  • Highly recommended to fight with lock OFF so you can turn around if/when it uses Mortal Ray.
  • Mortal Ray can be avoided using one of three methods:
  • Having a White Mage cast Cursna on you, though the chances of this working are low.
  • Use a bottle of Holy Water on yourself; this is not a 100% chance of working.
  • Simply turn around before it has a chance to use Mortal Ray.
  • If you are blinded, Mortal Ray has a chance of not taking effect, even if you are facing the mob.
  • If BST, use Heel to turn your pet around before Mortal Ray goes off so it does not get killed.


Historical Background

Taurus is traditionally the second constellation out of 12 in the Zodiac. It represents a bull. Cultures as far back as the Stone Age associated it with the bull (though some of these cultures may have viewed Taurus as an auroch, a giant bull which makes modern bulls look small. It had long horns, like the constellation). It is an Earth-element sign and a Fixed sign (signs considered to have determination and stubborn refusal to change their position/view). Taurus governs the 2nd house (values, possessions, security, stability, self-worth, resources) and is ruled by the celestial body Venus, a planet it shares with the zodiac sign Libra (though one of those two signs may be assigned to the new 10th planet discovered in 2005). Taurus as a constellation is bounded by Aries, Gemini, Cetus, Orion, Perseus, Auriga, and Eridanus. Its named stars are (from Alpha to Eta): Aldebaran, Elnath, Prima Hyadum, Secunda Hyadum, Ain, Alheka. The Pleiades, a bright star cluster of ~500 stars (of which 7 are distinctly visible) is also found in the Taurus constellation. Traditionally, people born from April 20 to May 20 are considered Taurus. Taurus is Latin for "Bull".

In Greek mythology, this constellation represents Zeus when he took the form of a white bull in order to traverse The Sea (an area of the sky filled with several aquatic-themed constellations) to win Princess Europa from her father, King Minos, as his mistress.
