i got 2 ring's after killing 59 mob, and i got 3 degens out of 10 and 2 stacks odf oil's.

for all thf's there, these ring worth farming better than rare ring's (even if u have the money don't buy it and go farm it)

Shikaree Ring: 2/59.
Flame Degen: 3/10.

i was farming as PLD75/THF31 (TH1).

Good luck all ^.^/

I know there's one in every crowd but still:

Was passing through Ordelle's last night doing my ZM5 headstone. Saw a Stroper Chyme up downstairs, killed no drop. Remembered there were two upstairs. 1st one, no drop.

2nd one - DROP!

Yeah BST/WHM too.... So I guess that's just how it goes. 1/3

That's pretty awful. They never changed the drop rate, apparently. I used to camp the Archer rings before it went rare/ex for 700k a pop, with TH2. Me and my camping buddy would get 1 in every 100~ Sometimes very close to one another but very rarely. Made a ton of gil doing that :] May I suggest, at level 40 you try your luck in Riverne Site A01 though, against the Carmine Dobsonfly NM's. Double the stats, although you can only hold 1, the drop rate is incredible. The ring itself is called "Jaeger Ring" and is level 35. And while you're at it you might get a shot at a Voyager Sallet. It can be taken with 3-4 SMN Lv40 all 2 hour Diamond Dust, a couple maybe 3 BLM on hand in case that doesn't do the trick to Elemental Seal + Sleepga. And a Paladin tank to get the initial aggro, as you cannot pull these flies seperately no matter how spread out they are. They all link no matter what you do. Make sure everyone takes reraise because if you fail the first shot at it, it's very tedious, and could take up to 2 hours~ with this setup with many deaths. Also be aware there's bombs in the area that aggro magic.

Think about it throroughly.

I am 0/20 on this yesterday, and i went 1/35+ weeks before they invented the r/ex version. Gah i hate this monster...
Nice expierience

I went 2/40 or so on these as 50THF/NIN. Not a waste of time by any means, as these are great rings. Not to mention I made around 100k farming Flame Degens and other misc. items while I was waiting for Chymes to pop. All in all about 5 hours of farming for the rings, and I made a hefty sum of gil from the other spoils, not a wasted trip I'd say.
Upped drop rate?

I think they upped the drop rate on this. Back when they first made stroper chyme's drop r/ex I went down to get myself some for my Warand I killed over 100 before the first one dropped. I left after getting my first because it suckedso bad. I've since dropped that ring and today decided I needed a pair for my dnc. I went 2/12 with TH3 on 50% moon!
Needless to say I was a little shocked given my prior experience. So yea, I think they may have upped the drop rate. If not, take a thief with you cuz this was **** easy for a change.
You better really want it!!!!!!!!!!

Thought I'd share my "waste of time" story. I don't want to discourage anyone from trying to get this but don't read just the very very few post on people stating "ah, I was in the area and killed a stroper chyme and am 1/1 on it!". That's pure absolute luck and wouldn't consider that helping you when you go to hunt. The drop rate on this is absolutely terrible and envy the ones that got it under 10 kills.

There are 4 spawns on 12 minutes timers. 3 of the spawns you can get to easily if you take the path for Morbolger (Brown Belt quest NM). The reason I say just kill 3 is that to get to the 4th spawn after killing the 3, you have to drop off th ledge, go back up the stairs, drop down the other hole(SW Corner), kill, then run back around and up the stairs drop down SE hole again and repeat. This is just more running then is necessary. I found it easier to kill the 3 spawns after dropping down the SE hole.

I would kill the one near the Morbolger spawn, then back track and kill the one near beetles(you may have to continue going N a little down stairs to find it) and then back track some more to where you dropped down the hole and kill that one. By then, run back up to the first spawn and if you get back up there under 12 minutes, kill the elemental and/or Napalms in the West room before you can exit to Latheine. They drop a Flame Degen, but also a horrid drop rate. By then, the the first Stroper Chyme you killed should be back up and repeat.

You can kill 3 Stroper Chymes 15 times within an hour on 12 minutes spawn timers without competition. I killed about 40 with no drop, while getting one stack of slime oils with some minor competition.

This was with TH. I even ate my Four-leaf bud due to rumor I heard you need to eat it to get better luck. Best I got was 2 slime oil drops on one mob.

I was trying to get it for my lvl 30 Nin I am lvling for a sub. Was going to combine it with my Venerer ring at 34 but totally just said it wasn't worth +2 ACC/Ra ACC.

Good luck and my current record is 0/40!

Just went out to Ordelle's caves today as 47THF. I got to the chyme's spawn spots, killed one, no drop. Even without capped marksmanship and sleeping it for shadows it wasn't too hard (evasion bonus wins!). Anyway, I'm about 0/5 on this, and that's with TH2. I quit because I didn't bring enough sleep bolts and I ran out. Gonna try again tomorrow though, maybe I'll have better luck.

drop rate
# Mar 20 2007 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
ok here's my 2 gil.
I just helped a friend with a TK (odardpm) and so me (SMN70/WHM35) went to try our luck for them (my way needed em.)

Well we get to ordelle's caves, got into the H-12 drop at the top, and killed the chyme there no drop.

We try this for an hour and no luck. Yet as soon after, we try something that works... Earth Crusher > Banish II > wait 10 > then SATA evisceration. Well we keep doing this and they drop quite easily, 3/100 so far.... and there u go!

Dont give up hope, these things are much better than paying 1 mil for archers ring, in the time it takes to farm an archers on my server, you could get them both! so GL to all guys and happy campin!

How much this baby going for?
# Mar 08 2007 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
You can not sell these. Anything with EX are not sellable or tradeable and you can have MORE then one on your character. Rare items are sellable and tradeable and you can only have ONE on your character. RARE/EX items are not sellable or tradeable and can sometimes have more then one depending on the item. I'm sorry you were mixed up. It took me quite some time to get myself one. I hope this information is correct, I would appreciated it if someone could correct me.

You can't sell or buy this ring, Sorry.

one of the only lucky things thats hapened to me in this game...
my friend and I went into the cave looking for some shikaree rings, we found out that the drop rate is VERY low and it is almost impossible to get two drops. He was a 58 rng/thf and I am 62sam/thf, he ended up dying geting claim with low HP. I got one drop after a handfull of kills the next time i loged on in that zone, and on my way out i passed another chime in a tunnel and decided to kill it, since i went the wrong way and had to turn around, and it ended up droping ANOTHER shikaree ring! I fliped...two drops in 5-10mins, unheard-of with this NM.
My TH2 must be broken.
# Jan 13 2007 at 7:58 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah I took out my 50THF/25NIN last night with a couple friends and got my first ring within 20 kills. Then, SOMEBODY in the party says hey that wasn't too bad we should get the second one within the next hour. 9 Straight hours later... Oh I WILL be going back.

Me and a few friends of mine, Usasuke and Lockdown went out one time, didn't even know that Stroper Chyme dropped that ring, drop rate 1/8 or so. Gave it to Usa. That was almost a year ago.

Today, went out with Sizzlechest to farm for Flame Degens. Killed Stroper Chyme about 5 times, 1/5. Grats Sizz on that lot. ^^

1/46 without thf
# Dec 06 2006 at 10:49 PM Rating: Decent
53SAM/RNG, I got this drop: 1/46. This was without THF of any sort.

My SAM/WAR Friend had a THF with him and told me he was 2/130-ish.

Fighting at my level, I did have a little bit of difficulty. I subbed /RNG so I will know where they have spawned. I would rather have RNG then /THF in this situation because running from the 1st spawn all the way to the 4th spawn and realizing someone else already killed it is a huge waste of time. I like to know WHERE it is and if it is already dead. Just preferance though. Sure, I might have recieved the drop sooner, but it would have taken me longer to know where the next jelly spawned and when.

Two jelly fights as 53SAM/RNG (my currently highest level as of this date) can lower me down to low health. After two fights I will have to rest or use some sort of HP Regen. I fought with Seigen (sp?) so I can use Third Eye to dodge the majority of the jelly's attacks.

You CAN (it is true) have two of these rings on at the same time. It is a great way to kill time while you wait for party invites. Be sure to say in your search comment that you have a warp out of there. Going in without a warp out can cause you to be late to your party if you farm while waiting for a PT.

When you come up to the areas where these monsters spawn, you will notice there is a wall/ledge you can't get up. Go back one room and you will notice on your map, a little path leading south. Take that and you will see holes in the ground. these holes lead you to the higher ground on the floor below. Don't take the first one on the left and right side of this room, take the ones at the dead ends.

There are four spawn points. Two on the floor where you to fall down holes to reach, and two on the stairway to the right of the right room (from the first floor). Using a Bow and Arrow is a slow claim if your trying to outclaim someone, Dia or provoke is fast. RDM can get good and fast claims with fast cast ^^.

Goodluck! If you have any questions PM me. I'm Redpage from the Fenrir server.

I forgot all about this post! Looks like I also forgot my password to Dasutin! @.@

Anyway, on topic. I still use this ring, I only have one though. I use it on my Summoner. It's helpful most of the time, but since I am a mage I have indeed found a ring more suitable for my Party roles that I play. It's wonderful for soloing, which is something to do quite often on my Summoner. I keep this ring on me at all times just in case. It's also great for Skill-Ups. I'll get another ring when I pick my Samurai back up ;)

Sucky Drop Rate. I went 1/100+. But now I'm going to try camping a 2nd for my lvl 30DRG. Hope it wasn't a ***** like the first drop...0/50++ atm. >_<;;

WOOT, I finally got my 2nd. ^^ It realls help in 30 cap stuff, like ballista. I use it for NIN, DRG, and even whm when I solo as /nin.>>;\
Attempts at two Shikaree Rings
# Oct 19 2006 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
Round 1: 1/26 ^^ (here's where I thought it'd be easy)
Round 2: 1/120 -_-; (this one took awhile)
Total: 2/146

This was done used SUB thf.

Here's my advice on this since the drop rate is sooooo crappy.

After 50 kills LEAVE the zone. Take a snack break or something and just pull yourself together for 10 minutes or so. After that walk back into the zone and resume the killing!
