Historical Information

In French and Norman legends, the Dame Blanche (French for "White Lady") were said to be ghosts of women that roamed along ravines, bridges, and streams in the woods. Though sometimes benign (simply demanding a dance from anyone that would come across them), the Dame Blanche were also said to sometimes lead people into forests to get lost, or even throw them into ravines bristling with thorny plants.

as a side note, it seems that dame blance is a complete pain to dispel.

not that you have to. my rdm60/thf18 destroyed the ghost even with her ice spikes that wouldn't go away =3

easy fight, 5554 gil, one sarcanet cloth.

and three stacks of cotten cloths for the three hour wait. =P

Just thought I'd say...

Blanche->Blanc->French for white

Dame->Dutch for Lady

Edit:Everything below this line (done 30sec after original post)

Lady White...white could equal pale skin and dead people have pale skin...

Lady Dead and since my translations are in two different languages, subjects,verbs,etc probably get switched around so Dame Blanche = Dead Lady?

*shrug* It's 5:36AM

Dame blanche (in english White Lady) is a legend in france of a ghost who appears in the car of persons who pass near the place of her dead (an accidental death) at midnight. And she dispeaper with a horrible cry.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 23 2006 at 2:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I camped this thing for 2 days farming cotton cloth to skill-up clothcraft. First day I was there around 9 hours killing bogy, and nobody else shows up.Then 20 min. before it pops some assh*le named Raomao shows up, and of course it pops next to him so he gets claim, then leaves ><
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 01 2006 at 4:47 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK, there has only been mention of this guy being a 2-9 hour pop. I can confirm this is not always the case. I am on Siren server and am currently going on my 15th hour of no Dame Blanche. I have camped her numerous times and she tends to spawn more often in the 2-9 hour range but not always. Id like to confirm there has been no server maitenance. Once in the room with the bridge you will notice 3 bogy will spawn one side of bridge and 2 on the other, making a total of 5 bogy to kill. BUT... what side of the bridge 3 will spawn on and what side 2 will spawn on is random. It is my opinion that this 3rd bogy is dame blanches PlaceHolder. Until further notice though i would advise you to kill all 5 bogys in the room, this does not include the 6th that spawns on bottom of ramp, this is not a placeholder. From 1-6 cloths will drop, but be prepared for some serious waiting. On Siren stacks of cotton cloth are 20-25K and you will recieve many of these while killing Placeholders. Dame Blanche has around 2,300 Hit Points. NOTE:THE POST THAT MENTIONS DAME BLANCHE ONLY SPAWNS ON ONE SIDE OF THE BRIDGE IS INCORRECT. He does favor the side furthest from the set of question marks you will see along the wall but he does NOT always spawn on that side near ramp. He spawns anywhere in the large room, excluding the ramp. Hope this helps.
4 Cloths

It's nice to know the developers have a sense of humour, Blanche is the main character in a very famous play A Streetcar Named Desire

I've killed this NM twice now.

First time I got 26xx gil and a Sarcanet Cloth with no TH

Second Time I got 5414 gil and another Sarcanet Cloth.

was hoping for more cloth but only one dropped.

this is not a bad NM if you're farming cloth for sale/clothcraft :)
An act of BST stupidity... or Think Before Attack

So I was wandering around this section of Korroloko Tunnel killing thread leeches and clippers out of boredom. I come to a small bridge and there was a room full of bogies below me. Checking the nearest Bogyu, I see that it is an EM to me. Well... Not wanting to take on a room full of bogies at level 33, I move on back to my leeches and crabs.

After an hour or two, I hit my widescan and see the name Dame Blanche show up. I had never heard of this NM before so decided to take a peek. I charmed myself a thread leech and headed back to the bridge. There she was, sitting pretty in the room below me and I had the area to myself. I didn't even have time to think about how stupid it would be. The thread leech was quick to move in for the attack but it was dead before I could hit my Sic macro. One, two, three. I was down for the count but I was smart enough to have activated my Reraise earring before going to investigate.

After waiting for a few seconds, I allowed myself to be revived. I didn't have time to cast a cure before she was on my butt again. Racing as fast as my taru legs could carry me with only 12HP, I headed for the zone to West Altep. I barely made it to the zone but I lived and managed to drag my scrawny hide to Rabao.

I can't wait to be strong enough to bring down the Dame. There's gonna be a reckoning.
Awsome Farming and a NM to boot

Ok i only wish i had read this thread earlier than now. i have been in this are for 2 1/2 hrs now gotten 4 stacks of cotton cloth, one NM spawn which dropped one scarcenet cloth and the tree root. As a cloth crafter and needing gil this is great.
NM Bogy
# Oct 20 2005 at 5:02 AM Rating: Default
Im a level 62 drk. I started farming this spot at 55 with no problems. Then NM allways pops at the far end of the room away from the NIN leach qest end. I have seen this NM pop up from 2-8 hours from last kill. So the cotton cloth u get (21-25k)a stack and roots (6-9k) why farming why you wate for NM pop is not to bad. The cloth sells for ( 90 - 130K) each is nice NM allso drops from 2k-6k gil win you kill it . The most cloths it has droped for me has ben from 1-6 as DRK/THF.Well good luck and hope this helps.

It's not about camping the NM, really. You can make pretty good money farming his placeholders. The fact that he pops here is just more of an advantage to your farming.

Last night I got him, 2 Stacks of Cotton Cloth and 3 Saracent. That's, on my server, 120k in about an hour. Granted, I got lucky with his pop time, but if you time the spawns on the Bogy's, you can also farm Slime Oil and Spider Webs while you wait on repops.

This is just one of those NMs that is nice if you get it, but it's not the real reason you're in the area.
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

what is the exact <pos> of this NM?

I camped him on 7/19 from 5:30PM - 3:00AM w/ no pop. Yeah.. you heard me. 9.5 HRS... and no pop. I controlled ALL 9 bogy pops in the area JIC the update changed the spawn point a little... DEFINITELY not worth it in terms of gil. For me, it is now personal.

Long Pop Time
# Jul 20 2005 at 5:21 PM Rating: Default
This NM can pop 2-8 hours indeed, seriously not a NM worth camping...

EDIT: While farming Cotton Cloth I have found that Blanche has a 2-9 hour spawn time , lottery of course off of Bogys. Recently the price of Sarcent has gone up a lot on my server and now the camp is crowded.. alot. I don't understand why people think this is good money when the spawn time of this NM is so random.

Not worth camping

Its a NM that prob. isnt worth camping, seeing that it spawns from the Bogy's around it. But the Bogy's have a fairly great drop rate on Cotton Cloth, perfect for anyone who needs them for synthing. About 1/3 on drops w/o TH. The NM spawns about after 2-3 hrs of continous killing of the Bogy's. I got 2 Sarcenet Cloth's and 1200 gil from it. Cloth's are about 35k on Quetzalcoatl Server. I would say about lvl 35-40 for the NM.
