2 Ancient Coins each, just like the Dhamels on the floor.

They are kinda tough, but if you have the time left to fight em, do so.

If not, just get the chest behind em and you win the zone.

And FYI- Shadowrunner is the man. Don't hold the fact that he's british against him though. I still like him despite his geographical handicap ^^

Just a FYI for the site:

This mob is fought in Limbus, along with another NM Manticore.

Due to the fact that it is Limbus, crystals of any type are NOT dropped. Instead, Ancient Beastcoins are your spoils for defeating these foes.

In short, This Manticore does not drop a wind crystal, for anyone trying to hunt it >.>

Just some info for you, the crystal is linked to the manticore, so it pops up automatically. We know they do not drop it, but I have no way of taking the crystal off manually at this time. I just assume that people can deduce on their own that it doesn't drop a crystal.

While i admit i wasn't so positive about how the system works as far as Generating a crystal directly linked to a mob (Isn't there a type of worm mob that violates this outside of Bastok), I merely stated it to also aid those that are unaware.

Deducion is quite a risky thing, as some people dont think crystals drop at all in (sea) {Al'Tieu or whatever}, however mobs have a random chance of dropping a cluster. Likewise, people dont necessarily know that Limbus events imply that there will be no crystals. So people viewing this information might do something as radical as... say... getting to the zoneline and realizing they dont have Signet, upon which returning to their home city and making the group wait.

I have seen people do such matters with respect to Dynamis. So I'll go out on a limb and say:

I wasn't trying to be derogitory, I was merely trying to show information to those that desired to seek it.

I labeled where the Mob can be found.
I gave a list of the items it has dropped for our group so far.
I explained that the given information was currently off.

Without knowledge, I didn't know a new mob automatically generated a crystal tied to it. Now I know.

I'm sure whoever hunts this thing will be after something more important than a Wind Crystal ^-^'
