  • Spawned during the Artifact Hands quests by checking one of the four torches at (F-8) of the first map.
  • Casts Bio III, Drain, and Aspir.
  • Uses Berserk often and may use Self-Destruct.
  • Like many quest NMs, from the moment it is spawned, Dark Spark shares hate with the entire party. In the event of a wipe, Dark Spark will aggro a player from the party who reraises even when it is not looking, but does not aggro in such a manner to players outside the party that spawned it.
  • After Dark Spark is defeated, you must wait 3 minutes before spawning it again.
  • Can be defeated by a party of 6 characters at level 53; Soloable by most jobs at level 70 and by Ninja, Dragoon or Summoner at level 60, with some difficulty. (see testimonials)
