??? MP
A = Aggressive; NA = Non-Aggresive; L = Links; S = Detects by Sight; H = Detects by Sound;

JA = Detects job abilities; WS = Detects weaponskills; Z(D) = Asleep in Daytime; Z(N) = Asleep at Nighttime
Note: Reive Monsters become aggressive after a player takes one offensive action in Reive.
They stay aggressive until all participating players are KO'd simultaneously, clearing all hate lists.

Notes:

  • Will immediately go into its shell when claimed. While inside its shell, it is highly resistant to all damage except when casting a spell.
    • When out of its shell, or when it is casting, it takes normal damage. It will only exit its shell when Mighty Strikes is active (or when it is passive). It will only cast when it is inside its shell. Time your weapon skills and nukes during these periods for maximum damage.
    • Always takes normal damage from Quick Draw.
    • Has a very slight Auto Regen when inside its shell.
  • Only uses Tortoise Stomp as its TP move - Conic AoE (unknown range) damage + Defense Down. Replaces Turtle Stomp. Blockable by 1-3 shadow images.
    • Tortoise Stomp can be used whether it is inside or outside shell.
    • Tortoise Stomp seems to be used after each Stonega/Waterga.
    • Tortoise Stomp will always be used immediately (if its target is in range) when Mighty Strikes is triggered, regardless of TP. It is possible for it to use Tortoise Stomp, Mighty Strikes, then immediately Tortoise Stomp again. Be wary of a nuke -> Tortoise Stomp -> Mighty Strikes -> Tortoise Stomp combo; this can inflict a large amount of damage in a short span of time.
  • Casts Quake II, Stonega IV, Flood II, and Waterga IV.
    • Possesses moderate Fast Cast. However, it is still easy to outrun when kiting.
    • Does not appear to initiate casting unless that target is within 20 yalms.
  • Uses Mighty Strikes multiple times, exiting its shell and becoming vulnerable to damage whenever it does so. Uses more frequently as HP is depleted.
    • Will not cast spells when Mighty Strikes is active.
    • When out of his shell, he will slowly pursue the one with hate.
