  • Drop rates on non-Thew Bomblet items are not depicted correctly.
  • Acidic Humus is not 100% drop, I have had several runs where it did not.

Our group found the ??? at the central eastern edge of H-8 --Radiogotem 20:54, June 27, 2010 (UTC)
Our group did 2 rounds, one with Thew bomblet, spinel, and acidic humus. Another with only the acidic humus. --KigenAngelo 21:18, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

We got 4x pop items within 1 hour of entering Abyssea. Very easy
fight, although he gets progressively harder the more times you fight
him. First 2 times we finished him easily. Third time we were hard
pressed to kill him before mp ran out (WHM + RDM fully merited convert).
Only managed 3 kills because another pt came and popped him while we
were resting. Only drop each time was Acidic Humus.
-SAM managed to tank him without too much trouble.
-RDM debuffs landed pretty easily, but BRD had trouble getting Elegy to stick.
-He doesn’t link with the other mandies.
-There’s a certain respawn time on the ??? that pops him (not longer than a couple minutes). --StefLakshmi 02:48, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
- Acidic Humus, used to pop another NM named Hedetat,
seems to be a 100% Drop. We've killed this thing 15+ times and it
dropped every single time. I believe that this may be the case with all
the pop NM's, similar to how the ZNM's work.

Trio'd it as Lvl80 Thf/Nin, Rdm/Nin, and Drg/Whm. Need lots of
evasion gear. Need to buff up with enhancements, especially hp. Used
gigant mantle / bomb queen ring for the first fight and had 1700 HP
before adding carbonara as a mithra Thf/Nin. For the second fight,
decided to go with pizza instead. Drg stayed out of range the whole
fight on the first fight, but the second he melee'd a lot more, and it
was much faster. The big danger is the TP move that debuffs you to hell,
and this created a problem when the Drg/Whm was in range, as the
Rdm/Nin couldn't -na. Its other TP moves did essentially nothing. Other
than the bad breath type move, only other concern is its high counter
rate and not-too-shabby accuracy when blind(II) is not on. Speaking of
debuffs, blind, slow, and para land easily. They wear quickish, so keep
them on. Drg/Whms primary function was hateless curing, which was very
effective given the high HP build of the Thf/Nin.
On top of enhancements, it's also good to buy temp items. Ethers helped
to speed up some of the fights, as the Rdm would nuke in between
convert cycles. Made a significant difference in kill speed. Went 2/3
thew bomblet, TH4. We were not able to exploit its "!!" weakness.


We duo'd this NM as RDM76/BLU32(That's me, gimp I know) and RDM80/WHM40. "Straight tanked" with -30% physical dmg taken in gear, Tavnazian Taco, Phalanx, and Cocoon(Def@652).
That NM was hitting me for about 0-40 dmg non-critical and 100 dmg
critical, which pretty much can be handled by a 350hp Stoneskin effect. Before we fought this NM, we bought HP and MP boost from the prospector, it did help a ton and making Petalback Spin become the only risk. The major damaging spells we cast on this NM were Bio III Poison II Blizzard III and Aero III. It took us about 30min using "DoT Nuke method" to take the NM down(RDM/BLU did not melee), was a very easy and smooth fight. We were 1/2 on Thew Bomblet.
P.S. It seems to have faster movement speed than +12% and resist both Gravity and Bind. -- MitoriAtUnicorn 18:02, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

  • Just did this as rdm/blu80 and rdm/whm 77, 36~41% -pdt, taco,
    just under 700 defense, capped phalanx, and didn't even bother capping
    SS. Was hitting for 3~20 without shield blocks, critting for 40~60, and
    shield blocks produced all 0s (didn't block any crits without stoneskin
    up, suspect 3~20). Didn't bother maxing out stoneskin, regen was
    overkill to keep HP capped off. Rdm/blu (me) meleed, only saw petalback
    spin once, plague didn't last long enough to be a problem (though the
    other rdm was close to convert when he used it and we spent a bit of
    extra time waiting for it to wear so he could get MP to vert). /blu
    really seemed like overkill on defense, if you're seeing these numbers
    I'd suggest /war or /pld. Did also mix in nukes with melee. Aok1313 20:47, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

standard pt setup

The point of this is to tell you how NOT to fight this NM
We failed with it at about 10% HP left and here is why. Do Not feed this
guy TP 2 many ppl swinging at this thing is a bad idea, he will use
Petalback Spin like crazy if fed to much tp and if u are silenced ,
paralyzed, amnesia and other things there is not much u can do, other
than that tp move he is too weak so keep in mind, do not feed him tp

edit Weakness

-Confirmed abilities that can trigger a weakness !! are:

  • Flash
  • Box Step
  • Tachi: Jinpu
  • Sunburst (Terrorized)

Well, since somebody was nice enough to randomly delete my edit from the main page, it's duoable by two RDMs. --Raen Ryong 13:54, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
