Of all the times I've helped on the PLD quest, I've never seen this one. It's always been the Mush. So this time I see it and I'm all, ooo, NM! So I start pummeling it. The lvl 30 war with me tried to help but he couldn't get a hit off on it. Got stoneskin and blaze spikes up, hit it with a burn and spammed it with fire and rock crusher until it was dead. I'm a lvl 66 white mage.. so weak..

No drop, not that it matters since it drops junk.

SE made this thing more pathetic than the Kraken... i just blew the **** out of it w/ various spells... tho i was hoping it was a drop NM, but i realized relatively fast that it was just there to guard the well... pathetically easy to kill... i'm gonna go back later and test if it can be Sleep IIed to save a little time on the journey through Davoi for when i take friends to get Pld Key Item

>.> ok its blocking the well to get key item for pld it doesnt drop, im sure a few ppl realized that its an nm for a advanced job quest and will not drop a **** thing......., much like the kraken for the beastmaster flag quest ... its not a special nm or anythin.....

Seems like this mob was placed there for the sole purpose to guard the well. Luckily it is super easy to beat. <66whm> Didn't touch my HP once. If you're not high enough to beat it just get your item and go when it's facing the other way.
wtf is the drop?

I just pwn'ed this thing helpin some random person get their PLD. It didn't touch me once... I had to rip off a couple rampages, but that's just a factor when a melee is fighting a jelly... No Drop. (whatever it may be...) I honestly doubt that slime oil is the "Big Drop" of this NM, but who knows...

So heres the story, me (60drk/thf) and my buddy dro (60 sam/war) were runnin around davoi doin LB3. We were lost on one pond, so we checked this area. This is the DISUSED WELL! If I remember correctly NOT the WELL used for pld. That is in fact Davoi Mush. So we see it, and say ***** it NM kill!!! Easy enough, neither of us were ever red...maybe yellow...but disappeared with drain. So yea pain in the ****, but not a gaurd and no drop...one of those HAHA SE screws us again!

don't know if this has been said before, but the whole point of this NM is to torture noobs goin for the PLD flag quest. i got tortured myself. had a 58 pld friend helping me, but he died by an aggro from 7 or 8 orcs, then switched to whm. he nearly got killed even at lvl 68. He finally landed stoneskin and we tele'd to Holla as soon as i got the item from the well. Final note, hes a ******* >.>

Got me 36exp, but I had a partner for it. He was dead and lvl 30 though, so I consider it solod. :3

I went to get my Paladin with a 47 Paladin friend, we had no problems getting there. Once we got there a Slime popped, we killed it, and I got the Knight's Soul. We stopped for a bit because we had to get a Warp II. (I was too weak for a stupid orc to aggro me) We waited for about 10 minites when this guy popped, we fought for a good 5 minites before we both got killed, we only managed to do 1/5 of the bar =(

I just owned this last night as a 55 RDM/BLM. It wasnt to tough of a fight at all. Funny thing was I was in my mining gear cause my friend asked me to help him get his PLD flag while I was in gusgen. Just kept stoneskin and phalanx up and wacked away. I did need to do one emergency convert though but hey.....if your not sweaten a little wheres the fun. Anyways....he didnt drop anything and from what I can tell after reading this thread he is only meant to terrorize poor people doing the PLD flag quest. Have fun beating him senceless.

when me and a friend doing pld flag quest, it was very late my time, so i just wanted to get this thing over with and go to sleep, we took the short route of going thru the river and straight for the well, my mind was half asleep so i just engaged the slime b4 any more actions are made, i hit it for ok dmg but im only at 1/2 HP, friend cures me a few times till he runs out of mp, he wakes up at HP and raised me by well, we learned our lesson,got the soul, left the slimy alone and went on our way.

bad news was soon after i misled him into orc compound where everything said VT to me, it was a way out, but we both woke up at HP when they tracked us.

Yeah, it does guard that well.. It's just not always there. I was hanging around Purpleflash spawn point (RDM AF1 NM), just to try a solo for something to do...

He doesn't pop and doesn't pop so I run down to the well and find this guy. I got it down to about 15% health before it became a "him-or-me" fight, and I knew he doesn't drop anything worthwhile so I gravity/slept him and got outta dodge.

It's *possible* that this mob and Purpleflash spawn in each other's places. I have never seen the 2 both up at the same time, and that being said, 1 of the 2 is always up.

Blubbery and Purpleflash are not connected. A friend and I had just taken out Poisonhand (no drop) and they left. I decided to take a tour of Davoi (with invisible...don't leave home without it). I came across Blubbery and told my friend about it and he said it didn't drop anything so I left it be. Walked around the corner and there was Purpleflash, whom my friend informed me was for RDM AF1.

So, the 2 can be out at the same time.

I can confirm it as well. It would seem that the Davoi Mush is the placeholder. It's an interesting theory that Blubbery Bulge may be tied to Purpleflash.
We came to the well, just the mush was there, killed it, and the to-be-Pld hadn't gone to the towers yet. -_- So on the way out we grab the thyme moss for "To Cure a Cough" and run into Purpleflash on the way. Not knowing what he's for (we're a war42 and whm53) we engage it. The battle is going well until we get three links. Then I get the tell, "You doing Rdm AF?", so I ally with their party and let them have the key, after they jump in and save us from near certain doom. ^_^ We go get the moss, and head back to Sandy. When we come back later, the Bulge is at the well. I don't notice it's an NM, just engage it like the mush. Almost owned again without the help of an anon whm/bst or bst/whm named Mary (thanks again Mary!) who pulls us through the battle. No drop. -_- On the way out we took a look for Purpleflash (I'm vengeful and wanted another shot at him, avoiding links this time) but he wasn't around, so that could support the idea that they're not up at the same time; I didn't stick around to see if he'd show up.

But yes, the Bulge is at the well, sometimes... which is how NMs tend to work.

I can confirm it spawns at the well. We ran into it with a few PLD wannabees. Fluid Spread hit me (41 RDM) for 333, so this is no piece of cake...

This mob doesn't guard the well to do the PLD Flag quest, that mob is called Davoi Mush. Looks identical, but I've done the PLD flag quest several times for people (and myself), don't be confused.

Found this thing last night by accident. Party was seeking Purpleflash Brakdok, and we came across B.B. While debating wether or not we could handle it, it aggro'd our MNK. Party was:
LVL40 RDM <me>

We actually killed it quite easily--nobody was even close to dying with Regen and Refresh and 2 RDM's. It hits hard, but our magic was good enough to kill it. Didn't drop anything. It was still pretty exciting to fight a 'higher level' NM.

I solo'd the PLD flag quest a lvl 30WAR/15MNK. I used Prism Powders and Silent Oil, made my way to the well and used Defender to shake off the powder and oil. I got the Key Item and this thing started in on me a second later. I had 629hp and I triggered my Scroll of (not so) Instant Warp. When I arrived in San d' Oria I had 63hp left. I guess it would have been a good idea to eat a fish Mithkabob.

You can turn off self-inflicted effects such as meals and protect/shell, berserk and defender by pressing the 'plus' key on the number bad until there is a red box around an effect in your buffs/debuffs window.

Use left and right arrow keys, select the buff you wish to remove, and press enter.

This works with Sneak and Invisible, but you should have only taken off Invisible in this situation. You can still interact with NPCs if you have Sneak.

Just thought I'd share this with you. It is incredibly useful if you're berserking and end up moving into a tanking position. You can cancel Berserk and trigger Defender very quickly.

But it has other uses as well.

I'm not sure about the PS2 controls, you'd have to consult your manual or experienced PS2 players.

From 629 to 63, it's probably a good thing he did use Defender. ^_^ Although, since it only aggros by sound (or so the info says) losing just the invis perhaps would have been safer.

okay peeps.. this "nm" isnt really lvl 45.. cause ive now helped THREE of my ls peeps, and always had a whm there, and in general, if an nm is the same lvl as you, you're as good as dead in about 3 hits... but this thing is a wuss... didnt ever even get me to half hp... sure it help to have a whm, but seriously, its no lvl 45-47... its a big wuss if it is... if any of you are on fenrir, and want some help, send me a tell... im on... a LOT.. >.< anyway... good luck to all of youZ!

I'd assume its a NM simply because it guards a very important point, namely the key item for the Paladin Quest. That may in fact be its only point.

because the game makers were cheap, basicly i've come to figure that there are some NM's prolly higher lvl, that drop good stuff, and some that drop crap.... but i think NM's just = that its a mob with a unique name.. doesnt always mean it will drop something uber *shrug* but thats just my 2 gil's worth
Just a thought

Wht does this NM drop, if it only drops the slime and a crystal as is stated by the picutre, than how can u call it an NM? neway, just wanted to throw in some logic lol

what's the point of fighting this thing?
it spawns next to the well from the Paladin quest, and it spawns quite often. i was lv33 and it did an area attack that took away 230hp
