Kerihobo - PLD75/THF25
Cassy - BLM75/THF25

we were farming tiger fangs in different locations cos they die so easy and didnt wanna share and wait for respawns ^^;

anyway, cassy says she sees wheeping willie and im rolling my eyes going "gawd she's been goin on about this thing for weeks... sure... i'll go help kill it..."

we kill it, it was all a suprise to me, i didnt know 5 saplings would spawn, and i didnt know lumber jack is kinda tough for his level :O

alot of HP, and stonega IV bites *** when you're a PLD who wasnt full MP at the start of the fight to begin with, and a blm subbing thf that cant heal ya... lol...

i was almost dead, cassy was low on mp, i was all UGHHHHH and then i thought... HMMMMMMMMMM

told cassy to warp to her hp in jeuno, switch to rdm75, and come back out, meanwhile i kited jack all the way to jeuno, kinda easy cos he's really slow, had to keep waiting for him. Cassy would come outta jeuno, heal me, refresh me, phalanx me, use most of her remaining mp on Aero III / Water III, then warp... and... repeat until Jack died...

so i guess we cheated, but meh, it was fun, having lv 25THF sub is SO gimp :O it gave us a little boost of gil tho :D

his melee attacks are actually really weak, most of the time they were doing zero dmg to me, his stonega IV hurt tho >< 600 dmg sometimes, and he uses it often and without any recast time :O

all in all, really proud of the strategy invented on the spot :P

Does despawn if left alone for several minutes. -_-
Spawned him, got 'em down to 81% as a MNK/NIN... Had to zone. Kept Chi Blasting him to bring him back to zone, but eventually took too long, and he vanished. ****!

Easily duo'd with a MNK/NIN (me) and a RDM/NIN. He didn't seem particularly accurate, and his magics were nothing. No drop, though.

noticed weeping willow on widescan when i was running jeuno from the glacier and i desided to give it a try i was 75Bst/whm when i fought him i called CC and sent it after weeping willow it died fast and spawnd a few saplings i put it on Lumber Jack as soon as he poped and fought with CC saplings still attacking CC but not doing much dmg at all the thing you have to watch out for when soloing this guy is when he uses Stonega IV he has instant cast with it i kept dia2 on LJ and ran off to heal after a few stonga (barstonra would help didnt even pop into my mind until i killed it) after a little while CC died i used a HQ bettle jug and set panzer after LJ when CC died all the saplings despawned i also 2hrd Panzer and fought with him as long as i could till i had to rest from stonega again used reward every chance i got panzer managed to get him a little under 50% panzer eventualy died and i sent anouther CC at him fought a while but CC lasted nowhere near as long as panzer did LJ uses break but never once took effect on my pets it died and i ran around a little while till CallBeast was ready and sent anouther CC and fought with it still keeping Dia2 on it CC died but LJs hp was low enough i desided to go for it and fight the last bit without a pet (still had 2min left on CallBeast) used rampage and ended up using a tp wing i had with me rampaged again then one or two more hits and it died Droped a Vile elixer reraiser lightning mantle and bloodsword ^^ was amazed to see i could solo it since i was always told bst couldnt do it

Just got done soloing Lumber Jack as whm/nin (solo whm ftw) Heres my strategy:

Kinkobo + platinum grip + pammamas
stack as much evasion gear as you can

Pull him to where there are all kinds of weak mobs around

Killed weeping willow using NPC on Stulwart Shield mode, Made sure he had hate before he poped all the babies so they all attacked him rather than me then went through killing them one by one. By the end of this NPC was pretty much dead, don't bother curing, it's not worth it stonega will kill him any ways.

Now the hard part...

be sure to keep him para at all time. Keep yourself haste barstonra and barpetra. Erase any thing he does to you reight away, but para is higher priority. after the first half hour you'll get the hang of it.

Set macros for Dia on <stnpc> and Spirit taker on <stnpc>.

When you get need mp: w/o disengaging the lumberjack Dia a Sapling wandering around the area and spirit taker him... This can all be done w/o losing claim on Lumberjack (I had a party of 6 people watching me do the whole fight waiting to take claim) from this you should easily fill your MP bar (I averaged 600)

Rinse Wash Repeat..... for about 3 hours and he'll finally go down.

Good luck and here's some screenies to prove I'm not just pullen **** out of my but :)

Just killed this guy last night. Fight went real smooth. Me as a 75drk/nin and my bro as a 75rdm/blm, had no problem taking this guy down. Dread spikes worked so well it wasn't even fair for LJ. With haste gear and haste, I was able to cycle through my shadow with ez. Although he does chain spell spam stoneaga IV which was hitting me for ~150 dmg and droping my shadows quick. When my shadows were down I either was ready to recast shadows or dread spikes were up. All in all, RDM only had to convert once. We had no problem aspiring and draining from him. Paralyze worked extremely well, when LJ 2hr bloodweapon, RDM just casted gravity and I kited him for about 30-45secs tell his 2hr was done. After that I used souleater/bloodweapon and switch to duelwield axes and went to town. Took us about 10-15 mins to kill him. We got crap drops, but we do have the tod and will be back for more.

I have soloed Lumber Jack 6 times and have not died as a 75 Ninja.

I would also like to know how the **** a NIN can solo this HNM, unless he has some way of healing himself, I would think stoneaga IV would take all his shadows down and deal dmg at the same time. Considering LJ spams stoneage IV, I would think that would be more than enough dmg to kill a NIN with no healing ability. I just would like to know how a NIN would do it.

AUG/21/07 >< I am now 0/14 on LJ, he does still drop the BS right? Anyone know the drop rate?

Just killed Lumber Jack a little while ago with a rather unconventional setup.

72PLD/THF
75WHM/SMN (me)
75BLM/WHM
75RDM/NIN (Joined in at 50%)

We were camping Kirata and after going 0/4 we decided to go check on Lumber Jack before heading off to bed and Weaping Willow was up. So we quickly get to work and claim the NM.

All I have to say really is that Barstone and Shell really makes this fight infinitely easier. Also paralyze can really take this NM down a huge notch too. It has a ton of HP so it'll take a long time to bring it down, but as long as you can stick it out you'll be fine.

I've killed this guy twice this weekend duo me tanking as 75rdm/blm and a Bst/whm for DD. Went pretty smoothly, didn't even have to convert the first time. Took us about 15 minutes to kill. What really sped things up was us doing a light skill chain with me bursting. Can't silence it, and Slow II wasn't very reliable on the second fight. Ice spikes were a real life saver, with paralyze activating at least every other swing. Probably gonna go back to kill him again today. Good luck to everyone else thats trying to kill him.

Some questions, for those that have tried and/or killed him;

1. From posts below, it would seem that this guy doesn't zerg. Is this correct?
2. Is he stunnable? I would guess that since he's earth-based, the spell "Stun" wouldn't work, but what about Head ****/WS Stun/Bash effects?

If he's stunnable, I think I might head out as BLU/NIN and give it a try.

I was on my way to help wife with her BRD af feet in The Elderine via the Beaceadine entrance. So we killed her NM's and i said sartastically "Wonder if Lumber Jack is up". So I walk over. Kill a Trent and went further and I saw another trent but it was WW, uncamped... unclaimed... wow!
So we got 5 people together in seconds, RDM NIN NIN WHM WAR.

We brought it off the cliff so ppl could zone from jeuno and fight, saves tons of time. So... Then we fight it, no problems once so ever. Hate bounced around like a
rubber ball.
Got the Mantle, Reraiser, Vile Elixer and a Bloodsword!!!

I decided to test my mite as rdm/blm mainhanding hornetneedle and spamming energy Drain. . .

Day 1
way outside the pop windows after the mainte i decided to just drop by. . . .and find a Weeping Willow without anybody caring. Killed the tree, aoe'd the saplings and had to med. . . .and Jackie despawned. . .
2nd try i kill the saplings (cyclone) before Willow. . .Lumber Jack will aggro you if you don't take several steps back after killing willow.

Fight turned out to be rather easy, yet long (45mins). Main dmg would be Choke, Shock, Burn,Poison II, Bio II, Enblizzard and Blaze Spikes. His added effect stunis seriously deadly/annoying. . .Towards the end his Stonega IV (usually like 40dmg with 124 earth resistence) scored a few, seemingly random, damaging hits like 500+ dmg. . . .apart from 20k gil i got Vile Elixir, Reraiser, Lightning Mantle and a ToD. . .


Day 2
Same game, except now with the strategy known. . .and i learned his Break spell can affect me. . .added Barpetrify even though Petrify wore rather quick and caused me no problems. . .but these random high dmg stonega's towards the end. . .

Yet another Reraiser, 20k gil, Vile Elixir, Lightning Mantle and a Beetle Blood. . .so much for Light day Full Moon <.<

Day 3
Anf yet again. . .the same. . .the same. . .the same. . .until around 5% HP he hit me with Break, followed by the evil evasion down, followed by a 500dmg StonegaIV through stoneskin&phalanx (lightningday, no weather, random moon phase), followed by a double critfor ~200dmg each and i was left petrified at 70HP. . .he missed me twice before showingme the way to the ground. . .

But nobody cares for him so i came back right away with a whm40 as stona slave and repeated the fight on Darksday. . .he seemed to resist spells alot more then usual (or faster) and hit harder and more often. . .so it seemed. His Break only hit once towards the end but with Stona at hand this time i couldn't are less. . .

and got another 20k, Vile Elixir, Rereaiser and Lightning Mantle. . .

tbc. . . .



Even tho the usual classes (smn, rdm, thf, nin. . .maybe blue) should be able to take him on solo, i would recomment to bring a matching backup like a 2nd smn or a healer. The evasion down is quite devastating and getting petrified might turn the tide quick. . .like it did for me

10 mantle
10 reraiser

00 Bloodsword

-.-

But i changed my strategy. F*ck DoT. Tried it first on a thunder day with rairin obi. . .i plainly used up spare MP to nuke rather then DoT and convert whenever i can. Works pretty good. My best try so far i downed him in 38mins. Still alot time but better then 45mins.

I am waiting for this thing to pop. I'm using my friends 75drk/nin to solo this thin. I duo'd waraxe beak in met. mt. but... it was har with silence AoE ; ;

Edit:
Okay on May19, the 2hr main i logged off at the pop. So okay i felt cocky with my friends 75drk/nin so i see weeping widdow, it pops in the cicle of where Lumber Jack pops.
Weeping widdow pops the saplings approx 5, at 60% and below, BUT, u DO NOT HAVE TO KILL THEM! You can Weeping Widdow and lose them!! (they stay poped).
So, about 5-10seconds of Weeping Widdow's Death Lumber Jack Pops. In the exact Place where WW died. Lumber Jack has Chain Spell active, and uses Blood Weapon, 60%-.
I didnt solo cuz i died. got 4 others to wtf pwn it.
- Lightning Mantle
- Reraiser
- Vile Elixir

I have killed this dude 27+ times at first he was pretty hard.. then.. I hit 75... redmage. I soloed him 7 times with extreme predjudice. My setup as -dmg equip, I had genbu's shield, cheviot cape, and jelly ring, along with a scorpion harness, and all that. You simply live off of LJ, aspir him to sh*t, drain him to Sh*t, keep phalanx, barstone, stoneskin, and all buffs on. He has a crapload of hp, but if you are a rdm 75 with the right gear, you should be able to pwn him hard. With all my buffs and -dmg gear he was doing pathetic dmg. Rdm/nin is not even needed, toa degree it is worse that rdm/blm. You can even go with a dagger, and use energy drain to keep mp maxed. If your mp gets low, chainspell aspir. the 7 times I soloed him the battle ended with me having 90% of my mp.

This -is- a HNM, technically, but it was around when the level cap was either 55 or 60, I think, so it's a wuss now. Duo'd it a few days ago as WHM75/NIN37 with my gf, RDM52 at the time. She just stayed out of range of Stonega IV and hasted/refreshed/regened me mostly. Cured me a few times when LJ got through my Utsusumi and Stoneskin. Paralyze messes him up, but good luck sticking slow for very long, if at all. Silence isn't even worth trying. Just kept barstonera up and took his Stonega IV spam, which didn't even do much damage. Just took out utsusemi. Fight lasted about 50-55 minutes and I used 124 shihei. No drop. ; ; I usually duo it with a THF71 and let him tank, and the fight goes a lot faster. Around 15-20 minutes. I'm 1/7 so far, and not camping for a while because there's been more campers due to stupid maintenance. :p
