For anyone interested a 5th beetle will appear in either camp when Percival ph is up. I don't the exact ph for it but the group of beetles are so close together that its not really an issue.

Went out to camp this NM, Me as 56 WHM/BLM, and a friends as 75 RDM/BLM. WE used the PH method and ended up waiting the full 4 hrs for the spawn time. Ugh.

BUT I'm 1/1
without a /THF too ;o
Pretty easy

Went looking for the NM with a party of 3. One member camped J-5 while myself and the other camped L-7. Popped in L-7 after killing all beetles in J-5, THEN, popped in J-5 not even 5 minutes later. Dropped Neckchopper both times.

Was hunting this guy while farming beetle jaws. First time I found him he was on the line between K-7 and L-7, and I started the fight pretty low (350/797 hp as a 35 galka war/mnk). I had to two hour at the end to beat him. He only dropped a beetle jaw. The second time I found him was about an hour and 45 minutes from the first time (RL time) and again found him at the line between K-7 and L-7. This time I started the fight with somewhere around 560 hp and was able to beat him with about 300 hp remaining. He dropped a beetle jaw, a beetle shell, and the Neckchopper. The beetle jaw also completed my stack of jaws :D

So I am hunting this nm with a friend checking the other spot. I figure, well we can't miss him or lose a claim, theres no one else there. So he pops after an hour at the north camp, and I take him down alone. 37PLD/19WAR and my friends a 36THF/18NIN. I flash, sentinel, shield bash, do it all. No drops. Ok, try again. A half hour later, he spawns at the West camp, and we duo him in less then 2 minutes. No GA... We stayed there for 4 more hours and no pop, so as far as I'm concerned, it's a completely random pop time and the drop rate is not too fair.
Easy drops for me

Good farming for me. 5/9 so far.

Just popped it at the northern spawn area after clearing beetles for 2.5h. Unfortunately, only a beetle jaw dropped.


I will try again in the future.

Soloable by 23BST/WHM, 1/1 drop ^^; Great if you're exping in the area, just familiar a tough Tiger to start, then use whatever you can find to finish it off.

Took my lvl 35 THF/17 MNK to the forest to kill Panzer last night. Was not sure if I was a high enough lvl to do it but I thought what the hell might as well try - I really wanted the Neckchopper to lvl WAR. OBTW, my character is Elvan and I was wearing the lvl 30 Noct gear, (Doublet, Gaiters, Beret & Brais - no Gloves). I had on a lvl 24 Tiger Stole, lvl 27 Force Belt, (2) lvl 20 Shield Earrings, a lvl 28 Wolf Mantel and a Sandy Ring. The weapon I used is a lvl 25 Windurstian Knife. Anyway, I was keeping the beetles cleared out in the two spawn points and went back to the North one after fully healing up and low and behold there was Panzer sitting on the rock outcropping soon as you come into the North spawn point. Well I had only been able to have 120 TP built up after healing and used my SA ability. I went up behind him and used my the SA but was not able to combine it with my Viperbite Weapon Skill. Still I did about 163 points of damage. I immediately used my 2hr and went and used the Shadowstitch WS. When 2hr wore off I used the MNK dodge ability and had my Flee ablitiy ready just in case I needed to escape. I was amazed at how often he missed me during the fight even after my 2hr Perfect Dodge and standard Dodge abilities wore off. I was able to get off a total of (4) Shadowstich WS during the fight and in the end I took him down!!! I had 77 HP left and was shaking in my boots at the end of the fight. That beetle has allot of HP and good defense and if I had not been an experienced player I might have lost that fight. Anyway, hope this helps anybody wanting to know what level can defeat him. It says that he is a lvl 25 - 26 NM. That's BS, I was barely able to defeat him. Also, I was able to get the Neckchopper and a Beetle Jaw - woo hoo!! Anyway, good hunting.
GA Skill and GIl

Not too bad

A friend and I camped percy one on each spawn killing the beetles as they pop. First time he popped was on my side and I got no drop. We camped again and it popped on my friends side this time... no drop. The third time it popped on my side again and we got the drop. So 1/3 on him, each camp took no longer than an hour and a half each.

Neckchoppers sell for about 150k on Kujata. I HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on one of these if your a WAR cause i used it until level 30!
Two pops in a row

This is my messed up story:
I'm a lvl 40 war/nin with no gil. Went to camp it to equiq new gear.
Cleared L-6 spawn point, then cleared J-5 spawn point.
Walked back to L-6 (by the weapons) and there it was! Killed it
and no drop.
Then headed back to J-5 right away cause my npc was out so
wanted to farm some beetle jaws. And there it was AGAIN!
Used mighty strikes (cause I wanted revenge!) Sturmwinded the life
out of it it dropped!! Woot, now can afford new gear.

Just lettin you know this NM is kinda craze!
It was full moon, darksday and 98% both times it died.

Yesterday I was helping a friend get his BLU spells at carpenter's and camping orctrap sorta. Well I was killing and orctrap spawns, i claim and kill, only belt, and my friend gets there, and we go to try and get him soporific and claw cyclone(which sabertooth tigers done use), but anyways, we try for a whie and no soporific and we decide to leave, meh PP spawns right around the corner. I run over there and then I see him sitting there. I throw Sneak attack up (i was WAR64/THF25) and I attack, I win, no drop. So im like meh, imma go check the north spot. heard he can spawn up there cause they are different places. Well he's not there and I kill the 4 beetles up there, and I go afk. I come back and kill the beetles 1 by 1, and there he is again. So I claim, kill, no drop. That proves that each area has its own NM spawn, and thats how i got both in 10 mins, but now im 1/3 on it ; ; also, I got Dune Widow earlier, and i got no drop, 1/6 on that now :X
where is he?
# Nov 17 2006 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
camped him for 2+ hours today with no spawn, i kept wondering if i was missing his spawn cz he couldve been down at the other camp while i was killing potential PH's in the other and if he was despawning while i was killing beetles at another camp
Ah well
# Aug 30 2006 at 3:42 AM Rating: Decent
Kept killing the bugs at north and south spawn points, he eventually appeared at the south.

Noticed his health wasn't going down as quickly as the other beetles =P This is as a 30Monk/War. Whipped out hundred fists, needless to say he took that like a trooper and still had quarter health, luckily berserk-boost-combo took him down =D

No drop =(

He lives up to the panzer part of his name anyways.
Ah well

Waited about an hour for him to spawn. Killed him and didn't get drop. T_T
# Oct 31 2006 at 6:24 PM Rating: Decent
I've 0 for 4 the last two evenings spending under 2 hours camping him. He seems to spawn pretty quick w/ just killing the PHs. Killing the Thunder Elementals for their lightning crystals in between to spawns helps make some gil and gives you something to do.
easy >.> <.<
# Aug 25 2006 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent
this NM was easy as a lvl 61 drg and the drop rate is high as hell lol a good 80k on laksmhi 80 more thousand to my pocket ^.^ 1/1

Been camping this thing alot lately for some quick gil, 100-150k on Kujata.
He respawns every about 25-40 minutes for me, SAM75/THF37 killing PH's at both spawns, just walk between each and kill them, Panzer usually pops if im the only one there in about 20 minutes the first time, 30-40 the second time.
3/6 on him so far.
# Aug 13 2006 at 10:24 PM Rating: Decent
Just got this guy for the first time, took about 35 minutes.
Started at the northern camp and he popped after 4 or 5 kills
in the southern camp. Sadly no Neckchopper. Dropped one of
everything else though so i'm 0/1 thus far. Better luck next time!
# Jul 18 2006 at 11:06 PM Rating: Decent
I decided I needed some money so I went ahead and started killing stag beetles in Jugner hoping to get him to pop. It took 30 minutes for him to finally pop. had my NPC out and Im a samurai 36/monk 18 threw on dodge, third eye'd and just hammered him with WS's took me down to 88...forgot to rest up before so I had 240ish to start with. all I got was a beetle jaw soooo 0/1 ^.^
sub thf only way to go!

Been farming Beetle Jaws for Bonecraft and came across him, easy fight 49drg/20thf only hit me once or twice, got drop, back to Jeuno, AH for 130k, back farming Beetle Jaws and a few hours later pops up again, another kill, another drop, another 130k in my pocket ^^
2/2 so far, and out of beetle jaws so I'm heading back there soon ^^

*NOTE* both times he popped near the spores area where the Boggarts(sp?) are too. (L-6/7)

Good luck ^^

Killed this guy tonight. I was killing Stag Beetles near the exit to Batilla Downs for experience points as a 26DRG/13WAR, he popped within about 45 min. I had eaten a meat mithkabob earlier. I had to spirit and beat him with realtively no problem. I was hitting for around 50, don't remeber what he was hitting for. He does have high defense. Sadely only dropped a beetle jaw, but gave 172 exp points. I will be back for the axe. Have fun.
