I have been fighting these as level 41BST/17THF to get the fangs, and using beasts from my old jugs to tank. I can probably fight 15-20 without resting. I basically keep fighting until my pet dies, and then I rest -- and at that point, I probably have about 200-300 HP left. Can you really steal from these? I keep trying and haven't gotten anything.
Man eating kitties!!!!

Aggro to Resting
# Feb 28 2005 at 11:50 AM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to let everyone know, for sure the Sabertooths Tigers in Carpenter's Landing aggro to Resting, 50PLD/THF, full HP, and was aggro'd by one while resting MP. LOL, stupid Tiger ^^
Aggro to Resting

any mob that aggroes will always aggro to you if you are resting, even if they are too weak

These aren't farmable until around 45-50. You might even die with a lvl 37

The ones in Jugner are Forest tigers. Sabertooth tigers ARE the ones in Batallia...
by scent maybe?
# Dec 09 2004 at 3:11 PM Rating: Default
I have been in a battle with three of these at once, and I used Hide, and it still saw me >.< I think they can detect by something else too. Yes Hide does work in the middle of battles

Yeah, many mobs detect and pursue by scent. So when you use Hide, it will still be able to detect you from scent. Hope that helps.
Yeah they do...

Lol think about it. Its a cat. Cats eat mice and fish. Crabs are sorta like fish so there you go I got a sheeps meat drop on the ones in the Forest so it explains theres a food chain. Lol now I can't wait til I bst these!

I noticed that what you steal from these guys is different from zone to zone.

Junger: Hare Meat (I recall)

Batallia: Land Crab Meat

so what do we get from the Campaign???

Yes. They are a great way to avoid the horrible trains in kazham. I recommend finding a bunker with a zone in the back and pull into there.

Make sure your whm has paralyna, and keeps paralyze off the tank, and you should do pretty well.
Tigers good money
# May 14 2004 at 2:54 PM Rating: Decent
Tigers are very good sources of money especially in battalia since they are all over the place. They do not link but do aggro. 40 hours worth of farming these will get you anywhere from 500k-1mil gil so if you have bad NM camping luck, you might want to try these. I can make 40k-50k off these in about 3hours so they are indeed good sources of income.
RE: Tigers good money
# May 18 2004 at 2:38 AM Rating: Decent
40-50k an hour at what level? I'm assuming you're a 45+ thief or 60+ Blm and you're doing this solo so you don't split the drops with others?
RE: Tigers good money
# Dec 08 2004 at 9:09 PM Rating: Decent
He said 40-50k in 3 hours. Quite a difference, in one hour it would be impossible, 3 hours is a reasonable figure for that amount of gil

28-32 may be the correct level for one of the zones they show up in, but not for both. The ones in Jugner are much easier.

The tigers located in Jugner Forest are Forest Tigers (lvl 22-25), not Sabertooths. :-) The level listed is correct for the Sabertooths in Battalia and Sauromugue.

I disagree - I've hunted them often as a 55THI/27NIN and they do not link. On more than one occasion, I've had one in battle while a 2nd one ran towards me only to run right through my character and continue randomly running.
RE: Linking
# May 21 2004 at 12:02 PM Rating: Decent
Actually both of you are correct.

In Batallia Downs, they do not link.

In Sauromugue Champaign, they do link.
