Is it just me or do these Goobbues remind you of the Nu in Chrono Trigger?

QuickEdit; The Nu's the ones on the bottom:

Best place for cuttings

The best place for cuttings is in Sanctuary, steady 9 gobbues pop in relatively restricted area (well, depending on how you look at it; in fact it's 3 areas but all by the entrance to the Tree). Level 60+ advised, and with thf60+/nin (or if competition from the gilsellers, thf/war for the voke), easy to take down, but drops averaged about 1 in 4 kills. Average just a bit more than 2 stacks of moss for 1 stack of cuttings. In my career, I probably took 60-70 stacks of cuttings out of there. And I grew every one of them, never sold a single one.

Unlike the goobbues in R'berry and Pashow, those in the Sanctuary do not drop treant bulbs or dahlias.

Just killed my first goobbue last night as a 31 RDM/10 THF. I was expecting it to be harder, especially since I know EP is just getting more and more difficult now.

I used Enthunder on my Centurion's Sword and the Bio'd him. Tossed out a Paralyze and a Slow, both stuck, and then used Burning Blade. Dead goobbue and one moss. :D

Then about an hour later I was skilling up with a friend in Rolanberry and got {Flat Blade}, plus tree cuttings. Good night, all in all.

ALL drops - and I mean ALL - are day related.

In this mob's case: Earthsday

(TH1 and TH2 help, but still no garantee for a drop)

That means: better drop rate on earthsday. bad on windsday.

btw: crawlers (also based on earth) dropped worst on lightningsday and lightsday. Maybe it's the same for all earth-based mobs. Have to try that out.

And whoever thinks of telling me that my post is bull***t, ***** you.

I've been farming earth-based mobs (crawlers for silk) for months and I always got the same drop rates mentioned on top.

One other thing: this rule doesn't count for elementals. Those will at least one cluster.

p.s.: I got the best drop rates on the first 4 game days. ==> learn the order of the days and have fun makin' money. =)

It also help if you are NOT 37 lvls above the mob. Dont waste your time.. be as close to mob as possible to farm and stil get drop. EG...
I am 37War and farm Farmer Goobbue in Rolanberry. Around 60% drop rate. I can take 5-6 before healing so I can make 100k and hour if the durn things popped constantly.. (You know this is not the case) But, plan your fight with highest Goobbue poss if you want Cuttings.

Completely wrong.

A Lv10 WAR killing crawlers in saruta will get silk at the same rate as a Lv75 WAR killing the same crawlers in the same zone at the same time.

I was of the opinion that the higher you are, the better your chances of the mob dropping the rare item.

I wouldn't normally believe this except I see it a fair bit running aruond West Ronafaure Jumping orcs for gags and they tend to drop the Orcish Axe used in a mission 1-1 for sandy. When i first started out it took alot more Orc deaths in order to score this axe.
RE: farming
# Oct 10 2005 at 12:51 AM Rating: Decent
Could be wrong, however the most likely reason that it took longer to get An Orcish axe at a lower lvl was because it took you quite a bit longer to kill them at lower lvls. This is not to say that you were not comparing the percentage of drops per low and high lvl's.

In other words... at lvl 40 you can chain 20 mobs and most likely get a drop this would take a few mins at most. Conversley if you killed 20 mobs with a lvl 8 you would get the drop but it would take you 20 mins to kill that many mobs.

As you can see, the mob level is 22-25. This means that to anyone level 22-25, this will con as Even Match. Still, at level 30ish, some will con as Easy Prey, so the mob level is right. The information given is the level of the mob, not the level you can first start to take them.

If your weapon skill isn't high or capped for that level you will get Easy Prey but has high defense. I was getting that a lot with my WHM Club skill.

I haven't fought anything in the Passhow Marshlands yet. My WHM is level 30, but I need new armor. After I do that I can probably go there and start making some gil from these Goobbues.

I soloed one of these as a 25MNK/10THF, and with focus/dodge I had no problem whatsoever. Ended up with about 1/2-2/3's HP at the end of the battle, I didn't get a drop, but I'll be going back once I finish getting THF to 15 and MNK to 30.

These things look cool.

They have nice drops too, although I rarely get cuttings, but yeah I shouldn't be farming as a Bard anyway lol.

i quit hunting goobbues =/ pain in the ***** i even used my rng as sub just so i can see ALL the goobbue. i didnt even get to make a stack of the Boyahda Moss. and i got 1 tree cutting in maybe 4 hours. i'd prefer hunting Forest Tigers than goobbues.

When i first started to farm these i got a Cutting on my 7 kill, i then proceded to go 0/33 throughout all my other farming attempts on these.
So after killing 40 goobbues i only have 1 Tree Cutting to show for it.
Keep in mind this is with a thf sub of 15. Perhaps Goobbues just hate me.

I'm a 35 RDM still in Lizard Armor...

Is that the reason I have a hell of a time fighting these guys? They get me down to near death when I fight from full hp/mp.

I use a Fire Sword, if that helps...

I'd hazard a guess and say that if you got lvl 30 armor/RSE and a centurion's sword. and made sure all your spells are up to date you wouldn't have as large a problem killing them.
