BST Soloable!

A 40+ Bst can solo this drop (at the rate of 2 kills per 2 hours lol, a bst uses their 2hr ability to kill these IT mobs). So if you have a bst friend who wouldn't mind devoting the time to you, you can ask for some help. Otherwise you can do what I did - and that's lvl bst up to 40 yourself so you can just go and get your own.
That might seem like a drastic measure just to get one item, but having bst at 40 is extremely useful in any case, especially for BCNMs (there are some BCNMs 20 and 40 which are extremely bst friendly and even bst-soloable). PLus lvling bst is really fun, I rather enjoyed it :)

So just thought I'd throw that out there as another option for getting this, if getting a subligar raiding group together is a real pain.
In fact I got the Virgo Subligar 1/1 when I killed the Fomor Ranger for fun while trying to solo the Fomor Beastmaster for my BRD's Gaudy Harness :) Pretty useless to me seeing as my rng is lvl1 and my cor isn't even unlocked. OH WELL.

Good luck!!

COR can now equip this, as well as the Virgo Subligar.

Could anyone pinpoint precisely in which room the Elvaan RNG pops? I saw a map of the fomors somewhere but there were at least two or more RNG fomor spawn points on it...also, it seems that some fomors are solo and some in pt? Do they all link anyway? What is the meaning of "in party" when it comes to fomors, specifically?

I might try and solo this if possible at all. Even if it means buying a bunch of potions and elixirs or whatever. I've been asking friends for help on this for weeks but the ones that could are too much of a ***** to go there.

The RNG that's in a party is with a sam,nin and drk. Not all fomors are in parties. But the ones that are all come when u pull one of them. There is a solo blm and a solo mnk that pops in that same room also,but they wont link when you pull the party. There is also another room that has a solo ranger in it. But he takes turns spawning with a thf. That rng is in a room that also has a solo drg,nin and bst. The spawn times are fairly fast,I believe about 5-8 minutes. Also the fomors agro to sound. If you look at the map you are talking about you should see which ranger is the solo one,the one thats in the room that bst spawns in.
COR, maybe?

Can anyone confirm one way or another whether or not corsair will be able to equip this aketon, or the rapparee harness? I wouldn't mind having either for my new main job...

You have to have a subligaria to get this in the quest which is obtained in Phomiuna which requires you to have completed "The Mother Crystals" AKA Promy.
# May 11 2006 at 4:00 PM Rating: Decent
Do you have to complete Promys to get this? I've never done promys and I really don't want to, but I want this.

Yes, you have to have passed the three main promyvions (Mea, Holla, and Dem). Once you've passed all three, you'll be free to do more CoP missions, but you don't have to do any more to get into Phomiuna Aqueducts, where the item needed to get this aketon is dropped.

I know, this reply is a little late.

I saw one of my LS buds wearing this the last night and i was like o.O, I need to get me one o them! So the next day i devoted just to subligar runs and after hours of losing the Virgo subs to other lots, I FINALLY got mine adn proptly got my Aketon^^ Very much worth it =D

is this worth it? YES!!!!!

i just got mine today finally ;; best bit of kit for a rng and best of all, ITS FREE!!

makes a change in this uber expensive job ;;
# Jun 23 2005 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
Okay... to get the subligar for this you need to kill the solo rng (12 minute re-spawn) in the same room as bst, nin, and drg.

His drop rate isnt UBER, but... not horrible either. He's a cake walk to kill to be honest.

Had 3 rng's pop in a row, an all 3 of them dropped... of course another time I went it popped RNG (no drop), thf, thf, thf, thf, RNG (no drop).

They also drop balloon cloths for the Gobbie Bag VI quest (aswell as the thf's).

But in any case... this JSE looks wicked... an will be amazing to wear from 50-58, and then even from 70+ will/can be good.

...it's a bit of a pain in the butt getting the subligar from Phomiuna Aqueducts. If you plan on getting your virgo subligar, keep in mind that the elvaan RNG (solo, in same room as NIN, BST and DRG. Also pops as THF in place of RNG sometimes) will drop it.

The Hume RNG will not drop this subligar.

A party of four can easily take the solo fomor.

Good luck.

Thank you, I wish I had read your post more carefully before attempting to get a RNG subligar with my LS members last night.

We were killing the Hume Fomor mostly, but in the process managed to get quite alot of other subligars. All but the RNG's! /cry

So, just to highlight it for any RNGs who are like me and who really want a Shikaree aketon:

The Hume RNG will not drop this subligar, only the Elvaan RNG will.

ok this is really easy to get if u have beaten promy's, or atleast it was for me. hardest thing is finding enought people to go and get the damn things killed w/o having to worry about near death situations. ok heres my story:
Promy's: about 70-100k for items and ammo, took 3 days to beat them doin 1 a day, for mea: Smn, Smn, Rng, War, War, Whm - Dem: Smn, Rng, War, War, Whm, Smn - Holla (over kill) Smn, Smn, Smn, Rng, War, Whm. the trick to beating promys is taking time to farm anima, dem is {Too weak.} and can be done w/o them but mea & holla are a must. once u finish them off getting people together to get this is the hard part. took me maybe a hour to get a 17 person alliance together and get movin. we went in for the CoP mission after promy's and for some subligar drops. killed about 10 Fomor and got all drops each time, we had 2 Thf's with us so maybe thats the trick. 2nd Rng dropped the subligar and i got my JSE...now to go back and get my Rdm and Sam's...cant wait /tell Veyron on Garuda if u need help

65Sam Af1 {o} Af2 {o} Af3 {o} Af4 {o} Af5 {x} Af6{o} Haubergeon: {O}

57Rng Af1 {o} Af2 {o} Af3 {o} Af4 {o} Af5 {x} Af6{x}
this thing rocks

between about level 50 and when you get your hunter jerkin you run into some racc problems. if you dont plan on using food, youll have to squeeze as much +racc gear as you can and use your noct. ive been using this with gun and the whole slug shot -> barrage -> slug shot deal will own. as long as the pld knows to use cover so you can recast shadows, you should have it killed faster than it can deal any major damage.
solo Fomor RNG
# Apr 08 2005 at 10:18 AM Rating: Decent
I went the other night and with 3xRNG and 1 WHM, we only got one RNG subligar and I lost lot by 30. I was bored yesterday so I went down there and solo'd the Fomor RNG, used 1 x-pot. Wasn't too bad, but did have a tad bit of luck on a parry while casting shadows. Ranged attk him and recast shadows until he runs up, then Piercing Arrow -> EES -> Barrage -> had tp for another WS, but he fell.

oh, and no drop :/

edit: Don't try this unless you are willing to die. :P

I disagree...

We killed a BUNCH of Fomor last night for about 2 hours. We ended up getting 2 BST, 2 NIN, 2 THF... And we needed 2 RNG. And yes, we were killing Elvaans... The drop rate isn't so great >.<

Ok Listen up there are 2 types of Fomor Rangers. Hume and Elvaan....ELVAAN RNG ONLY DROP VIRGO SUBLIGAR. The humes will not so you ppl who have been camping 25+ kills are killing the wrong ones. Last nite i went twice each time with 4 RNGs and we all got subligar and could have got more. The elvaan RNG is a placeholder for the THF(gemini subligar) so you may see RNG then THF etc. But the drop rate is really not too bad on these
the truth

not only that the quest giver might make you wear a piece of 35-60 gear for the first part of the quest, meaning you may have to wait till level 60.

good thing i have blm that high =) I just need that dam virgo subligear now
looks like a war aketon
# Jan 04 2005 at 11:07 AM Rating: Excellent
for best drops I hear that going through that door where u need to either open with a key or have a thf pick it is the way to go.

This 50 rng body looks just like a war aketon to me.
Drop rate
# Dec 28 2004 at 2:55 AM Rating: Decent
Well I just spent 8 hours in the Aquaducts ,and not a singles RNG subligar dropped . We must have had 25 other subligars from most other jobs , but not even 1 RNG . The Fomor RNGs did drop balloon cloth for you RNGs wanting to do the Gobbiebag VI quest .

I did manage to obtain a RDM subligar and will get that piece , since my RDM is 66 , but I doubt I will wear it much , other then BCNM or a CoP capped mission .
lol jitterbug
