Further Notes
  • It's highly recommended tanks do not face Alkonost to avoid getting hit with Jettatura then being exposed to further TP abilities
  • Can also avoid this by turning when you see him ready a TP move.
  • Can be duo'd by two skilled RDM/NIN, both had 3 stones for 90mins worth of abyssea.

Historical Background

The Alkonost is a legendary bird in Slavic mythology. It has the body of a bird with the head and chest of a woman. The name Alkonost came from the name of Greek demi-goddess Alcyone transformed by gods into a kingfisher. The Alkonost reproduces by laying eggs on the sea-shore then putting them into the water. The sea is then calm for six or seven days at which point the eggs hatch, bringing a storm. For the Russian Orthodox Church Alkonost personifies God's will. She lives in paradise but goes into our world to deliver a message. Her voice is so sweet that anybody hearing it can forget everything.
