lol thieves aren't bad at soloing
i solo these as a lvl 30THF/15NIN
i don't even use utsu
just SA them and they lose like 30% HP
save up TP and SA fast blade them for insta kill

Good luck using Sneak Attack while fighting an enemy head-to-head!!

Drop rate
# Aug 08 2006 at 12:14 AM Rating: Decent
Can't say if the drop rate is any better on those than the ones in Sarutabaruta, but you'll defnitely see a lot more of those in Pashow, usually grouping in groups of 2 or 3. A bit further of the waters ponds than leeches. A lot of people don't bother with those also, so you can grab a few while running from a pond to an other.

A can't miss mob to hunt while waiting for leeches, good to ease out the frustation and they're a lot less camped than the ones in Sarutabaruta too. But if the money is good enough, well it would depend of the person in question, but those drop usually faster than beastman blood itself, probably since you'll be killing lots more crawlers than leeches. Well they certainly won't pose a thread to anyone over level 40, also depend of your level and willingless to run.

Levels really matter?

I've been farming silk in saru for a while now (probably like 6 months on and off). i am lvl 36 thf. is it true that i will get more drops of silk if i close level gap and fight carniverous crawlers in pashow? i usually make about 3 stacks in 4 hours or so but i seem to remember getting so many more when i was lvling thf here at 1-10. i just need confirmation of this from a reputable source, because i dont want to go out there and wast more time cause killing them is harder for the same drop rate.

ok just saw this in THF forums... http://ffo.warcry.com/scripts/columns/view_sectionalt.phtml?site=21&id=306&colid=3834
it is supposedly from SE and states that levels have nothing to do with drop rates!!! i hope sooo!

silk drops

i would just farm the ones in either tahrongi canyon or saru. I dont think the silk drop rate differs to much but even an average level char can kill a saru crawler in one hit easily while these may take several hits. Just my 2 cents about the silk drops. Plus in saru you may get a shot at spini spipi every once and while. Mist Silk Cape is going for 80k on Lakshmi.

I have farmed the Beastmen Blood and Silks here numerous times. All the time, I am a 50ish Pld/War. In an hour, I can get from 4-6 Silks and about 3-4 Bloods.

Steal unsucsessful??
# May 21 2004 at 11:40 AM Rating: Default
weird,, ive had this game since november'03 and have ben trying to steal on these guys since then,, but ive never,, "NEVER" ben able to steal silk,, so i assumed that it wasnt possible to steal frome these guys,, now i read this.. il give it a try again
RE: Steal unsucsessful??
# Oct 13 2004 at 10:12 AM Rating: Decent
I can echo the 'If you're in Pashow Meadows, don't waste a steal on these guys. They ain't got it.' None of my steal attempts netted a silk thread. I'm going to go further.. I didn't get a single drop from these stingy crawlers. Bah! I'll save my steals for the silver beastcoins.

i've been able to steal silk threads from the crawlers in sarutabaruta.. so if you're not getting any at all, then maybe you're just an extemely unlucky thief..
perhaps a career change is in order....

edit: a typo

I personally dont steal from them, I just make a big train along the coast of Buburimu then cast Dia II, Banisha II, Blizzaga. Out of 20 or so crawlers i may get 3 Silk Threads, the spawn time is quick.

In all my time in Pashow, I haven't been able to steal a silk off of one there. I have, however, been able to in Maze.
# May 03 2004 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
These are the crawlers you always hear about Thieve's stealing silk from. I couldn't believe my eyes. Was omw to check on Leech King and I decided to steal from one and BANG...Silk thread. Not anything to be overly excited about but I suppose 35+ THF could farm here pretty easily w/ Steal and of course the drops.

This is called a "Carnivorous" Crawler. :) Simple typo.
