Zeni Notorious Monster (Tier I)

Claret

Zone Level Drops Steal Spawns Notes
Mount Zhayolm Unknown
  • ???~??? gil
1 Aggressive, Detects by sound, Follows by scent

Notes:

  • Spawned by trading Pectin to the ??? at Mount Zhayolm (J-8) (in the tunnel, at the drop-off point).
  • Claret does not appear to perform any normal attacks, relying instead on TP moves only. TP Moves of note include:
  • In addition, Claret "attacks" by sitting on top of the player who has hate. While on them, it inflicts a poison effect with 100hp/tick Damage. The Poison generally lasts 3-5 ticks, unless Claret remains on top of your character.
  • Claret does not drain HP while sitting on players, but it does have a high Regen rate (about 1% every 30 seconds).
  • This poison effect overrides the effect of Poison Potions.
  • Moves with enhanced movement speed.
  • Susceptible to Gravity.
  • Cannot be slept.
  • (see testimonials)

Historical Background

Claret is the English word for a red wine from Bordeaux. In Medieval English, claret was a spicy drink made from combining red wine with a mixture of spices (anise, fennel, cinnamon, cardamom, and caraway, among others). More recently, claret is used as slang for "blood" in certain areas of the UK.
