This thing is demonic. Its AOE will tear you in two.
Magic ineffective?

During Besieged the other day, I made my way to the parade grounds and started meleeing this in hopes of raising my staff skill. Well, that's a really bad idea. His AoE, as others have said, has a massive range and, given his level, does a lot more damage.

After a few close calls I decided to step back and do my job as BLM. Knowing that scorpions are weak to ice, I cast Blizzard IV on it. I was shocked to see that it RECOVERED 1000hp when I cast. I scrolled back in my log and saw that my staff was having similar problems- my weak little hits were doing 10-12, but the additional effect ( using Jupiter's Staff, so lightning elemental damage ) was giving him 25-30hp back. So, more or less, there was no reason for me to even try to fight this. I suppose I could have poked him repeatedly with my dagger for 0, but I have better things to do with my time. I left and found something else to whack.

Has anyone else noticed this? The troll NM Varpurlur the Whatever ( can't remember ) is the exact same way. Hit him with Thunder IV and he recovered 1100. I felt like a moron, lol.

A week ago he stuck around in Al Zhabi with his baby mobs for a few minutes after Besieged was over. It was fairly amusing, watching it run around while people tried to figure out what the **** it was still doing here after besiged was over.

A few humorous shouts rang out and people converged on it, and it disappeared probably no more than 3 or 4 minutes later. Still a funny glitch.

This thing is THE most powerful scorp besides King Vinegaroon; has around 3-4 times the amount of HP that Serket has, an amazingly high DEF and ATK along with his AoE moves hitting for a very large radius.
