  • Spawned by quest: Pieuje's Decision.
  • Spawned by trading a Tavnazia Bell to the ??? located on first map (J-10). The ??? respawns 15 minutes after the NM's death or despawn.
  • The NM only drops one Tavnazian Mask, meaning it must be fought once for each party member that needs the quest completed.
  • Shadows in the room can link with it, which respawn every 16 minutes.
  • Uses Manafont.
  • Casts black magic spells, including Dispel and Tier 3 and 4 nukes. Will also casts tier 3 -ga spells (Waterga III verified.)
  • Has an En-Aspir effect on physical attacks that is very potent.
  • Resists Silence, Stun, and Sleep; can be Paralyzed, Slowed, Bound and Flashed.
  • Builds resistance to Gravity over time, up to the point where it wears off right after casting.
  • Only uses Dimensional Death as a TP move. As its HP decreases, its rate of TP gain and Dimensional Death usage increase greatly.
  • Has very high accuracy, but attacks very slowly. Full haste gear was more beneficial than evasion gear for NIN tanking.
  • This NM appears to have extremely strong elemental resistance (takes approximately 30-40% of normal magic damage when unresisted).
  • Killable by: Party of 3-6 level 75 characters, an alliance of 18 level 65 characters. Soloable by certain level 75 jobs.
  • Defeated by a 75 WHM/BLM and 75 DRG/WHM with level 68 soothing healer NPC. Difficult fight, used both Spirit Surge and Benediction.
