We went with one Oil Spill BST, a WHM, and me on PUP with sharpshot out. Staying out of AoE range, it was pretty easy, especially with the new reward timer. Sharpshot does great damage on this, and doesn't take hate from the spill. All and all it went pretty well.

I fought this nm 2 times and am 1/1. Both times farming subligar. You do have to be careful, if she does her aoe, it will wipe the mages out regardless of stoneskin or not. The first time we failed really, really bad. >< but I came back and with a party of 6 and we killed her, only one person, a nin/war survived. So yeah, she can be pretty rough, but hey, i got my fomor tunic and i wear it at level 70 aroung town. I hope this helps.

Has anyone confirmed her spawn time? Please respond.


Why do you even want to bother. Crappy drop. My LS did the CoP mission here and killed formors for the key and this thing pops 5 minutes later. I come back here about two weeks later to get my gaudy harness, and you know what, it was still there. The drops are not worth the trouble of killing it.

This is a sweet body piece for BLU, so I hardly would call the drop crappy. Nice alternative for those who don't have access to a Voyager Sallet. Sallet is 41, so definitely worth holding onto for 40 cap stuff.

A fair warning. Me and my BST friend Dustytaru decided to come kill Eba for the **** of it. Dual Oil Spills, would be cake. The problem is if you decide to mele her. She can wipe a whole alliance with just one blow, and thats proven twice by me. First time, when I was doing Minotaur, we fought Eba. 16 ppl bit the dust when she did Grim Halo. Second time, she did Grim Halo on me and Dusty this last time, it hit me for 543. Word of advice: If you going to fight her, keep your mages away, and if you are BST, keep yourself away and let your pet do the work.

Actually, I over heard my LS members saying that Eba can spawn in multiple places. I dont think thats possible however. I do think that Mahisha and Eba pop off of each other, kinda how Leech King and Argus pop off of each other. If someone can confirm this or show that both mobs can be up at same time, that would be very helpful.

Well, I have confirmed that the Leech King / Argus Thing is not true. It's its own indepent NM. But I Believe that Eba repops 18-36 hours. Due to the fact that she popped about 29 hours after I killed her. (No I did not sit there the entire 29 hours I simple let computer on and Eba was never in my Log) I also got drop when I killed her this time. That's makes me 2/3 so I'm guessing the drop rate is pretty high though it was rather frustrating when she didnt drop the 2nd time I killed her. (Congratulations to Smooth for getting the 1st drop. I myself got the second drop :D)

We killed it with 4 people in 12 minutes. Nin/war, War/nin, Whm/Blm, Whm/Blm. We never took much damage although I did die right at the end due to carelessness. The tunica dropped and went to Knighmayor, second person on the server to get it.

Decieded to take her out last night while farming subligar.

Had THF/NIN(me) THF/NIN, MNK/WAR, NIN/WAR WHM/SMN, SMN/WHM and a SAM/WAR that was afk.

Pretty easy fight as long as mages stand back and everyone keeps shadows up. I would get shadows up then Sneak Attack + Viper Bite to get hate, then other THF would SATA Viper Bite back onto NIN.
NIN ended up dying with Eba at around 20% so I Sneak Attack + Viper Bite to take hate, 2 hour, and MNK ran over to help kill.
Mages got hate with Eba at about 3% health, so we ran over and got finishing blow.

1/1 on the drop
We got her :D

This NM was hanging out in the "Fomor Room" just nearby the Stegataur bridge-like area. We had a party of 4 and then we invited a BST/WHM to help out. This is a very fun fight. We lost, but almost had it. I suppose if my Utsusemi would have been interrupted one time less we could have taken it. My fault.

However, we do think that this is a Dark Knight mob from the spells it was casting and the weapon it used.

Probably level 46-48 based on the amount of time it took to move it's life down. Too bad it's in a level capped area... :(

this NM is easy...with 2 NIN tank, 2 RNG, and 1 rdm. we won easy..

also, we took out the BAT NM and Mashi(sp) with this setup...so all i can say is if you have 2 ninja tanks and dd(s) and mage(s)..you can win all 3 NM in there.

we got tunic, katana, claw, and mask all in 1 nite. not to mention..3 thf sublingar, 2 ninja,1 brd/bst, pld, and alot of exp... =)

Have tanked Eba twice so far.

Once with 11 members fighting, got drop. The second time with 4 LS members, got drop.

The first setup had too many jobs to list, but I will say we had a SAM 2 hour (Jani), which did help alot. The second Setup was NIN/WAR RNG/NIN THF/NIN and BST/WHM. I voked a VT slime for BST to charm and use familiar, and had BST pull Eba. Initial plan was to have the Slime fight solo, and we jump in after it dies, but trigger fingers got itchy and we jumped in shorty after a few swings. Having the BST two hour helped alot. I was dual tanking with the Slime. Slime died shortly after Eba was at 1/2 life. /Salute Slime

We ended up defeating it right after it's last Grim Halo which killed our BST (Gyfford). RNG(Renges) used Eagle Eye shot on my cue... I should have waited a bit longer... RNG pulled hate and it ran towards RNG, which was next to BST (No Shadows). Well we did have a THF (Whiteblaze) again, so I'm not sure if THI helped it drop, or if it's 100%, but I'm 2/2 on it atm.

We fought Eba last night while farming Subligar, we beat her with an alliance of 9. Alliance setup was NIN/WAR X 2, WAR/NIN X 2, WHM X 3, THF/NIN,and RNG/NIN. Honestly what saved everyone was the Ninja job.

She's a DRK so she swings slowly, her AoE is nasty, but as long as you have 3 shadows up they absorb the AoE damage. We were expecting to get owned (had all the WHM's put RR up) but she went down smoothly. NIN's dual tanked her, while everyone else just swung away. Only time anyone dropped into red was if she used AoE then attacked a NIN before they could recast shadows.

All /NIN just recast their shadows after she uses AoE. The THF was doing some nice damage with SATA Viper Bite. Dropped a few Dark Crystals and the Tunic.

Me and my Linkshell were in the Aquaducts for Subligar farming, and Eba popped as we were getting the BST in our party his subligar. Well, we obviously didn't wanna miss a chance at an NM drop, as we had just killed another NM in the zone and got the Vampire Claws, so we pull it. Out party setup was (I think) BST, PLD, WHM, BLM, RNG, WAR, in another party we had WAR and MNK allianced with us. So we pulled Eba and needless to say, we got owned badly. Her AoE move called Grim Halo dealt around 400+ damage to all melee's, and also to our WHM who had gotten slightly too close. Instant death for alot of us, having already suffered from her other deadly single hit WSs. All of a sudden I (PLD) looked at the health bar of the party, and almost everyone instantly hit 0, At that point I used Invincible, hoping to give our BLM and RNG enough time to nuke it dead, RNG uses Eagle Eye Shot for only 150 or so damage, and 30 seconds go by. Eba starts unleashing on me, I go down almost as fast as everyone else on Grim Halo. Needless to say everyone else was slaughtered without the PLD there to tank. Our WHM used Reraise after Eba returned to her spawn. Btw, if anyone doesn't know this already, Fomor DRKs hit harder than any other Fomor i've fought, and Eba happens to be a DRK. Well, we /sea for other people in the area, and it just so happens that there is another party farming subligars nearby us, so we enlist their aid. I'm not completely clear on their setup, but I think it was like any well balanced exp party setup. So now we try again, but this time everyone who has a useful 2 hour uses it at start, hoping to eliminate her ASAP. We had Hundred Fists, Mighty Strikes x2, Eagle Eye Shot, Meyiko Shiehui (or whatever, the SAM one) and another Invincible. Well, this time only 3 people died, out of i think 14, so not too bad. We ended up beating her and she dropped the Fomor Tunic. Sucks that she only drops one, for all the trouble put into killing her.

If anyone wanted to fight her for themselves, I would suggest going with at least 2 parties, maybe more, and be sure the parties have plenty of damage, good tanks, and lots of healing. And be prepared to 2 hour on her. Have fun if you decide to kill her, it was fun for me. :)

we had 12 people when we went to fight it. we weren't sure what to expect. So After we fully heal we get ready to go. So we pull it and totaly got slaughtered. After whm rerasies we fully heal again and start round 2. We finally killed her no drop though. Make sure mages stay out of her **** aoe. it is bad. I was a rng/nin and it went threw shadows and one shot killed me.

I was in Phomonia Aquaducts with a party of 10-12 members. Can't remember exactly how many, but we were a pretty mage-heavy group. I think it was about 4blm, 1rdm, 2thf, 2whm, a rng and 2drk. The party was able to easily take out the 3 fomor party for the blm subligar a few times, and also 3 fomor party for the rdm subligar three times. We decided to try take on Eba at the end of the night...We got slaughtered. We were close, she was almost dead. Low enough that when the whm reraised he cast Banish, thinking it would kill her. Needless to say, it didn't ^^

Fought her while LS was farming for Subligars about 2 weeks ago. Was already spawned in the room where BST, DRG, THF, and NIN spawn when we showed up. Nothing on Allakhazam, so we decided to save her for after we got subligars (Even tho I didn't get my BST/BRD one). Party makeup was:

BRD/WHM (me)
THF/NIN
WAR/NIN
PLD/???
WHM (lvl 25) someone to raise just in case

WE GOT OWNED. Did maybe 1/10 damage to her. Would guess you need a well-balanced group of 12 to take her down. WHM had re-raise ring/earring so we continued hunting subligars until 2 bat links killed us on BST fomor. Never got low-HP aggro even though we were fighting in tunnel right outside room.
Good Luck anyone who takes her out.
