Tonight i was wandering around sauromugue completing training page 5, the one with tabars and weapons, as a 46thf/dnc. Get over to the area where this thing spawns, and there he is sitting there. I'd fought it before at around 56mnk, kind of a pain, but i thought "what the ****, i have reraise, 300tp for heals, and i'm always attacking nms that i know nothing about, worst case i get pwnd and reraise" Ranged attack with acid bolt misses, engage. it hits me a little more than half of it's attacks, averaging 60-70 damage per hit. no big deal, my curing waltz heals me for 69 so i figure i'm all right. then he uses hammer beak for 200+ damage. ouch, maybe i won't be ok. burn 100 tp healing back to full and continue. uses poison pick a few times, no big deal, minimal damage. after about half hp he pops hammer beak again, along with a flurry of double attacks. hp in the red, so i decide to perfect dodge and bring my hp back to full. once pd wears the thing still seems to be double attacking more often then he should, manage to finish him off with about 50tp left after all the attacks i hit him with and starting with 300tp. no drop this time around, but was happy to have beat it 10 levels prior to my win with mnk ^^

Camped this bird for about an hour and a half as a 59mnk/28thf. Another 50ish monk came in and competed, but I think he got bored and left. I just kept killing the 2 cockatrice PHs, found the bird, killed it, and got the drop. 1/1 =) Also stole a giant feather, dropped a **** skin (lol..juvenile, i know), and another giant feather. Not bad. Moving on to the next.
I hate this NM so much. -.-

Over the weekend, I've been running through the Belt quests fluidly. Found boths rams one day and Morbolger the next day after just 45 minutes. Then I found Dodo for the first time, but no drop, so I just disregarded it and went out to camp Nue, who, after an hour and a half, I never found. Then a 7 hour ls party coaxed me into joining them, and directly after, I went back and got Nue's Fang 1/1. I was feeling optimistic and aimed to have done both Purple and Brown Belt quests in just two days. So I headed back to Dodo and found/killed him again. But again, no drop. Disappointing, but I would return the next morning to try again.

Next morning before school, 0/3.

The following evening, 0/4, 0/5.

Yesterday, 0/6, 0/7, 0/8.

...Why SE? Just why?

Lol, and of course I go to camp it and after 10 minutes it pops and I get the drop. XD

Just had an annoying fight with this giant chicken as a MNK53/RNG19. I had been farming the Tabar Beaks in the area and was curious about NMs in the area. So I look on here and find that he spawns right where I'm at. I farm the PH and a couple in the local vicinity (I know greedy) for about an hour and POP goes the chicken. I Hundred Fist him and he goes down pretty easily, no drop.

I continue farming the Tabar Beaks and get down to about 800 life when Dodo pops directly in front of me less than two hours after the previous fight. Not having expected him this early I was not rested and a couple of other farmers were in the area. So I finish off the Tabar Beak I am fighting and proceed to Dodo. I have no abilities left but counterstance and I am fairly poorly equipped at 53 (hence the farming). We take a few moments knocking each other around until we are both down to nill. He gets the final hit off first. I HP back to Port Jeuno.

I am now deleveled to 52 and pi$$ed. I grab a choco in Port and race out to where I was knocked down hoping to see if someone polished him off and got the drop. My luck he is back to full health and no one is near him. I hop off, still have 10 min to Hundred Fists, so I popped Focus and Dodge, used Chakra around 800 HP, and Raging Fists 3 times. Finally he drops and I am the proud owner of my first piece of the Brown Belt. Now that I have this its on to the other two.

I was out leveling my Fellow and just as my fellow leaves I start heading back to Jeuno and I see the Deadly Dodo. I checked it and when I saw it was an NM I attacked it. I soloed it as a 51 NIN/ 25 WAR using all Ninjutsus and it took about 10 min to take down beacuse it had about 4500-4700 hp. It never hit me once (Utsusemi: Ni FTW) and I got the Dodo skin on the kill and I was WTF was this for and I checked it out and lo and behold it was for the brown belt which sells for 450-500 k on Shiva. Now I am going to get the other two NM's and make me some gil! I'll update when I get them!
interesting fact about this NM and certain others.

So, I noticed something interesting when camping this NM today. It shares a characteristic with certain NMs I have camped in the past. If you are using widescan, you'll notice, as previously mentioned, that it has 2 PH's directly below the first Champaign Coeurl. Respawn is exactly 5 minutes on both, give or take 2-5 seconds. Now strangely enough, every of the 4 times i've killed it, it has a bit of a "delay". Meaning, if the PH were to spawn in 5:02, then if Deadly Dodo is going to spawn it could be well into the area of 5:20! This is confirmed with, and without widescan.
Other NMs that do this:
NOT Leaping Lizzy, tested many many times.
The 2 Ram NMs you have to kill for purple belt.

Anyways, just thought i'd share some info, hope this helps some people.
Good luck on your Brown Belts!

Took 5+ hours of camping for this NM to pop. So people are not lying when they say that it can take a long time. I killed the 2 ph's every 5 minutes without fail.

Had my brother head out during the last 30 minutes with his 51 thief for TH2 so I would have a better chance on the drop. 1/1 on this NM.

Well camped this bad boy for 6 1/2 hrs last night with a couple friends...no pop >_> so i decide to call it a night.

wake up ask a person who was camping it also if it poped......it did...10 mins after i logged X_X

couple hrs later decided to try again...nohin so far, killing Taber # 40 and am praying it will pop

btw took 3 days to find ToD on Morbolger got claim 1/3
have'nt done Nue yet, hopefully it will be easy

did rams yesterday for purple belt 1/1 on RR and 1/1 on LL ^^

This guy is tougher then he seems with all the mobs in the area getting in my way. I was a lvl 50 Blm when I fought him. I would try to nuke, sleep, then rest but with all the gobs in the area I kept getting aggro.

So then someone I knew sent me a /tell from Jeuno I asked him to come help me and he was outside in 2 minutes and Dodo was dead shortly there after. Got the drop too.
Exterminate all rational thought. This is the conclusion I have come to.

Currently on my 6th hour of camping this NM without it showing up once. I've killed it two times previously, gotten the drop 1/2, once for myself, this one is going to be for my other character. This NM has two placeholders, on widescan they appear just after a Champaign Coeurl, and they spawn every 5 minutes. I had a macro set to /wait 60 /wait 60...5 times, then /party Pop! <call14>. I kill the first placeholder, hit that macro, then kill the other one. When I hear the call, the first PH is respawned, and the second is soon to come. It's an interesting idea of how to keep track of time if you don't have 5 minute cooldown abilities.

This was the most helpful post I found in this thread. Got it on the first drop. :D After some hours of camping as /thf, I got tired of feeling like a chicken with its head cut off, and used this method. I'm very pleased. ^^ Thank you again for this idea.

Have some questions in regards to the PH. around J6-K6 areas, there are around 4 beaks in total, however some posts say there are only 2 PH. So, if it is actually in fact 2 PH, which ones are they? the ones on lower hills or upper hills?
Finally got mine!

Got 4 consecutive Deadly Dodos today!
7PM PST 9:30PM PST 11:53PM 2:30AM

Wasn't having much luck subbing THF for TH1 so on my 6th run I went Nin/War & camped w/ a Brd friend. There were 2 other RNG campers at the scene. I kept my eye on them while my Brd friend went to hunt Deadly Dodo. I think it was a pretty good lock down. :)

Popped 2.5 hours after each Deady Dodo kill. We started killing PH after 2 hours though.

I've been checking for this guy off and on for awhile now but tonight was the night I decided to officially camp him. Another MNK was there, higher level than me, and I thought he might be camping the Dodo but he was just there for meat/skin so we teamed up! He got a bunch of skins and crap, and I got Dodo skin. Popped after about 45-60mins of camping.

First try! ^_^

best to come /rng or rng/ or have somone with rng.

the Taber Beaks resawn every 5 mins after death, and there are only 2 that are placeholders, so if you kill one, and 8 minutes later no respawn, it's probably cuz somone killed it, and if that's the case it may have been deadly dodo. this is why rng is helpfull.

after you kill one try setting a 5 min ability like hide, or scavange, or whatever you have that takes 5 mins to recast. when the counter hit's 0:00 always expect deadly dodo to be up and run like crazy to find him, or spam widescan. (there is a 4 second delay on widescan, and the real time of death is when his name disapears; not when it's grey; so you're better off using your 5min abil then). if it's just a taber your 5 min ability is right there, so kill it and set the ability again. i'd also suggest you bring thf45+ for th2 (not solo thf 45 mind you as you would probably die) if you come thf/rng bring your thf as 55-60 cuz it'll be tough otherwise.

spawn is 1-3hours i've never seen nor heard of longer than 3hours except from the forums here, somones says it took 6 hours, i hate to say it but it probably popped after 3 hours and some rng on chocobo probably saw it or something and tracked it with claim in 10.4 seconds then finished it off and ran away.

Actually i have proved this wrong, it was actually a funny story. I killed both taber baeks and used my timers exactly when the mob disappeared. i was relaxing just watching my 5min timers and then all of a sudden, Deadly Dodo walks right past me from behind me with about 5 or 6 seconds left on my timer! lmao! And yes i know which 2 tabers are placeholders and i was acurate with my timers, so this leads me to believe ToD is when u first kill it not when it disappers.

Unfortunately, that doesn't prove anything wrong. 5-6 seconds could easily compensate for serverside lag. The accepted method has been to wait for the monster to disappear for a long time now and base it on the Vana'diel clock rather than your real life clock. **** if I remember the timing for five minutes on the Vana clock, however. >.> I use a stopwatch. Either way, you should always start widescanning or running around early. Sometimes a PH will pop late, and sometimes it will pop a little early.

right after the /tell i see it
i go for it and kill it, no sweat

btw, this was all done within a 15 min time period

This **** is on a 2-6(Atleast 6) hour repop.
Spent 6 hours there, only saw one pop.

Sucks how people who spend 6 hours get nothing, but Ricechrispies who are there for less then 20min gets him.

And before you all start whining that i must have missed him.

I killed all but 4 Placeholders, the 4 i was watching getting killed.

And the SOB pops on the furthest point to the Northwest. And he runs out of Dia range, when i am casting.

I just killed him as a 44MNK/22THF with the help of three Hi-Potions +3. I used Boiled Cockatrice Meat as food since it has the same attack modifier (+22%) as meat mithkabobs but it also adds "resist petrify" (he never tried to petrify me though so I can't say if this helped or not.)

It went like this: Boiled Cockatrice Meat -> Chi Blast -> Dodge -> Focus -> Hundred Fists. I then used Raging Fists as soon as I got 100tp and used Chakra when I got down to 700hp. After that it was just a matter of popping +3 hi-potions and landing the punches. Luckily my accuracy was high enough (or his evasion was low enough ;) so I only missed two punches the whole fight.

Think I had almost 300/964 hp when the fight was over.

...no drop though ;; (0/1)

0/4 (2 from last year)

2 today:

Camped at 2:00 AM and he popped a little after 4 AM, nothing, not a single drop.

Logged on at Noon and he's up, unclaimed. Killed, no drop.

This guy is a d!ck.

Showed up 10 minutes after I did on my first camp attempt. Set my hopes up for nothing, as it didn't drop.

Spent 3 hours there, killing those 2 Tabar Beaks nonstop. No second pop. God, I hate this game sometimes.

At what lvl can I solo him 'safely'? I'm 52 THF/NIN, capped marksmanship with bloody/acid/blind/sleep bolts. I also have +40-something evasion (full crow set, dodge earrings, emp pin, nomad's mantle, other +1s, etc). I fought tabar beaks in the area while gaining TP for THF AF2 and took no damage, and had a very easy time recasting utsu if it fell. I have been consistently soloing soldier crawlers in CN to lvl my NPC easily, so how much easier/harder would DD be than that?

Answered my own question. DD IS soloable by a 52THF/NIN, it just takes a while. Status bolts are HUGE (DD was hitting once every 4-5 or so swings without blind on, maybe 1 in 10 with). Fight took about 5 minutes or so while hitting for 40 dmg or so per hit, got 23 exp off the fight too ^^. You can also steal a giant bird feather from him.

I don't know about soloing him with any other job at that level tho. THF already has super high evasion and I had quite a bit of evasion+ equip (+49 I think). Just a note: he was hitting for 50-60 dmg per hit when he landed and I had utsu down, and he attacks FAST (obviously...cockatrice type XD).

Just got my dodo skin. I was 1/3 on it.

1st claim - 75 THF/NIN with Thief's Knife, 75 BLM/RNG, 61 RDM/THF (me). No drop, but I killed it with a nuke rather than letting the THF kill it.
2nd claim - 70 MNK/WAR, 61 RDM/THF (me). No drop.
3rd claim - 61 RDM/THF (me). Drop.

Claim 1 was days prior. 2 and 3 were on the same day, and the pops were 4 hours apart. 1 and 2 popped in (J-6), but 3 popped in (I-6), even though all the information I read said the spawn was confined to (J-6)-(K-6).

If I had to do it over again, I'd go as /RNG for Wide Scan. Treasure Hunter doesn't help too much, based on my own experience and the experiences with others; ymmv.

Man DoDo was a SOB I was 1/16 on it, but I got it finly and got the vine from a bcnm and the fang was not hard was 1/3 on it.

I found that the repop time was about 3hr (+/- 45mins) I tended to long and come back about 2hr 45mins after I killed it.

But rember too its not allways like that I stayed up one night for 4.5hrs and finly it pop but no drop also sub rng it helps lots.

So I'm reading all these stories, and it sounds like the drop is fairly rare, so I decided to share my story.
I regularly farm in this area, even though it takes awhile I find it very lucritive. So im in the Spawn area, in fact I didnt even know there was an NM here other than Roc. I chuggin along and I see a Tabar Beak.. I run up and start beating away, then I use Guillotine (I'm a lvl 63 DRK) and I notice it doesnt do anything close to what it should be doing. I'm like WTF! SO i check the name... o.O Deadly Dodo! I tell my LS that I basically ran right into it without even knowing :)! So i whopp its ***, brought me down to about 700hp out of 1100. I didnt even use Drain. Got the drop. DIdnt know what it was for but asked a lvl 67Nin later who was camping it and he told me it was for the Brown Belt.!
If your camping it good luck to you, may you get the odds like I did!

I ran out to this spawn area and found Dodo up and unclaimed. Got the drop. 1/0 on all three brown belt mobs. This is highly unusual for me - usually I am the one who can never get a claim or a drop :P

pld67/nin31 - with ninjutsu blind, paralyze, and blink, this bird did zero damage to me, literally. It was pathetically easy to solo.

Note: a thunder elemental was next to this thing the whole time. I even tried to back away from the ele, but everywhere I went, it would drift over to me again. Luckily I was using ninjutsu and I never needed to cure or flash or anything. So if you are going to camp this ugly guy, make sure either you don't rely completely on magic, or that you can take on an ele at the same time, just in case.

It's Christmas Eve and I'm rolling into Sauromague with the rulers of SoV (Soldiers of Valor on Sylph). After calling Tabars for like 30 minutes, Dodo pops and I got the drop. He spawned right in the center of K6. Had Thf/War, Rdm/Nin, Mnk/Thf (me), and Rdm/Whm. Killed it NP really quickly with a couple of SCs.

1/1 on this NM. I'm very lucky and know it (especially after reading some of the horror stories about this NM). Only need Nue now....maybe I won't have to rely on Santa for a Brown Belt. Peace-

Yep, that was a good fight Yogi, I had been there an hour before you joined me. A MNK 60+ had been there camping Dodo for god knows how long. He said he had 0/30 when I got there. It popped and he claimed, got drop and left.

i've been camping this thing on and off for a few days now, finally got the skin. now i am 1/4 on it. I feel kinda bad though, i logged out in his spawn area last night and when i logged back on today there was a 60 something mnk wandinging around, so i ask him if he is hunting dodo and he says hes been there for a couple hours camping it and he is 0/5. Then right behind him dodo pops, i grab it and get the skin after about 2 mins of logging on. I feel kinda bad about it, but oh well, that is the luck of the draw. hope that mnk gets his soon even though he was pretty rude to me after i got the drop.

Here's my tale of the BB.

My friend stopped lvlin his monk cuz it was hella xpensive. After being called Gimp for too long, he decided to **** with it. Time to get my BB and stop the ridicule.

I went along as my 55THF/WAR to help, cuz he deserves the belt so much. I claimed Morbolger in a room of 15 campers, had time to walk up to morbolger and voke from across the room ^^ My mnk pal gets vine

Feeling good we head out for Nue. We get there and withing 10 mins, Nue pops. I claim Nue, and the Fang drops ^^. My mnk pal gets fang.

Feeling too good to be true we run out to the Saur..... whutever, to try for Deadly Dodo. We get out there. 5 mins later, Dodo pops. Rdm pal that joined us claims, I kill. No drop =(
We stick around for another hr, Dodo pops. I claim and kill. Skin drops. My mnk pal gets the skin.

So within a matter of 4 hrs from spawn of Morbolger, my mnk pal is now the proud owner of his very own Brown Belt =) With a very good boost to my NM list =)

So now I'm:
1/1 Claim on Morbolger (drop doesnt count think it's 100%)
1/1 Claim/Drop on Nue
1/2 Claim/Drop on Deadly Dodo

Don't mean to rub it in, but I needed to get it out as im Still 0/37 on LL =(

i think its safe to say dodo has 4600-4800 HP, but dodo has some of the worst accuracy ive seen, being a drk i have a ton of EVA- gear on and he still only landed 3-4 hits on me

I recently completed the Purple belt quest and thought I'd start the next. Using THF 53/ RNG 20 I ran around and cleared the area of Tabars.. after a while Deadly popped, Fled to him, had time to SA and started to hit him.. and realized.. I was doing almost no damage to his health bar. I used at least 3 tp moves, Sharpshot and bloody bolts for hp regain, but he had a huge amount of HP for something this level. Didn't have to perfect Dodge, thought about it after some +100 crits in a row but he started missing again. Used maybe 40 Bloody bolts though. hard to remember what I had at the start.

At the end he dropped a slice of meat, no skin, I totaled up the damage I did to him with a calculator and got 4508.. just.. lots.

On a side note, I kept sleep bolting him and SA again once a minute to kill him faster, I'd only suggest this if no one else is around you at all.. who knows who might nab it from you.

Also, if it hasn't been posted..Tabars can be hidden from.. Steal/Hide = giant bird feather for you. Then SA and kill if for the meat ^^ Didn't try hiding from Deadly.

I'v camped him 3x now. Missed claim 1st time to a RDM. 2nd time farming/camping I got the claim but no drop. 3rd time again farming/camping I got him cause I was the only 1 there. I stole a Giant Bird Feather after his death I got another Giant Bird Feather, Cockatrice Meat, and Dodo Skin. I'm was a 64 WAR/THF at the time.
Happy Hunting.

id like to tell my story about this little ******, it all starts on Monday, 10/16/05...i decided to go camp him, im there for about 1.5 hours, he spawns...i got him down to about 1/5 HP(51mnk/war) but i die, i would have won if my 2 hour was ready :(...so a PLD from my LS is near, raises me, and kills it, no drop...so im hanging out waiting for it to respawn and a rdm comes, and we join forces, 3 hours later while im AFK it spawns and he kills it, he says i can lot, but i decide to be honorable and pass since i didnt help kill it, maybe i should have lotted. 5 hours, and 2 more spawns later, still no drop. i have to log for bed, i come back the next day after work to begin anew, not a single spawn from 7pm to 10pm when i went to bed, wednesday, same thing, log on right after work, im alone for maybe an hour, then by some dumb luck, a ninja comes right when its going to spawn, kills it, no drop, he gets the next spawn as well and gets the drop :(...i log after another saddening night.

if you are like me, and extremely unlucky when it comes to drops and spawns, this can be a pain in the behind...im doing the BCNM for the nue fang.
