I hope this helps, ive found only 1 spot that this spawns (mabey people kill others while im looking) but just before you cross the bridge (which requires people at various levers to open)... down below at position K-10 just before you would enter Mine Shaft #2716 ive killed him. First time i killed him i recieved Moblumin Ingot (used in 74ish crafting)

Came across this guy today as 62 blm, it showed up as easy prey to me, and he looked like he was in a little "arena" similar to what you see on ultimate fighting. Saw him cast blink so I lead in with thundaga II. Eventually defeated him although the battle took forever. Although his frying pan, crispy candle, etc dont hurt very much, he casts cure III and makes sure that blink and stoneskin are on him at all times. I had to drain and aspir him about 7 times, keep bioII, burn, choke, shock, and beat him to death with my staff so that I would not run out of MP. Not too hard.. just have to wear it down.

I just soloed him as a THF55/NIN27. He checked as EP low evasion to me. I used a Mithkabob (forgot to check him after that), and pulled him without Sneak Attack, since he was near some other mobs and I wanted to pull while they weren't looking. He wasn't very hard even without Bloody Bolts, but with them he was cake. He missed like crazy, though my evasion was 168+24 (yeah, I'm 10 levels under cap ><). Keeping Utsusemi up was no problem; the only time it would wear too fast is if he cast a -ga spell too soon. He cast Dispel on me once, but it was absorbed by one of my shadows. ;)

All in all, the fight took maybe 4-5 minutes, and a Moblin Hotrok and a suit of Moblin Mail dropped. Yay! I took the Hotrok, cuz that's what I came to get, and my PLD friend who was mining nearby took the mail (he likes to desynth moblin equipment). Now to try sneaking through Ulegurand Range... x_x

The screenshot looks a little weird to me, the candlestick or whatever he's holding looks more lighted up than the backround. Photoshopped maybe?

Also drops the Oldton Chest Key as indicated by the subject, submitting correction today (Feb 9th, 2005)
25 kills, and I finally got the Hotrock, the key dropped on the 2nd kill. Go figure.

He finally dropped! I decided to give him one last shot and camped him. The first time he dropped only gil. The second time he finally dropped that damned rock. I hope everyone else has better luck than I did with him. 25 kills seems excessive to me. o_O

Moblin Hotrok

He registers as easy prey to me so I'd say he's around lvl 45-48ish. I've fought him 10 times now and not once has he dropped this rock for me. It's starting to get slighty frusterating. Anyways, he spawns about once every 15 min in the room with the three levers at the very bottom floor. He's by himself, so you don't have to worry about a link. As for toughness, I'd say other than the local NM, he's the toughest mob in this place. Good luck out there. ^^

The Moblins have a special attack called "Crispy Candle" in which they pull out a firecracker to do damage/inflict a status effect on the player. That's the "funny colored stick".

Like Goblin Bomb, it can backfire. ^^

Actually, the one in the picture (green/orange) is Paralysis Shower. It usually doesn't stick on me, and when it backfires the Moblin always paralyzes itself if it's not already paralyzed.
Crispy Candle is a peppermint-stick tube (red/white) and it's funny to see them backfire...
It only shoots out a small amount of smoke/paradust/flame, the Moblin looks into the tube, and the tube explodes in his face. It always cracks me up when I see it.

It's also got the standard Goblin Rush attack, and also a Frypan attack - the funniest move the Goblins have by far. They whip out a huge frying pan and a ladle, then smack the frying pan with the ladle and create a shockwave. It's an AOE attack that can Stun.
