Started a new char, so I was a 10war/no sub, fought him once in basic hume gear, had to use a temp potion and 2 hours to kill him. Second fight I was level 11 with better armour, 2 houred with regen and protect and bairly managed to win.


and the drop would really start my new character off well :D
Is it overcamped?
# Oct 07 2009 at 12:23 PM Rating: Decent
Hey I'm gonna camp this for my wife's THF and if I'm lucky/patient enough I'll get one for myself to sell. Is this one of those overcamped mobs? I read that the Rabbit Charm has like a 1% chance of dropping. Also anyone know the PH? Or respawn after JEJ is killed?
# Aug 28 2009 at 1:36 AM Rating: Decent
So.. There's the widescan.. now which one is the PH? Surely not all 3.. because like with LL there'd be more than one JEJ.. If nobody has this particular information, maybe I could dig it up?
/rng works
# Aug 15 2009 at 2:38 PM Rating: Decent
you know the best way to look for NM's is using /rng, you can do wide scan and track were the nm is. That's how it's normally done.
close but nope not yet

Me and my friend camped JEJ for about three hours i decided to call it quits and head to the wc as im leaving a message appears "got em sighted" three hits later he fell. we was around h-9 killin hares when he showed up 0/1 on the drop.
i was lvl 16whm/8thf my friend was lvl 16mnk/8thf


BST solo
# Mar 10 2009 at 8:19 PM Rating: Decent
I was leveling my BST (10) when this guy popped.

For all the people saying "Is it possible to solo..."

NO ITS NOT. I did kill it. However, I threw half the goddam zone at it. If one of those charms had failed i'd have been SCREWED. took about 10-15 minutes... no kidding, the mobs i was throwing at it hit for maybe 5 while he dealt about 24 a hit. I was looking for anything just to throw at it by the end to save my ***!

Regardless, if you are not a BST I would definitely NOT recommend fighting this!! The few times i got hit changing mobs i was VERY close to death and hap no Mp to cure with... So again, NOT A BST, DON'T TRY ANYWHERE NEAR LEVEL 10.

If you are a BST... get ready for the fight of your frieken career. 0/1 btw

Ive seen this little bunny twice.

The first time, I was passing by on my chocobo, happened to see him and im like DIEEE!

The second time, I was leveling Dark Knight, happened to look at my battlespam, some dragoon was fighting him. I look over, dragoon dies, I call a linkshell buddy, and she kills the bunny of death.

0/2 And leveling darknight to a level where I can kill the stupid bunny "currently 8"
Finding him

Not that amny of you know but if you are a lvl 9-10 going after this, DONT!
Jaggedy-Eared Jack is lvl 9-10 But has the strength and health of a lvl 12
so make sure you go for this with sub-job as DNC,RDM of WHM to cure ureself and make sure your main job is somthing like WAR,RNG,THf might be good idea,DRG or NIN
bye bye jack

Well, I have now killed Jack with every job in the game before they reached to 12. A long long time ago I got kind of obsessed with him. I started of camping some low-level NMs when I was around level 15 WAR and no subjob and Jack just took a little longer then the others. Every time I didnt get drop I thought; ok, one more try. After finally getting the charm as BLM (around 1/60) I still couldn't resist everytime passing by and seeing him unclaimed and to kind of not kill my Jack-oholism with a chock I set up a little plan: To kill him with every job before level 12 and try it out on all jobs before 9. It was also a little fun test to see how different jobs were coping with the task.
Now I will just give him a /poke next time. :)
Funniest fight (and closest) was probably as BRD/WAR with one event egg macroed in that gave a bonus while under a song.
I H-A-T-E JEJ!!!

Alright here's the deal with JEJ. There are 3 place holder Forest Hares in H-9 which have a respawn time of about 5 mins. Continuously sleigh these 3 bunnies and you will eventually spawn JEJ. He spawns every 50 mins - 3+ hours. Basically once the timer expires if you kill the place holder he will pop on the respawn. Typical spawn for me has been 3:10-3:20 range. On an incredibly rare occasion it will drop a Rabbit Charm. It typically sells for 200k+ on AH making it an attractive target for gil sellers / botters. Now I have killed this thing a ton of times and never gotten the Charm to drop, so don't sweat it if you take him out and get nothing but a rabbit hide(you're not alone). He has approx. 250-275 HP and is soloable at lvl 10 for most jobs. Wide Scan helps but is not mandatory to have. From my experience the best place to scan (esp when using a low lvl BST) is right next to the cliff face in the SE of H-9. Good Luck! (I know I could use some...)
0/24 Jeggedy Eared Jack and counting...

was levling my lvl 8 mnk, and ran across fungus beetle. decided to try to take it, although i was pretty sure i'd lose. and i did. so i come back on my lvl 12 WAR to kill it, but it was nowhere to be found. so i start killing some beetles and while i was at it, some rabbits to see if JEJ would show up. just as i was about to quit and log out. i start scanning through monsters, and my heart jumped up my throat when i saw Jaggedy-Eared Jack (around J-8, J-9)in my target box, and UNCLAIMED. no campers nearby, i voke it, and pop 2-hour right away. i didn't wanna play around and go easy. he knocked about 50% of my HP but i killed him in the end. no drop, but the adrenaline rush was worth the 40 minutes of camping.

That's right. This is my first encounter with the little bug-eyed critter and as he popped, 4 players log on at the same time right where he spawned. I rushed over as quick as I could, thinking by the time I get to him, it'll be claimed and I'll have to watch them fight. But no, I cast Dia and the battle began. Only downfall to my thievery, no rabbit charm afterwards. Oh well, I had a good laugh for getting to battle while getting slapped and examined 100 times lol. Good luck to the rest of you trying.

I spent 3 hours yesterday waiting for this stupid NM to pop, on the plus side i got nearly 50 rabbit hides, i guess i can make some rabbit mantles.

im going to test this more tomorrow, but after going 0/62 i finally decided to try to figure this guys pop out. i use thf/rng with lvl 37 rng sub for this. i had the area to myself and kept all mobs alive to test this. ive found that in widescan, if u scroll 3-4 pages down, there is a group of 3 rabbits. these 3 (or one of them) are the placeholders. i killed only these 3 mobs and they all respawned in the same spot in widescan after approx 5 minutes. after a few rounds of killing, JEJ popped as the 3rd(bottom) rabbit on the list in that group.

this group of 3 rabbits has orc fodder, gob weaver/thug, and 4 sheep above it in list (give or take according to if people are killing mobs), and below them is a carrion worm, funguar, 2 beetles, 2 sheep etc... in nighttime, there was an Enchanted Bones just above the group of 3 rabbits, and JEJ popped while it was out. this doesnt mean it only pops at night because it certainly doesnt.

Still have to test to see if Fungus Beetle NM plays any role in JEJ's popping. and i will test this theory out more in the next couple days, but i am rather sure that it is accurate. (follows along the same lines as most nm like VE and LL and orctrap etc..) more info to come. :) 0/63

edit: i stand next to a white tree near middle of its spawn area, just north of where the path curves leading south.
