who actually would want the title "BeakBender"?
I would much rather have "Silencer of the Lambs"

Simply put, was lurking around the center chamber of GC for Old Two-Wings but found Sammy spawned instead. Was on RDM due to an earlier exp group and me being lazy to not change back to DRK, but eh~

15 mins of poking with Sword later, Sam drops, got Skin & Spear.

Decided to try him
# Dec 02 2006 at 10:01 PM Rating: Decent
My LS was heading downstairs in Garlaige to get Bomb coal for one of our ls Paladins when we ran by this guy. we decided to stop and get some info on him since none of us had ever seen him before.
I get a buddy of mine to check it out, says its lvl 54. So we decided to give it a shot.
Party consisted of PLD 53(me), WHM 52, WHM 50, PLD 50, and MNK 50.
I was kinda worried, but i never give up the chance to fight a NM. ^^. So we get started and it was looking pretty good, not a lot of issues besides his fast hitting. About when we got him to half life the other PLD gets aggroed by a set of bats and a weapon. >.<
It got pretty rough then, but after 2 Benedictions, a Hundred Fists, and an Invincible, we had come out on top ^^
We got the Wind spear, but we were just happy to have won.
Oh and Paralyze seemed to be our saving grace, whm kept sticking it to him, saved alot of healing ^^

Helping someone with G1, and this guy's in the way.
Taking care of aggro from bats, he just walked right by us. o.o
Went down, got the bomb coal, and headed back out... But this time, he wasn't letting us by without a fight. 75 WHM, 58 BLM, and moi, 61 MNK. This guy's a wuss... I could've probably soloed. Tossed {Hundred Fists} out, and he went down pretty quickly.

Drop? A cockatrice skin. Meh.
Still, getting a new title is fun. :D

Killed this earlier. I was helping a friend get the bomb coal for G1 and saw this guy just wondering around. I said his name and my Dragoon friend didn't say anything, he just ran up and starting attacking. I don't see how 3 Ancient Magic's couldn't have hurt it (from a previous post) because our Light Skillchain took a pretty big chunk of its HP. Took this down really quickly with no drop.

By the way I read that HNM's (Honorable Notorious Monsters) are monsters that give you titles. Not just their Lvl and STR determine that.

Soloed this as a BLM66 with no problems, just took my time, @15-20 minutes.

Sleep II + Bind + Blizzard III + Sleep II + Heal.

Didn't resist even once.

fought this thing while camping two-wings didn't even break a sweat. He's not an HNM just has a **** load of life.

And as for the any 75nin with good equip could solo serket i would love to see that given his AoE and poison shreds ninja's up bad even 75. No way in **** a 75nin can solo serket before he his his Berserk stage.

It is a HNM.
HNM just means Honorable Notorious Monster what means u get a Title from it, it doesnt really have to mean, that it is pretty tough.

Take Bloodtear. It has a ******** of HP, ok, it takes a while but its not really tough. This Skewer Sam is another example. We killed it last night, this thing couldnt even scratch my Stoneskin (71RDM) and even at ep mobs i have to recast Stoneskin at least once again.

I was doing G1 for someone in GC and I was running back to the first banishing gate... and BAM I run head first into this bad boy.

Extremely EASY fight as a 70THF/35NIN, the ******* never hit me once, and it took him forever to eat through Utsu.

Got his crappy spear and 2 of his skins... I didn't even want to fight him, I ran into him and had to kill him lol.
what do you guess about Skewer Sam?

"and has absurd HP so this must be a HNM."

yeah um... no. a HNM is a NM that cannot be solod by one person no matter what... let alone a lvl 60 mage like yourself.

Serket can and has been soloed by rdms. Are you telling me hes not a hnm? Actually, basicly anything 75/nin with good gear / skills can solo serket.

Soloed this as a 60BLM. Sleep, Flare, Sleep, Flare. Easy but very long fight. He has a RIDICULOUS amount of HP (took me more than 10 flares which hit for 1K damage). Oh and be careful on bat adds whilst you rest :) It gives you the title "Beak bender" and has absurd HP so this must be a HNM.
#Kaijubei, Posted: Mar 27 2005 at 6:25 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Um...you're just silly. Unless you were fighting a different version than what i fought as 74Sam/nin, this guys is a chump. Too easy to waste timing camping...i wouldn't even bother killing unless you get aggroed. Leave it to a BLM to blow things out of proportion.
RE: Skewer Sam
# Mar 28 2005 at 2:16 PM Rating: Good
Um... For the record he didn't say anything about camping this, so I don't see where you extrapolated "waste timing camping" from, by which I can only assume you meant "waste TIME camping." As far as I know the only instance in which you can "waste timing" would have something to do with making your car misfire, and even then you'd be wasting gas, not "timing." Please stfu and stop belittling other people. Rate down for you, since you don't understand that your level is nearly a full 25% higher than his making this fight a completely different ball game. He's level 60, and you're level 74, genius. Also, you have better armor, possibly dual wield unless you're using GK, massive TP gain potential and Utsusemi, while his armor is practically non-existant. Being tapped lightly by a cockatrice would put a large gaping wound in a little Tarutaru BLM. Congratulations however on being one of the most ignorant folk I've ever had the pleasure of reading a post from and for confirming once again that level does not equal wisdom.

Funny story actually (happened no more than a few minutes ago)

Me and my LS went to go fight Roc.

We enter Garliage and in the first room behind the first banishing gate, we see Old Two-eyes. Wow a NM already! We fought it quickly, but alas there was no drop.

We take a right and Skewer Sam was right there in our faces. We kill him, but no drop.

We make it out and Roc is sitting there just for us. We claim and after a long battle, we kill him. We got no good drops hahahah. Bad night.

Just solo'd this yesterday as a 60/30 rdm/nin, very hard fight, thought I would die a couple times. I was running around GC and saw it, claimed it and had no buffs up, so i had to waste alot of mp on haste, protect, stoneskin etc. It missed quite a bit luckily because when SS and Utsusemi both were off he hit for about 56-80 dmg,
I never got silenced or anything but did have to end up binding it, poison2, dia2, gravity, convert, then had to rest because convert wasnt up the next time I ran out of mp. Anyway eventualy killed him, got the title and a measly skin for my trouble, definatley not worth the 900gil the skin sells for ><. But can be solo'd at 60 with patience, and luck.

I was helping LS member kill the Guardian doll thingy for the rdm af hat and Sam popped, killed it in no time (full allience) and he dropped the spear which only goes for about 10k on my server. As soon as Sam fell, Old-Two Wings popped and we got claim, his life was short, but.... no drop. /cry Got the kool title though! /joy

Killed this today with 67drk/thf (me), 54 blm, 50 blm 52 rdm. Basically i tanked it, and they enfeebled and cured me. Its accuracy was pretty low, but was hitting me for about 50-80ish. Pretty easy overall, probably could duo with just another whm.

Only dropped a skin ; ;

fought this with a 75 rdm doing most of the work, although we had a 75 ninja tossing shuriken through the door, which had shut on him. the only useful information i have on the subject is that he grants the title "Beakbender" keep an eye out for old two-wings while you're in the area.

54 is kinda a underestimation. HE beat me.. i even threw 100 fists. It came down to a matter of who got the last punch in.. but.. alas it was him.

Picture this: Garliege Citadel.
Party consists of:

55 BLM
57 BLM
61 BLM
55 WHM

We walk by going for the coffer area when we see this big *** ****. Our plan was to all blast it with Ancient Magic at the same time.

Tilo casts Freeze.
Skewer Sam takes 856 damage.
Isisgirl casts Burst.
Skewer Sam takes 895 damage.
Bilorilo casts Burst.
Skewere Sam takes 879 damage.

AND HIS LIFE WAS BARELY GONE.

We decided to stay for the long haul though. The 61 BLM tanked while we healed. After a loooooooooong battle, we won. Now we have a POS Wind Spear to show for it. -_-;

Soloed this guy when i was just wandering around in Garlaige just messing around, now it says hes lvl 54, and it also says waraxe beak is lvl 55-56, which i kinda screwy since i beat this guy in about 10-15 min. easy at lvl 67 and waraxe beak takes me about 30-45 min. at lvl 73 and hes much tougher. Oh well this guy was a pushover with RDM's resist petrify ability and since i had echo drops. He actually dropped the spear which is crap but at least i got a new title. :P
