I camped these 3 all day (barricader, wallbreacher, and thousandarm). I got a total of 6 spawns so far from each and got 6 obelisks, which seems to be a 100% drop... but no shield, no strikes, and no belt. These items aren't even worth that much. Obviously my luck sux or the drop rate randomizer has it out for me.

Just reactivated my character recently. Used to kill these 2 all the time and get nothing. Checked the Ghelsba area and saw it was empty so I ran in, killed these 2, and what do ya know? nothing again lol. Run out and to the left, kill Thousandarm and get a Plate Belt. Take the trip to the Outpost and kill the Panzer but the NM doesnt come out afterward. So I just go back to Barricader and Wallbreacher and wait. 1st one pops about an hour 10 mins after i killed them before... kill him quick and finally get a Lantern Shield! Never kept up with the exact numbers but I mustve been like 0/20 if not more. In a good mood on my way out, I head to Yughott Grotto real quick and there's Ashmaker standing around waiting to die. Drop him and get the Hermit's Wand. All in all a pretty good run if I get any of it to sell. I'm Bloodfeast on the Phoenix server if you're in need of the shield and would like to make a deal.

hmm still looks n00bish to me. Plus you can't get any newer than "on the 360 version" :P
If the mob only spawns in 1 place and has a special name.. it is NM

they pretty much are in every aspect besides there being able to be checked as not "impossible to guage" every other aspect: long respawn time, above average items, that u cant craft, and have horrile drop rates (for me at least) and there names exist no where else in the game, so they might as well be classified as "NM's"
i HATE these guys -.-
# Jul 07 2006 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent

I camped this guy last night. I got the shield on the second kill. I went afk for awhile, so I figured I'd wait till the next spawn, nothing.
1/3 shield, 0/3 H2H

I was a 20PLD/10WAR.
# Jun 05 2006 at 8:02 PM Rating: Decent
why all the talk of such bad rate on these guy
Im 4/25 on the shield and 3/25 on the h2h and I don't have TH2 but almost always fight them with TH1 and both are up to 70k or more on Pandy last I checked
Lantern Sheild

1/87 on these two machines together. 0/12 with treasure hunter. Someone said try killing them with a job around the lvl they are, so i came back as another job and gonna try again. Need the shield for an equip and none in ah ><
spawn time, drops and locations.
# Dec 17 2005 at 4:04 AM Rating: Decent
To answer a couple of questions.

1. They spawn a little over every hour.

2. My drop luck 0/7 on both. A few fire crystals that's about it. (20RDM/10BLM)

3. Locatec in the tunnels. When you enter Ghelsba, go to the right and go up the hill. Make another right and go down the next hill over the wooden bridge and back up. Go around the right of the fence and you'll see a tunnel straight in front of you. Go through the tunnel. On your map you should be heading east. You'll exit the tunnel onto a ramp. Head left and down the ramp which will lead you into another tunnel. At the end of this tunnel is where they pop. There are two bats inside the tunnel. There's only one way in and one way out. Hope this helps.
Drop Rate

I dropped in on him the other day. Won the pop, got the shield. 1/1. Course I also Lotted something at 917 and dice rolled a 998 that day too.... musta been a lucky day for me :)

i have camped these 2 (what i thought were nm's) orcish barricader and orcish wallbreacher, numerous times and i have yet to see a drop....they must be extremely rare?
RE: drop.....
# Dec 08 2005 at 1:45 PM Rating: Decent
The spawn time for these two is about 1 hour i dont camp them but everytime i am in Sandy i run biu and normally they are there so i kill them and go on my merry way..... as for the drops they are pretty rare drops... Wallbreatcher who drops the Strike Bagks is the more common drop.. Barricader on the other had drops the Lantern Shield (+5 attack) is alot rarer the sheild currently runs about 120k on the Titan server and i am 12/20 on the shield and 16/22 on the bagks

I have a far less interesting theory on these guys. On the mob list these don't come up as NMs, so maby they are just regular mobs (but one of a kind), and they just spawn after a certain amount of time after their last death. I killed them both once (no drop), waited half an hour (no pop) got bored and left. Came back an hour later and they were both back. Killed them both again (no drop).
Possible triggers
# Oct 18 2005 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, ive camped these guys a few times and have come up with a theory of possible triggers. On the ramp that leads back to the main part of Ghelsba, an orc normaly spawns there. Its either a Fodder, Grappler, or Mezmeriser. If you kill htese guys, <all three> then the Mobs seem to spawn. I dunno if this is just a coincidence with the timer or what but it seems to have worked for me. Im currently 0/20 for both of them [/sigh]

Order of appearance:
Orc Fodder>>Grappler>>Grappler = Barricader
Orc Grappler>>Mesmerizer>>mesmerizer = Wallbreacher

Like i said, this is just a theory of mine, Ill need to do some more testing with it.

The bats have nothing to do with this mob as I have seen it pop a dozen diffret times for me and never once thought about killing the stupid bats in the tunnle

Another side note, Kujata server has a THF/RNG botting this. walked up and saw 4 in this bazaar for 100k a piece. so everytime i camp it now, i just train a bunch of orcs in, maybe i can mess him up a bit. i just wait till pop, use Circle Blade, and find the Machine i'm looking for. still, now 1/36 on baghnakhs, and 0/33 on shield.
POP damn it!
