Was farming sheep in La Thiene, and mentioned to my LS mates these sheep are a rare breed, evolved without skin. and one of them tells me that konshtat (sp) is a better place to look for sheep. I head on over, and kill them for 20 minutes when i rush at one and flip around noticing it's different name. i check it and its impossible to gauge. so its a NM.. i decided to risk it, i tell my link shell afterward 'wow it dropped everything, skin, milk, horn, crystal..' and that is when one of the members sent me a tell that it was worth 200k o.o

I tried to get this thing for my upcoming Bard-times, so i went to the highlands and started killing sheeps. Stray Mary spawned once after about an hour, but only dropped the milk. I killed sheeps after that for about 6 hours, but it didn´t pop again, a few ppl helped me with that. After 6 hours i finally gave up. What am I doing wrong?
If somebody is on Hades server and can help me, i´m online pretty often:

Just give me a /tell please T.T

stray Mary Has 2 pop points, i'm not sure of the timing- i just play this game, not invest toomuch time in it...but youcan kill her near the cave with the stone monument in it for crawlers nest map, then move behind the mountain on he way too gustaberg and she should pop there within 1/2 hour unless she is very heavily camped, like she is on siren sever. either way just bring a few stacks of dark crystals, windurstian tea leaves and distilled water with you and it's not a waste of time, you can synth the hides you get. stacks sell for more then her horn does ANYWAY, so you can just buy it if you have too
is it necessary?

is this needed as a 14 brd, or is it really on used for bcnm, ballista and manaburns?

Ok I decide I want this for my BRD to do garrison. I get a teleport dem. Walk over. Kill a sheep. Widescan, see a tremor ram. Thinking "what the heck?" I hit flee and claim it. I hit is once and widescan again, and there is stray mary. So I'm like crap. I beat the tremor ram to death as fast as possible then walk over to stray mary. No one is there. I realize I forgot my bow and melee her. Bam bam bam... I get the drop. Took more time getting the teleport than the horn and milk(thinks its 100% drop). It goes for 600k on my server, now all I have to get is the signa staff.

But thats not the end... This MNK shouts saying he needs help killing rampaging ram. Hearing that lambert spawns ~1.5h I figure I might as well help him. We camp for four freaking hours. No mary, steelfleece, or rampaging. Finally we give up and log out.

So was I lucky or not?

I got really lucky with this one, was running through konshtant for a chocobo thing from sandy to bastok to kill some time. reward was a dragon chronicle. then just happen to see her, didn't know what she droped or if it was worth getting off the chocobo but i did it anyways. then forgot i didn't have THF subbed and got pissed. killed her and drop sheep meat, mary's milk and mary's horn. so i warp back to port jeuno. look up the horn and see it's going for 1 mil w00t!

gotta love quetzacoatle's ****** up economy sometimes ^^

People wonder if its worth it? Sleep +1 means the mob is sleeping for 1 extra second, so is it worth it? Its definatly not worth buying (i bought mine for 40k way back when it was worth it). It is worth campping it though. An extra second means you can cast 2 songs instead of one and still have time to cast sleep just as the mob is waking up.
jeez

I used to think it was a waste of time to camp Mary when I could make faster gil getting sheep & ram leather. I've gone 0/14 just claiming her as a side-dish when farming skins.

This weekend, I finally decided to buy a horn for my upcoming bardness. I figured 300k (going rate for last several weeks on Diabolos) ain't so bad even considering how much that price has inflated. So, I go to Auction house yesterday and none were up- one had just sold for 350k. Two hours later another sells for 400k. Next morning another @ 400k.

Now this is just ridiculous a 100k price increase overnight? I don't know who to be more upset with; the people listing at these prices, or those who are actually paying them... :(

I guess it's time to camp... two more claims last night : now up to 0/16


Now, to avoid this being just a 'pity-me'post, a Question;

For those of you who actually do camp this, what kind of drop rates do you get?

I was recetly on a trip to Giddeus to farm there. Once i was done making a nice profit in the tune of 35k ish i took myself for a ride to the crag of mea. Didn't have but 103 gil on me so i started my walk to bastok from their because it is my home country.

I have a windower so i was chatting on my IM's when i look up and see the sheep run past me..... it's Stray Mary...

I target her and type im /ma Dia.... which fails to cast, so i type it in again. SUCESS i claim her! No body else was around so i was in no danger of loosing claim on her. It didn't hit me untill the shock wore off that i did infact have thief subbed for th1!

After a few second of fighting i come out inhand with a 100% drop rate of the milk! ( FINALLY get to finish that quest) AND A SHINEY NEW HORN!. I was shaking pretty badly as i sent out the 10+ tells claiming my rights to victory over that poor sheep.

I am 0/11 on erase but my friend has a bard + selas she's willing to use on me, well once we get ready and i get 10 seals im giving her this horn egardless if we get erase or not, she currently does not have one of her own.

I was looking in the Jeuno AH on the Leviathan server to buy this for my bard, come to find out it was 60k. I had that and decided to buy if for some BCNM fights. Being in some weird hurry, I accidentally input 600,000 and, of course, got the item lol

About an hour later, and through almost killing myself, the person who I bought it from sends me a /tell saying "lol you know what you did right?" I told him I felt really stupid. He and I had a good laugh for a few minutes and he sent me back 540k.

I love cool people, I would've done the same thing lol

Many moons ago, I camped Mary with a l/s mate for the milk and got her after about 5 straight hours of killing sheep. Got milk, I did the quest and we split the reward money.

Lately, I've been levelling BRD and really want the horn, but I don't want to pay 150k for it. First day camping, 7 straight hours and nothing. Fell asleep playing. Woke up and apparently I wasn't the only one who slept. At the very top of my chat log was Stray Mary misses XXXX, Stray Mary misses XXXX, Stray Mary misses XXXX, etc. about 8 times. Next message is YYYY's ranged attack hits Mary blah blah blah.

I felt kind of bad for missing the pop, but at least I wasn't the one she was attacking while I slept...that guy probably felt a lot worse.

3 more days at 4-6 hours each, haven't seen her since.

Well one day i was farming rams as i usuall to when i'm bored and dont feel like leveling... i was 50whm/25rng. The time was approximately 4:17 when i started. Well the tremor rams were plentiful, the horns were flowing like wine. I was making gil. thunder elementals were spawning like people at the welfare office on the first of the month.... Then it happend.. I was on my way to a ram when a high level thf was in the middle of fighting it. He asked if i was farming rams and i said. yes... yes i am. Then he said well i wont bother with then anymore i'm here for the big boy.. So i think, hmm thank you, then he asks if i had seen Big Daddy Steel Fleece. I chuckle and say.. no my friend, i have never seen him in my year of playing. So i go about my business widescanning for rams and then i saw it. That infamous name, i thought i'd never see.. Steel Fleece baldarich.. my heart sank, (you know that feeling when you see a NM on widescan and its a mile from you and you start running to it, praying its not claimed) so i get to him, and see him just chillin, eating grass, having a good time. a bunch of his groupie mad sheep dancing around him while he laid back. Then about 3 seconds later i felt something was wrong.. the sheep were'nt dancing anymore, he no longer had a drink in his hand and i could feel the tension coming from him as he stared at me from about a good 20 second run away from me. So i get a little fidgity. He begins to walk towards me, At that moment i knew the I would be explaining to the grim reaper why i woke him up in the middle of the day. I get sucked in immediately and he pounds on me for about ohh... 2 minutes missing and hitting me for about 160, while i run like i'm on fire and trying to put it out for the zone. I was about where the crag is when he broke out his special move, (forgot what it's called, hundred fists or something like that) and hit me for 300 more damage.. benediction did'nt save me this time. Down i fall in slow motion as he tramples over me snorting. So i call upon the 70+ pld i know in jeuno, he brings forth his army and fought him for about appx. 6-8 minutes, then he falls. Drop?? Negative... Seen him the next day around 5:00 pm... I even asked the guys that hunt him religously and they all say he has a 24 hour spawn time, not a 72 hour one.

Thanks/Rocky/Sylph Server

Braniac, this item is dropped by Stray Mary, not Steelfleece. The only thing they have in common is the zone.
Hm.

My friend wanting to do the BCNM, hunted Mary and is currently at 0/8. And he spent 18 hours+ hunting the damn thing...I suggest you do it with other people...perhaps form a party/alliance with others camping her too? Oh well, we all hate gilsellers. ^^
baah

Ugh I hate this little lamb (though she /is/ bigger than a mad sheep >.>) 0/6 plus 4 misses altogether -_-

Have you tried asking the campers who are camping for the horn, to give you the milk if it drops? Most people will be polite about it if you tell them you're doing it for the quest. If they don't share the Mary's Milk with you, then they're just greedy mean **** heads. >=/
First times a charm?

I was Farming Sheepsking & leather when i see a /shout "Stray Mary Sighted at (F-9)" (i think) so i use my oh-so-useful FLEE and haul ace. hit my widescan and get to tracking her.
I see the lvl 13WAR that /shouted sitting there right by her. i guess he was to low of a lvl to kill her. so i engage her. this is my first NM besides the ever-present Yagudo ones in the caves of Giddeus.
I go for the Sneak Attack and she turns so i miss it. now it's just me and her mono-e-mono. i was hurt a little to start with but not to bad. luckily i still had some arrows cause my throwing that i was lvling would not have been enough. so i kill her and she drops the milk and horn!
The WAR ask me if i got the drops i said yes and thanked him thinking i had an item worth maybe 20 or 30K which would have doubled my total gil at the time. when i got to the AH in bastok and saw the price my jaw dropped.
THANKS (unknown name) WAR for that shout i was 100K richer and 1/1 on Mary's lil Lamb.
Have only gotten milk
