Khimaira Special Attacks

  • Tourbillion: Strong AoE physical damage with additional Knockback and Defense Down effects. (Circle of effect originates from mob)

    • Can be absorbed by three shadows

    • Will only perform this TP move if the wings are upright. Critical hits and/or large amounts of damage can cause the wings to "break", preventing Khimaira from further using Tourbillion.

  • Tenebrous Mist: AoE TP reset (Circle of effect originates from mob)

  • Fulmination: Strong AoE Thunder based magic damage with additional Paralysis and Stun effects (Circle of effect originates from mob)

    • Khimaira will only begin using this TP move when its HP has reached 35%.

Note: AoE abilities will hit -everyone- within range, regardless of whether you or your alliance have any hate on Khimaira or not.

Historical Background

The Chimaera (being attributed as being a female) was a monstrous creature in Greek Mythology, possessing the head, body, and legs of a lion (the head being capable of spouting fire), a snake for a tail, with a goat's head sprouting from her back. It was an offspring of the monster Echidna and the Titan Typhon, and whose siblings included Cerberus, the Lernaean Hydra, and the Nemean Lion.

The Chimaera met her death at the hands of the hero Bellerophon who, while riding the winged horse Pegasus, thrust a spear equipped with a lump of lead into the mouth of the lion head, where the intense flames within melted the lead, subsequently choking her to death.

If anyone is interested, Khimaira belongs to the Arcana class of mobs. Dark Knights and Arcana Killer will intimidate him.

Grants Title: Khimaira Cutter

The correct title granted is Khimaira Carver. I got my sword from Khim today. I'm lucky to have it seeing as we only recently started to camp it. Our first drop we got Club, our second gave us my sword.

In Allakhazam and in Ffxiclopedia, it says it pops on I-7, strange thing is that in the map the only thing in I-7 are trees (maybe a secret passage?).

Edit: {Found it!}

Yes it is a secret passage. Just hold right wall heading north and in H-7 you will find 2 secret paths to the right, the first one leads to the place where Khimaira pops, the second leads to some kind of tomb (maybe for a quest).

Be careful, all over the place you will find Soulflayers and Heraldic Imps, they can be evaded tho.

It's a chimera. It's a blend between a Behemoth, a scorpion, a bat, a ram, and some other thing with a lion-like mane if such a monster in the game exists.
