Historical Information

In Japanese folklore, the Isonade was a giant cerulean shark said to dwell along the waters off the coast of the island of Kyushu. With its barbed tail, the Isonade would latch onto ships or sailors swept overboard and pull them to the murky depths. Any time it would surface to breathe fresh air, violent storms would quickly follow, with any victims of said storms being Isonade's prey.

I just fought ast MNK75/NIN37

Only had to recast Utsesumi once, very easy mob, didn't actually take any damage, and got two asuran fists off.

Happy Hunting
Fun stuff

Just took this guy down in 20- seconds as 75rng/war, 3 shots in all, a little over 5kHP i'd say.
hard hitter

took him on as 69 pld. only had Protect III on. it took all 306 of my MP to keep my health about 1050. this thing hits about 50-69 when he hits, which isnt very often (of course rotten accuracy). Solo'd him with no probs, even switched weapons from sword + shield to Gsword a few times for fun.

I just soloed this as a 75MNK/NIN.
I took my NPC out (It's 40+) Just so it would haste me.
Lucky enough it only did Water Wall like 5 times.
Used Asuran Fists about, 3 times
Went down after about.. 3 minutes.
Basically its a Pansy to anyone 75-Job-/NIN
Interesting NM

I fought this last night as a 75DRK. Interestingly enough this mob is very much like a SAM. It hits like a freight train, but misses a whole lot more LOL. It could hit me for 60 a shot, but missed be a hell of a lot. It's Screwdriver hit for 290, which isn't shabby at all. Granted anyone with shadows could easily kill this, I did it without.

After 4 Guillotine (1300+ a pop) this son of a gun finally dropped. It was a quick fight, but this thing has tons of HP. I would guesstimate approx 6500/7000HP this NM has. Definitally not soloable to SAM under 55. Bring a high lvl friend, cause otherwise you prolly get mad Goblin aggro and all that other good stuff. Went back to Norg and picked up my Mogoruku!!!!
RDM solo

I fought this fishy last night with a 70 whm(Thanks Tygon^^) friend and I went as a 63 Ninja. I'm confident I could have solo it after fighting it but I always like to play it safe. The fishy never even broke through my utsusemi. I got the fish bait after killing maybe 3 or 4 Goblin Robbers didn't take long at all.

I soloed him easily as DRK70/WAR35. I put Defender up and used a mithkabob. He hit me for about 70 each. I got to about 600 hP then did Souleater and Blood Weapon, and one last Cross Reaper finished him off. I would guess he has around 4200 HP,as my 2 Cross Reapers and one Guillotine did about 1000 each and i did about 1200 in regular attacks. The fight lasted about three minutes.

I soloed this using my DRG/WHM at lv 60. my whm was like lv 28. anyways alli did was just hit it and wast whenever i needed healing. i would have done better had i had a better wep, equip, and some att food. i also got the key item after that so, this thing is very much soloable by a DRG/WHM lv 60, no lower

i helped my buddy Tuniz do this yesterday, what a peice of cake! it was only the 2 of us, me 58 war/nin and Tuniz 43 sam/war. the hardest part was that i forgot to tell Tuniz to get prism powders and silent oils, so we had to fight all the way to the pond. the sack dropped within 4 fights with Gob Robbers, and then we proceeded to the pond. it took us a while to clear the place out (cats, hounds, water elementals)
then Tuniz touched the ??? and we took it down away from the pond in case of agro and we fought for 3-4 mins. no problems. gratz tuniz on your first AF

I killed him as a 66PLD/NIN, and the fight was cake. He missed me so much, I was able to keep blink up almost the entire fight. I had a 36WHM there for curing, but was not needed. Very easy fight, if you plan on blinking it.

We killed this a bit ago with some help. we did fine with a rng a pld and a rdm all 50-60+ we also had a thf w/ treasure hunter who was 35 at the time. We got the robber drop like in 2 robbers so overall this AF 1 wasnt that hard for me. the only prob was the rdm had to sneak / invis me and the thf every 5 seconds or the Coerls would aggro us. They werent that bad ,but they were VERY annoying when they aggroed us.
