I sould've guessed, but had forgotten... so for a supid map (ranguemont pass) I have to go kill a level 45 beastman leader which is surrounded by other of it's kind... meh, ***** this. I'm going to wait until someone needs rank.5 items or if a High-level is bored (or until I am lvl50). The character that needs it is my taru and she is only lvl 40rdm, so meh.

This is one thing I prefer WOW over FF anyday, but no game is a good game without grievances.

Solo'd as a 48SAM/24WAR.
Ate a rice dumpling.
Pulled him away from surrounding mobs for a 1on1.
His first two hits were criticals for 100+ damage a piece.
He landed a couple more crits for 100+ damage
He took me down to 150H so I two houred and took him out.
killed at 50 pld

killed him at 50 with galka pld in my def vit gear. make sure to use sentinel and defender and be smart about where, when, and how you fight this thing. i used first person view and ran circles around him to make sure there was no links. got heated at points but never felt worried i couldnt take him down. good luck, god speed.
What a joke!

Lvl 50 SMN can take him solo if you treat it like a lvl 20 avatar fight.

Just Solo'ed him as a 45 MNK/NIN. Oh, and luck ole me took down Zo'Khu Blackcloud on the way, Shield dropped (240k on Fenrir). That'll help pay for the Brown Belt.
What a jokester.

This guy is a joke to defeat. Soloed him as a level 58 RDM/BLM. I kept buffs up most of the battle. He hit me...maybe twice for damage (while Stoneskin was down) and they weren't hard hits. I waited until he was away from the other mobs, so I didn't get any links. He dropped four Quadav Charms.

Can I?

Hrm... I am thinking of trying to solo this guy with my lvl 50 Pld. Do you think i could do it? If not do you think my signal pearl would assist me at all?

Is there any reason to kill this NM other than the two quest/missions listed?
This was changed in the last update

I am a 65BLM/WHM and he DID CON as Impossible to Gauge when I walked up to him looking for a charm for "The Rescue." He IS a NM - just an easy one. Stoneskin + Blink + Aquaveil and I killed him in about 1min. Hit for about 30-40 HP the few times stoneskin went down.
disregard last post

i stayed long enough to know it pops every 10-15 mins if you wait long enough
pop time
# Oct 28 2005 at 10:33 PM Rating: Decent
i've read every post in this list and so far i haven't seen anyone say how often it pops for when more than 1 ppl needs it in the same party. Any ideas on pop times?

A few days ago I took an LS buddy with me to Beadeaux for him to get his items for the Magicite quest (he was strong enough to have soloed these two, but he had no map of the area and basically had no idea where he was going). Neither Headhunter nor Gascon gave either of us any challenge (both of us were lv. 51 DRG/WAR), and how we killed Gascon was really amazing in my opinion. Three words....Simultaneous Penta Thrusts!

RE: spawn location???
# Jan 18 2006 at 8:26 AM Rating: Decent
most NM's spawn over a reasonably wide area, so look around.
Solo it?
# Jul 16 2005 at 11:47 AM Rating: Decent
Anyone know if a lvl 51BLM/25WHM can solo this dude? i need the charm for a quest.
# Jun 15 2005 at 9:45 AM Rating: Decent
Soloed this guy as a Level 51 DRG/WAR he didnt even take away 1/4 of my HP^^ No adds no nothn this guy is cake!
# May 09 2005 at 8:08 AM Rating: Decent
I went out to Beadux to see if i can solo this guy.. Everything went well and i did solo him being 51BLM/25WHM. I used freeze to pull him then Sleeped him med a bit. Thunder2 couple of times then
i figured what the heck. I sleeped him once more used 2hr and Freeze again. Dead.. so was easy fight but i had to be patient with trying not to get adds.

You would never, as lvl 42, be able to take it down.
I took it down with a RDM 27/WAR 8 and a DRK 43/THF 21 So, theoretically, you could definitely do it... I if you didn't get link

Took him down with a 40WAR (me), 44WHM, and 40WHM. (This was the second time, first time we killed him with a full party of 40s.) Wouldn't even have used my 2HR but kept getting adds, so we wanted to take him out quick before camp turned into a zoo. :) Got our maps to Ranguemont Pass.

Solo'd it with ease lvl 53 war/nin.

Then my friend wanted to try and solo it and he did at lvl 48 sam/war. Not the hardest easy prey I've encountered. Castle Oztroja has harder easy preys.
