General Notes
  • Spawns with four adds.
    • Albumen Korrigan: RDM
      • Posses: enparalysis, Aero V, silencega, graviga
    • Albumen Lycopodium: WHM - Benediction
      • Posses: enslow
    • Albumen Mandragora: NIN - Mijin Gakure
    • Albumen Pachypodium: DNC
  • Albumen spawns an additional set of four adds at specific time intervals of ~2 minutes apart.
    • A max of 12 adds will be active after a total of three waves, including the initial upon spawning.
    • Albumen and adds will all use their corresponding Two-Hour ability Special Abilities almost immediately as they initially spawn.
      • Subsequent adds called will only have a very short delay before using their SP Abilities.
      • SP Abilities may be reused relatively soon after an unknown delay. Information Needed
    • Adds are susceptible to Petrify and Sleep, but due to their high resistances abilities such as Elemental Seal are highly recommended.
  • Main and adds have regain as well as access to:
    • Scream: AoE Terror.
    • Petal Pirouette: TP reset.
    • Fatal Scream: AoE 10-count Doom. Used ~ <50%
    • Tepal Twist: -50% Max HP Down
      • Take care as Albumen may be actively Hundred Fistsing while this is takes effect.
        • When Albumen is under 25% the potency of this increases to -75%.
    • Bloom Fouette: -50% Max MP Down
      • When Albumen is under 25% the potency of this increases to -75%.
    • Petalback Spin: Inflicts Poison, Paralyze, Blind, Silence, Plague and Amnesia and resets hate on only the primary target of the move.
      • Tanks should wait a slight moment afterwards before reclaiming hate otherwise the hate reset has not fully completed if attempting to immediately rebuild enmity.
      • Players may resist these ailments. Geo-Vex, Geo-Attunement, the proper selection of barspells, carols, Divine Caress, and Fealty are very helpful.
        • If all of the ailments are resisted then the hate reset will not take effect.
    • Phaeosynthesis: Only used during night hours. Provides status enhancements to Albumen.
      • If not dispelled from Albumen after about a minute (Verification Needed on time) then it will level up.
        • There seems to be a wide variance in the level up times. Sometimes it is rapid and sometimes it takes much longer. Information Needed
    • Adds will also use Leaf Dagger and Wild Oats.
  • Albumen possesses a high Counter trait which can inflict heavy damage to melee characters.
  • A high Regain trait is also possessed.
  • Albumen yields to Stun and does not build resistance to it, though like the other Reisenjima enemies of this content level, its magic evasion is formidable. Haphazardly stunning can be of great benefit if permissible in your setup.
    • Albumen's special moves ready fairly quickly, making stunning him by animation the only reliable method.
  • Melee accuracy caps at ~1821

Albumen is the name of the clear liquid contained within eggs. It is composed of 90% water and 10% proteins including albumins, mucoproteins, and globulins.

In contrast, Albumen in FFXI is composed of 90% psychopathic tendencies and 10% sadistic pleasure seeking. You could call him a "bad egg".
