Historical Information

The Leviathan first appears in the Book of Job, 3:4, and was later described as a giant sea monster that was said to be up to three hundred miles in length and capable of expelling from his mouth a level of heat so intense that the waters of the ocean would boil.

It is said in Hebrew legend that, after the end of the world, the Leviathan will engage in a battle with the Behemoth and will kill one another. In alternate tellings of this legend, the Behemoth and the Leviathan will fight eachother, only to both be struck down by God.

Getting to this guy is hell. Me and a party all went to defeat this guy. Me the blm,whm, and even the tank got aggroed by those annoying pugils. Not sure how it happened but they did. Luckly the redmage and ranger got away. we all got Raise 1 which wasnt too bad. Then we all took our rage on leviathan. Killed him less than 3 min. He very easy if u have a nuke happy blm with ya.

FINALLY I have a pt to go fight this guy :D I'm so happy, he'll be my first avatar! Wish me luck - we'll be going on lightningsday, of course. But a quick question - I hear this guy is easier than garuda and shiva. Is this true?

This is the last Avatar I can fight until I get to a MUCH higher level, lol (I'm at 40 now). I just did the quests to get my Tensh. fame high enough so when Square-Enix get's done with their emergency maintainence (>.<) I will give it a shot. wish me luck!

My question is, what are the prize options for this one? Every Avatar fight has a list of prizes to choose from after the battle, including the option to summon said monster.

So whats the prizes?
RE: Prizes
# Oct 11 2004 at 7:46 PM Rating: Decent
You only get the prize option if you fight the high level party fight version of the avatar.

The prizes are:
-Leviathan's Rod
-Water Belt
-Water Ring
-Ability to summon Leviathan

some one told me that have the choice to do a lvl 20 solo fight, or a lvl 70 PT fight. is this right? and also do u have to be a SMN to kill him?

In order to claim this Avatar, you can fight either the lev 20 solo fight (you must be SMN for the fight), or the 60-70+ party fight (any job high enough lev).

In the solo fight, you get the ability to summon that avatar - in the higher level fight, you choose your prize (gaining that avatar is one of the options).

To get Fenrir, you must do all high lev party fights and keep the 'whispers' - once you have all whispers, you can trade for a special orb that unlocks the Fenrir fight (60-70+ party). Upon success you can unlock Fenrir, even if your SMN is only lev 1.
i got a way

norg fame
# Jul 14 2004 at 10:48 AM Rating: Default
who ever knew that raising fame for Norg (or Tenshodo) is such a pain?? Outside of Norg there are onlylike 2 quests that you can do to level fame.... anyone got a faster way?
RE: norg fame
# Aug 11 2004 at 1:10 AM Rating: Good
Once you have your Airship Pass, there's a third way. You can smuggle goods into Jeuno. This is actually the primary quest I did for Tenshodo fame. I did maybe 3 turn-ins of Zinc, and about half a dozen bead necklace turn-ins, along with the Rusty Leggings quest. Unless other factors raise your Norg fame - all the rest of mine came from smuggling, and I've recieved both Utsusemi, and Trial by Water.
Same thing

Where did you get lightningdy from?

Leviathan= water

days = fire > earth > water > wind > ice > ect..

I think he got ownd on waters day so they waited till windsday when he wasn't super powerful, then went in.
