  • Lottery Spawn from the Trench Antlion at (F-8), the crack that backs into an empty room with the black smoke. NOT the one that has 2 Tracker Antlions.
  • The Trench Antlion has 6 spawn points. The one located on (F-8) is the placeholder. It spawns every 5 min, when he doesn't spawn, it means Ambusher is up.
  • After the Trench Antlion does not spawn, go and rest on the cracks outside of that room located in (E-8).
    • It has been known to take over 2 hours(sometimes fewer)for Ambusher to spawn.
  • Archer's Jupon drops 100% of the time.
  • If you attempt to kill it and fail, it will depop after returning to its spawn point. You 'will' have to kill the place-holder to restart the lottery.
  • Has double attack.
  • Attacks quickly.
    • Killed by a party of 4 level 75's
  • (see testimonials)
  • The Mandibular Bite he uses is unusually strong, doing above 1k on average.
    • When aggroed/popped he will use Pit Ambush, stripping Utsusemi and doing ~400 damage.
    • Mandibular Bite seems to increase in strength after ~20% HP.
