Pallas's Spawn Location (Vunkerl Inlet)

  • Spawns three Pallas's Tigers to assist him in battle. They will respawn killed, so immobilizing them in some manner as opposed to killing them is advised.

Pallas Special Attacks

  • Grand Slam: AoE physical damage.

  • Lightning Roar: Frontal cone AoE Thunder based magic damage.

  • Power Attack: Single target physical damage.

  • Familiar: Increases the power of the summoned pet.

    • Denoted by the characteristic mob two-hour animation.

Historical Information

In Greek Mythology, Pallas was a member of a race of giants known as the Gigantes, created from the blood spilled after the god Chronos castrated his father Uranus. Confronting the goddess of wisdom Athena during the great battle known as the Gigantomachy, he was slain and his skin was used to create Athena's shield, the Aegis (see Aegis).

Just to bring to everyone's attention, there is an alternate pallas that spawns in K-6 Area of Vunkerl Inlet[S]. I'm not sure of respawn time, or lvl of this one, but he does drop Pallas Shield R/E for bst. Stats if i remember correctly are enhance reward effect, and Pet defense +10. dunno if it drops anything else but LS member asked for some help on this guy, so i went whm initially, but changed to bst later on. So anyway, this guy had 3 pet tigers already spawned when i got there, and noticed as we took em out, he did respawn them, one at a time. I missed anything that he did TP move wise, cuz i had my bst on one of the tigers, as did the other 2 bsts that were in the group. War in our group said that he did that lightning roar thingy that gigas do, for 1k+. tigers had what seemed like -enparalyze, the usual roar, and the claw cyclone, that had a cone aoe, not sure if the normal claw cyclone is cone aoe or not, but these guys have it. anywho, we wiped once, got up, had a few more ppl join, 2nd try, we win! doesnt seem to have a whole lot of hp, but he does hit hard. Have fun^^

^ what the title says.


I got to solo Pallas first and many times as the buckler won't drop that often. Pallas was a tad difficult but if you pay attention and do everything right you can do it. Alky is higher level so I was worried about soloing him. Alky turned out to be easier than Pallas.

Pallas was hitting something like 65 and his bat about the same for 120 each round. Alky was hitting for something like 92 every round except for his 133 ish mighty strikes attacks. Easy Prey!



EDIT: another thing that makes Pallas a little harder to kill, is the fight area. You have to clear 1 - 3 bats depending on which is in the way and clear some gigas. If there is heavy farming you are in the clear. Otherwise, I had to kill the 2 incubus bats by the stairs to alky and the bats in the middle. Then killed one or two gigas in the path. Then pulled pallas before others can repop (pulled to stairs going up). I only have to do all that clearing if i'm alone. It's actually easier if others are there killing stuff.

I can kill Alky no problem as rdm/nin so I thought "hey let's kill Pallas, it will be fun." Well it's a lot harder then it sounds. One thing I didn't know is that if you kill the bat, he just summons it again. The hardest part of the battle was keeping shadows up while I killed the bat and held off Pallas at the same time. Finally the bat goes down and I start to hit Pallas and about 1 minute later he summons the bats again -_-. It's at this point I try to equip my warp cudgel and get out of there but I went down quick.

me75thf/nin and my friend 75drg/whm were booooored so we decided to camp pallas/alky. We got up to the 11th and 12th floors and wow. the jotunns are way too overcamped. We started killing jotunns. laughed at a few RMT deaths=].
after about an hour we got pallas's pop item. right before we pop a bat pops on him we start killing and he casts a spell and the pots aggro him=[.
he died i flee to a corner and finish off the bat. He gets up and to full hp/mp. we pop it. we pull it to a corner and start. the plan was for me to kill the bat while he holds it off for a little. i just killed the bat and when pallas was at about 75-80% health he dies leaving me to fight it solo. i start spamming bloody bolts and Utsusemi: Ni and Ichi i drop into red a few times. lowest was 80hpX.X. he reraises and just cured me a few times while he was weak. then he 2hrs. NOT FUN.about 5-10mins later I kill it ughhhh. we get the bracelets first try. =] this nm is hard. i wouldnt have been able to do it without my friend. I wouldnt try to attempt this solo. without being a NIN or a mage/NIN or something. goodluck!

Now a days, the GS wait till you pop the **** mob and then steal the bat away and kill it there by ******** your fight. Everytime my friends and I popped him, all the GS would do is crowd around trying to steal the bat. They should make it where it doesn't matter if you kill the bat or not, because he should do his charm move anyway.
I think that would help with the problem of people just waiting and trying to kill the bat so they can MPK/Steal Pallas. It would also make you come more prepared to handle the NM.

Just my 2 cents

Bascially, My friend (75 BRD) and I (75 PLD) decide to have a go at Pallas/Alky to earn some ever increasing hard to attain gil. As you would expect for not a week gone by since the update, its pretty busy on both floors but we manange to get a Hoary Battle Horn after 2 or so hours and decided to have a go at Pallas. Up to 50% was fine, however instead of continueing to kill the normal mobs for pop items, the other players in the areas attention turned to us and started crowding round us and killing the pots and bats as well. Not thinking anything of it we carry on till about 40% when I got charmed. This wouldnt of been much of a problem as we had a plan of action if this happened, However....
The closest SAM to me pulls out his GK and WS, Meditate and WS again, at this point I was ****** and to be honest, thinking it was a GS (anon, cheap gear, etc) started telling him what i thought of him. However it gets worse and soon all other i class as "real players" engage and what can only be classed as "beating the living crap out of me".
Needless to say my BRD friend wasnt able to handle him on his own and soon fell as well.

I just question peoples drive to this game sometimes, at other busy poped NMs there has been respect in setting up orders so EVERYONE can get a claim and kill which they spent there time doing and EVERYONE gets what they came for.


This same exact thing is happening on Remora too. They did it to us twice. I know dumb of us to pop a 2nd time but what the h*ll. I placed 2 seperate GM calls and we all know where that ended.

There is a god :) get the feeling its too little too late now the prices are so low.

At the following time, we performed a version update of FINAL FANTASY XI.

We have received numerous reports where a player charmed by Notorious Monster "Pallas" was being attacked by other players in the area for the purpose to steal the claim. This issue was causing conflicts among the players. As a temporary solution, the following update was performed.

For awhile the eco on Seraph has gone to ***** believe it or not cause the sudden change in the price of everything so we decided to earn a 900k to share it is only 900k! but it shows how sad some ppl have become to obtain it... this K.O. if i got it on vid was cold blood and they proceeded to fail in the game as they did at life..

I know what some of u will think reading this whats the big deal???
if you had spent the time getting the spawn items then suspected GS cutting down ur mate knowing it would mean they claim just for 900k.....

Probably because this game is competitive, if you were more prepared all they can do is sit and cry they don't have a chance at the NM. But they KNEW you would not have been able to handle Pallas.

No matter the outcome, you wouldn't have killed Pallas. Unless you're prepared for the Charm, you will never kill him.

Can you pop him and wait for him to summon his bats and then zzz the bats, so he doesn't charm you, or is that a bad idea?

New Pallas Pop Information
# Mar 07 2007 at 5:19 PM Rating: Decent
26 posts
Pallas is now spawned using a Hoary Battle Horn. I popped him today but I never used the horn. I was mid trade with it, and he suddenly appeared. I asked the THF I was with if he popped it, he said no. Details of how this happened... are unknown to me at this time.

Perhaps it was a glitch. The horn was an item that dropped of of Jotunn Gatekeepers.

Edited, Mar 7th 2007 5:31pm by KhimariRonso

Ok so yes, you need to trade horn to pop Pallas... he faces north so if you are south of the ??? he should pop without aggroing you... give him a minute or two... and he'll summon his bat... Leave the bat alive, focus on Pallas... If the bat dies... he will charm you and charm can last as little as 30 seconds and as long as 5 minutes. When you are charmed... anyone can attack you and you lose claim on Pallas. Leaving the bat alive will prevent him from charming you... just pray no one claims the bat and kills it before his 2hr.

This is known about most BST mobs. (excluding some that can charm multiple Targets) That if you sleep his Bats, he cannot charm you. I killed him with my Bst, a ninja and Rdm Friend. Rdm managed to sleep the bats, and we just wailed on Pallas. he two houred, but no charm, since he has a pet.

I had felt suicidal the day before, so I had walked up (with oils/powders, of course) to Stellar Fulcrum. I logged back on the next day, then began my leisurely walk down. I drop through a hole on the top floor, and land RIGHT ON TOP of this guy. NOBODY was around, and I waited a good ten or fifteen minutes. Still nobody. I decided (not knowing what level it was) to try to solo it...as a 53 monk.

Pallas and his bat smashed me into a gory jelly.

(Btw, bracelets are 9mil on remora, but just sold for 15mil at last check)

This is 100% Guaranteed NOT 21-24 hour pop. How do I know? I saw him die last night at 2:41 A.M. CST. Came the next day at 11:30 P.M. and stayed until 3:20 A.M. ...no pop. This means his window has to open before 21-24 hours. My guess is its 18-24 but I'm not campin him again to find out. All I can say is the window is NOT 21-24 hours.

man me and my ls always tend to claim this guy now over the RMT on my server. its gotten so bad that they try to mpk us every chance they get. which is funny as all get up cause they are never able to pull it off. me and my rdm bud always duo this guy sometimes my ls come out to help if they are not passed out sleeping but mostly its just me and my rdm friend. but yeah now i've been warned by the RMT that they will mpk me every chance they get. oh well they can try i'll just avoid it like i did on serket the other night. 7 total mpk's to my pty. i missed the first 2 attempts but they wiped my ls other than my and a whm i just stayed out of range of the aggro but withing range to keep claim on serket and let him come to me. had to kite and fight though the last 5 mpk's till the GM came out. but all in all killed serket and he droped meds wtf. oh well.

anyway watch out for those RMT they love to mpk just let them die and run like **** out of that area and you'll be fine.

What is up with the repop time on this guy?

Originally it was thought to be 21-24 hour like Alky, but that's not right... I went there a few times an hour or so before the window even started to find him already up, and then on other times he didn't up until a minute before the 24th hour.

It would really suck if it's 18-24h or something like that... Up 6 hours camping;;... But I'm beginning to think it must be something like that, because it has spawned before the 21st hour quite a few times in my history of camping him.

En-route to do ZM "Flying Poon" as I like to call it, we 75 whm 74 nin 72 drk 70 brd 68 thf, bounced into this guy. right next to him was a dead lvl 74 whm lol, so soon as we realize what has happend nin runs out and pulls him in. Of course his bat links all the other bats in the area since nin took scenic route back so bard horde sleeps the pack and stays to heal drk and myself while we thin the links, nin and whm set to pallas. By the time the bats are cleared drk and I set over to Pallas, Brd maintains sleep on the pet. Nin has nearly finished off the NM so drk and I have enough time for a couple of hits, but THF gets last strike of course. Drops mahogony shield and a pair of socks, aww well for a snatch pull im happy we got to fight him and have a chance at ~900k / share.

In Follow up, a nin could easily solo this guy so long as he doesnt go overboard on the pull, matter of fact anybody that can sleep or dispatch the bat and blink tank should have an ez time taking this guy down.
