There is 1 giant bat before secret beach, 2 in the tunnel before gustav tunnel, 1/1 on my Night cape, took about 1 to 1 1/2 hour to spawn.--DarkTrance 11:07, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

This NM is rarely camped and with all my times "camping", it has popped in one or two rounds of respawns. If passing by Gustav for some reason, it may not be a bad idea to give it a quick go for a chance at a decent amount of gil (varies by server) --Azulmagia 17:23, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Spawned nearly exactly every hour. 1/3 on Night Cape: 1/26/09 Carbuncle 38WAR/19THF
  • Soloable by BLU25/DRG12 tarutaru with no buffs and no meds. Head Butt and Bludgeon spam. Prinnysmash 20:17, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

Was camping this with another DRK for Trial 217 and it didn't spawn for 8 hours, I'm not sure the max 5 hour limit is true. ~ Arouis - Valefor

Just camped this NM today for my Gsword trials, took me 11 hours in total for 3 pops. But some notes on it.

The three "apparent" PH's are mob ID:

  • 1CB, 1CA - Both of these spawn by the zone to Gustav Tunnel.
  • 1AB - This one spawns in the tunnel to the secret beach.

All 3 pops of Golden Bat used 1CA as the PH, he was the top Giant Bat on the widescan list out of the ones by gustav tunnel. Nil88 19:17, April 1, 2012 (UTC)

Camped for Trial 217. Pop came within 3 rounds of killing every time (after the 1hr respawn). As above, bat popped in exactly the same place every time. 1st one on the WS list, next to Gustav Tunnel. Was killing all 3, but I'm 99% certain that it's only one of the two next to Gustav Tunnel. For what it's worth, a Japanese player I camped with said their Wiki only has the two next to Gustav Tunnel listed as possible placeholders. --PrettyShambolic (talk) 17:15, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
