Pretty easy for a 75BRD/37NIN. I kept shadows up and would sometimes Shadowstitch him to bind him and run away to keep fresh songs and shadows up. Took about 10 or 15 minutes. Not too bad. Didn't Requiem him just in case I needed to zone. He hit me once when shadows were down with Cross Counter for nearly 500 damage.

I was soloing on BST when I saw this guy. I sent a pet after it and when I realized I was gonna die I zoned. I ran to Norg and switched to my 75 THF. Everything was going well until his first Cross Counter did me 522 dmg killing me. Don't underestimate this guy because cross counter hurts especially if you a tarutaru. Good thing my LS buddy Departure came to raise me. He then proceeded to kite it to death naked on his rdm. Thanks buddy!

I accidently clicked on the ??? for this one day a while back and got killed, so today I was in there for another quest and decided it was time for some revenge. Pretty tough fight but whooped it's *** as as 70 Drk/Sam. I freakin love Seigan, would have been squished without it. The only rough bit is Cross Attack, hit me for over 700 damage when Third Eye was down. I stunned the ******* then 2 houred to get some health back, after that it wasn't too bad.

I got really lucky and just bairly got Third Eye up for a second Cross Attack. Then it was just a waiting game till I had TP to finish him off. He did take alot of damage though, 3 Guillotines and my Souleater Blood Weapon along with quite a few swings, I'd say he has around 5k HP or so.

So im running thru SSG with wifey's char (mithra 75rdm/nin) doing sahagin key quest for her (she hates SSG) and i see the ????.

Me: *pokes the ????*
????: "INTENSZ DREADZ UPON jOO fOO!!11!"
Me: "Oh &%$#"
I hit it with sleep II and get my crap together. I had around 50% mp (270ish) so i rested a tick. Linkshell had no clue what lvl it was, but a 75 nin said he had solo'd easily. It woke up when I had ~350 MP, and I buffed and went to work.

1st off, Cross Reaper sux ***..It ate thru fresh stoneskin and piled on 150-300 xtra dmg with prot IV and phalanx. I was hitting around 75+ 18 addt. effect from enblizzard with each sword. I took maybe 4 cross reapers, one taking me down to 300 hp w/no shadows O.o

After ~5 min, i was almost dead, and i was outta MP...I was waiting for a few more clicks of refresh so I could convert+cure III at least, but it was so low i tried to just kill it off. I won with 400 hp and 51 MP. Waay too close considering there were two lvl 50ish bst watching, waitin to /lol @ a dead 75 rdm!

But i won, and got this halfway decent (although cheap) shield to show for it. If you plan to fight this, have a way to absorb 500-900dmg TP attacks or it could get ugly.

-peace

I soloed this NM easily as a BST60/WHM.
Went down and grabbed myself a VT Mindgazer, and 2houred it. Then went back up, buffed with SS and blink, popped the NM and sent pet on it. At first I was hanging back because I thought I'd have to pet swap at least a few times to finish it off, but in the end my one pet easily finished it off.

I actually attempted this first at BST55, but I died when it was down to about 30% HP when, during a pet swap I got hit with AE, sneak wore, and I got agroed by about 4 DC sahagin >.>

Revenge is very sweet.

I came prepared... i am a lvl 66 thf/nin... came with 3 X Potions, ate sole sushi, used a scroll or reraise, got Protect and Shell IV from a PLD fishing nearby wich helped alot... had sleep bolts but i only used bloody bolts... i didnt call my npc, and i built up full TP before the fight. I used Dancing Edge at the begining of fight and at about 86% TP it used Cross Attack for the first time, and i guess i only had one shadow up it did 700 damage, and was left with about 350hp... it has bad accuracy so keeping shadows up wasnt that hard, but i used a X potion then and kept spaming bloody bolts, Dancing Edge, and kept shadows up... i was around 700-900 HP the rest of the figth untill it was down to about 5%hp and went alittle nuts, and got me down to 400 HP by using Maelstrom followed by Cross Attack, at wich point i decided to use Perfect Dodge cuz losing at that point would just suck... killed it 15 seconds later... used all my X potions and about 40 bloody bolts. Just wanted to share incase anyone was thinking about soloing it. It was a fun fight.

Wanted the shield for skill ups and went to the AH to buy. As I usually do I check how to get things the non-AH way and saw the quest. It looked fun/challenging and thats why we play the game right...

Round 1) Going ok, made the mistake of using blink too much and my MP was falling faster than I would have liked. Didn't matter too much tho as it hit through my stoneskin with Cross Attack to put me to 400-something HP then hit another one more or less straight after to a tone of 508... Game Over.

Round 2) Don't you just love RR3... Started again after unweakened and healed. Played the Blink card a lot less letting my Stoneskin take more of a battering. Was working well as my MP was matching his HP which is all us whms really need. usual SS/Blink routine was keeping my hp 900+. One or 2 Cross Attack got through making me yellow but no biggy till towards the end of the fight when a superb Cross Attack put me to 47 hp, CV+ Regen 3 put me back to full quickish but my MP took a knock. The next Cross Attack put me in orange so I used Benediction. Got tp to 100+ and Hexa Strike ended him with 13MP. Was great fun.

It's rare you get fights with close calls in my experience and its always fun to test your skills in matches that you might not be the favourite in.

I was in here killing Sahagin for Eastern Gems when I came across the ???. Being the dumbass that I am a gave it a little poke. I saw the message about a feeling of dread and remembered the quest. I knew there was no way in **** a 66drk/23thf could take it so I ran like a little girl for norg, almost made it too. Luckily a buddy was nearby and gave me a raise.

SAME HERE!! LOL

I was killing spring for mermaid body part. Came across this ??? and clicked on it. Thinking what the **** ..' ar here is a ???' Somehow body turned numb and an blue NM popped. I had no trouble with it at all .. UNTIL it used it special move which turned me HP instantly into red. I was scared like a little girl ..used 2 hrs and drain.. thinking I should be ok. And then it just used its move once again. With 58 Hp left .. I died in a few seconds. I was so closed killing it .. think it has only 1% of HP left..dammit!

You'd think after incidents across Vanadiel I would have learned one thing during my game life.. Do.. Not.. Touch.. Random.. ???... I was 60BLU/WHM heading to the silver engraving room to try to learn Hydro Shot. Saw the ??? not to far from the zone. Ho-ho? What's this? The only ??? I know of is that Undying Pledge quest with that really scary NM, but that's further in right? I'll just poke it, prolly get Nothing out of the ordinary message. Instead: Your body goes numb with dread! (It really did too as I immediately realized what was about to happen!) It spawned in all its blue glory. I had just gotten through fighting Anemones nearby for Bad Breath, so I coincidentally had Prot 2 and a Tavnazian Taco up, and was wearing an Earth staff. I quickly cast Cocoon, and watched my pretty DEF soar to a respectable 536. Started running like crazy to the zone, then I realized he was only hitting me for 20 dmg. I figured 'This guy's a pushover, the malboros were hitting me harder'. Swapped out to Sword and shield (Varlet Targe, Blu gets the shaft on shields) and turned to engage in mortal struggle. Started chipping away for about 50 dmg a hit, preparing for my lovely Red Lotus Blade => Dimensional Death => Fusion. Got him to 90%, I had 60% TP. He chooses Cross Attack as his first TP move.. 807.. 60 Taru BLU/WHM 1 shot from 100%. Must.. Touch... ??? /cry /delevel

Update! A rdm/nin was strolling through the area, did same thing I did, touched for the **** of it. Barely won, and gave me a raise with 2 minutes left to spare! Got my lvl back! TY!

Agreed hehe I made that mistake today, though it caught me totally unprepared (thf 65/nin32) didn't have shadows, or anything for that matter, **** I even had an RR scroll to use in case ... lol yeah lets just say the thing didn't drop a water crystal but sure as **** droped me, worst of all was ... that cross attack did 1083 dmg to me, and my max hp is 1083 >_>

Solo'd as 75DRG/WHM. Had Stoneskin, Blink, ProtectII, ShellII and Reraise (:p) up just in case. He hit me for a good 700-800 with his first Cross Attack then I used my wyvern to heal myself. After a couple hits, wyvern took hate then wyvern gets hit for about 700-800 cross attack and to my surprise is still alive. Desperately tried to get hate back but as /whm it's not easy. Finally after a few more hits I get hate back and wham another bloody cross attack. Took me down to about 100 or so hp but I didn't panic through the whole fight and I ended up taking him down. Don't underestimate this NM if you try to solo it. It's normal attacks and Whirlwind are not a huge problem but Cross Attack kills.

Soloed as THF65 by the skin of my teeth. He was missing most of his attacks, but his AoE attacks would strip my shadows leaving me open for Cross Attack, which did 585 damage each hit. Thank god for Perfect Dodge, Utsusemi, Evasion, Bloody Bolts, and for eating sushi beforehand (HP boost). Finished fight with 5 HP left.

One fine day, I was taking a little stroll through Sea Serpent's Grotto to get to Norg, took a little turn to check out the place a bit since I've never actually explored it before.

I see an innocent little ???, and think hmm, what could this be? I touch it, and to my surprise, a Sea Monk spawns!!!

I was all like O.O and he was all like <~~~~~(^_^)~~~~~>
with all of his tentacles and whatnot. Then he slaps me around for about 60 damage a hit! Well, I think, oh this guy should be a breeze, I'm subbing WHM so if things get rough, I'll just Divine Seal a cure on myself. So I start chippin' away at him for about 140 damage a whack. then.. out of nowhere..

WHACK!!!!

The Glyryvilu uses Cross Attack. Tiroth takes 952 damage.
Tiroth is defeated by the Glyryvilu.
Tiroth falls to level 59.

Soloed this mob as 67nin/33war. It couldn't touch me, except -once-. In that one Cross Attack, it hit me for 1019 damage, and was toward the end of the fight, so I think as its health drops, it gets stronger, considering it hit a monk only one lvl higher than me for 200 at the beginning of the fight. It's an easy solo for nin, especially using enfeebs, but keep 2 shadows up at all times, otherwise he'll hurt you pretty bad on cross attack XD. I ended that fight with 94/1152 because of just one hit that landed on me =P
