A friend (rng 46) and I (65 rdm) duoed him, extreme overkill, but no drop. So I came back the next day, soloed him, and got the drop. Extremely easy battle if you know what you are doing. When he uses mighty strikes just chainspell utsusemi (I subbed ninja for the fight, of course).
Funny Encounter

Was helping my friend try to get a Stun scroll lastnight here.. and we saw him pop.. me, Rdm/blm, her, Drg/thf... so i thought, ok, lets try it, worst that happens is i die, and yell at her to flee:) (both lv 50/25) well! i was right:D So, i get a whm to come give me raise (thanks Ixxa, your a Doll), then a 60drg/thf trys to solo it.. (bad ideal on his part, lol, used his flee to get out) So, we add him to me and the other drg.. and go after it! Whm is off doing raises when the drgs attack.. killed it with out to much fear of my death:) Got ALL the drops.. and i personaly got all but the helm! But, i was nice and gave the DRG Mail.. went sold the coin and just bought friend Stun:P much faster:D

Me (a 43 THF) in a party of 42-44's were leveling in Gustav, as parties of that level range do lol. I was pulling and ran across him. I heard about him, but couldn't remember the level, asked if the party wanted him, they said sure thing, so I pulled it. We killed him, but unfortunately a Goblin Reaper had linked and was killing everyone one by one. In the end, I had to SATA off the WHM (My girlfriend was the WHM so she was all for it lol) and killed it, only one NIN made it out as I died hitting Flee lol. Mugged it for 1518gil and he dropped about 1910gil each along with 3 Gold Coins.

I've had this axe in my MH since about lvl 40 and wasn't sure if it was any good. I was in my one and only party in Gustav Tunnel so far, and the party behind us needed help and offered us an alliance. We accepted, beat down our mob and then went and beat down their mob. Our party leader said to lot on everything, so we did and I got this axe, thought nothing of it and put it in my MH. I didn't even realise that we were fighting an NM or that this drop was any good. I'm not taking WAR that high, but I hate to get rid of it. Wish I could give it to one of my LS buddies. It didn't seem hard for 12 level 40's to fight.

Solo'd it today at 51 Beastmaster / 25 White mage

Used 2 leach's and switched them out when they got low on HP. Didnt even notice if it 2 hour'd or not.

Had a DRK and a WAR from my LS with me, (axe was for the war) had the DRK train off a couple gobs near the end so i didnt get links.

All in all it wasnt very hard fight. Got every drop.

For the sake of my Warrior, I camped it 2 times full length. I casted protect 5 times x30min which is 2 hrs and 30 mins about. it spawns 2 times near the pond next to the rock at I-9. He is a lottery pop for Goblin Reaper. So if there are bst around, tell them to help you to pop it ^^, and don't forget to tell them u need the NM. It wasn't that hard for me (73THF/36WHM). 2 or 3 50ish should take it out easily.

THF74 WAR44 BLM37, these 3 are still going up.
NIN44 WHM37 etc, the rest are frozen. NINJA pisses me off everytime i get spell interruption and has nasty death. WHM is just boring and frustrating.

Just killed Heronox today as a 47 BST/WHM. Got all the drops except the lightning crystal. Its really doable as a BST if you are careful. I cleared the room of all the stray goblins before sending EM leeches at it. Don't engage and stay way back. When leech is nearly dead, release and charm another one. Keep blink up and you'll not even take damage! ^^ HP never went below white the whole fight. Felt really, REALLY good after killing him since this was my first NM (seriously!) Good luck on this one!

I just fought this NM for my warrior and hes not even that tough... took about 10mins cause i was too lazy to switch to my wing sword. so i just poked him with my hornetneedle. got every drop (Eisentaenzer, gold beastcoin, gob helm, gob armor and 6000gil). he uses warrior's 2hr but that was no problem cause my stoneskiln took care of that lol.

o and i camped him for 1 hour killing his place holders. he spawns 2 times a day or by killing place holders. well have fun!

it was only me and a 58-60 party in gustav last night, and i was skillin up marksmanship/eva on dc-em gobs/crabs and lettin them take the T's. If i ended with low hp after the fight, i would head up and drain the lower gobs with bloody bolts to get my hp back. The party disbanded and warped out, and i didnt feel like tryin to solo without someone to kill the Ts. I was walkin out after they all warped, and saw goblinsavior was popped. i was wearin mostly eva stuff so he didnt hit me too much and i kept him blinded/paralyzed. i did have this happen though
Goblinsavior Heronox is no longer paralyzed.
Goblinsavior Heronox uses Mighty Strikes.
Goblinsavior Heronox is no longer blinded.
-all 3 in a row like that, and then my utsusemi wore off and he hit me twice for about 350 all together. killed him no problem though and he dropped everything he could, 10k gil, and i mugged for 2.1k. now to get drk/war to 46.

I've had a minor obsession with the NM for a bit, as I want the GA for my war. Camped him a few times, killed once with 67 RNG 65 THF and myself (74 RDM).

Last night I was camping him and hanging around with a few friends who were leveling in Gustav when the 59 RNG in my party says he's up.

I'm in the middle of fighting a goblin reaper and when I finish up I'm at like 200mp and 1000hp and I bind/gravity him while waiting for the RNG to get there. We start the fight and get a link so I sleep 2 it. RNG is yellow HP so I cure4 him...then I see my MP at 0 ... sh*t. Long story short I got him down to 2 pixels of HP, but we wiped. Very embarassing to die at level 74 there.

Got a raise from WHM friend in the area, and another 74 RDM I know stopped by to help. We waited till full HP/MP, buffed up fully and proceeded to extract a little revenge. Since we were being careful the outcome of the fight was never in question. Whupped his butt and go the axe and my HP never dropped under white.

The main point of this post is as a warning: don't underestimate this guy. He's much harder than the surrounding goblins, and IMHO about twice as hard as mysticmaker profblix (who I'ved soloed at least three times with ease). I'd like to try soloing him to see how it'd go, but now that I have my axe there's really no motivation.

I do believe I was in that party of Lvl 40-ish's you're speaking of lol. I was partying with a group at mouth of first room's tunnel at the time. We'd just gotten finished with a Hawker that had linked a pop. We were healing up and the leader spotted the fight ensueing ahead in the room. Next thing I know "Alliance, destroy that NM!" pops up in party window and an alliance is added. We went to work wailing on this bad boy, had taken down all but 3 of us, had just a flash of HP left on it. About this time "Zone" comes called to the WHM that would end up helping to Raise for nearly half an hour later lol. So I whipped out the Manafont. Blink, (had 30hp left myself, knew this would be a one shotter or nothing) Elemental Seal+Water II (friggin' surrounding Leeches! Why oh why could I not use -Aga?!), as I was resetting for Aero II he turned and looked at me. I could feel the tingle down my spine and I knew I'd signed my own death warrant lol. Before Aero II could come out, one hit had my lil' Taru butt in the air and nose in the dirt. But my goodness, this was the best damned fight I'd ever saw so far. I believe if the entire Alliance had been at full go, this would've been a happy ending with a possible GA sitting amidst one of our Inventories lol. To all in that party/alliance, wherever you are, I /salute you and next time, he won't be so lucky ;).
BST solo
# Dec 21 2004 at 1:07 AM Rating: Decent
anyways, my BST partner and I just finished exping off the Gob shepard's pet leeches and he logs. So i head back to Valkurn Dunes and I see this guy on widescan. Unfortunately I had agro on my butt and I just wanted to get them off so I can have a go at the NM, so i zone. After healing, I come back and hes still there so I start charming pets and throwing them at the NM and casting Cure and Blink when needed. About 15-20 minutes and lots of pets later its dead. By the way, I'm lvl48BT/24WHM!!!. I got 140exp, 6k gil, Gob Helm, Gob mail, and a Gold Beastcoin. Signet wore off in middle of fight so no crystal and I didn't get the Axe. /sigh Not that I need it or anything
Hehe, soloed

BLM in my static said that I couldn't solo this, so I slapped on my staff and went to prove him wrong. :P

Most likely would not have been able to do it without my staff, Spirit Taker was a godsend. He hurt me a little bit during his 2 hour, but nothing a few Cures couldn't handle.

Got 6000G, Gold Beastcoin, Goblin Helm, Goblin Armor, and (wait for it) 9 exp. :O

I just solo'd this as 64DRG/32WHM. It was tons of fun. It's a WAR type and used Mighty Strikes. I just used Super Jump and let my wyvern tank for that 30 seconds. Being able to paralyze it was very helpful. I was camping it for a little over 2 hours before it poped. Overall, a pretty easy fight, just watch out for link. I ended the fight with about 130/199 MP. Got the Axe for my WAR, 6k, gold coin the the 2 gob gear items. OH, and it gave me 16 exp.

Back when i was a little lvl46 PLD... me and my pt found this thing, I just HAD to see it... and poke it. Needless to say our WAR went berserk(actually used JA lol) over the axe it dropped. I got aggrod after a good poke in the eye(nearly as big as me.. a S Hume) being hot for my first time over 80 scared me but i kited it while RDM casted gravity... and we raped his ***... i didn't get any gil from him cuz i accidently zoned while kiting lol. He ain't nothing to worry about with a good PT of lvl44-46.

i was levelin with my party in gustav tunnel cause the CN was so crowded we figured wed go there. after bout an hour or so this gob spawns. mind u were only lvl 40-41 n everyone knew n said wed die quick n to avoid it. next thing we know the pullers macro says"pulling goblinsavior heronox b ready!!!". almost all at once the party chat goes OMFG! the puller brings it to us sayin we can take it. the bmage casts escape to get us out. in the meantime i start to tank it since the pally wouldnt(im a dark knight). clearly from the 144 hit i took n the hit i gave it a whoppin 12 dmg i couldnt b done. anyway the spell of escape finally kicks in n we appear in the cave outside. the bmage disbands n leaves n the puller begs us to go back in to kill it cause for some bizarre reason she thought we could kill it. nothin really major in this story just thought id post it up. n much like the bmage i got my level bout 15 min later n i bounced outta that party.
