First Time's a Charm

Jesus bloody Christ... I can't believe it.

Camped JEJ after maintenance, competing with three other people. Spotted him on my widescan and 'flee'ed to where he was. Unfortunatey, without provoke, I was limited to steal/boomerang/normal engage to claim him... so I was severely put out when a level 18 MNK/WAR claimed him from under my nose. She didn't get the drop.

So I decided to go help my sister camp Tumbling Truffle in La Thiene since she wanted the Fungus Hat. An hour or so later, it pops, I claim it, my sister kills it, and the hat drops. ^^

I thought that was it. No chance of getting Rabbit Charm tonight if I've already had one NM drop.

But I go back anyway and idly stand around, checking wide scan occasionally, but mostly messing with people's minds by undressing and wearing level 1 gear. Then JEJ pops into the wide scanner and I cheese it towards him. My rival this time is a 30 WAR, who naturally has the edge on claiming, but I have the speed and the wide scan. I used my ranged attack this time and claimed him JUST before the Warrior tried to provoke it.

Fought it.

Got the Rabbit Charm.

I think I nearly had a heart failure. I must have stood there stupidly for five minutes, until I realised I needed to clear room for the damn charm. >.< Nearly lost it.

But after careful deliberation, I think I'll keep it rather than sell it. I'm sure I'll be gagging for this necklace when I go up against Maat.

1/1 Jaggedy-Eared Jack.

I was on my way to sandy, then I decided to have a look at the place, and there was no one camping it. I killed all the rabbits around (8~10) and rested my hp (note I was 15thf/7war), and when they re-spawned, I got JEJ in my nose, so I smashed him, w/o trouble, but no drop :S
Wasn't foggy, it was as clear as a glass of water.
how it spawns

how does it spawn?

Kill all the forest hares in the spawn area.

The hares are Jaggedy's place holder.

Currently 1/7 on Charm, sold for 700k on Odin

Last night I was running through ronfaure as a bard and someone asked me for some buffs. He spawned and he said "Omg its incredibly tough, please help me!" Sooo obviously he was kind of new. I said lets go fight it, doing this just for fun considering drop rate is so low didnt think id get it the drop but, bam!! We got drop, and I got it obviously :P Fun fun, putting it on AH takes more money then id like to give up so, waiting for it to bought out of my bazaar.

I am 1/3 so far on this - got the drop on the second one and was able to buy my emp hairpin. I was excited and he seems to pop in the same general area. I had my last account hacked so this new one for having a lvl 25 thf/war camping and lvl 16 for the first time i campped isnt bad. nice and quiet and you get the occational passer by that checks to see if its there but because you are camping you know you will get it first. beat a chocobo rider at it.
it was fun, now to go for leaping lizzie for my boots. :3

is there a spot that he spawns at more frequently?

0/12, which from what I've read, isn't too bad so far. My LS mates keep running into him by chance and getting the drop on the first or second kill (happened 2x times now), but still no luck for me. Up to 1.2 mil on Bismarck last time I checked. Not sure yet what I will do if/when I get it; save for my thf, or sell to help fund PLD and RNG.

1/14 now ^^
# Jun 02 2005 at 9:39 AM Rating: Decent
i camped him when i was lvl 20 for a while , i was 0/58 on him , then i bought it for 400k ( now worth 2,000,000G on fairy)

was running through on a choco and saw him unclaimed
hopped off and Ranged attacked him 1 hit he died , dropped charm so now im 1/59

NOT worth it at all the charm sucks its just a pice to say you have, only thing this is good for when stacking steal for Maat fight at lvl 70 for a thief

I swear I almost chased a rabbit down the street the other day with a stick. Jack has compelled this rather large homicidal urge towards rabbits to grow within me.

I am 0/16 on that charm. At first I was going to sell it if I'd gotten the drop. But then I started leveling thief in order to GET the stupid drop, so now I'm hooked on thief and now I simply want the charm so I won't feel like such a gibbled thief. ._.

I hate this rabbit. ><

i've been hunting Jack on and off for the past few weeks. i've killed him five times with no charm drop, only rabbit hides. i figured i'd wait until i was level 15 theif so i'd have treasure hunter, but still no charm. i've noticed that if you run around and kill all of the hares you can find in that particular area, Jack does pop pretty regularly every hour... and in the same general area. if you kill all the hares in G-9 and H-9 and check this spot ( http://www.myfilestash.com/userfiles/random66/ronfaure-west.jpg ) every so often, you're bound to see Jack. i'm getting sick of hunting that wascawy wabbit, although a dozen rabbit hides sell for 3000g in sandy so it still a decent way to make some cash while hunting the NM.

Just to let you all know before the other day i was 0/4 on Jack. Well here we go i log on to go level my 14nin/war and as im running down to valkurm from sandy i decide to go check if Jack is there like i always do when i run by. Sure enough there he is nobody around him. I voke and proceed to kick the crap outta him...Utsusemi i love you...after i kill him theres a huge pause due to lag...then i get it...You find a Rabbit Charm on Jaggedy-Eared Jack...now after i finish prancing around my house like a girl...i proceed to inform the LS...i guess the whole point of this post is that you don't need thief to get the charm...its all based on pure luck. So if any of you are on Titan looking to buy send me a /tell Tslehi and i will hook you up. Now officially 1/5 on Jack and the luckiest person alive...if anyone needs help campin him or lizzy...my two favorites ;) let me know and if im not busy ill help you... good luck to all campers everywhere!
I hate this little bastard

and most NM's. You spend COUNTLESS hours waiting just for them to pop...and if you happen to beat people to the pop...you probably won't get the item...rinse and repeat. I am 0-49 on JEJ(camped alot more than that.) been "easier" lately as people have given up. I want the item for my THF and I refuse to buy it...this is an INSANELY hard drop.

I do have some advice tho, when killing rabbits(make them PAY), use Ranged Attack, don't engage them, if you happen to see JEJ it's easier to just run and stop the shot than to disengage the mob, yes only a matter of a second or two...but it's a big second or two. Good luck and please someone prove me wrong...I doubt the item drops anymore.

Try to grow ores, it's less stressful and better results

I have grabbed this little guy at least half a dozen times, no drops at all but he does seem to pop ever 3-4 hours and it does for at least me seem like he only pops on foggy days.

Same here, past 2 days been camping the rabbit, Using RNG/War. Pop times are long... first time I sat for about 4 hours before it popped and lost it to a lvl 11 Pld(waste of a night). The time when I did not get the pop and the times I did get the pop, it did seem to be Foggy or at least Hazy. No Drop.. I will still try until I at least get one drop.

I've camped this lil' bugger many a time and still no drop ><
im 0/13 but im keeping at it. ive tried most the theories such as: darksday, fog, killing the bomb, using a low level, have sum1 cure you as u fight and NOTHING!! but im sure if im pesistant ill get it.
rng wud be helpful for this NM but honestly, u dont really need it. Most the time as u run through the area you will see his name fill across your screen and as of yet, no1 has stolen him from me. I saw a bst constantly charming mobs and running from JEJ i /followed him and /cheered him on (cute lil taru!! ^^) unfortunately he died. i killed tha damn wabbit but agen no drop! IMO...best thing to do is get a friend to wait at the spawn spot whilst u go kill wabbits and switch places every so often

Well, Thursday of last week I decided to start up Leathercrafting but didn't wanna buy all my Rabbit Hides (overpriced pieces of crap) so I decide to go farm some. Well where should I farm them? Why not where's theres a chance I get an 800k drop? ^_^

So, I outpost warp from Bastok over to Ronfaure (Thank you Bastok) and I start up killing rabbits. 2 hours of killing, got like 10 stacks of rabbit hides, no one else even trying to camp him, music jamming, I was having myself a pretty good time. I get him on Widescan after about 2 hours 15 minutes, flee over, smoke his little butt. No drop but that wasn't why I was there. Oh well.

Today, figured I should go back and get enough hides to get up to 7 in Leathercraft. I get there and there's already a lvl 45 Thief running around? I ask if I help her camp NM if I can have all the hides she gets, she agrees so were off. Her, her 2 friends and I are slaughtering rabbits for a good hour. Little thing spawns right in front of me. I claim it call everyone over. Whack the thing good. No drop once again ( /cry ) but I got 7 more stacks outta the deal. So I'm done camping this little demon bunny. His drop must be pretty bad. 2 Thiefs with TH2... a War/Thf with TH... and 51 Whm... still no drop. OH well.

Good luck to anyone who really wants the charm.

I've just started playing and thought I'd try and kill my first NM, campped Bigmouth Billy this morning before work for about an hour and a half, and couldn't find him.

Came in from work, started up and he's right in front of me. Killed him then headed to West Ron to hunt JEJ, walked in killed 1 rabbit, target the next and it was JEJ. Unfortunately didn't get the drop, but gonna keep trying

Well I was out doing the armor quest in South Sandoria, I've camped Jack 3 times prior even him and those attempts took on average 3 or more hours for a claim on him, it'd have been only a few minutes when started in on an armor mob when I see Jack right in front of me, not a thing i can do :(, it took nearly 5 minutes before another camper took him. Yeah, so and then. It happens

I've killed him 3 times still no drop. Does seem to spawn about every hour or so if all the Forest Hare's between the outpost and the eastern mountain. For me he seemed to spawn more frequently between the eastern opening.
