Solo'd this as a RDM/blm 68. I had my wife level 68 WHM provide back up heals if I got injured.

The first time I lost because I aggro'd some lady bugs. I highly suggest kiting him across the bridge to the wide open zone to the west. I used Gravity than kited him around in a figure 8 motion casting Water III on him doing about 400-600 damage. He has a ton of HP so I had to use 800 mp on nukes than converted and used 800 mp again and he finally died.

It takes time but very doable as a RDM 68. Just be patient and stay away from those lady bugs.

Well if you have 250 enfeebling or less even with elemental seal Fingerfilcher Dradzad can't be slept. Gravity does stick however as well as bind and he can be stunned no elemental seal needed.

I tried him as a 75blm/rdm and he has a lot of HP. My thunder IVs were doing over 1100 and were only taking about 1/8 of his HP bar. I got him down to about 2/3 with only 200 MP left after all the gravity, thunder, and experimenting.

A drk and a nin in the area were kind enough to help out since the nin needed the quest anyway. I might have been able to beat him since bind did stick for a long time. I could have rested my MP back while he stayed bound since he doesn't seem to have a ranged attack.

Drain works well, no MP to aspir, and for blm defense he does hit pretty hard. 80 to 120 for his regular hits and 200s for his criticals. With gravity and bind you should be able to avoid his melee though. The only thing you really need to worry about are the lady bugs in the area they will aggro if you get too close.

Not so scary.

Solo'd as 75 DRG/WHM easily. All I needed to do was take off my eva- gear and slip on my SH+1 and I was set. Just disengage for counterstance and whenever his attention wanders to the wyvern while you wait, just jump on him to show him who he's supposed to be hitting. This was done without capped polearm or evasion skill for lvl75 too, so it's far from impossible to do at an earlier level.

Good luck, everyone.

Just solo'd it as 75RDM/DRK. All I needed was stoneskin, phalanx, and a few normal buffs (no blink add haste). For counterstance I bound him and let it wear off. I didn't even Nuke. 4 vorpal blades a convert towards the end to regain mp for the minor healing and it was over. Absorb spells work, Dispelled it to remove defence bonus. Kind of a big letdown really.

Me(75Nin/17Dnc), for fun, and Drofrehter(71War/Nin) duoed this beast. Went in, I grabbed hate and enfeebled with Ninjuitsu. Once I got about 1/10 of his health down, Drof ran in, buffed and Mighty Strikes, follwed by Rampage. After that we fought him until his shadows were down then I Blade: Jin and killed him. Overall easy fight, I think any two jobs can duo this.

Solo'd as BRD/NIN using the 'turn around on counter' strat. Didn't hit me once - never tried lullaby, but he can be requiem'ed.

Just watched a 70nin/30dnc solo this guy. When he did his counterstance, the nin just disengaged and healed himself with Curing Waltz II, than reengaged after counterstance wore. Of course he kept shadows up.
Am I the lowest level to solo it? >.>

Soloed him as 70PUP/35NIN using WHM automaton.

Using an evasion build, this thing didn't even touch me until it used it's Haste TP move and got a few lucky shots. This guy's got garbage accuracy.

EDIT: Is it assumed that he's a Dancer because he uses Berserker Dance? Or is there another reason? I would guess WAR if anything, since it has Double Attack.

I killed him as drg/rdm.

He uses a move called orcish counterstance, which is just like regular counterstance. Friendly warning, if you hit hard, his counters hit hard, I think I did more damage to myself then he did.

Killed this Orc with 75 THF and 75 BLM. He's a pushover.
