when the Leshy's were left alone, another says it popped after he killed one. The truth of it can't be gleaned from what's been posted here.

The fact that it was added around the same time as those other NM's does suggest that leaving the placeholders up is part of it, but, we don't know that for sure.

I can't believe that's a requirement, because it's been nonstop traffic for 24+ hrs here now. I thought the Noble Mold and Rose Garden camps were bad....It's a wonder this thing has EVER spawned if the placeholders have to be kept alive.

The sky part is news to me, although it makes me wonder whether something else turns the sky rainbow-y. Really odd that a NM pop would do that.

Wow out of all these posts I don't see one mentioning a spawn pos. What happened to posting that actually helped people. All you see now is someone saying "yeah omg I got it and it died and wow I'm only lvl 2 and I'm so awesome and yeah it must be like a 3 year real life spawn time and omg I didn't get earring and it hit for 200 a hit but I had uber evasion...." How about a decent pos and something that helps, like watch out treants and saplings will link. C'mon people {Help us all out!}

Yes I've *been* there. There's alot of people who haven't. Just because it's obvious to a high lvl player who can run around there agro free, doesn't do much to help someone struggling to stay alive there. The biggest problem I see is that alot of ppl will ask for help, but not know what they are doing, so when you go and try to look it up and can't find it, it doesn't benefit anyone.

Okay, apparently, Colorful Leshy pops once an in-game year (2 weeks and 9 hours approximately) and when he pops you will see the sky all rainbowish for a short while. I haven't tested this myself, but have heard legit stories of it being true. If someone could provide proof, it would be most appreciated. :)

Nope. Made claim and got a second earring for a friend in less than a week. The sky was very "Colorful" though. Might be something to that...

I, RDM65/WHM32 duoed this NM with DRK61/THF30.

He dropped the earring. Hes not that hard of an NM (I was tanking him, he doesn't hit hard either).

Edit:

By the way, this guy gave me 20 EXP when me and the DRK killed him.

The Leshys around him were EP, so this guy has to have been higher in level by 1 or 2.

He did NOT aggro me or the Dark Knight who was level 61.

This NM is not aggro.

Colorful Leshy Theory

Okay, I killed Leshy, I killed the little Leshy (whatever they are called), I stayed there all day and did it. I tried logging points there since I noticed so many. Finally, just came across him by luck. No one was there farming. And that's when it hit me.

Suppose the spawn conditions for a Colorful Leshy is for one to survive a certain amount of time. Then, just as a tree going through the seasons, its leaves turn red and it becomes a Colorful Leshy. And I believe that there is a Defoliate Leashy no one has seen as of yet. Suppose the Colorful Leshy survives a certain amount of time and then its leaves drop off.

Just a theory. Good luck testing it. But if there is a Defoliate Leshy, I wonder what it drops.

he also drops Petrified log and Mahogany log.

Killed him last night. Saw some JP thf fighting, and getting owned. He ran for zone, so I took it off his hands for him. Pretty easy, hits hard on the occasion he does hit you, lol.

>>AWWWWWWW and he got his babys with him T~T so cute

Yeah, apparently Saplings link to Treants, thank god for Phalanx/Stoneskin/Sleepga.

Anyhow, 1st post on here, was surprised my pic made it to this place, NM was easy as heck to beat as my 75RDM/BLM, was waiting on foggy weather for that Powerful Rope quest NM, and noticed this red-leafed treant mucking about. Uses same moves as a normal treant so nothing to worry about when killing it.

As for the way it pops, I have no clue, it was just sitting there (it wasn't there earlier when I was waiting until morning day-time, killed Megalobugard then) amongst all the other Leshy's in that part of the zone, I was assuming it was just a 2hr/24hr spawn, apparently it wasn't when I went there the next day to scout for it, so it has to be lottery.
omg brds are ok soloers! lol

ya ive always thought i could solo ok as a brd and finally proved it. im a 74brd/whm atm when i just killed this nm. he hits for 60-80 damage and 120-140 criticals. his tp moves are pretty weak. i just kept dual paeons on and slept it when i needed to regen. killed it with only a earth staff at 153 staff skill lol. had cheap gear on too as i was going to farm hippo tailfeathers later and was just camping the ??? for powerful rope quest (never did get it though). gl and happy hunting. oh and for info hes not a lotto pop as no1 killed any trees for atleast 2 hours and then he popped all of a sudden.

Farming elementals today I saw this guy up and just walking around. Soloed him fairly easily as 75RDM/BLM. Gave I think 23 exp. It was a long fight though, this thing has a lot of HP. 500dmg Spirits within barley moved its life.

Hardest part was moving it away from the thunder elemental without linking it with any saplings (the one time I don't want to see thunder elems the dam thing won't go away ><)

The requirements for spawning this NM are as of yet unknown. There's been a lot of speculation on the KI forums, but CL seems to be one of several NMs whose spawn conditions continue to baffle the ffxi community. Mystery NMs.

This NM is absolutely huge. I came across it a while ago as 64 RDM/BLM, but it was too strong for me to solo at that point. Treants hit fast and their attacks are powerful, so he took my Stoneskin off way too quickly, even through Phalanx. With patience and a lot of time, you might be able to Sleep-Nuke it, but if it's like the other NM Treants Square added, he will have auto-regen.

I would guess it's around level 60, as the Leshy in the area are supposedly 52-56 and were EP to me at the time. As Treants are weak to Dark magic, Sleep has no trouble landing on them. I will try and find it as 70 RDM and see how much exp it gives me.

He does *not* aggro and I do not believe he links with the other Treants - only Saplings will link to it, not vice-versa. It will also lose Hate and go unclaimed very quickly if you bind / sleep it and run out of its spawn area.

There's only one place in Lufaise where it can spawn ;)

There's a small grove with loads of Leshy(treants) and Leshachikha(saplings).

As for spawn pattern, I can't say for certain, but I did see a few people kill leshy's for a while, so I suspect it's a 2 hour lottery pop of the leshy's.

Considering they drop nice logs, and there are logging points, it's a woodworkers paradise.

i dont think its 2hr. maybe more like 21-24hr or somthing like that, ive camped it for more than 6 hrs at a time a few times, killing leshys and the saplings the whole while and it never popped.

i didnt get to camp it 24 hrs straight to see when it popped but im thinking its more like a 21-24 hr pop as i mentioned above.
