Spawns amongst the Glen Crab at (G-11) roughly every 10 minutes once Crab Dominion has reached 100%.

  • N/A
Special Abilities Passive Traits
  • Has additional effect: Poison (30hp / tick).
  • Bind Aura.
  • Inside Shell:
    • High regen effect when inside the shell.
    • Absorbs magic damage - in effect all elemental magic damage/Skillchain damage/additional effects damage done to it while it is in shell will heal it. Dot spells will likely be resisted in this mode (such as absorb TP or aspir).
    • Either extremely high defense or extremely high damage reduction; It is highly advised to get as much melee dot dmg on it to get it back out of shell.
  • Outside shell:
    • Lower defense.
    • Can be damaged by magic and weaponskills.
    • May occasionally absorb a magical or melee attack
Physical Qualities Magical Qualities
  • Moves at an enhanced speed (approx +12%).
  • Gains a Stoneskin effect (non-dispellable) once it comes out of it's shell. (Approx. 2k). HOWEVER: once it moves toward rage mode, it will move to increasing levels of resistance.
Further Notes
  • High damage effects may send it inside its shell faster, and it seems to spend time at lower HP mostly inside the shell. it is recommended to keep melee doing auto-attack during this time so it does not heal too much HP. Red WILL proc when mob is inside shell. Blue proc in shell in unconfirmed (red proced on Earth Crusher from nin just today in my alliance). High Elemental Spell damage will immediately send it back into its shell, so keep mage dmg low, preferable t3 or less (atma dependent).

Historical Background

Melo melo (common name: Indian volute) is a very large sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Volutidae, the volutes. The shell is also traditionally utilized by native fishermen to bail out their boats, therefore it is commonly called a "bailer shell".
