Bugbear Matman Picture

General Notes

  • To spawn this NM, trade an Air Tank to the Moblin Showman at I-9.
  • Resists all forms of sleep except for repose.
  • Uses Flying Hip Press, an AoE move that does 400-700 damage per attack.
  • Should clear the area of goblins before spawning the NM.

we had 4 airtanks and 5 Viva (Sylph) ls members attempting this,
THF/NIN, MNK/NIN, BLM/WHM, PLD/DNC, SAM/NIN(me).
Pretty easy fight, just keep up baraera to reduce the "flying hippress" dmg,
his move did 690dmg to me and didnt eat my shadows!
He should have a 48% droprate, with THF4 with us it drop twice out of 4 fights.


Goodluck on attempting this, nice ws feets!

Just got done fighting. Duo'd with a friend as Sch/Rdm. I was on Thf/Nin for the TH4. It was going well I was in full Evasion set up (+46 Evasion.) He attacks really slow. I had no problem keeping my shadows up, only problem was his TP attacks. They hit hard. But not hard enough to keep you down when you have a healer. We lost at 7% b/c we got a link, but wuold have won in the end had that not happened.

Tactics:

I flee'd in and pulled the 3 hobgobs away from the Hobgoblin Showman, pulled them into the tunnel, made sure I had all the Gob's attention, then I hit Hide and made sure I lost their attention, ran back to the Showman, pop the NM, and pull it back towards the cave. Don't go to far in or you get aggro from the 2 Gobs in the tunnel. Stay a little out of the cave on the wooden planks, and you'll be fine.

When we got aggro I tried to hide, but the NM saw me, so I had 1 Boss and 2 Toughs attacking me. So hide doesn't work on him :P

Thats it in a nutshell. Definitely can do it without Haste, I would just swap in my haste gear when I casted ustu, then back to evasion gear, but the haste would really have been nice. I only got hit like 3 times by normal hits, the AoE's a bizznatch though.

Bloody Bolts are hard to land on him, maybe if I had gone with sushi and a Rng Acc build while fighting him, but I was eating meat and Evasion build, so meh...

Good luck to those who need this item, I need for my Nin and Rng, and will be going out again soon hopefully.

I just got done killing this guy as a PLD/RDM with a RDM/DRK and a RDM/WHM to keep me afloat. Honestly, with the enfeebles and my own hide, he's not that intimidating, and we weren't ever in a serious situation. It was basically a big waiting game until he did a weaponskill, then popping a Cure IV.

I'm going to guess that he's much harder when you try to use an alliance on him because he's suddenly gaining *alot* more TP and thus prompted to use his giant AOE move *alot* more. When it's just one tank with some dedicated support, it becomes a cake-walk.

I would reccomend going as PLD/NIN if your support can raise your air resistance. I probably wouldn't have gotten hit save a few weaponskills as /nin, but the lack of bar-aero made me stay with /rdm, which was still very do-able.

SE really needs to make forced pop NM's like this in which you dont have the option of a +1 trigger item drop their expected drop 100%. This guy is such a pain, i personally am 0/2 on him and its really painful to watch EVERY member of your group thats fighting him get their sabatons and you're left scratchin your head. It's just really unfair and SE needs to think before they make NMs like this.

No matter what ppl tell u, he is a MNK and does all the nasty stuff (endless double attack and counter).

Duo'd it as (elvaan) NIN75/war and (mithra) rdm75/whm.
Somewhat resistent to blind, para worked pretty good (capped enfeebling rdm75 +1 merit +0 in equip). Flying Hip Press was doing some decent dmg on the nin, brought him down to 75HP once, apart from that a rather easy fight

EDIT: 0/2. . . . .
NIN using eva setup (ohat,scorp harness, af1 pants, rasetsu tekko&sune ate? switching to haste (walahra turban, dusk gloves, fuma kyahan) for utsu.

RDM using MND setup (wise cap & gloves, justice badge, errant body & pants & boots, mp rings, hierarch belt, rainbow cape). Switching to AF1 body for enfeeblings (except for para).

Spells used:
obviously cure, regen, prot IV, shell IV, Utsusemi: Ichi & Ni
Kurayami: Ni (alot resists)
Hojo: Ni
Paralyze II (1 merit)
Blind (similar to kurayami)

Just did this with a 71 Sam (Me), 70 WHM, 75 Rdm and 75 Nin. The fight was a piece of cake. Only the nin melee'd while I ran in and out for darkness SC. He didn't use his AoE once throughout the whole fight and we went 1/1 on the boots.

We did 2 runs for the feet armor:

- 1st run @ full moon: 1/7...

- 2nd run, a month later, last quarter moon (60%): 6/8 ^^.

Don't remember setup for first run but pt setup for 2nd was:
PT1: Pld, Rdm, Whm, Brd
PT2: Thf, Sam, Drk, Smn, Brd (me), Mnk

We had the pld solo melee-ing it, and the thf, drk, sam getting TP with Ranged Attacks (Sam with Meditate and Drk with Absorb-TP too.) Then running back and forth for WS.

Bard in 2nd pt Etude the melee, and Prelude for RA.

Workes like a charm =)

So I'm 0/3 on this.....****** me off.

Anyway, the best PT for this Ive found is something like NIN, SAM, SAM, BLM, WHM. You rly only need 1 SAM, but it would be laughable with two.

Just build up TP on the mobs in the area and then pop. Have the nin engage only and have the SAM's Engage only to WS then disengage after.

Just do Blade: Ten >> TA Gekko and MB ice. rinse and repeat whenever NIN has enough TP. After 4 SC+MB's he'll be dead.
1/1 Wooot!!

Just did this Fight Monday September 4th... our set up: 75 NINx2 75 RDM 71BLM(me) killed surrounding monsters I pop and run back and aggro gobin in tunnel behind us.. my sleep 2 gets resisted but RDM's sleep 2 sticks(I waste E-seal trying to sleepga II the goblin).. fight goes on and I cast Drown, Rasp, Frost to help tanks tank =D... goblin stays sleeping for long enough time for me to toss in a T3 and W4, and!,.... help RDM keep tanks alive...Focusing on keeping tanks alive in this set up would be best.. I used stun when that hip press hit and used that 1-2 seconds to cure up tanks with RDM.. fight went really smoothly got the drop im 1/1 on the Rutter boots! Woot!

Me <70WAR/35NIN>, Zagato <75BST/37WHM>, and Vangoh <75SMN/37WHM> decide today to take on the Matman. We get into the fight, clear the mobs around the Showman, I pop the mob. Takes about 9 seconds, 2 Flying Hip Press in a row, Im dead. So the BST uses the Pergatory Bat he has charmed, SMN uses Diabolos to take hate with a Nether Blast, and they start working away it. Bat dies, Carrie is summoned. Diabolos goes, garuda is sent out. BST starts to invis himself and find a new bat, smn rest mp, fight just keeps carring on. After a long battle, the Matman goes down! And what do I get, 23g, woot! 0/1. We go for run #2, same concept, I stand back alittle this time, to not die instantly, eventualy a Flying Hip Press gets me, I go down. One of the Bugbear around the area pops back, they move Matman closer to the tunnel, but it links. Matman goes down, another no drop, and party wipes to the link.

Drop rate?

I am wondering if the drop rate on Rutters has been altered.

Did this last night, went 5/5 on Rutters and 5/5 on Stone.
I promise you, every single time he dropped both.

At any rate, did it four times with a 67WAR, 67MNK, 75RNG, 75SAM, 75PLD, 75WHM, 70BLM, 69DRK, 67BRD, 67PLD. Each fight took about 5-6 mins.

The last time the PLD had to leave so I tanked it. It was hitting me for about 100 on normal hits, Shield was proccing fairly often though, and the SAM had fun, two houred, did Light, and kept hate for a bit. ^_^

Drop rate?
# Aug 07 2006 at 3:32 PM Rating: Decent
I don't think the drop rate has been altered as I went 0/2 on him Saturday morning...:(

We went as 75BST(me), 75NIN, 75THF, 71WHM, 75MNK, and 75RDM. On the first fight, the NIN, THF and I were killed by his second Flying Hip Press but the MNK's 2hour plus the RDM/DRK doing Chainspell Stun won the day.

Needless to say, the second fight went a lot smoother. Too bad all he dropped was a stone after each fight.

Did this as RDM/SMN/WHM/BLU/THF/PLD. The fight was relatively easy with Diabolos' Phalanxga so if you can you're goingt to want to get a SMN to tag along; with it the AoE would hit for almost nothing. Other than that theres nothing else I would recommend... the fight really isn't that bad. Also we had a THF with TH4 and we went 2/2 on him.

Good luck~

I recommend a single tank on this thing with a couple of healers watching him and him alone. This thing gets TP insanely fast and drops that AoE and everyone is toast with 2 of them. I recommend a NIN tank with every piece of +Evasion gear he can get "solo" it with mage help (stun, flash, and cures) while all the rest of the melee go out and build TP off other mobs and then come back to lay it on him. His AoE does anywhere between 500-800 and he used it twice on us in less than 10 seconds with only 6 people. PLD can tank it as well, but nothing can tank it while it spams that nasty AoE. It doesn't have alot of HP and I am sure the build TP method shouldn't take over 10 minutes per kill or so.


Hope this helps.

Took him out today with THF/NIN(me) BLM/WHM RDM/WHM. We made it look extremely easy. Built TP from the 2Gobs and Bugbear then popped him. RDM grabbed hate and i SA WS'd him to get hate. I had all my evasion gear on and started to take it off as the fight went on. RDM's paralyze stuck extremely well. AoE only did dmg to me, not sure if Mages where out of range or there Stoneskin took damage. His AoE's sometimes went threw damage and sometimes took anywhere from 1-3 shadows.

Also dropped everything(thankfully this TH+1 is working). Thnx to Gildakilla and Tneya for helping me out.

THF74/NIN37, had 12 people there don't really remember all the other jobs, RDM, BLM, RNG, PLD, SAM, WHM, DRK--- forgot rest ._. anyway, his AoE hit all our melee for about 600~ second time i warned the whm to cure the ones under 600hp first, but she didnt.. lol.. we got 4/5 drop, thats with TH2 lol. we happened to wipe on mine, cuz the samurai passed out << (you owe me an air tank! ; ;) NOT an easy fight if people try to melee it. i'd get some BLMs and a tank + a whm and nuke the **** out of it, since its AoE really, really hurts. he usually spams Flying Hip Press in the beginning, then uses other AoE closer to he end of the battle -- or is that cuz less people were alive? << GL on this, i'll definately try again lol.

We started out going into this fight a bit unprepared... we thought we could tank and fight this guy striaght up....after the 2ed AOE in about 10secs of the start of the fight, we wiped. Aoe dmg around 500-1000 depending on the job. Me being a pld, with def up, was hit for about 500-600 each shot, everyone else died. So best way to fight. Have the tank, take the NM over to the corner and fight it alone. We had a Sam with us that just med. on the side and when he got up enough tp, he runs in, we do light sc, and have mages blast away. By this time he usually gos down pretty fast. Either way, ended up with a 5/6 drop at a 11% moon for those who care. Either way, after we started this way, easy fight, took no more then 5mins or so.

Went of a "dropping" spree today: 4/4 Personal Record of 5/5 =P yeah, uber luck or SE changed the drop rate to 100%

To be able to repop this NM, you will need to wait 10-15mins after defeating the NM for the Moblin Showman reappears again.

Just trio'd this. 75 THF/NIN, 71 WHM/SMN (me), 75 RDM/BLM. Very exciting fight. :p We popped it not really knowing what to expect (after clearing adds, which are mid 70s. Should be 1 Bugbear and 2 Goblins). Not too bad, he's not a MNK like the others (no constant double attack, yay^^ I guess he's a WAR, because he had double attack, just not 100%). I'd suggest fighting on the narrow walkway just before the 3 mobs. This way you can avoid aggros. The biggest danger is his AOEs, they do roughly ~700. >_< Mages really have to keep SS up. It's not a huge range, but it's hard to be out of range without getting aggros. The AOes are Flying Hip Press (strongest one), and Earthshock (not as strong, but does stun). Provided you keep everyone's HP up that is in AOE range, this is a fun and easy fight. We got the drop, yay. Popped with Air Tank if you didn't know. :p

Do not worry is not a virus or Hax, just a simple map i did windows paint with, the Red Dots Show a Quick route to the NPC in which you pop the Matman. the fournce(knows spelling isnt rite oh well) is what makes this route all the benefactory if you see a Player on the other side of the area just below teh fournce box ask them to pop it a few times so oyu may goe threw, you need Firesand, which isnt very cheap but is what makes things run smooth buy a stack of them just in case the pathway below fournce isnt open and see if you can get a mage or a high lvled player to the spot, refur to the map for route to this section. then just use the map diagram format and just follow it threw pretty much til you meet and greet NPC, kill monsters around it, step back, trade AIR TANK, and good luck do you a pt of 68+ may have a fair change if pt setup made rite, bring a THF with you so droprate will be fair. 6+ members is a Must for this fight informerys of droprate 50/50 has been reported so the drop rate is a 50% one you eather get it or not
RE: Map+information
# Dec 03 2005 at 1:48 AM Rating: Default
To get there, go to http://www.ffxi-atlas.com

Pull up the Map of Oldtown and go to entrance three. Facing east there is a gap in the path to where entrance three is. You have to press three levers which will open three panels that will raise into place and allow you to walk accross the gap over a bridge.

The blue dots indicate the lever locations to control the bridge. One person should go to each of the three levers and learn how to operate them as well at the fast route back to the bridge so they can make it across.

That will get you into Newtown at the ONLY entrance you can use to make it to the camp.

Now, to kill the NM. When he pops, hes gonna take two swings right off the bat that is gonna hit everyone in range for 200-600 damage. Twice. So heres the way to take him down. Get everyone built up to 300% TP. If they have a Stun weaponskill have them use that. As soon as it pops, everyone lock on and hit Weapon Skill all at once. Then have mages fall back ut of AoE range and everyone do their jobs from there.

Have everyone go for max damage as fast as possible. To give you an idea, I am a BLM, I saved TP, hit him with Retribution, then fell back with the mages and castedn Thundaga III.

All that damage combined should drop him in a few seconds. Of course that is with like 12+ people. If you have a PT of 6, I am sure it's possible and I wish you the best but I only know the way I fought it with my group.

Boots dropped 1/3 for us. So good luck to you.

We went with 75 Whm, 75 Mnk/Nin (tank), 71 Mnk/War, 72 War/Nin, 72 Drk/War, and me (68 War/Nin), we were tryin to get them for my Drk friend. Well, its AOE 2-shotted *half* the party, but Mnk/Nin and higher War/Nin lived, Whm was out of range, kept them alive. Didn't get either of the drops ><

AOE did 680 to each of us, ignored my shadows (higher War/Nin's 3 shadows took the dmg all at once). It did the AOE at start of fight, twice very fast. Some of its other attacks ignored Mnk/Nin's shadows, but weren't too bad. We had read this forum before going, and weren't expecting a bloodbath, we think sometimes it's worse than others... Got Raise3's though LOL

Therefore, if the person posting that they did a run with two other DKs is in fact a person, statistics dictates that they have a fairly reasonable chance of being the only actual person in the instance, so it is in fact quite acceptable to say "I soloed the instance with two other DKs."

"-2% haste cant notice much for duel weps"

Actually people tend to blow that stat out of proportion.

Think about it:

I'm a 75 Warrior, I dual Wield 2 Axes, with ~300 delay each. Dual Wield II trait takes away 100 from the total of the 2 weapons combined, and Suppannomimi takes away an extra 50. That being said, my Weapon Delay on both Axes is 450.

What is 2% of 450? 9.

OHNOES these boots add 9 delay to my attack, pff.

Slow% also affects the time it takes to cast a spell or Ninjitsu. Utsusemi: Ichi takes 4 real-life seconds to cast. What is 2% of 4 seconds. Yeah, not very much is it.

Which is why i'll never pay the big bucks for stupid items like Speed Belt that gives a whopping 6% haste, yet costs 45-50 million on my server. Yeah i know it adds up, but it really isnt worth it.

from what i understood when slow is in effect, it is enhanced 2%, not a constant slow effect. If i'm wrong, meh. it says "+2%" instead of haste 2%, meaning you would have to have it in effect to receive it. i'm probably wrong, but haste and slow mean nothing to rng's.

No.. haste effects the recast time, not the actual casting time of spells.

Fought him yesterday, went 2/2 on the boots. ^^
Be ready for that AoE attack, it hurts and he does it lots of times. Goodluck to everyone after the boots! =D

Thanks to Ezahii, Litza, Steveo, Tetsaiuga, and Bulldozer btw! ^^

there's 2 easy ways and 1 hard way to get to this NM.

First is to pay Twinkbrix in Oldton 10k gil to win the key item for the solo and 3-person-same-race ENM in Mine Shaft 2716. after you win pay him another 2k and he will warp you there, just exit and go west to the gate at J-8 then take the south path. If the south path is blocked, trade a firesand to the furnace at K-8.

2nd way is to enter Newton from the South entrance from Oldton, you will have to pass a Firesand Gate at F-10, if the gate is blocking the north path then this path will be blocked and you will have to find another way to get to the Moblin NPC. If it isnt then take the north path, at the intersection take a right and head east until you reach H-10, then the path will turn south. Keep going along this path and you'll reach another intersection at J-11 the path will go east then turn north. at the end of this path you'll see the Moblin Showman.

3rd and the hard way would be to take the main entrance to Newton movalpolos, which will take 2 people to get to the levers at the opposite side of the bridge at K-10 of Oldton Movalpolos. from there just go east until you get to the Gate at J-8 and head south.

very nice directions.


We did this with PLD75, WAR75, WAR72, WHM75 and RDM69. Didn't have to use any 2hour abilities, but beware of his AOE attack. As a previous poster mentioned, this hits for 500+ damage everytime, so keep your melees healed.
It is recommended to kill the surrounding monsters (2 moblins and a bugbear) first, because they will link. They con EM-Tough to level 75.

I was wondering if anybody could post how they got to the Moblin NPC? XD
I was searching all around Newton and was having trouble figuring out how to get past the gates and such. Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance. ^^

HAW, thats me!

This NM really isnt all that hard, I would say 5 lvl 70+ or 4 lvl 75s can take him on no problem. I would recommend a ninja tank as well as a WHM for Curaga purposes since he does an AoE jump move that hits for 500+ damage at least 4 or 5 times during the fight.

The Rutter Sabatons are not a 100% drop, I am 2 for 3 with them, but I've heard of some people going 0 for 10+. So far the 2 that dropped are the only 2 that I've seen on my server so far (and I have 1 of them, w00t).

Also drops a Sylvan stone 100% of the time (ENM trigger item for Bugboy in Mine Shaft 2716) and Bugbear Mask.
