a headache with relief

camped this thing for 3.5 hour and some one else shows up grabs the first kill and i wanted to scream. This mob does do a double spawn then waits 4 hours. IF you miss the first one keep camping the second will be there very soon. very happy with my new shiny GTK

Easy kill
# Nov 27 2009 at 6:05 PM Rating: Decent
I've killed this thing 3 times now with a THF/NIN at level 20+, got the drop 2/3, but one time I already had the drop in my inventory, so it may very well be 100%.

Spawn time
# Aug 29 2009 at 3:46 AM Rating: Decent
Just killed it twice in the same 2 minutes.. so I think the spawn time is random from death to 4 hours.

From the time we started killing PH's took around 3 minutes to pop, - 2 minutes later he was up again - *EDIT*

Camped it today for about 3hrs. 100% drop rate. Made 30k or better from drops around the area while i camped (bees, bats, gobs, sheep, etc.)
he does pop
# Mar 01 2009 at 9:54 PM Rating: Decent
i farmed him for about 4 hours before he popped. I also killed at least 200 sheep. I was logging out when he popped in front of me, and was right next to the road leading to the top level (top level=small with 2 sheep and pile of rocks) the GKT he drops is nice.

My wife and I decided to level sam to 37. I read about this GK at lvl 11, so we decided to camp PHs. So far, 1/1. I went 15 thf for TH1. Not sure if it is 100% or not so was hoping TH would help, but will edit this post if we get hers at the 2 hour mark.

Where I found him: just below the ramp going to the top level.

EDIT: Killed again, 2nd drop. 2/2. Must be 100%, but I did have TH.

I've just gotta say, there was some level 5 nooblet that thought he was going to steal Carnero from me today. Me and a friend of mine were out NM hunting for RNG gear, and I happened to remember Carnero (for the Katayama). My friend checked his Wide Scan and saw that he was currently spawned, so I ran as fast as I could to the 2nd level of the hill, and the lvl 5 DRG gets to him before me. Needless to say, he died rather quickly, so I killed Carnero and go the Katayama for my SAM.

I later sent the DRG a tell, asking him why he attacked Carnero when I got near it. He responded "I wanted to get to him before you did, because i saw you guys were NM hunting earlier. I guess he was too much for me though. Lol." I then proceeded to call him an ***, while at the same time remembering that I had saw him up on the hill in North Gustaberg while me and the same friend were camping Stinging Sophie.

Just goes to show you how much people can be asses on this game...

*Edit - forgot a word XD

Maybe he is an ***, I'm certainly not here to defend him. But that has to be the weakest NM story I've ever heard. It sounds like some kinda weak *** teenager story like, "Whoa, he tried to give me unbuttered popcorn, but I was like...I so totally ordered buttered popcorn man."

He may be a nooblet, but you are certainly a noob.
Haha nooblet! XD
# Mar 22 2008 at 9:22 AM Rating: Decent
Don't really understand why you would call him an *** for that. Even if he was not strong enough, he has the right to camp the nm just as you do, it's not like you were already engaged with it.
Haha nooblet! XD
# Mar 22 2008 at 11:40 PM Rating: Default
AHHH yeah he's an *** everyone knows the he drops a R/EX Great Katana. and all NM in that area are atless lvl 10 and up to fight.
Haha nooblet! XD
# Jul 23 2009 at 8:29 PM Rating: Decent
Well, apparently not everyone does.
# Jan 12 2008 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
He doesn't spawn @ the bottom and walk up thats BS, I killed only the two sheep @ the top and the Two sheep @ I-9 on the second floor and he spawned on the second floor right by the ramp to the top floor. He spawned in sequence with a 5min timer, ie: kill a sheep he spawns again in 5mins. Other ppl were killing sheep on the Hill so idk if those four are only PH's but I think they are. Hope this helps.

Ok I was horribly wrong, walking off the hill saw him @ I-8 2nd level about 5-10mins after I killed him. Good Luck

Here is what I did
# Dec 14 2007 at 1:06 AM Rating: Decent
Just got this about 30 mins ago. Went around and killed all the sheep in the area before I got this NM to pop. It popped on the second level from the top area in I-8. I suggest running laps around the mountain on the highest level and second to highest level killing all sheep in your path. The entire process of traveling to its spawn area, getting the NM to pop and killing it, took me less than 1 hour.

13Sam/6War. 2hr'd with 300%TP. Had about 75hp left.

Hope this helps!

Pop time
# Nov 04 2007 at 8:40 PM Rating: Decent
I've noticed a lot of websites say this is a 2 hour repop. Tonight I camped it for about 2 hours and 10 minutes before it popped, and someone else claimed it so I started killing sheep again. It popped again 30 minutes later. The first place it popped was at I-9 near the ramp going up to the top level of the hill. The second time, it popped in the center of I-8.

I killed all the sheep in I-8 and I-9 on the top two levels of the hill. Although I can't confirm it, I have a feeling one of the actual placeholders for this NM is at least one of the two sheep on the top level of the hill. I believe this to be true because sometimes when I would kill all the sheep around there, only one would repop on the top level.

Anyway, this drop is pretty cool, good luck everyone :)
Lol well now...

# Oct 02 2007 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
He spawned for me on the 3rd floor near the north side of Vomp hill. just wandered around the 2nd and 3rd floor killing all the sheep i saw, after 30 mins he popped.
Not a bad Gk for my new SAM. ^^

I went to the second highest level on the hill killed a sheep in SW corner of I-8 and when I turned around, BAM!! There he was. One hit and one rampage later GK was mine. /dance
<Found It!>
# Apr 03 2007 at 12:22 PM Rating: Decent
This is officially the first nm I have ever camped.
After walking all around the first level of Vomp hill killing Ornery sheeps, I went to the second level, turned the corner and there it was. As a level 23WAR I was able to kill it quickly. It only took 15 minutes to find and kill him. He dropped Katayama. Now I just have to get to level 30 and do the Sam quest.
Easy camping directions:

If you're not familiar with Vomp Hill (as I wasn't being flagged in San D'oria and all), some of the directions in these posts may not make much sense to you. Further, running up and down a spiral hill can certainly lead to some confusion as to what level you're currently on!

Listening to SeraphDak's directions, I ran up to the top of Vomp Hill (easily identified by, well, being at the top... and the pile of stones), ran down one level (so you're second from the top) and started killing every Sheep/Wolf I could find. After 20 minutes of running around I-8 and I-9, the NM popped and I owned it with my lvl 20WAR/10MNK (what?! I just unlocked SAM yesterday!) I found it easier to head to the top and work my way down, but I suppose if you're from Bastok this probably wouldn't be a problem :) Good luck!

Spawned at the very SW corner of I-8, it took like
2 hours or so to spawn it.I killed every sheep on
the 2nd floor the whole way around and went up and
killed the 2 up top as well.

At night the undead dogs spawn in place of the sheep
so you have to kill those to get sheep to respawn there.

My SAMs gonna be pimped going into valkurm dunes now.
I have just high enough clothcraft and goldsmithing
to sign pretty much everything, now the ra/ex katana.
I have way too much free time on my hands.

*Edit- I didn't want to be the guy everyone replied
to and said 'dude learn how to use punctuation'

My first drop on an NM
# Nov 04 2006 at 6:43 AM Rating: Decent
I've only camped 1 or 2 NM's cuz I find camping a waste of time, so I usually wait until I stumble on an NM.

But it was funny, I was on my way back from the dunes with my 20 Bst/rdm. I was about ready to get to the Basty Mines entrance, and I had just gone past the Basty Markets entrance. I look over and wonder "Why in the hell is there a sheep kickin it outside of Basty?". Then I highlight it just in case its another Bst ******** around, and check it out. It says "Impossible to gauge".

But my Bst is at about 1/2 hp, with hardly any mp. So I say "***** it!" cuz its in S. Gustaberg how hard could it be, right? I didnt want anyone else to get claim on him. Well it's a good thing NM's correspond with their respective areas. He only did 40 hps of damage, the whole match. And I smoked him and got the Katayama drop.

It's funny cuz I've never seen this NM, I didn't know what he dropped, and I'm about ready to start leveling my Samarai. And I get this rare/ex drop. Oh, how I love it!!!! I'm gonna love using this on my Samarai for a few levels at 10+!

Sorry to all those who camp these low-level NM's! My bad! But how could I resist when he was kickin it right outside the Basty Markets exit?

Since Sam update looks like heavy camping. I was just up there for about 30 minutes. I think there were about 7 campers, with more arriving.

I've seen it once before, on the west side of the 2nd lvl. I let a friend get claim. I eventually figured out: instead of camping a sheep I COULD BE LVLING SAM. So yeah.

I camped this thing a week ago, heres what happened.

I arrived as a WHM 25/BLM 12. There was one more person camping it. He said that he had been camping it for around an hour so i said i would let him have it if i saw it. Carnero popped around the 2nd Floor of Vomp Hill. He killed it pretty quick being a War 30. I was walking back to bastok when it popped infront of me. I killed it and got the drop. This makes me think that it has a random spawn time because from the time of death to the time of spawn, was no more then one minute. So have patience. Oh ya i only took 10 points of dmg ^^
The PH..
# Oct 21 2006 at 4:37 AM Rating: Default
Can anyone confirm whether the PH is on the first or second levels or if they're just on the third? I've been killing the two sheep on the third level for hours now and he hasn't spawned. Also been killing both of the sheep in his area where he should spawn..
# Oct 19 2006 at 3:19 AM Rating: Decent
After about an hour of looking for this guy on the 1st level of the hill I moved up to the 2nd level and he pop about 15 min later. There were 2 other guys trying to get him to pop on 1st level.....I kinda wish they had stuck around cause I would have told them where to go. 30war/15mnk....so problem whatsoever.
Wasn't That Nice
# Oct 17 2006 at 9:32 AM Rating: Decent
