Well, camped today for about 2.5/3 hours and all I found was Worlocks, not much farming to be done from those though, was just about to give up when I rotated the camera and there he was.I had kept up with buffs pretty regular and was the only one in zone so I hit him head on.I don't really bother with silence or sleep on most nm's anymore but no trouble getting standards to stick (para,slow,blind,grav).

I caught him before he had time to summon so I didn't have any pet's to fear, Shiva let out a depressing diamond dust about 50%,this landed me in yellow (stoneskin's timer wore about 3 seconds before he 2hr'd). All in all about 10 minutes to kill it, got a couple xp and a few gil and that's it.I'll be back though, aside from fenrir and diabolos, this is the only summon left to collect.

Woooot! Very excited!
After helpin a buddy with RNG AF3, I decided to head on in and camp Morax.
Got there and cleared the room a few times. Asked if anyone wanted to help from LS, got a DRK/NIN to come help me too. I was RDM/NIN (both 75).

When he got there, we cleared the room again, and sure enough, next time around, no SMN placeholder...
None other than Viscount Morax.

Resisted silence, but I stuck Paralyze and Slow on him. We pretty much beat him into the ground. He popped out Carby and smacked us with a Searing Light. Did a whopping 171 damage to the DRK, didn't even break my Stoneskin.

Mind you, with DRK's evasion (or lack thereof) my camping partner was getting hit a few times, so I tossed him a bunch of cures. Ran back to Convert and have full MP again, and he killed it with a rampage before I could even heal myself back up.
So I cured us both back up, while /cheering about my new toy.

1 time camping, 1 drop, 1 happy SMN.
Thanks a ton Sher. Would've been a lot different, to say the least, without yer help. =^.^=
to weak

soloed all 4 of these as 75 SMN. Just need to avoid adds (sorta). If low on MP just toss out carby... easy stuff, good skillups, nice titel, no drops. I see rdm solo these all the time even wihtout /NIN sub. Now to get them to drop
Weakest of the four demon NMs

Count Bifrons has nearly killed me on many occasions, I don't even like to attempt Baron Vapula, and Baronete Romwe is no slouch.

This NM is pretty damn weak if you're at the level where you can solo these NMs. As a SMN he hits a lot weaker and takes damage a lot harder than the other three, and he has nothing in the way of special abilities if you kill his elemental before you fight him. The only thing he has going for him is his 2 hour, and it's incredibly weak if you're able to solo him. It didn't even break my stoneskin. Not only that, if you're quick enough you'll probably be able to rifle off the proper barelement spell in time for it.

On the plus side, his drop is also the most expensive.

Recently fought Viscount on my way to the Shadow Lord. Our group was a random assortment of 60s and a few 70s. I tanked it as a 60 PLD, since the other PLD wasn't at the room yet. It hit for about the same as an XP mob does. Very easy to kill. It used Garuda for the 2hr, but it didn't hurt very badly. No pact dropped, but demon skull did. Quite a fun battle.

Me and a few other 70+'s where camping this from my LS. We were killing all spawns for fun and skilling up. When NM poped we were fighting another demon and decided we were gunna clear the room first to be safe. Right as our 75 PLD said that a 75 JP WHM/NIN named NON came though telepad and claimed NM ><. Much to our liking he was getting his *** kicked and then started to Flee. we follow him all the way back to where Quadav spawn where NM and other demons lost him. Our SAM got sighted by NM and we got all demons plus NM. Being in that room with Quadav i didn't want to cast Sleepga II cause i didn't want to add to our collection of mobs. LOL. We started to take a beating from about 8 Demons so i chanced it and did Sleepga II. Of course we pick up everything else in the room but PLD and sam started to take a little less DMG. I stoneskined, blinked and PLD tanked NM while SAM was on clean up. Within a few minutes we killed NM and all other demons. NO DARK PACT ^^; We'll get him again. 75 PLD, 70 WHM, 71 WHM, 71 BLM, 73 SAM +72 rdm(warped b 4 nm came)Lesson of store : Hmm ^^
BTW NON is on Leviathan server. Give him a /slap /tell bakayarou or /tell bankura LMAO

Even if you kill his summon when he does his 2 hour he will bring a new one out.

We killed his dark ele but when he 2 houred he brought out Carbuncle temporarly. We got pretty lucky, Searing Light only hit for 200. ;;

We were on our way to do 5-2 when we saw a smn camping this thing. like a few seconds later our lvl 64 Pld Maraudingbeast tried to kill several demons that aggroed our blm after most of the party went through the gate. He ran back to the smn and the summoner watched him die. After he pleaded for cure, there was only like 3 demons left before he died. So my party went back to raise him and we watch the lvl 75 Summoner die by this thing. Lol ofcourse we didnt help and our rng killed it soon after the smn died, and boom we got the 500k drop! Lesson learned the smn was an *** and we didnt not raise him. We gave our pld the drop for dieing. ^^

I still can't stop laughing when I think about that night.

(Btw, They aggro'd our WHM, I was the one who stayed behind to heal [Beastmen], but he was engaged when the elevator port'd me away, and thus he died alone.

new pops?

Did SE change pop times on all the NM's or something? It took 5 hours to pop this sucker the first time, and 5 hours and 45 minutes later I'm still waiting for pop. The other 3 in the area seem to be also popping once every 5+ hours too. And its not like anyone else has been taking them, I've been the only one in this zone for god only knows how long....

add:6 hours 20 since last pop. Not wasting anymore time on this when I wont get drop just because SE hates us so, so much.

Actually, The title given for killing Vorax is "Hellsbane", Not "DemonsBane" Fought him on the way to Kill the shadow lord. He wasnt too hard until he 2 houred and scared the heck outta me. Brought all of us (Pld sam thf whm rdm blm All 61) to red :x. But None the less he's not too hard. Got the Dark spirit pact^^; Which is 800k on our server. Eek /cheer

Pop time is a lotto after around 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Placeholder in that room is the Demon Warlock (SMN). Physical attacks are relatively weak and slow... Uses SMN 2-hour which does pretty low damage for a NM 2 hour :D

Happy hunting
