a shimmering sailfin

Updated July 25th, 2007

These little fish tend to be casters, they are found throughout Kedge. They can attack casters who are sitting to meditate, or if they get hit by an AE spell.

On occasion they are known to explode on death, damaging everyone by about 400hp.

Yeah, while sitting at a crossroads and having a monk pull Mermaids to us in a raid the other day one of my guildies who is a very impatient kid just HAD to kill the little fishies even though we told him to quit swimming laps and killing the small fish. Wouldnt listen and popped one of these guys. Personally I (42 Warrior with an AC buffed around 809) took a nice 498 damage shot. Not bad for a little green guy.

Killed one with one swing of a sword for about 60 dmg. It did not explode.

There are not enough of them around to be charming them and using them as you wish BTW.

If you wanted to die, you sure could.
A lancer would rip through you in no time.

This are the best pking tools. just look for
someone low on hp and then charm them and send
then to do ur durty work. and then finish the person, they dont even know what hit. If one doesnt do the trick, put 5 of them on the person, who cares. have fun with them assh*oles, lol

if you happen to be a particularly vicious (and perhaps crazy) person, these little critters are excellent means of taking revenge on KSers =)

If anyone has noticed... every person talking about this fish who has cast spells on it says that it takes a lot of hitpoints to kill it.
The fighters all kill it in one hit, but the thing explodes.
Does anyone see the connection here?
physical damage = explosion
spell damage = high stamina
It is a little grenade... and the idea of charming it is wonderful.

Get enchanters and send them in as bombs lol!
They are lvl 2-5.

One of our tanks accidently reposted on one, hit for 68 dmg, killed it, and it blew us all up. The person taking the most dmg took over 500.
Sometimes they seem to be a higher level

Ran into a few of them last night pulling. They tend to get between me and my target and die in one arrow shot, it hits NPCs as well as PCs too heh. Sometimes they would suicide on someone who was sittings dmg shield so they didn't have many HPs.

But I ran into one in Estrella's lair that attacked my while standing and cast a whole bunch. Nothing that did any noticable dmg, but it took about 400dmg to kill it, so I think he was a bit higher then level 5, not that they are anything to worry about if you are hunting there unless they explode.

Shimmering sailfins can SEE INVISIBLE, so these little guys can really ruin your day. Kill them, but not the other weak fishies.
