i was farming for key and this thing popped (me 65 smn) so i put ifrit on it, pull it back into tunnle and let it fly, he kill ifrit pretty quick and i had pull out carby and then used AF, ended up having to to zone with only sliver of health left on him (NM), i would have killed if i manged my 2 hour better ;;
asked the LS im in if anyone would help, a 67 WHM quickly teled to altep and PT up wiht me, we then engaed and basicly owned it, we even got silenced ( i think by a signifer that linked with it) with it still having 1/5 health so we then just beat the crap out of it with or staves... no bow. never saw it hit for more then 150 dmg or so, in fact mised most of the time.

next night popped again this time i soloed it wiht the help of some ethers and yag drinks. No bow again.
i see ppl posting that he uses eagle eye shot but unless i missed somthing i havent seen it yet.
anyways if anyone on hades wants to help me camp him and the other NM in that area (drops shamns cloak) i would greatly apreciate it... char is shoopufbob

Killed with a DRG62/WHM32, RNG66/NIN32, and SAM55/WAR27. There was a WHM64/BLM32 there as well, but he died so fast he didn't have to do anything.

I (DRG) killed all the other antica while the RNG was enroute to prevent links and to build tp. Paralyze to pull, Jump, Penta Thrust, Tachi: Jinpu, Barrage, Slug Shot, whack whack whack whack, dead. Got the bow, a pauldron, and two iron ores.

The RNG tried out the bow on a nearby beetle. He got off nine shots before all of us could kill it. He was shooting hilariously fast, but relatively weak shots. I'd say in a party he could easily pull off two Light SC's with two people in a party with that kind of speed.
Fun with Sagittarius

Helped the RNG in my static get this bow today after we were done xping. With a 63 PLD, RDM, & RNG, he didn't pose the slighest threat (duh). His 2 hour hit me for about 300 or so, and we got the bow on the first try. Myself and the RDM split the earnings on the Ore.

The delay on this bow is INSANE. Nothing else to really say. Our RNG wanted it for Ballista, and stated they saw no reason to use it in xp situations. Loxley Bow + Sleep Arrows + Ballista = pwnage.

It should also be noted that watching this thing fire is hilarious. A full animation can't even get off with this thing. The bow instantly appears, already loaded, RNG lets go of the arrow, bow disappears. Never even pulls it out or puts it away. In a word, awesome.

Am I just lucky or something? I was running around Quicksands (exploring for Savage Blade quest), saw this NM, didn't bother resting, and went through fight. 2HRed just in time to have his EES do 0 ^^ (Hurray for Invincible!)
Drops: 3k, 2x Iron ore, Antican Robe, Loxley Bow, Adaman ore...

No THF subbed...lucky drops?

I got this bow... only because I was the only person in my party who had even lvl'd ranger (my rng is lvl 26). It was a badass fight for us lvl 47's. We had Nin,Mnk,Sam(me),Rdm,Whm,Smn. The fight seemed to go on forever and half way through we traded out or RDM for another Pt's Rdm. As you can tell we didnt have a lot of dmg dealing ppl in our pt, mainly myself and Santeria (mnk). But we all knew exactly what we were doing and nobody got killed. Titan and Fenrir really came in handy. The funny thing is none of us even knew what he dropped, when he dropped a bow we all got excited.... until we realized it was rare/ex >_<
Sleep arrows

Use this to spam sleep arrows if you make a bad pull while everyone else runs away, i am pretty sure no crossbow as a delay as low as this.

Edit: -
Actually, ignore this, i can't think of a reason you'd spam sleep arrows while your party runs, one would be good enough. This would be good for getting Ustimis (sp) back up.

There's a Crossbow called the Repeating Bow I think that has 160 delay. And you'd probably spam sleep arrows for BCNMs, Ballista, or when pulls get hairy...^^

Machine crozzbow the HQ of it is even faster. About 2mil tho.

its good for stoping a mobs WS/2 hour/spells. In BCNM30 at giddius it would rock. all u do is spam sleep arrows and it would never get to cure it's self. not great for poor rngs though, fire off 4x more arrows, might as well use gun for same price.

Loxley Bow
# Sep 13 2004 at 4:54 AM Rating: Default
got my loxley bow while levelling my bard at quicksands with static party.

few comments abt this bow:
1) is indeed extremely fast.. I successfully pulled a wind elemental while a mage tried to cast dia on it.

2) the damage suxs.. the damage is abt 4 times lower than that a war bow +1 can deal

3) no doubt... is a pulling bow.. good for NM hunting if u r facing the correct direction where the NM spawn. Might be able to win Provoke cos Loxley is a range weapon

This bow is EXTREMELY fast. Actually, the speed of it throws off the animation of the Bow itself. This is a Long Bow, and towards the end of the "Pull out Bow" Animation, it kind of glitches up and just fires the shot. It's very very fast. I claimed a mob today over a WHM casting Dia. It's unreal. The only problem is if you're running towards a mob, you have to be careful of the "You move and interrupt your aim." crap.

rngs are already deadly in ballista with this bow, think about if it didnt have the "You move and interupt your aim" ******************************
RE: stupid subject
# Sep 09 2004 at 6:39 PM Rating: Decent
hey that message is what makes it fair, otherwise they should get rid of the spell interrupts from mages moving too.....deal with it u "can't take a hit" DD rangers :P

good point, this is kinda random, but i think its stupid how mobs can take so many hits and move while casting a spell and rarely get interupted

Not really random. Mobs cast Aquavail which "LOWERS SPELL INTERUPTS" ^^ besides it also goes by teh fact that you usually fight IT's I know for a fact that when I fight weaks that they can almost never interupt me without aquavale.

Wow This is so much better then Eurytos' Bow!!! jk. I can't wait to get this and spam Sleep arrows on everything! Also with Grand Knights Arrows its almost as fast as darts, and has a lower delay then most weapons, but ammo adds delay. This used with Shadowbind and flee will make an unstoppable Rng/Thf NM hunter!

Just a bit of fun trivia for those who didn't know, Loxley is part of Robin Hood's full title, Sir Robin of Loxley. Loxley was his birthplace. Robin was also known for the speed and accuracy of his arrows, although I don't remember anything about them being especially 'damaging'... so I guess the bow makes sense that way too. The only thing that doesn't make sense is that a giant freaking insect has it.

Oh there's something else that doesn't make sense - WHY CAN'T THIEVES USE IT?!

*It's Eagle Eye Shot, that is a RNG's 2-hour and also what Sagittarius X-XIII uses.

But, it is an excellent bow.

The best part about it is you can use it for so many things other than combat in parties. One example would be to fire off status arrows in a situation where you need to be quick. Like sleeping a mob with sleep arrows to save yourself or a party.

Then, you can also use it when NM hunting... I guarantee that you could beat out Provoke, both because of the huge range you have and the very short delay.

I got it with the help of my lvl 48 Party a lvl 75 DRG, and a lvl 60 whm. You can read about the fight I had with Sagittarius X-XIII in the page about him.

Good luck to anyone else getting one :)

I battled against this mob with a full party (47-48)...we were almost about to beat it than he used sure shot...(rangers 2hr ability) and hit me for 789!!! at the time I was a lvl 48 pally with top notch armor....In the end he slaughtered our whole party and walked away..

A party of 6 @ 47-48 can take it out? I dunno... sounds fishy to me...
# Apr 14 2004 at 4:15 PM Rating: Decent
Nah, it's true. We almost took it with party lvl 48. We ended up dying (mages lived, they zoned though). Then a lower lvl party (45-46) took it and killed it in less than 10 sec. The only thing that is fishy is the lvl rating on this website. Even seen other websites say that a party of 48's or higher is recomended for this mob.
# Jun 03 2004 at 5:52 AM Rating: Decent
Killed it about 3 hours ago with a party of 46-47's. We were leveling off of Antican's where he spawned and he popped up. We rested to full and took him on. Involved full use of everyone's 2 hours, but we took him down with only the loss of the RDM. Didn't get the bow though :(. So it can be done!
# Feb 21 2004 at 2:58 PM Rating: Default
This bow IS rare/ex so it can't be sold or traded, and yes the delay is real, this thing is like a machine gun.
# Feb 19 2004 at 4:56 PM Rating: Good
is this rare? ex? and are we positive on the delay..if so this would be a crazy bow....ya low damage but OMFG thats faster than a melee atk

Today at quicksands my pt got lucky enough to fight the nm that dropped the bow. only problem is its ranger only, non-tradeable and you can't sell. So it does me no good. I might start doing ranger when i get to 75.. lol

Yes I feel your pain! I got the bow as well (48 Samurai) and can't use it. I have Ranger but only lvl 9. Once the cash flow comes in at a rapid pace, look out, here comes Ranger!

Honestly I'm not sure that this is a good deal on a bow...

Most bow's have a way higher damage stat than say a crossbow or gun b/c arrows tend to have a much lower damage rating than bullets and lower-lv arrows have a slightly lower damage rating than bolts along with lacking the status ailments of bolts. What I'm trying to say is that bows, unlike crossbows or guns, have the main damage from the actual weapon rather than the ammunition. In addition the attack will still be slower than any one-handed melee weapon b/c you still have to add the arrow delay to the delay of the bow. I'm guessing the main use from this bow would be using the arrows that have additional effects, i.e. fire arrows on monsters that don't like fire. Plus with a bow designed like this you are going through ammunition faster for less damage/arrow.

Now if there was a gun or crossbow designed like this that would be insane!

# Mar 06 2004 at 3:37 AM Rating: Excellent
This is a VERY good bow... it would be great to gain TP, and pull off a lot of barrages. Also, when using effect arrows, it is an awesome combo, but expensive.
RE: rare?
# Feb 21 2004 at 4:43 AM Rating: Excellent
point taken...then again..it would be great for burning off all that ammo that we all have sitting around our mog...heaven forbid he takes up smoking now that I have all those bullets around.....can you say end of Mr. Moogle
