A friend of mine fished it up, thankfully I was on the top part and missed him and my other friend dying. A level 75 BLM kept it slept long enough to get us to Al Zahbi in one piece.
Gugra Orobon +1 ewwww!

I was on my way to Al Zahbi for the first time and to kill some time i thought, hey why not try some fishing. whipped on out my composite rod and a minnow, got a bite and was like awesome must be a tuna ^^. But NO, fished up this ugly sucker and in 3 hits my poor lvl 49RDM/24BLM was fish food. On top of that my carcass sat on the boat and couldn't get a raise from anyone cause of the lightning elemental that was hovering over me. Got a raise when we got to the port though. Yes, I know this story was pointless, just wanted to emphasize not to fish with a minnow unless you want to battle.

Solo'd a few minutes ago as 75 war/nin. Took me down to about half HP, but wasn't too hard.
Just My Luck

On my first boat ride to Al Zahbi I encountered this mob with my friend 75war/37 nin (me 55whm/27blm) i kept him healed during entire fight but i got hit by his tail twice and ended up dieing. No drop on first kill but we then encountered another one on same boat ride and with help from a 75 blm/37 whm killed him again with drop of Orobon Lure. Ship docked before they could get the loot tho so unsure how much this sells for on Shiva. Just nice to kill him twice in one trip

I got this bad guy when someone fished it and they weren't expecting this big guy. Anyways I also confirmed it can appear on the ship to AlZhabi too! I was startled but soloed it easily as 72Drk/Rdm.

Easily solo-able by a blm74/whm37+ >.>

First time I got this guy I didn't know what the heck it was though, people were fishing, fished one up, and I was just sitting there first time on the boat from expansion, spamming stun in the spell menu and saw a mob pop up so i waited and then stunned.

This one would have killed me but I slept it and invited a nin and rdm from the boat to help me kill it.
We got this lure thing I hear is for puppetmaster, and we free-lotted and I didn't get it. >:|

Anyways, next time on the boat though, for kicks, I decided to solo it. So I fished it up ( with mah taru rod and minnow bait and 0 fishing!! :3 ), and I did the standard sleep-> bind-> nuke tactics that all blms are accustomed to. Killed it, no drop though.

I heard that like three level 75s died to it somehow lol..

In the fight, it only takes about all a taru blm's mp to kill it, you might have to rest a little to kill it the rest of the way.

I soloed this NM as a 75pld/37whm. Took a little bit of time to kill it but wasnt too rough. Got around 50 xp and an Orobon Lure dropped.

It shows as an NM (Impossible to gauge) but we've killed it a few times now for small amounts of exp and nothing else. Anyone gotten anything from them yet?

I have seen fishermen pull this up twice. Hits hard, hits relatively fast. Has a nasty move called Vile Breath that is similiar to the Bad Breath of an ochu. Also, there is a large AoE move that hit me pretty damn hard, like 600 damage and it hit everyone in a HUGE radius. Seems pretty nasty, has a good bit of life.

as a followup to this, i fished it up again (and lost), but it also does Hypnic Lamp which seems to be a sleep move, and Seismic Tail which did 230-ish damage and, ultimately, finished me off.

*shakes fist*
Orobon, check

first to post here, huh?

i solo'd this thing as a 72MNK/36WAR while killing some time and fishing on the ferry. without hundred fists and some nicely-timed counters, i probably wouldn't have made it. it had a nasty breath attack, 'Vile Belch' that seemed to do random statuses (i was plagued at one point, and then silenced from another). Gnash also took a chunk of my HP out at the very end. i made it out with 244/1646 HP remaining.

i got 45 XP out of it.
