dispel hundred fists?

I'm not sure about dispeling hundred fists but being a paladin, I do have a way to nullify that ability. Invincible! When he turns on hundred fists, I use invincible and I'm laughing.

Some day revenge shall be mine. Just you wait sea horror!

In a recent update, SE said that monsters fished up will only attack the person who fished it unless anyone else attacks it. Does this effectively rid Vana'diel of this beast?

I've seen this thing twice, and was killed once. This just reminded me of somthing that happened last week, and earlier tonight. My first time seeing it, i thought it was just a normal Sea Monk, and didn't worry, until i checked it and the "It's Strenght is..." message and i flipped. Overall, it killed all but 2 people, me and someone in the cabin<i ran to the storage boxes at the front and temp logged ^^ > Tonight.... 3 killed of maybe 20. Me, 472 damage to a 18 WHM taru, someone checking for if it had gone, and someone who hadn't even noticed it and was killing a ghoul. At least i didnt de-level ^^

my story happened when i was lvl 44 DRG.
Me and a pal 44 SAM were going on ships, one after another determined to find pirates and get revenge for newb-massacres. we were proud of ouselves, a lil too proud.
we were killing every mob that popped on ship, alrdy killed 2 sea monks and was working on a third when another "Sea Monk" popped right behind us.
I was like "2!!" and was prepared to rape it as well... only when it aggroed me i relized it was sea horror. i ran around the cabin a few times but 200 dmg per hit put me down fast. sam pal ran around as well and when he was bout to die sum whm cure4 him.... o.O he survied. i got raised but when i get stronger this shiz is mine.

One word. Revenge. Second word. Soon.

Just deleveled to 56 minding my own business and he HAD to spawn atop of me. Cast utsusemi to keep myself alive and shadowbinded it to run, but his range is unreal. He hit me for 150dmg per hit only though, so soon i'm gonna grab my LS to kill the bugger for the amusement. I don't think there is a single person never been killed by this thing, this was my third time >.<

Me and my friend were just playing around going back and forth waiting for pirates (love the music) and we go up the stairs and he just walks up to it and attacks it. Next thing I know, he's running around the ship screaming help! help! help! He ran around like 20-30 times before someone attacked it. My friend died from whirlwind not long after... I laughed for a long time. It took a level 70 ninja about 10 minutes to solo it.
funny story

hehe reading all these old stories reminded me of m stories. ok i guess i'm lucky i seen it 2 times first time, i was a new player lvl 12 whm exploring the world. get on the boat for the first time... go upstairs and see a dead body and a squid hovering above him...i run back check it impossible to gauge. so not knowing what a NM was at this time i just didn't chance it and stayed in the hull of the ship for the rest of the ride and btw myself and that other person were only 2 ppl on the **** =/....

ok 2nd story happend bout a week ago now i'm a experirenced player bout 7 months of playing the gane and i ride boat as my lvl 42 pld go up on deck HOLY $HIT MY MURDERER FROM MY NEWB DAYS!!
i now knew what lvl is was and such but every1 who knows me knows i have an uncontrolible urge to fight NMs. so like it was a reflex i voked and got hit 250 each hit i used invicible out of habit and survived just long enough to take .5 dmg off tehe Sea Horror =/. /sigh one day i'll get you.. one day....

Okay last night me and a friend rode the ship and encountered this thing. I attacked it thinking it was a sea monk and quickly died laughing. Halfway through the ride my friend decided he was bored and attacked it. Was the funniest thing i've ever seen. And then today when we rode again a sea horror appeared and we ran out and engaged it again. My friend even shouted DIE YOU MONSTER OF THE SEA! Not as funny as the first time but still good. So remember the next time you're bored on the ship to selbina because this guy's upstairs killing everything that moves that their is a funny option that involves you sacrificing yourself for the amusement of everyone on the boat. Try coming up with something original for your last words too. that's alway funny.
Killing Fields

A PLD friend of mine was travelling on a particularly busy day. The Ferry was crowded, and suprisingly few high-levels were aboard. Some idiot Lv 24 WAR/NIN runs out onto deck. After an initial shout that "Sea Horror was on Deck!", everyone scrambled downstairs and stayed safe. The WAR decides he can take it, so he casts Utsusemi: Ichi on himself and Provokes it. Whe he realises his Great Axe does NOTHING to it, he quickly regrets his judgement and disengages, also scrambling downstairs, apparently thinking he was safe, spamming Utsusemi all the way. Unfortunately for the rest of the poor sods downstairs, Sea Horror follows him!

It was a killing field. -_- Bodies everywhere. Apparently, only a couple of WHMs lived because they ran upstairs and Sneak/Invised themselves until the ride was over. Not nice stuff.

This thing got me last night. I didn't know what it was, I don't take the ship too often, just trying to get the Selbina Clay Quest finished.
I hear the music before I go outside, and just hit tab to move the target. I ask LS "Is Sea Horror an NM?" They all come back saying yes, avoid the deck. I'm standing behind the door. All of the sudden I get hit for 415, the door opens, second hit kills me. I didn't even open the door. That sucked. Fortunately a WHM was downstairs, cast tractor, raise, invis and sneak, laughing all the time I'm sure. The drop for this thing sucks too. I solo'd VE as a 28 THF/WAR, now as a 33THF/WAR this thing kills me without me even getting off a hit? Damn, I don't even want revenge, not worth it.

Why? Why did i have to die? I was afk for most of the trip but when i came back i wanted to come up top. I open the door to the deck and see this monster staring right at me. I did a quick check which showed it was an nm so i decided to run as fast as possible below deck when BLAM 424 dmg. A couple of people took out the horror and gave everyone a raise. I vow to one day kill this monster if its the last thing i ever do in ffxi. the thought of seeing that creatures last moments fills me with a joy i never thought possible.
truly an evil NM XD
# Sep 17 2004 at 11:28 PM Rating: Decent
The sea horror truly is a cruel NM...heh, one day, im on my way to selbina, cause i jus got ramuh from the mini quest...and who should appear?...the sea horror...and as luck would have it, the highest lvl on the boat was only lvl liuke 54...a blm at that! >< so, the blm is slowly withered to death, and everyone is fleeing away in panic tryin to find a safe place, most went under deck, heh, but someone told me that it cant get into the captains hut O.O so i went in there...and got nice front row seats of watching it kill everyone...then, as my heart stopped, i saw it bolting towards my way, and then, without knocking it jus went right thru the door, and BAM! i died...lol...lucky for me it disappeared and a whm raised everyone ^_^
it struck again

I was on the ship 2 that place in windy so a can do my next misson,then the door opened upstairs i saw him i checked him and he was impossible to guage (i might have spelled that wrong) and he hit me in 1 hit he did 420 dmg, but im only a lvl 9 mnk then i got raised and killed again while i was thankin the other guy everyone upstair and on the deck got killed. Then he went inside but i got raised in town. The thing was hard to avoid when on the ship. When i layed dead by the door there was a message that kept sayin a wh usin sneak and i wondered why then i saw he aggros on sound on here next time ill stay down stairs unless im at least the appropiote lvl or else everything else and most defently it would kill me

an LS member was with me and a few other friends. The ship had a lot of people on it and sea horror spawned. everyone stayed downstairs.

my friend thought it would be fun to provoke the sea horror and then go below deck. x_x

EVERYONE except a rdm in full af who was above deck and stealthed lived.

luckily, there was a whm in mhaura that raised us.

So a while back me and my friend were on a Advance job unlocking spree and we were coming back from getting the Wyrven Egg. I was 25WHM and he was 30WAR. We decide to go sight seeing on the boat instead of a tele. Here i am lighting off fire works, with everyone clapping and having a merry time when i decide to sit. about 2 min later everyone on Deck goes "GASP!" I had 1st person view on so i didnt know what happend, my friend goes "Do not move" I look behind me and i'm staring face to face with the Sea Horror. Lucky i had casted sneak on.... then i see the dreaded message "The effect of Sneak is about to wear off." so it wears off and i get up and start running, it's pretty damn fast (>_<) BLAM 250+ damage, it was the BST quest all over again :/ Meanwhile everyone was down below. So i just end up back in Sandy so i guess everything worked out fine lol :D

So it was me and 2 more people Zue and Pajif, we were all about level 11 or so. We went a while back because my friend vegabound and osmate where telling us that we should go and join the fishing guild. First it was just me and pajif and we went all the way into la theine and found Zue who was heading there as well. We rushed to valkurn and seeing everything IT and VT was really intimidating so we had to be really careful we kept passing selbania and pajif actually got lost and got killed twice trying to get through a cave(we had already passed the outpost so he put his hp their). We finally get into Selbania mark are home points and pay 100 hundred gil to go to the ship. Curious as to what happens on this ship me and pajif went up.

AND THERE IT WAS. Me a pajif had walked right into sea horror fortunatly he was in a battle with somebody so we went up and checked it. When i saw it said it was to powerful to be gauged we tryed to run downstairs again and the second i opened the door it went something like this:

So and so was defeated.
Sea Horrow hits Xelltrix for 801 points.
Xelltrix takes 801 damage.
Xelltrix is defeated by Sea Horror.
Xelltrix levels down to level 10
Sea Horror hits Pajif for 900 points.
Pajif takes 900 damage.
Pajif is defeated by Sea Horror.
Xelltrix: F*** that ******* thing was just fighting someone.
Pajif: I died AGAIN.:/
Zue: Don't worry there is someone who can raise.
Xelltrix: F*** I already left.
Zue: Sorry
Pajif: :) i didn't

SO i waited for the next boat and took it buit stayed on the first floor the rest of the way.
FU everyone!

<3 Sea Horror

[I was a level 18 RDm during this story...now 17)

Yes, my first time on the ferry ride I was taking out by this terrifying monster...twice on the same boat ride.

Well, i was wandering around the ship, with nothing really to do.

So, I equipped my fishing pole, and fished away for about 5 minutes.

No bites, oh well...I'll enjoy the scenery!

While walking around the deck.

I see a very curious message pop up on the screen.

"-someone- caught a monster!"

Lo and behold.

Sea horror.

My curiosity was going mad, I wanted a snap shot of it, so I took one from afar.

I didn't like the angle, so I walked a bit closer, and what appeared to be the things head...turned toward me...writhing ever so closer...

Not knowing of it's Aggro tendancies...I snap the picture!

So, I turn tail, and head back up the stais (near the captains hut)...*BOOM* 465 Damage.

There I am, sprawled across the ground, like an unloved rag doll.

Now struck with fear of this immensly strong creature, I wait on the cold hard wood deck.

Then, a polite Japanese WHM raised me, I thanked her...

Still at risk with the Sea horror, I head to what would surely be safety from all harm....The capitans hut.

Save at last...

But wait...There's the Sea horror, directed in my direction again. I had no worry's...for this thing couldn't possibly fit through the door, nor could it attack me...I was in a hut safe from all the elements!


Level decrease.

And various "lol's" from two fisherman with sneak on.

Well, I sat lied there for the remainder of the journey.

And when we docked, and were on dry land. The same WHm raised me again.

I said many thanks to her, and her companion.

And made my way to windurst, Awaiting my adventures that lie ahead.

Moral of story: You shall never, ever be safe in the midst of a Sea Horror, fear for your life, your welfare and wellbeing...That thing is the embodiment of satan....Fear the hell creature!

I just beat this guy last night, and lemme tell you, it was one heck of a fight! So here I am, riding the ferry, heading back to Windurst, and I secretly wish for the Sea Horror to spawn so I can see if I can take him out. The last time he had killed me was when I had foolishly gone AFK on the deck at about Lv55.. and revenge was on my mind.
I go up to the deck and lo and behold, there he is!

Seeing as how he'd be easy prey to me, but knowing that he's an NM and with the knowledge that he uses Hundred Fists, I ask if anyone else on the boat is Lv60 or higher. A moment later I get a /tell from a Lv75 Tarutaru female WHM named Gully, whom I presume was Japanese from her mannerisms and speech. We party up, buff with all the appropriate spells, and I eat a meat mithkabob. I always keep a stack of mithkabobs as well as pies on me, as my role in a party or solo may change depending on what I'm fighting, and it's good to be prepared for things like this.

Anyways, I hit the Sea Horror, expecting to do minimal damage with my blade, when the first strike lands for 65 damage, not even counting the Enblizzard damage. Nice! Being part Dark Knight is fairly handy for such things. I cast all the standard debuffs as well as Absorb-MND, all of which land on the first try. I start thinking this is going to be pretty easy, as I can simply Dispel his Regeneration move and Gully is tossing a few Cures, saving my mana pool by quite a bit. For reference, she was wielding a Light Staff and hitting for about 1/2 the amount I was averaging (60+).

I use Vorpal Blade a few times throughout the battle, doing roughly 300 damage.. which means that either all 4 strikes landed and I wasn't getting criticals on any of them.. or 2 strikes landed and I WAS getting criticals. Either way, that's "standard" damage from Vorpal at 100 TP, and I'm not disappointed at all.

By this point the Sea Horror is down to about 50% HP and then it activates Hundred Fists. That's when things start to go bad, as it pounds away my Stoneskin within seconds and is hitting me for about 60-80 damage a strike; as Phalanx just had to fade at the same time.

So, I decide to do what Tarutaru do best.. run away! I cast Gravity and it sticks, long enough for me to kite the ******* around the deck until Hundred Fists wears off. I tried to stand my ground initially but between Phalanx going down and my Cure IV getting interrupted (even with Aquaveil), I figured that was the safest and most logical alternative.

With the danger past, I toss up a fresh Phalanx and Stoneskin and then Convert, hoping I don't get hit by double criticals; which could potentially take down my new buffs. He misses two strikes and hits for 0 with the next, giving me ample time to cure myself back to full. The Sea Horror is down to about 25% HP now, and then.. the dreaded message.

We are nearing Mhaura.

Without a word spoken, Gully begins casting Holy and Banish spells as fast as possible, and I activate Chainspell and cast Blizzard II over and over, hitting for about 250 damage each time. The Sea Horror dies, drops a Shall Shell which we both successfully lot for (and Gully obtains) just as the screen starts fading out.

I thank her in Japanese a few times, as I know a bit of romaji, and we go our seperate ways, while I proceed to brag about it/be happy over defeating an NM which has loomed as predator (and comic relief) over the ferry since I began the game.

Basically, I think if I had eaten a fish cheifkabob for defense and had some potions on hand I probably could have solo'd the Sea Horror myself. But given issues such as lag, being interrupted and the fact that time is an issue when battling him, I'm gonna wait a bit before I purposely try to battle him again.

For reference, Gully only used up about 20% of her mana pool; not counting the Divine Magic spamming in the last minute of the ferry ride, so x-potions probably would be sufficent to take down this NM at such a level. I'd also like to point out that I managed to hold hate for the entire battle, which is pretty good considering I was hardly curing myself and that I never used Last Resort or Souleater for aggro due to fear of either move killing me..

Ok, I'll stop rambling now.. as you can tell, I'm just happy as heck to have finally killed the Sea Horror. ^^
