I camped black coney with no competition for about 2 hours as BST/NIN. I figured I would need some TH help, so asked a friend to join me. He said he suspected his MNK had TH, so he came MNK/DNC. I popped coney before he got there, he zones in at the last 20%, coney dies, sbow drops.

Solo'd as RNG 75 with difficulty for all of my kills, 1/5. If you plan on soloing on RNG, you have to know what you're doing.

Bring acid bolts, TONS of sleep bolts, blind bolts, bloody bolts, darksteel bolts. Keep Coney debuffed with acid 100% of the time. Be sure to NEVER wake him unless you have 2 or more shadows on, and always sleep him before you recast shadows, (ie; sleep bolting to recast shadows > weaponskilling or acid bolting.)

If your HP gets low, don't panic. Just shadowbind with AF gloves, move far away to recast shadows and wait for their cooldown to be up before breaking bind. Use bloody bolts and sleep bolts together, forget using acid/blind/weaponskill if your hp gets low, only use bloody/sleep combination if you are in trouble.

I primarily used Othinus' Bow but also had a Repeating Crossbow for sleep/bloody spamming. One of the biggest problems was agroing and avoiding the nearby raptors, so keep Reraise up for all of your attempts.

Went and popped Black Coney last night, official tally is 1/7 with no form of Treasure Hunter at all. Was killed easily with 2 BSTs using local Raptors as pets, then finishing with local Rabbits in the area.

GL to everyone needing this. Sure as hell beats camping Eastern Shadow and wasting much of your IRL time as well as in-game time.

0/7 /cry

Did they change the drop rate on this or am I that unlucky?

BTW, white coney, 2nin, 1pld, 1thf with TH3 and me whm. So I think TH 3 is broken.

Sunday morning checked moon, was 2% so i decided to go check on NM. I was reluctant to go because i'm 0/8 on Vali's bow. Anyways popped Black Coney, he only used AoE once and went down easy as 75nin/war. Bam!-Sleave obtains Selene's Bow! Holy crap 1/1!!!
Happy r/e hunting! Someday Vbow will be mine!

1/1 Othinus Bow
1/1 Loxley Bow
1/1 Selene's Bow
0/8 Vali's Bow
0/25 O-kote

That guy who said 0/44 i feel your pain. I'm 0/45 atm. I don't know what the hell my problem is. I'm super lucky for some things, and super unlucky for others. For example, 1/1 astral 1/1 O Kote UNLUCKY -> 1/28 Bounding Boots
0/32 Monster Signa and 0/45 on S Bow. The lovely Lynna most of the time solos the rabbit as RDM/BLM doing the nuke/sleep technique verting once with me ds cure V her. Other times i have her and sereth fight it. And other times my neecwa Crimm. Last time i did this i had Sufirax (75NIN) and Jayx (75THF) KCLUB FTW! myself and lynna. we were 0/8 then i had my buddy Dreamewalker (THF75) join us. 0/5 until people had to go. Shortly after i came back with Lynna and we went 0/2. Can anyone tell me is there a trick? Do I logout after each kill? what do i do!!! I'm 60 RNG atm. Not really wanting to continue because War Bow+1 is getting old and im not paying that kind of money for E Bow. Also imo, S Bow is better. You can vary between foods to boost RA and Ranged Accuracy considering the moon phase. Anyway... PLEASE. PLEASE! Someone help me. I'm about to shoot myself.

Just got mine today

drg went 0/2 while I was there before me

Then I (75War/Nin) Nerzhul (75Blm/Whm) and Penanance (75Whm/blm) popped it 6 times and went 0/6.

Then we got a Thf there with TH3 and went 1/1. That really helped

P.S. could have been done fairly easily with just war and blm but brought along whm just incase for links and what not which did happen a few times.

Happy hunting!

1/4 on Black coney. 57 rng (me) and 75 Ranger (Tav).

Sleep bolt method, but mine wouldn't stick so it only woke him up. Tav solo'd the rest, no problems. Tav, thank you. Good luck everyone.
Amazing Bow!!

Just got this bow today as a 63 RNG! I went 1/7 on drops. It was just me (75 RDM/WHM) and friend Eon (75 RNG/NIN). We used Sleep bolt strategy and every fight went smoothly!

I partied with another hume RNG/NIN my level with Eurytos' Bow, and I thought I was in for it... little did I know my new Selene's Bow would kick ***! Heres why: The average of +15 ranged accuracy! I can use yellow curry instead of squid sushi +1 and replace some ranged accuracy gear with ranged attack/STR. Meanwhile the Eurytos' Bow user was stuck using sushi and and ranged accuracy gear. :) I was hitting Colibri for 137 she was hitting for 129, sidewinders of high 800s, hers high 700s. sooooo I'm basically pretty happy I got this bow!

Not to mention I saved 3 mil :D

hehe got this bow friday night and im sooo happy. I have neither the patience to camp vali's or the money for E.bow. Me as 74 blu/nin and my friend lilmagex as 75 rdm/nin we went 1/12 which i guess is a pretty good rate from what ive seen in the posts. It was a very easy fight onry trouble we ever has was when it used snow cloud and paralyzed us. We missed 3 claims to another pt they had nin popping it with his nin cheater boots. We missed 1 more claim to a 75thf/nin but he soon found out paralyze>solo thf we ended up saving his **** and he stayed to help us claim him for a few more pops. My rng is onry 52 now and i cant wait to equip this baby ^^

1/16 on the black coney. First stint I went 0/8 with no TH. Second try 1/8 with TH3. At 75, Rng and Nin can duo without too much trouble, though is nice to have a third, especially someone who can paralyna if you fight the black coney.
# May 24 2007 at 4:39 PM Rating: Decent
Solo'd most of them as RNG65-75 always had Euryto's bow but since I got this I use this all the time in merit PTs with Red Curry I can do 1800-2000 damage sidewinders on Nyzul Isle. Since Ebow is stronger im thinking of going back to that.
About time!
# Apr 14 2007 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
Finally got drop 1/19. Most of the time I was solo so thats why I'm not like 1/40+. Decent bow I had a Euryto's and Gendawa +1 but sold them both. A free bow before pricey ones!

Most Japanese players that I've met or compete with in FFXI are friendly and kind. This BLM guy seems to be different though. It's quite hard to believe this guy did such thing (apparently , by holding the NM alive for a long time, it's very likely that the person is planning something nasty, or is pulling a dirty trick, right?) but it was even more shocking when I saw him cursed us in Japanese ([Hiragana] mixed with English characters, saying "NA[no kusodomo]si[ne]wwwwww" which my friend said it means "stupid NA, go die")

I hardly ever laugh on someone else's misfortune, but tonight I was so glad that the Black Coney dropped this bow for us, not him (yet).

If he hadn't been that nasty to Lu, he would have offered the bow (or the claimed NM) to him (because I and my bro couldn't reconnect at the moment).

- edit -
Just want to add a thought about the drop rate.... It seems completely, insanely random. O_o

Our setting was Lu (NIN/WAR), RNG/NIN, and MNK/THF. The first time Lu claimed and the bow dropped he wasn't in our PT, though.

2/15 for me, Black Coney definately easier than White. One tip though, make a macro for the carrot e.g.

/item "San d'Orian Carrot" <t>

This will make it easier to pop mob when you are competing for spawns with another party. ;)

White Coney only has one TP move, Wild Carrot. That's all it will use and it will spam it every time it gets 100 tp (the instant it gets 100 to it will use it immediatly) Black Coney is technicly a weaker mob however it will use all the nasty rabbit moves while white coney will not.

White Coney can be soloed easily by RNG or THF by plugging it with sleep bolts till you get 100 tp, using a WS and repeating the process. The only thing it will ever use is wild carrot so if you ***** up and miss a sleep bolt it's not going to pwn you with whirl claws or somthing.

I got this today from Black Coney; was a lot easier than White Coney. I'm 1-9 on ths NM. With all the rmt's camping Eastern Shadow; this is the best bow to get besides E.bow. Look at it this way; you save 5mil for it. Same thing just racc and ratt varies by moon.

75RDM/37DRK my rng was 7k from 60 and I merited the hell out of arch. Every one was scared to help me due to wild carrot and past attemps when the NM 1st came out that ended badly, so I disided i would just sleep nuke it. Whent down increadbly easy the thing has like 0 MaDef it don't link and the only way you will aggro rapters is if you freek out and try to run away. I went /drk to stun if it tryed to carrot but it never did go /blm and you will own this guy easy as hell, don't know about the black wabit though.

Got this on first battle but got out lotted on it by a Ranger who can't use it yet. >.< Much easier to kill Black Coney than White by the way unless you have a lot of mages.

Got this on Seraph Last Night. Thanks to the Money Machine LS! 1/8 Vs. Black Coney for the Bow. Party of 6:
BLM/RDM 75, MNK/WAR 70, DRG/WHM 70, BLM/WHM 64, WHM/SMN 60 and myself RNG/NIN 60.

Things to note:
1/ Make sure you move well away from the Raptors when fighting this guy. They Wiped us all out Very fast on our firsts kill of the Bunny. Make sure you pull back to the wall where its safe.
2/ Make sure mages stay well well... well~ out of the AoE range. Its a nasty one. Almost one hitted the Whm.
3/ Building up 300% tp during the 15 min wait definetly helped. Made the fight alot shorter.

Thanks to the lvl 75 Whm who gave us all R3's. (Can't remember the name ; ;)

And i hope this helps =)
Sbow is nice, but

As a serious RNG i find this to be my bow of choice. I feel it has alround better dps no-matter what the moon.

if you are hitting for 200 a hit and landing 10/10 hits you're doing as much dmg as hitting for 240 and landing 8/10 hits and getting the ws dmg plus

this is an awesome bow but it is not end-all as any Real Rng would know. I honestly do a little more dps with holy bolts and O-bow in merit pts than i do with demon arrows and sbow.

I have 57+32 mnd from Osode - Suzaku sune-ates - Af pants (Scouter's berret optional and rarely used). My holy bolts hit for 150-170 + 30-50 per bolt and 200-250 + 30-57 with brd with 800-1200 slug shots(no brd). I can use sbow and demon arrow for just about the same dmg and blast out 1600+ sidewinders but that depends on the tank. The additional affect to the best of my knoweldge doesn't count to your hate so depending on the pt and it's tank i have to pick my amm wisely. But thats on imps and flies.

I can't always use bolts. In Luf*blah*blah* outside of Tav safehold i have to use arrows on big birds for real but holy bolts work a hell of alot better on rams.

Please pick and choose your ammo and weapons wisely. Nothing cool about a rng who does a 2000 dmn slug shot with a gun but spends 25min of every hour recovering from weakened.

btw, i only sub nin (sam on rare rare occasions)
