Rare Witchdoctor gear found on him

Black Jade Shenyi: Will +11, Resistance +35, gives revive card
Black Jade Jandals: Will+11, gives a critical hit card!

I assume he drops the rest of the set so happy farming!

I'm sad since the first time I defeated him I got less than 2000 gold and NO rare items.
I know that Friar gives out a lot of rares but almost all of the people in mooshu (if they are a boss) give out rares and lots of gold.

That may be true, but Friar Sand is not complicated to beat, as you only have to defeat him.
When you have 3-4 pirates working together, you get many mobs (more gold/chests/drops), and still only 1 enemy to defeat... Friar Sand.

Most other mooshu bosses require a bit more effort to defeat (including their minions), and dont have as good of mechanics for maximizing your loot (ie more pirates) without making the task harder (more minions).

some drops are very rare in his loot table. only takes 2-3 turns to beat this boss solo every time you add a teammate the adds get in the way and keep you from using your power moves and getting to him. about half the time the drop from boss chest is gold. the other times is a junk item from common table. He does have some amazing rare not seen on wiki loot too - many bosses have loot like this. I know of 3-4 weapon sets that drop from abe pagoda and there not on wiki. most amazing find moosho sparklock pistols! :-) amazing for a stitch! stats are ok 108-118 range 3 req lvl 45 often it might take 100's of times to get you drop sometimes just a few sometimes 1000's depends on how bad you want item xyz and so on.

If you don't want to farm "Sandy", then try the Temple of Ares in Aquila. It's got the same amount of gold in the chests there, and no bosses included.

It varies a lot though. It can go from 60 to almost 3 grand, but it is a good way to build up some gold when you want to get a companion leveled up for a fight. I run back and forth from that one to the one behind the building to the right of the tunnel entrance, switch realms and do it again

Additional info. I now include the chest I found behind the archery targets in the archery range. If you want some really good gold farm the 7 chests in Nova Aquila and in Ithaca. Running a circuit with 7 chests in it can get you rich quite quickly.

I got mine rather quickly in just a few battles, In fact I have three or four of them, but I have noticed that the drop rates really seem a whole lot lighter than they used to be. I know Ratbeard is prob gonna say that the loot tables haven't changed but they sure have swung to the light side for a long time.

I keep hearing a lot about Friar Sands, but I can't remember where or who he even was anymore. It's been a while since I've done anything in MooShu (now that I'm in Aquila).

Can anyone help jog my memory on where (and who) he is?

Friar Sand is in the Temple of the East Wind. To get there go to Subata Skyway to the Verdant Docks then to the Corrupted Shrine until you get to the Temple of the East Wind. Once you get to the Temple of the East Wind. There will be a sigil labelled "North Landing." Friar Sand is just inside.
