Seiryu in Ru'Aun Gardens

Seiryu's ??? Location
Seiryu's ??? Location

  • Spawned from trading a Gem of the East and a Springstone to the ???. This ??? will respawn 15 minutes after Seiryu is defeated or de-spawned.

  • When spawned, Seiryu's melee attacks will have an additional Wind Damage effect to them. This effect cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed by hitting Seiryu with the Zephyr ranged weapon.

Seiryu Special Attacks

  • Aeroga III: AoE Wind based magic damage. (Circle of effect originates from the spell target)

  • Aero IV: Strong single target Wind based magic damage.

  • Tornado: Strong single target Wind based magic damage.

  • Choke: Single target Wind based DoT with an additional Vitality down effect.

  • Dispelling Wind: AoE Dispel effect (Circle of effect originates from mob).

  • Fang Rush: Strong single target three hit physical attack.

  • Radiant Breath: Frontal cone AoE Light based magic damage with additional Silence and Slow effects.

  • Dread Shriek: AoE Paralysis effect (Circle of effect originates from mob).

  • Deadly Drive: Strong single target physical attack.

  • Tail Crush: Single target physical attack with additional Poison effect.

  • Wind Wall: Self target Evasion boost (Effect can be dispelled).

  • Hundred Fists: Self target potent Attack speed increase (Effect cannot be dispelled). Denoted by the characteristic mob two-hour animation.

    • Recommended strategy is to either Shadowbind Seiryu and move everyone out of melee range, or for a Paladin to use Invincible or Sentinel.

Seiryu in Shrine of Ru'Avitau

  • Significantly lower HP than the Seiryu spawned in Ru'Aun Gardens.

  • Shares the entire ability set with the Seiryu spawned in Ru'Aun Gardens.

  • Does not drop anything.

Historical Information

Qing Long (Seiryu in Japanese) is one of the four symbols of the Chinese Constellations, representing the "Azure Dragon of the East" and of the season of Spring. The other three symbols being the "Black Tortoise of the North", the "White Tiger of the West", and the "Vermillion Bird of the South"

Each symbol corresponded to an element in the Five Element system, with Qing Long corresponding to the element of wood.

  • In the Five Element system in China, there is a 5th legendary beast known as Huang Long, the Yellow Dragon of the Center. While there is no direct equivalent in Japanese, Huang Long is believed to be linked to the dragon Ouryu

Stupid dragon i hate it so much, took it on today with a not ideal set up, 2 pld/nins (i was one) 2 rdm/drk 2whm 1 blm 1 smn and some dd i think 14 of us.
This is probably the 20th time we have fought him, my ls leader got the martial head on about fight 10 and today i really believed it was my day. Word of advice dont try this without a RNG. We did get the win, I think i died 5 times a lot of kiting was used but we managed to kill him somehow.

Did it drop my abjuration?


I really Hate this stupid dragon.

sorry for mentioning it again but i just realy neaded to vent.

M head
# Apr 10 2006 at 4:12 AM Rating: Decent
I've fought this thing tons of times. The hardest drops for it is d-log, m head, and S cloth. Took me 30 times fighting it to finally have M head drop for me 8/. Whoever says this is a common drop is nuts. Have yet to see S cloth either, and I've merely only heard of it dropping D log.

Who else noticed the guy in the picture doesnt have protect on, must've lost =p.

Lol it's because Seiryu uses Dispelling Wind all the time. And the only time I remember that we lost to Seiryu was a year ago where most people weren't even 75.

Maybe its because hes not fighting it, the name is purple. probly there to watch or something, not smart but not all people in FFXI are
RE: Ultima VS Seiryu
# May 09 2005 at 4:06 PM Rating: Decent
Actually when in an alliance, even if you are fighting it, the mob's name will go purple sometimes when another party in the same alliance hit it last. So he almost certainly IS fighting it as well.

I'm pretty sure the name goes purple when someone in one of the other parties has hate (and it's so annoying with <bt> too)

# Nov 06 2005 at 12:09 AM Rating: Decent
he's a wyvern, he uses dispelling wind (or whatever it's called), it probably took the protect off....
# Mar 23 2005 at 3:49 PM Rating: Decent
Seiryu can be a pain-in-the-*** but if you manage hate well, hes easy. My LS normally fought him with 4 Rangers at a time, but did it with 6 and Seiryu seriously got owned.
# Mar 20 2005 at 8:35 PM Rating: Decent
W00t go Valefor, I know those people >.> well some of them, lol, and who needs protect when you have signet? Signet beats all!
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 03 2005 at 4:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well... actually... Signet sucks when fighting gods... do you really want crystals instead of drops... yeh... thought so.. kthnx

not to mention, you need signet to activate any "Nation's Control" items, such as Master Caster's Bracelets, and the like.

I am 99.9% certain that crystals drop in adition to normal drops, not in place of them, so yes signet rules all.

yea crystals only drop if you have signet and have no effect on the other drops, its just cuz ur rolls sucked if you got less. But yea, u get crystals based on how many people have signet nd the rolls you had for them. Also like mentioned above, you need signet for all gear that has conquest effects. kthanxbai.

when fighting a dragon go below the wings not in front not on back just below the wings, i'm not sure if this uses some kind of flame like fafnir does, and if you go behind it is gonna wipe you with the tail, and even if the lvl cap is raised to 100 you wont be able to solo this, just take a look at roc, simurgh and king athro, those are lvl 55-60 mobs and take a party of 75 or 18 65-70 people
