rdm does NOT work around 60

i tried killing megalo as RDM62/NIN31 but couldnt deal dmg to it, it's regen is too powerful and i could only last for about 45 min and then ran out of MP from buffs and convert wouldnt come back up >.<;

big ups for this! tried it.. works. How do i know? well, most people stand in valley and just kill that bugard over and over.. as did i. I run around killing other ones, but always get back to valley for that 5 min pop. Well, after camping 2.5 hours and no pop yet...and being lazy and only killing the vally bugard, i started browsing the net and found this info. So, i waited for bugard to pop in valley and left it alone....did the widescan and noticed the 2nd group had 4. I tracked the last one and killed it went back to valley leaving that bugard alive....sure enough, 5 mins goes by and bang! Mega is up...beside the bugard i decided to not kill. a moving PH is exactly what it is....theory proven.


Group 1 - 2 Bugards.
Group 2 - 3 Bugards.
Group 3 - 2 Bugards.
Group 4 - 1 Bugard.
Group 5 - 2 Bugards.

if extra bugard appears in one of these widescan groups, kill it..thats the PH.

i dont understand
# Apr 16 2008 at 9:31 AM Rating: Decent
i dont understand anymore what SE wants me to do.

Well im broke, like nearly everyone else, and decided to go dual camp this NM and The Bravo subligar bomb NM. all night and all day. 48 hours of keeping my eyes open and praying and hoping for atleast 1 drop, even one of the rings both mobs drop. I end up with this........

0/45 On megalo horn and 0/0 on Bravo subligar.

In a couple of days i had killed megalo every single time, sometimes getting him to pop before the hour was even up. i had gotten the hang of counting place holders and not killing all the bugards in the area, and easily out claimed everyone that came to camp it. Even had a gm called on me for suspected botting. But what happens? after every single kill, absolutely nothing dropped, not even a skin.

With Bravo Subligar, The bomb NM has to pop out between 2-7 in the moring vanadiel time, also it has to be foggy.

Not one time in countless vanadiel days did Foggy weather show up. i was very upset because this was supposed to be the night i buckled down and did things for myself. Stayed stubborn and decided not to quit, never ******* or complained, and doing it all by myself.

What did that time get me? -170k gil, from constant food and shehie use. i just dont know what to say.

SE, what do you want me to do to be able to get this drop? im still here playing this game and i just want to know if SE cares more about the money per month they make or its fan base.

Im happy to say that im finally gonna get some sleep, and just take a break from the game for a little while.

Easy to camp if you have widescan, but drop rate sucks without TH, dunno how much TH helps tho.

Took this guy out as a 60nin/war in about 20mins. I didnt have to do any of the lvl 40 spells to stall out his regen either. Just need to keep it blinded, he missed me so much I didnt really pay attention to shadows cause Ni was almost always up.

Well this NM is easy to pop, really easy. In the valley theres 3 that can pop. if theres 3, kill them all. if theres 1, leave it be, if theres 2 one is PH. Also up the slope (north on map) if theres 3 bugards left of the big tree all the way back 1 is PH, same goes for right. The right side starts at tree and end at shed far on the lower right. Megalobugard is bigger then the other bugards and ONLY pops in the valley. the valley ends after the fomor tower. I claimed this thing 100+ times as rdm/nin and rdm/war (lvl 75) and only gotten drop 4 times. 1 time was with 3 thfs. and 2 times were with 1 thf. Rumours are that itimidation helps drop rate. Also if you get claim and kill right after another the drop rate should increase, my rdm buddy gets drop after killing 4-6 consecutive times.

I was just running through meadows. and saw this guy walking around.

So I claimed him, as 74 drg/whm I only had 28 MP or so cause I had cured some guys in the dunes when I passed them. I had to healing breath a few times, didn't get a single drop.

Overall, it was an easy fight.

I've been camping this guys while I level my NPC as a 65 Tarutaru RDM/BLM using Hornetneedle.

I freeze his regen using 3 Elemental Debuffs, Bio 2, and Poison 2, along with hits, but it takes forever to kill him. I could tank him forever. He only hits for ~30 through Phalanx and Protect 4 with AF on. However, wearing this guy down is just too MP intensive to be effective. I have to pause about every 1/5 of his HP and kill time until Convert, which is always tricky. Also, he seems to hit a little harder the weaker he gets.

I could probably solo him by throwing on the DoTs, building 300% TP with a sword, waiting for mp to come back, then using Spirits and Chainspell Thunder II + Convert.
Yay for Jhereg!

i soloed this guy at 60NIN/30WAR.. his auto regan sucks bad. I must of used atleast 15 blade jins... usually for like 500+ a hit. 0/6 on tusk ; ; hes easy to camp though. Fun to let lvl 70+ JPs try to wait for me to die ^^
I don't like bugards anymore.

This is a very stressful NM to camp. My girlfriend and I went to Lufaise to kill Fomors for a nail file when we saw that Megalobugard wasn't camped. We thought we'd stick around since the tusk goes for millions of gil and we didn't have much better to do.

We ended up waiting over four hours. It was pretty stressful. I found that most of the time, the bugards' repop times were around 2 hours and 30 minutes game time. That helped keep some of the stress at bay, but we still had no luck getting the actual NM to pop.

Two and a half hours in, I got bored and began leveling my NPC on the bugards above the slopes to make sure they weren't the placeholders. This had some kind of effect, since one more began popping down the slope after I killed off the majority. Eventually after this, MB finally spawned. No drop. Four hours wasted, and we were dead tired.

I just soloed this thing as a 66WAR/33NIN. It was a total adrenaline rush the entire fight. I went there hoping to look for NMs in Lufaise and Misareaux. Odqan, Padfoot, Megalo. No luck with Padfoot or Odqan so I head over to Megalo camp. My only competition is a 75 anon ninja. As we're killing things he runs up the hill to fight gigas up there and I fight another Bugard. Sure as ****, the second I turn around, Megalo popped. As I'm chasing after him spamming my provoke macro it's not doing anything so I'm starting to get scared the ninja will claim it before I can get him. Luckily, provoke goes through and I start to fight him.

Holy hell that fight is long for a level 66. I was spamming Blind Bolts and Acid Bolts like crazy. Luckily, even without blind, he has **** accuracy. Whenever Utsusemi was down I would hit him with a sleep bolt, turn around, and recast. Not all that tough of a fight, just very time consuming. His auto regen is very potent but a few rampages put him in his place.

He generally hit me for about 50-100 damage when he caught me with Utsusemi down. Has all the normal Bugard moves like STR down and Tail Whip which takes out two shadows. I never got hit with it or I'd say how much damage it did. All in all, long but not too tough of a fight. Ended with 767/1331 hp. Only got the Herc. Ring though which got me a little bummed. The Horn goes for 1.8mil atm on Bahamut. Although the horn would've been a plus, the fact that I killed him, and the fact that I know I can kill him easily, made my day ^^

I had just finsihed Fomor Codex farming and decided to go kill the War Fomor in Lufaise Meadows for the Magiked Steel Ignot.
While i was waiting for repops i was killing everything in the area then i saw this Bugar named Megalobugard and checked him and he registed as Impossible to Gauage.
I told the LS and said wish me luck (i had no idea what lvl he was or his compabilites) so i engage and im a 75 war/nin (with meritted out axes).
I was spamming acid bolts and rampage and notice he had alot of HP(i had no idea he had auto-regen till i check this site)and was kicking his ***. He didnt hit me once so he has **** acc i can tell ya that and after i killed him a horn dropped. I go back to AH and was like OMFG its worth 2mil. Gonna put the gil straight into my COP fund lol.
1/1 on this NM and im gonna hunt him alot more now.lol

well yea, i was in lufaise meadows for 3hours or so, was rdm/war ready for provoke but i got bored. I went to change into thf/rng to test out the guy's theory about the groups, idk... i think it worked, 3 PH i killed and it poped. THF/RNG, i beat him, took bloody bolts, used alot of acid bolts for faster tp. My evasion was pretty high so i didn't get hit much. Dropped the feets, /sigh wanted the ring. But it was a really fun fight, hope i'll get fight again...
# Mar 27 2006 at 1:51 AM Rating: Default
So friend and I go NM hunting, pick this one, I learn how to pop it as we killing all mobs in site. Friend decides to go, 10 min later I understand how to pop and he's up.

Only a 73 Dmg, and don't have much for DD, so I start soloing, and see very quickly that I can't. He isn't hitting too hard, but I can't out damage his regen.

I shout "help" on EO HNM LS and 75 Mnk jumps right out. I spend abou 10 min kiting waiting for Mnk to show lol.

Mnk arrives, kicks the crap out of him in the time it takes for me to recover. And what do we get? A single skin drop lol.
