Pahh the Gullcaller Picture

A young female of the Zuhnro tribe, she has a strange fascination with human society. She relies of the efforts of seagulls and wyverns to bring her information back from human cities. Of course, her proud heritage as a Sahagin prevents her from showing any mercy to intruders.

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

My UN-luck with Pahh

Had to create an account here just to tell this story.

Wanted this spear bad fer DRG, so me (59DRG/SAM) and a friend (60PLD/DNC) started hunting it.
First time through the Mythril door he was up, so we re-raised and tried him somewhat unprepared just to feel him out, and he brought a link with him, and we died. Re-raised/rested and a 75 DRG walked by and offered to help us kill it, so we do and HE DROPS!.....so I cast lot.....fer 20pts and thought whatever b/c everyone is passing.....until my friend accidently hits up on his controller and lots it fer 625, thus taking it on me. He though it was no biggie and he could just trade it to me...until he realized it was rare/ex...so he has a shiny new Calamar for himself.

Needless to say he felt like crap for it and decided he wasnt leaving the area until we got it again, so we hunker down and start killing everything around Pahh's pop point. So we finally get it again after about 2hrs and this time a 75 THF with TH3 happened by to help us so we figured it was likely to definite drop......no drop.

We call it a day, get back on day after go at it again. Pop him and kill him ourselves using 2 hrs, no drop......4th pop and 2 ppl swoop in and take him on us but invite me fer drop.....no drop............1 more pop last night after 3 hrs of killing PH's and again no drop.

So far we are 1/5 and now its almost not worth having the spear anymore with Dark Mezraq available at 60....but I still want it out of spite now lol.

Anyway FYI it seems to be anywhere from a 1-4 hr pop time if you keep killing all the Hags around the 3 little rooms just past the mythril door. It does Spinning fin a fair bit which stuns decently to lvl 60ish .
Yay, another NM that doesn't drop for me...

Yeah... Came in the area, he was up.
He aggroed me first, which was fine, but there was an immediate link. The link was weak, but he didn't do me any favors stripping my shadows.

Truth be told, I got as low as 200... Had to use two hour (Monk), and kill the stupid link. After that, he was easy enough to shadow tank.
Thankfully, my Rasetsu pants kicked in (And on Iceday...), so he was fairly immobilized long enough for me to put up an Ichi.

35 EXP, 3600 gil... And a Quus. Wee.
Better update those drops! ... {/sigh}

Solo'd as a 75 rdm, got 23 xp and 3,600 gil. Took a little while, much harder than the mobs around it ( thats not saying much though ) I straight tanked with SS+Phalanx, since i didn't feel like putting up utsusemi >.>
Estimate that it has around 3x the amount of HP as the coffer mob in the area, and its job is most likely Drg
I was only here for the coffer key, and as i was typing this, i just got the drop :)
Rather easy

It wasnt too hard really..links sucked cause i was blu/thf but i managed cal;amr droped 1/2...just killing it when i see it for the 5.5k gil :D . im not a drg expert so idont know if this is a good polearm, but it looks nice, like a trident (i dont level any jobs that use it so i just toss it)
Happy huntings-
Soloed with links

I was fighting normal mobs near the area and then saw Him pop, I changed my target to the NM and fought it, On the way to the NM i ended up linking another mob So i had the NM and 2 normal mobs on me, Pretty easy fight, Was 75 NIN at the time, Just keep him debuffed and you'll be fine, took me down to around 700 HP.
hard hitter

Made 4 attempts yesterday at trying to kill this NM. First try was DRK/THF and I claimed him after he'd already made quick work of a SMN. This was a rather short fight since i stopped paying attention for 2 seconds and when I look again I'm dead. lol
Changed sub-job to WHM then gave it another try with as many buffs as I could give myself. After a link from a Bob Sahagin pop I got took out real fast and that SMN from earlier came back and ran off with my NM ><. After reraising and resting to full the NM starts moving back towards the spawn point. Guess he K.O.'d the SMN again so I engage and go all out for round 3. After a few spell interuptions and some poor Drain's I 2 hour. Thanks to the wonderfull delay on scythes I may have got 3 shots in before Blood Weapon was gone. I had him down to 1% health when he killed me then low and behold a BST comes along with a BlubberEyes and kills him. Grrrrrrrr........
This guy has a powerfull Hydro-shot that was hitting me for about 200dmg even with barwatera up. He also has a Jumping Thrust move that hit me for 250+ sometimes. Do not underestimate this NM. His normal attacks are not so bad, but his special attacks will drop your health quickly.
no drop

Me and a friend were going eye hunting, and there was a guy soloing crabs and he pointed at this thing.

After I go check what it drops we decide to fight it hoping for Siren's hair.

Rather easy fight with NIN and SAM and the endless SC's we did. Got a crystal, Calamar and a jellyfish. He gave me the Calamar, I carry it around a lot to look cool and am one of the few people I have ever seen with it, I imagine a lot of people have it because people do actually camp it on Midgard all the time.
Phew, that was scary!

In regards to the below post I would say his spawn is 1-2.5 hours after death.

I finally claimed him for the first time this evening as a 65 ninja. By far one of the scariest fights I've fought. Hydro shot is a killer because sometimes it absorbs multiple shadows. For soloing this NM as a ninja, Jubaku is a must, I'm near positive that is what saved me. Make sure to watch when it wears. I also used Kurayami, I'm sure Hojo would help too, didn't have any on me at the time. It was risky of me to try to take him on seeing as how somepage lists him as level 69 but I wanted to see if I could. It was a -very- close call, HP was in red. No siren's hair, a cobalt jellyfish, water crystal, 3600gil, and 41 experience.
Lottery time
# Feb 26 2006 at 2:22 PM Rating: Decent
Is this guy a complete random lottery or does he have a window in which he pops, IE 2-4 hours after death?

I've tried camping him, but I keep getting disrupted by RL to get a good pattern on him.

lol there were some people hunting this guy, but they got d/c and in 10mins, it poped. I was thinking if i should fight it or not cause i was rdm70/31 bst at that time. I decided to fight it by charming Crabs and Leeches there. It took awhile but it was really fun. I had to charm one after another to be able to beat it. Atlast, i got no drop, but 1 quus. hehe good luck
Also drops gil.
# Nov 05 2005 at 4:38 AM Rating: Decent
It also drops gil, got about 1300 in a party of 4.

PT setup:

WHM lvl 74
WAR lvl 72
THF lvl 75 (or about, she was /anon)
WAR lvl 60 (me :p)

Really a easy fight.

I'm a 54 bst currently and I was hanging out back there finishing up some exp when I see this guy pop. I'm like what the hell I'll give it a go. I charmed a EM sent it at him. Only to watch his HP bar not even move. I sent a couple more his way and still no luck I can see where this is leading to. A rdm camping the area runs up and sees me fighting it. I tell him, "take NM it's going to end up killing me." But too late at that point it kills my pet and then jumps me for about 650 damage one more swing and I was done. Rdm tosses up some enhancments and jumps into battle. He was 75 rdm ja player. Took him 10 mins to kill. The NM kept intimidating him making it hard to keep his buffs up. In the end he won and then raised me. Solo wise it's a tough fight. Thing I'm wondering about is how he was able to keep intimidating the 75 rdm so much and why noone has commented about this in other posts. It certainly plays a factor in soloing him with any job as casting buffs or shadows is hard when you cannot move from being intimidated. Just something to keep in mind when going to fight him.

As you are a BST I am sure that you are aware all mobs in the game are part of a set of families. Some families are more adept at killing certain other families. For example; Demons > Dragon's.

The RDM would have been intimitaded as he would have been wearing a piece of Crimson/Blood armour (cursed gear + w.abj).

When fighting Demons, Eyes or anything else with Dragon Killer Effects such as a Dragoon, Crimson/Blood armour wearers can be intimitaded.

Even something as simple as a PLD with Crimson Cuisses throwing a Cure on a Dragoon in the same alliance can end in intimidation for the PLD.

Just wondering.. can this mob be slept?
Many mobs are not succeptable to sleep, making them very hard for me to solo as a BLM.

RE: Sleep?
# Aug 04 2005 at 12:28 PM Rating: Decent
no he can not be slept, seen the RMT crews get massive links and RMT blms ES sleepga 2 and he resists. also had a bard camp this with me before and he pulled him with lullaby but it didnt stick so i suppose he is immune to sleep.

Ive seen this and Novv drop 2 Siren Hairs at once. i couldnt beleive it myself. ive killed Pahh tons of times and ive only see him do that once.

# Jul 14 2005 at 8:15 PM Rating: Decent
i can also confirm a double drop on hair, got 2 tonight on lightningsday @ 60% moon as 75NIN/37THF.

go lakshmi!
# Mar 25 2005 at 2:18 PM Rating: Decent
Solo'd as 71THF/35NIN using bloody bolts, may have died without them.
Dropped Sirens Hair (1) anc the Calamar which will sit in my moghose for a {Long Time}
was there when i showed up so i'm not sure if it is a lottery pop or timed. Estimating about 8000-12000 hp i killed before the links i killed popped back so i was safe.

Pops at L8 behind the Mythril Beastcoin Door.

There are two placeholders (Bog) that wander around the J8 K8 K7 area. Took me 3 hours to pop him, straighforward fight, he doesn't use a 2 hour. Pull him back up against the wall to avoid links.
spawn rate
# Feb 08 2005 at 8:53 AM Rating: Decent
anybody know spawn rate on this thing, and hwere does he spawn?
ninja 63 solo...
# Feb 07 2005 at 11:36 PM Rating: Decent
63 hmm...might be able to solo it but if your mage isnt high level he might die. He likes to do the old aqua shot or whatever that completely drops hate from you and then he will go for the whm. Also you might not have enough dd to take him down before he takes you down. But I will say this me 62 thf 60 pld 60 whm and 60 rdm took him down with no trouble at all.
spawn pos
# Jan 28 2005 at 7:53 PM Rating: Decent
so, does this guy spawn inside the mythril door? or just outside of it?
NIN solo?
# Jan 20 2005 at 8:36 PM Rating: Decent
Anyone think a 63 nin could solo this? if not maybe with one mage?

Easily duo'd as a 60NIN and a mage to keep up on cure if you get caught with shadows down and hit with a jump. Just keep it paralyzed, slowed and blinded and it can be done. At 61 I was able to solo it, very long fight though, and 1 of his Aqua ball, or Hydro shot hit for 400. The rest of them hit for less then 60. Ended the fight with about half health. Killed 5 times, no drops besides kelp and gil.

Multiple Siten Hairs? More Info please...

The locks of siren's hair are worth 360k each on Siren. It can drop 0-5 of them.

Can anyone confirm it can drop multiple Siren Hairs? Anyone got some more detailed info on him? How many Bog Sahagins are his placeholder, how often is his repop?
