Notes

  • Spawns at (F-9) of map 2 in Garlaige Citadel (S). 4 hours after last death/despawn.
  • Possesses an Auto Ice Spikes and Enblizzard/EnparalyzeExclamation effect.
  • Resistant to all non-Fire based elemental magic.
  • Wields a Great Sword, and uses all the regular Great Sword weapon skills, plus Grim Halo.
  • Retaliates against magic with instant cast Blizzard IV, but can only counter every so often. (When time nuking with several BLMs, the first one to land gets Blizzard IV back.)
  • Has a very high natural regen.
  • Absorbs damage dealt by Job Abilities. eg: Shield Bash, Eagle Eye Shot, etc, however does take normal damage from Quick Draw.
    • Does not always seem to absorb Job Ability damage. Shield Bash has been used and dealt damage to Elatha
  • "Levels Up" several times during fight.
    • Has a maximum level that it can reach.
    • Seems to level up after any form of Magic is cast on him, I.E, Nukes, Flash, Stun, Etc etc.
  • Uses Draw-in similar to that of the Minotaur. When you attack the NM it will draw everyone in the alliance to it, you cannot kite the NM more than 20-30 yalms from where it spawns. Anytime someone with hate is too far from the NM, everyone in the alliance will be drawn in to the center of the NM.
  • Uses ice-based blue magic such as Cold Wave and Frost Breath, and ice-based black magic such as Blizzaga III, Paralyga and Bindga.
  • His Blizzaga III spell is not very potent, deals about 300 damage with Shellra V on.
  • Will absorb physical combat damage while mid-cast or mid-weapon skill. Will never absorb Fire-based elemental magic.
  • Despawns after emoting "The monster fades before your eyes, a look of disappointment on its face" when everyone with enmity dies.
  • Can use Blood Weapon multiple times below 35% HP.
    • Always pairs Blood Weapon with Shockwave. This combination is very dangerous, as Shockwave has a very large range (15+ yalms) and will put everyone to sleep. Poison potions and the use of Sentinel or Invincible is recommended.
    • Attack speed increases during Blood Weapon as he will not cast or use weapon skills.
    • Seems to have a Paralyze aura for all people in close-range during 2hr. Mages must be quick to Paralyna the tanks so they can use the appropriate Job Abilities.
    • Re-uses Blood Weapon approx. every 5 minutes.
    • As Utsusemi will absorb Blizzard IV retaliation, the use of many Black Mage/Ninjas will allow for an easy defeat of this NM. Even when Elatha reaches max level, a Black Mage in Elemental Magic gear can cast Fire IV for about 800 damage before taking resistances into account.
  • The nature of enmity on this mob is unique. Any actions, regardless of what it is will draw the attention of each of the new Fomor NMs. {IE. Paladin: Sentinel+Flash (hate on PLD). Corsair Quick Draw 66 damage (hate on Corsair.) However, there is a common tactic to keeping hate on the PLD. That being cure spam on the NM. Always casting cure/cure II, banish II, etc. will keep the NMs attention on better than normal means.

Historical Background

In Irish mythology, Elatha (or Elathan) was a prince of the Fomorians and the father of Bres by Ériu of the Tuatha Dé Danann. The imagery surrounding him (he visits Ériu at night by sea on a silver boat) suggests he may once have been a moon god.
