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

Solo'd as 65 SMN

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.

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 **** 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.

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 ****- the range for that move is incredibly short and the Tonberrys can't move while their preparing it ^^

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 **** 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.

mmk, here's the score, me ( 65 PLD ) and my best friend ( 58 DRK ) just got zilart mission 1 or whatever, where we gotta go to that timple. anywho, we had no clue what to do there so we start fighting tonberrys, all the sudden BOOM, this lil' guy spawns, at first i said " ok lets try, if all goes bad zone " ( i thought we had no chance ) first fight we allmost had him, both of us 2 houred, had to zone at the last, i had 60hp out of 1210 he had 104 out of 1172 =/ so i say " lets try one more time, this time 300% TP, so we do, we go in, allmost full health, 300% TP ... i use Vorporal blade, it takes a hunk out, i keep spaming that, he keeps spaming Vorporal sythe, finaly were both allmost dead, he uses soul eater, gets hate dies, it turns around, i kill it =/ ... well at least its dead now lmao ( and WTF is this item for (( Yes >.< i passed it to him cuz he died and all )) )

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.

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.

I'm 68 RDM, with so many jobs levelled to full sub level it isn't funny. I'm also 60 thf, been playing since Oct. 2003, and both rdm and thf would be 75 by now if i didn't level too many **** jobs. (I have 4 jobs left that are under 20 >.>)
Anyways, getting back to the point, my LS was doing ZM-4, so I decided to sub drk for a little extra dmg and still have drain and aspir (and because i'm too low on funds to afford decent arrows for rng sub). I OP warp to yhoat and head to the entrance to wait for LS, decide to look up my old friend Bisque (I tried to solo him before as 58rdm/nin, got him to half hp, then couldn't get utsusemi timed right and kept getting interrupted, I died ;.;).
So Bisque is there, but since i didn't have nin sub i knew it would be risky to tackle him head-on, so I went with the old grav+bind kiting routine, and bind worked beautifully. However, as most rdm's should know if they're halfway decent solo'ers and don't have blm sub, i saved most of my mp for buffing myself with stoneskin, haste, phalanx, etc., as well as for drain, refresh, and the infrequent cure needed when I didn't notice stoneskin wear around the same time bind did. For attacks, I mainly used bio (for the initial damage), dia, for def down, and bow + bodkin arrows. My archery is 196, caps at 195 at lvl 67, so it's not capped for 68 yet (all levels obtained in rdm, i had Sidewinder when rng was 15 XD), so i was hitting fairly decently, about 60-75% accuracy, and each arrow doing 68, crits for 85. the only time I ever got close to him was when grav and bind wore, or when i closed in for a quick vorpal blade.
Fighting this way can take a long time, but I find it extremely satisfying to solo a long fight and win when someone tells me i don't stand a chance solo. (I solo'd the thf AF gob NM in Sauromugue as 62rdm/nin, and that shut a few people up, let me tell you XD) I did have to convert twice, because, let's face it, keeping buffs like stoneskin and blink up, as well as haste (to cut down on bind recast) eats more mp than refresh can account for, and this thing is not aspir-able. But on the bright side, i never went into yellow hp, apart from converting, and the only ws Bisque seemed able to use was "Sigh" (evasion up) since i was never in range for anything else.
Overall, fight took about 14 minutes, but I was immensely satisfied with myself, and I got the Rancor Handle and a light crystal. If this NM was 72-74, the fight would have been much harder with drk sub. I only got 2 xp though, since LS invited me to the ZM pt halfway through the fight and were waiting for me to finish.

Anyways, sorry if I rambled or patted myself on the back too much ^^;; I'm just stoked at soloing yet another NM that people said I couldn't.

62 blm here. I've been soloing Tonberries all day using the sleep/nuke method. I've been on coffer tonberries: the pursuers,stabbers, and maledictors. Just ran into this guy and was pretty psyched, thinking I'd hand him his ***. Well, he resisted my Elemental Seal'd Sleep II, and critted me for 200. I ran to the zone. >.>

Went back to try again, same story.

I have such a great story for this NM. We were headed to the Temple for Wespes to get larvae for Hornetneedle. (Two THF and myself, blm playing healer) We padded up to the temple and highest level thf says Hold on. (On choco) we walk up the stairs right in front of the entrance to the temple and there, sitting a platform, is Bisque. I got some awesome screen shots of him and then suddenly the thf gets off his chocobo. I am just staring as he walks up behind the Tonberry and happily mugs it for 450+ gil! It agros him (duh) and he just beats feet with Flee, this tonberry running (slowly) after him. Me and other thf are laughing as we chase the pair on chocobo to the entrance of the place. No kill there and some awesome SS of him mugging the Sunberry! (Also, great side story - someone linked almost 10 tonberries to the zone. That mugging-higher thf was afk and they still agro'd him. We had to run like **** but I managed to invis him before I zoned (almost died doing it) and luckily, the invis held long enough for the tonberries to leave! - worst part is he came back and just went 'huh?' - I smacked him -.-)

More confirmation on what's been said since mid-June of last year that this NM is nowhere near the level Allakhazam.com states him to be. I got 14 exp with a pet at Lv70. That would 18exp at Lv70 if I didn't have a pet. Has all the tricks any other Tonberry has, but nothing else that I noted.

I'm level 25THF/MNK. I thought it would be fun to fight this guy, to see how much damage I could do, and how much it would do. I sneak attacked it for 0. it critical'ed me for 500+. got some nice screenshots.

I messed around with him earlier today while out in the jungle to get the teleport crystal.
I wasn't able to kill him but being a 60thf/nin, and solo - I think I did fairly well on my own.

I Sneak Attacked him from the beginning, but didn't realize I had 100% TP - but prompty used that. I was able to recast my shadows fairly well.
But he still got some crazy *** hits for 100+ in on me. And him being a Thief as well, weilding a dagger, you can imagine how long my shadows last x.X
I shoulda cast Hide and ran, but instead I stacked SA to it >.>

Anyways, I got him down to 75% HP before I had to turn tail and 2hr+instant warp outta there with about 13hp left.

If he's really that high of a level, I'm surprised he wasn't harder.

I had my first experience with this NM and the temple of uggaleph today. I just hit lvl 59rdm last night so im feeling pretty cocky and buff up with protect, stoneskin, phalanx, blink, haste, enblizzard, regain MP, bind him, give him some elemental debuffs, enfeeble, bioII, then started to whack at him. Stoneskin lasted about 3 hits before he hit me for around 70. His dagger is fast too so i knew this wouldnt work out too well. So, using my rdm tactics knowing I cant sleep him with debuffs on i throw him a gravity and kite him around this circle near he spawned. Very convenient I thought, so I proceeded to rebuff with stoneskin and phalanx, turn around, give him a few swings, drain, and run around again. recast gravity, reland some elemental debuffs and so on.

At this point i see ive been fighting him for roughly 5 minutes already and his HP was at about 7/8th full. So I figure i probably could have kept up my routine but who knows if i would last so I sent a message to a lvl 75brd/nin who was killing some tonberry near there and he agreed to help. After the bard arrived he was pretty much dead within another 5 minutes. I recall getting a little bit of exp and he passed on the item since he said he had it.

I was messing around with a DRG friend of mines *me being a 52 RDM/BLM, my friend (Tay) was a 60 DRG/THF at the time* It was pretty easy, we cleared some of the tonberries before getting to him.

Well... we started fighting, he got throat stabbed near the end *yay* so i was healing him up. Then.... He turns towards me *I'm at half HP or so, so i was ok for the most part* and does Everybody's Grudge for 1853 damage... so... i de-level but got a raise II so i had about 300 tnl ^^...

We got the Rancor handle! rofl

Yesterday, a friend (60rdm) and I (62mnk)were out exploring the jungles, it was both of our's first time to the temple. So we climbed the stairs and I spent a minute looking at the view. When I turned around Artemls(rdm) had already run ahead, and this NM was where I was hoping to see Art.

Of course it checked as Impossible to Guage so I tried to regroup when he agrroed me, which at level 62 is a bad sign when things start gunning for you.

He hit me for about 100 a swing, making me a little nervous. When I engaged though I hit for roughly 80-110 a punch, so we decided to stay. He had a move called "vorpal slice" or something to that effect, it wouls stuck out but it missed me so Im not exactly sure the damage on it. Later he did the standard "throat stab" for 1000+ damage but it wasnt enough to kill me and soon after he was done for.

We got 25 experience each for a total of 50, which seems kinda low if he is level 72-74. Plus his overall stats didnt seem all that much for an NM of that apparent level range.

So out of that trip we got an NM drop and three pretty pictures. In my opinion that equals a good trip ^^

I was wondering around out there one day and i remember seeing him upstairs all the time so since i was bored i decided to fight him and at lvl 73 i buffed up and pulled him down toward a zone. His attacks never broke stoneskin. his most lethal attack was throat stab which broke my stoneskin for 600+ damage. after that i just healed and converted mid battle and cure IV and cure III'd myself and he used everyones grudge which never broke my stoneskin and shortly later he was face down and i got the rancor handle. not a bad fight just kept him enfeebled at all times. In my opinion hes much lower lvled than hes said to be or at least really weak. :P

I'd really have to disagree with the lvl 72-74 given to this guy! Yesterday me and some other 5 LS members came to fool around in yhoator jungle, and kill some stuff!! Well when we got to the temple we came upon this little guy! Nobody could chk the net for its lvl, so we decided to rest and give it a try! (The whm had tele-yhoat rdy just in case) We saw some ppl coming so we decided to get it before they came. We started fight and saw it did to me (lvl 52 pld with earth staff) dmg around the 70-90's normally, and 120 critical attacks! It didnt look good! We kept fighting anyways, i had hate controlled, until the guy does some technique (cant remember the name) which resets hate! WHM casts cure III or IV or me, since that same attack leaves me in 268 HP out of 1013, WHM dies, followed by the BLM! I re-gained its attention using invincible, and told the rdm to raise the whm! WHM raised, used bene, i still had agro, but just in case the whm got behind me, used cover! We were able to kill the guy after 20 mins, having 2 members die, but one was raised, so its really one dead at the end! The thing dropped the handle, and we r now figuring out whats it for! Me, being 52, got 128 xp, which would b something VT or maybe low IT, dunno! The pt we had was:

PLD 52 (me)
WHM 50
DRK 50
DRK 47
BLM 47
RDM 50

Lvl 72-74 NM would've raped us, dont u think?

he`s no big deal really ..
i just killed him with my 2 friends when we were going to the Temple ..
PT = 57 NIN(me) - 53 THF - 65 BLM
fight is really easy if u don`t panic after throat stab .. lol
"Everyone`s Grudge" never hits me with Utsusemi always on .. though he was hitting me for 100~120 dmg normal hits .. but in the end he died cuz i SC Distortion with THF and BLM MB blizzard 3 ..
i assume his lvl is 60~62 no higher .. cuz he gave us like 20 exp each with a lvl 65 in pt ..

I'd say the level is correct. We killed him with a lvl 73 and lvl 75 in the PT and I got a very small amount of XP (25?).
