Tonberry Kinq Picture

It seems this Tonberry is jokingly called “King” because of the crown he bears, but the details are unknown.

Some/all of the information in this article has been culled from various FFXI guides, and translated by Elmer the Pointy.

Finally popped him after I don't know how many hours of intermittent farming attempts. Tonberry Kinq (yes, it's a q) provided no challenge for a SAM75/37THF. I was prepped to 2-hour but didn't even have the chance as the fight was over too quickly. Starting with 220 TP I used Sekkanoki Y-> G and the Fragmentation killed him off (I was taking a screenshot or two before the SC so factor in another ~600 damage from melee) Interestingly, the Kinq never Astral Flowed. Granted, I dove on him before he could summon an avatar but normally SMN NMs will auto-summon a random avatar for their 2-hour *shrug* Suppose if you kill him fast enough it won't be an issue ^^

Drops were 28,054 in gil (w00t!), Coat, Lantern, and Water Spirit Pact. No Light Spirit but the gil and sense of accomplishment of finally camping him successfully were worth the time spent.

Edit: And yes, he spawns directly on top of the little throne in the room

They typo'd the name, lol. It's KING Tonberry, not KINQ
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

If you mean mini quest: dude, you can trade the fork to the quest guy and he'll warp you to the crystal.

or he could just be one of the many many many 75rdm/nin's that solo avy's. oh kujata, just send a tell to basically any 75rdm, and they'll do it for 100k

Well I doubt a 75 rdm/nin would die in one hit by ze Tonberry Kinq

The party I was with just did ZM4 and found him walking around outside, we took him and he dropped a Light Spirit Pact. Thought you might want to update his drop information.

I was doing Summoner AF coffer when it popped behind the Tonberry Kinq. After opening the coffer and dying, a 75WHM (Toby) and 60SMN (Izzy) myself decided to duo it, we pulled the elemental seperate from the Kinq, so we didnt have to fight both. About half way through the fight, the Kinq used Astral Flow and Ifrit came out of the wall and Inferno'ed us. We both survived and killed him. Dropped Tonberry Coat and Lantern and like 9k gil each. It's Tonberry KINQ not KING for future refrence ^^.

This NM uses Astral Flow. Ifrit comes out and uses Inferno.

No, SMN NMs have an elemental, just like normal SMN mobs. The only difference is, whether or not you kill the elemental, the NM can and will use Astral Flow. When they do this, they summon a (sometimes) random avatar (like insta-cast summon) and it does its Astral Flow move, then disappears. It does this whether you've killed the NM's elemental or not (i.e. even if the elemental is right there, the avatar will come out at the same time to use it's 2hr then disappear).

While I had an alliance doing ZM4, one of the pts found this bugger as the exited the BCNM. It aggroed em, so they took it on. Didn't drop anything too great, but hell, they killed a king, the THF mugged a crapload of gil, and it dropped them like 5000 gil each. And after getting mauled by Tungs'iton's 2-hr, they were all glad to maul a tonberry right back...

It's a NM so my guess is that it can summon a avatar =)

It says that this mob is a summoner? If it is, does anyone know what it can summon? More tonberries? Ifrit? ...Odin?

Yagudo summoners in Saurumongue have elementals as pets.
