Spawn Conditions Companions/Summons
  • N/A
Special Abilities Passive Traits
  • Seismic Tail: AoE physical attack. Highly variable damage; typically does 250-2000 on a Paladin, and 750-3000 on Melee/Mages without buffs. Absorbed by 1-2 Utsusemi shadows.
  • Gnash: Halves target's HP. Ignores Utsusemi.
  • Deathgnash: Resets target's hate and usually attempts to do enough damage to set target's HP to 1, although it can randomly do less damage for no apparent reason. Damage can be reduced to 200 HP remaining via Stoneskin, and as little as 0 damage taken with other buffs, such as a fresh Sentinel. Used in place of Gnash starting at <50% HP. Ignores Utsusemi.
  • Deathgnash is not blinkable, but does not wipe shadows. Very helpful to have shadows up so that when Deathgnash is used a follow-up attack will not take you out immediately.

Further Notes
  • Ranged damage highly recommended to avoid AoE damage and effects.
  • Easily defeated by pulling to the north, and fighting at the river's edge, using height difference in order to avoid AoE.
    • It is recommended melee in range have Utsusemi to absorb Seismic Tail, as it can wipe everyone in range without two or more shadows.
  • Defeating this enemy will earn the player an Abyssite Key Item (type of Abyssite acquired is based on the number of main Abyssea area mission/quests completed (See Scars of Abyssea Quests).
