Ninja leeches soloed as 41 dancer ,EASILY.
# Sep 12 2012 at 3:48 AM Rating: Default
I just solo this as 41 dncr/mnk
I can't believe this was considered tough at one time,it was SUPER easy.You really only fight one at a time as you will SNEAK before touching the ???

There is something of note,it seems even though they might be far away and don't link,as soon as one dies the second one automatically comes after you,then after that dies,the third auto comes after you.

All i did was kill 3 leeches prior to build 300 tp.I also added all 5 finishing moves so i would have some fast TP back using reverse flourish,i think 5 moves gives back around 65 TP + or -.

I used H2H for Combo as daggers are utterly useless.These things have very few hp i think someone said around 300 ,so a combo almost kills one right off the hop.

if you want my opinion,as a Dncr for example,i would say you could solo this as a level 37 +/- 1-2 levels. ,which i was going to do but chickened out lol.After i saw how easy it was for my 41.i am kicking myself for not trying sooner.

theif solo

No idea how to play WHM but for the WAR's out there this is soloable
@LVL34 WAR/MNK if you are well equipped & smart.

Get TP before you start obviously & kill the 2 leeches on the path.
I ate Squid Sushi because Bloody Bolts are the key to survival.
Without capped Markmanship it aint worth the effort, don't bother.
R'Acc rings & a few potions is all you need, I used two.

Sneak before you pull, like others have said. Don't forget your oils!
So sneak up & hit 2HR right before you pull.
Acid Bolt @ start then switch to Bloody bolts.
Shield Break ASAP then start spamming bloody bolts as quick as you can as soon as you get hit.
First one will go down fast against Mighty Strikes if Counter & Double Attack kick in.

Take a breath, use a potion if you got them but if @ +85% HP after the first your ok if your well equipped/pimp.

We only need to fight one more, not all three!

Okay, sneak up again & pull the second one, this will be longer fight without 2HR.
If you have capped Marksmanship your okay, Shield Break time again!
Bloodys do not proc on leeches EVERY time!! Maybe 3in 5?
Just keep spamming them.
Use Defender on the second!!
This won't effect the amount of HP you drain from the mob.

Okay, you survived #2?

If the third leech is still there & you have +80% HP then by all means pull it, if you are up for it BUT...

You DO NOT have to kill all three in one sitting to get your key item!

I did not have time to kill the third!
It depopped while I was killing the second, so I used my TP to finish it off.

When I went up to the ??? it didn't give me anything for killing two, so what to do?
We do it again!

There's a cool down period.
The leeches on the path will pop first!
Kill them & keep as much TP as you can.

Once they pop & you kill them both, the time should be close to try again the NMs again.
Repeat the technique above, use a potion after the first kill to get you close to 90% hp & sneak up again!

I killed four of them, two each time.
I got my coral.

It may even be possible to just kill three IDK!
Someone may try it one day.
Just kill one each time & let the other two depop three times?
Who knows?

I killed four, two @ each pop leaving the third to dissapear.
Don't forget your oils before you pull!
These mobs are LVL33, got same xp from these @34 as from a DC leech
on the path.

I want to meet a WAR/MNK like me in-game crazy enough to try this & brave enough to win.

Cherish your XBOW!

Next stop, Rank4 NM solo.
Do Bloodys proc on him?
Who will find out?

So..ya....I went there as my 55 rdm/ 27 blm and I'm gonna have to say the hardest part was finding the area. After a few "(/sighs)" thrown at my LS, I had 2 of them come to help me in the Tunnel to locate the spot. But by that time I had found the "???" and was on Korroloka Leech # 3.
I buffed: stoneskin, blink, phalanx, aquaveil, prot 3, shell 2, haste, enthunder, sneak and deodorize, and touched the spot. I had been soloing leeches in the area for tp (lvl 28-31 mobs) so i was prepared. Started off with ws Shining Blade...
They went down fairly easily. Never got me in the red, barely into the yellow, still had enough mp at the end to convert and go about my business.
My thoughts? 55 rdm's if you know what you're doing, you'll kick @$$.
Now, off to lvl my NIN for rdm sj and be damn near invincible..
Mwahahahahahaa! (mithra /laugh motion)
here i go

well, i'm about to head out to Korroloka again, got horribly lost the first time, and ran into some Jammer Leeches ><;
Got some good directions this time, should be able to find the sons of guns.
I'm a lvl 55 RDM/ 27 BLM... i should kick some leech tail, right? >.>, <.<

Just beat these guys as a 41RDM/20BLU, 100% HP and about 20% MP at the end of the fight, wish I had known it would be this easy, I would have unlocked NIN earlier.

I went in, cleared the room of Thread Leeches, all the buffs (you all know them so I won't bother listing them), cast Sneak and Deodorize, clicked the ???, ran back and pulled them one at a time. Had to Convert when the second leech was about 40%HP. So all you young Red Mages, this ones easy, just remember Sneak and Deodorize so they don't aggro.
Did it

My 42WAR/21MNK and my Friend RDM42/BLM21 just beat these guys with both of our NPC's out. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My NPC almost died but it was pretty easy.

I solo'ed this as a SAM53/THF25. (Yes, underlevelled sub, I know.. working on it ;))

I was lucky to ran into a mage who was doing the NIN quest before me, and he gave me Protect III and Shell II. Probably helped a little. I killed all the Thread Leeches in the area to build TP, then healed HP a little (up till 980/1067). Did Meditate again, and my TP was about 210%. Waited until the Meditate reload was down to 30 seconds, then used Third Eye, a plate of sole sushi and spawned the Korroloka Leeches.

Targeted the first leech, and hit it with Tachi:Jinpu. HP went down to 15%! I thought hey, this isn't as hard as I thought. I hit it two times more to kill it. Targeted the second one, used 2-hour and killed it with Tachi:Jinpu and another hit. Killed the last one with two Tachi:Jinpu. Clicked the ??? and got the key item. HP was down to 500/1067.

Piece of cake! :D

I fought these things at level 30 with a level 69 THF along with me, and he whupped the crap out of them. He even gave me 55 shihei (used for utsusemi) when we were done ^_^ only charged me 200 gil for the whole package
# Jan 10 2005 at 1:33 PM Rating: Decent
These little things are more than I imagined!! I'm a lvl 45 rng/22 war. I tried to solo them and literally got smoked. I was able to take out one in the time frame that it took them to bring me down.

Afterwards, I called on a 41 rdm to give me some healing support. With this, we had no problems whatsoever. Just a little note..... Don't Underestimate them as I did!!! lol

My friend and I hada fun time killing theses. We fought them as a 55whm/blm and 43whm/blm. Friend used bend once when we got aggroed by two more leeches, but other than that, it wasn't very hard.
need help?

**If anyone on Gilgamesh ever needs help with these, please send me a /tell**

I have done this for many people and I do it for free.

Not sure what lvl they are but 2 of them were beating down a 43 DRK pretty hard before I could jump in help.

I did this a few days ago, had a lvl 50War/25Nin help me out and it was....a disaster to say the lease...I am a 31Mnk/15Thf at the time and one leech owned me within a minute...I was eating sand when my War just barly managed to beat him...got lucky and had another pt come up and raise me so I could get my Coral...moral of the story, take more than 1 lvl 50War....
# Oct 25 2004 at 1:57 AM Rating: Decent
51 DRK, I'm about to go try kick these leeches asses. My Battle plan? A new tactic that Ive never tried before.. First.. I'm going to sub WHM. Then, build TP to 300%, activate Blood weapon + Souleater + Spinning sythe, Finish up the first leech with Souleater + Blood weapon still active. Open on the second one with another spinning scythe (should bring the 3rd one down to half life) by this time I predict I'll be down to 1/3 life, Divine seal + Cure III, then start chipping away untill the second one falls.. then move onto the 3rd and open with Vorpal scythe, which should hopefully kill it.. ^^ wish me luck
# Oct 18 2004 at 8:09 PM Rating: Default
think a 35rng/nin and a 41drk/thf can take them?

Dread Lord Tyas

Make sure that you clear the room of leeches first. You'll kill 2 birds with one stone. Why?

1) So the other leeches don't link making the fight that much more difficult.

2) Build TP

When I went there there were quite a few leeches in the area and the two level 50s I had helping me insisted that the room be clear before the fight. So I'm guessing that you will get your *** handed to you promptly if you don't do so.

Good Luck!!!


If you are really hurting to unlock NIN ASAP and your next attempt fails you can always recruit some higher level help. Here is what I did:

1) Shouted for hours for help
2) Shouted for hours for help and offered a 10K reward.

I got a whole lot of **** All.


1) I searched for the Bastok area for any players that were level 50+, asked them for help and offered a 10K reward.

2) Same as one but this time ask ONLY NA players.

The JP that I had asked were very helpful but not a single one had the time right then and there. I was not going to wait anymore and the 10K reward does very little to sway your typical level 50+ JP.

I asked a level 45 Paladin if he knew the quest and he was confident that he could help me out. He even got a level 55 Monk friend to come along. The fight was close, even with their help. Main reason being a 30 Mithra THF does not take the beating from 3 leeches well, even for one round of attacks. Each one of the guys took a leech off me and in the additional 30s for the next voke to take the last one I almost died. If the I did not have the PLD there to heal me I would have been eating dirt.

If could still work witout a mage of PLD's help but you have to make sure that your help will not just rely on voke. The need to use voke, switch targets and engage to get hate off ASAP. We did win the fight even tough a couple of the leeches that were outside of the room wandered in and linked. I was very surprised when the 2 helpers said that they were going to split the 10K. I initially thought that the Monk was just heling out because 5K is not really worth the effort IMHO. Again, I think your best bet is an NA player, they just seem to be uring for cash more than the typical JP.

Kinda tricky
# Oct 12 2004 at 12:15 AM Rating: Good
My linkshell tried them tonight:
1 30 War/Mnk
1 30 War/Thf
1 30 Mnk/War
1 30 Mnk/War
1 30 Whm/Blm
1 30 Blm/Whm

Fight lasted, oh, 45 seconds.

Alas, that's how long it took them to hand us our heads. We're going to go, pick up a few more levels, and come back later.
Things that will help if you try it:
The person that pokes the spot seems to get the initial agro. My monk's hp went down alarmingly with 3 leechs pounding me.
Sleep is good. No Sleep is bad. Use Elemental Seal. Our blm got agro from a bounced spell and went down with nearly full mana still.
100 fists and mighty strikes would have helped a lot... we had fought something earlier and had burned our melee types two hour abilities; In retrospect we should have waited the 20 min for the two hours to come up. Ah well.
It would be a good idea to build up TP on the surrounding leeches/bogy's/whatever, and have your skillchains pre planned (if you need to split group members on two, make sure they can chain together, and setup your timing so the mage can get his bursts in).

Or better yet, bring a high level friend or two.

Tyasa, ZenBassmasters
