I went with a gimped sub after what I read on here thinking it would be helpful. Took a scroll of warp and reraise with me and teleported over to vahzl. Got aggroed by a demon or two at the spawn point, but otherwise no trouble.

Will admit I got lucky, a lvl 75 rdm was nearby about to do the same fight and we joined up but it wasn't nearly has hard as I thought.

Hit me for about 50-150 points of damage, depending. I hit it for 80-100 myself and my penta thrusts did 1100+ dmg each time. All in all, with regen, protect, some potions as backup and healing breath, I think I could've soloed it. Not positive, but figured I'd add my experiences for anyone still on the fence here.

Mind you the rdm enfeebed the **** outta that thing. Never got a chance to do more than berserk.

I'm a 50 PLD/WAR looking into getting the AF Armor since I already have the AF Weapon "Honor Sword" do any of you know what level Icould solo this at, or offer any help in doing it? I play on the Fairy Server and my characters name is Haseokun. I am in Sandy atm starting this quest. i have the full l45 Iron Ram set equipped for Tanking as well as thefull RSE2 set for 27-33. I tend to use the Trump Crown alot for its MP and DEF since it has more DEF then the Iron Ram Helmet and gives MP. I wear the IR Helm more often lately though. I have a 39 GS, but now Ican use my 50 GS I just bought off AH a few days ago. Are there any AF quests other then AF1 that I can do on my own? Or must I enlist theh elp of people that I do not know. Most of my friends didn't have the money to pay this month so they won't be on the game. Sad but true, the others...I just havn't seen login all month who knows why. =/ I figured the IR Set will get me to 55 at which I will need to really consider getting AF2 AF3 and AF4 asap. If I cannot find asistance in thsi then I will probably get WHM to 25 for subbing purposes and attempt it with Re-Raise on myself.

Just soloed as 71SMN/35WHM with Ifrit for Beast Gloves. Flaming Crush x3 - 1743, 1634, 2159 with uncapped SMN magic. Had to recast Ifrit at 50% and used 4 ethers and a yag just to be safe.

This guy is reeeaaly easy, I made my first game video on this guy thinking he would be tough.

I went as Drg/whm although I should have just gone /War and Angon, Deep Breathing, Berserk, Warcry, Penta Thrust to pwn

If you do fight this guy watch out for Bio it can kill you after the fight which I have seen happen on a few people.

For brother Dragoons wanting to take this guy Super Jump at 25% and let Wyvern tank the last bit (he tends to Bersek and spam Bio).

If you want to see the Video check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbrokRjVIfQ

If your on Siren and need this guy send Vise (me) a /tell
It's not enough I need more, nothing seems to satisfy. I don't want it, I just need it. To breath, to feel, to know I'm alive.

I was also surprised at how easy he was. I soloed him on my 75 SAM/NIN. I brought a vile elixir just in case, but took him out without using it and still had over 1200hp remaining. Kept 2hr ready to try and sneak in a Tachi: Hobaku if he decided to blow up, but he never did that either, so I just kept using Kasha on him, which worked great. Once he's paralyzed he hardly seems able to do anything at all, so don't forget to use it on him if you have it at your disposal. ^^

I was gonna try and solo him as a pld, but I decided to bring a bst friend along. 75pld/nin (no haste gear), and he managed to hit me twice with shadows down. Started with 300tp spirits within, and Ni, recasted Ni once, and I think ichi once and never got to 2nd ni recast before he was dead. I was kind of disapointed he was that weak. I thought I remembered him being tougher, but I guess I was a low level at that time lol. Should be easily soloable by any 75 job.

This may be a silly question but this is the first character I've gotten to this level. I know that this fight for AF is required for each job. What I'm curious about is that I have SAM and MNK at roughly the same level, could I potentially get the quest with both jobs...then fight the mob, come back and turn it in twice under each job essentially? Or does it consume something upon turn in? If I could knock out this fight for an AF on two jobs at once that would be very nice.

Yeah, solo'd as a Whm/Nin. Like it was said, he's not too hard. Just make sure you keep him silenced and slowed 'cause he attacks pretty fast. He interupted my Stoneskin twice I beleive during the whole battle. He ate my shadows for lunch for the most part. Paralyze stuck on him but he never once was actually paralyzed. Flash immediately wore so was completely pointless. He never exploded on me but Berserked like 3 times. I set a new record for myself with HexaStrike for 1140 dmg. I kept barfira up but it did no good. When he wasn't silenced he immediately casted Drain and Aspir. He started out the battle with Bio III which was weird. He took Stoneskin down as well before the recast was up and I have Haste+28%. I don't have enhancing magic capped

I hope this helps a bit!!!

This guy was a joke, hits for like 120-150max. I pretty much soloed it as Drg a few Cure III's from paladin. Penta Thrusted it for 1182, and then 1058 2nd time. No self-destruct..... Peice of cake.(Even if it did selfdestruct ~Super Jump~ ^^)

was doin this last night as 70 sam/nin

2 houred and got it down to around 50% health and started getting hit, was at about 500 health myself and then some party getting ready to do darkspark after me healed me (I was so happy^^) It self destructed at 10% hp, only did 100 damage.

I would say any 65+ melee can do this as long as they someone who can heal them.

Went 75BLM/rdm with a 74PLD buddy to help a friend out on his AF. We had him pop DS and we went to smacking him around while he sat off to the side, took about 1 min mayb 1.5 mins and he was done, a few nukes, a stun or 2 along with shield bash for self destruct and, he was done for.

Soloed as a 75 War/nin easy fight killed him in 10 minutes. Bio III was the main thing that hurt the most. It hit me for only 90 or 100 hp but missed most the time casted shadows only 4 times during the fight due to the Bio III.

I can duo this guy as my 62RDM/NIN with a lvl 60+ BRD/WHM (for haste songs, slow songs and erase if he's high enough lvl) just keep utsusemi/stoneskin/phalanx/ice spikes up and you'll do fine

And as 63SAM/RNG with a lvl 55+ WHM (for haste/cure/erase) since I can get 4 Sidewinders in without 2hr and another 3 from 2hr plus a barrage. This guy has low evasion (so I rarely miss with 100% tp), Sidewinder hits around 800-900 the first time, then he usually uses Berserk and all the Sidewinders after hit about 1,700 and Barrage hits around 500, so 6x 1,700 = 10,200 + 800 = 11,000 + 500 = 11,500... He goes down pretty quick, just gotta watch out for Self-Destruct.

4th time's the charm...I hope.

75 drk, no ninja sub, trying to solo it. If I had rdm i think I'd be alright with phalanx, but unfortunately I don't. Trying with whm sub.

First try: Wasted my 2hr, didn't expect him to kick my *** so hard. Got him down to about 40%

Second try: More of a plan, even without bloodweapon got him down to about 20%.

Third try: Remembered my NPC, same plan, the little **** went on a RAMPAGE hitting me for a ton every time, double attacking all the time. Went cure happy and kept fighting, managed to get him down to about 10-15%. If I'd had blood weapon for this fight or maybe the second, I'd have been fine.

The problem is the rate at which I take damage. He goes down pretty fast, and even with whm sub and Bio III on me I can do 1000 damage with guillotine. I just get slapped around terribly, so this next time [after I get back from work] with my 2hr up, I'm going to give it a try with a tavnazian taco. If I fail again I'll try one more time with the taco, 2hr, and NPC and after that I'm giving up.

As an aside - I hate the ninja job. It's embarrassing to watch a ninja 5 levels lower than me kill dark spark while barely getting hit at all. inc. DRK defense SE, this whole glass-cannon, die-in-a-strong-breeze thing is getting old.

White Mages must keep their eyes on us Dark Knights - we're the only job that kills OURSELVES!

Who the **** say it didn't use Self-Destruct is a **** noob. I Duo this as rdm 70/nin and my friend rdm 50/blm. My friend pop it then it use self-destruct within 3-5 seconds after it is pop. We all hit the floor. It did around 1,900 damage to me with buff and ****.

When did DS get this smart to use self-destruct at the start? We try it again this time it nuke us with spell and Bio 3 then around 50% it use self-destruct again, dammit we need a stunner. We ended up kissing the floor again. Bio3 is a killer, it wear off my buffs alot.

Just soloed him as SAM75/NIN37. Fight went flawlessly up until the last 15%.

973 Yukikaze.
970 Gekko.
291 Fragmentation.
Meikyo Shisui.
949 Kasha.
1423 Light.
587 Gekko.
810 Gekko.

This was over the course of about 20 seconds, which left him at about 10%, then he started to use Self-Destruct. I Blade Bashed him, but stun didn't proc, so I took 1204 damage. If I had even gotten hit once during the fight, I probably would have died, as I was left with 114 HP.

Only had to cast Ni once with typical /NIN gear. SH, Walahra Turban, etc.

Soloed as 65BST last night. Fight took 2 FunguarFamiliar pets and one Pet Food Zeta. Called pet, took out the demons close to the torches, made sure timer was up, then popped DS and put pet on him, S/I and ran back to the corridor where you enter that area - it's aggro-free. Once DS finished off first pet, he was at ~70%. Put second pet on him and meleed, used Zeta and Sic>Silence gas. Finished the fight with second pet at <5%, I had 100% TP but didn't have to Rampage. S/I again, ran up and touched the torches for Shadow Flames, then warped out.

Probably would have been a bit of an easier fight if I hadn't forgotten food. Also forgot to use Blink/SS, DS only hit me twice during the fight but it was for 180-250 each time (he was Zerked).

F-8, just follow the path from Xarcabard, and at the intersection, go straight. Please stop with the "I soloed this as..." posts. ANY 75 job combination can solo him, as he has the poorest accuracy of nearly any NM. I cast Utsusemi: Ni twice the whole fight, did not take one hit, and NO, I'm not a thf nor did I have any eva gear on. His self-destruct will hit a moderately (no fire+) geared 75 for 600 at most. So maybe you're a hero to the lvl50-60 you helped, or yourself for soloing your 2nd job's AF, but that's the extent of it, get over it.

Are you a player, or a conglomerate of guides?

I finally got my Coffer from The Eldieme Necropolis ad now I'm moving onto Darkspark. Rather than making plaintive requests or writing 'I rock posts...' does anyone actually know the <pos> for this NM at all?

So far from both forums for DS and forums for its map all that's there is: He was hard, he was easy, room linked. So far as far as I can tell he is at the end of the hall way as you walk into the keep. Could someone please post something to confirm this, or the correct pos if they've been there please?

It would help greatly, especially since the Castle is such a pain even with a map ^^ Thank you muchly.

My lvl 66 RDM friend needed this and no other ls members were on to help. He had previously said that I was useless and so I decided to try and prove him wrong. All I can say is that if you are a 61DRG/WHM, don't take it on unless you have someone that is either a equal/better mage than my friend or unless you have a tank that can actually tank.

Just in case you wondered what happened, we did win w/o a death, but DS was hittin me for 80-140 each hit and RDM had to convert when I was at 300HP. Fortunately, I had enough TP to Skewer his @$$ and finish him ^^

Do I need to have opened a coffer in Eldieme Necropolis before I can get the Shadow Flame from Dark Spark?
I'm wondering because I often see shouts in Jeuno to join a party and fight this guy and I haven't gotten a coffer yet for my PLD AF gloves.

NVM I finally found a coffer last night! woot!

64DRK/WAR, 72PLD/WAR, 60PLD/WHM, 70DRG/WHM, and me 60RNG/NIN.

What a joke. Never even had a chance to explode. XD

Had TP built from killing the demons around the torches. DRK used (Guillotine} for 876. For good measure, I used {Sharpshot} + {Barrage} with Heavy Crossbow +1 and Holy Bolts. That did 786 damage alone. Then used {Slug Shot} for 1284 damage. {Good Night!} LOL, the WHM subs weren't even needed. I really think 2 60 DD's with NIN subs could probably duo this guy before ever having to recast Utsusemi.

So for those that need him, just grab a high lvl DD and go get your gloves. :P

I just solo'd this guy 10 minutes ago. I went in as a 63 Nin/31 whm. I beat him in around 6-8 minutes. He gave me 44 xp points. It was a very easy fight and at the end, I had full health because my pamama au lait regened the 50 dmg he did to me the whole fight. I knew he was lower level than me so i just ate meat mithkabobs for attack and not sushi for accuracy. i don't think the /whm sub was really necessary for this particular fight because he didn't explode. if i had gone /war, it probably would have went quicker. just for safety though, maybe go /whm just for teh barfira and get a reraise on you so u can raise when he explodes and still complete the quest. and the demons around the area didn't aggro me, even when i ran straight in front of them no invis or sneak, though they still checked EP...

I ended up soloing this guy very easily as 68 rdm/30 nin,i needed the flames for my 50 war and i was shouting in jeuno for help but no responses..so i packed up and went off to try and solo,thinking i was gonna get owned,fight went like this-

i got 300% tp before battle and ate sole sushi.i pop the dude w/ full buffs up(dont forget barfire) and landed paralyze,slow,and silence.I used spirits within and pretty much just blink tanked him.He likes to use berserk which i just left on for the lowered defense. Well thats pretty much it,GL to any of u guys who need!

Ok. Dark Spark is CAKE.

I hear some 52 RDM shouting for help.

I'm lvl 60 DRK, Full AF, so I've already encountered this guy. But I didn't remember him being hard at all. So I told him I'd help (He was offering 50k) so I located a 75 WHM to help and I tanked it as a DRK and unleashed a few Guillotines for 1000+ Damage. What a piece of cake. :P Don't forget your arcane circles kiddies. it helps when mages get hate, so he doesn't hit them. :)

...Well this NM was Raped today in Fairy. The PT set up was 61THF/NIN 61DRK/THF 58SAM/WAR 75SMN/WHM 70RNG/???<-(didn't check well, I think it was NIN since the update and all.)and Me 53RDM/BLM. At first I didn't know what to expected....but we killed thi ******* in less than 2 minutes.. Caburnacle was doing 100+DMG each hit, and Gulliotine(Don't know if I wrote it right...) and Dancing Edge just raped this NM really bad.The THF was actually tanking if you can belive that ^_^ lol. With me have him Silence and Paralyze there was nothing he could really do but to die.

Killed Dark Spark with a fairly unorthodox strat.

Just killed Dark Spark tonight on Sylph. Party was me, 54RDM/27WHM, a 54PLD (thanks for inviting me Faith!) and a 72BLM (thanks Drazen!) The first time we tried to fight it we tried to just use a standard strategy of the PLD 'voking, BLM nuking, me healing. This.... didn't go so well. After our party wiped, luckily both the BLM and the PLD had reraise items up, so we got all raised and rested, killed the demons in the area and tried again. This is where it got interesting.

Our new strategy was for the BLM to cast a strong nuke, then he and I would both cast SleepII on Dark Spark. As we started out, this was working well. Sleeps were sticking just fine, I was keeping myself and the BLM refreshed, the BLM was Aspiring whenver he could and both of us keeping Stoneskin up. Things got a little bit hairy when one, then both of the demons respawned, now we had 3 mobs to keep asleep! Between SleepI, SleepII and the BLMs occasional Sleepga, we were able to stay relatively safe. I had to Convert midway through the battle, and both of us had to rest here and there. After a good 15 minutes or so of this, we got Dark Spark with barely any life left. The BLM rested up a bit, cast FireIII and waved goodbye to Dark Spark, the PLD and I got our key item, and the BLM Escaped us out of there just as the demons were waking up and cranky.

I solo this for people on Fairy as RDM/NIN all the time. I did it my first time when I was 65, didn't have too much trouble. Only need to sleep it once to turn around and convert, because your MP will get low. If he has slow on you can recast utsu in between his hits with fast cast IV, and if you have capped enhancing you can recast stoneskin while he beats you up and you wont get inturupted. Takes about 10 minutes :D Very fun over all though. First time I helped someone with this I died, because I didn't know about recasting stoneskin in between his hits thing..But yeah, capped enhancing magic is the way to go =p

I soloed this guy as a 66-67 blm i don't remember it was very easy. When it pops cast gravity on it or bind to get a head start and pull it to the zone. Then cast Bind on it nuke a little then sleep it and rest. Continue to do that until its down to one more nuke. Then pull it back to the spawning point then nuke BAM its dead get the key item. {/joy}

Thats my very own strategy... **** i'm good
