Bumped into the Tremor Ram yesterday in Konschtat Highlands while making my way back to the Dunes. The drops were a ram skin and horn.

I got bored a few nights ago and went from Bastok to Valkurm beating mobs with my Lotus Katana that I had gotten earlier this year for the event and I found him wandering around, okay I am a LVL 20 BLM / 08 WHM and I took him down. No drops though. :( I think I may try to take him on again to see if I can get drops. I'll tell you what though it was a long and hard task to beat his butt though, I was so tempted to use my -ga spells but there were too many other sheep around. So I used Manafront and Elemental Seal and used all my enfeebling magic and my Blaze Spikes to take it down slowly while hitting it for 1 damage with my Lotus Katana. I had 13 health left at the end of the fight. :P

Two guys stopped and watched the last part of the fight almost betting eachother that I was gonna die.
Die, stupid sheep

Just killed my first one of these today. On my way back from Bastok on a chocobo, spotted it, thought what the hell and kicked its ***. I been killed by these before at low levels so really it was just an excuse to kill something big that annoyed me. Died pretty fast against a lvl25 war/10 rdm (look I needed barpoison for farming crane flies ok?)

Dropped 4 skins, 2 horns a beastman's seal and an earth crystal. Rock on. Goin back to farm some more of these I think! Can teleport to Dunes straight from Sandy, so should be easy enough to travel.
i love him

these are quite a bit of money, on Seraph the horns are going for 4500, and the skins around 1000 but i dunno how much 12 stack of hides sells for, i know 12 stack of sheep leather is like 55k so i farm these then in between spawn times, i kill sheep for skin and tp, not a bad bit of money either

No, they were talking about Tremor ram. I have yet to kill one and not get something. I usually get at least one horn, and two to three skins per kill.

Simple Story
# Aug 06 2005 at 2:44 AM Rating: Decent
I was working on the quest for the purple belt.. So of course I had to fight these guys to get their nm form to pop. Before I started hunting them, I bought a replica maul for a quest in Bastok and since I'm a crazy monk, I decided to fight with the maul. After killing just 1 with the maul and running around beating other things to death with it, I went back to the spawn point draggin a skeleton with me. Instead of this dude, the lesser nm form popped, so I started fighting it with the maul.. Not really a good idea as a lvl 45 mnk with 29 skill in clubs.. I raised my club skill about 5 points in the fight and was starting to run low on hp, so I used a quick chakra and switched to my claws to finish it. Overall a nice little end to my day. For those lower level players out there, stay away from rumbling and stomping for a while. I still need to remember to see what happens when you use hundred fists with a replica maul.. Anyways, I've managed to get an average of 1 horn and a skin or two from each kill, no thf sub or anything.

P.S. Moral of this story is.. Beware of crazy monks in jacked up armor carring around a crappy maul. (Ignore them and they'll just keep smacking monsters around with it..)
I love dying it seems.

I ws bored and wanted to die for mo particular reason, so I decided to cast Dia on it at LV5rdm/2thf. lmao I hit kill on me. Sweets! 106 damage and I fell on my face.

I need a life...seriously.

In other words...unless you have a eath wish like me...don't fight him at LV5 lol XD

Well, I have decided to share my knowledge of these beasts, for what reason I do not know.
First off these are soloable once you reach the 20's (depending on job). I personally have killed well over 10,000 of these, yes no joke 10,000. I have funded my Rng from lvl 30 to my current lvl 63 by farming these rams in the highlands.

Spawn Areas

There are 2 seperate rams in this zone. The first spawn area is west of the craig. The second is just south of the zone to Valkurm Dunes. These areas where they spawn are huge, as a 60 Ranger my widescan finally covers the whole area. If you are using /Rng you will need to move arround during the time you think it will spawn in order to cover there entire spawn radius.

Now for the Timing part.

Each of these 2 rams are on a sepertate 10 min timer. From the time the one dies another will pop in its area 10 min exactly from ToD. The best way I have found to do this is I kill one, lets say I kill the one in the north. I then make a note of the time on my clock, lets say it falls dead at 2:22. I then run to the south zone and begin spamming widescan. When this one pops I run to it and try to kill it exaclty 5 min after the first one died 2:27. Why 5 min appart you ask? This gives my Flee timer a chance to reset, since both mobs are on a 10 min timer if I kill them 5 min appart then every 5 min a ram will pop and I can flee to both of them. I then move back to the north spawn area I know the first one died at 2:22 so 10 min from that time 2:32 the next will pop. There is no need to spam widescan from this point on since you know when and where(somewhat) they will pop. Watch your clock and at 2:32 start checking widescan. If you don't see it right away move a little bit one way or the other and continue to scan, the spawn area is huge like I stated earlier. Mark down the ToD and then head to the south spawn area and contine this process till your inventory is full.

The drops.

I always farm these rams with sub /Thf. Mainly for TH but Flee is a added bonus. On average each Ram drops 1-2 horns and anywhere between 2-5 skins. This will fill your inventory very quickly. To make this highly profitable spend a couple days and get you leathercraft skill to 29-30. This is what turns these rams into a goldmine. Not needing to go unload your inventory every 30 min adds time out farming and thus adds gill in you pocket. Ram leather can be made with Leathercraft 35(cap). The recipe is one Ram skin, distiled water, Winurstian Tea Leaves and a Dark crystal. The only ingrediant that costs anything is the crystals. The water can be bought from various npcs all over for 12 gil, and the tea leaves are only 20 gil at a npc in windy (walls I think??) near the gate exit to W. sarbutara.
You can sinth these in between pops out in the field as you farm. The crystals sell for 6-7k a stack on my server and the rest is cheap, so total cost of materials per stack is 7,320 gill. One stack of leather sells in jueno for 26-29k!!!! (server dependant) Thats 21k profit per stack and this can be made in 3-4 ram pops or 15-20 min!!
The horns are just a little extra bonus. They sell for 2-3k each in jueno and windy. These do not stack and are somewhat of a pain to unload. When I go into a farming spree I can fill an entire mule with these, nearly 100 horns. Your best bet is to check AH sales history and send a tell to the people on the list. Usually they are leveling bonecraft and will need alot. Sell them at a discount to unload them fast.
I would estimate farming these with no other competition and bieng able to sith while your farming you can make anywhere from 40-60k/hour. If there is other farmers particularily with flee competition will be rough and this number could drop to 10-30k/hour.

Hope this info helps and happy hunting.

charm... it

If your a high/mid lvl bst like in your lvl 30's... do u think with proper gear such as noble ribbon, bird whistle, hope rings x2, etc youed be able to charm it... cause that'd be fricken sweet. How bout takin this guy to the dunes and all you here and feel as u walk thru the dunes is the rumbling, rampaging, loud roar of the ram behind you. And every1 around will be in aw as they see you take down a lot of fricken mobs. As well as your own mob... but you can just head over to the highlands and grab another tremor ram or go to the la theina and grab a rampaging ram.

Maybe it's just me, but Rams seemed to have gotten a downsizing as of late. They seem... a little smaller than they used to. Maybe it's just me.

Spotted him while riding a Chocobo to Bastok and he checked as decent challenge so I said "Why not?" Dismounted and went for him with my level 23RDM/11WAR. The drop was two ram skins and two ram horns.

My first, so I was very proud.
I found it!...once...

I am a lvl 20 galka mnk/rdm built my TP up to near max cast dia on this thing then did a boosted combo, continued to whack away. got TP upto 100 did boost combo again and he fell, leaving me with over 1/3 of my HP, it checked as a tough. crap part was only getting 1 ram skin and I would say the fight took about 2 minutes and gave me 140exp.
crappy drops? no
# Jan 15 2005 at 10:31 PM Rating: Decent
If you level leathercraft to about 35, which is about 200-300k these guys are money machines, u just have to have the right job.
# Dec 30 2004 at 4:09 PM Rating: Decent
why do people kill this monster? it has crappy drops
RE: f
# Feb 02 2005 at 1:03 PM Rating: Decent
With TH1 I get about 3-6 skins per kill and 1-2 horns. Adding that all up is 3-6k per kill. Also given the fact I have my crafting up, I can synth the horns into horn arrowheads then arrows, which I quiver and stack. I also make leather out of the hides. All in all I pull about 50-70k an hour farming these.

I was in the highlands and I was farming the Thunder Elemental with a friend. We had killed 4 that day. And the Tremor Ram appeared right behind us, we were both low on MP (this was at like level 19-21) So we decided to just ignore, A lower level Warrior took on the Tremor Ram with the aid of a high level WHM.
Well we decided to go farming again for the Thunder Elemental a couple days later and as well, kill the Tremor Ram.
We werent the only ones with the idea. I was standing between the 2 windmills and i had just turned to look in the opposite direction when the Ram spawned right behind me yet again and a lvl 75 RNG shot him and killed him >< and right after that the Thunder elemental spawned and the RNG killed that too... We had been waiting for 3 hours for both spawns ; ;
I was sad...

I soloed tremor today with 20drg/10thf, twice in a row. It checked as tough. I dont expect it to be a record or anything just wondering what the lowest anyone's beat it at.
