Defeat the Angler Orobon to claim your prize! To get to this BCNM, you must first go to Nashmau, head out the western exit, and head north through the cemetary into Talacca Cove (E-9,The zone where the COR quest ends). Touch the Rock Slab at (F-6) in Talacca Cove to start the battle.
The fight is a 6 on 1 uncapped battle against an Angler Orobon. The orobon likes to spam TP moves. He will use one every 7-9 seconds throughout the fight. It it recommended the melees sub Ninja unless they will be killed.
The moves are:
Hypnic Lamp: Small AoE sleep, always followed by Deathgnash. Buy poison pots, because you don't want to be asleep when someone gets Deathgnashed.
Deathgnash: A move like throatstab, it will *always* bring a person into critical HP, but never kill them. It will bypass shadows, is stunable, but he WILL use it again right after he is un-stunned. It resets hate on the person who is hit, which should be the tank. Your shadows will not dissapear if hit.
Seismic Tail: One of the most important moves to look out for, this move can be a hard hitter. It takes away 2-3 shadows, and if it lands, it will hurt. This is the reason everyone should sub Ninja.
Leeching Current: AoE drain move. Unsure if Barwater affects the damage it does. It doesn't use this move often.
Seaspray: Cone attack that delivers damage as well as a form of Slow that overwrites Haste. You must Erase slow before you recast Haste.
Abominable Belch: AoE Damage and Paralyze,Silence, and 10Hp/Tic Plague. It is hard to stun. The damage isn't high, but you will need melees to buy Echo Drops. Have any mages sub Whitemage and macro Paralyze and Viruna.
The monster is very hard to tank, and if you do, you will need a Ninja and a Blue Mage. Have the Blue Mage stun every time the Angler Orobon starts using a TP move. If he has decent haste gear it shouldn't be hard and he should be able to use Head Butt for every stunable move, minus Deathgnash and Abominable Belch. The mages will be focused on Cureing from Deathgnash and erasing status effects. Melees stand behind the Orobon and keep Utsusemi up.
If the bluemage does his job correctly, the hate from the Stun will keep the orobon focused on the Bluemage until the Ninja re-establishes hate. Other strategies include keeping the Orobon gravtied (it is weak to this) and have Blackmages nuke or melees Arrow Weapon Skill it while the tank is kiting.
