    it's not a lottery, so it can pop if you just sit there and dont clear other goblins. i'd estimate the drop rate at 20%.. mine took 12 kills (was really gay) but i know a few people who got it on their 1st, and most people get it around 4th/5th. there's probably no time that's better than any other, and..

    it's the best BLM earring in the game so you definitely want it

    1- A lottery pop is a NM that has the chance to pop from "placeholder" mobs in an area. Leaping Lizzie is a lottery pop from lizards in on a hill in South Gustaberg. Mysticmaker Bastarblix is not a lottery pop, it spawns on a timer every 2:00-2:30 hours from its last death time.
    2- The drop rate is hard to measure. Some people get it on their first or second try, others get it on their 10th. I would guess 20% is an ok estimate for it.
    3- Mysticmaker is a hard one to camp. I camped for a few weeks to get it, and there was a lot of compitition. I would guess Weekdays in the afternoon is a good time to camp it, but as I am not on at that time, I don't know how many other people are. (I would guess not a lot.)

    It is a very good earring, but especially good for Red Mages. A level 60 WHM can probably not solo it. At that level, you will get aggro from the other things in the room. I think I was able to roam around without aggro around level 65 or so. Also, be careful about goblins in the area that will link to mysticmaker.

    I'm speaking from Fairy server, however, I've camped this mob gotta be in the upwards of 20+ times for people getting this, including my own.

    1) It's not really lotto, after being killed, it has somewhere between a 2 to 4 hour respawn rate. It's not 2h exactly as a lot seem to believe, I've clocked this jerk at almost 4h once <.<

    For future reference: Lotto pop = after a certain period of time has passed, killing the PH (placeholders) of said mob-type can spawn the lotto-pop mob. (ie. Ose [I think?])

    2) Drop rate is so random I don't fully understand. I've had no drops with TH1/2/3 (yes, TH3), but had consecutive drops (same day, just waited for next pop) w/o any form of TH whatsoever (including items that supposedly give TH effects, such as Lucky Egg and 4-leaf mandra bud <- speculation-only). Kinda have your fingers crossed honestly. Took my 6th kill, some others I've known have knocked him down 13+ times w/o an earring.

    3) Best time to camp: (Please keep in mind I'm posting this biased on how Fairy server operates) Typically between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m EST is it usually dead as can be in Onzozo. Of course, there are other times during peak play hours where I've walked inside LoO, and saw Mysticmaker just standing there poking around, etc.

    -Per the BLM usage question, though I am RDM, it makes a slight difference, maybe not so noticable but RDM Elemental magic is shafted >.> A BLM friend of mine has it and it make his nukes a bit stronger.

    'bout the best I can offer, that mob's particular way of spawning (yes, it has a pattern last I knew <.<) is so predictable that if you watch it enough you'll know exactly where the next spawn point is. I've gotten 5 or so claims this way, took me forever to realize how easy it was.

    Disclaimer: given randomness there is a possibility the spawn pattern may alter due to whatever, so...no sense in telling it to you XD

    As a Blm I can tell you this is without any shadow of a doubt the best earring for Blm in the game. Receiving it provides you with the added damage of upgrading EVERY NQ Elemental staff you own to HQ, not too shabby huh? You'll see a 5% increase in damage from all your nukes, and it even works with Banish!! omgwtfbbq!12235t1!!eleven.

    I got it on my 5th kill, but I know many others that have gotten it on their first. But then again I know a person on my server that is currently 0/27 on this guy

    Incase you missed the above posts, this is the best earring for BLM in the game. I even know a WHM that even uses it for banish 3. >.>

    Actually the goblin enchanter in the room is the ph for him. If your camping it, and 2 hrs after his last death goblin enchanter is up, you need to kill it for him to pop, he wont pop if the goblin enchanter is up.

    P.S. Im saying gob enchanter from memory, its possible it has a different name, but it is the blm type gob in the room.

    Incorrect. The gob will spawn regardless of if anything is killed.

    Maybe it was just random that it spawned like this when i camped it for about 14 hrs total. Btw i never got one when i camped him, got lucky when waiting on a 6th while xping at around early 60s, jp rdm engaged it so the party helped him, and they let me have it

    The only reason to kill the gobs in that room is to prevent links. (Fun and profit too I guess.) Mysticmaker Bastardblix will pop regardless of how many gobs are in the room.

    Took me 3 tries but that last time I had a THF with TH3 on it.

    On Siren he pops 2:15 after kill. As stated like 300 times above he has no PH (don't see any BLM Goblins there do ya?)

    If you can find a RDM60 worth a shit, just sleep adds for him and let him solo it and stay the hell out of the way. I saw full 65 parties die to this gob 3 or 4 times when I camped it as an RDM58 *solo*. Bar-spells? {I don't understand}

    I killed it 8 times, sleeping all the links around it, and never had any issues. The only spells that do anything are the -aga2's, AM is a joke just as it always it (although that's how the full parties die, they have no way to keep their PLD alive.)
