Went to LoO as 75 BST/NIN to level synch pt with wifes BST. When we were done, I checked WS and saw he was up. Challenging fight, but managed to beat him after using about 20 pets (Toromas and Courier Carries).

1/1 - Got the Assault Jerkin and Ose Whisker. Luck was on my side today, doesn't happen often.

The day after I said I was ready to give up, my nin friend said he'd help me. Duoed as DRG73/WHM36 and NIN75/DNC37. 1/7 and worth it.

I feel bad though, cause my nin friend needed it too, but he just let me have it. And everytime we try to get it for him, it ends up horrible. Went 6+ hours before it popped once, and no drop. And that was only one time. Good luck everyone.

I went to get this with DRG/WHM,SAM/DNC,NIN/WAR and me as DRG/WAR. We killed the coeurls for like 50 min and Ose popped. It was an easy fight and he dropped the assault jerkin and ose whisker. I recommend trying to get this it's definetely worth it.

Ah yes, the assault jerkin can be an elusive piece of equipment. I remember when I was in a pt there killing tomaras or w/e, we made an alliance to kill it. I, RDM 50+ won it >_> Much later a very good friend of mine wanted one for her RDM, we checked the pop location and lo and behold, Ose was there. We just duoed it with our BLM 2x, and of course got her the jerkin ;D

Good luck!

Ok I've got to be on some sort of record here, currently 0/12. I've camped this guy straight for a week now, only lost claim to 2 groups, BOTH times they got the drop... WTF is up with this. Is there some weird drop rate conditions?

Update, now 0/17 on this guy .... SE hates me...

Edited, Dec 24th 2007 6:36am by saevellakshmi

Updated yet again after most recent fight ... 0/18 ...

I got my Assault Jerkin today. I am 1/2 on this sucker. Both times I camped this NM it took him 2 1/2 hours to spawn. First time I camped him I had a pt of DRG(me), NIN, RDM, RNG, BRD, WHM. Second time, I had a pt of 2 DRGs, NIN, THF, RDM. It was probably because of the THF the reason I was able to get the Jerkin on my second attempt, but then again it could be a coincidence.

But either way, I'm happy to get it =). I would like to thank Embem, Nadesico, Bozzar, and Slimdelgado for helping me out ^_^

I've been having a rough time in my attempts to gather together a group of people that would be willing (since I hate forcing people to do something that they honestly would rather not be doing) to sit around for a few hours and help me camp this cat.

If anyone on Midgarsormr is looking to get this particular item, maybe we can work something out. Drop me a tell in-game (Feiya - 72DRG/36SAM) and hopefully we can get a Ose party going on so that everyone will eventually walk away with their very own Assault Jerkin ^^

1/1 on this sucker. Friends and I have been camping NMs for each other for fun (out of boredom). It was my turn to pick one. :) Ran down to the Ose room. An /anon and afk 75 NIN was in the tunnel leading to the room as well as a party of 6 poorly geared /anon /unlinkshelled melee job Mithras EXPing. (HmmmMMmmm...)

Had my girlfriend 75 PLD, my bud 75 BLM and I 75 RDM and we just started offing the Toramas. They were DC to me; we killed all of them clearing the room of them. Offed a few gobs while waiting for the repops.

After our 2nd or 3rd repop kill, the next one was Ose! He popped on the other side of the room. Ran over into Dia range and fired off, GF provoked right behind me. Ran it back to our tunnel and started working on him.

This sucker has A LOT of HP. BLM friend landed 2 unresisted Burst 2's and 1 Freeze 2 and it was still kicking. He wasn't hitting very hard on the PLD; I kept Phalanx 2 on her (merited 2 points into it). She kept hate while I debuffed and cured status and the BLM nuked. BLM ended up Manafonting because he was tired of waiting for MP to regen, Thunder 4 and Thundaga 3 ended it.

Assault Jerkin dropped as well as 2000g and Ose Whisker. Now my RDM has some shiny (Or leathery?) new Melee gear to add to his ******** ^^

Edit: I think the graphic of this armor has been updated in game. Mine looks different from the one worn in the posted pic.

1/2 on Jerkin
# Oct 01 2007 at 9:58 AM Rating: Decent
Got him duo as NIN with an RDM friend, first time we were killing placeholders and a THF & RDM duo turn up and just sit in the room with invisible up ready to poach claim. When Ose eventually pops I voke claim him - which could have been rough considering there was another Torama next to me. Anyway, the claim was clean (or lucky depending on your viewpoint!) and I pull him back to the tunnel, the two hang around hoping we will die, we don't but sadly no drop.

Second time we came back about 3 hours after the above ToD and are alone the entire time so its an easy sweep and clear of Toramas and when Ose pops we are able to just leave him sitting around whilst the RDM rests up on MP. We pull him back and the fight runs smoothly up until about 12% hp where a Manticore decides to stomp on over from halfway across the room! After a bit of grevious bodily harm on me, the RDM manages to make sleep stick (luckily no riddle gets off) and we proceed to nailing the cat and luckily Jerkin drops this time, a quick celebration before pounding down the Manticore. Both were very fun fights, just keep enfeebles stuck and watch for Ose calling in the heavies!

im a rdm,i sub blm when i solo,im what is called a stoneskin/icespikes tank.i want the mob to hit me,not miss.so sh isnt so good 4 me.mayb if i needed nin to solo,but i dont so...

unfortunatly im 0/9 on this.nothing is better for my style of play when i solo,other than a dalmy ,and ill never have that.this can be solo'd. as long as its far away,but if it does hit me...might hurt it more than me...

bring echo drops to this fight,and prepare to convert way ahead.since it has some nasty moves,that will mess with your schedual of spells.

0/9 for me 1/1 with thf 2 for him :(,im going in again it better drop for me.if i go 0/10 im gonna cry.

y solo nm?cuz im red and i can,rdm power is only limited by us.or by you making us go to the back.
a dream come true...

very wierd thing, im PLing my g/f atm as a drg and i thought she may need to gte an assault jerkin at some point, well that night i went to bed and had a dream about camping Ose... wierd because i never did it before, 2 days later i finish LS event and i ask if anyone wannts to camp ose, cos i kept thinking about that dream. well they agreed and we went to csmp it for 3hours until it popped, i pulled and took about 5-10 mins to kill, i got ose whisker AND assault jerkin! 1/1 on him now then ^^, guess that dream was urging me to go get it P
One more piece of endgame done!

Finally got the gumption to rally the troops for my Ose run...after 2 hours my help is getting ready to leave so do one last run around and sure enough there he is. Help was a 75 Blm and 75 Brd (I am 74 thf). Got pull and blm and brd set to sleep nuking it. After about 5 minutes Ose goes down and Jerkin drops along with Ose whisker and lightning crystal. 1/1!

While this may not be an uber piece for most jobs that can wear it, it is an awesome piece for thf (after dagger merits when accuracy is not as much of an issue) in search of more attack. As for the comment below about the merits of Dragon Harness for SATA and WS...I agree..it is better...Once I have it I intend to macro it in for ws...attack helps with thief traditionally lacking DoT so AJ will be in my TP build. When fighting Gods I need all the attack I can get...

Special thanks to the Latent Effect crew in general and to Freebytes and Paperstarz specifically!

Well camped this guy for the passed 2 weeks and went 3/3 on em, not bad at all. First time I was 65 bst with a 72 bst.. I used carrie to keep claim, he used toramas, went well after the first round of deaths ^^. Second time, I was 71bst with a thf (75) and another 74 bst. Easy as pie just charmed two Toramas here and there and watched it die. 3rd time, I was 73 bst and practically solo'ed it, but had a thf and nin help me once it hit 35% HP. Reason I didn't want their help earlier is my lack of mp as galkan to paralyna the NIN. Other than that, this mob is easily soloable to a 72-73 + bst. Biggest thing I recommend as mentionned before, keep the blinks and the stoneskins up as he is extremely fast.

Anyhow, good luck to all who hunt me, bs luck I guess that we went 3/3.

I just got my AJ last night (Thanks Gorthor & CDOG - TBC).

There are better body pieces in the game for sure. Kirin Osode is generally known as the "leet" piece, and there are still body pieces better than it. Does it make it overrated....no. It makes it kick-*** piece of body armor that you get for free with the help of friends, and lady luck. Jobs like THF, DRG, BLU, RDM, BST, and even a melee BRD benefit from it.

its not necessarily an item to say o wow its the best. its a free drop off a nm a lvl 75 can solo. so take those millions from hauby since you have a free chest peice thats still not awful in any way(just not near the best) and upgrade your other gear. Now if you have literally the best things u can in all your other slots then yes stray away from this if possible, but losing some stats for the att and being able to upgrade that 5 str and dex with acc in other peices could = out to getting more than a hauby. the one peice itself may not sustain prestige but look overall on it. the word free just sticks to mind :P
# Jul 12 2006 at 3:25 AM Rating: Decent
Honestly, I still cant understand why so many people see this as such a sought after item. I believe this is one of the most overrated items in the game, and there are so many betetr items you could be using.

as a 75 war and 75 RDM, I'd liek to go through some other gear here. If you're a DD job and in a party (instead of Haubergeon or Hauberk), you are giving up 5 STR, 5 Dex, and 7 accuracy, just to get 8 more attack(haubergeon and hauberk have +10). Is it worth it? Well, with berserk up, most wars have well over 600 attack as long as they have other good gear at 75. so will 8 attack matter, especially if you're giving up all that acc, str and dex? I sure hope you dont think it does @.@

Ok, so lets go to other jobs, like RDM... I hear that it's good for a lot of jobs to solo in, especially RDM. Well, as RDM/DRK, your attack should be around 400 with good DD gear and capped sword. An extra 18 attack sounds kidn of nice, but still wont make a significant difference, and once again, think about what you're giving up. As rdm, I solo in SH, and I would rather get hit a lot less and land more blows, especially with vorpal blade, than hit for another 2-5 dmg per hit (if that) using this jerkin. The less you get hit, the less you have to rebuff, and the less time you spend rebuffing, the more time you spend swinging your sword and doing damage to the mob! Which is why I'nm nto very fond of rdm/nin btw, you spend more time recastign utsusemei than actually meleeing, which is fine if you plan to win a fight with nothing but DoT spells @.@ Fun... Anyway, I'd still much ratehr use SH for bard, and most other jobs that can use both if I to solo.

Some say it's great for thf, and I suppose it's not TOO bad, but Dragon harness is MUCH better. AGL is a direct multiplier to TRICK attack, and DEX is to SNEAK attack, and you're giving up those bonuses for this, not to mention the acc/evasion you coudl also get from SH that you lose by wearing this. In short, I just really dont think enough people think about what they are givign up by wearing this, or how much of an impact 18 extra attack can actually make. And... why, if this is so great, shouldnt the sword belt +1 fetch a small forune, instead of 20-50K on most servers? Food for thought...

BLU can't wear Hauberk, RDM can't wear Hauberk, Bard can't wear Hauberk, THF can't wear Hauberk. This piece of armor is useful for certain occassions, If you were fighting as THF against a God or HNM, you'd give up a little acc so that your damage can be more than 0 per hit, otherwise you'll gain no TP. Especially if you eat sushi. By the way, RDM has ****** evasion skill to begin with, to concentrate evasion on RDM is a waste of item slot, I'm sorry to tell you but +10 eva on RDM makes almost no difference when fighting even a Decent Challenge mob, and the +10 ACC is nice, but you eat a sushi and you'll hardly notice the difference as RDM, because RDM has no concentrated skill, you have to go to an extreme to really notice a difference, and if you're fighting weak mobs that you are about to farm, they are probably gonna miss you or hit you for ****** damage anyway so there again +10 Evasion on RDM matters very little. Scorpion Harness is a nice piece of armor, I like using it, but I have Assault Jerkin too for farming as RDM and Tanking as RDM/NIN, you need all the hate u can get, and again, sushi is the best ACC you can get, it should be the only food you eat when meleeing as RDM, you eat attack food and you'll miss 70% of the time, it doesn't sound like you have much experience fighting HNMs, Gods, or soloing NMs by yourself as RDM, it sounds more like you're making an excuse to make yourself feel better about not being able to get this piece of armor for yourself :) And by the way, to those who are broke, a free piece of armor is all they need. You shouldn't use AJ as warrior if you have a Hauberk, duh.... But to those who can't wear anything that boosts good melee combat this is a decent piece. I have a Kirin Osode and a Scorpion Harness and my BLU's AF body, but my RDM has can't wear Osode, and SH is best suited for a NIN tank or like I said, just because you have an Assault Jerkin doesn't mean you are obligated to use it ALL the time and never be able to use something else for certain occassions. It's called MACROS, get it right ok? AJ has +3 acc, SH only has +7 more, that lessens the difference if you're using it as RDM or BRD, especially if you are farming weak mobs, or fighting IT+

This is very usefull for a thf to mele in. Those who cant yet eat meat, anyone under lvl 75 really, benifits from this. I eat suchi, and on WS like Dancing Edge and Evisceration, you need all the attack you can get. I would gladly lose the 10 accuracy for a crapload of attack. Sushi + acc in other gear slots makes SH expendable. For TP gain, and for SA/TA Dancing Edge, or Evisceration, this rules. You simple swap out SH and AJ when doing a solo SA/TA or Sharkbite. This is a very nice piece of gear if you know what to do with it.
# Sep 29 2006 at 3:39 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah dude... Drg get nothing as far as equip. Not to mention you could macro this in and out when you're looking for higher attack. I get a little upset when i see non dragoons camping this because it really is our only decent chest piece. Scorpion Harness is nice and all, but i have enough accuracy with sushi and the rest of my gear anyhow.

and not to go off on a rant but people with +50 accuracy need to wise up and find the line in the middle where you are still hitting for close to 100% and maximize your damage per connection.

Of course there's better stuff. But it's hard to be overrated when it's free and has these stats. How much does SH cost? How much more time would it take to farm/craft/fish for gil, than it would to camp this? Not everyone has the gil to spend on (or even want to spend much gil on) soloing gear.

Overrated? No. Best body gear for RDM (for example, since I am)? No. Worth camping it? Yes.
