I dont care what you say, this thing is tough as hell for a level 36-38. it almost made me soil myself. I was at the time a taru lvl 48 rdm/blm when I fought him.
So to start from the beginning. I was solo'ing in gusgen mines for my skull (arth Uhrgan quest) for more than 1 hour when a low lvl galka spoted him and shouted it and its locations. Passing nearby, i saw it and decided to engage it thinking that it would only take a min or 2. Boy was I wrong. the sec I first struck him, i knew something was wrong since I couldnt even see the damage that i did to him. granted am a taru but still, that thing keep hitting me non stop while I only took inches of his hp.

Needless to say the fight was long. it lasted about 10 min. It came close sometimes when he got my hp in the yellow near red, but i managed to kill him with all my buffs (Protect 3, shell 2, stonskin, phalanx, haste, blink, blaze spikes, enblizzard)
Honeslty, the thing that saved me was my MP. Thank god it was almost full when I engaged it or i would have been forced to uses extreme measures (abilities)

just be carfull when engaging him and have a whm with you cuz he's a %^tch with all his spells (paralyze, curse, etc) but doable alone for some jobs at lvl 44+
long fight
# Oct 04 2006 at 10:50 AM Rating: Decent
So yesterday my hubby (46rdm/16thf- I know, odd combination, but we were trying to up our chances of a drop) and myself (37whm/19blm) were helping random people trying to get the skull for sub. We had split up, trying to find more ghouls and I heard him say "what's that?" and naturally, it aggroed (we heard the siren, but didn't know what it meant cause it was only the 2nd or 3rd time we've been there). So I ran back over to him and helped my hubby simply by curing him. He casted refresh on me one time, but other than that, I was fine. Of course, the nm hit me a few times, but it wasn't bad cause I had already casted stoneskin and blink on myself. It was a flippin long fight, only because Doc was the only one actually hitting it, but it was successful and dropped the cotton cloth and ring. But then those stupid bandersnatches and ghouls jumped on me when I was healing, so we couldn't even bask in the joy of killing an nm. So we had to fight the seven things that aggroed, and then another skull dropped! What are the odds.

I didn't know about casting cure 3 on it- makes sense obviously. Makes me want to go bogy hunting in the dunes.
We kicked its butt today

We kicked its butt today. Me (war 41) and my DRK friend (40) were helping another friend (WHM 38) get rank 4. and we hear the siren and coincedently start talking about this NM.He was talking about how it beat him once while he was level 32 and that we couldnt take it. well as soon as we get to the ??? i see the stupid ghost and there he goes and aggros me while my friend (drk) was making a train of bandersnatches. >.< So i start running but then the DRK casts stun on him and he turns around. So i voke it off him then take off again towards the highlands zone.then our WHM Cure IIIs it and it starts attacking her. So I run back and voke it off her again. and keep running. anyways, we all zone to the highlands, me at 280/832 hp >.<
We stay to get our HP and their MP back, thinking the stupid thing disapeared. The DRK was pissed and wanted to kill it. So long story longer, we went back in and it hadnt disapeared . it was right at the door. so the DRK starts casting spells on it. I voke it. He uses a signal pearl and Souleater. I usse Mighty Strikes and the WHM kept curing it. We kicked itsa butt and it dropped all items. an ice crystal, some cloth and the god forsaken ring. >.> it didnt take us but about 5 minutes or a bit more, to kill it.

Well, the Duo of Crystal & Yuber achieve yet another NM kill, from my solo of Wurfel with 11 HP, 0 MP, and 2 HR use finish

to a 2/1 Win over Schmidt, we've finally lived to tell the tail and not get butt raped, good thing too, since we got the Ring & some cloth out of it.

After getting killed by Crushed Krause, who spawns in the same spot as Blind Moby & Smothered Schmidt, I came back to kill Crushed Krause, thinking I had my 2hr & would nail the SOB (since I was 18min from it the first time and burned 4 hi-potions & a pamama au lait)... I got Smother Schmidt instead 1 game day later. I (soloed) killed SS using 1 hi-potion & 2hr 100 Fists & about 3 Raging Fists. This was as 46 MNK/ 23 WAR, with heavy Def. & Vit armor on. I got cotton cloth & the malaflood ring. so woot.

first a notice to all DRK : be carefull with undead NM :p

I heard something about RSE gear in Gusgen and had some spare time, so i figured i could try to get the patern. As soon as i zoned into the mines i heard the siren, a sign that a NM ghost spawned. I was bored and itching for a fight, so i go look around and eventualy come to the pond i killed Blind Moby back at lvl30.

Something looks at me from underneath the water so i target and voke (lvl50 DRK). We start fighting and all went well, when it was at around 50% health it turned freaky though, tons of tough magic and stuff. And me being a DRK couldnt 2 hour , drain or aspir it. At one point i had 30hp left, and it hit me for 15, missed its second hit and i killed it with a critical.

15hp left and no drop, great fun though. Those around 50 or under who dont have a deathwish stay clear from this (unless your PLD or something)

I've seen this guy a couple of times. My main job is 50 WHM/BLM. I saw him before when I was like 36 and my LS members told me to stay clear of him. Do anyone think I could take him at 50??

Try at 55 or higher just to be safe

I took this guy on as a lvl 52 WHM/BLM and nearly died when my backup came to the rescue. Which was a lvl 52 PLD/WAR. we almost got obliterated. My MP was low and so was hers. It left us in yellow HP. So I'd reccomend coming back when your atleast lvl 58+

I have seen this thing do a number on my friend who is a 46 THF and a 40's (had anon on) WHM. I know i won't mess with this things, especiallly since his drop blows.
too strong for a 37-38
# Jan 14 2005 at 12:42 PM Rating: Decent
This nm is so strong. I was THF39/NIN18 at the time, and was waiting for my friends to hurry up so we could get rank 4. While waiting for them, I was killing worms. I use sneak attack and trick attack, just about to kill another worm, and it spawns behind me. AGAIN. I figure with my 3 friends and I, it would die pretty quickly. well, it didnt. Our HP was even untill about 75%. my friends come, and he casts thundaga. One friend dead instantly. We continue to fight it, just cause, it looked like we were gonna win. He goes after the whm/blm, dead in very few hits. The last person left and I decide to run. I say run while I hold it, cause I have utsusemi, perfect dodge, and flee. after he gets far enough away, I use flee and run to the oldton zone. Apparently, I havent registered CoP yet, and it threw me back out. needless to say, I died pretty quickly. I don't think this NM is worth the drouble, unless you just happen to be in the area, and you're pretty high level. The ring only sells for <5K anyway.
Erm, yeah... >.>

So I mine the upper points of Gusgen because of my level and one day, I'm there, minding my own business, with the volume turned off. Though I wouldn't have really known what the sirens meant. I heard that they heralded the spawning of an NM, though I didn't know which one and in the many times I'd mined Gusgen while the sirens rang off, I'd never ran into any trouble, so like many times in the past, I ignored them. I do my usual rounds and decide to go check the point by the Oldton zone. I run down the tunnel and I see the tiny, nearly unreadable letters of a mob name. All I could tell that it was in two parts, but because of the darkness I couldn't see which one it is, so I assume it's a skelly warrior or something. I continue running down the tunnel and then I stop, seeing for the mob clearly for the first time. A ghost, I look at it's name and I can immediately recognize it for an NM. I check it and its confirmed, I contemplate my ability to take it on, but my decision is made up for me because at that moment it decides to aggro me. I go >.< and run for the zone, I coulda gone for the Oldton one, but for some reason I go for the Konschtat one >.> I'm in full field gear and I have my trusty gaxe, I stop once to take a few swings at it, the thing is stupid and I manage to get it to half its HP when I just KNOW that I'm not going to win so I zone. I heal and then I go back inside, see that it's gone and I go back to where I found him and I see an Elvaan corpse near the Oldton zone instead. He told me that he was trying to do the Blade of Death quest and the ghost NM aggroed and smacked him good. But when I tried searching it out again it was gone =(
whooped him

5hp and 12mp and i got a malflood ring , cotton cloth a revival root .
Sad Story
# Dec 10 2004 at 8:36 AM Rating: Decent
After reading all of these posts, I feel better knowing that im not the only one who ran into this guys not know that he would be there while doing my mission 3-2 for Bastok. Im a Galka lvl 40PLD/20WAR, with great gear on so I decide, hey i have undead killer and this think is suppose to be lvl39 max, so i went for it,..bad mistake tried everthing in the book, (besides zoning it) Got it down to 1/4 its hp, but it cursed me and destroyed me with spells, i had to bloodport back to jueno. Its a sad story.
My story
# Nov 27 2004 at 1:14 AM Rating: Decent
I (lv.50 paladin) brought my friend (lv.33 drk) in here to get his RSE gloves and to do the Bastok mission. We go in and I see this ghost who's bigger than he should be and has an odd name. I tried to bring up the site to check his stats before I recklessly charge in but my friend got aggroed so I had to attack it and hope for the best. We eventually beat it but it did put up a good fight. Cursed both of us. No drop though.

Really surprised me though as I had never heard of it before and had no idea of what to expect
My sad story
# Nov 08 2004 at 1:57 AM Rating: Decent
- this is my first story -
i wanted to do the 3-2 bastok quest: kill blind moby. so me (31rdm/blm) and a friend (18mnk/whm) go strolling in to gusten (i have only been there once for eco-quest that went well so no bad exp YET.) we get agroed a couple of times on the way there but we get to the pool, down to 25% mp/hp i wanted to rest, when i hear a crazy noise. as soon as i ask my friend "what the hell was that" he was dead and i followed very quickly after. so there is my sad story so when you hear the sirrens run.
drop also

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.
