This one time I was with a couple friends skilling up on Steelshells and we were about to leave for the day... I figured I'd go poke Ancient Goobue and Mijin if things went bad...
So I went over to him and started fighting him. About a second later he went ape **** on me and I was dead before I could even Mijin. Lesson learned. Never underestimate this guy.

This guy is in the way whenever I go and try to lvl. They throw him in the middle of a **** good camp.

called my LS to kill it once so we could party. He used 100 fists 8 times. Nin was tanking it and then would kite the mob as it used 100 fists. Simple fight, not too tough, never got drop.
Exterminate all rational thought. This is the conclusion I have come to.

Yes, that is normal. He can use Hundred Fists at will.

Me and another Beastmaster duo him every once in a while. We've never gotten a drop aside from Moss, but he can spam Hundred Fists, Draw In, and has all of the normal Goobbue TP moves. He's dangerous to any job that takes direct damage. I'd imagine a pair of Summoners could drop him about as easy as me and my buddy do. The trick is...

Charm one of the Blood Balls near where he pops, Familiar it, toss it at him, run up to the pond with Skimmers and Steelshells, then use Heel and hope that your Blood Ball makes it all the way back to you. We so far have not had one not make it to us. Then from there you just keep tossing pets at him until viola, he's dead.

Good luck to any others who want to try their hand at him. ^^
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.

Maybe if you grabbed a pair of powder boots and fled up there, you could make it fast enough so that when you Heel'd, your pet would make it. I don't know if BST can use Powder Boots, though, just a suggestion.

Easily duoed with THF + BRD. I am in there with RDM to do buffs like Haste and protect. I enfeeble with Para, slow, and blind. He is easy since his acc is low and a THF with good gear, double mambo, melody earrings will out evade his constant hundred fists. 1/2 on Daihannya drop. He drops greater moss every time.

Indeed it can. In fact, the bard I duoed with went back some other time with a full party. He said that Ancient Goobue was easier with just the two of us than with the whole party.

Tried this last night with a 75NIN, 73WHM, 71WHM while we were skilling up.

This NM must of used Hundred Fists about 8 times...We ran out of mp at about 50% and managed to stay in the fight till it had 30% left where we wiped. With help on the way we sadly watched a LS come up and slaughter this ***** :(

I saw him as a 74 BLM and thought I'd try Sleep-Nuke soloing him.

He resisted Sleep 2, Bind, and then as I Manafont+Warped to get away he used Hundred Fists. I ended up in Jeuno with 57HP. I'm a Hume BLM, so that's about 7%, and I had Blink+Stoneskin up to start with.

I watched a 75BST/THF solo this thing last night. He lost his first attempt, but our WHM raised him and he went at it again for the win. Our party disbanded for the night when he had it at around 1/4 life, but my b/f and I stayed to watch him take it down. Pretty impressive.

I am a RDM63. My party formed alliance of 12 lvl 62-67 for this NM. We only did it to clear the area to avoid aggro while fighting Processionaires. Invited a 3rd party but they declined...and watched us die a painful death. I recommend having some lvl 75s in your party because we got whooped. Luckily I had ReraiseII on due to my Reraise Hairpin, and the other party was nice enough to help raise the others.

tanked this NM STRAIGHT up as a thf/nin. Oi no problem, he is my *****. I got it 2x during the fight and it was cuz I was in the bathroom taking a ****. My Evasion as at 293 + Double Mambo. Had a 62 war/nin. 75 nin/war, 75 brd and a 73 sam/thf with me. The war and sam were there to do damage. And nin for backup.

I'm positive this can be duoed by a thf and brd. 0/2 on GK.

My LS takes this guy down occassionally, and have yet to get either katana to drop. We're approximately 0/6~ though the great moss has dropped every time.

If you have a RDM 70+, gravity makes this guy a cake walk. Just kite him during his hundred fists.

Beat him tonight with 6 people. 2 PLD 1 NIN 1 RNG 1 RDM and me BLM. All 73+. We had the NIN marathon him and me and the RNG just damaged very slowly, occassionaly pulling hate. About 3/4 in we started just binding him whenever he did 2 hour, which worked out very well. The NIN came close to death two times but well placed stuns saved him. No G. Katanas dropped, just Great Moss ><

Been exp party on darters last few nights, hes always up. He should drop more then just that one sam's katana. But 2 strats.

1. have as many 74+rdms posible with 37 drk subs, and be ready for chainspell stun for hundread fists. Also darks, so when rdm's 2-hours rdms and drks stun in turn to slow down attack.

2. have a bard to sleep it so party can rest up. Requires everyone to stop attack when someone makes the call, and no DoT cast on it.

Well, thats a few ideas to try out.

1) He uses Hundred Fists every 60 seconds, so you don't Chainspell Stun.

2) He's resistant to sleep, much like every NM or HNM is at that level. NEVER rely on sleep to save your ***, or you'll be eating dirt.

Just kite him, it's not that hard.

Wouldn't it be smarter to Sleep it when it does it's 2 hour? Or does it resist too much against a lvl 74-75 RDM? Sleep is an enfeebling magic so maybe with the Tabar and an enfeebling torque it shouldn't be too bad. I do this exact same thing with Ruby Quadav and other NM, once I see they commence their 2 hour I sleep them and rest my MP. And by the way, is this a 22-24 hour spawn mob? I saw it almost all the time when I experienced in that area.

i saw ancient up and thought i would try it as a 74rdm/nin. bad idea. i didnt know about the frequency of hundred fist and got pwned first try. second try i was more cautious and waited till i saw hundred fists then tried sleep II. my enfeebling is 284 uncapped (2k into 74 so i havent capped it yet) and i was resisted.. twice. i just kited it until it wore then rebuffed and fought again. i tried to get my buffs back up and was almost fully ready until it did hundred fists again. after 2 tries on ancient im 0/2 and am yet to stick a sleep after 4 tries. if you want to stick it (if its even possible) i would suggest lvl 75 with enf gear and merits. when i get 75 and have enf merrited i may try this again. till then ill just leave it be.

if you are set on soloing it before you are 75 i suggest being a thf/nin. its acc isnt super high and thfs rock with eva. happy hunting^^

We just beat him today. I was in a skill up pt with my LS and we had about 8 or 9 people 65-75. We got board and decided to go kill him....

We did alright till about 40%hp and mages were low on mp and I went down. The only reason we did so well first time through was because the 2 Drks were stunning him through his 100fists. He did it about 3 times. I was the main tank 71PLD. We regrouped re buffed and invited a pt that was xping there and watching us.

Second time through we beat him. We had 14-16 ppl. I forget now, but make sure you flash/sheildbash weapon bash stun as much as you can through his 100fists, he used it about 4 times. He was hitting 200-300 to me with earth staff and jelly ring. About 4 times a second. In my pt we had 4 whms 1 rdm and me just to keep me alive. NIN tank will get pwned I think he spames AOE and hits very fast I could hardly get a heal off. Goodluck^^

My exp party of 68 pulled him the other day, I freaked out when I saw what we were pulling. About 10 seconds in to the fight he uses Hundred Fists, our pld used Invincible then. After the hundred fists was over, we thought we could get him. But to our suprise he just used Hundreds Fists AGAIN. The pld ran away but he was "summoned" by the ancient so he couldnt really run anywhere. We ended up chainspell escaping, the pld didnt make it though. ;_;

Was in the area exping, right before we teleported out, the THF did Perfect Dodge and ran to the party. Our PLD panicked and provoked it. Right before we teleported, it smacked the 65 PLD for like 200+. I think it was a critical hit, but I don't remember clearly. Either way, he's big, hits hard, and is nasty as ****.

This picture doesn't make him look that big...
but he is.

Tried to set up a few alliances with nearby JPN parties but they said "no", and one replied with "Hundred Fists x10".

Dunno if he meant he can use Hundred Fists a few times, or if his attack delay is so low, its practically like perma-hundred fists

Needless to say, Scary.
