housed this guy as 62 rdm/blm. Key is to keep stoneskin up at all times while poison II, dia II, and choke as well as flat blade keep him at bay. Not that anyone wants to fight him much anymore...but he is still a fun nm :)
Vengeance is mine!

This guy killed my Whm 30ish 5 or 6 years ago when I was a newb.

I've always had it out for this guy, but since he doesn't drop anything
great and he's so far out of the way I never got my vengeance...

However, i was farming the Seedspall pieces for the new ACP missions
with my 75 Nin and I thought I'd see if he was up.

To my great surprise he was.

Let me just say that revenge is a dish best served cold. :D
lol ><

damn i heard this guy was pretty tough but not that damn tough >< kinda jus stumled upon this guy as 62drk/31war without looking em up. my ls had told me he was pretty tough for his lvl so i figured wth why not ..... got my tp up to 300% pulled out npc(49/soothinghealer) then casted bio II, came at me and hit me for 80+ then i use guillotine hitting for 1300+ expecting to see at least 1/4 of his life go down but didnt even see his hp budge the smallest bit ><;figured guillotine woulda silenced him but casted graviga and stonega IV right after that and pretty much knew i was dead by then >< npc used cure IV and then i used guillotine again for about 1100 dmg and still barely ne hp gone lol >< then every damn hit after that was a crit for 160+ dmg lol i didnt stand a chance... for a first time jus wingin it, it was pretty damn ugly lol

no frikkin way is this NM a lvl 56!! Come on are you kidding me? This thing first killed me as a nosy little 45 thf, I had just discovered bloody bolts and felt invincible. So as a lvl 71 blm, i wanted revenge. I buff up and hit it with a water4... like barely scratched him, then i see that it wasnt resisted, so im like ok hes got lots of hp, no problem i'll just ES sleep2 him and heal mp back and finish with a Manafront. So here i go i nuke him down to like 80% health and i decide to sleep him... resist! ok... i'll try again... Resist! Hmm... ok so i call my back up in the form of a bamf 75 drk! But i think man i gotta kite this thing til he gets here, so i take off running and hes right on my butt, then he starts casting that gravity spell on me and i'm like "Yes!! cast you silly mob while i run for safty!!" ... nope Blackjade is drawn in... but he didnt pull me back he just poped right in front of me like he was freddy kruger or something. So i die, but here comes my help. Then he died. So now we both call in some help, now its just the principle of the thing, we want it dead. so ls comes and ya got yourself one ded beak no drop tho :( and i had already called dibbs on it.. boo.
SE should buff this guy.

Give him nice drops and make him alot tougher. I guess he could have been an HNM when lvl caps were low, but now he's a joke.
This was so easy

Lol omfg.. I don't know how so many people had trouble with this guy I just killed him as RDM/BLM 63 solo. He got break on me a couple times before I got barstone and barpetrify on but after that it had no effect what so ever. He only got me into the yellow once. And his stonega IVs did tops 200 dmg to me. Was kind of challenging considering I've never really camped higher lvl nms But it was like fighting a VT crab.. except easier xD.
This thing is nowhere NEAR as hard as I've heard

Was on my way to Sky today on my 75 MNK/NIN when it got cancelled. Being bored, I figured i'd check to see if WarAxe Beak was up, since I've always heard he was a tough little bugger, and even having heard that he wiped a 75 NIN in my LS back in the day. All I can say is..WTF. Stonega IV was hitting me for 150-250 dmg, tops, he missed me as much as he hit me, and the times he did connect, I had shadows up. He petrified me once, but It wore off after him doing about 300 dmg to me. I ended up with a little over 1k(out of 1580 as a hume mnk/nin) when I killed him. Probably one of the easiest "tough" fights i've ever done. If ya want a challenge, go try out the beetle in Batilla Downs, it Insta Casts Stonega IV and hits like a brickwall.

was out tonight farming low lvl NM's when i see waraxe up on ws. being 69bst/34nin i was kinda iffy about taking him on solo with no real local pets worth charming but since i had two CC's on me i figured i'd give it a shot. called pet, let timer run down to 2min recall, familiar'd, and threw jug at the NM. after CC started to gain a little hate i joined in. this lovely bugger used baleful gaze, graviga, sound vacuum, dispelga, stongega IV (*184dmg), soundblast, stongega IV (*186dmg), baleful gaze, graviga, poison pick, breakga, hammer beak (*petrified), stongega IV (*369dmg + 84dmg + 84dmg + 84dmg)<---shadows interupted sound vacuum, and it was over. only 3 skins dropped. i ended up using rampage 3x for about 549 each and CC was able to pull out 2 metallic bodies ( was nervous about sic'n this jug for AoE but lucked up ). the last min of the fight axebeak ate first jug but was able to get 2nd out to finish him. had only 140/1159+hp left at the end of the fight thought. ><

After leaving Castle O I widescanned (75RNG/NIN) saw this daggerclaw fool so I checked it out. Killed him,no drop.. so I looked him up to see what I was missing and read some storys about people gettin owned by this NM Waraxe. Widescanned again and this Waraxe was up also, I said ***** it..
Put up RR, ate food, and brought out my 49 NPC healer. Went over bound him, barrage sharpshot and he drew my in which suprised me. He had np wipeing my shadows cause im a silly RNG. So put on Genbus helm and went at it. He only casted Stonega IV once so that helped. Some dispel's and break's(which I resisted).
After some time and my NPCs help I killed him, got 2 meats and a skin.

Well,after a couple years I decide to finish my selbina clay quest and head to merphitaud to collect the tablet, I decide to check the nm scene since I've never seen one here.Waraxe is up, but hey no worries everything here is too weak, so the nm's can't be much worse right?Well you all know the answer to that question.66 rdm/33 blm btw. The fight literally took the better part of 30 minutes if not more.I was only in "real" trouble twice. Once when I got silenced and the other was a stonega IV with stoneskin down.Got lucky and had an echo drop on me (whew) and must have resisted the stonega IV spell because I took only 180 dmg with shell III phalanx up.Didn't score a drop of any kind but what a fight!Got petrified 3 or 4 times but outlasted it. GL to everyone else who get's into this guy.

I was doing the same thing. DRG72/WHM36, I been teleing around doing map quest. So I look up the position of the monument, and get a little lost. I see him and see he's an NM. I didnt have much MP, but I thought "what the hell, it should be an easy NM" I didnt even realize I was wearing my Republic Aketon until halfway through the fight, and I didnt even have my Wyvern out or my good gear on. So, I call my Wyvern, put on my SH and I cast dia a couple times. But then I'm outta MP. I super jump in hopes of resting, but I accidently use Penta Thrust right after to get hate back. I two hour, but that didnt help much. So I died. And I was pissed. I immediatly tele back, chocobo, and run to his spot. I didnt even care what he dropped or who he was, I just wanted revenge. Had to wait about 15 more mins for my Wyvern to come back.

I soloed him pretty easily the second time. I actually had my gear on and enough MP to heal myself with Dia. Got like 4 meats and two skins. This guys a *******. Good luck.
Well, I knew he was hard...
# Sep 27 2006 at 8:57 AM Rating: Decent
I was just killing stuff... and I remember from before that this NM was a particularly hard NM. So today I was in the mountains on a 75 job [THF/NIN] and I -thought- I wouldn't get aggroed going up to him. Then "Waraxe Beak starts casting Stonega IV."

So yeah... I took 350~ damage...

"Waraxe Beak starts casting Breakga."

So I'm petrified.

"Waraxe Beak starts casting Dispelga."

So my recasted shadows are gone.

"Waraxe Beak starts casting Graviga."

So... I'm slow.

This didn't stop me though! I had 156% TP.

"Embefora readies Dancing Edge. Waraxe Beak takes 664 points of damage."

And then I noticed that took about 1 percent of his life down.

But I stayed anyways. I used Bloody Bolts to get my health back.
And After a good 8-10 minutes, I kill it.

It's not hard, he just has a lot of HP... After adding up my log... It had a little under 12948 HP.

Happy hunting.
Soloed as 66 Smn

I was in the area, helping a friend try to collect giant bird feathers when I saw this NM. I was 66 SMN/RDM (I sub rdm for fun sometimes when I'm ******** around, so no need to flame me on not having whm sub, thanks) and my friend was a 46 WHM/BLM. As soon as I saw it, I told him not to touch it, because I wanted all hate on Carbuncle. I also pointed out where the zone was just in case, and before my friend even moved, Carby went after the NM. It didn't even seem like it had aggroed me, but it must have if carby started fighting without my say so.

So my friend ran toward the zone, and I ran in the other direction so I could get some distance for my next Carby cast. After a few minutes, I see my friend's health going down, and as it turns out, he got raptor aggro. Well he died before I could reach him, so I just stayed in that corner constantly summoning Carby every time I needed to.

As everyone else has said, yes, this thing has a ton of HP. Carby was hitting it a lot harder than it could damage him, and I still had to recast him quite a few times. The tough part about this mob was its ability to draw me in. Any time I had aggro and it was close enough that I could see it on the screen, it would draw me in. This happened three times: Once when I was talking to someone and started slightly late on recasting Carby, once when Carby lost hate and the mob came after me, and once when I got impatient and walked close enough to see the fight, just when it took Carby down with Stonega IV.

Luckily, after each draw in, Carby hit it and took the hate back so I could run away, but two of those times it had already started to cast Stonega on me, one hitting me for around 250 and the second time for 450. The only buffs I had up at the time were Protect and Shell II.

Finally, on my last Carby cast, I got tired of fighting it and saw that its HP was just a little sliver. So once Carby had hate, I ran in and made him use Meteorite, which did around 400 damage, and the thing still had the sliver of HP. So while carby is sitting there beating on it, I decide to finally help and cast every spell I have that can damage it. I maybe took down 100 HP after casting fire, blizzard, stone, aero, and tunder once or twice and I could hardly even see a HP bar anymore, but it was still alive. Suddenly it starts to cast Stonega IV on Carby and I run away, but I know I wont have time or distance to recast, so as soon as Carby drops, I stop and bring out the Fire Spirit instead. Spirit hits it once for 50 points and its down, no tekko drop but i got 23 exp. I think it took somewhere between 10 and 20 Carbys to drop this guy, but I wasn't really counting.

I was heading to Castle Oztroja to turn in a quest item when I decided to check on the NM's in the area. The last time I was in Meriphataud, I accidentally stumbled upon Coo Keja the Unseen outside of the entrance to Oztroja. I wanted to see if my luck had run out yet.

I ran around the spawn area on my Chocobo twice before I spotted him. I had heard stories about him tearing lower-levels apart, but I didn't think I would be phased by it, so I dismounted and buffed up.

Before I got a chance to Reraise, he started casting Stonega IV on me. I tried to Silence it, only to discover that he was immune. So there I was with Protect IV, Shell IV, and nothing else, no time to cast Stoneskin or Reraise, and the battle started.

It took 100% TP and a Hexa Strike to realize that this was not going to be that easy a fight. Hexa Strike did almost 800 damage, and his HP bar barely flinched. Meanwhile, because I didn't have a chance to rest after buffing, I was already edging towards the 50% HP mark.

Long story short, after a 10-minute fight where he dispelled nearly all of my buffs, I managed to bring him down with my MP pool nearly exhausted. If it weren't for my Noble's Tunic, one random Elemental Seal + Aspir, and Benediction, I would have died and deleveled and probably been mocked viciously by the Raptors in the area.

Soloed as a WHM74/BLM31 (I use /SMN for EXP, so no snaps about leveling my sub). Dropped a skin and a meat.
i...hate this bastard....

i was walkin around lookin for Dracos while i waited for a friend in my ls so i could show him around Oztroja... so i dismounted my choco and proceeded to murder a few gobs that were standing there looking innocent...(ha ha gobs...innocent..>.>;;) and while i was on my 3rd gob, this guy popped, had no idea WHAT his level was...so i proceeded to cast blizzard on it (me: 44 Rdm/ 19 Blm, Him: 50something Blm) didnt even phase him, but he turned around and nailed me with stonega IV, AFTER i died my linkshell says "Oh! he's about level 70" thanks guys...that's reeeeaaalll helpful AFTER HE KILLS ME!!!
Died 75 SAM -.-

Was camping Draco the previous night w/o no luck so i log in the next day and checked my Widescan (SAM/RNG). Decide I might be able to take it since i am a lvl 75.. To my dissapointment i was dead wrong. This thing easily has 15k HP. I meditated and 2 hrd taking a 4k chunk off this guy but the punk was still at 75% HP. I was hitting for 150s but taking an almost invisible sliver off the HP bar. I then decided it was time to gtfo so i equipped my warp club and curse the ffxi gods there were 7 hrs till recast.

So i said well im ****** but might as well try to head to zone maybe... ill out run him..lol. Needless to say i ran and the punk casted graviga but i resisted so no biggy.. still tho he begin a series of drawing me in which got immensely annoying. He cast Graviga again but i wasnt able to resist and was pummeling me for 80s.. i kept going after he began casting Stonega IV but that spell has a HUGE range...so i was around 300 HP by then and still running and he was still pulling me back in.

After 4 tries he finally got a breakga off on me and i was screwed after he did a Double Attack critcal. He teabagged me for awhile and then went back to the crater. Just my story on this little punk.. im gonna get some LS mates and gangrape this fhag.

Went for 40-cap Ballista, but noone turned up :\ so I thought I'd make my trip worth while and remembered about an NM in the bottom corner, I headed over as 40WAR/20NIN expecting to see the Raptor NM. As soon as I got there, I spotted this guy. I checked it and got Impossible to Gauge!
I figured that as every mob in the area was Too Weak, he can't be that hard, right? Wrong. He ate my shadows in seconds, then Stonaga IV for 960+ damage. Dead Tatsuki.

His days are numbered on general principle.
oh ya!

Solo'd this bad boy today as 75WHM/37NIN! I went back for revenge after he killed me on THF. Was a tough long fight but if you keep paralyze on him he's not so bad. Kept Stoneskin up at all time so he wouldn't interupt my Utsusemi casting... All that and he dropped and a piece of meat and gave me 15 limit points.

Well I again run across this mob as I have in lower levels and this time im quite ready for it was kinda looking for it in fact. Monk 75 / Theif 37 I started with 1412/1737 hp and I lived with 45 I even used hundred fists which took him roughly 40% of his hp and then i slowly beat him down inch by inch. He has not that good accuracy swings fast. Really not that strong of spells Stonega IV was doing around 200 to me he did it 4 times and dispelga 2 times and graviga 1 time. all in all I got just 2 cocktrice skins for all my trouble oh well it was quite fun.

Oh also if anyone wants to see I recorded it with fraps i dont know how to upload crap so eh.

Tarutaru Abraham RDM69/NIN34 from hades

The fight lasted 15min, used convert once, no chainspell.

Entered full buffed with full MP, it wasnt hard, just need to be carefull about stonega IV, with a pretty dead stoneskin and with barstone just dispeled it hitted me for 400dmg >.<, i always used TP to interrupt stonegaIV with flat blade.

Got drop only, 100k but it was a very exciting battle. GL to everyone who try to solo it.
And I thought Galka's had a lot of HP

I was wandering by as War64/Thf31 when I came across this guy. I figured out would look him up and noticed some of the stories. I mentioned that I see this guy to my LS so couple of them come over(they were in area) (36WHM and 53THF). I bring out my NPC(51 healer) and we figure we will try it.

I start hitting this guy and get 100tp and we have barely made a dent in this guy so I figured I will mess him up a bit. I pop off bersserk, agressor, warcry, might strike and rampage. I see his hp barely go down and think I hit for maybe 300-500. I look and I hit him for 1199. At that point I was like wtf.

We got him down to about 40%hp remaining....whm goes to hit benediction but was a hare too slow and I bit it. The other 2 would die immediately after.

So now we are laughing at this and want to make sure we get him. Thf goes to get his 69PLD and whm goes to get his 64BLM. We owned it with no problems. Got 2 meat, 3 skins, earth crystal and tekko. What made this even better is no sooner had we killed Waraxe than Daggerclaw comes running up to us. Kill him and got knuckles drop from him.
