Leech Picture

Pathos Unlocked

  • Can remove Ranged and Rings/Earrings.

    • This can remove the Pathos of anyone that entered the zone in the party or alliance, even if they have disbanded from the party or are disconnected from the game when the monster is killed.

    • For example, if Player 1 of the party gets disconnected when the monster is defeated, there's a chance of his/her Pathos being unlocked when they log back into the game.

Why most people don't find Ruby here
# Oct 02 2005 at 12:38 AM Rating: Decent
In order for the ruby to drop in the first place atleast one person in the party has to be lvl 30. So people who farm/mine in here as a lower lvl job would obviously never see one drop. This is why the ruby COULD drop off these leeches and not too many people would find it here. Also only three leeches spawn at a time and with almost a 7-10 min respawn there are much more effiecent areas to try for this drop.

From the many forums that I read through when SMN came out with Zilrat everything said it drops off Leech family. And this still holds true with all the forums today. There has never been an offical update from SE (atleast to my knowledge) to change where you can obtain the ruby.

But like I said before there are many other areas like Dunes, Qufim, etc where the leeches are still relativly lower lvls and much more abbundent.

I found the ruby on this creature but at the time I thought it was useless and I tossed it.

No they don't drop off these. There are no honest confirmed reports of anyone ever getting it off this mob. Lower levels mobs just don't drop the higher level items. Just like how you don't get beehive chips off Huge Hornets, you don't get Carbuncle's Ruby off these low level Leeches.

Incorrect, they do drop off Carbuncle's Ruby, first off it says it right under DROPS in this page, and second, i got one dropped, and i threw it away (thought it was useless
Too low of level ...

I think they dont drop from these ones because they ARE such low level. The possibility is there, but I bet it is set at .01% chance of dropping off such a low level monster.

From the sounds of it I'm not going to get a ruby or it's going to be impossible to find one. Has anyone seriously found a ruby? I want to become a summoner and I was hoping to be able to get the item here quite easily. Any help would be appreciated thanks

I kill them by the thousands with TH on (a good way to pass time while waiting for mining points to spawn) and the best I ever got out of those little things are Vials of fiends blood. No Carbuncle Ruby (damn a lvl 5 could get a flag quest item????) No beastmen blood either. I would've never came to check out the info if I didn't have someone ask me where he could find the leeches in Zeruhn mines. When he told me he was looking for Carbuncle ruby, I fell off my chair laughing.

Funny how you got 6 when it's Ex :|

I didn't read through everything, but I just wanted to correct you that the ruby is Rare/Ex, and you can have multiple duplicates on Ex items. I have had many Aspir Knives and Parana Shields when getting the Giddeus Chest Key to go the cheap way of getting to Kazham. As I said, I haven't read further down, but he may've meant that he got however many..but not all at once..or he got it, dropped it, then got another.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 15 2004 at 8:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ....a 75sum/pal...? why dont i believe you? maybe cause someone on lvl75 wouldnt pick such a nasty sub plus sum galka bites neways least you are sum/drg or sum/bst... w/e

Carbuncle Ruby

Has anybody gotten a carbuncle ruby drop off one of these?
RE: Carbuncle Ruby
# Dec 10 2004 at 9:33 AM Rating: Decent
Ive asked a 55 thf mining here if he has ever found 1 and he answered no, and he makes all his gil mining, and kills any monster he sees in zehrun, so im guessing its more like .001% drop.
