no good dead goes unrewarded

so i'm semi seriously camping VE and I notice LOST in now in from netflix.. so i think i can keep track of the 5 min PH pop.. well.. Before i knew it i widescanned and saw VE, but he was claimed.. BAH.. after maybe 15 minutes of camping

some noob asked for a raise, saw he was lvl20 WHM, no sub job.. i figured what the ****.. i'll help him get the magicked skull.. in gusgen mines.. he didn't have a dem crystal /sigh, so we went and got that (told him it would have been soo much easier if i could have just ported him) took him there, 5 ghouls later.. a skull. i port us out, (was BRD75/WHM37, for mazurka of course) and escort him to selbina, job change back to THF/RNG and Flee to the camp.

I scanned and.. there he was.. i start my little taru legs over there.. no flee (has just used it) there he was.. unclaimed.. got the drop

thanks SE! i hope some GM was watching over me and thought i deserved it ^.^

Logged yesterday morning around 8:00am cst, did a /sea valkurm from jeuno.. nobody around, got to the dunes, killed ph twice, emp pops, hairpin drops =D Oh, also, was playing later that night around 10:30pm and my brother decided he'd hunt him after my luck this morning. Only thing is he was on his 26 monk. Emp pops, he sends me a tell to get there (I'm in jeuno), so I'm on my way when he gets aggroed by emp! He fights him and pops hf but dies with emp at 1% when he nails him with cursed sphere. I get to valkurm, he's still unclaimed so I invite my brother to party (who's still laying near the emp), kill the emp, and get the drop for the second time that day! Beat that! :D

0/9 =[

Least I got LL the other night. The PH method works perfectly, as long as you don't have some idiots killing every fly in the zone. Or some bst that randomly decided "LOLCHARM" and turns the hour respawn into 6 hours (happened first 2 times -_-) Good luck all, unless you're on Ramuh, then boo on you

got my drop tonight as rdm42/rng, 1/5. So im camping VE for the 5th time, I wait three miserable hours because of some bst killing other flies besides PH, finall VE spawns, I haul ***, just to have my 3 hours of patience ruined by some POS thf who happened to be passing by. So I throw some angry emotes at him, and go back to waiting. It's 3AM and im tired, but I read that if only the PH is killed it can spawn in an hour, hour and a half max, so i'm like, why not, i'm the only one here(amazingly) Almost exactly an hour later, (3 mins. off) VE pops on widescan, I haul ***, take my sweet time killing it, and close my eyes before the final blow, waited for battle music to stop, and open my eyes to a brand new Empress hairpin! Goodluck to all who are still or are going to try for the drop.

I was passing through dunes and figured long as I was there might as well switch to /rng and camp for a bit. Not my first time camping him, but I've never caught him. I only waited about 20 minutes, with 2 other thf's there, one /rng, and one /war, when VE pops near me and the thf/war, and I lucked out and claimed him with steal.

Almost (if not exactly) 5 years to the day I started the game and I finally caught VE for the first time 5 minutes and got the drop!

Finally got this hairpin after about a straight month of camping this *******. It may be of note that I went 0/29 on WHM75/RNG1, then just for fun changed to BLU38/RNG1 and got the drop. One of the (very polite *gasp*) campers who saw me kill it said it was just luck that I got it on my lower level job, but idk......

Decided one night to camp the Valkurm Emperor, since I had about an hour left before I had to head to bed. Ran around for a bit a DRG/THF killing flies every now and then. Eventually I became friendly with another camped, and I told him about the PH method to help him out a bit, since I wasnt going crazy trying to get the hairpin. About 10 mins later, he got claim and drop, and I clapped and was happy he got it outta all the other campers.

So I logged on the next day, and decided I probally wasnt gonna hunt VE after all. I ended up killing a few flies anyway and eventually he popped. Killed hima nd got drop, so I'm 1/1. Only NM anything like that has ever happend to...except for when I was a noob and got leaping boots rsndomly and sold em.

If only I could get bounding boots now...I'm 0/8 in the last two days. Good luck hunting! And remember, good things happen to nice people =P

One thing the guide did not mention is the PHs might have a limited pop range, but VE can pop anywhere in the area.

Got my pin last night, 1/4 WOOT! By the way the PH method works FLAWLESSLY. Now just need my boots 0/6 on LL so far XD But did mangage to get 4 claims last night, AND in between claims on Lizzy, warped to valkrum, killed PH once and VE popped, claim, drop.

Wanted this for PUP since it's one of the few nice pieces of headgear we can actually equip for a long time, got three spawns in 4 hours, two within 30 minutes of each other. As PUP/RNG at 33, I was able to claim each spawn (around 9pm - 1am central) and soloed the first pop. For the second two, a couple of my friends were bored and helped me out and kept me energized with conversation. For any other PUPs in their 30s that don't really have any better jobs for this sort of thing, you can easily solo it at 32+ using Stormwaker, just bring some antidotes if you're all alone because it's poison can last awhile. Keep some maneuvers up for a fast DoT to claim with about 30 seconds before the next placeholder spawn/possible pop for fast claiming.

So I had a few hour spare last night and decided to go for this.

Started at 10, without widescan. Running about killing any damselfly I saw, never saw him spawn (nor did any of the other 2 campers I think). At 12 I decided I'd go get widescan and try to work out the placeholder since the other 2 campers had left.

Came back to Valkurm and was the only one left, tried the widescan placeholder thing but couldn't seem to get it to work.Was always comming up with groups of 5 or two groups of 4 damselflys, until I positioned myself inbetween the rocks in top right E-8, seemed to work there. 2 Place holder kills later, and he spawns :D

I was lucky that the party right next to him didn't notice he had spawned as I was at the other side of his spawn area (seems to be D-8 to F-9, F-9 is where it spawned for me while I was at E-8 killed the PH at E-9) got the claim and the pin :D

In total about 18hours (over a few weeks 2-4hours per sitting) and one claim, guess I'm just lucky. Had 3/3 on Bounding Boots :P Hoping for the same lucky with argus *keeps everything crossed*

edit: forgot to say I killed him as 66whm/1rng, easy kill.

Got mine a couple months ago for ma thf, was 45ish thf/rng 1 other camper. Killed a couple flies, skilled up marks (totally gimped) VE popped, hit flee macro, /ra got the claim, the other person camping probably wouldve got it if they also had flee.
But, 1/1, alot of other people ive talked to are also 1/1 on this, did they increase the rate? or just lucky?

Wish theyd do the same for LL, or i wish i had the same luck >.<

I got my Empress Hairpin as a 44 sam / 22 war. I'm 1/7 on this NM.

Didn't get any party invite so I went down the Dunes to check out to see if there were any campers for VE. I was lucky enought to see only one camper (appeared to be afk.)I stayed by the oasis/beach area and killed a few damesfly. Next thing later, it poped, killed it, and amazingly got the drop.

2 for 3 and the only reason for not getting the first one? I died.

and I know, here come the "WTF why would you try a second time, its EX"

I got it Tuesday after camping 2 hours. Thursday my friend was farming in the dunes, and I needed some lizard skins, figured I'd get carbuncles ruby as well. Told him to send me a party invite, in case I saw the VE, since he didnt have one yet. Killed the PH for fun, with 6 campers around. 5 minutes later, it pops. I run over, and some poor level 17 is dead from it, Kill it, drop.

Suck for the little guy. He sais he was 0/10 on it, and he was there to party, and got aggro'd. ;( /cry

Just started a new character so my old friend, THF75/RNG37 helped me camp Valkurm Emperor. There was like 6 people there camping it as well. Well, he did the PH thing for about 20~25 min. then VE popped. He used Flee and claimed him with a Ranged Attack. We killed it and it dropped the hairpin. I am now 1/1 on him^^ Also, my friend had TH3 which makes me think TH3 is uber since we camped Leaping Lizzy a week before and went 1/1 on him. On my previous char. I had gone 0/25 on LL and such so maybe TH3 is "that" good. Maybe not. Hope this helps.

Finally dropped after killing it 20+ times since the RARE/EX update. Camped as 53 BST with THF sub for Treasure Hunter and Flee. I recommend having a Widescan/Flee combo if you want to up your chances, since the area it pops in is so big.

Good luck!

i think for rare/ex items, the more times you kill the mob and not get drop the higher then drap rate should increase. there shoudlnt be any need to camp more than 3 times trying to get a rare ex items.

About a total of 2.5 hours of camping and I came out of it with the hairpin. It was funny because that was the first time I have even seen VE before so that makes it 1/1 for me. I was 50 THF/RNG at the time. Not that RNG helped as it popped right in front of me. I am just happy I saved myself 500-600k!

I am 1/43 on this sucker....and I only got it because a good friend of mine came as Thf75/Rng37 to help. I fell asleep after 6 hours of camping straight as Pld/Rng and he got drop an hour later.

If you dont have TH -and- WS, its gonna make for a very trying time in your game life.

camped for about 20 mins just now. 5-6 other people around camping. spawns near me, i get claim (tho, i thought i was too far when i casted dia, tho if i didnt, a thf prolly woulda gotten it, and if i was too far, he'd prolly have gotten it, so i tried anyway lol)

put some crappy equip on, and attacked, listening to someone beg me for it, purposely taking longer then i need to kill it (like 20 secs longer), because of that (lol). down to 10%, {Spirits Within} 300% tp, red health (convert ftw), owns it, and got the drop!

1/1 ~.^

You might be able to sell it to an NPC, but then your whole server will come mpk you.

1/1 on this thing, wasn't even camping it really. Was in Valkurm messing about with some LS members while some lower level ones EXPed, figured id stick around the pop area in case it popped. It did, I claimed, it dropped.

Probably wont even use it for a month or so when I level a melee for the first time :P

Got claim 3/3 drop 1/3 the placeholder trick works flawlessly, 2nd claim was against 15 campers at 6am so dont always expect off hours to be slow. Easy as a 46THF/23BST. Charm ftw. Goodluck my fellow campers.
Oh yeah!

This thing OMFG its soooooo annoying camped it from about 8:30 am GMT till 12:30 then it pops my heart is racing i run over flash>>>melee>>>vorpal blade>>>melee>>>melee at this point it dies from my great strength :P i wait a @#%^ing insect wing. i felt like smashing my TV and braking my xbox. now just trying again hoping for a quick pop

wide scan really helps im PLD/RNG 60/10 but levels dont matter. just keep watching between the snippers and leeches and it will pop, eventually.

i hope no one else has a 4 hour pop but if u do be patient and i hope u get the drop unlike me.

just going to take down another place holder ill update if i get the drop or not.^^

I'm so sick of camping this thing. It must just be a problem that only I have.

I've been there for about a week now, only got 6 claims, 0 drops. RMT LS on my server seem to know exactly when he's about to pop and know exactly WHERE he's going to pop, as they always come in on Chocobos and dismount. 2 minutes later they claim. So sick, soooooo sick.

Camping this NM has made me contemplate quitting so many times. I don't care about real people camping, it's the RMT that camp this **** that is making me so angry.

If anyone on Leviathan sees anyone with a "peerless" LS, make sure to report them, as they are RMT, and really ******* me off.

Why would RTM camp an item that can't be sold? it can't be about Pimp gear cause they wear the bare minimum of gear

Nice, just started camping VE with my 75 thf. Took 2 hours, but I claimed and got the drop first try (Thank you TH2). Finally I can sell my emperor's pin and have some money.
