I was running to Horlais Peak last night and decided to see if I could net myself an extra 40-50k by claiming this undercamped bad boy on my way back. I made my way to his spawn area, killed the the pair of Grunts in the room and then the other two for fun/TP and waited. After five or so minutes, I saw an Orc with a strange name wandering in from the adjacent chamber, so I went to investigate and sure enough it was him. One Tachi: Kagero later and he coughed up his Wand (cheap b'st'rd...), but I was surprised to see him spawn outside of his given range since everything about this NM is fairly predictable.

So just a heads up if you're camping this guy under heavy competition (not bloody likely), be sure to check the very southern part of H-8. Spawn areas aren't an exact science.

As a 35whm/blm (currently), soloing this Notorious Monster is a peice o' cake. Getting a 4k wand, or the not-so-often robe drop for 45k (on my server), is an easy bit of constant cash. Clear the 4 or 5 orc area, pop the NM, wait 55 min (go watch a movie or something xD) come back. Rinse, repeat.

The robe is alot more common than 5%. I'm currently 11/27 robe the other side of that ratio for wand, having never subbed thf.

did i mention he's undercamped by a large amount? >:)

happy hunting!

I camped this sucker for 2 hr on Midgardsomr as a L25THF/12WAR, and 1st Kill I am 1/1 with Priest Robe. Bought Hermit Wand at AH for 3k so I'm done with him. For anyone that wants to know he popped at 2:24 am Central Time and it was 2:24 Light Day. Good Luck and Happy Hunting

1:07AM (RL) just killed it and got priests robe for the first time EVER, Ive lost count how many times ive camped this NM but ive killed it over 30+ times, pity the robe is only selling for 70k atm, wands selling 2-3k each in jeuno (Bahamut server) too, so before all you people start complaining about the 12kwands being underpriced or the robe being underdroped think of me selling these 30+wands and 1 robe for a mere 140k. for a weeks work not bad as a lv 24war/mnk newb. i have noticed that the neckchopers seem to be the placeholders(not confirmed) and that he does like to pop very close to the hour (RL) usually 50mins-1hr10mins. hope it helps.

Vagina Dentata,
what a wonderful phrase

You get about 10k per kill, if your damn lucky and you manage to somehow get bout 80k or whatever. This NM IS NOT WORTH CAMPING!!! If you have time to waste on camping Ashmaker Gotblut you either need to quit FFXI or get out more, this NM is a piece of sh*t that should never have been shat, it serves no purpose what-so-ever.

I did camp him on a quiet night when I needed stuff for my white mage in the teens. I had someone in chat. I did alot of forced pops. I didn't get the Priest's Robe ultimately--just a bunch of hermit's wands. However, it's worth it if you have the time and want a Priest's Robe.

Well, just after the update, no one was in the area (on Bismarck, when i came calling there has always been at least 2 people) so i thought "hell, i'll try and get him to spawn"
Went off looking for a chest for the key i had, came back, found him, and whooped him.
He's one helluva Nuking SOB though!
But all the same, 40War/20Mnk...the outcome was never in doubt XD
To anyone who camps this.

NM is never camped at least from my time im 1/23 so its a fairly bad drop rate but mining and killing orcs can get ya some money so its not all bad..... Knox on Diabolos

All I know is that his pop rate is not 1 to 1 1/2 its pops every 2 or 2 1/2 hrs for me even when killin all orcs :[

I've just got this guy last night "Unicorn Server" drop me a Hermit's Wand, I was killing Orcs for Fire Crystals when all of a sudden I stop for its unusual name and check this NM "IG", it's my VERY first encounter.

Well, I just thought at my lvl (lvl 23nin/11war) he'll just eat me, but iam wrong. Killed em and drop me a Wand. XD

# Jun 23 2006 at 2:17 PM Rating: Decent
Some b*tch named anastisa or whatever her name was just got lucky as hell and logged on 2 seconds before Ash popped and got claim and logged off right after that. I was busy mining on the other side of the room. Nobody else was around in the zone for the last hour or so >.< Talk about really bad luck /fume! So if yer reading this ana-whatever --GO TO HELL!

gilsellers do that all the time, pop b4 NM spawns, kill it, then log, they do the same thing in the Blacksmith's Guild, they spawn as soon as the shop opens, buy up all the Bronze Ingots, then log off b4 you can call a GM. same thing used to happen w/ Waomoura Silk when the TOAU exp pack first came out, the gilsellers camped the Clothcrafter's Guild, bought up all the silk, then logged off, then when they were full, they'd sell it for 300k a piece. this always happens, always will...sorry but it's a fact of life on MMOs

Actually, Xsjado

You didn't get the drop. The wand is a gay drop, the real drop is the Priest Robe
Gimmie that Robe!

Been camping this guy for the last couple of days, off and on. I'm a RDM37BLM18 and he is no trouble to kill. I cast DiaII, Gravity, Para, Enwater, and then start slashin his ***** He keeps droppin the wand though! Then I go up to Fort Ghelsba and camp Chariotbuster and I am 0/6 on that NM spawn. I really want the sword he drops and the robe that Ashmaker drops but I am getting bored with the Ghelsba area. >,<
no robe =[

I decided to finally camp my first NM ^^ and it happend to be Ashmaker Gotblut. Yes, he was undercamped, and I now see why; on Asura at least. I started to camp this NM at about 10:30, then he finally popped at 12:20... wtf. Anyway, I was happy he did pop. After I pwnd him very easily as a 30MNK/13WAR, he dropped the Wand, and I was still pretty happy, after all, this was my first NM camp and I got the drop. I later went to the AH to find that the wands were selling for 5-10k... so yeah... I spent almost two hours for a possible 10k. I dont think I'll be camping him any more.

Of all the times I've been in the Grotto, I have never seen him until last night when I was helping a friend get the treasure key for the Kazaam airship quest. We killed him with 2 level 19 warriors. I wasn't sure how hard he would be so I threw on Mighty Strikes. We finished him off with about half health left. I noticed he cast Fire and some other spells that I can't remember. He dropped the Hermit Wand and not the robe. Not a complete waste for me, because I can use the hermit wand to skill up woodworking to make Eremite's wand.
