Orobon Picture

Pathos Unlocked

  • Can remove Body, Rings/Earrings, HP, and/or MP.

    • This can remove the Pathos of anyone that entered the zone in the party or alliance, even if they have disbanded from the party or are disconnected from the game when the monster is killed.

    • For example, if Player 1 of the party gets disconnected when the monster is defeated, there's a chance of his/her Pathos being unlocked when they log back into the game.

Solo'd on THF75/NIN37... with capped marksmanship (230) and evasion at about 265.
I was in the middle of a coin trading run, so I did not have any food on me, unfortunately.
I made sure to keep him blind, with defense down, using bolts.

Echo Drops are pretty much a necessity, as he hits pretty hard (140-160) with low delay, making recovery from a long silence very tough.

Orobon is definitely not one of the toughest NM's that are soloable.

I believe one would be safe attempting to solo with THF, NIN, or RDM/NIN.

Duo'd him with a 63 THF/WAR and me as a 63 RDM/WHM with no problem. The THF started out fighting with me hanging back to raise incase he died, but then we decided that we could take it. Dropped the Lure, which is pretty worthless IMO. It only goes for about 1k on the Auction House. But it was a pretty good fight, and it let the THF and I really test our abilities to take things down. I had to convert once in the middle of the fight, but I was missing MP when we started.
ez NM

duoed it easily as 75RDM/BLM and a friend 75Nin/War drop is pretty much 100% and i've seen this thing fished up 15+ times on the same boat ride. Rdm/Nin could probably easily solo it if you bring echo drops given this bastards spams the hell outa an AoE silence ability.

I fished one of these up with a Minnow/Composite Rod. Sinking Minnow may work as well.

Drops "Orobon Lure" used for making the puppet part "Strobe" which is the Provoke Module.
That woke me up...

I was just fishing on my way to checking out the new areas when this thing popped. Never saw one before so I just assume I could take it (75MNK/37NIN). I finally got it dead with a couple of Cure 5's from passengers (I believe 5 in all) and Hundred Fists.
got the drop

I pulled one up someone asked if i needed help,instead of calling for helpI asked him to invite me to party, he did. There was a whm hi 60's i believe and myself 73 PLD I cannot remember who other person was. WE killed it pretty easy although it has some hard hitting moves. This Mob drops Oboron lure,used in alchemy to make a strobe, Pup part i believe, Other 2 party members passed on drop and i got it.Initially it sold for 100k on quezt but now its around 15-20k also i believe this item stacks.Oboron looks like a giant angler fish the lure its the glowing ball at the end of its antenna to lure fish.
Dam fast boat ><

Yeah...it's always great when you're travelling on the ship as a Tarutaru WHM57/BLM28 and you get hit for twice as much HP as you have with his AoE move (didn't see the name of it). Fortunately the ship was jam packed and I got a Raise III. But that thing is deadly. Got soloed by a 75THF/37NIN (Also didn't see name).

AOE Silence, Virus, and Sleep at a pretty large range. Not a very nice guy. No siree.

A party of 6 of us varying from 34-75 beat this fairly easily on the way to Nashmau, only hinderence being that we weren't prepped for Silence - Our 34WHM (Allielle) in the hold casting Silena whenever we needed it. :P

Didn't drop a thing, even with a 71THF.
