gobby eating sushi?

Went down there and he was just up and roaming around.

Must of been a higher lvl spawn, because he did not miss me once (75nin/thf) even with Kurayami on. Only was able to parry a few times, but this gobby's accuracy was 100%.

Just a warning for soloers, bring medicine or a healer along because I don't know if this gobby can be soloed.

Killed 2 Mercenaries before he popped. Killed him last night as a 67 BST with a 66 BST to round out the duo. Was an easy fight because the raptor charms went surprisingly well. We didn't use any "tough" pets so mabye that's why. The crabs are nice stallers because there are so many but they don't provide much offense, as opposed to the raptors who deal most of the damage. He should not be solo'd as a BST around this lvl because you really need a pet to occupy while finding a new one...you probably know that. If you're above 67 BST and are confident in your raptor charming then it's doable. Our strategy was...

I charmed the raptor in the room with the ??? for the Sam WS quest. My partner pulled with a crab when the gob was away from link range on the "leave." If it had linked before the leave, no big deal. Just after is the problem. Which happened on our first shot at it. Led to death. We fought in the room with the ??? and in the hallway going up. Again, an easy fight with 2 BSTs as long as you're able to charm the raptors successfully. 0/1 on the axe though. Dropped everything else. Good luck!

Ok, so we've been camping this thing killing PHs for the past couple of nights. Last night, I DCed and just decided to go on to sleep. I got on after class this morning around 9:15 central and there's blood looking right at me. I tell my ls, and after asking a friend, I call and wake up my war friend we've been camping this for. Actually another member got him on the phone after I called b/c I was hoping a Japanese XP PT would get the bandit off me that had aggroed when I logged in. Anyway, gradually some of my ls mates showed up. However, they didn't arrive before a pld, nin, nin, and thf from a Japanese link showed up. Therefore, the drk and I that were already there (he had just arrived) decided to pull Blood and convince the Japanese that we had others very close by, thereby forcing them to fight before being prepared. (We also wanted to kite the mob, but a drk and brd kiting is kinda....weak.) Anyway, needless to say, we died. The Japanese had invisibled, therefor they did not receive aggro. However, they chose to pull the NM anyway.

For the first 3 or 4 minutes, they did an excellent job. However, the pld finally ran out of mp. A few gobbie bombs later and they wiped. However, right before wipe, a whm from a neareby Japanese exp party decided to toss in a Cure IV for good measure. Well of course he got aggro after the final nin's death.

The EXP party runs back to their "safe" area and begins to wipe. Gobbie bomb from this joker is hardcore. By this time, our group of 6 (pld, brd, drk, thf, war, whm) is ready to do some damage. Howver, a rdm/nin gets the claim from the wiping party. Luckily for us, and through some kind words and requests, this rdm/nin @ 10% health left on the gobbie allowed us to invite him (we were set in alliance formation in case others showed up).

To wrap up, our war got a lovely new axe to use in his SP.
Mr. Gobbie NM,...where are you???

- Round One: Up til 3am camping this Gob. Our party camped him for 6 hours. He never showed up.
*Shouts back into the cave before being warped* "I will be back for you Gobbie, and you will Die...." lol
-- Party set-up: 70+ War, Rdm & Blm and a 64 Thf, 66 Rdm, 66PLD

- Round Two: Popped under 1 hour and left me hanging. No drop. =(
-- Party Set-up: 70+ War, Rdm & Blm again. With 66 Rdm and the 64 Thf(was afk during fight)

- Round Three: Dropped
-- Basic overkill scenario. 70+ War x2, Rdm & Blm again. 66+ Pld, Rdm & Thf. We had just finished a ZM12 fight for the Pld and decided to drop in and take a peak.

Note: A linkshell member of mine didn't get his drop until his 12th attempt.

Took him down in EXP party

Heh. We took this NM down 3 nights ago in a lvl 59-60 exp party. :P


It was funny, it was my first fight with this party.. I had just replaced another WHM that needed to leave only to be welcomed by this NM... little did I know.. this party took it down with ease. No drop though.

We proceeded to get 7k/hour exp over the period of 2 hours. It was probably the best party I've ever been in with my WHM.

I got my axe 1/1 fighting him, the fight was really easy the only hard part was the patience waiting for him to pop. My LSmates and I had actually left our camp to go get a coffer for one of them when the RNG shouted "He's up let's go!" so I called in my 75WAR/NIN buddy and along with my LSmates 75BLM 75RNG 75WHM we proceeded to beat the tar outta Bloodthirster with no problems whatsoever, and the axe dropped YAY! Happy Hunting!
Another NM Down

Took this gob down yesterday with my linkshell, fairly easy fight for us. Not many people camp Bloodthirster cuz the axe is rare/ex so its only a matter of time killing the placeholders til he pops. I can't really give any suggestions or battle stategy, because we just out muscled him. 75 mnk, 74 Pld, 73 War/nin, 73 Blm/whm, 70 Thf/nin, 68 Thf/nin, and myself 67 War/nin. I got the drop (im sure the 2 TH2's helped) TOD around 6pm est. BTW then we owned Sewer Syrup and got the Jelly Ring for the Pld. WE ROCK!

This guy makes me mad, I am currently 0/5 for the axe. ; ;
# Jul 17 2005 at 6:41 AM Rating: Decent
He pops in M-8>M-9.

Was a difficult fight as a BST. Also had to keep him out of gilsellers view to keep claim -.- idiots..

Mighty Strikes almost got me. Almost. But otherwise he was fairly easy.

No drop.. /sigh

Pop location is:


Click Kuftal Tunnel
Click Notorius Monsters at the Bottom
His little area is highlighted on the right side of the map, to the right of Amemet's pop area.

0/3 on this dude. And each time I've had to bribe different people to help me.
73NIN has hard time tanking without Haste on this guy. Recommended two blink tanks or stunners, or both. Damage Dealing is optional, as with two blink tanks atleast 70+ the DMG will be enough if you just outlast it. Only had TH once when I camped it, this drop needs to be 100% :\

112 experience with a pet. I used nothing stronger than EM to kill it so that should tell you the level if you want to figure it out. 0/2 on the axe now.

Level 68 at the time

I needed this axe and yesterday me and a WAR LS buddy wanted some skil up we went their with a LS skill up pt and camp the NM the same time ( 1 DRK , 1 War , 1 RDM , 1 WHM vary from 71-75)

After 1 hour of killing ph's it popped and since everybody was /nin sub for skill up we had little hope of the axe dropping but it did.

Anyway i passed so the war could get it but id like one for my Drk/nin so ill keep you posted about pop times.

I've been trying to get this axe for over a week now, every day trying to visit my little friend Madkix.

I just want to say that the reports of the pop times are very inaccurate. I've spent most of my time trying to figure out how the hell to pop this mob because it is definitely not a 2hr lottery pop.

Here are some random facts:

- killing only the merc my first time, it took me 4.5 hours to pop it.

- a friend killed everything in the area using the scorp pet, including the raptors and after 7 hours he went to get dinner and had a friend come stay at the spawn to make sure no one claimed it. He came back an hour later and camped again for a few hours, totalling 12 hours, and still no spawn.

- the other day I went there and camped for 6 hours, killing every goblin in the area (ignoring raptors) and it never spawned.

- I went back later and a bunch of 70+ people came to help for fun and after 3.5 hours, it never spawned.

- Since then I've been going to test the optimistic comment from melbolt about only having to kill its merc once theory almost every day and it still hasn't spawned.

- Two days ago I saw it die at 3:30am but then I zoned into Kuftal 10 hours later at 1:30pm my time and it was sitting there spawned, unclaimed, with no one around. So it's at least possible that it spawns during that timeframe and therefore is not a 24 or 16 hour window lotto, maybe not even exactly 12.

I'm rambling but as you can see, survey says it's not a 2hr lotto. I was trying to figure out if there was some pop tricks to it that weren't obvious. Sometimes two bandits spawn in there. Sometimes a Merc spawns in the raptor room near the ramp to the upper area. Sometimes a Raptor spawns in that tunnel too. I was hoping to find some weirdo combination like, "if all mercs are dead, he will spawn" or something along those lines, but I haven't been successful yet.

Of course, I know which one the supposed placeholder is, having seen it spawn in that little room for a total of 4 times now (once was from an exp PT that was clearing the area and then I died trying to charm an Ovinnik before I could get to it >.>).

Anyway, as for the fight, I had originally tried as BST67+WHM66, using only crabs. This strategy sucked. He hits too damn hard and it takes a ton of crabs to kill him because they're all so weak.

Last time, I had hit 68 by then and was able to maintain a good hold on the Scorpion. Boy was this easier. :) I used the Scorp as much as it could, so when it would get to about 10% HP, Leave it, let it heal and then stall the NM with a crab while the scorp heals. For me, one crab was enough for the scorp to mostly heal up.

One caveat about using crabs should you choose to do so is that Sneak will take hate from them because they are so weak. Yes, that's right, every time you cast Sneak near him you will probably get hate. Just do it far enough away so that the crab can hit him again before he gets to you and removes your sneak. Bring silent oils for the extra-paranoid, but I'm not sure how much hate they generate relative to the spell itself. I took hate from a crab one time eating a Tavnazian Taco too.

Anyway, I'm 0/2 on actual kills now and still trying to get this axe. Very frustrating. Good luck to you all and don't be surprised if you are trying to spawn it for a VERY long time.

Camped him for about 5~ hours last Saturday, and from prior camping of "lotto" NM's, I'd say he behaves like one in the pattern he pops.

Example: Enkalados is a Lotto pop.

Enkalados popped for a buddy of mine 3 times in 1 hour. This was directly after maintenance of course but he still popped 3 times in 60 mins.

The Goblins in that room repop every 15 mins. I established an order of killing each mob in the immeadiate area one after the other and noticed that even the gobs are lottos but the WAR Gob will always pop during this. Sometimes they would pop THF > WHM > WAR | THF > BST > WAR | WAR > BST > WHM w/e and it was somewhat random.

Anyway, he has a chance of popping within that string of Goblin repops, it's not a guaranteed thing that he'll pop. By this logic he can theoretically pop again as soon as 15 mins after you kill him, but that occurence is so terribly rare I think I'd have a seizure on the off chance I was there 15 mins after killing him, unless I didn't get the drop.

As I noted I didn't camp him for more than 5 hours and he popped, I almost duo'd him as 73NIN with a 58WHM healing me but I underestimated his ability to eat my shadows with +50 Evasion and 259 Evasion skill =.= and we died. I did, however, get him down to 25-30% with only me hitting him by spamming 100%TP WS and slowly eating him away. I'm gonna recamp him this weekend with a RDM75 along for the ride, hopefully get lucky and walk away with the Axe so I can fully retire NIN to be career WAR again.

On a side note, this guy is defenitely easier than Alkyoneus, that sad gigas only ever hit me with his TP move that went thru shadows nailing me for 150~ each time.

rare drop

I duoed this 3 times so far while trying to get the axe.

2 bsts can kill it at around 64, it's possible to solo if you're careful but can be risky without so many aggro's around.

I'm 0 for 3 on this guy, he drops everything except for the axe.

a bst i know killed it 4 times before finally getting the drop, seems like he drops about 1 in 4 kills or so.

it's not a hard mob to get though, is poppable every 2-3 hours just by killing the goblin mercenary in that room. usually pops after the first mercenary is killed since nobody camps it.

This mob is level 69.

My lv.67 static fought this when it popped as we cleared the room. We got EXP chain 4 and 88 EXP from him.

This means, to us, his base EXP is 56 according to Chain Bonus Table, and so that puts him 2 levels above us.

He's no harder than Cancer, but he does have a lot of health and uses Mighty Strikes. He's also a big gob compared to the others in the room.

Based on all your accounts, that simply means his level shifts from 69-72 like most NM's.

This is a level 70 mob. I'm a 69 BST and I killed it with a pet and it gave me 89 EXP.

I killed him at BST68 and got 168xp with pet, which puts him at level 72. So it seems that he can be 69-72.

While running around in a squirrelly manner looking for a coffer for the map, I ran into this bad boy. Luckily for me, he didn't see me and I managed to beat a hasty retreat.

He spawned in L-6 of Kuftal, in a little end of a tunnel with about four or five other gobs (that checked IT to my 58). If anyone's interested, I ran into him at about 7:45 PST

i got axe

fought him today and was lucky to get the axe.

this was my 2nd time fighting it. i was 72 bst, and had a party of 66blm, 66rdm, 66thf, 66pld(subbed bst for skill up pt) and 59drg.

we were there for the coffer for our friends af3 drg quest. and were fighting spiders to drop the rare/ex item for the last Star onion brigade quest. while i was looking on widescan i noticed he popped.

he spawns in the little room on the right side. if you look at the map where amemet spawns (the big room of lizards and crabs) there is a room that is directly to the right of it, but you have to go up north up the few stairs past the scorpion, then take a right.

as of the fight, he is pretty tough. my 66pld/33bst teammate and i were charming crabs to fight it and i was using the lone scorpion too. when it hits around half-life it will use it's 2 hour of mighty strikes. it was hitting the scorpion for over 250+ criticals and he does have double attack since i'm guessing the goblin mercenary's are placeholders.

i was fortunate to get the axe and i like it so far. it's not the greatest axe, it's meant for more damage dealing (since -agi -vit) but if you look at it, most of the axes at that level are fairly expensive (500k+). not to mention the axe is blue ^^.

i'm really not to sure about respawn time since when i was able to get the NM, there was a pt leveling down there off of raptors and assuming goblins. however they didn't feel like pulling this NM.

so yeah, 2 times fought, and i got the axe. i know another bst friend of mine fought him at least 6+ times and never received the axe.

NOTE: since 66thf was in pt we did have treasure hunter 2 and i had my food effect on still (i had eaten a lucky egg while we fought amemet about 45 mins before hand). assuming lucky egg gives treasure hunter 1....
