easy fight
# Sep 24 2009 at 5:57 AM Rating: Decent
soloed him with rdm/nin lvl 63 no prob at all.... had two crimson swords just for damage(magic)...

w/thisfight
composure+refresh+haste+enstoneII+stonskin+phalanx+shadows+aeroII= too easy of a fight....

>spaming aero2 after it like 3/4 hp made it quicker but u could just sit there and hack away if you have time, and not worry he wont be able to touch your hp if you keep stoneskin and shadows up correctly ....

i think it's lvl 55 but it seem alot weaker then that. Well happy hunting
That sucker has some defense!

Soloed as a 65mnk/dnc. Took about 2 or 3 minutes cause of his healing and defense. ; ;

I'd say you could solo it pretty easily at about 55 or 60 with dnc sub. He didn't hit too hard.

I put off going after this guy for a while because I have very little time to play, which often means I go solo. Consequently, my interaction with my LS is minimal at best, and I'd feel like quite a leech for trying to drag someone away from whatever it is they're doing to help the guy who doesn't really contribute a whole lot to the day-to-days of his LS.

Anyway, I hit 55 DRG/BLU tonight, and decided I wanted to give him a go. I picked up two echo drops before hand, expecting him to try and rob me of HB triggers. I also made it a point to grab a Refresh at the East Altepa Field Manual.

The fight was easy enough. I didn't really land any spectacular hits, but it didn't either. He jammed me up once, but the flask of echo drops sorted that out. His Cure IIIs were obnoxious, but as I wore him down, I could tell that outlasting him wouldn't be a problem so long as I could keep my HB triggers going.

All in all, the fight maybe lasted 4 or 5 minutes.

Easy enough, and I finally have my first piece of Artifact equipment... 13 levels too late. Heh.

I just did this out of boredom... But anyway.

Someone asked what level he is? He's level 55.

So for a party of 40s he would be rough, but being an NM and level 55, you can pretty much assume he fights like a level 60 mobs.

I fought him as NIN75/WHM37 on a suggestion I sub WHM for some reason, but I didn't need to. Could've went NIN/Anything and it would've been the same.

He got through shadows once since I stopped paying attention, but he didn't get through Stoneskin. No big deal.

Good luck whoever needs this fight, if you're on Kujata send a tell to Vanicant, I can take care of it.

unorthodox method
# Dec 09 2006 at 7:16 AM Rating: Decent
43 posts
I *nearly* soloed this as a 56 pld. here's the method: buff up, spawn him, drag him to away from the others. Fight him as usual, but dont bother enfeebling him, save the MP for cures. When you run out of MP kite him around between the spawn point and the party areas, do figure 8's for more leeway. Heal yourself when you get enough room between you and him. Be sure to voke him at regular intervals or you'll lose him. If he gets too close and hits you a few times then give it a sec, then he'll cast flash or banish II, which'll give you time to outrun it and put some distance between you and him. When you have full MP and health then repeat. This method lasts about 40 mins but works. It took me 35 cause I yelled for any high lvl that had a minute to spare while I was kiting him. After that go back to the spawn point and talk to it, you'll get the polishing stone and your good to go ^^...

very unorthodox but effective... indeed^^

My friend DRG42 went to get this quest so i went to help him as DRK41. we get to Altepa and are waiting for another of my friends to show(DRK65) anyway. we see a PLD and say mabey he can help. we asked and he said ok. so we get there buff up and rest. DRG pops it and PLD automaticaly takes hate.. me and the DRG where hitting for about 50 and the PLD just kept on vorpal blading whenevr he hit 100%TP. anyway after about 6min hes at 1/4 HP and i said ***** it and souleatered. I hit twice for 100 apiece and brought him done more then PLD hit with vorpal blade and i Finished it off.. what i found out is this thing is vicious with enfeables.. Absorb-Vit didnt stick at all...

EDIT: my other fireind nvr showed.. @$$

Soloed as sam/war75, was a joke. He hit me a total of 2 times. You cannot silence him in any way, the silence effect on Tachi: Gekko did nothing all 4 times I used it. Could have easily killed him without using my 2-hour, but felt like doing a Light SC on him anyhow.

Fought this guy today with my 60 WHM and a friend's 70 RDM We buffed up, rested to full and I popped the NM- We soon found that We couldn't silence the NM, even after using elemental seal, so the RDM just focused on nuking it while I focused on healing, re-applying haste and Regen and curing silence, and threw a few banish/holy spells when it was down to it's last sliver of HP- no aggro or linking while we fought it
help, do you need it?

this guy is kinda easy..
its soloable as a drg51/mage..
I went with 350k+ on DEF and EVA gear, one taco, one pamama au lai, 3 yagudo drinks and some echodrops..
I died when it was 15~20% because it killed my wyvern.. maybe next time i'll go with life belt instead of swordbelt+1

The fight was kinda long(about 8mins) and bored..(yeah.. he's a pld)..

just do it like we do it hehe.. its kinda easy.. just don't use high jump.. and have one call wyvern stacked.. just in case..

(yes, i hadn't :P~~.. i'll fight him again in weekend or so.. i'll tell you how it went..)

Well got drg to 40 and immediately went to take this baby on. Got my party of a 61 rng/nin, 43 rdm/whm, 46pld/war, and me 40 drg/war. We got there, rested up and started to build tp. But as the pld was resting he and the rdm D/Ced.
The rdm came back after a few minutes but not the pld. We decided to take our chances and I triggered the spawn. The rng used shadowbind and I jumped and high jumped for a few damage. After the bind wore off Decurio went after the rng. We did fine until a Sabotender popped right on us and aggroed the rdm. She died right away. Rng used EES but it was clear we were done for. I told him to run and voked Decurio so he didn't lose mega xp. Didn't work. Some more ants linked and rng bit it (delevel). I ran as fast as I could the other way, even made it to zone when sure enough there is Decurio right behind me with a bind. Links took me down (delevel). Rng finally got a raise and what happens? Decurio goes after him again from other side of Altepa. He made it to zone though.

So just a warning. Kill *everything* in the area before fighting this *******.

Did this today. And by did i mean two level 75s did the work. All i did was spawn it and about 400-500 damage all up.

But i posted this so that i always remembered Skyfang[b] and [b]Skidmark.

There isnt much to tell. Skyfang was a Sam/Rng 75 and Skidmark was a Drk/Nin. Im not even sure if Skyfang had Ranger subbed, but if he was anon i would've been mistaken for him being a Ranger main. The damage he was doing with his attacks meant that it was hard to tell.

Either way, this guy would've been dead in under 30 secs with the damage he was recieving. Cept he used Invincible. All it meant was that it could watchon as it was getting owned for another 30secs.

So once again, thanks guys for your help. If you are looking for some capable members for Dynamis or HNMS ls I would definately nominate these two guys. They make my Hall of Fame, for what it is worth. Hall of Fame

Killed him a few hours for an LS mate of mine. PT was 49drg/whm, 43drg/whm and 75bard/ninja (me). Didn't use up any shihei on him, sang dual Marches, I tanked him while our drg's just stabbed away, I landed about 4 eviscerations on him over the course of the battle; mainly for 100-300 damage. Our drg got pretty low once i lost hate due to having to sleep several links from around the area. Used invincible at about 33% health, was a fun fight.

Soloed with 62 NIN/WAR. completely decked out in EVA/AGI gear minus the wind staff cause it's lame XD. He never even hit me once. Hit with katanas then cast elemental ni spell over and over and over again casting utsusemi as needed, let off a Blade: Jin every now and then. he never even stood a chance. Total wuss.

Soloed him as 71SAM/THF for a friend. Not too bad, but he does have pretty high DEF and Magic/Abilities can do some good DMG. I think he left me with about 300HP when the fight was over. Also, he has a decent amount of HP. He has pretty low-end Accuracy and doesn't do too much dmg/hit. Recommend going in with Silence and Blind.

killed it today with my ls, me 60drk/30war, 60sam/30rng, 41drg/20rdm, 40drg/20whm, and 53thf/26nin

i opened the battle witha 300% guillotine for around 850, sam followed witha sidewinder for around 850, the drgs just poked, about 1 min into the fight he invincibled, no big deal. he didnt cast a single spell though cause of my guillotines silence. got a second guillotine
off towards the end for 410 dmg, sam did around 4 or 5 sidewinders.

all in all, not a hard fight with a couple lvl 60's, have fun all you drgs wanting af lance

I just did this, piece of cake. Setup was 58 MNK (me), 50 DRG, and 55 BLM. I was the tank, considering my 8 level advantage over the DRG. It didn't hit very hard at all, being a PLD. I'm not sure of magic DEF, because the BLM would have to be the healer. The battle took 5 minutes or so, considering the natural PLD DEF, and the invincible which we slept. Overall, it's just an easy battle that takes a lil while to do. We even got a link from an anitican (fable?) BLM type, which I find to be very weak. BLM just slept it. Point is, I found this very easy, even for MNK tank. ^^;

I Soloed this NM for a RL friend of mine(I was 60RDM he was 40 DRG) the first time things were going smoothly, just keep stoneskin phalanx prot up and your fine. The only problem we had was Jamming wave(I had no clue the NM was an antica if I had know I would have brought echo drops) so the drg ended up dying and I ran around altepa with a train for a few mins thinking what to do.. so I zoned and asked him to find a WHM for silena, WHM came, saw, and silenad and we won the fight. a 60 RDM can easily solo this if prepared properly. Hope this helps!

Tough fight, I (the RNG) died right at the end of the battle, and the SMN died a little before, DRK managed to kill it with 80 or so HP left. We're gonna try fighting it again cause its the SMN (who is also a DRG) that needed the Key Item.

Well a guy was shouting for help for DRG AF1, so desided to give it a shot, Me or him was not sure if we could do it ..... Owned him as 61WAR/NIN. Didnt get a chance to use Invincible. was able to get off 3 Rampages 650+,480+ and 35 but last one sucked because he died before i got second hit in ; ; he has a whole lot of HP.


But he was hitting me for a good 45-60 in full AF (when i missed a shadow cast).. so he might be a harder hitter for lower lvls.

Ninja af1 nm isn't even an antican. Its two spiders, but you're in the right zone thats a start.

As posted in the DRG AF1 quest thread, I wanted to let everyone know that this battle is totally possible to do just with a group in their low 40s. I've made a post in the Dragoon forum with the details, and a video of our success:

This guy is way too strong to be an AF1 NM. I finally got some help from a level 64 Monk. It was a very hard fight. Chakra is the only reason he beat it.

It used invincible, 2 times.

It got a few hits on me, each was about 150.

No one in their right mind would try to fight this thing without higher leveled help. A full PT of 50s wont cut it....maybe an alliance of 50s, but good luck trying to get 18 people to help you when it took me 3 days to find one person lol.

Heh... I helped take this thing down for a friend. We had a lvl 49 pld... an anon rdm(below 50 I know that much) lvl 33 whm, a lvl 36 mnk, a lvl 40 ninja, a lvl 42 warrior(me), and then the lvl 40 drg we were doing this for... the fight was awesome... it took ten minutes... we had two anticans link with it... only one death... me from tanking a link which was VT ><. but seriously... you don't need to have a party over 50 to do this... just a good tank, a healer, and heavy damage...

this fight is easy as cake w/ one 70+. i fought mine w/ a 70 RDM, and it was a joke, neither of our HP was ever even into the yellow. no 2 hours, no worries, took a couple minutes to kill him, but otherwise it was a joke. i was quite disappointed, to be honest. now... if you want a challenge, the DRG AF2 tiger NM on battalia island. fought it w/ a 68 WHM and the same 70 RDM, and it was a rough fight... rough.

Better yet, if you like a challenge, do it with a group of people that are the same level as you.

You've just hit one of my forum pet peeves.

That's like being in grade five and saying "That grade seven was easy to beat up with my dad's help."

I did this Quest at lvl 40 with the help of a lvl 60+ RDM and a lvl 60+ WAR (Dont know the actual lvl both were anon but had on full AF) it took about 5 minutes to take this bug down and both the RDM and the WAR used thier 2 hours and were at about a constant 300-400 life the whole battle, while I sat there with about 100 life for most of the fight doing only 10 Damage max. I can assure that this is one mob that you should not take lightly and I would not recommend a full PT below lvl 50 even attenpt it.
Also be carefull cause as soon as you touch the ??? point the monster appears and immediately casts a nasty AOE Spell. Be ready to use Silence throughout the battle.

P.S. thats my scrrenshot from the battle by the way!
