Please tell me this is either for a CoP quest or the nm drops more stuff than dark crystals and jaws seeing you need 2 HQ jaws to make the trap that spaws this.

If that's all it drops and it's not a quest or mission why would someone do.

If it is for a quest/mission it should be put on here.

It spawns another NM called alastor Antlion that drops some nice boots for whm/blm/smn that has fast cast bonus.

Revelation did a run for these pumps on 09-05, there were a couple of us who had farmed jaws earlier in the week for the traps. Of course we staretd late and the melee all got sidetracked going "OMG IT'S XOLOTL LET'S KEEL IT!11!11!" so we had to do that first--p But eventually the run was underway.

The melee totally wiped the Feeler antlion out on the first run before it had the chance to pop anything, with many cries afterwards of "omg I thought it would be harder." So just have the NIN(s) melee it to give it TP -.-; We had a BST there as well, so he had his antlion attack it as well.

The other runs went relatively nicely, I think we had one wipe out of four or five runs due to the fact that one run the Feeler was popping out Executioners way too quickly and we had about three of them up and the NM at the same time. The NM Alastor itself isn't too hard; the added effect: petrify to its normal attacks is an annoyance but if you have an attentive WHM(s) it's not bad. I expected Breakga to be spammed alot more than it was.

On a BRD note -- Cappricio worked EXTREMELY well for me in resisting or helping resist petrify, so if you have a BRD in your party/parties, you might wan'na ask them to throw that up just in case.

On my run personally the Alastor was the very first thing that the Feeler summoned, but other runs it took three or four; I think one took six. We all had NQ traps, so.

Cross-posted a bit.

This NM is spawned by trading an Antlion Trap to a ??? in Attowah Chasm. When it spawns it will summon an Executor Antlion OR the NM Alastor Antlion when it gets TP. THe summoning move is Sand Pit (or something along that line). Do not kill the Feeler until it summons the NM, the feeler does NOT drop rostrum pumps. It is the Alastor antlion that does. This requires an alliance of 75s, and it can take a LOT of Executioners before it finally summons the NM. One fight we had to kill 34 executioners before alastor finally popped. GL

Edit: Out of 10+ spawns everyone with an antlion trap got a drop off of the Alastor Antlion. The HQ traps simply seem to make him pop faster. Drop rate on all traps looks to be 100%

My LS just did this NM today. for 1, I recomind not killing it at the pop ???. We did one that way and it was less then favorfull.
IF you have more then 18 people. i think like a full aliance of 18 and a full party of 6 for adds then at the ??? is fine.

what my LS did was killed the possable links before we pop it then pull it to the cave that you enter from. from there we had everyone stand back and have a ninja tank him. have 1 whm with the NIN because when it SMNs the posable NM from the ground it does direct damage to the nin and takes down all shadows.
Also a WHM out of party is very helpful inceasue it does its AoE petrify they will not get hit by it and be able to fix it.

Once the Feeler SMNs the NM have 2 PLDs and a WHM kite it and everyone kills the Feeler. Once the feeler is dead you can kite the NM in the big area outside of the cave very easly. nothing will arggo 75s there that i saw.

I suggest 3-4 BLM and atlest 3-4 whms. BLM is really the key to damage on this NM. Once we got down to the NM alone we had 3-4 PLDs kite and then got TP off of mobs around and did Darkness/light SC. this mob has Stone Skiin up alot so trying to hit him does 0 damage. so we just SC and MB him.

Also his hits sometimes have the added effect petrify so a whm needs to kite with the PLDs.

When it Stonaga III you should really try to get out of the way, its not a one hit kill cast but it hit me for about 800 with a jelly ring on.

For the most part, the NM pops in 2-3 SMNs off the feeler but, if it stats to be 5,6,7,8 and no NM and MP is getting low if you kite the feeler in the open area outise of the cave as long as you keep him moving he will not SMN anonther pop. If you need to do this you can rest MP and get back to full and then go again.

I hope this is helpfull as its all i learned from the 5 my LS did.

If Breakga is anything like it is in Dynamis, then it is AOE petrify. Scorpions in Dynamis-Bastok perform Breakga.

Booyah, My LS is immortalized in this screenshot!

This is a pretty tough fight, our ls had to learn through trial and error, we wound up wiping a few times too... We now have a happy blm wearing Rostrum Pumps ^^

I'm too sneaky to say much about this fight other than this: Breakga totally sucks...
