We just killed this thing with our ls: 11 members, lowest 55 (me), most 75. It killed only one guy, and spawned 2 monions. We killed it in 14 minutes, limit is 15. It dropped a kind of cloth (edit - it was a Galateia), and a Hagun (level 72 great katana). The Hagun goes 5.5 mil on Ramuh ^^

Not exactly sure on the names but something like this:

Mandibular bite - single target TP move, Medium-high damage.
Sandblast - AOE blind. (bring eye drops)
Sandpit - burrows into ground. Causes bind status effect on person with hate.

-when you spawn the NM (by running over it), it will hit you pretty hard. The decoys also hit fairly hard upon emerging. Becareful, If your not a tank, they can take you down to the red extremely fast. He is also immune to stun. The decoys can be slept and grav, but build resistance up fairly fast. Pray that you dont pop all the possible decoys; otherwise its a fairly easy fight.
