  • Kappa Akuso (Monk) Uses Hundred Fists.
  • Kappa Biwa (Bard)
  • Kappa Bonze (White Mage)
  • Note: Only Kappa Akuso needs to be defeated. Has true-hearing and seems to aggro magic. Recommended strategy is to spawn and run to Den of Rancor. Let Kappa Biwa and Kappa Bonze move back to the ???, and fight Kappa Akuso at the zone.
  • Killing Kappa Akuso or Kappa Biwa works. (Confirmed: Wednesday, May 29th, 2007) Killing Kappa Bonze also works. (Confirmed: Saturday, June 16th, 2007)

  • Killable by: WHM75/NIN37. Zone into Den of Rancor and then fight only Kappa Akuso. Zoned during Hundred Fists.
  • Killable by: 75BLM and 75WHM, using zone to clear hate. Alternatively a combination of 3+ 75 jobs to include tank and support.
  • Killable by: 75PLD/NIN. Use zone to clear hate, fight MNK until he two-hours then zone intro Den. Come back out with full MP/HP and solo monk to 0%.
  • Killable by: 75PLD/RDM: Using the zone to fight just Kappa, Chivalry is Reccomended, 2hr may be required for Hundred Fists.
