"Tartaruga Gigante" is also a perfect way to say "Giant Turtle" in italian.

Funny these two words are toally the same in italian and portuguese.

for some reason, mysterytour has information on what is dropped (wether it be correct or not) but there must be some trick to defeating this guy.

*uses a phoenix down on Tartaruga Gigante*

Its an Adamantoise type mob and its alot harder then Aspidochelone and Genbu by FAR.

He has AOE Silence/Slow i cant remember if one or both, its not very easy to deal damage to him either, and once you do actualy get his HP near the 95% mark he will shell up and start casting Waterga4 WHILLE shelling up regening his HP, but his Regen is like 20x's stronger then Aspidochelone, and his Watrerga4 only takes about 2secs to fully cast.

I went with 2 Rangers and 7 Black mages for this and we couldnt get him past 95% HP, and when he shell up we couldnt beat his Regen at all b/c Waterga4 is such a fast cast, and he casts it more then once. so you cant have ppl standing around casting on it to try to out damage its regen.

This thing is no joke, GL to all who try.

Tartaruga can be traslated as Tortoise (spanish-english) and Gigante, Giant.

# Jul 30 2004 at 6:11 AM Rating: Decent
actually it ain't spanish-english tortoise is translated into portuguese as Tartaruga and into spanish as Tortuga

I've never seen it, but I'm guessing it looks not even remotely tortise-like.
