I want everyone to know that this is my first time posting a message.
I'm 2/93 on JEJ, I advise you not to camp this NM unless you ( NEED ) the item.
Peacock charm works just as well , just without the +1 thf

I need help with the widescan and how to find the PH. I read the list down below and that does not match up anywhere on the list. There are four parts of WS tha looks just like it but, in every case, there is one monster that is misplaced. I nvr found JEJ so i cant figured it out. {Help me out!} {Please assist}. I was killing what looked like phs for a LONG time. dont ask me how long b/c it will make me cry.
Lucky Day

I logged out where he spawns the night before and when I logged in the Next day he popped right in front of me. I took pleasure in beating him with my Great Sword as a 17 War. Went down easy and got the Drop 1/1. It was my lucky day!

Ok, I havn't read EVERY post, a 'lil tired, and I just wanna ask....
A PT of 6 15+ or 45+ THFs make this drop any better? Logically it would but I would rather have confirmation from people who have actually done it. Thnx.
1 PH, always

Not True. JEJ has one placeholder:

Carrion Worm
Forest Hare
Forest Hare
Forest Hare <-- Placeholder
Forest Funguar
Scarab Beetle
Scarab Beetle
Wild Sheep x4

Verified by me. Other 2 Hares were alive and well, and JEJ spawned.

If you want to know the easiest way to get Jack, follow this post ^^

Most (if not all) NMs have one placeholder. The placeholder is mob from the same type of mob family as the NM, and shows up in the same position on widescan.
On JEJ for example, the PH is the 3rd Forest Hare on widescan between the Carrion Worm and Forest Fungar. The 2 Forest Hare's above, are not the PH, so you dont need to kill them. Forest Hare's have a spawn time of 5 minutes, so after you kill the PH, use a 5 minute ability such as {Sharpshot} to use as a timer.

However, if you don't have access to widescan, about all you can do is run around for hours killing all the forest hares in the area, which is pretty much a waste of time.

0/14 on this little bastid so far, I've done the Full Moon theory, the four-leaf mandragora bud theory, eating the four-leaf mandragora bud, killing it on a job under it's level...everything..nothing you can really do to heighten this drop. I'll get the drop..maybe :P

Edit 0/28 :(
Edit 1/32 As of a month ago now 1/42

um he does have a placeholder. and i finally got the drop so that makes me 1/283794234923492384923 on this lil bastich seriously about 1/48 on him.
details of drop
location: couple steps south by southeast across path from outpost.
first quarter moon 45%
about 10:08 vanadiel time

lvl 63thf/27rng

have the wild rarab tail and the 4 leaf mandy bud on me.

placeholder if i missed it in a previous post. is a set of 3 bunnies about 4 pg down's on widescan with a carrion worm right under them. when you check these bunnies the will all be inside the JeJ zone as well as the carrion worm. i play fenrir and it's not a very camped mob. i was able to deduce that by killing just the 3rd bunny he popped. but after finding it out i went back to killing all three.(safety sake) also i have had him respawn in as little as 35 minutes that's the fastest repop i was able to clock. oddly it was the time i was trying to find an exact PH for him forced a fast pop for him.
Lucky ^^

Over the past week ive been hunting quite a few nm's and this guy is next (mainly for the gil, 400k on the phoenix server)

im now:

1/1 VE
1/1 Stray Mary
1/5 LL
1/1 Chocoboleech (think this is a 100% drop anyway but, just thought id say id done it, dont know why i just found myself with a fresh blood so i thought heyho i might as well)

So any advice for campin JEJ would be much appreciated

# Dec 11 2006 at 9:32 AM Rating: Decent
i wonder is his spawn a random place or is it set in one spot

made sense

Grebfang is right btw.. i have farmed this at least 20 times and got 2 drops as a 75 thf
# Nov 10 2006 at 12:31 AM Rating: Decent


I think jhromada might be on something here, though I got the charm on my first kill as a 30ish RDM, but maybe that was just dumb luck, I dunno...all I know is I'm sick of this evil little bunny...
i know youll all hate me but...

I'm 1/1 on JEJ. But let me give u some valueable info, im am almost positive there is only 1 reason im 1/1 on this guy. I was lvl 7.

I heard from some guy claiming to be an EX-GM and what he told me about his job convinced me he was not lying. He was talkin to some programmer once and most drops work by your lvl compared to the mobs lvl.

JEJ is lvl 9-10, i was lvl 7, LOWER than JEJ's lvl. How did i kill him at lvl 7 u ask? I was lvl bst and i see him, claim him and b4 i die some passerby was generous enough to cure me! (nice man!) Anyways i kill it get drop.

If you notice, most of the people who say they are 1/1 on him, they were only passing by and they were relatively low lvl. So id say, the best way to do this would be to camp it with a lvl 6-10 job, and bring some PL with you. (preferably whm/rng or something of the like for Wide Scan). Im certain if u can get claim, your chances of drop will rise astronomically. i think im gonna try it out, please reply with any similar experiences.

Are you 1/1 on JEJ? what lvl were you?
i know youll all hate me but...

Witnessed a drop
# Oct 31 2006 at 9:16 AM Rating: Decent
I was lvling my thf so that I could do things like camp this and farm. Saw JEJ pop and was going to try to go after him. I stress try I was only a lvl 9 Thf. Didn't have full health and saw him get claimed by someone else. Wished them luck and watched the fight. After the fight the guy let out of a cheer. I examined him and say that he had just equiped the drop. I clapped for him and moved on. One of these days I will get him.

1/51. After nearly 3 and a half hours of killing rabbits, I told myself "20 more minutes and I'm done". Little ******* finally popped at a little past 2 AM, killed him, no drop. I don't know how these people are 1/2 or 1/12 on him, but I'm thinking of taking a long break from this stubborn rabbit, maybe level or something...

EDIT: To the poster who said "Don't bother without Widescan", why's that? I've beat Rangers to the claim several times, the spawn area isn't that large. You probably still have a 50/50 chance of getting claim, Widescan doesn't mean your screwed like it does when you're camping Mary.

caim n drop
# Oct 18 2006 at 3:25 AM Rating: Decent
N!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CE Finally got this bad boy! 1/12
OK I've been camping this S.O.B for bout a week.
Got the drop 24hrs prior to this post.

Tried the full moon theory post here, n it's BS!
Tried a 7-mob chain theory, n it's BS!

Only 3 things you need:
Rng for widescan (don't even bother w/out it)
THF45+ for TH2 (dunno if it really makes a difference?) I got it, so I use it!

Happy hunting

N!!!!!!!CE finally got this bad boy. 1/12
I've been camping him for bout a week, with various degrees of success.
I tried the full moon method, posted on here, 'n its BS!
Heard a theory but killing 7 mobs in a specific order, 'n its BS!
There is really only one thing to do: persivere.
I claimed him bout 24hrs prior to this post, with Thf49/Rng10.
Widescan is uber useful, dunno how much difference Th2 makes?

be bary bary quiet im huntin for wabbits

I really think you need to just get lucky when it comes to the drop on this rabbit. He is definatly stinggy with that charm im currently 0/20 on him but have learned how to camp him easily enough. respawn time is around 1 hour and can sometimes be longer. If you want to work on lu shang rod while you wait for respawn i would suggest knights well just south. Great for killin time and not just sitting around wondering how much you hate this NM. If you do not have widescan i would suggest other NM's for you there is to much traffic within that area to not be able to know at least ToD. only thing i can help you with if you dont have widesscan do wat i do with my drg/thf and just stand by the thf/rng wait for them to flee and just try and stay one step ahead of them/ :)

take care!! and good luck huntin :)

drg for life !!!!!!
Why does this always seem to happen...

Alright, out camping Jack, doing my thing, killing the hares for about an hour and a half when this RNG/THF comes outta nowhere and just stands perfectly still. I say "Hello." Nothing. I know these types by now; the hardcore NM campers. They never move, they don't help kill placeholders, they don't respond to anything, they just stand perfectly still spamming their Widescan. Quite possibly the most boring people in all of FFXI. Anyway, I'm killing rabbits, but stay close to the camper in case JEJ decides to pop by her. After about 40 mins, I see Jack pop RIGHT BEHIND HER. Running towards it, she turns around and gets claim. I /cheer for her as she takes it down in three stabs. I ask "Drop?". She responds with "No.". I say "Congratulations anyway, maybe next time", and she responds with "lol, you didn't get it". WTF? I proceed to slap her and make my way to town...I hate these kind of people. They camp the last 20 minutes after I've been killing Placeholders for 2 hours, they get claim and they act like asses. /sigh...I think this NM's getting to me.

Does the Moon Phase affect drop?
# Oct 14 2006 at 10:12 PM Rating: Decent
Camped for about 20 minutes, and saw a small bunny with a ridiculously long name off in the distance. Yep, that'd be Jack. Notice the THF behind me hit Flee, so I get my *** to the rabbit, provoke, kill him, no drop. 1/49 I think I'm at now. I just wanna re-confirm, this charm still drops right? Also, is that Full Moon rumor true? 'cause it sounds very far-fetched, but then again, the moon affects crafting and fishing so I guess it's possible it plays a factor in NM drops...
This bunny is Satan incarnate

The rabbit is pure evil. First time I heard about him was a few months after release. I was running through Ronfaure as a 30ish RDM when I saw him by the Outpost. Killed him in a few blows and got the Charm, which I sold for I think 1.5 mil, which was a crapload of money at the time (Leaping Boots were 250k). I quit for a while, and I returned a few months ago. Since then, I've killed him 45 times. Nothing. That's 1/46, my only drop being on the first kill by the Outpost...talk about strange. Anyway, I've developed a sort of vendetta against this rabbit. I maybe kill him twice to five times in a given month, but no drop still. I've got it down to a technique, running in the same figure-8 killing all the hares that spawn, usually to have the claim stolen by some guy who jsut showed up about 10 minutes ago, (such was the case about 20 minutes ago). I've heard it only drops on a Full Moon, but personally, I don't buy it. It just doesn't make any sense to me. To all those camping this little guy, good luck...
