Sea Monk
# Sep 19 2009 at 10:15 AM Rating: Decent
Fought it for the first time today. Was going to level THF, so all I brought was lvl 11 gear for THF as DRG35/WAR17. Didn't expect to fight him. But he popped, and I attacked. Did about 100 damage to me. Wasn't too hard. Then pirates came. Crossbones aggro'd up the behind, and this WHM let me lay there, and abandoned me on the docks. I lost any respect I had for him.
/clap for sea monk.

Up in Arms

This is not the Up in Arms BCNM enemy. That enemy is called Fe'e.

Last time I went on the ship, there was one of these guys just sitting on the deck. It showed up as easy prey, so I just soloed it with RDM30/BLM15. Still, it was hilarious to watch the others flee in terror.

Note there are two types of mob, both called Sea Monk that you may encounter on the ferry.

Firstly there's the Sea Monk that will occasionally randomly spawn on the deck, this is level 21-29 (this site lists Sea Monks as being 21-35 as there are higher level mobs also called Sea Monk in Korroloka Tunnel. This will aggro to sound if it's EP or stronger so do be careful.

Secondly there's the Sea Monks that can be fished up, level 25-28. These will only aggro on the person that fished them up (even if it's TW to them), and the fisher can avoid getting aggro if they fish with Sneak up. If you walk past a fished up mob as a level 1 with no sneak/invis, you will not get aggro.

Incidentally Sea Horrors are only level 60-62, so if you can avoid his Hundred Fists attack (e.g. kiting, binding or sleeping) it's nothing too amazing to solo.

# Dec 05 2006 at 7:56 PM Rating: Decent
wow... if you consider winning with 1-hit away from dying even AFTER someone had cured you to full once during the fight "cake" i'd hate to see what you would consider a "decent match"

FYI: it's not soloing if someone else helps in an form. i'm not talking about shiva, but rather the whm.
The big thing...

Can you solo this as a 56 war/thf? =o

It didn't aggro me on the ship and I was 11-war/5-monk. Maybe it was honor among Monks??? I was in the stairway on deck...

Also drops Blue rock.
I killed one on the boat and got it.

I think these things are put on the boats to kill noobs so that might be why there are no good drops. But i'll kill one next time i'm on the boat anyway.

I was in Korroloka Tunnel hunting the Morion Worm for a BLM friend and aggroed a Giant. So being a DRG/WHM, I killed it with ease. Then right after a Sea Monk spawned. I was at the little land bridge in the middle tunnel with a river dividing it.

Well anyway, the Sea Monk aggros me and I know I can take it since I usually kill them for fun all the time. However, this one USED 100 FISTS. o.O

Needless to say... I was raped. There was no way I could let off a Healing Breath to save my life... Beware of the Korroloka Sea Monks. >.>

*Another note*
Oh, the Blindness they cause can last up to 2 hours. It's a real pain. >.<

I know exactly what you mean. I saw the Sea Monk exactly where you describe. At first I was startled, because I wasn't aware they spawned in Korroloka Tunnel. So I pulled it, and I noticed the fight was going rather slowly. Since I was signing off soon, I decided just to use Chainspell and nuke it to death. I killed it eventually, but it wasn't easy. All I got from killing it was a lousy Seashell. X.x

I was RDM50/THF17, by the way.

i love watching this thing kill nooblings, it's so funny
# Jun 25 2004 at 2:13 AM Rating: Decent
Heh I controlled these things funny to have sea monk be your pet. Did 70-100 damage to crabs and other things. Everytime I controlled it barely nothing else spawns. Picture http://pics.xs.to/pics/04065/Sea_monk.JPG Also I had screenshots of it going below deck and fighting a sea pugil but don't feel like uploading them.

I was sailing to Mhaura with a 4 person party (LV 10-12, me being the highest as a 12 warrior), and our ship got jumped by 2 of these monks. I checked them and it said very tough, I wanted my PT to take it, we took a vote, and they said no. This is the first monk, mind you.

So anyway, it floats over and starts aggroing this Taru WHM, who beats the living crap out of it, then decides he/she's had enough and warps away with her party. So now the strong tarus have left, and the boat consists solely of about 10 people, from level 10 to level 20 ish.

So we're sailing along, and another monk jumps on. I run like hell, take shelter in the captain's cabin, and I can hear it killing people right outside the door, and a tentacle glitching through the wall. Then someone yells to jump it, we all get out of the cabin, and my PT saves the day! It was fun when I wasn't cowering...the whole ship jumped this thing.

Thank god I haven't met a Horror yet.
killed it

killed it on the boat at lvl 27mnk had a couple high lvl mages on the trip that cured me and casted protect 2 on me through out the fight. all I got was a sea shell do they drop anything else because that isn't a very great drop for a level in the late twenty's beast

it gave me a blue rock

soloed one on the boat to Mhaura, it was not too hard if stoneskin was cast before engaging the Sea Monk, which was "easy" for my Lv 30 WHM/Lv 11 Thief. Also used paralyze, slow and dia as enfeebling.

The special attack did do a lot of damage (once stoneskin wore off) and blinded me long after the fight had ended, but couldn't recall the exact name of the special attack (but heard that move killed most of the lower level players).
