Historical Information

In Christian demonology, Ose is a demon with the rank of Great President of Hell. Said to appear in a leopard form, he could transform into a human form if he wanted.

He is also capable of inflicing an unparalleled insanity upon whoever his conjurer orders him to.

So So Tired -.-!

God damn I am so sick of the Labyrinth of Onzozo, Ose, Soulstealer Skullnix, and SE. come on god dam it. Both NM's drop RE/EX items. Non-AH sell'able, can't make any profit off of'em, only desirable to the person camping to USE ingame to.... I don't know, maybe make the came a lil more enjoyable???

75BST/WHM. I have camped these NM's every day for the last week now. Don’t stay down there the whole time.... Kill one NM, then the other, warp out, and come back 3-6 hours later. I have killed Soulstealer 13 times now and Ose 10.

I F’en hate your stinking drop rate system SE and now you wana make a new game for us to play >.<?!?!?

Yeah right!
3rd times the charm!

woot just got my jerkin drop today! i was 1/3 on him!

Took Ose down as 75Bst/37Nin! i have tried him as /whm before but i would advise going /nin purely for the fact that this guy loves to paralyze your pets makeing it hard to not get hate! i was still getting hate with my full -enmity gear! So i did die 3 times.... 2 deaths were due to misscharms... if "tame" fails even with 3 shadows up your gunna die wih a Torma and Ose beating on you!
the 3rd time i had Ose down to 5% got excited started saying things like..." wish me luck".. in my linkshell and of course being the noob i am wasnt looking where i was running until i see at the bottom of my screen... The Goblin Alchemist starts casting Holy on Anfos!!! >.< doh

lucky for me i was the only one camping him and was able to re-raise and take him down for the win!!!

p.s im not looking for excuses but it was lightnings day when i died and the Tormas are based on lightning which could explain my misscharms!
And when i did kill Ose it was Lightsday! ^^
Wasn't even looking for it..

So I was here last night farming for my thief testimony. I'm a 70 thf/nin and my cousin is a 75blm/whm, and we just happened to meet a 75 thf/nin that there farming a coffer. I asked him if he could help me get my test from the Goblin Bandits. While we were doing that we noticed that a 75 smn/whm was carby kiting Ose. We didn't think too much of it.

As we were looking for more Bandits, a friend coming to help us noticed that Ose was unclaimed w/ only 8% left. He tried to kill it but it killed him, and we tried to get to it before it regened to full health.

By the time we got there he had already full health, so me, my cousin and the 75thf/nin decided to take it on. The fight was tough w/ a couple of close calls, but we managed to kill it using manafont.

Boom! AJ drops and by this time, the smn had brought 6 other people watching us kill it. They were fuming, but its not my fault they couldn't handle it.

I'm now a thf w/ an assault jerkin, and I wasn't even looking for it!!!!

I'm now 1/1 on this.

Will have the ability to re-pop about an hour later. It's usually about 2-3 hour range but I've seen a few pops go 6+ hours.....

Babyrazor Shiva 75Bst/nin,70 npc healerw/GK, CC crab, i'm solo 0/18 on this, place holders are easy to spot if you do a few fights, take some zeta foods for your pet and some acc+ foods for yourself. my last fight was the 76 version..i forgot pet food and acc+ food, was on my 3rd CC crab and my npc used "blessed radiance" sacrificing herself to save my butt. killed Ose with 306 hp left. i use cc crab exclusively for "snarl" i had alot of missed axe hits on the 76 version..hence my bringing acc+ foods in the future. the poor drop rate is probably why i hardly see anyone on Shiva camping this.

0/10 on the Assault Jerkin. I have killed this cat with my Soothing Healer NPC with no problem. Of the ten kills, I have never seen a Coeurl whisker, hide, or meat drop from Ose. All I have gotten was Ose whiskers, and occasionally Lightning crystals, and 6k gil each time.

Since the experience points changed to DC and below, I have gotten 97, 100, and 130 experience points from killing Ose without factoring in the NPC's penalty deduction. So his level range is 74-76. I find that fighting the lvl 76 Ose is so much harder than the 75 and 74 versions. This is probably due to the bonus defense and evasion effects Signet has on you when you fight EM and lower mobs. The level 76 version hits very accurate, and is so much more evasive not to mention having more defense and HP. It's quite noticeable.

I guess SE just wants people to play more (and hence fund them futher) by not allowing the good treasure of a NM to drop at a decent rate and therefore force you to try over and over. Heck, I was 1/32 on Leaping Lizzy as a 46THF when they made his boots rare/ex. I just hope the jerkin doesn't end up this way too. I feel sorry too for those who have killed him over a dozen times with no drop.

Drop rate is rumoured to be about 20%
Seems very iffy.

Going to try again~

For the record, he ALWAYS spawns up North, near the middle of the tunnels, around that area.

A drop rate of 20% doesn't necessarily mean 1 in 5 Ose spawns is going to drop it. Technically, even with a 99% drop rate, there's still that 1% chance that you could fight him 100 times with no drop.

Soloing as Red Mage

First of all, the information from Turnerbrown is very accurate and helpful to those soloing and without widescan. Entering the room, you can find the group that has the extra torama. I kill every one in that section, marking the times. At the 16 minute mark when they repop, I take note of where they are. If one of the repops occurs in a different section than it's previous location, then you have your PH. In general, you'll start knowing it's one of two or three, and by marking times and watching repops, you can isolate the PH.

This helps tremendously when soloing, as I don't have the time to kill all of the toramas at once. I want to be able to kill the PH as quickly and often as possible. As far as soloing him, I went as 75 RDM/NIN using the sleep-nuke method. The main reason I used /NIN was that the enparalyze effect from Ose if very annoying. Rather than bring meds, I just nuked once and slept over and over, reapplying Utsusemi every time. This kill is easy and very boring, but I'll take boring over being paralyzed and dead any time. Ose is very easily slept (never resisted me once).
Soloing as BST
# Sep 27 2008 at 12:15 AM Rating: Decent
i'm 0/6 on this NM. Soloing as BST is not that hard but better prepare your CHR gear because misscharm + paralyze = [Death] [You can have this.]

1/3 for assault jerkin

just got mine last night. got my ls to help me out, party setup was drg70(me), pld75, whm66, blm75, mnk75. we cleared the room of toramas for 1hr 40min until it popped. very easy fight with our party. the other 2 camps took 1hr 10min to pop, and at least 30min for the other(i arrived late to a party already camping). twice it popped on the fish bones spine, and once on the round pedestal rock at the north end of the room.

Blu solo
# Jan 24 2008 at 6:03 PM Rating: Decent
anyone know if a 75 blu/nin with silena potions might stand a chance solo? Just interested i know a rdm and bst can solo but i was wondering if anyone knows if its possible for blu, blm, or thf. Ive fought it a bunch of times with thf as a TH3 ***** and i dont see my thf taking it solo. Blm maybe sleep nuke sleep but that seems sketchy too as i know it has a fair bit of HP. Anyway if someone has done it or thinks they know how they can do it im up for advice. Looking to give it a shot tomorrow morning ill post my death... i mean results lol.

I've run into a lot of problems when trying to find people to willingly (I hate forcing people to do things that they really don't want to do) camp this cat with me. If anyone else needs an Assault Jerkin on Midgardsormr, maybe we can work something out ^^;

Drop Feiya a tell in game, thank you!

1/1 on this sucker. Friends and I have been camping NMs for each other for fun (out of boredom). It was my turn to pick one. :) Ran down to the Ose room. An /anon and afk 75 NIN was in the tunnel leading to the room as well as a party of 6 poorly geared /anon /unlinkshelled melee job Mithras EXPing. (HmmmMMmmm...)

Had my girlfriend 75 PLD, my bud 75 BLM and I 75 RDM and we just started offing the Toramas. They were DC to me; we killed all of them clearing the room of them. Offed a few gobs while waiting for the repops.

After our 2nd or 3rd repop kill, the next one was Ose! He popped on the other side of the room. Ran over into Dia range and fired off, GF provoked right behind me. Ran it back to our tunnel and started working on him.

This sucker has A LOT of HP. BLM friend landed 2 unresisted Burst 2's and 1 Freeze 2 and it was still kicking. He wasn't hitting very hard on the PLD; I kept Phalanx 2 on her (merited 2 points into it). She kept hate while I debuffed and cured status and the BLM nuked. BLM ended up Manafonting because he was tired of waiting for MP to regen, Thunder 4 and Thundaga 3 ended it.

Assault Jerkin dropped as well as 2000g and Ose Whisker. Now my RDM has some shiny (Or leathery?) new Melee gear to add to his ******** ^^

pop clamed

SE should realy make this and all NM`s pop like Despot. Clamed to the one that killed the place holder. I cant tell you how meny times ive popped Ose just to have him stolen by ppl just standing invised by the Bones. I`m so tired of popping Ose for the Leechers.
Im camping as Bst and often has 1 or 2 partys just following me around letting me and my friends do all the "dirty work".
And leaving without popping him just becouse there are 2 other party`s there makes the tripp there a waste of time aswell has having him stolen

Edit: Im not totally sure on of the Despot clame works. I can se a problem if Ose would come running after an exp party just cuz they happened to kill the PH. But it would be nice if it popped red then go yellow after a while if you deside not to engage in a fight

# Oct 01 2007 at 9:51 AM Rating: Decent
It works similar to how Olla/Bomb Queen NMs (for comparitive purposes - obviously both are popped NMs neither have PHs) whereby despot pops right on top of the dead placeholder and you automatically gets claim - though hate seems to go straight onto the last person who had it on the PH and he attacks them first.

I used the info of the poster below and it was spot on - cheers for that man helped a lot.

Went 1/2 in the end - soloed both times as BST75/WHM37 and it was easy really. Both times there was no competition so I didnt have to worry about it getting stolen. Very good evening started when I logged on and saw Mystic on Wide Scan, ran there claimed and it dropped. Killed 2 or 3 PHs which took abotu 50 mins or something and it popped.

Im happy :)

Ose camp info

The simple explanation:

Using Widescan at the Ose camp, you'll find a group of 8 Torama in the room where Ose pops - 2 in the tunnel to the SE, the other 6 scattered around the room.

Focusing your attention on the last 3 Torama, you will see one of these two situations:

Torama - on the east side of the room
Torama - on the WEST side
Torama - on the WEST side. This is one placeholder.


Torama - on the east side of the room
Torama - on the east side of the room. This is the other placeholder.
Torama - on the WEST side of the room.

***I've double checked to make sure I wrote that right.
If the last 2 are on the west side, the 2nd one is PH.
If the last 2 are split east and west, the east one is PH.***

For those w/o widescan, it's tougher, but you can narrow it down some.

Dividing the room into the 4 corners, SW, NW, NE, and SE, you can kind of tell where the placeholder is:

There will always be:
2 Torama IN the SE tunnel
2 Torama BY the SE tunnel (in the room, but not in the tunnel)
2 Torama by the SW tunnel
1 Torama by the dead end in the NW corner.

(There can also be 1 or 2 torama at the NE corner: Don't bother with these, they're unrelated. I say "can be" because those Torama like to disappear for an hour/hours after they're killed - I've no idea why.)

That makes 7 Torama. The 8th one, the placeholder, will either be among the two near the SE tunnel, or mixed in with the ones on the west side of the room.
In other words:
-If NW corner has 2 Torama, one is PH
-If west side of room has 4 torama, the PH is on that side.
-If SE part of the room has 3 Torama, the PH is there. (don't count the 2 in the tunnel.)

That's about as good as I can describe it. I don't know a good respawn time offhand, though others have posted their experiences. I've seen a 6 hr repop, so I usually just come back 4 or 5 hrs after ToD if I want to pop Ose a second time, or help someone with Mysticmaker.

Of course, if you can kill all the Torama in 16 minutes or so, then you don't need any of this. XD

Was there about 5 hours, killing Torama. 75THF/NIN

Friend comes (75RDM/WHM) cause I say Soulstealer Skullnix is up. Me having TH4 we killed it and got the Kard. I got it.

We go after Ose again now, another 1.5 hrs later, Ose pops. Bst teams up with us since he got claim and offered to team up. I'm tanking it thru about the whole fight, at about 5%, I'm recasting Ni knowing this thing has to drop, all of the sudden the Ni cast hasn't finished, I'm like wtf. I look up, R0.

Assault Jerkin dropped, I called my RDM friend he said he immediately lotted a 52 and the BST had passed. RDM friend got AJ.

I log back in about 3 minutes later. Lol what {luck}.

EDIT: 2 hours and 20 minutes later, went back with the same group, kept room clear, Ose popped at 2 hours and 50 minutes after ToD. We killed and got AJ, I won lot :DD.

2 Assault Jerkins in 2 hours and 50 minutes.

Helping a friend get Moldy earring and thought we'd
see if Ose was up. He was.

Rdm70/Thf30 and I (Whm75/Nin37) duoed him.

Tough fight for us. He hit hard and accurately. Tough
to keep either shadows or stoneskin up all the time. Had
to see it through tho, as gil sellers were looking over our
shoulders. The para was tough as we were both paralyzed
once and we couldn't get anything off. Luckily I was able
to Bene and get para off after that. Used all 5 of my
Echo Drops and he didn't have /whm to help in that

The fight took over half an hour for us. Repeatedly hammering
it and casting a few Nukes on it. We should have nuked more and
meleed less, but live and learn.

Got the Jerkin. Happy to get an unexpected new piece of gear.
