  • Immune to Sleep, susceptible to Stun. Highly resistant to all enfeebles.

  • Has a potent auto-regen effect that cannot be dispelled.

  • Has a draw-in effect.

  • Periodically summons undead to assist him in battle. These undead are roughly the same strength as the undead mobs in the room and will share hate with Vrtra. Vrtra will spawn any two of these at a time.

    • Pey: A skeleton Warrior

  • Grants title: Vrtra Vanquisher

  • Spike Flail: Massive AoE physical damage. Absorbed by three shadows. Will only occur when a character has drawn hate from behind it.

  • Vrtra possesses the same abilities as his full strength counterpart in King Ranperre's Tomb, though has a decidedly lower amount of HP.

Historical Information

In Hindu mythology, Vrtra (Vritra, "The Devourer") was an Asura and was described as being a gigantic serpent or dragon with three heads. Initially said to hold all the world's rivers captive until its death at the hands of the god Indra, later tellings of Vrtra suggested that he was created by the heavenly builder Tvashtri to slay Indra, who had earlier slew Tvashtri's son.

After engaging in a battle in which Vrtra claimed victory (he had swallowed Indra, only to be forced by the other Devas to regurgitate him), the two struck a truce that Indra would not attack Vrtra with anything made of wood, stone, or metal, dry or wet, or during the day or night. Indra instead used foam from ocean waves (neither dry nor wet, and not made of wood, stone, or metal) and killed Vrtra at twilight (neither night nor day).

He/she has some nasty moves but ya the summon part is what makes it harder. Honestly though this is not considered hard anymore.

Hehe, Vrtra is just a money drop NM, not commonly taken down on the Fairy server, my LS is the only LS who kills it really, I think only one or two other LS on the server have taken him down. Most of Fairy's HNM LS's stay at Dragons Aery really, Everyone wants D Body and Ridill :P

This guys a ***** though, since all the pops and all the high level mobs around, but REvilers helm is nice for PLD/NIN's ^^ By all means hardest HNM before Absolute Virtue, whom of which can use all two hours ><
i'm scared of Ranperre's Tomb now...

I was wondering around aimlessly in this area, saw a circular room on the map and decided to see what was there. BIG mistake. Vrtra was up, and saw me pokin around his/her room... (only had sneak up, because i thought there were only skeletons in there). From what i'd guess, the result would be the same with invisible on... (heard that it's true sight). Anyway, you guys can guess what the end result of a level 60 Tarutaru Red Mage being attacked by Vrtra was. However, i AM proud to say that i survived 1 hit from the dragon! Only to be killed by a skeleton...

People in jeuno where doing shouts to go fight this, so being that I had just hit 70 at the time I decided to join up and test my luck. In total we had 3 alliances of 18 ppl. Biggest gathering for something I had seen so far lol. Whats even more funny is that 1/3 of the overall ppl died just trying to down to her thx to skele aggro lol. Ive never seen so many ppl die in one place lol. And the best part about it all is when we final got to vrtra and buffed up and all that good stuff, a taru decides to kamikaze it to fook us up and he gets us all killed LOL. So being the persistent group that we are we try one more time. Finally were all set to go. And another rng pulls vrtra and the very first thing this ******* does is Dispel~ga which (I didnt know he could do) and spiked flail. 1000~2000 dmg to all those poor ppl around. Then his summoned skeles finished of the rest of the survivors it was amazing ~_~

Just beat Vrtra tonight for the second time w/ Pxtzle. Full drop + first known Reviler's Helm on Unicorn server.^^ We wiped at our first attempt at 87% due to an unexpected spike flail, but we persevered and eventually beat it in about ~2 hours of fighting. Very fun fight^^

I was PT'ing as Paladin in King Ranperre's when I get shouts from higher level peeps up ahead about Vrtra. PT isn't too far from ending, so I'm all psyched and so are a few other psychos in my PT. When PT is over, a 75 BRD/WHM friend of another PT member pops in, he and five of us form together, sneak up and run like hell past the other mobs and pass the Giant Gate. The NIN, BLU, and PLD all run up ahead, while I stay behind cause my buffer is still a few points incomplete. The Ninja and Blue Mage go kamikaze, and the other Paladin uses Invincible to draw hate. They got a crapload of screenshots, I only got two at around this point, decide I'm satisfied, and back my *** up against the chamber door, far away from Vrtra and other undead. I start using Warp Scroll, and maybe halfway I noticed Vrtra started coming toward me. I take one last (bad) snap. At this point, just about everyone is dead aside from the Bard who helped us, but he got drawn in soon enough. Against whatever the odds were, my Warp activated, while everyone else, presumably, got whipped in King Ranperre's. Here are the SS I took:


RIP and thank you to everyone there; even though I was the only one who got out :P

On my server, seraph a ls called Galleon fought this thing and i herd it only took about 55 minutes to finish it off. They must have been on fire because they killed a Tiamat before it and proceeded to kill Jormungand right after it. wish i couldve been there. mustve been one long day. :)

my LS took this badass down a few days ago, we faced a bad start, wiped and got back up to start again. took about two and a half hours of fighting, but in the end we got a Dragon Harness for one of our THFs and a Sha'ir Manteel for a BRD. i guess we felt good about the win and wanted to go after another wyrm, so we took Tiamat down 3 days later. another Dragon Harness for us. Jorm, I'm hoping to see you fall over the weekend or sooner.

oh, and to all you BlackRoses haters of the Sylph server, dont have a problem with me cause im part of the LS. You don't know me, I haven't done anything wrong and as far as I know I haven't offended you in any way.

I did something similiar with my 32war/mnk, exept out of stupidity. I thought I had to go there for a revival tree root (1k on AH). When I got far enough down I freaked out and started using oils and prisms while checking the place out. I come to this door and decide why not? Then I see vrtra. A friend of mine (doesn't play) said "go get a closer look, you're invisible". I made a comment to my LS about this guy and by the time I got a "RUN AWAY" back from them I took my first hit. Though everyone was shocked that I survived two hits from this guy with no buffs at 32 and now are eager to see me lvl pal being the only galka on the LS. /(galka) (meat) (sheild) (impossible to guage)

Check out this glitch.
Vrtra spawns near spook area and MPKs KRT.


The GMs put it down to 3rd PT programs or a glitch. The screenshots of him are very nice ^^; He is one sexy dragon.

But I don't fancy him near me when I'm camping shpook :P
