Hey guys, it's been a while since anyone's used the HNM term anymore and although I know many regard its meaning to be 'Honorary/Honorific Notorious Monster' and so it should be awarded to any monster that awards a title, but I feel this isn't the best way to use the label anymore.

So I was thinking of criteria that could be used for these monsters and, as there are no 18-man-required bosses anymore (or even 6-man-required bosses), the only criteria I could think of is that the monster can't be soloable. So here's my question to you all:

What monsters today are still, under any conditions, completely unsoloable?

Here are the rules:

1. No help from ANY other player of ANY kind, this includes not just supplementing damage and buffs/debuffs, but also includes players who take damage as a tank or to help mitigate AoE split-damage attacks, or who utilize game mechanics to assist the player attempting a solo in any way.
2. No Trust or Adventuring Fellows, this DOES includes Unity Concord NPCs but DOES NOT include Avatars, Spirits, Wyverns, Puppets, Beasts or Luopans summoned or called by the player.
3. All videos submitted must contain the entire fight, otherwise we cannot be sure that the player has not had assistance beforehand. The clock starts on the first attack (by the player, pets or the enemy) and ends when either the enemy's HP runs out or, in some cases, when the enemy's death animation begins.
4. Videos of fights must be recorded on one of the officially-supported non-testing Square Enix Servers, these include and are limited to Bahamut, Shiva, Phoenix, Carbuncle, Fenrir, Sylph, Valefor, Leviathan, Odin, Quetzalcoatl, Siren, Ragnarok, Cerberus, Bismarck, Lakshmi and Asura.
5. All fights must be relevant to their said areas, this means in cases where the same NM can be fought in different places at different strength levels (i.e the Ark Angels) then entry into the battlefield and the loot dropped as the mob is defeated must be shown in the video to verify that the correct fight is indeed taking place in the right place.

Undefeated: 0

This is a list of all mobs in the game that currently are thought to have never been downed. With any tactics, by any number of people.

There are currently no undefeated monsters in FFXI.

Unsoloed: 27

This is the definitive list of all mobs that have not been soloed even once. As soon as video evidence of a successful solo is published and the evidence has been deemed viable, the mob will be moved down to the Honourable Mentions section of the post.

Honourable Mentions

This is the list of all mobs once thought completely unsoloable. The easier solos are typically at the top of the list and the harder ones are typically at the bottom. Please note that although it has been proven that the mobs below can be soloed, in most cases a very specific job/equipment setup has been used and the players able to solo the mobs have demonstrated a high degree of skill and knowledge in the job.

Isn't "HNM" defined as High Notorious Monster by SE.

And Absolute Virtue/Pandemonium Warden are impossible to solo.

AV? Idk, but PW is certainly soloable and really isn't that difficult with ilvl gear now.

If SE defined it then I guess that makes sense, did they say what they class as a HNM by any chance?

Monster Ranks
You begin your rampage as a monster (Mon), become a notorious monster (NM) after wreaking sufficient havoc, and finally ascend to the heights of a high notorious monster (HNM) once you've slain a mountain of foes.

Edit: Add
Kirin is a joke and I've soloed Vytra on BST (Does that still count).

Ah I see, so they don't give a solid definition, I guess it's open to player interpretation then? :)

In any case, I still feel that the best way to define a HNM is anything that is unsoloable under any conditions.

The only other way you could define it is any mob that requires an alliance to defeat it, but that's pretty much Delve Naakuals only at this point right?

"Naakuals" is a pretty loose term, could refer to both in and out.

There have been a few people that have killed outside naakuals alone or have gotten them to near dead before someone discovered it was being fought.

So perhaps just Delve Naakuals then? Specifically Tojil, Dakuwaqa, Muyingwa, Wopket, Cailimh and Utkux?

Naakuals are done with 6 on a regular basis. So if you are going with alli as a condition they are out too, and some would be done with less if you could enter the zone with less than 6.

Edit; I personally have solod 70% of Achuka as rdm/war (is it still solo with trusts? they aren't any real help....) took about 2 hours, and a friend came and nuked on blm for the last 30% mostly just to not take another hour and a half than anything else. I was never in any danger of death.

Think they meant delve bosses, which I can't see ever being soloed.

As far as WKR Naakuals. I know Psylo on Asura has soloed a few as RDM. (might have soloed all?)

I would add Odin to the list of un-soloable monsters. Not just because of the 6 man zone requirements either, he is impossible to solo because of his special abilities.

Delve shark was mostly soloed by a SCH but a rng had to help out during magic resistance phase due to time concern. Had he more time, I am guessing he would have soloed 100%

What monsters today are still, under any conditions, completely unsoloable?

Vrtra? Kirin? Pandemonium Warden? Naakuals? Absolute Virtue? Odin? Delve Bosses? Legion Bosses?
Arch Diabolos in tav?
Arch Christelle in dunes?

Added to the list :)

EDIT: I've also added all Very Difficult High-Tier Battlefield Mobs to the list.

I know, back in 2007 I think if you told anyone it was possible to solo Absolute Virtue you'd just be laughed at. Hell, for a long time many players believed AV was unbeatable, period.

But people also said the same thing about Vrtra, Kirin and Pandemonium Warden as well. Today people still say it about the Dark Rider too, although because he's never been beat I've not bothered adding him to the list, most people by now believe he's unkillable due to being story-related anyways.

In any case, since Dakuwaqa's been confirmed Soloed, is it possible to solo any of the other Delve bosses? Videos/Testimonials anyone?

I'll ask my LS leader, but I think he said he solo'd one of the legion chamber bosses with his Nirvana.

Also for Legion. Add Botulus Rex and the other Mul boss to the list.
