It's for part of CoP 7-4 =P Spawned from a ??? when you're on that mission.

As for the Mijin Gakure o_O Didn't know it'd be that high. Apparently the trick is to kill the Ninja tonberry before the other(s) and it won't use it. However, if you kill another one first, it'll blow up like that x_X

By touching the ??? you will spawn the Cryptonberry Executor. If attacked he will summon 3 Cryptonberry Assasin. The Assassin are BLM THF SMN (summons elemental). The Assassin's die quite fast, yet i (RDM75/blm) failed sleeping them. The Executor is a NIN and he will use Mijin Gakure (tho it might be a timed action): We did only very limited dmg to it and all 3 of us (Elvaan MNK75/NIN37, Mithra NIN73/WHM36, Mithra RDM75/BLM37) took 3.5oo+DMG from it. Also it did NOT seem like the Executor survived his own Mijin, which is unusual for NM's. The remaining 2 Assassin ( we wanted to hold the Executor cauz of the possible Mijin danger and kill the 3 minions) went back to the spawning point and depopped after some time. At least we had a few courious ppl watching us. . .couriousity killed the cat, like they said.

Mijin notice: MIjin is based on the mob's current HP, though this NM might be an exception. I have seen a bunch of JP 70+ fighting these NM months ago and they too got hit pretty bad by Mijin taking out 1RDM, 1WHM, 1MNK, 2War and 2other guys of their alliance even though they whacked at it. Unfortunately I have no idea of it's HP left at that time.

heh, I just got CoP and figured I would take a quick run through carpender's landing. I'm a DRK60 and figured that carpender's landing is not a rough area for my lvl. Next thing I know, I see something that looks like Yoda from starwars in a blue or red cloak running around with a staff. So I check him and it says "impossible to guage" so I figured, eh what the hell, I can pretty much take anything in this area, so go for it!" no sooner did I get up from healing, and someone else (lvl 55+ NIN I think) started to enguage it, so I got closer to get a better look and BAM! Stupid mob used Mijin Gakure AoE spell and hit me and the person fighting the mob for a whopping 3964 damage! Instant death... Needless to say, my jaw dropped and I stared blankly at my computer screen for the next 5 minutes trying to figure out what the hell just happened and why I shouldn't punch my computer monitor...
Lesson to be learned? Don't go near this guy without a condom, he'll give ya Aids! lol j/k j/k

Cryptonberry Executor
Cryptonberry Assassin
Tonberry's Elemental

These mobs are Tonberry type. They are found by touching a '???' at (I-9) in Carpenter's Landing. When touched the '???' says "A tree has fallen here..." so this must be quest/mission activated. I don't know how to activate it. However, I searched for the members of the party after the fight and they were all lingering in Metalworks in Bastok. I then asked one of the members, he said it was a CoP mission to get to AluTelu (Al'Taieu I think is what he meant).

Once the '???' has been touched 1 Executor and 2 Assassin's appear, one of which has the ability to summon the Tonberry Elemental. The monsters must be around lv 70 as there was a 5 member japanese party fighting them. All members were ~72-75. I know 2 of them: Brd74/Whm37 & Nin75/War37. I was watching (I am 56 Pld) and I was one-hit for 1000+ damage just by the one elemental! These monsters are no joke.
