Historical Information

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

Each symbol corresponded to an element in the Five Element system, with Xuan Wu corresponding to the element of water.

  • 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

Helped my ls kill him twice last night (well, mostly i just helped cure the tanks, and died a couple of times when I got to close to his AOE attack, and one time when I drew hate (mental note, throwing around Cure IV and III with +Emnity gear not a great idea). Second time, I won bid on arbitration for koenig hands, and crimson boots....and both dropped :D :D :D :D now all i need is like another 7 lvls or so and some gil to get them made.

I have been fighting Genbu for 5 months now...once a week, sometimes twice.

In those five months he has dropped TWO Aquarian Abj: Hands...

The ONE thing I want from Sky (BLM) ; ;

I have the cursed mitts ready and everything :( The two times he dropped were the only two times I couldnt make it to Gods because of family...

Die Genbu, die -.-

we just fought our first god on saturday on a new hnmls, with none of us lvl 75 we took it down with hardly any trouble, just at the start we had a few deaths but we got back up and roasted it. We only had 1 whm lvl 68 I think.

Hint : MNK/WHM with full mnd gear will toast it.

Avesta is just amazing. Hes got BLM and RDM at 75, tons of gear that we all dream about, and has soloed so many things. Zippacna, Apis (ENM), Maquis Orias (Dynamis-Xarcabard NM), Desert Swarm. The site is down now >< I really want to see him do Genbu.

Erm...have you watched the vids? If so, please tell me what part of that badassedness looks like it was hacked? None? Thought so. Avesta doesn't do anything impossible.

It isn't hacking...it's skill. And maybe the gear.

Nope, hes been around a very very long time, and yea if you see his gear >.> {Impossible to Gauge}, gear has alot to do with solo'ing didnt think it mattered much with smn (due to just needed insane mp) but as playing thf and solo'ing even match all the way to incredibly tough ive noticed every little bit of decent gear though i wasnt able to solo incredibly tough till about lvl 30 when some of the good thf gear opened up though when it comes to anything at Very Tough or higher its quite hard (for me lvl 30 nub thf give me a break >.>) but i can solo tough very tough at 30 on a regular basis but IT well i have succesfully taken down two IT mobs a tiger out in batilla downs yea it was like i had like 2 hp (damn paralyze spells) and a Gob which went quite smoothly got cocky tried again and wiped due to me (capped marksman) not being able to blind/bloody/sleep when needed and he got a double attack off took two shadows did a goblin rush well no more shadows and hurt then a bomb toss brought me down to about 40 something hp and finally one hit death, when you solo you realize some of it takes skill some takes equip others is just plain luck :P Avesta just happens to have the combination of all three ^^b Have Fun and if solo'ing use reraise or something >.> Good luck

I would say you need to think about what you're going to say before you post something. If you think Avesta hacks, then you're just plain stupid. Why do you think that such a feat is not possible? I myself have access to a rdm75 and find soloing avatars laughable. Generally speaking, avatars aren't easy fights, and they're not hard fights. So it's really no big deal that I can solo them. But the point is, is that they're pathetic to solo. Now, if I, a rdm with few merits, and decent gear finds such fights to be laughable. What do you think Avesta would think of the fights? A rdm with insane gear and plenty of merits to boot. Exactly, he would solo the avatars and make me look like some rank 1 dumbass nab, even though the fights are easy for me. Simply put, open your eyes, this game's jobs are far more powerful then you realize, if you think people hack to achieve some of these feats then maybe you simply aren't good enough at what you do, and need to either quit whining or step it up a notch. Sorry for the rant, but some people just need to quit thinking everyone hacks on this game, 'cause they don't; they're just simply, that good.

atseva.sakura.ne.jp/genbu.zip

the INSANE jp taru who's infamous for soloing ENMs and BCNMs like bionic bug and operation desert swarm, took down genbu two days ago.

supposedly the fight took five hours, and what you get when you download the .zip is a screenshot of him popping genbu solo, and then fighting him around 50% HP. the movie itself is of the final 30 seconds @_@

April 16, 2005, Time of Death, 3:47 PM Eastern Standard Time, Cait Sith server

Party Setup:
Matthias - Rng 73 /Nin
Karnir (me) - Brd 72 /Whm
Imrahil - Pld 71 /War
Rhaine - Blm 60 /Whm
Maxwell - Rdm 63 /Blm

And yes, you saw those last two jobs correctly.

For the first half of the fight, until Genbu used his Invincible 2hr, Imrahil was our kiter, while Matt basically went all out, and kited himself when he grabbed hate. Rhaine would stun, and Maxwell would main heal, while I threw in song support obviously.

Bout 3/5ths in, Matt took hate basically full time, and Imrahil died, er... three times(?) trying to get hate back, until we just decided to kite and damage it using Shadowbind and Sealed Gravity (yes, Rdm is lv 63, and Gravity did not resist once with ES).

Every single one of us took the fall at least once... I can't remember if Matt took a dive though, lol...

With a fraction of health left (on Genbu), Matt uses Barrage Slug Shot for 386 dmg, and Rhaine follows up with Sealed Freeze for another 284 dmg. Five minutes later, Matt Barrages 247 for the win.

Drops:
1x Earth Crystal
The Seal of Genbu
Arctic Wind
Aquarian Abjuration: Hands
Venomous Claw

Claw ^^ And the cost is split for five people alone, how's that for instant fortune?

I'll have screenshots up later on my website, and I think Imrahil is going to do a follow up post to link to the images he took.

And just for bragging rights, I'm posting this in the Genbu bestiary, and Cait Sith forums :P

I actually died four times, pretty much all in quick sucession. I'd get hate then go down again. On one occassion I shield bashed him... then he hit me for 300 with added effect 200 and a crit for 703 all in one monster double attack. I lost a grand total of ~7000 xp but oh boy was it worth it.

Near the end Matt would get hate with his shooting, then I'd get it back with a voke and flash and kite it until he pulled it again. Basically we just had to be patient and wear him down.

Here are the promised pictures:

Genbu is incredibly easy. I've yet to hear of even a weak LS wipe to him. He does have the highest Defense of any of the 4 Gods, but hes not that hard to hit.

Genbu is the D student of sky. Plain and simple, he is astoundingly weak. He hits hard-ish so nin tank or war tank, whichever. OR if you havent any, a pld can tank it just fine. No need to kite or Shadowbind, its 2 hr is useless. Also he does NOT drop w. Abj. Legs. that is a kirin only drop!

I am fairly sure Genbu does not drop W. Legs. Haven't seen it in ~30 Genbu fights. On the other hand, Kirin drops W. Legs for us about 40% of the time.

Durnit Aze & CE, you're blocking part of my name. So much for my 30 seconds of fame. ; ;

Cheers!

Zipacana, the NM that drops the stone to spawn Genbu , is harder than Genbu itself. ~.~

Our lvl 61 rdm landed gravity on Genbu 2x in one battle. Keep that on him and kite and you'll be fine. His 2hr isn't too bad, but it can be stopped with a well place Shadowbind.

PS - Fear my Chi Blast of 1370. ^^

I dunno if you ever fought Genbu before... but Genbu is a Paladin, he uses Invincible as his 2 hour. Disengage & Shadowbind is not required in the least, nor is kiting. Tortoise Song seems to do nothing at all, WatergaIII Flood and Water IV are easily stopped by a few DRKs and a stun order. Tortoise Stomp could meaby do a Ninja in if he happens to do it just as Utsusemi goes down, like after a PoisongaII for example.

I have found the easiest yet longest way to kill this is to kite it with a pld. Keep gravity and bind when you can just have pld voke cure self and other members and use other abilities to gain hate. Our ls does this every time w/o any deaths and it takes about 10-20 mins to kill it. If you keep gravity on it the melee just run behind it and hit while mages nuke. Anyway just throwing in my strat. The new genbu looks sweet.

Our LS recently fought Genbu 4 times and beat him with ease each time. He attacks really slow, has massive defense and I would guess about 20k HP or so. He does have an AoE Poison and AoE regular att that does about 200-300 dmg. Also he has one big attack that can take down your tank with ease. A good strategy is to have 2 pallys in front and have 2-3 THF's SATA hide before engaging to stick about 1000 dmg to the pally. We beet him in about 12-15 minutes, like I said, not too tough.

I don't believe Genbu drops the Zenith Crown or Crimson Greaves directly. Genbu drops the Aquarian Abjuration: Hands (used to uncurse the Cursed Mitts [-1] to make Zenith Mitts [+1]) and Wyrmal Abjuration: Feet (used to uncurse the Cursed Greaves [-1] to make Grimson Greaves [+1])

I think he knew that, just making it easier for other people to know. Since abjurations can be a pain if you dont know them^^

Genbu dropped cloth for a LS on my server a couple weeks ago, so although insanely rare, he does indeed drop it.

And 85 seems a little high for Zip, I'll check how much exp we get next time we kill him,

I do not believe Genbu drops Shining Cloth, though Suzaku does. Genbu's big money drop is the Claw. ^^

Gem of the North drops off of Zipacna (Lv 85 HMN Golem) He's a pain to kill, he hits twice, he hits fast, he hits hard, and you will need accuracy bonuses to land hits on him. You can find him in Ve'Lugganon Palace. Takes about 8+ people to kill if you have a good group.

This guy isn't THAT easy. You guys make it seem like killing a god is a walk in the park. My friend killed this guy and he uses 2-Hours when he is hurt. (Invincible) And he can additional effect: Extra damage for a good 200 + his origional damage even to well equiped Paladins. Not to mention if you screw up the Stun spaming when he uses a sell everyone will die. (12 people died because someone was 4 seconds slow to cast Stun.) Other then that Ninjas should watch out for his spells cause Utseumi clones won't help you there.
