Notes - Giddeus:

  • Lottery spawn of the Yagudo Piper around (H-14) on Map 1.
    • Yagudo Piper's respawn time is 8 minutes. There is a single Yagudo Piper in the NM area.
    • On Wide Scan from within the spawn area without Ranger or Beastmaster, it is the bottom-most entry on the list.
    • A Piper will always respawn after the last NM kill about 10 minutes later, but the NM can spawn from that point forward, making the earliest possible respawn 18 minutes. Has been known to go 4+ hours without spawning
    • PH ID = 1B9
  • Uses the Bard two-hour ability Soul Voice.
  • Known soloable around Level 30, possibly earlier with Trust. (see testimonials)
  • Bird Whistle is much more likely to drop than the Bonze's Circlet.
  • Donto Trial 644, This NM must be killed 3 times.

Notes - Campaign:

  • Appears during Campaign Battles as the leader of the Yagudo Theomilitary's Divine Inspirers. They are deployed exclusively to West Sarutabaruta or Castle Oztroja.
  • Uses Ninjutsu in addition to songs, particularly Utsusemi.
  • If West Sarutabaruta (S) is under Beastmen control, Vuu Puqu will typically defend the fortifications.
  • May use Soul Voice.
  • Vuu Puqu's songs are extremely powerful, beyond anything players can match.
    • Minuet will make her regular attacks inflict enormous damage.
      • Minuet will also make Sweep do between 1000 to 3000 damage.
    • Minne will take damage down to single digits for most jobs.
    • Mambo will make it nearly impossible to land a blow on her.
    • March will give her an attack speed close to Hundred Fists.
  • Dispel is strongly advised if you're going to fight this NM.
    • Also be aware of her unit and their songs.
  • Possibly immune to stun effects.
