Historical Information

In Egyptian mythology, Serket was the goddess of scorpions, often taking the form of one, or when it suited her, the form of a woman with a scorpion on her head. She was able to dissipate the effects of any poison, not limited to snake bites and scorpion stings, and was capable of protecting her kinsmen from the venomous excretions of mythical creatures. As such, she was often called upon to guard the serpent god Apophis whenever the great beast was captured.

Was running around in Garliage as 75DRG/37WHM trying to kill Fallen Evacuee for Garliage key when I saw "Serket is bound" never saw Serket before so I decided I'd check him out and fall down the nearest hole. I saw him kill a nin who was fighting him, and then a smn try to hold it but die. I wasnt sure if I should try to solo it or not, since no one was camping or claiming him. Eventually, the nin was raised and recovered and went at it again with their rdm partnet, but it seemed like they were having some trouble so I asked them if they needed help, and would not lot on drops. They invited me and the fight was increadibly easy. After about 20-30 mins, he fell and dropped Serket Ring =D. I kept my word and congratulated the RDM on their new ring and took off feeling satisfied that the first time I ever saw Serket, I killed him. Happy with my new title.

While levelling in Garlaige Citadel with a friend on BST, this guy shows up on the WideScan. Of course we ran over to check it out and poke at it, but then we realized there was absolutely no one camping him!
So we continue to stare at him, him looking all buff and happily sitting there unclaimed, and we see 2 other BST the same level who had been off killing in another corner looking at it too. We both decided what the heck, let's toss some pets at it, so we teamed up and grabbed some pets.
With all the pet mobs surrounding the area it was very easy to toss one at him, let it die, and then grab another. We eliminated any problems of additional aggro, and we never really had hate on ourselves. This continued well until ~75% when some people started showing up. I'm not sure when it started, but at 50% we noticed we weren't getting any more pets respawning. That's when we noticed the others there had been killing our pets, hoping we'd wipe or lose claim. Eventually all our pets were killed and we had no replacements, and even though none of us died we lost claim scrambling to find a pet... The ones who killed our pets claimed it and most everyone died off the start but we were never able to recuperate and get claim back.
Regardless, this was a VERY fun fight and shows how it can be done given nobody jerks you around and for the most part MPK's you through indirect means. I look forward to fighting other tough NM's in the future using the same methods ^^

My Social LS camped this HNM this past Sunday. RMT got claimed. However, the other people camping this thing were ****** and started shouting to cast barspells, ja's, and other spells to create lag. IT WORKED. RMTs started to wipe, and tried kiting the **** thing twice. Then RMTs started to raise, and started to straight up tank Serket again. Again people started to cast barspells and other spells to create lag. IT WORKED AGAIN. RMT wiped LOL. My Social LS got claimed @2%. Killed Serket. We got cool titles, and we got the ring! ^^.

When I logged on last night, half of my LS was already camping this critter, and since it was about 3 minutes into his spawn window, I hopped a chocobo and headed out there. For the record, the LS WarriorsCalling on Shiva, is more of a social LS, not an HNM LS, but when the oppertunity presents itself, you gotta go for it, right? After about 20 min, we had a full Alliance of members waiting for him to pop, all of which were surrounded by an HNM LS and a group of gilseller (YellowCake). After 2hrs, he pops, right on top of one of our WARs - Remare, who vokes without a second of hesitation for the claim. We all proceed to pound the crap outta him, when all of a sudden life starts dropping into the orange. Usually, it's not uncommon for that to happen fighting an HNM, but it wasn't damage from Serket. Some miserable a-hole found a way to get around the MPK that SE has done a half way decent job to begin to prevent. I'm not gonna post what he was doing, just in case there are servers out there where it isn't going on, and I'm not about to be the one that starts giving MPK ideas away. But anyway, we all survive the battle except for a low 60ish WHM that was killed by an aggroing beetle. Just some potions for the drops, but at least we have cool new titles.

So, they're not Gilsellers, but they WILL stoop to s**thead Gilseller tactics? Sounds like a bunch o a**holes to me.

Then again, between constant competition between each other and the friggin Gilsellers... not TOO surprising.

Wow, you can spell but dont know the difference between the Christian MYTH of "Satan" and HADES, the GOD of the Underworld, who is the master of Cerberus... I pity you when Zeus blasts this world to Hades (the realm, not it's master) for the constant blasphemy over the past several thousand years.

Actually, Cerebus is not a brain... Cerebrum is the large, grey part of the brain, and the cerebellum is the small "mini-brain" looking organ on the bottom rear of the brain. Mis-information can really come back at ya.

In Egyptian mythology, Serket ("she who causes the throat to breathe") was a goddess depicted as wearing a scorpion on her head. She protected people against the poisonous bites and stings of animals, including snakes and scorpions. She was the patron deity of pharaohs, and dead souls, a position leading to her watching over one of the canopic jars, specifically, since she was associated with poison, the jar of the small intestine, the organ that was most thought of as the victim of poison, which was deified as Qebehsenuf, one of the Four sons of Horus. It was also said that she protected the tents of embalmers. She also guarded Apep once he was captured and imprisoned in Duat.

Don't have video but I've seen 2 Ninjas who subbed WHM duo it. It was a slow kill, and it was pre-patch, where you only have an hour to kill Serket before it turns into the Hulk and goes ballistic. That's why duoing or soloing some of these HNMs has gotten kinda risky. You risk throwing away all that time it took to kill it, and camp it just to wipe because it just shot some steroids.

ROFLMFAO!!!!


Ok, you want people to

1. take time out of their lives.

2. camp this for you.

3. compete with others, including gilfarmers.

4. and give you the serket ring that is currently worth 8 million gil for the reward of some ****** gears and 100k?


Sir, you have lost your f'n mind.

Erm.. you do understand that its usually camped by gilsellers and lots of other players, has a 21-24 hour spawn time, is soloable by VERY few people and often the people who claim serket get MPKed. The ring itself is a few mil, not including the claw. You'd need to pay someone a few million gil to camp this for you.
