I was trying to get a magicked skull for myself and my LS friend (for ToAU pass) in gusgen when he says this guy's name in party chat. I got that rush of adrenaline that I always get when I see a NM and rushed towards him. I was BLM54/THF27 (for TH) at the time and he was MNK40/WAR20. I didn't have much mp left from killing all of the skeles, so thinking it would be easy I went up to it and starting casting Freeze for ***** and giggles...bad idea. Took off a little over 1/4 of it's HP and I was down to about 50 MP. Not good. The MNK panics and slaps on his 2 hour and starts wailing on it. He managed to take hate away from me but then started to get his *** kicked. I begin to spam cure on him, but only got about two Cure IIIs (thank you Conserve MP!) before I was out. Then I look into my JAs to use my 2 hour and I notice it is still down from using Mijin Gakure on my nin to get back to jeuno >_< . So I sat down and rested and watched as the MNK and this ******* go neck and neck. It was an even match between them. Then PP used some kind of AoE skill (forgot the name) and knocked the MNK into red HP. The AoE missed me, and I managed to get one last tick enough for another Cure III. We make it out of the fight barely...it drops a luminicloth and cotton cloth. LOL
A Good Workout

Just squeaked through this fight as DRG44/THF16, wearing the Cuir set and Attack/STR+ accessories, with Peregrine. The fight wasn't too bad, started the fight at full HP with my wyvern, got him to about 50% or so before he got me <100hp, hit spirit surge to get my hp back and some other goodies, jumped him for defense down, pulled off two double thrusts before it wore off, by that time I was around 200hp, he was hovering at 10% or so, Eisenzahn and I finished him off with me at about 70hp. Got 43xp for my troubles, along with an ice crystal, square of cotton cloth and the malfrost ring.

In an attempt to at least tick me off before he died, he threw a curse on me, ten minutes later I'm still sitting with my max hp about 200 under where it should be >.>

PS - Oh, and I stole another cotton cloth on him during the fight. Take that! :-P

Was helping a friend get tele-holla and heard the whistle go off so i went to see if he was there, sure enough he was, didn't buff just started wacking him with my buzzard tuck, tossed on slow/para/blind for good measure, refreashed and stoneskin/phlanix. whm was like lvl 38 using his club (like 1-3 dmg per hit, thanks for the help....) tore him up, didn't take really any dmg after the fight i was down like 30hp and 100 mp. (i did have to recast Stoneskine like 2-3 time though)

No ring, just cloth, ohh well

Ok. I was in gusgen mines helping someone get the magicked skull, and this thing pops. O.O scary. Caught totally unprepared as a 50 BLM/RDM, it murders me. So i'm back again in the mines at 53BLM/RDM, helping another friend do 3/2. I hear the siren go off, and i dash through the mines for my revenge. I find him, and claim. No buffs, no enfeebles, i just start wacking as the adrenaline kicks in. I simply build TP up, Shining Strike, throw out some Fire2's, thunder2's and a few cure3's on myself as my HP drops. My MP's dwindling now, and I 2hr with it's life at about 1/3. Swinging away, curing as needed, i use shining strike at 280 TP and kill him. ^^ Revenge is mine, and it never felt so good.

It dropped the ring, cloth and a revival tree root. /cheer!!
Sweet Revenge

Ok, level 36-38 mob. A buddy and I figured we could take this as WHM38 (me) and PLD39 (him). Wrong we were. We died. I did waste a little MP using cures on Pfeffir though.. :p

Last night, I was waiting for someone to get to Konschtat, so I could PL them, so I decided to go seek revenge. I was WHM53/SMN25 (gimped, I know. Shh. :p).

Had Protect III and Shell II on. Built my TP up to 300% with my light staff and waited about 10 minutes before I heard the eerie siren. Pfeffir sighted. Casted Blink and Stoneskin, and pulled out Ifrit. Engaged and casted Slow, Paralyze, Dia II and Silence on him.

One of the things I love about SMN sub is my self-SC/MB's. Got Ifrit to do Punch and I did Earth Crusher for a Fusion SC. MB'd it with Holy and he was down to 2/3 HP. I let Ifrit go for a while. Got up to 100% TP and pulled him out again, doing the same SC/MB. He was at about 1/3 HP now. Let Ifrit go and Cure IV'd myself, continuing to melee. Got another WS in. Didn't bother SC/MBing this time, as my MP was getting low. Divine Seal Cure III left me with 17 MP, and Pfeffir was about dead, so I finished him off with a weak Banish.

Easy fight. Though I used all of my MP, my HP never went below 50%. Only had to heal myself twice and ended with near-full HP. No drop except a cotton cloth, but revenge was mine. ;) This guy isn't worth camping for money or the drop, but look at half the NM's I've camped. I collect pictures. ;p

Edit: By the way, althought healing magic damages undead, it isn't very effective and is pretty-much a waste of MP in my opinion.

Another edit: Also, I'm not sure about the appearing at night thing. Undead are around all the time in Gusgen, obviously. What I do know is that you'll hear an eerie siren go off, and that signals that either Pulverized Pfeffir or Smothered Schmidt has spawned.

Just solo'd as 50RDM/BLM. Easy fight.
Had to convert, keep your self buffed not a hard battle, fun though. Watch out for AeroII and Paralyze. Not worth camping because the Ring only goes for a few thousand but if you see it you might want to try.

Bumped into him this morning. Kiled him as a WHM/BLM 50/25. It hurt! Partially my own fault I'll admit as I wasn't on full MP but it was nearly day and he disappears again! It came down to him or me, but I was in the red and (lol) a Bandersnatch hit me whilst healing (lol) and killed me. Couldn't stop laughing. Dropped lumnicloth and something else but no ring.

As a lvl 57WHM/BLM, I was mining and ran into this guy. I had taken him before at lvl 40 with a 62 paladin with no problem so I figured I would be ok. Stoneskin, protect, shell, haste, blink, then engaged. I had a lvl 41 rdm with me but after she casted refesh on me, I told her to run so she didn't get cursed or killed by -ga spells. I was down to half mp from all the stoneskins I had to keep recasting when he was only 1/4th of the way down. I ended up having to zone him when he was at half hp because I had 2 mp and 50 hp. I made it out with 9 hp. Luckily, his poison and shock came off of me right as I zoned. Never again will I go after him solo.

As many know these little ghosts pop up at midnight with the sirens but something people may not think about is that they sell to NPCs for about 2.5K if I remember correctly. So if your wandering around for some reason and see this ghost around might be nice to wack it.

After sweeping for a failed Eco-war, I went exploring, with the usual result: Burning up my 2-hr killing something which I shouldn't have. 47mnk/war w/ good equip, hiting for about 20 on each fist..'zerk, Counterstance & Hundred Fist upped it to 30, finished fight cursed and with 120/1076 hp left. Got a cotton cloth for my troubles.

On second thought, popping a kabob probably would have made this go a bit quicker...damn..

one tough ghost
# Aug 24 2004 at 3:15 PM Rating: Default
I fought this thing the other night because I heard the siren go off as I was mining near the entrance as a 43rdm/blm. I went in with protect, shell, stoneskin, blink, phalanx, enblizzard, and blaze spikes. I binded him and enfeeebled, and then started swinging away. The fight was going pretty slow and I was slowing running out of MP from recasting buffs and enhancements. So i elemental sealed and slept him, then converted and healed and buffed myself up again before he woke up. At this point he was halfway dead and I finished the fight with 200HP 10MP. I got over 40 exp and no ring, just a cotton cloth and revival tree root.

Good fight however, but i cant see any other job soloing it at lvl 43 besides bst.

Also drops Luminicloth.

I got a request to do BCNM40 after dinging BRD40.
At the time, I (Mithra) did not yet have my RSE. I toild the PT I needed my RSE and it happened to be Mithra week in Gusgen. Anyways, long story short, got the second key, and started running around the mines looking for a chest. While running, the WHM53 and I happen upon this ghost, not realizing he was NM and my sneak wouldn't work until it was too late.

I recast Ballad and PaeonIII, Elegy (resisted), Light threnody (landed) and she starts spamming Holy on him between curing herself.
We got him silenced, so that avoided most of his attacks, and I kept him Finale'd (He kept trying to recast Ice Spikes until we silenced him).
So ya, a BRD40 and a WHM53 were able to take him down (just barely).
Drops were some gil, a Square of Cotton Cloth, and a Square of Luminicloth. Unfortunately no Malfrost Ring.
The fight took about 5 or 6 minutes.

Also, he didn't use his Ectoplasm ability (which by the sounds of it is a very good thing)
How's it spawn?

Might anyone please tell me how this one spawns? Random? Timer? Anything? I'd probably not survive against him at my level but I feel like risking it.

I'm not sure how long of a timer he's on (somewhere around 30 min to an hour perhaps?) but he spawns pretty much in the same spot every time. Take a look at the map to get the specifics on his location.
