Bomb Ring
# Nov 25 2008 at 6:01 PM Rating: Decent
as of right now I'm 2/2 on Bomb Ring, to bad I lost the second, I've had 8 balloons pop, waiting for the doppelgangers.
This is just ridiculous

I'm 0/19 on the ring now. This is crazy (drop has been estimated at 1/3).
Bomg Ring

Camped here for awhile, my cousin wanted to learn dimentional death from one of the other NM there. We had 1 Doppelganger Gog, 2 baloons, and 3 bomb kings. He didn't learm his spell, we didn't get Doppelganger Gog's weapon drop, and we managed 1 bomg ring from the three kings.

Yay I gotta bomg ring ^_^
It knows i want that scythe!!!

ok this is my first post on this site so i thought i'd share something i've discovered. Square-Enix know what your after!! i've spent hours upon hours trying to get this spear and hes not even popped once!!! i've had gog and the king pop but not this SoB.

on a different note this is a great place for farming. bomb rings sell for a lot and stacks of bomb ash too. also i didn't know this but maybe you've seen it, baloons drop coarse boomerangs. they sell for 10k. i made 50k in an hour here its awesome, and if your lucky enough to get a cruel weapon then thats another 30-40k on top!

Hope this helps someone.

I camped the trio of NM's in here as Thf45
Either 1 of the Dopplegang duo / Bomb King / Baloon spawned every 10-15 minutes..
Got me a Scythe n Spear after 4th round & Ring 2nd attempt ^^
No one is ever in there so its not hard to claim, just boring as heck.
A Drk showed up half way through my sitting, so I gave the dude the Sycthe as I had no use for it! Total of 3hrs. Remember - be kind
my first experience

ARGG! i almost solo'd him as lvl 21 rdm/thf

i didn't plan on fighting him, i was just figuring out where each of the ruins were, and BAM! he was there. I had no plan, so i walked away, buffed my self up, and went in, i must've gotten him down to about 30hp when he killed me, mind you i was not fully healed up to do this, i had instant revive, so i used it, hoping to get away long enough to cast one cure to try and end his reign of terror, so what does he do? he self destructs to inflict just enough damage to kill me. And i really wanted that ring...:(

Having just killed Dio, I waited another ten minutes or so, and began checking all the rooms... And there he was.
Couldn't say how many HPs he had, as he used Self-destruct [For 67 damage] with a good third of his health. When he did hit me, it was for 7, and 10 damage.

Aneirin obtains a pinch of bomb ash.
Aneirin obtains a bomb ring.

- Aneirin, 30 THF.

Edit - Spawned again ten minutes later. Invited a low level player nearby for a free ring, and took it out. Sadly, only gave out ash. >.< 1/2.

Edit 2 - Spawned again after three Baloons [1/4 Boomerang]. Nobody around, so I left it there. >.>
