Quu Domi the Gallant

All right - He actually has a PH, if you saw Quu Domi and the PH that means you had the wrong PH.

The Placeholder can be anything and he is roaming around...you can easily say which one it is because he is the only one running around, through the water, up on the middle, walking down to the water again ...and so on.

Well this Yagudo will respawn every 12 min. BUT, if Quu Domi spawns it will only take 5 mins. after this Yagudo died. So watch out 5 mins. after you killed this Yagudo, Quu Domi might pop - unfortunatly in the whole area...so if you are not alone its still more luck then knowing when to be alerted.

I camped this NM years ago for one month between Mee Deggi spawns and got like 5 pairs of Fuma Kyahan and a lot of O.Kote (12 Kote in 1 Month). Back in the days he spawned in the middle and i just had to be faster than any other...i wished they would change that back ; ;


since im back on ffxi, i camped him twice, got him twice, got no drop so far - just Strider Swords.

the NM's Quu Domi the Gallant -and- Mee Deggi the Punisher CAN and probably in most cases if not all DO pop in exactly 5 mins after the ph it finally is going to replace dies. Some of yall may disagree w/ me but this has been the case on all 5 Deggi kills and all 12 Quu kills.

Not 30 min ago I watched as Quu spawned with the PLACEHOLDER UP. So.. yeah. The placeholder isn't the PH anymore. I mean, how can it be the PH when it AND the NM is up? Perhaps the former PHs are still related to NMs spawn requirements, but they aren't PHs for the NMs any longer. I tend to lean towards being related, because Quu did spawn seconds after the "PH" did. Mee was spawning after the "PH" was killed too by 6 to 8 minutes. I'm undecided, but my current guess is these spawns are independent now or the NM can spawn at any time after the "PH" is killed up to the point of it re spawning. So essentially a person might need to be on full alert the entire time they are camping instead of once every 12 minutes.

Please read if you want claim and drop

Ok i finished camping these and got drop prolly a week or two ago ( 1/12 ) and theres something I learned that I'm going to share with yall b/c someone -really- should have posted this by now.

The repop on the yags are of course 12 mins (no thats not it), the NM's Quu Domi the Gallant -and- Mee Deggi the Punisher CAN and probably in most cases if not all DO pop in exactly 5 mins after the ph it finally is going to replace dies. Some of yall may disagree w/ me but this has been the case on all 5 Deggi kills and all 12 Quu kills.

I say this b/c when you think you got 12 mins of downtime, you don't. The 2 of my 3 not claims were due to this, i was actually dead alone fishing and he popped 5 mins after the first one i killed (2 game hours) and someone cooincidentally just walked in. By the time i pulled up my rod, claim. Best of luck, and happy hunting!

I'm 0/8 on this thing, and I guess that isn't too bad considering there are people 0/40+ ~.~ I just hope I don't get there myself.

But as for my strategy, I've been going in /RNG and using WS to locate the 'Place Holder' and I've been waiting and killing that and usually if the NM is going to pop it's going to pop 5-7 mins after the PH ToD. If it doesn't, in 12 mins the PH would respawn. That has been the case 99% of the time, however the other day I was WSing and then saw the PH pop, so I run down to kill it ... and before it's even dead Quu Domi spawned right next to me, and before I could disengage someone else provoked it >.< They didn't get the drop, which is a relief to me because i would have died if I had been so close lol.

But in short, nothing is set in stone about this NM, apparently it can do whatever it wants.

Edit: I'm now 0/20 on this... It seems I'm on my way to 0/40+ ~.~

Edit2: I've finally gotten these!!! 1/26! The NM seems to pop 2-4 minutes before the PH is due to respawn. Although I have seen it spawn 10 minutes before the PH was supposed to and about a minute after the PH spawned. But I have also come to the conclusion that this NM will just not spawn unless the PH is killed, even though it may spawn with the PH at times.

Good luck everyone, and keep trying!

well heres my story......

was camping Okotes an killed Mee Degi... 0/4 overall, i know not near what anyone else is but im working on it haha. Went over to this one for the heck of it cuz i have never camped before, an ran around for about 10 mins an it popped. Got the claim and it Mijin Gakure and laid down with about 2% health left, got back up an i hit it one more time to death. And..... Got the drop! so amazingly 1/1 on seeing killing an getting drop on this badboy. well back to mee degi LOL!
Can I cry yet?

Well, I think I have the worst luck ever with NM drops. I went 0/44 on this (including 0/16 in one day) over the course of 8 days. I have taken a few months off and started camping it again; I still have yet to get the drop. 0/50+ and I stopped counting so I do not get mad. I have tried this with 1 and 2 THFs with TH4, TH most definitely has no effect on drop rate. To make matters worse... I am 0/37 on O.Kotes. Thought you all would get a laugh out of that.

Edit: OMG, I finally got drop today. Oddly enough, it did not 2-hour. Went 1/3 on my RDM/WHM of all jobs. Now to get O.Kotes...

I finally got the sarutobi kyahan today going 1/12 of the drops. I have been down in castle oztroja for about 5-6 days going for the O kotes and the kyahan. I got the O kotes about 2 days ago making me 1/12 on that as well.

This morning I logged on to find no one there, cleared the room, waited for repops, started clearing again and then saw him pop a short distance infront of me (it had only been 20 mins since I logged on). Because I was alone, I held him for 8 minutes before I started killing him. He did 2hr. The weird thing is, I did the exact same thing with mee deggi when I got the O kotes (held him for about 8 minutes because I was alone). If it is any concern, I got the drop on the kyahan on Full Moon (98%), and the drop on the O kotes on New Moon (2%)

What lvl do you need to be to get these and what lvl do the mobs arro in the area where Quu Domi pops?
Quu Domi Difused

I can personally testify to the rumor that killing The Gallant before it uses Majin Gakure increases your chances of the Sarutobi Kyahan's dropping.

Went in as a 60MNK early last month and camped it on and off for the last 30 days with 10 Strider Swords to boast until today, when for the hell of it, I Hundred Fisted and squeezed in a Raging Fist, difusing any chance of his explosion and out popped a pair of shiney new kyahans.

Cut the fuse - you might have a chance!

I too can finally leave this hell hole :) I got my Sarutobi Kyahan, I'm 2/12 on drops, 1 of the drops it was 4 of us camping and we let a friend have them...
I logged on at about 11:30pm on Wednesday 9/12/07 and as soon as i logged on there were about 4 people waiting for Quu Domi to pop, which was kinda weird being that lateley there has been barely anyone there....so i decided to give him a shot. It was about 12:15AM (9/13/07) and still no pop... and now we were down to about 3 of us. I figured great i have no idea on the last TOD so i wondered this must be one of those longer pop times, maybe 2-3hrs..... I decided to stand by the bridge leading to the center island....i figured if it popped anywhere near me i could throw up /flee and have a chance as a rdm/thf. Finally at about 12:45am he popped... there was another rdm there fighting a Drummer who didn't notice it pop near him....I didn't even use flee, i just walked right up to him (which seemed like forever) and casted DIA as soon as i got close enough. No one seemed to notice that he finally popped until maybe 1-2minutes into fight....Once again like i had done with Mee Deggi, i only casted Tier 1 magic (fire, wind, blizzard, etc) and he did use his 2hr....Finally i saw "You find a pair of Sarutobi Kyahan on Quu Domi the Gallant" and of course "Azurian obtains a Pair of Sarutobi Kyahan"..../cheer and /hurray lol
Finally out of this hell hole :) Now which NM should i farm next....

PH theory is fake
# Jul 15 2007 at 5:01 AM Rating: Decent
Last 6 Quu Domi pops for me have been within 5 mins of killing the PH.
I no longer believe the PH theory, I am well versed in it, and I was killing the correct Yagudo.

Let it be known. Either the theory is fake or Quu can pop ANY TIME after PH dies.

PH theory is correct, imo. For Quu Domi you don't have to kill PHs, but it helps. He'll spawn regardless if PH is killed or not.
# Jul 09 2007 at 5:58 AM Rating: Decent
i camped this nm for 4 hours with no pop

then went to bathroom came back and there he was at this time it was liek 5:30 am and i am god damn tired

PH Confirm also

I can confirm that the PH method is indeed correct, except for one tiny detail. The normal yag PHs do indeed pop 12 RL minutes after, or to be more precise at the start of the next minute rounded up. So it seems more like 13min, but it's actually 12.

Anyhow, on Q., he does NOT follow the 12 minute spawn timer. Confirmed this tonight, after just over an hour of camping, he popped exactly 8 minutes after I killed his PH. Luckily, I had scan, and he was in a corner, so I got to him before the WAR and NIN camping did.

My suggestion is an hour after you have slaughtered him, keep your eyes open from there on out.

PH confirm
# Jun 17 2007 at 1:14 PM Rating: Decent
1/3, got drop on Full Moon, if that matters.

I can pretty much confirm the PH on this one.

Killed PH, a yagudo oracle, at 4:44 game time on firesday.

at 9:44 exactly, Quu Dommi popped. Either this is an astonishing coincidence, or there is in fact a PH, and this is the one.
