They are slow and not too hard so they shouldn't be any problem for any vocation; you should be more careful of many Toads and Thornback Tortoises that usually accompany them. Use parcels if you are of a low level to avoid multiple attacks. You may come across an unusually slow tortoise who heals itself. It no longer hits as hard as it used to, but some testing suggests that it "trains" like a slime would. They have abnormally high hit points, and heal a lot, very quickly. This monster is designed to make Cheaters "stuck" on this monster, since they cannot kill it.
