It would often ambush any treasure seekers that stumbled upon its precious items by overturning the rocks it would hide them under.

We just finished a Farming Session (reason we had as many people as we did), which started out for 2 Skulls and a shot at Vouivre for my DRG.
When we got up there Voiuvre was not up(which sucked, since he is normally wandering around), so we started pulling Wyverns and figured we would work on getting skulls while waiting.
Killed 37 and got 6 Skulls.
Total Time about 3 Hours.
Voiuvre never poped.

Jobs were:

Paladin Tankable

Older posts stated that he hits too hard to be PLD tankable, but at least after the last round of paladin updates this is no longer the case. We went and took him down last Friday to get the polearm for our static's drg who had just dinged 68. Our setup was:
75 pld/war
75 drg/whm
75 brd/whm
75 rng/nin
75 rdm/whm
70 blm/whm

We took him down in around 10-15 minutes. I can't remember exactly how long, but as ranger I recall I was only able to get off two barrages, so it should be in that 10-15 minute range. Pld was easily able to tank the mob, we had one nasty moment where his HP dipped really low, and really only one other time that he even got into orange HP. We never had any issues with anyone's magic running low, and aside from a few weaponskills where I went trigger happy with my slug shots, we didn't really have issues with anyone else ever pulling hate. All in all a very fun fight.
too weak ; ;

We were out farming the skull for a level 60 bard friend of mine, we went out as a whole party however the only ones to make it to the camp were me (74thf/nin) and a level 75rdm/ninja. The bard waited at zone and everyone else got lost :)

but we could have easily killed him with just the 3

We descided to try killing the wyverns and found that it was no issue. We got the skull after 5 kills. We saw the NM and thought what the heck, both put reraise II up and were contemplating pulling him. A friendly 75blm/rdm wandered into camp and he joined up. With just 3 we pulled and had an awsome time :) after about 30 minutes we escaped out. The regen was way to fast and with no real voker the blm had to hold back ALOT. No one even hit yellow HP.

No real moral to this story, but it was fun all the same :)

A 75rdm/nin, are you kidding me? I think you mean a UBER 75rdm/nin! lol

Kyrrala isn't kidding tho, SATA ws did some dmg but, sadly it's regen was too fast. If the blm could of let loose we would of had an easy win, but sadly I'm just a lowly rdm/nin tank with no voke.

Oh, and everyone beware Kyrrala TP gain is Impossible to Gauge!

Had fun tonight Kyrrala let's do it again :D

Took this guy down about 10 minutes ago with:


All level 75. Only one MNK died, fight lasted a while but wasn't too bad. Then again we have a good ninja tanking him ^^. Somepage says this guy needs 18 ppl 70+ incase anyone cares, I found that rather amusing myself. Oh, and one last thing, Light SC did wonders on him. Asuran Fists > Raging Fists > Shark bite did about 2-3k in damage both times we used it. GL if anyone is trying this; with a good tank he ain't so bad.

This NM was up when we went to get a skull for someone. It was a Lv75NIN/WAR, Lv75MNK/NIN, Lv68RDM, Lv60-something SMN, a BRD that was /anon and me (70BST/WHM).

We decided we'd clear the Wyverns out and then fight him. I charmed and 2hr'd a VT Ash Lizard. The NIN and the Ash Lizard were the only ones that fought it 100% of the time. The MNK would build his TP and disengage for multiple boosts and then jump in and close the SC. I let the my Pet build 300TP before unleashing... *drumroll* Secretion, lol. It never used an offensive attack once. ;;

Once we got it to 25% HP or so, the SMN 2hr'd and used Fenrir. It used a lot of TP moves, but since only the NIN, MNK and Lizard were fighting it, we did didn't give it as much TP as we could have. I wouldn't do enough damage to it to make up for the TP it would gain, so I was a back-up healer/status-remover. The RDM Dispeled whenever it EVA boosted, debuffed it and kept Protect on the NIN whenever it would use Dispelga. The NINs HP hit yellow twice once and orange once which was quickly met with my Cure3's and Cure4. Other than that, she didn't get hit much at all.

I kept watching my 2hr timer and overall the fight lasted 29minutes. I had less than one minute before my Pet turned on me from my 2hr. We got everything this guy drops I think: skin, wing, scales, 3 or 4 Wind Crystals and the Gae Bolg.

Overall it was a very fun fight. We didn't know if we could actually take him or not, but we took him down with no problems whatsoever. IOt was a long fight, but not once did we ever feel like things might go bad. If anyone reading this ever plans on fighting him, make sure the people that do not hit for much stay out of the fight if you have a NIN tank or it's TP moves will make short work of them. Good luck.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that a NIN and RDM could probably duo this thing. It would be a very, very, VERY long fight, but it could likely be done and it would probably be the easiest way. Dispel from the RDM helps tremendously. And with the NIN being the only one fighting, it wouldn't gain TP so fast and that's the key to making this a very easy fight. Not short, but easy.

Hey Clim, it's Kao ^^. Loads of fun last night! The SMN was 66 and the BRD was 67.

I've been out there with a 75 WHM and the same BRD. We took him down to around 90%, but gave up after awhile cuz it'd take forever to get his HP down. If I load up on accuracy gear, I'd bet I'd be able to hit him consistently enough to counter his strong regen. When my misses stacked up, we'd be at at standstill or he'd regen a fair amount of HP. Could be done I think with a RDM NIN duo, but would indeed take a very very very very long time...

Hey Kao. You did a great job tanking him last night. I had no idea of the levels of Coop and Lon. =/

Wouldn't Bio2 take care of his HP Regen enough to where the NIN would do enough damage over his natural HP Regen? That's more of what I was thinking whe I say a NIN and RDM duoing him. I don't think Dia2 would tick for enough to be as effective as Bio2, though I could be wrong. I think you only got hit 3 or 4 times during that fight total, so I've no doubt you and a RDM could duo it (RDM/BST 4tw!). Sure, it would take a very long time to duo him, but that's where the fun is! Took me over 2hrs to take down the San Mission 6-1 NM Cactaur and I can honestly say it's the most fun I've had in the game so far... well, our Tyrannic Tunnock excursion was quite entertaining as well, lol.

like so many other stories, we started as a skullfarming party for crown. It was:

73whm (Moi)

we were able to get him down to about 10% no problem whatsoever..and then...

when he gets down to about 10-15% he starts SPAMMING dispelling wind, which is a huge pain in the ***. Our two mnks actually stole hate from him so much that invincible wouldnt distract him. after the first mnk died and the blm died it was escape time.

between paralyzega, dispelga and his high attack in general id recommend either using a ninja tank or bringing more than 6 people. the lance drop sucks anyway. we actually just fought it for the sake of fighting him.

killed this bad boy last night. we were out farming skulls and he was up so we took him on. party was 75 nin, 75 whm, 70 brd, 70 war, 70 thf. fight took almost 2 hours...would have been a bit shorter but the war & thf didnt have sushi on them. whoops!

one or two close calls with the nin hitting low red hp but overall a pretty safe fight. gae bolg dropped for the nin too ^^

Well... I was in Ifrits a.k.a. hell last night helping out with Opo-opo killing Huricane Wyv. we see em pop setup was...75+28 merits, 75DRK+11merits (me), 75DRG, 72 BRD, 75 SMN. No deaths, I was parsing the fights so now I knkow he has around 43K HP but we did it with 5 got the Gae Bolg. He really is a ***** IMO, he was hitting me for like 180 on normal attacks.

I'm a galka so I wasn't holding back much, the NIN has something like 293 EVA skill so he was str8 Enmity. got down to 100 HP twice I<3stun He wasn't hard to kill, just like all HNM gotta get that HP outta the way. Long story short...if you have a pty of 5 or 6 75's or so and you know the ppl are HQ players take em on.

Anyone on Fairy and has a bored LS can help me get my Gae Bolg^^;. I want to get this before I hit 68, which seems unlikely, so I can use this once I hit 68. Same applies for my Assualt Jerkin but both aren't too likely.

This guy is a wuss.

I never bothered fighting him until just a few hours ago. I always preferred my Colossal Lance over Gae Bolg, and still do.

Beat this guy with 2x 75WHM, 75RDM, 75PLD, 75BLM, 75SMN, 75DRG(me), 65WAR, 64MNK, 64SAM, 60DRG.

The PLD tanked it solo. No Utsusemi, no back up tank, never even hit orange HP.

The SMN was doing Predator Claws, MNK was charging up Chi Blast, I was mostly using Leg Sweep for Stun, BLM moderately nuking, WHMs taking turn on healing, BLM kept Bio II on him to counter Regen, the SAM and WAR were whiffing like crazy, as well as the DRG who was there.

People make this guy out to be bigger than he is. He was a joke, and I am a little dissappointed, I was hoping for a good fight.

Rykielz your party must have been really weak or something. My took this lizard down with a party of 6 and he was easy too because never once where we even close to losing. We had Nin DRG THF WHM BLM BRD <--- me. Too like 40 minutes but it was a easy fight. Done this before the last patch so I doubt if there was a ungrade.
Vouivre way harder
# Jun 09 2005 at 4:54 AM Rating: Decent
I dunno if SE upgraded this thing or what. But I brought 15 people at one point to fight this thing and it was way harder then any of you make this out to be. I had 1 NIN, 2 WHM, 2 BLM, 1 DRG, 1 RNG, 1 DRK, 1 SAM, 2 RDM, 1 BRD, 1 BST, 1 THF, and 1 PLD. Now we got it to 1/3 hp but the Auot-regen III is a *****. It stayed at 1/3 hp for an hour and the fight was a stale mate then it got a fang rush that criticaled and killed our NIN. PLD quickly took hate and we got the NIN up. Problem was the NIN couldn't get hate back even with the THF SATAing the light SC on him and him constantly voking. Well the wyvern did a double attack into a fang rush and the PLD died so after that it immediately went after the mages and it went downwards from there, mages died and we were slowly picked off one by one until we wiped completely. We pulled it into the safe area so we wouldn't get any adds which we didn't. If a NIN tanks this he needs silena and paralyna a lot whenever Vouivre does an AoE. I dunno what happened, but this is by far not an easy fight and it hits for 400+ on me as a DRG and that's without a critical. Also doesn't have true sight so you can invis/sneak past it. GL to whoever fights this, not an easy fight anymore SE must've upgraded it.

Lol Ryk... I was reading this post thinking "OMG that's exactly... EXACTLY what happened to us!" I then looked at the poster's name (you) and well... it was us. -_- LOL, that was fun; let's do it again sometime if you're still Gae Bolg-less. Let's hope for a different outcome on the next run. ~_O

I'm not positive, but it could have had much higher regen depending on the day you fought it. For instance, Kirin on Earthsday has a much higher regen then on any other day. That could've been the case here.
