Damaged by Cure

Just fought Doppelganger Dio and was able to damage him with cure spells like undead. Banish was more effective against him too. Soloed him as 30 whm/15 blm. 0/1 on Bomb King and 0/1 on Doppelganger Dio so far :/

Camped this nm for four hours as 55pld/27thf. Fought 1 bomb king 2 gogs and 2 dios (and like 25 balloons). All I got was stupid revival root from each shadow. The bomb kind just gave me bomb ash and arm. Gonna try again, hopefully I have better luck.

omg I just happened to be in the area - came down from sandy to do some quests. And since I was on foot I decided to go into the runes in this area to investigate as a level 25blm, OK... I was thinking... what is the point of this place... I checked behind every single door and found nothing but pure weaklings. So I decide to check this last door, and BOOM! There he is in front of me when I open the door - a devil elf. I was shocked, and thought it was another person, but then I checked him and found out too late that it was "impossible to gauge". So w/e right this is supposed to be level 25 tops (so EM for me)? IT KILLED ME IN LIKE 5 HITS!!!!!! Whats up with that? And then I had to go all the way back to sandy, where I just came from!!!!!
horizon breaker?

no, you do not get the title "horizon breaker" from this mob. That title is from the quest "in defiant challenge" (genkai 1)
# Jun 16 2007 at 8:40 PM Rating: Decent
i think you get a title for killing this guy but im not for sure tho
its called "Horizon Breaker". if anyone can comfirm this it will help :P
Not easy, but soloable.

I just got through soloing Gog as a lvl 25 RDM/WHM. It was a tough fight, but if you play it right you can win. Be sure and keep blink up until he does dimensional death, or you just might die as I did my first time against him. Dimensional death followed by a critical for about 250 damage the first fight, and I never recovered.

Killed him on Earthsday and so far the drop rate is 1/3.
Dont worry mages...

I dunno what you guys are talking about GOG is a CINCH as a lvl 27 BLM/whm Taru .. yeah maybe if you just try to take him on, or simply bind him he might pwn you hard.. but if you just plan things out you can rediculously overkill him, im telling you it wasnt even a close fight... basically use Elemental seal, then sleep.. so gauranteed sleep then cast about 4 enfeebs, Slow/paralyze/blind/then bind and then start nuking, probably get off 3 100dmg+ nukes before bind wears, then hes a slower more parlyzed gog that misses more often, you can choose to heal yourself and do a few more nukes while hes slicing at you, or do what I did, and get your tp to 300 percent before hand off the cardians, and then 160 DMG SERAPH STRIKE FOR THE WIN!!... holy elemental, so sweet. still had half my mana and most of my health. could have done the same stuff a few lvls lower...

EDIT: Didnt notice hes also weak against fire.. maybe next time ill use that spell >_<

First time I camped the NMs here, I ran into all but Gog... Tonight, I fought him twice.
I have to say, the level on Gog is a little higher than Dio [Who I also fought, and gave no EXP]. This fella gave me EXP both times I fought them.

Not too tough, although he did manage to hit Dimensional Death on me the second time [For 109]. The second time was, as one can assume, when he gave me the spear.
Rough idea of what you're in for...

This was basically 150 minutes of camping for spear and scythe using a 50Pld/25War.

Useless stats, discoveries and trivia:

(i) Holy Circle very effective.
(ii) Dio and Gog both intimidated by Paladins.
(iii) Protect produces a Hexagon, Protect II produces an Octagon, Protect III produces a Decagon (I was bored and skilling up Enhancing inbetween pops).
(iv) Total damage taken during 150 minutes: 1 Hp.
(v) Typing /angry motion when standing next to Gog or Dio looks quite funny when you're a Galka.
(vi) If you position yourself under the spotlights in one of the rooms and face the door, then target one of the nearby cardians, you can hit attack just as somebody opens the stone door, draw your weapon, and scare the hell out of them.

heh, thats how my trips have mostly been turning out. . . Billions of Uberly Stupid baloons & every few random times an actual NM pops. . . I'm still waiting for Gog to give me his spear after the 5~ times I've killed him ~_~

After i killed gog i came right in here to tell every1, i come back, and doppleganger dio is attacking me!!!! (p.s. i have really good eva cause i came in and he missed like 7 times in a row) anyway, i came in and my health was down to 200 out of 575, and each of its hits do 30dmg o.o; no 2hr, no weapnskills, nothing, i start attacking it and hope my mad evading skills hold out :P im winning, i couldnt beleive it! then it used dimensional death o.o; hit and did 102dmg, (32war/11nin) i had 24 health so 1 more hit and im dead, it was sooooooo close, right b4 it attacked i did and killed it!!! :P the moral of this story, NEVER stay in the same room after a life threatening battle lol P.S. NO DROP! ;_;
K so this is how it alllll happened
# Aug 17 2005 at 8:10 AM Rating: Decent
I was Trying to get that bomb ring cause, well, its kinda good ^^; for my lv atleast, so anyway, i continue to kill balloons and the three of whatevers in the rooms on the first map, bomb king appeared very frequently like 3 times (no drop though ><) but after that he just stopped appearing O.o still hasnt popped yet, and i never seen 1 of the doppelgangers, opened the door and saw it O.O *froze* then noticed.....im gonna die if i dont 2hr it o.o; so i run in swinging like mad, use 2hr then 300% gale axe (32war/11nin) and im owning it, it keeps missing, after about 30 seconds its almost dead and the whole time im thnking (please dont use dimesnion death) and (why did i use my 2hr?) it continued to miss and only hit me 2 times, 30dmg then 24dmg. Then it uses dimensional death o.o;;;;;;;; i /panic and think omg! im gonna die! ;_; noooooo i was so close, but it uses it and MISSES! :P I kill it but no drop ;_; just a stupid revival tree root, o ya, if ur my lv u can kill it easily, no reason to use 2hr, make sure u got good evasion though cause when it hits it hurts :P

I took this guy down tis morning as BST27/WHM13. Very easy fight. I had a CrabFamiliar out to tank it and over the whole fight neither of us died and I only had to cure myself once. I got the drop on my first try. ^.^

/laugh. Reading all these posts about Dio and Gog slicing through people makes me laugh. I've been killing em off easily all day, though my proceeds are only 22k off of a scythe. Anyways, it's simple for a Summoner to take these down with the avatar battle strategy, I mean I even took down Bomb King at 22SMN/2RNG that way! All I'm saying is that it's extremely easy to fight NMs in here (or in general) as a SMN or a BST (With a familiar, of course).

lvl 24 thf, I had taken down:

Whirlwind - got the Light Solea Drop
Bu'Ghi - Got Gorget
Bomb King - Got Ring

So I'm feelin good about my day so far and before heading to bed I pop in here, and who do I see? Doppleganger Gog. He still had 3/4 of his HP left, as I lay face down on the floor. Took me by total surprise, how hard this guy hit. I was wearing Beetle +1 armor and was still getting hit for 40+ a shot.
Funny and sad

Me 51blm/25whm and a LS Rng bud were waistin time again huntin Nms for our trophy wall. While i was collecting cardians for AOE massacre i ran into this guy.

It's the Northern most Tower in East Sarutabaruta. Check West of the Tahrongi(sp?) canyon zone on the map if you still can't find it.

Nope. Most jobs have to wait till level 35 to be able to kill him, and Warriors are one of those jobs. Can't wait till I get level 35, I'm so close to it can smell it. (Level 33 right now.)

I camped these guys yesterday me (War30/Thf15) and my mate nyrox (Blm30/Whm/15) we where the only 2 there we only got the scythe but oh well. out of the two Dio hits the hardest and Gog is hard to kill.
I'm conviced that they only pop 3 times a day. becasue after we claimed all NMs three times we got no pops for 3+hours!
Dio 1/3
Gog 0/3
Bomb King 0/3
I'm on Siren btw

I just had my very first exp with Gog. It was a lot of fun.

Two other LS members and I were bored farming crawlers one night and decided to try for the Bomb King. I was a level 21 RDM, one other was a level 18 THF and the third was a level 18 WAR. We partied up, not caring about the exp and just ran around killing everything.

Unfortunately, the spot where the placeholder for the Bomb King spawned most often was Gog's room. So, of course, we ran into him once. It wasn't pretty....about halfway through his HP, we were all in the yellow so I decided to 2-hour and risk the hate. Heh. Risk. That's funny..I got off about 4/5 Fire spells before I was dead. He didn't care for me much. But I did enough damage that the other two survived.

Still..no drop. Just revival root.

Ah well..I'll have my revenge soon enough.

I lost count on how many times i've killed these NMs, I think I've killed Gog 3 times now, maybe 4, and still no drop; Dio at least a dozen with 1 drop; and Bomb King at least 20 with 3 drops. I would not even think of doing these without RNG sub, hence my BLM hasn't gone after any of these yet. I've camped them as 32PLD/14RNG, 33MNK/1RNG, and currently 36WAR/18RNG. Easy kills, though as PLD I felt that I had to throw a Cure3 for Dio. I clear out the Two cardians from time to time for tp/cleaning up wide scan list (boomerang ranged attack hits for 110+ with a 65 skill, but my polearm only hits for 90-100 with 101 skill...weird to me).

I don't know if Gog's tougher than Dio or vice versa. Gog has a lot more hp than Dio, but Dio hits a good bit harder...well, when either of them can hit me that is. I do remember though that I set 2 of my personal high weaponskill damage records on a Dio. 286 with Backhand Blow, and now 344 with Double Thrust (wish i could have Sneak Attacked that one). A BLM doing 252 with Nightmare Scythe to the Geyser Lizard kinda impressed even me though (SMN sub + Mithra, why can't I melee...I hit for about 60% of what a DRK with capped skill does, though not quite as often).

The spawn is timed, but it varies quite a bit:
- 8-8 1/2 minutes after a Balloon.
- Bomb King usually spawns about 30 seconds early though.
- 8 1/2-9 minutes after a Bomb King (If not another Bomb King, of course).
- 9-9 1/2 minutes after Dopelganger Dio.
- 10-10 1/2 minutes after Dopelganger Gog.
I time it with a stopwatch (cell phone) from the time the defeated corpse disappears and the mob is no longer on track, and I see these times pretty consistently.

My very rough guesses of the pop lottery are thus:
- Balloon - 60%
- Bomb King - 25%
- Dio - 10%
- Gog - 5%
I'm sure some people will think this very wrong, and I did go an hour once without seeing a single Balloon; but as said, that's my guess.

Sorry if you read all that expecting highly important imformation.
