Spawned: H-8 on the third map


  • Is highly resistant to Fire magic.
  • Killable by 6-18 level 70+ players. It is recommended to have at least two party members dedicated to Stun duty to stop its Firaga III, its most damaging attack. Also, anyone not meleeing Hakutaku should face away from it to avoid possible paralysis from Hex Eye. Party members should not spend too much time standing behind the tank(s), for the same reason. Even taking these precautions, healers should be prepared to cast Paralyna many times. (See testimonials)
  • Builds resistance to Gravity over time, but returns back to normal over time. Landed 6-7 times before getting resisted 6 times in a row. 15 minutes later, it stuck 6 times in a row.
  • Will despawn quickly (about 2 minutes) if left unclaimed due to a party wipe.
  • ??? reappears 15 minutes following Hakutaku's death/despawn. Many groups fighting this NM have multiple people who want the Optical Hat, so keep this delay in mind when gauging how much time you will need to complete all the fights you need.

Historical Background[]

In Japanese and Chinese folklore, the Hakutaku (or Bai Ze) was a creature with 9 eyes, 6 horns, and a man-like face on a cow or ox-like body. 3 of the eyes were on the face in a triangular arrangement, and 3 were lined on the left side of its body and 3 were lined on the right side of its body. It was known for the ability to speak in human languages. This beast appeared to the Yellow Emperor of China and detailed what all 11,520 types of demons, monsters, and spirits were and what they could do. In Japanese temples, the Hakutaku's image is used to ward off disease and disasters.

Hakutaku's spawn item, Hakutaku Eye Cluster is tied to ancient Chinese philosophy, specifically in its ingredients. Hakutaku Eye Cluster is made from 5 different Hakutaku eyes. Each of these eyes represents 1 of the 5 Chinese elements, specifically Burning Hakutaku Eye represents Fire-element, Damp Hakutaku Eye represents Water-element, Golden Hakutaku Eye represents Metal-element, Wooden Hakutaku Eye represents Wood-element, and Earthen Hakutaku Eye represents Earth-element.
