This hoe is sucha wimp. I've Duoed and Triod this wyvern quite a few time in Limbus with my manaburn static. It can be done! It has been done! And it will be done many more times! ^ ^

He drops an Item box every time, and usually has anywhere from 5-9 coins and can drop 0-2 upgrade items. Sometimes he's worth the time to kill, other times he's not... just depends on how well your time is going through limbus. Situation dictates.

Get bent.
He does hit hard.

As others said, he hits for alot and is resistant to physical damage. NINs and WARs take around 700damage from him on each hit, so mistakes in this fight could mean your life. There are rumors that each Wyvern killed around him = weaker NM, but once again, it's only a rumor.

I have killed this guy 5 times now and he never, ever, ever drops even dragon scales! He has never droped a coin. No materials. No nothing. Not even a crystal.

There is zero reason to kill this NM unless you just want to or unless by beating him you spawn an item chest but I have never seen one spawn. you do not need to kill it to beat the board. Only need to kill the KB varient on the last floor.

For those that are interested, he is basicly a beefed up Fafhog with a fraction of the HP. He is extreamly melee strong and hits abouve 50 from a 2 handed weapon user are rare.

Fight the same way you would any other wyrm. On his feet, have melee sc and blms burst. He is more like Fafhog then Jormy and Tioamat so blm are the main dd.

Not sure if it spike flails but we never tempted fate with it.

Relativly easy to beat but he is more resistant then Fafnir atleast (never fought nidhog)and you will wiff alot as a melee. The upside is he has hardly any HP at all.

Pointless Wyrm....

Pointless? Are you stupid.... He makes the item chest pop. So unless you're just doing limbus for ***** and giggles, then this NM is kinda one of the main mobs in the area...

This is from Apollyon North West (4th Floor).

Dropped around 8 ancient coins, but only one (NIN) upgrade item for us.

Fight was short and he's very easy to kill too.

Fought this thing last week, its the second of the bosses in the three kings path of apollyon. Meleed a pld for 500 per hit who takes 350 from vrtra, and when one of the mages with no experience with wyrms nuked from behind it spikeflailed for 2200. Aggro range isnt very far, but seems to link wierdly with the smaller wyvern mobs in the area. After killing us a wyvern with no aggro ran around mopping up people who reraised.. kinda like cyno didnt want to bother doing it herself.

Looks like Limbus, so I'm assuming this also drops Ancient Beastcoins.

...Oh by the way, check out the PLD in god armor in the corner of the screenshot. lawl. It HAS to be Limbus.
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.
