Just ran into this NM while doing The Hearts of Mythril quest to try and clean up my quest log a little bit. Got an insect wing and a beehive chip. What a drag.

I used a little thing called the "Auction House". It's 5k. Save the trouble.

According to wiki, you should be 16 before u are able to solo it. B u l l s h i t. Just soloed her as a 14 RNG. Heck, I could have taken her without using Eagle Eye Shot-- She has the worst Accuracy EVER. She hit me maybe 3 times, while I fed her TP she decided to just kill herself with Final Sting. I ended up with half HP because of that 65 Final Sting. Was an interesting fight. 0/2 lol xD
Seriously guys...

I camp her when I farm beehive chips because the dagger would add a nice little boost to my AH stash. It's simple. She only spawns on the second level. Kill all the bees on the second level. She'll spawn anywhere from every 1-5 times in my experience. If you're looking to make gil she's a win/win NM. If you go up there to farm and camp her she's, at the very least, guaranteed to drop a beehive chip. Dagger is going for about 5k on Pandemonium.

Help with NM

I have been stuck on this mountain looking for the NM. I went to all the spots inside the red-lined circle and killed numerous bees. The NM has yet to show. Does anyone know a more precise area it usually shows up?
my first shot

Maneating Hornets do not link.

Indeed the Maneating Hornets do not link but Stinging Sophie will as I found out. Still took her down as 12pld without much of a problem.

I was half lvling my mnk 8, half farming chips, when I see this NM out of the corner of my view, and give it a shot, as I had never heard of her before. I was like 3/4 health and got her down to 3/4 health before she proceeded to beat the @#$% outta me. It was a good effort, but since I had just used 100 fists for double agro it was not ready. From what I see, best she drops is a 10k knife.
# Jul 03 2006 at 1:40 AM Rating: Decent
i camped sophie for an hour and a half and no spawn. good thing is that i got 4 stacks of chips while camping^^
Great First NM
# Jun 18 2006 at 7:59 AM Rating: Decent
Alot of people from Bastok start with Bubbly Burnie. I went for Sophie and enjoyed the spawn time. She spawns quickly and drops commonly. I think my count is up to ten kills now. One time, I killed her, started to rest, and before my hp were back to full, she spawned again. That was a great day for ol' Luth.
Does anyone ever get the Beestinger?????

Whoo Hoo I finaly (on the 12th attempt) got the beestinger. It's as awsome as I had heard. After playing for less than an hour my dagger skill is already up to 19 from 0!!!!!

This rocks.

She's on the middle floor. 4 times I found her at the western end of the pop range and 4 times I found her on the eastern end.

Bah! I am 0/6 on Stinging Sophie, You would think I'd have it by now. Though, its nice because you can farm for chips while waiting for her.
Wide Scan

Question... do NMs such as our friend Sophie show up as themselves on 'Wide Scan' or as their base monster type?

Wide Scan works, she's just usually not up very long do to chip farmers.
