People are Tearing up the Temple of Uggalepih
# Mar 09 2007 at 3:53 PM Rating: Decent
Every part of Temple of Uggalepih is swarming with peeps, even Den of Rancor. If their not fighting for Pursuer pops their fighting over Chopper and Stabber pops for the Prelate Keys so they can fight for Pursuers down the Carby Mit Halls.

I was down there to get my Carby Mits, took hours to get a prelate key cause of all the people. We tried that trick for agroing magic thru the door, wouldn't work. There was even a party on the other side I could target, asked a player named Lotus to open the door for us so we could get the Carby Mits, said he didn't understand english, asked in translator "<Please Help Me Out><Gate Breach><Carby Mitts><Thank You>" at which he replied <Thanks for the offer but I'll have to pass>.

Ok, lets say that a JP wouldn't understand that comment and think I was asking for help with the carby rather then the door, but I've seen Lotus doing english /shout's and /say's in both Jeuno and Whitegate. I happened to be on my 75thf at the time for the fight, selfish little tea-bagger was to scared to open the gate thinking our party was going to take all their precious Pursuer pops, the little ******.

I've already made my decision to wait it out about a week or 2 till the rush goes down, I've waited 3 years and killed that Rogberry more times then possibly remembered and I can wait a week more for my dagger.

Point is, please don't forget yourselves while playing, rude people suck and ruin the game for other people, how you act comes back on you, your crappy childish greedy actions will **** off players and tends to make them act that way towards others which gets spread farther and farther like a disease.

Kindness gets kindness, please try and remember that.

As for the little jelly ****** Lotus, guess if I want people to be nicer I should practice what I'm preaching. Guess I should take him off that LS Slap alert and let all the whm's I know they don't have to avoid his cure and raise requests like HIV.

The time before you can respawn him is about 15 minutes. So really, getting the item to pop him will be the hard part. Alot of competition

Well here it is, what you all wanted. you need to trade a rare/ex item called "Flickering latern" to the ??? where sozu used to pop.

this item drops from tonberry pursuers (thfs). drop rate isn't good at all but once you have item its all good as the thiefs knife seems to drop 100% (many thf's will be upset after spending months getting theirs before this)

bad news is people from all over are now camping tonberry thf's to get their hands on knife to sell and as for RMT well they've turned their botting tools over to the tonberry thf's aswell and have even used the bronze tonberry NM to kill off other players.

I wish all you real THF's happy hunting and goodluck

why would thfs that already have their knives be upset? unless they bought it, they have their knife and should be quite pleased.

anyone who obtained the knife by killing sozu and getting the drop has no reason to complain, a spade is a spade.

RMT won't be making too much money off of those knives when it is this easy to obtain now, so I wouldn't be too concerned about them.

Flickering Lantern 
A gilt lantern treasured by the fiend 
Sozu Rogberry. The eerie flame burning 
inside emits a surreal radiance. 


This appears to be the pop item, it's in the dats. What drops it, I have no clue yet.

Yay finally SE does what many have wanted. All the good pop items are gonna drop Rare/EX or by force spawn. So long RMT... Better luck next time to you.

Now only thing I need to do is find out how to find the pop item and go try to get my knife after all this time.

Thanks SE! Your #1
Just checked after the update.

Boxes in the middle of the room with a ???.

"There is a slight scorch mark on the box, as if someone had placed a lantern here..."

Probably a Tonberry lantern, I'm not positive. If I manage to pop it, I'll post. Could be the rare/ex one for ZM4 or the sellable one, dont know yet. Also, it has yet to be said if it dissappears for a time after trade.

Edit: Just noticed the http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?fitem=11174 page. Will update if I find any info. ^^b

What is the deal with RMT in this area - I can't figure out if they're farming, xping, or what. Is there something good that drops off these pots that no one knows of? Have they found some fantastic use for Mercury and Magic Pot Shards?
It can't be the scroll drops...

If you're REALLY good at THF you can solo him at the high 60's.

By REALLY good, I mean capped Marksmanship, all the RACC you can get, Sleep Bolts, Bloody Bolts, Acid Bolts, and Blind Bolts. Wherever you cannot equip RACC gear, equip Evasion gear.

Even with all of that, you need to be good enough to be able to dodge Throat Stab, have reset your Tonberry Hate and be lucky enough to claim him. I know he's soloable by at least THF69 because I soloed him. I can't say that I had a lot of RACC gear at the time, because I didn't even expect to claim him at that level, but I did have just about every piece of Evasion Gear I could wear at that level on. I just knew how to dodge Throat Stab and I cleared my Tonberry Hate between pops. Hope this helps^^;

Sozu Rogberry: 1/2


First time I got kill was when a MNK wiped to Sozu. He had Sozu at 1% HP. When he was defeated, Sozu's name went yellow, and I finished him with 1 hit. No drop. I don't know if that really counts. If not, I'd be 1/1


Then it happened. I was camping and all the gil sellers in the room disappeared. This was the big RMT banning on 11/24. At that instant, the 9.5k RMT were banned. I was alone in the room for the 1'st time since I started camping Sozu 20 or so hours before. Sozu popped moments later, I got the claim, the knife dropped. 2'nd kill ever. Killed as Lv74 THF/Lv37 NIN. Camped Sozu solo and killed solo. Camped Sozu solo for 21 straight hours up until it dropped. Never camped Sozu before those 21 hours of camping. I killed every placeholder right away as soon as they popped during those 21 hours. Noone but me ever bothered to kill any of the placeholders. Saw Sozu pop 6 times during those 21 hours. Got no claims for any of Sozu's pops. Only times I got a claim on Sozu was when the MNK wiped with Sozu at 1% HP and the 1'st Sozu pop just after the RMT bannings 2 hours later.


I must be one of the lucky ones. I told my LS, in which they flipped. The whole time I was camping Sozu, my LS told me I had no chance at getting the knife. All the THF in my LS were furious when I told them. They all camped Sozu for months before they got theirs. What makes it more unbelievable is that none of them had to compete for RMT either. When they each got their knife, RMT hadn't knew about Sozu yet, so their chances were much, much greater for obtaining a knife.

I'm not a patient person, I have no time to waste on hnm/endgame shells who would exploit me for th2 or my blm, and often enough I have no patience for sitting for hours in a little room waiting for a little green man.

Btw, regular mobs will not enter the room where sozu spawns they will stand outside and use ranged attacks until they kill you or you kill them.

I have camped for hours usually when bored beyond natural tolerance, or while helping random people with testimonies, coffer keys or just general fun. Every time I camp I notice a room full of lazy peopple just standing there. They'll chat with you while you kill placeholders. It's amazing and they are amazed you can solo placeholders, just like good fekin noobs.

But when your NM you just killed placeholders for hours to spawn eventually does pop they are happy to cash in on your effort. NO offense to those who have successfully camped and claimed this NM over stun, dia, provoke, darts, ki blast, commies, bots, and God himself occasionally, but 8 cgf botting all with different offsets pretty much ruins the dart claim theory.

I am just a humble PS2 player I know my limitations and what my thf is capable of I couldn't cheat even if I had to. All that said to say this, you are all full of ****. Good luck camping against rmt teams from **** and good luck getting this knife unless you have $1.2k dollars to buy the gil for this knife or can outcheat the cheaters. I don't have that kind of money or resource so ***** you and ***** SE, until we find a world without rmt and with a Rare Ex thf knife.
