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.

After reading that 15, or so, day log of an Argus camp, I decided to give this a whirl for my 52 Drg/War was in desperate need of some Acc. So I headed to the Maze as is. Sat in front of the screen for 34 hrs. straight, camping the Big Room with the Hut, occassionaly running over to check if Leech King popped (yes, I later realized this was crucial in order to at the very least obtain ToD). Well... nothing. Not even a glimpse of the eye-riddled bugger. I decided to Flag the Ranger Job and return with Widescan. I had developed a theory on ToD based on the arrival and departure of some more prominent campers. Subbed my Ranger and returned to camp. Camped about 20 hrs this time with nadda, no Leech King, no Argus, no ToD. At this point I was determined not to waste the already invested time. So I decided, in order to keep my sanity, to AFK camp for ToD. First night, after 6 hrs afk, nothing. Had errands out of town and intended to return in about 7-8 hrs. Left him AFK camping. Well, one thing led to another and I ended up staying out of town over night, constantly afraid that my 360 would explode from being on for so long. The next morning, about 10:00 AM, I returned to discover The Argus was in my log! You would have thought I got the Amulet I was so ecstatic. Five days and I finally got ToD. Ok, now it's time to get serious. I need the claim not just ToD. Beyond that, I need to lvl a Thf in order to improve chances of drop. Had ToD, knew when to return, went to lvl Thf while I waited for 12 hr. Pop Window to arrive. Lvl'd Thf to 17 and had to get back to the Maze for an all-night, at the keys, vigil. Checking entire pop-area so I wouldn't lose ToD at the least. Very quiet evening; a couple 2 hr. campers at the most. No AFK campers anywhere. At one point, I was the only one in the entire Maze. Got bored and lax because of the lack of competition. Decide to watch a movie and switch back and forth to keep my eyes on the Argus camp. Back and forth, back and forth. Nothing.... until about 8 hrs. into the camp, I had been away for about 45 min. (was getting even more lax in the vigil), I switch back to Argus camp, look around the Big Room, turn around run down to the room with the Two Bats.... Argus!!! No one's around. Perhaps they were all off playing with their just-came-of-age Chocobos. I had been told it would be too difficult for a 52 Drg/17 Thf, so I brought some Hi-potion +3 and some Meat Mithkabobs. Ate a Mithkabob and charged the prey I had been hunting for 6 days.... 300 hp's later, no 2 hr. used, no Penta thrust used.... I was the %^^*&$$$##@@* proud owner of a sparkling-new Peacok Amulet (2 Hecteye Eyes and a Mercury)! Moral of the story... I was truly fed-up, told my self if he didn't pop I was going to quit the game entire, but resolved to stick it out to prove the discipline and dedication I possessed. It became a test of mettle; to take my measure. I know, I know... my camp was ultimately short, but didn't seem that way at the time. Unbelievable! Argus 1/1

Don't give up!

Went back the next night with friend.... Got it again! 2/2 Un-effin-believable! He fell asleep and I staid up and got the damn thing.

Ok guys here it is, now that i finally have this amulet, after priceless hours of work, here is all my info.

Previous Argus Camps left me, 0/2Argus 0/2Leechking

Current Argus Camp, went like this;
(It's hard to keep track of all this, but this stuff is 99% right)

Day1 Argus | No Drop | - #hours ToD Obtained

Day2 Argus | No Drop | - 20Hours (Not Claimed by me)

Day3 LKing | No Drop | - 24Hours (Not Claimed by me)

Day4 Argus | No Drop | - 24Hours Pop: FarEast BigRoom

Day5 Argus | No Drop | - 28Hours Pop: NorthEast BigRoom

Day6 Argus | No Drop | - 19Hours Pop: North(BoneHut) BigRoom

Day7 Argus | No Drop | - 22Hours Pop: Middle BigRoom (TH1)

Day8 Argus | No Drop | - 24Hours Pop: NorthEast(water) BigRoom

Day9 Argus | No Drop | - 26Hours (Not Claimed by me)

Day10 Argus | No Drop | - 24hours (Not Claimed by me)

Day11 LKing | No Drop | - 28hours (Not Claimed by me)

Day12 Argus | No Drop | - 24Hours Pop: Smallroom North of circle

Day13 Argus | No Drop | - 30hours Pop: North(Bonehut) BigRoom (TH1)

Day14 Argus | DROP!!! | - 25hours Pop: Smallroom South of Circle (TH1)

NOTE: I know the people who got the claim the days i did not, rest assured that there was no drop for this long, makes me sick to look at too.

Camped as: 75nin/37war (Mainroom, in the dead center)
- Monitor 32rdm/10whm (Smallroom, 2ndAccount)
- Monitor 32mnk/16war (LKingroom, 3rd account)
(FYI: 2nd and 3rd accounts, not paid by me, just rich friends parents,
only used for extra set of eyes, did not use them to win any claims.)

Claim rate: 100% (was afk for any of the ones "Not claimed by me")
Drop rate: 10% (I only have TH for 3fights, many people i know 1/3ish)

Recommended lvl: 50+ if you don't have Paralyna and your 50ish, good luck...
Recommended claim ability: Doesn't matter, if you have ToD your pretty much set, people arn't always paying attention.

Camping strategies:
1. Do not run around, stay still, make people think you just getting ToD
2. If protozoan is in house, LEAVE HIM THERE, do not fight him.
- 80% of the time argus pop, Protozoan was in the hut.
3. If there is alot of competition, it's rough, stay in big room.
4. If you don't have 3accounts, lol, you must have Widescan!
5. If you get argus don't yell it to your linkshell, or anyone, don't give away ToD. ToD is so important.

1. Pop is 24hour for the most part.
2. There is no pattern (just theories) to LK Argus Spawns
3. Vial of Mercury's are awesome.
4. Be a good sport, don't lie about a ToD, or whatnot, just "Stretch the truth"
5. 18-30hour from ToD.

Enjoy camping this mo-fo. 100+hours of camping him, is finally over.
I got mine cause i did not give up, you shouldn't either.

it's not 1 protozoan that either stays or roams, there are 2 protozoans, they are on a shared window similar to argus/LK are. If protozoan in the hut is popped, then leech king will pop. If the protozoan that pops outside is up, then argus will pop. It isn't just speculation anymore!

reason for theory ← something my friend sent me ;)

Last night, Argus popped. This post is wrong on it's account. But, you're right on one thing...the speculation IS OVER, Protozoan in the Hut does NOT mean Leech King will spawn over Argus spawning! lol
4 ppl camping, we left the Protozoan in the Hut alone the entire 4 hrs I was there...entire time he wasn't touched. SO, using this speculation I was closer to the other end of the room for a quicker run to Leech King. Sure enough, as I scanned across the room, there sat big'n'ugly Thousand Eyes Master Argus, claimed by a !SMN!!! =(...dang. After I got ToD...I beat the living snot out of the Protozoan using Mighty Strikes out of spite, little {******* Sword}...hope it hurt so hard, his spawns will feel it for a week lol.
SO, answer is NO... Protozoan in the Hut does NOT mean Leech King will spawn, total myth debunked. Ugh...I hate this f'in place, 80+ hrs straight and frustration becomes me...looking into the BCNM for Pete's sake.

1/6 on Argus, killed him August 6 2006 and the peacock amulet finally fell out of this blinky little dude's head.

First time I fought him was when the drop was not rare/ex, every other time was after the rare/ex update. Every time I fought him I had TH2.

This completes the set: Bounding Boots, Empress Hairpin, and Peacock Amulet.

Hi guys i am lv 75 samurai on the carbuncle server and this thing has allways been a passion of mines for the 2 years ive been playing and i finaly decided to give it a wurl now that it spawns in a much larger area, first i wana say to all those who read this and are thinking of hunting this NM, you must have literly nerves of steal, this is not an eassy nm to camp, getting claim is an eassy thing compared to sometimes camping 12 hrs wich is usualy more than people are willing to camp but chin up because the drop is worth it, the person who posted the thing about the argus/LK spawn according to the possition of protozoan i put his theory to the test and for sometime it proved true but one time LK did spawn when pro was roaming so id say it works like 95% of the time, in the week and a half i camped argus i didnt get all claims because most of the time i was at work, one time i had to go to work at 12pm right when the window open so i came back from work not knowing when the heck was the tod so i had to assume it could of sapwn at 12:01 and i started camping from 6:01 am and stoped at 11 pm at night when it spawn so i camped all those hrs and i dont mean afk i mean moving around voke at the ready, to make a long story short the reward is worth it i got my charm on the third fight and then next day another one for my friend so i am now 2/4 on argus and i plan to keep it that way, to all hunting good look and keep at it and Argus "See you again!". Hopefully in a long time.

I got peacock amulet about 4 months ago but i wanna share something i learned about the spawn.

Yes its an 18-30 hour spawn, but I did some research and I don't believe argus is just a "random" pop. Here's why.

I camped Argus between the months of December and and March and in that time I claimed Leech King 10 times with 3 drops, and Argus 5 times with 1 drop. I had seen around 24 spawns of both combined, so i lost 9 claims. And in that time I noticed something interesting.

A lot of people had speculated in the past that the Protozoan was a placeholder for Argus, but that was ruled out when people timed the death of the protozoan and repops, as well as left Protozoan alone and Argus/LK still popped. However I don't think people had checked Widescan enough to notice one little discreptancy.

Now its been 4 months since I camped, so I might have it backwards, but when I did the camp I noticed that when the Protozoan was spawned in the bone house, or had been killed there before pop, Leech King would spawn 100% of the time. Vica Versa if the Protzoan was roaming the large room before the old pop room, or had died before pop in that region, then Argus would pop ( again I repeat I might have it backwards) 100% of the time.

So i payed more attention to widescan and I noticed something funny. When the protozoan was up in the bone house, he appeared in the exact location that Argus would appear on widescan, but if he was roaming he appeared where leech king would appear on widescan (as an fyi Leech King appears in the middle of the poison leeches on widescan so thats the way to check whether or not I have this backwards). Now I cant say that its true, but I have 100% test rate for it so far so I hope it helps people out.
probably shouldnt' tell people this

Good idea. This makes sense to me, but I think it's the other way around. When the Protozoan appeared in the Bone House it showed up at the bottom of the Wide Scan list. Which is to say that it would 'show' that Leech King pops around there, whereas the other area that that Protozoan showed on the list would connotate to Argus. I could be wrong, or mistaken, but I think this is starting to make a bit of sense. Now if only we could get a confirmation on this. Perhaps we are heading in the right direction on fully understanding this monster's appearance habbits.

One last question: Has anyone ever seen enough pops to know the areas that Argus will pop? And does he still pop in the small room with the two bats? Good luck to everyone camping this NM.

Ok, so i'm in the maze with the only person besides this jpn nin who killed LK 29 hours ago, that knows the time of death. Hes a 75thf with TH4, and we agreed to help each other, he has to log 28 hours after last tod, so i'm left as the only one knowing Argus will spawn soon.

Meanwhile, a warrior that killed him a few nights ago is here, actively camping, and a nin, brd, and drg in the same party show up, the nin has a amulet already, but helping someone else get it. Then theres a blm who was there not moving for the whole time i and the thf were there. He started camping 18 hours after last tod. A whm who showed up later in the night was also there, seemingly afk.

29 hours after last tod, i'm talkin smack to that party in hopes they give up as they dont even know tod, im only one in argus room, had been for like an hour, runnin back and forth through the hallway. I run up beside the blm to check the big room, and then that blm all of a sudden runs straight behind me and stuns argus, gets his npc out and nuked him down.

So I was there for 10 hours, with this blm not moving once until argus spawned behind him, out of his viewing range, and claimed him, within the first 2 seconds he popped as I barely stopped to check that big room.

How unfair is this game anyways?

Took my 61thf/30nin out there and decided to set up camp, turns out by the time I got out of school his window was open. Waited around for 6 hours or so when this BLM asked for help with her RSE key, I said sure why not and told her to keep an eye out for a hecteyes while i killed goblins and such, it popped right on her and she claimed with stun. I about crapped my pants, especially when I saw 'You find a Peacock Amulet on the Argus.' 1/1 ^^v

Here's the scoop, been camping this NM for about a month so far and as of tonight I am 0/5 on Argus and 1/4 on LK. Combined totals I have spent camping put me at at least 75 hours (that's real life hours) of total camping time. Not only will this thing not drop the Amulet but the Bloodbead Earring I got refuses to sell. I just seem to have horrible luck it would seem.

Some Observations:
Most of the time for me the window has been during some obscure hour of the night and into the morning. In general people tend to not stay at their keyboard nonstop for the 12 hours, especially if they don't know the actual ToD. I would recommend that if you do get a ToD you watch TV or something of the sort while you camp, it really helps to pass the time. All of my kills have been as a THF58/RNG12 so both LK and Argus are weak sauce. Widescan helps alot with knowing when/if LK popped and I would highly recommend it.

1/1 Argus
# May 31 2006 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
I'm experience irrational exuberence still, but I'll do my best from turning this post into "OMG I GOT FIRST TRY I PWN NOOBS KTHXBAI" type of thing. Recently I've been spending a lot, and I mean a lot, of time in the Maze. 2 people from my LS wanted Ruby's and I was in a helping mood, and I like being in Leech King room on the very rare off chance he pops.

So we get their rubys and they leave, I bump into some kind people who politely asked for help getting a key and finding chest for RSE, I wasn't in the mood to level anyway so I helped them. In the meantime I began to chat it up with a 75WAR Zealot who was camping Argus. He shared with me that he believed it was Argus' window, I had never claimed Argus before, let alone seen him spawned.

So another person from my LS asks if they can come and me get them a ruby. 4 friggin hours pass until it finally drops at about 5AM, only for me to find that my LS friend fell asleep and his inventory was full fo Fiend Blood, so when I QM'ed it to him he didn't get it. I decided to check out Argus camp and Zealot was still there. He told me if I put my filters on and went AFK there I could get an estimate of ToD. I tried that, woke up the next morning with no clue of anything lol.

So my LS friend from the previous night appologized for falling asleep and thanked me for the time I spent there, so I offered to try again. Another LS member came with us who also needed and was nuking the leeches in the first half of the map, while I was killing the ones in LK room. 2 rubys drop within 30 minutes so everyone's happy. I have to thank Kwane, a taru RDM who was at Argus camp...because if he wasn't there I more than likely would have become bored and went AFK or warped.

But for some reason I ended up staying two hours there. I don't even know why I did, I really didn't care about the amulet. For me it's more of a status item rather than the stats since my highest melee job is 18 WAR...well my 26 NIN would eventually use it. So I'm literally just about to give up and right next to me Argus pops. I was at the end of the tunnel coming out of the small room where Argus used to only pop. Zealot reacted rather slowly or didn't notice since he was in the middle of the big room, and I claimed with Dia II.

With no buffs on he hit me for about 10-20 damage as 68 RDM, I threw up Phalanx and he couldn't hurt me. I chainspell Water III'ed his *** and before even waiting to see the drops I went to equip and neck pieces to see if anything was listed there and there it was! My Peacock Amulet!

I have to say I feel bad for a couple reasons though. My 75 RL SAM friend asked me to keep his character logged in there since I said I was gonna give it to him if by some chance I claimed and got drop, but this visit was spur of the moment so he wasn't there. Also Zealot was there for a number of days, nothing I can do now but wish him luck in getting his amulet, he did though appropriately wish for me to burn in hell, etc.

Anyway, I feel obligated to level a melee job to make use of this gift from God, I just gotta decide which one hehe. I've been playing this game since NA release and this is probably the best event to happen to me, I've never gotten lucky with such an NM and getting the drop. Camping Argus is a *****, but the joy in even seeing him pop, let alone claiming him, let alone getting the drop...I can't describe it.

Now that I'm done with my story, some information based on what I read here, have seen personally and close friends who camped.

Argus is indeed 18-30 hours, no more, no less. His window is shared with Leech King, each of whom have a seemingly equal chance of popping. I looked at all the ToD and next spawns I could find from people's info on this site and talking to friends, while Argus/LK can pop 18-30, they have a tendancy to pop between the 20-24 hour mark. This is just something I noticed adding the numbers together, if you camp only 20-24 you're only camping 4/12 hours it can pop and will likely miss it.

There is no way to tell which NM will pop next, in most people's cases they are there strictly for the Peacock Amulet. If LK pops instead a 3 mil earring if it drops is an decent consolation prize, but on my server at least no one camps inside LK room, they all stay and Argus and periodically check in LK...assuming they don't have Widescan to check.

From talking to people on my server, LK popped a couple days ago, followed by Argus, and the Argus that I got tonight. It's extremely possibly Argus can pop a third time in a row, I however plan to be semi-AFK inside LK room, making an educated guess that he will pop tomorrow. If I'm correct and he does pop I should have little trouble getting the claim. Bloodbead Earring is 3 mil on my server with none on sale tonight, so perhaps I can raise to 3.5ish and afford an HQ staff.

I'll probably find a friend who wants a Peacock Amulet to come along and have them camp Argus while I'm camping LK. I was one of those players who thought camping Argus was impossible, that I'd never claim or even see him. Granted, I did have a lot of luck...a lot...it's far from impossible. Due to the large window a lot of campers AFK frequently or aren't paying close attention, so claiming shouldn't be too hard if you're focused.

Knowing the window in this case doesn't help *too* much, it's still 12 hours that it can pop. Good luck, godspeed to anyone camping. Hope you get your amulet Zealot.

Argus or Leech King will pop from 18 to 30 hours after time of death.

There's pretty much no way to which one will pop, they both have a 50/50 chance.
So if Argus pops four times in a row, good chance it's going to be Leech King next, but never-the-less Argus could still pop.

Argus can pop anywhere in the room where Protozoan pops through the corridor to the room with bats, Alla's map is out-dated.

He may only be lv.37 however he can be a tough fight. Most melees could probably win at about lv.45+, shadows would help. Lv.50+ you should have no problem.

Drop-rate I would say approxiamtely 1/8. Just roguh numbers.

Say you're flipping a coin, it comes up heads 100 times in a row. What is the chance it will come up heads the next time? 50%

I doubt this person actually checks this post but the odds are 50% that heads would be the next one, but the odds of getting heads 101 times in a row are almost impossible.

I *could* use this as an alternative to the all so expensive Scorpion Harness. Could a level THF59/NIN29 solo this? or would I need a friend?
can we?

They spawn every Earthsday??? What are you talking about? Argus/Leech King are an 18-30 hour spawn. I've killed Argus 3 times and seen LK spawn twice. That's the window. It isn't 12 hours later, that's for sure. It's 18 hours later, then 12 hour pop window.

My advice for campers: you'll never even get ToD, let alone a chance to camp Argus during the pop window, if you don't have another person to cover LK's spawn point... unless you wanna spam Wide Scan for 30 hours.

Oh how wrong you are, Left my computer on overnight in the maze, dont see argus on chatlog, waited 1 more hour (alone) and see leech king on widescan, and now I have ToD. I may have been lucky, but it was a boldy wrong statement for you to say "you'll never get ToD, let alone a chance to camp argus during to pop window".
