Historical Information

In Greek mythology, Argus was a one hundred eyed giant ordered to guard the nymph Io (in the guise of a white cow) by Hera from Zeus. In order to re-claim Io, Zeus sends the god Hermes to slay Argus. In order to bypass the giant's tendency to always keep at least one eye open, the messenger god posed as a shephard and recited boring stories to Argus until each eye fell asleep before killing him. In honor of his service, Hera emblazened Argus's eyes on the tail feathers of the peacock.

Got it on First Try ;)

Never seen Argus before ... only on Pictures on this side...

Logged before Update in Maze of Shakrami and waited the 6 hrs.
Then i logged in as fast as i could after Update and BAM there
was Argus standing in front of me.Got Claim and Drop at First Try lol

Think it was luck that Argus was on cause i heard that Argus shares
window with Leech King...

But im so happy that i dont have to camp this mob 24/7 cause of not
knowing ToD...

Good luck to all of u getting it ;)
Argus is a pain
# Mar 25 2007 at 1:06 AM Rating: Decent
Oh where to start, this guy was a pain, after almost a month of campin i finally completed my goal. Obtaining not one but two PcA's. I'm gunna try to make this as short as possible, cause i could go on and on.... I need 2 of these cause my best friend in RL needed one too, so with me, him, my gf, and my roommate(4 people, 2 char's) my char <75BLM/37WHM> (for tele) his <73THF/36RNG>, we went at it. kinda sucked when i was at work and they where camping not knowing what was goin on lol. It worked out really well though always having someone with there eyes on the screen, we went 1/12 on LK and 2/9 on Argus from 2/28/07-3/24/07, there was one other PcA drop that a bst claimed. All in all it seems to drop about once every 6-8 days(and thats between both LK and Argus), and i've tried all the little things people say(mini windows,protozoan in the hut...,ect.) and well i think it's all a bunch of crap, if your goin to camp this nm and don't have any luck like me be prepared for the agony of your life(ok maybe not of your life but still). widescan is a must!!! it got me claim so many times. I don't know how SE expects one person to maintain ToD while still tryin to maintain your life, if i didn't have so many people willing to help me i would have gave up a longtime ago, but I understand why they want the low drop rate cause there are already so many PcC's out there. I think taking LK out the equation and just making it Argus pop with the same drop rate would make people a little happier... but what do i know :P, well that's my input GL all, I never want to see Argus again. so glad im done :)

Even knowing all of the time I've blown on this NM. Id be a advocate for having argus a pop, like the TK NM is. I mean this is way to much of a time sync, i mean really... Course I'm not sure what would drop the pop item. Maybe the gobbies, certainly not the protozoan XD.

I lack the wherewithal and patience to camp Argus professionally, so occasionally when I have no ingame plans, I just go "hang out" in Maze of Shakrami. I don't have ToD or anything, I just bank on the possibly that Argus will be popped and unclaimed randomly when I arrive.

As you can imagine, that never works.

Nonetheless I will keep my character logged in that spot all day (and usually over night), hoping to see Argus, or at least get a reasonable ToD. I've done this for several months now, and its only worked once (but alas, no drop).

I tried again today, for the first time in forever. I don't know what drove me to do it either; just call it intuition. I arrived as SMN75/RNG1, and noticed many other people were already there; a good sign that Argus' window was open. I put my character in a good spot, and left. A few hours later, I was lying on my bed, and got a wild hair up my butt. I decided to check on my character. Wide Scan......nothing. I searched the area and noticed all the other campers were gone, which led me to believe Leech King or Argus popped and had already been slaughtered. So I sent carby to attack a scorpion out of boredom. I checked wide scan like 2 seconds later, and sure enough, Argus had spawned, and was standing right behind me no less.

Immediately I sent Carby after him, killed him, and low-and-behold, peacock amulet drops. Ultimately I'm 1/2 on this thing, which I think is pretty good. The first thing my brother asks me when the amulet drops is "Can I have your Spectacles?" Figures.

I know this information isn't all that helpful, but I'm still high right now, and felt like gloating. Several months of half-assed camping has finally paid off.
Here is something to think about
# Feb 16 2007 at 2:34 PM Rating: Decent
This is my first post ever on this site, so please bear with me if i ***** this up, but i decided to camp Argus after reading all the previous posts. i finally got mine today, this morning actually.^^ I went 0/3 on Argus and 0/3 on LK up until 2 days ago. I decided to team up with a 75rng/thf that was there. I am a 75rdm subbing my lvl 5 rng lol. I figured, why not. But anyway he had popped the two days prior, me getting last claim, and the rng,Salvatore, getting the next one. So yesterday we claim he gets his and the next day we claim and i finally get mine. I found it odd that he popped 4 days in a row and dropped it 2 days in a row. But here is the main reason for my post. I have been trying to keep track of a lot of things about when he pops, my reseach will not be finished cuz im not going back to that maze for a long time^^
I started my camping using the 16-17 minute mini window and that seemed to work quite well, til others showed up. I believe that when the protozoan dies, whereever it might be, affects the mini window. In the last week of my camping many ppl decided to kill the protozoan in their boredem. The protozoan has a 12 minute repop time. Ive timed this many times cuz i always camp at the end of the tunnel closest to the bone hut, so i know this is accurate. On my last 3 kills he popped in between one of those 16-17 mini windows, and yes i rechecked my math^^ Just to clarify myself, when i say popped in between the 16-17 min window that means he did not pop in that window, he popped at a different time. Im not sure if this resets the 16-17 mini window or this opens a new window for it to pop in 12 minutes or both. The one time i did kill the protozoan, Argus popped within 12-16 mins of the protos death, which did not fall in between the mini window. I couldnt figure it out for sure cuz i didnt mark ToD of proto til i noticed this and with my following 2 claims, i had gone afk to use wc or get drinks and came back to him being up. So im writing this for food for though for all u guys that want to try to tag this guy. It took me a long time and a lot of wasted sleep time to get this item, which i am very proud of. But anyway my character name is Zuku and im on the pandy server if anyone has any question feel free to send a tell. if ur wondering why ive only had 7 claims in 3 weeks it due to me losing ToD multiple times due to work or that maint. or due to my having to attend hnm events. good luck to all that attempt this and thanks for reading my post.
new pop theory?
# Feb 14 2007 at 5:56 PM Rating: Decent
19 posts
Figured I'd add a little bit here, sense iv camped this the last few weeks. Iv claimed argus 3 times, and LK about 20 times. various other pops in my log, that i missed. The main thing that i want to post about is my theory on how the pop timer actually works. It is believed that the timer starts when the mob dies. However i believe the timer restarts when the mob pops. I got the drop for a friend on my third claim, however the 2nd claim was from the day before. So i had ToD. On the third pop, my friend was camping, and i figured id go warp, and get some stuff done, sense we still had a hour left until the pop window.(i based this off of the ToD.) And low and behold 5 mins after i left, argus popped. He popped on the 17th hour, 10 minutes into it. Now the day before, or the 2nd kill, he had popped, however i wasnt around, so my friend called me, and i came down to help him kill it, it went about 45 mins or so, unclaimed. This would account for the early pop on the third claim.

So i believe that when one of the 2 mobs pop, the timer will restart, right when they pop. Sense there is still one mob that can pop, i think it is very possible that it will keep going, and potentially pop the other NM. To bad there is practically no chance, that you will see either one of the NMs left alone for a entire second window. It could kinda be like Rose Garden, if you leave it alone for another window, it changes into something else. Just imagine if this is true, and if you were to leave LK there for the next window, argus would pop, regardless. I wish there was a way to get people to leave it alone, but thats just impossible. I mean its drop is crap anyways, and it drops it at a 1/20 rate anyways, give or take a few.. Also i believe this could account for some people that get the ToD, on a unclaimed LK(or argus lolz) and they camp the full time, and dont see anything.

I dont know, i'd like to see what other 'experenced' argus campers have to say about this.(couple years ago i camped and got charm 1/8) Cause i am one of the people that have once got ToD and for some oddly reason, didnt see argus/LK within window. Now i suppose this could just simply be that the pop window is wider then we all thought. But im telling you guys that pop was on the 17th hour so, speculation is definitely wanted here.

Update: Got him a couple nights ago, and got my necklace FINALLY. i was 2/4 on this guy over the course of 4 weeks. I had his pop window pinned down for prob 90% of that time. Good luck to all.

k, heres my Argus story (so far...!)

Day1. Got ToD
Day2. Lost track of pop/ToD - start again :/
Day3. Got ToD (again)
Day4. Subbed BST for wcsan, got to zone 60-90mins after window opened.
No one at Argus camp...?
Ran back & forth spamming wscan.
3hrs into camp & the previous days claimer apears & warps away.
Only a couple of ppl show up for short periods of time.
I keep checking LK on wscan + visually (for campers)
18hrs later..... NOTHING! >.< WTF
Either it popped right at the start of the 18hr window, or someone zoned in,
spied LK (how i missed it, i dunno!) & snuck out!
Struggled to stay up ALL night & zip >.<
I hate this NM (& i love NM hunting)

First off, the map of Allah is wrong, i've seen him pop up in K-8.

Day 1:Camp 9 hours and get LK kill, no drop.

Day 2: I miss argus spawn when i went to go take a nap during 3rd hour of camping.
--21 Hour Spawn

Day 3: Had to goto work, get a rough spawn of either LK or Argus by calculating chat log of when last campers stopped moving.
--24 Hour Spawn (apx)

Day 4: Camp for 4 hours with no spawn, go take 45 min nap. Come back and camp for an addition 1 1/2 hours and lo and behold, there is that nasty looking argus (He poped directly next to the proto house on the west side, in <K-8>) Get claim with 'Charm'. Eventually kill him as 62whm/31bst, and what do i get after my 4 days of camping? A vial of mercury. Whoop de doo dah.

A 18-30 hour 50% spawn should be 100%. No if's ands or buts. I had to compete against 5 differnt ppl to get my claim and i got robbed.

Due solely to the fact that I have tomorrow off and i have the ToD, I will camp him again, but after that ima just assume SE is f*cked up in the head and will settle for the non rare/ex if I can get it from the BCNM40.

-edit-

Day 5: Stupid Stupid me. my /bst widescan is fairly small, and i have to run to the iron door in order to see the LK spawn area on the scan. I was lazy and just sat in the big room and not worrying about the LK. 50 mins into spawn some 75bst logs into the maze, and starts running. Curiously, i go to check the LK spawn on widescan and sure enough he is up. At least i wasnt afk and i have the ToD still. I prolly would have sat there for another 11 hours had i not gone to check to see why that guy started running.

---18h52m spawn

First off: The 16-minute mini-window is accurate. Great job Lilmarkutsa!

Just make sure you add the 16 minutes to the 17th-minute of the previous mini-window.

Edited out misinformation.

Happy hunting, good luck on claim and drop.

In fact they are random. Ive tested your method and LK has popped twice now with the Protozoan inside the hut... unfortunetly ; ;
Fight him from the front?
# Jan 12 2007 at 11:19 PM Rating: Decent
Well, after 9 Days he poped 5 times for me and I managed to misclaim once! Right before the last attempt someone gave me a tip-off that if you want the PCA to drop you have to face the front of him... I figured it couldnt hurt so I fought argus from the front and made sure the final blow was from the front... and wouldnt you know it dropped! All in all only took 100+ hours worth of camping togo 1/4

Don't know if this was coincidence or not but, it can't hurt(unless maybe your like lvl 50 and he paralizes you)!

PS. Anyone else find it annoying that some other people would show up and camp for only an hour before leaving... Hoping that they'd "get lucky" t(-_-t)

I don't find it annoying, as 2 of my claims came on a random trip down to his spawn area, but if you're going to actually "camp" it for any period of time, it's really helpful to have the ToD, and even if the window is open that's still a heck of a lot of potential time...

# Dec 29 2006 at 3:34 AM Rating: Decent
After the maintenance yesterday I thought I'd try to go balls-to-the-wall and camp this without leaving the maze empty handed. Leach King popped about 3 hours after maint with only me and one guy with ToD. 21 hours later Argus popped all alone, dropping 1/1. One thing I'd like to point out is that I took the exact ToD from when I killed LK, and the theory about 16-17min windows did not line up at all.

Hmm...I'm 0/3 on him, but the one time I had LK ToD the 16-17 minute window thing worked perfectly for me. He actually popped after 10+ hours of waiting, but it was right in one of those ~2 minute windows that I was checking widescan (he popped in the big room and I was in the small room). The other two times I killed him it was purely luck that I ran down there and he was just sitting there.
still camping this....

My turn!
# Dec 07 2006 at 9:33 AM Rating: Good
Well, after reading Flokk's post below, I'm on Fairy Server too, I decided to camp Argus too. Just a tip. On your first day there your main goal should be to get the ToD and not so much the claim since you don't know when it is going to spawn. This will save you a lot of stress from wondering how much longer you have to wait.

Day 1: Leech King popped (got ToD)

Day 2: Argus popped in small room (two bats were literally in my face messing up my targeting long enough for someone else to get claim, ot ToD)
Day 3: Leech King popped (got estimated ToD)

Day 4: Argus popped in big room (he popped BEHIND me just out of my view so I had no clue. I saw text of Argus casting a spell so I turned, targeted, booms omeone else got claim)

Day 5: Argus popped in big room (was alone so got claim no problem along with drop.)

Claims:
Leech King 0/2
Argus 1/3

Drop:
Peacock Amulet 1/1 (sub thf)

I think Argus has a mini window which seemed to match up with two of the tims I saw Argus pop. It could just be coincidence, but when it matches down to the minute twice I think it's right.

After 16 minutes pass there is a 1 minute window where Argus might pop (17th minute). I usually wait 2 minutes just to compinsate for seconds since I'm not sure if that is calculated in as well. Just remember you NEED the exact ToD for this to work and not someone's "estimated" ToD otherwise you'll be off on that 1 minute window.

So, if Argus died at 2am, then the windows opens up at 8pm. Add 16 minutes to that would make it 8:16pm. The possible pop window will be from 8:16-8:17 (I personally wait until 8:18 before relaxing). No pop, next mini-window would then be from 8:33-8:34 (added 16 minutes to 8:17). You just keep doing this until he pops. I'm not saying this is guaranteed, but it worked out on 2 Argus spawns that I saw so it's worth a shot.

While this does not shorten the 12 hour window, at least you don't have to STARE at the screen for 12 hours straight. Hope this helps!
My turn!
# Dec 22 2006 at 4:46 AM Rating: Decent
I have also put this 16 minute window theory to the test.

A friend and I have been camping Argus over a week now, and when we had ToD we would test this. We have confirmed this 6 times now, so I am thinking its safe to say this is entirely accurate.
argus has no mercy
# Dec 03 2006 at 7:21 AM Rating: Default
gratz flokk its me veg. lol i'm still here trying to get mine. 3rd day in a row that it wants to wait till the last 2 hours of his window to pop... so boring. my bad about the poof thing. I didn't just say hey poof this guy is holding argus or nothin like that. i got a tell from poof asking if i got ToD and i said no its not dead yet and then she just called GM out of nowhere

bah been here every window for the past 3 and a half weeks not even 1 claim

Well, I just decided to camp an amulet this week on Fairy server, figured what the heck. First day, I go down there, luckily I landed in an ongoing window with a handful of people there. Ended up killing Leech King 8 hours later with another guy - no drop.

Second day, about 6 hours into the camp, Argus popped in the entrance of the smaller room, easy claim against the only other camper. I spoke to the guy, since I knew him already, and we agreed that it was no problem if I waited for a TH4 thief friend to run out as long as it didn't take more than fifteen minutes, in case somebody else ran in and got the TOD. Here's where it gets interesting. The guy tells his linkshell, which just happens to be Playtime, which just happens to be led by a certain psycho ***** who goes by the name of Poof - some of you might know her. She's in Windhurst at the time, where she places a GM call for "stalling", and naturally the GM was at the scene in 2-3 minutes. Anyway, GM comes in, blathers a bit about stalling, kill it, etc etc., so we held it and wacked on it a bit until the TH4 got there, and voila! got the kill and the drop in under 16 hours of camping total. All in all not a bad experience, despite the psycho ***** aggro at the end. I'm very thankful for that, because this camp could turn into a living hell very easily.

I think some other people have said it, and they're right, this camp is the most difficult I've ever done. You need a book, or movies, or TV, or something, because you will not last if you try to pull the entire thing straight up. Anybody who pulls this off gets my honest congratulations.

camped this guy over nite one time while i was sleeping. I woke up to see "The Argus casts blaze spikes" 14 times before someone claimed him. Funnier thing is, i saw this all in my chat log before the next conquest tally (which happens every hour on the hour) and i walk a little down the hall and the blm who killed it was resting mp. I woke up like 5 minutes too late. hehe

Peacock Amulet will be mine, oh yes it will be mine:)

Got ToD today and am finally ready to take care of some unfinished business. Wish me luck.

I'll post strategies later or while im camping if Argus is being stubborn. In all ive had him claimed around 12 times and have only missed a claim while I was camping twice.

They changed the item ages ago. He is alot less camped since then, tho he still is. But unless u're a real lucky guy to actually have him spawn and DROP. . .u might be better off just wasting ur time in farming/camping gil (or do the peacock charm BCNM) then camping him.

I Personally took ~1day to get a ToD and 10days of camping (6kills afair) to get the drop. . .

I had been camping this little bugger on and off for a little over a month now, and originally I believed he was a myth, I could sit there for the whole window perid on multiple occasions and he wouldn't even pop. So before I left for school this morning I did a few things, and logged at his spawn point thinking maybe I'd get lucky once I got home. So I come home, log on, and all the regular/afk campers are gone, there are maybe 2 people in zone and both are around 26ish. So I figured he had already popped, so I start talk walk out, and I leave the big room, turn one corner, and wouldn't you know it, there he was, just standing around like it was no one's business. I think I might have peed my pants but I'm not really sure, Lol. So I figure this was a sign, it was too good to be true, and that I would have one of those great, I just walked in, saw him and got the drop stories^^. But unfortunately all I left with was Vial of Mercury and wet underwear. ;_;. I loathe this NM.

You did read the posts below ? There will either Argus or Leech King spawn. Only 1 of them will spawn and will reset the respawn timer. So u might find yourself camping there for 2weeks without ever having Argus pop.

I was in the Maze farming some Scorpion Shells as a level 56 DRK/THF so that I could get Bonecraft to level 60. I didn't have any intention whatsoever to camp Argus. I made a couple of trips around the Scorpion Circuit and then on my way out, dropped down and headed towards the Buburimu exit so that I could get the two scorpions that spawn in Argus's big room. As I entered the room, I saw three /anon campers there ..

.. and Argus. He was just sitting there, plaintively looking at me with all one thousand of his eyes.

The campers were obviously AFK, because I just walked up to him, pulled out my scythe, and engaged him. For a while it was kind of a hairy fight since I had used all of my MP while farming and only had enough for a single Drain. I wasn't even wearing all of my gear, since I had sent some of my DEX/Accuracy gear to another character for use in a skillup party. He had me down to about a third of my HP when he was only half dead, so I had to 2-hour. Luckily, three hits later I was back in white HP. (Mock Blood Weapon all you want, but on mobs like this it's a godsend.) One Vorpal Scythe later, Argus was dead and I was the proud owner of a new Peacock Amulet. And all I was looking for were some lousy Scorpion Shells.

The bottom line is that if a level 56 DRK/THF can beat this mob with no MP and half his gear missing, any 50+ melee who actually has decent skills and equipment should be able to take him solo. And while I do feel a slight tinge of guilt knowing that some players spend agonizing weeks of hell trying to get that which I just sort of wandered into, I hasten to point out that I'm 0/22 on the Moldavite Earring. (No, that is not a typo. Zero. For. Twenty. Two.) I view it as some sort of karmic realignment.

Got my Peacock Amulet, 1/1 on Argus. was just there as 64Thf/Rng to get ToD but i'd check widescan every now and again just incase it popped, but soon it was 7am and sleep seemed more important. I had left my char there for 12 hrs while i slept with no pop, then later that day i decide to camp him while lfp and since the same 2 /anon's were there with the addition of 2 more campers i decided there was a high chance he hadnt even popped yet unless Leech king had spawned whilst i slept. 2hrs into camp i check ws and there he is in the room with the scorps, 3 of the campers must have been afk and the other just casted to late, i claimed and conquered. i was very skeptical about this camp because im used to easy camps like LL, VE, JEJ and Dunewidow which are all a min of 1hr repop with PH's and i can pretty much pop them straight away and know the second they've popped, but im pretty sure there is no pattern to Argus/Leech king to making them pop and the pop window of 12hr is rediculous let alone the 18hr respawn wait. So im thankful my camp ended quickly, then agian my bro naggin me to get his 2moro. Legellas of Remora.
