Vrtra's Spawn Location

  • Spawn time is 72-120 hours after last ToD, or 36-72 hours after a server maintenance when the servers are offline. Thirty minute intervals between each window.

  • Immune to Sleep, susceptible to Stun. Highly resistant to all enfeebles.

  • Has a potent auto-regen effect that cannot be dispelled.

  • Has a draw-in effect.

  • Periodically summons undead to assist him in battle. These undead are roughly the same strength as the undead mobs in the room and will share hate with Vrtra. Vrtra will spawn any two of these at a time.

    • Pey: A skeleton Warrior

  • Grants title: Vrtra Vanquisher

Vrtra Special Attacks

  • Absolute Terror: Single target Terror effect. Target is unable to perform any action until effect wears off.

  • Cyclone Wing: AoE magical damage with additional Sleep effect.

  • Sable Breath: Frontal cone AoE Dark based magic damage. Damage is strongest directly in front of Vrtra.

  • Spike Flail: Massive AoE physical damage. Absorbed by three shadows. Will only occur when a character has drawn hate from behind it.

  • Charm: Charms target to use as a pet. At around 85% of his hp, Vrtra will begin using this ability at random intervals. Denoted by the characteristic mob two-hour animation.

Vrtra in Riverne - Site #B01

  • Vrtra possesses the same abilities as his full strength counterpart in King Ranperre's Tomb, though has a decidedly lower amount of HP.

Historical Information

In Hindu mythology, Vrtra (Vritra, "The Devourer") was an Asura and was described as being a gigantic serpent or dragon with three heads. Initially said to hold all the world's rivers captive until its death at the hands of the god Indra, later tellings of Vrtra suggested that he was created by the heavenly builder Tvashtri to slay Indra, who had earlier slew Tvashtri's son.

After engaging in a battle in which Vrtra claimed victory (he had swallowed Indra, only to be forced by the other Devas to regurgitate him), the two struck a truce that Indra would not attack Vrtra with anything made of wood, stone, or metal, dry or wet, or during the day or night. Indra instead used foam from ocean waves (neither dry nor wet, and not made of wood, stone, or metal) and killed Vrtra at twilight (neither night nor day).

Hehe, Vrtra is just a money drop NM, not commonly taken down on the Fairy server, my LS is the only LS who kills it really, I think only one or two other LS on the server have taken him down. Most of Fairy's HNM LS's stay at Dragons Aery really, Everyone wants D Body and Ridill :P

This guys a bitch though, since all the pops and all the high level mobs around, but REvilers helm is nice for PLD/NIN's ^^ By all means hardest HNM before Absolute Virtue, whom of which can use all two hours ><
i'm scared of Ranperre's Tomb now...

I was wondering around aimlessly in this area, saw a circular room on the map and decided to see what was there. BIG mistake. Vrtra was up, and saw me pokin around his/her room... (only had sneak up, because i thought there were only skeletons in there). From what i'd guess, the result would be the same with invisible on... (heard that it's true sight). Anyway, you guys can guess what the end result of a level 60 Tarutaru Red Mage being attacked by Vrtra was. However, i AM proud to say that i survived 1 hit from the dragon! Only to be killed by a skeleton...

People in jeuno where doing shouts to go fight this, so being that I had just hit 70 at the time I decided to join up and test my luck. In total we had 3 alliances of 18 ppl. Biggest gathering for something I had seen so far lol. Whats even more funny is that 1/3 of the overall ppl died just trying to down to her thx to skele aggro lol. Ive never seen so many ppl die in one place lol. And the best part about it all is when we final got to vrtra and buffed up and all that good stuff, a taru decides to kamikaze it to fook us up and he gets us all killed LOL. So being the persistent group that we are we try one more time. Finally were all set to go. And another rng pulls vrtra and the very first thing this bastard does is Dispel~ga which (I didnt know he could do) and spiked flail. 1000~2000 dmg to all those poor ppl around. Then his summoned skeles finished of the rest of the survivors it was amazing ~_~

Just beat Vrtra tonight for the second time w/ Pxtzle. Full drop + first known Reviler's Helm on Unicorn server.^^ We wiped at our first attempt at 87% due to an unexpected spike flail, but we persevered and eventually beat it in about ~2 hours of fighting. Very fun fight^^

I was PT'ing as Paladin in King Ranperre's when I get shouts from higher level peeps up ahead about Vrtra. PT isn't too far from ending, so I'm all psyched and so are a few other psychos in my PT. When PT is over, a 75 BRD/WHM friend of another PT member pops in, he and five of us form together, sneak up and run like hell past the other mobs and pass the Giant Gate. The NIN, BLU, and PLD all run up ahead, while I stay behind cause my buffer is still a few points incomplete. The Ninja and Blue Mage go kamikaze, and the other Paladin uses Invincible to draw hate. They got a crapload of screenshots, I only got two at around this point, decide I'm satisfied, and back my ass up against the chamber door, far away from Vrtra and other undead. I start using Warp Scroll, and maybe halfway I noticed Vrtra started coming toward me. I take one last (bad) snap. At this point, just about everyone is dead aside from the Bard who helped us, but he got drawn in soon enough. Against whatever the odds were, my Warp activated, while everyone else, presumably, got whipped in King Ranperre's. Here are the SS I took:

On my server, seraph a ls called Galleon fought this thing and i herd it only took about 55 minutes to finish it off. They must have been on fire because they killed a Tiamat before it and proceeded to kill Jormungand right after it. wish i couldve been there. mustve been one long day. :)

my LS took this badass down a few days ago, we faced a bad start, wiped and got back up to start again. took about two and a half hours of fighting, but in the end we got a Dragon Harness for one of our THFs and a Sha'ir Manteel for a BRD. i guess we felt good about the win and wanted to go after another wyrm, so we took Tiamat down 3 days later. another Dragon Harness for us. Jorm, I'm hoping to see you fall over the weekend or sooner.

oh, and to all you BlackRoses haters of the Sylph server, dont have a problem with me cause im part of the LS. You don't know me, I haven't done anything wrong and as far as I know I haven't offended you in any way.

I did something similiar with my 32war/mnk, exept out of stupidity. I thought I had to go there for a revival tree root (1k on AH). When I got far enough down I freaked out and started using oils and prisms while checking the place out. I come to this door and decide why not? Then I see vrtra. A friend of mine (doesn't play) said "go get a closer look, you're invisible". I made a comment to my LS about this guy and by the time I got a "RUN AWAY" back from them I took my first hit. Though everyone was shocked that I survived two hits from this guy with no buffs at 32 and now are eager to see me lvl pal being the only galka on the LS. /(galka) (meat) (sheild) (impossible to guage)

usually when i'm done there with an EXP party, i like to take a side trip while waiting for members and see if Vrtra has popped close enough to the door that i can see him. Haven't seen him yet, but when i get whm to 26, i'm gonna run in there with a death wish.

the real way to beat vrtra is simple.It's just like cecil fighting himself in FF4. You do nothing. You dont attack, you just heal, dont have weapons equiped, use cover, and defensive moves only and vrtra will die after 10 mins.

Just a tiny note from what I was viewing, Dynamis Lord and Kirin's names have both appeared. By this point most people know very well that Vrtra is alot harder than Kirin {The comments on Kirin VS Vrtra or whatever obviously Vrtra would decimate Kirin as Vrtra has an amount of HP and Auto Regen that would be fairly impossible for Kirin to deal with.} Dynamis Lord however is designed as a 64 person fight. Also I will note that as with much of these HNMs and Dynamis events they are fairly over played by those that first encounter these MOBs. Kirin and Vrtra both had a period of time where noone could beat them, then people developed a plan of attack that worked as with Dynamis Lord who has been beaten and it took far less time to figure that out. I'm still certain our friend Vrtra is still on top of the most bad-ass MOBs in Vana'diel. Kirin on Fenrir is a novelty I mean I take a walke down lower jeuno and see a good 11 Kirin's Osodes at least. Not including everyone else on the entire server Lower Jeuno alone and that are online. For that many Osodes to be in one spot at one point in time on our Server is proof that people are taking him down like a punk. I've seen tons of people with tons of impressive titles. Beating Vrtra is an accomplishment it will always be an accomplishment and anyone thats beaten him has earned the title. You can't Dead Wieght that title like you can with Dynamis Lord. If you get "Vrtra Vanquisher" you had to have done our fair part. This to me proves Vrtra is still the biggest and baddest on the field. Dynamis Lord as impressive as he is and as hard as he is. You can bring a level 65 Nobody in for the trip and they can recieve the Title with no effort except by their friends.

Although the post was a little hard to read, it seemed pretty evident to me that he didn't say the battle took 20 minutes, he said the video was "20 min of this battle", meaning, I assume, he's only offering the last 20 minutes of video documented proof that he was the last man standing when Vrtra fell.

Hi post may have deserved some low ratings for readability, but I have to assume that all the rate-downs he got were because of the little one-liner of someone who couldn't read properly.

As many other whm's seem to do when they get bored, I too decided it was time to see this horrid creature. I wasnt sure where he spawned but had a good idea just from looking at the map. So I head down there as my 52 whm to check it out and get a few pics. Needless to say I wound up face down in the dirt but I did get some pics^^

He's big..He's bad..He's Vrtra. We all know and lover our big purple friend, but I kind of find it a bit dissapointing how he gets whooped on a weekly basis (on Asura Server he does).. It's as if he doesn't live up to the name HNM anymore. Seems to me like he's not a challenge now. Am I the only one that feels this way about him?

Ok ive fought tiamat and jorm, but have yet to get in the killing allaicne for Vrta. Have gone many times to watch and help on adds... hoping for a invite when one of the SMNs in killing allaince goes down, yet to get one. Personaly form the looks of it Jorm seems to be more of a challenge due to the bombs and ice elmentals. And Vrta doesnt go airborne. Lots of BLMs in the add allaince its seems here, as wiht Jorm mostly BST to kite away Bombs adds and BLM for the elmentals. Tiatmat isnt even worth talking about. Senn him dropped byt 18x BST and the did it FAST. the few jorm battles ive been in SMN were the A+ DD for the fight. Blm has nothing a a SMN when it comes to WYRMs. 1k + DMG with spinning dive? {you can have this}

PS: fought jorm 3 times, each time we wiped when he was less the 10%, to much AOE. Full wipe means you start over, as by the time WHMs got 3-4 PPL up he was back to 100%, 3 hours gone, but much fun ww

# Aug 30 2005 at 1:19 AM Rating: Decent
Aye, that Regen they have is a total bitch. Actually, Vrtra does indeed fly, however not nearly as much as Tiamat. But you're right he doesnt fly often enough to be a real problem. As far as Jorm goes though, The adds are indeed a pain in the ass, but the sheer power of Vrtra isn't to be shrugged off. Vrtra is a beast.

uhhh Vrtra does not fly. and i call BS on 18 BST's killing tiamat, he would tear through the pets with his wing aoe and one shot them with an attack. He crit's for upwards of 700 dmg when he's on mighty strike's.

I don't know much about this nm, but this guy on my server *who is ass* claimed he soloed this as a lvl 75 sam/smn.

Personally, I don't think this is soloable by a single sam/smn and that guy is just an asshat. But someone please comfirm my theory :\

As a represenative of the Samurai community we are ashamed of this "asshat" and wish to cut any affileration with him. I'm sure the SMN community will do the same.
RE: Soloable?
# Aug 28 2005 at 3:47 AM Rating: Default
Ok, about this "asshat" on your server. Lets just say this, if he had two cents for everytime he LIED his ass off. I reckon he'd have at least two cents. This Beast is NOT soloable in any way shape or form. I know this. I've seen personally a full 75 6/6 party (not enough) party get wiped by him.. really quick. Nin/War, Nin/War, Rdm/Whm, Drg/War, Blm/Smn, Whm,Smn (and they're gear wasn't too shabby either). Although the second nin did miss his voke and the first nin dropped in TWO hits. Maybe because Vrtra used "Mighty Strikes" but who knows. Also, usually when he gets taken down it's by an ALLIANCE of 70-75 hardasses who kite him around. He flies around and really isn't able to be engaged in melee, much like Tiamat. I'm very sure that people have tried to solo him before. Maybe a Rdm/Nin with shadows and lots of "Chainspell" "Stun". They were most likely (definitely) Smeared all over the cave wall. But anyways, the answer two your solo query is a definite and very confident no. /end rant.

I can't say for sure one way or the other, but considering all I've read/heard about Vrtra....

I think it's safe to say he's a braggart and a liar. ^^'

Because not only are you just fighting Vrtra, but he summons a hoard of undead that I believe (though I'm not 100%) are all lvl 75 or higher to fight with him.

Soloable? I don't think so...

anyone tried using Indra Katars on this thing to see if there's any hidden effect? Wouldn't suprise me if SE did something like that.


yes i did and

"Perkins hits Vrtra for 48 points of damage"
"additional effect: 0 damage"

lol

gotta love that great additional effect

one thing i did notice was i never missed ok i had acc song on but i was also blinded and it was like 10 seconds before i got killed but with hundred fists i got in a good 20 hits before i died at at least 30+ dmg per hit

ps. hes actually a pansy he can be soloed by a lvl 1 whm they are only making this stuff up so no1 fights him!

me and my bud who was a 51 RDM at the time wanted to catch a glimpse of Vrtra and take a few pictures, sure we got down there thanks to my friend, but Vrtra was staring straight at us when all the sudden he says "INVISABLES WEARING! Run Away!" before we could turn around to run Vrtra aggrod me and hit me for 811 DMG as a 30PLD/15WAR with Protect 4 and Sentinal, it ate his Blink, Stoneskin, and Phalanx and hit him for 677 DMG, we swore 1 of 2 things: we'd never look at Vrtra again, or we would be back one day with a full alliance to kick arse (oh and we managed the screenshots too >.O)

Vrtra = Wyrm
Guivre = Wyvern

Wyrm are the most difficult type of mob in the game while Wyvern can be exp'd on and you are able to regularely farm up items from them (in a party of course)

For the next 3 days after Vrtra's been defeated or after server maintnence, his room makes a pretty good exp camp for a high 60s~low 70s PT. Plenty of mobs to pull but also some safe corners to pull to. Don't forget, you can pull from both sides of the door too so you will never run out of mobs. As with any undead PT, it's best if you have a MNK or 2 in the PT.
