Still not exactly known what the drop rate on this is, but I got mine on the first try with a THF buddy along. Both of us were 75, could of very easily done it solo as a DRG/WHM.

1/4 on the NM - It's rather easy to take down. Three out of the 4 times, it was Me (75whm), 75 RDM/Thf, and a 75 BLU/Whm - It took us no time. Last night it was the three of us again, with a 70 RNG/Nin, and a 66 Smn... Spawn time was unbearable, but finally got it!

The nice thing about this area, i was able to stock up on song scrolls for the next 15 levels... granted it's not all of them, but i do have 9 of them in my Mog Locker waiting to be eatten.

Thanks to Segg, Faded, Santashelper and my hubby Minflip ^^b

is this piece soloabale by 75rdm/ninja?

We were on our way to Charybdis and I was BRD with a WHM. I saw Novv the Whitehearted and went trigger happy. We both had RR up. Our NIN came, voked it, then proceded to beat the hell out of it. We didn't have to do much. So I think RDM/NIN would work just as well. D=

I would think you could solo it yeh, and could madly enfeeble it. I did on Mnk, so you should be able to!!! I got the piece last night, it's neat looking :P

Camped today with a nin. after the rmt bannings there wasnt any there. Quess that the groups camping ssg are gone. for now.
I went there at start solo rdm/nin 75 to kill ph but since i lack the damage to kill both ph with out haveing 4 adds witch i could kill but im to lazy i asked a nin 75 to come help kill ph.

I belive a rdm/nin 75 or a rdm/blu could easly solo this at 75. i would honestly say rdm/blu would have an easyer time since you can train all the mobs and not take damage. and just kill the ph. Killed for about 1 1/2 hrs max then both the nm in this room poped was killing every mob in there but crabs with me and the nin. Benediction sucks. but the nm were too weak. but im so unlucky with nm. like 0/24 on emp hairpin 0/42 on ose i deserve to go 1/1 on something. Minstrals Coat. pimp*

I camped this for a day, a whole day. 11am-5am the next day and only saw it 4 times, no drops.

Pain in my *** that hopefully will go away tonight.
Where are you Novv the Fishstick??!

So far, I've camped Novv on two occasions and both times he never spawned. The first day, i must have spent 2.5 hours and gave up. The second day, we spent ~5hours and no pop. SE really needs to make this mob a forced spawn just for this ra/ex coat. It really is a hassle...

Just finished camping Novv, got to the Gold Beastcoin door the at about 10.00pm Novv was up and a Ninja in the area helped me beat it, No Drop.

I called in some friends to help and we camped for about 4 hours taking out place holders, No Spawn.

I waited all through the night fighting with another Ninja and White Mage untill 11.00am before he spawned again and guess what, No Drop.

Its all about Luck and it seems I dont have any.

Camped for an hour and a half, no competition. It popped and we got the coat on the first try. I'm trying to decide whether to use this or my Gaudy Harness now...
My new coat ^^

This is another one of the classic "luck" stories...

I was helping a LS mate kill Chaby (joy sword NM) and afterwards i ask some memebers if they wanted to stick around SSG to camp this guy. i got 2 people to stay, so we went spawn site and killed fish for about 5 minutes. Then i had some RL aggro >< and told party i had to log. so they left while i logged off in SSG. 3 hours later i log back on and see all fish in the area are dead and theres a coffer pt kill em. i asked if i can join and if they would help kill the NM if he popped. well sure enough once i accepted the invite to the party...he popped. And guess what,

/Romyro shows off his new coat

Was fishing for grimmonites when I decided to go check out Novv's spawn area to familiarize myself. I'd been wanting this coat for awhile, but had never camped it before. Behind the gold door, I found a WHM and MNK farming for their respective testimonies. They'd been there for an hour, so I figured I'd help them out. Within 5-6 kills, we had a WHM testimony and 2 MNK testimonies. Needless to say, they were elated and promised to help kill Novv.

Gil farmers like to camp him for the siren's hair, and they were apparently waiting just outside the gold door. We had a RDM75 waiting outside the door to help, and the plan was to open the door just as I pulled Novv. Novv spawned, and we rested for mp as the gil farmers continued to wait patiently at the gold door next to our RDM. The MNK opened the door, and I pulled Novv (and linked two other sahagins ><). I kept them asleep while the others went to work on Novv. He did benediction halfway through, but we had more than enough firepower to take him down.

He dropped the coat and a siren's hair, which is worth a little over a million on Kujata. I was thrilled, even though the coat itself is ugly as sin. Anyway, I suppose the lesson is that if you help each other out, everyone can get what they want. Good luck!

Weeks and hours of camping later.. I went out to SSS hoping to find someone camping Novv already for the siren's hair. I got there and all the placeholders/regular spawns were still sitting around so I was like ....damn.

Then I saw two people on the far side standing around. I went over but it looked like they were just waiting for people, probably to fight Charbydis. As I'm turning to go one sends me a tell "hunting bard item?"

They helped me camp him and he spawned after 2 clearings and yes! Got the drop!!

Thanks you two ^.~

Erren (70 DRG), Shocker, (70+ WHM) and Ahren (60 RDM) helped me (62 BRD) camp this yesterday. We got incredibly lucky-- it popped after about 10 minutes and we got all of the drops, including Siren's Hair, on our first try. YES! :D

I just wish it looked cooler. u_u;

sadly, when worn this armor looks exactly like Tactician Magician's Coat.

Was hoping for something cooler since this is the best a bard can get (IMO) but hey, happy to have the armor ^^

Because noone is stupid enough to use this for anything other than a brd unless they have some odd mental disability.
