Handled him without breaking a sweat as a SAM70/WAR35. Saw him unclaimed and knew roughly what his level was, so I threw Seigan and Third Eye up, engaged and decided to reply to a friend's text.

About 20 seconds later I turned back to the game and noticed his -ga happy self damn near killed my lvl 50 NPC buddy. As a poster below mentioned, this guy casts fast enough to put an RDM to shame. Finished up at 1150/1337 HP, Frost Robe only.

Went to camp the other 2 NM's, and I saw Alot of Gsers around (like An entire party...) so I decided to check this guy, Killed the placeholders, Dced, 30 min later i log and there he is roaming unclaimed (Silly thf shouldnt have gone afk), Pulled him, Somewhat Long as a PLD60/RNG30, but mainly because I can't deal damage as well as most other jobs can. Killed it, got Frost robe which Is apparently, according to an lsmate 500k on Asura

I was skilling up my Marksmanship and planned to do some evasion skillups too in Castle Oztroja (turns out this place ain't so great for evasion ups as I later learned b/c of links o.O) but I ran into the switch room to check the combo and saw this guy. I almost ran rigtht into the room but caught his name and took a step back not knowing what level he was. I remember that the Yags that spawn in that room checked as Easy Prey @ 56 when I did my coffer pick, so he could be much higher level. Either way I decided to try him, used Hide + Sneak Attack + Dancing Edge and took damn near half his life and started meleeing him. He was very easy, didn't hit me once since I had Utsu and Blind bolts. I got a link from a Yagudo Lutenist but no problems there as Lutenists don't seem to accurate vs. a lvl 60 thf. He used Manafont halfway through the fight and casts a lot of poisons. I resisted 3 of the poison IIs but he eventually got me with a Bio II. Dropped the Frost Robe which sells for a measly 5k on Seraph.
dumb NM

I was coming in oztroja to steal gold beastcoins... so i go into this room to see the combinaition of the handles and there he is... i took him easy as 56THF/28NIN... but he was nothing but annoying for the drop I got (frost robe) my suggestion is to just leave him alone and let somebody else try to feel lucky
Tough Blm

I all but one-shotted this thing as 60War/23Blm (for Warp back to Jeuno) when doing G3 with Raging Rush...2288 dmg, all but a sliver of it's lifebar went bye bye. I dont see any reason to worry about this guy. Crappy drop, too.

Ok, I saw this NM on alla, and figured what the hell might as well kill it since im already there, I go in and no mobs and no one was around so Im like WTF and then I leave the room hit tab to kill the mob infront of me which was just a Oracle but when I hit tab it tagerted the NM so I turned around opened door and there he was right where he -wasn't- before so I'm still as confused as hell, I start to kick his ***, then I start to lag, Im think ok no biggy I'll kill him, then I d/c...and log back on, he's not there no items in my inv and half my LS is complaining cause they all d/ced too...I hate SE >.<

My partener didn't notice him -at all-, so I was like "Dude, there was some NM in there."

Lol, I was in there checking the switches as well to help a buddy with RNG AF, I totally didn't notice him as well. My buddies did though, so we went back and beat it up.

Got us the Frost Robe, about 5k on my server, boo
i died XD (shame)

Me and a fellow THF (50 and 55 respectively) ran in to check the dealy in this room, and then ran back out while this guy was up. My partener didn't notice him -at all-, so I was like "Dude, there was some NM in there." So we killed him expecting to get some ****** quest item, but were pleasntly suprised with an Earth Doublet. n_nb
Spawn rate

The spawn rate sucks, I've spent four hours camping this dude once, no pop. Make sure you kill the two yagudos that are in the room where he does spawn or he won't. Only two mobs will spawn in that room period, so if it's not him, start killin crap :)
spams spells

I was walking into the room to nab the combination and I saw him standing there so I threw down. He spammed spells very fast and didn't really attack. I was a 62 THF and he got me down from 1150 to 700, though I was sub whm at the time. I did a seal cure 3 to raise me back up so I Was never in danger. For half of the fight a yagudo ninja was throwing ranged crap at me also. Dropped the robe only.;;
