My husband and I had been discussing unlocking our advanced jobs for a while - he was going to unlock DRK and I was going to do SMN. Well, we were being escorted through Qufim by some high level LS mates when we were relatively low level. One of the guys decided he would run ahead and murder some leeches for fun. First leech dropped it and my husband and I almost lost it. We were really excited and, since everyone else in the party had unlocked most of their advanced jobs, they let me lot for it. :3 When my husband played a few years ago, he said it took him over 3 days on his old account to get the ruby. I was just really lucky, it seems. Best of luck to all of those fighting the leeches to get it!

I was running about killing leacches on Qufim Island, right outside the tower to be exact, when I got my ruby. The irony is I got two in less than ten minutes, the first less than five minutes after mentioning something to a friend about it. All I can say is 'Good Luck' to those having issues getting it. Keep trying and hopefully you'll get it soon.

(Just for reference:)
I was a Red Mage level 38 with a Thief subjob, level 19. My friend was Red Mage level 68, don't ask his subjob though, I don't remember. >.>;

This is my second character so I knew what I was in for. I have been farming leeches for 4+ hours with a friend, and 9 stacks of bird blood (each) have piled up - but still no ruby. I'm a thief and the ruby is for a paladin friend of mine (he's even subbed thief). I know it drops in Buburimu Peninsula, I have even seen a 75 smn/whm get one in 1 kill, but no luck for me lol. I'll keep trying so my friend can get it, but I must say this drop is like papyrus +1 sometimes.

On a side note any leech can drop this and I have seen some rubys drop in some weird places.... Keep swingin' is my advice now I'm gonna log back in and take my advice and kill more leeches. Leech genocide!
So many leeches

I just spent 4 hours last night doing nothing but killing leeches. About half-way through killing leeches a 75 THF came to help me out, and it still took 2 more hours!!! I walked away with 8 stacks of bird blood, after killing at least 200 leeches.

Hmmm, just noticed I picked this little fella up from some Poison Leech in Rolanberry Fields earlier tonight. Had TH1 on, and I only killed a dozen of them, maybe a dozen and a half, max.

Shame is, I've already done the SMN quest. =/

I've been at this on and off for a total of about 4 hours. I've made 4 stacks of bird blood and a stack of water crystals (would get more if I could actually get signet). It's really ridiculous how bad the rate is. I really think SE should change it. It just makes the game less fun to have to farm for one thing.

Word to the wise, SE.
Also drops off of Labyrinth Leeches

Found 4 of these in the Korroloka Tunnel while doing the NIN quest.
And considering the low drop rate on these things, that's pretty darn good. Me and Vykos (friend) killed about 8-10 leeches, after that, we fought the three Korroloka Leeches. We got our stuff and he had to go, so he logged... I decided to not warp out at once, but stayed and killed a few, then I got it, of course i got happy since i've heard it would be hard to find these. I hadn't really started looking for these, but wanted to farm some Fiend Bloods, and there it was. So, I thought, "what the ****..." /hurray. And I continued to farm, I got 1 fiend blood and then i got another Carbuncle's Ruby, and then another one, and another one! I was like.. uh.. what is going on here? So, i killed a few more, but no more Ruby's.
I did get 2 more fiend blood to even it out to a stack of 12.
Sadly, I didn't have a map over the place, but where i found the four Rubys, you can also find the three Korroloka Leeches.. sort of... it is nearby.

I got mine at the Shakrami (sp?) Maze in less than an hours worth of fighting. I had to watch for aggro by not standing still too long waiting for the leeches I was fighting to respawn in one area but over all I had no problems what so ever there. Other locations were totally frustrating.

I think this is just an item with a sucky drop rate. Its drop rate might be as low as 1%, but it's hard to tell based on these posts alone. For all the annecdotal stories posted here saying "I got this on the 1st/2nd/3rd/whatever leech", there will be people on the other side of the probability curve who fail to get the drop after their hundredth leech. As far as I've seen, there's no definitive evidence that the drop rate is better/different in one area as opposed to another. My advice: get a job/friend with as high of TH as you can find, pick a spot where they're known to drop the ruby (i.e. Buburimu, Shakrami, etc), kill leeches like mad, and hope that you get lucky.

Was in maze of shakharmi camping Leachking and Argus mostly Argus but went back to area where leaches are there is a whole room of them threw a few ga spells Ruby dropped it took me a while to get this earlier seemed so easy there if not just cause there is a buttload of leeches in one spot. I'd suggest going here if you want Ruby.
I killed minus 14 of them and got 400 to drop!!

I wanted this item so I could become a SMN, and a WHM73/BLM36 volunteered to help me. I suggested that we go to Buburimu Peninsula or Bibiki Bay (two places I'd heard the most about in terms of frequent Carbuncle's Ruby drops) but he said he had a better place in mind. We went to Buburimu Peninsula, and then entered the Maze of Shakhrami through one of the back entrances. Anyways, he told me to wait there while he went and massacred leeches. Nine leeches later, we got the drop. ^_^

He said he'd never gotten it that fast before, and personally believed that the Maze of Shakhrami's leeches have a better drop rate than even the Poison Leeches of Buburimu. Whether or not that's factually correct, I suppose, is up for debate, but I thought I'd share anyways.

This was the most nauseating item to obtain. I think I may have just set the record on Asura for number of leeches killed before getting the drop. After killing 100 poison leeches I got disgusted and was ready to give up. I noticed there was a lvl 75NIN/37THF in the area and I was able to recruit his help. Well 153 more leeches later finally got the drop. Total leech kill count 253 before drop. *grrrrr* *grumble* *grumble*

I think I just set the record for number of poison leeches killed in order to get this to drop.... What a nauseating item this is to get. After killing about 100 poison leeches I got discouraged, and searched teh area to see if I could recruit the help of a thief. I found a thief and got him to come and assist in my leech killing advendture. This guy was a level 75NIN lvl 37/THF.
After another 153 kills finally got the drop.... Had to kill 253 leeches before I got the drop. grrrr.....

I was killing leeches as RDM/BLM in Qufim(for a long time...I think I lvled off the crappy xp it was taking too long)when it eventually got boring and I switched to RDM/NIN and killed leeches at Korroloko tunnel. I killed at least 17 before I got the drop. ****** me off that it took me so long when others get it the first drop, but I know it ****** people off about my NM drops so I have no room to speak...

So, last night...I was settling myself in for the LONG haul that awaited me. I've been reading forums like mad trying to decide where I would try first for the Ruby. I settled upon Buburimu Peninsula, since an IN GAME summoner I spoke with suggested that it had the best drop rate. My MAIN job at that this time is Thief. (THF being my only high job: 30).

Got a tele to Mea.
Grabbed a Chocobo and raced to the Buburimu Peninsula beach (the one nearest the Mhara entrance).

Checked out the Poison Leeches- Easy Prey.

I sneak attacked the little ****** and it becan to bite me back. OUCH! For EP's those guys can hurt.
Anyways...I was resting after that first fight and re-evaluating whether or not this was such a good idea afterall. If the down-time was THIS long for HP recovery...I was expecting to be here for DAYS instead of mere HOURS...

So, I thought..."****, I'm here already...might as well do something."

SA on the next Leech....fight...fight...ouch...fight....DROP!!!!

/shout HOLY MOLY!!! Carbuncle's Ruby just dropped on the SECOND Leech! WOOT!

Treasure Hunter or Pure Devil's-Luck helped me out here. So now...I'm off to experience one of each Weather-type, then that cute little Carby Poke'mon is all mine! :)

That's not fair. I didn't get my ruby at Qufim Island though I went to Korroloko and killed those leeches and Raised people that asked for it. I think it was like the 17th leech or something that dropped it for me...still isn't fair.

BTW...I got all the elements except fire in like an hour. Someone told me I got lucky that I got ice in Batilla Downs. I ran all over the world trying to get fire(heat, sun, whatever)and finally made my way to Eastern Altepa Desert and got it easy. Later on that day I went to Valkurm Dunes to help someone with subjob and it had fire weather >.<

I'm a 75 BLM so Magic Use comes normal, so going melee for about 250ish leeches in Buburimu Penn. was a time consuming and very painful experience. After a couple days of frustration I moved to Qufim and dropped 5 Blizzard IVs on 5 Acrophies and boom.. ruby!! So please tell me why melee and lower level magic seems to work better, cause it's not the same for all!

As with most Rare/Ex drops, in order to get this you must use Melee kills. Magic can be used to lower HP, but killing the mobs using magic significantly reduces the chances of Rare/Ex drops.

I killed like 30+ leeches in Buburimu Peninsula, some in Qufim Island, some in Valkurm Dunes, some in Jugner Forest and Zeruhn Mines (dont think it drops in this last 2 places?! but i tried) always without drop...

I really thought it was going to take me weeks to get it. And yesterday I didnt expect it before hours (or days?).

So, I went to Maze of Shakhrami and guess what? After the 4th leech, it dropped...like someone already wrote : Its funny when you desperately want something and it takes so long to get, while when you don't want anything it actually drops on you.

I was with my friend mnk63/war31 ans I was a monk too (lvl 30, no need to know my sub this wasn't thf)

lol, I can tell you what not to do. I was a BLM-47 at the time. I went do Burb. Pen. and killed over 150 using my -GA magic spells. Sometimes killing 5 at a time. DO NOT DO THIS. -GA spells, although fun to use on them will most likely not drop at all.

Later on when I was a BLM-50, I went with a THF-50 and we just meleed them. Got it within 10-15 kills.

Melee them, and try to take a THF with TH2 if at all possible.

I have tried for this stupid thing... more times than I'd like to admit.
I was actually leveling my Great Axe on Thunder eles, Skeles and Banshees in Quifim at the time.
I got bored, and knew I was done for the night, so I switched to my Warp Cudgel and fought a leech...
I was starting to nod off, and indecently had half health from fighting undead, so I used Blood Weapon on the leech for kicks...
And... I got the drop.
Maybe Blood Weapon is the x-factor in this. :P
Just kidding, but don't give up, it will drop sooner or later. Most likely when you least expect it too.

Me and a MNK were gonna kill leeches to find this for me we were planning to put a couple of hours into it. We go to Buburimu Peninsula and go to the leech spawn at the eastern most beach, kill a leech and get it on the first drop no TH2 or anything then me and the MNK are like "So what now we have hours to spare now." But don't get me started on the heatwave it took me a week almost to get that. It's funny how that happens. Usually people get the Ice color last but thats what i got first seeing as i had invisible, sneak, and deodorize to get to Beaucedine Glacier. So i got incredbly luck on the ruby drop but not so lucky on the heatwave which I finally got while leveling in the Elshimo region.

I know it can drop off any leech.....
however while i was with a friend in SSG trying to get the two NMs to pop, i was walking around hitting the Royal leeches left and right.
although my friend was collecting vials of blood, i was just collecting frogs from the shangans.
right off one of the leeches, a vial drops and a ruby drops.
i've completed smn quest already and my friend is a lvl 73 smn, so i let him keep it.
now... less than 20 minutes the next leeches pop.
"You find a Carbuncle Ruby" off the Royal Leeches.

Its funny when you desperately want something and it takes so long to get, while when you don't want anything it actually drops on you.

Funny how that works too....

On my main character, I spent 8 hours killing leeches in Buburimu before I got my Ruby...

And on my Tarutaru, I was whm/nin in Qufim skilling up clubs...and skilling up on an Acrophies, I got the drop without even trying for it.

Definitely a luck of the draw drop...prepare to be in for the long haul, but hope to get lucky ^^;

errrrm, I totally agree, I was looking for that ruby on and off for 5-6 months, only job I hadn't got, I was looking for mithra fangs in shakrami maze, and my friend who was also wanting the fangs for garrison, said why don't you kill a few leeches, on the 3rd leech killed it dropped.

not bad only 300,000 leeches roughly for the ruby to drop, lol, and I got the drop with my 62PLD, and never got it with my 46THF with treasure hunter 2.

isn't TH2 suppost to give you more drops, lol, obvoiusly not in this case

and most of my farming for the ruby was with my THF.
