When I was 40 or so, I ran across these guys and got wiped. Today, was gathering slime oil to make some sneak oil, and decided to give them a visit. Easy pull with xbow (right, then left, then center), fight on each one took a couple of minutes with thf72/nin36. Was hit once for about 150, quickly corrected by bloody bolts. Kept them blinded with blind bolts. Gave 40 xp each.

yeah, i was coming back from the korroloka leeches. I got aggroed by a pug on the way back - no big deal only conned dc and my evasion was high enough that he didn't bother me. Even beat up a worm for no good reason while he was on me. I'm headin back over the last bridge and got aggroed from beneath by a giant and his pet spider. So now i have the pug, the giant and a spider on me and i'm down to about 250 hp - i decided to use flee (still no real worry). I get about arms length from the zone and what happens
"The Jammer Leech hits Reeperbahn for 299 points of damage."
"Reeperbahn was defeated by the Jammer Leech"

Now, i've taken a pretty long hiatus from the game so my question is this.... wtf?!?!?

In other words, i thought the whole MPK was a thing of the past? I know he wasn't following me since i would have been dead a looong time ago, so someone else must have taken him to the zone. Aren't these things supposed to despawn when they leave their area? or is this different for NM?

I believe NMs still work like old mobs, where they wander back to their spawn point.

I hook up with a party invite to Korroloka Tunnel. This is how I was introduced to Korroloka Tunnel for the first time: I walk in and I see two people laying on the ground. I walk a little farther and another person is on the ground. I stop and turn around because I know if I go any farther I'm getting killed. Next thing I know a leech bounces right in front of me and poof, I'm dead. Then I start hearing shout outs for people needing a raise and people asking to have it killed. Someone couldn't handle it so they brought it to the entrance for noobs like me to get killed. I get raised (before it's killed) then the next thing I know I have to be raised again, only this time I accepted a raise after it was dead. Finally, someone in my party went back to their mog and got their 75 NIN and took care of it. Come to find out, it killed at least 10 at the entrance.

I was running through the tunnel as a 65 blm, I heard a little noise out of the right side of my speaker, and i stopped turned around, and had a jammer leech taking down my stoneskin.. just for everybodys information.. they do travel outside of that cave..I don't actually know why he was in the middle of the tunnel. but be careful if your a mage.. he attacks faster then you can get spells off.

I had a rather adventurous friend that liked to drag me around to mean places. As a 45PLD/22THF and he a 18WHM/9BLM, we were going sightseeing in the Altepa Desert. We strayed and found this SOB's. I heard aggro, and see my friends hp go from full to red in one hit. I freak, throw up Invincible and make haste to zone. They dont seem to stray far from their enclave because I made it to zone with no problem. My first encounter with Jammer Leeches.
Thinking I was cool, I came back as a 60PLD/30WAR to engage one of these mobs. It beats me like a drum and once again, Invincible >>> zone.
Finally, at level 71PLD/35RDM, I came back for my final run at this evil creature. Stoneskin+phalanx up entire fight. Not really much problem with 1 so I proceeded to kill the other 2 just because I could.
Veloura, you have been avenged my friend.

All-in-all soloed pretty easily as a NIN57/WAR28 O.o;

Edit: 200Exp from these.

I was RDM75/NIN37 at the time that I killed it. (Yes I know, RDM/NIN can solo almost anything..)

Anyway, I got 28 exp from it with only me in the party in the tunnel.

<MNK71> anyway as soon as it hit me for 150hp, none critical, i hit my 2hr. He went down after two ws. I got 39 exp from it.

Lv 57: 200xp
Lv 71: 39 xp
Lv 75: 28 xp

All three of these pieces of data yields a mob level of exactly 60, based on solo exp charts.

Well beings that this site is saying two diffrent levels for these little suckers. I figured Id post a little input.

Went into the tunnle the other day to head to Bastok from the desert after helping a friend with rank 6 missions. And decided to take the chance of killing one of these guys.

I buffed up, stoneskin, protect 4, phalanx, utsusemi. And inch myself into the room slowly to not aggro all of them.

Get close enough, and cast paralyze to pull one of them. Luckly no link.

Anyway, killed it with ease, seriously a joke from what people say about these guys.

I was RDM75/NIN37 at the time that I killed it. (Yes I know, RDM/NIN can solo almost anything..)

Anyway, I got 28 exp from it with only me in the party in the tunnel.

So Id say they are about Lv 68-70.

He hit my twice when shadows were down and ate stoneskin for about 125, nothing major. But it was an easy kill. All in all, they arnt hard, and I dont see how people say a party wiped to them lol... they die fast.
stupid Nm!

LoL wtf. I was running around looking for giant clams for venerer ring quest (sam55/thf27), and then sighted one of these guys. I was so excited after check that it was impossible to gauge that i didnt notice there were 3 of em. I was also absolutely sure that i could take em since the tunnel is pretty low lvl, but then after it aggroed and hit me (for 200 hp) I just hit flee and got the **** out of there XD Linked all 3 leeches and got me down to 36 hp REAL FAST, but thanks to my lovely flee i zoned in time. buff...

Just pulled one with Hojo:Ni, kept Jubaku, hojo and kurayami on it. Was able to solo it while only getting hit 2 times with special attack things, like blinding attack and tp sucking attack. All-in-all soloed pretty easily as a NIN57/WAR28 O.o;

Edit: 200Exp from these.

Had to finally get that rufflesia flower smell off me so the mithra at kazham would give me my dagger of trials (she was pissed when i talked to her without removing the scent :P ) so I gotta go stand under the waterfall and i read up on these "so hard' " almost died" or "all of us died" so I expect a problem. Sneaked, went under the center waterfall. Cast Protect 2, stonskin, blink, and Hymnus just to be safe, but it wuldnt make a difference anyways. Sneak lasted like 3 minutes, then soon as it went down, agro. Lullaby with +2 instrument, didnt touch me. Never ate through both stoneskin and blink for about 8 minutes (just ot be sure) so its not hard.
Wow... We got Pwned

55? XD You got to be kidding me lol. Two friends and I were just heading off to do NIN quest for our BLM68 buddy and we stumbled onto these. We figured what the heck they can't be too tough for the location. >.< SAM57 died in four hits. He went down first. We were like 'WTF?'. So Jagnon tried nuking the heck out of the one Jacknow had pulled. XD 423 dmg with Fire III I believe it was but it chewed him up too. O.O Can't say I didn't warn them that leeches could be nasty since Jagnon and I had THF sub atm instead of our mage subs. Just didn't expect them to be THAT nastey. When Jagnon started nuking and telling me to run I started casting to hide myself. XD After killing them it just went back on its merry way. Phew. So I R2d them and we sat there laughing as they waited to unweaken. Especially when Jack asked his LS about their lvl. We won't be trying that again anytime soon lol.
Deffinatly Soloable IF ....

Was Able to Solo these as a 64 NIN/ THF. they took me by surprise at first as i was just wandering around and came upon these guys. Imagine my surprise whrn it agro'd me. Well it was only then that i checked them and i got "impossible to guage" . well at that point i went to work "Jubaku, Hojo, Kurayami" kept shadows up and hit them. when i got to the center one by the water fall i got the message for the scent removal, so i stood under the water fall while i was fighting. by the end of the fight, it said scent removed. Turned out to be a good side trip.

ok, so I was wandering aimlessly through Korroloka, and I decide, "Why not go make an ***-hat out of myself?". I headed over to the Jammer Leech camp, see these three little badasses jumpin' around in their fortress of solitude. I get my chi blast ready, hit a 500 on one of them, they link, I take one to about 1/2 hp, and then they decided they don't like me and I go down! I already knew these guys would kill me, but when you're me you don't really give a flying crap whether or not you're gonna die (not emo or anything, just don't mind dying in FFXI).

Moral of the story: Jammer leeches don't like being Chi Blasted. Go figure! -_-;;

pretty strange...i could solo the first one easily as sam74/thief37. i only lost about 300HP.
but the 2nd one was hitting me for about 150-180 dmg each hit :(
Lmao wtf?

Yeah, I was taking a friend, a 50 monk, wander aimlessly in hopes of doing the ninja quest.

I decided to take a look inside the room and sure enough, these were NM's. There were 3 of them at the site, but I wanted to see how strong one was. So I ran in front and got aggro. It was a bit strange, but I figure "How bad can it be to a 71 DRG?" Well, it was pretty bad. ^^; It ended up smacking me good for about 189 dmg until I had to scream to my friend to get out. Super Jump + Wyvern sacrifice was out only option. Luckily, no one died-not even the wyvern.

No way in HELL that it's 55.

You know... I had a bad experience with this guy. ><

A friend in the LS i'm in was ready for Eastern Altepa Desert and asked for help in getting there and finding the altepa crystal. I dont have the crystal so decided to help him out, and myself. So we get to Bastok and head out to Zeruhn Mines. As we head toward the zone for Korroloka Tunnel there is someone on their knees healing. I check him and it's a 56SAM (I believe it was). So, I zone... As I run down, I stop. There must have been around 20 leeches or more, no lie. I tell my friend in /p "Heh, that guy must have been training them." So, knowing that these leeches won't aggro, I run. I only take about 5 steps and in the blink of an eye... I fall to the ground. My friend was like "Dude, WTF??" He quickly zones. Me... I'm just sitting in my chair lost in thought.. Thinking "WTF just happend?" I scroll up and I see that I was getting hit for 200+ by Jammer Leech and like 30-40 by other leeches. Then there's a /shout "Warning lvl70+ NM at zone". So i got a raise, and asked the guy to invisible me, and he did.. I went to zone... Dropped. Figures.. I needed sneak. I just HP'd and had friend wait.. He zoned to check it out... Died. Before I got there, he told me that 3 high lvls killed it.

yah.. don't mind the long story.. I was just amazed at how quickly i fell. :)
Fun to kill atleast, wish dropped something...
# Aug 02 2005 at 10:41 AM Rating: Decent
be nice if these actually dropped something worth while, killed them for the fun, before I knew they didnt drop anything, was helping a friend with ccc, and decided to go into the room, just wish they dropped something, was fun to kill them atleast...
not that hard
# Aug 01 2005 at 1:58 PM Rating: Decent
Psh yes they probably are about lvl 63, i am 61 and i was done farming about to use warp so i decide to fight one for the heck of it, im nin so i put ut utsusemi, and pull one of the leeches over near a puddle since if anything goes wrong i can just walk in the water and lose aggro. So i start fighting, cast the normal buffs, it barely can touch me. once utsusemi was down ni was already for recast agian, i repeated this for about 4 minutes, i had it down to in between 1/2 and 1/3 hp. Utsusemi goes down for a few and hes hitting me for 150~250. i got down to about 300 hp so i used 2hr, didnt think to run thru puddle. Id say 2 people lvl 60+ can duo this if one of them is good at blink tanking.
