OK one tip to all the potential people going after this, people can and will MPK you over this mob. During one run, my party had popped and claimed this mob freely. We had a few links from me spamming bar-spells and were working on keeping them all slept, when one of them wakes up. Red Mage, doin what he does best casts sleep II and sticks it, when the mob wakes up 2 seconds later. This mob preceded to tear through our group [large set of circumstances leading up to this] and we eventually wiped. Checking the logs after wipe, we discover a player named Takato [on Seraph server, total douchebag] had casted diaga during the fight, and we could only assume this was the source of the DoT on the link. Called GM, never got any kind of resolution from them, so bleh.

Old-ish post, but couldn't let this slide.

While I can definitely agree with the fact that there are definitely some people who are capable and willing to MPK you for the mob, I would not go as far as to say that everyone, or even most people will do it. I had obtained TOD two days ago, along with another group who was after it, so when we both showed up the next day, they were surprisingly nice enough to even let my group get the claim (and tried to take any links off us). Yes it's rare, but I just don't agree with the idea that everyone who is after YYR, should painted as someone who would MPK others for it. It can bring out the best in people just as it can bring out the worst.

I'll definitely help that other group out should the opportunity ever arise.

To add to this "thread", Shikigami died at 9:20EST on Sept 21. It took me a couple of days just sitting in Ro'Maeve with /rng, checking widescan every now and then to get TOD.

My SMN is now 72 and I just got this, but it wasn't easy and can be very frustrating. Got ToD from just going one day on a hunch and never lost it after that, worse case scenario you just keep subtracting 3 hours from ToD from the previous day and add 10 minutes to it every other day to average out and this worked for me during the nights I was working and couldn't camp it, this is a level 80 NM but even though very difficult it can be duo'd with the right jobs.

Shiki can pop in the two middle tier rows of Ro'Meave and if anyone has ever noticed he always runs in a counterclockwise direction. I claimed him 5 times before I finally got the robe so i'm 1/5 on it. Would always go 75WHM/37RNG and would have no problem aggroing him, so long as someone with voke were close by you to make sure you didn't die after initial aggro. And then there is the possibility of adds which will require some damage control. Fortunately I was lucky enough to have 8 or 9 people go with me and I only ended up dying twice just because stoneskin wore off before I could recast while Shiki was up.

As annoying as this was in the beginning we got quite good at claiming, so now other members from the LS want this lol. It is definitely worth the trouble and grats on all who have gotten it so far. BTW that fashion shot up top is a MNK but yea they both body pieces share the same model. Just my two cents.

Ever since this came out I've wanted it... STILL don't have it, been 75 since it came out, I left for a year BECAUSE i couldn't get it. I had it stolen 8 times (the other summoner booted me from group when it dropped/right before)
I hate people
# Nov 14 2007 at 8:12 AM Rating: Decent
OMG OMG OMG!! people suck!

I've had my SMN to 75 on Kujata for over 6 months and I have been trying to get my YYR off and on for the past year. I went today to try again. Got there and there was another party of 3 camping that asked if we wanted to team up. We figured what the heck since there was only 2 of us there. Better to have a higher chance of getting the claim and a lower chance at winning the drop than missing the claim altogether. We made the usual agreements that we'd lot the Yinyang and whatnot.

After some work we managed to get the claim. Things went well, we got the drop and the only other person besides me doesn't lot (kinda fishy). I cast my lot and get like 760 something, the person I went with had yet to pass as he was still busy killing the links. All of a sudden the robe drops to the person from the other party that needed it.

I ask "Um.. did you lot?" He said it did and that he got a 988. Neither myself nor my friend that was helping me saw a lot and my friend chimed in with the fact that he had yet to pass so the robe shouldn't had dropped yet. The winner of the drop then warps away and drops the party.

It would seem that the little punk switched to quartermaster right after I lotted, got the drop, then switched back while the rest of us were busy killing off the links.

A GM call got us no where as it's apparently okay for others to totally ***** you over as long as the game mechanics are working properly.

So I am now totally pissed and still Yinyangless.

If anybody on Kujata sees Omnimage around make sure to slap the tarutaru out of him!

Moral of the story, people suck, don't trust anybody, GMs are worthless, and there is a global conspiracy for cows to take over the world (don't trust a cow!)

Hello everyone... Just wondering if anyone know's the ToD (Time of Death) for the Shikigami Weapon on the Unicorn Server? Or maybe you know someone who can find out? Or if anyone has any openings in a LinkShell that does NM camping events... I would love to join. Any help and information would be so greatly appreciated! Summoner is the main reason that I play Final Fantasy XI and nothing would make my experience more full and complete than to be able to obtain this body armor!

Thanks all and good adventures to you! <(^.^)>

Hey I am level 66 smn,and I really want this body piece. If anyone has TOD or is able to help me out and get this, I would appreciate it so much. <3 Keiana

Quick Easy post. Only job I want to really play is Smn. Currently @ lvl 54. Since Vclock is pretty useless the one I was given by brother I have sold 1.5Mil on Remora. Anyone able to snag me a YingYang via their LS or HLNM ls or by whatever means you can that gil is all yours. Im sorry to have to post here for this, but I am in a Mid level LS with casual players and only a few have even hit Level 50. So please YingYing for 1.5 Million if interested hit me up on the Remora Server, my name is "Cubby" .
Thanks <(*^o^*)>

Alright now the story changes.
When I was told about this "Spy vs Spy" crap involving Simo and cult, nobody said "maybe" he betrayed out trust.
I was told with "Malcum X" style conviction that Simo had sold us out.
I wrote what I was told by the people who were right there in the middle of the situation.
Now everyone is saying saying "er.. um.. well no umm.. I was mistaken.. but your wrong for posting it"

Well I say "Bullsh#t.. your wrong for saying it in the first place."

If Simo had pulled this crap he would deserve to be exposed for it. As it stands now all that our collective efforts accomplished was to stir up alot of anger.
Hmm.. Is there a moral to this story? I'll let yallz play with that one im done.

doesnt matter now.

Friend on the LS happend to get and keep ToD after last update. He tried for the first few days and no drop. Went with him next day and we lost claim. Popped agian the day after and there was no one else around camping. We got claim easily and killed it with 3 smns. Got the drop, won the lot and bing, Yinyang robe on the first kill. Total luck on my side. Agreed though, there should be another way to get this robe. Up until now, I ran around as a 70+ smn for almost a year with only a Vcloak. Nice to be able to finally have refresh and the added option of headgear.

The Yinyang robe is one of the many drops that SE needs to fix. Summoner is not an easy job to level in the first place, but then to have to deal with this NM which Spawns once ever 21 hours.

good luck getting the spawn time as it tends to be a closely guarded secret and for good reason, Shiki pops invisible and cannot be claimed until it agros magic or links, so widescan is a must.
It requires several people to kill, which means you need people to be ready and willing to drop what their doing to come and organize prior to pop time. I understand it can be killed duo, but then again its a matter of getting those two jobs and them being available and willing.

If you have a job you may have trouble getting this item or maintaining the pop time. Then there is the matter of the drop rate its said to be 50% but even with TH2 iv seen it hold out for up to 4 spawns before dropping, sounds more like 25% if your lucky, For the trouble one must go through the rop should be 100%. I think even the "Hard-core HnM Junkies" would even understand that one.

And if that’s not enough then you have the “adds” that link and agro during the kill provided you were lucky enough to get the claim in the first place. So basically this is a huge load of time consuming Crap for a JSE piece that is nice and has good stats. Its not the ultimate “End all-be all” body piece in the known universe. It is pretty much standard for any qualifying summoner.

So why does it seem like SE is trying to severely meter the number of robes on the server? It’s not like it gives Avatar perp.-5 or some unheard of stat that should be held exclusive.

The Peacock charm and Emperor Hairpin were duped Rare/ex and alternate methods of acquisition were installed to allow them to be attained without fear of monopoly or some “un-gawdly” price tag,
and all I am proposing is a few ways to fix the problem first off Make Shiki a 3-4 hour spawn, the nature of its pop would still make it a challenge.
Another answer would be to plug the item into a BCNM, or Force spawn, hell make it craft able, Like the Nobles or Weskit. Or like i said b4 make it a 100% drop.

why this piece needs to be so hard to obtain is beyond me. Seems like a lot of effort for something that should be easy to attain like other JSE.

# Dec 14 2006 at 12:52 AM Rating: Decent
Compared to other jobs' versions of "endgame" armor, this piece is not so bad. The NM's window is only 10 minutes long, so you either have it or you don't and can try again another day. In comparison to something like Adaman Hauberk or Koenig Cuirass which is about 150x harder to get and 90% of WAR/PLD/etc will never even see.

Takes effort, sure, but I don't think its an unnecessary amount.

I'm not 100% on this, but an old in-game friend said this item was from the origianl azumuth circle event. you had to do the ifrit's cauldron run. I wasn't playing at that point, so I don't know for sure, but that could explain the NM's difficulty, it may have been added as a way for everyone to have a shot at the robe.
# Nov 18 2006 at 9:58 AM Rating: Default
nice to see a reply that wasnt dripping with sacrasm.

Thankyou for the feedback, and even if you had disagreed with the post i'd still be appreciative.
I posted a similar Rant on KI and got every "HnM Veteran" and "Forum nerd" all hot and bothered at the idea that I was complaining about this NM.
I guess the idea that its not a god or dragon makes it to weak for them, and since they could get this item easy by simply over running the area with people.. it doesnt count to them. Not everyone belongs to a shell that can pull multiple alliances out at will lol.

The point is I wasnt so much trying to ***** about the NM, as I was trying to point out the fact that the other JsE Body pieces peer to this one are craftable and sold all the time. So why would SE deem it nessessary to make this one hard to acquire?

I am one lucky guy - got ToD yesterday. Went today with 5 friends, he popped, we claimed, killed and he dropped. He spawn within 15 minutes of window.

I am very happy :)

I never thought I would be able to get this gear.

Gooo me!
Good Robe

I really otta get this, just as soon as my smn reaches 70ish. Good stats, I really like the aditional refresh and the ability to make blood-pacts faster, helps conserve mp while having the avatar out just for the buff.

Instead of looking for the secret to why Square is *** holes, as you so gracefully put in your post -- how about looking for the reason you are, first? Look up all your options and if you have to ask questions before assuming. It helps ...

This is an awesome robe -- only reason not to use it would be to macro it out for the relic body.

That is a SMN in sky, with Carby mitts and has Rune baghnakhs equiped... Not a MNK... Someone needs to brush up on their equipment lol.

Ok, first off:

"Avatar: Enmity+5" Just like AF decreases hate to the AVATAR, this INCREASES hate to the avatar, not the summoner, in any way, shape, OR form..

The hate bonus is TO THE AVATAR..

Secondly, this is no piece of crap EQ.. Every SMN 70+ should be wearing one of these in EXP, HNM, or otherwise, unless your day matches avatar and you have AF2 body, ect...

But no, this hate does not go to summoners, and it is certainly ANYthing but crap.. Simply read the stats.. "AVATAR: Enmity +5"

If you wish to decrease hate on avatar, wear original AF, "AVATAR: enmity - (amount)" from AF..

Kinda gets annoying seeing so many posts saying it's crap and that hate goes to summon...


PS: Carby gets Auto-Regen when you get Auto-Refresh.. @ level 25..
