Plague Chigoe







Bhaflau Thickets




A = Aggressive; NA = Non-Aggresive; L = Links; S = Detects by Sight; H = Detects by Sound;
HP = Detects Low HP; M = Detects Magic; Sc = Follows by Scent; T(S) = True-sight; T(H) = True-hearing
JA = Detects job abilities; WS = Detects weaponskills; Z(D) = Asleep in Daytime; Z(N) = Asleep at Nighttime; A(R) = Aggressive to Reive participants


  • Spawned by Quest: The Prankster
  • Has about 5000 HP.
  • Additionial effect: Aspir on its normal attacks with a 100% proc rate. Amount drained seems to be based on the target's maximum MP (it will drain more from a mage than it will from a BST/WHM, for instance).
  • Attacks extremely quickly, far faster than standard Chigoe. Similar to permanent Hundred Fists.
  • Attacks can cause Plague effect by chance.
  • Susceptible to Sleep, Gravity, Bind. Easily soloable by a RDM or BLM using a sleep/nuke method.
  • BLM Easy Kill: Stoneskin, Blink: Pop NM. Loop -> 3 Times (Sleep2, Heal 1minute, Bind > ThunderIV/BlizzardIV), Burst2 or ThunderIV/ThunderIII will finish it off. If you rested during each sleep you'll have around 400MP left at this stage.
  • Soloable by a SMN75 with Lv.70 Blood-Pacts. Suggested to buff before popping since Chigoe will take some hits (and mp) from you before avatar has hate. After BPing, suggested to run as far as possible to re-summon again, avatar will die quickly. (I used Titan and was able to kill it with 4 Mountain Buster.)
  • Does not instantly die from weapon skills or job abilities like normal Chigoe.
  • Seems to be weak to piercing attacks. Full hit Barrage did 1000+ damage, Sidewinder for 1400+ damage from normal distance and 1200+ at close range. SA with Dagger did between 400 to 500, normal ranged attacks for nearly 200, Penta Thrust did 1100+.
