Soloed easily as 75 DRG/BLU. With cocoon up EES only took off like 450, regular attacks were like 65-100, very easy to deal with. I took him out with a respawn pounding on me at the same time. Got teh drop 1/1 took about 3 hours for him to spawn after I arrived and started some mass gob genocide.

Solo as nin/whm + NPC

I just soloed this NM as nin/whm (with my NPC giving me extra cures). Pretty easy overall. I think I had killed it twice before, each time when I randomly passed by and saw the NM up. I dropped the bow and that will definately give me incentive to lvl my rng (currently 55).

NPC rocks at higher level. Mine gives me around 5 cure V when fully rested.

Good luck to all

Logged on Sunday after Maintenance and was killing PH's for roughly 1hr 45 mins and then Wyvernpoacher pops. I was PLD/RDM and an LS mate of mine just happend to be in the zone checking on Bune so he decided to join me as NIN/WAR.... the fight was a joke, his EES hit me for 88 with all my buffs + sentinel up. Killed him in about 5 mins and he drops EVERYTHING! So i'm finally done with Gustav Tunnel /hurray... all together i'm 1/3 on this guy, now I can get back to xping RNG.

Went with a friend last night for his dagger WSNM. Party was WAR/NIN,PLD/NIN,THF/NIN,RDM/NIN,RNG/NIN. I was a bit behind the others, they were in the tunnel, all of a sudden the THF shouts "Wyvernpoacher Drachlox sighted!" So we all run to the spot, big pile of goblins and right in the middle is the man himself. THF pulls the lot, PLD flashes Wyvernpoacher. THF zoned the links then came back as the goblin hit the deck, dropped everything including the bow (love THF). Then we went and got my friends WSNM beaten too, not a bad night!

My story:

75 WHM Tianjinn (me)
70 WHM Lutrina
75 RDM Rizzen
75 THF Jraja

Another LS WHM needed a testimony for Maat, so we head to Gustav Tunnel to robber crab/goblin camp. I passed Jraja along the way, he was camping Heronox for a friend of his and went afk. Rizzen was arriving late so just Lutrina and myself. We start clearing out the crabs so we can do clean pulls, 2 WHMs versus goblins is good but tanking aint a WHM's forte. We didnt have any problems or issues cuz we could do the standard 4-5 mobs rest routine. We start pulling gobbie, sure enough 1st one says enough of this and Bomb-Tosses himself to the next world. One thing doing Goblins, the sound effects change when they self-detonate the bombs. I now listen for that when I see the bomb toss to either run or stay. Anyways, Rizzen arrives and we kill a few more goblins before we can do the Alchemists who drop the testimony. So, we pull the 1st Alchemist no drop. Shepard in my way so we take him out. POP, Wyvernpoacher appears. I instantly ask the LS anyone need an O-bow? No answer, btw we have like 2 WHM standing by to tele people around for such matters even though we are a social LS, go figure. So, hell I want it, call for assistance, only the other 71 WHM and 75 SMN are available :( they can tele themselves. I being impatient send a tell to Jraja, he was back and I ask him if he could help take down Wyvernpoacher.

Jraja>> Sup?
Tianjinn>> Wvyernpoacher is up, can you help us kill him?
Jraja>> NM? up ok...
Tianjinn>> sweet
*invite Jraja*

Tarutaru THF are funny when they run. So we pull another punk goblin that decided to get my way of my O-bow, he goes down fast. WHM and SMN riding hard to get to the Tunnel from Crag. I had to go around the corner and pull him myself since Wvyernpoacher decide to take walk. Mind you, I am an impatient WHM when NMs are up and I want their heads for revenge and their treasure. 5 minutes later 1 dead Wyvernpoacher and 1 happy WHM. O-bow dropped and gold coin plus other junk. I lotted on my O-bow "8" yes a damn "8". Fortunately, my party was nice to pass but I got the O-bow. Now to level up RNG 23 atm. Yes, I know a lot of you are pissed at my lucky WHM but :P I helped a lot people out and nice to see a reward like this even though I can't use it yet. We pulled the next Alchemist that popped, Testimony drops. At this moment, I dont know if my luck or having my Leprechaun Tarutaru Jraja TH ability but its a game and I am happy.

2/5 Wyvernpoacher (1st time a RNG got the drop, now I own one hehe)
4/9 Leaping Lizzie (I was 1/2 before the patch to make them B-Boots)
1/2 Argus (1st kill the amulet drops, second no drop - farming with friend)

Weird thing, I get these drops as WHM/BLM or WHM/BST and I carry a 4-leaf. Got my rarab tail a month ago, so hopefully my WHM luck carries for other future items I desire.

I got mine today.

I was 1 of 4 on drops. Super easy solo for bst thanks to anti-mpk update:

-Grab a crappy pet ep or dc snip
-Put pet on him, let pet get hate (he'll have adds by then)
-Run to the tunnel by the lower level skeles.
-Heel pet
-When it gets to camp with the train, Leave pet
-Call CC put it on him
-Cast SS and blink (you don't want to eat a EES)
-When CC is almost dead sneak up, go in skele room charm target a ep/dc snip (not in aggro range of anything else)
-After that pet is dead if call bst is up put CC on him, if not charm another pet.

Each time it took me 2 CCs and 2-3 ep/dc pet snips.

*edit* Use Zeta's when timer is up

Here is my story on this bow. Joined an XP party levels 58-60, we went to Bibiki Bay and got completley owned. After raise we decided to go to Gustav tunnel and level on some gobs and crabs. We get there and xp is decent. After about an hour, this NM gob spawns. I immedietly ask pt if we can take, one person looks up and says we will get our faces torn off. So i stay away. Untill someone asks what it drops, and all i see(and am focused on) becomes obow. I'm freakin out now bc a bst that was soloing called her LS. The whm asks if i need it in /tell, and i say heck yea.(58rng btw) so he runs and gets his 75smn, on his way back, the Bst's ls arrives. So the pt tells me to claim. I shadowbind it and step out of range. The blm casts ES and Sleep 2, it doesnt work. So it gets unbound, we run around like chickens with our heads cut off. Finally the smn gets there, and we start attacking it. After a couple imfamous bomb tosses, the smn falls, as well as other pt members. The gob looses hate, and the others claim it. They get drop and i ask if i can have, but they charge me. i talked them down from 500 to 450k. Figured it was a good deal, but im not entirely sure. From previous posts it seems like it was. Feedback if you will^^

Good luck to all

I'm a 68 Mithra ranger at Caitsith Server and how I got this crossbow was a mixture of luck, patience, communication between various exp parties/HNM ls, and tons of shiheis, sleeping and bloody bolts. I'd like to thank the following for the 17 hours of HELL spent camping this NM (with 40% waning moon and going down):

Rikuide: 75 WAR/NIN (my boyfriend <3)
Danika: 75 WAR/NIN (my AWESOME FRIEND!!! <3)
Laharlofdemons: 75 THF/NIN (Danika's AWESOME FRIEND!!! <3)

And I'm also thanking the following:

Winrich: 50s BST for helping with an approximate ToD and providing helping Rik with Widescan on times I got d/c.

Abalon: 50s WAR for offering his help.

Thank you all for the help, especially you, Danika and Laharl!!! I didn't expect you two to help me without my asking. ^^; Thank you and I am forever grateful for all the help~!!! /kneel

I use mercanaries targe when i sub war for a little extra hp. Also, since i've lvled pld, my shield skill is capped and it blocks 20-30 damage fairly often.

That may be one of the lvl 30 shields. I have a 'Pilferers Aspis' for when I sub THF, usually when farming or hunting. It's handy and the extra def never goes astray, it is, after all an empty slot unless you are subbing NIN.

I looked at the net to see the drop then we decide to fight it, after half mob Hp down, he kill the NIN tank then critical me for 249 following by a 906 Eagle Eyes Shot guess what !!... I died.. then the party escaped.... While death a see a BLM party pass by me then see them overkill the Mob. As soon as he died they raised2 me then i received in /tell
***** >> Do you need the Bow ?

So that`s how i got it ^^

1/1/1 ( 1 death/ 1 kill/ 1 drop ) :P

Today i made my 3rd attempt at camping this coveted bow and there were no rng's or high end people at the camp spot, i at this point had camped it for a total of 15 hours. There was an xp party there and i asked its leader Darkdoom if they were there for the xbow, he said no so i asked to help me if it should pop. he agreed. i then waited with sopha a 75 pld, and a sam friend of hers @ 65, i was a 70 RNG at this point. after a3 hour wait it poped while we fought a regular mob. i pulled it think ing the other mob was near death and we could handle it. the pld got aggro from both and with nearly full mp died from interuptions, the sam next me last... we got raised by a testement pt on the other side of the pop area, we waited for weak to drop and i see like 10 people including xylo and spencer ( from my other ls not less). i tred to pull again and realized darkdoom had dia'd it and so was happy. i asked for an invite and he said nothing but noticed the people that had not waited at all could hit it. i sreamed wtf and such and they killed it. no drop but for the record may the names ZYLO,AND DARKDOOM from the garuda server be names of whom we all now know are the lowest for of scum in FFXi!

the worst kind of people

If you see any of the mentioned "Bad" people please "Skillup aoe mobs" near them. thank you.

I can understand you being angry at Darkdoom, and I also can't... What's the difference between you losing this to another camper that watched you die on it?
And it's not like it's an instant drop into ones inventory <,<; he could have invited you into group afterward.

Prehaps what you should have done if you had wanted his help was to invite his party into an alliance once you pulled it. Or, you could have just used your Rangerability Shadowbind to hold the mob in place while you finished the other one... That's what I use all the time to pull NM, as I don't have provoke.

I'm a 75rng and I still don't have this damne thing. Popped agter 2 hours of waiting once I logged on, was unopposed and just my luck my thf friend d/c'd just before he popped. I did it with a couple LS mates that are trying to help me because I am refusing to leave here for sky, dynamis, or anything until I get this crossbow <_<. I'm currently 0/1 on this and hoping the repop time is short because I already hate him after camping 8 hours yesterday and no pop. He went down especially fast with a 75mnk and 59whm helping me. It was maybe a 1 minute fight if you neglect the time I shadowbinded to wait for thf. Been an hour since he popped and he still isn't back so it didn't really matter. finished it with sidewinder and got jack. I have e-bow but I really want this bow because if it can do enough damage I'm dropping the e-bow in the AH and buying myself some dusk trousers and a wyvern helm. If you have any info on this cursed NM be sure to tell me. (75rng/37nin), siren sever

from what I've been told, killing a mob with a ranged attack or a spell decreases the drop rates on certain items. I think killing it with a sidewinder may be hurting you actually.
#Lobivopis, Posted: Oct 28 2005 at 7:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) All I can say is.. meh. The entire point of an xbow is that it has low delay. This thing does less damage per shot than an Ebow and has only slightly less delay so what's the freakin point?

the point of an Obow is that it can use status bolts and still so WS dmg thats comparable to other ranged weapons. the use of acid bolts throws the DoT of Obow up to the same ammounts of dmg bows or guns put out at lv75, plus lets other Dd in your pt deal more dmg at the same time. if you dont see how useful the obow is to a high lvl rng, then you either havent leveled rng or are an idiot.

and Ebow pretty much sucks at 75, its damage is around the same as a shingetto bow, which costs maybe 100k or so. the point of Ebow is to use it from lv55-67 because no other bow can compare to it at lv55, at lv75 the only reason to have it instead of a shingetto, gendawa, hellfire or Obow is as a symbol or your wealth, same as having a kraken club that you will never use in a pt ever.

Um... No. Hop over to KI forums and tell one of the rng's there that this bow is nothing but a status symbol. Should be pretty interesting for you.

The reason Ebow is so amazing is there is no cap for str. Low delay, High damage, No str cap. Get to use PPA with it. Rng's aren't putting out 3100 slugshots with Obow in lufaise. It outparses any ranged weapon in the game, hands down. It doesn't cost 12-18m on Kujata for nothing.

I'll take a Machine Crossbow over this thing. I'll destroy an e-bow in DoT with that. (of course I'll also spend a ton of money keeping it fed but if you can't afford to be a RNG don't be a RNG)

Am currently a 68thf/nin Taru, was helping a LS buddy get his whm testimony. Party of 3: me, Rdm70/blm, and Drk70/xx. A 75 Rdm/nin was soloing crabs next to us. Our Rdm yells "NM up"
and we invite the Rdm/nin to join us. The other 2 in our party decided to try for the drop for me (my rng is currently in mid-40s). No SCs worked out, we just started hacking and nuking. Drk and I both died during battle at the very end, got R1 from the two Rdms in time to go for the lot. Entire fight was only a couple of minutes at most. The rdm/nin decides he would rather have the gold beastcoin that dropped. I lot a 896 (could have been a lot 000!) and bingo, proud owner of an O-bow. Gonna be nice since I am going to level rng after Maat goes down....

Finally got mine after being f***ed up by a 0/6 drop rate ^^

Started camping at 10pm and we cleared all gobs we see, right after having our Ungur stolen -.-. It finally appearred at 1:40am, had 3 thf + 2 /thf. Don't know if it had anything to do with th or something, but we dropped everything that could be dropped of it, including "my precioussss" o.bow :)

Just for information, last death was 6.40pm so i have no idea of repop time or anything, but this info could be usefull to some of you ^^

==> I'm happy ^^

You got flamed because you're wrong. If you don't know something, you should RESEARCH it before you make a statement and call it fact.

TH DOES affect Rare/Ex stuff according SE.

Wow, are you ever wrong. Why does anyone think this moronic thing? there is no place to look it up, and if there was it would say it doesnt work. Its actually stupid to even think it wouldn't work for rare/ex drops. Why? What would be the point of TH? Don't spread anything this stupid and foolish and u wont be rated down by people like me who know u are worng.

Well I was camping VE and I got a tell saying,"Obow {do you need it?}, come to Gustav Tunnel". So I went running like mad hoping that it wasn't a prank. And then I got there I got invited to a party of lv 75's and they let me lot. I just want to thank these fine individuals for showing that there's still good people in Vanadiel.

Now I have to get 12 more levels before I can use it ><

This gobbie really isnt that hard to get it to drop...i beat it 3 times, once in an exp pt of Lv.58's, again with a friend who needed it, and duo'ed it with my 65rng and my 65rng friend. I'v gotten drop 2/3, i have my bow, and so does my pal now. Rng's can duo this if u pull it above the 1st camp. line up at each end of the hallway and bounce it back and forth, he never moves really so just get it stuck in the middle and unload like hell!

Thf Treasure Hunter Ability doesn't help w/ Rare/Ex drops


I had a Thief help me get a Beadeaux key.

They had Thief's Knife + Assassin's Armlets.

They dropped 8 keys in 12 mobs. Then proceeded to kill 2 NMs on the walk home, getting drops for both. (Walkure Mask and Shaman's Belt. Oh yay...Shaman's belt. o_O)

Not saying you're wrong, but I've seen otherwise.

And I have seen 3 keys in a row drop in Beadeaux. You can already guess I had no THF in the party. In fact, we checked while laughing. There wasn't a THF in the entire zone. Not even a THF sub with magical bleedover powers in Jugner Forrest.

THF/*** and ***/THF = X yet 3 coffer keys in a row. Magic! Just sayin!

Actually this is *partly* true. Certain levels of TH do not help with Rare/Ex or Hard-to-drop items. TH1, for instance, only increases drop rate on normal items by increasing overall drop rate. Its effect on Rare/Ex or Rare/Hard-to-drop items is utterly minimal.

Now.. for this THF...

He had TH4 (TH1 @ 15, TH2 @ 45, TH3 with Knife, TH4 with Armlets).

If that does not help with Rare/Ex drops, I will eat filthy shorts I've worn for a week without showering!

Oh, another note (both of these coming from a retired THF friend): TH1 does NOT stack. That's because it's a basic ability, and no base ability stacks with others in PT. TH4 would stack, I assume, by my friend's logic.

Got this bow today with HUGE help from my LS: Guts. This was my first time camping it and we were able to get the drop on the first kill (which popped not long after we arrived).

We had 2 THFs 45+ so I don't know if that played any role in the drop.

About 3am EST for no reason at all I decide I wanna camp for this bow. I do a /sea gustav and see there are only 3 high level people in there and I figured them to be camping Wyvernpoacher. At 4am I did /sea again and saw 0 people were inside gustav, so I send a tell to the RNG there asking if he'd give me a ToD. He said it died about 3:30ish, I thanked him and began to look for help. I did some shouting seeing if anyone wanted to skill a little or needed some testimonies cause I didn't have any other way to get help since no high level friends in LS.

Someone sent me a tell saying he would come but he needs it too and we'd both lot if it dropped, he has a 66RNG and also 72BST so the 2 of us wouldn't have much of a problem. I got a WHM friend of mine to come along to help with some cures.

So we get there about 5:30am, start killing placeholders hoping we'll get an early pop...I've killed this NM twice while XP'ing there and have seen it spawn in as little as 2 hours from its last death, 2-8hrs is what I've been told...I'd guess thats correct. Anyway, this 75 PLD and a 70 WHM show up cause the WHM needed a testimony, we fell into one party and were killing placeholders trying to get testimony as well.

Eventually we get it and the WHMs goes, the PLD stayed for another 20 min or so then said he had to go to help a LS member out...well he disbands and stands there for awhile, next thing I know I see this 68 RNG show up and apparently he's now helping him. I was kinda pissed, I mean I told this PLD its time of death and that it was gonna pop soon, and then he starts to camp it against me...not very nice I'd say.

Anyway, it was just the 68 RNG and the 75 PLD and they weren't even helping kill placeholders. They were just sitting there waiting for pop and probably hoping to steal it when it was low on health since with the BST in my pt there was a good chance of losing claim. Needless to say I was furious at what was going on here. There was another PT that was nice enough to going to alliance with us so we could make use of their THF's TH2, they didn't even want to lot on bow if it dropped cause had no RNGs in pt.

The RNG and PLD were having so much trouble even killing the crabs there if they got aggro I can't begin to fathom how they thought they were going to kill the NM. The PLD's health got down to as little as 1/5th ish, had Wyvernpoacher used Eagle Eye Shot on him he'd be a very dead PLD. I tried to be nice and offer them to join us, I was afraid they were gonna steal claim if we got it first anyway so I figure if were all together I still have a better chance to get it. I sent alliance offer and they don't say or do anything till the offer wears out, then he says Oh I was AFK, and sends alliance offer of his own. I told him our WHM was AFK which she was so disband and join into one PT, he told us to do it when WHM came back...all 3 in my pt agreed this was very suspicious and we feared he wanted to quartermaster the bow, and we didn't really need them anyway but they needed us...so I decide screw them and ignore them.

Eventually Wyvernpoacher pops, I use Shadowbind to quickly claim it, we were in the middle of killing a Mercenary and it popped and we kept losing claim, but the RNG & PLD were dealing with a crab so they couldn't do anything about it anyway. My heart is beating a million times a second worrying its gonna get stolen from us. It wasn't attacking me, just using Ranged Atks, so with being hasted I was able to keep shadows up a bit and hold it off until the BST finished off the other Mercenary.

It was almost dead so I go to alliance with the PT as we had agreed, I made the deadliest of mistakes here and here is where the drama begins. I accidentally alliance with the RNG who was there with his PLD, immediately I realize the huge mistake I made, but Wyvernpoacher was so close to death that I didn't want to dissolve alliance and risk losing drops.

It dies, Othinus' Bow drops...the 2 in the other party are /cheer'ing while the BST in my pt and WHM are sending me tells like WTF is going on!? Why are they in the PT. The RNG in the other party lots a 977 on the bow, I lot a 410 something and the BST who also needed bow for his RNG lot 170 something. My WHM friend did not lot or pass. My party members were furious he was going to get this bow that he did not earn or deserve. The BST who needed also along with the WHM told me to quartermaster it to myself since I got the 2nd highest lot.

I know this seems dispicable to people. But let me say, I have played this game 2-3 years now, never have I done anything other players look down on, I'm always helping people. Now please, try and understand this from my situation. I'm there for almost 8 hours doing all the work clearing placeholders, this RNG & his PLD who couldn't have killed NM anyway do absolutely nothing. I saw Othinus' Bow as my last challenge, I had fransisca already, all AF, had Lightning & Fire Ring..Othinus' Bow was really the last Rare/Ex item I needed to get, had access to sky and rank 10, after it I could continue leveling.

I sat there looking at the treasure pool looking at Othinus' Bow...I was debating with myself, it was literally like when the good and evil side of you are trying to persuade you to do something. I just couldn't give it to him...I really couldn't I know quartermastering it is dispicable in itself, but I can deal with that for the reasoning I gave you, but just giving it away to that RNG who doesn't deserve it, I really couldn't do it.

So why am I admitting to this act? Well...I feel kind of bad about it, I've never done anything like this before, but he was never meant to lot on it, it just wasn't his! All the stories I've read here of people being 0/20ish just flashed in my mind and I saw the opportunity to get it here. Gah, I wish it didn't turn out like this...I don't like having people hate me >.<. It wasn't even greed why I did this, had the BST lotted higher than me I would have quartermastered to him, the RNG who lotted the 977 and didn't get it is still hanging around Gustav camping it, I don't even wanna see this dude but when he gets it and is not there I'm going to help the BST who got it for me get his...I feel like if I make sure he gets it that'll be my repentance.

I guess why I'm posting this to ask, if you were in this exact, what would you have done? Would you have let him have it just cause he lot higher? A higher lot to me doesn't mean anything if he didn't serve it. Am I really such a bastard for reasoning it like this? I don't know why this is bothering me so much, I feel bad but yet don't care and happy all at the same time. Gah!!!

lets face it you made a choice based on the situation at hand that is in contrast to how your ethics dictate. your story rings true and sounds like an understandable reason to make the choice. I would probably done exactly the same thing debated and decided as you did. stealing a kill or lying to get the drop is not ethical behavior - but that is not what happened if you need to use a band-aid for you conscience offer to help them at a later date but it was you kill and your fight don't feel to guilty.

Got called out to raise my LS mates party after they wiped to this guy. Their WHM didnt have RR up. So when I get out there to raise 2 the party their WHM decides to leave, so I jump in his spot. ~2 hours later this guy pops again and they are semi-afraid to take it. I'm like, well you all just wiped to it but we can give it another shot. This guy was a pushover this time, we were never in danger. Party makeup: NIN59,THF59,RNG60,BRD58,BLM59,WHM59(me). The bow dropped and we had one very happy RNG.

Wyvernpoacher Drachlox 1/1 =)

Pty setup was rdm whm blm rng thf (th2) and nin (me) lvl 58-59 party.

I tank this Biotch and he hit really fast give me hard time to keep shadow up so i keep defender up and try to recast utsumetsi as fast but i get ton of hit, range attack are fast O.o

After about 3 min, and few distortion, he EES on me and shadow absorb dmg (Ninja :D) then our rng barrage and Sidewinder and EES on him and he die (mage had about 100 mp left each).

So My friend being Bender 75 rdm very kick butt and Gul ^^ awesome ranger. I was monk, so finally getting down there it pops up. Gul pulls it and Bender places slow and other spells to slow it down as we pull it down the tunnel. I sat back and boosting. Ranger did long range attack as rdm took face to face to this badie. I sat back still boosting for chit blast. We were able to beat this guy and got Gul his bow.

It was awesome ^_^

Whm/NIN Miracle
# Apr 12 2005 at 11:02 AM Rating: Decent
6 posts
I just have to make this post because I was so excited about it when it happened. I am a 67/33 NIN and after making a resolution to camp this thing until I got it, I headed off to Gustav Tunnel. I bugged friends and all that and tried to entice them with the opportunity to skill up things that they needed. The first night their were two other parties there, and we did not get the claim. So... I logged out and went to sleep and school and all of that. The next day I logged back in, by myself of course, and a group kills him not getting the drop. It was about 11:10 in the morning. So then the recruiting begins and I get a ton of my linkshell buddies and other friends out there and we camp and camp and camp, killing goblins/crabs the whole time. about 6:00pm he FINALLY pops and we kill him very quickly(there were about 9 of us, most 67+). No drop. ;.;

So since this NM is a straight lottery the majority of them stayed for a while longer, but eventually, all of them leave but me (67 RNG), a 71 THF/NIN(doing her weaponskill quest), and a 67 WHM/NIN dual weilding clubs trying to get hexa-strike >< sooo.. after another 4 hours of killing goblins, the thing pops. I'm shouting all over the place for my linkshell friends to get on their horses and get here to help. Some people say they will come, and are on their way. Meanwhile som random group of high levels shows up. and I see on the text box:
"<name> starts casting Frost on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox."
Immediately following ,I was in a panic, there was on the text:
"Kirrin uses Shadowbind on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox."

So.. we got the claim, but because of my <Slowga> members that said they would come, it's still just the 3 of us. So since he's a RNG type mob he just sits there while the thf and I trade off hate and alternate utsusemi, until he's @ 50% health. (RNG mobs are dumb like that, they shoot at you until they're at 50% health.) The thf and I keep working the shadows and then.. EES Comes out ;.;
"1 of Dhaman's shadows absorbs the damage and disappears."
/cheer ^^
We continue to whittle down at him...then at about 25% I just unload with Barrage and EES and a few shots later he dies:

Kirrinn defeats Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.
Kirrinn gains 10 experience points.
You find a Goblin Helm on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.
You find a suit of Goblin Armor on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.
You find a gold beastcoin on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.
You find an Othinus' Bow on Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.

/cheer ^^;

I don't know what I lotted, because I was so excited. The other two passed of course, and my 2 days of camping about a total of 21 hours was rewarded. =D 1/2 /cheer

I don't recommend this setup for anyone, but one thing it proves is that Utsusemi absorbs EES and that this Goblin is not as bad as everyone says he is, if you're smart. Keep him at range and you will be fine for half of the battle. ^^

<Thank you!> <See you again!>

I just wanted to add for everyone out there that I'm really tired of all the miracle I camped him for 30mins and he popped stories. I hope you that are still looking for this bow don't see my story as one of those. Sure I was 1/2, but I went through a lot to get that god-forsaken crossbow. I sat there in that place basically all the time for my 2 days that I was able to be on. This is a story to give hope to those of you who work hard and camp things forever to get your good equip. You can camp him and you CAN get the drop.

And to all you people that see Leaping Lizzy spawn as you run by and claim/kill her and get the drop:


You suck! ><

Yes I say that only because I'm jealous, but you still suck!

Ok, heres my story. I'm a level 67 elvaan ranger from the server unicorn. I've been level 67 since one month ago cuz' i decided not to level my ranger untill i get my hands on this crossbow.

Up to today, ive camped this NM for about 93 hours, killed it 2 times with one drop, which was stolen from me from a THF who helped kill it because he said "hey, why is he the only one who can lot? My ranger is 32, he's gonna need it soon"

Ive seen it, and claim it plenty of times, but since people are usually not willing to help I always die right after the claim.

I've actually quit ranger because of this NM, I'm really frustrated. I keep hearing peoples post that say "Oh, i only camped it 30 mins, and it pop! no one was camping and friends came over and helped me kill it. I GOT THE DROP!!!"

well, i want u to know how incredibly lucky you are. I've also lost about 20k experience camping this thing. IT has been a total waste of my time.

Well, nothing more to add.

Yeh, I've given up on this NM too, last night there were 4 god-damn groups there. Two of my group, Inc me, were one side and the other 4 were on the other side. He popped right infront of the 4 but they weren't paying attention. I had enough time to run halfway across the tunnel before someone else claimed it so I was very pissed off. As I like RNG, I just decided to use guns, it may be more expensive, but i'm not gonna quit it because I like the job.

I killed this guy in an xp party the other day. It was nin/war rng/nin rng/nin thf/nin brd/whm blm/whm. Both me and the other ranger died on him but we got the drop. We got raised and cast lots. The ninja who was jp lotted too a 63 lol. I lotted an 835 or something like that and the other ranger (part of rng static) lotted a 600. Everyone else passed. The other ranger recieved the bow WTF. I check my inventory 8 open spots. Rng friend asks me if I let him have the bow by passing which I did not. Everyone in the party was like wth just happened. I am was so pissed off because I never win lots espeically on something that I will really need. Now I will have to go camp this thing again sometime. Man that suxed. /cry

I've been after this guy since my Rng was lvl 67 and the night after I hit lvl 75, I was debating on what to do... merit points?.. camp Obow? (which i've had the worst possible luck on... seriously).

Static parter was gonna camp with me but I did a search in Gustav and saw there was were 2 Japanese camping him... a 75Mnk/Nin and a 75Blm/Whm. A friend of mine was there fighting Ungur and I asked her if he was up, she said that Mnk tried to solo earlier and died and they took the NM and got the drop.

I'm decide not to camp it because JP are bad at MPKing on our server, so i'm chatting with some friends... later my LS leader says Wyvernpoacher is up. I ask if anyone is there and they said no. A lvl 74Thf from my LS joins me and we haul ass there. We get half-way and a Smn whos exping there said that Mnk and Blm came back and claimed it. I was like -_-... but we still keep going... and he said "yeah... they're raping him." .. then he says "ooooo quick, they died" I'm like o_O... and bolt there. I tell the Thf to Flee and claim once he zones. The Whm in that exp party ignores my LS friend and raises the two JP members but before they were rested up, the Thf in my party claimed and I pulled it back. I take away well over half its HP before I finally bite the dust because that MOFO is hard on shadows o_o ... the Thf is fighting... about to die then some Whm runs by and starts giving him Cure IVs and saves him. He fires of Dancing Edge and a couple more swings (at the same time the Whm raises me) and as I stand up, 2 more swings and he falls. Got my bow FINALLY and agreed to help him get Joyuese for his Pld. :D

We had level 57 party in Gustav fighting Gob Alchemist, shephards, and Mercs. Higher level party camping NM. Wyvernpoacher spawned, our tank/puller voked it. Oh crap.

We had Nin/war, Rng/nin, Rng/nin, Sam/rng, all 57, rdm/whm level 54, whm/blm lvl 55.

Whm died, was raised. Other rng besides me dies after getting 2 hr off. I (rng/nin) EES after other rng, am able to hang in until TP is +100, and luckily get off last Slug Shot to make kill.
No bow, just gob gear and gold beastcoin.

Needless to say, I was impressed. The rank 10 in our party had never seen a sub 60 party make kill.

48 drk/thf
