This beast is fantastic as a pet for bst. I screwed up by usng sic that caused aggro with two other T mobs. The mob we were fighting was a DC Jagil, so I went ahead and soloed it, since I had near full mp for Cure II. I figured the kraken would die and I would be alright (the two T would leave me alone, since the bst update). IT BEAT THEM DOWN! I saw one die and was like yay, then the next with a chain... wow... then it went back to slapping the DC pagil....

/em Thinks dirty thoughts about the Kraken.
Additional drop

Those aren't Krakens, they are Sea Monks. Same character model different name. Occasionally an NM version spawns on the boat also (Sea Horror). If you see that guy, stay far away. He's nasty, even for high level players and his drop sucks anyway.

bored in qufim waiting for a group at 50mnk/25war, went to kill it, and used counterstance. Worked great, took about 2 hits the enitre battle. Put on +vit gear, used chakra and i was at 100% health again

Killed this thing is less than 20 seconds as SAM45/WAR22. Did four ws's in a row with berserk, no food, and had absolutely no help. Then again, the 900k kote gloves I had on probably helped a lil' hehe.

Lol, I killed it as a RDM45/BRD8 in nothing but Scale Mail and Slops (with my AF weapon).
I only had 268 MP >.<

I wanted revenge for when i tried the Bst quest so i walked up to the kraken at lvl 55blm/21 smn (ignore the sub <_< i have 831 MP as it is...really think i need more?). At first i was like "i may die..." even though it was too weak high defense. so i started casting Freeze. it hit for 908 (decent hit) and took away 3/4 of its HP. Casted stone III on it but only hit it for 103 instead of the normal 300+ (it's a fish ok -_- it is strong to stone spells) and that left it with like || HP (less actually). Casted Thunder II on it just for fun and it did 245 and killed it. did all this and took all of 100 damage at the most. basically, at lvl 55 this thing is simple.
PS. only got a sea shell but it was fun to see low levels get amazed.

Get close enough to the sun...and you burn...
mediocre fight

This guy aint worth fighting unless you're being asked to do so by someone on the bst quest. Hits pretty hard, ~50 a hit to a 50 drg/war, and no good drops. Just is fun to say I solod a kraken.

I solod this as a 42thf/21nin, was relatively easy, came out of it w/ 144hp left got a seashell and a shall shell. I just wish I had silent oil on me so i could have snuck up behind it to Sneak Attack. Fight would have ended much sooner :\

I'm a level 33 BST and I can charm this thing if I use Tame. Once charmed, it only stays charmed for a few seconds... so I hit 2-hour.

I used it to kill Acrophies QUICKLY so i could find my carbuncle ruby. Worked great. =) (minimal XP as expected tho).

Unfortunately, after finding my ruby, I went to tear some stuff up... my COMP crashed. I logged back in after rebooting and saw dead bodies everywhere near one of the main camps =). Oooops

ADDITION: It rated IT to me at 33.

XD That is a great story! I wish I could have seen it. It killed me yesterday because I'm dumb. A RDM was killing it, but he was getting pretty low on HP, so I Divine Sealed and Cure III'd him... Needless to say, Kraken was pissed. I was still able to get back to the flowers in time, XD
I saw a BST making him fight a Thunder Elemental once, XD
Yeah, kinda easy.

Meh. If a level 37 Monk can -just- survive a fight with him, he can't be 40.

so......what lvl can i solo this?....as a thf/nin?
# Jun 26 2004 at 9:47 PM Rating: Decent
I control one of these and it was fun. Did more damage than me. It uncontrol and I had to control it again. Now I had to kill it off by letting it attack banshees.

friend of mine tells stories about how he sees high level bst's charming this thing, and taking it to other areas,

once he says he saw it in konschat,

I'm not too sure on the validity of this, I've neer seen a bst use a pet from a different zone, but seeing this think in konschat would be an interesting sight to say the least
RE: beastmaster fun
# May 26 2004 at 7:51 PM Rating: Decent
You can't take pets to other zones. I've witnessed someone try; the pets only get "uncharmed" when the Beastmaster changes zone.

With my first character i saw a lion from Jugner forest charmed by a Beastmaster in Vulkurm dunes
all of party had never seen it b4 and thought Beastmasters could create monsters, but the point is you can zone pets.

There are jugs that beastmasters can use to make pets. The one jug males a tiger pet, hence the tiger in Valkurm.

# Oct 18 2004 at 3:46 AM Rating: Decent
lmao. No, you can not zone charmed pets etc. All mobs act as if they were regular mobs, and as if you claimed a mob and zoned, it would stay in the original zone.

If BSTs could do this, they could just get a super high level mob from one area, and threaten people with it for gil. (Happened in EQ with PKing, would likely happen here.)
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 10 2004 at 12:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) bst can carry a mob from area to area, IT'S CALLED THEIR 2HR. LOOK IT UP AND FIND OUT.....and start trying to figure things out before you type stupid **** that isn't true

You have to be joking ... I'm a BST and No... We cant take mobs from one zone to another. It just uncharms. Even after using Familiar (2 hour).

I've seen Kraken in Batallia before ^^; I'm sure it was just fished up though...somehow...

and if you're partying on the beach in Qufim next to someone who's fish-botting, be wary. I was leveling my WHM sub, a 70+ WHM fished up Kraken and guess who it aggroed? That's right, I only lasted a hit or two :\

# Nov 13 2004 at 12:11 PM Rating: Default
yes u CAN NOT zone mob pets! just think for a second.........ok imagine u charming a kraken and zoning it all the way to gustaberg :0......so many would die. A lvl 40 mob in a lvl 1-8 solo zone=massacre!

What level did you solo it at?

What level did you solo it at, that it is "so easy"

I have to say, this is no lvl 40 Mob. at Quifum.

It checks a Decent challange to me, and everyone else I know around lvl 40 or so.

I would say this is a lvl 35 mob. At best.

Every lvl 40 or so that I know beat it, and beat it easily. including myself. A saw a lvl 43 BLM tear it apart.

In short, it looks meaner than it is. I guess that makes sense as its the "boss" in a lvl 30 quest. The BST flag.

I soloed it today at level 41RDM (Only conned decent challenge) and got a Seashell. I guess it drops things other than Water crystals...

Edit: O.O oops, my signature still says I'm a 29 RDM... ehh... better go change that.
