i've hunted this thing forever, and still no drop, probably 0/36 by now

i might just do a BCNM because i cant seem to get this stupid scroll

btw im a level 48 blm/24 whm, so i would have an ease at killing it

Im currently a lvl 30/15 (mnk/war) and killed him fairly easy which was good and all....But not sure if it was just luck or not after i killed him the next thing that spawned were like 6 different skeleton guys i believe ghost wights and crossbones they didnt do much damage but you know lvl 30 and having 6 things attack at once kinda was a bit crazy not sure if it helps just thought i would throw it in there.
My two cents

Okay, I killed this thing today. I want to dispell a few rumors. First it was not a full moon. It was the first quarter moon that I got the drop. Second it was not lights day. Don't recall the day but it was not lightsday.

I was on my whm, level 25 and decided to camp this thing for my blm. I killed it with hardly any problems and even got a little exp. with the drop. Maybe this has something to do with the ease at which one does or does not obtain it? I don't know for sure. I do however know that something similar has been mentioned on an NM drop I know of. The infamous JEJ. So, there's my two cents. Hope it helps.

hmm i cant remember which thread it was, i think it was the thread on a drop rate of "red mages testomony" but there was alot of arguing and flaming on whether your level affects drop rates, someone even said it changes exponentionally as you level up... which is. well. silly :P

in the end someone asked SE whether it does, and they said no, your level doesnt affect the drop rate
Got the scroll - by chance.

I've been Fishing since the update, and since I'm 21, I'm on the boat. Whenever I see the message "We're nearing ...", I step on the deck and try to kill whatever is there during the last few seconds till we dock.

Well, this time it was a Phantom, which dropped the Ice Spikes scroll. It was Last Quarter Moon on Lightsday, so whoever said it would only drop at full moon was definetly wrong (though it's not the best time to fish, believe me). Piece of Cake for a 55 PLD; Banish II, Holy, 2 strikes - dead.
On a wild ride

<Asura> I am on the ship, its night time, I kill the odd Pugil and Sea crab as usual, Then i see a Bogy-lookin thing. I kill it since it checks a "Easy Prey" Half way through, get healed from a whm. I get Ice Spikes, see the guy that healed me fall. (I should NOT have done this.) I check the Sea horror that killed him, run, too late, hits me for 400-200, bang, i'm a gonner. See that i warped at Sandy, sell the Spell for 60k, thats about it.

alright everybody says that it drops only on a full moon, well i've fought the phantom over 30+ times probably and i just got my first drop a few minutes ago and it WAS a full moon on lightsday i never checked before about the moons when fighting him cause i never got the drop but yeah i got my one and only drop on a full moon.

The one time I let someone else take the Phantom, the Scroll of Ice Spikes dropped for him. He promptly used after defeating the mob. :P

Kindness doesn't pay, I tell you!

Good Phantom Info

Anyone remember that stupid black wolf that only appears at night in gustaburg, and it needs to be killed so you can trade the dog collar for a map of gusgen mines? Remember how much of a pain he was to find? Well, the phantom is similair here is how...

Like the Black wolf, Phantom will spawn once every vana'diel day. If someone claims him, your sol and will have to wait another hour.

He spawns at night between times 20:00 - 1:00, and always on the deck. Try to time this so that you have enough time to kill Phantom before the boat docks. As a 36 rdm, I have no trouble taking this guy down in a couple of minutes.

Currently, I am 3/5 on the ice spikes drop. And have gotten the cotton cloth the other 2 times. I seriously doubt moon phase, day, or anything plays factor in the rate of the drop. But I cannot confirm this. But if your wondering if it only drops on full moons that is false. I have gotten the scroll on days the moon was not full.
Full moon??
# Oct 10 2004 at 6:41 AM Rating: Decent
I have heard form one of my LS mates that Phantom only drops Ice Spikes when there is a full moon. I dont know the validity of this claim but I do know he has sold many many Ice Spikes scrolls. I personally have killed Phantom about 4 times with no Ice Spikes drops but many Tree Root drops. Now that Ive lvl THF I plan to give him a shot making certain it is not a full moon to test the theory of Ice Spikes only on full moon. Ill report my findings = )
I think you'd be ok
# Sep 13 2004 at 11:36 PM Rating: Decent
I don't think the crossbones would agro. The crossbones don't agro to magic so you should be safe as long as you keep your distance if they con as easy prey.
# Sep 13 2004 at 11:33 PM Rating: Decent
Piece of cake to kill. Much easier than valkrum bogy's
# Aug 30 2004 at 2:59 PM Rating: Decent
OK i am a 42WHM/21BLM. if the pirates attack and i am up the stairs, and i cast dia on the phantom will it also agro the crossbones?

I just took one out on lightsday, it was about 22:00 headed to Selbina. No drop.
So close.......
# Jul 07 2004 at 5:05 PM Rating: Decent
I was so close to killing phantom><. I controlled a sea monk and then at night phantom spawned. We started to kill Phantom and we would've owned him too. But unfortunatlly the dumb ship got to selbina. >< So I didn't get to finish killing him. /cry

My boyfriend and I have killed this thing at least 20 times since we've been able to beat it and have never gotten Ice Spikes, let alone much else of worth. I think twice we got a Revival Tree Root, and once we got a Cotton Cloth. We won BCNM 40 3 times and got a scroll of Ice Spikes 2/3 of those times, so if you really want it, either buy it and keep trying so you get your cash back when you sell it, or do BCNM :) Much easier, save the getting to lvl 40 thing ^^;;
