75MNK/NIN got EES shot off on me while casting Ichi for 1674 (Damn you counterstance!).

Came back & got drop.

After the long level 80 cap patch servers came up. So I figured he would be up around 230pm pst. I spawned my NPC after killing about 10 or so PH. Kill a lot more and no spawn 40 min goes by since the time the window should have spawned. So I figure someone either beat me or the spawn is messed up. Figured id just finish off my NPC. When I notice he spawns up top of the ramp with 2 friends. I wait for them to path away from some of the repops up top and try to single pull the 2 followers. They linked to each other but he didnt as 75 THF/NIN. I killed the 2 of them easy and go to pull him. I notice others in the area on chocobo but they didnt see it up top so I pull it far away. Get 1 link not so bad. So I kill the link and they still dont notice I have the NM unclaimed and then my NPC hits the max kill per day and bails. Now its just me and the NM 1 on 1. This was my first time fighting it and people said how strong he is. I thought he was pretty tough for his level and has a large amount of HP my evisceration was only taking 6% off and with capped evasion he still got my shadows down fairly quickly. Bloody bolts were only healing for 19 I used several healing potions I had gotten from chests killing the PHs but in the end I beat him and got the earring to drop. Shadows blocked his 500-600 bow move which he did at 28%. All in all a pretty fun fight I would definately recomend bringing a friend if you can because the fight was long and a few times I did get a little worried.
1/1. Barely.

Finished farming, figured I'd use a charge of my Altep ring and see if this guy was actually up (Checked maybe 20 times in the past, but never seriously waited around for him).

There he was, with two helpers following. Unfortunately, I was MNK/THF at the time, but come on... He drops a level 40 earring, shouldn't be that tough. I was very wrong.
He had surprisingly high defense, and the various spells the others were casting were wearing me down. He eventually used Eagle Eye Shot, and... I'm not sure of how much it hit me for (Filters), but I went into the red.

My only chance was my NPC, so I equipped the signal pearl and tried to put some distance between me and the enemies. I got down to 10 HP... Thankfully, they missed, and I summoned my "fellow."

... Of course, healer or not, what is she gonna do when I'm at 10 HP? She provokes one of the enemies. -.-;;
Somehow, they kept missing, and she started curing me. Turned around to finish him off, and it dropped the earring. Thank gawd.

With Utsusemi, this guy would probably be a joke.
Hell, if I had just taken the links first, I wouldn't have been in much trouble... But I was worried someone would come and claim him while I killed them. For good reason, as someone came by on Chocobo during the fight. >.>

Found him walking around unclaimed and soloed him as lvl 75 THF/BST. EES hit for 500, otherwise is was a very easy fight.

Knowing full well this NM doesn't spawn after maintenance, I sat myself at his spawn area around the 20 hour mark... Roughly an hour before his spawn. It's just hit the 22 hour mark and nothing. Hasn't spawned, been no sign of him, or anything. Is this normal? Does anyone else have a familiar experience and can fill in the blanks and perhaps tell me why this happened? I don't plan to leave my character away here overnight, this earring isn't worth that much.

The only conclusion I could come to is that after maintenance it's respawn time isn't 21 hours, it's something smaller (or larger), like Cerberus and Khimaira's maintenance respawn behaviour.
No spawn?

I have noticed from camping this guy extensively that after maintenance he pops early, around the 20.5 hour mark. After every subsequent pop of Centurio XII-I add around 12-15 minutes to his pop time.

Found this guy while I was running around bored, quickly OPed to Sandy and changed to 66 THF/NIN, with bloody and blind bolts I couldn't do a damn thing, shadows suck against RNG type mobs, and bloody only drained for about 15 each hit and wouldn't drain all the time.
I got him to about 60% health before he EESed me for about 650 damage which brought me into red and from there he dropped me 30 seconds later.
came back as 65 RDM/WHM, got him to about 15% before he silenced me and from there I fell with him being at about 10%, really pissed now, the same WHM that teled me to the desert gave me another tele for free and I asked for his help. I stayed RDM, kinda wish I would have came as THF but oh well, finally killed him and no drop, so pissed, lost over 4000 exp and all this ******* gives me is 10 exp and 39 gil, cheap ****. Couldn't get on today cause of work so I lost ToD as well. I hate this NM.
Easy NM...

First, sorry for my bad english. =\

I was killing some mobs with my PUP 44...I was bored and I went to see if this NM was up. I found Centurio XII-I around (H-10), and I was alone. Quickly I use a Warp Cudgel and change job (SAM66/WAR30 lol), I return back then and the NM was still there. I pulled him in a safe place and begun to attack...

I had -24 Evasion (Haubergeon/Fang Earring) and he still missed me alot with Physycal Attacks, but Ranged Attacks never missed. I also anticipated EES with Third Eye :/. Tachi: Yukikaze/Gekko did from 400 to 700 on him.
Ended the fight with ~500 hp, 39 exp and 75 gil...no drop.
Wasn't a hard fight, I didn't even used Meikyo Shisui.

My brother and I were duoing out in Altepa and I caught this guy on wide scan. When we got there, he was unclaimed, and uncamped. So I charmed a Sabotender and sent it in, expecting 1000 needles to take care of it. Needless to say, 1000 needles hardly dented it, and we ended up having to zone :P

I'll try again when Im lvl 60 or so.

So i'm on my way to Rabao to finish up my nin AF3 quest, decide to check in on this guy as my 75 Whm/Thf. I get there, and he pops right infront of me!, I get claim fast, as the campers rush over, and begin to take his hp down. Was a fairly easy fight, though it would have been easier if i were /Nin, he's got rather good Def and decent HP on him aswell as a decent attack but HORRIBLE Accuracy, with Genbu's Shield + Cheviot cape, he was hitting for about 20-40 norm attack, 50-60 with ranged. He didnt EES, but I wasnt worried about it anyways.

1/1 now, this earring should do quite nicely end game for my Nin. GL, Happy hunting.

BTW he poped at the edge of the ramp going down.

Men I can't get nm too pop by me. Btw it pops at the H-10 it pop there everytime for me> Where the L shape is. It can pop anywhere by the L and yea it's exactly 21 hours later , but I have some very rude campers. I won't talk about it will get everyone mad. Well anyway GL on getting nm and drops I hope you get it. Btw you should try to get your lucky charms for luck they are 3 : 4 Leafmandy drop from mandy and stolen from Tom Tit tat in Sarutabaruta West, Wild Rabbit tail, drop from MIghty rabab in Buburimu Peninsulam and last one is the hardest Lucky Egg in Boyahda Tree drop from knight Crawlers. Anyway they all say lucky on there description and I notice my drops rate are much better. Hope this help

I was camping Dune Widow as 75WAR/RNG when I saw this guy pop on widescan. I knew I was badly set-up with a /RNG sub but had a re-raise gorget so figured what the hell. I had some tp from killing DW's PH's so pulled it away from the other ants, 2hrd & rampaged. Did a fair sum of dmg but then he hit me with EES which took me down to around 400hp. Even with my 2hr crit hits my hp was dropping faster than his so I equipped a tactics pearl as my npc is whm. The count seemed to take forever and I was just watching my hp disappear! Finally popped the npc with 78hp remaining! I saw him winding up for a rng atk but the npc pulled off a Cure IV before it hit! Went on to win....no drop.

I found that his melee hits anything from 35-70 and his rng around 80+...fortunately he seemed to miss his rng as much as he hit. Doubt I'd try with rng as sub again!

I was bored and thought i'd walk by Dune widow, not up. So I went to see this guy... he was up. After researching and camping for a week he was randomly up. I claimed it and my Wife and my other char came to kill (my other char needed earring).

It hits utsemi shadows 100% with Ranged Attack.

1/1 Intruder earring for my THF ^^b

NIN WAR WHM killed it, NO TH!!

Hold claim for a thief.

If you claim don't kill it, tank it until you can find a thf. People will ***** at you, but when it drop you will be the one laughing. Not only did you get the drop because you had the patience to hold claim for 10 minutes... but now there is one less person camping and after the ToD.

Apply this to all NMs that you can hold and arn't 100% drop.

0/8 on this thing. But that doesn't mean I've camped it for just four days. 0/4 = about a month of camping this sucker. Give yourself a couple of days to get a ToD, after that your facing stiff compitition for a claim. What makes it more difficult is it pops somewhere different everyday is a decent sized area. And as you can see the drop rate so far isn't pretty so don't plan on getting lucky. This is a great earring, if you want it - plan on working for it.

I was camping Dune widow 64 thf/rng after killing her i went afk for about 45 min came back to start agian and hit wide scan and there he was didnt know his lvl but no i wanted his drop so i went any ways. I had 200 tp from killing spiders so was going to sata dancing edge but he agroed me when i camp close to him. he was hitting me pretty hard bloody bolt didnt keep up witht the damge he was doing to meso i just backed away from him and he stood there shooting at me so shot back with bloody bolt and regained full health. When i got tp i would walk up dancing edge and back away again and thats how the fight went. i got the drop i guess as a consualation prize for going o/8 on dune widow. finally 1/1 on an nm.

Soloed this at PLD68/WAR34.

0/1 right now but with ToD I will be coming back until it drops ^-^

Fight was long, probably an honest 15 mins. I came overly prepared and used a Yag Drink, one Hi-Ether and Carbonara (I craft it so no real big deal there, and I had a few on me at the time). I'm sure I could have won without any of this but I was playing it safe, testing the waters, and I never came close to death or running low on MP. EES hit me for about 550.

My only advice is to be careful of linking him with other Antican or fighting him near the Lost Souls, since they will aggro Low HP.

** Edit: Got the Earring, 1/3. The second and third time I used no meds or food except for one Yag Drink each time, and although it was a long fight it was fun and safe. **
