Easy NM
# Nov 10 2007 at 8:58 AM Rating: Decent
Ok this guy is easy as hell. If you can kill Centurio X-I, then you'll have a cakewalk with this guy.

This NM has horrible horrible accuracy both in Melee and in Ranged. Here's my strat for this guy. I'm a 68 Drg(I've been soloing him since I was a 65 Drg):

I buff up for his 2 hour using {Blink} and {Stoneskin}, since his accuracy is so crappy they don't wear until he uses his 2 hour on me. But I always shot for my Wyvern to have hate (through SJ) when he 2 hours. His 2 hour has never done more than 500 damage to me with {Stoneskin} up, never more than 700 damage to me without {Stoneskin}, and he has never done anymore than 800 damage to my Wyvern with his EES. He will 2 hour anywhere from 70%-40% health, so it is always hard to pinpoint when he uses it.

Warning: When he 2 hours, you are not going to have enough time to avoid it. He will hit you with it before you realize he's used it.

But all that's needed once you get past his 2 hour is to melee him to death. His accuracy gets a little better after he 2 hours and he hits pretty well when he connects. But as long as you have either mage as your main or subbed, you will survive his melee attacks.

I had the exact time written down for when I got the bow finally, but all I can remember off the tope of my head is this: It was a Full Moon 90% and it was Watersday.

But when you get the bow as a drop you should recieve as much lag as I did. When it dropped, it paused the game for a whole 2 seconds. Which is an extreme eternity, compared to usual drops. I usually get a split second pause in the game when I get a drop, but the Loxley Bow dropping was an insane pause.

I'm 1/6 on this not using TH or any THF in party. Furthermore adding to my constantly telling ppl TH is completely useless on NM drops!! Which I have found true, time and time again. I run across ppl telling me that they are 0/7, 0/8 or 0/9 etc. on him or Centurio X-I's cloak drop when they used TH, and I'm sitting over here not using TH or /THF and being 1/6 on the bow, and 6/9 on the cloak from Centurio X-I. TH is useless on NM drops, please get that through your heads TH whores.

But I hope this helps others out, even if only by a little. This guy is nothing special at all, he's easy if anything.

So, as soon I get home from work I start to download the August update. When I was logged on finally I didn't know which NM I wanted to camp so I said hey; I might want my Loxely Bow! I called a friend of mine who showed me where he spawned and we cleared the room; waited for repops and cleared the room again. I had to log so I told him; ok one more pop set then I gotta run. Sure enough; that was just enough to get NM to pop and we killed him in a matter of seconds. He EES me but my shadows absorbed the dmg as I was 75RNG/NIN and my friend was 75BSST/NIN. My first time camping him and I got my bow 1/1. I'm very happy, this thing shoots extremely fast and all my ls buddies are saying that it is a very rare drop.. So now I'm even happier that I didn't have to camp it for weeks. Anyway that's my story; hope you guys have same luck as I did.
Hmmmm, kinda make me wonder.....

Hello, just got this bow yesterday and i was kinda wondering. What if one where to go /blm get all the int gear they could hold, some fire arrows, and the HQ fire staff. Since it fires so fast would the damage add up quickly, or am i just day dreaming lol. My rng is only 50 atm and i don't have a HQ fire staff. Can someone test this or know of anyone that has?
got it today

So..i been wanting to get me a loxley for awhile.I camped it before on my nine and beat it no drop.So today i go back there as 75 mnk/thf and kill the beetle first then killed the ants.On next series of pops,Sagittarius pops and i chi blasted him and this is how the fight went..
chi blast for 67
hit for 134
hit for 105
counter for 109
counter for 109
hit for 182
use dodge
hit for 135
hit for 98
use boost..asuran fist for 1219
THE Sagittarius X-XIII uses Eagle Eye Shot.
Alphamale takes 1818 points of damage
Alphamale was defeated by Sagittarius X-XIII.

Thats the only damage i took and it took it all in one shot.
My hit points bfore fight was 1717,hume mnk with carbonera food.
I took it from full hp to about a lil bit more than 2/3's in a few sec's
Fortunately a 75 pt was there to finish it off to avail no drop,as usual.now that i think abou it,i may have ad couinterstance up still from fighting an at down the hall from earlier.Oh well..i know his EES can hit hard now...

went back 4hrs later,as pt was there(i think RMT all r3 no ls)anyway..killed princep pop..next pop was sagitarrius.I stayed mnk/thf,but made sure no counterstance this time and EEs only did 586 and it dropped darksteel,robe,2 iron ores..no bow.

It's fast alright.

This thing is a slippery lil beast. It fires off even faster than I had dared hope for, from a bow in particular. Hit lands before the /ra animation has finished, it interrupts it in fact. The TP return is understandably low, I was getting 6 TP per hit.

The drop rate is not that great. I went 1/5 on the thing. One time I had a MNK75/THF37 with me and 2 THF75s and still no drop. So really, TH doesn't help a whole hell of a lot on this one if you ask me. And the beetle isn't a PH (lol), it popped while we were fighting the ant.

The best way to camp this NM is to not camp it, per se. Just clear the room until it shows up, and then don't bother to continue killing. Come back some 6-12 hours later, clear the room a few times and it should pop again. Going hours in that room killing ants isn't going to be fun. The thing is so seldom camped that you don't really have to worry much about someone else nabbing it while you're gone. When you're done camping, wait for all the ants to pop and then leave, so you can be sure it didn't spawn 10 minutes later. These ants aren't killed much, so by the time you get to it again, half a day later or so, the thing will be dying to pop.
0/3 thus far.

Woke up and decided to try this guy out for my 67 ranger before heading to work.

Killed the princeps, then the rest of the mobs, including the beetle that wanders around in that room. After a little while the NM spawned in place of the princeps, and I took him down with ease on my 75 pld/nin. No drop. Went to work, came back around 12 hours later and repeated the same thing. NM popped from the princeps and I took it down, no drop again.

I plan to try my luck again tomorrow at around lunch time (12 hours later) and do the same thing once again, killing that beetle and all. Lets hope I don't get to 0/4, i'll keep you guys updated.
omg... I'm retarded

So there I was, camping for 11 and a half hours, when he finally popped, he was waaaaay to easy, and of course he dropped 1/1... but... this is where it goes stupid... I 2 box... my "mule" was supposed to pass, and being tired from being up so long accidently lotted a 989... I lotted an 800... I was first to lot.. only 2 people in the PT....

So needless to say here is the link


Btw... don't look if you like the bow -.-

Got this bow yesterday. 1/1 with a 75 WHM, 67 SAM and myself a 63 RNG. Trivial fight, dropped everything it could as well as the bow. ( I subbed THF ).

What everyone says about it is true, but I would like to make one little addition, in an Xp party... especially if you are a Mithra, don't bother so much with accuracy food, the +12 on this sucker makes a BIG difference, I use yellow curries and alot of people scoff about me turning into Ms. Missy Wfff-winder... until they see that with this bow, I don't miss much at all. In fact because the damage, light as it is, is spread across quite a few shots, the laws of averages seem to favour me in the end. With Yellow curry and extra RATTK and STR ( = damage)... I also gain some more. I just wish I had an E-Bow to make some comparisons.

Pay close attention to the Ranged Accuracy kiddies, it's what makes this bow as deadly as it is. The super fast fire rate is fine, but without the RACC, it would be nothing more than a brag/mantlepiece special.

Oh... and start woodworking well in advance of getting this bow, you need to be 49+. I'd say the ability to make Scorpion arrows in the very least, is a must, otherwise you will need to sell your firstborn to a gilseller to feed this little beastie of a bow. You should also marry Nokki and/or grow carnations because you will also be one big walking quiver. Gobbie bag to 60 is a given too.

For a little more perspective. I've engaged a La-theine hare at maximum range and put three into it before it got close enough to whack me. Woe betide a Goblin in Valkarum Dunes casting anything but an instant spell... because it will be the last thing they do. Most mobs on the small end of the scale get one parting shot before you snuff them entirely. You cannot do that with a Selene's, you will get whacked atleast once, if not twice before you get your 2nd shot off. Euryto's cannot be that much different.

It's the embodiement of an old cliche... there are the quick... and the dead

I also need a bumper sticker for my *******

"My other Bow is a Selene's... yes... I Pwn joo."
nice bow

I tried it out and was actually able to pull hate of the nin againist the raptors in valley of sorrows with just regular shoots. Those 20-30 damage shoots adds up fast.

Cant wait to try it out againist the lesser birds in the new areas.
Pop time?

I hate this nm. I have spent like 20 hours camping it, killing the Anticans in the area. I have seen this pop 3 times, thus making me 0/3. The 4 hour thing is invalid. I have tried this, and it is false. This nm can be from 3 hours to 12.

I want this down to a science. This bow is a claiming bow; nothing else. It sucks in parties and everything, except claiming. I want it for claims. Rangers can't use darts. Sleep arrows are expensive and crappy. If you are going to switch to any kind of weapon, take the alternate method with xbow and sleep bolts. Cheaper and rarely will you sleep mobs over a blm or rdm.

I'm starting to think that this nm has a 6 hour repop time with lotery pop to spawn. I am still gathering information, and learning.

Robin of Loxley?
# Jul 07 2006 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
Dude, i think this bow might b named after Robin Hood. I've never seen any of the true robin hood movies except the disney one and the Mel Brooks one. But in the Mel Brooks one (called "Robin Hood: Men in Tights") Robin Hood is called Robin of Loxley. :P Just a little fyi.

1/1 on this, soloed as BLM75/RDM37. It can't be slept but it's not particularly dangerous. It's accuracy is awful and when it does hit, it does very little damage, less than 50. EES did however, go through a fresh stoneskin and hit me for 150ish. You can basically just stand there and nuke it, though you might have to Manafont depending on your luck.

Wow This is so much better then Eurytos' Bow!!! jk.

A few RNGs in my LS parsed this and the machine crossbow against the ebow and the results were interesting to say the least. On total Dot the lbow came out on top, with the mbow second and the ebow third O.o

Only problem is that it's actually more expensive to operate than a gun.

Not Definate
# Jul 11 2005 at 1:01 PM Rating: Decent
The bow is not a definate drop. I killed it as a DRK71 with a DRG72 on our way to raise a party member ( we were lvling lower lvl jobs ). we killed it and all we got was 2 copper ores and an antican robe.

He finally dropped for me today ^^. I camped him 4 days, once a day. He's pretty easy if you know what your doing. I soloed him today as a 64RDM/NIN. EES hit one of my shadows. Keeping stoneskin, phalanx, and utsusemi up and he fell pretty quickly.

Now..... I can't wait to use this bow. My ranger is at 39 so 18 levels to go. Gotta level NIN to 37 first though, and its at 29 so in essense I have 27 levels to go......Seems so far away. Some /comfort me.

People say this bow sucks ***, well, it doesn't. Great tp gainer, great acuracy, awesome delay. I went with some friends, 69 THF 70 RNG 56 RNG 62PLD(me) Waiting a long time, just killing princeps, then the THF got bored and trained. I had to help with (Promyvion - Mea) so i warped out, and right when I warped, he popped. THey killed easily. Got drop. Everyone who I heard got drop got it 1st time. I believe it is a definate drop.

# May 16 2005 at 5:17 AM Rating: Decent
I can also confirm this. We were there a couple of nights ago, with our set pt (47's) with PL whm and it popped - it's HUGE first off. We killed it (EES killed our tank and Shoulder Slam killed DRG) and the bow didnt drop. Lots of gil and ore but no bow. So not a garaunteed.

Not True, I was in a party at the area that Sagittarius X-XIII spawns, and my party pulled it. It took us about 10 minutes (levle 43 party) To take it down, luckily our NIN's shadows took the EES. We killed him and didnt get the Bow.And Later on my Brothers Server Him and his LS went to camp it. His party set up was :

They only took about 4 minutes with the Paladin and my brother using EES. Theu ended up getting 1 Darksteel ore, and two Iron Ores.
75 could solo it.. basicly
