XP'd these things last night with lvl60 pt. We setup camp @g-12 (narrow strip)These things are a real pain in the ***. They have 2 attacks: Crosswind and WindSear that knocksback party members all over the place. They also have a blink spell that casts like 3 or 4 shadows on them. (can't remeber #) So careful when you wind up with a Muti-hit WS you'll only take off a couple damage. You can cast stun on them, but you need to be really quick! Weapon bash was more effective in controlling their attacks.

oh and the camp i was in was pretty dangerous. We had bard sleeping the mobs but they would pop up all over the place in mid fight.

Puk You!

btw, crosswind is a normal tp move of thier, however windshear can be avoided by not casting magic of the same element as the current day (ie dont cast blizzard on iceday). This is important knowledge for nuke happy blm because it goes against logic abit (more dmg potential for nuking on same day so people usually do it) but this ability really ***** up nin tanks.

where are the best camps to get these guys?

Best and safest place that I have found is G-12 in Wajaom Woodlands.

this does not appear to be true, Blizzard II from our RDM and Blizzard II from my Shiva didnt do very much damage, Double Slap on the other hand does lots of damage

just a heads up of what I have learned from fighting them

I don't know if I was just lucky or what, but I solo these things a decent amount as 71DRG and usually when I solo I just use my Jumps ASAP for TP. Anyway the Puk was about to do the crosswind attack and I Jumped it and it stunned the attack. Much like the attercops get there TP moves stunned when you Jump them. I will be tetsting this further to see if Jumps always Stun TP moves or only has a very small chance, or maybe it was just a fluke.

Xping in woodlands, and hyoton/blizzard on Iceday would instantly trigger a TP move. On Lightingsday, Thunder spells did the same thing.

I'd hate to think what casting aero on windsday would do...cure them + instant TP?
weak Blizzard

funny name

a new dragon type mob... prolly one of the only non-nm ones... and they called a PUK?!? sounds like either a sickness or sports equipment.

Drgs are great fighting these things. The dragoon alone intimdates them and with Ancient Circle other pt members will intimidate them as well. :)

Haven't seen it mentioned but these guys have a fast movement speed, so puller should have shadows or pull with a pet

My Thf/War took a bit of a beating on longer pulls....

I tried pulling these things with Hojo:Ni at nighttime with my NIN AF feet and still lost shadows before I made it back to the pt >.<
Element-day thingie.

There's another little quirk here.

If Puks get cast on by spells cast on their day, they will immediately spam a TP move.

Boyfriend and I were duoing Puks on Iceday. He had ice spikes up, and enblizzard, as well as pulling with paralyze. The Puks immediately spammed their TP moves.

It grew unbearable. Boyfriend tried putting shock spikes up and a different enspell. No more issues with TP spammage. When the day changed, he went back to enblizzard and ice spikes and things we're normal.

This doesn't apply to spells cast on self or party that don't affect the mob. We didn't confirm whether or not it happens with non-damaging enfeebles, but I'll save that for some other set of poor shmoes.
wind = bad

Of course, it also drops Wind Crystals... and if it's like Sea Puk, it also drops Chimera Blood.

Magic triggers special move?

There is either a bug in these Puks, or SE really
gave them a silly little feature:

on Lightsday (not sure if day matters), I saw this
happen many times: if I cast Dia or Diaga on it,
it always triggered a special move. If I kept spamming
those spells, it would keep spamming different moves, like AoE Flashga, push-back, Blink, etc...

Also, using wind based magic on it, or wind based
skillchain, or just about anything, will give these HP.

I can confirm that they count as dragons/wyverns. I'm a DRG and I've intimidated them repeatedly, and Ancient Circle has allowed other party members to intimidate them.

These have dropped Puk Eggs and Puk Wings for me. The eggs SEEM to be a fairly common drop...I got 4 on about 12 kills while running around with 3 friends. At present I have no idea what to cook with the eggs, though I am trying out various new recipes. No luck so far. The wings are used for Puk Fletchings (lvl 82, Clothcraft) according to Somepage. Recipes are:
# Main Skill: Clothcraft (82 - Adept)
* Crystal: Wind
* Ingredients: Puk Wing x2
* Result: Puk Fletchings x6
* HQ #1: Puk Fletchings x8
* HQ #2: Puk Fletchings x10
* HQ #3: Puk Fletchings x12

# Main Skill: Clothcraft (82 - Adept)
* Crystal: Wind
* Crafting Tool: Fletching
* Ingredients: Puk Wing x6, Zephyr Thread
* Result: Puk Fletchings x18
* HQ #1: Puk Fletchings x24
* HQ #2: Puk Fletchings x30
* HQ #3: Puk Fletchings x36

Again, this is according to Somepage.

If anyone finds a use for the eggs please post! I'm dying to find out how to use some of these new ingredients!
