I dont know whats going on with this guy. You say an hour +/- spawn time?? i camped him for 3 hours and never saw him once. Its not like i can miss him. its not a big spawn area...
I hate him.

I have killed him 3 times so far and he has dropped light soleas each time. After waiting the hour spawn time, I finally look up the hunter's longbow and see its only for rangers. Get back to town and see it sells for 13k on Lakshmi. I should have my head examined for camping him when I don't plan on leveling Ranger any time soon.

i remember just using widescan 4 fun and spotting him on it >< when i got near him i heard that he just casted Utsusmei...i knew it was a NM (supposedly) cause it had a wierd name compared to all the other yags...so i started fighting it and when it was @ about 2/5 hp it used Mijiin Gakure and did little damage but he reappeared right behind me...i was like WTF O.O...then i killed him and got a pair of Light Soleas -.-

it took me 8 kills as a thf with TH2 to get the bow. strangly enough, i haven't heard anything about people getting more than 1 bow from this guy. several people have said "only 1 bow from Juu".
i'm sure this is not true but the thought makes me curddle. and the bow isn't even rare...
im going to test this rumor out.

Happy hunting!

I was just hunting this thing yesterday and i almost got it too but a theif shot it first. But she didn't get the drop so there's some consolation there i guess. P.S. I also saw what smudgeus saw it used Mijin Gakure and then respawned 20 ft away. Weird.

I was actaully farming Yag necklaces the past week, and I believe I killed this NM 2 or 3 times. I wonder if it was me you saw?
I know the Light Soleas he drops aren't worth much (2k in Windy, 3k in other cities).
Some spawning info...

After spending some more time camping Juu Duzu, I figured I'd just make another post about the actual spawning information, rather than just appending it to my previous post.

The area that Juu Duzu spawns in is a small square area, most of which is in the southwest corner of J-11. The west half of this square is raised above the east half, and inaccessible once you jump down from the west side.

In the east side of the square is a 3-pillared gazebo-looking structure near a clump of 3 trees, roughly halfway north of the area. Juu Duzu, himself, will spawn in the square area south of the gazebo/trees, and west of the path that leads west at J/K-12.

In order to make Juu Duzu appear, you need to kill the 4 Digger Wasps that spawn in the whole rectangular area. One bee appears at each location:
- in the tunnel between J-10/11
- in the northern half of the rectangular area, usually around one of the small marshes
- in the southern half of the rectangular area
- in the tunnel between J/K-12

Each wasp has a respawn time of 8 minutes, as do the 6 Yagudos (randomly Pipers, Persecutors, or Mendicants) that spawn (3 north of the gazebo, 3 south of the gazebo). Juu Duzu himself seems to spawn every 2 hours or so that the wasps are killed, so just bide your time killing them first and any Yagudos when you're bored of waiting for respawns, and you should see him pop right in front of you.

Decided to try camping him as I was farming necklaces in Giddeus (odd to only see 5 total other people there, and none further south than Hoo Mjuu). Killed the placeholder bees and basically anything that moved for roughly 10 minutes, resting back mp and hp between each fight. He spawned right next to where I was healing and I just laid a beat-down on him.

However, once he was down to about 10% health, the oddest thing happened. He used Ranged Attack, immediately followed with a Mijin Gakure. I waited for the 'Terfy has defeated Juu Duzu the Whirlwind' message to pop up when I realized he respawned behind me, with the same 10% health left. His Mijin Gakure did hit me for an incredible 8 dmg without protect up, yet he didn't die from the attack. I wound up only getting light soleas for my trouble, but being able to see this odd glitch made up for it.

I hate the whirlwind. Camped him 6 times now. Got the stupid Light Soleas Boots 6 times. Not that big of a deal cause they go for 2000-3000 in Windy on Bahamut, but I want that bow.
# Aug 20 2004 at 11:19 AM Rating: Decent
i was camping this and Huu mjuu the Torrent at the same time, when one spawned i would go to the other. I was camping the whirlwind for a bout 5 mins and he spawned right next to me. Easy kill, and i got the Hunters longbow. About 10-12k in Windurst.

help with this NM

From what I understand and have seen, the only thing that affects drop rates are how strong the enemy is relative to your strangth. I get a lot less drops from enemies that are "too weak" than from even "easy preys", and it's not because of crystal drops not happening anymore. Other than that only the thief job traits of "Treasure Hunter" affect drop rates

From my experience
# Jul 24 2004 at 4:26 AM Rating: Decent
I hate this NM.....just for the simple fact that he's a pain to hit....I've seen him pop tons of times...always down below, never up on the ledge...so myth busted. The one thing that I'm wondering about tho is whether he spawns after a certain time, everytime, or if he's a lottery pop...every time I've camped him, I've been so bored outta my mind that I have always cleared the area anyways....just wondering if anyone has some input...BTW...I'm runnin 0/3 on bow drop, got soleas <sp?> everytime so far...

Something I've noticed...I found out he is a lottery pop, but also saw that he shares his spawn points with the wasps in the area, 4 I believe, and only on the south side of the area. He has a pretty small area where he pops...keep the wasps dead, and you'll get him....hope this helps...0/6 on bow drop now ><

Can anyone tell me his spawn time? I'm looking to camp this and get the bow for someone in my LS and a spawn time would make things alot easier.
no soleas
# Jul 20 2004 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
Soleas does not drop 100%, I am now 2/4 (first bow w/ the help of BahamutFetus :P). The two times the Bow dropped, the Soleas DID NOT drop.
