got offered to take up an NM fight today dune widow but instead went into quicksands tunnel to find the Centurio X-I. I GOT THE SHAWMANS CLOAK drop FIRST TRY without THF job or sub. solo'd as beastmaster and 1 whitemage !!! so much for the drop rate of 1/11. although his casts of Blizzard III hit for over 500, watch out for that >.>

I'm hella exicted, cannot believe i got drop first try! what do you think of that
Fun fight 1/1
# Dec 29 2008 at 4:35 AM Rating: Decent
I was bored so I decided to drop by Quicksand. Went as 75NIN/37WAR(not a good idea lol). Not that I need the cloak since my only job that can equip it is RNG(75) lol.

Someone was camping there, but he left after 30mins or so. The NM pops 16mins later after I killed its PH.

Mistakes: #1. NIN/WAR no healing. #2 forgot to unequip my Bomb queen ring. Blaze Spikes > BQ ring lol got hurt from it badly, about 9-22HP/per total of 35x spikes. #3 forgot about its -ga spells. Firaga II 362DMG, Blizzaga II 405DMG. I have about 1500HP total and from that it went down to 28HP at the end of the fight. After Blizzaga II it used Shoulder Slam while I have no shadow. Good thing it missed and 2 more swings it died.

Drops: 40EXP
Antican Robe
Stonega II
Iron Ore
Mythril Ore
Shaman's Cloak ^^v

GLâ„¢ guys.
the luck of the irish

got the cloak 1/2 with th3. no problem soloing as thf75/nin, pretty easy if you clean the room first and time the respawns.

DRG52 here, looking for coffers to future-proof me after a fashion... With a THF75 mate I ended up in QSC for a good hour and a half looking for my key, and for some inexplicable reason the NM popped as we took a knee (I was /WHM, so DS Cure III went the THF's way, but that meant resting for my own HP and MP)

I got smacked by a Blizzaga II and went straight into the orange, though my mate had everything under control and somehow we ended up with a Shaman's Cloak that went to me (THF said he has one already).

I have no intention of levelling any of the jobs that can use it, and why would I? I'm a Galka, we don't do mages too well (I've tried)

At least Stone III sells for a five-figure sum, though I'm just totally perplexed by this piece of gear... why the hell did I get it and not someone who can actually put it to use?
temp. use

this would seem to b a temporary use, seeing as blm af hat is @ 60

Blu can also equip this piece, this should be changed to show that fact^^

Obtained the cloak today with THF71/NIN35 (TH3).

Just kept clearing the room of all Anticans till the NM popped. Called out my healer type npc, cast fresh set of shadows and engaged from max distance with ranged attack. Pulled NM to tunnel and started fighting.

First couple of spells it casted was bind, bio II which got interupted or landed on shadows. NPC managed to slow the NM. Then it casted Firaga II killing my npc and dropping me to like 150HP.

Managed to get shadows back up and just kept spamming bloody bolts and using dancing edge when I got tp. It casted quake and burst but those got negated by my shadows. Used 2hour in the end in order not to get killed from the accidental melee attack when shadows down.

Went down just on time (he started casting firaga II again).

Got cloak, stone IV, darksteel iro, iron ore and antican robe.

On to the next NM ^^

I didn't really kill the monster with thief because of the TH, but because it's the only job I could use to kill it (don't see myself killing that thing on my whm anytime soon). And as for droprate on NM items with or without TH... You would have to do extensive statistical analysis in order to make any valid argument about that. Fact for me is that I god several NM drops 1/1 while playing on my thf. Does this prove that TH works on NM drops? No, it doesn't. But it does mean that I'll camp my next NM on thf also. ^^

About the NPC... It's not high at all ^^; At the time of that fight it must have been around lvl36. ^^;

Ok, I'm sorry but I have to post this to you....

TH has never helped me or anyone else I know on NM drops, and when I duoed this NM with my 70 Sam/Thf friend we got the Cloak drop, and on my 5th solo attempt I got the Cloak. So please don't think that your TH was the factor on your drop, and please no one else think that it helps either. The only reason to sub Thf for an NM is for Flee, in case you have multiple spawn points that need to be checked quickly, like the Morion Worm. The better reasoning that you got the drop so quickly is that you are pretty damn close to this NM's level, and I have found that what level you are compared to the mob or NM is what truely effects your drop rate, regardless of what you think TH does for you. The closer your level to the mob or NM the better your drop rate will be, and the further you are from it's level the less likely you are to get a drop you want from a non-100% droprate NM, regardless of how much TH you have, matter of fact I have found TH hurts you on NM's as far as drop rates, and is why I won't sub Thf when trying to get a drop from a NM.

But I'm sorry to here about your NPC, especially since you're a 71 Thf so I assume your NPC should be pretty high. I have soloed this NM succesfully 5 times so far in the past 2 weeks as a 65 Drg/Whm with no NPC. But congrats on the drop. I just got mine last night and I'm a happy man, though I have no job close enough to equip it, seeing as how my highest jobs are 65 Drg/52 War/& 35 Blu, lol.

Hmm, ok I gotta start off this post by saying: Congratulations! Thats awesome that you have gotten your drop! :D

The next thing I feel compelled to say is that I disagree with your above statement. Since there are no hard facts to support your theory or mine on TH, we can safely just beg to differ on opinons. However, I have personally felt that TH helps with NM drops....but not in the way most people think. From what I have observed, more items have a chance of dropping when TH is engaged. This increases the chance for that rare drop since it can of course be one of the items the mob drops. A good example for me is Spini Spipi. I had the worst luck on this NM when the cape was selling for 150+K each. I had wanted it for my Summoner at the time, and I am the type who chooses to camp NMs instead of farming gil. Long story short, no TH all I would get is a silk. The first time I used TH, I got 2 silks all of a sudden....then later I got my cape alongside 2 silks. I am now sitting at 1/30 for drop, and I never want to see that crawler again!

To summarize, does TH guarantee you a drop? Nope. Does it help? I believe it does in the fact that it helps the overall drop rate (as opposed to individual item drop rate)....and flee helps too! SE wouldnt make an ability if it didnt work ;)

Well.. for me it only took 1 placeholder to spawn him.. This NM is just a completely random spawn. I have got him always at 15 minutes and 1 hour. Never any longer than that.
1/1 on Shamans Cloak
# Jan 17 2007 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
I just camped this for about an hour id say. There were a few repops of the blm antican. Then 2 popped back to back which we thought was odd. but then the next antican was the NM. Took down very easy. I had orginally planned on soloing the NM as 73PLD/36WAR but hads some friends join me. 75WHM 72RDM 62THF.
He went down fairly fast. Resisted Silence. Advice when he starts casting acient magic. Have someone hit him with Flat blade. First time camping it and i got my Shamans cloak 1/1. He also dropped Stonega III, Iron ore, darksteel ore. antican robe. Good Luck to those who try. His Position is H-9 and H-10.
Got one

Yesterday my buddy sent me a tell asking if I could help him with this NM. I tell him I can and Ill bring a friend or so to help incase I couldnt duo with him. He is a 55 BLM and I am a 72 SAM, and I brought along a 70 SAM.

He said most of the time you only have to go through 3-4 PH's (the Mage PH's), we went through 8 before it popped. I was about to fight a WAR ant when I saw Centurio cast a spell. We killed it with ease and got drop. My friend is like 1/5 on it but that was the first time I ever saw it so Im 1/1 with TH1.

Very nice cloak, would recomend it for any 56 BLM.
Centurio X-1? Bah...
# Oct 22 2006 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
Been trying to get this for about a month and everytime I get help they crap out cuz they dun wanna wait...

So anyways, a couple very nice LS members were bored and said lets go camp an NM. Hmmm. So I recommend Centurio as I want this Cloak. They say way too easy. Got to Quicksand Caves and they proceded to house all Anticans in the area including tunnels.

After a few minutes the sucka pops! I'm 64WHM/32BLM atm and squeeze off a Silence realizing that it resists it... DOH >.< Battle lasted about a couple minutes with the two LS members dipping in the red but i kept them alive. XD

Drops the Shaman's Cloak and a bunch of other things. 1/1 on the Cloak! =)
Thanks to my LS friends for helping. Now i can pimp this thing and be badazz...
Lucky day

After I finished with update (and a nap), I headed off to Quicksand caves to get myself a Tungi for my war. I'm runnin around as a 72 thf/nin lookin for the ??? to get the spawn item for that NM when I come across this guy. Nobody else is around so I quickly set myself up to try to take him. looking at his level here online and I figure this is probably a waste of my time but why not? That cloak looks sexy and RDM is prolly my next job to 70+ after war so...I pop my RR pin and get a clean pull into the south tunnel at H-11. Unfortunately I was too far away to get an interrupt on the -aga spell he launched so I started the fight down 700 or so hit points. Everything seems to be going pretty well following that and he's down to about 10% hp when again here comes the -aga...wiped me. It sucks fighting a mob when you only have 300 hp the whole fight.
So, I get back up rest and devise a new strategy. Put RR back on and call my NPC buddy. At this point a PLD comes running through and I think he's goin after the NM that deserves my vengeance. So I run up and catch aggro from the NM and draw it into the west tunnel. Got 1 link along with it. Got hit with Jamming Wave at about 50% hp left on NM and no echo drops in inventory...thought I was a goner for sure...but my trusty NPC buddy bailed me out and I got the kill with hp deep in the red. At one point I had 45 hp left and shadows were down. I cast Utsusemi and then the NM starts casting drain...timer was at 89% when drain went off and drain registered as being absorbed by a shadow! Anyway, very fun fight! Would have been easier without the link but I guess that goes without saying. Got the drop 1/1. After I killed the link and rested, the ??? for the pop item for tungi NM appeared in the room. Got my axe a little later after that...1/1 on that too. :)

Moon was at 98% full firesday. Good luck all!

Well when I finally managed to be in the right room I got the NM to pop in around an Hour's time.
Here are some details: I ES Sleep 2 at first to get my buffs back up, when I got claim on it, as waiting had let my buffs down. The mob to my amaizement actually resisted my sleep even with ES. So I'd say it's dang near impossible to sleep it. Also, I found that Gravity wasn't totally necessary because for the most part it will stand far from you and just cast away-meaning it will not melee you very much. I as a 75 BLM wtfpwnd this monster easily. I popped a yag drink in and went to town on it. A few T4s, one Burst2, and a smaller spell or so and it was dead. Biggest thing about this mob is you must stun it's AoE spells, and its AM(which it will cast). Other than this just watch out for links and a 75 BLM should be able to rape it. I killed it twice last night, neither time getting the cloak, but I did manage to get Stonega2 and Quake.

Also, a very good practice for you when killing the PH would be this: Try to kill the BLM PH(Antican Signifier) first without linking others of course. Then try to have all the others(only 2) spawn around where the NM will respawn, dead by around 8 minutes after the Signifier PH had died. If you manage to do this, you will undoubtedly have around 8 minutes clear time in which the other Anticans will not have popped already.GL, and good hunting!!!

Saw a friend with this thing and I knew I HAD to have it.

Brought a few LS friends to camp it with me. I was blm55 at that time.

When we got there the only person camping it was a 75 whm/nin. After a while 3 more people came in to camp it as well. Took about 2 kills of the PH before they warped out >.> About 3 PH kills later the whm warped out too, so we had the whole thing to ourselves. Finally popped, claimed it with Stun (rather slow I might add, I wasn't really worried XD). It was pretty easy for us, we had a pld, another blm, and me. both were 65+. We killed it but no drop ; ; Got ant pauldron and stonega3 though.

Came back the next day and there were 3 people there, a sam, same whm as last time, and a nin. This time I had a whm and brd friend helping me.

We didn't have to wait very long before it popped, fortunetly it popped right in front of me. The sam and whm ran for it immediatly but I hit my stun macro and got the claim. I literally almost **** myself. When I claimed it, BOTH of my friends were afk, so I began to panic. It was beating the living **** out of me when my brd friend came over and cured my ***. Then the whm came over and we all ganged up on it. At one point we thought we were screwed, cause he used silence and the whm had low mp before from fighting the other ants that were in the room. I got down to 45 HP, but we killed it. Dropped the robe, adaman ore, and Stonega2! I got the cloak but I let my friends have the other two drops, since I said that since they helped me out they could have them.

Turns out now I'm going to do BCNM 40 Under Observation with my LS friends, and now I really need Stonega2 >.> but it's 300k-400k on Fairy and I'm poor as ****. I asked if I could have the Stonega2 scroll from my friend that got it but he said he already used it on his blm >< Just my luck...

Anyway, this is a nice piece of gear, better than AF and the fugly Justacorps imo. Looks nice too, this thing will last me till Demon's Cloak.

i camped it for a whole day today and finally got it drop at 2:10AM lol i am 1/8 also got Quake scroll.

Just want to post some of my observations to help others if they want to camp this NM

The room will have 5 anticans, 2 pld 2 war and 1 blm. the blm antican signifier is the PH for the NM.

PH respawn time is roughly 6hr50min GAME TIME! So lets say you kill it at 10:00 game time, next spawn should be around 16:50 give or take some.

if you kill the PH each time it spawns, the NM has a chance to pop in 2hr - 2.5hrs real life time.

for me, the NM seems to be always spawning in the west portion of the room.
in ur face Aeglos !

just wanna say thanx to Eol and Mistree for their help. We were in quicksands just lvlin our Adverturing Fellows when i said we should check the spawn for the cloak. We get there and theres a few ants we wipe them and a few spiders while 2 other payers were looking on, go to little room next door and clear it. come back and nuthing has spawned the 2 other players had left so as thins start poping 1 by 1 we go about killing them, clear the room again when i say wheres the signifier...he never poped. We go on to the next spider start attackin when Eol says "brb gettin a drink" no big deal. then u no what happens Centurio X-I pops right next to us. Mistree and I jump on it leaving Eol to finish off the spider while he is AFK. Centurio was a little tougher than expected so a few <call>s and nuthin from Eol. Then it happens Eol returns jumps into the frey and then zzzzz. Tree gets killed by an AoE that i couldent stun and delvls, Eol is in the red. I wake give him a few cures and we kill the Suckka. I got cloak and Antican robe and an iron ore, Tree got the stonga2 for dying and Eol got his Treasure Coffer eariler so he was happy...............
But do i wear this or my Black cloak ??????

Thanks again Eol (70 WAR) and Mistree (54 THF...now 53>.<)
u guys r the best
