Notes:

  • Timed Spawn every 4 hours by the pool at (H-10).
  • Spams Call of the Moon five times in a row, causing intimidation extremely often. Does not intimidate pets though.
  • Uses Asuran Claws after Call of the Moon squence, hitting for around 500+ damage on a Ninja tank
  • Can use Nox Blast.
  • Seems to have extremely fast hate decay.
  • Depending on moon phase, the nearby Lobisons will not link. If the Lobison is standing up on 2 legs, it will link.
  • Highly recommend a pld/war tank, as it attacks very quickly, rarely misses, can't be slowed or paralyzed, counters, etc. PLD/NIN had incredible difficulty keeping shadows up, and shadows couldn't block Asuran Claws. PLD/WAR with good Def gear and Phalanx 2 shouldn't take 50 damage per hit.
    • PLD/BLU May be more effective. coupled with a MP/Stat Boosts, Cocoon offers the twice DEF bonus as Defender without the loss to attack.
  • Can be duoed by a pld/nin and rdm. Take extreme care to get it away from possible linking Lobisons. Link range is fairly large.
  • As with all Gnoles, it is recommended to fight during a smaller moon phase.
  • He has 25~% magic defense bonus.
  • Very resistant to Slow and Paralyze. Also resistant to Gravity, even resisted elemental seal gravity.
  • Has little to no resistance to Thunder based spells
  • (see testimonials)

Historical Background

The Rougarou (alternately spelled as Roux-Ga-Roux, Rugaroo, or Rugaru), is a legendary creature in Laurentian French communities linked to European notions of the werewolf. The creature, spelled as a Rugaru, has been associated with Native American legends with some dispute. The folklore stories vary from mild bigfoot (sasquatch) creatures to cannibal-like Native American wendigos.
