Let me just get to the point here. Scylla is WAY TO HARD its like battling four ships at once with no help and the ships have low cooldowns on their attacks. I mean seriously AT LEAST make it so that you dont have to do it alone.

I beat the Scylla with EASE just the other week on my own. I also beat him when I just started Aquila and was under leveled. I wandered into the passage and ran into the naval boss. Having no knowledge about him I still won easily. If anything the Scylla is way too easy and his difficulty should be raised. If you just bought the proper naval equipment and got up your nautical level you would be fine. You're overreacting.

Many of us have faced the Scylla - there are very easy strategies to use against her. Even if you don't have a powerful ship, these tips can help you defeat the Scylla.

1. If you can, have a friend & let them clear the decks during battle of all tokens, especially the monster spawn tokens ( the ones with the monster face on them. )
2. Use your mojo only when your ship is close to being defeated. This will heal your ship to full health.
3. Defeat heads one at a time, when one is defeated back off to a safe place. Hit the tab key - you can then clear the decks of tokens, ( if you're alone ) this will also allow your ship to heal a bit.
4. DO NOT enter or go near the green cloud as this will activate any monster tokens on deck! ( Unless you have removed all, then you can enter and fight the spawn. )

Just make sure your mojo potions are full and good luck, I know you can do this ( we all have done this, using this strategy, believe me this makes it a lot easier to do! )

Ok so I have tips for you, first off inch in from the right or left side until you are just on range from two heads on the right or left side, this way only 2 can attack you.
Every once in a while remove the tokens on your ship so you don't have so many Scylla spawns on your ship
Lastly if you require assistance I can help you if you want

It's actually fairly easy if you're at Nautical Level 65.

Personally, I don't think Scylla is all that difficult if you've honed your ship-to-ship battle skills.

If you sail your ship tight along the rocks to the right, and only approach close enough to target the first head (keep hitting the bracket key either one ] or [ until you get the orange targeting icon) you can sink each head in succession, and handle the Scylla Spawn as the last thing.

To all those who are saying "It's easy" please remember that not everyone is at the same level ( pirate or nautical ) as you or has a ship equipped the same way.
I remember the first time I fought the Scylla - I was defeated 4 times! ( It was the Scylla spawn that did this. )
I had to seriously rethink my strategy, and I had no idea that the message boards could help me.
At that time I wasn't even nautical level 60 ( as I recall I was maybe level 57 ). I was using a Marleybone Galleon with bazaar issue equipment ( the drop goddess is not my friend. ) I didn't know about backing away, clicking tab and removing the tokens, so I had over a dozen spawn on my deck when I entered the cloud.
I only got through by mojo potions and buying a henchman.

I forgot to mention, once you have defeated Scylla & entered Ithaca - you won't have to fight Scylla again; a passage opens up at the right when you re-enter the instance.
So you can avoid Scylla if you just want to go to Ithaca. Of course, once you've seen how to defeat Scylla, you may want to farm her ( she drops the Scylla spawn pet. )

Didn't have too much trouble with the heads, but those little spawnie fellers munched through a few crewmen before we finished the little rotters off, that I remember well.
