I fought this guy 4 times yesterday and 2 days ago, and I have to say, he's not very bad at all. As a 36 BLM, I was hitting him for my normal nuke damage (around 150-200 with a II spell), and he was only hitting me for 30-40 (about the same damage as a Shrieker in the caves there.) Got a 1/4 drop with only TH. Easily beat him with a 60 BLM and WAR, and with a high 50 MNK. Very good gloves for a BLM who's tank is having trouble holding hate. Good to macro in with Seer's Mitts +1.

I noticed something when i faught him for the drop, I originally went there to help a freind but arrived early so I thought I'd fight him myself, was Too Weak to a 72WAR/36NIN, got drop. Then my freind came and we killed it 7 times no drop. I thought, Hmmmm maybe cause I already have them he can't get them, idk, so I dropped mine and we faught him again and got drop. Tested it again, killed him myself and got drop, then a freind came that needed it, we tried while I had them and 0/4, i dropped mine and he got his, then i just faught it again to get my 3rd pair lol. So by me experience, if someone in your party has them, you won't get drop, who knows I could be wrong, just a suggestion.

I'm 2/7 on this one, 1/4 Soloing and 1/3 in a party, after my friend got hers we killed another and no drop, then we disbanded for my next pop and no drop, so i popped one last time solo and i got drop... so maybe you can't get it when someone else in the party has them... but I'm not entirely sure either (oh and i killed 2 times solo before we both went)

Just took my 50 rdm to fight this thing trying to get the cuffs for my blm, no drop but ended up with 15 xp so that should put it around lvl 43-45 right?
Drop Rate su><0rz

I helped a lvl 43 WHM Tarutaru friend of mine fight this with my 45THF, we went 0/4 on drop even with TH2
Easy Drop

I fought this with 2 LS memebers 70+ and got 3 cuffs in 5 drops. 60% for me.
Wrong Info
# Aug 05 2005 at 6:24 PM Rating: Decent
For starters, he's a Funguar, not an Opo-Opo.

And I sent a Screenshot. Don't know why they didn't use it

But yeah the Cuffs are like a 30, 40% Drop rate.

I have noticed that about alla, you can write a wonderfull writeup, have a screenshot, and detailed information. Submit it, and they end up using bits and parts of it or none at all. Strange
My fight.

Well I fought this mob as a 40 Taru BLM with my 30 Taru npc. Popped him and started fighting him. Could tell it was going to take a while since my spells was only taking small chunks out of his hit points. Got him to about 75% health he used Silence Gas on me for 394 and killed me. Went back later with a LS member killed it once and got drop.

Fought as 64 WHM / 32 BLM
Got owned solo, but survived

Virus, Silence, Bio 2, Poison 2 and other BLM goodies

Drop rate sucks, but VERY worth it
Got the gloves

Solo'd this mob as a 48 WHM. Hardest part about it is that it Curses and Poisons you. He hits pretty hard too.

Opo-opo? No, this is a funguar mob.

Cuffs are not a 100% drop. Took me 4 kills to get it.
What level is this NM?
