    Ambusher Antlion

    Been searching around for information on this NM and cannot seem to find jack shit on where exactly he pops up other than E-8 or E-9. However this is pretty vague and I've heard horror stories of people trying to pop this for hours but failed due to being on the wrong crack or w/e. Tried to pop it last night with no luck, but theres so many cracks around E-8 that I thought I'd try here.

    Any specific info other than E-8 on this guy would be greatly appreciated. And yea, lolrng...

    Has 3 PH (from my experience) Well I killed all 3. However I do think it might only have 1 PH right next to citipati's spawn. The 2 times i've popped it, the PH didnt spawn from that crack (meaning NM is up). However the NM can spawn from 2 different cracks. 1 Crack next to the bushes west of citipati, and one across a gas barrior that goes down occasionally. Pics are from the first known kill of Ambusher, posted by someone awhile ago.

    The PH is the one by citipati, it is the only antlion that will stop popping at 5min'ish intervals.

    thers like this area in those rocks with a misty wall that comes up and down that blocks the way, south of it, theres a path on the east that has a little deadend smoke cave on the north side, thats where the PH is that stops popping, once it stops popping go rest on the crack south of the misty wall that goes up and down, if it doesnt pop, rest on the crack in the north area from the misty wall (where the scorpion and fly is) but not the crack with the little hill on it that pops another trench, its the crack directly south of that one.

    does that make sense? no? its annoying to figure out but the good news is once you do you can pop the thing in 30m whenever you want since no one camps it. too bad you only kinda need to pop it once.

    Until it was demonstrated to me and I saw it myself, I didn't believe it. You have to /rest on the crack where Ambusher is hiding in order for it to gank you. I note that it's pit ambush and mandibular bite have amplified damage now over other antlions (and itself previously, showing SE adjusted that at some point). It has the potential to do some huge damage on pop. Be ready to heal or put a pet on it fast.

    Hits like a cave antlion.

    There are multiple posts on KI that give very detailed info on how to pop him. How hard did you look for info again?

    Thats a good guide up until it says you can't solo/duo it. I duo'd it as NIN/WAR RNG/NIN

    Thanks for the help guys, took a little to figure it out, but managed to pop him fairly easy. Didn't have to kill any of the PHs either, just needed to rest on the right crack. Pretty easy fight too, killed with a rng whm and nin...but honestly with some patience would have been pretty easy solo/duo.
