Soloed this today as SAM75/NIN30 (yeah yeah working on it). With Utsu:Ichi and Seigan+Third Eye i dodged alot of damage. Also my level 35 NPC(Healer Mode)helped with cures. Started off with 300%TP Sekkanoki, Gravitation SC, my average hits were doing 85-90 with meat. I recommend waiting for him to use Invincible before you use any melee 2HR, i used Meikyo Shisui too quickly and he used Invincible shortly after -_-. He spammed Cure 3 on himself the whole fight, but it hardly made a difference this guy has a lot of HP. After a few more WSs and wacking away i walked away with the egg and about 300 HP (out of about 1400). NPC was out of magic and it was pretty close. /37NIN and it would have been cake. go SAMs go

anyone think a 59war/nin, 50rng/nin, and 63whm/blm could beat this guy? i usually dont get a couple hours to play so ive waited a long time for my boots and now i just wanna get all my af. cuz all ive seen on this is the usual "solo'd this guy as lvl 75??? soo easy!" and that doesnt help me that much cuz war is my highest lvl at 59 lol
Fun times!

Solo'd as 74 pld/rdm, thank you stoneskin & phalanx. Best method to doing that is to use a staff for as long as you can(which for me was 85% of his hp), just keep using spirit taker as much as possible. As has been said before about this NM he really is no joke... He has good acc & really high defenses and hits nice & hard. During the time I was using my staff he hit anywhere from 33 ~ 100 w/ phalanx up and did crits of about 75 ~ 175 (at most). Best art about him is that he doesn't interrupt spellcasting too much (interruped less than 40%of the time with no Interrupt- gear on), so I was able to recast SS most of the time while he got a couple swings on me. Kept Dia II up at all times, used Sentinel in between SS when available, and was glad I 2hr'd when he did.

Towards the end he started spamming Cure III alot which did nothing but kinda make me /sigh. At about 15% hp I whipped out sword & shield to get this over with as I was also low on HP & MP. He hit for about 15-33 on blocked attacks and did about 50 (57 was his max crit) on regular hits.

All in all abit of fun, was nice to start my day with ;P
Felt kinda like a maat fight all over again, tok me like... 40 mins to kill this >.>

Hes actually hard if your a rng using a gun, because of lack of defense, long delay on gun, and shadows go out fast because of the mobs great acc. Rngs att is fine, just it has a lot of HP, got it down to half hp in like 1 1/2 minutes


CHEA CHEA iight u rngs/warriors go gettem

Me (Sycorax) PLD60/WAR30
Faerie RDM62/BLM31

the ****** hits hard. regular ~85, blocked ~30. crits ~175, blocked crits ~70
all with Defender and Protect III on.

Ore Toss is what really gets you

Vorpal Blade hit between 100 (With Protect III up on him) and 250 (Berserk up on me, Hauby on)

Flash is your Friend, as is Dispel.

anyway, Shiny new Fighter's Calligae for me ^^

Took him as 75pld/nin. He is no joke, truely. Has somewhere around 6,300 hp, uses invincible, spams cure III, has insane defense, and he hits very hard. Not to mention he has very solid acc, making it hard for me to get ichi up, even when pairing with flash. Nearly hit 2hr, but got him down. If you arent comfortable at soloing rough mobs, bring along help.

kid in Ls asked for help with this turtle so i agreed to chance it. he's like a 53war and i a 69bst. we go in, use reraise earrings (just in case), i 2hr my funguarfamiliar ( yes, it's under capped :P ), and we go at him. fight lasted about 3-4min and he only hit me once. which was right after my first juggy died and i was pulling another ( shadows were down /nin ). but ****, i felt it. he popped me a good one of 290! still, after 3x rampages and a couple of numbshrooms he went down pretty as you please.

Bst FTW!

Solo'd as a 75 PLD/WAR! I could've went PLD/NIN but I wanted a little bit of a challenge and I got one! I used Chivalry once to get full mp back but I was never really in danger of losing. I just kept my HP up over 85% to keep my Parade Gorget latent in effect as long as possible. Towards the end I ran out of MP but the victory was no longer in doubt at that point.

I read all these posts and i went there to fight him really worried. Well I killed it in about 3 minutes. started with 1397 hp and finished with 1109...
Was ridiculously easy, I went 75PLD/37NIN. It hit me 5 times for 103,34,53,47,51. If you have a hard time soloing this at 75 with nin sub then you need practice.

I just fought this fool with my drk/nin 74. I used my nin as sub cause i thought i may need it and with utsu ni i thought i would totally whoop its azz. man, was i wrong. I even had my npc with me to heal. This fool did protect 3--it was the only buff he used. It was hitting me for 100+ dmg every time. To my surprise I was only hitting him for about 50 dmg each hit. I got kick azz melee gear. I drained him every time drain was up; even used my 2hr. My npc seemed like an idiot and wasn't curing me when I was in the red. My npc cure 3'd me twice before I got my azz handed to me. My weapon skills only did 200-300 dmg.

I got it to about half hp before i freakin died. I am so ******* Idk about other melee jobs, but this thing totally owned my azz even at lvl 74 and casting utsu ni and ichi. Looks like I'm gonna need some help or at least a 70+ pld. I thought the 2 war af1 nms would be harder than this guy and I stomped the 2 nms. F**k this Nestfender ****. I'm gonna try and again tonight.

Just killed him as 75pld/37War. Was tougher than i thought, but a comfortable fight with my 53 NPC Gunnar helping me out. His defence is incredible high and the key for me was 3 lots of 300tp Spirits Within. He does Protect3 on himself aswell, meaning my regular attacks took about 30dmg. Without my NPC this might have been to hard, as Gunnar used cure4 on me 3 times, and kept dia2 up on the NM. So even if you are a 75 melee job with high Str and Attack, be warned, if you go in unprepared you will die.
Harder than he looks

I ran head-first into this with my 75MNK/WAR.. Despite having healthy merits and decent gear this was still very close. He has very high accuracy and Invincible negated 1/2 of my Hundred Fists. His DEF isn't too bad but he has a ton of HP. He got me from 1906 to 150 by the end, including a 280 chakra.

If you have a high-level NPC or friend, bring 'em along. I was tempted to pop Radille out but I wanted to save her for the leeches.

i just soloed this thing as 74 pld/nin with a lil bit of def gear and a lil bit of attk,wasnt so bad,but it would have been easier if i had come better prepared. First off,i didnt have any Jubaku or Kurayami(para and blind), i only had slow tools. 2nd i started out with a 300% Spirits Within for about 690dmg...only took about this much off him [--------]]. so i was like this might be a tad harder than i thought. basically my strat was to keep shadows up(He hit me for about 90-95 regular hits and critted over 240 >.<) and use Swift Blade whenever i got 100%. I straight tanked his Invincible which he used at like 70% life,and was forced to use mine around his 40% mark. The fight got hairy close to the end when he dropped me to 191/1518 HP,but i managed to get shadows back up,pop my herc ring on,refresh to cure3 and made it until i could finish it off with a WS...all in all id say to make it easy is to be better prepped than me if your gonna solo it, or 2 bring a whm or rdm or DD friend along to make it die fast. Otherwise it was a **** exciting battle.

this thing is so not lvl 53 he may give the exp of a lvl 53 but this thing is a beast. 65mnk/war32 he was hitting me for a good 100 which i didnt think to much about then he started doing nothing but criticals of 250 i zone to shrine and call in the calvary. its sad to say i was out damage by courier carrie my good ole friend Sickofwork a 75 beast master helped me kill it. His courrier carrie did about 150 each hit. i was doing a good 75. so dont try this guy without the proper help.

My Main Job was RDM70 and I took up warrior until I could bring myself to fight Maat again.
I hit 50 and after soloing my AF1 I was ready for AF2. I shouted for help in Jeuno with no luck. All I got was ppl asking for money. I never charged or even took money offered for help therefore I refused to pay. I got ****** and dusted off my RDM gear and made my way to the mines. Killed everything in my way until I had 300 tp then buffed. I cast sneak on myself right before popping the quadav and crossed my fingers.

This was bar far not as hard as I thought it would be. Fight was simple.I debuffed the crap out of him and made sure to keep him paralyzed. Hit em with Spirits within @300tp and full HP for max Damage.Used rememdies whenever he got a flash off and kept dispeling his buffs as soon as he put them up. Made sure stoneskin and phalanx were always up. Didnt bother with Blink to much and just kept myself refresh. I drained him for hp and mp when I needed it. Found he was rather weak to dark magic and drain was taking about 140 to 170 hp from him. He hit me the hardest (critical hit) for a measely 109 damage. his regular hits were between 50 and 17!!!! (Gotta love Phalanx :p)
when He used invincible I made sure he was paralyzed and converted and healed with a cure IV. Then proceeded to nuke his @@$ like mad til it wore off. One last Aero III and he was done for and I got my egg. Ended the fight with 533/1033HP and 311/702MP (I didnt bother healing myself after convert as I knew he was done for) This is pretty much the same Difficulty as soloing the 2 NM's for the AF1 axe was but just one mob. For those about to do this make sure your tank has a **** of a lot of DEF or EVA. He hit me for a few hard shots, mostly critical hits, but he also missed a lot. Key to fight was keep him enfeebled and keeping myself buffed. Good Luck to anyone about to do this and as far as the lousy ppl who only want to help for money on Hades server I DONT NEED YOU! Now to Kill some leeches :D
I hate this guy.

Everyone says that they did this quest with ease, bull crap lol the first time i tried this we had
52WAR/26NIN(me)
58PLD/29WAR
75BLM/37WHM
47SAM/23WAR
and we were KILLED. first the pld got 3 or 4 vokes in then the blm did thundaga II, the blm had too much hate and eventually died. by then he was half way dead so we thought taht it was all fine... the pld ran out of MP and died, me (WAR) and the sam 2hrd and got it to 1/4 HP.. then the stupid thing did his 2HR and we zoned to Waughroon Shrine. the second time i tried this we were at
52WAR/26NIN
58PLD/29WAR
75BLM/37WHM
61RNG/30NIN
54PLD/27WAR
even with this many people he was tough, word of advise to all of you people thinking about trying this... go prepared >.<

Tried it once with this setup:
71rng/nin (prodigy rng, beat maat record at 66)
50war/nin (me, just kinda sitting there)

Don't think that you and a high lvl melee can take this thing, definetly need a mage of some sort, preferably rdm for dispel. Getting raises right now and then trying again with a 58blm/whm and a 60whm/blm. Probably will win with ease this time. Warning once again, bring more than you think youll need, cuz youll need it.

for all the melee's trying to take him down solo, his defense is immense. When I did it:

75 whm/nin
60 blm/whm
51 rdm/whm
51 war/nin <-- me

I spawn it and we start fighting. the whm is trying to hold hate with flash and cures, but i keep grabbing hate. He said "dont voke!". I go "i havent". anyway, we're hitting for like 20-30 a hit. then the rdm has a great idea and casts dispel. he hadnt cast anything, but it said "Protect affect wears off" we started hitting for 50-60. of course this was at his 25% hp, so it went fast after that.

Took my buddy to get all his WAR af. I'm a cocky ****** so i said we didnt need any help. (65rdm and he's a 52war) I was wrong. He hits very hard.Killed me after about a 10 min fight, and the war died right after. He asked if we should find help and i said no.... (remember im cocky) Changed sub to NIN and went back. Told the war to stay away cuz i didnt wanna lose hate to him and have him die. Soloed him with ease. He may be 53 in lvl but he hits like a truck. Also woulda been nice to have a BLM when he used his 2hr.

Wrong. I killed him at L63 BST with a L60 RDM and got 9 xp (with 30% xp penalty because of pet). That makes him 10 levels lower than me - 53.

Most NMs are far tougher than a normal mob at the same level.

I was helping my lsmate get her kazham keys when we wandered into the nest. Found the lesser NM and I killed it with ease, being a WAR32. I came back maybe 20 minutes later to ANOTHER NM, Ni'Ghu.
I'll let you draw your own conclusions:
WAR32/MNK7 (gimp) vs. Lv.53 PLD NM

I can kinda verify this, I solo'd this NM being BST71/WHM35 on my second try:

On my first I used RR2 neck, Tav Taco (i knew I'd get hit), Fungus, blink, stoneskin, and gathered 300 tp... stupid WS from fungus missed, I had to use 2 fungus and still died when NM was @ 4%... was pretty *******

Second try, no RR neck, meat mithkabob (cuz im cheap), Fungus, and all the same as above, Fungus managed to land Spore, which owned, got the NM to 10% then fungus died, poped a second one and owned the **** thing, just remember to have full mp, i did used it.

We did this last night for a LS memember.
56 Pld me
60 whm
62 Drk
52 War
50+ Sam
50+ Drk

it was ALOT harder then we though it was going to be. It was hitting me from 60 to 90 and its TP moves for around 200+ I would take a 60+ Pld for sure or have a rdm or brd for refresh I ran out of MP and so did the whm. It had alot of HP and we didnt hit it very hard so I would have a blm as well. And get everyones TP to 300 before you fight I'm sure that would have helped alot hehe

Hurray for my pic with corrected name.

But it still says not aggro, which is BS. He took me out when I was dumb enough to stick around after he killed that party. I wouldn't be surprised if he links either.

did this with the following pt:
75pld 75blm 75nin and 3 51 wars
as expected with this pt, Ni'Ghu was no match
also, there is a short time for it to be able to spawn again, around 3 minutes or so
2nd Time is a charm

We fought this guy yestersday the first time and it wasnt pretty. My party consisted of:

53WHM/26BLM <----me
51PAL/25War
50MNK/25SAM
51War/25MNK

We were a little cocky going into this thinking he was a 52 no problem. Big mistake. He was hitting our pally for 125 almost everytime and he had used defender and a fish kabob his defense was well over 400. Anyway it got to the point where i had to dem us in the middle of the battle(ghetto escape) to save everyone from dieing. When we got to DEM our pally had 5P. Whew!!! We decided we needed some more fire power and came back the second time with this party:

53whm/26BLM <<---me
51PAL/25War
50MNK/25SAM
51War/25mnk
53BLM/26WHM
60PAL/30WAR

This battle was alot easier. The 60 pally tanked and even with the MOB using invincible there wasnt any problems. We had to fight him twice(for the 60 pally friend who wanted the egg also. We didnt do anything special just hit hard and fast. I can confirm that I also tried to silence him with elemental seal twice with no luck. He might have a resistance to silence. I had enough time to take to take some screen shots. I sent them in I hope it gets posted.

If anyone ever needs any help in Gilamesh send me a tell.

Just fought this sucker, was alot harder than we were expecting. He's immune to Silence by the way, or at least, he resisted two Elemental Seal+Silences, so...

We had all lv 52:

WAR/THF
THF/NIN
RDM/BLM
WHM/SMN
BLM/RDM

And it was a very challenging fun fight. Didn't have any deaths, but very close.

I killed him last night with my LS. He was pretty easy.

Took us about 2 min and he didnt even get his 2 hour off. Because of our blm. (Gotta love that ancient magic)

Party setup was 50war/mnk <me> ; 63 blm/whm ; 62 rdm/blm ; 53 sam/mnk ; 63 thf/??? ; and 50 whm/blm.

The mob's name is Ni'Ghu Nestfender. Not Nickel'Ghu.

Also, at level 63 he gave me 8 experience in a party of 5. I was surprised at how hard he was able to hit me. A few regular shots landed for 90 damage, that after I had eaten a fish mithkabob.

I can confirm this. I was wondering why several websites list it as Nickel'Ghu. It is indeed Ni'Ghu Nestfender.

Nickel'Ghu Nestfender has a paladin job (mages keep it silenced)

Requires a full level 50-53 party to defeat it

Nickel'Ghu Nestfender will use Invincible halfway through the fight, so you will need a blm in the party. While Invincible is active, the blm needs to bombard it with its best Thunder spell (Invincible does not protect against magic).

My party (53 war, 51 war, 52 blm, 52 whm, 53 pld, 52 thf) defeated it handily. we had to defeat it twice because it only drops 1 quadlav egg and both warriors needed it.
