farming raptor skins

I was farming these with my 48 monk and didn't have any trouble at all. I got a raptor skin every 3 or 4 kills and then I'd rest. A stack of raptor skins are worth about 45k on my server ifrit.

Was playing around in Sauromugue Champaign on my 50 drg, killed 2 skinks and got a raptor skin drop. Thought wow this must have a decent drop rate, and switched to my 48 thf. Killed about 10 and had 0 drops.
easy prey......

Ok, i was walking back to jeuno from garlaige one time as a 34 thf/nin and one o these suckers agroes me. I was still pretty close to garlaige so i decided to fight it and if the battle went south i could still zone, but i kicked his butt lol. I couldnt believe how valuable the + evasion an emperor hairpin gives til that moment, i thought i was gunna get annihilated but with all my evasion + utsusemi + bloody bolts all i saw on the screen was sauromugue skink misses morbeus lol.

They're so tempting to kill because when you check them they're way tougher than it says.

This evil beast is deadly. It gave no mercy to my warrior, who wanted to travel back to Jeuno after leveling up at Citadel, twice ><

Just did Tachi: Enpi > Tachi: Enpi on one of those, took out like 3/4 out of their HP, they're EP to me at Lv.33. They're 'very' weak against water.
Fernans Diaries??

These things are FAST! I got aggroed and used Flee, but it still caught up and tore me apart!

As a level 41 Thf/Nin i can solo two of these before i have to rest. They check as Easy Prey to me, so i think a few more levels and i'll be able to farm these decently.
shame on me....

I should check here before i fight this mob....

Lastnite i head to Garlaige Citadel to lv my lv 32 DRG, i was boring to wait for a party. So, i decide to walk outside and hunt for some easy stuff. I saw 1 Sauromugue Skink wihch classified as is "Easy Prey" to me. so, i start the fight and.... i got kill while it still has 50% life.... what a shame....

having sneak or being lvl 45+ is a must with these. if you do get aggro while in a party that is of high enough level just fight it - even if you near the zone to jeuno the skink will still take down a lvl 40 that is properly equipped

the mob is also hard hitting - it did 30+ dmg to my lvl 46 with updated gear

I'm 42 and they con TWTBW to me, really easy actually, could probably take on 3 or 4 on separate fights before i need to rest.
very fast
# Feb 12 2004 at 9:34 PM Rating: Decent
it is impossible to run from these without some sort of a sleep or bind spell.. even when i sleeped it with mary's horn as an easy prey to me, it still caught up to me after being asleep for a good bit
very fast

I tried to outrun it, but one of these things hit me for 183 points of damage. I was a level 1 whm at the time, trying to go from Windy to Jeuno. My first attempt was not successful. :D

This also drops Raptor Skin

They drop, but so rarely it's not worth the trouble. Otherwise, you'd never see one alive in Sauromugue Champaign. ^^
