Sacrarium 2


  • Spawned by trading a Fomor Codex to the Stale Draft in the room at H-5 on the chapel map; other Tarutaru Fomor spawn in that room. This is a Tarutaru Summoner/Black Mage Fomor.
  • This NM can only be spawned by a Tarutaru character who has very high Fomor Hate, gained from killing many regular Fomor mobs. If a character's Fomor Hate is not high enough, it will give messages such as, "You start to get goosebumps" and "Your heart is racing" when examining the Stale Draft. If a character has high enough Fomor Hate to spawn the NM, they will instead get the message, "Your common sense tells you to leave as quickly as possible" when examining it.
  • From level 0 Fomor hate it will take 10 kills to bring it to "Your heart is racing". From there it will take another 25 kills to have high enough hate to spawn the NM. (False, 11 kills for "Your heart is racing", and 41 total kills for "Your Common sense tells you to leave as quickly as possible".)
  • After the NM has been spawned, it can be respawned by trading another Fomor Codex after 15 minutes. This will require gaining more Fomor Hate, however; the character who spawns the NM will have their hate for spawning this set back to the lowest level. The Fomor Hate required to spawn this NM is also reduced automatically over time.
  • Special Attacks: Astral Flow (summons an Avatar to use it with) for ~300-400 damage; both black and summoning magic.
  • The NM will summon a random Elemental. When the NM uses its 2hr it will summon an avatar of the same element (ie: If he has a Dark Elemental he will summon Fenrir).
  • With the June 2010 update removing the level cap from this area, this mob is easily soloable by most jobs at 75+.
