Orcish Warlord Picture

These Orcs have acquired an almost sobered wisdom from all the battles they have experienced. They have come to understand human nature very well, but of course, still lack their compassion.

Some/all of the information in this article has been culled from various FFXI guides, and translated by Elmer the Pointy.

Becareful of link
# Jan 27 2008 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
i cna solo this realitvley easy on 75thf/37nin granted nothing links.

usually able to keep casting ichi till 75%, the only prob he gives me is shoulder tackle and a few random spurts of no misses, but sahdows take care of them.

if u link id suggest running, this guy LOVES to use shoulder tackle---hit--thunder2 as soon as ur shadows are down, which is easily done when u have a link.

if ur gonna solo i say pull teh dreadnaught out first, kill it, then fight the warlord by the altar. both times i fought him i had mass linkage from the mobs on other side of cavern (last fight had 4 links).

This mob can be silenced easily which can help a lot. I've killed him 4 times now and didn't get a resist once. Crappy drop rate on this thing - in 4 fights I've got 1 fire crystal and 1 drk test :(
Solo as Bst

A Bst can solo this guy, not too difficult either. I would use one pet to start the fight and then pull him to the zone line, leave and call another then just fight him as usual. I used reward twice I think and of course sic when it was up. With my luck however I only got 1 Drk test in two kills and nothing else. The second fight was close but both my pet and I lived. I would be a lot easier if there were mobs to charm around.

Solo'ed by a 75WHM/NIN. Well, I can say duo, since I had back up on the dreadnought that will inevitably link here. And whomever said RDM is the only job that can solo, WHM/NIN is pretty good too, just have to have good gear, and club damage > sword with a RDM. Hexa Strike did about 800 to this guy, and I got tp pretty fast, just watch out for Absorb-TP since the update, or this guy can and will take a while. No quake drop yet, 0/4 :/

hmm no luck for me
# Jan 09 2006 at 7:07 PM Rating: Excellent
I was in a party that killed this and the only drop was Drk testimony. What's the drop rate on quake?
RE: hmm no luck for me
# Apr 10 2006 at 9:57 PM Rating: Decent
well we camped him for stonega 2 were there about 2.5 hours and never saw a quake, got stone 3, stonega 2, stonega 3, stun and blm test >.<
RE: hmm no luck for me

Not to flame you on your post or anything, but it doesn't drop BLM test. It drops DRK test. I can solo this thing NP as THF75/NIN37. I killed it 5 times last night, DRK test every time, Stonega II x1, Stun x3. I got hit no more than twice each fight, with +58 evasion and +7 evasion skill. And I'm a taru...

I see people here that have bad luck with a quake scroll. I just camped this NM for about an hour and it just dropped a Quake scroll. 1/3. It also drops Stonega III, which isn't listed here.

A friend and I was trying to camp Quake and stonga 2, This NM is pretty easy, I solo him as a 75SMN with 2 Fenrir cast and 3 E.bite, my friend was a nin, he was letting me solo it. killed him and hex 3-5 times, nothing worthwhile dropped ... only test paper and a scroll of Stun.

i was hunting my testimony with a few lv. 70+ friends and after we got drop we decided to go kill hexspinner and warlord a few times. 2x 70+ rng's, 2x 72+ Blm, and a 70+ pld and drk we owned him in about 30 seconds. was kinda a disapointment lol.

about 20 minutes later when we were waiting for him to spawn we saw a lv. 75 rng grab him and literally owned him hard. Shadowbind > slug > barrage > slug wiht a hellfire+1 and a few extra hits and it was over rng never got touched.
sound as well?

I'm doing LB3, I have invisible on, I walk to I-8 and this guy is there. I'm like: Hmm, orc, detects by sight..... WRONG. Orcish Warlord hits Ricardo for 234 damage. Orcish Warlord hits Ricardo for 286 damage. Orcish Warlord hits Ricardo for 271 damage....Ricardo was defeated by the Orcish Warlord. I know I had invis on because I didn't appear till he had already hit me. Also I checked the log. Be careful^^

This mob has True Sight. He will se through Sneak and Invis. Best to just steer clear.
I've got a fever, and the only prescription is...more COWBELLâ„¢!!

Fire Crystal
Bronze Leggings
Bronze Subligar
Dark Knight's Testimony
Kindred's Seal
Scroll: Quake
Scroll: Stone III
Scroll: Stone IV
Scroll: Stonega II
Scroll: Stun

How pathetic is it that this guy carries around a bronze subligar and leggings? Almost as bad as Goblin Alchemists that drop Ash Staff.

Also drops stun.

Solo'd easily as 74 rdm/blm, if it weren't for the 2 links I would have lived after I killed him =p
easy NM

1 up skill party of 66~70 we killed him with ease.
DRK test isn't 100% drop
and usually drop good spell for gil
Easy to solo
# Dec 29 2004 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent
I solo'd him as lv73 blm/whm. I won with full health and lots of mp to spare, but I also got to stop and heal in the middle of the fight ^^
I am told a nin or some /nin can solo him decently also.
I get ~130 exp and ~90-100 gil for my work. Out of the 4-5 times i have killed it...i always get crap drops (crystals, testimonies which i usually give away if someone in the cavern needs, etc).

Drk night 2hr is so worthless if he is sleeping. his poison spells are a pain since they get rid of all my blinks and it only takes him a second to go through my stoneskin...thus interrupting long spells. But it's hard for him to cast that when i poison him.

Blm go through so many levels where we cant solo crap...but 70+ we get to laugh at everyone else because we can farm a lot more efficiently and solo higher lvl NM ^^
My next victim: Ose! I have seen it done before by blm..but havent had the chance to try yet.

Lv73 Blm/Whm @ Shiva

I think the only good about that method when youre a blm is that you can nuke after sleeping a mob and kill a lot faster than other jobs. But its too bad that method relies on enfeebling magic, thank the lord for RDM/NIN, the only job that can truly solo lol.

Beastmaster can't solo? [Hmm.]
RE: Easy to solo
# Jun 19 2006 at 2:56 AM Rating: Default
Not in the same way a RDM can, soloing in the game refers to defeating enemies or accomplishing missions/quests by yourself with no outside help. BST runs around grabbing mobs to get beat up for them. So in a way BST are never truly "Solo". But yeah whatever they do sorta solo with their ability to charm, it's what they do, RDM has magic, BST has a pet. But I doubt a bst can solo this mob in Monastic Cavern, I don't think there is anything to charm and everywhere u go there are orcs lol.

i soloed it as 75nin/war........not very fun he had me to 200 life. Hes very accurate and does stupid spells like poison that kill a shadow. Got a fire crystal for all my hard work
Description is utter crap

Basically you go to I-8 in monastic caverns, not the area where the orcish crest is as my alliance found out. We all figured that the Orcish Warlords were only their but we were wrong once again.

The alliance walks back to I-8 in the first part on monastic and clear out the orcs. We killed the warlord easily and destroyed bugaboo. No deaths. Party consisted of 12 people, most of which were level 60. Both NM's were easy to kill and died in under a minute with no one close to death.
Dark Knight's Testimony

I think Dark Knight's Testimony is a 100% drop
we killed this 2 times 1Testimony dropped every kill.

Drops very often but not 100%. Me and LS killed it to get me a testimony and it didnt drop for once when I needed it =/

It's dropped 4/6 for me. Really easy way for a DRK to get his testimony since he can be soloed by several jobs (DRK not included :()

Edit: He's a 15 minute respawn (I believe) so if you don't get it, just chill for a while. The dreadnought in the same area spawns just before he does if you kill the dreadnought before him.

Getting this test for friend atm, 0/2 so far. So not even a reliable 50% drop on it. We have 0 thf or /thf in pt. btw..
