Tanked/killed this guy as RDM/BLM for CoP static. With Phalanx, I'd say he hits for about 50 a pop, but Paralyze sticks on him HARD. Also, if you need to recast Stoneskin (or any buff) he is easily bound, giving you the time to run out of range and cast.

Worst part is when he calls for Bugbby's help. Our PLD does a fantastic job but just couldn't keep the bugbear's attention, had a little extra damage coming in for a few seconds before he moved on.

Edit: Forgot to add...this guy uses your standard Moblin attacks (Crispy Candle, Paralysis Shower, Frypan) but also goes with the old Goblin favorite, Bomb Toss. It should be noted that he is NOT immune to blowing himself up- mine killed itself off at 1/3 when it went for the Toss.
