General Strategy

The following information was copied from the article: The Art of War.

Once the Puk spawns it will attack immediately. After losing 8% of its HP you will get the message "The puk seems restless", followed by another message at ~85% "The puk seems fearful. It seems ready to fly away." Once it is down to 79%, it will try to escape using the tunnel that leads to the Spinner area. It will slow down at what seems to be a random point and despawn at the ledge after the first turn if you do not manage to stop it.

If its current weakness are the weaponskills, you need to use them while it is running, Stun will work on it during this phase, including Stun weaponskills. Jumps also count as weaponskills. Using three weaponskills will make it stop. For example: a Penta thrust, a Jump and a High Jump caused it to stop running and attack again.

If its weakness are the fruits, you will have to click one of the Fruits that spawn on the floor around the ??? once the puk attempts to escape. You will either get a green fruit (useless) or a red fruit (will cause the puk to return). If you get a green fruit, just keep clicking the same fruit, you should eventually get a red fruit after a few tries. You should have enough time for 5 attempts before the puk despawns.

How disguising as Mamool Ja works has yet to be tested.

If you use the correct weakness it will attack you and you will get the previous messages at the same points as before -20% HP (puk seems restless at 72%, etc.). In total you'll have to repeat the process four times before you can kill the puk.

The Carpophagous Puk seems to be weaker than a Sea Puk but stronger than a Puk, making it approximately Even Match in terms of strength.

  • Possible strategies to prevent it from escaping:
    • using a weapon skill a few times.
    • disguising as a Mamool Ja.
    • distracting it with fruit.
