I'm able to solo them THF24/WAR12... Sometimes I get to the red against the BLM types, but otherwise not a problem. I average about 200pts damage.

EDIT: They do link!!! Go ahead try it!!!!

It's Arcana, not Undead. A Poltergeist is a member of the Evil Weapon family: it's more like a gremlin than a ghost.

They spawn during the daytime as well, and don't dissapear at 4:00.

Arcane Circle (the Dark Knight ability) and Arcana Killer will affect it. Like Ghosts, though, they're much tougher than the check feature would indicate.

Not Linking?

I'd have to disagree with that considering I just died to 2 of these things [email protected][email protected]$!

These don't link. I was too cheap to buy a paralyze scroll (only 1k) so I was hunting acolytes to get one and I saw this post and decided to kill them to find a drop...one walked right by and didn't link while I beat his friend senseless.
wats so hard

Yeah, another random mob that registers Easy Prey when I check it, but deffinately shows another side when I start to nuke it. I had just attained lvl.22 w/ my BLM, so my Taru was @ 22BLM/11WHM .. figured, ok I'm gonna try this once and see what happens / what kinda drops I get. A few nukes and as I was down more than 1/2 and he had barely taken ANY damage.. started casting Warp like a crack fiend!! He stopped me once w/ a physical attack, but I was able to get away while he was casting poison on me ^^ It was one of those moments where you weren't sure if you'd spawn in the town, face down dead. >.< lol, but a good learning experience nonetheless..
EP? not exactly

This things *way* undercon.

A party of five lv15 people can take one down... maybe... with only one death... and you get crap exp from it anyway.

Avoid them until they don't aggro on you, unless you're a blink-tanking rdm/??? ready to throw down Chainspell+Blink, and you're with two thieves who can just SA the hell out of it while you hold aggro. :-)

Cowards. myself a LVL 19 THF/ LVL 9 WHM, and my buddy a lvl 17 WAR took two of these down with no problems, not even 50% life lost on a decent, what are you guys talking about underconning? pfffffffffffffft thats like saying wild rabbits in San doria are a threat to a lvl 45 PAL

These things hit _hard_. ><; Tried to solo one as a level 23 thief (it read Easy Prey), Phfft, I got owned (I was hitting for about 13, it was hitting for 20 +5 add. damage from enaero) and had to haul my Mithran butt to the zone for the Maze. I learned my lesson though, don't play with the Poltergeist. =P

This is another bizarre and thankless situation you've gotten us in.
not undead

though it may come out with the undead, and look undead; My friends, it's not undead. I made the mistake of trying to cure it as i would a ghost or skeleton, but it did no damage and had no effect, after wasting most of my MP i realized how screwed i was and made a run for the nearest zone. Exit stage right.
