Guivre in Kuftal Tunnel

Guivre's Spawn Location
Guivre's Spawn Location

    • After spawning, Guivre will freely roam from its spawn point to the area around the Sabotender Sediendos and back.

  • Respawns roughly 21-24 hours after its last ToD.

Guivre in Ruhotz Silvermines

  • Appears in the Ruhotz Silvermines as a result of being warped there by the Sandworm ability, Doomvoid.

  • The Guivre that appears in Ruhotz is a more powerful version of the one that appears in Kuftal Tunnel, and this battle is on a 60 minute timer, after which you will be warped out.

  • Has an auto-regen effect that cannot be dispelled.

  • Will "run" from the fight every time its hp drops by 10%.

    • While it is running away, it is immune to damage and enmity building effects, and resets the enmity of everyone in the battlefield.

Guivre Special Attacks

  • Radiant Breath: Frontal cone AoE Light based magic damage with an additional Slow and Silence effect.

  • Dread Shriek: AoE Paralysis effect.

  • Deadly Drive: Single target physical damage.

  • Fang Rush: Single target three hit physical attack.

  • Dispelling Wind: AoE Dispel effect.

  • Wind Wall: Self target Evasion boost. (Effect can be dispelled).

  • Tail Crush: Single target physical damage with an additional Poison effect.

Historical Information

The Guivre, in French legend, is a wingless dragon capable of expelling venomous miasma from its mouth that killed plants and infected people that inhaled its fumes with pestilence. It was said to have a tendency to keep treasures it would find and coil about them.

I'm wondering, 'cause there was this day I got owned by Guivre just getting to an EXP party. 5 times, I believe. He camped my body, I swear--each raiser got owned by him, as well as 1-shotting me.

Anyways, I had invisible on, and he still aggro'd.... My friend, Erikthecleric also had invisible on today, and he aggro'd Guivre too. Could he be true sight, do you think?

Me and 2 other people just got aggroed by Guivre as well. And we all had Invisible on us too.

I'm starting to think maybe SE ninja updated him to either aggro to sight and sound, or possibly have true sight at night like the ash dragon does with true sound at night.

This is the first time I have ever been aggroed while invisible. Something is different with his behavior.

Well, I was in a pretty daring mood this evening, thanks to a bloody hilarious death in Onzozo. Somebody in the linkshell suddenly goes "Omg, we just got pwned by Guivre" and sure enough they were suddenly in Whitegate again. Me and my friend think "Hey, we've died once, what's dying again?" and rush on over to Kuftal for a spot of 'Guivre Watching'.

We come across an LS member, dead, which was funny: suddenly Guivre runs past. Luckily we had invisible up: but then, foolishly, my friend goes "I'm gonna solo him", as SAM/NIN... lol.

SAM drops invis, missed Guivre, Guivre hits SAM for almost 70% of his health. SAM uses "Flat Blade" for 0 damage, at which point we were killing ourselves with laughter. Guivre takes another slice and the SAM was dead. I haven't had so much fun on this game in months. The thing that does it for me was the SAM's comment after the fight:

"I nearly had him."
Here's a screenshot of the momentus occasion, unfortunately with all the RMT camping Amemet owning our dragon =(

Solo'd this a couple weeks ago as RDM/NIN. Used the ever-boring but oh-so-powerful bind+DoT method.

Just get poison and bio up, bind, run away. When it gets loose you have to blink tank it until bind is up again as he resisted all my gravitys. Got a few nukes off with extra mp and convert up to speed the fight up.

It helps to have people clear the crabs in the room if an xp party isnt doing it already, as any agro will definatly be too much to handle. (Thanks silvaro)

Took a little under an hour, ****** some gilsellers off, and make a little gil from the skull. I haven't been able to try again as RMT kill it regularly and I don't want to camp it.

I duo'd this as a 75BRD/WHM. And a 75NIN/WAR.
It didn't spam much, I guess we were lucky?
The NIN stocked EVA gear and I gave him a March and Mambo.
Didn't get hit once.

We got a wind crystal. yay =)

I met a similar fate while in an xp party just now... tanking a Robber Crab and all of a sudden I go from 1048 HP to 0 in like 8 seconds. Just for the record, a 55PLD can take 3 shots from this guy if your flinching and mistype skills are capped.

While running through here to get to valley of sorrows our party accidently
aggored this big boy...We all ran back to zone into the desert (3 of us died doing this) When we came back in, we ran past the lizards and saw Guivre walking over the 2 RMT parties he killed going back to his spawn... were all laughing like **** at this point... so we raise those in our party who died, wait for weakness to wear and we continue on our way... only for the nin to be aggord by Ametet(sp?) and die again... That just wasnt our night for a party...

But i do still laugh when i think of the 12 dead RMT tarus and galka that Guivre ate. XD

Guivre - Attempt 1

Attempted to kill this NM with the following:

75RDM/NIN (Melee style. No nuking)

Going against the norm here! I was going to attempt to upfront tank Guivre using melee, with WHM supporting me.

Well, there isn't much to say about this one. Guivre is very very fast, double attacks very often and will hit for 200+ damage, and crit for nearly double that. Once Utsusemi is down, don't expect to get it back up anytime soon. Guivre is a beast of a hitter, and our terrible evasion means our melee downfall here. It's also quite difficult to enfeeble without merits and full mage gear. I chainspelled Utsusemi, and actually managed to melee it down to 95%. I felt special...ya...well, after chainspell Utsusemi, I was soon after eating sand ^_^

However, this is not the end of the attempts! I've tried to do this many times >.>, yes, i'm pretty daring..or pretty stupid.. My WHM friend is leveling BRD to 75, plus post-July 24th patch, RDM has tier II enfeebles. Slow II + Carnage Elegy may just allow a duo of 75 BRD and 75RDM/NIN tank (using melee!) to beat this mob. I'll post updates whenever I get around to trying this out. ^^

Beat Guivre with a skillup PT of six.

MNK/NIN (me)
WAR/NIN (no utsusemi: ni)

all 75 unless otherwise noted

I said "hey, let's go kill guivre"

First attempt we died because of several factors: pull was sloppy, so first WAR eats dirt right off the bat, I end up tanking and the 62 WHM aggros Robber Crabs trying to get out of the way, then the other WAR aggros some crabs too and we basically have a huge mess of people running around with crabs while I'm trying to tank Guivre. Wiped at 54% >.>

So, we reraise and get ready again.

This time we pull it up to the worm staircase so no crabs in the way. Double March and Haste on me and the other Ni WAR (third WAR was mostly DD because he couldn't tank with just ichi.) Elegy on Guivre. Went a lot better, chugged echo drops for Radiant Breaths which nearly killed us a couple times because of its high DMG. We were tanking in atk gear with -eva because we knew we wouldn't evade anyway. Flash here and there saved our butts, one of the most dangerous moments was a Deadly Shriek that paralyzed us.

After a pretty long fight and some Hundred Fists and Mighty Strikes around 25%, we took him out successfully the second try with no deaths. No drops though, only 2000 gil for each of us. :\

A guy in my LS wanted to kill Guivre so we're all like "YEAH!" Many of us have been pwn't by the dragon and we wanted revenge. We got a group of 70's together and engaged...we got it down to 1/3 health then it used this wing flapping move and dropped nin shadows and all of our buffs. I (being the only whm) not having nobles tunic, ran out of MP, and the fight degraded from there. Eventually we all wiped. We got raised and had another rdm and blm join us making 8 total. We tried again...and wiped again.

After that we gave up. Guivre is a beast- and not worth fighting for the price of the drop (skull is 600k on Diabolos server) >.<

From what I have heard, he has truesight on certain days, this was just told to me by one person tho.

Parts of my linkshell have gone through there and said he isn't truesight, that they've walked past him and in front of him and no aggro, but then a few people in my linkshell said that they got aggro by him even while invis.

So either I'm getting lied to by someone here, or he must have truesight at some time >.>

Friend told me that he only aggros to invis standing still. If you are moving with invis up he won't aggro. Very wide aggro range so remember to have it up early if you hear he's up.

So a couple friends and I were skilling in kuftal on crabs me (61 war/nin) my 75 war/nin buddy Aramahk, and a i think 70 something whm named Valcrist. suddenly Guirve comes up and wipes me out in 2-3 hits. and takes out our whm. Well after we all got raised we quick put together an Alliance of several other skill up pts to take his *** out.forgive me if i can't remember thier names.anyway things went smooth until he got to 70%, we had Aramahk sharing Hate with a really good PLD, but then he got hit by tail whip.after that ppl started dying. but we fought on with Aram tanking, I was only doing neglible dmg. at around 10% he was picking people off, over half the alliance was eating dirt, but still we fought. at 4% there were around 2 people still standing. I voked it to give time for war to cast shadows, I tanked for about a total of 30 seconds before i hit the ground. then the sam, Achilleon, 2hrd and delivered the killing blow. He and Arwene were the only two alive and not weakened, It was a very very close fight. good job to all who fought and took down Guirve on Bismarck today!

I guess you can't remember the names of the people that you allianced with. I was the samurai that killed Guivre. My screenshot shows that I delivered the "killing blow." Only myself and Arwene(rdm) were the only ones that didn't die. Everyone else was raised and only Valcrist's weakness had worn by that time.

I've read the debate back & forth on Guivre's "True Sight" and used to always insist that she did not have True Sight.

Well... last night KINDA proved me wrong.

EXP'ing my RDM, facing the melee, I freaked when a BLM's HP dropped to zero instantly. When I turned the camera angle, guess who had dropped by to say Hi!

I made it to zone alive (how, I don't know), came back and started raising the party. I had 2 raised when Guivre came around again. Everybody that was up had invis active. Suddenly, Guivre stopped in her tracks and one-shooted an invisible BLM. The invisble BLM happened to be standing directly in her path. A few seconds later, she just waltzed right by me and the other BLM without a glance.

About ten minutes later, it was down to just me & a BLM (both invisble) when Guivre came around the corner again. We didn't think much of it as our Invisible spells were holding just fine. Unfortunately, I was directly in the dragon's path. As soon as Guivre got to within a few steps of me, she stopped, the wings spread, and she one-shotted me.

Lesson learned: Invis up & stay the **** out of this wyvern's path and you should be fine.

Ok I have read some post about him and have fought him several times. Alot of this info on him is so-so. He agros sight... That's its. Not true sight and for those who say otherwise it's just not true. I want on my ventrilo server the other day when i was running threw jeuno to hear that 1 pt of 6 LS memembers were running to go fight some avatars. I heard them say this bay boy was up and they were gonna take him. Needless to say they brought him down to about 22% then they whipped. They didn't really care due to the fact they didn't plan nor buff up like they should have. My blm friend and I were then recruited for the fight. We swung on down to the tunnel with a rdm pal of mine. We got there buffed up and got ready. After the asskicken he layed down on my LS mate who was a paldin I told him I would take the tank job. Gameplan was that the 1st monk would dragon kick, 2nd asuran fists then finally sharkbite onto me for light and hate. Then I provoked hit spiritswithin and locked the hate. By this time my blm friend was blowing this thing up. Very simple fight from there on out.

Things to look out for: Dispelling wind; dispels nearly anything, aoe paralize, raident breath; slow and silence, some tailwhip kinda move, some flying attack and bite kinda move i believe that poisons the target. He will use those speical moves @ and around 20% life. And to those ppl who say they can solo. . . <cough> bullspit <cough>

Either it's conditional or they changed it a few updates ago.
I always had no problems running past it with invis up.
But last week while I was exping my thf in kuftal some party members died and they claimed to have invis up, so meh. odd stuff.

Definetely weird. Guivre was wreaking havok in Kuftal today. Wasted severeal people, most of which were invisible at the time. Either its a serious case of bad luck, or Guivre has selective true sight.

to the string of posts wondering how it aggroed through sneak and invis, it's an HNM, it has True Sight. True Sight > all.

Guivre never used to have True sight. If it does now, it's new. I've stood in front of it several times with tonko up and it did not aggro. Which means either his true sight is conditional, or he has been changed in one of the recent updates.

Well, I just saw him for the first time. I'm in FPV cuz of some lag trouble, (drg) suddenly i notice my hp dropped by about 350 points. one of my pt members says Guivre... This being my first time in Kuftal Tunnel, I was unaware of this demon in the deep. well, second his is for 556 (being taru at 855hp total) that was the end for me. Fortunately for my pt, the blm got escape on and I was the only one in my pt whom died, ironically there was no one willing to kill him.
Is it ironic that he went after the dragoon first? I think not. So, like MacArthur... "I Shall Return!"

Was in a pt when this guy pop. High levels everywhere trying to kill it. They all died, Guivre with almost no health left standing there. Our pt leader pulls it(for some reason)got a few hits in (54blm btw). I tried my highest dmg spell to kill it. At 78% casting turns around and one shots me kills the last member next. An other person there stuns it firaga2 and kills it. Came so close.

All I'm reading is how much of a monster he is, yet no one posts any strats on beating him. Sooo I have some general questions.

Does he have any AoE? Like dispelling wind which most wyverns I've fought do have?

Think a 75THF/NIN with capped merits and a WHM to haste can duo it? >_>

He will one hit, maybe if your lucky two hit you! He has a attack that a Directional AOE. Meaning I wouldnt want to be standing if front of this guy when he decides to Drop your tank.

For all you PLD's out there.. Use a Terra Staff. Dont pretend like your really goin to be doing DMG. to any HNM around this Lvl!

Watched a fight today. not sure what lvl robber crabs stop aggro, there was a 75 rdm that got attacked by a robber crab and almost died, not sure if it was aggro. but there was a 6 man pt fighting him today on Kujata server. nin/war mnk/nin thf/nin blm/whm whm/blm and a rdm/blm all 75. Ate through shadows and did triple attack a lot. Also has a move, i forget the name, but it's a powerful paralyzega. it hit the party, and took them three-5 minutes to get rid of the paralyze from all the members, due to constant failures.

It was kinda funny when the thf didn't sata right, and missed and took all the hate. he almost died. Melee damage was doing between 20 and 60 a hit. Only thing that ever did considerable damage was Blizzard IV. I'd say from what i saw, he has about 10-15k hp. but thats a very rough estimate and probably wrong.

I would doubt that a THF/NIN could duo it, but crazier things have been done. like the 1 nin kite, 63 mage/bard hnm ls. makes for an interesting showcase

I were here today (actually i am right now writing this post that hopefully noone will really read) and i met Guivre. Well anyways my party was screaming "oh noes there's Guivre" and i think it was the thf who got aggro so i was wth is that , and so i pounded stun on him, and told the others to run off (Playing hero) so after stun i tried to cast Blizzaga II on him, but i think i got as far as 65% Before he suddenly came towards me and hit me for 510 points of damage... Luckily no one in my pt died tho, but i think the gilsellers got pretty mad (No idea why) cuz it started to run after the others, so after 5 mins i've gotten raise and some of the others in my pt also got raised and then suddenly a dude came with like 10 crabs on our party while we we're fighting one, and he warped (biotch) so we all died.... (Fun)
Lasted a whole 2 shots

Partying in Kuftal today, a Thief or Ranger fless straight past us yelling "Incoming!" We saw a few lizards after her, and did'nt think much about it. And then 8 robber crabs appeared. And then a Haunt. And finally, freaking Guivre. Two shots for 564 each and I was gone.

Did'nt think it's level was this high though, or that it was a NM. Could have sword that there were normal Wyverns around this area.
Surprised he was'nt able to hit for more, or faster. Was'nt a Double attack or anything, as I was near the zone by time the second attack kicked in. No protect, and I could'nt use Defender.

Seriously people, just accept the freaking death, and dont zone something like this.
This used to be pretty fun.

Was skilling up in Kuftal with my nin friend, and he runs off to get a crab. Next thing I know, his HP hit 0. I didn't know what was going on, the he said, " Omg, guivre hit me, so I Mijin Gakured. RUUUUN!" So I start to walk to where he was, casting sneak/ invis. All of a sudden, i see Guivre rampaging out of the hallway. I ran back to the big room where Amemet spawns, and did a /shout "Everyone, Guivre is on the loose, get the **** out XD." well, sure enough, no one listens. Guivre comes into the Amemet room, and feasts on the campers. Three people down, and I'm scared as ****. He passed me, and ran off. I warp out, my friend hp's, and we're done with skill ups for the day ;-;

I have seen this ******* many times. First time I saw him, I was a level 25 rdm just running around exploring new places, considering no one had ever told me about the lands beyong Jeuno and Khazam. The only reason I came to this tunnel was I had heard rumors you could get to Rabao through it. I tried the other tunnel first, but got eaten by Bune, so decided to come this way. As I am running through, with no map, and lost as ****, I saw his outline. Earth weather, I beleive, so that was all I saw. I slowly backed away until I thought I was safe. After my previous encounter with Bune, I knew these things found me to be the exact consistency of a twinky. The ground starts shaking and I angle the camera so I can look behind me, as I was like "wtf...oh no...." You know that overwhelming sense of dread you get when you realize that the mob you thought was youre standard farming mob was that one NM that could eat you without chewing? Yeah, kinda like that, so I haul *** in some direction, not remembering my way back, and no map. I didn't get very far before I drop and skid on the ground. "Guivre scores a critical hit! Lucavi takes 588 points of damage. Lucavi is defeated by Guivre." The second time I saw him I was lecel 30 rdm, trying once more to get to the elusive hovel of Rabao, and there was a whole assload of people dead, and what looked to be about 16 or so high levels smacking it, so I made it safely to the Altepa Desert, where I was promptly mauled by several Antica. The last time I saw it, I was in a party destined for Cape Terrigan, and we see someone running by. Then out whm bites the dust, followed by out pld, and out blm. the only reason I escaped death and zoned was that it ate the thf when he stopped to use flee. One day, I will be 75, and I will land the killing blow.
Perish now in darkest obscurity.

We sneak and stuff and then after walking like 5 mins one of our pt members died!! we didn't knew wtf happend to him cause he passed away very fast!! then i saw HIM!! i started to run like crazy but just with one hit my sneak wore off and every crab out there started to hitting me!!! i died ; ;!!

After i was death waiting for my whm to raise me i saw many ppl being killed by HIM!! was like a horror movie with no ending!! even 4 ppl 75 died trying to escape from this NM!!! the worst thing is HE didn't stayed in one place!! HE is always moving in a patrol route killing everybody that wants to pass or lvl there!!

I still dreaming with HIM!! was a horrible experience ; ;

So I got a PT and head out to Kuftal tunnel, not knowing who this Dragon was or what he was capable of. We started and did awesome Chains, and no Down time, until a few high lvls died close to us. At first I thought it was a train of crabs until I see this NM. We run and everyone just Invisible and Tonko:Ichi. The Dragon was right infront of me, I didn't move a muscle thinking it was Sneak too. Even thou you get aggro if you're not walking or running. I yelled the only way possible on a chat, I put "SNEAK?! YES NO MAYBE?!", everyone tells me no just sight. The next thing I see is this Dragon putting himself into a weird position*attack positon* and hits me for 572. I started running...I don't know what good would that do cause I only have 104 HP left and even a Snipper can kill me now. So I die...and he goes not aggroing no one else... I stand there asking my self WTF.... and see him going to where he usually runs..I ask my PT and they say they don't know what happen. Well he also got our SAM. T.T Many people, didn't know he was around until it was too late, and died infront of us. It was Entertaining for a while, but I feel bad for everyone how lots alot of Expirience just because they had to HP or they got r1 from our WHM. So my question is that "If this mosnter aggro on sight, why did it aggro me while Invisible?",Please keep in mind that I was right infront of him.

I think he smells fear. I got owned by him a few times with sneak/invis on and thought it was true sight as well. then one day he came trotting along and walks up to me literally looks me in the face (btw neither sneak nor Invis were on and level was only 59 at the time) does a charge like most mobs do during there routine (which I thought was my death) and walks right past me, Stops turns around and walk past me again, sees someone and has a snack then moves on. I did not cast or use items and thought perhaps if he aggroed magic i would pull his attention. After he left I tractored in his kill raised, and snuck my way throught the rest of the tunnel without seeing him again. So IMO he smells your fear. Perhaps those who do not hide run sneak cast invis ect are not appealing to him. Who knows /shrug
