As for Horutoto, these things do aggro. Got owned by one a long time ago when I was in there exploring as a low level.

At North Landing they max out at level 19. Range seems to be from 15-19.

They do link, trust me on this. I was level 20 MNK/level 10 THF at the time and these little buggers, 3 of them, linked and chased me. *panic time* lol I got lost and someone helped me by picking them off one by one.

Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers.

Yes, I agree, they do in fact link (in Inner Horutoto Ruins at very least).

Hi, I've been killing these for a long time in hopes of getting lots and lots of Beetle Jaws, however, I have killed way over 50 and not a single one has dropped it... Is it just bad luck or are any of you experiencing the same problem? I'm a level 30 THF with Treasure Hunter and I still can't get these... Maybe I should just head to Saurmogue Champaign.

As far as I can tell, beetle jaws are just extremely rare drops, even from higher-level beetles.

If you're farming them for Bonecraft, I'd suggest just farming some other way, then buying from the AH. Most of them in there are just from leveling parties.

Sounds like I'm gonna be hunting some of these bad boys. Hope they got a good drop rate...

Hi there... Just found this site - really nice!

Just to let you know - the beetle also drops jaw bones.

Thanks.
