Tahrongi Canyon


  • Spawned by trading Distilled Water to the ??? at J-10.
  • The ??? only accepts Distilled Water every 50 minutes Earth time. Trades are affected by other players trading Distilled Water before you; zoning does not reset this.
  • When it has progressed from trading Distilled Water, it will give the message, "The sprout is looking better." It can take many trades before the NM spawns.
  • It seems to take at least 3 proper trades to spawn, sometimes more.
  • When a trade is done and the message, "A repulsive creature emerges from the ground!" appears, the NM spawns, and automatically engages whoever spawned it.
  • Around 950HP
  • Easily soloable by a 19 BLU/WHM.
  • 18 WHM Galka with 310hp ended with about 100hp after using Benediction.

Historical Background

In Aboriginal Australian mythology, Yara Ma Yha Who is a small vampiric red man with a giant head and octopus-like tentacles with suckers for fingers. It would jump on top of people sitting beneath fig trees. After consuming its victims, it would regurgitate them up alive, albeit a little bit shorter. If Yara Ma Yha Who would attack the same person repeatedly, the person will continually be regurgitated each time, getting a little bit smaller and a little bit redder until they became a Yara Ma Yha Who themselves.
