Tried before on previous character a few times, never got the spawn.
Came through today, killed Panzer... There he is. >.>; Unfortunately, even as a 25WAR, I fell to Mighty Strikes. Had Bloody Bolts with near-capped Marksmanship, and just kept missing when I needed it the most. /sigh

Came back to do what I originally needed to, and found Panzer again... But no spawn. I don't care so much about the sword than I do about revenge, now.

Passing through Ghelsba Fort on multiple occasions for Kazham keys and BCNM fights I've found this guy four times so far. First time I found it I was in a party going to my first BCNM30 Carapace Combatants (Lost by the way due to a bad strategy I thought would work), the other people with me told me that he's used to spawn another NM. Not really in any hurry we beat it down but with no luck on the other NM.

Second time I found him I was headed to my second attempt of Carapace Combatants (Won it and wyvern earring dropped, 150-180k on Seraph when I only had 2k) my party killed it and once again no NM. Got more information on the NM this time and heard it was a good sword for a lower level.

Today I was bored while waiting for Full Moon 100% to do some more Carapace Combatant runs (Bad drops for me, good drops for my LS mate who came) I killed it solo. Never really having killed him solo I didn't realize that the other orc would pop right away with my claim already on him. I'm heading out of the area to check on Hundredscar and I see I'm taking damage for hits of 10-20 damage as 40WAR/20MNK. Lookie here, it's the NM. One hit with my horror voulge took him down to 2/3HP and he uses Mighty Strikes but whiffs on his only other attack.

Just something I noticed about the fight though, when I busted the Panzer I caught no links due too the other orcs being {Too weak} it seems they all turned to attack me. There's no linking with the Orcish Fighter that pops but the NM seems to call them all into action right away. Take care at lower levels, if the NM doesn't kill you and you didn't clear out the other orcs the links it brings will.

Later when my LS mates were ready for the BCNM we busted it again but only the Fighter popped. 1/4 total on the NM pop. Hope the info on the linking thing helps.
This NM sucks...A lot

I'm 0/22 on getting Chariotbuster to pop so far...I would really like to have this sword but I don't know if it's really worth all of this...

EDIT: 1/24 FINALLY!!!!

Hey, it's a post from my old account! Camping this NM on new account 0/10 so far...Hope I have better luck than I did the last time. Come on 1/11!!!

EDIT: 1/15, at least it wasn't 1/24 again...Took him out as a 28BST/14WHM using a HareFamiliar. A couple of orcs linked but it wasn't too hard, one of my HareFamiliars died near the end of the fight after killing off the links but I just summoned another and took Chariotbuster out; I used Cure 2 once and by the end was only in yellow HP. Killed him on Darksday around 15:00 with a 26% Waxing Crescent moon phase. 60 exp and 48 gil along with the sword and a fire crystal. Hope this info helps someone.

0/20 on chariotbuster spawning... damn orcs
Auriga Xiphos lv.19 rare/ex sword
# Dec 02 2006 at 6:21 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, just to clear things up - you kill this in order to get the Chariotbuster Byakzak to spawn south part of (H-8) and its the Chariotbuster Byakzak that drops the Auriga Xiphos lv.19 rare/ex sword.

i went to this guy in hopes of getting the sword for my war. i took my lvl 30 rdm and just cleared out the area. the orcs were too weak but they get agro pretty easily. once i cleared the orcs, i went after the penzer. Blaze Spikes, Enfire and Blink just owned him. but after he was dead, a losy fighter appeared.

so i just sat and waited for the next one, killing the orcs around and makin some raw gil. this thing pops at about 1hr intervals. after he popped again, same thing. this guy is easy to beat, but a pain in the rear end on which comes outta him. so far its been nothing but fighters and not the nm for the sword

I did a Predator Claws and one-shotted him (3 hits if you want to get technical). My fight wasn't very eventful.

No drop.
Not all that hard..

I was soloing the Orcish Grunts, Stonechuckers, and Neckchoppers as a lvl 19 taru NIN/BRD (casting a paeon after a battle to never need to actually /heal), and saw this fella pop up. Deciding to go ahead and give him a shot, I cleared out the mobs north of him, got to about 95% HP and 300% TP and pulled him with Requiem. The moment I started hitting him, I got a little worried. Each katana hit for only 15-20, with Minuet and Meat Chiefkabobs. I dropped Blade:Retsu for a measly 47 damage (the surrounding orcs took 100-140 damage around 100% TP), but I'll be damned if the orc didn't get paralyzed for a good 10-15 rounds. It also seemed to have pretty horrid accuracy.

I managed to drop a second Blade:Retsu for around the same damage, and we just kept chipping away at each other's HP. Unfortunately for me, he critical hit me the moment after my shadows left, and hit me with a Fire Arrow for 53 damage to finish me off. I had 88% TP and had it down to around 15% hp.

For having lvl 16 gear, brd subjob, and slightly underleveled katana skill when first starting the fight, it was really nowhere near as hard an enemy as other people experienced. Something as little as a haste or protect ii could have been enough to change the victor of the match.

Just a heads-up to anyone around level 20 with decent soloing potential (bst, smn, nin, pup). This NM is very possible to beat... not that you'd really want to for much other than bragging rights and decent exp...

As a Lv.67 sam this guy is a push over but the temptation of starting a zone wide train with every orc there is too great sometimes and I must say it's a hell of alota fun havn't gotten the sword from the nm he should drop instead of the fighter

Dude i was watching you last night. Ne amdn my friends were there going to get their keys for the Kazahm Airship Pass and when we got to the zone you were there with about 30 orcs all shooting you. your on Phoenix right cause i doubt this was done by someone else at the same exact time. I was gonna help you buty i dodnt know if you wanted to be killed by them all, (you being a lvl 67 SAM), but yea i was there watching you most of the time.

Running through the area to get to the hot springs, I figured I'd see if this guy was around. Well, they were... And I figured, hey, I dodge everything else around here... >.>
This guy's fairly accurate, and hits pretty darn hard... Not to mention they have decent defense, with a LOT of HP. With... About ten orcs nearby, avoiding a link is almost impossible without clearing out the area [Which, of course, I didn't think of doing].
Took him out, got... 30 or so EXP, and... Eventually fell to the other orcs. A Fighter spawned instead of the other NM, which only further killed me chances of surviving. XD

In other words, I probably wouldn't mess with this guy until... 35 or so.

- Forgot to mention, I was level 30 THF. >.>;

Oh my, never knew this stupid thing was a NM >< I just thought it was there to annoy people >_> I didnt fight it though i actually let a lvl 8 blm solo while i pl'd lol (37smn at time) and honestly it didnt seem to do much to the blm damage wasnt like rapage from what i noticed but it sure was fun watching the fight although the fight did take him about 15mins ^ ^;
but he told me he got good exp off it like 200+ not sure if he got a drop either it was quite awhile ago but hehe. Didnt notice any other nm spawning because i was training quite a few orcs for the blm to pick off one by one if it was in that mess it prolly got {Thunderspark} like the rest of everything when the blm got tired and left :P

Found it while looking for my Kazham key. 24WHM/10BLM at the time and LS told me not to do it. Did it anyways since I hadn't gotten key and didn't feel like doing it myself. Got him down to about half HP when I ran out of MP and had to start beating him with my stick. Got him down a bit more and a couple orcs linked up. Used 2hr and left him at a sliver of health before dying. Ran back up there and couldn't find it again... >.< Probably should've listened to my LS, but if I had been able to go longer without any orcs linking he would've died.

If i woulda known he spawned another nm after you killed him i wouldnt have included him in my train. after training the entire fort ghelsba... i get to the top finally this guy was the first guy on my list to kill. after killing him i created a small server crash which me and the rng with me thought was quite funny. never thought to look for a nm that he spawns but oh well. the rng had a fun time looking at the 100's of orcs around us on wide scan yet we couldnt see them on screen. there went all my gil from farming orcs disappearing on me oh well.
Any drop?

According to the information provided by Allakhazam, there appears to be no drops associated with this NM.

Is this true? I've killed this a few times also and have gotten no drop.... :(

It's a NM that has a chance to drop a NM which has a 100% drop of a good lvl 17 Xiphos.

thankfully he's never camped. Walked in took a snap shot, then killed it. left me 32 gil and a fighter whom i disposed of rather quickly.
Be Careful

Went to the fort and found this thing just wandering around G-8 on the second floor. I was a lvl40 whm, and I wanted the sword for my 20rdm. I dia'd it and proceeded in beating it down... then all of a sudden, I get Water'd by a nearby Neckchopper that spawned. Then I got ranged attacked by a Stonechucker. Next thing I knew, I was surrounded by 5 Orcs and this thing. Stoneskin lasted for about only 20 secs before it wore off. I got to yellow a couple times, but I killed it. Afterwards, Chariotbuster spawned and at that moment, a Flamethrower decided to join the party and so did 3 of its Orc friends. Luckily I had alotta mp left and just spammed Banishga and Waterga to take em all down. When camping this, I'd suggest you clear the area first, unless you'd like fighting an army of Orcs.
Spawn time..?

I wen't up to the fort, Panzer spawned and I killed him.. (Orcish Fighter spawned) 65 mins later he spawned again, killed him. (Byakzak spawned)

It seems to repop on about a steady 70 min timer for me. 0/8 on the lil bugger...starting to wonder if there's a quest related or maybe it's just that bad to get the 2nd NM to spawn. -_-
