"Dai Hannya Nagamitsu" was the nickname of Ashikaga ********* (13th Ashikaga shogun)'s sword, Kokuho, which was passed as an honorific gift amongst the great rulers of feudal Japan, including Oda Nobunaga. The Dai Hannya is currently considered a national treasure of Japan, just like the uber-expensive Koryukagemitsu, the original Ghost in the Shell manga, and Yatta.

This pedantic little backstory, and the STR +3, makes the 300k I dropped on this puppy last week seem a bit more worthwhile... heh.
Keeper of Halidom

I am 0/23 on this mob. I have seen it drop before. So i do know it does drop. However, the drop rate on this is terr1ble. So, yes you are better off just buying it.

I'm starting to believe Keeper of Halidom doesn't even drop this as i am 0/241 on him, if you have a fraps screenshot of it actually dropping, i'd love to see proof. This guy sux. -.-' Cry-cry, whine-whine, i'm done.

I'm starting to believe this as well. Killed him dunno how many times in my early thf years and never seen it drop nor have heard anyone say they got the drop from him.

I do know that Sam fight Ancient Goobbue for the same G.Katana.......Hmmm.... I've yet to see any Named Weapon/Armor like this drop from more than one mob.

So it has to be some old urban legend that it drops from Keeper, never was true but always stipulated.

idea of how to get a better drop rate

yes, this drop rate does suck ***, but im sure it has something to do with the moonphase. The reason i think this is because the moonphase has to be just right to get the tree cuttings from regular goobbue. Ive been farming tree cuttings for awhile and when the moon is in a certain phase (example: waxing crescent) the drop rates are freaking terrible!! I can go up to killing like 6-7 Goobbue Gardeners in a row without getting a drop during those times. Im 0/2 so far on the Keeper of Halidom, and im hoping this next one will give the damn GK!! Im using RDM70/THF33 and camping this thing right as i write this. Its just basically when you kill it!!! Experiment with it if your farming tree cuttings.

0/2, both times gotten two mosses and a cutting. Seems like that's the pity prize you get if the GKatana doesn't drop.
Funny Story

Just fought him as 61THF (Marksmanship 40 under cap) with a 68PLD friend last night. He almost killed me, due to my lack of Scorpion Harness.

We were farming cuttings, and as I was fighting a gardener, my friend flashed the Keeper. He was low on mp, so he helped me kill the gardener. The keeper went unclaimed when a RNG showed up and hopped off his choco and started a RA on the keeper. My friend turned back and reclaimed him, and i Cycloned to kill my gardener, ensure the claim, and get hate onto me. He healed, I got utsusemi off and tanked for a while. He is very hard as 61THF with no SH, btw, hitting me for 90-150 every hit. I'm sure if i capped my marks, it would have went a little smoother. We whittled him down and finally killed him, with 5 or 6 people watching us, probably waiting for us to die.

No GK, but a cutting and 2 moss, so w/e...

Just killed him as 60THF/30NIN, He never got a hit on me..

My gear:

Lust Dagger
Acid baselard
Emperess Hairpin
Rogue Armlet's
Rogue Culotte
Rogue Poulaines
Life belt
Nomads Mantle
Fluorite Ring x2
Drone Earring x2
Power Crossbow
Sleepbolts x18 (I used one to claim, the rest I still have.)

Just killed this bad boy...No drop.

2 Mosses 1 Cutting. I farmed goobs the hole time solo. He's not really camped I guess because he's a very hard fight. He dropped my shadows a few times and decked me for about 100 damage as a 68THF/NIN
it was like 1 hit from dying..

Very rare :(
# Jun 11 2005 at 1:31 PM Rating: Decent
SO, on Keeper of Halidom this drop is extremely rare. The chances are you'll get enough money to buy it from killing Goobbues while you wait before it drops ^^;
# May 18 2005 at 3:58 PM Rating: Decent
never seen it drop on keeper, killed aincient gobbue last night and it dropped^^

I was farming for tree cuttings for the first time. I found that little area off the map with about 4 goobbue spawns, as RDM59/THF15 I probably could have soloed him if I had brought some echo drops. Had him under half life and I hadn't converted, still had 2hr. lol, I didn't know it was an NM till i read the log "Sylvr starts casting Paralyze on The Keeper of Holidom. I just saw the name pop up and was like "Who is fighting the NM and how did I miss it?" then I realize, wait a minute, I am...... so the fight was going well, then he used Antiphase, "Sylvr is silenced." Game over, so I'm laying on the ground dead trying to /tell a high lvl WHM I know when a lvl 73 PLD who logged there pops in, kills the thing in about 5 mins, I got a raise1 >.<; but whatever, it was fun and I learned that I almost soloed a mob thats probably higher than me, a real feat at that lvl.
Character: Sylvr
Server: Diabolos
Jobs: 75RDM/75PLD/75BLU, 227 Merits

"I would even go so far as to say the best RDMs and BRDs are completely unnoticed in their parties. After all, when a support class is noticed, it is typically when they miss something, and are being spammed/yelled at because of it. This type of job holds little appeal for those who want recognition."

My heart goes out to you on this one. {/comfort}
I guess if i ever run into this NM as my 55RNG, I'll be runing away from him.

For the curious, 'daihannya' literally means 'great ogre'. I believe 'hannya' refers specifically to a type of female ogre, though. ;P
fought NM
# Nov 22 2004 at 1:12 AM Rating: Decent

# Nov 13 2004 at 7:44 AM Rating: Default
