Soloed easily as 75 DRG/BLU. With cocoon up EES only took off like 450, regular attacks were like 65-100, very easy to deal with. I took him out with a respawn pounding on me at the same time. Got teh drop 1/1 took about 3 hours for him to spawn after I arrived and started some mass gob genocide.
Solo as nin/whm + NPC

I just soloed this NM as nin/whm (with my NPC giving me extra cures). Pretty easy overall. I think I had killed it twice before, each time when I randomly passed by and saw the NM up. I dropped the bow and that will definately give me incentive to lvl my rng (currently 55).

NPC rocks at higher level. Mine gives me around 5 cure V when fully rested.

Good luck to all

Logged on Sunday after Maintenance and was killing PH's for roughly 1hr 45 mins and then Wyvernpoacher pops. I was PLD/RDM and an LS mate of mine just happend to be in the zone checking on Bune so he decided to join me as NIN/WAR.... the fight was a joke, his EES hit me for 88 with all my buffs + sentinel up. Killed him in about 5 mins and he drops EVERYTHING! So i'm finally done with Gustav Tunnel /hurray... all together i'm 1/3 on this guy, now I can get back to xping RNG.

Went with a friend last night for his dagger WSNM. Party was WAR/NIN,PLD/NIN,THF/NIN,RDM/NIN,RNG/NIN. I was a bit behind the others, they were in the tunnel, all of a sudden the THF shouts "Wyvernpoacher Drachlox sighted!" So we all run to the spot, big pile of goblins and right in the middle is the man himself. THF pulls the lot, PLD flashes Wyvernpoacher. THF zoned the links then came back as the goblin hit the deck, dropped everything including the bow (love THF). Then we went and got my friends WSNM beaten too, not a bad night!

My story:

75 WHM Tianjinn (me)
70 WHM Lutrina
75 RDM Rizzen
75 THF Jraja

Another LS WHM needed a testimony for Maat, so we head to Gustav Tunnel to robber crab/goblin camp. I passed Jraja along the way, he was camping Heronox for a friend of his and went afk. Rizzen was arriving late so just Lutrina and myself. We start clearing out the crabs so we can do clean pulls, 2 WHMs versus goblins is good but tanking aint a WHM's forte. We didnt have any problems or issues cuz we could do the standard 4-5 mobs rest routine. We start pulling gobbie, sure enough 1st one says enough of this and Bomb-Tosses himself to the next world. One thing doing Goblins, the sound effects change when they self-detonate the bombs. I now listen for that when I see the bomb toss to either run or stay. Anyways, Rizzen arrives and we kill a few more goblins before we can do the Alchemists who drop the testimony. So, we pull the 1st Alchemist no drop. Shepard in my way so we take him out. POP, Wyvernpoacher appears. I instantly ask the LS anyone need an O-bow? No answer, btw we have like 2 WHM standing by to tele people around for such matters even though we are a social LS, go figure. So, hell I want it, call for assistance, only the other 71 WHM and 75 SMN are available :( they can tele themselves. I being impatient send a tell to Jraja, he was back and I ask him if he could help take down Wyvernpoacher.

Jraja>> Sup?
Tianjinn>> Wvyernpoacher is up, can you help us kill him?
Jraja>> NM? up ok...
Tianjinn>> sweet
*invite Jraja*

Tarutaru THF are funny when they run. So we pull another punk goblin that decided to get my way of my O-bow, he goes down fast. WHM and SMN riding hard to get to the Tunnel from Crag. I had to go around the corner and pull him myself since Wvyernpoacher decide to take walk. Mind you, I am an impatient WHM when NMs are up and I want their heads for revenge and their treasure. 5 minutes later 1 dead Wyvernpoacher and 1 happy WHM. O-bow dropped and gold coin plus other junk. I lotted on my O-bow "8" yes a damn "8". Fortunately, my party was nice to pass but I got the O-bow. Now to level up RNG 23 atm. Yes, I know a lot of you are pissed at my lucky WHM but :P I helped a lot people out and nice to see a reward like this even though I can't use it yet. We pulled the next Alchemist that popped, Testimony drops. At this moment, I dont know if my luck or having my Leprechaun Tarutaru Jraja TH ability but its a game and I am happy.

2/5 Wyvernpoacher (1st time a RNG got the drop, now I own one hehe)
4/9 Leaping Lizzie (I was 1/2 before the patch to make them B-Boots)
1/2 Argus (1st kill the amulet drops, second no drop - farming with friend)

Weird thing, I get these drops as WHM/BLM or WHM/BST and I carry a 4-leaf. Got my rarab tail a month ago, so hopefully my WHM luck carries for other future items I desire.
Got it
# Jul 25 2006 at 11:50 AM Rating: Decent
I got mine today.

I was 1 of 4 on drops. Super easy solo for bst thanks to anti-mpk update:

-Grab a crappy pet ep or dc snip
-Put pet on him, let pet get hate (he'll have adds by then)
-Run to the tunnel by the lower level skeles.
-Heel pet
-When it gets to camp with the train, Leave pet
-Call CC put it on him
-Cast SS and blink (you don't want to eat a EES)
-When CC is almost dead sneak up, go in skele room charm target a ep/dc snip (not in aggro range of anything else)
-After that pet is dead if call bst is up put CC on him, if not charm another pet.

Each time it took me 2 CCs and 2-3 ep/dc pet snips.

*edit* Use Zeta's when timer is up

Here is my story on this bow. Joined an XP party levels 58-60, we went to Bibiki Bay and got completley owned. After raise we decided to go to Gustav tunnel and level on some gobs and crabs. We get there and xp is decent. After about an hour, this NM gob spawns. I immedietly ask pt if we can take, one person looks up and says we will get our faces torn off. So i stay away. Untill someone asks what it drops, and all i see(and am focused on) becomes obow. I'm freakin out now bc a bst that was soloing called her LS. The whm asks if i need it in /tell, and i say heck yea.(58rng btw) so he runs and gets his 75smn, on his way back, the Bst's ls arrives. So the pt tells me to claim. I shadowbind it and step out of range. The blm casts ES and Sleep 2, it doesnt work. So it gets unbound, we run around like chickens with our heads cut off. Finally the smn gets there, and we start attacking it. After a couple imfamous bomb tosses, the smn falls, as well as other pt members. The gob looses hate, and the others claim it. They get drop and i ask if i can have, but they charge me. i talked them down from 500 to 450k. Figured it was a good deal, but im not entirely sure. From previous posts it seems like it was. Feedback if you will^^

Good luck to all

I'm a 68 Mithra ranger at Caitsith Server and how I got this crossbow was a mixture of luck, patience, communication between various exp parties/HNM ls, and tons of shiheis, sleeping and bloody bolts. I'd like to thank the following for the 17 hours of HELL spent camping this NM (with 40% waning moon and going down):

Rikuide: 75 WAR/NIN (my boyfriend <3)
Danika: 75 WAR/NIN (my AWESOME FRIEND!!! <3)
Laharlofdemons: 75 THF/NIN (Danika's AWESOME FRIEND!!! <3)

And I'm also thanking the following:

Winrich: 50s BST for helping with an approximate ToD and providing helping Rik with Widescan on times I got d/c.

Abalon: 50s WAR for offering his help.

Thank you all for the help, especially you, Danika and Laharl!!! I didn't expect you two to help me without my asking. ^^; Thank you and I am forever grateful for all the help~!!! /kneel

Thank you for helping~!!!

Hmmm, a bit bitter aren't we? Not my fault that stuff happened to you. Perhaps if you communicated better with people, that would not have happened to you and each of us have our own definitions of what's hellish ingame. Better luck next time~!

17 hours of hell? i've been camping it daily to weekly for 5 months now. i've seen 3 cgf parties take the nm as i was about to pull it. I got mpked by an annoyed exp party, whom killed it and dropped the obow. You don't know hell.

Is that really an O-bow?

In that screenshot, I think that mithra is a thief using a Stauroborow or Armbrust. Come on, why would any Ranger equip a shield? I guess it's possible though. x.X
RE: Is that really an O-bow?
# Jun 26 2006 at 3:06 PM Rating: Decent
I use mercanaries targe when i sub war for a little extra hp. Also, since i've lvled pld, my shield skill is capped and it blocks 20-30 damage fairly often.
RE: Is that really an O-bow?
# Mar 31 2006 at 3:28 AM Rating: Decent
That may be one of the lvl 30 shields. I have a 'Pilferers Aspis' for when I sub THF, usually when farming or hunting. It's handy and the extra def never goes astray, it is, after all an empty slot unless you are subbing NIN.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 22 2006 at 1:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Got to gustav and he pops 15 minutes later, exp pt gets it down to 91% then escapes so I try to Sleep... resisted. So I Bind/Gravity it and DoT it. After 15 minutes of Bio II, Poison II and Choke, he's down to 68%
Can we call that Chance ?

OK so here`s what happened to me:

Was lvling in Gustav Tunel then we see this NM. I had never heard of it. I looked at the net to see the drop then we decide to fight it, after half mob Hp down, he kill the NIN tank then critical me for 249 following by a 906 Eagle Eyes Shot guess what !!... I died.. then the party escaped.... While death a see a BLM party pass by me then see them overkill the Mob. As soon as he died they raised2 me then i received in /tell
***** >> Do you need the Bow ?

So that`s how i got it ^^

1/1/1 ( 1 death/ 1 kill/ 1 drop ) :P

P.S. Sry for the spelling ^^ English`s not my 1st language >,>

Today i made my 3rd attempt at camping this coveted bow and there were no rng's or high end people at the camp spot, i at this point had camped it for a total of 15 hours. There was an xp party there and i asked its leader Darkdoom if they were there for the xbow, he said no so i asked to help me if it should pop. he agreed. i then waited with sopha a 75 pld, and a sam friend of hers @ 65, i was a 70 RNG at this point. after a3 hour wait it poped while we fought a regular mob. i pulled it think ing the other mob was near death and we could handle it. the pld got aggro from both and with nearly full mp died from interuptions, the sam next me last... we got raised by a testement pt on the other side of the pop area, we waited for weak to drop and i see like 10 people including xylo and spencer ( from my other ls not less). i tred to pull again and realized darkdoom had dia'd it and so was happy. i asked for an invite and he said nothing but noticed the people that had not waited at all could hit it. i sreamed wtf and such and they killed it. no drop but for the record may the names ZYLO,AND DARKDOOM from the garuda server be names of whom we all now know are the lowest for of scum in FFXi!

the worst kind of people

If you see any of the mentioned "Bad" people please "Skillup aoe mobs" near them. thank you.

I can understand you being angry at Darkdoom, and I also can't... What's the difference between you losing this to another camper that watched you die on it?
And it's not like it's an instant drop into ones inventory <,<; he could have invited you into group afterward.

Prehaps what you should have done if you had wanted his help was to invite his party into an alliance once you pulled it. Or, you could have just used your Rangerability Shadowbind to hold the mob in place while you finished the other one... That's what I use all the time to pull NM, as I don't have provoke.

damn this NM
# Dec 03 2005 at 3:06 PM Rating: Decent
I'm a 75rng and I still don't have this damne thing. Popped agter 2 hours of waiting once I logged on, was unopposed and just my luck my thf friend d/c'd just before he popped. I did it with a couple LS mates that are trying to help me because I am refusing to leave here for sky, dynamis, or anything until I get this crossbow <_<. I'm currently 0/1 on this and hoping the repop time is short because I already hate him after camping 8 hours yesterday and no pop. He went down especially fast with a 75mnk and 59whm helping me. It was maybe a 1 minute fight if you neglect the time I shadowbinded to wait for thf. Been an hour since he popped and he still isn't back so it didn't really matter. finished it with sidewinder and got jack. I have e-bow but I really want this bow because if it can do enough damage I'm dropping the e-bow in the AH and buying myself some dusk trousers and a wyvern helm. If you have any info on this cursed NM be sure to tell me. (75rng/37nin), siren sever
RE: damn this NM
# Dec 09 2005 at 4:23 AM Rating: Default
from what I've been told, killing a mob with a ranged attack or a spell decreases the drop rates on certain items. I think killing it with a sidewinder may be hurting you actually.
#Lobivopis, Posted: Oct 28 2005 at 7:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) All I can say is.. meh. The entire point of an xbow is that it has low delay. This thing does less damage per shot than an Ebow and has only slightly less delay so what's the freakin point?
RE: meh
# Jan 04 2006 at 8:26 PM Rating: Decent
the point of an Obow is that it can use status bolts and still so WS dmg thats comparable to other ranged weapons. the use of acid bolts throws the DoT of Obow up to the same ammounts of dmg bows or guns put out at lv75, plus lets other Dd in your pt deal more dmg at the same time. if you dont see how useful the obow is to a high lvl rng, then you either havent leveled rng or are an idiot.

and Ebow pretty much sucks at 75, its damage is around the same as a shingetto bow, which costs maybe 100k or so. the point of Ebow is to use it from lv55-67 because no other bow can compare to it at lv55, at lv75 the only reason to have it instead of a shingetto, gendawa, hellfire or Obow is as a symbol or your wealth, same as having a kraken club that you will never use in a pt ever.
RE: meh
# Jun 26 2006 at 4:53 PM Rating: Decent
Um... No. Hop over to KI forums and tell one of the rng's there that this bow is nothing but a status symbol. Should be pretty interesting for you.

The reason Ebow is so amazing is there is no cap for str. Low delay, High damage, No str cap. Get to use PPA with it. Rng's aren't putting out 3100 slugshots with Obow in lufaise. It outparses any ranged weapon in the game, hands down. It doesn't cost 12-18m on Kujata for nothing.

I'll take a Machine Crossbow over this thing. I'll destroy an e-bow in DoT with that. (of course I'll also spend a ton of money keeping it fed but if you can't afford to be a RNG don't be a RNG)

Cost of EBow on Asura = 10 mil
Cost of Obow = FREE!
Cost of Selene's Bow = FREE!

Cost of Arrows over level 60 = 20K for Demon, 25K for Kabura
Cost of Bolts over level 60 = Darksteel 20K, Mytrhil 18K, Holy 9K, Acid 9K, Bloody 10K

Am currently a 68thf/nin Taru, was helping a LS buddy get his whm testimony. Party of 3: me, Rdm70/blm, and Drk70/xx. A 75 Rdm/nin was soloing crabs next to us. Our Rdm yells "NM up"
and we invite the Rdm/nin to join us. The other 2 in our party decided to try for the drop for me (my rng is currently in mid-40s). No SCs worked out, we just started hacking and nuking. Drk and I both died during battle at the very end, got R1 from the two Rdms in time to go for the lot. Entire fight was only a couple of minutes at most. The rdm/nin decides he would rather have the gold beastcoin that dropped. I lot a 896 (could have been a lot 000!) and bingo, proud owner of an O-bow. Gonna be nice since I am going to level rng after Maat goes down....

Finally got mine after being f***ed up by a 0/6 drop rate ^^

Started camping at 10pm and we cleared all gobs we see, right after having our Ungur stolen -.-. It finally appearred at 1:40am, had 3 thf + 2 /thf. Don't know if it had anything to do with th or something, but we dropped everything that could be dropped of it, including "my precioussss" o.bow :)

Just for information, last death was 6.40pm so i have no idea of repop time or anything, but this info could be usefull to some of you ^^

==> I'm happy ^^

LOL, i got flamed for stating a fact. this is why i dont post much on alla. u should really check up on SE releases. thf's TH doesn't help w/ rare/ex items. take the time to look it up.

and i guess now is the time i'm gonna get flamed again by a Thf (which is my 2nd fav job btw) or someone who just wont look the info up.

You got flamed because you're wrong. If you don't know something, you should RESEARCH it before you make a statement and call it fact.

TH DOES affect Rare/Ex stuff according SE.

Wow, are you ever wrong. Why does anyone think this moronic thing? there is no place to look it up, and if there was it would say it doesnt work. Its actually stupid to even think it wouldn't work for rare/ex drops. Why? What would be the point of TH? Don't spread anything this stupid and foolish and u wont be rated down by people like me who know u are worng.
