  • Timed Spawn from an hour to an hour and a half (60-90 min.) on repop after last death around E-9.
  • Appears on Widescan between a Goblin Butcher and a Goblin Ambusher below the listing of Sylvestre in the area
  • Can spawn only during Daytime. Depops if not claimed by nightfall (16:00 for this NM). If allowed to depop, pop timer is reset.
  • Hit my Warrior (sync'd to lvl.19) for 90-111, additional effect slow on one out of the four hits it took to kill me.
  • Confirmed an additional effect slow on hits, landed one on me after my 5th fight against him.
  • Can Double Attack like normal Mandragora, combined with the odd Additional Effect: Slow it took my lvl. 37WHM/BLM out in 12 hits. 35-47 for normal hits, 75 critical, wearing Magna gear.
  • Easily Soloed by 64SMN/32WHM Summoned Fenrir and used an extremely low Dagger (lvl.12).
  • Pretty easy solo by RDM54/BLM23 Had a slightly gimped sub but that didnt matter. Got drop. Ice Spikes helped a lot due to Paralysis.
  • Somewhat tough solo by 48THF/24RNG Used about 15 Bloody Bolts or it would have killed me. Also gave me 55 exp. Only had 5 pieces of gear equipped due to farming.
