Historical Information

In Scandinavian lore, the Skogsfru (Swedish for "lady of the forest") was a female wood sprite said to take the form of a nude woman with long hair down the front, and either a cow's tail, a fox's tail, or what appeared to be a hollow tree trunk along the back. Due to her tendency to lure men into the forest with the offer of sex, only to leave them lost within, it was considered extremely bad luck to ever see one, especially when hunting.

Soloed this a few times last night as 67PUP/DNC. Very easy fight if you catch him at night. A little harder if he spawns during the day. His daytime TP moves can be brutal but with my evasion gear he missed way more often than hit. He popped for me on the 1 hour mark everytime but sadly 0/3 on the ring.

Skogs Fru is a simple battle for me 75BRD/NIN. Mambo/Paeon with some evasion gear and he'll rarely hit. only thing he does hit me with is his Tp moves. one got me for 300+ but wasnt worried. I just slept it once i needed to recast songs. Too bad he didnt drop it >.> oh well, now that i know i can solo it i'll be trying more often.

I just solo'd Skogs Fru as 75COR/37RNG. It hurt! I had to Light Shot (sleep) the NM, then get Cure IV from nearby pixies. Sharpshot/Barrage did about 650 damage, and 1000 for Slug Shot. I was using Dancer's Roll (Regen) and Rogue's Roll (Critical Hits), so a better roll selection might make this alot easier.

I just soloed as 65 SAM/DNC (no soboro) and it was a very easy fight. Seigan + Third Eye took almost all of the hits he managed to hit me with and I only had to use curing waltz 2 once or twice. I ended the fight with 150% tp and 100% hp.

For clarification on spawn location:

Skogs spawns in the lower half of H-10 right past the small wooden wall along the road.

Widescan info on the set of 3 ladybugs Skog Fru Ph's (Edit: Have correct PH info now). PH's seem to be on 2h10m game time respawn. Widescan information is based off of bsts highest widescan (60+BST), lower levels and RNG's may vary.

If your standing in his pop area, then the widescan list will read

...(many Djinn)
...(many battraps)
Ladybug (this one can travel out of range)
Ladybug (this one can travel out of range)
Ladybug - PH (edit: on path, not PH)
Ladybug - PH (edit: on path, not PH)
Ladybug - *PH - Have verified this is correct PH
...(many more ladybugs)

***Skogs Fru Pop***
Orcs ...etc

Skogs Poped 1h20m and 1h15m after last ToD. From previous lotto NM experience, I would guess that this is a 1h-2h pop, with a possible pop skipped every now and then.

Wouldn't recommend widescan to identify the NM pop, as he pops in differnt location on mob list. Use it to correctly identify the PH and keep tabs on your kill time, 2h10m game time pop timers on bugs, let the competition worry about killing other non-phs.

YAY im 1/1 on Skogs....I was out ther campin for about an hr and 1/2.. The 1st time I saw it pop, a thf/war beat me to claim.. The thf was lvl 73 and I saw him get hit a few time...I was camping w/ my 62 thf/nin and was afraid I wouldnt be able to solo Skogs. Well I waited another hr and 10 min and got claim. Fought Skogs for about 8-10 min. The only time I got hit was by Sudden Lunge a few times, once for over 300 dmg. I was able to cast shadows everytime they went down and didnt get touched. I also used bloody bolts to keep HP up from Sudden Lunge. I got drop.
No luck yet

This NM will pop every hour off the three lady bugs that pop on the path, and on either grassy side in east ron (s) at H-10. Skogs Fru and the placeholders pop in H-10 past the small wooden wall thingy. Skogs Fru can on very very rare occasions not pop for three hours. I camped him as a 75WHM/thf. Skog Fru's tp attack hit me through stoneskin for about 200-300 damage. A DD job could solo this at 70.
Is this a hard Notorious Monster to claim?

I just saw Ecphoria Ring in the Auction House, and was wondering how difficult it is to find this NM. Should I spend an hour-3hours looking for it? Thanks.
