I was a RDM/WHM, and my friend was a DRG/WAR. As soon as we got in there, I used a Yagudo Drink and he use Pamama Au Lait and a grilled hare, while I cast Protectra. We killed it in roughly five minutes. I used sleep on the Dragon, he killed the Searcher. After the searcher was down, he used ancient circle and spirit surge right away. We had it down to about 1/4 health after a minute of me using Banish and his Jump ability. In the end, I used an ether and chainspell to keep him healed, and we finally killed the Dragon.

Oh and were Taketsu and Twistedx on Shiva.

Failure. A few mistakes/points that I have to clarify next time we go in.

1. Tell the WAR not to eat the HP Regen food that I bought for him before we go in because it has a short life span.

2. Tell him again because he did it twice and I only bought him 2.

3. I didn't pop my yagudo drink until it was only the dragon left. I didn't need to, it was just I was trying to cure the Warrior and control my Avatar at the same time, I wasn't able to drink it.

4. My Astral Flow was working very well. Since it was Water's Day, I decided to throw out there Levi since it was his day. I didn't run out of MP, only HP.

5. I got quite a bit of Hate and found it difficult to tell the difference between if the dragon had hate towards me or the warrior because it was facing my direction and hitting the warrior. I didn't quite understand that part. It hit Levi and wasn't facing Levi.

6. Don't buff before you go in because all of your buffs get removed. I took that chance and buffed before going in. No harm done, I had max MP when the level restriction was placed, just no previously placed buffs.

7. Can't buff party members while they are viewing the cutscene.

8. We failed because I caught agro from curing. If we had another person who could cure, it would have been 100% complete. :) Good times.

I told my warrior buddy that when he goes in, try and do this method::::

1. Pop the HP Regen food
2. Seconds later, run in and provoke the Dragon.
3. Start attacking the Eye FISRT, NOT the Dragon.
4. Once you hit the Eye once, pop your 2 hour so you can use every second of it without wasting any of it.
5. Provoke only the dragon, and as often as possible.


I told him I'd pop astral flow, send in levithan for the eye to help, and I'd cure him when he gets hit. I told him I'd do all this while meleeing the eye and dragon because we need as much help as possible for damage. All in all, I'd say I did exceptionally well and that he did also. Our only main flaw that I saw is that I got Cursed and the Dragon took me out in 2 hits.

Dragon caught agro from me while healing him during the Eye half of the battle and Sic'ed Levi on it. I didn't have trouble with that at all and it helped keep him alive longer once the dragon was attacking my Levi.

All was going well until Curse. I didn't think that was going to take me out so fast, but it dropped my HP to 90! That wasn't good. 2 hits, maybe 3 later and I was dead, Warrior was soon after. Dragon was down to about 45%-47% health left and the eye was dead. Another person and we could have done it. Bring player #3 or #4 if you are going in with a SMN/WHM and WAR/MNK. The two of you will most likely be unable to do it alone.



Look on the bright side: I didn't lose ANY exp from dieing out there and neither did my friend. It looks to me like this battle you can try without exp loss, ever.

Soloable as a 25 MNK. Just bring potions and any +attack food. Put on Focus and Dodge, and Hundred Fists the eye. Then once killed, turn to the dragon and keep fighting, occasionally having to use a potion. I did this solo as a 25MNK, and another time 2 years later as a 25MNK with a 21WHM so I wouldn't have to spend money on potions. Just voke the Dragon before attacking the eye, just incase the WHM pulls hate while curing you.

Estimated time: 3 minutes.

Very much possible to duo this one. Myself (WAR 25, MNK 12) and my partner (BLM 25, WHM 12) took it down easily.

I had to eat a couple of things to boost my strength and I did have 2 hi-potion + 2 and 2 hi-potions + 3. But I managed to kill the Eye just before the Dragon woke up. And took most of the damage. Awesome victory. :)

Too Weak
# May 05 2007 at 1:40 PM Rating: Decent
This dragon is too weak, just duo'd with wife for her Sandy rank 3 as Blu25/Nin12(me)and Mnk24/War12.

We entered the circle and used food and drinks, she used a meat kabob and au lait,I used tav taco, yag drink, au lait and buffed with metallic body, utsu and cocoon.

I ran in and slept the dragon with sheep song, while my wife voked the Searcher and used hundred fist. Dragon woke while Searcher had around 100hp left, so my wife finished of the Searcher and i switched to the dragon, cast sprout smack and wild oats and then just spammed head **** and bludgeon, and we just beat on it till it dropped.

Total time was 5mins 17secs, so not gonna break any records, but we both finished with around 1/2 hp and we were never in any real danger of dieing.
Basic Info man...
# Jan 21 2007 at 8:53 PM Rating: Decent
Meh....this fight is WAY majorly easy. Already done all three dragon fights. I dont find them that exciting anymore just because they are so easy. The only reason it would be hard is if people werent doing their job like they're supposed to....like the party before my last that I was helping did....

First off, all you have to do is sleep the dragon. That, you'd need a blm or rdm for. They can sit there and keep an eye on the dragon while, the other members being the melee half, go after the eye and pwn its ****. (There is a level cap of 25 by the way, so be sure you have the right level armor for this.)

You dont really need a whm or any kind of potions of any kind, unless like I mentioned in first paragraph someone doesnt do their job properly. Really, a drg would be nice, seeing as it has an edge against dragons....and it has a wyvern to add to the slaughtering.

Basically, send in the blm or rdm, your choice, sleep the dragon, call in the melee team (Only need about one or two good high attack melee jobs for this), silence the eye and than start slaughtering it and than once its dead go after the dragon. You dont need nice armor, nor do you need buffer spells (although I'm not saying you shouldnt get them....), but its really simple. Dont rush in without a plan though, or else YOU WILL DIE. Point made. It's happened before. Make sure everyone is ABLE to enter into the fight and that everyone knows their part by heart before you even make an attempt (You have to be on the rank 2-3 mission or be rank three to fight the dragon). This is coming from a 49 whm who has done all three dragons and has won every battle. >>; Don't think I'm acting cool. Cause this is just simple knoweledge. So, if you arent going "we already know and have done it before and won ourselves", dont think of me as stupid or stuck up. This is a warning and basic info for future attempts by others who are looking for a way....

P.S. DO NOT forget about the requirments for entering the battlefield. This happened to me the first time I tried to enter one when I first got to level 20-25 on whm. We had almost a full party, and only two were able to enter the battle field. They died and me and one or two other were just left sitting there wondering "why?". Well, dont make our mistake and don't forget about that. PLEASE dont make that same mistake. It will cost you time and effort, which you could always be using for more sufficiant stuff.

[b][/b] WHM25/BLM, WAR25/MNK, BLM24/THF (was 25 on the first go)

Took three attempts: Its advised to take potions or higher and, maybe, a few ethers.

Buffs at start included:
WAR: Boost, Defender
WHM: Protectra, Shellra, Blink, Regen

Upon entering the arena, Sleep was cast on the dragon until the searcher was killed by the WAR. During this the WHM cast Paralyze and Slow whilst curing.

Once the searcher was killed the WAR moved onto the dragon and the BLM helped with elemental magic. The WHM done the same as before with a cure about half way (this is when potions are used by the other two). With WAR's 2 hour, the fight is no problem(we didn't have it because we used it on a failed attempt)

ROFL OWNT? Ya Rlmente

ShadowWarriors: Pipip(WHM), Kingdjones(WAR) and Zaziu(BLM)

Me and a Friend duoed this easy, me lvl 25 blu/nin, and a pld/nin. Both elvaan. Just ran in to the fight, the pally ate a mithkabob and took on the searcher, i cast soporific on the dragon, it slept for the whole 90 seconds. The searcher died in around 30 seconds then we rested up mp and hp and destroyed the dragon with over half MP and nearly full HP. Overall a ridiculous easy fight. Just cast wild oats and bludgeoned it to death. And if i need shadow i could stun it with headbutt for a few seconds.

Me and two people from my LS, plus another person that needed it, did this guy easily yesterday. We were BLM/WHM, WHM/RDM, WAR/MNK, and RDM/WHM (me). When we got in BLM slept the dragon, and I lightly debuffed the eye as that was what we went after. WAR voked the eye, BLM nuked it and it died. We rested a sec as the dragon was still sleeping, then WAR voked the dragon and I debuffed it. At 3/4 health, BLM slept it and we rested, with the BLM standing because he had enough MP, he was ready to sleep it when it woke up. Then, when we were ready, we got back up and WAR voked it I debuffed it again as they had wore off and BLM nuked it hard. As it got to 1/4 health I nuked it with Blizzard and Fire then BLM Thunder nuked it and it died. Really easy fight, we didnt go for the record though.

we were helping a ls member do this fight, the whole time we had a MNK who was claiming she could solo the dragon as long as we took care of the eye. Well we get in there, only 4 people in the fight total, the 3 of us beat the crap out of the eye and stand back and watch this MNk beat the ever living **** out of the dragon, dragon took 3/4 of her healt but she was just way too much for it.She only ended up using 2 hi pots the entire fight. Was quite amusing.

Rank 5 myself a LS friend asked to do 2-3 with her. Of course I said yes so she RDM25/WAR and me RDM/PLD went on down to the mines and faces the dragon.

Drinks: Yag
Food: Def Up

Plan was to sleep the dragon, if I failed she would and if it woke up same. While we were fighting the eye I slow, paralyzed and blinded the dragon ready for when we fought it. We owned the eye quite quicly with the dragon only waking up once.

By this point we were both at 95%-100% health and still around 90% on MP.

We auto-engaged the dragon by accident but it didnt mater as it had just woken up anyway. We just used the damage from our swords + en-spells leaving all the rest of the MP for Cures. *remember never cure yourself* hate was shared by healing each other so we both go evenly damaged. Fight lasted 7 mins with me ending the fight with 70% health 0% MP and Rupali (the RDM/WAR) at 70% Mp and 70% HP

Easy. The only thing you have to look out for is the petrafication. It happened to us twice but as RDMs the Pertra ran out quickly enough.

2nd time; we were just leaving the BCNM area when a lvl20 blm (Rutu) asked us to help him, so we did. Same plan but we had no extra def food so it was much harder. We justed some pies that Rupali had on her and that was all. The start was the same as last time but the dragon fight was very close. Kept doing a Heavy stomp that took Rutu
from 100% HP to 10%!!! And took us from about 70% down to about 30%. + it paralized us all >.<

We slugged our way though and ended us all in red for HP and very low on MP. Fun fight though.

Hope it helped. If it did rate up please. a good example on how RDMs are adaptable.

We had a party of 6, 2 mnk, 1 rdm 2 wars and something else. Slept the dragon, killed the eye in about 15 seconds moved on to the dragon. Used my mighty strike, killed the dragon with the last migty strike blow.
The whole fight took about 50 seconds but we were arguing about the rdm casting buffs on us, he said he'd be out of mp for the fight so refused. At the end he had 90 mp left. The clear time was 6 mins!

This BC can be done with a minimal party. Just be sure to know the extent and capabilities of your job, and set a plan.

I just did the BC with 2 people, myself as THF/WAR and a BRD/WHM. I tanked this without the use of shihei, and for the latter half of the fight i was even cursed down to 79 HP. 2 hits and I would have died.

Here's what we did: I had the BRD immediately rush in and and Soul Voice + Lullabye the Dragon. I used my food (Roast Pipira) and a Pear au Lait. While the Eyeball was busy aggroing and binding the BRD, I used Sneak attack right away, hit it, then Provoked. I ran back to the BRD to get Mambo, then went to kill the eye. To my dismay, sleep and bloody bolts did NOT work on him. And I found myself having to tank both as the Dragon woke up many times while the BRD rested. He got lullabye off in time, although I think my HP got into red a couple times.
It took me about a minute to kill the eye, then I focused on using Sleep bolts to keep the Dragon down as BRD recovered MP. Hate bounced back and forth as we lullabyed and provoked to get our wind back. Bloody bolts were effective against him, and saved the BRD's MP. Whenever BRD got hate, I would use Sneak Attack followed immediately by a sleep bolt. I finished him off with a 300tp Fast Blade for about 200 damage.

I know everyone's not going in with THF and BRD, but hopefully my post can show you how to use skimpy jobs to overcome difficult odds.

Rate up if you found this post helpful! ^^

This is going very poorly for me. So far I'm 0/2 on this fight, and I'm giving up for now. Each time we went down there with a party of 5-6 people, half wouldn't be able to get in. Both fights were with only 3 people. :\ Very crappy.

Battle 1
My pt and I killed this dragon for several of our rank 3 in Bastok a couple weeks ago. Using provoke and 100 fists seems to do rather well in killing it. While having someone focus on the eye and a healer watching the pt or potions.
Battle 2
I helped someone from ls kill the windy dragon last night it was quick and easy over in seconds. Took some nice screen shots during the battle this time. For all you working on rank 3 there is a lvl 25 cap so remember that for your armor. And good luck it was fun.

Just fought these guys yesterday for the 5th or 6th time, this one was actually thrilling because we went w/ rng/nin, blm/whm, blm/whm. Was quite a fight, in the end both blm died and the rng (me) finished off the dragon w/ a couple more arrows and about 150hp. My reason for posting though is that since it took us considerably longer to finish the fight than it has the past times I've done it I was able to see 2 abilities that I had not seen before and thought I might enlighten anyone about to fight them.
Seeker used an ability called Magic Barrier, which seemed to make him completely immune to all magic, I cant saw how long it lasted because we killed him shortly after he used it (he had about 1/4HP when he used it). Also, I'm not sure which one of them used it, or even what its called, but I know that one of them used something similar to the attack that Tremor Ram does which cuts your max HP and MP in half. I never actually saw the attack but I glance at the Party box and saw one of the blm w/ about 115 HP. Other things of interest... hmm... Seeker has spikes on so be ready for that, and the dragon has something that pulls you in, but Im not sure if I would call it an ability because it seems to occur even when its asleep.
I guess thats about it, if anyone needs help for this feel free to /sea for me and if I'm nearby maybe I'll help. Good Luck!

I am about to do rank 3 and fight this NM in giddeus. SInce it is an NM, do u go the fight automatically or do u have to wait for it to spawn or when you run o giddeus and get to the area he spawns in, it automatically starts the fight?

I am in windy to start doing the mission but How often would there be people to do the mission for rank 3? Because i think i may have to offer "rewards/ bribes" to people to join me fight.

I am a RDM20/BLM10. Cooking skill:50. So what are my options to beat the NM. have 2 more people in PT with some Pineapple juice/apple pies,etc ?? any hints?

Just a thought, but I believe I could solo the dragon and eye if i had a lot of gil to blow on good equipment that I used 25 levels ago, and 5/6 icarus wings. Run up, pop an icarus wing and use WS on the eye, pop another one, WS, hit the eye a couple times and it should be dead. Run over to the dragon, Meiko Shisui, WSx3 followed by 2 more from icarus wings = dead dragon. :) Of course I would bring potions in case..hate to lose valuable exp.

You can't Icarus wings can only be used once every several minutes. You walk up, pop a wing, WS the eye, get owned.

So does that mean if you're wearing a lvl 29 gear equipment, once you enter the battle you will be naked because of the cap?
Since I'm planing to fight the dragon tonite and am worrying about finding pt members who would be interested fighting with me for free

yeah looks good Debont.

Just keep your wits about you and work as a team and that fight would be very fun. Remember to try your best and buff up!

A couple LS friends an myself fought this about two weeks ago. Our rdms needed to do the rank mission an we were helping since some of us had already done this once. So our pt was WHM/BLM (me), BLM/WHM, RDM/BLM, RDM/WHM, WAR/???. Our 6th RDM/WHM couldn't get in. So we fought with 5 of us. Our BLM forgot armor for the cap so he nearly died. XD (The WAR, BLM, an myself were over the lvl 25 cap.) We all ended up using our 2hrs in order to save our poor BLM. Mine of course nearly getting me killed in the process. (Stupid Bene takes too much hate.) I forget the time we cleared it but it said we had the time record for the battle on the Carbuncle server.

My friend and I are going to try to take on this mission. I am a lvl 21 WAR/MNK and he is a lvl 20 WHM/BLM. Do you think we could do this? Or would we need more people. Thanks in advanced.
Close Call, But we won!!! /Cheer

My friend (Malfeis 25 WAR) and I (Dashe 34 RDM) just got done duoing this beast about 2 hours ago on Sylph for the first time.

Clear time was 7 min 11 sec. Only had to use cheap food + I used 2 pineapple juices. I had to use Sleep twice on the Dragon after it woke up mid way through the battle with the Eye.

I personally made a LOT of mistakes and I DO mean a LOT! (couldn't seem to find my spells, which was recorded on my PC :( ). I guess I was just shaking in my little Taru Taru boots the entire time. I kept on using spells on the Dragon that it seemed immune to (para, slow); wasteing a lot of MP.

We could have done a LOT better if I brought a sword with me instead of just letting Malf do all the damage.

At the end of the battle it was VERY close. Malf took a lot of damage when we had the Dragon down to 1/4. When the Dragon was finally down to 1/10 of it's life, I ran in to Melee with my Yew Wand+1. Only had 9 MP left at this point. Used my last Cure spell and hoped for the best. It was dead after I hit it twice for 8 damage each.

Video is still pending due to the LARGE file size. If anyone wants it, PM me and I'll see about sending it to you when it's done.

Ahrimans can't be charmed and NMs can't charmed, Seeker/Spotter counts as both.

Yeah, simple as pie.

I recently changed allegiance, so I had to fight this guy again...

SMN/WHM
SMN/WHM
SMN/WHM

I swear, we won this fight in like 15 seconds, we didn't break the record because one of the members wanted to watch the cutscene. We all summoned Leviathan, rushed in, Assault >>> Astral Flow >>> Tidal Wave, and that was it >.>

Easiest. fight. evar.

Ok, so I transferred alliance to Sando and did the dragon in Giddeus. Went in with 2 buddies, and were rather unsure about our result. Well, we didn't the record but we straight whooped it.

Our pt (if you would call it that) was:

RNG(me), SAM, and BLM.

I used Eagle Eye Shot and SAM used Meiyko and we killed it just over 4 min. Not bad for 3 ppl.
