I have duoed VV with a friend on a number of occasions. Both of us going as rdm/nin, it takes quite a while and can be dangerous depending on the **** spiders. Usually kill it with just bio/poison and a few nuke near the end. Killed it again today but used ceremonial daggers, we had 4 people today though, rdm/ninx3 blm/whm. Always a fun fight.
Not to bad.

This guy isnt that bad, or hard to kill. Killed it with 6 people, we were just xping for merits and waiting for another group, when it popped. Took it out quite easily.

This is Easily Trio'ed by RDM NIN BRD, anyways we pulled Vivian to the Tunnel @ (G-6) and slowly damaged it there, the Spider in the tunnel will agro but its not a problem at all as long as the BRD and RDM keep it slept.

We used Echo drops, Poison potion(for AOE sleep..) but Remedys would be alot better than Echo drops imo; after It uses its 2 hour, Its important that it gets no TP so everybody can recover MP and HP before the NIN begins damaging it again(have the NIN stop hitting it, but not disengage so it doesnt go unclaimed).

the BRD should stand at G-7 after applying Mambo and Elegy, that way Vivian will only inflict sleep with its AOE breath, and not dmg or other status ailments(I dont understand why It is like this... lol)

Vivian doesnt seem to play by standard rules when it comes to hate, for whatever reason it draws in the RDM and BRD alot, If it draws you in dont panic, wake the NIN and walk back into the tunnel, its important to not agro the Spiders or anything, If you get more than 2 Spiders you're probably ****** lol.

Ring is a ****** drop, My friend just got it today 1/2 (lol.) so good luck to anyone who wants to camp this, Also; Despite what people say Its not a 21-24 hour window pop, Its cooldown time is 18 hours or so, and Its a lotto pop, there is no window.

4/30 on Vivian Ring
2/30 on Black Ribbon

These results are majorily from TH2 in which 2 Ring dropped. In 4 occasions in which there was TH4, 2 rings dropped. In Roughly 10 occasions in which there was TH3 0 rings dropped.

Roughly 10% Drop Rate on Both Items.
I have not seen Both items drop at same time.

Minimum Required to Kill Vivian (safetly):
NIN/WAR, THF/NIN, BRD/WHM, RDM/WHM

Other setups:
NIN/WAR, THF/NIN, RDM/WHM, WHM/BLM
NIN/WAR, THF/NIN, BRD/WHM, WHM/BLM

Items Required: Everyone must bring a stack of Poision/Venom Potions, a stack of Echo Drops OR a stack of Remedies if you can afford; Remedies are much better.

Happy Hunting

Killed her with 5 people. NIN did all the damage and tanking, BRD supported with double Mambo and cures, WHM provided haste and status cures while a couple PLDs in our LS who happened to be there helped cure and train spider adds.

No drop.

Carbuncle ToD?

Does anyone know when the last time the NM was killed on Carbuncle server? I'm only doing research and not looking to over camp anyone. Conquest camping ToD is pretty much impossible because there is no safe place to stand and go afk for hours. Everything around there aggros. I only want a ToD so I can try and plan accordingly in the future. I'd also like someone to confirm if this is or is not a lottery spawn of 21-24 hours. Lottery and timed spawn are two different things. It cant be 21-24 hours and an exact time at the same time unless its exactly 21 hours at a certain time or 22 or 23 or 24. I'm just trying to gather information for carbuncle. Any information anyone could provide would be extremely helpful

Thanks in advance!

0/1 on this guy

lottery spawn from Demonic Rose, and a timed spawn they say

We got VV to spawn on our 1st hr from killing PHs, we firsted started out with 4 ppl 2WHM 1RDM(me) and a NIN, i was duel boxing one of the WHMs.
anywayz we died and we got more ppl to come help for the 2nd run.

Another Ninja shows up and we try to take him out but his BAD BREATH attack is just so terrible that if u are in range of ur tanks then u are in range of BAD BREATH.Silence Potions are HIGHLY RECOMENEDED.By the way Spiders will aggro u and kill your whole pt while fighting VV.Make sure u take out the spider before fighting VV. Fight in the big room of (G-5).

So after we died our 3rd time we asked the ls for more help so 2 more show up and spiders aggro us and killed me (RDM) and the other WHM, tanks go down and we wiped once more.

4th time more ppl came so we had 2 full parties with 4 NIN tanks and this time we killed every spider!VV uses his SWEAT BREATH and sleeps everyone, thats why its best to just have a WHM stand as far back as he/she can. Stay in range of the WHMs not the NINs. RDM's Slow2 and Paralyze2 are a great deal of him because this guy looks as if he has Hundred Fists.Bard would help very much with MAMBO

Key is to have everyone bring silence pots and keep out of range at all times

Trio'ed this the other night. 75 THF/NIN, 75 BRD/WHM, 75 WHM/BLM (me.) We had a little help from the huge group of onlookers right at the end, when they realized we were gonna win and decided to kill some of the spiders we had aggroed (we had at least 2 or 3 on us at the time, the BRD did a good job of keeping them slept.) I think the main thing we found out was that the THF especially (or whoever your tank is if it's not a PLD) needs to bring antidotes. There was one point where VV used Sweet Breath and put all three of us to sleep, then immediately followed with Impale on the THF, inflicting him with a 50-tick damage poison which nearly killed him, since neither the BRD or I were awake to cure/poisona him. So next time, the THF will bring antidotes. As far as echo drops, none of us were ever silenced once but we always carry them on us anyway. Alas, the ring didn't drop, and with maintenance afterword, we lost the time of death. :(

Hello!~

1/1 on VV.

Thank you to Kellanved, Omegademon, Osiro, Trunx and Woot for dropping everything and coming out to kill her. You must all have my babies. <3.
Omega, your TH is officially NOT broken. :D

I've always wanted this; my actual name is Vivian, so my mnk will wear this ring. XD

Good luck, guys.

I agree that the drop is hard we're 0/40 and counting but Vivian doesn't take anything near an alliance.. We (Atheena 75whm & Reoin 75 nin) duo this almost daily occasionally a 3rd helps all you have to do is position it right & you don't get spider aggro :) Someday I'll have my ring.. :/

Its HP arent big - its just got nasty TP attacks.

Did this as NIN WHM BLM SAM and PLD/WHM. NIN can turn back to it to stop it gaining TP when mages get low.


How many PHs it usually takes to pop your ones? Some days it popped after 4 some days like never...

My LS just killed this beast 2 days ago on our way to Fafnir... btw we claimed and slaughtered Nidhogg a couple hours later. ^^ It's just like any other HNM just takes time and skill to kill. The best way to fight it is in the corrider south of the room, because there's minimal spiders there. Have an alliance of lvl70-75 members. At least 2 tanks, a couple healers, and typical DD. A good suggestion is to have at least 1 whm stand around the elbow in the tunnel just waiting for the NM to use it's breath attacks. then run up just to silena everyone needed and then run back out of the way. Saves a lot of meds. Just a couple things for all you hopefuls... This is a 21-24hour lotto spawn, with the overgrown rose by the dragon's aery entrance being the placeholder. And as for the drops... Good luck! It's about as common a drop as Kraken Club. We got a ring though.

actually, the less people the easier. this will prevent it from spamming breath attacks (sweet/bad). have everyone bring poison potions and echo drops. it resets hate alot and its 2hr will do 3 tp attacks on u. pull it in the tunnel to fight (use smn to pull or it'll draw u in) there will be 1 spider pop in that tunnel every 15mins or so, so be ready to take that pop during the fight. VV doesn't have much hp and will go down pretty quickly. did it with nin,brd,rdm,smn,whm. no ring tho 0/5 ;_;

#deathincarnate, Posted: Mar 21 2006 at 1:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This HNM is soloable by a 75RDM. Avesta on Siren server has done so. The battle took approximately 1 hour. This was accomplished by using a ceremonial dagger. This dagger has the effect of an -en spell built in. This dagger will also hit VV for 0. Which means no TP and no nasty AoE. So, thats the big secret to this HNM that you probably wont hear else-where ... CEREMONIAL DAGGER! !

OK! Let use get 1 thinkg straight here, The only way you can solo this guy, is if you are rdm or pld/nin, Now, if we are talking FAST solos, Then pld all they way. The pld would use Joyeuse and Kraken club and some HL + attack food, but this mob can not be soloed in less than i'd said 15min.

This HNM is slightly bothersome.. killed it tonight with 12 70-75's (Dual PLDs). The Bad Breath/Sweet Breath attacks are a pain in the ***.. make sure you all have Echo Drops and Poison Potions.

And prepare to be dissapointed. I'd say Ring is top 5 rarest drops in the game.

Perseaus's Harpe is much worse than 1/30 drop rate.

Stroper Chyme is not an NM.

NM feel like their drops rates are next to impossible when it takes a lot of work to kill mixed with it being 24 hour repop.

that must be pretty rare indeed. i can easily think of two NMs' off the top of my head that have 1/40 droprates: Jagedy Ear Jack and Stroper Chyme. I heard there's an NM in Rolenberry that also drops something at the same 1/40 rate. So... yeah this thing would have to be incredibly rare if it's one of the top 5 rarest drops.

The thing with the two Marbolo HNM, Cassie and Vivian, without a good strategy and PT setup they're EXTREMELY difficult. But, if you have a solid battle plan they can be taken down quite easily.

Just killed this HNM last night. We had 16 people 70-75, and we took her down in 30 seconds! We had a ninja tank her, one of our RDM used chainspell with stun, and 2 other RDMs chainspelled fire III. We had a 75 BLM twisting Fire IV and Fire III, and the melees unleashed their weaponskill at 300% TP.

All we got was a vine ; ;

What's so unreasonable about RDM75/DRK37?

His story may not be true, but you make it seem as though that's a completely unrealistic (or impossible) combination.

Even if his story is a lie, it still gave me a chuckle, which is good enough for me.
