Hercules Beetle Picture

General News

  • This NM is spawned by trading Honey to the three ???s at G-7 or I-10. Trades must be made at night from 22:00 to 4:00.
    • After 4:00, examining one of the ???s that had honey traded to it may result in the NM appearing.
  • The ??? must be checked before 7:00, when they despawn.
  • Highly resistant to physical damage.
  • NM has roughly 2,200 HP.

if you're bored one day, this can be fun to "camp" for a nice reward.

You can farm lightning clusters, beetle jaws and tiger fangs while you wait, so it's a good profit regardless of whether or not the NM appears.

Very simple: Trade honey to each of the ??? that appear once the clock hits 22:00. They are all around the little rock formation right outside the tunnel.

wait untill 4:00. farm while you wait.

at 4:00, check each ???. You will either see "You did not catch anything." or you will get the NM. ^^

How to pop...

As a Lv. 66 Warrior/Ninja, this NM was on my 'Hunting List' for some reason. Tried to pop the beetle for the Black Hose and prolly sell it. The first time I tried to pop, I only traded one Honey to the ??? Tree on G-7 with know knowlenge of the other two Tress nearby and didn't spawn. The second time, I traded honey one each to the three Trees. Again, no pop. I belive that you do need to trade Honey to all of the trees to increase your chance of luring the NM, but all the trees will have the same result. From what I can tell, the probability of popping this NM is a 50% chance.

I soloed this guy easy with a 48DRG/24RDM in the begining when i was casting slow and stuff on him the hate was bouncing back and forth between me and my wyvern but after that was over i held hate and he didn't do much dmg at all to me i hat to cure one time and I'm 2/3 on spawning him and 1/2 on drops.
stupid question

stupid question but since only the person who puts the honey down can claim the pop.. does that mean only the person who put the honey down can kill it or can he have pt members kill it to? or would i be able to solo it at Drk40/war20

Well it looks like they used my picture with my friend Mckane :D

Yeah, you can claim the pop if you have honey placed at all 3 points around that area. The possiblility of getting him to pop is random though and when you do find a tree that doesn't give you "You didn't catch anything." message he will pop and start attacking you.

At your level that you have there you won't be able to solo him. I was a Rdm61/blm30 when I went after him. He does a good amount of damage. So be sure to bring a tank whos 60+, and you shouldn't have any problems.
