From what people are saying about the drop rate, it doesn't sound that bad. I'm a 16/8 BST/WHM and when I get 17, this would help so much with charming.
OMG.....someone camp something else

This bird is the most camped NM on the Bahamut server. took me 2 days just to get a claim and i always had 4-5 ppl camping it also (for the 80k on the AH....not for the staff). if ur a damn lvl 75 THF....why not camp something tougher for better money?

Had no trouble killing Hoo Mj...(aka f-head) as a 30BST/THF and manage to go 1/2 on the signa, but took 3 days to get the 2nd claim because of the competition. BTW...IT IS A RARE OCCASION.....BUT HE CAN SPAWN BELOW THE CLIFF!!!

/charm works great against the /ra claimers, but if ur too far, its pretty laggy to get the 2nd try in time (well for me atleast).

and for me he spawned every 2-3 hrs....not 1

Ps.....i will NEVER camp this foo again

Hoo Mjuu the Horrible

I used to play on Midgard under the name Phalian and cancelled my account which had millions on it. I started again under the name Knice and decided to camp this mutha again like i had so many times before.

So far i'm 2/3 on the pull and 1/2 on the drop. I'm pretty happy that I got this POS because everyone who has ever camped this guy knows how much of a pain he is.

The crappy part of it is that when I had my old account back before the PS2 release the Signa sold for 400k. Now it only goes for about 100-150k so I'm just gonna have to keep camping to pay for my crafting addictions. Goodluck to all my fellow Hoo Mjuu Hunters^^
i hate you

WOOT! Just got this afternoon, teamed up with new friend. Both had thf subbed, got on first claim. So far 1/1! If that isn't luck, I don't know what is!

Wow, and I just bought this on Quetzacoatl for 7k. And to think I started regretting it as a WHM since it had the same stats (important to me) as Holly Staff +1. The power of resell.

If you bought this for 7k your extremely lucky. And you are mistaken, it does not have the same attributes as the Holly Staff +1. The allure of the Monster Signa is the CHR+8, which makes it exceptional for Bards and for lower lvls Bsts
My Experiences with Hoo Mjuu

I decided to camp Hoo Mjuu after having some difficulty charming some mobs with my BST. I researched the NM on every forum I could find, and found that some info was good, while others were just bullsh*t. Here are my experiences with Hoo Mjuu the Torrent on Unicorn server.

First off...I camp Stray Mary and Hoo Mjuu, swapping when there are too many ppl camping one of them. The job i've camped with is WHM60/BST30...so that I can tele between Mea and Dem, as well as have /charm. I have my own beliefs that BST has a hidden treasure hunter (I've gotten many rare drops w/o /thf for TH) But once again, its all personal preference.

Spawn Locations: The map on cannotlinkto isn't 100% correct. Once you get up to Hoo Mjuu's plateau, there are 6 spawn locations -- which are all over the plateau. Just take a close look at where the Yag Medicants spawn and you'll see 6 spawn points. The best spot to stand as far as viewing angles seems to be the high rock in the middle of the plateau. You can't miss it, it kinda juts out over the edge. I've gotten most of my claims from seeing him spawn on that rock, and it provides easy access to any direction you need to run to claim.

Placeholders: The Yagado Medicient is the placeholder for Hoo Mjuu. I've tested this theory on the few times I was the only one camping. There are some who say that killing anything but the placeholders will lengthen the spawn time of the NM, but idk, i think thats bullsh*t, but whatever floats your boat. Personally, I don't bother killing the rest of the Yagado just b/c I don't need any of the items they drop, and it distracts from looking for the NM.

Claiming: I've seen almost every job out camping Hoo Mjuu, and I stand firm that /bst is the best way to claim. I've had Hoo Mjuu claimed before these /thf even have time to get their crossbow out. My reasoning for /bst is that /charm is an instant claim, and has a very long range (hmm...longer than provoke, and i belive about the same as the RNG's shadowbind). You do what ya want, but ranged weapons are a joke. They just take too long to claim. Even if i'm out of range with /charm, I can usually get in range to use it before /ra can shoot.

Respawn Time: I've been keeping a log of the death time of Hoo Mjuu, and I have yet to see a pattern in the respawn time, other than it takes at least an hour. I've seen ppl say that it there is an exact pattern (one guy said take the van'dail time it was killed, add 1 day + 3h20m, and it will spawn...bullsh*t) Here are the past 3 spawn times on 12/27, you make your own judgments.

Killed - 11:34 AM / 16:35 Firesday
Killed - 12:47 PM / 22:56 Earthday
Killed - 2:40 PM / i forgot to write down van'dail time, it was 22:00 Windsday i think

All times on previous days were also between 1 and 2 hours. Make your own judgements.

Drops: I'm considering using BST/thf in the future (bah, no teles!) to test out if TH really helps. As of now, I am 1/10 on the Monster Signa (and 10/25 or so on claims....couldn't get claim as /thf with a /ra or /ma flash).

A little side note, I got the Monster Signa my second claim with /bst on a New Moon (0%). So to hell with TH and the moon theory. /bst FTW.

You might want to try darts with your thief. I've heard this is extremely fast, most thiefs that camp the Theif's Knife NM use darts to claim.

How good is the signa for BST? I got the drop today and I'm trying to figure out should Keep it for my BST or sell it.

I'm from Valefor server, I'm a fairly new BRD. I'm only lvl 23. I have one of these and I was wondering how long a BRD should use it? At what level is there something better?

Hey Jaxson,

Not sure if you still play or if you still come here on Alla at all, but I was wondering if you ever obtained the Monster Signa, haha. Seemed as if you had some pretty bad luck with the drop :/

I'm 0/1 atm, nothing in comparison, I know.

I finally got the Moster Signa to drop from Hoo Mjuu; i was beginning to think it was just a myth after killing him around 15 times with no drop and never seeing anyone else who got the claim, claim they got the drop. I just started camping him with TH2 and the fifth time I killed him, I got it. WOOOO HOOOO! The sweetest thing is there was a red mage campimg him at the same time, but he logged right before he popped. He would have got the claim too. Findeiyd, if you read this, thanks for logging. :)

I used to camp this thing hard core, til I realized there was better ways of making money.

Decided to go back camping it about 2 months ago while a static friend was camping some NMs of his own. In ONE week I went 3/9, before that I was about 5/50 give or take a few claims. Made me have some money to mess around with that week (bout 1.5 mil, one drop was a split cuz a friend claimed it for me).

Too bad its not 2.7 mil like it was during my one drop. Now going for 300k on Midgardsormr, when I got my 3 drops it was 500-700k and the other 5 were 700-2.7 mil.

Then a month later I got rich on the BCNM "Dropping like Flies" so Ive just been getting real lucky on the game, which is needed if you want to keep your gear good for SAM at 70+.

Also a lot of GS bots are there nowadays... I got 2 banned in that 1 week span.. first one I reported because they said they raped my mom after fuming off at me in Spanish. Then the next argued with me because I claimed it faster than his bot, I told him to go /unanon and was a Rank 1 level 50 MNK/THF, then I tried talking to him like a normal person and he said "this is my job" in rough english (he was Mexican too).

I did feel kinda bad for him, he basically tried to talk to me like a normal human being then I stabbed him in the back, but RMT's deserve it, and now he doesnt have a job unless he levels another character.

BTW good hint if your ever camping against a noob bot like him, they will use flee EVERY TIME, even if they can Chi Blast/Voke from where they're standing, do a 360 degree turn and press your voke macro non stop. Sometimes the 2 seconds Flee takes can give you enough time to get the claim and thats why he thought I was a GS/Bot.

It's a luxury. Definately not a must.

This is coming from someone who can't get the drop.
# Nov 15 2006 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
hes right... at least for the most part, when ive played bard I never found the signa to be a awsome v. ***** up thing. It is just very nice to have (and I do mean very nice)
# Sep 25 2006 at 3:25 PM Rating: Decent
I think the monster signa's stuck at 300-400K on valefor for a loooong time : (
not much worth on Odin

Now 0/3 on this annoying thing. My friend and I are camping this for a surprise present for our friend. There's actually one more we didn't get claim, and I think those guys got the signa. /sigh.

Surprisingly, there's little people camping this. No rmt. Surprise surprise. Two **** the first time, a *** WHM who left after we claimed the first one the second time.

I went as rng/thf, shadowbind the thing to beat flash.

That sucker dropped deodorize all thrice.
First NM.

I've never had much luck with even SEEING a non-event related notorius monster spawn; this guy honestly was the first one. I was camping him for signa against two dragoons, a paladin, two white mages, and a few random naked runner bys that would stop and ask for ToD.

I get one dragoon to admit he's got a signa, and only wants the mitts, so if he gets signa, he'll give it to me. 4 spawns later, he and I are the only ones left, and we feel like racing to see who can get claim first. I'm 40 red mage subjob 15 theif, so I'm relying on a fastcast1 dia to grab him. He spawns as the dragoon is running by, he doesn't see him, I move in and dia, get claim. This is my first NM spawn witnessed, as well as first drop. I got the signa I so badly need for my bst.
First NM.

LMAO @ you. Mitts are dirt cheap. Signa sells for 500k- 1mil depending on your server. Are you really that gullible?
Its not the NM I hate, its the BOT that steals my claims.
# Aug 10 2006 at 12:19 PM Rating: Decent
Man, i was there for over 12-14 pops on this NM Hoo Mjuu the Torrent but i kept losing the claims to this BOT named Bigegg. I would watch with hawk eyes but he would start moving id follow but he would be halfway to Hoo Mjuu before he poped. It was just me and him all those times every1 else gave up on trying to get the claim. But there was 1 time the BOT wasnt there when i was running through. But this time there was over 6-9 ppl there. They would run around and kill everything and I sat and waited.He poped and i got claim over a Ranged Attack some1 did because i was BLM35/WAR5 ^^ so gimp. But i got the claim, even though i got silenced and every1 had trained about 7 mobs to get hate i killed him..... no F****** drop but mitts. The other thing that sucked was i gave the mitts to a friend before i relised they where 60k on Caitsith >.> So i sold all my +1 Seers gear and other gear i didnt need and bought it. I dispise that BOT if anyone in Caitsith report him to a GM i would apreacite it. Because i almost got banned for "GM call abuse" by some retarted GM.
