Easy Solo
# Oct 08 2007 at 3:32 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, so I got bored and decided to go kill this dude for the axe he drops (not that I'll ever use it). Killed the 3 scorps in his room and next pop he spawns right on top of me. Took him down with about 30 pet swaps.
The only danger in this is charming the raptors if you don't have enough CHR and just plain dodging aggro. Once you let a few pets die off though aggro is easily avoided. BST/NIN btw.
No claw :(

Happy BSTing!

Well, I'm on my way to Nightmare Bats to see if I can get myself some Dragon Blood when I see this guy. I'm BLU/NIN, so I figure "Why not give it a shot?" It was a rough fight, but I ended up getting him down to 55%, and I probably could have kept going, but at this point, I had 7MP. Long story short, I died. Could have killed him if I didn't run out of MP, so I'd say maybe with some Yag drinks, or duoing with a RDM, it would have been done.
Soloed/ with my npc depending on your idea of soloing

Just Soloed this babyas a 75 nin/war yesterday he put up a very good fight ws cold breath does around 500 dmgand goes through shadows earther pounder about 128 eats shadows Wild rage kills all shadows and does around 100 dmg No drop but hoping for better luck next time. There's a safe spot where u don't arrgo bombs on one side before the tunnel to Lindworm also where u won't get arrgo if u kill PH before NM. Takes about 12 minutes for a ninja to solo. Suggest Antidotes maybe use food I didn't though.

Confirming V Claw
# Jul 11 2007 at 2:35 AM Rating: Decent
Killed it recently, and to re-confirm for anyone who has doubts, he does still drop a V Claw. ~ Duo'd with a NIN/WHM (myself on RDM/BLM). ParalyzeII and SlowII mess this thing up, and i imagine BlindII would really help lower its 'allready low' accuracy.


1/1 overall, incredibly lucky, shame deflation hit and it isn't worth 10mil anymore :/.

Just duod the other night, myself as 75 Blm and 75 Nin. We had no problem at all, it almost never got through the ninja's shadows and didn't do too much damage through it's TP moves. That is the key to winning this fight, is having as few melee as possible, and not giving him TP to use on people.

I just enfeebed the mob a bit, and did some DoT to him, including Frost Bio 2 and Poison 2(which always got resisted) and the Ninja just wore him down over time. Didn't take long, and we pwnd it hard core! Got the Lohar for my warrior, was good stuff! GL

Just solo and killed it as THF/NIN, was FUN fight. I just no engage and only range attack on it, when get TP100 just engage and WS, do it again and again. Took me like 40min to kill. It miss me alot, my Evasion skill is 284+27 ( Boxer Mantle, Mst.mitts and Evasion torgue ).
SMN solo

I tried to solo him today as a 75 summoner, only got him down to about half HP. Eclipse Bite was hiting for about 700 dmg. If I had brought more drinks, maybe I would have won, hard to say. I may try again once I have more merits and better gear, cause the placeholders are too weak. All I had on me was 1 Yagudo Drink & Astral Flow. Teamed up with a War, Thf & Rdm after I died to kill him. No drop of V. Claw. Thanks for the fun, Rogue, Roc & Kyow. ^^

Just killed this thing today it wasn't an easy fight but it wasn't hard. Killed it with a 75NIN/THF and 75RDM/NIN(me) he does paralyze a lot but not so much aoe and you can land enfeebs on him really easy, again he wasn't super easy but he wasn't hard you just have to make sure and not mess up too much.

Too weak lol
Venemous claw; the truth?
# Apr 02 2006 at 2:29 PM Rating: Default
Can anybody post a screenshot that actually says:

"(Person) defeats Tryannic Tunnok".
"You find a venemous claw on Tyrannic Tunnok."
"(Person) obtains a venemous claw."

I think it would help to clarify if the mob actually drops the claw or not. ^^;

Solod Twice. 71BST/WHM35 and then 72BST/WHM36

Hardest Fight I ever had. Only reason for this is the Bombs and Goblins that are all around. Took a lot of work not getting aggro.


Deaths: 0

My LS got word that this guy was up, so we grabbed who we could and tried to take him down. Group was 75PLD/NIN, 75PLD/WAR, 75NIN/WAR, 75THF/NIN, 75WHM/BLM (me). We managed to get him down to 9%, but we eventually wiped. A big part of our problem was simply that we were giving him too much TP. Myself and the PLDs being the only healers, and with no Refresh... the TP attacks owned us. His Numbing Breath would do about 300 or so damage, and his Cold Breath did about 500. Earth Pounder was fairly weak, but stripped shadows; same with Wild Rage. I had Reraise III up, but used it shortly after dying in the middle of the fight. I didn't put it back up after reraising because I was trying to keep the remaining people alive, so when we wiped we had to call another WHM out to raise us. Before he got there though, 3 JP NIN/WHMs came along and killed the thing, so we didn't get to try a rematch. :/

RE: duo
# Mar 25 2006 at 2:31 AM Rating: Decent
Yup, just duo'd this sucker with a rdm and im a 74 thf
# Feb 10 2006 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
Duo'd it. 75nin/war 67whm/blm

Easy fight. I only got hit a couple times from AoE w/e pounder. Turned around to stop giving it tp so whm could recover MP for haste, protect, w/e. Overall easy fight just have to be on the ball, and keep debuffs on it.

Whm, Gwendy, did a good job of flashing after pounder move so I could recover shadows.
trio (kinda)

mnk took care of bombs to allow me and the bst free passage to kite (and so the bst can charm scorps all over to send at him)

i sent out garuda for pred claws once in a while, and carby to hold out until bst can find a new pet

was an overall fun fight

the bst tried to solo him before i came, he got it to half then aggro (he coulda done it)

then he reraised, invited me, and i tried to do pred claws every minute or so, but that ended in failure and both of us dying, so the monk came after that

then we finally beat him, after many close calls and about 30-40 mins of work, but we did it :)

no V-claw, we were bummed, but it was a fun fight

Duo'd this last night with a NIN. 75NIN/WHM and 70BST/WHM. The NIN (Kaouri) did great. I charmed and 2hr'd T Sulfur Scorpion and played pseudo-WHM with about 200MP. Tunnok got nasty when it had like 25% HP left and spammed a lot of skills, but nothing really major at all. No Venomous Claw, but I got the Lohar.

No real strategy here other than to just beat the NM up. The NIN kept Stoneskin up all the time to help with the damage from it's evil skills. I simply Paralyna'd, Erase'd, Regen'd, Barstonra'd and Cure'd every now and then while I left my Pet fight.

The fight didn't last too long. I didn't get a time on how long it took, but, after we killed him, we sat around for about 10mins thinking of something else to do, we walked out of Ifrit's to the OP in Yhoator, screwed around in Bastok gather some items, OP warped to Li Teilor and went to join some more peeps to fight Ancient Goobbue and I still had 1hr left on my 2hr. So I'd estimate the Tunnok fight took 15minutes give or take 5 minutes.

So, to all you NINs and BSTs out there, go duo this NM. It's a very fun fight. Good luck.

Ok, he definitely does drop the V-claw. We were on our way through Ifrit's Cauldron for ZM5 and saw this guy. We decided to take him out for fun and boom!... a V-claw drops. We were pretty shocked. Anyway, thats a nice mil for everyone after all is said and done.
# Nov 24 2005 at 3:02 PM Rating: Decent
75 MNK/NIN, 75 WHM/BLM, and myself 75 RNG/NIN trio this whenever he pops while mining, quite easy. Most BSTs attest that it is difficult to solo, hence, it will often be up unclaimed. 0/4 on V-Claw.
got it today

Word to the wise: If you have lots of melee on him, he spams WS like c-r-a-z-y, I was tanking as 74THF/37NIN and in a matter of about 15-20 seconds he erased my shadows with Earth Pounder, missed me once with Death Scissors, then immediately used death scissors again and destroyed me.

Someone with /whm is a must for paralyna, barblizzara would also help, cold breath did 500 damage to me @.@

He isn't all that hard though...he rarely got me with shadows down and my evasion is underleveled at 235, you just need some people who don't /panic under pressure.
Solo at 75?
