Been checking up on this guy, seeing he should be around level 40, I gave it a go as a BLU/RDM level 55. Ouch, he did hundred fists several times, paused for a breath, and started pounding again; also did a few Shoulder Tackles especially towards the end, lol (seemed to have those ready very fast). I was never really worried but had my Tactics Pearl ready and poped my healer NPC halfway since I was in a hurry. A lot of HP so I used my spells mostly for skillchains, debuffs and a few head butts to stop him up a bit.
And the pumps I will use for some jobs 35 to 37 one day and maybe levelcap-things, but for now my mithra mannequin will have them on (hope they match her santa suit).

This NM was a lot of fun, he's kind of a fat old cartoon orc. He even pauses to catch his breath halfway throught the fight. As a BST72, I just let Courier Carrie beat him up (250dmg per hit). When he used Hundred Fists, it didn't even break through my /WHM Stoneskin.

I love the mannequin pumps, so useful for level cap events for either of my mains, or for any low to mid level mage job. They're great.

Iseria and Lutia in one topic? How cute!

Anyway, did this out of sheer boredom, piece of cake.
I decided to spend a night here, drinking to the unnamed heroes of a forgotten time.

"You are overwhelmed by the putrid stench of decay!" - then this guy spawns, he's just hilarious. I totally wiped the floor with him as NIN75/WHM37

He uses Hundred Fists multiple times, but it ended up in Hundred Paralyzes. "Bullheaded Growvez pauses to catch his breath." - Then he uses 3 Shoulder Tackles.

I didnt even bother recasting Utsusemi because he already had problems getting through stoneskin. XD

He's old, he smells, super-fun fight. Recommended!

Who was it that said... "If you ever meet a girl named Kristal at a dance joint, odds are it's her hooker name..." *stares at screenshot" Is Kristal a hooker?
Perhaps the 'Dark Side Of The Moon' defined the 70's in so many ways but "Us and Them" captured a moment of melancholy realization in a timeless way. Long live the 70's!!!

I've never been knocked back so much in my life, what a blast. I just fought him and he was of course a piece of cake at 74. I just took my time and didn't go all out. This is a fun NM.
Fun battle

Just got done fighting it with my THF50/NIN25. Very difficult at this level. I had to 2hr on Hundred Fists....but he did it again, so I kited him around with flee until it wore off. I was basically spamming bloody bolts the entire battle. It's do-able, but not a guaranteed win at this level, you'll definitely need evasion gear and capped Marksmanship. It was a lot of fun!

Was able to duo as Taru THF46/NIN23 and RDM46/NIN23. THF tanked it and used bloody bolts too. Gravitied him during 2 hour, however right before 2nd 2 hour he used Slam Dunk and bound THF so watch out for that! He was pretty easy otherwise.

I like how he emotes "Bullheaded Grosvez pauses to catch his breath.", that's new for a mob and a cute addition.

Soloed this as 66THF/NIN. Was quite the ego boost, a long fight due to his sheer HP, but fun. He used hundred fists twice and missed like 95% of his attacks therein, he also missed most of his shoulder tackle spam moves. Some guys camping Orctrap start wandering over, so I figure I had better do something flashy. I shot a few bloodies to recover the couple hundred he had managed to nick off of me and finished him with a 1284 Shark Bite. XD

Easily solo'd him as a 55smn/whm, just let your avatar take all the dammage, maybe pop a yag drink, and you'll be fine.

I had to 2hour only because my friend, 30war, came to watch and got aggro'd by 3 shriekers mid-fight... Inferno did 1132 dammage to him and killed everything in the area. @.@

Very fun fight and an excelent reward. ^^ This guy makes me feel much better about all the other orcs that have killed me in Davoi. ^^; ~Aet

Did him as a 62 RDM... twice.. I had such a laugh the first time that I zoned and did him again.. this NM is hilarious.

He'll only break through Phalanx on criticals, but he was missing me so many times, I removed Protect III and let him suicide on my Blaze Spikes :)

I kill it as a 59SMN/29WHM. I cast stoneskin, blink, Protect II and shell before. I cast Carby and I made him pop. Carby attack it. I was doing meteorite when I can. Sometimes he hit me, I don't know how i go hate but anyway, I recast Stoneskin and blink when it goes away. And he use his 2hr. Then I was laughting out loud! It was like...

Bullheaded Grosvez misses Carbuncle.

Anyway you know what I mean^^

In all the fight, he hit me for about 50 hp and it cost all my mp tho to kill it. I said it easy for 60+. Depend on job you have i think soloing it at 55 is easy too. Took me 3-5 minutes to kill. There is only mushroom there so no link. But they aggro if you heal near them.

And thats about it. Good luck.

This guy was a pushover as a 63 red mage. I put up stone skin and phalanx as well as blazed spikes. I had to recast stoneskin and phalanx once each.

The funny part was, after I got it down to 1/2 HP, it 2 houred and did Hundred Fists. Well, my stoneskin stayed up and every punch it hit me for took away 15 HP from himself. He basically beat himself up trying to kill me. He dropped his own HP down to 0 much faster than I could have myself after he 2 houred. I even put my sword away while I watched and laughed.

I ended down 20 HP and 150 MP from when I started the battle.
Don't hate me because I'm fabulous. Hate me because I'm a better than you.

i would guess his level was 40ish. did it as a 70 blm and was total overkill.

on the wrong job hundred fists could be trouble but not likely. he hit a 70 sam for 3 dmg/punch with hundred fists.

anyone 50+ should have no problem.
