Physical Qualities Magical Qualities
  • Spawns at 50% HP with only 1 head. In its initial state, Tinnin cannot be defeated; when its HP reaches 1 it will become invulnerable to all damage.
  • Periodically Tinnin will regenerate one of its heads. The first time each of the other 2 heads is regenerated, it will also recover 25% of its HP. Subsequent regenerations can occur, but they will not restore as much of Tinnin's HP.
  • Once both heads have been regenerated at least once, Tinnin can be defeated.
  • Because Tinnin is generally more aggressive while at lower HP, it is advisable to not engage upon spawning in order to allow it to regenerate both of its heads before starting to attack it.
  • Whenever a head is restored, Tinnin will enter a mode where it will continuously turn to face the target with hate, and will perform Barofield followed immediately by Polar Blast. If the 3rd head was regenerated, Polar Blast will be followed by Pyric Blast. Note that because Tinnin will always face the target with hate during this combo, the breath moves will do significant damage to that target (approximately 700-800).
  • Polar/Pyric Blast may still be used normally outside of this combo (if the appropriate heads are still present), so it is advised for the player with hate to move away from the front of Tinnin once the combo is finished.
  • Has a fairly weak Auto Regen at all times.
  • It is possible, like Hydra, to take the heads off once they are replaced the first time.
  • Unlike the normal Hydra, elemental damage is effective against Tinnin.
Further Notes
  • Has Alliance Hate.
  • Not aggressive after returning to its spawn point.
  • If drawn in, you are not automatically the target of the TP move, so it is still important not to get hate from behind as this can result in a Serpentine Tail
  • It is also worth mentioning that like Wyrm and Wyvern type mobs, Tinnin is also susceptible to Eyes On Me due to Monster Correlation.
  • Approximately 33 yalms long from heads to tail.
  • It is possible through the dropping of crystals to exceed the 10 item limit. In this case the first item in the treasure pool will be allocated to someone randomly in the alliance. This is always Hydra Meat.

Historical Background

In Arabic mythology, Tinnin (التنين) is a fire-breathing snake-like dragon. He is analogous to the Persian Thu’ban. Tinnin is Arabic for “dragon” or “serpent”. Al Tinnin is the Arabic name for the constellation Draco.
