*Vilma's Ring is an 8.4% drop from the Rose Garden NM.

The Overgrown Rose (I-7 Yuhtunga Jungle) mob must remain untouched and *not get aggroed for 9-12 hours.

If these conditions are met, it will spawn. It has to.

This mob is Lv50, detects by Sound, and is weak to fire. So use enfire if you can.

75 anything can solo this mob. I recommend a job /ninja because it does hit fairly hard. **BRING ECHO DROPS. Bad Breath will kill you.

Is this ring worth the trouble?

Well, If you have time on your hands and want it, then yes. It's a solid rich like Serene Ring w/o the -enmity.

I could see using this ring at 75 for multiple jobs.

Anyone who whines about his NM is retarted. Crying about it will not get you Vilma's ring. Camping it will. So just do it. You'll get it eventually.

Lol oh yeah, and Vivian Ring. Good luck with that. 0/22.
1/1 very very lucky

OK Let's first start by saying this... Voluptuous Vilma does exist!!!! There is no mistaking this, I promise. As most of you know it takes 9-12 hours for Rose Garden to spawn. The same rule applies about agroing and claiming overgrown rose to spawn Rose Garden. So if someone agros or claims Rose Garden, then V.Vilma timer is reset. It takes 21-24 hours after Rose Garden spawns to respawn into V.Vilma, without anyone agroing or claiming Rose Garden.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM and REASON NO ONE HAS SEEN IT ON MOST SERVERS. EVERYONE claims rose garden as soon as they see it... hoping for a ring that is very low drop rate.... congrats to you all who are 1/1 cause im 0/4 with TH4 anyway.... V.Vilma is a 100% drop rate of the Vilma's ring. So if ppl learn some patience on our servers then we will see V.Vilma..... good luck and fun camping!!!!


I just used a hex editor to view my DAT's, ROM2\13\99.dat, Voluptuous Vilma does exist!!! Here is my screenshot and i used paint to circle the names, other than that everything is original in my screenshot!!!

They need to add Voluptuous Vilma as a NM on here.

Firstly id like to know if anyone has has any info at all regarding the drop rate of Vilma's Ring with TH. I personally am 0/4 atm with TH3 so i have doubts about its effects but am managing to kill it every 9-12 so i hope it wont be too long till it drops.

Secondly, not that i would expect many ppl with info on this bbbuutt does anyone have any idea on the Rose Garden to Voluptuous Vilma time? Is it possibley the same 9-12hrs or would it be alot longer and reason for its very rare sightings?

Anyways, thx in advance for any info left and gl to anyway camping this also, it will be worth it in the end ^^b

well ill start with an apology lol maybe a month ago this ninja (myself) ran through the yuhtunga jungle and had never heard of rose garden and i saw this overgrown rose and thought ah what the hell used my last shurikan on it. moments later i had 3 tells saying wtf? and words to that effect and i was like oh ummm sorry (felt like an idiot) but i did give em each 10k as an apology and they seemed cool with it.

anyways upon checking the internet after above event ive decided i want this ring and have been camping for the odd hour hre and there whilst seeking parties. havent got lucky and seen it yet but i usually just camp while seeking. if i get an invite ill leave and party. figure its better than sitting on my *** all day to have someone beat me to claim and annoy me even more. oh well heres hoping i get lucky soon

No Voulutous Vilma is the Second Transformation Of Rose Garden isnt Killed!
Rose Garden
# Jul 22 2006 at 10:44 AM Rating: Decent
Typing this WHILE Miyaji and Miyavi are killing the Rose Garden. We have confirmed EnderWiggam's method of spawning this creature. The following is a link to the page that has it posted, currently the second post down.

No one on our server has seen the Voluptous Vilma, though the Rose Garden is very much confirmed. It appears to have a very low drop rate. A pair of Japanese campers the Miys made friends with are 0/20 for the ring. (They were very concerned when the Miys came to camp it, but they've worked it out now.)

Voluptous Vivian is also confirmed at the Boyahda Tree. I think perhaps these two have gotten confused. As to the pictures of a Voluptous Vilma... perhaps it is named differently on Japanese screens? Who knows.

A Further note. http://www.ffxi-atlas.com/nav/?act=show&id=yuhtunga_jungle this is a link to FFXI-Atlas 's map of Yuhtunga Jungle. if you click on "Show" next to " Show | Hide NM" under Display on the right side bar, it will show you where the NM's in Yuhtunga spawn. There is only ONE PLACEHOLDER in the area shown on that map.

I hope this helps someone. <3

Bear in mind this was on the 360 BETA server before i get a grilling.

I was around lvl 31, in party of 6 on our choccos to Yhoator. as we were passing the "Big round depressed area, with a log bridge over it" i noticed a malbro in a odd location, already claimed by a 69BST (yes, a lvl 69 on the BETA ><). "Viliptuous Vilma".

It was right in the middle of our path, which seemed odd as the malbros in that area usually spawn at the bottom of the depression, and we were on the narrow path above. using my /party <t> sighted! command the "OMG"s came out thick and fast. Anyway, somehow the BST died, not too sure how as he was behind the 'bro as we were seeing it. then we get the custimary lets raise him blah blah but after being promptly reminded this NM is rare we retreat to a safer area leaving the RDM to pull (dont ask).
Lets just say even with the inevitable 1 hit kills it was closer than you would expect but no cigar, another party then got it (it must have had less than 100 HP left, you couldnt see any visible health on the bar when we started at it)
The BST was a japaneese player who whipped out a few "{so whats the battle plan?}{run away}" auto translations. Overall well worth a few hundred exp loss, i take it the other party got the 100% drop.

Yes, it was 100% sure Voluptuous Vilma i saw. it was 360 BETA FFS, no one even knew what Valkurm Emperor was, let alone try to claim it. it was only somehting to be scared of and kill your valkurm EXP.

I'm guessing it is a spawn after many, many hours of unclaimed rose garden. its amazing how much you can learn about NM behaviour from being on noob server for a month ^^

your story is riddled with confusing twists and turns. What the hell is a viliptuous vilma and how did it get ahold of rose gardens drop? Are you talking about Voluptuous Vivian? Who spawns in Boyahda tree? I'm so confused.
# Jul 10 2006 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
i think he means "Voluptuous Vilma" From what I've been reading theres a small chance of Rose Garden changeing into this NM
Voluptuous Vilma
# Feb 13 2006 at 2:40 AM Rating: Decent
i was told this while killing rose garden and my mouth fell open once i saw these pics cause until i did i didnt want to believe it


ok lets start like this 9-12 hours of nothing touching overgrown rose = rose garden so if we can lets try and let rose garden sit unclaimed for 9-12 hours and see if Voluptuous Vilma pops from what i can make out vilma ring is 100% drop off of vilma

If you have trouble reading this go to google.com and paste the url there. Some of the translations made me laugh.

There is no Voluptuous Vilma in the hex number reader (atleast it didn't show up for me)
0/8 on ring drop
# Jan 27 2006 at 3:02 AM Rating: Decent
K well heres the Gods honest for ya:
Overgrown rose has to be unkilled (im not sure if some1 begins to hit it, or agros, zones, when it dissapear/reapear counts) iv seen as quick as 10 hours from last one killed , just like dudes video of the despawn, respawn as NM.

just dont kill overgrowns, its that simple, Ive killed 8 no drop yet.

What will truly blow your minds is this:
google Voluptous Vilma, see what some jp have posted on thier LS websites reguarding this,
Overgrown Rose untouched for <long time> = Rose Garden

Rose Garden untouched for <long time> = Volutous Vilma
if this is true id bet all my gil vilma drops hell of alot more often, thing is, how u gonna stop some random person from not jumping all over rose garden, to test this ; ;

does anyone actually know for sure how it spawns??
# Jan 18 2006 at 10:34 AM Rating: Decent
I am reading all these posts and from what i see, the details of how it spawns are all very different, I was out on the jungle yesterday with a bard and whm to camp it and followed the instructions posted on this forum, NOTHING. This nm sux, and the drop rate is rare, why does S.E. have to make things sooo HARDDD >.>
Claimed it! No campers o.O

Was on my way to kill lizards / level NPC when loh an behold!, there's it was.

I wasn't sure about it's level, so I came to Alla and checked things out.

NO ONE was camping this thing, and I had my NPC and avatars right at hand, so I went for it.

Used Ifrit, killed the thing in less than 5 mins...but.. nothing dropped.

Oh well, maybe next time! This ring would be nice, then I could sell my Astral ^^

Rose Garden
# Oct 27 2005 at 1:54 PM Rating: Decent
One of my LS members spotted Rose Garden on her way to Yhoator Jungle with a party. She didn't want to leave her party cuz it would be rude so she told the LS lol. Of course I came as fast as I can and 2 other LS members came before I knew. I was only thinking about if it was claimed or not so without thinking I claimed it as 61 WHM instead of my 73 BLM. I was getting my *** beat and the other 2 said that they'd help me, but that the BLM could lot it as well if it dropped. So I was fine with that, and sure enough the ring drops and I won lot. ^^

Ok so i saw this and in was aww and wanted it badly so i asked for some help.. well i found out from posts people say "it took me 55mins" and other saying "i'm on my 74 hour camping"

I beleive this NM has maybe 2 or 3 placeholders
There are about 8 in the jungle 2 including neer ifirit's zone neer waterfall (secret exit).

The reason it takes people 72 hours is because some1 probly came along killed that placeholder and it spawned in your area i also heard rumers only spawns on water element out

-if any1 has alot of friends and finds all locations where placeholders pop and gets any info would be great i want this ring for my blm

I have now spent 75 hours in the jungle and haven't seen him. I literally did not leave the jungle - would afk standing in the middle of his area and check log when I got back - nothing. There has to be some other trick to making him show up...72 hours just doesn't seem to be it.

During my first visit to Kazham, and trying to find my way back as a level 27 Red Mage from Yuhtungha to Kazham I got smacked for about 400 points of damage by this thing while invisible.

So it definitely detects by sound. And it is aggressive. And it kicked my *****

Revenge will come one day, ladies and gentlemen, it will come.

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 13 2005 at 12:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not worth camping for. Seems to be a horrible drop rate, and a horrible pop time. What the hell was SE thinking when they made this stupid Malboro?
RE: Blah.
# Aug 14 2005 at 2:12 AM Rating: Default
ok the nm is lvl 55, the drop rate is terrable is because no one thinks really of camping it hence makingthe "drop rate impossable" you never know til you start hacking its plantiod *** with a fancy sword or scythe. the stats on it are fair, not totally the besti n the world but tehy are fancy, this stuff reminds me of the Archer's ring when it wasnt EX Everyone was like OMG isnt droping! well you never knew because the Gilseller stole it from under you. all online games requirework and time, diablo dont count because everyone duped lol, i had 45 grandfathers chilling before blizzard said hey.....that isnt kool the sum of what i am saying is dont say something is crappy just because you cant get it

This ring is so rare I don't even think its worth it frankly.

In the 40+ hours you spent looking for Rose Garden then losing the claim to the BST next to you, you could have farmed or BCNM for an Astral Ring.

Then bought a wisdom ring and saintly ring +1 and make an eq macro swap giving you +25 MP +3 INT +3 MND

# Dec 29 2006 at 12:59 AM Rating: Decent
I know this is a old post but that was just dumb even for when it was posted. The point of the ring is not the Hp>MP alone. The point of the ring is for the +1mnd/int/chr and 25HP>MP in ONE EQUIPMENT SLOT. Now if you had this ring and as you said a Wisdom and Saintly +1 rings macro swapped in then you would have 25 Hp>Mp, +4 int, +4mnd, and +1 chr instead of the +3 like you are saying is more worth it. This is like saying why camp for Serket's Ring when you could buy 2 Astrals. And no, not all people camp nms for gil, like most who camp serket. Alot of them, including myself, camp nms cause the nm drops something that will help out thier jobs. Although their is an extrodinary amount of work and patience involved in just getting it to pop without others interferring with the Overgrown Rose, it is well worth it to those willing to do it for the slight increase in stats they obtain from having it, not to mention the glory of being among the small percentage of players who actually own one.

This thing is like Bigfoot!
# Aug 07 2005 at 6:25 PM Rating: Default
This NM is bigfoot, you hear about him but you can't even prove he exists! seen a screenshot, and located the area that best looked like the picture, got 3 LS members farming too!

Im on hour 19.... non stop every 5minutes claiming another Rose.

Rose garden has to be more rare then seeing the Astral Signa drop.
RE: This thing is like Bigfoot!
# Nov 10 2005 at 12:50 AM Rating: Decent
Your problem is this: Rose Garden is a times spawn, up to 72 hours. But there is an easier way. When Overgrown Roses despawn, he might spawn in their place. If nobody is murdering the plants, he'll likely spawn in less than a day. It's also rumored it has to be raining.

I don't think this stupid Malboro will ever pop for me >.<
