i recommend to start fighting these mandys at lvl 28. You can beat them at lvl 25+, but the chains won't be there so in a broader scope, it's not worth it.

Hey, does anyone know the drop rate on Humus for these guys? I was looking to farm it, since there arent very many on the AH at any given time.

Anyone know what level these guys will skill your parry up to? They're attractive because they attack 2x as much as other monsters.
good exp

When i was a lvl 28 whm i got an invite to a possibly the greatest party I have ever had(the roster was: rng, blm, whm, whm, pld, drg). Drg and pld shared hate, the other whm would heal and i would cast regen on the tank/backup tank/puller. When the blm left we couldnt find a replacement that wasn't taken already so we fought the same mobs with just 5 people and the end result was the same(but this time with more exp). Throughout this whole time not one party member's hp went past 50%. Everyone lvled at least once. I went from being lvl 28 to lvl 31 in no time at all.

These guys may be easy, but dont do anything stupid. Whats stupid? Having a party attack one wth 4 members, rdm healer, and just Nin/war, blm/wm, rdm/war, adn thf/nin.......

We made it, but didn't try again...

first time i came to this place as white mage, the overcampage was so severe i really didnt see any improvement in the experience since qufim(both yhoator and yuhtunga mandies), especially considering gobs are zoned every 30 seconds. Decent experience but not worth the keys i thought. Later on, I came back with my ranger.....whole different story. The party was composed of NIN, NIN, RNG, MNK, WHM, BRD. I(the RNG) would pull a mandy, 2 if there were 2 unclaimed(utsusemi saved me from taking too much damage ^^) and the bard would sleep the extra if i got 2. In the case of T or VTs it would just be they attack i go pull another one or 2. We kept the extras slept to control claim ^^ Yea it was a bit greedy but it was damn good exp! The bard was a galka, so he could take hits for a bit if they woke up with no serious problems, much better then my first experience here ^^

My first time there was this past wknd and it was like Grand Central Station at rush hour! Wall-to-wall players! It seemed every inch of the place was camped.
BTW...can one actually walk out of this place alive at the end of a pt? I don't want to have to p/u a scroll of Instant Warp every time I pt. I'll run out of CP's! LOL

A tip for summoners: I've found at level 28 that the best blood pact against these guys was Still Thunderspark.

Don't worry so much about the AoE aspect... I discovered happily that even if you hit a white lizard with the thunderspark, they seem to only develop hate for Ramuh and not you. As long as you release Ramuh fairly quickly after thunderspark ignites, the lizard doesn't aggro the party.

Estimates for amount of EXP per flower in a 6-person party, not counting chaining:

Levels 27-29: 200 EXP
Level 30: 150-200 EXP
Level 31: 90-160 EXP
Level 32: 80-120 EXP
Level 33: <80 EXP

At no point do they present much of a challenge to a good party. At about level 31, it becomes possible to fight two of them at once, given good healers.

but damn do they have a high agility rating.

If someone tells you these are "pretty good exp" at level 27, that is bs, the truth is these are GDF Great exp, probably the best you have ever seen, level 1 has nothing on these. I swear, the only reason you won't break down and cry after this paradise is because you were up till dawn and just passed out after you logged. If you are fighting gobs I pity you.

Update: This was made a long time ago when I was thf, since then I have returned with dark, Yhoatar is now horrible as there is not enough spawns and space for all the people. It is very sad...

Esp. nice mob for partying. Cons far higher than it hits. (T-VT hit for about 10-20x2 per round)Note that they're camped pretty severely for the same reason.
27-32 in party
