The entrance to this Carpenter's Landing is to the right of the Outpost on the map. It's a small entrance inside the mountain.

Once inside the landing head left and just kind-of go straight. There will be a room with a ??? ontop of a mushroom thing with beetles around it.

Trade the 3 shrooms to it and pop the NM..

Killed the NM with 1 WS on 75 THF 1/1 on gloves.

Good luck and have fun. :D

I went with my friend to get this, I was lvl 46 whm/thf(15) and he was lvl 38 drk/thf(15). The first time, we died since I went in cocky, so my mp was half way, and my friend got one shot by Mycophile's Dark Spore attack. We went to try again, this time keeping the aggro on me since I was higher level, and just kept my stoneskin on, which ate up the Dark Spore attack, and also I have the Holy Breastplate. Doing it that way made the battle rather easy. Beat him twice and got 2 pairs of these gloves right away, I guess having 2xTH1 helped :) And we both had the 4-leaf mandys.
1/1 first try, 0/5 second

First tried to solo the NM on a 45 RDM. It wasn't an easy fight, he died when I had 0 MP and 60 HP with bio on... fortunately it wore and I got drop first time. That was Fall 05.

Tried them again yesterday/today, easy to duo on 58 RDM and 51 BRD. Did the same spells (enfeebles, en spells, minor nukes), and 0/5 so far.

His casting, mushroom order, and our spells haven't made any difference. =/ I think it's pure luck.
My story

I was browsing Allakazham recently, and came across these. I remember seeing these a long time ago in my early whm career and wanting them badly, funnily enough i woulda gotten destroyed by Mycophile when i first wanted these, so I decided to wait.

Silly old me then completely forgot about them, and have sinced leveled 2 jobs high enough to totally own this guy.

I went down as pld/thf (lvl 60) and fough this guy 5 times, eventually getting the drop on the 5th. At lvl 60 this guy is a pushover, but even with TH his drop rate isnt excellent. I'd reccommend bringing a stack of each shrooms just in case.

Good luck to anyone wanting these gloves, Good Hunting! ^^

I was in exp pt not too long ago in Aydeewa subterrane and managed to get hate while we were fighting a puktrap. It floated over to me long enough to be intimidated by my presence. None of my other gear had any kind of plantoid killer effect. Considering the origin of these gloves I assume that its possible that they have plantoid killer as a hidden effect. I guess no one noticed it before since its a whm pc of equipment and whm rarely have hate, and there arent alot of plantoid mobs out there. I could be wrong but something i had intimidated the puktrap and nothing i had equipped had any kind of killer effect. Has anyone else noticed this at all?

I'm not *sure* but I think that if you had eaten a ginger cookie, they give the effect of Plantoid Killer. From what you described, that sounds likely....

Me, my bro and a ls friend went out to get one each today. Got one about every three kills, so luckier drops than some of the other guys here.

Saw someone who had these gloves the other day in Garliage, immediately wanted them. I asked about them in my ls but no one knew anything about them so I looked them up here and how to spawn the NM then recruited my roomate (35 whm, I was 40 war) and went to spawn this mob. Figured I could take it if my roomate healed me so we spawned it and had it about half dead when it used silence gas for about 350 damage to me and killed me. It then easily killed my roomate pretty quickly once his stoneskin wore off.

Decided to try it again but this time we got the help of a friend in one of my ls's (Once again thank you Eskil) who was a 48 (I think, was /anon) nin. Get back to Carpenter's landing and spawn it and kill it easily and got drop. My roomate and I lot on it and of course my roomate won XD so we wait and spawn again...nothing. Ended up by the time I got my pair we were 2/6 on kills. Only took about an hour and a half total to get my roomate and me a pair, which if you ask me is worth the time spent on them cause they are a really nice pair of gloves to own if you're leveling blm and whm, which I am currently doing. ^^

Goodluck to those of you who camp this mob in the future.

Key to getting Mycophile Cuffs found?

Sorry if this has been posted already, but I think I just found the key to getting the Mycophile Cuffs to drop 100% of the time. After reading a few posts here and talking a friend, along with first hand experience, I think i've found the "key" as it were.

DO NOT let him cast any spells.

I know it seems like something that shouldn't matter, but after facing the NM for this like 10 times over several days for 2 pairs of cuffs (one for a friend one for me) sometimes solo, sometimes in a group, we ONLY got the drops on the kills when he DIDN'T cast anything.

First kill, my friend and I who i'm helping get gloves don't do anything special to kill him "He'll be easy to kill and has a high drop rate on the gloves. I've never seen him not drop them all the times i've helped kill him" she says. So, I pop (she was 30 at the time on a new char cause her old got jacked by a friend... but that is another topic and not for random people Smiley: lol) and he casts poison on me. At this point, my friend is shocked cause she NEVER saw him cast any spells because he normally died too quick. Well, he dies pretty quickly after he cast poison on me, but no drop. Again, my friend is pretty shocked because she had never seen them NOT drop.

So, next kill, we try again, same thing happens and he casts poison again. Again, no drop.

Next kill (now on 3rd) he starts casting poison, but in an interesting turn of events, I actually interupt him and he dies shortly after. That time... DROP. So, I figured I could kill him easy enough solo and she had more use for the cuffs, so I pass.

We decide to try one more time for me, since i'd need them soon too. Same thing as fights 1 and 2, gets a spell off and NO drop of cuffs. At this point we are both just tired of this place (spent like an hour+ in there for all the pops) and leave. Over the next couple of days I come back several times with my shrooms and pop him, trying to frontload as much damage as a WHM can on him so he doesn't cast (we had already GUESSED that maybe that was the key but weren't sure) and every time he got a spell off and didn't drop the cuffs. I tried Ele Seal Silence, and it didn't stick so I doubt he is silencable. Maybe by a RDM with capped magic... but, you don't need that lol.

So, today, I figure "Ok i'm going to get a friend and we'll just tear him a new one." So, I grab a RDM friend of mine (Smiley: lol) who is free to help me with some stuff, and we head out. First kill we just go for straight damage figuring maybe we could kill him quicker soloing our WS. He does spirits, I do Hexa... Mycophile does Poison. He drops REALLY quickly after poison (maybe 10 seconds) due to some nukes, but again no drop.

So, at this point, another person shows up to get them, and we figure "Well maybe if he had /DRK for stun..." so we give him that next pop (NO idea if he got cuffs though, wish I woulda asked him), head back to Al Zhabi for the RDM to change subs, and besiged comes in. So we end up doing that Smiley: lol. Well, anyways, after Besieged my RDM friend (now subbing DRK) and I head back to Mycophile. We figure this time we'll do a Light SC, with him going first so he can stun if Mycophile tries anything and hopefully Light + Holy MB will kill him or bring him down to almost nothing so we can kill him quickly after and he wont get a spell off. (By now i'm REALLY buying into the "No Cast" theory as this is like 10th try, and all the others where Mycophile casts have resulted in no drop)

So, we build TP, I pop him, RDM does Savage Blade, Mycophile is at 1/2 health. I do Hexa for 1084, light SC does 1084... Mycophile dies, and what pops in our treasure pool but the Mycophile Cuffs. I wanted to stay and try to "wtfpwn" him again, just to see if we could get another pair to drop like that, and the RDM friend said he wouldn't mind a pair for his BLM... but, he had to go to bed so in the end we left.

Even so, given a few comments on the item like AgentDTM and locafoca (which could have been a lucky hit on interupt like the first drop for my friend?) saying how they "wtfpwnt" Mycophile and he dropped the cuffs, along with my experiences fighting him around 10 times, I think it is safe to say that not letting him cast (which also means a quick kill, since I REALLY don't think you can silence him, so maybe it is a timed thing instead casting?) means that you get the mitts. Or at least drastically increases drop rate. Also of note is on none of the drops did I have any form of TH. I was WHM/BLM the whole time, my BLM friend was BLM/RDM, and my RDM friend was RDM/BLM and then RDM/DRK on the time they dropped.
In a distant land, sink into the darkness...

Well, I remember I decided to finally get these nice gloves, so I went out on my 75 brd/thf, figured the TH1 would be nice for the drop.

So I went in to Carpenters' Landing, spawned the NM with the 3 mushrooms.

I remember he casted poison and I think one other spell. I remember because I was shocked I didnt resist them lol x.x
But I still got the drop in the end even though he had casted the spells on me.

66 WHM and 24 BLM owned it hard, cuffs first drop.

note to whoever's reading this: woosy + sleep + dance shrooms. all three, don't make the mistake we did and waste half an hour.

Well, yesterday I went to solo this badboy to get these. Lvl 44 blm cant do it, just so you all know! Oh well I hp and went and shouted in Jeuno for about 5 minutes before I got a tell from a 60 blm and 4 whm. We all went and buffed up.

I had all the shrooms to trade (11of each). I traded and we nuked the hell outta Mycophile. DROP!!!!

Ok so now we wait for 15 min to get a pair for the whm. Cleared the room twice and then got ready to trade again. I traded and again the thing drop in no time... DROP!!

rare drop maybe for some, but it was a good day for us!

Found these gloves listed for whm when I was trying to outfit my in-game wife's lvl 25 whm. The quest seemed easy enough, so I took a shot.Bought one stack of each shroom, cost about 20-25k.

Went first time solo, as pld60/thf15. (Yes for Treasure Hunter) Found the ??? easily enough, buffed up on Protect III/Shell III and traded the shrooms. NM popped. Goddamn this thing was easy! Got him down to 1/2 HP, used Vorpal Blade, dead. Lost maybe 80-100HP total. But no drop. So I waited for the timer, killing every Shrieker I could find. Went back, with 300TP this time. Popped the ???, and raped the NM. Got the drop! wOOt! But as it's rare/ex, couldn't trade. That's ok, I'd like to level my whm one day, these will come in handy if for nothing else than the -2 enmity.

Had a ton of shrooms, asked LS if anyone wanted to take a stab. Lvl 51 rdm came down, wanting the gloves for her whm. Same drill, only this time I lined up behind the NM with Sneak Attack/Vorpal Blade. Fight was over before we began. But no drop. Waited and did it a 2nd time, drop. Now 2/4.

My in game wife, Meowphttphtt (drk60/war30) comes on, we ride out, get to the spot, clear the room for fun and TP, popped the NM again. Total destruction. And drop on the 1st try. =)

All told, 3/5 on drop, two very happy whm's with new toys, and another NM on the list. If you need these, or a whm/blm/smn needs these, give it a spin. Should be no trouble at all.

carby death FTL!!!
# Jun 19 2006 at 11:14 AM Rating: Default
i love how a Lv. 75 smn Carby can be killed by this... i just find that sad

I saw some whm with them while i was exp'ing in the Garlaige sh*tidel so i looked them up and it seemed easy as hell. After buying like 20k in shrooms I headed down to Carpenters Landing (I just found out you can choco in there and i have two level 75 jobs) :/ I got them on second drop. Went in as high level smn and carby owned its weak ***, Carby ended up dying of the plague that Mushroom spit it its face. But lets not forget this is war, there will be casualties.

Me and my friend who was 60+ Thf went out to Carpenter's Landing. We cleared the room and popped Mycophile. It was a piece of cake. We got the cuffs on first try and warped out.

Went as SAM75/THF37. It took about 200 hp from me total, dark spore did about 125 dmg. I finished it off with Tachi: Kasha when it was at about 15%.

1/1 on the drop too.

well on the third Mycophile run for me, we got the drop..

First two times averaged about 3 hours and 0/9.. Third run got the drop on 2nd kill.

Lineup was for first 2, 65PLD and 42BLM, third run had an additional PLD lvl 50 too.. Not that it mattered, I am sure I could solo this thing with BLM/NIN.

These cuffs are made for the Taru BLM. I would GLADLY sacrifice the 1 INT loss from Seers Mitts+1 for the -2 Enmity... Anyday. especially at this level -Enmity is far and few between...

Shout outs to Rilos and Omeo for the help, I owe you guys a pair of oven mitts.
