  • Low evasion and defense
  • Angler Orobon has approximately 12,500 HP.
  • Uses the following moves:
    • Hypnic Lamp - 15' AoE sleep if you are facing the mob
    • Leeching Current - AoE magical "1.000 Needles" with HP absorption. Can be reduced by Shell and multiple targets.
    • Seismic Tail - AoE, 1-3 shadows or 500~ dmg + knockback
    • Deathgnash - hate reset and "throat-stab" mechanics, except instant
    • Seaspray - 500 "breath" dmg (reduced by being at an angle) + slow2 (overwrites haste)
    • Abominable Belch - Paralyze, Plague (10tp/tic), and Silence
  • When it uses Hypnic Lamp, it may repeat several times in a row.
  • Resists sleep, but is very susceptible to Repose. However, builds an elemental resistance quickly, to the point where it lasts 1 second.
  • After a time, the duration of Gravity gets shorter and shorter.
  • Bind builds resist and eventually becomes impossible to stick.
  • It will only use Deathgnash after Hypnic Lamp.
  • Usually done with 6xBlack Mage or 5xBlack Mage and 1xRed Mage
  • Can be done with 3-4 BLM, experience with the monster is recommended however.
  • Can be solo'd by skilled RDM/NIN.
  • Easily Duo'd by BLM/RDM and RDM/NIN.
  • Buffs do not wear upon entering.
  • Mob has true sight and agro range is ~25+. Much longer than casting range, so starting with a timed nuke is not possible unless you first bind it.

Good Luck
