In Japanese mythology, the Amikiri were yokai (demons) that was said to have the head of a bird, the front claws of a lobster, and the body and tail of a snake. They would reportedly go around cutting mosquito nets, fishing nets, and laundry hung out to dry, hence the name Amikiri (in Japanese, Amikiri means "Net Cutter")

Of the 3 scorp nm's this is by far the toughest. I'm a 75 thf with 295 evasion and he didnt miss much. Tanking him isnt the problem, its his breath attack. Hits for 700-900. His WS include Manabite, Poison Sting, AOE, Bind, Paraylze. His evasion is pretty high so sushi is a must for meele.

I dont suggest sending in lots of meele, if this NM builds TP he will spam AOE and will cause trouble. The AOE resets hate. Best to get a nin/war and poke at it slowly or kite with blm.rdm & smn's.

GK seems to be 100%.

i've never seen claw drop but he's farily hard nm. I've only seen him straight up tanked 1 time and i really don't know how it was done. He attacks at reglular speed but does and AOE paralyze + dmg an AOE bind + dmg and just a regular aoe (i'm pretty sure). I've always beaten him w/5 or 6 ppl. nin,blm,blm,rdmw,whm,sam (sam just used WS when he had tp) we just killed him a few minutes ago... Tips: he is easily bound, builds resistance to grav fairly quick, and if u can kite him around the rock before bune's pop. it worked like a charm.
This an That

I really need a <pos> for this mob. Can anyone help me out?
# Apr 20 2005 at 1:29 AM Rating: Decent
i tried trioing this 2 blm 1 brd we wiped. we later p icked up more ppl. and killed it... This can't be duo'd or trio'd. Grav was a waste of mp after a while he builds resistance quite fast and bind is pretty reliable but only for a few seconds. I have capped enfeeb+35 as a 75 blm/rdm taru and my grav got resisted 1/2 way thru him a few times in a row. He also has a lot of hp.

The NM doesn't do AoEs if you kite him or do death scissors inless you get bounded otherwise if you kite have blm + rng hes really easy

He still drops claw. Killed him last night for the first time. He dropped Venomous Claw and that Rare/Ex G. Katana. It just must be a rare drop on the claw. We were just lucky I guess.

well, i can confirm that is a 100% drop as i have it and 2 other friends have it, all dropped on first try of course. he isnt extremely hard.. you will need 73+ melee or else they wont really be doing any dmg except for spirits within.

2 tanks is a must as death scissors will one shot and this guy hits very hard, double attacks and aoe's for quite a bit of dmg.

i as a 64 sam got aggro(spirits within) and went down in < 2 seconds.. double attack for 450 each and then aoe for over 300 to finish me off. as well as 2 75 pld went down, one to scissors and one to normal attacking.. ninja tanks.. in theory will do awesome on this guy, as a nin/war tanked after they died and was successful.

this guy has low hp, but very high evasion and defense and like i said earlier under 73 you are useless as a melee except for spirits, bring blm's.. they will destroy him... his hp is laughably low.

good luck :)

Killed him last night with my ls. He was fairly easy thanks to our nin tank equipto. At times he would do this AoE that damages everyone for around 200-500 hp and paralyzes them. We had 2 blms, brd, pld, nin, 2 thfs, rdm, and whm. I was a ranger along with another one in my ls. Our rng attacks did about 50-70 damage on him, EES did about 400 and Heavy Shot did around 300. The only time it was looking bad was toward the end when he did Death Scissors, with did over 2000 damage to our nin tank and instantly killed him. It looked like it went through blink? Anyways the biggest damage dealers were the blms, I cant remember but one of their spells did 800-1000 on him. It took maybe 40-50 min to kill. He dropped scorpion claw and shell, the GK, and earth crystal but no venomous claw. ><
