# Dec 11 2007 at 3:44 PM Rating: Decent
Went out today to try and get this beatsmen blood and saw the NM on Leviathan. I was just on my way back from helpig someone finish the Magicite quest. first fight with TH1 (which i know wont help that much) got the drop. gave it to the new guy to either use or sell. easy fight. Beastmen Blood in INCREDIBLY slow!!!

Happy Hunting!!

- Trigger: Kill 99-100 Thread Leeches and he will pop.

Been figuring this out by farming here alone for a long time.

- How I figured it out: Kill one Thread Leech, it takes exactly 5 minutes for the Thread Leech to pop again start ing to count from 0 once the killing blow has been dealt. So, to reach 100 kills, and you kill all of the Thread Leeches in one go, either with Area of Effect spells, or with an Area of Effect Weapon Skill.
It would take 5x20 (""5" minutes "x" the times you have to kill to reach 100 = "20"")

5x20 = 100

So, 100 minutes minimum for Bloodpool Vorax to pop.

Damn, I have too much free time.

I was just passing through Pashow Marshlands and Bloodpool Vorax happened to be there. I soloed him no problem as a RDM 27/WAR 13, but all the leeches he linked killed me.

Oh, and no drop. :(
got it

camped this thing for 5 min soloed it as a 34 war and got drop

Yeah so i was farming some bloods and this little guy poped so i figure what the heck ill take it on it cant hurt. Me being a 41 Sam/War i throw up a meditate and a 3rd eye and charge right on in. It was a very easy fight and i got a Carbuncles ruby out of it which i was trying to get earlier that day so it made me pretty happy.

I'm there 3 hrs and the sucker never pops. Some jerk Blu gets there and gets pop and claim less than 5 min after arriving. Then says "haha i wasn't even camping it, just farming blood".

I hate this game sometime...
# Nov 24 2006 at 10:20 AM Rating: Decent
Ha! You are lucky he popped within 3 hrs! I was there 5-8hrs with only 3 pops. I killed him all 3 times, and had TH2 and no drop. This guy isn't worth camping. So don't bother. Sides his drop is worth only 20k on Garuda, last time I checked. I said to heck with it and moved onto other NMs. I figured I had a better chance of getting JJ (The rabbit near sandy).

no drop =/
Stingy NM
# Jun 30 2006 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
I've beaten this thing 3 times and it hasn't even dropped a blood. The thing is a stingy little booger. I beat him easy with my bst 46 and with my drg 56. I've also seen friends kill it many times and they never have gotten a drop. He spawns about two hours apart for me and usually around the south or east wall. Good luck on prying anything from his cold little hands... stingy twit!

Blood worth 10k per blood and 100k-110k per stack on Ifrit.
# Apr 17 2006 at 10:32 PM Rating: Decent
while farming blood in this swamp i have cumulatively killed him 8 times... no amulet, ever, only fiend blood(worthless) and i had TH2 every time

I've had the pleasure of camping that spot unbothered by anyone for a total of probably 3 hours (cumilatively) over the past month. I usually get stuck running between Hexmarsh and Rotmarsh, because people generally don't bother if they can't get that esteemed spot.

I've had him pop 2 times, got a go at him only once, and got a water crystal out of it. I would' preffered he dropped nothing and saved me the inventory space.

Seen him pop while farming around the area. No drop
with TH2 twice!! ; ;
Got the Bloodbead Amulet
# Nov 26 2005 at 4:17 AM Rating: Decent
I was running around there and figured I would try camping him out. Took a couple hours to pop but I got him and got the Bloodbead Amulet drop but not the Ruby.
Annoyed with this
# Nov 08 2005 at 8:23 PM Rating: Decent
I've killed this thing 9 times already and no Carbuncle Ruby, do i have to be on the quest to get the drop?

You can more easily get the ruby from killing normal leech type mobs in Buburimu, Valkurm, Maze of Shakrami, Qufim, etc. No need to wait for a NM spawn to try to get such a rare drop.
Vorax on Bismarck

This guy is also heavily camped by Gilsellers on Bismarck, and for 19-22k is certainly not worth camping. I was there a moment ago, the seller killed everything apart from water elementals which she obviously knew would aggro to my magic casting. Sure enough i was beaten with a provoke on Vorax. Waste of time.

didn't seem that busy when i was there, and i'm on Bismarck. spent 5 hours farming beastman blood and the only other person that showed up was a 75rdm, he killed a few crawlers and leeches then left. vorax spawned after about 3 hours and we killed it pretty quick. no drop though...

On sylph the drop is cheap

The blood bead amulet is barely 10k, i got it once only cause i was farming blood and silk and the gill farmer was busy with a bogy lol. Im pretty sure the reason y this thing is not worth hunting is cause everyone who farms blood claims him if they see him. overall there r other things to hunt but should u see him while walking by, get him :)

I was campping this guy a few days ago. i was there for 12 hours ^_^ 3 stacks of blood 2 stacks of silk ^_^ im 1/5 on bloodbead. its cheap to buy it but camping him gets you lotsa cash on the blood and silk ^_^

he always spawn near the trees and its about a 2-4 hour spawn time sometimes if you can kill the leeches fast he spawns in about 30 min

I just killed him!
# Apr 24 2005 at 7:34 AM Rating: Decent
It's taken 6 attempts to get a drop, but I just got the Amulet from him now. I was farming all alone in the spawn area when up he popped. As I was running to him I was so relaxed, what with being all alone and no competition.

Then suddenly I DC! WTF!!! NOOOOO!!!

Luckily I was still alone when I got back in and he was there waiting for me. :)

EDIT!! I have to add this little story....

I continued to farm after I got the drop. I wanted to complete a second stack of Beastmen Blood so I stayed for a while after. The NM pops again and I'm all alone. Now, as most of you are aware the drop is a Rare item. So I can't get it again since I still hold it from before. So killing him again is a waste (except for maybe Carby Ruby). So I call my LS and tell them that he's popped, all the while following him around unclaimed. Little Taru says he'll come and join me, but needs to get near so that he can invite me to party. I tell him to hurry before someone else comes in. All the time I'm looking around... keeping an eye on the area entance and making sure someone doesn't log into the area behind me and steal the claim.

Anyway, Taru says he's almost there. I'm still stood on top of NM unclaimed right near the entrance to the pop zone. All of a sudden another players comes in! I tell Taru that someone's here and I'm gonna have to claim it. But this player kills one mob and then leaves! Taru invites me to party and I kill NM....

no drop! LOL. At least we tried, and I didn't want to waste the NM completely.

ok, i dont see why you camped him for 6 pops that useless. . . first off its only work 20k and second off you can make that in like 1 hr on crawlers its just a waste of time on this guy
RE: I just killed him!
# Oct 16 2005 at 10:11 PM Rating: Decent
Darwinion said 6 attempts, I don't think he stayed for 6 pops in a row. He was farming Beastman blood too, that's been going for 50~70k a stack on Sylph. I've spent some time farming there too, mainly for the blood & silk (go figure). I'm about 0/15 on this NM for the drop, even a few times I had (2)Thiefs 45+.

Edited, Sun Oct 16 23:30:23 2005
I got him too!
# Mar 24 2005 at 12:06 PM Rating: Default
I've gotten this sucker twice so far and got the drop the first time. For some reason there is always someone camping him but with I always seem to pull it off them. His a tough lil bugger I got him as a 45 THF and it took me longer than I thought to kill his punk ***. I think he has like 600+ HP. He kept missing though so he never really hurt me. I think his spawn time is 2 hours but I always show up right when his about to spawn. hehehe^^ if only the emperor was that easy.

i was walking around wit my rdm just killing stuff(31rdm)when i see him pop.i turn around ,we fight,i kick it's ***, get ammy and now im 1/1 wit the ammy
# Feb 21 2005 at 7:30 PM Rating: Default
this is one of the most annoying NM's out there. It seems like he never is going to pop and when he does he rarely drops the Bloodbead Amulet. Not to mention the clan of gilsellers that are always there on the Sylph server.

went farming in pashow with my wife to get some money for the upcoming wedding and figured might as well camp Bloodpool while im there, in 2 days (2-3 hours each day) i havent seen him once, maybe i didnt stay long enough but i just left pashow after 3 hours of killing damn near everything in the spawn area.. maybe he doesnt like me cuz he knows i'll whomp his ***.. ><

Edited, Fri Feb 18 20:24:52 2005
1/2 with bloodpool vorax
# Jan 24 2005 at 11:13 AM Rating: Decent
the two times i've camped this bloodsucker s/he's popped within 30 minutes. no drop 1st time, bloodbead amulet and fiend blood 2nd time.

fun NM to camp because the surrounding crawlers and leeches will give ya something to farm while you wait.

g'luck ^^
