General Information

Upyri's Spawn Location
Upyri's Spawn Location

  • Respawn is approximately 21-24 hours after its last ToD.

    • Unlike normal bats, Upyri can spawn during the daytime hours.

  • When fought during the day, Upyri is decidedly weak, being easily soloable by most lv. 60 jobs. At nighttime, his attack and accuracy are considerably increased.

Upyri Special Attacks

  • Subsonics: AoE Defense down effect.

  • Ultrasonics: AoE Evasion down effect.

  • Blood Drain: Single target HP drain effect.

  • Marrow Drain: Single target MP drain effect.

  • Soul Accretion: Single target status absorption effect.

Historical Information

In Russian legend, the Upyri is said to be an iron toothed vampire that hunts during the day, often attacking children first and then their parents. The Polish version of the Upyri, the Upier, would have a forked, barbed tongue in place of its teeth, and would explode when staked.

Popped at 0:00, ~22hr after death, claimed at 0:50, and was hitting a DD geared 72mnk/war for 130-160 a hit, but I was doing ~930 howling fists on it. ACC was nowhere near 100%, probably closer to 70%, as he did miss me more than I expected. Called npc and duo'd with a 72thf/nin trading hate, if we didn't trade hate and I solo'd I probably would've died. No need to 2hr, but by the end I was in the yellow and thf wasn't hit once.

Of note, that I didn't see on here, it started spamming some "drain" move (forget the name) that steals one status effect when it gets low on health; took protect, shell, and RR. We killed it well before 4:00, and vamp earring dropped w/cloak. Could've been coincidence.

[edit] It is mentioned on here near the bottom, soul accreation which he used 3 times back to back near death.

I can also confirm that he is as strong as the time you claim

Nah he does get harder at night even if you claim during the day. His mean hrs are 20:00-4:00, same time that undead spawn in most outside zones. People think that he doesn't get harder at night if you claim in the day cause they are killing before 20:00 thinking that 18:00 is when he gets harder.

Thats totaly false... I held him over 18min to see if he gets any harder.. Low and behold he was as pansy as when I claimed him. That was during the day and help for about 18min I held till 1:00. I even left down shadows to see If he hit any harder he was still hitting 60's. When you do claim at night and not during the day he is much harder. He took down 2 ni's and ichi then hit me for 170-210 on 75THF/37NIN. Even when he landed ultrasonic he missed 90% of the time. So this is a BUSTED..

It's not just daytime Upyri vs. nighttime Upyri. Claim him right at midnight sometime. He's practically impossible to solo with a conventional job/subjob setup. You can get him down to 25% pretty easily, but then the 3x TP move spam becomes overwhelming.
lottery spawn?

is upyri a lottery spawn from anything in the area or does he just spawn when he feels like it?

no, he's not a lottery, he will spawn when he feels like.
I can also confirm that he is as strong as the time you claim. I claimed at 5:50 as a 72 thf in full evasion gear, he took my shadows straight away and was jitting for 150ish each hit. Dancing Edges were only doing 300-400.

Ended up dying so I HP'd and came back with my NPC fellow. Called him, went in Sneak Attack, took about 20% of his HP, a few hits, a Dancing Edge and he was dead. Only took 1 shadow when engaged during the day
too weak

NIN75/37THF Just took this thing down at night, and it was actually not very strong. :\ I guess it's just easier for a Ninja to solo it, but it does get rather annoying when it steals your shadows numerous times with Soul Accretion. >_< No earring though. Cloak and Boots that go for, like, 10k each. ._.

Might want to make a distiction here... I saw a lot of people state that if you wait till day or vice versa his level does not change. Upon closer inspection, I realized all of those posts mention that they kited the mob till day, which to me means they had claimed it at night, and ran around till day popped.

I just witnessed two friends (75rng/thf, 68sam/thf) claim Upryi at night (23:00 Lightsday) and get SMASHED. They both flee'd with 50 hp to spare and got to the dilapted gate.

75rng ran to Tavnazian and changed to 75whm/nin, while the Sam stuck around and kept an eye on Upyri.

Night turns to day while Upyri was unclaimed, and when the Whm returned they proceed to SMASH on Upyri. The reason we know the lvl of Upyri didn't change is due to the dmg dealt by the Sam. At night he was doing 58 avgerage, and during the 2nd fight in the day he was doing 160 avgerage. O that and they didn't both die :P

Now I realize you can't always just sit around and watch an NM waiting for night or day, I just wanted to point out that it doesn't matter when he pops, it's when you claim him that determines his strength.

And they got the Cloak and Mask as drops.

Well, I'm camping Odqan as BRD66/BLU11, Reason for /blu is i can use Fire Carol for bombs and Paeon, Cocoon, Sand Spin and Sprout Smack really help in soloing, and always stick. So i am camping and i think fog goes by alot but not a single bomb pops. So pised off i decide to see if this guy is up and maybe get a ToD.

I run in and there he is sitting in a corner. I have full hp / mp (auto refresh from gaudyharness is amazing :) ) so i lullaby him, resist, horde lullaby resist, so he cant be slept :( This was during the night also. Quickly cast Minne IV, Paeon V, and cocoon (400 Def) and engage, he went from hitting me fom 100dmg+ to 15-40dmg, + he misses alot with acc down from sand spin. First Vorpal Blade with 230% tp does 390 dmg, the others at 100% tp do about 100-230 to him, decent imo.

Killed him no drop but Mask and Cloak. I guess i can camp him again, but i didnt see much high hitting with my defense during the night. Wasnt afaird though since he resists sleep, always got soul voice as a back up ^^

But heres that main reason why i posted:

Whats his drop rate on the earring? I want to camp as /thf if i use eva+ gear, and i think i could kill him, but is drop rate so bad from what i have herd that /thf wouldnt really matter?

Thats not Upyri..The bomb is Odqan. Upyri is the vampire bat with a 21-24 hour spawn.

If you look at what drops Lavacool said, you'll notice that this was actually the NM killed. Please read the full post, before making your own post saying the person was wrong.

Me and a friend have been killing this thing for some quite time. The cloak is 100% drop, the earring is REALLY rare. Only 1 earring on AH history in Hades. But I was wondering, I always came to fight it as WAR but can a BLM solo it?

I just killed this guy on Lakshmi as 67 MNK/THF. He got me down to a little below half. A fairly easy fight with Hundred Fists and my +eva gear. He dropped a mask and cloak, no earring though :(

I was running through misareaux on my way to riverne when I spotted a funny colored bat. Never heard anything about him so I just threw on focus and dodge and went to work. It was around 10:00 at the time, though I have no idea when he popped.

had 3 day kills, 3 night kills, cloak seems to be 100%, and the 3 day kills were each cloack and mask, 3 night kill were cloack and boots.

has anyone else seen this pattern? not that it matters boots and mask are equally worthless.

My luck is *** so no earring yet lol. Also it has never dropped any bat parts for me...not that anyone would care, but it hasnt. Has anyone gotten the earring during the day?

I think someone mentioned it in passing down below, but the mobs strenght is based entirely on when it pops, I tried kiting it to daytime once and it was most certainly the same strength level after day broke. I'd estimate about a 10 level difference or so (just general power level of mob) from night to day, and if it strips your buffs then def. downs you this fight gets dangerous for most jobs.

Can anyone confirm on deny the hidden +emnity of earring I've heard about?

edit: said I got cloak and mask during both day and night >.>

This was all done as a Lv. 65 DRK.

I was supposed to be on a Riverne A01 run yesterday, but after farming Giant Scales, one of our members never showed up. So, we decided to scrap the run and several of the members warped home and I was about to log at the spacial displacement.

Just after I typed /logout, one of the members said that Upyri was there. I quickly checked the time and told him to claim it and I was on my way. After a series of misfortunes (Including the fact that I only had lv. 40 gear), I had gotten the bat down to 2/3 before dying and my partner finished off a gigantobuggard that aggroed him while resting with less than 100 hp. Bat went unclaimed and someone else claimed and killed.

Well, I took my ToD, grabbed my lv. 65 gear, my lv. 64 PLD friend and headed out.

I missed the first 2/3 of the spawn window, but I camped it for 1 1/2 hours. Almost 24 hours from the last death, he popped again. We waitd for several minutes to let it turn to day. We rushed in a little too fast though. No buffs and no real healer, though, I had asked the LS for help for about 10 minutes. Got it to around half HP, PLD couldn't pull it off me. Even invincible didn't pull it. I was fumbling with buttons, couldn't get blood weapon off and I died with 100 tp. My PLD friend held out for a bit until it drained all his MP with a move called Marrow Drain.

After we died, a SMN claimed and then killed with ease. He got the cloak and mask apparently. And even though he subbed WHM, he didn't even offer to raise me. *Sigh* Well, I got ToD again, perhaps tomorrow I will have a couple more people to come with me.

BTW, he does hit pretty hard, or it seems like it. He has an ability that drops defense called Subsonic. He was hitting me for over 100 a shot, and near 250 on crits. Also it seems that he has decent defense. I used Guillotine on him once. 5 hits connected (Double attack fired on it) and he only took 680ish damage.


Went back to camp last night. This time I took my 64 PLD friend and a 70 WAR with me. The WAR and I built up 300 TP before hand. Bat spawned around 2:00 game time, just like it had the night berore. Spawn was around 23:45 hours after last death, just like the night before. I summoned my NPC, we waited for 6:00 game time, then went to town on him. Push over with the 3 of us plus my NPC. Dropped Cloak and Boots. I am now one happy DRK!

This thing is HARD at night. I was camping the Bravo's Subligar NM and the server had just come back up after maintenance, so I went to check on the bat. Sure enough he was up... RNG/THF getting hit for 130+, couldn't stick sleep or bloody bolts on him. I wound up shadowbinding and fleeing for my life. x.x RNG/NIN's soloability of this thing is questionable.

Well, I was clearing former hate & decided to pop over to his spawn after noticing a bunch of people in the area. I was on my 75THF - I hadn't read much on him & assumed he only popped at night- so was unaware he was weaker during the day. After my first dancing edge did very low damage I started to wonder how tough he was- but he wasn't hitting me at all with regular attacks....

Then he started draining me... a lot. He'd strip my shadows almost constantly, and once my hp was about 50%, i popped an Au lait, which he promptly stripped off as well. I couldn't sleep or drain him with bolts (think blind might have stuck once- not sure)...

I thought I was going down- only enough hp for one more drain at most... but I made it with 202 hp. Next time, ill kite him around til the sun comes up :D


End 202hp, Cloak, boots

well I(68drg/sam) was walking around the dunes when one of LS members said Upyri's up i need help. Since i was in the dunes i had decided to go. So im walking and when i zone into Misareaux, hes dead......he was a 70 PLD and he tried to fight it but got it to 1/4 HP...once i reached the spawn point I say the bat, I charged up TP with meditate and I did it when i entered the zone(its a habit).

So i start the fight when a penta thrust and was hitting for 100ish, he was hitting me for 50ish around there. used my jumps and in no time he was at half health.

the fight kept going on, and i finshed it with a penta defeating the bat and dropping the cloak and mask. I had about 400 HP left from 1200. Wasnt that tough, i had expected it to be harder -_-

My g/f and I killed this thing at night, 69 Mnk/Sam and me, 69 Rdm/Blm. She opened with her 2 hour, I followed with Chainspell and about 8 Aero3's for 420~ each. Made short work of it Smiley: snore even during the night.

I had a feeling that the Earring drop might be more frequent if you kill it during night time (it would be just like SE to do that) but only got a cloak and boot drop.

Has anyone gotten the Earring to drop during the day?

62Bst. I camped this guy yesterday. He spawned during the day. CC and I took him down fast. Today, he spawned at 0300. I decided to claim him since there was a 74Thf nearby. She didn't have Wide Scan, so I was able to kite him to the other side of the area. He was obviously very strong because he spawned at night. I figured that he would go back to being weak once daylight hit. When 0600 came around, he lost a little strength, but he was still strong enough to take 4 CCs and many Bigclaws and Makaras over 35 minutes. So, I'm thinking that this guy has two level ranges dependent upon when he spawns rather than when he is claimed.

Also: When he gets to a certain HP, he using Blood Drain twice back to back as his TP attack. They drain 133 each. So, once I got him down and realized he was never going to die, I had to throw caution to the wind and help out that last CC to take him down.
