What a chump...!

Solo'd as Beastmaster 61/ Ninja 30. I popped a Tavnazian Taco, charmed the closest Death Cap and had him fight while I rested my HP. It took one Decent Challenge Death Cap, one Even Match Death Cap, and for safe measures one Tough Mourioche. Basic /ninja strategy (Keep your shadows up) and you'll be fine. I'm sure you could solo this as low as 59-60 Beastmaster with enough Charisma.
No drop, but still fun

Just solo'd him as 61BST/30WHM, kept SS and blink up through out, either he naturally has poor ACC or it had something to do with it being lightsday I don't know, but everytime he got a swing at me it was a miss. I never took 1 point of damage the whole fight.

I was only 70xp into 61, but I thought, eh heck with it, I'll have a go, cause that's what BST is all about, lol. Popped RR earring JIC and charmed the nearest death cap and familiard it. It took him down to probably 60-70% and after that I just used the other shrooms in the room.

4 pets, 1 zeta, 125 xp, 6k gil and a sleepshroom, easily pwned by a BST.

As 65 BST in the Tree, I been killing Ellyllon now each level and claiming my 6k per kill. Hey, every 2-3 hours 6k payday works for me. Here is what I do, wait 2 hours then go and slaughter the mushrooms. Ellyllon should pop this round, if not repeat the slaughter again. She will pop usually the second time. I was 0/5 till this past Sunday and now 1/6 for the Helm :). I have gotten the crap, truffle, then the reishe, then crap, more crap, then the helm, lol. So for BST at 62, Ellyllon is guaranteed killed if you dont mischarm and stay calm.

Ellyllon is a funguar on steroids. She spams WS with little or no TP and she hits 100+. Her accuracy is decent too, she went through my shadows and tore into me with stoneskin for 98 points and that wasnt critical. In 10 hits or less she will take you down if you do not get a pet on her. Also, its weird but she builds hate to BST like crazy, I mean I have to run and take 2-3 hits before she focuses on my new pet. From my experience, she seems to share the hate between the pet and master. She isnt hard to take down but boy she takes down your pets. I think I use 3-4 funguar to take her down. Spiders there are too squishy and should only be used as a last resort. She eats spiders for breakfast. And like some people have learned her WS are not to be taken lightly, her WS do optimal damage even when buffed.
Dont get cocky

Ok I am a 75 bst/nin and was running throught the area that it pops an saw i was up. Knew it should be easy as a solo bst. Charmed a shroom in the room and set it to fight the Nm. Pulled the fight out into the tunnel. Let the pet get a few hits and then joined in the mele. After a few hits the NM turns to me with a peed off look in its eye and pomptly paralyzes me. I think well thats not too bad it will wear soon. Well, got the NM down to about 30% and was having real hate issues and my pet was nearly dead. When the pet died I tried to pop a jug but i was still paralyzed so the jug wouldnt pop. Ran into the room utsusemi was well down by this point and the NM was hitting for 100+. Went to the first schroom and failed charm - lol - on an easy prey! So I had two on me - tried to tame but I dont think that worked due to paralysis either. Anyway I bit dust just near where Aquarius pops. upshot of all this...I was too cocky as most of us bsts can often be. I didnt prep or even have a plan for the fight. Watch out for Paralyse fellow BSTs as it can really stop your chances. I'l get it another day.....

BTW - Aquarius and the AGA NM both bit the dust due to my hand that evening :)

Soloed this pretty easily at 68, it hits hard, but it doesn't much hp. Main thing you would have to worry about is the paralyze and silence moves, which can also deal alot of damage at the same time. 1/2 on the drop.

Just beat the **** out of this shroom as a 66THF/33NIN. Fought it on windsday with my Garuda Dagger so Ellyllon was constantly silenced and with that he was a piece of cake.

Loot: Dropped a sleepshroom 10k and teh uber Mushroom Helm.
Deadly NM
# Oct 18 2005 at 8:30 PM Rating: Decent
just solo'd this NM. It has Deadly hits on tarutaru bst but it is soloable as a lvl 60 taru bst if u use EM and T pets.

Dropped the helm, 6000G and a sleepshroom. Most likely a bst will pop it by exping but bst cant even use the helm, so this NM is gay.

BST 60
WHM 75

Wooped Him
# Jul 28 2005 at 12:09 AM Rating: Default
Got a message from a friend saying "Oooh Ellyllon in Boyoda Tree" lol so i was like ok ill go get him! Grabbed a 73 PLD friend just incase i couldnt kill as 66 RDM/BLM. Well i was right lol, get there get claim and he starts hitting me for 150-160 per hit with phalanx and protect IV on >< so i gravity (stuck easy) and wait for PLD to arive, pretty easy fight, we got 3000g each and a sleepshroom. We also got 24 exp so i would say this is a lvl 65-67 NM, very easy with a 70+ tank i would say.
Oh yea, and apparently hes not that wanted lol, a couple 75 THF/NIN's passed right by him thinking nothing of it, or maybe flee just made em not realize was NM...

nothing particularly useful for drops, the helm is rare/ex and giving +regen +2int and +2mnd, the market for who would want it is limited, and further limited to those who can use it.

killed this dude with my duo partner at 61..he was a wimp...2 em pets and us meleeing took him down easy..no drop but 3k gil each and cahin 2 for 180 exp i think (we realsed pets at the end).

I just fought this with my 61 BST and it took quite a few pets to get through this.

First off, it hits for about 200+ most of the time. When I beat him I still had my pet, and I got 140 exp, which means this is about a lvl 65-66 NM. It spawned in the room at H-12.

I also got 6000 gil, a sleepshroom, and a reishi mushroom. Hope this all helps.

on the way out of an xp pt one night....ls friend and i were looking for coffers so he could get a map...and i see an odd name while scrolling through the Death Caps looking for a Treasure Coffer to show up.
so...get on here...check this...figure...eh, what the hell, worth a shot for the 2 of us to duo (me: elvaan 63rdm/blm, him: hume 63rng/nin)...if anything goes sour, i figure i can just chainspell escape us no problem. well....as figures...one of the first things it does is one of the gas attacks....does about 800dmg to the rng. i throw out a cure iv, and get hate. i'd buffed us both w/ pro iv/shell III, myself w/ stoneskin/phalanx....and, well....seemed like it wasn't going too bad, when he uses silence gas.

all a sudden...my hp's 0 but i'm still standing so the animation of the attack can finish...rng runs like hell, ends up accidentally making a lap around and coming back through...and the 5 death caps in the room link. he makes it to zone borderline yellow/orange.

i'm gonna have to come back for this guy...just outta principle >.>

Solo'd this tonight as 60 bst. I used about 5-6 EM pets on it. I didn't get the hat, but I couldn't have used it if I had. Just killed it to see if I could....no good drops, but I did get 231xp and 6k gil.
# Dec 16 2004 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
Killed him today... very easy for 60 bst. Just charmed a vt mandy and sent him in. Mandy died so charmed a Death Cap who finished the job. Only got the 6k and a sleepshroom tho. :(

I soloed this as a 61 BST. It was a very easy fight. I kept Blink up and didnt get hit once.

It dropped Mushroom Helm, Sleepshroom, and a King Truffle as well as 6000 Gil.

Soloed him tonight while leveling in the Tree. Took 5 hours for him to pop. His HP and Defense aren't much stronger than the Death Caps around him, but he hits much harder. Not recommended to melee him until 70+, minimum.
Tried to solo

I'm a level 68 Paladin and he tore me apart, 80+dmg and an AOE attack for 500 dmg.

I took on this NM at BLM67/RDM33. I was equipped with a Wizard's Coat and a Spider Torque for +15 enfeeb (totalling to 220).

I killed the Death Cap's in the room one-by-one, and I'm strongly guessing that they're the placeholders. Not to disprove phreakonaleashh's post, but usually BST's like to lvl in this area of the tree, so the NM very well may have the Death Cap's as placeholders as they'll steal one as a pet every now and again usually. There are 5 that spawn in this room.

The NM does not aggro, but will still link with the other Death Caps. I was resting, and it popped next to me, didn't get mad at me till I pulled him with Gravity.

My spells were sticking for full strength most of the time, Gravity was doing well enough to last me thru using up most of my MP nuking, and I still got a full stick with my Sleep II spell (even on Darksday, the NM's primarily ele).

But the same strategy goes for this NM as does if you were to solo Aquarius ("kiting the mob" they call it)... cast Gravity and nuke as you run away from it, Stun and Bind it in order to keep it from beating on you, don't forget Blink and Aquaveil before fighting (Stoneskin is 34RDM, so I don't have that yet)... and if you need MP, put it to Sleep and rest for a few hundred MP or so. I had to Sleep it once to regen my MP enough to kill it.

I got the hat to drop on the 5th kill. Each time he drops 6000gil, a sleepshroom, and enough EXP for it to be at about a Lvl 64-66 mob. It also dropped a Reishi Mushroom once. It had about 3800-3900HP. Killing it twice in one night, I can say I waited 4 hours and 20 minutes between 1st t.o.d. and the 2nd spawn (but never stayed another night long enough for two consecutive spawns).

(Thanks to Desi and Blackz on Midgardsormr for offering to help me out with my first and last kills of this guy... ^^)

Killed this NM twice in two days now, however I don't think the mushrooms need to be killed.. we were exp'ing on robbers, and periodically checked in to see if Elly had spawned... we killed no Death Cap's but still got the spawn.
