I'm a lvl60Drg/25Whm and it was fun soloing this mob for a lvl42 Pld friend of mine (who ended up dieing 1/2 way through lol). If you need any help on Asura give Nadacky a call. ^-^

We went in 70RDM , 45PLD , and myself 44BRD . I have Base +26 CHR and capped singing skill and wind instrument (66CHR) . I could not land Elegy or Requiem on this guy at all . I used Threnody's and still no land , so I 2Hr'd because I just wanted to land something ... still no luck . He resisted Elegy and Requiem ... I managed to land all my threnodys regardless of instruments . So I just switched to stringed and skilled up on him . Only good thing was I could Ballad , Madrigal and Minuet .
45 , um NO

its an earth elemental of course u cant land elegy .. thats earth based. as for your requiem im not sure why it would not land, best guess would be high magical resistance since its an elemental.

Friend of mine was about to go solo this when I intervened. He is a 51 PLD currently and would not have survived most likely. So I went to help as 64 PLD/WAR. We killed around to build TP to 300%, buffed and then popped him. He showed up and I started off with a Spirits Within for 598 damage, dropping it to 20% or less. Friend used Seraph Blade, and then I tossed in a Holy and Banish 2, it dropped after a couple of hits afterwards. I say hit it before it can get stoneskin and etc up and you will be fine. Fight lasted no more than 30 seconds.
Pure BS!

There's no way this thing is level 45! That's just dumb! I as a 64 whm got hit for over 150 damage by this thing, and I had Protect IV on and Stoneskin! He immediately destroyed my stoneskin, wiped out my pld hubby and then eventually creamed me... didn't even get him down halfway.

Ummm, duh!? You ever fought an Elemental before? They are strong to melee damage, and all around tough bastards anyways! One's that con at EP on any job I have, I have to prepare for, you can't be stupid and assume a Elemental is gonna be like other mobs. Besides it isn't really a 45, it's more like a 55 mob, but even then I really don't understand how you couldn't kill the thing when even if it wasn't a NM, it shoulda conned at TW for you >.> Did you forget to use any of your MP on this thing? If you did you probably woulda pwned it. Whm's can't melee that well, period.
A lot easier then I thought it would be

Just killed Polevik earlier today(Well, late friday). From reading the posts here, I really did'nt think that our group was going to be able to beat this.

The Pld that needed his AF(Scaryman, 56pld) had died to this thing once before, and, though my level is a bit lower then his, I decided to help. He had another Monk on the way, so when he got there we headed out to Ordelles. We all built up 300%TP before he spawned the NM, and the other monk and I both boosted up for a Chi Blast at the beggining of the fight(280 something for me, 270 for Pyrobunny)

We then engaged, Bererked, and prepared to Hundred fists as that was the plan. Scaryman busted out a 577 Spirits within, and Polevik was dead.

We all thought we would wipe to this thing, so it was sort of odd to see him fall apart like that. Spirits Within dropped Polevik's hp rather fast, so I could'nt see an actual total. Im guessing that it's only 700-800 though.
Easy Peasy...

Just helped a 41 pld in my LS with this... i destroyed this thing as DRG66/WHM33, not really a hard fight if you know what you're doing, only time me and the pld had a hard time was when the NM Stonega II'd, this would bring pld to red health... but wyvern would just keep his HP high enough to survive it again XD

In case anybody cares:
"The spirit of the field, as 'Pole' means field. The appearance of the Polevik was described differently in every region. Some saw him as a human man 'dressed in white'. Others saw him as having a black body and two eyes of different colors.

Just like Leshy (Spirit of the forest), Polevik enjoyed leading people astray. The Polevik strangled drunken Slavs that slept in his field, instead of working. To win the favor of the Polevik one could place two eggs and a **** unable to crow anymore, in a ditch.

In the northern parts of Russia they had no Polevik, but a Poludnisa, 'Poluden' meaning 'noon'. A tall, beautiful girl dressed in white. She enjoyed pulling the hair of peasants working in the midday. She also helped little children to get lost in the cornfields."

Slavic mythology is fun yesh?

Always remember that you're unique... just like everybody else.

I'm 63 PLD now but I love fighting Polevik. First time I tried it was me and a 62 WAR. The WAR was getting wasted and he warped out >< So there was me having to run from this guy. But I came back that night with a 69DRK/WHM which was badass btw. We took him out pretty easy. I came back a few months later with a PLD friend of mine. I started the fight off with a full Spirits Within and it dropped him to about 1/4 health. So it's a super easy fight if you have a 55+ PLD helping you trust me.

Not too bad, however...

Myself (61 SAM/WAR) and a friend (61 RDM/BLM) Destroyed this thing in a matter of 3 minutes, just make sure if are helping someone with this, you have them stand back back far enough that they don't get hit with Stonega II. One thing i did notice is that this elemental seems to have an elemental defence equal to a normal elemental's physical defence, don't assume because its an elemental that nuking is the way to go.
For Honor

I'm going to do this ASAP I just made 39 and I'm forming a static w/ some LS buddies once I hit 40 we're gonna go do this and I think we'll do ok w/ a lvl 60 PLD helping me and two other mages out. If not there's a lvl 55 WHM I may employ as well. I'll repost once I have it^^

Funny Story

Funny story to this NM. We had a lvl 44 PLD, 44 PLD (me), and BST 58. First we got lost sitting in the Stroper/Stroper Chyme room looking for the spawn point.... Wrong H-10 lol. the we went up the stairs near the holes and found spawn point.

Polevik Loves to cast;
Stonega II

and that's what we had to deal with. the other PLD kept himself in range of Stonega II and it dealt 302 to him. Eventually he was killed because the thing insisted on spamming Stonega II, and the BST decided to kite the elemental.

A random lvl 54 WHM happened to be running around and casted Raise II on the fallen PLD. when the BST came back the Polevik was 1/4 HP, and the Crabfamiliar had done a great job. The BST insisted on killing it when the broth-mob died, and eventually killed it.

It was a struggle, but it was rather funny, and both PLD got the sword in the end =). We laughed it off on the airship back to Jeuno.
easy fight

i just helped a lv 42 pld friend do this and i must say it was EASY...

i got hit for 48 dmg the whole fight, (MNK61) used every ability i had u i took it down fast and easy.
# Jun 09 2005 at 9:22 PM Rating: Decent
A THF was killed by this as I passed, and it aggroed me (71MNK), so I engage it. This thing only has about 600 HP, which is why Spirits Within can one shot it(50% HP, ignoring DEF). For the first 50% of its HP, it hits for about 80 and its DEF is normal for an Elemental.

After that it went nucking futs on me.

Its ACC increased greatly and it started hitting for about 150 DMG normal hits with 40 added Stone from Enstone. Not to mention its Stonega II damage nearly doubled, hitting me for about 400 per cast. Its DEF increased, me doing about 10 per hit to it. In the end, I won with about a third of my HP left. One hit and a Stonega and I'd have been munching guano, though.

Spirits can't one-shot the Polevik lol it has around 850HP (660 Spirits Within got it down to ~20%)
# Apr 28 2005 at 9:56 PM Rating: Decent
just fought this one today for my PLD AF1...it was me (PLD 54) and my cuz Kegger (MNK 59) easy...you don't need a huge tank, you don't need any blm's you only need one big DD with you, and obviously not even that big...we pwned this thing in like 30 seconds..basically he built his TP up to 300, used hundred fists while i voked and cured myself, finished it off with Raging Fists...easy
PLD Story

Back a couple months ago i was in a helpful mood so I assist an upstart PLD in his quest for his Honor Sword (By the Way im a lev 58 PLD at the moment of this story) " And be being pretty confident thinking my new AF will help me kick this things butt"

Well i was mistaken!!

Me and the PLD i was helping were on our way to Ordelles Cave when my freind Yuraraina asked if she could help(then Hunt Stroper Chyme After) So i was like "Ok" She also being a PLD at 54 or 55 i cant remebere exactly

We head in to the Cave and our stratigy was to basicly have be and Yura duo the Mob with 2 Spirits within at 300%. And after whe got tp we had the lvl 42 PLD spawn the NM.

I used Spirits within! which hurt it real bad! then voked Yura then proceeded to unleash Spirits withing which took it down to about half Hp. About that time i was getting HAMMERed by it and was like "Holy crap, Its alot tougher than i remeber " We kept hiting it till i had 300% then Yura and the other PLD Cured me up to full heatlh. And after that I laid into it with another Charged Spirits within! which won the battle and sighed in relief

The PLD was happy and got his whetstone and then me and Yura Proceeded to hunt Stroper Chyme for 2 hours then we gave up no ring... ah well Good memories
ok... evil

Well did this last night with 62 NIN/WAR friend of mine. Went extremely easy. I was only hitting for 1-5 damage (40 PLD), so the nin was doing most of the hard work.

Polevik did Stoneaga II a total of 5 times in the fight. I ate three of them and gave myself cure3s. The 4th one dropped me below 100 HP. So nin told me to disengage and run into corner to rest MP and HP.

In the meantime the nin finished off Polevik. I left the fight at about 40% HP...she could have solo'd the whole fight easy, she prolly lost about 100 HP total.

Fight took about 7-8 minutes. His stoneskin is a pain, but bringing any DD 60+ with nin sub should have no problem duo'ing this with the PLD.

*BTW, shouts to Junin for helping me out ^^*

I was helping a pld do this quest last night. The plan was that he would trigger the mob, I would elemental seal + sleep II the elemental, then I would use Tornado on it (figuring Earth is weak against wind).

Well he resisted my ES + Sleep II, I had the tank provoke it, while I cast Tornado, for a whopping 200 pnts of damage. Water III did 140, Blizzard II did 92, ect. This mob is highly magically resistant. I drained it for 8 hp and Aspired for 4mp. (as a lv 55 blm).

This mob is not BLM friendly. But the lv 54 mnk in the pt was doing a fair amount of damage, a lot better than DD's should be able to do, to an elemental.

Helped someone with this last night, actly used blink when fighting him since he chewed through stoneskin fairly good. Kept him silinced, but everynow and then it looked at the pld, hit the pld once with a crit in the 600's. Looked painful lol. Battle took about 2-3min, found out for an elemetal his magic resistance was off the charts. Tried Aero II, hit him for 38 damage. BLizzard II hit for 47 damage. Best attacks to use are ws or job abiltys that have no elemental or melee propertys, Chi Blast, Spirtswithen, and Kights of the round.

WTH!! i had to look at what quest he was for to understand that " A ELEMENTAL IS A NM ".
