Good morning,

I've been farming this guy over multiple days and haven't seen him pop once.

I'm starting to think he doesn't exist.

https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Okyupete

Anyone have any ideas on why he isn't popping? I kill every giant bird I see.

There's a specific placeholder for him, you only need to kill that one (but it's satisfying to kill them all).

He does take eons to spawn, though, and his drop rate is ***. Have fun.

Just gotta kill DF, long spawn times. Had to do multiple times for trial, so yeah, he exists.

Definitely pops. I just did this trial a month or two ago. Sometimes(most of the time...) he’s just really slow.

He can take up to 9 hours to spawn, perhaps longer.

One of those annoying NM's that doesn't want to come out and play.

Possible people are killing it as they run into Escha - Ru'Aun

This NM is frustrating because it seems to have a low rate of spawning from its placeholder. If in doubt, kill them all.

It shouldn't be taking 12 hours though, but I have been there a few hours before killing the PH when it was up and it wouldn't spawn, but there's a chance someone else had killed it recently. Many players have had to kill this NM for trials.

Random is random. You can roll no pop for hours and hours. The odds never increase.

It would've been nice to have progressive pop % or maximum windows, but they don't. Just keep going and you get it eventually.

Such an easy thing to have 2% pop increase per PH kill, maximum 50 kills and you know for a fact it must pop, but no one ever cared enough to make progressive pops (and drops) a thing.

This, Analbutt & along with Buttbear are the worst NMs to attempt to spawn in the magian trial mob paths.

IIRC, the PH is the first or last dyatrima in widescan in a group of 4, all of them close to escha entrance.

The PH can pop anywhere along the entire length of the area so it's even a pain in the *** to afk bot it unless using 2 chars.

I think the elusiveness of long open pop windows is great. Stop trying to get instant gratifications.. Part of the greatness of ffxi has always been the chase of NMs. I wish the old systems still existed. Making gear actually super rare was a fun part of the game. These days everyone and their 5 mules have everything the game has to offer....smh

I've done like 6 Empy weapons. This is by far the worst. This thing spawns right next to the homepoint for Escha Ru'an. So I believe people kill it if they see it, even if they don't need it.

Meaning you need to basically never afk for the entire respawn and hope you can grab it, if you see it.

Thank Altana I'm doing this in a group and not alone.

This is a very "I put up with this style of content years ago so new people should have to as well" mentality. More dated than a hillbilly backwoods mountain girl dates her brothers.

Wait until you get to my new meme character:



Edit: Ick. Double-post. Sorry. That's as tactless as someone bumping a 3,000+ day old necro. Don't cut yourself on all of that edge, by the way.

Its not that bad. I did it like 12 times at least (3 trials). Just kill right PH and remember it always spawn in same place



So wait there after every PH kill, so you wont miss someone else killing it without you noticing.

There is a common pattern on those no dropping/no popping threads:

1. Complains about a NM pop rate/item drop rate.

2. Tells its taking day, weeks to get done, some amount of time that has no suport in any FFXI source.

3. Tells hes doing everything right.

3. A couple hours late, the NM popped, the drop dropped.

You can understand this anyway you want.

Complaining about it is cathartic.

Did every empyrean, all the lotto nms sucked. Some took longer than others. Your experience will vary.

The secret is always multitasking.

Dont waste time or pay too much attention to a task that requires zero thinking. If you have a mule, drop it there then play something else while checking time to time if the NM pops. If you dont have it, just visit there, like before and after a bath, before and after dinner, lunch, snack, while waiting LS to gather to event, while you need to study, etc.

Eventually you gonna get, it will take longer, but it wont seems like it took too long.
