I have camped this guy many time. Yes, the Wallwatcher is his PH, HOWEVER you need to kill the other gigas on the floor to trigger Ogy to actually spawn. This is a proven technique for me. The problem I have is actually getting the jerk to drop the bracelets.

Easy win

So I went out camping this guy last night after LS leader suggested him. Made my way up to the ninth floor and went to work on the Wallwatcher and Jailer. Was one other person up there, but I think they were afk due to the fact that s/he didn't even attempt to kill the Gigas. Killed them for about an hour and Ogygos popped. Took minimal damage due to Seigan and Third Eye (SAM52/WAR26), and dropped a couple 500+ Tachi: Jinpu on him. Dropped socks, shield, and his bracelets. 1/1 on him now. Goes for about 80-90k on Bismarck.

Note: The spawn location, window, and respawn of the PH are listed on here so many times I didn't think it was necessary to put it again. And anyone who says that you need to do 1k+ ws needs to have their head examined...

Ogygos's Camping Info

Window Time: approx. 2-3 hours

Location: Middle Delkfutt's Tower F-8

PH: Gigas Wallwatcher / spawn time is 12 minutes

Myth: 1K WS Dmg...Don't believe everything you read. This has never improved drop rate while I have camped.

Good Luck campers!

F-8 9th Floor,Easily killed by Level 50 Samurai. Wallwatcher is the placeholder, Jailer just spawns there but isn't a PH. PH pops every 8-10 mins I would say, it was definetly more then 5 because Seigan never lasted until next PH, and it took a few mins for PH to pop after Seigan wore. First pop took 10 mins, 2nd one took 3 hours, I got socks both times, Huge Waste of time.

Totally false. I am a WHM68 and killed it other day and never did more than 500 with my Hexa Strike (i think it was actually like 492) and all my other hits did like 35-50 per hit. Stoneskin/Blink was a must along with Paralyze and Haste, but I STLL GOT THE BRACELETS TO DROP !! So all you out there making up excuses that you need to do 1k+ WS damage can delete your posts now... Sorry to break your hearts trying to make up excuses for your unfortunate bad luck runs, but it just ain't true. That's all it is; bad luck.

(Might want to go kill a few Mandys for that 4-leaf Mandy leaf.... when you have it in your inventory, it raises your luck a fraction, if you didn't know that... )

That rumor about the Mandragora bud is insanely difficult to prove. It would take literally months of collecting samples and determining drop rates with and without Treasure Hunter, and then with and without the Mandragora Bud. On top of that, you would have to calculate it with the elemental day and moon phase incase either one affects the drop. Plus, you would have to kill one of every single mob in the game (HNMs included), and do so multiple times to determine the exact percentage of drop. Thus, the theory/rumor about the 4 Leaf Mandragora Bud, is next to impossible to prove, unless the dev team comes out and proves or disproves it once and for all.

U cant claim the 1k WS is false just because u cant pull off 1k ws's as blm.

I find this comment to be false.
With the right equip,
A BLM CAN do over 1k damage.

This guy sucks

Well, I was hoping to be one of the lucky ones and get a drop. Been working on this since 12 midnight, it's now 2pm. I've claimed him 4/5 times (I went to sleep after first claim, got up around 6 to try again. Never popped until around 10, then 12, then 1 (some SAM got him) then a little after 2 he popped again. This guy was rolling on 1hr downtimes, it was fantastic; but I'm still no drop. Everytime he went down, though, I got something; Socks, Shield, Necklace..combination of any of the three. No bracelets yet; and I ain't about to give up. If I don't get them by the time my friend comes on, I'ma drag his 50THF *** out here to sit with TH2.

EDIT: Woke up this morning; rolled over, killed PH for giggles then started talking to a friend on the phone. I was just about to leave for the day when Ogy pops. I'm like...oh, alright! Let's make it 0/13... Now, what's funny is, someone mentioned that you must kill him doing over 1k damage with a weapon skill. After 12 kills no drop and on the 13th I do a 1123 damage with Penta Thrust and he DROPPED THE BRACELETS...I think that's just freakin' weird. I think maybe I'll stick around tonight for a second go at him and do over 1k, see if he drops again.

I have killed ogy 37 times and easyly do 1k dmg with Raging Rush or Steel Cyclone. There have times where I have done over 1k dmg and it has droped and there has been times where I did and it didnt. I have heard so many crazy rumors aobut ogy and enk lol its fun to hear people walk up and make up some crazy way to make them drop and then proving them wrong.

I dont know why beating the sh*t out of it faster would make him want to give you one of his prity bracelets he makes. o.O ;P

Fear the big purple guy that makes bracelets!

mk i was reading these posts, and im finding something wrong. I've killed Ogoyos at least a dozen times and its fairly easy to get 1k+ dmg on his sorry butt. hell ive done it unbuffed. my only regret is that the bracelets didnt drop as much as i wouldve liked them to. oh BTW Im a Drk70/War35 and i farm with Guillotine. Though camping enkaledos would seem more profitable.. but nooo those stupid RMTs keep beating me to the punch. which might explain why enkaledos bracelets are like 700k on Lakshmi

The 1000+ WS kill is false. Some jobs can't even pull that off on thier own. Add the fact that he apparently cannot be slept, which foils SA attempts, and you've got a busted rumor. People come up with the craziest stuff, I swear.

1/3 on this guy.

ok first let me say this i have seen Ogy put to sleep a lvl 75BLM/37THF ES Sleep II can put ogy to sleep i have seen it done and second a BLM can easily do 1K plus with SATA after Sleep II so until you try every possible way to sleep it. DONT RULE THE NM IS UNSLEEPABLE!!! in other words doboroo your statement is a bunch of bull

How noob are you? U cant claim the 1k WS is false just because u cant pull off 1k ws's as blm. I am gonna camp this as my rdm, if no drop i will hop on rng and test this 1k = drop theory.

Calling people noobs without precedence shows ones immaturity.

Still find it to be false. Those that say they got a drop by doing a 1000+ WS was most likely just coincidence. I didn't do one myself and I got a drop, and so have others. Obviously how much damage you do on a WS has no difference, and it seems foolish to think otherwise in my opinion.

And for the record, I can do a 1000+ Sneak Attack Full Swing with a musketeer's pole, depending on the mob I'm fighting. Probably would have gotten less on this guy even if I could land it.
kill and drop

killed him once as 63 pld got the socks second time as 54 thf got bracers and socks so im a happy thf. bracers go 1 mil on asura. from the point of the first kill took about 4 hours for respawn. VERY slow pop timer

Ogygos is stingy >_<
# Dec 19 2005 at 2:46 AM Rating: Decent
I have killed Ogy 23 time before i lost count... and have NEVER received the bracelets! Grrr...
I generally camp Ogygos while Camping Enkelados upstairs and have convinced Enke to give me his bracelets 4 times but never, never, NEVER has Ogy been so kind. What the hell?? You too good to share?!? lol
So is there some trigger to get the drop? I heard that you have to kill him with a Weapon Skill doing more that 1,000 points of damage. Could this be true? If it is, then I am wasting my time with him because I'm a Tarutaru BLM and there is no way I can do that much melee damage.
Oh well... Anyway, I hate Ogygos and I will continue to kill him out of spite, alone. lol
[quote][/quote]Dude! Can I cast Flare on it?!?

just killed him as a 50THF/25NIN ... fairly easy. used mighty strikes, only hit me once.. but mighty strikes wore off so it hit me for 35 dmg. the rest of the time i evaded his attacks or blink took the damage. Kinda long fight, but not hard at all. I got the socks.. alot of good that is, im gonna go try angain in about 2 hrs. mabey ill have better luck. "0/1 Ogygos's Bracelets"
Just solod
# Aug 27 2005 at 11:37 AM Rating: Default
I just solod this NM as a 42 BST while doing my AF1 quest.

It was pretty easy, just used a FunguarFamiliar and gave it a pet food zeta at half health, and assisted the whole time. It does use Mighty Strikes at 50% HP, but at best his critical hits were hitting for ~75 damage against my Funguar.

Gave 27 exp (with 30% pet penalty), and only dropped socks.
