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.

Ran into this guy when leveling in the Tree - good times. 0/1 drops.
Gets in the way!

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

Is he sleepable? I'm just curious, I would like the Daihannya for my Samurai but I don't know if he is sleepable, if not I'll have to recruit some help hehe.

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.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

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.

This sonofabish used Hundred Fists on me 2x consecutively... is this normal??? In fact, he used it 3x in about 15 mins. We escaped once after it had used it already, came back and it used it twice again! Seriously, wtf...

Oh and yes, it can draw you in.

draw in

There's a video on killingifrit of a RDM soloing this bad boy without any mp pots. The only medicine he used was 1 echo drop when he was silenced. It took him a little over 32 minutes. Was fun to watch.

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.

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

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.
