It would often ambush any treasure seekers that stumbled upon its precious items by overturning the rocks it would hide them under.

We just finished a Farming Session (reason we had as many people as we did), which started out for 2 Skulls and a shot at Vouivre for my DRG.
When we got up there Voiuvre was not up(which sucked, since he is normally wandering around), so we started pulling Wyverns and figured we would work on getting skulls while waiting.
Killed 37 and got 6 Skulls.
Total Time about 3 Hours.
Voiuvre never poped.

Older posts stated that he hits too hard to be PLD tankable, but at least after the last round of paladin updates this is no longer the case. We went and took him down last Friday to get the polearm for our static's drg who had just dinged 68. Our setup was:
75 pld/war
75 drg/whm
75 brd/whm
75 rng/nin
75 rdm/whm
70 blm/whm

We took him down in around 10-15 minutes. I can't remember exactly how long, but as ranger I recall I was only able to get off two barrages, so it should be in that 10-15 minute range. Pld was easily able to tank the mob, we had one nasty moment where his HP dipped really low, and really only one other time that he even got into orange HP. We never had any issues with anyone's magic running low, and aside from a few weaponskills where I went trigger happy with my slug shots, we didn't really have issues with anyone else ever pulling hate. All in all a very fun fight.

We were out farming the skull for a level 60 bard friend of mine, we went out as a whole party however the only ones to make it to the camp were me (74thf/nin) and a level 75rdm/ninja. The bard waited at zone and everyone else got lost :)

but we could have easily killed him with just the 3

We descided to try killing the wyverns and found that it was no issue. We got the skull after 5 kills. We saw the NM and thought what the heck, both put reraise II up and were contemplating pulling him. A friendly 75blm/rdm wandered into camp and he joined up. With just 3 we pulled and had an awsome time :) after about 30 minutes we escaped out. The regen was way to fast and with no real voker the blm had to hold back ALOT. No one even hit yellow HP.

No real moral to this story, but it was fun all the same :)

A 75rdm/nin, are you kidding me? I think you mean a UBER 75rdm/nin! lol

Kyrrala isn't kidding tho, SATA ws did some dmg but, sadly it's regen was too fast. If the blm could of let loose we would of had an easy win, but sadly I'm just a lowly rdm/nin tank with no voke.

Oh, and everyone beware Kyrrala TP gain is Impossible to Gauge!

Took this guy down about 10 minutes ago with:


All level 75. Only one MNK died, fight lasted a while but wasn't too bad. Then again we have a good ninja tanking him ^^. Somepage says this guy needs 18 ppl 70+ incase anyone cares, I found that rather amusing myself. Oh, and one last thing, Light SC did wonders on him. Asuran Fists > Raging Fists > Shark bite did about 2-3k in damage both times we used it. GL if anyone is trying this; with a good tank he ain't so bad.

This NM was up when we went to get a skull for someone. It was a Lv75NIN/WAR, Lv75MNK/NIN, Lv68RDM, Lv60-something SMN, a BRD that was /anon and me (70BST/WHM).

We decided we'd clear the Wyverns out and then fight him. I charmed and 2hr'd a VT Ash Lizard. The NIN and the Ash Lizard were the only ones that fought it 100% of the time. The MNK would build his TP and disengage for multiple boosts and then jump in and close the SC. I let the my Pet build 300TP before unleashing... *drumroll* Secretion, lol. It never used an offensive attack once. ;;

Once we got it to 25% HP or so, the SMN 2hr'd and used Fenrir. It used a lot of TP moves, but since only the NIN, MNK and Lizard were fighting it, we did didn't give it as much TP as we could have. I wouldn't do enough damage to it to make up for the TP it would gain, so I was a back-up healer/status-remover. The RDM Dispeled whenever it EVA boosted, debuffed it and kept Protect on the NIN whenever it would use Dispelga. The NINs HP hit yellow twice once and orange once which was quickly met with my Cure3's and Cure4. Other than that, she didn't get hit much at all.

I kept watching my 2hr timer and overall the fight lasted 29minutes. I had less than one minute before my Pet turned on me from my 2hr. We got everything this guy drops I think: skin, wing, scales, 3 or 4 Wind Crystals and the Gae Bolg.

Overall it was a very fun fight. We didn't know if we could actually take him or not, but we took him down with no problems whatsoever. IOt was a long fight, but not once did we ever feel like things might go bad. If anyone reading this ever plans on fighting him, make sure the people that do not hit for much stay out of the fight if you have a NIN tank or it's TP moves will make short work of them. Good luck.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that a NIN and RDM could probably duo this thing. It would be a very, very, VERY long fight, but it could likely be done and it would probably be the easiest way. Dispel from the RDM helps tremendously. And with the NIN being the only one fighting, it wouldn't gain TP so fast and that's the key to making this a very easy fight. Not short, but easy.

Hey Clim, it's Kao ^^. Loads of fun last night! The SMN was 66 and the BRD was 67.

I've been out there with a 75 WHM and the same BRD. We took him down to around 90%, but gave up after awhile cuz it'd take forever to get his HP down. If I load up on accuracy gear, I'd bet I'd be able to hit him consistently enough to counter his strong regen. When my misses stacked up, we'd be at at standstill or he'd regen a fair amount of HP. Could be done I think with a RDM NIN duo, but would indeed take a very very very very long time...

Hey Kao. You did a great job tanking him last night. I had no idea of the levels of Coop and Lon. =/

Wouldn't Bio2 take care of his HP Regen enough to where the NIN would do enough damage over his natural HP Regen? That's more of what I was thinking whe I say a NIN and RDM duoing him. I don't think Dia2 would tick for enough to be as effective as Bio2, though I could be wrong. I think you only got hit 3 or 4 times during that fight total, so I've no doubt you and a RDM could duo it (RDM/BST 4tw!). Sure, it would take a very long time to duo him, but that's where the fun is! Took me over 2hrs to take down the San Mission 6-1 NM Cactaur and I can honestly say it's the most fun I've had in the game so far... well, our Tyrannic Tunnock excursion was quite entertaining as well, lol.

like so many other stories, we started as a skullfarming party for crown. It was:

73whm (Moi)

we were able to get him down to about 10% no problem whatsoever..and then...

when he gets down to about 10-15% he starts SPAMMING dispelling wind, which is a huge pain in the ***. Our two mnks actually stole hate from him so much that invincible wouldnt distract him. after the first mnk died and the blm died it was escape time.

between paralyzega, dispelga and his high attack in general id recommend either using a ninja tank or bringing more than 6 people. the lance drop sucks anyway. we actually just fought it for the sake of fighting him.

Well... I was in Ifrits a.k.a. **** last night helping out with Opo-opo killing Huricane Wyv. we see em pop setup was...75+28 merits, 75DRK+11merits (me), 75DRG, 72 BRD, 75 SMN. No deaths, I was parsing the fights so now I knkow he has around 43K HP but we did it with 5 got the Gae Bolg. He really is a ***** IMO, he was hitting me for like 180 on normal attacks.

I'm a galka so I wasn't holding back much, the NIN has something like 293 EVA skill so he was str8 Enmity. got down to 100 HP twice I<3stun He wasn't hard to kill, just like all HNM gotta get that HP outta the way. Long story short...if you have a pty of 5 or 6 75's or so and you know the ppl are HQ players take em on.

This guy is a wuss.

I never bothered fighting him until just a few hours ago. I always preferred my Colossal Lance over Gae Bolg, and still do.

Beat this guy with 2x 75WHM, 75RDM, 75PLD, 75BLM, 75SMN, 75DRG(me), 65WAR, 64MNK, 64SAM, 60DRG.

The PLD tanked it solo. No Utsusemi, no back up tank, never even hit orange HP.

The SMN was doing Predator Claws, MNK was charging up Chi Blast, I was mostly using Leg Sweep for Stun, BLM moderately nuking, WHMs taking turn on healing, BLM kept Bio II on him to counter Regen, the SAM and WAR were whiffing like crazy, as well as the DRG who was there.

People make this guy out to be bigger than he is. He was a joke, and I am a little dissappointed, I was hoping for a good fight.

Rykielz your party must have been really weak or something. My took this lizard down with a party of 6 and he was easy too because never once where we even close to losing.

I dunno if SE upgraded this thing or what. But I brought 15 people at one point to fight this thing and it was way harder then any of you make this out to be. I had 1 NIN, 2 WHM, 2 BLM, 1 DRG, 1 RNG, 1 DRK, 1 SAM, 2 RDM, 1 BRD, 1 BST, 1 THF, and 1 PLD. Now we got it to 1/3 hp but the Auot-regen III is a *****. It stayed at 1/3 hp for an hour and the fight was a stale mate then it got a fang rush that criticaled and killed our NIN. PLD quickly took hate and we got the NIN up. Problem was the NIN couldn't get hate back even with the THF SATAing the light SC on him and him constantly voking. Well the wyvern did a double attack into a fang rush and the PLD died so after that it immediately went after the mages and it went downwards from there, mages died and we were slowly picked off one by one until we wiped completely. We pulled it into the safe area so we wouldn't get any adds which we didn't. If a NIN tanks this he needs silena and paralyna a lot whenever Vouivre does an AoE. I dunno what happened, but this is by far not an easy fight and it hits for 400+ on me as a DRG and that's without a critical. Also doesn't have true sight so you can invis/sneak past it. GL to whoever fights this, not an easy fight anymore SE must've upgraded it.

I'm not positive, but it could have had much higher regen depending on the day you fought it. For instance, Kirin on Earthsday has a much higher regen then on any other day. That could've been the case here.

Me, 75NIN, a 75 WHM, and a 63 BRD were hunting for skulls when we saw this guy. We claimed him, and fought him for 30 minutes and got him down to 50% life, when 2 RNG friends and a WHM showed up to help us kill him. They sped up the fight, but we could have easily killed him with just the 3. He only landed a few regular hits on me, even with triple attack. This NM is very easy.

What you need to kill this Wyvren.

NIN, RDM, WHM, BLM, BRD, DRG. thats it.
NIN tanks facing away from mages. RDM casts Poison + Bio BLM nukes MILDLY, BRD uses the slow song on Vouivre and Evasion song on NIN, DRG uses Ancient Circle every 10 mins. however.
This is a risky pt but u can do it, he regens hp quickly so with this set up fight could last you 2 hours leaving u very vaunerable to bomb aggro. i would very much so recomend you taking a BST that can charm a lizard to fight and lure the bombs away. but a better party for all of this would be.

this pt would be for a simple "hey lets go kill Vouivre in 3 min pt."
NIN tanks facing away from mages. BLM's Nuke. RDM enfeebles MUST KEEP SILENCE on vouivre, 1st BRD uses MP song on mages and Evasion songs on NIN, WHM heals and try keeping a flash on it once in a while, 2nd brd in 2nd party uses Attack +songs or acc i prefer attack RNG's be RNG's and make new holes in places, THF SATA their ws and keep hate on tank. DRG wheeling Thrust is best and Ancient Circle works great here *equip drachen brais* SMN's summon fenrir and attack with him Wyvrens weak vs darkness so vouivre will be doing about 1,000++ dmg on him.

Best place to fight vouivre would be infront of where the raptor is for mages and near the bottom for the melee.

Uses Radiant Breath, Silences + does massive dmg some times to tank and anyone infront of him, Dispeling Wind removes 1 buff, Ex: Protect IV
Loud Shriek or sumthing, Paralyzaga, Deadly Dive Physical melee attack does some dmg on 1 person.

keep Poison and Bio on him, to counter his Regen effect. he has alot of hp.

This is the tactic for the win. However you can do it with less then this. getting to his camp is ez as well.

Lance is 100% drop

3-4 hour lotto pop.

This is one lazy NM. We were getting a wyvern skull for a guy in my LS and he was up. A friend of mine was already there getting a wyvern skull and told me Vouivre doesn't do anything except sit there. Knowing how all other wyverns in the game are I thought he was joking. Then he started to run circles around it. I was amazed. Then he pulled a Hurricane Wyvern and brought it through Vouivre and he didn't link. This is one lazy NM.

This guy sure is a *****. We went with 9 ppl. DRG, PLD, RDMx2, BLM, WHM, RNG, DRK, WAR. For about 30 minutes we camp some hurricane wyverns for the mages skulls. Everythings going fine and then Vouivre spawns. We heal to full and pull his ugly ***. Battle starts slow and I start to get a little panicky but no worries, pt assured me we were fine. Took about 20 minutes to get him to 50% HP. Dispelling wind sucked, dont waste your time trying to recast protect and shell etc. All i had the whole time was food and signet. Ok, so @ 50% he started triple attacking a bit more than before, and we were gettin a lil tired. I called in some backup. 4 ppl, a BLM, a NIN, another BLM, and a RDM. He drops from 50% to about 20% is a pretty short time, and I'm feeling pretty confident. But it takes about another 15 mintues to kill him. Dunno if Regen gets higher for him, latent effect, but he was harder to kill @ the end no doubt. All were 70+ xcept for the whm ( 66 ) and me, the drg ( 68 ).
Total time was ~35-40 minutes. People say only NIN can tank him, its not true. If its a good high lv PLD wtith an earth staff, Vouivre hits like a little girl. NIN does help, but not necessacry. If he aggros ur mages have everyone go nuts for hate, beacuse he will prolly tripple attack and kill them within seconds. Long fight, but tons of fun and its worth the effort to have this uberz lance.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but i think this guy has regen? Tryed taking this with alliance of 10, but most of the people were 60-65, so naturally didnt hit much, even with 2x madrigal. even after landing about 2k damage, still seemed to be at full so i think it regened lol.

LS Event

Last fryday we set an LS event to get our DRG's their spears, we also get like 10 wyverns skulls for the opo-opo crown quest and a few Bomb Queen ash while we were there. We went with 18 people, 12 around 70+ and the rest were around 60, we had two tanks a PLD75 and myself PLD71. This guy isn't very hard, it hits like a normal exp mob at 70 but it has a lot of hp though. It has a couple of really annoying attacks, like Dispeling Wind that will dispel everyone, and an AoE breath that causes paralyzega, this paralyze has a huuuuge range and can be quite dangerous because if it hits the mages the tanks can be without cures for a while. I sugest to pull him to the zone around G-8 since there you won't have links.
The Gae'Bolg seems to drop 100% of the time, we got 2 in two fights. The respawn timer of Vouivre was exactly 3 hours in our case.

This NM really isn't hard at all. Only problem was getting away from bombs =\ If you get a wyvern link it isn't bad but when a bomb pops in middle of fight and self-destructs 2 whacks later.....wow.. so yeah np freddyd see you around Garuda!

well i dont know about you guys, but when i went in futile to mine some adaman ore i had sneak and invis up and i walked right infront of both Vouivre and Ash Dragon, neither aggroed me, i guess i just got lucky i got some nice screenies and felt really satisfied despite the fact that i didn't get any ore :P

Well, i tried this guy with not 12, like so many ppl recommend, but 7 ppl.
Basically they pulled him to a spot where only 1 raptor spawned, and well only 2 times did i ever see yellow. So you really dont need 12 ppl, you just cant have Bomb aggros or Wvern links (yes they had to fight it again cause they got 2 bomb aggros and a wyvern link, thats when they chaged camps). Anywho thanks to the PhoniexDown LS, and Kotocho for convincing them to help me get it. Im loving it so far. Just owned mission 7-1 and 7-2 with it ^^

Alliance consisted of 12 people. 2 whm, 2 rdm, 2 rng, 2 nin, 1 pld, 1 blm, 1 sam, and me as drg. Most of the people were 70+.

Nins shared main tanking duties, both of them were 75. One Ranger got hate and died about 1/3 into the fight (sorry ; ;) but otherwise wasn't that hard.

At 68 I had a pretty hard time hitting it, but luckily subbed thf so I could SATA wheeling thrust, did around 500 dmg whenever I managed to get the tp to pull it off.

Loving my lance so far <3

Wow, he was one tough cookie. I just killed him with my LS and got the drop. A hint: just sleep bombs if you have a bard. Half the alliance died from a Self-Destruct so Vouivre regened his hp back to nearly full as we were raised and rested. It took about 30 mins after to kill him. I know I've said this already like 20 times to my LS, but thank you to the Valiance LS on Cerebus and everyone else that helped. A special thanks to Jonathan, the nicest and craziest (in a good way) paladin I ever met. He basically organized this whole thing for me because he was bored and was "looking for a good fight". I will wear my Gae Bolg with pride.

On Oct. 17th I killed him and recieved my Gae Bolg.

For people interested, PT Setup was only 12 people, which weren't lower than 73 (except for me of course, heh), if I remember right. ^^b He went down very easily, and we also had no BLM whatsoever. He most certainly is quite cuddly. :P

While it may not astonish everyone to learn that he doesn't aggro, it may be news to everyone that he does not link, either. He's probably the cuddliest, peaceful NM in the game (next to maybe Cactrot Rapido). :D

We were hunting Wyvern Skulls when he popped. Nobody in the alliance was sure if he aggroed or not so our brave THF tested it by running right up to him.

Nothing happened. We were largely thunderstruck, but relieved. However, we also weren't sure if we could continue to safely pull wyverns without him linking.

Once again, our ballsy Thief said 'raise me if I die, okay?' and ran out to pull another wyvern. He then proceded to run the thing in circles around Vouivre.

Nothing happened.

Vouivre doesn't link with the other wyverns in the area. :D

Nobody tried /heal in front of him. Short of directly attacking him, I don't think there's any way of getting his attention. Just don't go nuts because the regular Hurricane Wyverns are most certainly aggro.

Just a note for the people after the opo-opo crown. ^^/

Can anybody confirm what level range is able to kill this wyvern. I hear a full alliance (18 members) of level range 65-70 could take it, but other people have told me it takes like 18 people all 75 and probably have other members 75 standing by to replace the dead bodies.

Can somebody please confirm?

a group of 12 level 75s could kill him. all you need are 2 ninja tanks and people ready to paralyna tanks. 18 65-75 could kill him. just make sure you have ninja(or 75 war/37 ninja) tanks. paladins will get owned.

Silena is also needed for its Radiant Breath attack I believe.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 03 2004 at 9:51 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) To the best of my knowledge, this *** doesn't aggro at all. We took him out a few nights ago, and we we're walking all around him without sneak or invis. :P

Lvl is roughly 82 btw.
# Aug 19 2004 at 11:15 PM Rating: Default
Vouivre is the one HNM that lacks True Sight. Meaning, cannot see through sneak or invis, yet still above lvl 75.

Vouivre also does not link to the wyverns in the Cauldron, and can be "safely" taken by 2 full alliances roughly 70-75. It helps to bring another party though to clean up bomb aggro.
# Aug 13 2009 at 10:43 AM Rating: Decent
Just took him down last night with a party of 10 70-75's.


I was BLM all I did was roll though Frost, Rasp, Drown, Bio 2 and Poison 2 along with back up healing and removing Paralyze. One of the SMN was main healer and everyone else just did there job and it was over.

That depends on what you mean by HNM. So far, the only mobs I know of that see thru Sneak/Invis are, Behemoth-types, Adamantoise-types, Wyrm-types, the three Beastmen leaders (Za'Dha, Tzee Xicu, and Overlord Bagodak), and anything in Dynamis/Emptiness/a burning circle/etc. Yet many mobs that some people classify as HNM (Charybdis, Guirve, Bune, Vourvie, Ash Dragon) do not see through Sneak and Invisable. And don't even try to tell me that Ash Dragon has true sight, you were just careless and ran through without sneak because nothing else in the room aggros sound.

Guivre has true sight. So does Bune.

Vouivre does not aggro anything at all, hence no true sight.

Also, whoever talked about this like they knew what was up and said you need 2 full alliances...
Sorry, he's extremely easily pulled to where nothing will aggro you, especially not a bomb. You don't know what you're talking about.

Judging by Guivre, Bune, and the Wyverns around him, all of whom I've fought personally, you probably basically need 4-5 tanks, a few blm and healers, and some melee using spirits within.

12 people if set up properly should be able to do it easily, lv 65+, and must have at least 2 nins for sure, plus either more nins or some plds.

I know first hand that Guivre does not have true sight. You can sneak/invis right by him. I don't even know if you need sneak, but everything else around him aggros to sound, so he might as well be sneak/invis.

People tend to get killed by him because they only sneak in that area.
