Doppelganger Dio Picture

Doppelganger Dio is a lottery spawn from the place holder Balloon in the Outter Horutotto Ruins. The Balloon spawns every eight minutes with the chance instead spawning Doppelganger Dio, Doppelganger Gog, or Bomb King. He will always spawn behind the left door in one of three positions: (J-6); (I-7); or (G-7).

Damaged by Cure

Was able to damage Dio with Cure spells like undead. Banish was more effective against him too. Solo'd him as 30 whm / 15 blm. 0/1 on Dio, 1/2 on Bomb King so far.
Little Bugger
# Nov 06 2008 at 7:54 PM Rating: Decent
Well... I went in as a 30 THF/WAR and had to suffer through four bomb pops before Dio popped. The little bugger got me down to 300 hp and then used dimensional death for 142 damage. Soon as I hit red hp, I two houred (perfect dodge) and used Berserk. I went crazy on the little bugger and won with a 162/507 hp.

What did I get?

60 xp and a revival tree root. {/cry}

I'll try it again another day with a higher job. >.<

EDIT: Ok, I went as a 48 RDM (other character >.o) and camped this little bugger for awhile. >.< Here's my camp log:

7:16 - 7:24 Balloon
7:27 - 7:35 Balloon
7:37 - 7:45 Balloon
Doppleganger Dio
9:20 - 9:28 Balloon
9:30 - 9:38 Balloon
9:38 - 9:46 Balloon
9:47 - 9:55 Doppleganger Gog
9:59 - 10:07 Balloon
10:10 - 10:17 Balloon
10:19 - 10-27 Balloon
10:28 - 10:36 Doppleganger Dio

Hope that helps anyone. I didn't get the scythe. >.> Ended up just buying it. Bleh. Hopefully I have better luck with the Frostreaper.

[b][/b] ive been here since 1pm est... its now 132pm est and ive gotten dio 3 times, gog 1 time and 1 ballon. isnt so hard.. ive found they spawn every 12 mins.. so soon as i kill one i go to current time in the menu press it to display ToD and do some stuff around the house and come back 12 mins later and a new one spawns every time! =)
Where is this guy?
# Jun 04 2006 at 1:34 PM Rating: Decent
I really want this sythe.

Can someone tell me how to get to this room, or at leat which tower I need to enter?
Fun lol maybe not for everyone
# Jun 03 2006 at 2:16 AM Rating: Decent
im sry if everyone doesnt agree with me on this but i think these NM's are fun i have camped them many times and gotten 3 bomb rings two cruel scythes as well as mnay other common drops from them and balloons

The way i see it is either way u win esppecially since this is near windurst and both bomb arms (balloons and bomb King) and revival root (doppelgangers) are used in windurst quest so therefore they sell for some money revival root the last time i checked was selling for 3k a peice granted its not great but hey its money and it was pretty easy to get

So all in all a day when your bored come down and hang out here for a while and even if u dont get a rare drop youll probably end up walking away with a good 30k or 40k in other stuff not to mention getting some nice windurst fame if you havent done the quests
long time

long time ago when i was still a noob i was killing stuff for fun i opened one of the doors there he is i wated to fight him so i casted stone on him i got killed in 3 hits < i was lv 10 blm XD
2hour hunt for nothing.
# May 03 2006 at 8:12 PM Rating: Decent
ok i saw that this area had 3 NMs all dropping good things so i said "hell i have nothing better to do lets camp this stuff"

i get there and run between rooms and killing Balloons when i saw them. finaly my friend comes to help me by spliting up the searching grounds. rules where if the scythe dropped it was mine if the ring or spear dropped,his. ok so he logs out after an hour of killing ballons so i go running around for more Ballons. in the upper right spawn area there he is. i claimed him and killed him easy.. i got a reviaval tree root.. just that. 2 hours isnt worth that.

On your map of Sarutabaruta East, it is the ruins farthest to the north (southwest corner of H-3). It can't be seen from the road, you actually have to go back a little ways to get to it.

I was really bored, so I figured I'd try to add an NM or two to my list.
Ran around the rooms, found a Baloon, and killed it. Waited a few minutes... Ran around again, and found Dio in one of the rooms. Went in, and... Was a little surprised when he attacked me [30 THF].
He hit me once [For 56... Ow], at which point I cast Utsusemi. He missed constantly, and a shadow absorbed his Dimensional Death attack.
[Very] Rough count, he had somewhere between 700 and 800 HPs.

Aneirin gains 37 experience points.
Aneirin obtains a revival tree root.
Aneirin obtains a cruel scythe.

Thanks Dio.

i have been camping this for about 17 hours now, i have had him spawn 4 times and so far i am Dio 0/4 Gog 1/5 and Bomb King 1/5.
This is has been a very long spawn for me, i have only been able to find one bomb up at a time and have ended up having to kill maybe 8 or 9 to get a NM to sapwn, should u come and do this, bring a book as a precautionary. BTW i am a 31war/14mnk and it is simple to kill. Dimensional death is not anything to worry about much if you got alot of hp, does about 90 to me, and Self destruct is also not too bad but becareful still.

I owned this guy as lvl 24 nin/war. No drop but a fun battle. I ran around and built TP to 300%. Then I started with Blade: Retsu and the paralyze stuck for quite a while. So it was smooth sailing from there.

got the drop (scythe) first kill today, within 10 minutes of walking into the place.

his regular hits were doing around 20-35 dmg each, and his WS did 79 i think.. or 75... somewhere in the 70s. i owned the hell out of him with my taru 37drk/war

w00t lol i went afk for a loooong time and came back went to one of the rooms there he was and i got drop, yay for T2!

Well ive been half-*** camping it for half an hour, i need the scythe for my drk. so im campin it on my 54 thf and ive jus been in the room waiting while i take care of som RL matters over the phone. I dunno if i read the map wrong er sumthin but the other guy spawned and i killed it and got the spear lol
# Jul 18 2005 at 2:02 AM Rating: Decent
Easy NM to camp and you can make a killing in gil if it works out ok.
Things to know
--- Either the NMs or a baloon pops every 8 mins to the dot

--- I think Dio only drops scythe and Gog only drops Spear but i could be wrong

--- If your a low level barly taking these NMs on watch out for Demonsional Death. On my 51THF/25NIN it does 125ish. I imagine Bomb King's Self-destruct would do alot too.

--- If you need to pass the time and you have AoE link the cardians and kill them all at once for a good laugh

Dio 4/6
Gog 3/8
King 2/4

after camping a bit more and killing dio twice ive learned a bit. if somebody is there already dont bother but if the place has been empty for a few hours when you kill 1 ballon 8 mins later dio or gog or bomb king will spawn, i think. not conformed but happened to me all 3 times i came across dio (entered empty ruins, kill 1 ballon, wait 8 mins, dio spawn. so good luck by the way killed him with thf30/rng15 with 2 hr not to much trouble
that sucked
# Jul 03 2005 at 4:27 AM Rating: Decent
was bored in windy decided to see if i could find bomb king. went to the ruins and killed the ballon which was already there waited 8 mins exactly checked wide scan see Doppelganger Dio. ran to the area one other guy was already on that side standing there i even went in the wrong room at first found and started fighting. was getting beat used 2hr got him down really low had 150tp he uses his death hit skill thing kills me. would have won if i used ws then other guy comes along kills him in 1 hit.
How do you make these suckers spawn???
# Jun 27 2005 at 12:53 AM Rating: Decent
I've been here for about an hour or so but none of them are seeming to pop. How do you make them pop?
