o.O Necklaces are for Norg fame, it will actually decrease your fame in Windy when you turn them in.
Finally got 1

After I lost Hoo Mjuu to some random mnk, husband and I took a turn down the pathway to this guys spawn site, found him, killed him, got the bow.

Not as good as the Monster's Signa, but hey, it's a drop. Sells for 20-40k on Alexander.

Ok, I've killed him 6 times in the last 2 days and everytime i get nothing but light soleas! A little upsetting so far, maybe i'll give it one more shot, who knows.
1 pop 0 drop

I was lvl 25 so i needed the keys for Kahzam. So me and my friend went here it pops to wait for a teo/preist or a Votary. So we waited in like 20 min and this one pops. I was like omfg we gonna die! Cuz i didnt know if it was hard. But we attacked it and it used Mijin and i had red hp cuz we trained like 15 times b4 this 1 poped. So i was like HELP ME IM GONNA DIE. Then my friend used One Inch Punch and it died. We didnt get the bow but the boots XD

Okay , i walk around in Giddeus one day waiting to do my DRKAF1 (had help coming from jeuno) and i see a weird name on one of these birds,i attack it but my hit doesnt do damage (utsusemi) so it tries to hit me and misses. 5 Real life minutes pass by untill i finaly do damage and kill it in 1 hit... Got light soleas,guess this thing has massive agility and evasion...
lottery spawn

this is probably a stupid question but what is lottery spawn? it just randomly spawns or you have to kill a certain numbers of <n> to make it spawn? im so confused!

Not a stupid question at all. I dont know much but from what i can tell a lottery spawn works a little like drop rates.

Say there is a rare drop and it like 1/20 of a mob. well lottery spawn works similar. In that you kill certain placeholders there is a chance that in the next round of spawns, lets say a 1/20 chance, that the mob will appear instead of a placeholder.

Place holders are basically a mob of a certain type, say a Yagudo Mendicant, and there will be only so many of them, say 10 max in an area at the one time. So if you kill 2 and they spawn every 5 minutes, then youll see 2 respawn when the time is up. The max is set so that areas arent flooded with mobs as they would be if people didnt kill them every 5 mins (in this example)

so when you kill the placeholders this guy may spawn in the next round, though his chances of occuring could be 1 in 50.

Please anyone correct me if i am wrong cause i probably am. ALSO NOTE: non of this info is true regarding Juu Duzu. i made these figures up for arguments sake

Mostly true, although in many cases (VE, Hoo Mjuu, LL, JEJ, etc.) there may be 10 mobs that are the same kind as the placeholder in the area, however only 1 of them will be the actual placeholder, and is therefore the only monster that need be killed in order to spawn the NM. The easiest way to recognize which one it is is through widescan. Killing the other monsters of the same type won't help spawn the Monster at all, though you may need to anyway if you don't have widescan or are otherwise unsure of the PH, or want to prevent links.
got the drop!
# Mar 29 2005 at 9:43 PM Rating: Decent
The score for me is 1/3. I just killed him again and got the drop (Hunters Longbow). Too bad I already bought one earlier, but this will sell nicely. Twice he used his 2-hr, but I could still hit him. Ive got a video of the fight.
RE: got the drop!
# May 08 2005 at 4:12 AM Rating: Decent
wait, what?

he...used the ninja 2 hour twice, but you could still hit him?

i thought ninja 2 hour was suicide.

or does he get thief 2 hour?

no, hes right, its the nin 2 hr Majin Garuke (spelling?) anyway, he uses it, does a ton o dmg, falls over dead, and then gets right back up, no loss to his HP.

I've also seen the nin NM yag in garrison do this.Wiped out all our cantidates :( then got right back up and started hitting us >.<

Yeah, NMs that use Mijin Gakure don't actually die. They just play dead for a second before getting back up and into the fight.

Was running around trying to find a chest to use my key on... fell down the cliff and noticed a yag with a funny name. Voked it without a 2nd thought, and whipped out my GS. I got a little nervous when i realized he was a NIN, but a few shots from my xbow wiped out his utsesumi. After that, 2 swipes and he was dead... all in all i got a laff and a pair of light soleas out of it.

think i'll run south after Hoo Mjuu for now on ;)

When I fought this guy he used the NIN 2-hr ability on me (can't spell it) but it didn't die, just reappeared some distance away with the same HP and stuff. So yeah...

Fun NM to camp, well, at least for me it is! ^^

I tend to come down to Giddeus to farm necklaces, I didn't have any idea of NM's in Giddeus, thought there were only crappy quest ones! So I'm running along with my little chu chu after killing thoses dreaded quest NM's, after a couple of Waterga/Stonega a lot of Yags fall! ^^ I walk through this little area and decide to rest!

1 min after resting an interesting thing pops up, a Yag with a strange name, hmm, another quest NM! >.< /c = Impossible to Gauge Hmm, odd?

Let's kill it, linkage no problems, notice he uses ninja abilities, about 1/3 of his hp, he kills himself! Then he reappears, he comes back, stone II, death be to him...

Chat log, you find Hunters Longbow, hmm, check stats, seems kinda good for RNG, go back to Windurst... 35K! Oh wow, good for me, need seers gear! But I planned on going RNG sooner or later, decided not to sell... Go back and camp him, two more kills, 1st time only Soleas, 2nd time... Yay!

So there you have it, 2/3 on Juu, don't intend on camping him again, got what I wnated! ^^ So as I said, fun fun!

I was camping this NM today for my good friend Elenie, she just got ranger to 10 and would like to have this bow for the dunes. I found the camp site, killed about five yagudos and he spawned. Tore through his shadows and fried him with Tachi:Kagero. All i got were the soleas, not a bad drop though, would prolly use them on pld. I was intent on getting that bow for her so I stayed there for about 2 hours I think, killing yagudos and wasps and getting nice drops. I got a stack of beehive chips and almost 20 necklaces before my inventory was full. Lucky for me no one on seraph over camps this NM. I met one JP player but he gave up after a half hour. I ran into a few necklace farmers and was more than happy to give them my necklaces. I don't plan on doing ninja anytime soon. Pretty soon Juu spawns, I use my 300tp and bam, I have a Hunter's Longbow. This may seem like a lot for this one weapon, but it goes for 25k in jeuno here on Seraph. This is a good NM to camp though because of the farming you can do while waiting.

I was farming Yagudo Bead Necklaces and suddenly he spawns and links with another Yagudo.
I didn't even realise he was an NM as I was just killing all the Yagudo in sight and had no clue where the NMs spawned anyway.
It then auto-targetted on to him and I read his name carefully and thought, oh damn this might be an NM, so I quickly Flash it. I thought this was probably the sucky NM that drops the Aspir Knife so I didn't think too much of it.
1 Vorpal Blade later he was dead and dropped the bow. Sold for 15k.. yay..
1 kill 1 drop
# Nov 27 2004 at 4:21 PM Rating: Decent
was fighting a teologist something like that on the cliff and i was flipping through the names of yags to see what was there (was allmost dead looking for next victim) and i saw him i was like 31mnk/war atm and i had like 200 hp out of the 600 or so hp. I had to disengage the theologist and ran for him and voked him the theologist sleeped me then smacked me and i woke up. I think 4 others yags linked w/ the Nm and theologist so i 2hrd owned them all got the bow and my hubbie (was farming yag/bee hive chips w/ me) was very happy but... bow only sells for 9k in Gilgamesh :( also i got yelled at by another camper who was camping it for like 3 hrs...sucks for her ; ;

I hope not. 0_0 You have to kill the placeholders to get it to spawn I think. He spawns faster that way. Besides you get cool drops out there as you say.

Ive only seen him camped a coupel of times

# Dec 25 2004 at 10:44 PM Rating: Decent
Well speaking of 1 kill 1 drop, just so happens I ran by him with a train of about 15 or more yagudo's chasing me. I was farming for bead necklaces and I was a 51 MNK/BLM (BLM subbed for warp cause im to lazy to walk to windy). When i saw him I could tell he was an NM, but I didnt know how strong he was so I said "***** it" (in different words lol) and started swinging on him. Just my luck turned out he was a punk and died quickly along with the other's chasing me. Spinning attack made short work of them all, and I got the hunters longbow. For the rest of the day i looked for him. I later sold the bow for 17k. Thats lucky. Southtexas= 51mnk/34sam/25war/24blm/12rdm/12bst/11drg/10nin. on carbuncle.

Farming in giddeus is great with the bees, yags and harvesting points. I always run around in a circles amongst the rooms on the west (I think ><) where Juu spawns. My husband got me into getting this NM and unlike Hoo which is WAY over camped with TOTAL losers that stay there 24/7 to get another 400k for themselves…

Anywho, his record is great, which is totally frustrating for me who’s now 0/7 on this ugly, stoopid, suicidal, respawn across the room to ***** you up YAG! (/em take a few deep cleansing breaths)

He’s managed to get it around 15-20 times, got the bow at least 7 times out of all his encounters, PLUS managed to get the drop 4 out of 5 times in one day while farming there!!!!!!!! Which means 80k (goes for 20k on my server Garuda) profit in one day (which doesn't take into account the gil he made off the yags and his farming results).

I only want one drop, just one, to keep for myself, cuz I need gill for spells and not for weapons for jobs that aren’t my main ><. My husband was sweet enough to offer to loan me his, but this is personal now! Sure, I may have to take him up on his offer at this rate, BUT I really want Juu! ;_;

I finally got the bow today!

I was just wandering around Giddeus (for what reason? I don't know) and I saw about 4 dead lower lv people... I start looking around and there he was!

While fighting him, he blew himself up and just respawned with almost no life life. Kill em, got the drop, and Now I've gotten the drop off all the Yag NMs in Giddeus
80 kill no drop -_-

First NM
# Oct 30 2004 at 2:48 PM Rating: Decent
I sat around for what seemed like forever (though this is my first time camping a NM), maybe 2 hours, i suppose i could have missed one of the pops though. I need the bow for my RNG and i figured i'd go for it while i did some homework. only dropped the solea though. 0/1 The fight was easy, i was my 29 WHM and it never hit me once.
# Oct 29 2004 at 8:58 PM Rating: Decent
Ya i camped him and got the bow for my ranger then i kinda outgrew the bow and sold it. then a friend of mine asked me to help get it for him. im 1/5 on the bow drop. i dont think its all that rare of a drop

I was wandering around Giddeus picking up some ecklaces for Norg fame, when I see him while Tabbing about, I cast Dia II. He attacks, Easy kill, Got a laugh from his Mijin-Teleport. Got the Hunters longbow and the Bird whistle in one run. Well I get back And I see that the Whistle is 6000, No biggie, Not like i was looking for them. I look up the longbow and it says the last one was sold TODAY (Otober 22,04) For 33000!
I was estatic, Im thinking im having a lucky day today. BEtter go check for emporer. :D
Gogeta at Kujata, Btw.

Well awwwww one day i was farming for Yagudo Bead Necklaces to raise my norg fame (ninjusu cost so damn much!). I was running around the spwan area killing Yagudos when I saw it! I went to voke but but some japanese player got it before me:( and he got drop. The next game day I came back and it was 3 in the morning (RLT) and no 1 was camping it, after a couple kills it spawned I voke it and got drop ^^

sry about your luck tho

And we cross paths...

I was farming in Giddeus when I saw this yagudo. Alone. As in, there was no other player around in the area. So I became giddy and fought him.

He dropped a light solea, though it would have been cool if he dropped a Hunter's Longbow as well. I wouldn't have use for the bow, but a friend of mine is a RNG and I'm sure he would have been happy if it appeared in his delivery box.

Ah well, I'm happy, and I did send my RNG friend the light solea ^^b
