They also appear in Timed Quests alongside saphyrtails on the following days of the month: 2, 9, 19 and 23, where the hunt yields 50 QP. They can be good for grinding AP in these Timed Quests as so many spawn and the player can kill them with warp-strikes.
A Lv.23 reaperking also appears in the Leide League and All-Star Monster Mayhem of the Totomostro. Its team name is Obelisks.
Bestiary[edit | edit source]
- A reapertail variant with a preference for the arid climes of Leide. This longevous arachnid matures to heights greater than a grown man. The species lacks the poison of its brethren, but the brute force of its claws and tail will neutralize most any foe.
- Size: 16.10 ft. Weight: 553.5 lb.
- A reaperking whose domain centers around the foot of the Rock of Ravatogh. To one who finds the common reapertail sufficiently intimidating, this magnified monarch will appear as something out of a nightmare. Its mere presence in the vicinity of Faeryss Gush was enough to keep most tourists at bay until the Hunters stepped in.
- Size: 15.91 ft. Weight: 525.3 lb.

Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Reaperkings use piercing attacks that ignore the player's Vitality. They are weak to swords, greatswords, and lightning. They cleave and crush with their claws, impale with their stingers, and a headbutt to knock back incoming opponents. The player can initiate cross chain against them.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Throwing lightning-elemental elemancy at them works well, as do Gladiolus's area of effect Techniques when they are in groups. Getting behind it to trigger blindside links with party members is powerful, as it is weak to the weapons that commonly trigger them.
