THF solo

so i decided to go ahead and try to solo it as THF since i haven't seen any comments about it. 75thf 48+ evasion.. went in with 200+tp. Tried landing Hojo and Kurayami and neither would stick. So i decided to just tank and bloody bolt if i got hit. wrong idea.. bloody bolts very rarely hit with capped marksmanship and macroing ranged acc gear. all in all got it maybe 1/8 down then died after 11mins of fighting...

I just soloed this mob the other day first i tryed nin75/war obviously i died half battle ; ; then i switched nin/whm bought some yag. drinks cuz my mp was like 120 (elvan). So basically strat was keep shadows up, keep casting jubaku and kurayami and slow when wears and keep healing when it hits me... (with 120 mp i healed twice and use yag drinks like 5 or 6 times)hits about 150-200 normal hits and >300 criticals so its good to keep ur shadows on..... nothing more to say fight was like 20-25 mins. pretty nice one and i bet is a lot easier with one healer haste would be very helpfull also!

This NM can easily be taken by a lvl 72 NIN needing the weapon skill and atleast a lvl 65 RDM...I took him out today with a NIN75 NIN72 and RDM75/WHM
75NIN tanked the whole fight, did'nt get hit once, Slow II and Hojo: Ni stacked so that helped more than anything...took about meh...5minutes?

I was camping MysticMaker Profblix a couple days ago, and I saw a NIN taking this thing on. He was 72NIN/RDM and he was getting owned. I tossed a cure in, which I shouldn't have done... he zoned cause his shadows were down and he was getting hit for 200+ per hit. >_< He hits very hard!! He came back a couple of minutes later while I was taking a Goblin Reaper on. Lol, he hit me for 140+ with Stoneskin ON, and when it was off about 220+ but luckily I had Chainspell up and I Chainspell + Escape (<3 that). Moral of this story: Don't cure a NIN who is doing this unless he'll win, cause he'll come back for you and own you hard unless you can take him on. He hurts..

At 72 some gobs there would aggro, some would not.

The Mantra there will either spawn right in the ??? room or to the tunnel to the north.

Water AND Air eles will spawn in the tunnel to the north of the ???. Thank God I duo'ed with a BRD.

He's almost impossible to Paralyze, Blind and Slow worked consistently.

Like other posters said, he his VERY hard when shadows are down. Even with -20% physical he still did 160-220 on me.

Just soloed this as NIN75/RDM37. After putting off getting Blade: Ku for so long (cuz Jin > Ku) I finally decided to get it over with. Once I found out the mob was a crab I knew I could solo it, and w/ Mijin Guruke up, at least you wont lose xp if it goes wrong.

Setup was Stun Kukri (dagger) in main hand for Energy Drain ws (drains mp) and ********* +1 in the offhand for another stun effect and my normal evasion gear. He's not that hard if you keep him enfeebled with jubaku, hojo, and kuryami. I was surprised he actually resisted my enfeebles occasionally. I started off By Dia II'ing him then working the elemental wheel, because it does great damage. Between wheels I'd make sure my shadows were up, make sure my enfeebles stuck, then build some tp and energy drain anytime I needed the mp.

The few times the crab managed to hit me he hit me HARD! I had stoneskin up most of the time and it still wiped stoneskin and I took 150 dmg. At one point I was down to 250hp with no mp struggling to get another Energy Drain off so I could regen myself slowly back to full. Dispel everytime he does def boost and shell. The fight took little under and hour but it was a good feeling when a few jp's showed up near the end and cheereed me on.


I got 280xp.

killed it with my friend, lvl 72 nin. me rdm 61.
(^-^)v got 203 exp points. almost all my enfeebles don't stick, only frost landed at the first round of casting. what i do is only haste and cure my friend.

got aggro by Goblin Hunter at last part of the fight ( cause easy prey with high def and eva) but managed to sleep it 3 times before the fight ended.

hope this helps. ^-^ careful of elementals tho, one spawned during the fight but was far enough not to draw aggro.

I was attempting to kill Mysticmaker Profblix (don't ask) and I saw a party of level 75s pass me by so I decided to go follow them. They cleared the area of gobs and examined a ??? near a pool of water. Out came this NM so I took a picture. Afterwards I asked them why they killed it and they said it was for the Blade: Ku weapon skill quest. I gave my congratulations for completing it and they warped out and I went back to camping Mysticmaker.

I sent in my screenshot...I know it's bad but you try to take a good picture of a small NM surrounded by 6 people in a dark cave.
WTF?

What is this mob?

We where camping at lvl 61-62 Toramas in Onzozo, all of a suggen (middle of fight) this NM comes along and kills all the mages then continue to walk past us all?!? He hit a lvl 60 mage for 400+ damage.

Edit: Seems like this NM is 250 Katana Weaponskill NM, someone must have triggered it and it continue to wander around? It still weird that it killed our 3 mages then just moved past us?

Your mages probably just cured whoever was running from this NM, and in doing so, they got more aggro than he did...therefore, when the NM came along, they were being targeted by it.
