Ive looked all over for pop locations for each of the Fomor types. I found nothing. I have since decided to post locations I have seen myself within the main lv of the Aqueducts for each of the Fomors I have encountered.

I have seen Fomor MNKs at:
(D,E-4,5) - there are 2 MNK pops in here, each alone. Be careful when pulling, however. There is a Fomor Party in here (4 fomors) that I believe WILL link with the MNKs if they are close enough.

I KNOW there are more pops, ill post as I find them.

Be careful, though: If you're talking about the spot where I'm thinking of, the NM Tres Duendes pops there as well. It's a red Triple Bats-type mob, and is followed by the Duendes' Amoroso, an IT BLM fomor. It's a pretty tough NM if you're caught off guard.

Does anyone know if the subligars drop off these guys in Lufaise Meadows? I killed a few here when they spawn and I have yet to get anything. Someone told me they only drop them when you kill them in the Phomiuna Aqueducts.

I've only seen one set of them and was excited so I ended up taking them on. They all conned as too weak though.
Maybe I got easy ones, I had a fomor:
Thief, war, mnk and sam
I used shadowbind on the thief and ran away (I still have no clue where he went, maybe someone saw him running solo)
Finally I barraged and turn to take the mnk out (Goodbye Taru ; ;) lol took two good hits, sidewindered and took the war out, then the sam. I had absolutely no problem with them @ 59RNG, so again, I probably got easy ones. But they were fun lol
you can solo

I was able to solo a MNK very easily @ 68. They con EP at that level.

However I'm looking for a MNK spawn in a tower or where there are no morea than 2 fomor that will link. I know about the campfire up north but 5-6 is more than I wish to tackle.

Does anyone know where I can find a duo maybe on a tower? I've see WAR, SMN, THF and BST on some but never MNK. Do they spawn random at the towers? If I kill enough will a MNK spawn eventually?
solo maybe?

Anyone know if a few of these fomor's are soloable? The mnk & smn at the begining are what i was really thinking about trying first....sounds like they are sleepable. Could a Rdm go in there sleep the smn & pull the mnk....normal smns can't do anything while asleep right so the smn's avitar wouldn't do anything till smn woke...right? Take out the mnk keeping stoneskin up while keeping the smn slept....take out the smn next? If not soloable would they be able to be taken w/ a pair of ppl? Anyone know?

OK, apparently, at lvl 52, you can't take a Formor Party of a Monk, Warrior, Samurai, Thief, and Summoner at the same time with Hundred Fists.

It was close......But I only killed the Monk the War and the Sam.
Taru Monks ARENT the best

Gimme a break guys. Low STR, VIT, and HP.....

Now, dont misunderstand, I am a firm believer of any race can do any job.

But PLEASE! Taru mnks CAN own with all the right equipment, this is absolutely true.

But Elvaan and Galkas make the best monks bar none. I take monk very seriously, and have all the best gear to have, and Id own any taru mnk in a second, no matter what equipment they had.

But take heart little tarus, I definately wont argue your mage power......

Sorry I have offended all you tarus out there, just giving a wake up call.

{/em} cuddles {formor} {monk}... that is so cute :3
# Mar 04 2005 at 12:35 PM Rating: Decent
Isnt he the cutest damn thing u've ever seen? Makes me wanna take em home and keep em. Treat em like a "My Little Buddy" Doll. LOL

Nothing intimidating about a taru monk shadow lol, they could of at least made it a mithra, a little bit more intimidating if u ask me. Monks are supposed to be a bad a$$ type job, pounding the heck out of things and dealing an occasional whop! up side the head with their leg. U stick a taru in there then it becomes cute, not intimidating. Maybe that was SE's idea when they did this. ^^

Taru Monk... Mithran Red Mage... Elvaan Thief... Hume Ranger...

Okay, I'm not saying that a good player can't make those jobs work out and all, but...

You guys remember the town was *obliterated*, right?!?! Maybe this should tell you something!

you have never seen a taru mnk then... as long as they have str rings they own even Elvaan unless you have really good equips.

What Taru lack in str they make up in insain acc which with a dot job adds up in the end.
RE: Okay...
# Mar 05 2005 at 10:59 AM Rating: Good
Sorry, but... erm.. No.

You'll be missing over 15str at 75, which you cannot make up.

RSE belt? Black belt is used by all races.
RSE2 hands? Alkyoneus used by all.
RSE2 feet? Dune boots, sry.

MND? About 10 MND difference which you also cannot make up entirely.

RSE belt for.. 4? MND. I have a twinthread obi for 2.
RSEgloves/legs/feet? I have T.M. Slops+2, Suzakus' sune-ate, and devotee's mitts+1.

HP? Useless stat really, but if you happen to get hate somehow from your 100 less dmg chi blasts, my 1600 or so hp with /whm sub will let me survive a stone V.

VIT? I don't know the exact difference, but I'd guess to be around 10 pts too. Not the most useful stat for MNK, but when soloing, that 36 hp from chakra extra might save your life. Not to mention you'll take slightly more dmg. (And have far weaker Dragon Kicks, which are based on STR and VIT.)

This is not to say that someone cannot be a taru monk and be good at it, but it is just stupid to say they're better than Elvaan. You simply CANNOT make up some stats at endgame because there are better things that everyone can use. Now, if the argument was "TARU MONK RULES ALL IN CUTENESS", you would be right hands down, however, in all situations, solo, HNM, exp, a taru will do less dmg than an elvaan, and this is a fact.

Whats the worse thing it could do? Punch you in the knee? Yes that sounds painful but not dangerous at all.

some of the fomors conned easy and weak to me at 68. They appear in groups and hunt in groups, I tried carby pulling and I got the whole gang on me.
They got an AoE attack that drains all the party TP.

I would have to agree, they put up little fight to me when I was there killing him and the BLM. Note though that they pop in groups of 2. So far the groups i've seen are BLM and MNK and DRK and NIN. DRK and NIN were mithra >.>

That means people can whack the **** out a Taru Monk (if the have the right lvl) and a Taru Monk is considered as a monster.

Take that in your mind. ;)
