#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 17 2005 at 6:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I can confirm that this weapon is not a 100% drop since i'm 1/2 on this bad boy... The NM is lottery tundra tiger @ H-10 of beaucedine glacier, i'd say easily soloable 50+ but recomemend that you decide to go after this guy when you of a lvl where the gob's won't aggro due to the fact there are lots of gobs near the Kirata spawn...
Great Weapon

Friend was camping Nue with 75 NIN/THF. Decided to go get this since he had no competition for claim.

When I 1st reached the tower, killed 1 placeholder, and spawned next - killed it easily with BRD/WHM (sing 1 Mambo for evading attacks). No drop at first.

After 40mins of killing placeholders, it spawned again. Dropped cesti this time, along with a fang. ^_^

This weapon is hellish and all monks hitting 30 should consider obtaining this. I replaced my Republic Knuckles with this at 30 and found them to be overpowering in all aspects (lower delay + permanent Enaero).

Just got this great little piece of gear today. Took a 74 PLD friend along (thanks Knight!) and I went as whm/thf. There were two others that came along and ran off after seeing two of us camping. Fight was easy, spawned to the east of the tower the two times ive seen it pop. Windsday, First Quarter moon (45%) dark weather going. 1/1 whoosh whoosh!

Solo @ 50

Just for reference, it's a very leisure task to solo spawning and fighting Kirata as a 50MNK/25WHM with a Hundred Fists. If it's too easy or boring, it's still possible to take on without the 2-Hour (and a whole lot more fun, if I do say so myself!)

Try for an honorable and fierce fight for such a magnificent piece of weaponry.

Obtaining them:

I ran out to Beaucedine Glacier as my THF, and my Fav BRD (level69) just in case it wasn't soloable at level 52. Went at 90ish+ Moon phase. Killed the two tigers by tower @H-10 one repopped, the other didn't. About 3 minutes after killing the first repop, I spotted Kitara (sp). That's the tiger that drops them. Waited for Smokebud (Taru BRD) to regain MP, since we were playing with the gobbies (Sleep SATA onto BRD), and pulled to safe area. The fight was not hard at all. Still uncertain if soloable by 52THF, but maybe I'll try next time we get a pair for LS. Total time to get these including travel, about 50 minutes Teleport-Vahzl. Being that no one camps this NM, I assume the lottery pop window is normally open.

BTW, 1/1 on drop with a Blk. Tiger Fang.

Additional Effect info:

Yes, first off, we decided to see what increases wind damage. Nothing what so ever. BRD played all + Stat songs, with no increase in damage to additional effect on too weak mobs. The additional effect on Too Weak mobs ranges from 5-7 per punch, including Counter. One time counter did not result in wind damage though. So perhaps it's 99% additional effect. No the counter did not kill it. we both checked the battle log. Anyways, in ballista it did range from 5-7 damage per hit. On one play it had 1 additional damage per hit, but they might have been buffed vs wind, or simply had resistance to wind. On players not buffed it did 5-7 damage each punch, which made landing punches hella fun in ballista 30.

Hope this helps all who want this... Happy hunting.

I went 1/4 on them. As previously stated (and this is important) the two tigers share a spawn with one of the two Living Dolls. They can spawn all around the tower, but not into the passages into the mountainside. Time for respawns for me were 1h15, 2h20, and 2h15. Happy hunting.

Theres all the info you need.

They also need to fix the drop info, it does not drop from the BCNM.

I sent an email to them, with the drop info an such, but i guess they went with somone else. >.>

i still need a new picture of the nm, with his new name. the one i sent was of his old name.

It doesn't say it drops from a BCNM, it says it drops from Macan Gadungan. Through some accident, this tiger NM had the same name generated for it as the coeurl NM in "Wild Wild Whiskers", the giddeus 3 man bc60. Not long afterwards, this tiger's name was changed to Kirata.

If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

I was trying out ballista 30 in jugner with my blm, and a monk came up and owned me with these. The wind effect wasn't excessively strong, but PC have no elemental affinities. If used on the right mob, it could probably do quite a bit of damage with added effect. Like said, great fun with hundred fists.

hmmm, affinities, an attraction? I looked it up cause I didn't know it but pretty sure you used it improperly. Anyways, PC's do have "weaknesses" to elements. Just watch a THF wearing a Kote that gives -fire get one shoted by a bomb toss in bibki bay or a PLD with a bomb queen ring. So I would say having -wind resistance on in Ballista would cause you to take more DMG.

Hmm, by affinity, I think he meant elemental power. We're not naturaly +fire defense or +water defense, we're neutral. Meaning, that we are neither strong nor weak to any elemement. [So basicaly, we're don't have an affinity [attraction[ to the element of wind, so we're not strong vs it, or weak to it, if your wearing certain types of gear]

additional damage?
# Aug 08 2005 at 1:17 PM Rating: Decent
how much additional damage do they add at a time? would suck if it adds 0 every time... it'd be pointless... well won't work on wind & ice based mobs i'd guess... and, is there anyway to get More out of the additional damage? like wear more MND maybe?
NM name changed
# Aug 08 2005 at 12:32 AM Rating: Excellent
The mob this is dropped from had it's name changed from Macan Gadangan to Kirata, since there was already a Macan Gadangan (single Coeurl BC).

There are 2 place holders for Kirata. 2 tigers that can pop around the tower, though one is a shared pop with the 2nd Statue in the tower.

Fun with Hundred Fists.
Got em

It's Additional effect kicks in ALL THE TIME, so basicly this weapon gives you "En-Aero".

The additional effect of these cesti is just like the RDM spell Enaero. Dropped off of the mob Kirata in Beaucedine Glacier, spawns around the tower at H-10.
