Took me about 9 or 10 tries to get this ring, which is useful for parry up.
Foul meat

I'm Pld 50 <Galka> I want the rings for avatar fights, so i go hunting. 0:00 came around and no mob. 1:00 ~ 2:00; still no mob >< I checkout the other 2 <pos in the area, and find the NM under water. >< After killing it, I go back to the prevous <pos and behold there he is. Kill him and.. wtf no drop?
As its not 4:00 yet i run to the 3rd <pos in the area, as im rounding a corner.. this thing is coming right at me 0o! Foul Meat. Im at 1/2 hp cuz i wasnt expecting the Nm pop. Killed it w/ Hp: 20/1150 < my finger is on my 2hr > It drops the Clay amulet. nice. earth +11 will be a nice buff against Titan. ( 12 ~ 24 hr spawn )
A question: why the hell did SE not give these NM 100% drop rate. these rings being rare are only 1 ~ 2k on Sylph yet 1/20 drop rate!? wtf wake up SE.
Faul Meet?!?!?

It's a mispelling. The correct name is Foul Meat.

Info on the 3 NM ghosts in gusgen mines

This also drops Revival Root according to someone below.

All three of the Notorious Monster ghosts in Gusgen mines pop a few seconds after 2:00, and disappear at 6:00 if one is not claimed by anybody. The sirens go off sometime between 0:00 and 2:00. They are definitely not worth it if you are looking for gil. A bonus is the guaranteed(or really good) drop rate of the cotton cloths.

I recently have been killing these things, but not for the gil. I killed them as PLD48/BLM19(for warp, blaze spikes is nice as well), and had enough time to rest and kill 2 different ghosts a night, most of the time. I get 12-18 exp a kill at lv 48.All the rings sell for 1-2k on siren, 1.2k to NPC's. So here's what I have. Please note I did not have my signet on for all the kills

Wounded Wurfel~
Malflash Ring- 0/12
Cotton Cloth- 12/12
Revival Root- 2/12
Ice Crystal- 1/12
Luminicloth- 1/12

Burned Bergmann~
Malflame Ring- 1/4
Cotton Cloth- 4/4
Revival Root- 1/4

Asphyxiated Amsel~
Malgust Ring- 1/2
Cotton Cloth- 2/2

So I was mining in Gusgen, and wandered over and saw this nm. I came here to look it up, and thought I could kill it as PLD 47/WAR23. When I came back, it was gone already, so I went back to mining a while. When 2:00 came, I headed back down here. It was a long fight, but I owned it with full HP left and 16 mp. It did a few funny things i've never seen a mob do before, like growing in the middle of a fight or giggling at you(not laughing, it giggled!) After it was dead, it gave me 1 Cotton Cloth and 1 Malgust Ring.

I quickly headed over to Wounded Wurfel, but got too close and it aggroed me. I hadn't rested yet, so I cured it once, called for help, and headed to the zone. I used my 2hr on a staircase to take away some damage, but that doesn't help with magic and drown. No-one was around till I reached the level of the zone. By the time I had reached the npc by the zone, wurfel disappeared from my radar. It must have either disappeared or was killed by one of the high levels going through. It wasn't but 2 seconds after that I dropped to the ground from Drown >< My HP was in Dunes. These things aren't worth camping if your looking to get rich, but if you are around and feel you can kill them, go for it.

I just solo'd this thing for a friend that wanted the Malgust Ring.


I hit Stoneskin, Haste, Prot III, Shell III and Shock Spikes.

Once I saw this one in the water, I pulled it with Flash and started pounding it with my trusty Hammer. The worst point in this fight was when Stoneskin fell and it actually got me from 895HP to about 840HP. ^.~

Anyway, this thing did have quite a bit of HP so it took a while to smash it and I hit it with a few Cure IV's for about 250 a shot. True Strike worked really well against it also...

First time I killed it and it dropped the following:

Cotton Cloth
Malgust Ring
Revival Tree Root

Not bad for the first time and no THF with TH.

Good Luck all!

One day, i was mining and I came across this damn ghost near the left pool of water on the first floor. I started running and s/he binded me, so im like "Oh Crap." I finally get unbinded w/ about 400 hp left. and s/he is still chasing me. At this time im screaming into my ls to help me and my lvl 51whm friend comes to the rescue. I had zoned w/ about 127 hp left. Then we go back in after i was all healed up and we engage the tortured soul. ^_^ We end up having to use both 2 hrs. (i held hate after bene, which was weird for a war) Beat her or him up, but no drop. O WELL!

As many know these little ghosts pop up at midnight with the sirens but something people may not think about is that they sell to NPCs for about 2.5K if I remember correctly. So if your wandering around for some reason and see this ghost around might be nice to wack it.

Ok I just fought this thing tonight me level 42 Drk/21 Rdm a 36 Rdm and a 38 Whm killed it. I had to tank >< and this thing got me to 20 hp. I used Spinning Scythe and finished off a second before its attack that would have leveled me. (The Whm and Rdm sucked at healing and we had just killed 4 pugils and this thing agro'd) We got the drop and the leader (the Whm) wouldnt give it to me either would the Rdm they said they deserve it more for healing me when they were taking 80+ damage and would have died in a like 30 seconds. Now they took the drop and left me with crap. >< Dont fight this with a party if you can solo it people take **** they are all ***'s on the inside.
