Definately not for a normal PT at Qufim lvl range to be killing. PT I had of lvl 24-25 people barely took one of these down, my LS didn't believe we actually did. Maybe /w 2 BLM you could kill em, they gave great XP (200)

These things resist impact with very high defence, making Leech Vrs. Leech very, very slow.

These guys also drop beastmen's seals but it's rare. I got one last night in qufim while trying to get my carbuncle's ruby.

All mobs drop seals, or at least I think so. Not sure on 50+ but I thought they dropped both.
Leveling Dagger
# Jan 08 2005 at 4:33 AM Rating: Decent
I came and leveled my dagger of these juicy targets. I started at 80 but came to a dead halt at about 92. I was hoping to get Viper Bite of these guys. Oh well, off to Khazam.

Anybody know how popular leveling off these is because Id rather stay at Quifim then go to Kazham as I hear its worse the Quifim
But other then that I want to get my Ruby early

I played for 4 hrs and lvl'd twice, but, then again we had a really good pt, but everyone there says that you can't fight those till like lvl 30, but in about 27+ pt I think you could and probably lvl at least once in 5 hrs, and get some xp on next lvl

Use the 'submit a correction' link to submit a picture of the mob. It will launch whatever email program you're using. Simply attach the image and send. Make sure you've appropriately cropped and sized it (just to be nice to the maintainers of the site).
If i am a lvl. 26 war/13 mnk?
# Jan 30 2004 at 12:54 AM Rating: Default
i am a lvl. 26 war/13 mnk, should i find a party to kill these things?
and how much xp would i get, and what lvls will it take from like from lvls 26-?, put anwer in question mark, and if i was only playing like 5 hrs a day, would i lvl. up to 27 in that day, or would i get to lvl. 27 and be half-way through it?

Another monster to fight would be some banshees right?, for about the same amount of xp, i hope, and what would be a better place to lvl. up other than kazham with a party i mean, maybe middle of delfkutt?

Level 26war/thf here. I had a kick A$$ group a few days ago and we were taking this thing down. Group was 3 lvl 25-26warriors, 1 lvl 25 bard, 1 lvl 23 blm/whm (dont wanna hear it this taru kicked A$$ ***** the exp rule we did fine), 1 lvl 25 rdm/whm. Just so you know at this level hes a pain. We nailed the first 2 easy, but the 3rd one took all the warrior 2 hours and we still almost died. 225 exp a kill though, and regen time isn't so bad. Might wanna get yourself a pair of WHM though (good luck in Qufim!). Mebbe if you promise to hand them the first ruby you will get lucky!

These things seem to resist just about everything!

What is the perfered magic to cast aganst it???

It says based on water, so does that mean that Thunder would work the best?

Best plan for XPing with these was to cap your party at 29 and boot people who made it to 30. A full group of level 29's with xp chain 1 would get 152 xp for a "Very Tough" (highest level of acrophies spawn)

So, Kill a Pugil or two for chain, build up 300% TP and Lay it on the Acro for great xp.
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 11 2003 at 4:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Killing a beast fast even if it is really high lvl yields a lot less exp than fighting it outright, if you have to all have 300tp to kill one your time would better be spent killing the giants, which arent too bad and give a great deal of exp. a group 19-22 we got 147 exp from a giant and no-one came closer than 120 hp from dying, and only because of the AOE attack they do "stomp" or whatever it is

The amount of xp you get isn't determined by how fast you kill it, it's determined by the level of the mob compared to the highest level in your party (and then less xp for those of lower level, etc), but it certainly has nothing to do with how fast you kill it.
Carbuncles Ruby
# Dec 04 2003 at 6:34 PM Rating: Default
They drop Carbuncles Ruby as well. I have been in two seperate parties where this dropped. I got the second one. 2-BLM would actually be prefered to take these down from around level 25.

I've actually fought Acrophies in Qufim with a party of 25-26. You really need a black mage to help deal the most damage though, and a good tank that can keep aggro (paladin), along with a primary/secondary healer. Perfect for levelling to 30, at 26 with a party of 6 they gave 192 exp. A good alternative if you can't/won't get the keys to Kazham. At 30, I think they were still in the low 100's.
