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

Solo'ed him today as a 24RDM/12THF, used 2 hour, binded it, and just spammed fire. Then hit him twice. dead.
Tough piece of gunk.

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.

Think I could take him as a 30WAR/15MNK with gimpy gear, if I 2hr and use fish?

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!

Went 1/4, I just logged in every 90 minutes and he'd pop soon afterwards. No one else was camping it. One of the most relaxing NM camping I've ever done, lol.

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!


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.
