Fought this last night in a JP pt, the puller spotted it and asked the leader whether or not to try. There were no other manticores around and he was the only thing available so we pulled him. Our Nin tank was awesome, always had shadows up and the War/Nin and me (Drk/Thf) closed light, dropped his HP from 90% to 30% and a MB made the final hit. No drop though.

All in all an easy fight, it was a lvl 70 exp pt, though our Rdm was 68 and the Blm and me were 71.
On ffxisomepage it says it pops every hour as a lottery spawn from the other manticores, but he didn't pop again that night and it was a 4hr pt. =/

I have kill this NM twice i am 0/2. NO LOCKHEART. I kill him once in a experience points party. The 2nd time I kill him on the way to the Cloister of Gales and no drop. This sucks. This NM is not hard but you can get a lot of agro by the manticores. I suggest you pull this NM to the cave near Cloister of Gales. Because you will get massive agro and die. Happy Hunting!

my exp last nite with this NM

we were PTing last nite @ cape and exping off the dessert mantiores. After about 1.30 hours of exping, the puller accidentally pulled this NM. We were a lvl 70 PT, the Brd used 2 hours, we manage to kill this NM with Ease. No luck on the drop though. I think this NM will pop after a certain number of Manticores killed, similar to OSE @ Onzozo.

Just thought to share my experience.

Killed him about 6times leveling here with my static.

He gives about the same exp as the other manticores. As a 70ninja normal ones hit me for around 150 and he hits me for about 300(when i get hit... these thing happen).

Seems to have a bit more hp than the standard ones cause he takes a bit longer to kill.

Seems to spawn around every 2hour possibly lottery but we`re killing all the manticores there anyways so couldnt confirm that.

Must have killed him around 6times never seen the sword drop.

We've been leveling off manticores in this area for a while now. Sometimes he spawns twice in a session, but sometimes we go for 3-4 hours without him ever popping. Oh well. Still haven't seen the GS drop.
1 hour, give or take

Seems to spawn once an hour as a lottery on the Greater Manticores in the area. My pick-up party of 68-69 beat it without much difficulty (NIN tank, of course). It just has about double the HP and a bit more STR than the other manticores. Doesn't spam TP attacks or do anything differently otherwise. 1/2 on the drops (NIN got it. ; ;). I'd estimate his level around 77-80, same as the manticores in the area.

He's just the same as every other manticore but hits harder. Usually gives about 140-160exp per kill, so also believe he's the same levels as the others.

Right now my static is somethin like 1/8 drops. Dont think the drop is too often.
