Killed it!
# Feb 22 2008 at 2:50 PM Rating: Default
I camped this yesterday as a 62THF/31NIN and killed it in about a minute or less. Hit it with a couple acid bolts and 2 1k Danving Edge's and it was dead. Just got 3.5k and a cobalt jellyfish. Mugged for 500+ gil.

Alrighty, stayed there for a 2nd pop. Was alone the whole time. Seems like his pop time is about 90mins to 2hrs. Killed him just as quick. He dropped the Ampulla this time along with another 2.4k in gil and a Cobalt Jellyfish. The Holy Ampulla currently goes for 100k on Siren as of right now. Happy hunting for everyone. ^^

Just killed this punk not even 5mins. ago. Took 2hrs to pop. Owned him as a Taru 70MNK. Auto Regen doesn't even affect you if you can do enough dmg to him quickly. Dropped 2.4k in gil and a stupid Cobalt Jellyfish.

2/3 on Holy ampulla drop. Both times I got the drop, it aggroed me first. Don't think that has anything to do with it, but oh well.
1/1 in 15 minutes

Well, I finally have a happy NM story.

Was heading to Norg to pick up soem katanas for NIN and decided to swing by this guy's spawn and kill one round of Spring Sahagins to see if he'd pop.

First repopped, another spring. Damn. Second popped... holy ****, it's him.

I had 100+ TP built up on my 60DRK/30THF already, so started off with a nice 850 damage guillotine, then proceeded to drain, aspir, absorb-tp, and smack him until about 60%, pulled another guillo, repeat, Last resort + guillo'ed him to almost nothing left, then a couple more smacks and he was mine. (I ignored the link while he was whiffing on me.)

I prayed, and ********* I got the ampulla. This is a cool 200k on Ramuh right now I think, but I'd rather use it on WHM. My first good experience with an NM.

For everyone else, I recommend what I do with most NMs now. If you're in the area, just kill off the PHs once and wait for a round to repop. If the timers are up, you should get a NM pop, hopefully to yourself like I did. Camping LL and VE for up to 12 hours at a time was driving me insane, so I try to relax more on other NMs.

Well, after weeks finally got the spawn...

as 61WHM/30BLM he destroyed me (i was wearing mostly melee gear and had STR 43+23)

his auto-regen basically mitagated all my attacks which averaged 90 per hit. Used WS 5 times for 300+. His hits were doing about 30-55 on me
His hp never dropped below 70%

My advice, for fellow White Mages... use MP only for Stoneskin, Paralyze, Dia II and Choke (or whatever you prefer). Paralyze works well on him, and Dia II coupled with Choke will help bring down his regen. Also, grab a DD, because well, you're gonna need some strong damage to keep his health down and not climbing back up so damn fast ><

I tried camping this guy months ago when Ampulla was selling for like 110k, but now it's down to 60k, and it's easier to just go kill Goobbue Gardeners in Zi'Tah for two or three of their Tree Saplings, which are currently selling for 25k - 30k each, and just buy the thing on the AH. I guess SE finally kicked out the two Chinese bots that were camping it continuously, because the price dropped 50k in just a couple of weeks. Only North Americans are camping it now (I don't think the Japanese care about camping it, and the French don't really know about it yet).

You're a bit racist sounding there, but this post is hands down, the funniest thing I've ever read on this site.

Are you for real? Do you just sit on your computer camping this NM and asking everyone else where they're from? I mean seriously, coz if you don't, you have no right to make these remarks. Also, what gives you the right to group people together like that?

"Who are the French?" - "Oh, they're those guys that don't know who Wuur the Sancomber is." - "What about the chinese?" - "Oh, they're the guys you see botting Wuur." - "And Japanese? - "Ach, I've met them all, they don't care about camping it."

I mean really, it sounds so ridiculous that you would just come to this conclusion about people, but post your "findings" here on Allah.

Still though. Funny for the wrong reasons.

I was camping Masan for the pigeon ruby when someone ran a train buy me and i see the nam wuur. So i come here and see that it only lvl 46 so i run and pull him from the train. I take him to Norg zone and begin to fight. im 74 brd/nin all i needed was paeon x2 and i never droped under 1000 hp but it toke a long time like 45 min for me to kill because of his auto regen.
I used two dagger Heatsnatcher latent still on and Taillefer's. my Dagger skill was only 100 and i got 10 skill lvls for the fight to bad he didnt drop. But it was a fun fight.

Just got him, was fishing for Nebo's but decided to give him a go. He popped about after 10 minutes. Unfortunetly his Auto-Regen was too much for me (Taru 63 blm) and .. i got a link. Invited a random guy that was leveling his npc. I couldn't have solo'd it I don't think. Killed him with the help, but only Pantam Kelp ; ;

When the servers came back up after today's update, I decided to get myself one of these since I'm too cheap to buy one of my own and WHM71, 36 levels past the Holy Ampulla. >.> Anyway... I killed placeholders for about an hour before he popped, and then went to work with my trusty Darksteel Maul... problem is, his auto-regen is so wicked and my DD capability so abysmal that I quickly realized that I'd run out of MP long before I wore his HP down to 0. I asked my LS for help, switched to Lilith's Rod for the Aspir effect (which also killed my DD so much that within maybe two minutes he auto-regenned back to 100% from 75-ish), and went into standoff mode: keep Stoneskin up and hold him there until I got a DD there to help me. I wasn't hurting him and he wasn't hurting me, and with the rate of the MP drain effect on Lilith's Rod, I probably could've stayed there until Wurr was out of MP. Once a friend got there, it was easy, and I got the drop, though I was on /THF at the time with TH1. Yay.

The moral of the story is: make sure you hit for more than my 30-50 per hit if you want to take this NM.

I was looking for a Treasure Chest and found this game. Easil soloed as 66 RDM/33 WHM (although, it aggroed me and Alla says this guy is level 46... weird, should've have aggroed).

Dropped 2400 gil, Holy Ampulla (selling for 250k) and Cobalt Jellyfish.
Help me!

7 hours for nothing, awh >< I hate this NM ><

Just a friendly tip, though you posted this 20 days ago, I think everyone could use this tip.

When you have an NM, and a link, unless you are ABSOLUTELY unable to take both at the same time...
/attack the NM, and when you have TP, use weapon skills on the other mob. You'll keep your claim, and still kill the add-on.
I myself have had way too many mobs stolen from me to not use this method.

Happy camping.
RE: Tip
# Sep 03 2005 at 9:56 AM Rating: Decent
Add on to that make sure you circle the main mob so as the other mob is right behind it so as in it looks like this (ADD) (MAIN MOB) YOU that way you can block, or if your me Counter the other mob and are able to use your Ws's on it without turing or misfiring. Also if the link is mage or rng move your mob closer to it so that you can then do what i said above
We hate each other ><

This NM hates me x_X Camped him yesterday, 55 DRG/WHM. After 5 hours of placeholder killing it finally popped. Guess who got it? The THF who arrived 10 minutes ago.
Today I decided to camp it again but I had to help my mother, so I went downstairds, came back and the NM was attacking me with a friend of him o_O I attacked it, but since I'm extremely careful I decided to kill the Spring Sahagin first because there was nobody else there. When the Spring Sahagin was dead, a 75 NIN came and claimed the NM although I told him that I didn't need any help ;_; He didn't respond and walked away when he was finished.
7 hours for nothing, awh >< I hate this NM ><

Camped him again and after 36 minutes he popped and dropped ^_^ Unfortunately Holy Ampulla dropped from 150k to 100k then^^ But hey, 100k are nice ^_^

Got him, RDM61

Killed him twice today, first time Enspell+Hornetneedle+Haste and Gust Slash spammed then slept him mid-casting when his AI kicked in at 15% HP for him to Cure IV, then Chainspell-Thunder2'ed.

Went to do LS run versus Garuda Prime.

Running down to the Silver Beastcoin door again, checked to see if he was up. He was, and he aggroed me (leads me to believe hes about 50ish, not 46), I pulled him a to a sahagin-free tunnel right there and began. Let me say something, most monsters (usually excluding HNM and sky stuff) have an MP bar like players do. They also have set HP bars too (Apple Pie found the HP bar count for like every mission NM, like 5-1 Archmage at ~11k HP).

Hornetneedle+Haste+Enthunder and spamming Gust Slash overcomes his Auto-Regen. Didnt bother to blind or slow, paralyzed him and tried silencing him, but hes unsilenceable. I knew I wasnt going to beat him unless I chainspelled or tried an MP bar trick, I instead started to spam Energy-Steal/Drain and Aspir.
-He will run out of MP!!-
He ran out of MP and I finished him with a Gust Slash.

Only dropped Ampula the first time, but I got a nice Bastore Sardine both times! Drops 2,400 gil exactly both times.
spawn time
# Jun 20 2005 at 2:47 AM Rating: Decent
area (h-8) there are 2 Spring Sahagins. Their spawn time is 12mins. he is a lottery pop from these. i got him to spawn in about an hour. im 63rdm. this guy takes forever to kill if you arent a good dd. if you dont do enough damage his auto regen will keep him full health. i was using my dagger like i do all fights but his auto regen was too much, had to switch to sword. finished fight with 600hp and 150mp. still had convert. with phalanx up he still did like 5-15 damage a hit. sadly after a loooong 20min fight(i like dragging fights out), all i got was 2400 gil and a bastore sardine ; ; im actually farming this for a friend of mine, guess ill be here a while. /sigh

PS tried the poison trick but he never cast poisona :(

EDIT-spring sahagins not stream ><

keep em poisoned
# Jun 16 2005 at 4:12 PM Rating: Default
yeah the poison thing worked well. Instead of his usual cure 3 or 4 not sure... he uses casting turn on poisona.... so i'd say to solo safely youd want 55-58 DD or 60-65 mage
at 64 he wasnt much trouble just a long fight...
keep em poisoned
