Weak vs. Physical
Goes as a blm or at least /blm. Few fire spells and its not a problem.
Also another reason to at least sub blm is for bind. Bind it, move out of melee range and use spells to kill it. You might have to bind it more then once.

The first time I had an encounter with this guy was when I was level 20 Whitemage level 10 Blackmage. He aggrod and so I ran like mad. I got right to the door to zone out into West Sarutabaruta and he killed me in one hit.

So then I decide to go back once I was level 25 Whitemage level 12 Blackmage. I prepared myself this time, because I knew it was going to get nasty. My Moogle had found an Elixir in a piece of furniture I had recently bought, so I took that long with me.

Anyways, I run down, Maltha is there. I throw up Stoneskin, Blink, Blaze Spikes, and Aquaveil. I don't even bother to melee him, because there really is no use. He's like trying to beat on Jello, your staff goes through, but doesn't inflict much damage. So I just start spamming Fire and Banish and ocassionaly I'd throw off Dia. Any who, Maltha, hits really fast and really hard. And I'm getting in the orange and starting to go down from there. I end up using Benediction, yet it still has about 25% health compared to my 30%. I manage to get my elixir off while taking a pretty good beating by Maltha. Probably had about 10hp left by that point. Thankfully, I'm good to go again. I just start spamming Fire, Banish, and Dia again. And sooner or later he died. And I got the drop which made me very happy. I think I had about 75hp left after everything. =3

I've helped a lot of people with this guy. Mainly just for revenge on that first death. All in all, I'm 7/10. I think this guy is about 50% drop. And if he doesn't drop the Tunica, he will either drop nothing at all, a vial of slime, water crystal, or a chest key.

Was going to farm onions but someone was farming already. BST/THF so I popped widescan and noticed this strange name in the list. Investigated, pulled out Carrie and CC killed him without taking a dent. :D

Got drop (full moon) 1/1

Went in as a 36 THF... Wasn't expecting much of a fight... Until I noticed my bloody bolts only absorbing a max of 18 at a time. >.<; He wasn't super accurate, but he didn't need to be with how quickly they attack.

Fortunately, with no one around (Until after I killed it... XD), I just ran around a corner and shot a few bolts at the local goblins. No problems after that.

1/1, thankfully.

Maybe @ 33 you could walk away ok but @ lvl30 you would need like 8-10 potions I think, 8-10 to be safe anyway.

WAR/MNK 34 Today!
Up to date equips & LVL30 Great Axe(capped).

Dropped a Squid Sushi to make sure my bolts procked(was worried I would have trouble with "her").
Acid Bolt hit then 2hr'd & 300tp Shield Break off the bat.
About half way in I started using Bloody Bolts for a minute but I shouldn't have bothered.

Sturmwind twice, once @ 200+tp & then again right at the end.
Good fight but walked away with more than 1/3hp.
NO XP @ lvl 34 so mob must be -LVL30??

If you go all the way here just so your RNG looks pimp in this piece I salute you & hope you get 1/1 like me!

WooT! I attacked a Blob in a room of 3 and this second one aggro'd and seemed to be hitting me whereas the other wasn't. I was like, "WTF? Why is he hitting me?". Then I noticed the name and thought sweet, an NM, but usually I don't get drops rarely even with TH2. This time, however, I got both the tunica and the slime oil. 1/1 Baby!

Good Luck!

Ok, I would like to inform you all, this NM is officially a weirdo. The way I assume you would have to fight it has nothing to do with the type of drop item LOL. This NM does attack just 1/10 a second slower than Hundred Fists, and that's not a 2HR ability. I highly suspect anyone under lvl 30 will have a very hard time fighting this, especially melee types.

On a good note, it took me longer to find the spawn area(no Map and local Bastokan) than it did to spawn it. Once inside the little F-5 room, I'm not even sure you have to kill the Blobs. I killed 1 set, ran around outside room for about 10mins 1 hitting everything in the area, I come back to find another 2 Blobs. I kill 1, and not 2 seconds afterwords, Maltha spawns(leads me to believe no placeholder). After popping it with a 300% TP Ground Strike, it still had HP left(resistance the melee). I'd say it has a solid 800-900HP.

Maltha-1/1 I got Trailer's Tunic, nice peice of gear for RNG until lvl 30 when Noct gear comes along. I hope this helps some.

BTW: For those of you who have no idea how to get to Inner Horutura Ruins, use the Tower on the right side of the West Sarutabaruta map. That's the easiest one to use.

i think you mean east sarutabaruta. lol. basically, in order to get there, find the tower toward the north eastern corner of the east sarutabaruta map. from there, keep to the right hand side until you get into a room with a magical gizmo in it. on the right hand side in this room is a cracked wall. enter it, and go as far south as you can. eventually you'll find a little room with goblin butchers and tinkerers. if you go to the right, ignoring the other cracked wall to the left, you'll find maltha hanging around usually 2 blobs. don't worry, the blobs don't link. they will aggro though, if you're too low of a level. and if you're that low of a level, you definitely shouldn't fight maltha. lol.

i'm a 38whm/19blm currently, and i've fought maltha twice so far. the first time i had no idea what it dropped or strong it was, and i was two levels lower than i am now, so it pretty much whooped me. lol. went online to see what it dropped and, lo and behold! it drops something i want for my rng. ^^ for any whms wanting this drop, i'd recommend going in with stoneskin, blink, and aquaveil before the fight. it attacks incredibly quickly, so it'll eat up your shadows first. and hopefully, if you're lucky, stoneskin will last the entire time he's attacking you, so your spells won't be interrupted. and if it doesn't last, well, then you have aquaveil to fall back on. lol. out of my 397 mp, i used roughly 190. started with banish II, which is the heaviest hitter. moved on to banish, then fire, then blizzard, then banish II again, and finished him off with water. lol.

i'm not sure how it is with melee, but i'm assuming it's fairly difficult considering his high defense. good luck on anyone who's going to camp maltha!! there's never anyone else there to kill it, so no competition. i'm 0/1 so far. going back to try it again later. :P see ya!

---------------edit---------------

sweet, just got it!! i'm 1/3 on maltha. just thought i'd tell you my rates, for anyone going out there and not subbing thf. :P later!!

0/3 on the Tunica so far. I subbed my gimp 15THF for TH1. Took a little over an hour between pop times. Logged out there so I'll be there when I get off work for another go.

Finally got the drop on the 7th kill, luckily nobody camps this so its easy to claim. Stingy little slime!

Was following a 50 WHM (figured they were going somplace good). When the WHM ran into a large room with 20+ lvl2 and lvl3 gobs I turned and ran like a little girl.

I explored around the rest of the dungeon a bit and who do I run into but Maltha and her 2 friends.

Im a RDM30/WHM15 so I buff up with Enfire/Blaze Spikes/Regen and have at her.

She got me down to about 40% Hp and 25% MP when i finaly killed her. My attack was 148 (Dhamal Pie) and 140 (Protect2/Shell) during the fight. Not too hard, figure she was prob a 24 to 27 level mob(about as bad as a Gob Leecher/Gambler in the dunes). Her double speed attack was nasty so I also used Gravity, Slow, Dia and Banish to my advantage.

Got the drop too. WHOOO HOOO

Most of you seem pretty sure that this drop is quite frequent i however seem to be troubled by a none drop syndrome; im using L37 WHM/BLM and want this drop for my L13 RNG/THF does anyone know of the drop rate as i have camped this for six hours straight taking it out three times with "NO" drop what so ever?

Just to note!

I'm (TP building to 300% on gobs once "Maltha" spawns Pulling with Fire then using Earth crusher with - Spiked club +1 this takes around 350 damage followed by Fire again then Banish II for a further 250 Damage combined and by this time and Malthas hit ratio: as you have the club attacks in between for around 30 - 70 critical, has built a further 100+ TP delivering a further 100 - 200 HP damage, I would presume the HP would be around the 1000 mark and L30 - 35 hope this helps.

Was bored so I went to his pop area and just as I arrived some guy kills it. Then I decided to just kill all the gobs in site for a while. After a little under two hours I drop back in the room and there he is. I killed him pretty quickly with my rdm and enfire and I actually get the drop and a slime oil. He hits quite frequently though,but at my lvl it was doing 1-2 damage. Maybe I will level RNG now, this is not a bad piece of armor.

While looking for Wendigos, I came upon a small area with two Blobs and Maltha. I checked it and that "Impossible to gauge!" message came up. I didn't know what level it was or what it dropped, but decided to kill it anyway. I buffed up, picked it from the other two mobs, and killed it with ease. It only casted Aspir once, and that was in the beginning. Needles to say, I didn't get anything. 0/1.

32BLM/16RDM
gimpish gear (Linen Robe, Windurstian Slops, Windurstian Staff)

Was wandering aroud, looked for the first chest spawn in Maltha's area, and bam, there she is. I never even knew an NM was in the Ruins.

Casted Blizzaga, Firaga, Aeroga, and Waterga and after all my MP was wasted, Maltha and her two cronies lay dead, and I have this nice and shiny Trailer's Tunica in my Mog House, taking up yet another inventory space -.-

I was running back through the Horutoto Ruins after helping someone get the sealed gate open and decided to see what was in this cubby hole. Maltha had spawned.

I took him down as a 32 WHM subbing 15 BLM. I read up on him that he's weak to fire, so in addition to my normal buffs, I made sure that I had cast Blaze Spikes.

Immediately the little ****** starts casting Aspir, so I hit him with Silence and Paralyze. He still attacks fairly constantly.

My Eremite's Wand seemed to help keep my spell interruption rate down. I kept hitting him with Fire spells and he came down no problem.

Unfortunately, all I got was 20 exp and a water crystal. =(

I fought him yesterday.

33 RDM / 15 THF (for TH)
No dedication
No buffs up
TaruTaru
Pretty decent lvl 30ish gear.

NM Used these abilites/spells:
Drain
Aspir
___ Sludge

Gained 33 EXP. And got the drop. Fight was pretty easy. Although,as abarhal said, it double attacks constantly and that makes spells get interrupted easily.

For mages, slimes arent that hard of a fight, slimes dont like being hit with damage spells. It is flanked by 2 regular slimes. I killed the first one, then fought Maltha. The other slime got very close to the fight but suprisingly didn't link. (Not saying they dont link, but the didnt with me.)

My 4th edit to the post, finally got the drop. 1/7.

I may be VERY unlucky, but still, i strongly recommend you to get a 45 + Thief with you. Window is fairly small, so you probably won't have problems with getting help.

Good Luck!!!

This blob is to easy. I'd estimate it at around 20-23 range. Though I was level 40WHM and soloed it no problem. Actaly I took it and the 2 other blobs on at the same time useing ga spells.

Its rapid attack rate is killer if your just going to cast spells on it. It tends to ruin casts.

This thing is almost never camped. I got it's drop the first try. All in all a nice piece. If you are a ranger or you know a ranger that will be hitting that level range invite them along. Its a bit tricky getting around all the gobs at that low of a level but its do-able. Expecaly if a level 40+ is willing the sweep the path. If a white mage can get there killing everything without useing any magic. Then kill the NM at the end and then get out all without resting anyone can do it.

I was leveling ranger, and being elvaan, was in desperate need for some agility pre noct and drone.So i went as my sam/rng into the ruins with the alla map, and widescanned him. Safe to say he was hitting faster than Hundred Fists, i was just glad i was 50+ at the time. Easily took him out with a few flaming arrows etc.

So he does drop, i am 1/1 on him, go figure....

Anyone in Midgardsormr needs help getting this, lemme know, it was fun as ****.

The amazing thing is his friends don't link and Divine Seal ONLY works on spells that have "Healing" skill on them. Thus, though it works on Raise and several other spells most people wouldn't think about, it doesn't work on Sleepga, I think you meant Elemental Seal, but if you're 45 come on >.>

ok, no wi am 0/6 on this guy, and that no one camps him, its easy to get kills.

Each time it was from 90-120mins for him to respawn, though i normally would kill it at lets say 4:00PM, then come back to the game at 6:00PM and he'd be there. Though if you go afk and get no aggro, its good to leave chat filters off so you can see if we was killed before you got back.

55BRD/25THF Resisted requim IV, though Elegy worked. With the spell slow and Elegy he becomes a normal speed attacking slime.

Used a Blood Rapier, and he ended up doubling my attack speed.

I'd also say hes around lv 20-30, he dont have much HP, but alot of defence, so any real DD class can kill him at lower levels easly.

First time I tried it i didn't have THF sub. Went back with THF sub and killed it 3 more times.

0/4

Four kills, and all I have to show for it is ONE slime oil.

/sigh

Killed him a few minutes ago (no drop) ; ; but adding up the dmg he took i estimate he's got about 900 hp. I'm 58RDM, by the way. I'm gonna go back there in a few hours and see if it doesn't drop for me this time =P

I sent my level 60 Mithra THF/NIN in to get this mob. Stood around for an hour and a half or so shooting Blobs with acid bolts for TP, and the Blobs have a respawn time of 8 minutes on the nose. As it has been reported here and elsewhere, Maltha is not a lottery pop. It's a random 90-120 minute spawn, as two Blobs spawned less than 30 seconds after I killed Maltha. Unfortunately I only got a Slim Oil (/chucked) on my first kill. I'm going to go to sleep with my mithra idling by where it spawns. Hopefully when I wake up it'll be there and I'll kill it, and w00tz get the drop? I hope so.

I took a wrong turn helping someone with Windurst Mission 2-1, and we ended up in that slime alcove. I paralyzed it and used Banish II twice to kill it. Got the tunica on the first try and gave it to the guy I was helping.

Took me seven kills to get this, but I finally did. IT has a spawn time from 90-120 mins. Most of the time, it's spawn time is pretty close to 105 mins (1hr and 45 mins).

Just camped the NM while bored today (and in the ruins for a quest) It was 1hr 42min between my pops and the tunica dropped on my 2nd kill.
