  • Spawned by trading Oversized Sock to ??? at F-7 (South West side of the ridge at the top. Do not go down into the canyon)
  • Pulling this NM from his spawn point straight back to the ridge wall will get him out of range of 90% of the Hadal Gigas' patrol routes. Links are otherwise very common and rather dangerous.
  • Spawns with a very potent Ice Spikes effect that grows in potency as his HP dwindles. Paralyze effect is very common, and it seems that the Ice Spikes cannot be dispelled.
  • Favors Ice Roar over traditional Gigas moves.
  • Uses a move called Moribund Hack, AoE Ice damage. Very powerful. Hate reset.
  • Can be Blinded, Slowed, and Paralyzed, but all with some difficulty.
  • Red Lotus Blade Triggered !! on this mob.
  • Tactical option: There's a distinct chance that Wind-elemental WS like Aeolian Edge will lock out Moribund Hack for a while, making this NM -much- easier to defeat. Exclamation
