Our setup:
War/Nin, War/Nin, Smn/Whm (me), Whm/Blm, Blm/Rdm, Rng/Nin.

This thing took us 3 attempts, gotta love reraise.

First attempt:

We go in, Warriors start taking in turns to tank, it Throat Stabs or whatever its called, wow, but we were ready for it so we recovered, after a while Carousel goes off and were kinda in trouble. Tanks go down soon after that and we all run around, Whm dies next (i think) and we decide its a lost cause, i run for the door and make it (cowardice i know, but im not stupid) fortunately the WHM had reraise on and we hadnt used our 2 hours.

Everyone waits to be kicked out and the whm reraises and then raises everyone. Rest for 10 mins.

Second attempt:
Slightly better prepeared, the idea was to run from throat stab, it doesnt work. We all get wasted again, one War hit their 2 hour and then promptly died. Mass wipeout, i run and live again (gotta love not bein a tank). Re-raise, raise everyone, prepare.

Third time lucky:
All in, buff up as normal, run in. Warriors survive slightly longer this time. One dies, i hit my 2 hour with Ramuh and deal big damage, Ramuh tanks until he dies, (about 5 hits) then the other Warrior gets stomped. I thought we were doomed as it was still on around 30% hp. Ranger Eagle Eye Shots it and its on under 20%. My second Blood Pact gets it down to around 5%. In this time the Ranger has taken a couple of throat stabs and is kiting on about 2 hp. My bloodpact is about to be ready when the ranger puts the final arrow in its coffin. Everyone was amazed.

Lessons learned:
War/Nin really has trouble tankig this guy.
Re-raise is sacred. And dont even think of standing up on the battlefield because youll waste it.
Ranger can magically kite while being on the verge of death.
If your doomed run for the door, save yourself some XP. But only if theres no hope, even the worst situations can turn round.
Good luck.

go in as 4 as the tank and a SMN forgot to pick up animus -.- its HP went down REALLY slowly, Fenrirs howling moon didnt even dint it. Worked out it was weak to Thunder so Ramuh was called out..2 Judgment bolts and its at 60% -.- Gravity and Bind worked well. I had previously taken it down as a 5 and its HP went down fast...usin gravity i had to kite it...at 50% we all had died...it took over 1Kdmg and was only just reachin 50%! we took on the boss and it went down faster..died at 10% because it just spammed AoE but this ENM actually seemed harder and tougher than the last time...idk if it was cos we were a 4 or wat...gonna try again next week.

WATCH OUT FOR IMPALEMENT! It took down the PLD's HP to 70 in one shot right at the beginning of the battle. I jammed in the Hysteroanima before he could get massacred -.-

Seethers aren't much a problem; died quick, only saw one. Didn't get the Promyvion Brume so I didn't really have any other problems :)
PT Setup: MNK< Me, PLD, RNG, BLMx2, WHM

Ours dropped a Malicious Vision, any ideas? O_o

It's always good to know what your doing before you do it. You trade the vision to Vennessa for the earring. You got a Ninjutsu Earring.

We went in after about 3 death's before even getting there expecting to die because we were all thinking the mob was about as hard as the Promyvion-Mea boss. Infact this idiot could be taking by 5 if you have a good party and perhaps a couple anima's.

Party setup:
MNK/WAR (used his 2 hour BEFORE the BCNM for somereason and screwed up drops)
WMH/BLM <---me
We had no anima's.

Well we went in and did all the buff's, then we did this:

WAR/NIN's alternated tanking
WHM(me) and SMN healed
RNG and MNK attacked, whenever a spawn-off came up they disengage and fought it.
at 1/4 life we all 2 hr'd.

Easy as hell fight, only thing you have to worry about is he uses Impalement and Carousel a lot at the end. He has low HP and our RNG even died before he 2hr'd and we still won.

5 minutes and something seconds, drops where craptactular but i leveled up ^^:

Burning Cluster (5K)
Startling Cluster (5K) -----> Prices of Valefor
Bitter Cluster (50K)

Happy ENM'ing

PT config:


Our sixth didn't have her key item.

The fight was interesting, still a win with all surviving. 3 hysteroanimas used. We still got tagged by Promyvion Brume part way through, making the end of the fight an interesting exercise in hate control.

By the end we had me throwing Curagas to keep the team alive, and Mandalorian, our RDM, was trying to hold hate and kite four Seethers at once. Trippy!

Attack data, if you aren't yet aware:

Material Fend - Evasion boost.

Brain Spike - Damage attack, one target.

Empty Thrash - High damage attack, one target.

Murk - AOE Slow + Gravity.

Promyvion Brume - AOE damage + poison + hate reset. Killer skill.

Impalement - Huge damage, single target. Damage can vary. I've seen it hit for 100, I've also seen 500.

Carousel - AOE damage attack, hits for several hundred vs. all. Carousel is a physical damage attack, so can be stopped with Psychoanima (intimidates physical) as well as Hysteroanima (shuts down special skills).

In addition, yes, he spawns Seethers. Hysteroanima does not stop Seether production. You can't stop it. Just deal. ^^
