No one really hunts this so basically you can kill the ph and coe back 15 min. later to kill it. The tail is 100% drop
Exciting Fight

Killed this guy today as 61THF/30NIN. Was a very hectic fight, because when I pulled him a Rivulet (WHM) and a Brook (DRG) Sahagin linked. I was spamming Bloody Bolts and Utsusemi, and quite a few times I thought I was gonna die. Used Perfect Dodge too at one point. Whenever I got TP I used Dancing Edge on the Rivulet until he was dead, then when he died the fight became a lot easier. I spammed Bloody Bolts still, since my HP was quite low, but Utsusemi was a lot easier to keep up, and the NM was already pretty low on health. Killed it and got the Mermaid Tail, then killed the Brook Sahagin (still no Mermaid Head, and I've been killing Brooks for quite awhile now ~_~;;). I also mugged the NM for 385 gil (low amount for an NM, but whatever), and he dropped 739 gil. Also gave 32 experience (the Brook and Rivulet Sahagins gave 15 exp each).

Defeated as 60 PLD/ 15 THF. I spent about 2.5 hrs camping him and died once from linking sahagins while killing the placeholders. He popped, grabbed him, won, got 14 xp, 784 gil, and the tail. The NM is pretty easy, but it likes to spam Magic Finale.

This quest is getting damn annoying. I managed to get all the pieces then I went to Yunghoto Jungle on Windsday @ 0:00 to trade my items with Peddlerox. At which time he gave me a spot to where there was "treasure". I logged out for a bit and got back around 5:00 Windsday so ok, no luck. I camped the spot for a few hours (farming inbetween) checking back from 20:00-4:00~ nothing, no spawn, no ???. I looked up more information and saw a site say you need to have a chocobo and dig. Went back with a chocobo and dug~ nothing.

Anyone know this quest? Any suggestions?

Really really late response, but incase anyone else reads this or has the same problem, there will be no NPC target to dig at. I suggest zooming up as close as you can go on your map and making sure the head of your chocobo would be 'on' the map marker and try digging around there. It's trial and error so bring additional greens, and good luck

Where is it?

I know exactly where it pops, and have been killing placeholders for meaby 5 honest hours.

Yet still, I can't seem to ever catch him, the Mermaid Body and Head were easier to get then getting this guy to pop. Although, many people tell me it's the otherway around.

I'll try again soon T.T;

Toated this guy as a 60drk/30sam. It took some effort clearer all 4 of the mobs there without having them aggro me all at once, but when I took on Seww 1 on 1 i had about 60% of my health left when I finished him.

I was down in the Grotto the other day helping my roommate hunt the NM for Raise II. There were three of us: 55 War/Nin (me), 55 Whm/Blm (roommate), 75 Thf/Nin. While we were looking for where the NM for the raise scroll spawned we stopped to look at the map. When I closed my map I saw this thing run past me and start attacking the Thf (who was just standing there) then I realized that it had a strange name. Since it aggroed a level 75 player I was a little hesitant to attack it, but I figured I had no other choice (our Whm fell off the ledge by accident so we had no means of escape or healing). Surprisingly enough this guy is extremely weak:

SATA Dancing Edge for 850 -> Rampage for 780 -> Scission for 375 -> a few more melee hits = Dead NM

For an NM that aggroed a high level Thf this guy was a push over (^_^)b

I fought Seww at BST62, got 11xp with a pet, which works out to 16xp without, or EP -13, or level 49. He aggroed me, which surprised me, since nothing else behind the Silver door does now.

14xp to a level 63 also works out to level 49.

3 ppl party

rdm36 (for healing only)

very easy match

rng pulled, rng sidewinder -> thf sneak+viper -> rdm blizzard and then just a few more hits

i think we're talking roughly 3k HP here...

8 exp, +200 gil and we did get the drop.

Was fairly easy to kill, didn't even need my trusty staff. :\ No drop though. It used Foe Reqiem IV, so definately a bard no question about it.

No idea if it even has a drop to speak of, but meh. Another filthy beastman taken down~
oh yeah..

i could have definitely solo'd this as a mithran level 57 thf/nin. he only hit me 3 times. unfortunately, there are many links. when he was pulled, he linked a whm sahagin. while we were fighting, another sahagin popped. and then finally a crab popped.

fortunately, utsusemi and capped evasion owned all of them. level 57 thf/nin and level 51 whm/brd took these guys out.

This guy is a bard. We saw him use Dextrous Etude, etc as well as Foe Requiem IV. He does aggro though, as well as link with the surrounding Sahagin. Nevertheless, he was very easy with 60 BLM 60 RDM 61 WHM. He dropped 208 gil and the mermaid tail. The mermaid tail is Rare/ex. "This shriveled tail is often mistaken for that of a mermaid. However, it is simply the mummified remains of a pugil, used by the Sahagin when bartering with the pirates of Norg."

Very easy, no trouble with 56 DRK, 56 BLM, and 62 RNG.
Somewhat difficult without the BLM, but still relatively easy.
Probobly possible alone as DRK if Blood Weapon and Souleater is used, with WHM sub.

This is annoying to camp since there's no definite camp spot... best to just kill the mobs as soon as they pop to keep reasonable space.

It's easy I killed it with my lvl 59 SMN, I love Ifrit ^^.
# Apr 01 2004 at 11:46 PM Rating: Decent
I was easily able to solo this thing at lvl 63. I got about 14 xp I think it was so that would make the mob around 56 maybe?
# Mar 24 2004 at 3:23 AM Rating: Excellent
Also drops Mermaid Tail for Mermaid Ring quest.
