I was running to Norg on my 75brd/whm to do the ninja scroll quests and I happen to see in my log "Meww the Turtlerider starts casting stoneskin" while running past. I was like "Hey why not?" I tried to take out the sahagins around him to avoid links but he ran over to me. To avoid more links I ran under the waterfall entrance to SSG. I had Meww and 3 sahagins on me now. I did horde lullaby and proceeded to take out the links one by one. After that I just put up Paeon V and Minuet IV, along with elegy and requiem VI to counteract the regen. This took a very long time. I was hitting him for about 35 dmg a hit with my Joytoy. Finally I got him down to around 50% and he used benediction for around 2k+ hp. In the end I finally took him down. 1/1 on the oliphant and a fun experience since a brd doesn't get to solo many NMs. Took about 15-20 mins in total.

I've killed Meww on multiple occasions, here are my experiences. First, his spawn is 21 hours, from what I noticed he spawns EXACTLY on the 21 hour mark. He spawns with two Sahagin following him, at all times unless killed, Sahagin are sound meaning they're highly likely to link. He has around 4k HP, and uses benediction RANDOMLY, or so i've noticed. He does spam Stoneskin and Dia when able, and he's got a decent magic resistance. Normal attack speed, annoying defense, auto-regen, and his TP moves, very irritating yet exciting kill, regardless if the Oliphant isn't more than 80k. XD ~My two cents.

Just killed him as 63rng. was a good long fight. if i didn't have those bolts, i would have died pretty much. there was one link, but he turned out helping me more than the NM. his 2hr sucked badly, but thanks to me ripping 629 rampages on him, it didn't matter much.

Great way to start the morning i'd say...now if he only would have dropped the dam thing...
Easy for 75

Made quick work of this NM as 75 MNK/WAR.

Friend found it while leveling BST and it killed him, so I rode out to kill it. Waited for it to get away from the others so I wouldn't link, then buffed (Berserk, Focus, Dodge, Counterstance) and pulled with Chi Blast.

Used Hundred Fists and its HP started dropping quickly :) then it did Benediction for 2265 HP. It was surprisingly durable, and lasted until the end of Hundred Fists before dying and rewarding me with 32 gil. >.>

Offensively, it's weak. Hit me once for 70 with Berserk/Counterstance on, though Hydro Shot (he did 2) does hurt for about 250s. Mostly, he just missed (with -9 evasion too).
Cololest NM EVER

OMG, I have to camp this guy!
He rides a freakin turtle for christ sakes!
Is there any special title you get from killing this guy, like King of the Turtles or something?
Got him today, easy fight

Was on the boat to Al Zahbi when an LS member said they found him while heading to Norg to help another member with Ninja scroll quest.

I warp over and tele to yhoat and run there but she was already dying. I finall ymade it to the hole and dropped down and voked Meww but it continued to chase my firend and killed her. It turned towards me and started attacking, I hit it for 200+ a hit as a 74Drk/War and he hardly ever hit me. I popped a Guillotine on him, dropped him to 40% he Benedictions but a min later he goes down from another Guillotina + Souleater. Easy fight considering his HP and 2hr.

Lucky enough to have an ls member tell us that he was up today on Garuda server. Managed to switch jobs and outpost warp in time to claim him alone. Went in as 64Drg/Rdm and was suprised at the benediction.Luckily i was able to dispel the protect he had and let my Healing Breaths keep me up and running.All in all , it was about 7-8min. fight and quite easy at my lv.Most physical attacks miss.He does howver have Banish2 Dia2 and a couple other nasty moves if you are alone.can't say much for drop rate as today was first time i killed it.I did however get the Oliphant.Tod approx. 1:15pm est

yeh, 75 SMN, it took me 30 Mins. He's what is considered to be a "Lesser HNM" (Like Lumberjack, Waraxe Beak, etc)

First, he has sick HP, benediction (2532 on my fight) and the links failed to depop when I fought him.

His regen is moderate. By that, I mean unless you're dealing some respectable Damage, you'll get no where. Links make this guy more annoying and his Stoneskin is like he has a battleship wrapped around him.

he was generous to reward my efforts with a gracious 79 gil. i promptly gave the screen the finger and finished his buddies off.
Yup, I killed him.

Was heading to Norg for some cheap Ninja tools I walked in behind the waterfall and there's a Taru Whm fighting this thing. I watched for a bit and killed a link for him. He disenged and told me I could have him if I wanted. I figure wth he can't be that bad, after all I'm a 57drk.

So after about 5 minutes I've got him down to half health, and the little ******* used Benediction for 2280. Very bitter. At this point the Taru Whm is watching me and tosses a few cures my way. I invite and he's about the only reason I survived. I kept Bio II on the NM at all times since he kept trying to use stoneskin and blink, so I didn't have much of a problem with regen. Long fight, pretty fun.

After it was all said and done we got drop, I offered to let Taru Whm lot but he passed on it and I made 50k for stopping to help out someone in trouble. Good deal all around.

Fought him the other night as 71drk/thf. In the middle of the little area too, no links. Got drop, made a nice 200k as the price is on Fairy.

The only difficult part I found about this fight was when he use Benediction, that pissed me off.

Took maybe 5, 10 minutes

It's safe to say a lvl 75 whm/blm CANNOTsolo Meww.
I went fishing for Eshimo newt in the area where he spawned and I just saw it out of the corner of my screen as it was casting buffs. (F-11)
I had no idea what it was or what it dropped at that point but I tried it anyway.
I was shocked that I could run right past him without any aggro.
As stated in previous posts, he has a huge regen rate and even though I was able to drain, aspir, frost, bio II, poison and hexastrike him a few times, the best I could do was get him down to 70% and then I got down to around 240mp. I had no refresh so I kind of knew things weren't going well so I legged it to SSG zone.
I kept him silenced, slept links and used my stoneskin but didnt amount to much.
I could prolly go back and and get him as my rdm but I'm too lazy lol.

Just killed as a 75 WHM/BLM... had 4 links + NM at one point. Slept them all, killed links one by one, then went back to NM. Pull to a safe spot ASAP (tunnels) and use good melee gear. Got drop, for what its worth.

Saw it spawn south of the northern pond in F-11 with the waterfall.. right in a small group of trees, similar to the firepits I've seen in other areas.

My friend (55mnk/thf) and I (60rdm/blm) were farming gems for Venerer ring when he noticed this guy pop. We had no idea what he dropped nor what level he was, but thought, "What the heck." We knocked him down to about 1/3 life pretty quick, then he used Benediction to my total surprise. At that point I figured I'd actually better "try" or we could be in trouble. Ended up being a pretty easy fight regardless.. most likely thanks to silence. Didn't get a drop, and too bad.. I checked prices (Shiva server) afterwards, to find it's worth >1mil.

I check for this guy everytime I run through on my way to Norg.. I'd love to attempt this solo (Tarutaru power!)
Pain not worth the Fight

Me and a buddy were doing mermaid quest when we saw this guy 75rdm/25thf and he was 65drg/thf so we start fighting it hasss so much HP and its regen is sick like everyone says. we where even doing LIght skillchain savage blade--> wheeling thrust thunder 3 MB took us like 5 min to get him to half life for him to Benidiction O.o "stupid fish the turtlerider gains 3k+ hp back" -.- fight took about 10 min not that it was hard but didnt think he would take so long killed him got the drop 120k on cerberus we split it. If u need It bring DD's lots of em

Don't bother for a 100k drop >.<

Defeated this as a Taru RDM/BLM level 60. . .

This guy's regen is insane >.<

I was doing roughly 40+18 with enthunder. Key to beating him for me was just plain DOT. Weeee gave me some advice on doing shock, choke, burn, bio II, and poison II.

I just kept up SS, and silenced every chance I could get. I would say, for 1 1/2 hour I spent ; ; I wish I had gotten the drop. . . Never again will I bother fighting him. His Regen is just insane, and my melee damage is laughable. Without the DOT damage, we were just at a stale mate.

A high DD like Monk + a RDM could easily beat him 60+.

65 SMN vs this guy
# Dec 08 2005 at 3:42 PM Rating: Decent
I Carby pulled him far from the other Sahagin in the area and began to kite him. I have a free Carby so at first I tossed a few meteorites. I was drinking juice and keeping my mp up very nicely with a free Carby. I got him to two hour, but regular melee just matched his regen. I ended up checking through my linkshells and getting a 65 RDM to come out and help me beat him. Once the RDM was there, I was able to Eclipse Bite him to death.

His auto-regen is insane. Carbuncle was hitting between 30-40 and criticals were 50-60. We were mostly at a stalemate. A few criticals and a poison nails would bring the fight to my favor, but a Blink or Stoneskin and I would lose ground again.

We won and got the instrument which the RDM and I agreed to split 50-50. Thanks again, Branko!

was going to norg saw him and voked. he hits weak but has a ton of hp. Vorpal blade for 655 he bene'd for 2211. On the average he hit me for 15-30 crit for 60-80 I hit him anywhere from 70-90. Took 15 minutes but I beat him with around 750hp and 5mp. Never was really in danger of having to 2hr. No drop though
Killed this tonight @62 PLD

While walking to Norg, I stumbled across the body of a 52 SAM. I raised him, and immediately saw the NM. Figured he couldn't be too much harder than the other Sahagins in the area, so I voked him, despite having 44mp. With capped evasion, he misses a lot, but he was hitting me for about 30.

Finally had him beat down to about 25%, and I was in the orange myself, but I figured I had won. He used Benediction, recovered 2500hp and was back at full health. I sent a /tell to the SAM, explaining that I had to zone.

To conclude- ended up forming a duo with the 52 SAM, and beat him rather easily. I was out of mp by the end of the fight, but both of us had plenty of hp left. Ended up getting 17exp and a tad bit of gil, but no drop.

Anyhow, I strongly suspect I could have solo'd him if I had full mp going into the fight. Wouldn't have been easy, and it probably would have taken ten minutes, but I could have done it. He misses too much to really be dangerous- the worst part is Benediction coupled with a massive amount of hp. Thanks to Docholiday on Sylph for the help, just the same!

A word of advice, if you see him up and just walking around, be prepared for a really long fight. Odds are he has protect/shell up which GREATLY enhance his defense, which make his regen even that much more painful. My drain was doing about 10~ and physical attacks were anywhere from 8-25 with my daggers...and im a 73THF ; ;

After about half an hour of pecking him down (god damn you benediction) his buffs wore and I took him down easy, drain was up to like 30 and my daggers were doing 20-50.

I was leaving Norg on my way to do some quests in Yhoater/Temple of Ugg., was a 75mnk/37whm. Saw him, hopped my chocobo and claimed him. He was surrounded by 2 monk type Sahagin, 1 bard Sahagin, and 1 whm Sahagin. As previously stated, he's a whm NM sahagin.

Now I know what those poor monsters feel like, a party of adventurers attacking them.

Despite the fact I was in no real danger, it took a long time to kill (with /whm I had autoregen, and with a non-AF Body chakra for about 140, I finished with about only 200hp lost, so I'd say between the 5 of them I lost maybe 450ish HP in all). The bard kept singing Knight's Minne and Army Paeon, and the whm Sahagin and NM kept curing Meww, coupled with his innate Auto-regen, he was regaining HP at a pretty high rate.

He missed about 90% of his hits (love Dodge ^^), and the majority of his attacks that hit me ended up activating the Ice/Blaze/Shock spikes on my Rasetsu armor. He was stunned and paralyzed a fair amount. The attacks only did about 20hp of damage, although I did cast Pro2 on myself. The other Sahagin's attacks were around 1-10dmg, and did nothing really but give me more TP. The only WS I used was Spinning Attack, since I figured that the NM was regaining about 60hp a tick, plus 190hp+ Cure3's at regular inteverals, I decided it would be much more useful to elimate the linking bard and whm, as well as do damage to the NM (Asuran Fists would do about 1k to one target, Spinning Attack did about 300hp to all targets in the AoE, do the math).

I checked the parser after the fight, it says he had about 8,000 hp, but since with Benediction (Which he did at about 25%), Auto-Regen, Paeon, and the many cures, I'd say he had less than half that, probably about 4,000.

And he did drop the Oliphant for me, lucky for me I have a 40brd.
