  • Scratch: Single target physical damage with an additional Blind effect

  • Stormwind: AoE Wind based magic damage. (Circle of effect originates from mob)

  • Feather Barrier: Self target Evasion boost. (Effect can be dispelled)

  • Chainspell: Reduces spell cast times and recast times to zero.

    • Denoted by the characteristic mob 2hr animation.

Suzaku in Shrine of Ru'Avitau

Historical Information

Zhu Que (Suzaku in Japanese) is one of the four symbols of the Chinese Constellations, representing the "Vermillion Bird of the South" and of the season of Summer. The other three symbols being the "Black Tortoise of the North", the "White Tiger of the West", and the "Azure Dragon of the East".

Each symbol corresponded to an element in the Five Element system, with Zhu Que corresponding to the element of fire.

  • In the Five Element system in China, there is a 5th legendary beast known as Huang Long, the Yellow Dragon of the Center. While there is no direct equivalent in Japanese, Huang Long is believed to be linked to the dragon Ouryu

Suzy and the Bard

Got my Meritwhore .. errr, sorry, Brd75 ... Troubadour recently. Due to working until midnight 6x/week, never able to go with LS to sky anymore. In the past, I used to go on my Thf75 and have a lot of fun.

Anyway, question: if Brd were initially in the tank party and threw a SV/Troubadour/Fire Carol, how much will that cut down the damage from Suzy?

Also assume that besides a ton of Ballads and Min/mads on various groups as brd is switched in and out of parties, Ice Threnodies are wanted on Suzy for Blm Bliz attacks... how much difference will a Threnody make? One of these days, I will get off work in time to go to sky and find out myself, but in the meantime, would like any notes from Brds (or others) on the subject. Thanks in advance!

Normal bind and silence ?

Can a RDM not use normal bind on Suzaku when he 2H's ?

Does it stick with HQ Staff, high enfeeb skill and maybe the use of elemental seal ?
Can you silence Suzaku? Anyone ever saw that ?

if no1 disengages suzaku while shadowbind is on or if just one person hits suzaku while he's bound, it's not really the life of the person that's going to be gone, it's the lifes of everyone else that has hate... :\

Not a hard fight if you have a solid stun order. Chainspelled Flare a few times and Firaga III after that... needless to say RDM dont tank this god quite so well >.>

3 suzaku, 4 genbu, 3 kirin that I've been to and not one S Cloth for my nobles =( and I'm still in line behind 2 other whm. Drop rate on S cloth is total crap on all gods.

If shining cloth drops from Genbu, it is incredibly rare. I have fought him quite a few times and the only items I have seen from him that are like that are divine log and venomous claw.

I guess it can be nice for some gil but i think synthing some HQ's is much easier for gil.

me being a lv.80 Woodworker and 50 bonecrafter 600k for a few hrs of work is a hell of alot better then spending cash to synth items that may not even HQ. and if they do waiting the 1-10 days it takes for them to sell. You must not be a very high crafter to think u can pull 600k a day without a 3-4mil investment. Besides theres more then likely a 80% chance people do this for the Abjurations did u think of that?
Death is just another way to better understand life

Suzaku isn't really worth going out to kill for some gil i don't tjink.

Even if u do this with your LS he doesnt usually drop more than 7 or 8 mil in gil of items.

Split that up by 18 and ull each only end up with about 600k for a few hours.

I guess it can be nice for some gil but i think synthing some HQ's is much easier for gil.

Not all of us have a high level craft now though. For most players, 600k for just 'a few hours' work is amazing profit.

Only one I've seen is from when you kill Suzaku. Caught a screenshot

"That I shall bow my head to a mortal's might. You shall pay for this humiliation..."

Ominous threat no? He'll come back when you fight Kirin.

I parsed this guy last night and he had just under 25000 HP. I'm sure he can spawn with different levels though. I might update this post with other HP levels I see down the road. Easy fight if you know what you are doing.

Suzaku is pretty easy, just take caution when hes on his 2 hour because i've seen him to 2 back-to-back Fire IV and take a Pld out who wasn't careful.
