Im about to start camping him so any tips from ppl on my server give me a tell :P

My advice is.. why would you "camp" a Nm that drops a 5k weapon? Just fight it if you stumble upon it.

As of fan fest 2007 SE anounced that the 4-leaf mandragora bud has absolutley NO hidden luck effects ^^

Logged in right after server check, started killing mandys, did one circut around the hill and he was right there by the outpost. I had just gotten a 4-leaf mandragora bud prior to spotting him, maybe that had something to do with it? :P

Anyway, 0/1 on Fruit Punches, all I got was a 2-leaf bud from him...

25thf/12rng camped for about 2 hours while reading all these posts for tips... I want to test the whole 4 leaf luck theory. Earths day killed maybe 25 madragorys...no sign of Tom.. got drop 4 leaf from regular madragory... decieded to head to town and cash in 8 cornettes and bam there is Tom in J-6!!
I claimed and he rewarded me with a 2 leaf.... off to test the theory.... Titan

I was leveling while reading today, only looking up long enough to /attack on and auto-run towards something. One fight happened to take longer than a few staff swings and so I looked up: Tom Tit Tat.

I was amazed that I managed to beat him, and fairly easily too. I just summoned Carbuncle, swapped hate around by occassionally turning my back, and cured myself when needed. I used Astral Flow for fun but didn't need to.

There you have it, a 10 Taru SMN with decent equip can take him.

Got Tom finally
# Jan 17 2007 at 8:40 AM Rating: Decent
Usually I see this mandy when I'm running around leveling a lower job and being the brave little Taru I am I always attack him and he always pwns me!! When I had rdm @8 I spotted him, attacked him, and he killed me. Ran back from my MH he was still there, attacked again, and he killed me again. Finally changed to my BLM and he was gone. So last night I'm running around Sarutabaruta with BLM trying to get a two leaf many bud for a quest and subbed RNG on the offhand chance that Tom would spawn while I was out there. I get to the hill and attack the first mandy I see and throw up Widescan....guess what Tom's already out there!! I run over and pay him back a few unkindnesses with my wand. Just to whack him to death like he did to me and he dropped the punches!

FYI I've seen him all around the hill and even down at the bottom quite a ways to the North....those Mandy's like to wonder.

Got Him

After camping 2hrs i finally found got him at I-6 1/1 had Treasure hunter 2 and i also ate a 4 leaf mandy bud dont know if it really helps.
Don't charm him
# Dec 01 2006 at 3:13 PM Rating: Decent
I had a BST friend who charmed him and brought him into his Mog House, but the charm wore off and Tom aggroed so my friend died in his MH.

Um... I can't believe no one has said anything yet. I realize the post is well over a year old but... at least I got a good laugh out of it. Also, I hope against all hope that this guy was joking and/or trolling.

Never see him damm i hate to camp. Oh well need 4 leaf! 4 good luck! lol
# Oct 13 2006 at 1:53 PM Rating: Decent
So I've been camping Tom for a long time... roughly 4 hrs without a spawn. So I decide I'm gonna go camp the crow NM around here instead. Quite literally, as I turn to run away from the hill, there he is... Got the claim, was excited, cuz it would be an easy kill for my 17WAR. About 60 seconds later, he dies... and drops nothing.... not the fruit punches, not the 4-leaf bud, not even a crystal.... I hate Tom now.... 0/1 and 4 hrs of my life gone...

This was the eastern part of <I-6>. Midday... I forget which.
# Sep 16 2006 at 2:49 AM Rating: Decent
Lmao. Was hunting the crow nm here, i was just up about to hit it, the other party whm, blm, both 15 no subs claimed it with a dia. So I'm like /fuming. I was rng/nin. And I watched till they both, eventaully died. claimed and killed, friend lotted for it :3 And then we walked up to the hill just chatting, a blm training on mandies. It just spawned behind us, blm aeroed it, we're like woops. But the idiot just /help and we helped it, eveutally getting nothing.

Camped him for 5-6 hours killing place holders. ^.^ Nothing happened, so I logged for the night, woke up in the middle of the night, logged on. He was standing right in front of me. Boosted 2 times, engaged, attacked, 2hr'd, pwnd. 11 HP and 1 Fruit Punches drop later not to mention exp to level up to level 10. ^.^ Was a good fight. 1/1 w00tage
# Aug 10 2006 at 1:13 PM Rating: Decent
I'm 3/3 on Tom. I occasionally run into him while walking to Giddeus for farming or helping people get their Kazham keys. I've never seen him pop on the windurst side of the hill, he is always on the back side when I see him. I actually thought Tom was a 100% drop until I read this page! I guess I am just really lucky with Tom.

Goes for about 40-50k on Leviathan.
hunt him!

I was merely farming/leveling just a touch Northeast of the outpost when I saw him wandering aimlessly Northward (in H-6, for those who like specifics). I Boosted a few times then engaged him in hand to, um...leaf combat? I was a level 11 Monk at the time. We each got each other down to half HP when I decided 100 Fists was highly necessary. And it did the trick. Mix in about 3 or 4 Combos and 100 Fists expired right as Tom did. Alas, no drop. I was not wearing any uber gear, nor did I eat anything. I just barely beat him as an 11 Monk with 100 Fists.

I was out lvl'ing my 4 Blue Mage / 2 Warrior. I accidently wandered out into an area that was just passed my lvl. I was checking mobs when I realized one of them said "Impossible to Gauge!" I ran back to town and changed hoping that no one would notice him. I headed back out and there he was right where I left him on my widescan ^^. Took my time killing him and "stole" the Four Leaf Bud from him. Now I can try out these rumors about drop rate for myself.
# Apr 13 2006 at 2:51 AM Rating: Decent
I camped this guy for 5 min last night and spawned almost right away. I had been stealing cotton from various mandragoras so when i claimed him I had to keep the battle going for at least 3 min.

SO, with my back turned i waited. When the timer was up, i turned around and stole the 4 leaf mandy bud.

And got the drop....1/1

Maybe the mandy bud had something to do with it?

Ah, yes. This was my first NM kill. No drop though.
soled as theif
# Mar 03 2006 at 1:13 PM Rating: Decent
On my way back last night to windy after farming for crystals and this mob poped. i was using my theif at level 16 subbing warrior. I remebered the time he had jumped me as a lonely red mage a couple of weeks back so i had a go. soled it with about 63 hp to spare, no two hour used. It droped the fruit punches and a load of other stuff.

Damnable mandy...
# Jan 23 2006 at 11:10 PM Rating: Decent
For the last 3 nights I've been force spawning little NM to try to get the fruit punches to avoid having to play 100k+ (on Midgardsormr) for the Tropical punches (find a high lv leathercrafter and have him/her up the fruits to trop) so I've used my Monk (which has ranged from 13-16 over the last few days) and I'm 0/3 on the punches... I know the trops aren't nessisary for Monk but I'd still like'm they make for Hunderd fists +1 (or so I've heard).
Damnable mandy...
