My friend had been borrowing my Walk mask for an age so i decided to rope him into helping us with this guy.

Was only going to hang around the spawn for about an hour, but he popped after about 30 minutes of just wiping out all of the Quadav on that shelf there. I'm aware that they're not all placeholders, but we needed something to do.

Got him with no competition around, and luckyily for me it dropped first time :)

i rate that as incredibly lucky given the drop rates i've been reading.

My friend is 67 PLD and i'm 60 DRG/23Thf(i'm working on it). but i think i could've duoed him pretty easily with my NPC and, if **** hit the fan, Spirit Surge was always an option.

I did 'waste' a TP wing too on him, even though we were in no danger of loosing, but it resulted in a nice 320 self skillchain. My one and only so far :) All and all a nice little outting.

Got my technique for hunting this guy down, usually i can get him to pop every hour on the hour. There are 3 Emeralds to keep an eye on, one to the left of spawn one to the right and one that can pop on either side. Only one of these is his place holder. One Emerald quadav will walk down to the lower lvl, he does not spawn there or atleast i havent seen it. Usually killing that one and that one only will get the NM popping pretty regular. Be patient sumtimes the Emerald that walks down to the lower lvl takes his sweet time. Also PH will pop in the area where the NM pops you can kill this Emerald and feel confident that it is his PH. One more thing, if his place holder isnt killed ina certain amount of time, i have seen it de-pop and reappear on the opposite side or in the NM's pop area. 1/45 on this ***** i could be rich on all the Duel rapiers ive tossed. Also... take note of the other 2 emeralds location becasue once you kill the PH 14 minutes later he will repop on either side and it can be easy to get them confused if you cant remember where the others were at.
Unvanquished has been vanquished! D:

I got him twice, 0/2 [Edit:(0/4)][Re-edit:{0/5}][Re-Re-edit:<0/7>][Re-Re-Re-Edit:[1/8]] valkyrie's mask, 2/2 [Edit:(4/4)][Re-edit:{5/5}][Re-Re-edit:<7/7>][Re-Re-Re-Edit:[7/8]] Duel rapier -.-
he spawned way out of that circle on the peninsula the first time, the 2nd was in the corner on the top right, third in the top left corner happy hunting
I also noticed (may just be random), but when i killed the PH on the top, he spawned right after, just thought maybe it would be something

So I camped this for about an hour. Got the claim, (whuch, btw, he can spawn a lil further out right than what the map says)and called out my NPC just in case since I was 60DRK/30THF. My NPC is set as a healer, but when he casted Chainspell, she Silenced him so he got no spells off!!! That of course made the figh easier. Two Guillotines later, it died and I got the mask. ^^ 1/1

I was getting a Red Mage testimonial one day when I saw this guy. I was in an NA party of four, and we teamed up with a JP party of 3 also in Beaudeux. The JP party leader was also the leader of the alliance.

So we were coming out and I was the first person to spot this guy. So I run over to him and I didn't recognize the name so I asked my LS what level he was and what he dropped. I guess everyone was sleeping cause no one said anything. So the JP WHM comes over and casts Silence on it and waits for the JP THF75 to come over and take it on with her, I'm guessing, for TH2. So I see the JP WHM start taking hits so I buff up and start it, seeing he couldn't have been too high of level. I kill it after awhile and see I got a Valkerie's Mask drop. I was excited then, I didn't know he dropped that, so I immediately lotted on it. Well, it took me a little while after the incident to realize this, but apparently the Silence that the JP WHM cast on the guy was a psuedo-claim. Well, the THF comes over a minute after I killed the NM and puts Quartermaster on him, so he gets the drop. So I start yelling at him. It was totally not fair. I didn't know what the NM was so I didn't cast on it, but I was still there first. The JP THF then reacts to my yelling by training a crapload of higher tier Quadav to me. It didn't kill me, I escaped, but this was definitely not a very good experience for me. I'm not the richest person in the world, so that 700k would have helped me quite a bit, while that THF probably had 100k stuffed in his mog couch.

Well second day in a row and second drop in a row, this time the moon is at 57% so i really think that doesn't make a difference with this drop. Poped about the same time as yesterday "9:30-9:45 cst". Well good luck to all and happy hunting

Camped him for about an hour and a half alone the whole time as a DRK68/WAR34, moon was at 5% new moon. Got the mask first try and used blind bolts so he only hit me once or twice. i would say if you have blind and bloody bolts use them cause when he uses Chainspell it don't feel to good XD but seeing as how guillotine silences he only got a couple spells off =P

I took Brim's advice below, although I still need to test this theory more, looks as though this hold true.
Kill the Emerald that runs down the lower level. Ga'bhu should spawn next.

0/9 on drop but I'm using my time farming coins, leveling NPC(31-39 from this zone) and getting skill ups on Markmenship.

Ok so here's my experience and thusly what I think (I could be wrong, if anyone has evidence to confirm or deny please post).

Anyways I believe there is 1 placeholder for this guy. To the region to the right and left of his spawn point are 2 other emerald Quadav spawns, I do not believe either of these are place holders, however the place holder might spawn in either area or anywhere inbetween. More notably the place holder will walk to the lower level (I've not seen it spawn there) I've killed the one on the lower level 2 or 3 times and Ga'Bhu showed up about 14 min. later

Here's a horrible pic, I circled the Emerald:

I've killed Ga'bhu 20 times, only got the mask the last time (95% moon), seen him show up as soon as an hr. and over 3 hrs. I killed him the other 19 times between 0%-93% moon, no drop. I did this as a 60 THF, many of the mobs check as EP, good for beastseals (I think I got 70 or so, about 15k exp. and probably stole over 15 stacks of mythril coins) Bloody bolts are your friend, what the Spinel they're BLM type and can tear you up more quickly than the others since Evasion won't help much.

Drop rate is terrible, waste of time to camp IMO for money (unless you're a thf and the beastseals and mythril coins ease the pain)

Other note: this is by far the friendliest NM camp I've seen I was by myself a lot but often times had other campers pull links off me and we'd chat in tells about how awful our luck was. Kinda funny.

Got the drop just now^^ Camped him twice, killed most quads, always the emeralds, not just in the circle above, but in the horseshoe pattern on the upper level. first, duel drop, after dispatching the ancient quad I was fighting with my wife, both went and smacked em gewd. No chainspell. 2nd time, almost an hour later to the T, found em chillin top left J-6, fought em alone as 60 DRG/RDM, he used chainspell and some useful spells that didnt do much to me ^^. Was at half mp, but still walked away strong. 1/2 on mask^^

Just killed him as BRD60/WHM30.
I claimed him with Carnage Elegy and hit him with Spirits Within for 470 DMG. He was really easy and could barely even hit me, i guess it was the 183 +16 Evasion.
When he was halfway dead he used Chainspell. Spammed Fire on me for some reason.. RDM dont have the highest INT i guess, Fire did 6-10 DMG each hit ; ;.
Anyways i got a pretty new Duel Rapier....

Oh yeah and i camped for about an hour.. some people were mad at me for getting the claim.. said they had been there for 3+ hours killing Emerald Quadavs.

0/15 on teh Mask.

Was going for 350k two months ago on Bismarck. Now it's jumped to 800k.

Bad thing about my last attempt at camping him was that the Galka WAR I was competing for the drop with was headed back to Jeuno just when he spawned. And at the same time he pops, I aggro 4 Quadav and have to finish them off.

Oh, and Mr. Unvanquished is only slightly harder for me to solo as a 57 DRG/RDM than the surrounding mobs. Chainspell isn't that bad, but you'll need to Silence him just in case. I'm just guessing, but I say he has around 3000 to 3500 HP. He did take 5 Pentas before he died on one of my attempts.

I just soloed Ga'Bhu as 56 THF/ 28 RNG. Heres how it went down:

I was farming Ooze/camping NM's in Beadeaux. Isee Ga'Bhu on widescan and KNOW that all the mobs on the top of the wall are EP to me and the onesw on the ground are T. But I say f*** it... could be a shot at a Valk Mask. So I run to that area and am actually able to move between/behind etc all the EP mobs along the way.
So I SATA and hit one of his shields... I have like 34 Bloody Bolts left and my 2 hour... thats about it... Ill just say this...
Ga'Bhu vs. Doom Round 1 Victor: Ga'Bhu by Bio/Poison
I HP, grab a X Potion, 3 stacks of bloodies, and a choco and do my best to haul **** back. I get there and see he's still on widescan... but there are about 7 new people in the area since I left... I figure someone will get him before I get all the way back over there... NOPE!!! No one was even ON his side. I manage to maneuver back to him with no aggro... SATA him and pull him back to the wall to try to avoid links..
I used a different strategy by everytime I had tp, I used Energy Drain(which I thought was useless), which drained his MP fast. I pounded away with my Corsairs and the Bolts... took me 46 bolts and my HP was down to 237, but I beat him. Got 41 xp, 90 gil, and a crappy Dual Rapier for my trouble. -_-

It spawned within 30 mins of camping with no other people camping him. Fought him as a Lv62 war/nin with about 95% life. I had to rampage him 3 times to kill him and his chainspell knocked me to about a 400 hp. When he started poking me for about 60 dmg each hit. Killed him with last rampage and only got a crummy rapier.

I wanted to camp this guy as my summoner, and thought that I might as well bring my thief sub along. I'm a 57SMN, and my THF is sorely underleveled (only lvl 16). So to counter my complete embarrasment, you know I went /anon.

After about 2 hours of killing only the quadav's in the J-5 to J-6 region (the upper level, I never went down to fight the gold/mythril/ancient quadav's), Mr. Unvanquished spawned. I wasn't fully healed when he spawned, so I wasn't as prepared as I had hoped. I was able to kill him after about 10 minutes. He never used his 2 hour, nor did I. I ended the battle with 102hp and 100mp. No Valk Mask, but I did get a shiny new Duel Sword (oh goodie...)


clarified where I was fighting

been camping this guy 25+ hours now i'm 0/6, so annoying, they definetly changed his spawn area, it's huge now, drop rate sucks, I'd say his spawn rate is like 2-5 hours, i've seen him take about 5 hours to spawn sometimes.

I was just running by going to farm some rubys and i wanted to try and save echo drops so i waited a min for Silence to go off and he popped right then. I whooped him, for some reason his buddys didnt link on to me until he died, there were standing inside of us the whole time not linking it was wierd, but the second he died i had 3 on me. Being 75blm i also whooped them though :D No drop just the Sword.

During the update congestion I was the only person in Beadeaux for close to 4 hours. I ended up leaving with a V Mask, Holy Phial, 2 Dodge Earrings, 1 Dual Rapier, 1 Marine Hat, a Power Crossbow and a bunch of other crap. Pretty good, close to 700k in items.

Oh, and the Dual Rapier is NOT a 100% drop. I killed Unvanquished 2 times in I'd guess 3 hours, and once I got just a V Mask, the next time I got just a Dual Rapier.

Soloed him twice so far at 58bst. I send a pet/mob at him then heel once it gets some hate to train him to a safe spot (where the slimes are) then release pet(like carby pulling) and call a jug pet(I use funguars). Jug pet solos him with no problem but 0/2 so far ; ;.

0/2 now. Another duel rapier. I'm done camping this guy, though, because as soon as I warped back to Jeuno, I placed a bid and got the mask for 100k less than the entire recent history. Now I'm broke, but at least I can sell my Walkure >.>

BTW, at lvl 69 BLM this guy is still a mother to solo! Maybe if I hadn't used DoT and tried sleeping him instead...

I was wondering can a 57War/Thf /Nin take this mob? If I go Thf, I would use Sleep Arrows to SA with or /Nin and duel axes. I have no clue about this NM, but it would be nice to smack him around a bit, especially for a nice drop..

Me a 50 rdm/blm and two LS friends 43drk/war and 50mnk/war camped this NM for a few hours. We managed to get the claim despite competition.

It started to rain during the battle. Somehow a broo agro'd and a Water Elemental agro'd from the magic. Two high levels, a DRK and a THF killed the broo but watched as we nearly killed the NM but the elemental (DC at 50) ended up taking all my MP for cures and killing us all.

Then the THF claims the NM and finishes it off. I think the THF (name: Sneakk) is a JP player, but has enough english knowledge to understand the pleas for help with the elemental that they could have easily dispatched. Not to mention this same THF earlier asked me for cures and I helped out.

Thnx for nothing Sneakk. If you're on fairy don't expect help from that mithra.

I normally look on this website for the majority of my research when it comes to info on quest and NMs, I have to say I am sorely disappointed in the infromation given by posters :(.

Here's my story: My Dragoon LS member says to me "It would be awesome if I could get a Walkure Mask". "Walkure's Mask eh?" I say "That's a BCNM drop, good luck with that... But hey! I got an idea, lets go camp Ol' Ga'Bhu Unvanquished and get a Valkyrie's Mask(@400k on Cerberus) and sell it, then with the funds we can buy you a Walkure Mask(@300k on Cerberus) So you can have your mask, and we get a profit in the meantime!". Sounds all good, I come on here to find that he is a "2-4 hour pop" based on the information I gather, and that he has two place holders that pop on the east and west of the circle where he "does not pop in, but close to" Oh well, we figure we'd camp his for 2-4 hours and see if we cant get lucky.

We head to Beadeaux. Getting to the area shown clearly marked in the map above, to find a lvl 75MNK/THF standing near the wall at J5. Like most NM campers I've seen, he stands still and never moves to the left or to the right. I myself like to remain mobile. We start killing the placeholders, wondering why the MNK himself isnt killing them, after about 2 or 3 times of this we notice that the only time he even moves is when an Iron Quadav pops Infront of him, he runs over and kills it, runs back to his spot and waits another 15 min to repeat, we find this odd, as we read only Emerald Quadav's are the placeholders.. Oh well! We continue to kill placeholders for about an hour, our LS members decide to show up and help us out so we add a lvl 56 RDM and 56 DRK to the fray, I myself was a lvl 70 RDM and the DRG 55. We kill the place holders one last time, My DRG friend decides he will kill the Broo that wonders around in the area, I was resting for MP along with the other RDM, when I noticed that the DRK's health was decreasing, I walked over to see what had agroed him only to find that the Iron Quadav the MNK had been killing every pop had Agroed him, and to my suprise I see Ga'Bhu right behind him, but not for long as the name flashes purple and I give a /wave "Did you get him" They asked "No, you guys were too busy messing around." Oh well, maybe next time. To my surpise, looking at the map, he spawned right inside the circled area which "he does not spawn in, but near". I decide to log for about and hour because he's a "2-4 hour" pop, and me and the DRG meet back for another try, we do the same as before, the MNK had left and didnt seem to come back, after exclaiming before he ran off "I got a dual rapier". So we had the whole place to ourselves, we killed everything in sight and waited, after killing the Broo for fun we were making our way back over to the west side to check for Emerald spawns, to our surprise there was Ga'Bhu standing there, unclaimed he had once again spawned inside the "circle he does not spawn in, but near" 2 hr's from when he died, on the dot. I was ready for a hard battle, I had already prebuffed, and pulled him to us with a Silence, which did stick. What a pushover! I dont know how a lvl 75 could be getting whooped by such a wimpy NM. We continued to kill him finishing him off with a Penta Thrust for 504 damage, when the screen flashed: You find a Valkyrie's Mask on Ga'Bhu Unvanquished. Hurrah! I cast lots and obtain the mask, using the funds to buy my LS member the coveted Walkure Mask, I was talking to my dad about our luck when he decides he needs one for himself(yes, my dad does play FFXI) so off we go back to Beadeaux, we arrive at the spawn point(yes, inside the circle) not 2, but 1 hour to the T later, and guess who we see? Ga'Bhu standing there, but alas he was already claimed, we thought something was going on when we didnt see any Emeralds in the area, Poo. We decided we could camp him one more time, and so we started to clear links again, My dad being a 75WHM/THF(for TH) 2 hours later to the T, we see a NIN in the area, near the east side, my dad decides he will camp near him so he walks towards the NIN when low and behold who should pop inside the circle he doesnt spawn in but near? Ga'Bhu, my dad Flashes him and gets the claim before the NIN can bat an eye. We kill him quickly, my dad using Club and Hexa Strike. But alas, the victory was bitter sweet, A daul rapier dropped and that was that, maybe tomorrow.

So in that fact I submit to you that A) He does pop IN and around the area marked clearly on the map. B) He is not a hard kill and C) His spawn is more like 1-3 HR's not 2-4.

Some food for thought however, I believe the spawntime can be quickened if you kill not just the two Emerald Quadavs, but all the Quadav in the Area, Meaning all the Spinal, Iron, Emerald and Elders, There is about 4 Emerald's in the near area, we made it a habit to keep them clear(me and the DRG) this practice was voided when it was me and my dad however, and the pop was 2hrs instead of 1hr. I also noticed that the sun in the area became very bright before he popped, these are just observations though, not that they influence anything.

I saw a lvl 73 PLD getting whooped by this guy. maybe he was low on HP to begin with, I'm not sure. But I do know I was there getting the blood for my AF helm with 3 others and we were standing around watching and waiting for him to die. The PLD was losing about 5% every few seconds and it looked like he was going to die. We were waiting for him to so we could jump in and kill this mob but the PLD's BLM friend came in just in time for a cure or two and they killed him. Funny thing is after that fight we formed an alliance and they got the blood for me. lol. I felt a little bad about wishing he would die after they got the item.

his spawn isnt 1hour too 1 1/2 it's longer. 2-4 hours is what i'v noticed. And also, were it's circled on the map were he spawns... i'v never seen him spawn there. heh, close, but never there. think the sword is 100% drop aswell, tobad it only goes for 6-7k.

Ok. first things first. His spawn area has been changed, but only slightly. He still only spawns in J6-J7 but it can be ANYWHERE in that area (dont use the little circle on the map as a guide)

His place-holders are 2 Emerald Quadavs(RDM). One spawns at the west side of J6-J7 and the other at the east (sometimes just outside the boundries of J6-J7). Additionally within this area will spwawn 3 sets of monsters, made up of an Iron(PLD), Elder(WAR) and Spinel(Blm) in each set. If you do want to clear the area try and kill the monsters as soon as they spawn. The Emerald and Iron Quadavs have the habbit of going around and casting protect3 and shell and themselves and their fellow davs.

I have not timed it exactely but he seems to spawn within about 1 - 1.5 hrs if the placeholders are always killed.

What level is he? I'd tend to agree with him being lvl 48. He's essentially not that different from the lvl48 emeralds except for having heaps more hp and attack strength. Haste (lvl 48 for rdm) is the highest spell I have seen him cast.

As to the question "Can I take him at my level?", I can only relay my own experiences as a 61 rdm/whm. First thing. I can sometimes be the only one camping him, this means that I am never able to completely clear the area all the time and the possability of links exists (everything is boderline ep-tw to me). I try to avoid links as much as possible but if need be I have the mp to fight him and keep a couple of links asleep at the same time.

My agility is 48+14 and i have close to capped Eva. These helps alot plus blind helps him to miss even more. A combination of Protect3 + Phalanx + Bio2 means that he hits me for 10-30 with crits at 70-80. My own attack power is pretty weak and i dont cast dmg spells on him either so its generally a kinda slow fight. I just make sure that bio2, silence and blind are always on him and phalax in always on me and he's and easy kill. As a rdm/whm I have divine-seal + cure 4 for a good 700+ hp restore if he manages a few too many crits and convert if i'm really unlucky with add-ons.

I summary. I'd say that most lvl 60 jobs should take him alone with the right spells or medcines, however being able too keep him silenced in very usefull. if you get add-ons then the fight becomes significantly harder and unless you have the ability to sleeps the links or the def/hp to take their hits you might not make it.

On a final note, 2 having 2 ppl will greatly increase your chances of beating any competition as you can each cover one of the emerald's spwans points and hopefully snag Ga'Bhu when he pops. Pretty much evertime i have been beaten is when i'm killing the emerald on one side and he pops on the other while i'm busy. Oh, and Broo's agro to resting.

My record: 0/3 (3 duel rapiers to show for my effort)

Well I guess there arent many people camping this guy on Ifrit server. I was helping a friend with the magicite mission and I was standing around this guy for a good 10 minutes and no one ever claimed him. I told my 62WHM buddy, "Do you think we can take him?", my buddy says probably but lets just get this magicite mission done for our LS member. I finished the magicite mission and passed by here again just to check him out and what do you know he still wasnt claimed, guess all the campers fell asleep. So those of you who think you will never get the chance to get him think again some times there are no campers at all on NM's or they spawn early so just keep at it.

im very sure a LV 60+ whm could take this mob, along he has a provided upto date weapon and.. some decent armor, i think i can take it, if not, ill come back with Reraise II and try to rape it if it has lil HP left ^-^
but provided you have some things like LV 60 staff, if your a staff whm, this thing should be cake walk, LV 60 staff, 2 sniper rings, and lots of def/mp items to keep you alive, because i kinda missed him a few times when i was LV 59 and 70 PLD, hehe i think he had the hate, when he hit for x2 the DMG i did ^-^

uhhh. since when is this ANYWHERE near magicite stuff? your way off bro. the mob you prolly saw was either Quadav Charm nm orAugery Shell... why would you be near coffer mobs doing magicite >.>
