Historical Information

In Greek mythology, Enceladus ("Trumpeter to Arms") was one of the Gigantes, the enormous children of Gaia (Earth) fertilized by the blood of castrated Uranus.

During the battle between the Gigantes and the Olympian gods, Enceladus was disabled by a spear thrown by the goddess Athena. He was buried on the island of Sicily, under Mount Etna. The volcanic fires of Etna were said to be the breath of Enceladus, and its tremors to be caused by him rolling his injured side beneath the mountain. In Greece, an earthquake is still often called a "strike of Enceladus".

Killed him as a 75 Thief / 37 Dancer, while weakened (from failing to pick the chest), and aggroing the 3 other mobs in the room. TH3 equipped but sadly no drop :( just a Mahogany Shield.

I've camped Enky for almost a year and before the recent deflation his bracelets were 3mil on Caitsith... they are now 50k sadly. I solo'd Enky as a 60thf idk what lvl he is.

Has only one PH and its the bone cutter that spawns in either of his two rooms. Garenteed either him or the BC WILL spawn every 5vana hrs or about 12 rl mins. kill the BC and when his name dissapears use /echo to write the ToD and wait for the next spawn :) or check on Ogygos one flight down. Enky trades rooms everytime he spawns so if he is in one the next spawn he WILL be in the other... so best to camp the one he wasn't just in. The PH however can be in either room so don't miss the ToD. He is a bst... I've been charmed and killed ppl fighting him... I've been killed by ppl charmed by him... can use anti-charm gear but doesn't really help. Honestly I've killed him 200+ times and been charmed like 5 so not likely but possible. If there are no other campers just wait till he calls his bats and he can't charm you. I like to have my daggers out so when he starts to call them I turn around and interupt him... he then can't call them and cant charm you lol stuck in some casting lingo for the whole fight its great.

Drop rate suxs don't expect much have TH3 and got it like 20times in over a year. If multiple campers take something to claim fast, don't use a macro have it ready in your drop down menu its much faster and reliable.

And no the BC's in the hall don't change the order of wich room he appears in, no clearing the whole floor doesn't make him spawn faster, no he isn't linked to Porphyrion.

Well I solo'd the guy as a lvl 54 Drg/Thf. I was at about 650/980 hp when i started the fight and ended it with 300+ hp. I didnt use my 2hr or anything. Penta Thrust x2 FTW though. I think if you bust your 2hr on him he will be toast. Good luck man

Here's my little experience with Enki.

My best friend and I have been camping this NM for the last few days for his war. He camped the first day as 61 PLD/THF without me and got 8 claims within 10 hours but 0/8 on the hands. The second day I came along 62 THF/NIN but we only got 2 claims cause he fell asleep; also no drop. Today we've camped for about 15 hours or so... and got about 10 more claims on him. claim # 9 we decided not to use WSs on the NM to see if anything changed. no dice.
Claim # 10 however we decided to SC.. SA Dancing edge to Vorpal Blade doing Scission for a combined total of 1400+ damage! take a guess what happened when Enk died. it's been about 1 hour and 45 minutes since last spawn now, I'm just checking to see if the 1k+ WS thing works again... could have been coincidence. 1/20 on Enk and on the one we did an SC of 1000+ he drops. hmmm..... will edit this once I get more info..

*useful things to know* 5 game hours after the Bonecutters are killed, another will spawn or Enki. Doesn't seem to be a pattern as to which room. Enk can spawn back to back, camps # 4-10 happened really quick; maybe an hour each one sometimes less. hope this helps. GL everyone and Congrats Inc on your new bracelets.
hmmm......

well the other day i decided to camp this as 40 ninja/ blm( to make spells stronger) so i would just go back and forth between rooms to kill PH using tonko ni. gigas there r ep-dec so i didnt want to much aggro, after about 1h 1/2 he pops in the room i was at i pulled it to the hall eway by the demonic doll and lucky enough no other gigas in the room linked. I started fighting him and all my defeebles sticked( jubaku hojo and kurami which took 2 casts to stick). I started fighting him and all i really needed to cast was ni, i barely ever used ichi. He was going down alot faster then i expected and my ninjutsu did about 120ish each cast. He was at 1/3 hp when he used charm and it landed. He went back into the room with his other giga friends and i just stood there and couldnt do anything >< finally i uncharmed claimed him and went back into the hallway by the demonic doll. he was at full health again :( so i had to infeeble him and nuke him again. The fight was super easy, i have over +50 eva using food and i used a couple of int gear for my spell dd. The only times he hit me were by his ws's that go right threw shadows, other then that he never touched me. he died and of course no drop i wast really expecting it but i was glad that i took him down , it was a fun fight. He only gave me 100 exp so that means that this is only lvl 40 lol which makes him a pretty weak NM. btw im about 20/100+ on the actual drop but here are a few things ive learned

- he drops mostly when ur in a pt with another person camping it ( ive never got a drop solo out of about 50 kills but ive got 20 drops when i was with other people.
- he can pop back to back, he usually does this after it takes him a long time to pop lets say 2h
- usually not many people camp this becuse of the low drop rate but if ur in the area u might even get alky/pallas tod
thats all i have to say and i hope u learned something about this NM.

about the person who posted that they are impossible to beat to claim i call bs on that. noone is impossible to claim and u do not own that tower. So stop acting so dam cocky, if uve really killed the nm that many times with another person i think ud get alot moredrops then that and u really have no life.

I journeyed up the tower today hoping to find this guy. Oygos poped on me and a friend, no drop. Killed Mimas 3 times for 1 axe (2k...) while waiting for this guy. He had to go a little while later and i was there alone. After an hour and a half i had to log. So can anyone tell me what the pop timer is normally in? I was killing all the gigas in both rooms because its loterry spawn.

Me and my hommie Mikerobinson are skilled as anyone on campin Enk. We are 35/356. I promise you if we are there you will not get the claim. We have thus named Upper tower Robbin-Deezzz tower. Not to immulate a greater person.. only that we have never been out claimed. So to save everyone else in the world a hard time of workin for money on Enk. He is not likely to drop it. He is a greedy *** nm and is not worth your time. Especially if we are there.

you are a loser, im sure you dont get outcamped simply because he has low drop rate you fool, not manypeople camp him for that reason. and RMT definetly dont bother with him. in the many hours you spent camping him you could have made alot of more money. but then again i wouldn't expect someone of ther intellect to pick up on that

No one cares. This is for posting useful information not how many times you and your b/f make out at this tower. And if you had half a brain you'd have said what sever you were on.

For others who like useful information it seems to be a 10% drop rate.

Has anyone heard something about 1k+ WS being the key to getting drop on these giants. I heard once from a dragoon I was camping against once. It was his first time on Enk and he was drg/war and he got claim and drop after doing a 1221 penta thrust. This kind of freaking me out considering I am 0/7 on Enk and havent had less than TH-1 each time.

To this and the post below, anything about 1k+ dmg helping an item drop is most likely not true and spawned by rumors and happy circumstances (if nothing else, it's definitely not confirmed and compareable to the EES shot= TH+3; most nonsense and detracts from helpful information).

TH2 will help, and I personally believe TH1 helps all the same, but people are pretty neurotic about the idea that TH1 helps commons drops, but only TH2 will help NM/rare/ex/anythingworthwhile drops.

I hold to TH1 being helpful, just negligible in comparison to TH2.

To the person I'm responding to, I'm pretty confident that DRG was just lucky.

I just killed this guy 5 times in a row last night with no drop. Once at 95% full moon and once at 98% full moon. This isn't the first time i've killed him multiple times in the same night without a drop. I think SE needs to do something about this its ludacris, i'm like 1/25 on him. The bracers are only worth 1 mil, so i dont see why such the stinky drop rate. If you know some magic trick to make this thing drop please post it.

Just soloed this bad boy as 48THF/NIN

He's about as hard as Mimas with more HP.... in other words... really easy. His acc. sucks, and the only bad part is charm. He doesn't regen while you are charmed, so you just wait it out and keep kicking his ***. Assuming there's no one else there that is.

If you are soloing this as THF, just keep him blinded, and you'll be fine. Heal with bloody bolts (I think i used 4).

What a pushover.

If it matters, he popped on 57% moon, firesday

I used to camp this with DRK got my gloves on 7th kill, now im back here camping and waiting for invite for my ninja this thing pops quite shortly and i rest a bit hp aswell as NPCs MP.

I pull it with Hyoton: Ni after he has called hes pet. Fighting goes smoothly he and hes pet barely hit me i can easily recast Utsusemi Ni again and again. Somewhere middle i guess, i get link with another and shadows are fading more quickly. I need to start using ichi as well and i used my Blade: Chi on it. Because the link and Enkes 2h (Familiar) which enchances pets strenght i get hit more often and my hp has dropped down to 400. At this point my NPC casts Cure IV and im back to full hp.

Enkes dies and drops socks, gives 33exp (i was 51 ninja/thf)and i had exp band on
Mimas gives 15-22 exp each kill too so this Enke wasnt too much better than Mimas.

I was hoping to get drop but not expecting since the drop rate aint the best, better luck next time.

I'm 1/1 on him so far. I was up there farming thunder clusters and pot shards, when I just happened to see him on widescan. I did a 908 rampage on him too, whereas most of the time I do anywhere from 550-650 on those Gigas up there.

Well Enky and I go way back.
Before I quit for 11 months back in May 05, I was about 5/37. I was fine with that.

Now upon my return I was hoping for similar results.
But it has been a month and I have yet to get a drop.
0/41...

It has become kinda funny. In a twisted way :(

1/22 on Ogygos since my return as well.
And that 1 was on kill 21 ><

Well, just killed this guy for my first time. Was easy. Came in, stayed for about 3 hours, and the thing pops (finally...). I get claim with Dia (RDM/BLM 65/32).

Fight is going well I suppose. Just like every other giga I've killed so far in the area, but with a lot more HP and higher defense. So it took about twice as long. But when I got him him to 95% HP, I saw a big rock thrown at me, then realized I was being attacked by everything in the room. /sigh. So, just because they were annoying me (messing with my camera view), I Sleepga. I had to recast about 5 times, and it never landed on this guy, just the others and the bat pet. I didn't have Tabard, but still. This guy can resist pretty well. Paralyze, Slow, and Blind landed, but I didn't need them. I just enjoy seeing mobs do absolutely nothing to me. >.>'

Well.... 0/1. And now I need sleep. Guess I'll try again tomorrow if it's not overcamped. Next time though, I'll either bring /WAR or /THF. /WAR for claiming. This thing is camped often. /THF for....duh, TH. Well, I've got a better record on this than Mimas still. 0/5 in the time I camped this guy (just ran into it 5 times). =/



EDIT: Walked back and saw the treasure chest spawned in the room with the MAgic Urns. Started killing stuff to get a key, and never did. Walked my way to the opposite room of where I found the NM last, and there he was. Couldn't have been 20 minutes after his last pop. And he already had a bat, so it'd been sitting there for a bit. 0/2. >_<

My SMN friend said he had a run in with him. He was just killing the bats around him and then enky charmed him and his avatar, then a guy walked into the room and the avatar and my friend started attacking the guy. so i beleive if your a SMN with an avatar out and you get charmed, so will ur avatar.

pets can't get charmed. I use SMN to kill this NM all the time. Carby cant tank Enk and bats, plus all 3 nearby NQ gigas if they link ... at once and still end the fight with above 95% HP.

gogo smn

I was farming for Lightning/Light clusters and the stone slab things that the Stonemasons 'Supposedly' drop (I say supposedly because I haven't gotten one drop yet ;_; ). I seen a lvl 75 THF/NIN Taru sitting in J-8, and assumed he was waiting for Light or Lightning weather as was I. Especially because when I started to turn around and go back, it became Lightning weather, and the Taru used Flee and ran off.

After about 5 minutes, I had made my way back to J-8, and Lo and behold, there was Enkelados just standing there. After I looked him up on this site real quick to check his lvl (which didn't help... lol) I decided to go ahead and kill him. Laughed when he tried to charm me ( o.O ) and got Gigas Socks and his bracelets! Thought I might get a couple thousand for them. Had no clue they'd be worth 2 Million!!! (Bahamut server.) Can't wait until they sell, now!

We've been camping this guy, for about 8 hours now. We've seen one pop, and we got the drop, so I'm 1/1 on him, but I'd rather be 2/2 or at least 1/2. Eh, maybe he'll pop soon.

EDIT: After 14 hours of camping, we did it. I'm 2/2 on this guy now. Thank you Jicent for sticking with me on camping him, and not killing me and waiting for me to be uncharmed! Hooray! I had a chest ****** when I saw the drop.

I am lv75 RDM, I have subbed NIN, BLM, and DRK on him DRK probably being the most fun... 700+ Vorpal Blade XD Yes, Please. Anywho, PH is Bonecutter, popping 12min after ToD. I have had back to back spawns as well as 6hr spawn spreads. Patience is key because Enky does seem to like to drop at least one pair a day or so it seems from the days I have camped. I am 4/20ish and I have been charmed 4x, once costed my poor lv71 BLM g/f to die swiftly from my newly aquired Joy toy but it was fun and she laughed. Full Moon be prepared to get charmed regaurdless, I had Protect and Shell IV, Stoneskin, Blink, Phalanx up and still was charmed. I do have a Numinous Shield so assuming +10 light helps resist charm he is one tough cookie to still get through all that. I've watched lv47-48's duo him, and 52+ solo. It's all chance of charm. If Enky has bats out he will use familiar and not charm you, he can only charm you if he has no pet. Suggestion being, if you are alone in zone (most of the time I am) then wait for bats to be spawned, at most it may take 3 minutes. Good luck and happy camping!

AH - 2.3 mil as of today

So I was bored tonight and decided to Camp Enky's little brother Ogy... I had nothing better to do and I just got Hexa Strike tonight. So I get Ogy to pop, only I'm fighting something else. This Ranger who was camping Enky comes outta nowhere and claims him. I was a little mad.. LOL.. after about half an hour more I decide to head upstair and camp Enky. The Ranger and I are in the Same room.. Enky pops, ranger goes to use bow and I cast Holy... Bam I have claim right! use Hexa Strike one time and the ******* Charms me.. I'm decked out in +ACC and +STR gear and was using a Darksteel Maul... The Ranger goes to Fight him and of course because I'm charmed I'm fighting the Ranger. I was hitting him pretty hard... and I killed him! I was slightly amused but I also felt bad.. soon as I was uncharmed I raised him and then claimed Enky again. Kicked his **** the second time.. but alas.. no drop!

Enkelados is complete Lottery pop and either appears in F-8 J-8. The PH for Enk is Gigas Bonecutters and only one will pop like Enk in those positions. The repop on Bone/Enk is 5 in game hrs so if you kill the Bone/Enk at 5:00 next pop will be at 10:00 and it takes about 14 in game mins max for Bone/Enk to pop. Complete Lottery means you dont have to wait 1 or whatever real time hrs for he to be up again

Camped this guy for couple of hours just yesterday. First time around me and a WHM from my LS camped it. It popped and we forgot about it being a BST, so I got charmed and took down the WHM against my will. The whole time we were there though we only saw 2 other people run past, neither seemed to be interested in the NM.
We took it down 4 times, did decent damage to it with me being 51WAR/25NIN, The battle took no more than 5 mins max. With nobody else camping it we just waited for it to pop its bat before attacking. After he Famileared the bat seemed to be hitting me for around 40 damage, which is 10 more than the Giant himself hit for per swing so if you're a spot low it may be a good idea to take down the bat after he 2 hours. The bat only took a couple of swings to kill.
Also whilst killing the Bonecutter placeholders I noticed before each pop there was an extra Bonecutter in addition to the usual one which seemed to spawn at an odd time. I also had to kill the other giants to ge the Bonecutter to pop.
Also if you're camping in pairs or groups at a lower level it might be best for the tank to uniquip weapons and cancel buffs at around 50% HP remaining if you're going to claim it before it brings its bats out so you dont cause too much hassle to your fellow camper, although I have never tried that yet.
The WHM also said he tried casting Erase and Sleep on me whilst I was charmed but he got the message "You cannot attack this target" Not sure if its the same for meleeing, probably is.

Just a few observasions I made while i was there, hope it helps someone.

OK, I stumbled upon this guy after exping off the magic pots two floors up. Unfortunately had no jugs on me but figured I could take him anyway at 65 BST with no pet. Yeah, he's not that tough. All I got was a pair of socks though. I see here that he can charm characters. Well when I fought him he had a pet bat, so I'm wondering if he only charms players when he has no pet because he never tried it on me. Of course if people are spawn camping this guy, he'll never have time to get a pet out anyway since he'd be claimed shortly after popping.

He cannot charm you when his bats are out. He'll still 2hr, but all it will do is make the current pet bats tougher. The degree of toughness, i don't know.. but they didn't bother me much as a 68DRG/34THF.

However if his bats aren't out and he 2hrs, you're as good as charmed.

Ok funny story it was late and I had nothing to do so I went to camp Enke as 66 thf. I did not get first pop it was on the other end <such is life> they did not get drop. i had to eat so i logged off. when i re logged on just 4 min after i logged there was pop a lvl 74+ war got claim so i said GL and sat back and watched he had it about 3/4 health then all of i sudden the Enke name goes yellow. im like WTF thinking he had connection lost <fillter were on> NEVER saw he got charmed <so 74+ can be charmed> Arrowa away>>>. Soo as soon i attacked it the War came and stated attacking me. before i could figure out what was going on <too dumb to perfect dodge and warp scroll> i was dead after like 5 hit from WAR + Enke. Then a high lvl Nin came in and killed Enke < i couldnt tell if War was still charmed and fighting the Nin too > so currently im dead on the floor hopeing that when i relog a WHM will be camping it. The saddest part of the story no one got drop.

I was camping Ogygos for his bracelets as they are now upto 2.5mil on Asura. No pop after about 45 mins camping and im getting sleepy so i thought id try Enkelados, but as War45/Thf22 i didnt think I stood a chance.

So, i get upto the next floor, check the two circular rooms, and there he is! unclaimed. So, i kill a couple of the gigas near him and then rest, still no claim. I then ate some rice dumplings, called out my lvl33 npc healer and voked him.

The crazy thing is, I won!! :D But, no drop :( I just wanted to say that with my npc out and some decent attack food, he was fairly easy for a war45 ^^
