Newton Movalpolos NMs


  • Spawned by trading an Air Tank to the Moblin Showman at (I-9). The Moblin Showman will disappear, and reappear 15 minutes after Bugbear Matman is defeated. The Moblin Showman appears on the lower half of the drop-down at (I-9), so it does not require crossing the Rusty Lever bridge.
  • Can be Reposed, but resists other forms of sleep including light and dark based spells/songs.
  • Susceptible to paralyze, but resists slow.
  • Special Attacks:
  • Flying Hip Press - 400-700 AoE Wind damage. Baraera recommended to reduce the damage.
  • Earth Shock - 200-700 damage. The range is much smaller than that of Flying Hip Press.
  • Heavy Whisk - Used a lot later on and can cause more problems than Flying Hip Press depending on party setup.
  • Has extremely high TP recovery, thus it is recommended to have only one person melee, or a minimum of Subtle Blow IV or Auspice on all melee.
  • Can be defeated by 6 characters at level 70, 3 at level 75 and solo by some jobs at 75. (see testimonials)
