I've camped this guy a few times, and have had good luck with him so far.

Three of the times I was with a 70DRK friend. As a (then) 45 BLU, i was weary about facing him alone. I subbed RNG for WS and he THF for TH. Together we've killed him three times, and got the drop each time.

Another time I went with a 65WHM friend, and also got the drop.

However, i recently tried to solo as a 48 BLU. I took some juice with me and began killing PHs (was sub rng) gave up and logged back on an hour later, and he was sitting there. I got him down to about 30%, but then my MP had run down, the juice wasn't recovering enough, and I was paralysed.

Yeah...if you're going to attempt soloing him at about my level, bring potions.#

4/4 So far.

Tried fighting this NM last night as a level 49 THF. I got it down to just a sliver of health, but it defeated me first. Next time I should remember to bring some potions and more variety of status bolts (sleep bolt + Sneak Attack weren't enough).

Deleveled too... >_<

Don't know what lvl other jobs can kill this, but I solo'd orctrap last night as 41bst/20whm. Got wiped out the first time do to failed charms (seriously...missing charms on easy prey is bullsh*t), but the second time went well. I'm sure a lower bst could have done it also if they get lucky with charms.

Used CC at first, charming whatever was near to me afterwards and sending it at the orctrap until call bst timer reset (dont recommed charming birdtraps, seem to be resistant to charm), then finished him off with second CC, using 2 hr to give it a bit more strength. Also used the scythe "Harvester" to give the orctrap a gravity effect. Highly recommend updated charm gear (+26 CHR and I still missed a few charms).

Edit: Solo'd 3 more times without dying.

Rather hilariously, whilst reading the placeholder information on this page (and checking it), Orctrap had just spawned and I missed the claim by a matter of seconds.

Though before that I came here and walked right into it uncalimed and got drop. Rather mixed luck, but oh well. 300k :)

Smokesalot, You were Right, Did exactly that and 1hour and 5 minutes into killing, pop, But some douche bag NIN came outta no where as it popped and I was fighting Tiger from Resting Aggro, Anyways, Camped it as 61RNG/30THF.
# Dec 07 2006 at 3:00 PM Rating: Decent
Yay! I got my Nikkariaoe!
Thanks to SmokesAlot, his post is dead-on.
Came in, located the PH, killed him, and a tad over 5 minutes later Orctrap popped. No drop.
Rode the barge to Sandy, OPed to Jugner, and came back in 1 hour 8 minutes later.
Located the PH, killed it, bit over 5 minutes later, Orctrap popped again. :)
You find a nikkariaoe on the Orctrap.
1st time he popped right on the edge of the lake in I-9. 2nd time about halfway down the narrow part of I-10.
Waxing Gibbous 71%

He should be cake to any job 60+.

I was on my way back to jeuno from my ussual Davoi play time and decided to go into carpenters landing for the second time to explore. Checked my computer to see what NMs pop here and decided i would come back with /rng sub to see if i could kill the PH and get an orctrap to pop. Anyway got the Orctrap to spawn first try (thanks for PH help) also got Katana first try! 5 min of camping never felt so good :)

Well, I think SE is making up going 1/15 on VE to me by making me 1/1 on Leaping Lizzy and 1/2 on Orctrap. A nin/rng was Widescanning the placeholders just south of the lake in the western part, he'd kill it, then run back to the lake. So I decided to stand where he was killing them and just wait for them to spawn..and sure enough, after 2 or 3 kills, it spawned, i got claim with flash, no drop. I logged out, re-logged in an hour later, he was still there, not killing anything...I killed for him, 10 minutes later, pop. Got the katana. I'm glad I spent about 2 hours total on this thing, seeing how some ppl have really bad drop rate stories. Good luck everyone!

Hey all,im thinkin of campin this thing 2nite and just wondering if i can kill all the Bird Traps in that area if im unsure of PH. Would that still work?
got em, but no drop
# Oct 09 2006 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
You camped him for 5 hours?? and claimed 5 times?

I thought he was a 2 hour spawn, am I wrong? Is it 1 hour only?

I claimed him earlier today, and then came back about 2 hours later, and heard from someone that he spawned an hour from when I got there, meaning he must be an hour spawn.

Well no luck today at all.

I have only gotten the drop twice, and once with belt and Nikka.

if you kill the Phs almost instantly after they spawn then he spawns almost every hour or so, maybe 1:10.

Been camping him for about 5 hours now today. All drops were during high moon phases, but aside from the last one (98% waxing), I can't remember quite what they were.

Drop 1: Hojutsu Belt
Drop 2: Nothing
Drop 3: Nothing
Drop 4: Flytrap Leaf
Drop 5: Flytrap Leaf, Hojutsu Belt, Nikkariaoe.

I honestly didn't think it was possible to get more than one item off of him at once, but I landed them all. :)

<3 this guy.

Incidentally, ***** BST. No offense, but you guys can REALLY wreck someone's camping with your pulling random mobs to kill other random mobs. Good Lord! ><'
Asura Orctrap Ruled by Cheater?
# Aug 09 2006 at 2:19 AM Rating: Decent
Welp looks like a cheater has taken over this NM on Asura ; ;

Bloodlestsnod (thf/war) can find place holders out of a group of traps. Checking to see if he/she sells the most on the AH.

I cant see a way with out widescan, to find the PH.

but anyway.. extreamly annoying specially because I know I cant do anything about it.

Its pretty easy.

Each time you kill a PH, it takes a certain amount of time for it to respawn. (If i remember correctly, for birdtraps its 5 mins). Whichever trap in the group popped exactly 5 mins after the last PH's death and body disappearance, is your winner. Now a better question is... how did he figure out the first PH he killed?

So I tried camping this, well.. actualy am right now, but anyway i'm 0/3 on it right now, one kill a drk and I sc'd Guillotine > Penta Thrust with a drain MB that was amusing, poor little trap did't stand a chance.. anyway one thing I didn't know is how fast it attacks, it usualy attacks 3 times per my one.. puttings it's delay somewhere around.. 120ish... anyway, It hit me for about 30 each time so i end up Super Jumping arround 25% of it's health turning arround and letting my wyvern tank it until it's almost dead then jump/high jump again... but still this thing suprised me.

Orctrap 411
# Jul 14 2006 at 11:18 PM Rating: Good
Ok ninja's, here's all the info you need. Good luck.

- Orc Trap average spawn time: 90-120 min
- PH respawn time: 5 min
- Estimated drop rate: Less than 10%
- Elementals have been added for the appropriate weather conditions. Exclude them if thunder/rainy weather is not present.

[The list]

Sabertooth Tiger
Diving Beetle
Diving Beetle
Bird Trap
Bird Trap
Bird Trap
Sabertooth Tiger
Bird Trap <------------- PH!
Thunder Elemental
Diving Beetle (This can also be a Bird Trap)
Bird Trap
Spinous Pugil
Spinous Pugil
Water Elemental
Spinous Pugil
Spinous Pugil
Water Elemental
Chuaie <----- NPC
Anguenet <----- NPC
Lourdaude <----- NPC
Cofisephe <----- NPC

Other Info:
- Orctrap can and will occasionally skip a spawn.

- Widescan list can and will vary at times. I've seen some pretty jacked up lists, including one that had six birdtraps all grouped together. Doesn't matter though. From the bottom of the widescan list, check all birdtraps until you get the one that is located in the spawn area (I-9, I-10). There is always just one. Birdtraps from the top of the widescan list DO occupy the spawn area, but none of them are PH's.

- Come with an empty gobbiebag. I made almost enough gil to buy the damn Katana from lightning clusters alone. Logging is also an option here.

- Katana is going for 500k on Alexander atm. Not sure about the belt. Sorry, wasn't my targeted drop.

- Questions regarding this NM. PM me.

Stupid Besh
# Jul 14 2006 at 4:11 PM Rating: Decent
Okay so I decided to try to get this stupid besh yesterday, seeing as my ninja is 29 and I can lvl up fast. I've never been to Carpenter's Landing before so I had no idea where to go. I asked a friend of mine to show me and they did. I got there and about an hour later it spawned. I got claim, no drop. Waiting around for an hour, spawned again, again with the claim, no drop. The next 10 hours I spent standing and killing the stupid Flytraps and nothing spawned.... I'm thinking that its more than 1-3 hour spawn. So today I show up get claim and no drop again. That puts me at 0/3. /cry

this NM has been incredibly stubborn to me!

Droprate dropoff.

I've been killing this thing since mid forties on my Drk. Thanks to this little guy I've got a Haubergeon, a pair of Woodsman rings, a Vassago's Scythe, and few other nice bits. Anyway I've noticed that after I hit lvl 60 the droprate really took a nosedive. Pre-60 I was getting Katana at about 1/3 of the time, and never even saw the belt. Now Post-60 It's more like 1/10 droprate and I get the belt about half the time that I get a drop. Once I got belt and Katana in one drop, which I considered to be a good day.
could i kill'er?
# Jun 07 2006 at 5:14 PM Rating: Decent
could a 50thf/25nin with WAY underskilled marksmanship, so no bloody/sleep bolts kill this guy?

Got this today :) 1/3, incredibly lucky, I think; I'd like to use this for my NIN! Wondering if it was the games birthday present to me, heh?

Anyway, the placeholder information is spot on. However, occasionally, the diving beetle just ISN'T there; Don't worry, while the PH will now be one in a list of birdtraps, it's still at the top, and, it's the only one on the western side of the "V".

Good luck camping this thing :)

Edit: Damn laptop keyboards ; Birthday present to ME, not MOE. Damn him!

That "Diving Beetle" is actually a rotating Beetle/Tiger/Flytrap spawn. The PH is still out of place on widescan though, so this is kind of trivial. I know because I kill the beetles and tigers between pops and when waiting for the S>N barge.
yea y'ok
