    • Achamoth's ??? will respawn 15 minutes after Achamoth has been defeated or despawns.

  • Has a potent auto-regen effect that cannot be dispelled.

  • Every sixty seconds, Achamoth will spawn an Achamothcampa that will spawn with either a physical or magical damage immunity.

    • If the Achamothcampa is not dispatched, it will change into a Wamoura type mob called the Achamoth Nympha. Due to the Achamoth Nympha's high HP, it is recommended to either kill or zone any Achamothcampa spawned.

Info On Fighting This NM

This can be tanked by a Pld/War, doesn't hit too hard, however be ready for Achamoth to drain all of your Mp. I recommend Refresh-Sanction, Parade Gorget, followed by a Rdm and Brd to quickly restore Mp, (this will give a +9 Mp refresh/tick to the Pld since all of these stack and Pld has Auto-Refresh). If you only get a Brd or Rdm 6 Mp/tick will work fine. Also make sure that Pld has Chivalry.

We fought this 2x with 10 ppl. Each time we fought at zone. Not a hard pull to zone, but takes a bit of work. You will need to kill moths are ??? to pop and pull safely. Trolls are between the ??? and zone, so I recommend someone just zoning the Trolls while pulling to zone. Puller will need sneak to avoid aggro from crawlers.

Once at the zone, you only need 1 person dedicated to zoning Pets to depop them, this can be pretty much anyone, but I recommend a Pld/Nin since with /nin you can Utsusemi and Cure yourself and flash the mob from a distance.

Party needs to be made well aware that if they get hate on pets, they must zone. Expample, blm would -ga and get hate and Pet would not depop, then blm would die. The pets actually seemed to hit harder than Achamoth.

Achamoth will Curaga IV and has Regen, which drew out the fights. I think they lasted about 40 minutes. I recommend a full alliance of mostly DDs to drop the fight time.

If you are tanking Pld/Nin, every minute or so when he summons a Pet, you will have an easy Window to cast Utsusemi:Ichi, as the mob doesn't attack much while summoning.

The Tier II Anantaboga was much tougher than this mob.
Has absorb tp move

I solo tanked this, and I want to add this mob has a absorb MP move that took me down to 0 MP numerous times when I tanked it. Thankfully he hits like a wuss. So mages were able to keep me alive.
Organics and strat.

Drops Organics.

Best start is to get a thf to sacrifice pull it to Thickets zone. Have a 2 mages and 2 vokers escort it back to zone. It takes a long time to get there since its a slow mob and casts spells alot.

Have 2 tanks for this, and two other people with voke to keep zoning the babies out. *Note babies will evolve into moths as well if not zoned/ or killed fast enough. Thier stronger form is very tough and has tons of HP. They will be either immune to physical or magic attacks as well. Babies spawn every 60 seconds.

Fun znm if done right :)

According to FFXI Wiki, this ZNM also drops the Organics Sword. I have not verified this myself.
