Duoed these as 74pld/rdm and 71sam/thf.

Easy kills, we actually unlocked sams G-katana while doing this. Sam just TA wsed onto me and enemies rarely got through stoneskin. Good camp is H-10 just before you enter the circle area in the "K" tunnel. Can pull one dodo around the scorp, another after u kill 2 gobs in the way. Then move around corener to kill 2 more dodos. All these camps are out of magic aggro, so it worked well.
better spot?

is there a better camp than the one last posted? I'm there now soloing as pld/nin and it is slow and tough, I have to clear 2 bombs before even thinking about the dodos... and if its a high level dodo they take a long time to kill, bringing the danger of bomb repops ^^;;

all the guides I've seen on O-hats have said that these things are near the entrance and easy to find. That's kind of vague, especially since this is probably the most dangerous zone in the game with the abundance of sight, sound, and magic aggro mobs.


they're on the second map from the bottom and in the tunnels connected to the "K" entrance. Just in case the atlas goes down, use the G-6 entrance from Yhoatar, go to H-8 (it will take you to a different map) and the Dodomeki will be in that tunnel and the tunnel that goes off to the right.

Sadly, these things are not isolated. I soloed or duoed all the other eyes (except the million eyes) but duoing these was tough. The dodomeki aren't that hard, but the scorpions go up to 73, bombs aggro to magic and blow up (did 1200 damage to a 73 mnk), and there's no safe place to pull them without aggroing other things.

lol, me and a friend went to Ifrit's Cauldron to goof off and try mining. I'm DRG75/RDM37 and my friend was RDM65/BLM32. Killed 4 of these and got 2 Damp Hakutaku eyes in a row. Made me feel bad after seeing the posts about people killing these forever for one eye ><.
Lucky one.

Wow, those one are not fun.... i try Solo one with my THF75.

He cast Burst 3 time on me + 2x BIO III.. Thanks god Utsusemi evade that.. >< 'Death Ray' not fun, he did that 3 time for 270~320 dmg each.

He Almost got me with Poisonga II /fume. >< i survive by 2HP ( no Antidote ) i'm damn lucky bc i Aggro a BAT + Bomb @ 2HP >< i run to Flame and for some reason, i lost Bomb Gaz.. and a SMN took the Bat. i cast Tonko fast befor Bomb aggro me back, and run to exit safe.

Lucky Dodomeki are almost unable hit me [279 Eva], he could take me down fast, have no idea how strong he hit on normal attk.

Well conclusion.. Never go there alone as Mele >< RDM75/NIN can solo that for sure, its very weak, only strong magic. should not be a probleme @ all for RDM.

Oh by the way: Dodomeki is EP~DC to me. The one i kill was EP Low Eva. and give 42 Exp. Diplopod is 68~71 EP~DC too. So guess the Level of Dodomeki.

I spent 4 hours yesterday (with a RDM75 partner) killing these and the bombs around them. The results?

3 Coffer Keys
3 Bomb Queen Ash
2 1/2 stack of Bomb Ash
1 stack of Bomb Arms
0 Damp Hakutaku Eyes

This is with TH2! Honestly..../sigh.

That is almost impossible. Only an error would do that.

it is possible. dont forget the mob has different lv ranges. a lv 63 would con even to a 70 and a 69 would be impossble to gauge to a lv 69 player
RE: solo
# May 10 2005 at 12:47 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, a level 63 mob would be easy prey to a level 70 player. And also a level 69 mob would be even match to a level 69 player, hence the even match.

lately I have had quite a few mobs mis-con to me (IT that give 100 exp to a full pt, or a tough that gives 200)... So it wouldn't suprise me if that happened:)
