Lovely shield, Fugly ram...
# Jul 15 2009 at 1:28 PM Rating: Decent
The Shield is wonderful...
The Ram is deadly.
Isn't that how it always works?

But that aside, I have only spotted this thing twice. First time, as a black mage around level 15-16 farming sheep, I ran to the Dem and stayed my but away from it, watched three players die while two stayed on birds and stayed in my line of sight. One person managed to zone it.
Second time? Red Mage level 39 farming sheep for fun while I waited on someone, saw his name fly past my eyes on the Log and started looking for it. 75 RDM/NIN was killing it, half dead so I started curing him. That being said, a 75 RDM/NIN in good gear(he was in RDM AF- had been farming SB's 'little sister' Stray Mary so he probably wasn't prepared for it, don't know) should have no issue with it. I only caught half the fight and was too busy watching his HP bar to bother watching the log to see what it did... didn't think to check afterwards either...

Eh, this is my 2-cents worth. Hope to get some help and get the shield myself, will be very nice when I level up... (44 RDM currently).
only seen it 2 times

Was camping Rampaging Ram for the purple belt quest today and SB popped. I was 75THF/31RNG for widescan. I flee'd to him and claimed, but when I went to grab my keyboard I hit my 360 remote and ejected the disk :(( Finally got back on and somehow no one had claimed him (even though there had been 1 other camper). I was already at 1/2 hp now b/c of the connection lost but re-engaged anyway. When he was able to connect, he hit hard (90-150+). Luckily I had my trusty bloody bolts and just TP'd him with those, and my high evasion skill allowed me to dodge most of his swings. Took about 15 minutes total since I was mostly trying to get my hp back up. But won, no Viking Shield drop (already have one though), but I got what I was after anyway, Rampaging Horn. GL to any campers....it's a great shield especially on my THF/war.
1/1 ^^

LOL @ ejecting your disk and STILL getting the claim! Congrats!

Its sad to say but i got spanked by this thing. Im a 75blm/37whm but i had been teleing for a while and hadn't rested for a while and had just teled someone to dem and was pretty much outa mp and i saw a bunch of people running around down on the ground so i went to see what was going on and he was on me I didnt even have enough mp left to escape so i did a nice thing and pulled him away from the low lvls that were too close. ended up geting killed hp'd came back but it was to late for me to get him a pt had gotten him. so im just waiting to see him again and we'll see who wins next time. Oh and i did go back and raise all the noobs that got killed to he took out a bunch of people lol

You and me both. Last night I decided to take a break from leveling to start working on my leathercraft, and after finishing my third synth of Sheep Leather I started to wonder why the screen was shaking and why I had just taken 352 damage in one shot. 27WAR/13MNK vs Steelfleece? Yeah, not so much...

However, I did get revenge (of a sort) by calling in the LS goonsquad for a hit. 75NIN/THF, 75 WAR/NIN and a 52WHM/(forget her sub at the time) absolutely OWNED him.

Steelfleece popped about 1.5 hours after server reset yesterday. Claimed him today, 26 hours later.
Rampaging Ram, the lesser NM ram, was the last thing to pop before Steelfleece - about 15 minutes earlier. (5 min longer than normal Ram respawn.)
I only mention this because I always thought 'Fleece was a lotto of the lesser NM. Now it seems he can pop in place of ANY ram whenever his window is due.

Finally bumped into this guy after a long time of wanting to kill him, since his brother Bloodtear was the first NM I had ever seen. Now I have Silenced ALL of the famous rams.
Duo'd by 61 NIN and 56 BRD

Was helping a BRD friend of mine farm sheepskins for money, we got bored and decided to camp VE. Start heading to Valkurm, I turn to wait for my friend to catch up, and jumping at my face is a huge ram. I panic and tell my BRD friend to run for it while I tank it and 2HR. He says "Hell no." So we stay. This dude was so easy. I was missing half my gear since we'd just been farming and I was wearing town clothes. Cast Hojo, Kurayami and Jubaku. He got in about three hits before I got my shadows up. After that I didn't take a single point of damage. Thing got pwned by a 61 NIN and a 56 BRD. Awesome good time. Six level 65s... Psh.

I was online two nights again and I became bored quickly with doing tele-porting. So I Tele-ported to Dem to hunt down some Rams, when all of a sudden I see this huge one right in front of me. I see the name and immediately tell my linkshell members, Manni and Darth. They tell me to engage it while they shout for teles. I first reply with a "Hell, no!!!!," Then, I start wondering if I could live just long enough for my linkshell members to get here and take it. I decide to give it a try and begin resting my mp when I notice a lvl 40 nin run up and check me. They begin running in the direction of the great beast and gets one-shotted... lol After witnessing that, I buffed up with RR and all other buffs to help me live longer. I tried a Sleep spell after using my Elemental Seal. My heart began beating as I realized that my spell was resisted with ease. So second thing to do when the odds seem too tough is to Run Away!!! I tried running to my linkshell members when I noticed they got in the zone. I knew for sure that would work until I ended up somehow behind the dam thing. So this is how it feels to be "drawn in" I thought to myself. I tried running again and to no provail. I was drawn in again. I was a Whm56/blm28 at the time and SB was hiting me for 60 a hit. It does use Mighty Strikes like Provoke. I was losing hit points fast. I couldn't keep up with the healing. At some time I 2houred. At some time after that my linkshell friends showed up and tried to take the mob off me, but since I had 2hr'ed, I knew I was gonna die. Thank goodness for RR though; I came back and rested and healed my 2 linkshell members who were there taking the mob. 5 mins later we had a huge group of people watching us as we tried to take the monster down and stay alive. My members jobs were RDM69/BLM34 and MNK62/WAR31. The fight took around 20 minutes and I thought we all were gonna die when it used that HP reducing move. After using that move, we managed to kill the beast. Didn't get the drop, but got horn and a cool title, "The Hornsplitter" Everyone was so shocked that 2 DDs and a whm <me> were able to kill the HNM. My linkshell members were all pumped as they were bragging about killing it. I asked them to help me kill the Yagudo High Priest for Raise 2 scroll. They disconnected out of the blue. >< So I tried my luck in BCNM50. Tribes and Tribulations, and to my luck I picked it!!!! The dam mimic. I was so embarrassed at the end reading, Jarred was defeated by the Medium Box. >< Oh well maybe next time.

I was 71drk/1 rng camping Lambering Lumbert for my buddy, he needed it for his monk and i was controlling his character as well sine he was at work. So after getting RR I tele Holla and get to where the rams spawn. Throw up widescan and he is on it. I have not seen him or the other ever since I came from Beta so Im like man Imma try to take him even with gimped sub. Well the fight was long and I took steamed crab for ded def since drks are not natural tanks. The little info alla gives is corret. He spams might strikes like its provoke. Well got shield w/o TH.

Later that night:

Im in Konschatat farming sheep skin and occasionlly killing rams to pop RR again for another friend. Im playing on pc so names I cant see good unless i scroll over them. I see a ram wiht a long name so i naturally assume its RR. Scroll over and its steelface. Im like OMG I fought bloodtear and im going to fight steelfleece in the same day. Search area and find a level 70 whm/rdm, invite and notice whm has only 200+ mp. So while trying to heal a low level thf aggros it being noisey and getting to close to it lol. He tried to flee but died. So I took over with whm at 300+ hp and man was the fight easier a 71 drk/35 thf. Sucks with TH I dont get drop but w/o it I do. Shield sells for 800k so at least I made that today. Woot for me lol
Above level 70? A pushover.

Fought him last night with a bunch of people from my LS. Was hitting me for 40-ish damage per hit (when he hit me) and I was able to get shadows up without issue between hits.

Got the horn but no shield. :x

RDM Solo
# Jul 28 2006 at 4:08 PM Rating: Decent
Saw Steelfleece while chocoboing to bastok so I warped back and switched to 66RDM/33BLM. I knew I stood no chance meleeing it, so I Bound and casted Bio 2 and Poison 2, running away any time I was drawn in. Normal hits for 50, Crits for 100, Beserk added about 50 to each of those numbers. Kept up stoneskin and kited it around while binding. If bind wore too soon I would cast Gravity. I managed to take off 20% of its HP but I called my friend to come kill it. 75WAR/NIN took it down easy, basicly solo.

Solo'ed it, totally easy, hit me twice. Nin70/Rng35. Slugshot works wonders. No drop, totally weak :(

# Jun 08 2006 at 5:24 AM Rating: Decent
About what level can a RDM/NIN take this thing down? It killed me when I was about lvl 15, so I wanna get some payback. RDM is 61, and my NIN is 30.
# Dec 22 2006 at 5:55 PM Rating: Decent
I killed Bloodtear today as a taru lvl 66RDM/20RNG and it was fairly easy. I'm sure you could solo this thing somewhere between 60-65 rdm.

Also this things lvl is posted incorrectly. It's lvl 55-56ish, just like Bloodtear Baldurf which is also posted incorrectly.

You would have to DoT it to death. Keep using Bind on it (Gravity won't work after a while), Bio II, and Poison II. Keep Stoneskin, Phalanx, and the occasional Blink, and Refresh. Try to save your mp so you can always make it to your next convert.

Eva gear helps a lot. I wish I had some of my party int gear on me when I fought him but meh...not completely necessary.
Good luck!

Maybe 70+ as RDM/NIN or I saw a 75RDM/WHM solo him and never got below 90% HP but he used Joyeuse and Genbus Shield... But at 61, you wont stand a chance..
just kill it
# Jun 04 2006 at 12:51 PM Rating: Decent
Actually farming for quest item but happen to pop it anyway. Worst i didn't know it's an HNM thought just an NM lol.Anyway killed it as a 71bst/whm, no real danger but post as a challenge. NO viking shiled for me - -" good luck
# May 31 2006 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
I was farming rams yesterday as NIN74/RNG37 when I saw this guy on Widescan on the South Side of the Crag... I ran to it and used my chakram to claim it since I had no provoke. I assume there was no competetion that day so I was happy.
I soloed it to 7% and got my 75 Thf friend with Thief's knife and let him get kill but no drop =(
Going to camp him today and see if I get the shield.. Currently its going for about 2-2.8 on the Diabolos server which isnt bad of a drop for a 10 min kill.. He does spam Mighty Strikes alot and did its HP down once and petrify atk but I resisted both. So in the end hes pretty easy.. never hit me once and missed about 15 times in a row. w00t for 273 + 57 evasion =)

steelfleece=too weak of course iam a 75 bst but other then that i got him 3 days in a row and he always spawned 4 hrs late from last TOD so that makes him a 24-28hr spawn in my opinion. iam itching for a viking shield to use on my thf and bst...no drop yet but i will get it eventually..
