55sam/rng and I started the fight with 40% HP left. I didn't know it would spawn a NM for this quest. I finished with about 30% HP left as I was using Seigan for Third Eye.

Easy stuff.

I just soled this guy as SMN44/WHM22 on the gilgamesh server. I summoned leviathan and the popped him. I immediately sicced leviathan on him and weakened him with a dia, paralyze and slow. I also cast aquaveil. By the time he took down the first leviathan he was below 50%. I resummoned (I took a bit of damage, but not much) and had leviathan finish him off. I killed him with 'Tidal Wave' but it wasn't needed. This guy is a wuss.

I was able to Solo this one as a 50DRG/WHM. I was down to about 30% health by the end. That was mostly because of the warmachine link that happened during the fight.

I had Protect and Regen up on me, and cast Paralyze, Slow, and Dia on Grukjuk to start the fight.

For all you PLD's wondering, this guy is easily solo-able at 50. I soloed him as a Hume M 51PLD/WAR and briefly got into yellow 3 times, each time remedied with a quick Cure III. As a previous poster said, be careful of links when fighting. With the exception of getting a link, 2 hour isn't necessary on this NM, you'll do fine.
Late, but meh

I popped this guy completely by mistake a while back when I was a level 50 dragoon. I didn't even realize he had popped until his ranged attack hit me, at which point i noticed that he had already shot and missed three times O_o;;
I engaged him and had absolutely no trouble, I was barely into yellow at the time I took him down. Don't worry about him =p

I accidently popped this guy last week. I had just finished promys figured i would explore. Well, as a 51 MNK he was fairly easy. But, when he popped it shocked me HEH when Hundred Fists was finished he was at 1/4 HP and ragin fists finished him off fairly easily.

Did this one today as lvl 50 blm.

Bind once freeze sleep II. 9 sleep II's and 4 Freezes killed him off. After 3rd freeze a Thunder II probably would've killed him off but, hey overnuke if you can lol!

He isnt that tough, just took him today as a 50thf/25rng. First half of the battle he shot at me and missed, I shot back for about 95-100 dmg. When he hit roughly half HP we started trading blows. When he fell I had little over 200 of 780 HP. Funny thing is I didnt know I was going to have to fight anything and freaked when I read "You sence and evil presence". Over all just make sure he doesnt link and if you can keep your distance and used ranged/magic until he comes to you should be easy.

Solo'd it as a 52 Bard/Whm. I used Soul Voice and it took roughly 15 minutes with my Paper knife (dont laugh). Used the standard sleep and heal between fighting spurts tactic.

This is a RNG type mob which will link with the orcs around the tower, so try to clean up first.

I will say it is a lvl 45-50 mob due that when my LS did it, lvl 65 war and 63 rdm didn't have a problems soloing, yet we needed to help the lvl 51 brd from being killed. Tower which has the ??? that makes it spawn is in the south corner. First tower to the right if you go out from the south entrance of Tavnazian Safehold.
