this guy was pretty easy but I noticed that whenever I actually did try to camp him he never popped. I just got lucky with him one night though! I was trying to camp my lantern shield when I went over to take some orcs and there he was! As soon as I came out of the tunnel with my lantern shield I looked over to see he had popped again! Lantern shield and two Obelysks! too bad I wasn't as lucky with the auriga xiphos

ok so i attempted him last night and i was lvl 20 thf/blm 1. i use sneak attack on him. hit him hard. decide to use my maxed tp, hit him hard again. then after that i kept hitting him for 0. i have more than enough attack power to take down a lower level mob. what gives? does he have some sort of enfeebling magic or something. i thought he was rather tough. he did read impossible to gauge too if im not mistaken. im using flame sword also so maybe that could be the problem?
easy gil

I kill this while waiting on breacher and berricader.
The extra 1k for the obalisk is slightly helpful.
Only ever gotten the belt once, it sold for 2k.
I win.

Just killed this thing with my friend Scubasteve while out in Ghelsba ******** around. I was reading about this NM and saw that so many people have never gotten plate belt, so I was sure we wouldn't get it either, me being PLD53/WAR26 and him being MNK25/WAR12, no TH to help. Well sure enough, Scuba takes it out by himself... and there it is. The Plate Belt. :)

Hmmm, Took this thing on randomly while messing around in Ghelsba Outpost. 29THF/12NIN

Yeah, Gimp sub but I only need THF for sub anyways.

Anyhoo, Figured I'd take him on since I had Utsusemi: Ichi.

Used Invincible but all in all easy kill. Got an Obelisk. Wish I could have got that before I started to Lv my DRG. -_-; Whatever. ****** NM I.M.O. lol

Not that I particularly care what drop he gives, but I'm lifetime 0/35 or so on the plate belt drop. This is one stingy NM...
i've camped worse

stupid NM

The only Notorious monsters that are more useless than this one are the ones the drop NOTHING. . .

Example: WarChief Vagit *not counting crystals*
he is not worth it

this NM isnt really worth camping onless you dont have 1k (whitch would be pretty sad) just buy obelisk and dont waste ure time on it although i have never goitten plate belt out of the 10 times ive killed him camping the other 2 NM's 10/10 on obelisk 0/10 on belt
forgot a flag <.<;;

i spotted this NM while camping barricader and the other 1.....i was a 30 RNG so i just shot an arrow @ it and train it for fun....when i hit it it had like 1/5 of its health and used Invincible ><...meh i just shot another arrow and still killed it =P...gave me an obelisk but i just tossed it...not worth it....ppl dont know it uses Invicible cause every1 kills it too fast XD
My 3rd NM killed
# Mar 29 2005 at 12:41 PM Rating: Decent
Its my 3rd after the 2 war machines a lil up north, (no drops from them 0/2) so I came down and killed him in about a 15 second span with my ws and berserk, not hard at all.

My friend's girlfriend wanted to start playing the game, so I told her I would pl her for a bit so she can get used to it. She watched us play alot, so she had a good idea about everything, but she was still a crazy little noob ^^

Anyway, I told her to /check everything and tell me what they rated at, and we were in ghelsba and saying "Wow, those are VT and IT over there, I think I will die" then she just get's, well, dipresed or something. We all look at her and ask what's wrong, and she sais "I'll never be able to beat that one, it says 'Impossible to Gague'"! We all jumped, cause we didn't know **** about any nm in Ghelsba and people were screaming "Kill Kill Kill"! Killed it, got the poker thingy, almost droped it, not realy worth, gave it to her to make some money, but every one of us in the room just started laughing our ***'s off : )

i think the drop rate on this thing is 100% im like 7/7 he isnt realy worth camping b/c the drop is kinda worthless i ounly kill him when farming.
nm experience

Personally, this is the crapiest MOB (dropwise) on my server anyways. I usually jus run out and take a peek while camping the warmachines, tain a few orcs back in to help maybe. Ive killed him twice and i think he drops obeRIP like very time. (i did have TH1 though) IDK, im 2/2 on him cause i usually dont bother to even waste time on him anymore since i could barely sell those spears for a measly 500 gil each. I dont have any actual hunting experience with him but im guessing u kill orcs in the area and no idea of a spawn time.

Killed this guy randomly while waiting for a 5-2 party to form. I was 58THF/23BLM. I was training like 10 grunts at the time, and killed them all with Cyclone including the NM.

God I need something to do.

so i was waitin for a buddy of mine who was levelin in the area we were gonna farm in defulkts tower n i was killin fish so i wouldnt go crazy from boredom. this guy spawned n i didnt know nothin bout him. im a 45 drk so i cast bio n hit him once n hes down to a little past half of his health. he used invincible after that n when it wore off i killed him in a hit or two. got the obelisk off him so wasnt a complete waste of time i suppose. least now i get to go farm...
Easy fight!

A LS buddy (Sphyere, WHM 13/BLM 6) and I (BLM 13/WHM 6) beat him last night. We got the Obelisk and a Fire Crystal. He was extremely easy to defeat: I had on my Blaze Spikes and we spammed Water and Banish on him.

Orc NMs...your heads will be mine!

My LV16DRG got beat by this guy, just barly..

not because he's hard, but because a grunt linked at the very start of the fight.

I woulda had him easy if it wasn't for Invincible..

HUndredscar...Thousandarm...the list grows -.-

it's up in my Bazaar for 99,999,999 along with the beastcoin I stole from him the first time.

Hundredscar....you're next -.-;

He uses Invincible by the way. kind of a worthless nm anyway, obelisk is pretty cheap on AH, unless the price has gone up since i last checked
