Historical Information

The Peg Powler is a hag from English folklore with a green skin, long hair and sharp teeth who is said to inhabit the River Tees. She grabs the ankles of those who wander too close to the water's edge, especially naughty children, and pulls them under water and drowns them; in Mickleton In Teesdale this is referred to as the High Green ghost. It is highly similar to the Dutch folklore figure Haantje Pik. Grindylows and Jenny Greenteeth are similar water spirits.

After having spent dozens of hours down in the LoO camping Myst, Ose, and Peg; I was amazed to see Peg just roaming around. Made an absolute joke of him on my THF75. His accuracy seemed no better than the other mantas.

Now, over a year and a half after I could have a use for it, I have a Schwarz Axt. :\

Just for the sake of completion, Peg Powler does indeed drop a Pearl as well.

"Solo'd" her as 68 Dark/Sam...

I say "solo'd" because I technically did have the help of my level 55 NPC (soothing healer).
Also worth noting, I had linked a few gobs and burnt my two hour prior to fighting Peg...

It says on the net that it casts flood, but I didn't see it. I was spamming Guillotine like made and using ABS-TP and Meditate as often as I could, so maybe between that and my NPC casting silence, I/we prevented that.
I meditated until 120 TP before the fight and waited for meditate to have 1 min remaining... Opened with Drain II, used Guillotine, ABS-VIT, Bio II, ABS-TP, used Guillotine, Drain, used Meditate, used Guillotine... ect, ect, ect.
Goes without saying, but I used Third Eye as often as possible.

Anyways, it has a ton of HP.
I was down to about... 2 MP and about 300 HP and I'm sure my NPC zeroed its MP as well.

She be a tough critter...

Got the drop aswell.

No one has said that the axe hasn't dropped for them, I would guess it would be a 100% drop.

Fought this last night as a 72PLD/36RDM. Had my 62BLU/31NIN friend with me. Killed it while friend was trying to learn Maelstrom from Mantas in the area. Not too difficult. Stoneskin+Phalanx stayed up most the fight. When it did drop, his TP attacks hit for about 100-125 dmg. Normal hits were around 50 or so. He did have a TON of HP though. Got Rare/Ex Axe drop. Just have to level my WAR or DRK to use it now because it does look mean.

My BST duo partner and I just took it out at Lv. 56. We were in Onzozo when this thing popped in our way. We sent scorpions and mantas after it and didn't have any problems.

My buddy wants to level WAR, so he got the axe and we were free to get halfway to 57 before we stopped for the evening.

I talked some people in my LS into helping me get this thing. I wanted the axt for my WAR. We get there and it was unclaimed. I'm lvl 57 so I called my NPC to help prevent my death. The 4 of us realize this thing is going to own us so we zone it and start and allience with others in the area to help kill it.

It was a long fight but we managed to kill it with only one player getting killed. I was so happy to have got the Axt.

Thanks to all that help me out with this monster.

Just solo'd this fool as 75sam/37thf. <Too weak> <You can have this.> I was in full evasion set up, +34 evasion + 5 skill from AF boots, evasion capped for 75. Got the axe, 100% id say since most rare/ex nm weapon drops are. Started fight with 980 life was killing for treasure chest key when i seen him, ended fight with 534. He did land a nasty Maelstrom and a Cross-Attack that hit for over 150. But other than that he was a joke, cant wait to use axe on warrior. ^^

I would say anyone with enough evasion gear 70+ could solo this thing, does have a lot of HP took a little while to kill but his accuracy is horrible. If i would of brought /nin i probably wouldnt of gotten hit at all lol. Well good luck to ya's if u ever run across this guy.

On quetzalcoatl Me (rdm65/30drk vorpal blade ^^) and my newly found friend (Jag THF67/NIN33) were camping Mysticmaker Proflbix and got both pops and didnt get drop either time (i have bad luck and i totally messed up his 5/6 average lol) anyway he had to go 1hr after last spawn so we decided to skill up a bit 10min before he gtg we go to flying mantas we decide one more gob then he was gona log, so a manta aggros him i sleep and run away cure4 and the freaking thing wakes up so anyway we kill it and we sneak up and e runs away then i notice this NM out of the corner of my eye, not knowing any stats at all we decide to fight (well he decides and i just go along with it)it hit him maybe 3 times tops , we were lucky and he never used maelstrom we get like 4616 gil and 29-30xp and the "axt". The kill took about 10min after like 15min of adding up the dmg i got 10134 total dmg but the last hit was dancing edge and he barely had any hp left so i would say this guy has exactly 10k hp fight was easy as pie, easier than mantas, quite a bit longer though :P he gave me the axe since imma lvl war eventually im not sure the pop time but if its what someone said like 18hrs-24hrs i say "holy crap im lucky" and still if pop is over 4hrs i still say that XD good luck to yall gilsellers suck! (they were camping mold earrign and were like 0/7 or somethign if they were telling truth which doubt)

Decided to level polearm which I never bothered to do. Buddy Chaddo said we should fight in Onzozo. Found out that the Manta's and Gobbies in this room were giving me best skill so we stayed there for a little over an hour and this thing popped. I didn't bust out my Katana because i wanted to see if it was strogn or weak. Turned out to be a pretty weak NM so I just continued to skillup off it. He's np for a pair of 75's. A rdm or even a whm with good staff or club skill could solo it no problem. Has a ton of hp on it. I couldn't count how many Pentathrusts I used on it. Drops were 3k gil and the axe. Also gave 16 xp to 2 75's.

I was camping Profblix for the earring for my BLM, got a key, decided to make a few gil from treasure chest. Ended up aggroing this thing, ran to zone, and decided to fight it.
I got it to about 50% life before Spirit Taker fell behind, and I could no longer keep going. With one more person I could have done it np :\
At least the drop is useless for me..

We fought this guy while EXP'ing off of Toramas. I saw it pop on Wide Scan so I ran over, got claim with Shadowbind, put my Oils and Powders back up and ran back to camp.

We took him with: NIN61, RNG63(me), 63SMN, 62SAM, 62RDM, and 63DRG. The only thing we had any trouble with was his AoEs like Maelstorm. He uses pretty much the same moves as all Krakens and didnt cause anyone to get anywhere near under yellow. After quickly dropping it we got: 23 EXP, 1540 gil, A Water Crystal, and a Schwarz Axt. The Axe is Rare/EX WAR/DRK Lv. 56 Delay:(dont remember this one it was between 520-560) DMG:(somewhere between 80-89, dont remember this one either =/) Nightime:Acc+10 Light and Dark resistance +10. He is around 55-58 based on the EXP he gave us.

Soloed Peg as 75rdm/blm. No trouble with the fight. Fought right next to another Sea Monk and they didn't link. Nothing in that room aggroed me at all. Ended up killing place holders for about 18hrs in a 24hr time frame. Started killing at 6pm on day 1, woke up and continued and Peg popped a little after 7pm on day 2.
On a side note I saw 3 rdm take down Narishima after they dragged it from the spawn area. rdm/nin, rdm/war and rdm/whm. All anon but by gear and spells casted, rdm/nin and rdm/war were 75 and the rdm/whm was 60-65.

For a SMN72, DRK72, and PLD 70, they barely managed to kill it and an add. However, the DRK was subbing NIN and using an Axe and a Sword (He was around 120 in sword) and the SMN had about 700 MP at the start of the fight. I was able to melee it decently and only missed once or twice.

It has roughly ten thousand hit points, so take into consideration that that is a fairly hefty amount of damage to do while looking out for adds.

And I got the axe too! It was the only drop, not even a seashell came out of it.

Thought I'd share my experience with camping this NM... party setup was THF70/NIN35, RDM68/BLM34, WHM59/BLM29, WHM70/BLM35, and WAR56/NIN28. We camped G-7 for about 4 hours and cleared the room countless times, but it didn't pop the entire time. Does anyone know the spawn window for him?

"Solo'd" him today as a lvl 56 bst. (well, pets did all the work. he was doing 150 hit min to me if he got too close)

Just kept throwing T and even junk at him and running, recasting blink and some regen.. then swapped pets out.

took 1/2 hour. had my friend with me as thf, but he merely hit it once near the end to get TH2 in there a bit. dropped 4500 each, and the axe.. which.. i'll just end up dropping :)

he was in my lvling way, killed me when I wasn't paying attention and threw a manta at him by accident earlier that day.

Kicked this guys *** last night..
72 MNK, 67 DRK <me>, 62 THF and 62 RDM

Took about an hour to pop after clearing the room @G7 twice..fight was very easy, took 1:12.
I have a video of it but for some reason, all the codec packs I have aren't allowing it to play still, any suggestions would be great... used Fraps to record it. I'd say by the dmg I was doing and the MNK was doing/taking this guy is 67-69. Link to a picture of the axe is:

I was farming my 71/35 MNK/THF in onzozo when a buddy of mine (playing WHM/BST at the time) shoots me a tell that this NM is on wide scan. A little tricky since neither of us were using peak fighting job combos, but we still managed to beat it barely. Got the "axt" and shell. A LS buddy of mine likes G.Axes so he's gonna be freaked that I got this one. Maybe I'll throw some more levels on my WAR and give it a road test.

Fought this thing with my exp party.

He was about as tough as a Torama, so knowing the gap between NM's and regular monsters difficulties I'd say he was around level 61-62.

Has the nastiest AoE blind I think I've ever seen, it was still on my five hours later before I realized I was still blinded.

I killed this thing with a pt of 60-63:

we were on our way to go lvl in Labyrinth of Onzozo when our pld says "NM o_O" and we see it and we decided to give it a try. Evidently it aggroed our pld anyway <_< and we mutilated it. It hit the pld pretty hard, not to mention it linked with the mantas that surrounded it, but all in all it wasnt too difficult of a fight. We each got 1000 gil and it dropped Schwarz Axt, which our SAM took for his warrior, who was only a few lvls under the req. So a party of 60 can take this down with some effort.

@ level 69 THF/WHM running through to find a chest, I spot this thing and go what the **** I'll sneak attack it. Maybe one or two pixels of life came off. Oh **** #1. Then it hits me like 3 times in a row for 80-95 damage. Oh **** #2. I realize I forgot to re-buy my warp scroll. Oh **** #3. I flee and run as far as I can, when flee runs out I log out.

Hitting a 69 thief with +20 evasion like 4/5 times so I say this thing can hit you hard. Be careful.

While running through with my nice new shiny map, I ran into him. Passed him by, as I'm just a 60 RDM, and everything around him was DC.

Came back a bit later, and a 74 PLD was fighting him. Watched a bit, and cheered...then the PLD came to about 1/8 HP left...tried curing himself, and was interrupted. I threw 2 Cure IV's on him, and he invited me to join. I did, and Refreshed him right away, as he was down to about 100 MP.

From that point on, the fight was never out of hand, but it took a good 5 minutes (I didn't melee at all, thought if for some reason I needed to Convert, wanted to have HP up). Grabbed a couple of pictures of him too that I'll have to submit.

I've kill this NM twice solo (Once as a 56 bst, and once as a 57 bst), took about 10-15minutes each time. He dropped the axe both times (which I threw away because its rare/ex ><)and also received 6000gil, 140xp with pet still alive and a shall shell. Funny thing is the axe is spelled Schwarz "Axt". From how much xp I received, my guess is that he's level 60 or 61.

He was hitting my pets (using Mushussu and Flying Mantas) for anywhere from 90-160dmg. Hit me for around 100 or so also when my stoneskin/blink wore off.

Not really worth the time if you don't plan on using the Great Axe.
