Full info.

Ok here is the full scoop on this NM:
He is a 60hr spawn from the 3 Garms that pop at I-8, his Spawn window is 1800-0600 only.
He is a DC to 75's and any job without shadows should bring a healer just in case. He doesnt have a huge regen like everyone says, if you can do decent dmg you shouldnt have a problem.
Try to kill the Garms at 1130 to get the most out of the spawn window.
Stand at the far end of his spawn area (Away from the enterance and the Mousse's), this will eliminate that possibility for agro and put you in a decent area to not catch agro from repoping garms.
To get to this NM take every left turn you see when entering from chatau d oriblahblah.

Solo'd today as Nin/Rdm.

Not to hard, hit me a few times, for 150-175. First time his posion move did 250, went through shadows and stoneskin, 2nd time no damage.

Dropped Sukesada, Wolf Hide, 9k gil and I got 61 Exp for it, so Im guessing it would check DC as a normal mob.

Killed the 3 set of wolfs, 3 times, he popped last wolf spawn.

Asked my buddy DRG if he would come check on this thing with me since we had a little extra time tonight. We get there and a Taru Nin was camping it. The window had just opened so there we were, all three of us standing in the small room with our hands on our macros....

First one pops, my friend takes the PH and tells me to stand by in case he pops. The PH is defeated and second PH pops, my friend fights it and about halfway through Shii pops!!

Well me being a sam/nin (job I use to duo) all I have is my low delay Lamian Kaman bow, so I barely am able to get my shot out when the Nin casts... Dia? Yes he was /whm.

So I help my friend kill the PH and we begin resting, I think we both had the same idea that the taru couldn't beat it (he was getting beat up pretty bad) so after 3-4 mins offighting he decides to 2hr and admits defeat in /s before doing so.

My friend and I take it with the dead taru keeping watch (felt bad for him ;;) nothing harder than we've fought before. He did have a nasty Paralyze move but I was able to force my shadows up. In the end, the dog died and I was able to sport a new toy :D

On my way to check the 2 shades i pass here, and since the shades arent up, i decide to camp Shii for a while to pass time.

After 8hrs of killing Garms i need to leave for LS events. . .no pop

next day i come back and try for the same. After a while he did pop (Earthday, 4:00, Waning Gibbous 64%)

Party consisted of an elvaan nin75/drk and mithra rdm75/smn
spells used
Paralyze2 Protect4
Hojo: Ni Shell 4
Kurayami: Ni Haste
Gravity Refresh

started the fight with Circle Blade-> Blade: Jin (Impaction) + MB Thunder 3 (~650dmg). Took like 30% of it's HP. Didn't notice any HP regen (possibly because it was past 4:00 am) nor any other important thing about him. He hit quite hard (~180dmg to an elv nin/drk with 325DEF and 71+15 VIT). A rather short and boring fight.

Most likely soloable by most classes lvl75 with utsu: ni and melee abilities.

Me and a friend of mine (75BLM/WHM and 75NIN/WAR) decided to go camp this NM for a bit, i took the info from here about where it spawns and how it spawns so we fought the Garms (I-8) around 14:00ish so they'd pop within the window of 18:00-6:00. Sure enough after the first 2 Garms, Shii popped. It does seem to have high HP and the regen wasn't so bad after bio II and frost, i'd toss in ocassionaly stuns for my friend to get utsusemi up, but i mainly helped cure and paralyna. I'm glad i casted Barparalynra before the fight cause we'd both get the AoE Paralyze, it made it easier to cast.

Wasn't too long of a fight, mainly just cured, stunned, casted paralyna and some DoT while my friend handled the damage. Oh yeah also.. watch out for the trap door that is there where the NM spawns!! Didn't really see anyone mention that but just a heads up. Anyways, we took Shii down and it dropped the Sukesada, convinced it has to be a 100% drop. I don't see how someone can solo this with other Garm pops and with bats and moouses around, detecting low HP (Garms) and just the annoyance of the jelly or bat aggroing you, anyways fun fight and sweet as great katana, can't wait to use it, thanks again to my friend that helped me with it ^^

I'm going to attempt to kill this as 68NIN/(Probably)WHM.

Wish me luck...Looks like I'll need it.

I'd ask friends for help, but where's the adventure in that!? ^_^

75 SMN/WHM here, went to give it a try last night after helping some LS friends on other stuff.

i didn't even really remeber the detail on the NM and stuff, but since the server just came back on, thought i'll give it a try before going to bed.

got down there, wandered around a little and finally found the spot. let Carbuncle to kill off the 3 Garms and wait for a little. i guess i was just lucky, since i didn't even realize it only pops at night until i read this page again, it's night time and it poped. so i just order Carbuncle to attack it and i run off to the side. now comes the fun part.

i didn't even remeber that this thing has super regen and what not and after the first 2 Carbuncle, i paniced a little when i saw that it's HP is still full. and i got to worry even more when i throw Fenrir on it and the HP bar still didn't change. so i ask some friends to come over and help with it. while a couple of them was getting ready to come over, i just keep kiting Shii around while waiting.

but after a while, something interesting happened. i notice that it's HP actually dropped and didn't get back up. then i realize that it's day time in game already and i think that must be what stops it's regen. in any case, without it's regen, it's super easy to finish this ugly little puppy. just kite around with Carbuncle and wore it down and let Fenrir finish the job (it's a dog eat dog world after all~ XD).

got the great katana, 9000 gil and a wolf hide out of it. pretty fun little adventure ^^

Very tough.. me and a 75BLM duoed it, took a good 10-15minutes to kill. This thing has massive regen. The only way that we managed to wear it down was through WS. (BLM was meleeing and curing me). I would estimate this NM has about 100-200HP regen per tick. No seriously. It practically negated all of the damage I did to it as 75NIN. Another thing is that it attacked very fast and accurately (it has double attack also). If you can stick paralyze and blind on this, it is VERY helpful.

My sam just hit 66 and i wanted to get that gkatana, low delay, nice dmg sound good D;

I went in Bostaunieux Oubliette (as nin/war 75), I-8 begin kill mouse then go for the place holder (remember 16min repop) kill second mouse kill bat rest hp (bat aggro rest).

After 1h30min he finally pop @20h30 game time, i had 900hp was mid-rest hp, i decide to wait for 1k hp then go fight :o

I engaged with jubaku, STICK and kick in often :D then blind and slow landed,i throw a 200%tp ws for 700 dmg, was thinkin he will be so easy ^^;
ANd i made a mistake with shadow, took one critical for 250 (had berserk up), then hit for 170 additionnal effect terror, and contineu to hit me few more time (terror is a move who stun you, his terros was like 10sec stun >.<).

Put me down to like 300hp, i get shadow up then he use howl (aoe paralyze, very strong one ; ;)and i manage to Mijin Gakure with 50hp or so ; ;

I went back for more, was 2am game time, my HP in Sandy (for outpost), i know i had to rush if i want to give a try cause depop 6am game time :X
I run in found my way and 2 Garm poped near him :x, on other side 1 mouse (witch take long to kill high resist to phisycal dmg).

i found a mini spot in the middle and engaged, after 30 sec garm moved i pull back and got mouse aggro >.> .

I blind slow the mouse go full evasion gear, and i see that Shii keep beein paralyze from spell, i watch the day iceday, good poitn for me for stick paralyze.

I continue like this got my shadow raped few time and took few hit from mouse and Shii, like 5 hit (0 with aditionnal effect : terror hopefully), and manage to kill him got 54xp and 9000gils, a revival tree root and my gkatana :D

I watch my HP 324/1410 @.@ Got the mouse on me still :o i killed it took me long then rest for like 5 min until hp was not yellow for blood aggro >.> run to ronfaure with my new toy :D

Solo it might not be a good idea cause of his paralyze very strong, a nin or /nin with any kind of mage can duo it with no pb at all.

me and a smn friend decided to camp this today. i went as sam74/nin37 and he was smn74/whm37. around 9pm vanadiel time we started to kill the 3 placeholders (garms). they have a 16min respawn time and i was worried that shii wouldnt spawn before 6am. but luckly shii spawned around 5am.

the fight was very easy, i blink tanked most of the time and shared hate with fenrir. my friend focused on healing me and casting paralyna. shii droped sukesada (100% drop), a dark crystal and 4500gil for everyone.

I am unsure of this pop time as well, I've spent 4hrs once, 3hrs the next day, 4hrs the third and it finally popped.

The whole time I was there, there was no one else camping it nor when I /sea the area.

It did pop within the 18:00 - 6:00 time range for me.

Soloed with a 73NIN, 75BRD no problems.

It also dropped on my first try, which leads me to think since everyone else who said they killed it dropped it, so it may be 100% drop.

i think this mob have a 60/72h repop window or so: i was camping the first day (sunday night) and killed the PH at 12:00 Vana'diel time, at the first repop on night time he spawned but i was unluck and i died when mob was near at 1% hp because i aggroed the other 2 Garm when i was lower hp :(

so i decided to try again and i was back to camping it the day after, no pop, and the day after again, no pop, the day after again, no pop, when finally the fourth day after his first pop he decided to spawn again, this time i was with a friend and we managed well the fight even if we aggroed everything again, but this time we won and i got the katana as well.
For everyone that wants to get this

I am told this is a GK that alot of sams want. So i will tell you how to pop it.

I do not know the time of this NM. I am unsure if its a 2hr pop a 4hr pop 21-24hr.But I can tell you what you have to do to pop it.

1. the NM only pops at night. Thats why alot of the people that post here say that it just depoped on them. The NM only pops from 18:00-06:00.

2. so what you need to do depending on how much DD you have is kill the 3 PH @I-8 so that the first pop is as close to 18:00 as you can make it.
I am a 75 NIN and If i killed the first PH@ 10:45ish it would repop about 18:20. Thats just to give you a idea as to when to start pushing down the place holders.

So besides that it took me about 3 days of camping for about 2hrs a day to get the NM to pop. I got the drop not sure if its 100%.

I also killed it with just myself and a whm. the NM is not that hard but it does have some nice Regen. it hit me buffed for about 120 a hit when it did hit me so becareful of blood arggo from the other hounds if you have a PLD tank.

I camped this guy for about 8 hours today for a SAM. Im a 69 bst and planned to solo it. Finally after it poped (must be 18-60hour) everything was going great, Until i notice, SHII Regens HP about as quick or quicker than 1 Bloodsucker can take off....sigh, wish anyone that has fought this woulda mentioned that, We had to bail, Was going to bring it to zone, but me and sam got aggro from 1 ghost and had to warp..Got back asap and Shii Despawned. Cry*
Im upset
