i think a nm is a nm and i agree mythril is 3k more in your pocket than b4 so stop complaining and whining and suck it up

3 gold ores

Gold Ores is the mainly course for this NM. if you have THF you can steal 2, kill it, and MAYBE get another one. that happened to one of my friend. 3 gold ores... :D
Spawn Area
# Feb 22 2005 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
This spawn area shown on this website is not entirely accurate... the spawn area is MUCH bigger now.

I have seen it spawn at (J-10)... this nm is a guilty pleasure of mine^^

Lol... people don't camp this nm for what it drops... camp it for what you can steal from it (A gold ore) ^^

I would camp him but i'm to darn lazy.

Leveling my mule (Luztarion, Elvaan Warrior, now level 13) when Bigmouth Billy popped in front of me.

I was level 11 at the time and resting after an EP massacre. So I ran up to him and used Mighty Strikes at the start just to be safe. Downed him with relative ease.


Iron Ore
Transluscent Rock
Mythril Ore
Earth Crystal

Each item isn't too impressive, but added up it came to about 5k. Not something I'd camp, but a pleasant surprise when in the area.

Someone needs to retime Billy. I was camping him today, and must've killed 30-40 carrion worms. He never showed in the 2+ hours I was there. Quite a disappointment.

My friend and i got bored hunting jaggedy, so we went looking for Bigmouth Billy. I asked him:

me: what type of mob is it?
him: Pugil, i think...
me: ok

we went up and down that river and never found that [email protected]$$trd...i later found out it was a worm >.<
my advice, know ure facts when ure hunting them
<Sneak Attack>? YES!
# Jan 30 2005 at 11:42 PM Rating: Decent
I remember a while ago reading a post saying not to bother using Sneak Attack on a Worm because there's no way to tell front from back... well, to make it easier for you thieves out there, there is a way. Before you attack a worm, take a walk around it and look at it. You will notice one side is dark (the front) and the other side is lighter (the back). Just use Sneak Attack on the lighter side of the worm and youll succeed. just a little helpful input, hope it helps those of you lvling thf or camping this NM. Good luck to all!!
So far i havent seen this guy, but i think ill give him a try sometime soon :) take care all!

First time i killed it (1st nm) i didnt know whar was gona hapen as a lvl 14mnk/thf but any way at the end i realised it was a nm and it droped mithral ore (cheap [email protected]$$terd) the ore only sells for 3k on kujata
# Jan 11 2005 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
we share the same name (billy) so i camped him. claimed him after killin' carrion worms for about 35 minutes. was using my 41rdm/20thief, so i slept him til i eventually stole gold ore. dropped mythril ore for me.

unless you're just passing by, or he has the same name as you, i wouldn't dismount my choco for him.

these kind of nm's are for ppl with widscan. they'll always pop in different place so use widescan when camping him.
