Voluptuous Vilma Does exsist! There are youtube videos on her, pictures all over the net, I mean my gosh people is it so hard to believe that Rose turns into Vilma, same way Noble Mold turns from a normal mushroom, it's just in this case, its 3 phases, Overgrown Rose - Rose - Vilma. And makes perfect sense for the drop ratio to increase as u wait for the Morbol to change over time... its starts as an overgrown, so obviously get ready for it to keep growing i guess.... But Yea Alakhazam, Please update this site and give Voluptuous Vilma the respect and decency by makeing a page for her, which does not exsist on this site, come on alakhazam, other sites are beating your info now -_- /cry....

seen it on ws.. I was only person in entire area, including kazham. Killed it no drop. 10 hours later, kill.. nothing.

another 10 hours later... kill no drop. I cant confirm its 10 hours, i just came back each time and it was already up.

But... for the record to change everyones predictions. I afked it just before work this morning. killed within the hour after i left. 2 conquest tallys later.... it was killed again in my log. then i got home after work, did some stuff around the house and counted all the tallys...10 since second kill. sat 30 mins...went for a smoke came back and it was up.

Thats 3 within a 12 hour frame...one being only 2 hours (conqeust tallys)apart.

I took screen shot of the kills and tallys in log. I post them later when i get around to uploading them to photobucket.

Vilma does exist. Its not lies, And this is not a fake.
Ive personally seen it pop, and can confirm the ring is not a 100% drop i would say it's more of a 50% drop rate on vilma. Which is sensational next to Rose garden's 7% drop rate on the ring.
What i suggest new campers to this thing do is talk to your fellow campers, ask them "Let's leave Rose garden for 21-24 hours, Only claim garden if someone else turns up/Logs in/Jumps off a choco"
That worked perfect for me.
1/2 Vilma
0/9 Rose garden
Go figure.

1/3 after 3 years of camping off and on. dropped when I killed SAM/THF. Also, gave ToD do a friend and he got drop the next pop which was 10 hours and 20 minutes later. So that was 2 rings in a row that dropped. Second kill was THF75.

To Glamrist: Although it would be nice to see VV pop the thought of leaving Rose Garden alone is completely ridiculous. You think theres a chance that people who want this ring would sit there together staring at a mob that has a chance to drop the ring they came for? Its a nice thought but unfortunately, this is still earth...
Also, just because something exists in the DAT files does not mean it exists in game ; ; sorry.

If someone, somewhere has actually seen this NM (VV) a screenshot would be nice although proving VV exists wouldnt stop others from claiming the NQ NM.

Lastly, I have personally seen RG pop and I want to add for any future campers that your cursor will get retargetted. The mobs basically despawn and spawn at the same time, so while one is fading in the other is fading out. When you tie this to another rumor about Rose Garden despawning if not claimed for 1 hour, it suggests the possibility that if you come back to your computer and you have nothing targetted, its possible the NM popped and was not claimed for 1 hour ; ;

Finally got this awesome ring... 1/8.

For those of you who are getting frustrated with this NM, don't despair! Just keep at it and sooner or later you HAVE to get it. When I finally got this ring, there was another JP camper there who is 0/73... so just be thankful you aren't him. :o

RG and Vol. Vilma
# Aug 26 2007 at 9:58 PM Rating: Decent
OK Let's first start by saying this... Voluptuous Vilma does exist!!!! There is no mistaking this, I promise. As most of you know it takes 9-12 hours for Rose Garden to spawn. The same rule applies about agroing and claiming overgrown rose to spawn Rose Garden. So if someone agros or claims Rose Garden, then V.Vilma timer is reset. It takes 21-24 hours after Rose Garden spawns to respawn into V.Vilma, without anyone agroing or claiming Rose Garden.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM and REASON NO ONE HAS SEEN IT ON MOST SERVERS. EVERYONE claims rose garden as soon as they see it... hoping for a ring that is very low drop rate.... congrats to you all who are 1/1 cause im 0/4 with TH4 anyway.... V.Vilma is said to have a 100% drop rate of the Vilma's ring. So if ppl learn some patience on our servers then we will see V.Vilma..... good luck and fun camping!!!!


I just used a hex editor to view my DAT's, ROM2\13\99.dat, Voluptuous Vilma does exist!!! Here is my screenshot and i used paint to circle the names, other than that everything is original in my screenshot!!!

VV time and TH
# Jul 12 2007 at 2:06 PM Rating: Decent
They need to add Voluptuous Vilma as a NM on here.

Firstly id like to know if anyone has has any info at all regarding the drop rate of Vilma's Ring with TH. I personally am 0/4 atm with TH3 so i have my doubts on its effects but am managing to kill it every 9-12 so i hope it wont be too long till it drops.

Secondly, not that i would expect many ppl with info on this bbbuutt does anyone have any idea on the Rose Garden to Voluptuous Vilma time? Is it possibley the same 9-12hrs or would it be alot longer and reason for its very rare sightings?

Anyways, thx in advance for any info left and gl to anyway camping this also, it will be worth it in the end ^^b

Yesterday I was in Yuhtunga Jungle helping some friends and after I was done I go wandering around. I havent been there in over a year so I want to go exploring.

I see a Overgrown Rose that checked EP so I rest mp cure myself to full rest again (drg/pld) and go attack it just to see if I can take it. Halfway in to the fight I get checked by four people and some one tells me I messed him up. I replied that I was sorry if took his kill and I didnt mean to. I didnt see anyone in the area at all.

By now I have the thing almost dead and the guy that told me that I messed him up tells me that if it isnt killed for 8hr a NM spawns witch sucks because if I stop I die and I cant warp or anything. I respond that I had no idea and say that Im sorry. It is dead now so I tell the others that arrived that I was sorry and I didnt know.

One poor guy told me he had been waiting for 9.5 hr. :(

What is the spawn time for this? I was told 8 then one guy said he had been waiting for 9.5.

I would not have attacked it if one of the campers told me not to. Even if they just said "Dont attack the Rose" I would have stopped to ask why.

To all the people that I messed up I apologize I really had no idea. I will never do this again because it must suck to wait that long and have some one mess it up.
It seems we have idiot person on every server

On Sylph as well. Today I've camp it for 9.5hr+ but the guy named Mikebarnes came with his summoner and kill it. I was pissed :( and what I can do is /blist him.
I don't mind if anyone kill Overgrown Rose when nobody there but please don't kill if there somebody camping it.
# Mar 25 2007 at 11:49 AM Rating: Decent

I don't think there are adequate words to express how unfair this NM's spawn conditions are amongst the amount of pure retards that exist on my server. A couple months ago when I decided I wanted this ring, we would have some random ******* come up to the camp and laugh at everyone and kill the PH. She did this almost every time I was at camp at some point or another.

I got so frustrated for wasting hours of my time sitting there, when I could've been doing something else, just to have this person show up and destroy it. I was so mad, that I just tried to forget the NM. It seems that person forgot about it, too, because for the past few days I've been camping, they have not been around to kill the PH and /laugh at me.

The reason I sit there for hours, locked-on, with my log up, is because there would be no other way for me to know if the PH was messed with thus messing up the ToD, which is why just going by the ToD doesn't work.

Now, about 20 minutes ago, some random noob on my server ran up and killed the PH after I had been sitting there with it locked-on, undisturbed, for about 9 hours.

My advice to anyone thinking about this NM: if you are on a particularly crowded server, like Asura, or your server has a lot of idiots on it who, for example, like to make their character name their full RL name, do not bother with this NM. It will drive you crazy. Just go buy or try to BC an Astral/Serket ring, it would probably be a better money/time investment than this stupid NM.

I sit here wondering why the hell they even made this thing to be this way. Maybe because Japanese players aren't this stupid and inconsiderate, they didn't think this would happen. Well, gg.

After being 0/4 on RG I finally got Vilma's. Soloed as 63 THF/NIN, capped Eva and Marksmenship helped alot, the day before I tried as 62 THF/NIN and wasn't doing enough damage without boltz so I called out my NPC. Fireing off Acid boltz and bloody bolts helped counter RGs Auto-regen in between swings. Finished the battle with 700+ health out of 1100 so RG wasn't too hard. Started the Battle with Sneak Attack + Dancing edge for 700+ which only brought her down to 85%~. Other than that though it was a standard battle. Now if I can only get a Rain Hat my mage jobs would be set.

um... probably not, maybe with your NPC in Tanking mode and the same level as you.... I did it as 60THF/RNG and barely survived. If it wasn't for my NPC curing me 3-4 times I would have been toast.
Voluptuous Vilma

The pics of Voluptuous Vilma come from a character that was taken to the test server for some type of all-server-wide ballista event or something. It's said that he/she outpost warped out there and rushed over and took the pics. It wasn't me that took these pics. This is just people talking, but it makes the most sense to me.
My ring drop
# Dec 21 2006 at 6:11 PM Rating: Decent
I got Vilma's Ring today on Asura. Killed Rose Garden at 4:52 CST. I went there and waited since it was 10 hours after maintenance. Popped right on time for me. I finished up 1/4 on him, so I consider myself very lucky. Funny side note, in the middle of the fight I threw on my Dream Hat and Dream Robe from the Starlight Celebration, thinking it might help me have a merry X-mas :)

If I could give any advice on this NM, I'd say try your best to work with the other campers. If your servers are like Asura, there were 3 or 4 guys that were camping this often. We talked together, and when one of us couldn't make a spawn time, we passed the ToD on to someone else. This works so much better than killing the PH for a ToD. If we all did the kill-PH-and-go-to-bed-method, we'd never see Rose Garden. Because of some cooperation, now the other guys have one less person to compete with. ^^ Big thanks to the others campers, especially Graograman and Raain. Got the ring and met some decent players too.

Got the ring wasn't bad
approximate tod
# Dec 10 2006 at 8:21 AM Rating: Decent
There is a conquest talley every hour on the hour that will show up on your log. If someone does happen to kill the PH while your camping it and are AFK then you can have an approximate tod on the PH. Just count the nuber of tallies since "Player defeats Overgrown Rose" or your follow is canceled and you can have some idea of when it was killed last.

First Time

Killed Overgrown Rose and went to bed, 10.5hours later I logged in and to my suprise it was up! Buff up and started meleeing. Wasn't too bad for 64RDM/BLM. Had to Convert once, luckily I didn't get silenced and 26 EXP and a Wild Pineapple so 0/1.
wish i could just claim this thing once >.>
# Dec 04 2006 at 5:42 PM Rating: Decent
lucky for you guys >.> i've been camping RG for a long time now and it will never pop. here on hades we have a jp player by the named on Linkle who likes to come in twice a day, everyday and kill Overgrown Rose to ruin the chances of RG poping ever. other campers have told me the same and have reported it to GM many times [7-8 people] and GM won't do anything about it, but hopefully soon enough this person might miss a day or two giving me chance to get lucky once. as of now lately no one has bothered camping RG so i have an advantage but yesterday this 75 nin seen me get to camp and lock my target on OR and decided to kill it on purpose... boy i wanted to literally strangle the guy... wish they would change this to lottery or just force pop or something... GM would rather let idiots continue to just **** off other players instead of dealing with this concern. anyways my time will come someday^^
