I love this guy ^^ I camp necklaces pretty regularly, and he's the guy I warm up on. Always there to greet me, to say hello, and give me another knife :P

Musta killed him about 50 times with various different jobs now. The first time I saw him my heart almost stopped :P confused him with Torrent I guess.

But still, he's fun fodder :)

This guy was a pansy. Checked as "impossible to gauge" but died like "too weak to be worthwhile." Good times, great oldies. On to the dragon and rank 3!

I sure wish I could use that aspir knife for my blm sub, tho...

Why do people bother to post that this item is useless, they shud know full well that any item that is rare/ex means its either very hard to get *as it has 100% drop rate this is not the case* or it is needed for a quest, as this quest gives you warp II then i see this a one of the best money saving NON NM'S in the game. And as a side note, ex means u cant sell the item, rare means you can hold 1 of said item

About the knife:

It just drains it from the enemy
I don't know how many times this has been said or how many times it takes to get the message through.

Useless knife, looks cool though.

WHo ever said that NM's had to be Impossible to gauge to be an NM?
NM only refers to the fact of the monsters being location specific and not found all over vanadiel

moreover has anyone ever thought that maybe the reason why a lvl 50 can see him as impossible and a lvl 20 as easy is because of their jobs

different classes may be better at judgng the ability of NM's based on the job of the NM

THATS a definition of an NM for those who are pondering about the /check.

Aspir knife for MP drain
# Apr 12 2005 at 5:14 PM Rating: Decent
8 posts
I only think the drain mp additive would be good for lvling brd, seen how they usually use whm as sub job and they dont have the most mp. So it would be rather usefull to have mp drain with a knife to restore it. I guess that's what it is for...
this guys a joke

This is no NM.
There are absolutely zero campers on this thing as:

2) Rare/Ex, not sellable
3) It sucks

Farming necklaces in Giddeus and I saw this guy 3 times, killed him in 2 hits or so.

This guy has a high spawn rate, because, I was in giddeus for an hour yesterday, and I saw him killed by pc's three times! I never did fight him, because every time I saw him, he was already fighting someone else. I will get the knife later to say I got it, I guess.

Not all named monsters are notorious monsters. Both Eyy Mon and Zhuu Buxu the Silent are named monsters with a 100% drop rate and very short respawn time.

The items they drop are for the Rank 2-3 missions from Bastok and San d'Oria, if they choose to go to Windurst first.

These 2 named monsters are similar to Fodderchief Vokdek, the orc that you must defeat if you're doing Mission 2-3 from Bastok or Windurst and you decide to go to San d'Oria first.

All Notorious Monsters con Impossible to Gauge, regardless of your level, job, race, fame, or rank. They also have lower drop rates and longer respawn times, as they're not involved with any scripted mission events such as the Named Monsters for the various 2-3 Missions.

Well I was farming today in the giddus and decided to start a train.^^; so I went and fell down the hole where you need to go to camp Hoo Mjuu. Yagudos wont fall down the holes so they have to go the long way.... climbing walls. So when I was up where Hoo Mjuu was the train caught up to me. So I took them down 1 by 1. And I saw the train took Ivvy Mon to me:D so I killed the train, got lots of stuff, and got the knife which I'll get no matter what ><

I managed to solo him as a lvl 20 thf/ 10 mnk
I used perfect dodge and started with a SA

This guy is much harder then he cheaks if you don't have a -ga spell to get rid of the shadows.

now i have the knife sitting in my inventory... too bad im from san d'oria... DOAH!

it was a fun fight though, with me ending with about 4hp
Starting over is tough.
Starting over with no money, no friends, and in a different world than when you first started, is much harder.

Actually his spawn time is 15 minutes, i was doing Rank 2-3 with two LS buddies so we were camping panara shields, i had my timer next to me and it spawned every 15 minutes, and as far as i could tell knife drop is 100%

Please correct me if im wrong.

This guy barely even nicked me, and I was doing tons of damage to him with my Bee Spatha. I killed him once and gave the Aspir knife to the Yagudo, and I killed him again for his knife. I still have his knife in my mog house.

I was searching for my Giddeus key as a level 25 Monk/12 Warrior. Seeing that this guy was a NM, I attacked him. Unfortunatly, he got to a spot where I couldn't reach him, so I just decided to walk away. He called around 15 of his buddies and chased after me. I finally got sick of getting hit for 1 damage that I turned around and too out each Yagudo (including the NM) with two punches each. I got nothing...

If you want another bit of evidence that he's not really a NM, most NMs aren't regular spawns with placeholders usually spawning in their place. These Yagudos on the other hand spawn regularly. They're more like unique monsters, rather than notorious. Same as the Orcish Warchief. I'm sure there are some unique Quadavs too.

Not to mention that fact that he cons too weak to be worthwhile...

he is a NM like other NMs that are used in missions they spawn quicker then others for ex. bubbly bernie you just have to place quu down and he comes or forger for the SAM quest comes every five minutes so he is a NM deal with it just because he is weak and annoying he is still a NM along with Zhuu Buxu the Silent, just deal with it.

Everytime I have ventured to Giddeus, I have encountered him. He is in the tunnel that connects the East side to the West (closest to West Entrance) He was rated as easy the first time I fought him, and I died (tried to save another). Went back there as a whm22/blm12 and attemped again. Beat him, with some difficulty, and received the Aspir Knife.

This guy shows 'Impossible to Gauge' to me at lvl 50, so I conclude he is a NM...but, he is a particularly useless NM since the items dropped are Rare/Ex. I went to kill him cause I wanted an aspir knife for my low level thief.

lol... omg you guys call him dumb? Not all NM's say Easy Prey if your a high enough level... I have a lvl 52Thf/26Nin and kill Jackety Eared-Jack, Spiney Sipi, Tom Tit Tat, Leaping Lizzy ALL THE TIME. It still says "Impossible To Gauge". This guy is not an NM, he just has a different name because he is for a quest. If it shows "Easy Prey, Decent Challenge" and so on, then it is not a NM. Get it straight please.

The other Ninja NM Yag drops the Parana Shields, both (Aspir Knife and Parana Shield) are quest items.
