I killed this for rank 3 and his lil friend too, No one was out so once i got the 2 shields for mission, i grabbed an extra one and got the knife too for my WAR to play with.
Officially a Notorius Monster

I know the two named monsters in the lower level of Giddeus use to not be NMs, but during some update sometime they have been switched over to NM status. Check them they are not impossible to gauge.
ill tell u

i believe the parana shield and aspir knife are for a bastok mission

Farming Yagudo Necklaces on my Thief38/Ranger19, almost ran past him but then I saw his name and turned around. Killed him fast and got the shield - kinda useless unless you intend to equip it, considering it's EX. Tried it on, then dropped it. Oh well, still kinda fun that I ran into him.

Was out exploring with a pty n we see him we kick his *** easy and i get parana shield. i go to windy hopeing ill be rich n i find out its useless its just for mission 2-3.So really no reason in killing him unless u go to windy first on mission 2-3.

NM or not

"named monsters" yes, thought this guy did checked just like everything else, but kicked me and my jp friends ***. With ease. Even though it said was even match. This NM gives exp. the "Impossible to Guage" ones don't right. So this NM gives exp while lets say Hippolytos doesn't. So who cares what he is he is the only one to drop Parana Shield, and the only one with that name. Never will you see two of him at one given moment. So I say Notorious Monster he is!

"Named" Mobs, such as this, are special because they are the only ones in the game that have this name, and have a slighly rare drop. Warchief Vatgit is another named mob. he will con in "Impossible to Guage", but will become "To Weak" when your lvl is high enough. Now Jaggedy-Eared Jack is a NM. He will con "Impossible to Guage" to even people in there 70's where the Warcheif becomes "Too Weak". Also make note that most (not all) NM's have there own 2-hour ability. where you will never find a named mob that does.

Worst. Title. Ever!

No. Cause when leveling my lvl 10 WHM in Saruta I killed Tom Tit Tat and got EXP from it. The reason most don't give exp is not because they "don't give exp" it's because when you kill them you are usually well above their range.

Normal NMs that con "Impossible to Guage" really do have a con, you just aren't allowed to see it. so like... Tom Tit Tat would be a EP-DC or so to a lvl 10, depending on what level he spawned at.

NM also stands for "named monsters" this mob is a unique mob, ie there is only on spawned at a time. also many spawned NM con like normal mobs.

NM also stands for "named monsters"

"also" meaning more than just one. like "Notorious Monster" and "Named Monster".

Not really sure whether this truly is an NM as it checks just like any other thing out there.

The shield isn't any good for me but I'm probably gona keep it anyway for levelling up new jobs, if I ever get round to doing that.
# Jan 03 2005 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
I killed this guy hoping for more Bead Necklaces>>> Got a Parana Shield... which is really no use to me as i am a 29 rdm... but i guess ill hold on to it... ><

I was lvl 25 war lookin for the keys to go to Kazham. I found a pt and was trying to get where they were. Only problem was that i didnt have a map and i got lost way to much. So as i wandered back and forth looking for where my pt was i find this guy about 5 times. Kill him every time with absolutley no problem. The ppl in my pt were wonderin wat the hell i was doin and y they kept gettin useless sheilds =P.

Saw it once while doing Windurst Mission 2-3. I was about level 14, and I killed it easy with a level 17 WHM curing me. the Parana Shield it drops is pretty good for lower levels, but not a good item to sell. :)
RE: Eh...
# Dec 08 2004 at 11:24 PM Rating: Decent
If I remember correctly, isn't the Parana shield a Rare/Ex item and can't be sold or traded. I believe I have it in my stoage, because I can't get rid of it and might use it later for other jobs. Correct me if I'm wrong though......
RE: Eh...
# Mar 02 2005 at 12:40 PM Rating: Decent
rare but not exclusive. you cant transfer it but you can hold more than one. believe this is a mission item i am sure more than one are required. I have also had a 100% drop rate on the shield with over 50 kills on the "NM" been whooping him since lvl 25 rdm and still own him today. I like to shout for people looking for the shield when i do my trains cause i dont want to force someone to wait for the drop while i am out farming fame/gil. Aspir knife as well. Anyone on Fenrir needing these items feel free to /tell redhare if you need help.
i guess is an ok drop
# Nov 16 2004 at 12:41 PM Rating: Good
this shield is good just for low lvls i did 3 lvl on thf rdm and tossed it got this and the knife got mad cause rdm cant use it still used it with brd even tho i had 29MP with BRD/WHM ill get another when ever i feel like going to lvl blm and sum .Ive only got aspir effect out off nonmagical moobs anyone know why?

Why do I always have to murder these things when in Giddeus? Scored me an Aspir Knife and Parana Shield last night while doing AF1...
# Nov 04 2004 at 7:19 PM Rating: Decent
.... Technically it is a nm but if you check to see its diffuculty it does check normally so i guess it isnt a real nm just a mission nm i guess. @[email protected]'
# Nov 04 2004 at 8:32 AM Rating: Decent
u know its kinda annoying when he gets his utesumi when u have a great sword out, so u can just get a knife out and get rid of it, then equip it back. makes it a lot faster.

That is a nice idea, but there is only 1 problem with it.

Everytime you change your weapon, you lose all the TP that you have accumulated.

I would suggest killing him with the dagger or sword for the item, then switching back to the G sword. Personally, I like ot get this guy and the other one in a train through giddeous :P

its a nice way to get Yaguddo Necklaces ^^
