SMN75 solo

he's really easy to solo with Carby kite technique.

/rdm would be great for fast cast since this NM moves faster than a bullet train.

If you have 2hr, use it for a free pet (as MP is gold). I brought out fenrir to fight him. Once 2hr is over, switch over to carby.

Once the NM is down to his last 25%, use fenrir and full on assault (pending MP) I had over 700 mp at the time, One Eclipse Bite did 1400 dmg and it moved the HP bar by 7%

Either way, the fight was surprisingly easy... Took around 35 minutes and I walked away with 36 xp to boot.

Umm First off make sure you have Paralyna and cure of some sort!

1st setup:
59 RNG (me)
65 SAM
75 THF
60 something WAR

we all wiped due to Paralyze

2nd try.. :
40 WHM (me)
70 RDM
75 DRG
72 NIN

On this try it kept using Cyclone claws and caught the NIN off guard and un- shadow'd.. NIN died and So did I.. DRG took over and PWNed it with the help of the RDM..

Moral: Dont under estimate this thing...

Almost solo'd as RDM/NIN. Got him under 10% then he got a lucky shot on low stoneskin and utsusemi timers down. Had to bind/grav him at one point for mp and convert. Paraylze is definately a pain, started binding and moving away for it to wear. Definately suggest a whm or /whm friend to accompany for an easier fight.^^

Had a pretty easy time duo nin/war and whm/blm, solo might be a tad tricky.

Killed Koenigstiger solo as NIN75/WHM36 rather easily. Used the Walahra until I had used that 30MP, then switched to E Hairpin for evasion. Otherwise, a mix of evasion and DD gear, and just 1 merit in evasion. When he first pops you're given a few seconds to go ahead and land blind and slow on him, then follow with paralyze. Used 1 Yagudo Drink for safety in case something went wrong, but never needed it. Took a while to kill (perhaps around 15 minutes), but was a very easily managed fight. Graviga will wipe shadows, so be ready for that. Paralyze eats him up, and cancels a lot of Gravigas. Once you figure out how long it will take him to do a TP move, the rest of the fight is cake. Only buffs used were Squid Sushi, Protect 2, Reraise, and of course Utsusemi. Stoneskin would be a good buff to start with while you're figuring out how he fights. Tossed my RNG AF when I quit a while back, so I'm glad to have these socks back. 36 limit points for the kill.

I hate this NM. Went for the DS fight with 7 people: 75pld, 69blm 56drg 54drg 51rng (me) 52sam and 58bst. DS was a pushover, and we were all kind of cocky from the ease of that fight so I asked if we could try my AF3 and they all agreed. I cast shadows and spawned it. He took out the pld fairly easily, so I called in for back up; 75nin and 69whm. Once we got them out there it was fairly easy. Nin tanked mostly, pld tanked when shadows fell.

Thanks to everyone that helped out: Galluf, Peenut, Vratt, Eace, Burne, Unwantedchild, Lordpeet and Marioversionb.

Fought as a 75 Paladin(me) , 65 White Mage ,and a 63 or 64 Red Mage and won . If I wouldn't of had spirit taker we would not of won this fight. This guy does have a crap load of hp as well!

Also little help to u guys doing this for ranger af and u have a higher job u can spawn it as your higher job u dont have to have your ranger to spawn it . Just make sure u have done af1 and 2 first.

good luck

Soloable by a 75 SMN.

he is a very hard mob though, it took him 1 hit to break Stoneskin, and his spells have a rather large AoE.

If you do plan to solo, I'd recommend wearing a refresh equip, or at least bringing some juice, because, even w/free Carby, you will most likely be burning a lot of MP just using Erase, Stoneskin, and the occasional Cure and Paralyna. Also, you need about double the normal distance to resummon after Carbuncle dies, seeing as it's a tiger it will catch up to you rather fast.

I had my doubts on this fight or better yet, wasn't sure that I will be able to get the manpower (Alliance) to go after it, since everywhere I read, most everyone was saying that it was a very hard fight and that some alliances were wiped out totally by this fight.

There are a couple of things that I like to point out, which I wasn't sure, but now I'am.
1) after quest is started and all the legwork is completed, you could go pop it as any job, I was gonna go go as my rng and was gonna enlist the help of a fellow paladin lvl 62, but I was told that it was possible to pop it as paladin, so I switched jobs and went there and popped with my paladin.

2) depending on the party's setup, this could be done with an alliance of 2 parties lvls 60-66 with no problems whatsoever, I tanked as pal 66 and never got in the yellow area of my hp or lost hate to worry about the tiger killing another member of alliance.

3) it will keep the mages in their toes, since in our battle, it kept spamming paralyga back to back with no rest in between.

Albeit, that a friend of mine Rdm/nin 75, tagged along to help us, the fact remains imo that the fight wouldn't have been that hard as made to believe by others posters, but anyway Thanks goes to Sacryd for helping me out in such a short notice, thanks bro' as well to my linkshell Vanadiel's Finest for coming along as well..

My alliance was formed outta of ls members we had, rdm 65, bst 62, warr 61, whm 60, thf 55, mnk 59 (who wnet afk and by the time he came back fight was over lol) and the others I can't recall right now, but were between the ranges of 55-61 and as this, we Pwned, kitty was mad that he came charging outta the cave to get whooped lol.

So basically if you need to go fight this cat, and you could pull a 2 party alliance of even jobs, you'd be on your way to beating this tiger fairly easy, overall was an easy battle for us.

he uses graviga and a sort of paralyga. the graviga cant be dodged no matter how far away you are, the paralyga can. if youre a rng, it might be better to stay out of the range so you dont get interrupted each time you try to shoot

this is for ranger AF3, the hunter socks, it has nothing to do in any way, shape or form with Koenigs armor.....period, end of story...Koenigs armor is dropped from the abjurations in Ru' Auvitau(sp). No abjurations or cursed pieces drop from him, he is a marker and NM mob in Ranger AF

Well, might I recommend that you look at the following two screen captures before hand >:-P

Photo 1
Photo 2

Perhaps you will go with a bit more caution than we did after seeing them :P

On a side note... I don't think we've all laughed at dying before... but this fight made everyone involved have a good chuckle. Darned tiger... I'll get him next time, I swear.

Im pretty sure this is the NM for the last peice of Ranger AF. I know that a Tiger in Xarcabard needs to be killed for it, and its not the 55 cap tiger, and this is the only other NM tiger there. So its for Rng AF boots.

Koenig is just german for 'king', it doesn't neccesarily mean this tiger has anything to do with the armor, just that the armor is kingly and he is the tiger king :) Although really, that's Byakko.
