2 Minute Spawn

FUNNY STORY ~ So i was farming rams in the highlands which i do if i only have like an hour to play. Anyway, my friend and I teamed up to split stuff half and half. I was well aware where Mary popped so I made sure to look for her occasionally. Well push comes to shove I see her on scan and run for like 10 minutes and win the claim. My friend returns from camping VE right after i tell him i got her. No drop :( Here's the kicker...as my friend was coming back to my pop he says "Mary!!@!" I say "pfft...shut up" cause I was all depressed about no drop. Then i see on my window "You find a Mary's Milk on the Stray Mary" O.o That's right, she popped in less than 2 minutes. A 2 MINUTE RESPAWN ON STRAY MARY. well that made my day even though neither dropped w/ TH2 on.
1 Horn 5 Kills

First off this is an easy camp for anyone with a RNG or BST, widescan is very useful as the spawn area is huge. I hunted Stray Mary for about 10 hours and killed Mary 5 times in this period, I did not kill any other sheep but simply stood near the mountain in the middle of the spawn area and checked widescan every 5 seconds. I killed Mary as a 43 RNG/21 THF 5 times, 4 Milks Dropped and finally on the 5th kill the Horn dropped, the BRD in my SP was very excitied when he check is delivery box the next day and found the gift I spent him. During the time I was there I kept record of spawn times quickest I got was 1H 50MIN and slowest was 2H 20MIN, 4 spawns in F-8 alone toward the southern part of the grib block and 1 in F-7, I do not know if the is was random or that Mary tends to spawn there more often, I would cheat to the south a bit when I noticed other camping her and I was able to get to her first. the key to NM camping is pantients and persistences.

Kill Mary
# Oct 10 2004 at 12:52 PM Rating: Decent
I hunted this damnedable beast for 5hr's yesterday...I had to Flee my *** off to get her cause there was like 5 others trying to kill the damnedable beast the 1st time she spawned was at (F-6) but did'nt get there in time so i did'nt kill her but everytime after that i got her,she dropped milk and one horn.It was fairly ez after the 1st one so i think i might continue to kill this beast hopefully i'll have the same luck... so far she has spawned like 1hr then like 25min later then 25min later then like 1hr and 30min hopefully i will be able to find some sort of a pattern to this spawn but i highly dout it...... good luck to all that try to hunt this NM.....
first time to kill

I'm 1/2 On Mary. Every time I've seen her I've been in G-9. She usually pops in the center of the pos.

Bring wind crystals to synth sheep wool while hunting! It'll keep your inventory alot more free and raise your leatherworking at the same time!
Quite a skank this one...

I've gotten Mary 17 times so far. the first 16... yes, 16 straight times, never got a Horn. 50THF by the way. Finally, my 17th time, it drops the horn that my BRD lacks. BRD is 61 and never had Mary's Horn until that point. Never really needed it though, but yeah. I've found it spawn in ALL areas in radius of F/G-5/9. Except G-5, every other square had a spawn. Time of spawn was 1-2 hrs for me. But lately, ever since a few days ago, I've not seen Mary spawn at all for many hours.

Ok this happened a few days ago, my girl decided to start leatherworking and I was into helping her so I went to farm some sheeps, first I went to la thiene to try out some sheeps and maybe a ram or two anyways I was my PLD/RNG (forwidescan of course) and I went to farm, about 2 hours in I only got some measly wind cluster (6) and like 3 sheepskins also some time in I cought a lambert and he was generous with his horn and 2 skins, So I decided to quit after, I called up the local whm and went to dem...Bout 20 mins I was in I caught a glimps of mary at F-6 I ran like the wind for her hoping she wasnt taken, I was ecstatic when she wasnt I did flash asap and got her, I was 0/1 now but I did get some milk and a skin for my girl, okay another hour+ I was in hunting sheeps and rams, I find mary once again 0/2 on horn now, Then my girl got back from school and she was in Dem, a hour in of hunting sheeps and rams she caught a Rampaging ram that dominated 2 people and was about 50% life, she killed it and the ram forked over his Horn another horn and 3 skins (what a fat ram) she let me get the other horn (love increses by .9) then, I started killing a junkload of sheeps aroung F-6 and F-7 for skins, I told her that mary pops around there so she decided to rest and kill sheeps around that area I went off for a sheep at about F-9 and ran back up to check on her, Next thing I know my babe went /p :o and that moment I checked and saw yet mary again on my widescan she told me she got it, befor I got there she already killed it and I started looking at things going into a pot and there it was Marys horn 1/3 and I didnt even kill her my girl let me take the horn Sold for150k she only wanted 50k I gotanice 100k to myself +18 ram skins and 8 ram horn and lumber/rampaging horn for belt, So theres my story, Mary was a generous sheep to help a couple out, Man I love my girlfriend, Im marrying that Mithra :D Thanks Mary for your help paying for the wedding :P

The spawn is about 2hrs but she spawns at another posistion also.I think its f-5 but mostley she will pop at f-9
Does this thing actually exist?
# Oct 01 2004 at 12:41 AM Rating: Decent
What is the freaking spawn rate of this thing? I've spent like 6 hrs and no spawn; either that or I'm the worlds most unlucky thf in all of Carbuncle. Granted I don't take a lot of time to hunt NMs (no patience), but the gil is low and I need quick gil so why not kill mary. I mean I never really see anyone camping her, until it's like 5-10 minutes before she spawns. if anyone knows please send me a msg.

World: Carbuncle

Took me about ten hours of camping before I saw her the first time. That wasn't continuous, just overall. But then I saw her twice in fairly quick succession. I have no idea what the spawn rate is. As far as I know it's a lottery pop, which means you just kill all the sheep you can find and hope the next one that pops is Mary. Could be anywhere anytime.
OMG!!! Finally!!!

Soooo... I've got the "post-Genkai 1 blues" as I've coined it.

Waiting on static to have last member caught up to level more, I've been spending all my money leveling crafting. Now completely broke... I started leveling all my other jobs. Got everything to Lv 7 minimum (all jobs). That sure doesn't help the pocketbook... thank god I'm a packrat, and have a mule with tons of old equipment that I could use. Anyhow... having just leveled BRD to 8... the last one I leveled... and not finding it utterly boring (there are worse, to me, a mage by nature anyhow). So, having been in a few BCNMs at Lv 40, and seeing the importance of a BRD there, and hearing FABULOUS tales of this NMs drop for the lullaby, I figure it's gotta be worth having around... but no way in hell am I gonna "lend" it out... I only know one BRD 40+ that well... and Song is rarely around anymore, if ever.

Sooo... guess I'll be leveling BRD higher on my list now. ROFL.

Long story, sorry, I'm long-winded.

Sooooo RDM51/RNG25 subbed for WS. I Chocobo out from Sandy, scanning thru La Thiene hoping for a Lambert pop, dang elusive Ram... no sign, so I continue on.
I'm just touching on Leatherworking now, so I've got some crystals on my to synth Sheepskins when they drop, so I jump off Choco pretty much at beginning of (G-5) heading south from dunes zone.
WS up, track the farthest Sheep I can see, and start running, popping any others I spot along the way. When I get to the sheep I was tracking, engage it, and wide scan again, drop lock, and look thru the list. Repeated process runnning north to south, and back, probably only 3 times. Then headed north, in (F-7) I see her pop on the list... south of me, around that stupid hill. Track on, map off, RLH!!! I'm running up this LONG incline, target her, still yellow, whip out Dia on menu, and let it fly when I'm sure it's in range.

Red name... YAY!!! I start ranting to LS about how I've always hated NM camping, and got soooo lucky on this one. About 20 seconds later, TP built up, Flaming Arrow ~200 DMG and one dead sheep.
All I see is items scroll up the list, and heart goes from pounding like crazy (started when saw name on scan) to a dead stop...
last line: Crashin obtains a Mary's Horn

w00t!!! I will be the proudest Lv 14 BRD sometime soon.
Unless I gotta sell it... =\ I am still freakin broke... and behind on equipment. LOL

um im a little confused. only because its not crystal clear of where u were.
if u say "south of the dunes" i guess that could mean that u were in the Highlands. at least i hope thats where u were. you mentioned La Theine and Lambert so the indication of going to the Highlands is almost overlooked.
to further indicate that u in fact went to the Highlands is the positions of the hunt you speak of. this is consistant with Stray Mary.
im not saying your stupid or anything of the sort. i was just a little unsure.
good job on your kill.
Happy hunting!

I killed this NM like 4 times all w/THF subbed & it has yet to drop the Horn for me.

I really wish this game had a body slam move so I can body slam the crap out of it.

I used to farm sheepskins around the hill at (F-9) a lot with my THF/MNK, crafting them into sheep wools and selling for 7-8K in the AH. I stay at (F-9) for 2 reasons. It's the area with the most sheep in Konsch, and it's the most common place for Mary to spawn, from what I've seen. Unfortunately, I've killed the stupid sheep 11 times, and still haven't seen a horn yet. At least the farming gives me a little cash. But yeah, she spawns around the top of the hill at (F-9). The one with 3 windmills on it. I've seen her there 14 times in total. Killed her 11 times, died once, and had it stolen off me twice. :p I give up on the damn horn. I'll stick with teleporting. :p

Time spent hunting/camping Stray Mary = 0. Time spent hunting rams, bees, and elmentals. Countless. Claims on Stray Mary = 5. Milk drops = 5, Horn drops = 3. Keep up the good work Mary!

I caught her mowing the grass at F-9 this time. I was on my way through the highlands (where I often farm sheep and rams anyway, always with an eye out for Stray Mary), when I saw her on scan. I quickly fled back that way and got the claim.

She dropped meat, a skin, Mary's milk and Mary's Horn. I was psyched. This was about an hour before the update on 9-7-04 so I got there at the perfect time.

I should point out that I've seen her as far north as G-5 and as far south as F-9; she spawns in an area somewhat larger than the map would have us believe (kind of like the Valkurm Emperor).

Oddly, the guy I most often see as Mary's Guide on my server is a taru 60WHM/30BLM. He doesn't equip THF or RNG yet he shows up just in time to grab this elusive mob. And leave me scratching my head as to how he does it.

Well, I finally got her. Was out farming sheepskins to make sheep leather. It was around F-9ish. I was killing a regular sheep and I turned around and saw another sheep so I went on to kill it. I was starting to wonder why I was doing less damage than normal and I looked at the mob name and it said Stray Mary... I was excited then :c)
Only got 1 Marys Milk from her. My THF sub was only lvl 12 so I kinda kicked myself in the but for not have my THF lvled to 15 for TH. I want the Horn for bard.

Sigh... TH1 won't do shizzle for rare drops, that's TH2's job, and TH2 doesn't help much IMO.
2/23 on Leaping Lizzy, 2 of those were in PT which doubles the odds ; ;
I hate this sheep
