i killed this nm today as thf75/rng37 (nm scouting) and got an malebolge mandral item descripton says "a hellishly warped mandrel said to have the power to twist its possessors soul." NM seemed to have signifigant TP regen as it used berserk as its only tp move every 10-20secs it also seems to have a mild bloodweapon effect for a short duration after each use of berserk tp move it opend fight with a berserk > blood weapon combo suprised me it took me down to 70% hp i swapd in boxers mantle and had to call npc cause it hits kinda hard 147 opening hit then 80-90's rest of fight used lvl 69 soothing npc as cure5 spam but it seemed to have realitvly low hp a single danceing edge took out 30% roughly of its hp i didnt see it spawn i op'd into glacier wide scan and saw funny name mobed so i checked it out. i couldnt find any info as for what this item is used for so i thought i'd add my exeperince today here. my pc is down playing on ps2 or else i'd also have a pic of the item writing this comment from my wii >< someone whos better familar with wiki can add in info to main page of nm if they so wish. written by Tace of Carbuncle.
Solo'd on Whm/Nin. Easy kill with shadows and stoneskin. Got hit once for 85dmg, crit for 150dmg. Has additional effect HP drain which only proc'd on the 85 hit for 30HP. All others did 0 from the stoneskin. Hexa did 892 and 1065. As stated above it only did Berserk for TP move. Para and slow both stuck. Tsuzee from Garuda.
rediculously easy solo as BLM/WHM, doing about 5000 points of damage in 4 nukes was overkill. Possibly immune to bind? I casted bind once in 289 enfeebling skill and Hyorin obi (double ice weather at the time) and was resisted. Didn't bother to try again, since the first nuke did so much damage I just stood still and nuked away. Ate through Blink, but never broke through capped Stoneskin. Low accuracy, as the NM missed 8 out of 15 melee attack rounds. - Sovereign of Diabolos
