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

Faerie RDM62/BLM31

the ****** hits hard. regular ~85, blocked ~30. crits ~175, blocked crits ~70

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 damn, 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 pissed. 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 damn 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 pissed 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 hell 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
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
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.

Rng is the 2nd easiest for maat, nothing is a prodigy for beating him at 66. I beat maat at 66 on pld... maats easy except for a few jobs like rdm.
