OWNMs are Open World Notorious Monsters. They're open world battles with Wyvern NMs that drop BCNM loot. They are challenging, but rewarding, providing a way to get BCNM loot without doing BCNMs.

Players who have never experienced an OWNM are recommended to join an experienced group before they form a group of all new players.


OWNMs are named after a nearby monster
  • OWNMs loot tables match the loot table of their corresponding BCNM
  • Your party will be level sync'd to their level
    • You will need a party and a working strategy. Face tanking them, especially the lower level ones, is particularly difficult due to their breath attacks.
    • OWNMs are RDM Wyverns that also use all standard Adamantoise-family weapon skills, instead of the typical Wyvern moves.
  • Time and party size impact their drop rates
    • Alliances and going over time (15-25min) results in 0 drops
    • Below 50%, they Cure themselves periodically
    • While Nasomi claims that TH has no effect, some say it may have some effect.
  • They respawn after 12 hrs.


BLM Burn

The ideal party setup for taking down OWNMs will almost always include some form of kiting. BLMs are able to do damage from afar, and can do significant amounts when they need to, allowing them to swap aggro from each other and kite more effectively.

  • You will need a RDM for Gravity. This is essential. You might even want a 2nd one, or perhaps a SMN with Leviathan available to backup Gravity. Gravity will need to be kept on the OWNM at all times. The OWNM may have Blink up before you begin fighting, so start the fight with diaga or another AoE instead of Gravity.
  • Use consumables. Yagudo Drinks, and food like Fruit Parfaits are going to ensure that you meet the damage threshold easier, as well as more consistently do damage.
  • Use Burn to reduce the OWNM's INT to help with nukes.
  • Kite around an object, not just out in the open. This will cause the OWNM to re-calculate pathfinding over and over, which might cause it to reverse direction, and save you time you would have spent kiting, doing damage. The stone fence next to the Rolanberry Fields OWNM40 is one good example.
  • An extra person, outside the party who can gather up the nearby monsters who might aggro your party while resting, can be helpful and open up areas for kiting.
  • Try to stay separated so that Diaga doesn't hit more than his target, allowing the other BLMs to rest.
  • That being said, rest as much as possible. Don't waste time running around with 0 MP unless you're the one kiting at the time.
  • Ninja subjob may be effective if you have access to Utsusemi: Ichi, allowing you to survive if it gets in range after a botched Gravity. Dual wield will also improve your damage by giving you access to another +INT wand.

This strategy can be done using any form of ranged damage where the caster or attacker is safe from immediate danger, but was written more specifically with BLMs in mind.
