Historical Information

In Hindu mythology, Narasimha was the 4th avatar of the god Vishnu. Described as having the face and claws of a lion, and the body, arms, and legs of a man, Vishnu utilized this form when confronted the rakshasa Hiranyakashipu. Hiranyakashipu, seeking vengeance on Vishnu for the killing of his brother Hiranyakasha, obtained a boon from the god Brahma that he could not be killed in day or night, inside or outside a house, on the ground or in the sky, with any weapon, by human or animal, or by any demigod or demon.

Narasimha was Vishnu's answer to Brahma's boon, as he was neither human nor animal, and was not a demigod or demon. He attacked Hiranyakashipu at twilight (neither day nor night) in the threshold of his courtyard (neither inside or outside of a house), pulling the rakshasa atop his thighs (neither in the sky nor on the ground), and disemboweled him with his very claws (which were neither animate nor inanimate, thus not being considered true weapons).

Just duoed this with Alsuwide (uber80blu) and me (ubermelee77whm/dnc) and my 63NPC. Pretty fun easy fight.. hits hard though. Got two hides. One each.. the way it should be.
Easy solo

Incredibly easy solo NIN/DNC. I did go red a few times when I wasn't counting shadows, but all in all he died in about 20 minutes even with me holding back TP.

My friend and I took this on duo and won. 66 nin 66 whm(me), but I was whm so I did very little compared to him ; ), just back up. Later on I tried to take it on with 75 mnk(me) 75 whm 66 nin. We didnt build tp, we lost, tried at a later date with 75 mnk(me) 75 whm 66 drk(my nin friend in taru form ^^). We built tp up, I used tp, then two hour to hold hate. Drk was doing his dd thing, his npc helped him and the whm out by healing him and his two hour helped as well. We won with Nara using a deadly hold the last hit before he died, that hit got me to 106 hp. Whm bene'd but it wasnt needed, he was dead lol. Good fun! Try Nara yourself! Fun fun fun.

Solo this guy 5 times now as 75bst. Basically just use torama around the area to kill him when pets gets load just keep cycling pet til the other ones pop back. Nothing hard , took me 30-40min to kill can't remember but wasn't that long about maybe 18-20 pet swap.He hits hard so always have blink and SS up , miss charming could be deadly But overall an easy NM , all 5x drop hide so i assume hide is 100%.

On seraph server. lv 75 bst
i was fighting this with a friend hoots lv 75 brd. we were doing great till at around 65% when i pet swapped and hoots had hate and got slapped by 3 hits and died. i carried on soloing narish when it was down to about 25% my friend noticed some of her ls were in the area so asked them for a raise (linkshell was TheOuterLimits) they came swiftly. instead of raiseing her. the proceaded to kill all torama in area ( saying they were xping) sigh such a lame excuse. i got narish to 2% with a 2hr courrie carrie jug pet. when a torama poed so it was my chance to grab it. runing towards it and there nin vokes it. narish used dealdy hold jug pet dies. pritty much screwed now as no pet so threw on all eva gear and ran to other side of room looking for a pet (call bst timer was at 2 mins) as soon as he came unclaimed they voked him and he proceded to slap me and i died. they killed him . i RR and they had the cheek to say it was a fair fight and they steal as peeps steal of them..... i highly doubt that.. btw there was 8 of TheOuterLimits ls present V myself and a dead hoots >.> fair fight indeed.
Very Easy

Was a Very Easy fight for a party of four farming manticore hairs.
Smn/Whm 73
Nin/War 70
Drk/Nin 75
Blm/Whm 75 < Me

Carby pulled, I stuck him w/ Blind, Paralyze, and Slow easily w/ 243 Enfeeb (220 Base + 21 Macroed in), and did basic melee elemental debuffs to help the Ninja. If you are a mage, I would not recomend meleeing him unless you are willing to lose all of your MP due to Riddle. It took me from 1024 to capped at 133. Just be ware of his MP reducing move and a good ninja can tank him no problem. Only other thing to watch out for is how much HP he has, my thunder IVs were doing about 1k and that only dropped his HP 3% at best.
We got 1 hide, gl w/ everyone else wanting to kill him.

Another NM I can officially say "owned" to.

Killed him while waiting for Ose and Hellion. {Too weak}
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

I am in a static. We were in Onzozo and someone in my pt said Narasimha popped. We were level 60 at the time and the WAR pulled this. Took us 45 minutes but we beat him. Our Ninja tank rarely ever took any damage. Narasimha is not that fast a mob. I do have pictures on my folder still of my pt fighting him. It was a lot of fun. He can be taken down by a pt of 6, just slowly.

Easily Triod with 2 nin's /mage and a thf lol all 74+
(Too Weak)... but hella fun
# Jul 16 2005 at 5:50 AM Rating: Excellent
This was easily trioed... lol here's the stroy.

I was helping my friend camp Mysticmaker Profblix, and after killing that we decided to call it a night. So, I'm lookin' for a chest up by the Toroma camps and I see this NIN(74) and WHM(66) duoing Narasimha. I /shrug and continue on my search.

I come back later to check the same area and see that the NIN is dead... (Hmmm.) Since he was JP I had to bust out my Autostranslate skills, and I asked him if he wanted to team up.

So, there we go, the 3 of us about to duo him. Well, I know this guy drops Hide which is worth 180k each on Lakshmi, but I just wanted the thrill of fighting :D.

We had a Light skillchain set up which even though I was doing 600+ Shark Bites it barely budged Narasimha's life lol. This sucker has a LOT of HP.

There was only one really scary part during the fight... and that is when I ended up tanking... /panic.

The NIN got screwed over, Narasimha ate through his shadows and used Deadly Hold on him RIGHT away which interrupted his casting and took him to about 110 life. That is to say, it took a Galk from full HP to 110 O.O. Anyway, before he could recast he got smacked once more and well ****, Narasimha's lookin' at me and has about 1/6 life left.

Right away I panic, it eats through my shadows and just to give myself some recoup time I throw up Perfect Dodge, (I probably didn't need to). His elemental move and stuff like Great Wind were the worst because they through shadows which caused me the most trouble.

After a few more Dancing Edges he falls over. We got 2 Hides and 4 Hair. Once the JP NIN was raised he paid me 100k for my help, which is more than I wanted/expected. Hope you enjoyed my story... and I'm submitting the pic of us trioing it incase you don't believe me. But, if you don't <^>(^.^)<^> lol J/k.
Nice pic

Heheh, nice to see a pic of the old-school black pearl ///TF///. Well, as part of the "new school" white pearl ///TF///, I pulled this guy with a couple friends (nin and rdm, both 75) while waiting for LoO to pop. Fairly easy fight; drops were 2 wind crystals and 2 narasimha hides. Needless to say a very productive day for nm camping- also managed to pull Ose (assault jerkin drop), Peg Powler (Schwartz axt, which I got but can't use yet ^^) and LoO (shall shells and water crystal = bleh).
Narasihma details.

Narasihma : Third Incarnation of the God Vishnu, Half man, Half Beast.
My info on NM fight: Easily duo'd by a skilled mage and 75thf/nin, hits for 100-300dmg, breath move 20-700, and has massive HP (10000+?)
Max drops so far: 4 Hairs, 2 Narasihma Hides, 2 Fangs, and wind crystals.

Beat him an an XP party. Setup was...

63 Nin/War
62 Rdm/Whm
63 Brd/Whm
62 Rng/Nin
62 Rng/Nin (me)
63 Mnk/War

Our Ninja took only a few hits. That heat move thingy for 500. and a few other special attacks. He blinked everything else and the only people that pulled hate were the Rngs and we blinked everything. Took about 15-20 Min maybe. Got 1 Narashima Hide and just decided to split it. We got 280 XP (for me at 62)

# Mar 24 2005 at 5:35 AM Rating: Decent
got 28 exp killing this thing in a 6 person pt ranging from 62-75

meaning this NM would be Decent Challenge to a lvl 75 which would make it lvl 69-72ish

Refresh is a RDM only spell for level 41. NIN main could never cast it... so was it solo or not?

Unless of course, you mean juice...

Was xping with some friends in Onzozo today when he popped. The party setup was:

63 Nin/War <- Me {All right!}
62 Rng/Nin
63 Thf/Nin
63 Mnk/War
63 Brd/Whm
63 Whm/Blm

Pulled him and killed him pretty easily really. Brd did March + Mambo and Whm kept haste on me. He never did any physcial damage to me. Heat Breath and Great Whirlwind of course hit, but where quickly fixed by a cure V from whm. Fight lasted around 15 - 20 minutes and we were rewarded with 212 xp, 1600 or so gil, a hide, 3 locks of hair, some crystals, and a hell of a lot of fun.

We had also killed Ose shortly before this. The other xp party there must have thought we were crazy. When we saw Nara had popped, one member in the other group said, "We could all alliance and die together." I would have loved to see their party chat when we killed it :p

fough this 3 times today pt stup was

64thf/nin (me)

first time we got aggro from a torama the nin died and we escaped. seond time the nin died from a fluke >.< and we escaped. The 3rd and final time that we fought him it took almost 15 minutes to kill him I got 48 exp and it dropped 2 hides and a wind crystal. This is a very fun nm to camp. He used max mp down about 6 times and 1 of our blms spent half the fight with no mp because of it.
