I made the effort of camping this NM a few days ago and killed him as 75RDM/NIN with no fanfare... he popped with about 6 other Yags with him. With no drop, I noted ToD and came back the next day. He spawned about after I killed him the day before 24 hours - 2 hours 20 minutes so that puts him at 21hrs 40mins for respawn on this run.

Killed him again (no drop) 0/2. I'll give it one more shot in about a week, because I can't do it any sooner. Here's to good hunting if anyone gets the drop on him before I do.

Bumped into this guy while heading to Castle Oz, no clue what he dropped but pulled him anyway. Short fight for Thf75, took maybe 100dmg from his ninjutsu while my shadows were down, got drop (TH4). Looked up item seems very nice, dissapointed Dnc cant wear it as planning to level soon.

My brother just got these today. He's 0/2. He seemed a little harder the second fight, none the less it was an easy fight for him, 59MNK =/. He was first seen at the bottom of K-7 then on the second time at the top of it on the right side of the mountain. ToD ~10: 45 Phoenix server. Happy hunting!

Eidt: 10:45 Pacific Time. Oh and my country was under control if that helps =/.

The short version: I solo* pwn3d this badboy as a sam44/war22 last night. 0/1

The long version: Two night ago I was running to the ??? at K8 for the DRG quest and was about to log. As I turned around to start the run back to Jeuno, I noticed a named Yag walking up one of the ramps toward Castle O. and my NM radar went haywire. I pinged my LS, asking if anyone knew the lvl or drop of the NM but none of them had even heard of him. I followed Coo around for awhile before I realized my 2-hr and Signal Pearl both had about 45 minutes worth of cooldown left on them and decided that I probably shouldn't chance it. A 75NIN choco'd by, hopped down and we both stood there waiting for the other to claim. I {/bowed} to him, he nodded, and engaged. I watched him go to town on Coo and and was a bit disappointed that I didn't try first, so I logged.

I checked in here yesterday morning, read about the spawn timer/level and decided that I'd give it a go. I logged in 10 minutes before his pop, Meditated, called my NPC buddy Sieghilde (does that still count as soloing?) and waited. At the exact 21 hour mark I saw Coo Keja jogging towards a Yagudo Piper all by himself. After reading all of the other posts about links of 4-8 yags I was a bit worried, but there were no {too weak} Yags anywhere near him. I saw another camper in the area, popped a mithkabob and 'voked...

Part I of the log
Part II

...My screenshot software wasn't working for some buggy reason, so I snapped these with my phone. All told the fight took under a minute to complete and he only landed ~150 damage and 17 on my NPC. I didn't want to use Berserk, since I was afraid of him landing Mijin Gakure when my Third Eye was down but it looks like I didn't really need it. Sure, I 2-houred, but I'd say he's easily soloable at 44 if you know your job... and have an NPC buddy to cast Silence on him when he's got under 100 HP remaining >.>

ToD: 7:04pm, EST, Remora. Next respawn today, ~4:00pm EST. Hopefully your luck with the drop is better than mine!
An update concerning linking....

Sunday night I was running back from Castle O. after (un)successfully camping Mee Dagi and saw a large cluster of Yag hanging out by the ramp in the K-8 area. Sure enough, the on in the middle was Coo Keja. Remembering the beatdown I gave him last week (for no drop) I decided to try my luck again and followed the Yag around for a couple of minutes waiting for them to disband. Coo was surrounded by one of each type of Tier-2 Yagudo (Votary, Theologist, Priest and a Piper for good measure) and I really wasn't looking forward to the links so I continued to wait. And wait. And wait. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear that the normal Yag surrounding Coo Keja (as in, touching) didn't move until the NM did and when they began walking away from the NM, they'd quickly cluster back up around him. So, if you're camping him, have a -ga spell ready or be prepared for the possibility of major linkage.

I decided to engage and whomped him & the links no problem (as a SAM 51 this time), but it was completely different behavior then he showed the last time when he was wandering about solo. 0/2, and even I don't even need this damn drop, it's starting to become personal.

Finally got the Ajase Beads from this guy after holding his TOD to myself for almost a full week.

From what I can tell, he is pretty much EXACTLY a 21 hour pop (maybe a variance by a few minutes at the most). He likes to spam all kinds of Ninjutsu... especially Utsusemi, but thats nothing a Diaga cant handle.

I killed him as a level 44-45 BST/WHM. He generally goes through about 2 Courier Carries per fight, so that should give a general idea on his toughness.

Although I'm happy to have gotten this drop (I'll get much use out of it), its sad that I wont be hunting this NM anymore. This is the first 21 hour pop NM that Ive ever held to myself... he'll always have a place in my heart :)

Thanks for the fun Coo Keja--good luck with whoever hunts you next.

I killed this guy as a Blm the first 3 out of 4 times after he was introduced on our server. Never got the drop though...

I would nuke him, sleep him, then rest, and repeat.

I just stumbled upon this guy on my way to Castle Oztroja. I was out as 61 monk/30 thf. I only lost 155 hp even with Mijin Gakure, I got the drop too. I found him at K-8.

I know there's a bit of debate over respawn time (I didn't read everything) but if anyone wants to check the respawn time, I just killed him at about 3:30 PM EST on Ifrit Nov 29.

good luck
Spawn timer is wrong
# Nov 16 2006 at 7:22 AM Rating: Decent
I've confirmed that the 21 hours to 21 hours 15 minutes spawn timer is NOT CORRECT.

I camped him after the Nov.13 maintenance from 21 hours to 22 hours 30 minutes. He did not pop. There was no competition, and I watched a wide area around Castle Oztroja. It's possible that this is a 21-24 hour spawn.
Nasty, nasty guy.

Lakshmi ToD: 3:54pm MST

No drop.

This guy's a SERIOUS *******. I'm a 60THF/war and he took me to 254 w/o Bloody Bolts. I was in full DEX gear for SA and landed a 182 on him. My Dancing Edges did 400-ish, ridiculous.

Don't attempt to kill this thing if you're not geared well, and I'd guess 55+ on most jobs.

Just solo'd as DRG46/THF23 whilst farming Coeurls.
The word "just" has dual meaning:
1) I did it just now
2) I only just did it.

Coo Keja the Unseen HP: 2400 Roughly.
He uses -Ichi nukes and Utsusemi, the nukes are easy and all his ninjutsu are easy to interupt. He didn't Mijin Gakure me, well it didn't in the chat log.

I only had one problem with a link, killed him afterwards.
From Coo Keja I got 27Exp and 66Gil as DRG46/THF23 :D
1/1 on Drop now! {/hurray}

Coo Keja the Unseen

Job: Ninja

21:00 - 21:15 hour spawn

The spawn timer is percise, the window starts at 21 hours after death and ends 15 mins after window starts. it WILL pop within 15 mins of the 21 hour window.

At approx. 20% health he uses Mijin Gakure and stands back up to continue hitting you, when he spawns he has 2-3 "Followers" which consist of random types of Yagudos that spawn in the area.

Level to fight about 50-55 depending on what job you're using. I fought him as thf47/rng and had to flee to zone as i delt about 200 dmg and took off a small ammount of HP while i was in orange, met my GF near zone (Achren) she used thunderIV and cureIII to get hate off me and it died fairly easily, Mijin gakure took off 104 dmg to me as thf47 and 112dmg to achren as blm75.

1/2 on Ajase Beads.

Got the ToD from an Ls member who beat him while Coeurl farming. Went to check the following day, though I was an hour late but he was still there. What I found odd was there were 2 Yags that followed him wherever he moved, it seemed to coincedental to be by chance cause it looked like a Smn/Bst/Drg with their pets...just trailing behind very closely.

I soloed him as 67 Drk easily. He did use Mijin Gakure and got up again but hardly did damage. No drop though after a Cross Reaper buried him.

Got a pt invite to the Tree and on the way I decided to check on him, there were some campers in front of Castle O but he was located pretty far from the front of the Castle. Claimed him and killed him again. No drop -_-;

Coo Keja the Unseen? I clearly saw him...
# Mar 03 2006 at 9:24 PM Rating: Decent

So today, I was heading to Castle Oztroja to camp Mee Deggi the Punisher to pay off some old debts I have. Earlier in the day, I was looking at this exact page, and talking with a friend of mine about how cool the Ajase Beads would be for Promyvion, especially for my WAR/NIN.

So, I head out on Chocobo, and I see Coo Keja the Unseen just standing there.

So I Provoked Coo Keja and he realized quickly that he had been seen. Something like this:


So I handle Coo Keja like all of my other NM's, and I finally beat him and I get this:


Yep, 1/1 with TH2, LV63 THF. I have no idea what his spawn conditions are, but its an easy fight. If it's truly a 21-24 hour pop, I'd suggest that you do it after maintenance.
Seen him, haven't fought him

Just saw him yesterday when I was going to do Oztroja to do Windurst Rank 3-1. He was roaming around area K-8, right in front of the ramp going up to the Castle's entrance. Of course this was also on the Xbox 360 beta server right after maintenance and I wasn't nearly high enough to fight him (25 MNK/WAR). But seeings how I was the only soul in the entire mountains, it was no surprise why he was still alive.

Worse off, he was surrounded by (kid you not) 8 yags. Now whether or not this is typical of him, not sure (never seen him as Raem, but then again never outright pursued him). The yags, being loyal as ever to the NMs that put them in their place, surrounded him like a posse. Godspeed to whoever wanted to take him on. Glad my walking bird kept me safe.
Ug, damn 21 hour timer.

So I basicly sat there from 4pm to about 12:30am with nothing. Checked in at 4:30am, no dice, 7:30am, no dice, 9:15am, no dice, 10:30-11:00 no dice, checked in at 1:20 which is 21 hours later, and no sign. My only guess is that I missed him from 12:30-1:30 since I couldn't check as consistantly. Anyone have any helpful tips to going about killing this guy? I think people just see him on their way to Oz and get him, which sucks cause it's not competitive enough to where I have to pay attention, just random people come and could kill ;; Would it just be better to check in for about an hour and leave and just repeat? >.>
I would like to get this, but if I have to waste another full day, then it's just not worth it.

Argle, it seems like this guy is mainly just killed by people running by, people who I would have no clue would have killed it. I am begining to think that it really isn't worth it since Windi is rarely in control of many things, but at the same time I want it damn it XD

This guy (like several other NMs added at the same time) spawns within 15min, 21hrs after its ToD. And there are no placeholders for them, so taking ANY break can cost you a ToD/kill. These NMs you need someone to tell you the ToD, be extremely lucky to see it (claimed/unclaimed), or wait for after a maintenance to camp. Otherwise... you will probably just waste your whole day. Especially if you take breaks (which you should).

I feel for you. I saw him a long time ago when I was trying to solo Magicites. JP Pld camped him for 4 days straight (lol died 4 times trying to solo).

Notorious for being in the vicinity of every known case of money missing from a cookie jar. However, since no witnesses can testify to seeing him at the crime scene, no charges have been pressed against him.

Anyone think I could kill this guy as DRK54/THF27? I think this would be great because Sand d'Oria is almost always in first on Ramuh, and i would use this over the Spike Necklace any time.

Yes, you can kill him. I am currently 54 WAR/27 THF. was no problem for me. He can be a pain when he has linking yags, so keep area clear. His 2hr (ninja) doesnt hurt that badly, however... he can do it more than once. Enjoy whoopin this pukns ***, I have killed him 8 times and no neclace. Have fun!
whats the pop time on him?
# Nov 23 2005 at 10:40 PM Rating: Default
i was helping a friend get the 2nd magicite, and when we left castle oztroja i noticed him, i was at 3/4 hp (around 600) WAR/NIN. I claimed him, and my friend who was a whm/blm at the time. I was whoopin' him, but 4 yags came from nowhere and linkned. I could have killed him, but my mage friend was worried about curing me, oh well... after used nin 2hr, he calmly walked away. A mnk that was watching stared in amazement at my defeat and then claimed him, killed him. I didnt even bother to ask if he go the drop. I invited him to help, but he declined. I want to go camp him, show him that he doesnt have a chance if i have full hp. Please, if someone knows anything, please post pop requirements or times, whether he's lottery or has a placeholder. thank you :)

Just killed this guy as 51drk/25rdm, saw it right outside castle oz. Was heading there to look for a coffer, and noticed him. Never heard of him b4, but i figured he couldn't be too high lvl, so i quickly claimed. Unfortuntely, about 4 yags that were around him linked, so i just killed them off one by one. Once it was just me vs him, he went down pretty easy. Mijin Gakured at about 25%, i had to blood weapon >.>. BUT! i got the drop, i was pretty shocked myself lol. This thing is actually good for drk, and i had no idea it even existed lol.

Spotted this guy on widescan last night while i was killing coeuls, not knowing a thing about him I took him on. My sense of adventure was soon deflated when i saw he could barely land a hit on me. -(57 BST/THF, no pet)- He 2 houred, no drop.

Looked him up afterwards and read about the 21 hour theory and the prety nice drop, so came back tonight 20 hours after killing him. Much as reported, he spawned EXACTLY on the 21 hour mark. Got him promptly and got the beads :)

First time, he spawned on the south side of the spine near the castle. tonight he spawned in the middle of K-7, which i wasnt expecting. You dont need to worry TOO much about random passers-by to get him before you, since both those spots are not normal travel spots.

Happy Hunting.
Ps: Earlier today my friend and I ran into the Quadav equivalent of this guy. Shield dropped 1/1.
