Medusa Picture

Well, well... Look Look at all these adorable two-legs... Come, dance with me mortals!

Will resist all damage until other NMs are defeated. May use Eagle Eye Shot.

Rumored to be weak to Stone.

The items only drop when she's in Arrapago Reef. if you defeat her in Bhaflau Thickets she doesn't drop anything, it just ends besieged.

She is assisted by 4 Lamia Exon. Two are Black mages and two are melee.

You can easily handle all four with one melee/ninja and a White mage, on the Black mage Lamia, you can substitute the White mage with a Red mage.

Just have those 8 in a separate alliance while you have another take out Medusa

She drops:
* Medusa's Armlet
* Mercenary's dastanas

Mercenary's Dastanas RareExclusive
[Hands] All Races
DEF: 24
Ranged Accuracy +8
Besieged: Increases "Rapid Shot" activation rate
Lv. 70 WAR / RDM / PLD / DRK / BST / RNG /
SAM / DRG / BLU
if anyone knows anything about Medusa's Armlet post it lol, is it just for keepsake? it like has NO purpose O_o

I have a love/hate relationship w/ medusa.
As a 75 brd (since 65 really >.>;) I have been the target of EES everytime I've seen her >.<. Last night she hit me with a WS I hadn't seen before while skilling up stringed instrument and attempting to kite her (from 190-219 skill ftw).
Calcifying shot. Hit me for 800+ through stoneskin and petrified me for 3-5 minutes.
Has anyone else gotten hit by this? Was I just not getting hit w/ this in the past?

Oh yeah, resisting charm in besieged is a VERY bad thing.
71 THF with 236 evasion at the time(yea, its pretty bad) for some reason turned from charmga. Lets just say I got 1.4 levels on my evasion skill in about 2 seconds time.

What is the best type of magic to take out this besieged nm? I was told to use DoT but with capped enfeebling and elemental magic as a rdm62/blm31 Drown, Rasp, Frost etc would not stick only dia II and bio II even with this on her the whole time besieged was going on she still had 2/3 health. it was funny to see a blm75 elemental seal then cast Freeze II and do 27 dmg. I dont know if the other nm's were dead or not.

She also smacked me up pretty good with one hit lol went through stoneskin (198 enhancing magic skill) phalanx protect etc and still didover 1k dmg lol

On Lakshmi we are currently taking on lvl 6 undead swarm etc, oh and i heard that lakshmi was the last server to remain undefeated in besieged, i dont know if that is still true, I hope so ^^

When Medusa first showed up about a month ago, alot of us spent more time snapping pictures than we did actually fighting her. One move she used in particular after Rising Swell (the one that removes everyone's equipment) was a devastating AoE that hit everyone for roughly 1500-2000 dmg. Needless to say the photographers failed to survive the slaughter. Also had a tendency to one shot a buffed 75 by just hitting them. We ended up winning through the defeat of the other NMs, but it was hard to forget said incident.

Thing is... she's yet to repeat this. Her first appearance was the only one that marked complete domination of everyone around her. She still holds the traits of any Lamia NM (Rising Swell, Charmga), along with a ridiculous Eagle Eye Shot. But this mysterious 'uber move of death' has all but disappeared. Perhaps overkill? Sympathy from the devil? Or some frustrated moderator who wanted to watch 100 high levels die in some freak genocidal attack?

I'm still having fun.

Aegis relation?

The Aegis, the relic shield, is created of the head of Medusa when Perseus gives it to Athena as thanks for helping him best the demonic beast. It is then used as the symbolic shield of Athena (and several gilbuyingimeanhardworking paladins). If you look closely, the shield is shining gold, with a head in the center and several serpent-like figures branching off of it that make up the body of the shield. Hopefully, when we get more information, there will be a link between the two?... I doubt it would be anything directly related to the Relic Shield itself, but... I dunno.

Like most of the Main NM's from besieged, Medusa can't be killed unless the other NM's are killed first. Don't know their names or anything, but thats probably why u probably did 0 dmg. (well, that and ur 57) I remember a Beseiged that lasted more than 2 hours on Fenrir one nite because nobody could kill her. i ended up hiding in the moat near the exit to the woodlands. Sat there and woke up lvl 75 =P.
