Vuu Puqu the Beguiler Picture

This trickster is known to be the most beautiful woman in the world (by Yagudo standards). Her eerie charm will captivate even humans, but she wonít show any mercy to those who donít fall under her spell.

Uses Soul Voice. Lottery spawn.

I was in Giddeus helping my friend get chest key.. i was a 37 with no equipment but about 300 arrows and a bow. my friend was a 25 whm. so i go inside the place where the key drops with the higher level yagudo. i killed all of them birds and got the key. i logged for like 4 hours and came back and boom, i looked at the thing and its name was longer than usual.. i checked it, and it says impossible to gauge.. so i said what the hell. i started attacking it and killed it. got the bird whistle, sadly only sold for 5k :(
Whistle is not a 100% drop

I was in Giddeus farming Yag necklaces with a friend (Norg fame and all that) and I decided to take a side-trip to camp Vuu for my freshly unlocked BST. I wasn't entirely sure if the piper in the spawn area was the PH or not, since he literally spawned on top of me after killing the second round of Yags and I didn't get a good look at what else had surfaced.

The fight was completely one-sided. I held off on buffs just to see how tough he was, and as a 32WAR/16MNK I tore him to pieces without using boost, dodge, berserk or even a mithkabob. He (it?) only dropped the Bonze's Circlet and no whistle, so it's definitely not a 100% drop (although from what I read the rates are pretty high.) Anyway, thinking that I got the rarer and more expensive of the two drops, I finished farming until our gobbie bags were full and warped back to Jeuno. Current prices on Remora:

Bonze's Circle- 2k
Bird Whistle- 3k
Yagudo Necklace - 500gil (included for sake of comparison)

This NM is really not worth camping on my server.

Didn't see this in any of the other posts, so I thought I'd add just a little bit. This guy is a BRD, of course, and as such he uses the BRD two-hour, Soul Voice. He linked while I was fighting something else...I didn't notice he was an NM until I whacked him one and he popped his two-hour. It didn't help him any- he tried to nail me with Foe Requiem II and I still resisted it. Melee'd him to death in 4-5 hits, no nuking required.

Got the whistle, but I already had one for BRD and BST. Sold quite quickly for the going rate of 10k on Sylph.

I took a few days to camp Hoo Mjuu, Juu Duzu and this guy and I ended up with 4 whistles, 4 light soleas, 1 bow (Juu Duzu's), 1 deodorize scroll and 8 or 9 mitts. It was like 2, maybe 3 hours per day. Maybe it depends on the times I'm playing, early, early for an hour or late at night 2-3 hours (european time) but there wasn't that many campers and those who were there didn't seem to know what to look for.

Even though there was others there (some seemed to do skill-ups) it was only me that killed the Piper and it was also me that got claim when Vuu Puqu spawned. First time I was a little bit worried about this guy, somehow I got the idea that he was hardest of the three. I was MNK around 30. And the surrounding Yagudo's were still aggressive. So first time I let someone else take him to see what it could be like. Second time I hundred fisted just in case, was gonna log off anyway right after. But he was really the easiest of the three.

I stayed around mainly to get a Monster Signa but thought I could see if I could get a circlet off this guy too.

During the end of my stay my son needed a whistle too so he came out to join me. He was out harvesting and crafting so he had a minimum of equipment (THF 37). After only twenty minutes or so he got too brave and took on to many of the Yagudo's at once and got poisoned and died. I stayed and not long after Vuu Puqu turned up and he could get his whistle.

(After I left the area to go back to do some missions my son came back one night and got a Monster Signa too, actually two but the first one he was in pt with someone so they sold it and split the money... hmm... I know I can borrow his if I ever need but I like to get these things by myself.)

Well that was easy^^

53whm/26thf, vs three thf/rng's and a pld/thf.
I see a longish name on the other side of the area, nail flee and spam my flash macro.
Took all of 15 minutes, and i got the drop first kill^^.

Happy hunting fellow whm's^^.
BTW I wasnt hunting it to sell, brd is lvl 10 and as soon as i find a ceremonial dagger i'm lvling it.

100% Drop

You all do know that the bird whistle drops 100% right? And it spawns once and hr and since barely anyone farms him thats 100k every 4hrs on Phoenix server lol. On phoenix server two months ago they sold for 25k in windy might be 30k now

I am 5 for 5 for the Whisle. The first time I seen him I was looking for the key for the Khazam air pass. and of the 5 times i got the cirlet 2 times.

# Oct 29 2005 at 1:26 AM Rating: Decent
yea its not 100% im 5/6 for whistle and 1/6 circlet-also PH is easy to spot as its only "Yagudo Piper" in that back room, and window opens every hour not the spawn cus i killed him twice in one night at 7:45PM and 8:55 PM he does have shortest time between window opening and pop that ive seen though

i needed this bird whistle for my bst right so i go to camp him. i went afk to go eat and i come back, and it said in the log so and so defeats vuu puqu. so i wait like about 1 hr killing yagudos and bees nonstop. i got alot of drops from them. then he spawns. It says i found a bird whistle on him. woohoo now i don't have to buy it from ah. Then i warp out to my hp in Valkrum. after i warp i look in my items to see that there is no beast whistle. only beehive chips. wow i forgot that my inventory filled up from beehive chips. i was extremly dissapointed. now since i dont have the time to camp it again i will have to buy it from ah.....
Solo no songs

I had logged off in Giddeus for what ever reason I dont remember. Anyways soon as I log back in..BAM!.. he's right in front of me. So I engage in combat and eventually win and get the drop. Yeah. Except during my fight I got quite and few Yags on me. I decided to run and got out of Giddeus with 14/736 hp left. Very close. But o well I got the drop! Did this as a lvl 37 BRD so right after i got out of giddeus i equip the Bird Whistle and walk away happy. He wasn't hard soloed him without songs, just melee.
gr8 timing

pretty simple story ... I was waiting for some high levels to come in to giddeus so I can ask them to help me with my DRK AF1 (Raven Scythe) and in the middle of a search it pops right in front of me. Being I am a DRK subbing WAR I thought I might get a crystal or a necklace if nothing else but to my surprice I got the bird whistle on the first try! Not bad for a 3 min. wait ;)

fun camping
