The circled section of the map is definatly wrong he onlyspawns down below. Ive camped him 3 times:
1st time: Spawned by lake-droped light solares.
2nd time: Spawned on the little mound by the trees, same drop.
3rd time: waited about 2 and a half hrs and no spawn...was werid.

People like you really REALLY annoy me. Learn to spell and go to hell.

o yes, and, both times he spawned in the little pond
and both times i wasnt looking

luckily, no one else was camping it and i hear him cast utsusemi, turned around, spammed dia, and proceeded to kick his ***

Not: he will use Mijin Galure when u drop his HP down to near death, but at lvl 30, it only dealt 7 dmg, lol

I have fought this guy about 15 to 20 times. I got the bow the first time and have gotten the soleas every single other time.

I have never seen him spawn on the ledge either. Always in the puddle of watter or in a few trees across the path from the water..
# Jun 22 2004 at 3:28 PM Rating: Decent
I think Light Soleas is an 100% drop cause outta all the lots of times i've killed him, i've gotten the soleas EVERY TIME. (4000 gil x 11 times.. hmmm...) O yeah, i never got the bow >< There's not one time i killed him(or sum1 else killed him) who hasnt gotten soleas, that i know of. hopes this helps

I think so too, the first time I killed this guy (posted below) I got the bow, however my friend and I killed him at least 15 times after that, and we got the soleas every single time...

i was training yags here an noticed a weird name joined in but was locked on a regular yagudo. i notice a drk run my direction so i quickly grabbed him and got the soleas. kinda nice he came after me, i thought i was supposed to hunt nm not other way around. ^_^
Just killed it

Well, I lost all my money gambling with people, so I decided to do some NM hunting. (First timer here). I was orignally going for Hoo Mjuu, but then I decided to visit the Whirlwind guy too, I'm only a warrior level 24. So I go there, wait about 5-10 minutes. It spawns RIGHT ONTOP OF ME. I'm like whoa! So then I killed it and got the hunters bow. I'm so happy :D.
# Jun 14 2004 at 1:38 PM Rating: Decent
so i'm guessing a lvl 14 WAR wouldnt have any chance with this guy?

Just to answer the Questions of those asking:

I camped Juu Duzu last night for an hour and a half. I took my 30THF/11RNG to get him. At first I started out camping him on the ledge, the raised part at the top of J-12. On widescan, I saw another NM so I went after him, had to jump down off the ledge, and when I got there, Taken. Damn. Checked Widescan, Saw Juu Duzu. Got back, Taken, you've got to be kidding. But he was being fought on the bottom part, not on the ledge. So I camped him where the other guy fought him, at the bottom part of the ledge. He spawned again in 45 minutes, killed him, got my bow and got my RNG to 14 that very night. ^^

This guy spawned exactly where the map shows, just outside of the path to the east. I killed a few digger wasps in the path when I saw him. I was only level 19 THF / 15 MNK (sub) at the time so I shouted that he was there. No one came for him. I was about to head back to Windurst so I went for it (death warp back if anything). Had just over 100 TP (from the bees) and nearly full health. So I decided to go for it. I landed a “Fast Blade” Sneak attack with my trusty small sword (a bit over 100 DMG).

The battle wasn't going my way from the start. I used Perfect Dodge half way through. He used the NIN spell that absorbs a hit about 4 times during the battle. BTW, its best to pull him into the path to avoid linking, also if you are like me, below level 20 the wasps in the path will aggro you and you will die promptly, so make sure you clear it first (mine was clear thanks to, me).

We both had a sliver of health when he suddenly turned invisible. I wasn't paying attention and I thought it was over when a split second later my character dodged a ranged attack from him. WTF, run! 8HP left and running for cover like a coward. He missed at least two more ranged attacks and then finally the invisible effect had worn off. I ran at him and killed him with the very next blow. Whew! Still at 8HP and now I have an audience. Actually one guy was really annoyed that I didn't die, what an a**hole.

Finally, this was all thanks to Mithkabobs +5 STR; it would be suicide to solo this guy at less than level 20 (for a THF) w/o the food effect. He dropped the Hunter's Longbow, which sells for 20K+ on Seraph.

I hope this helps some of you that are new to the game and want to try your first NM that is actually worth camping over and over and over again.

Here is a list of the equipment I had on my Mithra THF/MNK, for all of you who want to try it:

Body: Fine Jerkin
Back: Lizard Mantle
Feet: Lizard Ledelsens
Finger1: Balance Ring
Finger2: Reflex Ring
Hands: Battle Gloves
Head: Lizard Helm
Legs: Fine Trousers
Neck: Justice Badge
Ranged: Flame Boomerang
Shield: Tropical Shield [Shield skill 0.3]
Belt: Warrior's Belt +1

Name: Menacex
Server: Seraph

Spawn Point
# May 29 2004 at 12:32 PM Rating: Decent
does he spawn on the ledge above the area or on the bottom of it? I camped the bottm for an hour and 30 and never saw him last night thanks

Update: just to update this, i was caping this morning and he spawned at J-11, i think he spawns at differet places sometimes

This guy is not level 13.
I as a level 20blm/10rdm went to fight him. Dealing so little damage to him it wasnt funny and getting hitting me for about 20 a hit i had to retreat not to mention all his "helpers".
He must be alot higher.
RE: Higher im sure
# Aug 04 2004 at 1:43 AM Rating: Decent
Notorious monsters tend to be a lot stronger than their lvl cap says. Also mage class also has some trouble with things that con as easy prey (admit it, they do sometimes), and at 20, a lvl 13 NM would be considered easy prey (if it didn't rate ITG) Try using a better strategy next time you fight, such as debuff the living **** outta him...lol

Good luck next time.

I was wandering through Giddeus and saw this guy. No one was camping him at all. I fought him, and he used the Ninja 2-hr (can't recall the name, but it's the suicidal move...uhhh Mijin Gakure?). I was about to whip his butt anyway. I got the Soleas. Just so you guys know: he does use his Ninja 2-hr.
Killed him
# Apr 21 2004 at 7:24 AM Rating: Decent
First try got the bow. All other attempts, got soleas. i sold the bow a while ago after using it in qufim and realizing it was a bit weak. I use a power bow +1 now.

2000xp to 30 Ranger. Berserk + Barrage = domination.
Fought him alot

I'm almost convinced that this guy doesn't exist - I haven't seen him once, even after countless hours of running around in Giddeus -- hardyhar. @[email protected];

What are his place-holders? Same as Hoo Mjuu's? >w<;

I was farming bees over here with my 30 war/thf. On one of my rounds I happened to see him, took him on and killed him, getting hit maybe once. Got a bow drop. Not sure how much treasure hunter helped.. I am thinking I got lucky with the drop though.

I stuck around for another hour or so, passing by the spawn point maybe... every 8-10 minutes and didnt see him again. I actually have farmed this area a lot the last week or two and this is the first time I have seen him...

Edit: Oh And he spawned exactly where the map shows, at the top of J-12.

Edit: I caught him again today and he spawned in the exact same place.

Tresure Hunter II will give you a great chance of getting that bow.

Even regular Treasure Hunter will give a good chance at the bow, since it is not a "Rare" item.
RE: hehe
# Jul 26 2004 at 7:40 AM Rating: Decent
Actually, TH1/TH2 affect drop rates of every item.
where does he show
# Mar 12 2004 at 3:18 PM Rating: Decent
does he show on the hill or below?

I killed him 5x today with my lvl 30 thf, netting 5 pairs of light soleas... I'd trade them all for 1 longbow. Respawn time seems to be 1 hour. Does anyone know if you're more likely to get the bow if you kill him with a lower lvl job?
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 25 2004 at 3:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So i was there waiting for it to spawn anpther high level thief all AF ARMOR ws there too. i checked him out japanese commentaary i was like this is gonna be rough well i stood there waiting out of the two times it spawned i beat the *** to the oucnh and got nothing but an ADRENALINE rush but i was happy beacuse my level 25 dragoon was there only to do rank 3 mission while waiting on a party hehe So to all you who complain about **** at least beat them once and it wiill make up for lost time
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 25 2004 at 4:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oh yes man, beatin em feels good, level 30 blm/rdm Jayween got leapin lizzy 3 times in 45 minutes..i dont know why it spawned that quickly, right under the nose of several really high level japanese people including red mages and ranger/wars and a ranger thf..it feels gooooood..
