Happened across this guy yesterday morning while running around the area in duo killing everything for a few extra levels (was 11 MNK/WAR at that point, lvling MNK for subjob) with an 11 COR/WHM. My partner attacked without realizing what it was, I ran over to help, and 5 minutes later he killed my partner just as landed a critical for the kill. I got the drop since my partner died - luck, once again, on my part, due to the fact that I had 5 hit points left.
easy prey

Killed him yesterday. he spawned right next to Signpost along the path.

17 BLM tarutaru/ no sub, average++ gear, all magic skills uncapped

Used 2 Hi-pots and Manafont and barely survived.

Started off with ES + Bind, lasted about 10 seconds
enagged and nuked like crazy, MF'd 1/2 through fight.
Second bind didnt stick.
Won with about 50 hp left.

I would recommend being at least lvl 18 to fight it. or being 17 w/ all capped skills, and with potions ready.
Not long at all really

This is all coming from my recollections of a pretty rapid fight but I’ll try to keep it accurate, short and pertinent. Yesterday I went to camp Nunyenunc as a 41Bard/5Rng w/ virtually no chr gear and no +skill gear and was joined by a 60+thf/rng so I figured I’d come back another time instead of camping against flee/widescan/steal . Around 1:00 last night I returned and the pop only took about 15 mins. The mob didn’t hit me once at my level with a nerfed sub even though some of the mobs I fought to kill time did. Also, wide scan was only helpful in finding placeholders as Nunyenunc appears to have a pretty limited spawn area and had already aggro’d me or linked something else I was training by the time I knew it was there. Lastly I didn’t sing too many song because I didn’t know what to expect from this nm and I preferred to get the fight over with quickly but not 1 of my foe requiem III or II’s or my horde lullaby (which was intended to stop the other mobs I was fighting at the time) stuck. This is one of the first nms I’ve camped successfully so forgive me if something I’ve said is already common knowledge. 1/1 on the drop and I hope this helps anyone who’s going for the wand. Good luck.
Woo! 20 mins!

Fairly fast pop for me ^^ very happy. Didn't sub rng, because my main is only 24, started this character 4/5 days ago. Anyway, after I got there and killed all 3 crows I went afk, browsed the internet for around 7 minutes. I went AFK by the outpost and when I got back, a crow was usually near me. After I got back, kill the one near the outpost, walked to the center corner of H-5 and killed the one that usually pops there, then I would walk a bit farther and kill the one there, if there was one; sometimes there are two in one point of the "triangle".

Anyway, I was depressed because I just hit 0/1 on Spiny Spipi which took like 2 hours to get it to pop, so I went over here, did 2 runs on the triangle, and there it was. took me 20 minutes to walk from east sarutabura to H-5 of west sarutabura and kill the NM. +2 hMP at this level on a brand new character when I can't afford food, etc. is a GODESEND.

Hope this helps a little for people who want to camp this but don't have rng/bst ^^

Only took 30 mins for it to spawn. Though I wasn't the only one camping it o_O;

It spawned in (H-5) next to the road.

Got the drop ^______^

I camped this nm without competition early morning Monday at about 1:00 AM and was killing the crows that spawned in H-5, H-6, and I-5. Well, the nm never popped after 3 hrs of camping and it was now 4:00 AM and I had work in about 5hrs so I went to sleep pissed and mad that it never popped. Then Tuesday I decide to camp it again. No competition again and started at 10:48 PM now. Well same routine and killed all the crows while killing all the crawlers and bees for items as whm/thf. It was now 1:00 AM and i was getting pissed that it never popped again. So right when i was going to give up I see it pop in front of the OP. Now I read that it spawns in larger areas then described and the Vand'iel Atlas needs to be updated b/c it is a lottery spawn but doesn't spawn where they indicate on map. Nevertheless, finally raped it and got my wand and 3 stacks of honey and beehive chips for my sythn. THX again FFXI for making waste my real life time to claim something!!!!!!!!!!! I am so glad it is a 100% drop b/c i have camped nm's before and lottery's are the gayest and most stupidest thing FFXI introduced in the game!!!!!
Easy Prey

Ok so I was camping this NM for 1hr 30mins and i only killed the Carrion Crows and Crawlers. The reson I killed the Crawlers was for the Spool of silk thread and the Carrion Crows was for the pop. I stood by the tree and killed the only group that was there when i stood by the tree closes to the wall. after only a short amount of time i got 10 silk thread and 12 feathers and then found Nuny. I was my level 41THF/1RNG and killed him and got my Pilgrams wand 1/1.
Found him

I was levelling my BLM (BLM 10 since I just started the game back up). I saw him, tried to take him. I lost. My Home Point was at the Outpost in Saruta, and there were two guys there, so I asked them to come help me kill him. They did, and the wand dropped, but they had one guy as the Quartermaster, so he couldn't trade it to me. We didn't know. :(

I just randomly ran into this guy when I was harvesting in West Sab. I was a 44WHM so I beat him without any effort. He dropped the wand, which is nice..even though I didn't really need it. Non-sellable, too. =/
Not really worth dismounting for

Last night I was choco'ing my 26WAR/12MNK over to Giddeus in (a vain) search for a chest key to complete the Kazham Airship Pass. I was in I-5, just north of the road, tab-spamming to pass the time when I saw this odd name pop up. Not having spent much time in the Windy area, I figured it was a common mob but checked it to be sure and hot dog! Impossible to gauge!

I hopped off the choco, Boosted and dropped Berserk which was, as you can surmise, completely unnecessary. It hit me four times for a total of 7 damage and my Neckchopper and I took him down in 4 shots without any food buffs. I figured that he'd have a crap drop so I did a quick search of the area while fighting and couldn't find a single player who spoke English to /inv.

So now I've got a Rare/Ex wand that I'll never use. I figure that I'll either trade it in to the next R.K. I find our maybe sell it to a merchant for a cool 500 gil to recoup the chocobo ticket out to Giddeus...

Got him 5 minutes ago. He spawned right in the middle of I-5. Killed as many carrion crows as I could find in H-5, I-5 and H-6. Took a little over an hour to spawn. Hope that helps^^

The Pilgrim's Wand is a rare/exclusive item which means that you may only have one in your posession at any time. In order to get another one, you would either have to drop the one you already have... or you could give the Pilgrim Wand to your friend and then nail the NM to get another for yourself...

Hope this helps.

Actually you can't give the Pilgrim's Wand to a friend...
Rare = you can only have one

Ex = exclusively yours
Can't be traded or sent to anyone.
Can't be sold in AH although sometimes you can sell to NPC (the orcish axe comes immediately to mind).

I camped this bird as a level 32 WHM. I was in the area getting Yag necklaces for my fame, and I decided I may as well kill some crows as my MP takes forever to replenish, even with cookies, and I wanted this wand.

I killed birds for about a half hour, with one other person coming to the area a short while later. I was eating my dinner at the time, and the damn thing spawned (H-5) just as I was lifting the fork to eat. I dropped the fork, food went flying, and off I ran to claim my victim. The person who was camping the same NM was a BST, was chasing the bird, and actually tried to charm it to stop me from getting it! LOL! It was like watching a kid in a toy store when there's only one of the toy they want left over! Needless to say, he got the bird, and the wand, leaving me very p***ed off about having to wait for another God knows how long because he shows up, kills NO crows, and gets the damn thing.

Anyway, I kill more crows, ******** and moaning the whole time, and about an hour later, the NM spawned again in the same place. I was that kid in the toy store this time. Luckily, there was no-one else around to steal my precious loot, and I killed him in less that a minute. Got my wand, and my pride back!

Charm doesn't affect NMs, he was trying to claim it himself.

September 8th, 2006, 8:40PM PST USA. Spawned right in the middle of I-5 after two and a half hours of searching.

Pilgrim's Wand dropped (100% must be as others have said).

Keep towards the Outpost. PH's Spawn about every 3 mins I would guess. Took about 1 hour to get mine. Don't forget the 2 PH's North of the Outpost either, but most likely will spawn near OP. Drop is 100% btw. Good Luck!

iNFO: Lottery Pop
Normally takes 1-3 hours to Pop.
Large Spawn Area by the Outpost In West Sarb. /rng very Useful.
Drop rate must be really decent. I am 1/1 killed as [37THF/1RNG]

[Anyone else hate it when ppl talk on and on about this stupid story about killing a NM and they fail to even mention anything useful to the post]

I camped this about a week ago. I killed a whole flock of those stupid crows until about 3 hours into this hunt I was going to give up and as I was walking back to windy killing everything in site out of rage, what do I see but this guy right near the Outpost. I take him for all he's worth hitting him with a thunder and a nicely placed blizzard and BAM hits the ground and I trample over his lifeless body waving my Pilgrim's Wand in victory. Yeah, btw was 49RDM/24BLM so it was a little bit of an overkill...but it was fun.

I just had to share my experience. I'd been killing birds for a while. I'd gotten it pretty much down to a science, even as my level 16 blm (I'd just delevelled tring to get Giddeus key). So I see the NM!!!!! And someone resting by it. Of course, when I ran up they claimed it, >_< I checked them and it was a level 9 NIN. Double >_<. So, I waited for him to die and what did he do??? CFH! He ran over to me like I was going to do something to save him and I slapped him. OK, so maybe he's new. Maybe he doesn't know CFH on the NM you took that I'd spent the last hour popping isn't, well, polite.... Any rate, I watched him die and it went yellow again and then I claimed it. It was a really hard fight. I didn't have blizzard anymore since I'd delevelled and I Manafont about 1/2 way through (only had 62/206 MP left), at one point I was down to 6 HP but I managed to pull it through. I beat him and got the wand!! After all the mess around the claim and the incredibly hard fight, I felt sooo proud of myself. And now I have my resting wand til I hit 51! /joy
