Historical Information

In Sumerian mythology, the Imdugud was a lion headed bird that acted as the doorkeeper to the god Enki's bath chambers. Later, Imdugud was adopted by the descendants of the Sumerians, the Bablylonians, and was renamed Anzu. Anzu was said to have a coat of feathers so dense that it was equal to the protection of eleven coats of mail, and had a beak strong and sharp enough to pierce almost anything.

My LS called me out a few nights ago to help with this nm.

At first they where Pld Whm Cor Sam. They said they tried twice but ended up wiping.

With 5 we just barely survived as Pld Whm Cor Sam and Bst (me). It was a great tough battle for us. Near the end the pld died. My fungar me and the sam switch tanked successfully for a few.

Ultimately the Whm also died. To keep the Sam around longer I Divine sealed Cured him and took a death. It was enough for the Sam to finish him off though. I think the sam and cor were in the deep red. I think it was the closest battle I have ever seen in the game.

Got the Pld and spiffy item though.

WIkiFFXI says you need a pt of 6 with a nin tank. I’m Happy to say that is not needed.
Killed with 4

We took Imdugud down with 4 yesterday. NIN/NIN/WHM/BLM. BLM came to sleep if problems arose but sleep was useless as it didnt stick so NIN/NIN/WHM could trio this easy. Im thinking a NIN could solo it or maybe 2 NINs duo it. We found this NM easy. We didnt struggle at all, the WHM just kept the NINs healed and it went smoothly. 2 Blink Tanks thrash this. Just good to have some healing along for the ride.

We happened upon him and thought "wth" lets try it. First time was for kicks and we quickly found out that he's not even just above the other Hippos there. We had Whm, Bst, War/Nin, Rdm, Blm. He killed the war and the blm and we had to portal to save from death. Second go around, we were more prepared and had a better strategy. But he was still too much for us at the time. It was a try out, but our setup wasn't geared for it. We're very sure if we had a nin we'd have walked off with it, but with only Ichi it was really hard. We ended up going to a Sleep II cycle that was looking like it would have worked, but he doesn't stay slept long enough to count and we ended up leaving. One thing though, portal warping does not fully reset hate, at least it didn't for the blm. THe blm cast AM and the Rdm SleepII'd. The blm was going to log to drop hate but portaled instead thinking it'd drop hate, but it didn't. Another AM later it was down to 2/3's health and that's when we figured he was too much for our setup. We slept him and left.
killed him!

My friends helped me kill Imdugud last night! The party set up was this:

1. Pld/War
2. Rdm/Blm
3. Smn/Whm
4. Brd/Whm
5. Thf/Nin
6. Drk/Thf

--We were at his camp for about 3-4 hours and he didn't spawn for forever and we were killing everything! I don't know why he didn't spawn in 2 hours.

Anyways he was tough but not too bad. My health went down quite a bit but I don't think any of us two hour'ed or anything!

But yeah, I just wanted to say don't give up even if it takes him way longer then 2 hours to spawn!

He ended up droping the knightly earring, yay!!

i don't know about drop rate on this guy, but i've killed this thing 3 times and got nothing/nada/zip/omfgbbq not even a tailfeather.

as to how hard this nm is. it's not a hard NM, he hits hard and has very high EVA, but misses afew times too. i've killed it with 3 ppl easy(just took a hella long time).

setup was 2ninja and 1whm. i'm sure rdm would be better tho.

Me and my CoP Static were farming Mistmelt Items and decided to look around after we got everyone in the PT one. Happened across this NM on one of the Eastern Islands. Pansy. Almost 100% sure it's a thief mob due to its godly evasion, but it was still cake. Nin/Blm/Blm/Smn/Rdm. I pulled it (as Nin) to the south most Displacement, where we found out the hard way that it triple attacks... Killed me, but mages zone through the displacement. Afterwards they came back, raised me, pulled again, and they would nuke, then jump through the displacement to reset hate while I held claim so it wouldnt regen. Didnt take long after we figured out that displacement hopping clears hate. Anyways, we killed it and got the earring. Since no one in the static was gonna lvl PLD anytime, (All Tarut but me, Mithra), we sold it. Goes for 1.5m on Shiva Server. And only 7 have ever been sold.

This guy can triple attack often. Kinda sucks to cast Ni then the shadow icon disappear right afterwards. Almost seems like hundred fists when he chains two triples in a row ; ; I've managed to kill him before in a nin, rng, rdm pt (me nin) but then got obliterated on a second try with same setup. Best bet is to wear as much evasion gear as possible, keep him blinded and paralyzed (life savers) and tank loosely to share hate with someone else ( rng/nin, or another nin ) and be ready with sleep when things get nasty. Sleep, sleep bolts, shadowbind all work on him. 2 earrings , 0 lance, 0 hippo feathers out of maybe 5-6 kills.

Hes been around since CoP Release, spawns on the island in Riverne Site B with only Hippogryphs. The lance dropped is Heavy Lance, I forget exact stats (lv. circa 60) The most important thing is that this lance deals blunt damage on regular attacks, therefore great on skellies. (WS are not affected however) Hes pretty tough, was hitting our ninja tank for 200-250 a hit when it connected, and hits add weight. Suggest a nin for tank, lowest amount of people we took it with was 4, and it was tough. 6 for safety recommended.

He also drops Knightly Earring.

He's on ~2 hour spawn I believe, yes, he is a lotto pop.

Killed it the other day, just got 4 Himmogryph feathers. I'm happy about that because i checked the AH on the feathers (because nobody wanted them so i got them all) and they sell for 600k-800k (on Midgardsormr) . Made my day when i found this out
