Bst is not easiest way there is a much quicker way to handle him all you need is 6 blms a whm a brd 2 nins a 2 dds/thf u let the DDs pick a tank to sata and the blms just bring him down i did 5 O hat runs in about just over 2 hrs with the 15 mins repop so it went very quick bst is a waste of time and effort
Bst fun easy

The easiest way to do this fight is with bst guaranteed. It is duo'able by 2 competent bst 75. And if all goes tits up then 1 bst has more than enough time to take it on alone till the other bst has RR. note i said RR as this will be very important to have if u doing it as a duo. As a duo it takes anywhere from 40mins-90mins. All in all pretty simple fight if you keep your distance and alternate pet swaps. A rdm is always welcome with a bst duo for refresh and the odd cure just ensure you do not cast magic anywhere near and i mean anywhere near hakutaku as you will get hate off of the bsts during pet swaps. GL to all who need and have fun gettin it.

If anyone doing a bst run for O-hat on Ragnarok i would love to join. Ive been thinking on organising a run of my own but dont have the paint brush or the map over Den of rancor, so not being the ideal leader made me hesitant.
Also after reading all the post on people bailing ive gotten sh*t scared of joining a regular alliance. So it would be sweet to go down there with just 6 bst`s if its possible.

so give me a /tell im Dani bst 75 on Ragnarok

Edit: yeay ^^ im done, did it bstx3 smnx3, worked very well. 2 of the smners died 2 time eatch during the five runs. Bst pets where tank while smn avatar was doing the DD work. first fight took about 40 min but we worked our way down to killing it in about 30 min

A warning for anyone on Hades or any other server if he gets a transfer. Never party with Ness. Here is my story:

I shouted and gathered an alliance together. We were to do Optical Hats in the order in which the person was invited. I was to be first and Ness was in dead last. Long story short, we made it to Hakutaku spawn. We fought him for about 30min and I got disconnected. Ness had party leader now. I asked him several times for it back, but he never responded. After about an hour of fighting Hakutaku, we finally killed him. I lotted, but then Ness changed it to Leader Lot, stole my Optical Hat, warped, and logged off.

So if anyone sees Ness on Hades or any other server, if he happens to get a transfer, then don't party with him. Or you can party with him and Mpk him lol.

Just fought Hakutaku on 22/05/07, our party main attack force are smn and bst (no stunners). Overall i considered it easy and smooth as long as hate control is there. Pets and avatars will keep Hakutaku busy.
Things to take note are:
-bst will take care of link if any
-make sure hakutaku is always kept away from caster and bst.
-for bst if in a mixed party; it's better to let at least 2 million eyes died off, if not they respawn quite fast and cause link issues
- one who have hate try not to run into main party, which will caused everyone to eat Firaga III or AOE
- who needs stunner anyway lol
- called npc as smoothing healer may save life lol

Anyway our main party are 3 smn and 2 bst + misc help from rdm and whm. I believe a party of 4 (either bst or smn) can take on hakutaku.
Take around 40 min each for 3 fights. Last but not least, Congrats to kiriswa and krisislance and special thanks to Acc, Warrentang and Heliant for their help.
|(^^)/ Good luck guys

Well I just wiped for my 2nd cluster tonight, no big deal, I just now know I'll never have an Ohat. Not like I really NEED the accuracy, there's plenty of other places I can put accuracy on.

But it's not that what gets me, it's the fact that both times, my alliances went through 10-12 fights perfectly, and then on my clusters it seemed like the **** thing would go balls-to-the-wall out ballistic, and just completely anihilate us.

So if you get wiped for no apparent reason other then the fact that the mob practically jumps up 10 lvls whenever you trade the cluster. Just take the hint and save your money to put accuracy in other places.
I like swords...

We did this 8 times the other night, i was main tank for them all as brd/nin.
the 1st run was my cluster, it was going ok till we got some pop aggro and someone in the main ally cfh >.<
The ls leader tells everyone to log off while i solo it for 2 mins. they get back on and i die, it goes back to non cfh and the nins try to tank while i'm weakend. One or two deaths later i'm back at full and get hate fixed on me again it all goes ok from there.

Died 2 more times in the 8 runs due to nasty deathrays followed by triple attacks while recasting march.

Each fight took about 7 mins apart from the 1st and last, the guy who was last d/c'd half way through so we had to stop fighting while i tanked it.

All in all, not hard to tank if your not facing it and have some one to cure after deathray.
killed with seven

Did two runs last night with seven people, then before we left did a third for a NIN whose pickup had warped and we also invited a DRK who wanted a D2. Zero deaths.
Set up was:


For the first two fights. Took approximately 15 minutes with no deaths. Have the NINs stand on both sides and tank backwards to avoid constant para, with the SAM/THFs SATA onto them and the three stunners (RDM/DRK, BLM/WHM, WHM/DRK) set up with a stun rotation to catch Firaga III, or if a NIN is taking dmg. Having one NIN sub DRK and catch hate by spamming stun is a huge help.

As a BLM, barring MBs, nukes weren't really that impressive. So I spent more time keeping DOTs up, throwing in a few cures, a couple paralyna, and camping the stun button.

To avoid adds, we fought in the tunnel next to the ??? but kept far enough away from the ledge to avoid blood aggro.

After we took the first Hakutaku out, we watched a pick up alliance of 12+ almost wipe to it. PLD tanked it facing the mob, and mages took hate a couple times. I wouldn't advise a set up like ours with a pick up either, but with a group of people you know and can trust, a smaller group can actually be a lot more fun than zerging it with 18 people.

I was main stun for 7 hats. Along the way more showed up had 3 blms but the would cast stun at random and nuk, with me stunning on call. Leg sweep missed once. ZERO wipes . Dragoon yes, please ; )

Fought him tonight.

THF x2, PLD, SAM, MNK x2, WHM x3, BLM x2, RDM

First fight PLD fell twice because stun order got messed up and he got off a flare and a fire IV but we got everyone up and got rolling again.

Second and third fights we had the PLD tank with earth staff which helped considerably and had the stun order set up correctly. Won without a problem and only one death because the SAM TA Gekko'd one THF when he moved to get behind the PLD.

At this point a WHM and BLM both had to leave so we had a DRK and BLU come in to help out. Fight started off horribly when Hakutaku got off a lucky firaga III on the pull (didn't get far enough away in time) and the DRK got hit and went down. Got everyone healed and raised, when someone missed a stun on Fire IV and the PLD went down. We bounced hate between people with Utsusemi as much as possible, but a WHM went down and our DRK DCd. Raised everyone back up, weakness wore on the PLD, but WHMs were OOM so no one could cure him. Tried bouncing hate again, but we fell one after another. At about 30% we wiped.

Another run is planned on next Friday to get hats for the people that didn't get them (had 3 more after the wipe, decided to call it quits due to lack of people). Anyone on Carbuncle that wants to help out, send a /tell. We need all the help we can get.

I've done this fight about 15 times now.
The best setup that worked for us (meaning it was fast, easy, and safe) was:

PLD & NIN - Backwards tanking to avoid Paralyze, each stood on one side
3-4 Stunners - Worked out a Stun order ahead of time and stuck to it
2 Melees /THF - Hate control, SATA onto whichever tank did not have hate
3 WHMs - One per PT, all focus on the tanks and handle Paralyna (very little needed though)
3-4 DDs - Important, have them stand to the side to avoid Paralyze, and WS behind the tanks

Beyond that, just Stun his big spells. BLMs nuke lightly until later in the fight when the tanks have more hate (since there are two, neither can build a huge amount to avoid problems transferring it)

It's nice to have someone to handle links, but if you pull Haku to the right of the Door near his ???, you can fight in that corridor without any problems. (Just make sure you don't stand near the ledge, there are Low HP aggroing mobs below)

It was so funny to see 4 people do it after watching so many alliances wipe. In that time they had it down to 20-25% when a whole alliance came in and finished it off for us so we would be out of there way so I got my Hat Wo0t! Thanks All!

Hi this is thadrizzle! If you are on Fairy Server I know you have seen me runing around. I really want this hat I help this guy all last weekend w/ ZM5-12 and we became what I thought where pretty good buddies so, we both needed hat he had a cluster and said that night he was getting a party together to make a run. So out of neccesity I bought a cluster for my life savings of 2.9 mill (I know I am a fool). Well to make a long one short he didn't form the party that night and /telled me last night that he had joined some high lvl LS that took him to the fight and it took 5 mins but he couldn't invite me....I have not recieved a reply since oh well, they come and go but, I still need this hat if you are on Fairy please please help me out if you can and you are not in some stuck up LS-Remember this game is supposed to be fun not like clicks in High School. Ok I have said my piece TY.

This fight was crazy. The first time our alliance went in, we kicked ****. Second time, toast. Third time, toast. Fourth time...Toast. Everyone disbanded and we went home. I am sorry for the three people who lost their clusters. Congratulations for the person who got the hat!

My question is this: Because this sucker is based on Dark, would it be wise to fight him on lightsday perhaps? I haven't been too concerned with what day to fight what except after seeing this sucker in action.

Best of luck to all who will try and congrats to everyone who has gotten the hat. It's a hard fight. Kudos!

Through some very needed research, I found the following:


For those of you who have been as lazy as I am and not really cared too much about the elements, check it out. Great site.

But back to this guy, YES! Fight him on Lightsday. To find out a schedule of when Lightsday is, check out:

another great reference site. Fighting it on Darksday = suicide!

Also, another bit of information. It's highly recommended to fight this bum in the little path to the north of where you pop him. Just make sure not to fall off the ledge. If you have good stunners and keep Barfira up, you don't have to worry about AoE's for the Mages. Also Mages, face away from him. If you are facing away, Hex Eye doesn't do anything to you.

No need to clear the room totally since it is not linking. Just enough of a path for the person who will spawn it and run in to where everyone is.

I hope this helps others so they don't lose their hard earned clusters!

For all those who commented about NIN's tanking this.

Get off the NIN bandwagon. Pld can tank this just fine with proper supporting staff. 3whm's, at least 3 stunners who have a good rotation, and good DD's 70+. Rdm to refresh also a plus.

Granted, if a stunner misses, chances are pld will die. But, if NIN gets interrupted on shadows, chances are he will be dead before whm cure spell is complete.

There are pro's and con's for each tanking class. PLD can hold hate more effiently and more time for mages to react to physical damage. NIN wont be as strong in the hate, but if he can keep his shadows up almost perfectly, than he is the dominant tank for this fight.

But please don't go saying NIN is god and hyping up that NIN is the only tank. Because the chances of getting a nin that is good enough to tank this is maybe 1 in 10.

This cluster is either very time consuming to collect each item for the synth, or very expensive. In order to synth it, you must have around84 Alchemy skill, the higher the better, or find someone with alchemy that high.
The ingredients are:
Burning Hakutaku Eye x1
Damp Hakutaku Eye x1
Earthen Hakutaku Eye x1
Golden Hakutaku Eye x1
Wooden Hakutaku Eye x1
Vial of Fiend Blood x1
Crystal: Light Crystal

The eyes are all found off of various Hakutaku type monsters. Burning eye drops off of Thousand Eyes in King Rampere's tomb. Damp Eye drops off of the Hakutakus in Ifrit's Cauldron (exact name eludes me), Earthen Eye drops off of Blubber Eyes in Sea Serpent's Grotto, Golden Eyes are from mindgazers in Sea Serpents Grotto, and finally Wooden Eyes, which drop off of Million Eyes in Den of Rancor.
After obtaining your cluster, head to Den of Rancor with your alliance, to the door with Lanterns in front of it (used in ZM4), and there should be a ??? which when examined says there are five eyes stuck to the rock.
Hakutaku, is one bad **** lol.
Good luck everyone, hope this clears up how to get your clusters.

I had some alc friends saying they got a .1 skill at 84 so chances are the cap is 85.... but good luck finding any alc to synth it at that lv. All fails on this synth are crit meaning you lose every ingredent if it breaks. For that reason most alc won't even touch this before 90.

Yea, we BST and SMN own Hakutaku. We're like 8/8 on him now. I was there when Stormie got his O-hat (i just got mine last night). Haku is fierce... i'm not sure how a normal party would bring him down.

Recieved my hat tonight from a kickass party of BSTs and SMNs. There were a few rough spots and deaths due to some hate issues, but that was overcome and the run was successful. I was expecting at least 14 people, but to my suprise it only took 3 SMN and 6 BST to take down Hakutaku. Took them just over half an hour to do it. The HP this mob has is rediculous, I mean its gotta have close to... well its a ******** of health is all.

Much respect and props to the BST and SMN out there. Amazing work!

O hat is rediculously pimp for a reason, and you find out when you see exactly how much it takes to drop Hakutaku ><

We went for this last night, unaware of how strong it would actually be. This mob is not fun to fight unprepared, whole alliance was whiped on the first fight within 5 minutes. Didnt even bring it down 1/4 of its HP. However second fight we tried again after a long battle strategy and won the seconds time. Our alliance was somewhat low ranging from 64-75, I highly suggest you dont attempt this fight that low, we learnt our lesson.Just a tip for those who try this, you want your Melee and BLM's to be as close to 70+ as possible, healers and refreshers can be as low as 65.

If you have the resources, try for 4-5 Stunners (DRK or BLM's), if you setup an order in which to take turns stunning, you should be fine on cover for the AoE and Firaga III. Word to the wise, NIN tank this thing like gods, if you can get 2x 70+ NIN tanks, your party will have potential. We had a BRD in ours casting Mambo x2 on the NIN's which might I add made they're evasion insane, if you can get one, I suggest you try and fit him/her into your party. Anyways the rest of your party doesnt matter, I hear Spirits Within is a very effective WS on this mob, regardless its defence and magic defence is very high, and it has a substantial evasion rate. Fill the rest of your party with DD's if you can, SAM, DRG, DRK, etc.. all work nicely IF 70+.. any lower and they pretty much hit the mob for 0-10 damage everytime, which will make this fight drag out a long time.

On average if you camp to the north, put your mages along the ledge and your melee's in front of them. A clearing party isnt needed, the eyes wont aggro that far up, but if you can get one, take it. This fight should take 15-20 minutes with a good alliance setup, along with a 15 minute cool down after the fight to re-clear the area and prepare for the next spawn. Most important thing is to watch out for the AoE attacks, they will crush your alliance in single blows, so make sure your bring Stunners that know how to Stun lol.

On one of our LS O-hat runs, we only had 2 stunners and decided to try it anyway, when we could not recruit anyone. Not enough, resulted in full alliance wipe, plus outside add party, not to mention poor guy who lost his cluster. Get stunners!!!! And as 69 thf/nin, even with uber gear, I was consistently in the 0-10 hit range; was really too weak/low to make too much of a difference.

I've had, I think, four sucessful runs and we only had one stunner. Stun nothing but Firaga III and use a blink tank for Fire IV/Flare. I paralyze becomes a problem, tank it backwards with TA's.

I almost got my hat a couple days ago.. I'm a WHM, so obviously, I need it.. >.> Had a full alliance for Hakutaku of course, and another group to take care of adds. I trade my cluster, we start fighting Hakutaku, and we get an add while the add group was busy. Wasn't a big problem. A BLM from main alliance tries to sleep it, but BLM sleep doesn't work on them, of course.. So someone decides to call for help on the add.. So Hakutaku goes orange too. -.- It was a mistake, but just to let people know, if you call for help on one thing, EVERYTHING your alliance has claimed goes into CFH status. LS is paying for a new cluster, so I didn't just waste a mil, but it's still disappointing. Ah well. Next time. :p

i know i am just a lowly red mage (71...8k from 72) but i just got my hat, and i look sweet. This fight is tons of fun if you can do it safely (full alliance of 18, lvl 70-75). you may want to bring a few extra people to form a reserve/cleanup party (kill the million eyes that are sure to spawn during the 15+ minute fight). NINJAS RULE for this thing. If you have the means, bring a healthy supply of stunners. I'm goin to level my DRK to 37 so that when i hit 74 i can sub it for stun. I really like fighting this thing, i've fought it 10 times, and my LS needs about 7 more. NONPOLAR rules! Toke too. Good luck fighting this thing.

My Questions is where do I find the mobs that drop the eyes, I.E. are there some special mobs that drop certain eyes. If somebody knows where I can find the info that would greatly be appreciated aswell.
It's better to be judged by 12 then to be carried by 6.

o that's why there's no tonberries now. I noticed that. I was very happy with this update as a BST. Made it a lot easier for me to do crowd control. I suggest anyone doing this to bring some BSTs and let them take care of the pops, links, adds whatever you want to call them. Bring 5 and you won't have to worry about Pops at all because there's 5 eyes that pop in the immediate area where most people fight it.

I wonder if bard could sleep the haku to stop spells as well. Someone said this mob was dark based and brd's sleep is light based i think. Maybe it'd stick w/ the right gear hmmm.

If this is not a hoax, the drop rate is very rare; my LS just killed 9 Hakutakus (4.5hrs >.<) and we got 0 Peacock Charms.

Just a little bit of numbers on the Peacock Charm drop. I have been doing this run with LS 3 sundays in a row. All runs were post update. We did 9, 6, then 13 runs. All runs we won and 0 peacock charms droped. If it does drop it is very very rare.

Care to back up that statement? To my knowledge, the only "evidence" of this is two photographs, which could easily have been faked. As far as I know, no one has ever known anyone who got one of these off haku.

slasher behind the gate, easier to fight since update? i double it.

they basically replace tonb with more million eyes, so you gonna have 5 eyes there instead of 3. tonberry add is better off than FiragaSSSSSSSSSSSSs adds.

yet, the camp look much easier to farm, and for bst to due htkt.

for full alliance set up.... i doubt it will be much easier.

I can confirm that there are no tonberry spawns in the room with the ???, we just took a group to fight him today. The closest tonberries are down the hall on either the right or the left of the door, and there was one tonberry (stabber I think) behind the door.

Just a note, it seems as if the 7/19/05 patch changed the mob positions so that there are no more tonberries by the Hakutaku spawn. If fact there is a pretty big space where you can fight and only have the danger of 1 or 2 million eyes popping on you. I had not fought hktk before this, but others said it was easier like this.

Trying to rate it down to try to make it go away doesn't do anything but makes it harder for me to keep this updated.

Just did this with a few friends. I doubted it at first, but it went decent. We went 2/3 on Hakutaku, with the second run going best and third run coming in a close second. First run we lost. We weren't properly prepared. >.<

Tation.........DRK/WAR - Lv?
Wynnestorm.....THF/NIN - Lv?
Talarc.........THF/NIN - Lv?
Knightoflight..SAM/WAR - Lv?
Smallreaper....WHM/BLM - Lv?
Missezjingles..WHM/BLM - Lv?
Lendle.........DRG/WHM - Lv?
Kehaulani......BLM/WHM - Lv?

(If I left anyone out, I'm sorry.)

For sure, everyone was Lv70+, with the exception of me and Thunderwolf.

We went the first time and the Stun order didn't work so well, since the BLMs involved were already casting Paralyna mostly. The setup wasn't correct, either. The mages didn't have access to the RDM with Refresh. Second time we went we got the setup right and did well. We also did skillchains (Dark and Light) for a bit of extra damage. Barely any, if any at all, pops during the fight. Misterjingles's hat was obtained.

Third time through, tried best to pull it into the nearby tunnel but just kept fighting. (This was my cluster, BTW.) Million Eyes pops towards 25% Hakutaku health, me and Kisame break away and almost duo it. Some melee came for free TP then went back to Hakutaku. Close to the end a Tonberry pops but was subsequently owned. ^^ Hakutaku defeated, Optical Hat obtained.

Get to the fourth run, people have to go. We eventually decide to regroup again tomorrow, possibly with some more help. Didn't wanna risk a cluster loss.

To everyone that didn't get your hat:
Sorry you didn't get your hat. Try not to rush getting it; better not to lose a Cluster worth 1,000,000 Gil (or your hard earned eye-farming hours). >.<

To everyone attempting Hakutaku:
Just follow the guide, but one small suggestion. COME WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT OR GO HOME. Hakutaku is NO joke. Overpower his *** with everything you've got. Good luck.

I would like to thank everyone that helped, especially with letting me join late. /bow
