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.

I have killed Colo many times and always go with the same party setup...BST/WHM (me), BST/WHM and WHM/BLM...if you die in that party setup it's either bad luck or poor play.

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.

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


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.
