Gessho helps you during this fight. He is not an enemy. The Ashu Talif Captain, if killed immediately, wins you this fight I believe. The crewmembers dont need to be engaged if not necessary.

I should also confirm that you only need to get the Captain down to 20% HP to complete the mission. Our set up was:


Each of them soloed a mob in the first wave, with the exception of the NIN tank, who took on two, then, everyone focused on the Captain in the second wave. BLM/WHM is very handy in this fight, as I had to use Benediction, which instantly got the attention of ALL the mobs, and Curaga from the BLM took the heat off me a little until the tank could get the hate back.

Did this fight a week ago. It's crazy. The whole party wiped toward the end, due to vicious WS damage from the Captain, and with just me(75 WHM)and the Captain left standing, I only just beat it down enough with my capped club to get the cutscene for us. I was left with 37/1038 HP and 17/1033 MP. There were only 5 of us (mostly 75 but one or two a couple of levels lower) as the 6th (2nd BLM) couldn't get into the BC arena. Close fight, but wouldn't be too hard with a full party of good players.

Ghesso is indeed an NPC helper, and he has quite a bit of HP, so no need to concentrate on him. I think he can be cured, etc, but I didn't bother. Too much to focus on with party members.
about the correction.

Luthien is correct. The Captain is the formor dressed in the COR AF.

Gessho is a member of the Tengu branch of the Yagudo, who left Mindaritan long ago before the main branch of the Yagudo degraded into semi-mindless savages.

According to some Japanese mythology, the Tengu were goblins that lived in the
mountains of Japan and orginally taught ninjitsu to the Japanese.

Hope you enjoyed the trivia.

looks more like a Fomor than a Yagudo...
Gessho is the non mindaritan yagudo behind the captain it looks like.
