Kirata Picture

Contents [hide]

General Information

    • Though there are two possible Tundra Tigers that can appear in the area, one of these tigers shares a spawn with one of the Living Statues in the tower. The placeholder for Kirata is the tiger that doesn't share the spawn.

Kirata's Spawn Location
Kirata's Spawn Location

  • Respawn time is approximately one to four hours after its last Time of Death.

  • Kirata's melee attacks have an additional Wind based magic damage that cannot be dispelled.

Kirata Special Attacks

  • Claw Cyclone: Frontal cone AoE physical damage.

  • Razor Fang: Single target physical damage.

  • Roar: AoE Paralysis effect.

Historical Information

In Hindu mythology, Kirata was one of the avatars of the god Shiva (see Shiva Prime) that took the form of a black skinned man wearing a black tiger skin with laurels on his head. Armed with a bow and a quiver of arrows, Kirata was used whenever Shiva needed to test the worthiness of others.

Boreas Cesti

15 posts
collected 24 black tiger fangs,half a stack of mercury,8 doll shard and 15 black tiger hides before this NM popped. went 1/1 and got the cesti.

Not heavily camped on remora. But the 4 hours of farming can be a burn.

Boreas Cesti Comments.

Good Side..
Proc rates for enaero are 95% and averaging 5-7 extra damage per hit.

Bad Side
Monk/Dancer - Drain Samba does not activate with these equipped.

However - the extra damage makes these claws a solid winner. Makes solo killing mobs in rollenberry at lvl 30-35 more bareable.

For a monk 30-35 these claws are a nice option. worth farming with a higher lvl job.

I'm not sure if these claws beat impact knuckles or other options that allow drain samba.. but did notice some substantial gains in guard and other skills in rollenberry after equipping and playing with Boreas Cesti awhile.

you'll need to be more active with Curing Waltz without Drain Samba.. which means less weapons strikes.. but more damage per hit is going to probably outweigh this.

maddddddddddddd nice..
i am one of those unlucky people.. but i came here *had a hard time finding at first* on my 75 PLD.. killed the 2 statues that were up and the tiger that would spawn.. took only about 2 spawns *15 minutes total* and kirata spawned.. i was kind of taken back with how much HP she had but obviously it wasnt a big deal.. anyway.. 1/1 WOOT.. and my reason for posting is that i saw someones theory about the tiger that is only a tiger is the PH.. and the living statue AND the one that alternates between the statue and the tiger are not PHs. In a scientific way i can confirm this as i can not prove it wrong, because when my Kirata popped, I checked inside the tower and there were 2 statues up- meaning the statue and statue/tiger were up.. leaving only the pure tiger as the possible PH in my case.

sorry if this is hard to understand, since there is a spawn that can be a tiger OR a statue >.<
anyway good luck!
Kirata's PH

Ok, so I just killed this NM and in my opinion the PH is the Tiger that does not share the spawn with the doll. I was killing all 3 in the same order each time they popped and while i killing the tiger that shares its spawn with the living doll Kirata popped (i was watching WideScan). No one else was around, so I wasnt' worried about it, finished the tiger, went over and smoked Kirata, and got the drop. Like I said it popped from the tiger that does not share its slot with the Living Doll, but I went 1/1 so its' not like I can guarantee something from a one time experience.

Easiest way to camp this is to kill the 2 tigers roaming around the tower, if you get there and there's only 1 tiger and 2 statues, then kill all 3 until they pop as 2 tigers and 1 statue. Keep that 1 statue targeted before the repops as he is not the PH and does not need to be killed. I overall spent 24 hours camping Kitara
1/9 on the drop as SAM/THF. My NPC Liabelle got the killing blow and my H2H droped. Good luck. Now i'm off to camp retaliators.

BTW: The repops are on a 5 minute timer, or 2 hours game time, whichever you prefer to use.

Against my better judgement when using placeholder strategies, I just kept slaughtering everything until Kirata popped. If it didn't pop for an hour or so, I'd go check on Nue. Ended up going 1/3 on Kirata.

Finally got this ******* to drop this morning.


I believe his PH is the tiger that shares spawn with the statue. Reason being, I left one statue up, killed 2 tigers, killed the new statue that popped and the tiger outside.
Kirata popped and while fighting him another Thundra Tiger popped, all while there was still a statue inside.

meh, still I could be wrong, but hope that helps.

so a few posts say (H-10)

well atm there's 2 tigers and 1 statue walkin around

using the 2 tigers as pets to kill the statues, the statue kills them in a few hits, I take statue out in fewer hits.

gonna see how long it'll take me to get this item... will have a few EDITS here in the coming days depending on how the camping goes

EDIT #1 first day of camping:
killing the tigers and statues in (H-10)
have 1 other person campin too, spazzes out when I move outta his view
rather amusing, been 2 hours now...

EDIT #2 while camping:
the guy camping with me was JP
been here for 2hr+ BEFORE I logged in, so in the 4hrs he was here no Pop
about 30 minutes after the 4hr mark for him (2hr for me) he left
said that "NM = 2hr pop No pop 4hr ; ;"
it's going on 5 hrs killing tigers and statues
only to find that if 2 statues up 1 tiger pops
if 1 statue up 2 tiger pops, or the 2nd statue pops
think it would be better to just kill the tigers
and ignore the statues... Besiege starts soon...
will try back tomorrow

EDIT #3 after maintance:
killed 2 statues and 1 tiger, Kirata pops, but doesn't drop...

The tiger that always spawns outside the tower has to be the PH. While I was fighting Kirata both statues were spawned inside the tower. This makes me beleive the tiger outside is the PH and the one that switches between tiger and statue is just some weird thing.

Yay! Finally got this beautiful cesti tonight 1/2. First spawn only took 3 kills, 2 tigers and 1 doll before he spawned. Took him down as a 54BLM/WHM - used the very nice bind / sleep / rest / nuke pattern. Takes about 5 mins to drop him, but worth it as it was my top job. Rudely he only gave me a black fang for my troubles. Spent the next 2 hr 10 mins or so killing the placeholder tigers and dolls, finally he popped, dragged him from gobbie town and dropped him using sleep nuke combo again. Got my cestis! Now to garlaige to test them! TARU MONK POWER :P

Started camping Kirata sunday night after reading about the cesti (Mnk is 32). Took my 52 Blu with nin sub, killed about 3 tigers and it spawned. Went in and started out well, Kirata missed alot til about half health, then didnt miss, ate through shadows and killed me off pretty quick. Hp'd and switched to whm sub. Still there when I got back, buffed with blink, metallic body, cocoon, baraera, protect, refueling, and shell. Rested MP and went into attack, missed til about half health then started hitting. Would have been killed off again, but being able to stun with Head ****, use Divine Seal and a Cure III swung the fight in my favor, no drop though. Killed only tigers for about an hour and a half and it spawned again, repeated the same steps, no drop again and I called it a night.

Monday night logged on and it was there, killed it again with no drop. Killed only tigers for almost 2 hours before pop. Killed again and got my cesti, cant wait to get into a pt and try them out.
Easy kill but...

I camped Kirata last night after 30 min first pop but no drop but got a blk tiger fang and tiger hide. Took an hour break to watch Heroes, came back and popped again after 30 min of killing everything in sight and no drops at all. Started killing everything in sight again for the next maybe hour and half and still no pop. Think a 75 thf that was running through may have gotten it while I was fighting statues but not sure. Will try my luck again tonight hope I get it soon!

Edit: Tried again last night and after 30 min of killing just tigers and statues Kirata popped in the front to the left of tower. Quick kill and it dropped only the Cesti! /cheer /joy! Now all I have to do is level mnk >.> Went back to my original purpose of being there. Fishing for Emperor Fish for the contest, caught 19, turned the lowest in right before contect ended, we'll see if I get another neat item from last nights efforts. Thank you all for the information and good luck to those hunting for it!

I have found it easier to just pull the tigers to the statue in the Tower and kill the 3 together. I am currently 0/3 on him today, and the first time i killed him with SS and blink up so i was never hit. The second and third time i just let him swing at me until he finally hit me a couple times and then nuked him down. So the rumor that he will drop the cesti whenever his additional effect wind damage hits you isn't true. Kirata has been spawning between an hour and 2.5 hours. Happy hunting!

For those who still need to camp him. . .first forget almost everything ppl here said about PH's. . .

When u reach the tower in that place u will find 1 Tiger outside and 1 Statue inside the tower. And the placeholder. The ph will randomly spawn as a statue inside the tower or tiger outside. If u have widescan, then the ph is the 2nd Tiger / statue in the list.

Got my Monk to 28 last night so thought I'd camp for these.
So I went as my RDM/BLM.
He popped while I was fighting one of the dolls inside the tower.
Fortunatly noone else was camping at the time otherwise he would have been claimed.
I was there for about an hour and 1/2 before he appeared.
Got the Cesti's and 2x Fangs.

Finished up Dynamis Xarc, so I decided to try this guy and hit the upper part of eldieme looking for a coffer.

Took about 20 minutes to get him to pop. He actually popped off to my side while I was fighting a gob and walked right up to me...

Take a number!

Got the Boreas Cesti which I have no real use for at all @.@. Didn't even find my coffer.

I camped him for awhile for my Lv30 mnk. I'm 1/3 and the only time he dropped the item, was when he did added damage (he was wearing the cesti?)

If that's how it works for him, TH wouldn't help, he spawns with the cesti, or he doesn't.

Can anyone confirm or correct this?

* * * The Notorious Monster Kirata * * *

I've put together alittle guide to camping this NM, anything you need to know should be in here...

-Area: (H-10) Wide open area with the tower in the middle.
-Within (H-10) it will be along the east side of the grid. Pops behind tower, infront, off to side; In other words everywhere in that circular area around tower. (Note: do not bother killing any Trundra Tigers in any of the pathways...)
-When: Simply, anytime. More common then not nighttime, but has popped in daytime.
-ToD: Avg. 1.25hours till repop

-Foes: Trundra Tiger, Living Statue
-Order: There will be a combination of 3total of these mobs up at any giving time. This being said, keep an eye out for...
1xTundra Tiger
2xLiving Statue
2xTundra Tiger
1xLiving Statue
(Note: 1xTiger is more common)
-Widescan: There has been no destinct place for Kirata or Tundra's to pop on widescan, I have seen Kirata at both Top/Middle/Bottom of widescan. Living Statues are towards the bottom.

-How: Kirata is a very easy fight, Recommend 55+ generally speaking. As for myself I'm 66Ninja(WELL HOLD ON!) I have engaged Kirata with out even using shadows, and walked away. He is nothing to hard, and none of his weaponskills seem to be that troublesome. Take good care when in area, but this NM isn't a big challenge.

-0/4 1:Nothing(TH2) 2:Fang 3:Nothing 4:Fang

This is all i have on this NM at the moment and I hope it is helpful. Some of the stuff i have said may have already been covered, but I would just like to help those out who want the whole kit and kabutal in one post.^^ Please feel free to correct me on many mistakes. This NM is one of the most borring ones to date, none the less, I want the Cesti's. Good luck! Happy O.o Hunting

I got this guy as a 60BRD/30WHM. Didn't go with THF for Treasure Hunter as I was more worried about my safety than getting the drop for my first time, and I wanted Cure and Stoneskin. Took me about 45 minutes killing tigers and dolls till Kirata popped. Fight was very long and very ugly. It started off with him missing me a lot, but then, at about 1/2 HP, he suddenly couldn't miss me. The additional effect from his hits was doing anywhere from 2-33 per hit. Really adds up, especially since it kicks in every hit. Someone else said it kicks in occassionally; maybe they changed things, but the additional effect was hitting me every time.

I killed him, finally, with 296 HP left. May sound like a lot, but I started with over 1000 and my HP was rapidly depleting by the end. It's doable, but very tough.

Anyway, I got the Cestis on the first kill, luckily.

I have killed this thing... So many times now, it's getting ridiculous. Count has to be around 10 or something.
Had TH for a few of the fights, TH2 for most, and TH3 once. This stupid tiger will just not drop.
Killed twice today alone... Might go back tonight and try once more, but I don't know anymore. ;.; I just want my Monk to have a nice toy.

All you people who go 1/1 on this thing, I hate you! XD

Edit ~ I GOT THEM!!!!! My first time completely solo, too. x.x; Long fight, but was never in any danger. Kept them weakened, poisoned, and blinded with bolts/kurayami. Going by previous experience, I got them near death, hit them with poison, turned, and let it kill them. The end result... 30 EXP and the cesti! :D This was as a level 53 Thief.

On a semi-related note... Thief's {Hide} works against Kirata, but not against any of the other tigers in the area. o.O First time I tried soloing it today, a Goblin aggroed me, so it was a last resort... And I lost BOTH of their attention. I was able to then engage Kirata again after Goblin vanished. Sadly, I was weakened after the team-up on me, and ended up letting someone help me. x.x;

well ive been camping this guy cuase im gonna lvl my monk and i beleive there is only one placeholder. There is one tiger that always spawns in 2hr game time. This is your man. There is another that rotates w/ tiger and Statue but dont worry about it. I'm O/4 on this bad boy but he has always spawned in the time place of the tiger. So there you go. Hopefully he drops next time -.-

I've been leveling mnk a bit and saw that this nm drops these cesti. I had seen the in action before and though they'd be a nice addition. I tele'd and went to Beaucidine to find no one camping this guy [not much of a surprise]. I killed all the tigers I saw and both dolls in the tower. I ran off to the pond to the west and killed some gigas. When I came back Kirata had spawned. I solo'd him as Thf63/Nin31 with ease. I got lazy and didnt keep up utsusemi, so he hit me a few times, didn't have much better acc than the other tigers in the zone. Took him down in about two min with cesti drop. The whole venture was about fifteen minutes. A nice field trip.

Camping him for my 30MNK.

I camped him for 2 hours last night, killing both Tundra Tigers. Sometimes one would take a really long time to pop and I'd think it was the NM getting ready to pop, but it was a false alarm.

I camped him again this morning for 1 hour, killing not only both Tundra Tigers but also both Living Statues inside the tower. I don't think the two statues is a freak occurrencel; I regularly saw both pop.

In any case, this caused the tigers to repop much more quickly and Kirata popped after about an hour. 0/1, but no big deal. Phalanx weeded out all but a couple points of damage, which Stoneskin soaked up. My parser shows I dealt 3132 in damage to him, so I'd guess he has as little as 3100HP.

The tower at H-10.
If you only see 1 tiger around, kill those dolls inside tower!!!!!

I was stupid and killed all tigers around for several hours, got 9 tiger hides and 20 tiger fangs, till I found that I have to kill those dolls too. one of the two dolls is exchangeable with tigers.

After I found it on another discuss thread I log in and kill the dolls, 2 tigers spawned, killed them, Kirata spawned.

I was passing through Beaucidine a couple months ago and saw this NM just standing there on wide scan, killed him and didnt get anything special, looked up what he was and remembered him for when i would level MNK. My MNK is lvl 21 now so i decided to get some Cesti.

I went as lvl 67BST/THF using crabfamaliar, killed off 5 rounds of tigers and dolls. I would kill both tigers and then a doll, the time before he spawned a doll spawned first.. then only one tiger spawned, then another doll spawned(usually there was only one doll), i killed them all and the next time he spawned, killed him and got the drop.

Spawn time on tigers and dolls is 6 mins from my experience.

Got this drop 1/1 Windsday, First Quarter Moon, Dark weather. Spawned both times ive seen just to the East of the tower. Very easy fight solo for anyone 60 and above bar WHM. Respawn time for me was 2hr 36min. Had him down to about 40% as my Whm and ran out of MP, tho I didn't have any juice with me. Came back with 74 PLD and stomped him. Had some troubles determining which was the placeholder. Would have spawn times of regular tigers from 5-10 minutes, so a little bit unsure in that department. But, only 1 other came to camp and she left after seeing Knight and I. Happy Hunting!

ive gone 0/3 on this thing. pop time is like 1-3 hours. when you kill his placeholders (which are the TWO tigers at the tower try and kill at the same time as they have a set repop.

when you finally kill them at the same time and only ONE of the two tigers pops thats a sign that the next pop on the other tiger is gonna be the NM.

the wait time here is 3 mins to 25. (from what ive observed.

No weather conditions for this NM.

Southern most tower near zone to batalia downs.

hope that helps everyone ^^

I got these on my second pop of Kirata. They are great. Even better, since my high lvl sum friend was killing him for me, my mnk got to go nuts and got to smack around the tigers in the back and 2hr kirata w/ hypno staff for about 15-20 lvls of staff skill. It rocked.

Either way, best luck to all of you. Kirata spawned again roughly between 1.5hr and 2hr after the first death.

Geez, I'm 0/6 on this guy. I've been putting off taking my MNK beyond 30 until I get those cesti. Hope he gives me some soon.

Just ran out to try and and catch this guy after the maintenance reset, only had to kill one set of placeholders and he popped. Killed him as 60thf, he dropped the cesti and a black tiger fang, so he also drops fangs.

Thing thing was incredibly easy. As a 60SMN/WHM after killing several tigers carby was down to about 40% HP when I spotted him. Had to recast carby, but then it did maybe another 10% of his HP before it died.

1/1 on cesti
monk tank other then thf/nin

well this is what was with us 75Pld/37war 50thf/??nin and 50mnk/25sam(me). we were waiting waiting 4 a while then the pld said brb bout minute later the thf pull Kirata so I was going nuts. so b4 it got ther i used focus counterstance and dodge. It hit for a good amount per hit and we were both around half so to save my bacon i 2 houred i got in 3 Raging Fists b4 it died. i had only 26/1045 life left and as it died the pld said back >.> the thf got last hit but no drop.
so while we waited i got the first part of my af boots quest done in Feiyin so when we came back we waited bout an other hour or so and it spawned (pld was there now)and we got drop sadly it was for the thf's second file and i couldent get it
id say this thing is around 50-55
btw this is my first post yay say how u liked it
