We went in 70RDM , 45PLD , and myself 44BRD . I have Base +26 CHR and capped singing skill and wind instrument (66CHR) . I could not land Elegy or Requiem on this guy at all . I used Threnody's and still no land , so I 2Hr'd because I just wanted to land something ... still no luck . He resisted Elegy and Requiem ... I managed to land all my threnodys regardless of instruments . So I just switched to stringed and skilled up on him . Only good thing was I could Ballad , Madrigal and Minuet .
45 , um NO

its an earth elemental of course u cant land elegy .. thats earth based. as for your requiem im not sure why it would not land, best guess would be high magical resistance since its an elemental.

Friend of mine was about to go solo this when I intervened. He is a 51 PLD currently and would not have survived most likely. So I went to help as 64 PLD/WAR. We killed around to build TP to 300%, buffed and then popped him. He showed up and I started off with a Spirits Within for 598 damage, dropping it to 20% or less. Friend used Seraph Blade, and then I tossed in a Holy and Banish 2, it dropped after a couple of hits afterwards. I say hit it before it can get stoneskin and etc up and you will be fine. Fight lasted no more than 30 seconds.

There's no way this thing is level 45! That's just dumb! I as a 64 whm got hit for over 150 damage by this thing, and I had Protect IV on and Stoneskin! He immediately destroyed my stoneskin, wiped out my pld hubby and then eventually creamed me... didn't even get him down halfway.

Ummm, duh!? You ever fought an Elemental before? They are strong to melee damage, and all around tough bastards anyways! One's that con at EP on any job I have, I have to prepare for, you can't be stupid and assume a Elemental is gonna be like other mobs. Besides it isn't really a 45, it's more like a 55 mob, but even then I really don't understand how you couldn't kill the thing when even if it wasn't a NM, it shoulda conned at TW for you >.> Did you forget to use any of your MP on this thing? If you did you probably woulda pwned it. Whm's can't melee that well, period.

Just killed Polevik earlier today(Well, late friday). From reading the posts here, I really did'nt think that our group was going to be able to beat this.

The Pld that needed his AF(Scaryman, 56pld) had died to this thing once before, and, though my level is a bit lower then his, I decided to help. He had another Monk on the way, so when he got there we headed out to Ordelles. We all built up 300%TP before he spawned the NM, and the other monk and I both boosted up for a Chi Blast at the beggining of the fight(280 something for me, 270 for Pyrobunny)

We then engaged, Bererked, and prepared to Hundred fists as that was the plan. Scaryman busted out a 577 Spirits within, and Polevik was dead.

We all thought we would wipe to this thing, so it was sort of odd to see him fall apart like that. Spirits Within dropped Polevik's hp rather fast, so I could'nt see an actual total. Im guessing that it's only 700-800 though.

Just helped a 41 pld in my LS with this... i destroyed this thing as DRG66/WHM33, not really a hard fight if you know what you're doing, only time me and the pld had a hard time was when the NM Stonega II'd, this would bring pld to red health... but wyvern would just keep his HP high enough to survive it again XD

In case anybody cares:
"The spirit of the field, as 'Pole' means field. The appearance of the Polevik was described differently in every region. Some saw him as a human man 'dressed in white'. Others saw him as having a black body and two eyes of different colors.

Just like Leshy (Spirit of the forest), Polevik enjoyed leading people astray. The Polevik strangled drunken Slavs that slept in his field, instead of working. To win the favor of the Polevik one could place two eggs and a **** unable to crow anymore, in a ditch.

In the northern parts of Russia they had no Polevik, but a Poludnisa, 'Poluden' meaning 'noon'. A tall, beautiful girl dressed in white. She enjoyed pulling the hair of peasants working in the midday. She also helped little children to get lost in the cornfields."

Slavic mythology is fun yesh?

I'm 63 PLD now but I love fighting Polevik. First time I tried it was me and a 62 WAR. The WAR was getting wasted and he warped out >< So there was me having to run from this guy. But I came back that night with a 69DRK/WHM which was badass btw. We took him out pretty easy. I came back a few months later with a PLD friend of mine. I started the fight off with a full Spirits Within and it dropped him to about 1/4 health. So it's a super easy fight if you have a 55+ PLD helping you trust me.

Myself (61 SAM/WAR) and a friend (61 RDM/BLM) Destroyed this thing in a matter of 3 minutes, just make sure if are helping someone with this, you have them stand back back far enough that they don't get hit with Stonega II. One thing i did notice is that this elemental seems to have an elemental defence equal to a normal elemental's physical defence, don't assume because its an elemental that nuking is the way to go.

Funny story to this NM. We had a lvl 44 PLD, 44 PLD (me), and BST 58. First we got lost sitting in the Stroper/Stroper Chyme room looking for the spawn point.... Wrong H-10 lol. the we went up the stairs near the holes and found spawn point.

Polevik Loves to cast;
Stonega II
Rasp
Slow

and that's what we had to deal with. the other PLD kept himself in range of Stonega II and it dealt 302 to him. Eventually he was killed because the thing insisted on spamming Stonega II, and the BST decided to kite the elemental.

A random lvl 54 WHM happened to be running around and casted Raise II on the fallen PLD. when the BST came back the Polevik was 1/4 HP, and the Crabfamiliar had done a great job. The BST insisted on killing it when the broth-mob died, and eventually killed it.

It was a struggle, but it was rather funny, and both PLD got the sword in the end =). We laughed it off on the airship back to Jeuno.

A THF was killed by this as I passed, and it aggroed me (71MNK), so I engage it. This thing only has about 600 HP, which is why Spirits Within can one shot it(50% HP, ignoring DEF). For the first 50% of its HP, it hits for about 80 and its DEF is normal for an Elemental.

After that it went nucking futs on me.

Its ACC increased greatly and it started hitting for about 150 DMG normal hits with 40 added Stone from Enstone. Not to mention its Stonega II damage nearly doubled, hitting me for about 400 per cast. Its DEF increased, me doing about 10 per hit to it. In the end, I won with about a third of my HP left. One hit and a Stonega and I'd have been munching guano, though.

Back a couple months ago i was in a helpful mood so I assist an upstart PLD in his quest for his Honor Sword (By the Way im a lev 58 PLD at the moment of this story) " And be being pretty confident thinking my new AF will help me kick this things ****"

Well i was mistaken!!

Me and the PLD i was helping were on our way to Ordelles Cave when my freind Yuraraina asked if she could help(then Hunt Stroper Chyme After) So i was like "Ok" She also being a PLD at 54 or 55 i cant remebere exactly

We head in to the Cave and our stratigy was to basicly have be and Yura duo the Mob with 2 Spirits within at 300%. And after whe got tp we had the lvl 42 PLD spawn the NM.

I used Spirits within! which hurt it real bad! then voked Yura then proceeded to unleash Spirits withing which took it down to about half Hp. About that time i was getting HAMMERed by it and was like "Holy crap, Its alot tougher than i remeber " We kept hiting it till i had 300% then Yura and the other PLD Cured me up to full heatlh. And after that I laid into it with another Charged Spirits within! which won the battle and sighed in relief

The PLD was happy and got his whetstone and then me and Yura Proceeded to hunt Stroper Chyme for 2 hours then we gave up no ring... ah well Good memories

Well did this last night with 62 NIN/WAR friend of mine. Went extremely easy. I was only hitting for 1-5 damage (40 PLD), so the nin was doing most of the hard work.

Polevik did Stoneaga II a total of 5 times in the fight. I ate three of them and gave myself cure3s. The 4th one dropped me below 100 HP. So nin told me to disengage and run into corner to rest MP and HP.

In the meantime the nin finished off Polevik. I left the fight at about 40% HP...she could have solo'd the whole fight easy, she prolly lost about 100 HP total.

Fight took about 7-8 minutes. His stoneskin is a pain, but bringing any DD 60+ with nin sub should have no problem duo'ing this with the PLD.

*BTW, shouts to Junin for helping me out ^^*

I was helping a pld do this quest last night. The plan was that he would trigger the mob, I would elemental seal + sleep II the elemental, then I would use Tornado on it (figuring Earth is weak against wind).

Well he resisted my ES + Sleep II, I had the tank provoke it, while I cast Tornado, for a whopping 200 pnts of damage. Water III did 140, Blizzard II did 92, ect. This mob is highly magically resistant. I drained it for 8 hp and Aspired for 4mp. (as a lv 55 blm).

This mob is not BLM friendly. But the lv 54 mnk in the pt was doing a fair amount of damage, a lot better than DD's should be able to do, to an elemental.

Helped someone with this last night, actly used blink when fighting him since he chewed through stoneskin fairly good. Kept him silinced, but everynow and then it looked at the pld, hit the pld once with a crit in the 600's. Looked painful lol. Battle took about 2-3min, found out for an elemetal his magic resistance was off the charts. Tried Aero II, hit him for 38 damage. BLizzard II hit for 47 damage. Best attacks to use are ws or job abiltys that have no elemental or melee propertys, Chi Blast, Spirtswithen, and Kights of the round.

I was running through Ordelles earlier.I was subbing WHT for self healing, going to hunt Stroped Chyme, and this ******* aggro me when i was casting.

It killed me. while i was eating dirt waiting for my friend to raise me i noticed he wasnt leaving.

by the time my friend got there *about 10 mins* this thing was still there, forcing me to HP.

it would have aggro my friend if he tried to revive me

We killed it in 10-15 seconds and all it did was cast rasp. So now i have my nice shiny Honor Sword and I'm happy :D. P.S. g/l to everyone who's doing this and i hope this helps. Cheers!

Funny story while fighting the NM elemental (Same post under "Honor Sword" and the "Sharpening the Sword" quest):

It was just me (PLD41/WAR20) and my friend (PLD60/WAR30) and we went to do the quest to get this sword for me. Anyway, when we got to the spawn point, we built up our TP and what not. Our plan was that I jump in with a single WS and then step out and help cure my friend. Then we both got hit with Stonega II and I got smacked upside the head and lost over half my HP.

I threw out my Cures whenever needed, and my friend ended up using his 2HR also. It was down to about 25% HP left. Then he said, "RUN!" and he dropped down the hole and lured it away from me. So I ran all the way back to the entrance of Ordelle's Cave. And then I stop to rest. My friend, somewhere on the map, says, "I think I lost it..."

I gain enough HP/MP back while resting and cast a CureIII on myself. Next thing I know, the **** elemental comes out from behind and hits me once. The funny thing is, it ran away after that one hit. So I told my friend and I'm like, "What a pu**y! LOL"

After that, he tells me to meet him back at the NM spawn point. On my way there, he says that it came back for him, so he starts fighting it again. I start curing him again as needed, and after all the weak hits he was giving out, he finally kills it, and I get the Whetstone.

It was pretty funny, cuz the **** thing went through the caves looking for the both of us, and we ended up killing it anyway. Haha!

And my reward: a nice new Honor Sword that I'll be using after I gain my 500 EXP to 42. ^^

I did this with just me (60 WAR, subbed NIN for this occasion) and a 57 WHM.

Easy fight, just get 300% TP, use Swords for Spirits Within, chip away till done. Its accuracy really sucked, hit me like 2 or 3 times.

I guess if you can't dodge the hits, it'd be a pain but it was fairly simple here.

Okay, so I'm walking along in Ordelle's, on my way to do the Zilart Mission stone monument just outside...I run past one of the holes, and a guy there who is all alone spawns this thing, and it kills him pretty much instantly. He homepoints, and now I'M stuck with it. It aggros me for some inexplainable reason (Its a fricken elemental! Since when do they aggro by anything other than magic?), and hits me for something like 100 damage with add effect:30. Keep in mind I'm a level 65 White Mage at the time! Of course, I freak out, I'm not about to lose 3k exp on the account of something stupid as this, so I run for a hole and it stops to cast Rasp on me (resisted), and I fall down...never see it again, heh. Oh well. *******. I'll have my revenge someday.

Fought this along with a few others for a friend's AF. PT:

51/22 RDM/BLM (me ... yeah, underleveled sub, I know ... but I quit RDM anyway)
53/26 WAR/NIN
40/20 PLD/WAR
42/20 RDM/BLM
50/25 DRK/WAR

I started off with Seal+Silence ... it stuck for all of 20 seconds, even with capped enfeebling. Other RDM did it too ... it resisted :p In short, since we coudln't keep it silenced and the WAR and I had no real gear to speak of, we all died cept WAR (nice lil 75 WHM helped him out a bit) So my pld buddy got his item ... but kicker is ... 75 whm casts raise III on us all, and starts resting before she raises me. littel 39 RDM has been watching us fight, and comes over and casts raise I on me ... I had been about 600 exp from equipping my AF boots. T_T Oh well ... I certainly didn't feel obligated to help him when he started spamming shouts for help finding something ...

so in short, for the love of god make sure you can keep this guy silenced - his spells are NASTY! Even when silenced though, I got lots of aggro, and he hit for about 200+. Be careful, eh? :p

If you didn't want the Raise I then why didn't you just say ----->NO<----- when it asked you if you would allow yourself to be raised. The fault lays with you.

I fought that thing just last night. 40PLD/20WAR(me), 50THF/25NIN, and a 66MNK/33WAR.

So simple, Chi Blast for about 1/3 its health, MNK and THF use massive WS, I stood there and missed the stupid thing every time...so I was healer >.<

It was really easy though.
just completed the mission

ok, did this quest with myselv (lvl40pld), a lvl 46pld, lvl49monk,lvl46SAM, and lvl55Monk.. yes i know, no healer.. it was a bit of a mess, we all got slaughtered except the 55monk who was able to get some cures from a passing rdm. The good news is i was able to get a raise after the 55monk finished him off and i was able to get the stone even after KO.

So it all worked out in the end.. had to pay a death to get this sword, but it was well worth it...

Do you think a PLD40, BLM40 and a RDM46 will be able to take him if we keep him silenced? I'm kinda eager to kill him... >:)

EDIT: We tried, and died hard. Just letting you people know so you don't try it. We all used food amnd the best gear for our level, still no chance for his Stone III's which hit me for like 500HP.

Yeah, it would be easy for a level 75, wouldn't it? If it's so easy, why didn't you solo it yourself? >_<

Killed this no problem.

Party consisted of 53 ninja (me), 42 paladin, and a 50 white mage. Keep it silenced and it's harmless.

Just did this last night with some of my LS. Party consisted off the following:
lvl 43 PLD (3 of us)
lvl 36 THF
lvl 37 RDM
lvl 43 RDM
lvl 50 WHM
lvl 43 BLM

Got Food and Buffs and Barstone all up and the fight wasn't bad. I was the main tank and never dropped below 450 hp. Just keep the NM on you and let your mages blast away and you'll be set. Also the PLD 2hr is great for this because the constant damage you take is from melee attacks from Polevik. Careful though, the Stonega II can pop up to 260's in damage. Otherwise good deal.

is this the beast that you need to kill for the quest given to you by a npc in the tavern in san d'oria for the cleaning of the caves.

no, that quest is called Eco-warrior and has a different NM you have to fight. if this was it and you were capped at level 20 it would literally be impossible.

DANGER. this thing may be lv45 but it still beat the snot out of a lv67 Samurai I know.
RE: ouch
# Feb 23 2004 at 11:09 AM Rating: Default
was the 67 SAM at 10 health when he started? i had a 67 RDM in full AF beat it to death without worry. of course, knowing it was an elemental, i brought someone who could silence it since elementals are nothing without their spells.

So to beat this guy, bring a high level with silence and you wont have a problem ^)^

RDM's and SAM's are much different, bro.

RDM's have Phalanx, Stoneskin, Blink, "Spike" spells... Basically enough to make them a decent tank.

They also have cureative spells, making them second to WHM's in healing.

Add to the mix some BLM spells, and you have a semi-nuker.

"But what about mp?! They'll run out!!"

Nadda. Refresh + Convert + Cure iV or higher = MP right back in the middle of a battle.

Sam's? Great damage dealers. TP comes back HELLA fast. But tanks? Heck no. Healers? Not a chance.

If you convert on this Thing you gonna find yourself licking the floor real fast.
#justmytwocents, Posted: Feb 28 2004 at 7:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your story sounds bogus. You're supposedly a RDM at lvl 67. You must have not gotten Silence at lvl 18 or any lvl after that, since you had to bring another high lvl to use Silence, a low lvl spell.

You just can't read. He said he HAD a 67 RDM.. not that he WAS a 67 RDM.

You just read his post wrong. His "someone" with silence is the 67 RDM he talks about.

It's an Elemental. :) They're usually stronger than their level reveals due to high defense.

Hello everyone im new to the furums but not the game. I plan on taking on this mission very soon, I was wondering what job combination you guys think is best for this mission besides the obvious healer and tank. Thank You
