Soloed This Just Now
# Jul 31 2007 at 2:22 PM Rating: Decent
Relatively Not too hard.

Was a BST/WHM my first time soloing this as a bst.

For Charming -- For Melee
Monster Signa --Battleaxe +1
2X Hope Rings --Lantern Shield
Noble'S Ribbon --2x Courage Rings
Leaping Boots --Trump Crown
Bird Whistle --Leaping Boots
Kingdom Gloves --Wing Pendant
Scale Cuisses --Scale Cuisses
Garrison Tunica --Garrison Tunica

I prepared Heavily for this fight

10 Hi-Potions +2 (1K each)
1Tavnazian Taco ( I chose the extra 20hp20mp 1dex 6vit 3 agi and 25% Def over Sushi since the sushi was a % acc and I was only level 20 it wasnt really worth using) This cost me 2k for one.
1 Pamama Au Lait 1.3k


I entered the battlefield alone. Casted Protect and Aquaveil used tavnazian taco, rested to full mp hp since the taco added 20/20 hp/mp Then used the pamama au lait to not waste the hp regen while standing around.

Macroed into my Charm gear. Charmed the Furies on the left mischarmed 2 times had to run around and use 3 hi potions +2 finnaly charmed. Sent to attack Colo-Colo used 2hr. ran away from battle, let the other fury come to me melee'd the uncharmed fury, but then the charmed fury died against colo so i tried to charm the one i was meleeing, Mischarmed.

After the mischarm I ran around until charm was up charmed it and sent to attack Colo-Colo.

Colo was at 19% when I sent to attack it died I melee'd the furies to death.

No drop.

What I would Change? I would used DEX rings instead of courage rings, my accuracy was horrible with capped axe skill was missing almost 2/5 the time.

I thought using the tavnazian taco was a very good idea it boosted my def to 126 and I was only being hit for around 12 dmg by the furies but what almost killed me was running around and having drain hit me.

Good Luck with this BCNM everyone

Me and my friends tried this three times yesterday. First time we got a Scroll of Invis and the Astral Ring. Then we got crap. Unfortunately we died the third time because I was out of juice. Idiots went in without letting me go back to sandy to restock.
But we set the record on the Ifrit server the first time we did it.

BTW, I went as WHM/BLM, we had a PLD/WAR and a BST/NIN. Worked okay, but me and the paladin had to use our 2 hours. He used Invincible in the first fight, I used mine the second time around. I found that I need 3 pineapple juices to get through this without too much trouble. Selbina Milk is cheap and good for HP regen. And I was using Roast Shrooms for MND, but I'm gonna try Rolanberry Pies next time. Don't need the INT, but the MP boost will help.

This BCNM is very fun to solo as a BST. If youre well prepared, the fight shouldnt be TOO incredibly difficult. The key is just not to panic whenever you mischarm.

Overall, the drop rate on rings (the only thing that sells nicely on my server) appears to be ~20%.

Try it out if you have extra seals. :)

You know... after doing this a lot more recently...

sometimes my charm appears to work very easily, and other times, charm simply wont stick... period.

Anyone know if these guys happen to be charm resistant in some manner?

Fenrir server

Guardien - BST/WHM
Anagorith - BST/WHM
Me - WHM/BLM

Did it twice only because I forgot to get my **** orb...DOH!!! It was a good experience though.

Here's the method we used:

Soon as we entered the battle ground, I cast buffs.

Then, one of the BST's charms one furie. Once that's done, the other BST charms the other furie.

Both furies are now attacking CocaCola (hey, it's just easier for me to remember his name that way, ok).

As the WHM, the hardest part of my job was keeping both BST's healed and removing poison - which the bat really likes to cast as a ga spell.

First time we did it, everything went like clockwork - I don't remember the time it took.

Second time, the younger BST had a little trouble charming his furie. So, hate control became an issue as I kept getting hit and had to cure myself and them. I ran out of MP and had to rest while they both dealt with the furies alone. They both managed to tame the furies and beat cola.

Then, it was only a matter of having the furies fight each other till only one was left. I think Guardien then used his 2hour and waxed the final furie.

Astral drop was 1/2. Other drops included a scroll of Deodorize, bat fang, and some other non-important stuff I think.

Planning on doing this one again soon.

Here's a Good Battle Plan I think: BST/WHM WHM/BLM, WAR/MNK.Have the BST Charm a Furie and send at the other Furie til one dies as this is happening Have the WAR and the BST attack the Colo-Colo.WHen one of the furies dies Charm the other one unless yours wins.Send it after the colo-colo You can then sit back rest heal.Until the Furie dies Then attack the Colo-Colo until it's dead.This is a very easy way to win if you can get the Flow.Whelp Later On.

We have tried to kill it today, twice.
BLM/WHM, SMN/WHM and NIN/WAR.
First time only the 2 of us went in, lag and the ninja staid out. Got killed really fast.
Second time we attacked each a bat, Ninja had colo-colo, we had the furies. Mine almost died, but i was mostly concentrating in curring the smn.
BIG MISTAKE.
I think THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SOLO cos you're the same lv or less than the mobs and that's really ****, even for 3 like us!
Well, we got killed again (And all leveled down!!!).
Great experience. My first BCNM. Hahaha.

Your smn coudlnt have been that great i know personally this can be solo'd i done it to get one of my astrals and sold another got rid of my other one and a ether ring to get a rabbit charm for my thf so ill be back to this place if i remember correctly i used about 6 ethers 2 yags and a regen food but to be honest it escapes me which one i used at the moment, never once did i cure (i took death over curing myself) curing yourself just gives you that much extra hate them bats need to turn the head to you then the avatar also becareful of the meds surprisngly they draw quite a bit of hate, a half way dead carby who had to of have decent hate at the time or just missed once to many that time around, i pulled hate from him by using 1 yag drink and 2 ethers just to give my mp that extra boost it needed. Anyways very soloable by smns and bst alike ^^ have fun

Soloed this today as BST/BLM. Used Tuna Sushi for extra CHR and 17 Hi Potions. Used enfeebling magic on non 2hr'd Furies also Pet food Zeta Rewarded my 2hr'd Furies to finish off Colo and they took 2nd Furies way down before they died. No ring drop but Thunder Spirit Pact dropped so I came out about 30K ahead.

That's completr BS, i soloed it, all you need is to go in prepared.

20BST/10WHM I take 10 Hi pots, use a yag drink, a pamama au lait (sp) and a tav taco, i tank all 3 using hi pots till i can charm one of the furies, 2hr and set it against colo, then start to work on the other bat, my pet hasnt ever come uncharmed after 2hr, by the time colo kills my 2hred bats hes pretty much dead, same as the other furies, i try a charm on the furies..if i get em i use em to finish colo, if not i finish em both off anyway by just using all the hi pots, its simple if you go prepared, its simple.

I did this bcnm with some buddies of mine on shiva server. we were 19 bst/pld, 20 bst/whm, 20 bst/whm. it was too easy, 2 ppl charm the furies and attack colo, each bst 2 hr once a fight for three fights, one bst 2 hr every fight, then once cola is dead have the furie that has been charmed with 2 hr fight the other bat, but have it heel before the other bat is dead, so the 2 nd not charmed bat kills your charmed 2 hr furie, then kill the remaining furie after your charmed bat has died. we set the record at less than 5 or 6 mins i think, it was a couple months agao :) got a thunder pact first time, astral second, and a platoon spear (only thing worth anything ><) made 340k a piece over all :) hope that helps

is it possible to kill colo-colo with 2 bst/war and 1 whm/blm.
I was thinking probably making the 2 furies attack colo and then once he is able to kill them both he would be pretty low where the 2 bst can just attack him and take him out as the whm heals.

This BCNM is always easy if you just let BST 2h
just did it with
WHM/BLM
BST/NIN
RNG/WAR (me)

get 1 of the furys and use familiar, let it attack the Colo-Colo and kill the other one
when the pet goes down just hit the Colo-Colo with everything (didnt use 2h tho)

we tried again right away and we died, without the pet it's kinda hard to do it, we were halfway the first fury when pet turned on BST and we got killed (they went after WHM first so we died right after WHM died)

And we only got the thunder pact
but got ring on another run today with me as WHM

BCNM20
# Jun 06 2005 at 10:41 AM Rating: Decent
I think the best ways to do BCNM20 is either have a smn with avatars (can solo it sometimes) or have two BSTs and a mage. i think red mage or white mage would be best. the two bst charm the furies then the mage cures them up everyone rests then they get uncharmed so just do the same thing over again. Mage should stay far back though. Ive done this twice and worked out well but i didnt get very good drops. my friend who is a bst has done it 27 times without dying and the mage has only died once becuase he wasnt paying attention uhh you might have a problem with the charmed furies at the end ive never gone above the time limit thing with them so i dont know what to do



Thanks Frylock and Ovid

all you need is the right combination...lol soo easy...used smn/whm, smn/whm, and thf/war. thf voked and smn/whm's healed a bit and used their 2hrs, the 2hrs combined killed fury and set colo on the smns, and thf(me) came up and did a SA. whole fight lasted about 45 seconds-1 minute and it was a suicidal one, the smns had about 30 hp left and i had about 50. still, it was easy.

No there isn't any way possible to solo this bcnm. Even if someone tries to tell it is don't try it trust me. I had a hard enough time doing it with bst/whm bst/whm and a smn/whm. Good Luck

I fought Colo Colo today with two LS friends and we severely kicked its ***. I'd considered being WHM or RDM to heal/buff/debuff etc but instead chose to go in with my DRG.

Our party was this:
1xPLD
2xDRG
all with WAR sub so we could share voking when PLD got low on life. We made sure we took a good few hi/x-potions so we could heal ourselves.

Our strategy, after buffing with food, was to all target Colo first, then all target one furies together, then finish off the last one. It worked out pretty well. PLD used Invincible to keep hate and save momentarily on potions and we finished the fight with most of our medicine untouched.

I'm putting this out there to encourage anyone who doesn't have a BST or SMN to hand that a strong melee offensive will also work equally well against Colo if you all target the same thing. (I'm also a little proud because this was only my second BCNM and we got the new record for the fight on Fenrir with 4:30. I'm sure it'll be beaten really soon tho ^^)

My only gripe is that we didn't get a good drop afterwards (lol). Ah well, will try again another day...

This BCNM is cake. Nailz, Fusulu and myself hold the clear time on siren. We have recieved 2 astral rings and 2 thunder spirit pacts. Along with a bunch of other junk we didnt need nor want. Our set up was as follows BST/BRD BST/WAR and SMN/WHM. Both us BST's had +15 CHR w/o monster signa and charms rarely failed. If anyone wants to see how its done just /tell Viktor on siren and we'll show ya =P

The setups involving the WHM could work if your whm brings in some Yagudo drinks and/or ethers. It looks like setups 1, 2, and 3 ended in death when the whm ran out of mp and had to 2-hr.

BST/WHM
WHM/BLM
any melee dd (drg/war is best, for drg are best dd pre 30)

Bst charms and familiars a fury, sends it after colo, melee kills other fury, then we wait till colo is done killing the fury, then we kill colo ^^

Uhh.. I don't know.. I think RNG/WAR would be the best DD at pretty much any lvl.. I think a properly equiped RNG/WAR could solo Colo-Colo much easier and kill him much quicker than a DRG/anything ever could.

Now that said.. I don't think a DRG would be a bad choice or anything.. I think it could be done and fairly easily with pretty much any DD .. but.. I think a RNG/WAR would be your best choice.

lol, you're absolutely right. A ranger is unquestionably the best single DD in the game, this is coming from a blm with great pride in the fact that he can consistently out damage any other class i've ever partied with. That having been said, there is a reason ranger is the best DD, they PAY for it.

I would also agree that drgs are vastly underrated. On pandemonium, they are NEVER invited to parties, though this is most likely due to the fact that most people who play drg are morons and don't know how to do it correctly.

Me and my buddies do this twice a day, most days... Hands down easy! I have a LS for it in which I have 2 static BCNM parties so I can do it more often. Basically one setup is SMN/WHM<me> SMN/WHM PLD/WAR, in which we easily broke the record with on Phoenix server, at around 2 minutes and 5 seconds. PLD runs in, vokes Colo-Colo, wait for all bats to attack him, me and other SMN have both Garudas out, 2 hour Aerial Blast on them all, PLD uses invincible or Hi pots, me and other SMN use Ether+Yag Drink - one of us uses Aerial Blast again, all dead! :)

Other setup is DRK/WAR<me> WHM/BLM BST/WHM. Me, DRK, runs in, solos Colo-Colo, WHM constantly curing me and bst if needed, BST also cures himself. BST charms one of the furies, if it fails, he uses 2hr. Furies kill eachother while BST rests, if BSTs furies is still alive, he waits till I have killed Colo-Colo, or he charms the others and does the same, then we all rest to full, BST leaves the battlefield, I finish the Furies off. Also, hands down easy! (Astrals almost everytime ^^-b)

non-BST pt

Would it be possible to do this one without a BST? I was thinking a BLM/WHM, a tank, and a melee DD. Have the BLM sleep Colo, then take out the other two bats while the BLM heals and continues to sleep Colo, then turn our attention to Colo when the Furies are gone. Would this work? We're not interested in setting the record, only in getting the drops.

A BRD might be able to lullaby it, I have seen lullaby work many times on dark creatures.
