Ark Angel TT Picture

Contents [hide]

General Information

  • Appears in one of the five battlefield fights for the Ark Angels Zilart Mission 14.

  • When engaged, Ark Angel TT will periodically teleport around the battlefield, causing anyone attacking him to disengage.

Ark Angel TT Special Attacks

  • Black Magic: Capable of casting all Black Magic spells that level 75 Dark Knights and Black Mages possess (excluding the Black Mage tier II merit spells).

  • Amon Drive: AoE physical damage with additional Paralysis and Petrification effects.

  • Guillotine: Single target four-hit physical damage with additional Silence effect.

  • Manafont: Reduces the MP cost of all spells cast to zero, and prevents casting interruption by means of physical attacks. Denoted by the characteristic mob two-hour animation.

    • Stun, Paralysis, etc, is still capable of interrupting spell casts during Manafont's duration.

  • Blood Weapon: Restores HP to Ark Angel TT equal to the amount of damage it inflicts with each melee attack. Denoted by the characteristic mob two-hour animation.

note: you can duo it with a 73RDM/34NIN and 75WHM/37NIN. My bro's did it in about 18 min and 34 sec. Took them about 6 runs (one of them, both were dc'ed), but they won.
The wise warrior will fight until he can no longer win; while the foolish warrior will never stop fighting.

Ever since he struck me down with Thunder IV i've swore bitter revenege on that **** rapin taru.. and kill him with his own scythe :P

anyways.. this Taru looks really cool.. Does Silence or Blind work gaist him?

And i do hope SE makes that Scythe Dropable i'd love to slaughter many a mob with it..

Also why is he the only trully flying Crystal Warrior? Is the BLM force strong in him or something

Could he be one of my Legenday tarutaru ansestors that tried to rule Vana'Diel?? so many questions

to the part about the scythe: I guess if you were skilled enough with computers you could probably hack the DAT's to make whatever scythe (or any other 2H weapon i guess) to look like that...extremely **** scythe XD

During the first cut scene of the Zilart missions this guy decides to cast thunder on you and knocks you straight out. They the procede to


Kick Shadow Lords *** in about 5 seconds.


So you'd better be prepared for these guys otherwise you will be going down.

yeah thought I might just clue in in that this tarutaru doesn't drop anything it is a BCNM fight type Nm similar to the BCNM in the higher rank missions like sandy 7-2 for example but to access this guy you need to do ZM1-13 first which involves being atleast level 65 if you have any hope of getting this far not to mention it can take a good 30+ hours to get that far and if you even know what sky is you have to go there to fight him I beleive (yes sky where the gods live) and even if you get that far this guy can easily pwn a party of 75's so please don't go saying "omfg look at the kickass tarutaru im so cool i think ill go pwn him and take his sycthe"

lol, a 75 NIN friend of mine (<- 70 RDM) took me to fight him. we were doing awesome, got him below half health before I had to convert. we would have won if I had thought to wait a bit longer for paralyze from amon drive to wear off, so my convert was paralyzed out and I ran outta mp :( awesome and extremely fun fight though, just shows what a NIN and RDM duo can do ^^

I am pretty sure that the Ark Angels do not sub their second job, but have 2 main jobs at the same time. So this guy is not BLM/DRK or DRK BLM but DRK & BLM!

So, if you are a dark knight or a balck mage, you can probably count this guy as kin.

TT is most defintely a b@d@ss mofakka....

He's the first the has to die.

EV is no walk in the park either though. On one of our runs last night, she did Invincible first, then we beat her down to 10% HP, and blammo!

She used Benediction (T_T);

Fortunately, she was the last one left (or there may have been HM still getting kited around; I was dead that this point :P ) and the alliance continued to ping away on her until she died.

This guy is really annoying. In the pentasphere battle, you HAVE to take him out first because if left to his own devices he can really wreck your day. His AOE, Amon Drive, deals **** solid damage to everyone in range AND can Paralyze AND Petrify anyone it hits. Teleporting is annoying, but he didn't really do it all THAT often, at least in the Pentasphere battle, so physical attackers can still hit him. Other than random -aga spells and the Amon Drive, he's not all that tough, but if you let him spam Amon Drive at all you will die.

Who says level 70+ don't check out these forums? Why does everybody think that only the Japanese have high level characters? *shakes head*

However, I do agree with Tribalmonk on one thing: think before you speak, please. Nothing worse than acting like you know what you're talking about to have it thrown back in your face by somebody who does.

Despite what some of you people have said, this Tarutaru is anything but easy. The warp ability doesn't send him back to his homepoint, but it makes him next to impossible to hit with anything but magic. And no, lol, you cannot Silence him (but it's always worth a try ;)

Good luck leveling, and be nice to noobs. They end up out leveling you eventually ^^
