Went on DRG/THF on many attempts and am 0/19 on this. Can't imagine why SE hates me so much. Guess I'll keep trying til I get it though. Not a whole lot a drg can use in the ammo slot anyhow.
Can't get it -_-

1/4 Drop!
# Aug 15 2006 at 10:06 PM Rating: Decent
I hunted this NM today for only two hours and went 1/4 with my BLM62/WHM31. First fight I found the NM to be pretty tough, he messed me up a little, but I killed him with no drop. By the third fight, I had an "Impossible To Guage" strategy;

1) Bind
2) Blind
3) Elemental Seal > Paralyze
4) Slow
5) FireIII
6) AeroIII
7) WaterIII
8) Bind
9) FireIII
10) BlizzardII
11) Attacked with an Earth Staff for the Damage Taken -20% and killed him in a couple blows. Got drop fourth kill! Yay! =P

RSE done!

I got this guy after getting my last piece of RSE. I checked all the spawn points and it was at the last one (I-11) where I found him. Got the drop too, first time fighting him and it was easy as RDM60/BLM30. He didn't even drop my stoneskin. He hits fast, but I took care of that with a slow. Did the regular buffs, Stoneskin, Phalanx, Enthunder, Refresh and Haste. I didn't use a weapon skill, because it's rumored somewhere to affect drops (I don't know if that's true or not, but I don't take chances with NM's). I was also the first one to claim him, as I got to the cave as soon as my RSE window opened, (Male Hume). I don't know if that has anything to do with it either, but a ls bud of mine came in and he got the next claim and got no drop as SAM/THF with Treasure hunter. Since this thing gives me +1 Int, I may sell my morion tathlum, but I haven't decided yet since it looks a lot cooler than than a seed bag ><. Anyways, good luck on this NM, and you won't have to worry about any competition for me if you're on Kujata.
Leech death.

Soloed easily by PLD 51/War25. Took about 300 damage out of about 700. Oddly enough, I got my Balm Sachet on the first attempt.

I went during my RSE week and went 1/3 on it without TH2. Everytime it popped at F-4 (5 straight times) i got it 3 times because i was killing Stroper Chymes in between spawns. Anyways as 74WHM/BLM easy kill. And i proudly sport my Sachet on many different jobs.
definately below lvl 50

I accidentally popped it near the pld flag quest room while looking for the chest during my rse.

Thought I was gonna be dead starting the fight with only 82mp, but it wasn't too bad...other than getting no drop.

20 exp as a 52pld.
clear drop
# Nov 12 2005 at 2:12 PM Rating: Excellent
I just got a Clear Drop from it. -.-


But yes, it does have 3 pops. Every 30 minutes after you kill it the "???" reappears.

These maps from KI show the spawn points.



Just like to add, I'm probably about 0/20 (or more >.>) on this and the Aroma Fly, sometimes with TH and sometimes not. I've spent days being the only person hunting/killing it every half hour and NOTHING. I'm ready to give up on it. ._.

I want it too ; ;
The drop rate from the leech is awful, even with TH2 I'm 0/4 on it, and it's heavily camped on Carbuncle. There's a thread about these on KI somewhere, I'll try to have a look for it.

Edit: I found it, it has some useful info and some maps, so it's pretty handy. The location of point 3 in Ordelle's is wrong though, it should be halfway down the next bend, the middle right of F-4.
Click me!

Its like the other 2 RSE NMS; spawns from a random ??? in the area. If Ordelle Caves is your RSE day, then the NM can pop and drop your races Sachet.
