1/1... This time. XD

Hitting 52 DRG, I wanted these back for when I went back to Monk. In the past, I killed this ***** over ten times, many of which had a friend with TH4. When I finally did get them, it was alone, as a low-50s Thief. x.x;

Went out, and there was a WHM leveling their NPC in the area. I try to be a nice guy, and leave if someone's camping an NM like this. Asked them several times if they were hunting it, but they failed to respond ONCE... So, I camped it. Maybe ten minutes later after killing a few statues, they popped.
Blinded them (/NIN), and went to work. They hit hard, but not too accurate at that level. Took them down (And yes, used a WS... I was getting worried with their damage), and... Boreas Cesti.

1/1 on this, and Kote.
No matter how many times I quit this game, it seems I'm destined to be a Monk.

I'm working on the "El Monk Fauregandi Temas Tres", or simply as I call it, the "The Monks Fauregandi Three"... (NM's: Nue, Kirata, Western Shadow)

First stop on my list was Kirata. This tiger is weak and probably one of the easier NM's that I have camped in a long time. The road to this NM is hardly troded on, except those trying to get through to Batallia Downs north access. Everytime that I was there, there were no other players camping against me. The area surrounding the tower (H/I-10) is surround by Two Tundra Tigers, Two Living Statues, and 1 of each of the Goblins; Pathfinder (with tiger pet), Poacher, Reaper, Robber, and Smithy. All between level 37-41.

Wikipedia says:

Spawns around the tower at H-10; Lottery Spawn from the two Tundra Tiger and two Living Statue in that area.

I cannot confirm that the two living statues share the same lottery as NM Kirata. I can confirm that there will NEVER be 2 Tigers and 2 Living Statues up at the same time. One of the Tigers and one of the Statues share the same spawn. There was always two of either one, and one of the other only. I suggest killing any Tundra Tigers AND Statues you see as this may help increase the rate at which he spawns. I can confirm that the Goblin's Tiger has nothing to do with this NM. I can confirm that the one tiger that appears to the northeast in that passage way also has nothing to do with this NM. My record for Kirata was 1/2 with Treasure Hunter 3. When Kirata popped for me, he appeared either just outside the front face of the tower, or directly to the east of the tower. I'm not entirely sure how storng he is to lower levels but with capped and merited EVA, I was never hit once and I didn't even bring Shehei Tools for Shadows as THF/NIN.

I don't believe any new campers should be worried about this guy, he is more than likely the easiest of the three that im after.

Kirata had wind additional effect
I did not use a WS

OK, I have half-*** camped this thing once and I had to go because of LS business. Well, I decided to try again and grab a pair for an upcoming Promy run for memebers in the LS that are without. And we're heading to Phomiuna next weekend.

Anyhow, get up there about 8:00 and start killing with a friend. She runs out about 9:00 to mule and get ready for Promy. I kept killing here and there with one other person out there. I changed windows for a sec to talk to a friend on Yahoo! and saw a tiger pop in front of me. I jumped when I saw Kirata.

I don my battle gear and get to work. I Chakra'd once to replenish to replenish lost health at the very beginning, but I soon found that his hits were't bad enough to phase me with Dodge on. I used no 2hours, and no Weapon Skills (I'm paranoid and believe some rumors). I land that last hit and lo and behold. I am now 1/1 on Kirata. I seriously could not believe it.

Happy hunting, folks! May you be as lucky as me.

Stats: MNK60/WAR30

World Stats: Windsday 00:03
Last Quarter Moon (60%

No skills but Dodge and Focus, no Weapon Skills.

Hope this info helps for those crunching the numbers!!
Holy cow...

where do I play the game online? please help.
# Jan 16 2007 at 3:00 PM Rating: Decent
I'd say they're good until Cross-Counters/TM Hooks+2.

Wind Damage 100%, obviously, adds up well.
the truth
# Dec 17 2006 at 9:56 PM Rating: Decent
everything everyone says about the PHs is right but dont listen to theories of no ws ect.

just be viligant and camp if u dont get the claim or the drop dont worry note TOD and keep camping killing PHs. i advise against loggin or going afk so u can control PH repop time and hopefully get it to pop at the 1.5hr mark.

nue - 1/3
kirata 1/3

these cesti are sh-t

main job - 60mnk
sub jobs - 37war 37sam 20nin 15thf

To those who know me on Lakshmi, you all know I'm a Rare/Ex collector of sorts. Well, to make a long story short, I saw these on the Hand to Hand page and had to try them out.

I thought to myself, the stats don't look all that spectacular, they must have a certain aspet that makes them worthy. Well, Lynx Baghnakahs have lower delay, same damage. Cougar have same damage and close delay with Ice damage. What is it that makes these worthy of coming off such a pain in the **** NM(1/3 for those of you who didn't know). Lemme tell you why these are something special for MNK.

They parse the additional Wind Damage 100% of the time(excluding finishing blows and WS's). That's adds up very quickly, and it also essentially raises the DoT damage to that of a DMG: 10-12 knuckles. Very impressive. Not to mention, if you master mind your parties like I do for max damage, that includes SC's that Magic Burst with Wind. That means you can throw up to 2 small Magic Bursts as a MNK!!! The Wind damage seems to do about 4-10 damage per hit, MB'd 20-25 damage.

So for you higher lvl Guys out there that plan on lvling MNK, it would be a good time investment to seek these out. The NM is easy to kill above lvl 55, and the fact is, these are no doubt one of a kind. I hope some of this info is helpful to you all.

I know we all hate these posts about other peoples luck, i know cause i am one of the people that loves to hate them cuase it never happens to me.
Just so you get the idea.
0/14 on Lizzy
0/6 on V.E
0/5 on Rse Ammo
0/2 on nin weapon (i forget the name)
0/16 on mist silk cape.

You get the idea.

Well my whm friends wants a fei yin key for his tele scroll i agree to go out there and get him one i want to try subbing war. So we head out there i OPW he shouts for a tele.

While i wait i go to hunt this was gonna do it after but i have some time to kill while i wait for him to join me so i read up on it while i run. (ty to all that posted very helpful info ^^.

Get there kill the doll inside, then the 2 tigers. My friend meets me, i tell him just gonna wait on the repop. Doll appear, standard tiger then blow me! Kirata pops. Dia >>> <t> {Mine} {Thank You}.

I remember reading about they only drop when she does added wind with i had SS up and she doing on damage but there is the added affect... so that puts me in good spirits.
Kill her off and blow me Boreas Cesti!?!

less then 5 mins hunting XD well there is a 1st for everything huh?

So i regards to her only dropping when she does added wind damage i cant say for sure but she did do it when she dropped for me. Happy hunting all!

Cant want to try these out in CoP!

# Apr 05 2006 at 6:16 PM Rating: Decent

I would use them until lvl 38, when you can get Mythril Knuckles +1.

And keep those kote, because they are about the best hand gear you can get for straight up damage, unless you get the very rare and very expensive alkyoneus bracelets or bandomusha kote.
very good weapons

I just finished my first XP PT with these. As has been mentioned, the average add'l effect damage is 5-7. At the of the party, the parser showed I did 18134 in damage PLUS 2024 in effect damage, which is a 13% increase over a weapon with just Damage: +6 Delay: +48 (not necessarily Republic Knuckles).

3 days in a row freezing my taru butt off, 3 kills, finally got this lovely little toy. /collapse ......but it was worth it :)
Luck? Just a report..
# Feb 13 2006 at 4:28 PM Rating: Decent
I had decided to camp these for my Mnk31.
After changing into Rng60/Nin30 I outpost warped to Fauregandi and headed to (H-10) where I settled in the tower. There were already two Living Statues there so I killed those and the remaining Tundra Tiger outside. After about 55 minutes of camping and killing statues and tigers, I see Kirata pop on widescan, head out and attack it. It popped during Waning Crescent (14%) Darksday. THe NM had about 3800 HP, was relatively weak. Nevertheless it dropped the Cesti so I'm 1/1 on it! Happy hunting for those looking for this.

Just Got These Babys today. after 7 hrs of camping the tiger.
Just got them but can't use til 30
# Dec 21 2005 at 3:05 PM Rating: Decent
So I was out there for about a total of 5 hours with my THF and my RNG friend. IT IS VERY VITAL TO KILL ONE DOLL! And don't kill the other, just let the tigers keep spawning and killing them. I noticed he likes to pop at night time with both times I seen him. Hopes this helps and can't wait to hit 30 with my MNK. ^^

Hi, I logged in and killed the two dolls and the tiger. Kirata then promptly spawned at sometime around 6:00 gametime, in case you were thinking that it just spawned at night.
