Alright, so I was in PT in Gustav Tunnel, we were doin' great. Everyone was about to have to leave, and wanted to use their 2hrs, and I was out pulling, and say this...

I asked them if they wanted it, and they said "NO" at first, but then they decided to give it a shot, if everyone used 2hrs.

PT consisted of me(THF), a PLD, a WHM, a BRD, a MNK and a SAM... we were doin' great until the PLD dropped... I was in the process of tricking off the MNK when it happened, with the plan that the PLD would voke after, but PLD dropped and trick went off... MNK got slaughtered... so we zoned.

PT was 42-43, and we got it VERY close. I managed to mug 1k off of it, though steal failed. Oh well... another day, another try.
I hate this gob...

spawn time

What is the spawn time for this goblin?
# May 02 2004 at 2:57 AM Rating: Decent
first encountered this guy levelling in a 42-43 pt... got him down to 40% when he mighty strikes'd then we had to escape. came back tonight with a 73pld and 57rng [me] and we beat him. got 4500 gil, helm, mail, and a gold beastcoin ; ;
took about 2 hours for us to make him pop, and was still a fun fight despite not getting the axe.

Saw him last night with PT in tunnels. Puller says "NM!!! I think we can take it". Before anyone can say what is it? We see INCOMING <call3> so its coming to the camp and I'm thinking "oh well, its just a gob we can take it just like the others." WRONG-O everything is going fine until he charges up a bomb and BANG everyone is in trouble lol. Full Pt of 40-43's by the way. whm goes down with one hit after a curaga >< PLD uses Invincible so we all knew he was next. So I (MNK) use Hundred Fists. All the while the rest of the party is using all they've got. I barely scratched him with my 2hr. Everyone is freaking out telling the BLM to escape us. We get his HP to half. Mighty strikes! Invincible wears off. PLD dies.... then he tosses a bomb for good measure. everyone but me has HP in the double digits. I'm at about 103. BLM finishes casting and we're outside. PLD and WHM are eating dirt and Heronox laughs at us and goes about his business. FU Heronox i'm gonna get my revenge.....

Saw him again early this morning. Wanted to get my revenge....badly. Did it with a slightly higher party than last time. History repeated itself PLD used invincible and I used Hundred Fists. Heronox went INSANE and eventually killed PLD while laughing at me as I continuously hit him about 15 or so times. After he's done with him he turns to me and I'm getting hit for 120 or so each time. BLM casts exit, right before it executes he kills me. 2 dead everyone else outside appologizing. At a decent lvl I'm sure he's cake. that's it for me never again.

0/2 vs. Heronox ><

This was great because when i was lvl 40 my party came across this NM so we thought what the heck even after my LS warned me not to engage alone so we got 2 other parties are lvl they were both JP players and really nice and we tore this thing up and i made a movie of it. the movie is in 15 second clips and i am working on putting it together will let you know when i get it together. Oh and we got alot of stuff for the drop including, Goblin Mail, Goblin Mask, 2 lightning Crystals, and some other stuff i think either gold or mythril beastcoins, and we each got 506gil and 58exp. for the fight.

this NM is a warrior, he will use mighty strikes when you get his health down to half. I figured this out the hard way when my party (42-43) were cruizing through the battle until it did 3 crits to pally for 150dmg each. So... we escaped like cowards :) We did go back and raise him though.
Also since he is lvl 55-59, he gets all the abilities a PC warrior would have. (ie 2hour, double attack, warcry, etc)
And since the Eisentanzer is RARE/EX--according to this site--dont risk dying unless you can use it.

The orcs in Ghelsba use "Warcry" at level 5 or so. And the 2hr is availible to level 1 Player/Characters. Umm.. and I'm pretty sure lots of Mobs have double attack before Level 25 also. :)
# Aug 03 2004 at 5:26 AM Rating: Default
yea, beastmen get all sorts of crazy powers...like the ability to take control of PCs when you do an EXP Force.

So, you guys think it would be possible or a single pt of 47-48s to kill this beast?

We killed it with party of 6, 41<43. Nin/War, Drg/Thf, Drk/War, Rdm/Whm, Brd/Whm and Whm/Smn. With blink tank it was pretty easy, mages didn't even run out of MP but never the less took 8-10 minutes to kill.

Yes it agros.
Yes it links.
Like all goblins it is sight based.

It is killable at normal levels with an alliance.

Tonight, my party and one other (12 members level 41-43) took him out. No deaths. Fairly close though. He did about 4 goblin bombs in a row at the end.


Eisentaenzer x1
Gold Beastcoin x1
Goblin Helmet x1
Goblin Armor x1
Lightning Crystal x1
751 gil per member (9012 gil total)

I just soloed this as a 47/23 BST/WHM. I got 103 EXP, 6000 gil, a goblin helm, a suit of goblin mail, and a gold beastcoin.
RE: Meh
# Feb 27 2004 at 9:43 PM Rating: Default
You couldn't have soloed it face to face right? You did use beasts to do your work right? Cuz if you didn't, according to its lvl, and the normal strength of an NM, it'd kill you so badly....

# Mar 21 2004 at 12:57 PM Rating: Decent
After i saw his post on here, i asked him... He told me he threw everything from the zone at it ot beat it...kinda like what beastmasters do to kill aquarias.
# Feb 20 2004 at 5:25 PM Rating: Default
Wow! Just killed it. It was harrassing my party and another (we were all lvl 42ish) so we just allied up and went at it. Waited at the zone for puller and it all went to chaos. Took 1/4 of it's HP and I was thinking wow this isnt so bad then people started dropping like flys. Took everything we had to finish it and only ended up with 4 dead ppl.

In the end we got a whole set of goblin armor, gold beastcoin, and that eisenhanzer.

smash and grab
# Feb 12 2004 at 3:32 AM Rating: Default
i saw him today, a lvl 45-50 or so bst managed to beat it my charming every damn monster in the zone and throwing it at the NM. took about 20 mins but he did it.

before the bst came i kept going into the tunnel to mug it and flee away. i made over 1k from each mug and made 5k altogether. not bad, free money and it was a good way to kill time while waiting for a pt :)
Axe drop
# Feb 11 2004 at 5:20 PM Rating: Default
It's a WAR/DRK only axe. not PLD.
# Feb 10 2004 at 7:14 PM Rating: Default
he drops a bow worth a cool mil or so, dont know the name offhand but i'd know it if i saw it. its ranger only, of course
RE: drop
# Feb 22 2004 at 10:54 PM Rating: Default
I think the bow you are thinking of is Othinus' Bow. But it doesnt drop off this NM, it drops off another NM Goblin in Gustav named Wyvernpoacher Drachlox.
# Jan 28 2004 at 1:51 AM Rating: Default
drops war/pal axe dmg56 dex2 chr3 rare/ex estinzer..or something like that. also got gold beastcoin, goblin armor and helmet. he is tough, if youre xping in tunnels at 40ish dont try, even with a full group.
Killed it finally..
# Jan 27 2004 at 5:07 PM Rating: Default
dropped 700 gil for everyone in party, and a Gold Beastcoin '~'
Kill this thing!
# Jan 27 2004 at 4:00 PM Rating: Default
Yeah...I tried fighting this fool with 2 of my friends. 51WHM/17BLM 51PLD/25WAR and a 53DRG/26THF. He wiped the floor with us, fast. We got him halfway down then he started getting a lot of criticals and double attacks. He was hitting for 70-100 then criticals for 140+ on our PLD with 400+DEF. Let me know if anyone kills this thing.
RE: Kill this thing!
# Feb 11 2004 at 5:22 PM Rating: Default
That is the NM's 2hr skill. Harder NM's have 2hr's that are the equivilant of the player's characters of the same class. this Gob's a Warrior type... his 2hr would be Mighty Strikes. 30 seconds of 100% critical hits. Your PLD might as well have been wearing no armor. It makes no difference for that 30 seconds.
absorb dex?
# Jan 27 2004 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
It was my guess that since this tunnel drops the absord scrolls like vit, agil and so on that this is the nm that drops the absord dex which goes for 200k on seraph.

Just my thoughts on it. I mugged 908 off it. But our pt was too scared to fight it. We were onyl lvl 44 at the time.
RE: absorb dex?
# Feb 04 2004 at 11:40 AM Rating: Default
The reapers drop vit, agil, and int. However, I remember reading that a demon nm, that you need a level 60 or so party to fight, is what drops absorb dex.
RE: absorb dex?
# Feb 13 2004 at 2:01 PM Rating: Default
Absorb Dex is a BCNM drop ^^
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 26 2004 at 11:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol maybe they are japanese...but i was stealing mythril beast coins from there 2...and this foo popped up ...252 damage one hit! crazy....and im a lvl 38THF/19SAM...iono...that thing is monstreous...oh and i came back trying to steal from it 5 times just to make sure it doesnt drop anything ... and it doesnt...i did train it to people tho....funny...they ran out and started throwing angry emodes on me :-( i wonder why ~.^

was hunting in gustav tunnel last night.
this sucker kept aggroing and messing up the 2 parties in the tunnel. dunno how they could miss the "no aggro"
RE: aggroes
# Jul 07 2004 at 11:40 PM Rating: Decent
A while back when me and my linkshell were leveling here some group leveling zoned him. some thfs mugged him and got about 800-1000 gil. And yes he does aggro, he hit me for about 200-300 dmg at around 40.
