Historical Information

The Chonchon is a creature (considered a mythical bird) of the Mapuche mythology, and later also present in the Chilean folk myth and in southern Argentina. The Chonchon is the magic transformation of the powerful kalkus (mapuche sorcerer), that knows the secret of the Kalkus, to become this feared creature. The kalku or the sorcerer would carry out the transformation in Chonchon being anointed by a magic cream in the throat that makes his head removed from the rest of the body, and his head become this creature.

The Chonchon has the shape of a human head with feathers and talons; its ears, which are extremely large, serve as wings for its flight on moonless nights. Chonchons are supposed to be endowed with all the magic powers of and can only be seen by other kalkus, or by wizards that want this power. They are known for their cry of "tue tue tue" during their flights. The Chonchon is considered a mythical bird that announces "bad luck", and the form in that the kalkus use to carry out easily their wicked activities. The Kalku transformed in chonchon, also can drink the blood of sleeping peoples.

He spawns in the Depression on J-9 anywhere from the northern hill to the part where it starts to incline upward.

I saw alot of good drop rates I might not have been luck I was 58BST/28THF but i had a 74DRK kill it for me. Used BST to claim.

I went 1/3 on drop.

Another bit of info.

30 min respawn timer. for me it was usually anywhere from 60-85 minutes. Spawns towards the bottom on the Wide Scan List.
