Bad, Horrible, Repressed Memories...
# Jun 12 2008 at 6:17 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, ive had some bad run-ins with the Sea Horror, but one in particular i will always remember:
It was Saturday. I was sitting on the upper deck, leveling my fishing skill with
difficulty, as i usually was. I had just caught a bluetail, and my skill leveled to 30, and i began to think my day would be uphill from here...Until i heard some poor fisher scream in /sh "HOLY JUMPING FCUKING SH*T BALLS" and then this in the chat box:

The Sea Horror hits Nero for 452 damage.
Nero was defeated by the Sea Horror.

I turned, and lo and behold, the fearsome demigod that was the Sea Horror stared me right in the face. Remembering what i had heard from a friend, i stood absolutely still. A taru that had been standing beside me ran, and to my suprise, the Sea Horror ran right past me and devoured him like a fat man eats a twinky: All in one bite. A hume ran right toward me with the Horror in hot pirsuit, so i did what any self-respecting 45SAM would do: Put up Seigan + Third Eye and run like a mother****er. I ran through the door, down the steps, and into the boarding corridor. I thought i was safe, until that dumb Hume ran in with me with a sliver of health, and died right at the entrance. As soon as it killed the hume, it slowly made its way toward me, then activated something that will haunt me for the rest of my days:

Hundred Fists.

So, i got raped. VIOLENTLY.
A wise man once said: see no evil >.<, speak no evil =X, hear no evil 0.o, have NO fun.

And i live these words truly throughout my life.
For those who haven't seen...

For those that have never seen a pirate attack and your imaginations are running wild it's like this. There are no cutscenes, but another exact replica of the ship comes up and pulls right next to your ship with three cloaked smn type humes standing on the edge. No sky turning dark, no **** washing over the deck or anything. Everything is the exact same except now another ship is right next to you.

Anyway, they do their summon motion and a few crossbones appear on deck, maybe three. When you kill one off, they summon pose again and another one appears. If there's a smn hume on the other deck that's wearing what looks like a Vermillion Cloak, Blackbeard or Silverhook will appear, again with no cutscene.

They'll stay on for a while, then they despawn in a little warp-like vortex. The smn turn around and the ship pulls away.

Also, the music changes during the whole ordeal. Not quite as intense as BCNM music or empty boss, but it let's you know there's badguys on board.

there are now 2 boats from mhaura, one to Selbina...

...and one to Aht Urghan Whitegate (new expansion areas) you got on the wrong boat is my guess, to use that boat you need the expansion and the "Boarding Pass" quest complete.

I was on teh beta as a lv 17 war. Well I was fishing and heard one of the guys scream "OMFG PIRATES! PIRATES! GET BELOW DECK IF YOUR UNDER LV 30!". I didnt me and a few others stayed in teh cabin. There was a total of 30 people from valkrum on there, when tehy did spawn the 2 highest lv guys attacked there was 1 lv 56 and 4 lv 40's. It was a sweet battle, sadly black beard spawned and so did a sea horror and a phantom. Talk about luck, some lv 46 guy and his buddy got sick of us and lured the mobs inside. The bloodshed was unrivaled everyone died. When the boat docked, some lv 8 noob was like "Omg, okay guiys we are defiantly not going on this boat.". We did get a raise a party of lv 30's came and raised us. Yes this is on the beta server on 360.
Absolute virtue is a bige ole jerk.

Found a new nm on the boat while i was doing pirates for sand charm. Comes out with pirates named blackbeard. It knows the spell Burst and thats all i know cause 73blm took the aggro. Blackebeard destroyed the blm. blm couldnt get a spell off. i wasnt about to try if a 73blm couldnt >.> i wonder what it drops. i couldnt get pic, and looked at nm list and he isnt there.

I think theres a new NM on the boat that comes with the pirates..i got killed by it (55 PLD) and also a 60 PLDgot killed as well. Neither of us put a dent in him. Should have taken a pic of it, its name is silverhook. Didnt show up on the mob list so i guess i should post it here. Looks just like the other skeletons that pop but bigger ; ;

edit: just looked at the posts on the mob list nvm..

hehe, all those storys were hilarious. I too have had my own bad incounter with the Sea Horror. All though i didnt die, i did get the crap scared out of me. I found out the hard way that when the sea horror spawns, do not run into the top deck room where the guy is steering the ship. Aparently, the sea horror can see you in there. Just ask my little taru friend who didnt make it out alive that day. Lol i managed to escape and ran down stairs where i waited like a baby.

4/20 Update Patch changed fishing... Its nice they added like 2 songs with trying to catch a fish.... But on the boat you now can pull up mobs on the stairs... for those who do not know, fishing on the stairs was the safest spot to NOT pull up a mob... now fished up monsters run rampant on the boat and longer down time for fishing (killing fished mob + fishing tiredness)... I was fishing up nebimonites at the time... i usually get good skill ups on them and a steady catch, not any more. I also think the price of neb's will have a BIG price increase; last time i checked was 9k stack in Bastok then after patch it was 12k stack in Windy ( yes its two different Cities ).
The only good thing I saw while fishing is: FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ----- SEA HORROR got whats coming to it.... 3 lvl 70-75 killed it ^_^ I think it was a RNG, MNK, NIN
2nd thing is: I pulled up lotsa crabs that drop the bronze box... I guess more peps can get that quest completed.

The Mhaura to Selbina ship can be quite the pain, but it's a pretty fun trip if you've got a sense of humor. ^^ I used to make the voyage when I was a newbie (level 10-20-ish Thief), died once or twice to the Sea Horror and have had the pirates attack several times.

Generally speaking, unless you're a suicidal White Mage with Reraise like I am (or just bored and don't care about death), don't fish while you're on the voyage. Chances are you won't catch anything, but there's always a possibility that you'll end up with something nasty. Nevertheless, if there are high level characters on board, you'll generally be safe. ^^

If you're interested in simply getting to your destination, there's an empty room in the main cabin. Hide there and you're safe to go AFK and make some hot cocoa. ^^

Just my thoughts and have fun on the ship!

lol. /hide
I was on the ship trying to get some pirates with a friend and there was a noob returning from the dunes to windy. we advised him to stay downstairs and wait for the trip to expire. both my friend and I were sneaking about fishing and waiting for the pirates and sea horror popped. apparently the room in the back wasn't enough to hide form him that day cause about 10 seconds after he popped he was bound for the door. and a second or two later we saw the horror had himself a snack, sad thing was guy died right before we landed and didn't wait for a raise. curiousity killed the mithra. if horror pops /panic I have been killed by him like 3x's now. twice as a noob and once while I went afk for about 3 seconds. I was like level 45+ and he still one shot killed me. sneak up, stay down, live another day.

I really don't want to sound like a newbie, but I have a question: Does the Sea Horror look like a normal Kraken-type monster, or is it different? I hear all this hype on it, and I know it's a Mhaura-Selbina ship NM, but does it look any different? And what level is it? Please help me *(/_\)*

I ran into pirates today, on a lightningday or it coulda started at 20:00 the day before lightningday, I dont remember.

I am a 43 Samurai / 21 warrior. Im not sure if ship wights are pirates, but they are easy prey to me. I fought the ship wight at the same time all the crossbones spawned. I killed a sea monk, then a ship wight, then a crossbones, and I had 100hp left. Then without resting again I fought another crossbones and when I just needed 1 more hit to kill it... It killed me.

There was alot of commotion going on, but as far as I could tell, Pirates do not link.

I work night on the East Coast so when I take the ship it is always late and there are very few ppl on the trip. One time about 4:30am Earth Time, I was comming back from Selbina.. there were 5 ppl on the ship. I was a lvl 16whm/8blm and guess what spawns... the Sea Horror, it was the greatest thing that I have ever seen in the game so far. Regardless to say I stayed the heck away from it.. but there were only 5 ppl on board. I'm up top by the captain hold watching down and out to of the corner of my screen I see two ppl, a rdm and nin in their AF armors. We had been traveling for a while so they didn't have long.. Just as we were boarding bam! the Horror goes down! We all cheer, but I got hit by the AoE that it has, 162 point.. leaving me with 5hp...lmao All I wanted was a picture...:)
First Boat Ride

I took my first ride on the ship yesterday. I have been playing for some time but never took the ship as I have choco'd or use a craig for my traveling. Had someone who was around level 6 ask me for escort from la theine to windy so I decided it was time for a boat ride. We boarded and were about to arrive in mhaura when I saw a ghost spawn and agro the person I was with so I took it out. The real fun was on the return trip to selbina. Nothing much happens for the first few minutes except for some fisherman pulling in a few ocean pugils then I hear the music which I learned was a warning the pirates are coming and a taru mages yells for everyone under level 30 to hide. I was with the captain and went out to check them out. Luckily no Sea Horror, there were about 8-10 crossbones and ship wights and a sea monk that were running around. They all checked to weak so I started beating on a ship wight and the taru sends me a tell that he is trying to get the the ice spikes scroll to drop and would I please let him kill them all. I told him no problem,I was just messing around anyway. He procedes to go through all of them and asked me at one point to take out a crossbones that was casting spells on him which I did. He didn't get the drop but it was fun. I'm glad I didn't find out about the pirates at a lower level as I would have been below decks as well. Still would be if it had been a sea horror.

The Ice Spikes scroll actually drops from the ghost you mentioned had spawned off the first ride, not the skeleton pirates. Not that it's an easy drop, either. I swear I'm 0/15 or more on that stupid Phantom. ;_;

Pirates AND Horror?

I remember one of my early ship rides we were attacked by pirates. Wisely, as a 20ish BLM, I hid in the captain's cabin. Even as a shorty Taru I got a great view of the battle raging on deck. :) But I remember also seeing what I thought was the Sea Horror, at the same time. I was talking excitedly with my LS about it, and most were surprised. A few said they were pretty sure it could never happen and I should double-check. Well, when I was finally able to get a target on it I discovered it was only a Sea Monk. Disappointing. >_>

So I have a question: is it possible? Could the Sea Horror pop during a pirate attack, or vice versa? Anyone seen this? Because, I mean, if that happened, that'd have to be the worst boat ride ever....

It could always be coded that way, as to prevent particularly awful boat rides.... Of course there's no real necessity to prevent that, so you have a point too. I guess I just want some first-hand "I saw it!" story. Because those are always good. :)

Well, I found out the hard way that the Sea Monks can open the door to the captain's cabin. o.< I don't see why any of the others shouldn't be able to. Though when pirates attacked during my ship ride they stayed down on the deck wandering around aimlessly. Not sure about down in the cargo hold area, though.

Level 30 can't kill pirates...

I'm level 30 heading to Valkrum for the Bard quest completition. I decide to take the boat just for some old memories and maybe meet up with my arch nemesis the pirates. Turns out they come on up and board us. I check the "Ship Wight" and they're "Incredibly Tough" so I decide they are a bad idea. I check the "Crossbones" and they're "Decent Challenge"'s. I provoke one up the stairs to prevent links and start to beat it up. I got it down to about a quarter health and I was at a half. The thing does "Bloodsaber" and turns the fight to the worst. I have practically no health, the Crossbone has almost all of his, and a Ship Wight decides to link. Well I can't obviously hold up to that much hurt so I'm killed. A bard and a whm both in AF1 saved the day for me and the level 8 warrior. I get a raise on the ship and I'm off to Valkrum.

you were dead even if he hadn't used bloodsaber.
Undead are Blood Aggro meaning your half hp and his quarter hp would eventually lead to your orange hp which would make the other pirates on the ship "Smell" you.

don't try taking these out at lower levels even if you think you can get one up top or inside without linking, a DC or EP can still = Death for you when you suddenly get swarmed from 40 feet away with a bunch of undead

Stay inside the hold.

Most of the time going up on deck is safe. Just keep an eye out for stuff that spawns on the deck, and don't ever fish.

It's when you start seeing those 'Sea Horror hits PoorBastard for 425 points of damage. PoorBastard was defeated by the Sea Horror.' messages scrolling by in your window that you should run back to the hold and just sit there.

Or if the music changes (not just stops. Changes). That's pirate time. Run to the hold. ^^;

Needless to say when we got to Mhaura, the dock was filled with dead bodies. About 3 or 4 players trained skellies, ghosts, and 1 Seamonk to the lower cabin area.

I have never seen so many dead bodies in my FFXI life.

On my first trip ever on the ship we were attacked by pirates. I cowered in the hold with my lvl18 BLM.

On the return trip the Sea Horror spawned and killed me when it chased someone down to the hold. You're not safe just behind the doors to the deck. Run and hide as far below decks as possible (or cast sneak on yourself to avoid being killed if you're below level 70 and this thing spawns.

If you should ever get killed you're actually still okay as lots of high lvl players ride the ship back and forth all day to fish and kill pirates/phantoms for their drops, so your odds of a raise are extremely good. I've never seen a pt board the ship to take the sea horror though.

I've been attacked by pirates twice. They are undead and generally undead seem to only spawn at night outside. So if you want to be attacked, I suggest riding the boat at night.

If anyone has been attacked during the day, please post to let me know.
Nothing to say.

I've haven't tried it yet myself but I was wondering if it's possible to ride the boat back and forth after only paying once. I only ask this because I took the boat from Selbina to Mhaura and they asked me if I wanted to proceed through the gate. So if I chose not to go through the gate could I stay and get back on the boat again without paying?

You can ride the boat as many times as you like once you pay the fare untill you talk to one of the characters that lets you out of the loading area. This also goes for Airship rides.
Is the lower deck safe???

I was on the boat once and we were on the lower deck. I thought that it was safe there but it seems the sea horrors will come down if provoked! I'm looking for a confermation of this because it might have been just a fluke

The sea horror attack through walls and ceiling... so even if you are below deck and decide to move and make noise you can be killed...

Not really, the Sea Horror will only come downstairs if someone went upstairs, aggroed it, and survived long enough to get it within aggro range of someone downstairs, and that is getting it at least 1/2 way down the stairs. If it is upsatirs you can freely move about the bottom level, just dont go upstairs and get near the door as it can aggro through the door as it aggros by sound. ~.^

Anyone know if the pirate attack or whatever it was has been removed from this? and if so is it permanent or temporary? rode the boat a couple times recently and no pirates.

I road the boat for the first time today, and was attacked by the pirates. Very interesting. On a side note. I was also attacked by the Twinkling Treant. Been a wierd day for Final Fantasy.

It's still in the game, but it doesn't happen each time.
