I found out that u have to kill a certain amount of Carrion Worms for billy to spawn. And i have a question, How much could you sell the ores and stones for at AH? Thank you and good luck!
RE: Billy

the stones themselves arnt worth that much, usually about 1-2K on fenrir server, and the stone he drops usually depeneds on the day when you kill him, and yes, you do need to kill the carrion worms to get him to spawn, AND the area which allakhazam has marked where he spawns , is not completly right, the few times i have seen him he was on the west side of the river, closer to h-8 and h-9

Just fought it at I9 as 36whm. Was a nice surprise after waiting for several mobs in Ranperre's Tomb and getting nothing. Dropped: Iron Ore, Mythril Ore for me.
It's taunting me...

Wow, I remember when I started this was the very first NM I saw Xx;
Heh, when I saw its 'Strength is Impossible to Guage!' I kinda just stood there looking at it until someone ran by and killed it.

And then a month later...
I'm leveling my Mnk sub and I see it again. So my friend and I decide to go look for it (ahhh, switching back to war...)...no luck ^^;

And then AGAIN I see it, I'm a Whm8/Rdm4...I take my chances and run for it...and it goes back into the floor Xx

Sadly, I never found out where it surfaced Xx evil Orcs and Goblins beat me up ><

I saw this NM once when I was a 8 RDM and got myself killed. My RDM is Now 23. Will I get much of any exp using my red mage, or should I just wait until my 10 White Mage put on a few levels?

When you camp NM's the last thing you need to worry about is xp. When you think NM think drop! Xp can be found anywhere, Rare items and special items cannot. I hope this helps.

A couple stories...

Leveling SAM on my Tarutaru...

My first attempt was when I was level 9.. figired why not, nice thing about worms, if you get down to about 25 HP and you are losing, run like hell... stone won't kill you. So i took a few stabs at him, few ranged attacks... hardly even hurt the guy. My 2HR wasn't ready.

Couple levels later, I hit level 11. 2HR was ready. This was my first time using Self Renkei in a real situation. First Tachi: Enpi did 80 DMG, second did 70 DMG, followed by a 50 DMG Distortion... that was 200HP off Bigmouth right there. Took about 5 more swings and he was dead. Man I love Samurai. Got 72 XP from him at level 11, and I got an Earth Crystal! =\

Moral: Don't attempt unless your 2HR is ready, or you are lv13-14
LV to kill BB

What level would you consider on taking on Bigmouth Billy as a Thief? I am level 10 right now no sub-job, do you think I can take him? I have.....

Beestinger Maple Shield None None

Ryl. Ftm. Bandana Justice Bdg. Tourmaline E. non

Ryl. Ftm. Vest Ryl. Ftm. Gloves Windy R. Brass R

Rabbit Mnt. Lthr. Belt Lthr. Trsrs. Lthr. Boots

Thanx Plz help. I really need gil.
RE: LV to kill BB
# Jul 27 2004 at 4:04 AM Rating: Decent
Well, I don't know.

Look this is the problem:

Thiefs already are weaker than most of jobs, so, an equal enemy, can already be death to you.
You don't have trick attack yet *Which is really handy*... You get it at 15, and at 15, you get TH1 Too! SO you'd best wait till 15, and kick it's ***...

Though, if you use KNUCKELS BAGHNAKS or CLAWS, instead of a knnife or dagger, you might do the job, and you could use {Perfect Dodge}.

Another problem, Nm's are always a bit stronger then it says. A warrior 10, would have difficulties Killing Leaping Lizzy. And i think it's the same with this.

And image:
You camp him now, at lvl 10.
You luckily manage to kick the crap out of him...
But you get no worthy item... You'd waist all the trouble for nothing...
I suggest you get lvl 15 and kill it ^^.

Kinda hard to get a snk off on a worm if you are solo since you can't really tell which way it faces.
RE: LV to kill BB
# Oct 17 2004 at 3:50 PM Rating: Decent
on worms the front side is brighter than the back. The back side looks as if its in shadow. fairly easy to tell the difference

thfs get SNEAK attack at 15. trick attack sould be useless against this thing cuz ur gonna be soloing it so there is no one to trick off of, and thfs cant use claws at that lvl.

i killed this as a 37 thf when i ran into it omw to sandy, it has a lot of hp so i wouldnt try it at 10

I have been looking for BB twice around as lvl 11-12 monk. Both times it took me about half an hour to find him. In between, i killed every gob and worm around, and found some chestnut logs too.
First time he didnt drop anything. Next time, he dropped a red stone and a iron ore. I think it was well spent time. Gave a little money, a little exp and a thrill finding him an wondering what he might drop :)

Funny story about my expirience with this guy.

First NM I ever ran into, and at the time I having no idea what the heck they were.
Anyway, I was noobing around down the river as a level 11 WAR, when I came across this level 5 THF getting the bejesus beat out of him by this HUGE worm! Cautiously creaping closer to Billy *figuring that the little thief sucker would keep him distracted long enough for me to grab a quick glance* I discovered the horrifying words of "impossible to gauge" and ran like no tommorrow! Days later I discovered I could have probably killed him. >.< And never again did I see the nutorious Bigmouth Billy...
RE: Ha ha
# Aug 06 2004 at 4:01 PM Rating: Decent
almost the exact same way with me...i misunderstood "impossible to gauge" ( dont ask me how...) but i was only a lvl 7 Warrior/nothing watching a lvl 9sam/mnk get killed by it

I was looking for billy for weeks now, I'm out lvng thf up from 9. I run into him like he's an ordinary worm. It pwnd me, while I was sending /say help! for a cure or two. A hi lvl whm who was plvng someone stood there and watched me die. Proceeded to kill billy over my lifeless body. Raised me and /cheered me on?
I have no luck with NM's

Madcow, I got a secret you can use next time something like this happens. It may sound harsh to some (especially those VE guys) but here is what you do. If you are in a close battle and you *might* be beaten, say in /sh the following:

/sh Cure me or I call for help.

Do this ONLY if you know there is a mage around who can cure, DO NOT try to take on Lumbering Lambert with your Lev. 10 WAR, get hit then shout "Cure me or I call for help." That would be foolish and **** people off. I would have no prob throwing a Cure or two at someone. I would rather someone get a drop than nothing. I personaly have not done this but the logic behind it makes good sense to me. Rate me down if ya like, but i feel doing this for one another would promote a more peaceful campsite when NM hunting.

Good Hunting

Ok, ive never even camped this NM but i was heading down to the tomb to help a friend of mine do Sandy mission 2 i think it was. anyway, i see him underwidescan so i go kill him. He drops mithril ore and iron ore, in a few minutes the auto lot drops the iron ore im my backpack but nothing happens with the mythril ore. Ask my buddy if he has it but nope. And I know this for sure because he is my roomate and i can go check on him, hahaha. But it would say who it went to anyways. So I check the treasure and its gone. WTF not that I mind losing the little amount of money it would sell for but thats not the point anyways. I wonder if GM s can do anything about things like this. Anyone know? anyways good luck to all.

The treasure pool does clear every time you and your party zone, but in a party the items all go to the last party member to leave the zone. Keep that in mind when in a party. :D

Was farming in ERonfaure one day as my whm, which was like lvl 20 something. Found him randomly. It's beautiful when you can silence and just nuke it to death. Anyway. No drop. Somewhat annoying, was my first NM, too. >>;

to a newb this may be entertaining but unless this has some item that hasn't been reported that maybe extrememly rare or something it is totally pointless! I killed it once got the Translucent but for the most part not worth the time to walk over there.

Fought BMB twice. The first time i got a Red Rock & a Mythril Ore (got about 2.2k gil total from AH sales). It has a 1 hour pop time and Gold & Platinum Ore Can Be Stolen From Him.

IF you can steal gold and platinum ore why wouldn't you just stand there for like 15 mins not attacking just stealing that ?

That is a good idea Nick. Think about it, a 15 THF/WHM. Dia to claim and Steal Steal Steal. I think I will try it. I will post results, Might try THF at 15 and 20.

# Jun 28 2004 at 10:47 PM Rating: Decent
why don't you do 30whm/15thf? do stoneskin and blink, then rest while the steal is being recharged and ocasionally getting up to cast dia, stoneskin, and blink...just a thought...^_^

Let's be for real guys, SE wouldn't allow someone to Steal from a mob more than once. Thief's would be incredibly rich.

In other words; you can't, one successfull steal from ANYBODY and then the "steal pool" is now empty on the mob until it spawns again.
