Me and my g/f were farming bird bloods here today and decided to kill pugs to pop him also. killed 3 pugs and when they respawned guess who?! killed him easy with bst/nin and dnc/nin both 30. Got the drop ^_^ tried to pop him again for about an hour and no sign, kille dpugs every time they popped.

I was in Buburimu farming Bird Blood, figured I would kill pugs in between leech spawns and try to pop the NM. Took around fifteen minutes, 10 seconds to kill. I got the Gorget, doubt it's worth much. I was DRG 58 / THF 15.

It popped again an hour later, I'd only killed about 10-15 pugs in this time. No drop.

Last Quarter, 4:30 on Firesday


Decided to camp this guy to waste some time. Took forever for him to pop. It sounds like TH2 helped. Either that or finally a lucky one for me. I think I will skip ever camping this guy again.
stumbling around

about 2 hours ago i was running around this beach killings pugs as a <WAR36/MNK18> to skill up my Gaxe. What i didnt know was that this guy spawns here. So im just randomly killing stuff and someone goes "what does it drop?". i look up and i read the name <Buburimboo>. im thinking WTF?? so i check it and sure enough its a NM. Killed it fairly easily but no drop oh well doesnt look all that interesting to me anyways.
WOW. -.-

He like, refuses to pop. Been killing all three Shoal Pugils for almost two hours now. >.> No one camps him, so what gives? Was doing it for fun but this is so not worth it, and when he does finally pop I know I won't get the drop... X3 It's just personal now.
could of been worse

Ah, crap...

Killed this guy, popped around 20:00 or 19:00 on a Darksday.. it may be lottery because I killed a ton of stuff before killing him but I dont think so, I think he pops once every day either near the end of the day or near the beginning. This was probably the first Notorious Monster I've fought that doesn't have anything to do with a quest, and actually drops something worthwhile, and yet...

No drop. I took a ton of pictures that of which I will put up later. He hit me about 26 HP per hit, no buffs on because when I just saw him I was all "ZOMG" and attacked him. I'll be more prepared the next time.

When i cane to level in the lab of onzozo i was waiting for my party members. I got bored so i started shooting everything in sight. Then our PLD said "Guys help him kill this NM" I was like what? And when i killed the pug i looked closy at his name and sure enough it was the NM. I got no drop but it was pretty funny imo. ^^

Gorget gives a bunch of elemental boosts, sells for 15k. May sound nice for a few new people, but don't camp this guy all day.

I fought bubu about 5 times now , still no drop. Not the best drop rate. Don't recommend fighting him till at least level 35, had a hard time at lvl32 war. Good for someone who wants to start in nm hunting,gorget drop sells for about 6k-7k on leviathan. Spawn rate is about a little over 1hour to an hour an a half. Just keep killing the 3 shoal pugils(placeholders)for bubu to pop. Good luck and happy nm hunting!

i tend to play late nites and early mornings. i have a passion for hunting NM's. actually it seems to be the only thing i ever do. ever since i reached lvl 45 thf i havent stopped hunting. in my personal quest to scratch off another nm on my list i go to hunt Bubu. again its about 5 am cst so i figure the beach will be empty. sure enough it is. my priority to lure out Bubu was to kill the pugils then snippers. it seems as tho there are only 3 pugils out at a time. maybe 4. all i did was kill these in rapid succesion.
the first time i got him i didnt even notice until he was down in HP's by half. you dont even need rng to widescan really. just run up and down the beach, kill, repeat.
i have killed Bubu about 5 times now without getting a drop. but he only seemed to take around 1 hr and 30 min to spawn each time. just be patient but be quick. hope this helps.
happy hunting.

again it was late in the nite. actually it was early in the morning. which ever floats your boat.
anyways, upon hunting this guy again i see this taru killing leeches. im a 45 thf and a good guys so i ask if he'd like me to help out. he agrees. we join up and i tell him i'm also in the process of hunting this NM. 2 mins later he pops and the gorget drops. the little guys had no problem with me taking it.
we continue killing leeches when i offer to assist him in getting a gorget too. so we keep killing the shoal pugs as well.
no more than an hour later Buburimboo pops again. no drop...
we still havent gotten a damn ruby from the leeches so we continue as b4.
again 1 hour later he pops. and drops a gorget for the taru. we were pretty happy, but the poor guy never got a ruby that early morning. we hunted for 1 for 4 hours...
oh well...
Happy hunting!

I didn't even know about this guy until last night. I was goofing around killing pugils with a friend when suddenly we got an add. Not having ever seen the shoal pugils link, I found it rather strange but didn't thin we were in danger. We killed the pug that we had started before I realized that this was a NM, and we ended up zoning into the labrynth. On our way to the zone my friend took a screwdriver for a measly 130 hp, so we figured we'd have no problem with this guy if we were fully rested. He was still on the beach when we came back so we engaged and as it turned out we had a rather difficult time of it relative to what we expected. I was out of mana and my friend was down to 200 hp by the time we beat it. We got a water crystal. For all that work we expected at least a water crystal AND a handful of pugil scales :p I was lv 27 whm/blm and my friend was lv 26 mnk/war. I received 120 xp, so I think that puts him at lv 32.

I was here to camp him, mainly for a pic for my NM hunter ls web page, took about 1hour or so, me 29Thf ( de lvld a bit ago ><) and 44 Drk took it, easy fight, and it dropped on first kill. Too bad its a horible item and horrible sell.

odd name for a fish

# Mar 23 2004 at 9:55 AM Rating: Decent
I was here for a few days with some friends in my LS, and there is one in particular that was lagging in WHM equipment. We were camping with my level 15 sub thf, looking for Carbunkle's Rubys from the leeches on the beach. I ended up finding one for everyone in the party in a matter of 3 hours.

All the while I was killing the Buburimbu. I noticed the spawn time was very constant, usualy after daybreak, and either every hour or every other hour. It only skipped an hour once of the six times I killed it. Unfortunately this day I had no luck.

I returned the next day for one more ruby for a friend of mine, when I saw the Buburimbu. I firmly believe in the full moon theory because when we killed it it droped the rare item.

Feelling pretty lucky, I ran up the cliff to where the Helldiver spawns, killed a couple place holders and it spawned right away, killed it, got the boomberang (whatever it's called)

Both work on the place holder theory, both are level 28-30 mobs, the Gorget sells for 10K the boomerang for 5K, I recomend these NM's to anyone with litle NM experience, they were not over camped at all.

Good luck!

I just received this item by killing a regular Shoal Pugil not Buburimboo so I guess all the pugils there have a chance of dropping the gorget.
kill the fish
# Feb 02 2004 at 11:48 PM Rating: Decent
Ive killed 5 times in last few days no drops any time not even a pugil scale he spawn right on the beach at north end same spot everytime 2hour spawn time (aprox).
