    Flail, help me understand

    I've never camped anything like Fafnir, Nihd. or anything else that can "flair". I've seen the term used, and only assumed it meant an AoE move that dragon-type HNMs can do and it sounds nasty (enough to wipe an alliance?).

    What is it? I've read a few times that it seems like other LSs try to force it to happen (if so, mpk'ing in every sense of the word).

    This sorta sounds shady, even reading my own post as I type it. It's weird asking about these taboo subjects, so use your own discretion in how in depth your responses are. I just...want to know what it is.

    Thanks ahead of time, it's frustrating not knowing what it means.

    it has to do with wyrm type nm's. it's an area attack that does a lot of damage but some people usually randomly evade it

    it appears to happen mostly if the NM turns around due to someone getting hate from behind.

    Thank you. So then, I guess my thoughts would be...positioning of melee has to be a different arrangement than a normal HNM for wyrms?

    It sort of makes sense now, remembering your Nidhogg video -- I remember all the fighting to be bunched up to his front.

    if wyrm have tp, and you aggro its ass, it will flail and wtfpwntsendutohellwatchjpclaimnidhoggorfafnir mode...etcetc...so don't aggro the tail O:...usually if its head can't reach u, then and u get aggro, means a flail, means 1100++++++++++++++++++ DMG , or in rarer ocassion u will evade, bu tmost likely its a wipe~

    Or 1 lone BLM evades flail and proceeds to cast Thunder V to kill Fafnir with the entire alliance dead.

    iirc, it may not necessarily have to do with TP. i seem to recall him spike flailing as soon as an LS aggro'd him. but then again it may be TP if he just has perma-meditate because the times I remember him flailing on aggro were times that he had been popped and therefore might have had time to meditate his TP up or whatever
