RDM75 / ??? pretty much simple gear, simply melee him to death for the fun of it. . .consider it a change of pace from hrs of fishing. . . .usually need to recast stoneskin once which would mean he deals about 1k dmg to me total
Could This Day Get Any Worse!?! ><;

Wow!! ><

I just step on the boat, everything is calm and cool. There was someone else on the boat with me. I did /sea to see what their job was just cause I'm nosy that way. Any who, I notice they're no longer on the boat. Instead, I see this rather large ugly thing coming my way. I think 'wtf!?!' BOOM!! It hits my level 25 Beastmaster for 518 points of damage, and at the moment, all I can say is 'Wow'. I deleveled, but I can easily get that back. I'm just in such shock atm, but yet, I'm laughing. I'm guessing the person before me went up stairs to fish and got aggro and then brought the Sea Horror down to me. And then they homepointed and I got aggro ><;

At least my homepoint is in Selbina. I guess I'll kill a few things until I level and attempt the boat ride again so I can back to Windy Woods.

~Wish me luck, lol!!

I solo'd this as a 75 Mnk/Nin. Not to hard, only dropped a shell for me, but the main thing is, I got my own back for all those deaths on the ferry ^^

Well, was yet again fishing on the boat when this sob pops again. But this time I had all my gear on me. I buffed up full(didn't have food on me though) and started to attack it. The fight went preaty smooth, with Aquaveil I could easily cast mid fight stoneskin.Come 60% health he used 100Fist and he already had Bind + Grav on him so I just ran away, converted and reentered the fight. At 10% he decided he didnt want to be killed and I was running out of mp/hp and the "We are aproaching <porttown> message came up, so I poped 2hr and put up stoneskin and finished him with Vorpal blade and Bludgeon. Soloed as Rdm 66/Blu with full melee gear. Ended fight with 300~hp and no mp(550 was max for me) and about 20 sec before boat docked.
ya!~

You know, eff this guy! All he does is kill little kids on the boat trying to have a good time!

And when you do try to kill him back, his item is only worth 4k on Asura as of 10/31/07!


I can buy two stacks of wind crystals for that!!!!




This guy can shove his tentacles in a pencil sharpener.

I have been camping the Mhuara-Selbina route for about 2 weeks, off and on, trying to get Blackbeard.

This guy has aggro'd me as a 75 a couple times, and his aggro range is unbelievable. I always have my trusty 75 Samurai partner with me. But, this guy blows through Sam's 3rd eye quickly. He's pretty much too weak, and then he will Hundred Fists, and that is no joke. A couple well-timed Cure 3's and the occasional Cure 5 always do the trick, but it gets intense there for about 30 seconds where he just wails on my partner.

Not only is he annoying, he is pretty **** stingy. We are 0/7 on drop. We don't need the shoes, and we aren't camping him, but if he's gonna aggro us, we should get something more than a shell. ><;

Solo'd as 75PLD/37WHM.

Kept rotating Stoneskin and Blink up. Would pop Sentinel or Rampart if he stopped my re-cast on SS.

Martial Anelace made Spirits Within worth using a few times, and I popped Chivalry mid-fight to refill my mp bar.

He never even took my hp more than 200 from full. Long fight, but easy :-)

I was just heading to Selbina looking out thru the cabin when he pops.
He proceeds to one shot two differnt gilsellers, comes around and whaps another gs fisherman, which I found rather amusing lol .
I was 71/25 PLD/THF was gonna camp V.E. So I gave it a try. I had no food figured i was gonna get smacked around but I wanted to try
He hit me hard first few hits so I used Sentinel; the hits didnt hurt as much
Sea Horror and I got toe to toe for a few before he uses Hundred Fists; I counter with Invincible; he missed 20 times
Its really close now i have less then 300 hp and he has about 10% left ... 10 secs left on Sentinel 79 tp I start thinking I can beat him Then DEAD lol
I believe fully subbed anything and I would have won
Fun Fight
I will get you yet

Went fishing on the ship as Galka 75pld/37rdm. Was minding my own business when this guy "taps" me on the shoulder. Ok, that's sweet, he wanted to play... :)

Buffed up Protect4, Shell3, Stoneskin, Phalanx, Blaze Spikes, Enthunder. Threw up Slow, Paralyze, Blind and Bio II. Flashed mainly when my Stoneskin wore. Hit Dispel on him when he used his regen move. When he popped Hundred Fists, I used Invincible. (Could have gotten away with Sentinel to be honest) Barely took any damage. Threw in Shock and Thunder when I had a minute.

Had him down to a sliver of life and the damned ship docked! @.@ Didn't help that he spawned well over 1/2 way through the trip. If I had had any attack food on me, I'd have beaten him silly.

I'm going back tonight to whip his butt, a nice piece of Sole Sushi all ready with his name on it...

UPDATE:

Ran into this fool again last night getting Ninja AF Legs from NM. Popped right after the NM was dead. His mistake. Was Pld/Rdm, Protect IV, Shell III, Stoneskin, Phalanx, Blaze Spikes and Enthunder.

Opened with Flash, enfeebled with Bio II, Slow, Paralyze, Blind and Gravity. When he used Hundred Fists, countered with Invincible.

Fight lasted 90 secinds with one very dead squid. :p

Dropped 2 Shall Shells, but a satisfying win.

Sea Horror Sucks!
# Jun 19 2007 at 11:47 AM Rating: Decent
So I took the boat to Mhaura to finish a quest. I stayed inside the ship, as a 53whm/26blm I have learned never to attempt or tempt anything on my own. I went afk for a few minutes and come back just in time to see the Sea Horror deal my death blow. No one else on the ship, so just my luck, he pops inside the boat. WTF?!? ;;

These can spawn INSIDE the boat?!?!?!? I also don't leave the cargo area of the ship for this very reason, I've gotten smacked by a tentacle while opening the deck door one too many times, and now you're saying I'm not even safe there?

Was pretty fun fight. Only a shall shell, 36 XP.

Kited his hundred fists, kept him blind with blind bolts, and used **** just to keep HP full cuz cross attack CAN hurt.

Soloe'd him twice as 71THF/35NIN while taking the boat to fish.

Basically couldn't hit me other than tp moves which wasn't too bad with **** bolts. I chose to perfect dodge when he used hundred fists both times but it was probably unnecesary. A few sleep bolts could have done the trick. I would go so far as to say with enough eva gear a thf could survive hundred fists just standing there and waiting it out. Ninja could probably do just as well-- maybe an equal amount of trouble against hundred fists.

I was expecting a little more of a challenge the first time; didn't actually engage until it killed my fishing mate and was surprised how easy it was.

Good luck everyone =) you'll get your revenge some day

Ok i was on the ship as 71PLD/17BLM waiting for pirate event for a sand charm and it spawns on one of the trips so i figured i would give it a try. The fight was going well and i was just healing when needed but he didnt really hit me that hard. When he 2hred i used Sentinel and it hardly did any damage to me with it up plus i had a jelly ring. I started getting low on hp and mp and it wasnt looking good so i 2hred and contiune to fight. i get it down to about 10% and was out of mp and getting low on hp so i used a x-potion 2 hi potion and a hi potion+3. I kill it with about 112 hp left. Overall a somewhat hard fight but with 17blm as a sub it should be. With /war I prolly would not of had to use potions. Anyone wanting to fight this make sure you can take some damage because Hundred Fists will take you out if you can't.

j/k i got @$$pWnT for 7046 damage... and no... im NOT kidding...

My brother was trying to help me get to windurst b/c the music in San d'Oria is annoying and the music in bastok is depressing... low and behold; guess who decides to pop. yeah Sea Horror. I knew Since my brother was a lvl 60 whm at the time he coulnt take it so I (not knowing how high lvl it really was) Used Mighty Strikes and i get Crowned the new King of Agro.

Ichigo uses Mighty Strikes
Sea Horror scores a critical hit!
Ichigo takes 7046 points of damage.
Ichigo was Defeated by the Sea Horror.

I was just riding the ship back to Mhaura as BST68/NIN34 to finish up the quest Sand Charm (pirates had popped and I'd got the drop on the Mhaura -> Selbina ship) and with about 5 mins to go he pops. I decided to go for it so I called Carrie and started beating on him. Fight was going pretty well with his and Carries HP pretty much the same. Then when he's at about 65% HP he 2hours. Was expecting that so I ran to the other side of the boat and waited for Carrie to die. I still had about 3 mins left on Call Beast timer so I charm-bound it. Worked a **** of a lot better than I had expected with Charm lasting for a good 5 seconds sometimes. Call Beast was almost up and I still hadn't taken a single hit when the ship arrived in Mhaura >.<

Going back later to finish him off, but a 68BST can easily solo him.

I just soloed this as RDM70/DRK35, I claimed him, Had stoneskin up, so I was able to get all my buffs and debuffs in before I lost stoneskin, then I simply put stoneskin back up. I was handling him with relative ease until it did Hundred Fist, then it became a little interesting. Just as he does Hundred fists, I get the messages "Ice spikes wears off""Sea Horror is no longer Paralyze", so I'm like "Oh fock me". I managed to get ice spikes up half way through (I know I should have just used Paralyze), the paralyze effect from it crippled it's hundred fists (No pun intended... Ok, maybe a little), only hitting about half the time. I spammed cure spells to keep myself alive until he was done, then I discovered the wonders of Bind... (wish I would have done that during Hundred fists). Anyways, I move away, convert, cure myself to about 75%, then move in for the kill. Aquavail was nice in this fight, as my spells were rarely interupted. What do I get for my efforts? 39 exp and a Sea Shell.. But the biggest reward is probably getting revenge for about a 3 year old grudge from the **** this bastid caused me as a noob. lol

He got me down to 200/700 some hp in 4 hits and somehow got tp to cross attack for 270. Shall shell dropped and got 31 exp. Sleep was resisted, bind would hold for a nuke and a little into another nuke.

Was 15RDM no sub on way back from Mhaura (sightseeing i guess lol) when I saw a Sea Pugil, so I engaged (registered easy prey) and was just beating it up, when I fall to the ground.

"You've gotta be sh*tting me".

Looked at the log and

"Sea Horror smashes Elizabett for some unGodly amount of dmg".

"oh".

So as I watch on in dismay it hunts the other passenger on ship (he was afk) and deals with him in the same way. Arrive back at Selbina, bodies dumped on shore unceremoniously. /explain shaming

Can't wait to lvl up and hunt him down.

i hit lvl 20 and decided to go out from valkrum and go over to maruha to do some...sightseeing i guess. anyways, some lvl 13 punk was fishing and caught the sea horror. unless i misread it and the just spawned. anyways, it killed him off in one swift hit and then came after me, he missed me 3 times and on the fourth hit he decimated me. if was a single one sided fight, never spawned on me again. but once i hit 23 the sea monk spawned and i killed him with the help of japolo from my linkshell. so it was almost a satisfying revenge.

Ok there are countless times that i have seen this NM i am a regular on the ferry since I fish all the time. He has crept up and killed me more than I would like to admit. He is a very tough NM, only because of hundred fists. !!
What you need to know if you plain on soloing him is that you have to paralyze him for his 2 hour. Kite him if you can with gravity and run around the boat. 64drg/whm and i can almost solo him(if he didnt have that **** 2 hour.) He can pop twice as well on the same boat but unlikely that you can kill him in time the secound spawn. I have never seen the pirates or pirate NM pop as the same time as him. Sea horror can go down easily with a 70 + job on the boat. dont be afraid to call for help if he agros you, seeing how his drop isnt really all that expensive. Do know that if you are low lvl job and you like to fish I can suggest 2 things.

- fish on the top of the stairs and try and claim that spot right away when the boat takes off

- or fish on the very very front of the boat and try and keep a low profile.
(this secound is more likely to get agro from the NMs but does give you a better chance than just fishing in the midddle of the boat)

:) good luck all and remember to watch your back on the boat sea horror loves to ruin any fishing expidition.


drg for life!!!! O.o

fishing = lvl 53!!! woot!

Was taken ship from Mhaura 2 Selbina heading home 2 Bastok as a 30thf/nin. I'm up in the wheel room minding my own when low and behold, Sea Horror spawns on the deck. I figure as long as I stay out of the way and try not 2 draw his attention, I should b fine. WRONG!! It spots me immediately n comes in 4 the kill. Didn't have time 2 get Perfect Dodge up or anything. If it would've done a crit hit, it could've taken me out in 1 hit but it didn't so it took 2. I had already decided 2 retire monk earlier that day cause I got owned. This definately wasn't the way I would've like 2 end the day. Was thinking bout leveling drg myself n now I'm certain. I will have my sweet revenge!

I ran into this guy tonight for the first time. 3 of us on the boat a 12 BLU/WHM (me) and two WAR 16 & 18. LOL.....

As soon as we all saw it was a NM we waited just inside the doors to the deck. I think we would have been safe, but one of these guys wanted to go fishing REAL bad. After a few minutes one of them opens the door to go out onto the deck, probably thinking he could sneak past it. He gets killed. The second guy disapears.

I'm standing in the corner peering around and only seeing tenticles coming through the door. I freeze in the corner hoping it'll turn around and go back out on deck. Wrong! It comes through the door blocking the stairs to go down to the hold. He's directly across from me and we stand there for the longest time - just staring at eachother. Finally he starts to move around to the right, so I go left with the intention of opening the deck doors, running out and hiding somewhere. Wrong! He one hits me and I die.

The third guy is hiding somewhere on the boat and made it out alive.

I never set my HP in Selbina. "why?" I thought. "I'm not going to die." Had to walk wall the way from the middle of the B. Penninsula.

I sent a /tell to the yahoo that opened the door and thanked him for doing so.

Took a long break from FF just got back not too long ago. Figured I'd take the boat to the dunes to get the items for Aht Urhgan (haven't got the expansion yet). Anyways just me and some hume. I'm on deck looking around, casting stuff on myself for fun. Killing Sea Monks and Clippers that pop.

Anyway I see what I think is a Sea Monk pop and start whacking the hume in the 100s but they don't call for help. I'm thinking to myself: "Hehe silly low level....I'm a 73 BLM Taru...nothing can touch me on this boat" So I'm just walking around, enjoying the view. Then I notice the hume shadowbinds it and runs below I think.

I'm thinking time to show what a BLM can do: "Alright Blizzard II will be a nice opening attack" 300 dmg. Then I see his hp bar didn't even move. By now this thing is covering me, I can't even see myself. I manage to get stoneskin up and try sleeping it. By the time I see it's resisted I'm already kissing the floor.

Like my 3rd day back in a few months and this haha. When I HPed I thought about it thinking I should bound it then ran..dunno. After reading here seems like my only chance would have been to warp.

Oh when I got back I did a /sea all of the person on the boat with me. 75 RNG/NIN I think. Yea if I checked them before the sea horror, I would have known better. Think this is the first time encountering him....can't wait to try and get even for fun.

How horrible for low levels going to the dunes.....

I solo'd this guy when I was 68thf\nin. It wasn't even a challenge to say the least. He missed most of his attacks, and I kept up utsu. When he used his 2 hour I simpled Shadowstitched and back off. When that wore I perfect dodged the rest of his hundred fists and then finshed him off. Didn't even hit yellow health.

I hopped on the boat to Mhuara as my 21 BLM/WHM to finish up a quest there. I had every intention of warping back to jeuno once I once I was done. While on the boat, I did some fishing and skilled up twice (0.1 and 0.2 respectively). As we docked in Mhuara and the three other passengers I had been riding with got right back on, I thought to myself "Hey, why not ride back to Selbina and do some more fishing? Maybe I'll skill up some more!" So I quickly run into the Shepard's Muster, get my Tableware Set and jump back on the boat. As soon as we're out to sea, I head to the deck and cast my line. While waiting for a bite, a mob appears directly over me, waving its orange tentacles about. I immediately panic, because there had been a regular Sea Monk on the previous ride that scanned T for me, but was easily killed by a 74 DRK who was on board. I scan the mob thinking if worse came to worse I could quickly cast ES + Bind on it, move out of its reach, start nuking it and Call For Help (remember the same three people are on board, including the DRK ). Low and behold I found out its a Sea Horror hovering above me. My legs turn to jelly and before I get a chance to even think about reeling in my line and trying to get the **** out of the way, he smacks me for 468 and down I go.

Xandria is defeated by the Sea Horror.

I pan the camera around the boat and make out the name of one of the other passengers. I send him a /tell asking if anyone is capable of raising? He answers back yes (thank God!). The DRK tractors me up the stairs and behind the cabin, then proceeds to raise me. As soon as I'm back amongst the living I open the cabin door and go inside to recuperate.

Through the cabin window I see the Sea Horror start slapping someone else around. Fool and occasional n00b that I am, I cast Cure on the victim. The Sea Horror turns and starts making its way towards the cabin. "Oh SH*T!" I yell out and throw open the opposite cabin door, hoping I can just keep running up and down the steps until the boat docks, avoiding the 2nd death that is looming before me. As I run out of the door, I bump into the DRK who is changing into his AF gear from his fishing gear. "Aha!" I think, "he must be getting ready to do battle!" I also notice that the Sea Horror has stopped pursuing me and has resumed pounding into the guy I'd tried to cure. As soon as the guy is dead, the Sea Horror turns around and starts coming back towards me. "Oh SH*T!" I yell out again and turn to run around to the other side of the boat. The Sea Horror quickly catches up to me and wallops me for another 468 points of damage.

Xandria is defeated by the Sea Horror.

At this point, I want to kick myself for not warping back to Jeuno from Mhuara. Just had to be the greedy little fisherwoman didn't I? Couldn't just take my two little skill ups and be happy could I? Noooo! Now look at me... two deaths in the space of 5 minutes >.<

"At least the DRK will be able to raise me again," I think to myself. The 22 Taru MNK who I'd sent the /tell to asking about a raise comes over and tells me that the DRK is fighting the Sea Horror and the mob is halfway dead. Alright! GO DRK, GO!! Two minutes later I see:

XXX is defeated by the Sea Horror. (Name removed to prevent any shame and unnecessary haggling.)

OH NO!!! There goes my chance for a raise. The Taru is now the only survivor on the boat. From my death perch, I watch as he opens the cabin door and goes inside to hide. As soon as the door closes, the Sea Horror floats up the steps, goes through the door, and smacks the Taru one time for 1028 points of damage.

ZZZ is defeated by the Sea Horror. (Name also removed)

A minute later, the boat CS starts up and our three dead bodies are tossed onto the shore. Needless to say, I have no intentions of riding the boat as a low level character anymore.

I was on the ship from Mhaura to Selby trying to catch the "Fat Greedie" for a selby quest. As I walked up to the deck of the ship the Sea Horror was right up to the door. As soon as I open the door I hear it turn. I call ShellbusterOrob and I start beat'n on him while casting blind and paralyze. Every once in a while taking hate of my pet with "Rampage" then turning my back when Stoneskin and Blink wore off so Orob could take hate and I could rebuff and pop juices. I had got it down to half life, Orob almost dead and I was ready to call another. Then out of nowhere Cure3 pops off on me and I am full health with about 50% MP. I see him ready his hundred fists, but was paralyzed (Is that a glitch or can that normally happen?)I start beating on it using Rampage every 100% and using my pets Sic move. I am not completely sure if I could've taken it by myself or not, but I was in no immediate danger. Thanks to the concerned WHM. I don't know what level he was cuz he was anon and Japanese, lol. I got the drop and made my money. I then sent a few 100k to that Japanese player for helping me out. I wouldn't recommend doing this until about 64-68 depending on your job. Hope this helps anyone.

Was taking the boat to Mhaura from Selby to get the 2nd clue for my thief AF boots, ship was there just as I got there. Hit up flee, prayed I'd make the boat in time. (60 Thief/20Blm at the time for warp)

Boat takes off, I run up deck happily drooling over the possiblity I get my new boots today.

Open the door, guess who is there. "Hmmm, that would suck if that was Sea Horror" I say to myself.

*tilts camera up to see name*

"Oh god no"

I panic and hit my flee macro about 4 times. Oh wait. -.-

It took me down to half health before I realized: "omg! I have WARP"

Sea Horror hits Burnation for 164 dmg.
Sea Horror hits Burnation for 138 dmg.
Sea Horror hits Burnation for 119 dmg.
Burnation starts casting Warp on Burnation.
Sea Horror hits Burnation for 127 dmg.
Burnation's casting is interrupted. (oh sh*t)
Sea Horror hits Burnation for 159 dmg.
Burnation starts casting Warp on Burnation.
Sea Horror hits Burnation for 162 dmg.
Sea Horror misses Burnation.
Sea Horror misses Burnation.
Burnation casts Warp.
Burnation vanishes.

Well, the other day I borrowed my friend's character to help him collect the items required for the Aht Urghan pass. This involved a trip from Selbina to Mhaura, so I hopped on the boat. When the boat left, I ran up the steps, opened the door, and staring back at me is a Sea Horror.

My friend's character is a 66RDM, and I've seen a video of a 67DRG/WHM solo'ing it. I gave it some thought, then buffed up and engaged.

I blinded it and paralyzed it immediately, which seemed to really help. With Phalanx up, Stoneskin would last for about 6-7 hits, which was a little scary. However, my friend's Enhancing Magic is capped, and the Horror didn't seem to be able to interrupt the recast. I was hitting it for about 60-80, and the Horror was doing the same to me with Stoneskin down.

Approximately five minutes later, after chipping away at it furiously, I had him down to about 1/4 health. I was feeling pretty confident; I had about half MP left and I was at full health.

Of course, whenever I get too **** things seem to go to hell. And it did- the Sea Horror used Hundred Fists and proceeded to blast through Stoneskin in approximately 3 seconds. With it pounding away like this, there was no way I could recast Stoneskin, so I cast Sleep II...resisted. So I Elemental Seal, and cast again...also resisted. I finally decide to try and kite the Horror around the cabin, but it was too late. Took two more hits in the back and went down for the count, losing 2600 EXP that wasn't mine to lose. ^^;

Knowing what I know now, I would try to Gravity/Bind and kite immediately when it pops Hundred Fists. Assuming that works, I am confident that a 66RDM can solo this as long as they're careful.

The most important thing I can tell you: This thing is extremely difficult to sleep, if it's even possible at all. Don't rely on Sleep to keep you safe from the Horror's 2-hour!

I was a 71 summoner as I openned the door as soon as the ship took off Carby sprung into action at Horror. I was scared **** because this guy's known for killing. Wasn't long before his Whirlwind cut down the low level spectators around me. I blinked, SS and Aquaveiled. As soon as Carby died I began using Garuda/Pred. Claws. I drank 1 Yagudo drink to ensure my victory. He hundred fisted at the end and thankfully I was able to get 1 last Pre. Claw in with Garuda as she was low HP. Gave me 42 exp, a crystal and a shell. Any survivors proceeded to clapping.

Wow, I got my first solo kill on this thing and it wasn't so bad after all. 74RDM/NIN
I was camping it after a pld friend in my LS soloed him earlier this evening and after about 2 hours of waiting i was about to log out when it spawned. I jumped up and threw on Pro4, Stoneskin and Utsusemi Ni then started whailing. When it got to about 50% hp it hundred fisted so I fravitied and kited it around the ship until it wore off then got right back to work. When it had about 20 hp left or so the boat captain gave the soon to be arriving call so I started to panic. I didnt bother at all to buff and hit Chainspell and started throwing out Blizzard IIIs until it died. As it died we arrived into town. Talk about a close call, but a solo kill is a solo kill. Just take your time and dont panic and hes not bad at all.

I ran into this bad boy taking 2 people over to Giddeus for their Kazham keys. I WAS (emphasis) a WHM35/BLM17 and she WAS (emphasis as well) a WHM24/BLM12. Anyway, we were just fishing and I see this pair of tentacles come into the screeen and I just thought "Sea monk, we can handle it when it aggros", and I keep fishing up my monster. Suddenly I just see her laying dead on the deck, and I just thought "That's strange". Then about 1 sec after I pulled up the pugil I was wondering why I was laying face down on the deck. I scroll up and see "The Sea Horror hit Mattnumbers for 368 damage" and "The Sea Horror scores a critical hit for 408 damage". It moves away, and since I had reraise up I thought I was far away enough to safely raise myself. Before the animation was over I was dead again. We got raises when a high lvl (60ish) BLM who was hiding tractored us up the stairs. I want my level back.
