Well, I grabbed about 6 Darksteel Ores and a Fishing Rod and made my way down to Kuftal. I figured I'd try seeing if Phantom Worm was soloable as BLU75, and I knew already that I could kill the Devil Mantas. Anyway, on my way there, I see Yowie up, so I ask my LS if he's soloable, they say he's a little tough. So, I cast Ichi, Refueling, and Cannonball pull him down to the middle ramp. He was a little tough, but I managed to solo him down to 20% before shadows went down, and Ni wasn't up. Died shortly after, and Monkxiong+Tonitaru killed him the rest of the way. I would say he's definately soloable as BLU/NIN, I just didn't have Filamented Hold set, which would definately have given me an easy win.

(Also, Phantom Worm is soloable as BLU/NIN, if you play your cards right.)

Good job!! The other day, my partying was fighting around where he spawns and we decided to give him a go. Luckily we got him before the group of 75's got the claim. They were there fighting the Phantom worm and Devil Mantas. My party setup was Pld,War/nin,Rng,Whm(me),Rdm, and Blm. We ranged from 58-60. We got the Yowie skin... outlotted by 200. >.<

PT in Kuftal 2 nights ago



Was there for 4 hrs or so.. good exp good fun.

About 1 hour into the PT our NIN sees him so we pull him.. kill him no big deal 1 skin 2k and 210 exp.

30 mins later I see him in the same spot as last time, suprized he popped again so fast, same scenario except he dropped 2 skins this time, total of 3 so far.

1 hr 30 min later he pops AGAIN and we kill him again, 1 skin this time, I got 2 of the 4 not alot on this server but it suprized us he would pop 3 times in 2 hrs.

Right before we left(about 2 hrs later) he popped again but we didn't kill him because our nin was afk and I was tanking the last few mobs for the THFs level, a BST ended up killing him.

Dynamis: Umai

Is it safe to presume this is a 1-3 Hour pop ? I would also have to presume there isnt a PH , just a lottery pop . If anyone has Info hook it up ^^v

My friend and I (68RDM and 75MNK) found this guy untouched the other day and we figured what the hell give it a shot. Very easy fight, started with a full set of debuffs then entered mele mode and cured the MNK when he needed it. Strange the gil-sellers had not snatched this up. Anyways dropped 1 skin(I hear it can drop several?) which sells for an impressive 600k on Fairy(land of evergrowing inflation).

I was in a party the other day with my 57RDM. We were exping there for a while, had gotten around 14k exp in 2.5 hours. Then Yowie popped. The party setup was this, 57RDM/BLM (me), 58NIN/WAR, 58RNG/NIN 57THF/NIN 58WHM/BLM, and a 58BLM/WHM. It took a while and was scary a few times, but all the mages mostly just healed and enfeeble so they would not draw hate. I had the convert and just asked for a Regen and Cure IIIed myself. It was probably close to the most fun I have had in the game to this point, such a rush. Anyhow, it dropped 1 skin, 1 fire crystal, and about 1600gil. Also, the THF mugged it for 1500gil. We lotted and I got the skin. Sold for 30k on Midgardsormr.

Too bad it looks like he's eating your head. This was just after the pull, wasn't it?

Took him on last night with a lv56-58 party consisting of: RNG RNG RNG PLD WHM RDM.

We killed him (Yowie Skin, 2000g and 202xp), but the WHM died, probably due to the Worm that got aggro and decided to start spamming Quake on us ><

Um... At level 1 you wouldn't even HAVE Sneak and Invisible to even CAST the spell, duh! So you can't say how long the spell would last - because it would NEVER happen. Sheesh.

As for powders and oils - they have the same lastability regardless of level. You can be 75 level or level 1 and it will still wear off when you're in the most compromising situation you can be in.

As a sidenote I do find it somewhat unlikely that even a newbie would explore this deeply into vanadiel just to pick a fight with an IT++ monster. Why this particular monster? Why not any other? And if sneak had ran out he'd have been attacked by Robber crabs and worms long before this raptor gets its meal.

No, you're wrong. Only the magic spell sneak/invis are based somewhat on level. Casting sneak/invis on a level 1 will only last 1-2 seconds, but using potions will work just fine.

I snuck around sea serpent grotto looking for my ninja scrolls as a level 1, using oils and powders.
