Well I have been farming all day in his spawn area, and so far he has popped twice...seems like he pops every 4 hours or so, not sure he spawns every hour if you kill 50 leeches though...killed him twice anyway and 0 drops...not a damn thing.

Camped this a couple days, before I got TH2 and decided Beastmen Blood was good money, and I kept getting bored and just leaving, which is very unlike me. I love killing NMs.

Anyway, after I got THF to 45 and got TH2, I decided to farm Goobbues and Thread Leeches, and finally saw this lil guy. Wasn't much of a problem at all, and I would venture to say he's about the same difficulty as a normal thread leech. Got the drop on the first kill, with a fiend blood... wtf, really... the thread leeches drop beastmen blood, and this thing, who's supposed to be a stronger version drops a lesser item? heh...

Anyway, that same farming session, I fought him again, but already had the drop. I let it hit me over and over trying to find someone to invite and give the drop to, but no one wanted it, I guess, so I just killed it. Didn't drop that time, anyway...

Um... can a lvl 33pld/16war solo him?
Camping this NM
# Jul 04 2004 at 6:42 PM Rating: Decent
I camped the crud out of this NM just to learn its timing, locations, etc. You can make it pop once an hour by killing 50 leaches in his spawn area. He drops the Amulet about once ever 4 kills on average, from whate I've seen, but obviously drops them more or less depending on your good or bad luck :) The red circle on the above map is very accurate.
Bloodpool Vorax, horrible drop rate.
# Jun 21 2004 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
I've killed this notorious monster 4-5 times and not only did it not drop its main drop, it dropped NOTHING each time. The drop rate is so bad even with Treasure Hunter I nothing dropped, not even blood. I'm getting to the point that I'll just ignore him if I see him and continue farming regular leeches, its THAT bad.

Hmm, thats odd, everytime I have seen this NM the Amulet has dropped.
Ultimate kick in the teeth
# Jun 19 2004 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
A friend and I yesterday killed emporor once..No drop, no biggy. We killed Jolly Green, no drop no biggy. We killed Bloodpool, no drop no biggy. We killed Jolly Green again no drop no biggy. My friend proceeded to leave. We went back to Sandy he logged I stayed up. I sold some things since I was farming the area and decided to go back to the spawn area one last time. I went to Selbina first on a chocobo, walked to Pashow. Someone was there farming or camping I suppose. Bloodpool spawned within 10 minutes I proceed to grab him quickly. I slaughter him..AND HE DROPS A CARBUNCLE RUBY!!!!! The problem here is I allready have SMN. Man I camp it for the Amulet and get an even rarer drop.

spawn time
# Jun 08 2004 at 9:55 AM Rating: Decent
I got him lastnight. No drop. No big fuss really. I was there for other things anyways. But it sure got my heart pumping, knowing that I got a NM.

Does anyone know his spawn frequency? Is it like every 2-4 hours like Valkurm Emp? I know it's a lottery pop, but is there a time range for it? Like every hour or two?

I have fought Bloodpool Vorax three times now, and two times out of the three, he dropped the Bloodbead Amulet. ^^ Once, I had a level 15 THF sub, but last time I got the drop, I had WAR subbed. (I'm a level 40 MNK/WAR on Pandemonium.) On a somewhat random note, I've also fought Jolly Green once, and he dropped the Shaman's Belt, too.

As for those who asked whether you can solo Bloodpool at certain levels or not, I had no trouble soloing him and the other Leeches at level 34. Now that I'm level 40, it's easy as pie. I just use Chakra every now and then to heal any accumulated damage, and have no downtime. ^^

I've been farming around his spawn point for a couple days now...not specifically looking for him, but he if comes up I'll take him.

Anyways...I've been killing tons of leeches (I have 3 stacks of Beastmens Blood now), and I've only seen him pop once in 2 days. I've also been the only one here aside from the occasional visitor for a minute or two...and they haven't killed him.

Does this guy ever spawn??

Easy to Camp

From my personal experience, Bloodpool Vorax is relatively easy to camp. Plus, if you want to farm, it's enjoyable. The enemies have very decent respawn times in his little part of the Marshlands, and in two days, I had a stack of Silk Threads and Beastman Blood. 26K in Gil right there makes it worth it, in my opinion. ^^

I ran into him three times. The first time, a RDM who was in the area with me got it first, but that's only because I was on the other side of the spot -- they didn't even have WAR subbed to use Provoke. The second time, he was just sitting on the beach, so I beat him up with Hundred Fists and got the Bloodbead Amulet. ^^ Yay! I cheered and equipped it (since I was mostly naked for farming purposes ^^;) and kept killing leeches.

The next time it popped, I knew a little BLM Taru nearby was searching for it. He and I were the only ones in the area. So, I poked him, and then I pointed at it. "Kohan points at Bloodpool Vorax." ^^ Needless to say, he scurried over there and got it, but he didn't get the drop. However, he was grateful that I gave it to him, and Cured me for the rest of my farming time. ^^ (I couldn't have gotten the drop again, since it was still in my inventory, so I wasn't going to be greedy.)

Maybe it's not the most valuable NM drop in the world, but so what? It's not that hard to get. It's useful, too. If you can't sell it, just keep it and use it for sub/fun jobs. Or give it away as a present. At least you can say you killed an NM if you've had poor luck with them in the past. ^^

(I have... killed Tom Tit Tat about five times, Spiny Spipi twice, and Bloodpool once, and he's the first NM to give me something. ^^;)

O.O what server are you on that a stack of Beastmen Blood + A stack of Silk = 26k Oo. On midgar if i had both i would get 300k, Silks are 100k and Bloods are 200k per stack

aah i am still to lil to camp these buggers but i can tell you that on ifrit they go around the 10k area depends on what AH you are at i think they are slightly cheaper at jeuno if you are just looking to buy! hope it helps good luck to everyone camping the item and even in the end hopefully you have a stack or two of silks and it was worth it!!

I got bored one day and I was walking through Passhow and I decided to camp this thing out - Tons of crawler's and leechs here so if you need silk thread and beastmans blood definitely a good place to collect - also there's a water elemental for some clusters even though Water Crystals suck but it's gil, right? So I'm killing Leechs for like 15 mins and I see it - so I voke it - kill it easily as level 37 dark/war - and I got the drop! i was goin nuts cuz it was my first NM drop ever! I go to Sandy to sell it for 12k on Garuda Server - doesn't sell. Sell it again for 10k - no sell - 9k no sell - 8.5k no sell! I was getting pissed so i just put it in my bazaar for 6k someone bought it from there and I wasn't too happy ! Don't bother with him unless you want the silk thread cause you know that sells well!
no luck for me either
# Mar 06 2004 at 12:42 AM Rating: Decent

100% NM item 1 out of 1 try. wwaited about 40min.
the item is not really worth the time though
RE: I got it

Im a lv34 Ranger, was subbing Ninja and thought that he only spawned if you sickled the ??? there. Im farming and i see him. I didnt know if could kill him, the other leeches are a bit tough to take down, i take about 50-100 dmg per fight. SO to be safe i fire off my Eagle Eye Shot and do 488 dmg, he is badly wouned with like 25% HP left, maybe a hit or 2 from my Tomahawks thats +100 dmg and i finish him with a 200 dmg Barrage. He has roughly 800 Health points, he isnt very tough to kill, but all i got was 20exp. No Amulet, ive been killing leeches for like 6 hours but i havent seen this guy before just now, i think his spawn is completly random. That one guy got lucky seeing him twice in 1 hour. It is not a 100% drop, more like 25% or something

^ Don't listen to this idiot. Just because you never got it on the first try doesn't mean that it's impossible or that he "stole" it from a JP. But then again, you ARE a bitter little crybaby.

It was you, after all, who cursed at me for "ruining your entire day" when I came to farm this spot when you were already there. Guess what? You don't own the spot. I can farm wherever and whenever I want, regardless of who is already in the spot.

I camp this area every so often, mostly for Silks and Beastmens Blood, and I've fought Bloodpool Vorax about 6 times. I finally got the Amulet today after him dropping nothing all the previous times. I'm a 42PLD/WAR, so there wasn't even TH involved. :)
