Za'Dha Adamantking Picture

As the Quadav King, Za’Dha controls the entire Quadav army and is the strongest warrior among them. It is thought his reign has lasted over 100 years, but the custom of transferring the Adamantking title to future generations makes this measurement inaccurate and perhaps trivial.

Some/all of the information in this article has been culled from various FFXI guides, and translated by Elmer the Pointy.

Za'Dha can also drop a Damascus Ingot. Had one drop from him about a month ago.

Beat this guy with only 2 people and 3 characters. Titan server.

Luwenya NIN/THF (me)
Jeri WHM/BLM (me)
Tarcon RDM/SCH

Took about 2 hours, used about 400 tools, and had no outside help. Enfeebles stuck well from NIN and RDM, silence stuck twice, cannot be slept. Killed him at the zone, using a combination of melee/jin/ SA Ten dmg and DOT from RDM. At the end CS thunder3 and Banish3/Banishga2 took him down. Defeated by Jeri with a Banish 3.

Dropped a bunch of random crap, did it for sport. Happy hunting.

Za'Dah is now almost exclusively camped by RMT's on Cait Sith. Not sure why they are wasting so much time on him. He very rarely drops a D. Cloth and almost never drops the Mistilteinn. Maybe they know something we don't?

Was there while back for skill ups. He pops up and every one really doesnt want to pull it. By this time i am tired of listening to all the no no he will kill joo. Pffft I mean come on 10 people lv range 73-75 mostly tanks and dds. I run out stun him in the midst of arguement. The PLD cheered and flashed.

From there it went rather well. No one died, and he really didnt drop much stuff, say for the stone, testimony, ore, and a coin.

killed 2x so far. first time WAR/THF, BRD/WHM, RDM/WHM, NIN, took 1.5 hours. second time NIN, WAR/NIN, BRD70/WHM, BLU/WAR, RDM61/BLM, RDM69/BLM, took 1hr. fairly simple to fight if you pay attention to shadows and dont let HP drop low cause he hits nins hard. double mambo works great. our RDM69/BLM ES sleepga Za'Dha Adamantking to pull(king wont sleep, but surrounding NM's will) rdm runs and zones hate, rest of pt grabs Za'Dha and there ya go.

I know all of you have aparently beat him...
but here's what he says when you actually do.

Za'Da Adamantking: I a-am fini-ished.
Hear me, Wa-arriors of the quadav
the throne of the adamantking and the line of Za'dha pa-asses to my bro-other...

(that's interesting)

Taken down on Cerberus on the 31st of July.
With an unholy alliance of Revile and the JP ls NyoNyo!
PS: Nether Blast pwns him. 460 damage a shot. I suggest bringing a smn or two, we had 2.

One of our members was trying to farm Water IV, when this guy popped. We went down with the following:

75SAM/THF (me)
2x 75 RDM/WHM
2x 75 THF/NIN

Took a while to kill, I think it dropped a crystal. Nothing good at all.

Long Live Adamantking

took him down last night right before maintenance.

we were 10 people 65-75


took about 45min to take down cause we didnt have much DD, kinda easy, but has a lot of life
as 65rdm with capped enhancing, phalanx and stoneskin up that nm hits me for 300+.

Didnt drop the club, but we got plat bstcoin gold ore raise III and plat ore.

thats about it.

went back after maintenance, meh it was diamond quad, ulucky us coulve gotten him twice in 3hrs.

oh well
quintet!! (solo duo trio quartet quintet ._.)

Killed this guy with 4 others in my linkshell :3

went with: nin/war, nin/war, rdm/whm, drg(i dont know what drgs sub was, probably war... ;;)
and me as blm/whm

>.> the fight was insanely easy but took maybe an hour and a half or so...it was at like 40 percent and wasnt using benediction so i had to ES thundaga III the stupid thing >.> and sure enough he used it lol...

We pulled this guy to the zone so if one of us (like me) got too much hate we could just zone out and in, and it also avoided links.
We had it down to like 40 percent after it had used benediction, and then some people in my ls who overheard that we were actually killing it decided they now wanted to come and that they were now now no longer busy with other stuff, so they arrived >.>
so we didnt exactly kill it with 5 people, but only 3 others came, and i dont think plds and w/e are gonna make much a difference >.>
makes me a lil upset that they had the nerve to come when it was near dead though :P

We didnt get club, but I can confirm that it doesnt take an alliance to kill this. In fact it could probably be done with 4 or 3 people, taking out the drg and the rdm, im sure that nin/war nin/war and blm/whm could take it :P The nins were passing hate most of the fight and they only got hit like twice the whole time and i was already mostly on cure duty >.> The rdm we had was actually just one of the nins on their brothers account so rdm didnt do entirely too much during the fight, other than refresh me (not often) and haste the melees

Went to do a DRK testi with my ls last night, when the DRK says "Hey, now that I think about it, Diamond Quadav should be up tonight."

Well, get past the door.. and guess who's pimpin his massive WHM axe with Ruby and Adaman?

Called the ls up, got as many as we could down there and we -we're- pwning him! First HNM we've ever taken, and would have beat him too. After Bene we got him down to about 60% when a taru MNK (Merc. who was working for the other ls watching us, though they say he was rogue.) grabs Ruby and drops him on us.

Needless to say, **** hit the fan. Tank fell, back up tank fell, backup backup tank fell. Mages started droping. Then, as a SMN 2hour'd.. he went unclaimed, and we got kill jacked.

All in all, fun fight. Too bad we didn't beat him but the Guard is comin back for him some day...

I heard a rumor a long time ago that Adamantking drops Mistilteinn only when someone already has a Scroll: Raise III in their inventory. I believe this to be apocryphal, but figured I'd throw it back out there to see if someone would test it.

Yay for Jhereg!
Old Rumor
# Jul 15 2006 at 3:27 AM Rating: Decent
tested this yesterday and sadly no...but Raise III did drop >< no club
I like the Title it gives you lol.

I tagged along as the lowest level melee in the LS (70 DRK) weilding my trusty Balmung and subbing THF. Our main tank could've straight tanked it no prob, but the SAM's kept leveling off enmity so the WHM's kept getting it lol. It took about 30 mins or so to kill it. Now I am the AdamantKing Usurper!!!

Heard he was up while in jueno. Get a 5 person team and head out. Whm pulled and got everything in room, needless to say we were raped. Raised and got more ppl, 18 total. We pull and beat his brains in and yes, he dropped the Mistilteinn !! If on Siren server and you need it /tell Deadbolt for price. Was fun fun fight.

When I logged in the other day I see most of the LS around Beadeaux, and I ask whats up, and they tell Za'Dha Adamantking is up so I hurry there to help. We fought near the zone at I-7 so we could zone hate if needed. The party setup was:

The fight took about 15 min I think, pretty easy all the way. The NIN DCed right before amantking did Benidiction, so a PLD took over and tanked just fine, and the BLM killed him fast with Thundaga3 - zone. All around fun and easy fight, drops were ok too, White Mage's Testimony, Raise 3, Platinum Beastcoin, Platinum Ore and Damascus Ingot, so we all 14 made around 300k aswell.
