A tense fight, but very doable as a RDM47/BLM23. I took out two Thread Leeches to build TP, then fully buffed (Stoneskin, Phalanx, Blink, Enthunder, Aquaveil, Refresh, Ice Spikes) and touched the ??? with almost-full HP and MP.

Immediately after the leeches spawned, I cast Sleep II and Sleep on two of the leeches, and started engaging the third.

The next several minutes consisted mostly of me chipping away at one leech at a time with Beestinger, while keeping Sleep II on the leeches and buffs up. For insurance, I Converted after the second leech so I could take the third leech without any worries. Cure II was my main heal, plus Drains. No nukes were used, save my final Aero II to finish the third leech in style.

My assessment? {Easy Prey}

As a 52 PLD, they were relatively easy. Lowest I got was around 700 and by then two were dead.

I just soloed the three leeches as a 46rdm/23blm

I built up my TP to 300 by killing the two thread leeches. After that I buffed up with blink, stoneskin, phalanx, enspell, spike, and refresh.

After I clicked the ???, I activated chainspell and dumped 4 aeroga on the leeches, elemental seal <sleep2> one of them, used 300% TP on one of them, cure 3 myself.

By this time the first leech was dead, I finished the 2nd leech and sleep 2 the last leech again. Then convert, rebuff, heal, then finished off the last leech.

I came out with about 350hp and 150mp left.

so you should have no problem at all as lvl 60.

Solo as Redmage?

Is it possible to solo these as a level 60 Rdm/Smn for a friend of mine? I've taken out the Guardian Treant for Sam quest with no problems but I must assume this is more difficult because there's three of these little guys. I've gotten the ninja quest in the past but had a lvl 75 Sam with me... But either way, back to original question, is it possible to solo these with full buffs up? Thanks.

I just did this solo as 50mnk/war.

Hit me for 30-40 dmg per attack, and got me to 600 from 900 very quickly. Raging took off half its HP (did 500-600 dmg), and I just hit 100 fists after that.

Finished with 370HP or so.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 12 2004 at 8:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was going to altep desert (cause my friend needed escort bak cause i escorted him there) Then i find this little guy i thought there were normal leeches then i check them impossible to gauge. So i killed it..... then i got the ruby for carbuncle. So then my friend IM's and says "why u in windy i thought u ere gonna escort me" so then the guy got tred of waiting for me and logged out for 10 days (i figured he was pissed) and in that time i was lvling my jobs. So i called him him and said am rdy tp pick u up and then he turned all happy. ^^

This is the worst post I've ever read. It barely has anything to do with anything and is so far from being grammatically correct, it should not even be displayed. This should be in the off topic posts if anywhere at all.

That is the most rambling piece of **** post I've ever read. Learn some damn grammar skills.

can a 43 brd/bst take these?
# May 25 2004 at 4:14 PM Rating: Decent
so I'm a 43 bard, is there any chance i'll be able to take these if i can always keep the ones i'm not fighting asleep. I'm pretty weak in general but have good equipment, or does anyone know if the leeches are able to be charmed?

thanks for the answers

They are NMs. Immune to charm.

It's technically possible for you to lullaby them and solo this fight, but you'd have a hard time keeping yourself alive while they're hitting you at the beginning, especially since they'll do their usual TP/MP/HP drainkiss attacks on you after so many hits.
soloed it as DRG

Sad story I thought you could get the coral without getting the quest, so I help some friends get it.. didnt know it was a key item.

So I claim I got it so they didnt feel bad and proceed to come back after getting the quest.

lvl 50drg/25war
made sure I was at full health, and had Penta Thrust waiting for the first leech. (this is post-patch) hit first one a few and knocked it down, taking close to 300 damage from the combined leeches. I proceeded with Defender and continue hitting them, and shot off another penta to kill the second leech. By the time I started in on the 3rd one I was down to 300- health. Finished it off with 180/989 health and got the coral.

I was very edgy about wether I would actually pull through though, because they were hitting me for 35-45 damage each hit, and with 3 leeches that adds up really quick.

Did it today...er...last night...whatever *glances at time* Had:

Went rather quick.

Is it safe to assume that a group of 3 30s, thf/war. war/drk. blm/whm. has no chance in Hell of ever beating these things?
"Not linking"?
# Mar 04 2004 at 10:48 PM Rating: Decent
Err don't all leeches link? And IIRC, one guide I read said to kill all leeches nearby beforehand because they'd link..

they link ^_^ and yes you do wanna kill most if not all leeches near before hand. Also having two blm is nice cuz you can do one at a time very quickly without getting a high lvl to do all the work.

Killed these tonight with a party of 5, 30 whm, 30 blm, 2 30 rdms, and a 62 rng. It was pretty tough, but with the Rng doing ~2000 damage, it all worked out. Sure was tough keeping the healing going on all of us :) Now to brave the trip to Norg to finish the quest :(
RE: !
# Feb 27 2004 at 5:02 AM Rating: Decent
The fight was pretty tough? Had to keep the healing going on all of you? How long was this battle, o.O? a 62 rng can solo this in 30 sec...or even less.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 13 2004 at 5:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) a 62 Rng couldnt beat his way out of a wet paper bag. Get a War to solo this one for you. SHockwave is all you need.

You must be joking, I had a 59 ranger help me out with this, and he creamed them. I was a bard and kept the other 2 asleep, and he was the only one doing any real damage to them. All 3 died in under 2 minutes.

I'm assuming these are unmeasureable because they are a Notorious NPC, but has anyone checked how much exp they give? that would normally deffine thier level.

What kinda of group is needed to take this trio out?
RE: Level?
# Dec 11 2003 at 4:16 PM Rating: Default
Since these I assume are the guys that go with the NIN quest Id say the lvl recommendations are the same, a well rounded group of lvl 30-35 or one lvl 55+ can solo ONE at a time (sleep and bind others during fight)

This was fun. Took my 50 SMN, put up stoneskin for the hell of it. Got Ramuh out, popped the leechs, two hour, Judgment Bolt. Game. Set. Match. I took 0 damage, and was hit once before Ramuh did his thing.

All in all, hardest part of this quest is the running everywhere...

# Dec 16 2003 at 4:33 AM Rating: Default
i would say that a group from 30-35 with decent tanks could take them, the very nice japanese player who helped me, took on 6 of them all on his one'sies, and he was a level 61 red mage. they did about 65 damage per hit on my level 31 thief though.
