Today i saw this guy running into zone and i saw this NM kill him. He killed my friends pty then he went after 3 more ppl they zoned. I was seeking atm and while he was murdering i took some snapshots lol. Then he finally aggroed me n i zoned n came back out BST killed him.

Also,my first experience with him: Was iin a pty like always and this happens:

Just finished off a dancing wepon with a PL.
DRK)We can handle a wep w/o him go
WHM)u sure?
DRK)yah go get one
THF)Incoming Trickster Kinetix!
Me)WTF?! O.o

We all died and bout 3 minutes after we died PL'er killed him.

the drop really isn't worth it unless you're a BST. if you are, it's a very nice axe(regardless of lacking abilities)
No Drop

Was just killing giants in qufim i ran into this guy... killed him in about 4 shots including a swift blade. no drop as usual.. wasn't surprised. tried again next time i was there no drop again. dont think the axe is worth a lot anyways so i stopped trying.

I got this guy also. I went to qufim to skillup my club. Charmed the kraken, which was a decent challenge to me. Running around the area killing skeletons and giants, TK showed up. I got the axe.
Killed me

be weary my friend, all NM are(to my knowledge)atleast 10 levels higher than what the listed level is, so you were basically fighting a lvl45 mob >.> so sorry.

I was farming Arcana for a Kaiser Sword for my friend as a SAM62/BST13 (pet Kraken kicks ***), didn't realized it was a NM until my friend said so.

I was wondering why Kraken was losing that fight...
No drop, but we got a Kaiser a few mobs after ^^

I was in a party a few weeks ago in qufim (near the tower), leveling my THF. I was 24 almost 25, and exp was getting slow on pugs/giants so we swtiched to weapons. Thank GOD we had one of my friends as a PL there.

RNG: Pulling Trickster Kinetix <call3>
Me: !!!
PLD: wtf???
WHM: Oh Sh*t

We decided to take it, and it was easy - thank you RDM PL with infinite MP ^^ Afterwards the RNG was "I didn't even know it was an NM...I just saw it and pulled." -.- ugh lol

It dropped the tabar & we all lotted & the RNG got it and says: "what the?...what is it? I dont want it? someone take it." so we all /random'ed for it.

Really good ranger, but not very brilliant when it came to pulling...nope, not at all.

Just finished fighting this guy. was killing weapons for sword. saw it, thought it was interesting so i cam here to look up the lvl, while i was doing that it aggroed me (thank god i have a laptop so i just had to look at my computer moniter to save my self). I used raging fists fought a little while, when i saw it was beating me, i used chakra then 2 hr walked away with nothing /cry
Waste of Time

I just killed this nasty little fool at 53whm/26blm with 120/610 MP and it was a long fight. Why? Because he had 2 dancing buddy friends casting Cure III on him whenever I got him almost dead. So I had to drag him away (and they kept following him for awhile). So needless to say, this NM is a waste of time, the Tabar isn't that great of a drop. Save your time and possible XP from death and move on^^
Kill this

I killed this thing as a lvl 48 RNG was just wandering around helping ppl and saw it spawn and aggro this little Taru so without thinking i ran over and shadowbinded it then barraged and 2hr and WS Icarus wing WS and it was dead the little taru stuck around to watch me kill him and to cheer me on so after i got the drop i gave it to him we've been friends ever since :)

I was killing Dancing Weapons for the Kaiser Sword, it killed me BLM47/WHM23 even I used 2 hr. I came back as a SMN50/WHM25 and had my revenge 2 hours later, VERY easy fight :/ So Shiva was a better tank than blm...

btw, dont waste ur time on the dancing weapons, just buy a kaiser sword at AT for the map.

Up until I got my Kaiser Sword for my Delkfutt's Map, I farmed in Kinetix' spawn zone on and off hoping for a kaiser drop, not knowing there was an NM in my camp region. One day I run to this section of the spine and see a 'Trickster Kinetix'.


I immediately ask my LS what level is he and can a piddly LV50THF/25NIN take him? My entire LS is like, 'You can take it Jay!' So I Utsu up, engage with a Sneak Attack - and promptly see about half his life bar fall away. It was an easy fight from there, and the accompanying adrenaline rush was nice. Got the tabar too ;) Took forever to sell, but the most satisfying 8k I ever made!

I've seen this thing twice whilst levelling in Qufim. It was sitting there near the white pillar, so I went pretty close to it with Invis / Sneak on (not too close, obviously) and took some screenshots.

After a minute of watching it, I did /sh and announced it was there. Within 20 seconds a group of 3 high level players (WHM, DRG and WAR) appeared and it was gone very soon. I've seen this thing zoned as well, and stayed well out of its way.

Kinetix is a similar size to the other Weapons, so it's easy to pass it by. The weapons are nasty, tough little cookies.

Was helping an LS member get a Carbuncle's ruby in Qufim the other day when he runs right by about 4 weapons. Of course, they all aggro. As me and another LS member start to clean up the mess, I notice that one of the weapons is Trickster Kinetix. Anyway, he goes down easily along with the rest of the weapons. Drops the Tabar, they let me keep it. 8K, meh.

I was killing weapons and i attack him, not even realizing it's a NM. Anyways, i kick his at as lv50 PLD. Easy guy, and it did drop the Tabar. (without TH)
more than i could chew...

so im a lvl 45 thf with a thirst for NM's. im sitting around jeuno when i get the urge to go hunt down ol' Trickser. i had seen him once or twice in the past so i go to his playground. after killing his Dancing Weapon buddies he decides to show up. so i go say "hi" to him with a ranged attack.

big mistake...

this sucker whooped me something fierce. i had lvl 10 rng sub so that didnt help much.
as the battle ensued it seemed all hope was lost. i use every ability i had including Perfect Dodge. at around 30 HP of mine remaining i see my saving grace.

Soandso starts casting Cure III on Prophet.

my @$$ was saved thanks to a little taru whm whos name i cannot recall. at this point Trickster still had 1/3 of his HP left so i owe it all to that guy. and to top it all off...no drop...

so here's a note to the 45thf's out there: DON'T
DRG ... I envy you ...

Almost got this guy but some DRG used jump to beat me to him :p Anyway I was only in the area to raise, had no equipment ... so he probably would have owned my happy ***. -_-
Seems to always pop at that spine, in the area right near Delkfutt's tower. I've seen him 5 or 6 times now. Dunno if he's worth it, I hear tabar is only 7k on my server (Odin). I saw a pt take him once though, might have been by accident. They all died. It was a sad sad day. ; ;
killed with bst

I killed this NM very easily with BST job level 34 using 4 pets (2 leeches and 2 clippers) and he dropped the tabar

I ran into this guy about a few hours ago whilst ******** around in Qufim. I didn't bother trying anything (since Arcana tend to kick my *** than I think --;), a Drk in Darksteel Armor came around the Crag-ish fence thing and poisoned it (although I could've easily voked it and claimed it...)

Only Lv.40 SAM, I don't think I wanna risk dying for 8k ><
