I'm so glad I'm a tarutaru. We can wear anything and it looks wicked. ^_-

We just did this for most of our melee in LS. hehe looks cool when all the monks samurai and even paladin have it at a HNM fight ;) Hakutaku is a very hard NM. We had a full alliance with all members around 70-75 cept for me 65 whm at time. as long as the whm in alliance have main tanks locked on you should be ok. Might also be a good idea just to make your cure macros say tanks name for quick and easy healing. I had Cure IV set to tanks name and worked very well. Just cured others with cure III and II when aggro was lost... very long fight about 15-30 min to kill. Also you must wait about 15 min after death to trade cluster to ??? again. Took us about a hour or so to get 5-6 hats. So glad it's a given drop each time ;)
Well good luck

15-30 minute fight, 15 minute cool-off after every fight, and you did 5-6 in an hour?



i'll have to go around getting all the stuff since we are planning on doing this NM this weekend.

Its RARE/EX meaning you can't sell it, trade it, send it, or have more them one.

Hey we should put in a new hat for high levels!

Yeah let's make it super overpowered with no downside, so it clearly MUST be the hat to be worn by all serious melee.

Sounds cool, if so many people will be wearing it, it must look good right?

For sure, let's give it the model and style of a low level pos fugly mage hat.

Great idea, implement it asap.

This hat seriously is the ugliest thing I have seen in a while. I dread wearing it.

if it was somethin like Optical Hairpin, that'd be neat.

I was able to defeat the NM with an alliance of 12 lvl 75's. 2 blms alternated stuns, and the tank was a ninja who popped down blind potions (with the earrings), and tanked it backwards. (to prevent the paralyze).

Well, anyone who spends 700k on the eyes must be -extremely- lazy.

Dodomeki - Ifrit's Cauldron, drops the Damp Hakutaku Eye

Blubber Eyes - Sea Serpent Grotto, drops the Earthen Hakutaku Eye

Thousand Eyes - King Ranperre's Tomb, drops the Burning Hakutaku Eye

Mindgazer - Sea Serpent Grotto, behind the Ornamental Door, drops the Golden Hakutaku Eye

Million Eyes - Den of Rancor, drops the Wooden Hakutaku Eye

You can easily farm all of the eyes needed within a day or two, with the help from a couple friends on the harder ones.

Just to let you guys know, after u get all the eyes, you have to find a high lvl Alchemist to make the Hakutaku Eye Cluster to spawn the NM

The problem is that if you're a red mage it's hard to get people to help you do anything to acquire melee gear... it's hard enough to get people to help to do other stuff :(.

On siren the eyes to spawn this thing cost you up to 700k. Someone I know tried to beat it but supposidly their alliance got raped. Thats a **** load of money to spend to get raped. I wish i just had that much.

I saw somebody who looked like a blackmage run by, and i examined him... He was wearing this hat. But what really threw me off, was that he was a ninja, and he looked like a friggin black mage!

you need a full alliance of lvl 74~ people to kill that NM
he spawns in rancors den, sea serpend grotto, ifrit cauldron, and somewhere in ro'maeve i think

its a 100% drop and a fight takes about 40 minute

He's in the Den of Rancor. The fight only takes about 10-15 minutes if you have about 4-6 black mages in your alliance.
optical hat!

i cant believ there were no posts on thid item. this is one of the most highly sought after head items on my server. acc +10 range acc +10 eva +10. must have for a rng. most other melee classes drool over this. and it's ex + rare. so you can only "obtain it" not for sale or trade

ya, it most certainly is a very nice item. It's everything you love about the emperor's hairpin without any of the draw backs. I've never seen anyone with this on though, and generally i try to check the gear of any high-level rangers i see, just to know what's out there. But, i can also guess that it's really hard to get ahold of.
