So the Aerial Torpedoe's Self-Destruct isn't physical or magical damage, so what is it?

Helped a friend with the Savage Blade WSNM and decided to stay behind the Altepa Gate to level up my NPC buddy on the Decent Challenge (to 75) Anticans. This NM is on a 15-20 minute repop timer and was consistently easy to silence with Tachi: Gekko (never resisted, from my experience). He also drops 6,000 gil and some other goodies (Scroll of Stone IV and a few robes)... which isn't too bad. He's certainly not Vana d'iel's newest get rich quick scheme, but if you can silence him quickly and avoid Manafont, he's a steady source of income if you happen to be skilling up in the area ^^

For a greater economy shall follow us and it will be outdone. And a greater autonomy shall follow us and it too will be outdone. And a greater feeling shall follow Love and it too we will blow to dust.
Retired. For reals this time.

We came here for the Sword WSNM. The Praetor's spawn in two places: H-8 and another one in E/F-8. We got Stone IV and Darksteel Ore to drop.
Elvaan of Windurst

"O brothersss of rancor, take up thy lanternsss,
The truth we shall illuminate.
O sistersss of rancor, take up thy knives,
To cleave our foesss with barren hate.
Through this we ssseek our just reward;
Our goddess's glory be ressstored."
