Fought this guy yesturday after kickin Promy-Vahzls *** with some LS mates.
6 of us [nin, thf, pld, whm, blm, and sam(me)] beat it fairly easily, nin took it to the face at about 30%, the rest of us used a couple 2hrs and took it down. Dropped 2 memospheres but no recollection (>.<) Oh well, was only the crappy bow anyways.

This is true, but it casts -ga II not -gaI. I read that post and was like "don't worry too much about stunning, it's only -ga I." Thundaga II stings quite a bit at lvl 50 (o_-)

The two hour animation is not manafont, since Deviator will only cast one spell per animation.

Basically he changes his elemental affinity, then casts the -ga I spell of that element. Which one he cast is the element he'll start absorbing at that point.

Fought him twice now. Took him out the first time with 9, fairly easy fight, no deaths, just took a while. Dropped 3 memospheres, no recollection.

Fought with 12 the next time, had a lot more trouble, and had a tank go down. Seems therefore to have a possible range of levels. Dropped 2 memospheres and the recollection this time.
