...and I don't even want the damn Katana anymore >.>

Easily soloable as a SAM75 (sub WAR). Only observation I have to add is that, of the four times he's spawned, he's done so without shadows up twice. The first two fights I had four shadows to Zanshin my way through, but the second two spawns I interrupted him as he began casting Ni *shrug*.

Edit: 1/7

EASILY solo'ed this thing as 75 RDM - took less than a minute to kill too... It used MG around 50%, but it did 0DMG with stoneskin and barfire up... One thing of note, to those who dont know, when it uses MG, it DOES NOT DIE... so expect to keep fighting. IT hit me with throat stab once, but a quick stoneskin, cure IV got me right back up and safe. Anyway, for the record, it CAN be solo'ed, and without a pet (so you dont need SMN or BST). Only dropped a tonberry coat and 6000gil (wow, now I can buy half a stack of silent oil to get to camp in my next pt, lmao!). I'llkeep at this, but it probably WOULD be wise to SUB bst and charm a torama, just to make it a little safer after throat stab....

always fun to try an nm just to find that sleep bolts dont work on them for .... some reason?

thanks again SE for making this mob un-soloable just for the worthless melee,

Duoed it with a RDM in my LS, we were both 75 and went /nin. Killed it extremely easily and Mijin did zero damage to either of us with no barfira up because I forgot. ^^
No drop.

Good to see NO ONE has posted the location and how to obtain any of the items required to pop the NM. I'm willing to solo it but so far, no one is any help with the location.

As you can see in the pic above, its in the painting room, dont know the exact position but every1 should know this room by now. Its one of the entrances to Den of Rancor for alot of missions.

To spawn him u need a Tonberry Rattle, they spawn every 2hrs. On the first map u get them by clicking a ???. I believe there's 8 different areas where the ??? will pop. Mostly through granite door rooms.

Hope this helps you.
Lvl is wrong

Drop Rates
# May 31 2005 at 12:46 AM Rating: Decent
My friend finally got his on his fifth drop.

Afterwards, I got one on my first.

So drop rates for my friend and I are 1/5 and 1/1. Take that as you will. ^^;

My 1/1 was without TH or TH2, same for my friend.

4 kills.... no drop.
spawn time
# Mar 08 2005 at 2:40 PM Rating: Decent
2 hour spawn time for ??? to pop Rattle.. 15 mins for ??? to pop NM..

On migardsormr ... 0/20 o.O;

This NM is the worst ever for drop rate... gone in with Rng75 Rdm74 Nin60 (sub War75 with Rng75 sometimes)... supposedly the faster you kill it the better the drop rate.. only spectulation... but it's rumored... and apparently the latent effect is triggered by a brd song?? That's pretty bad... i may even give this one up cuz Beryl-Footed has killed too many of of us time and time again for a pretty useless katana.. at that lv its hard enuff to hold hate when everyone's using Scorp harness's these days.. so why would i want less dmg and the fact that i need a Brd to make the latent work?? Bah.. I hate this NM.. lmao

Don't need a NIN in your PT for it to drop. A MNK friend and I (RDM) went to pop it for fun. Dropped katana.
Finally got the drop..

Just killed this thing for the 15th time (literally.) Jwb, the guy trying to get the Hototogisu, is the NIN in my static party. He brought his 75 RDM for the first 12 fights and we NEVER got the katana to drop. We finally decide "hey.. maybe you should bring your NIN because maybe it doesn't drop unless there is a NIN in the party." I know this shouldn't be the case, but we tried it anyway. So, Jwb brings his 57 NIN along to fight it. No drop for the 13th and 14th fight, but 15 was a charm. We finally got the katana. I would highly recommend bringing a NIN in the party, just in case this theory is true.

Also - for some reason on the 13th fight we really got messed up by Majin Gakure. We had all 4 of our members die - 1 being a level 75 PLD. We all took over 1200 damage each, with Barfira up. Strange thing is.. is that there was another alliance in the same room with us. Maybe that had something to do with it? Who knows. I'm just trying to watch out for everyone else trying to do this.

what is the location of the Tonberry Naruko used to pop this guy? I know its in a small side chamber but i got the whistle and the rattle so far my guess is its in a room behind the granite door at the entrance?

Fought this NM four times, twice with a party of nin60/nin60/rdm57, no drop either time.

We then fought it twice with nin60/rdm59/whm56/blm56, killed it both times and got the drop on the second kill.

The respawn time for the ??? is apparently 12-15 minutes and the level is decidedly closer to 57-62 comparing the exp we got from killing it to the other tonberries in the room, however it would easily kill a full alliance of level 6x-7x if they don't keep a safe distance from mijin gakure.

Also, after it uses mijin gakure it respawns from one of the picture frames.
