Soloed this guy as 70RDM/35BLU as taru. Fight was really long but kinda easy fight. Stonesking recast got availble almost same time he hitted stonesking off so not much curing either. Realised that he highly resistant to paralyze or even immune o.o; no items or food just my purple gear. Bad drops only got some gil and mercury. Did have friends otw to help me as looked I was going to die at 1st as stonesking wore fast but they were too slow for RDM DD lol

I was headed through here to hunt for a coffer, and was curious about this guy because when I was here for ZM4 someone said 'be careful of NM in this room' well I didnt see anything at the time so I took a peek when I was passing by and saw him. Was 73nin/rdm (/rdm was to reduce downtime fighting tonberries since many of their atack ignore shadows, anyways...) oh one funny thing, either I got lucky or he may not actually agro, he moves pretty fast around the room and I sat down to get a few ticks of healing in to make sure I was topped off and he walks RIGHT through me, doesnt agro so o_O anyways...

I could not get a single debuff to stick, not one(ninja debuffs that is, not rdm) after about 3 rounds of attempts I gave up to find his accuracy was rather bad to begin with but a blind or paralyze would have been fantastic. Only once was there a danger when I had medium low hp (around 800) and he slept me with that kreizkral move or however its spelled. And the wake up call was a triple attack, with every hit connecting -_-. So I chugged a half dozen pots I had on me lol and finished the fight eventually. I saved my MP for emergencies and never needed it. I did cure myself to full near the end in case he used meltdown but he didnt. It was a long slow fight, I was only hitting him for around 20-30 dmg, with ~50dmg for crits and blade:jin was doing 200-350. Ninjutsu attacks did around 30-40magic dmg. I was in a moderate evasion setup (gold earring+1, corse cape, scorp harness, emp pin, yasha tekko for some parry (which I gained a whole lvl of on this fight woot!) and my ninja hakama when night came (started fight around mid-day game time). after a good 15-20minutes of fighting I was rewarded with 36 exp, 6,000gil and a hard shield. Was depressed to find the shield was worth so little but I felt good on my accomplishment. Ended the fight with ~800hp and ~6mp (casted stoneskin when we was maybe <10%hp left in prep for a possible meltdown since I have no way to stun)

Oh and by my calculations (counting attacks and doing some averaging) he has around 9000HP possibly a little more. did not have a parser running so cant be 100% positive but this seems like a good number. he is definately one resilliant ******* to say the least but not considerably dangerous.

I would say a nin/thf or nin/war would have a considerably faster time with this guy because there were a few times were he got really lucky with hits but then there were times where I would go for a couple minutes without losing a single shadow. The only real issue was the TP sleep+dmg attack. So the extra evasion from /thf or extra dmg from /war would make him alot easier to do if you really want to kill this guy.

On another note I still havent gotten a friggin coffer key to drop -_- but I now have 12 kindread seals, 6 beastment seals, scrolls of thundaga II, Thunder III, a stack of mercury, 5 doll shards, a stack of venom potions, a smn testimony, thf testimony, blm testimony and a piece of white steel LOL All this crap and no coffer key ;_; and gained around 1500exp >.>

Ok, any1 thats say this guy cant b solo'd wrong. Earlier had him own 1 of my friends right in front of me, (friend was a 69DRG) So i decide to try my luck at him. Everything was good until he hit half health, started attackin like a punk. I got him to 38% before i blow up (75NIN). If i would had full health when i started to fight him, i coulda taken him ez. But i was stupid and want tostart the fight at 70% health. Goes to show ya, always b at ur best to win.

The Manipulator was the 1st vibrator patented by physician George Taylor in 1869. Was this NM named after a *****? Of course!

Nice history lesson there ... o.O

Maybe this explains why he drops a -hard- shield?

can solo it as 75blm. gravity it and just run around and nuke it. wear a black cloak and you get slow refresh. takes awhile and not worth it at all (unless you're bored)

You can NOT steal Mana Barrels from this. All you get is a Doll Gizmo. I still haven't found out what that does. Anybody know?

Killed this guy on the way to doing the Leviathan avatar fight. Our party configuration was: 75drk/73blm/67mnk/65blm/64brd/61whm

Not terribly tough, no aoe attacks, and the drk tanked it and got maybe half life at his lowest point during the battle. It dropped Hard Shield and we each got 1000 gil
