hes pretty easy he just has alot of HP and uses throat stab so can be difficult to solo unless ur lucky

I solo'd this a couple weeks ago and even recorded it. Wasn't hard at all.

Here's a link to the video for those interested.

Lol, bad idea

Well I was out in Yhoat trying to get to the tele point...and I happened upon this guy. I conned a lot of the things in the area, and they were EP to me at lvl 61. So I figured this guy would be a hell of a match...

Man was I right...lol...

I had all my buffs up and I approached him while invisible. Switch to fire staff and flare him. Hits for 1,080.

Knocked out like an 1/8 of his hp.

As soon as I saw that, I knew to manafont + warp. He wiped out stoneskin in 2 swings and was doing 110 per swing.

So if it's useful, I found that Sunberry must have upwards of 9k HP. Use caution.
In the end...we're all just a bunch of shaved monkeys.
Level must be incorrect

As several posters have noted earlier, there's no way this NM is lvl 72... much less lvl 74. I solo'd him as a 71SAM/WAR with my (gimped) Polearm skill of 189 and didn't have any problems whatsoever. It was a long fight (roughly 4-5 minutes), sure, but by no means difficult. If I had to guess, I'd put him at around the level 60 range... like this site does.

And by the by, if anyone's looking for tips to dodge Throat Stab do not stay locked on the mob while you're engaged. The second you see, "...readies Throat Stab" turn and run like hell- the range for that move is incredibly short and the Tonberrys can't move while their preparing it ^^

For a greater economy shall follow us and it will be outdone. And a greater autonomy shall follow us and it too will be outdone. And a greater feeling shall follow Love and it too we will blow to dust.
Retired. For reals this time.
I did as BST 68 /WHM.

Easy fight, I called for pet and waited until next call pet was 2min the engaged fight and put pet on him while I was paralysing and slow him, after first pet was death he was down to around 35% HP left so I called new pet and we killed him pretty fast after that.

Got the rancor handle, 42exp and about 640g

42exp to lvl 68 is what you get from a EP+ close to DC so I figure he is around lvl 62-64 based on my EXP as BST solo.

If I had a EM charmed pet it could solo him for sure but none near him or in the jungle.

He is not lvl 72-74 lol. I solo'd him as a lvl 63 rdm/nin and it was a very easy fight. Throat Stab did a lot of damage, but other than that he was a pushover.
It's lvl 66

At lvl 74 I got 28 experience fighting him, the only damage I took was from Throat Stab which did 1055 damage (I am so bad at dodging that >.>) but according to MysteryTour's chart 28 experience at level 66+ would make a mob 8 levels below me, making this guy lvl 66. I was hoping he actually was 72-74 though... I wish I could solo a mob that high, that easy.

I was waiting for a Carbuncle Mitts party when I came across a 67WAR trying to solo this yesterday; he asked for some cures, so I obliged, but he went down to throat stab before I could get enough cures onto him. By that point my party had zoned in; they wiped the floor with the little toerag, the WHM raise-III'ed the unfortunate WAR and we invited him into the party to pick up the Rancor Handle.

Came across him on my own today and decided to take a crack solo as RDM65/BLM. Key point that I don't think anyone else has made, is that he resisted Sleep consistently -- this with Pluto's staff, capped enfeebling and AF skill bonuses. I had to Bind him whilst I converted once, and I had one moment of concern when he used throat stab. Expecting to Sleep him at some point, I didn't use any DoT spells until the latter part of the fight, so if I were to fight him again, I'd use these aggressively and the fight would probably be shorter than the 15 minutes it took me this time. I'd also make much heavier use of Drain than I did.

I had to equip all the +ACC gear (+12) I was carrying to hit him reliably. He uses a fast dagger and hits hard with it, but has no unusual attacks. This leads me to think he may be a THF.

cannotlinkto says his level is 58; I won 44XP at level 65 which puts him at level 60. I agree with other posters -- no way this guy is 70+.

Like everyone else has said, this guy definitely isn't Lv72-74. I found him while helping on a ZM4 run, said to myself "Hey, you only live once" and attacked. I had a 75WHM with me at the time but I needed no help whatsoever. Could've easily soloed without taking a single hit (assuming he didn't use any attacks that go through shadows). I probably didn't need shadows, anyway. He had about 20% accuracy on me. XD

Either I'm just that damn good, or this guy is -not- Lv72-74. >.>

Ive ran across this NM while ******** around in yhoator jungle, killing tonberries without intent. At ninja level 60 i took on this nm, contrary to LS recomendations, in about 8 minutes i brought his Hp down to about 30% when i lost casting time and decided to use mijin gakure. This will be done solo, within the next two levels.

It is impossible tht this guy is lv 72-74. A friend and I were helping out a THF friend of ours toget his horneteneele dagger. The THF with us was lv 61, he already had his dagger. The NIN with us that we were helping had been leveling THF alot and it was about time to get his hornetteneedle, he came as NIN57. I was there as WHM61. After the THF agroes some tonnberry because he didn't know it was by sound we all zone and figure we'd look around a bit.

We find him, and like all other times "... if it gets bad... zone" Of course when he's like 3/4 of the way dead, I disband and they were like "what are yuo doing?" ... I told them I never wanted to have to deal with tonberry hate... ever. So I just keep them alive outside battle. All in all it was a really easy fight.

There is no way that this NM is lv 72-74.

That lcl cant be right. I nearly solo'ed him withmy 62 PLD. a 60 rdm friend of mine joined in 1/2 way and the fight went even easier. Without the rdm the NM may have outlasted me, but, like any mob a pld can solo, it was clearly lower lvl than me.

Soloed as 74PLD/37WAR.

People said I wouldn't be able to with throat stab and all.

I won in about 10 minutes, no mp, about 500 hp left.

He used Throat stab once, of which I zoned and then voked him back outside before he regenned hp.

Wasn't that hard, definitely not 72-74.

The level range on this mob is wrong, I just soloed it as a 65 smn/whm and got 32 exp. it should be about level 58 or so. if it were 72-74 I'd have gotten 250 exp.
Why does my 550k JSE look like I rolled in dog doo!? Don't they have Dry-Cleaners in Vana'Diel?

I fought this with two of my friends.. 63 nin Elysion, 63 rdm Abduhlwaheed, and then me 61 whm. we were going to the temple for the offering to spawn the carby mitts NM, but on the way the nin is like "Hey its an NM! lets fight it!" I thought he was kidding until i saw his health going down so i ran my *** up the stairs and started curing.. it was a really easy fight. allakhazam needs to change the lvl info on this tonberry ^^;

I have solo'd this guy 4 different times, only thing that really hurts is Everyone's Grudge, gotta love being a NIN!

Although I find that the prize you get from the Beastman treasure (which is what the Rancor handle is for) is not really worth the pain of killing this guy. Especially since it raises your Tonberry hate.
