I just soloed this guy as a MNK30/WAR15. Equips are: Cougar Baghnakhs, Attar of Roses, Compound Eye Circlet, Reraise Earring (Not used), Mercenary's Gi, Battle Gloves, Windurstian Ring, Emperor Band, Purple Belt, Mercenary's Sitabaki, Mercenary's Kyahan. I brought along a Hi-Potion +1. I Boosted 6 times, used Dodge, and Focus. Spawned Guardian Treant and began the fight. At about 2/3 HP I used the Potion for safety. Hit Hundred Fists, then Comboed it. Fought for a bit, Comboed again, and just fought till it died. Had 290/613HP at the end of the fight.
Not to bad at level 49

Soloed this as a 49thf/24nin, was a bit rocky but took him down. It attacks pretty fast so shadows went down pretty quick, hits for about 40-50. Had to use quite a few bloody bolts to keep myself up, did get me down about halfway before I started bolting my HP back up. Very managable...but make sure you bring some bloody bolts and blind bolts (didn't have any blinds with me, but i'm sure if I did I could have kept shadows up more regularly).

I don't know if you'd be able to solo it. The player who posted below you died the first time, but succeded the 2nd time as MNK/DNC. I'd play it on the safe side and bring someone a bit higher then you to assist you. I'm sure there will be someone who's bored out of their mind and looking for something to destroy like I was last night. If you have Aht Urgan available, try /shouting there for help, or Lower Jeuno. No harm + no foul if you bring a 2nd player. :) I remember when I was raising my Samurai and I went to do this NM. A Level 75 Samurai came along and beat this thing to woodchips. He made it look easy, but I wouldn't have risked it on MY samurai alone. I don't have a death wish.

I don't know what server you are on but if anyone is on Fenrir and needs help with this, give Redpage a /tell. I'd gladly help you out. :)

soloable by 36 mnk/dnc i think
# Jun 13 2008 at 5:37 AM Rating: Decent

i just tried this as a galka 36 mnk/dnc i died but i'm gonna try again cause i think its doable. the mistake i made was using my tp on a combo cause i though that would finish it but it bary scratched the thing. update if i succeed. gonna wait for my warp cudgel to be ready again so it'll be at least 20 hours. comparable to the forger fight it hit for about half of what forger hit for but more often at a varying attack speed sometimes having up to 4 attacks at a time.
its accuracy was pretty poor but i had dodge on most the time. i was only hitting in 20s a hit so its a longer fight but i got it down to about 1/3 left so i'm gonna try again then update this.

well just tried again and won, i saved dodge and focus till i was about out of tp and seemed like it started hitting harder cause i was keep hp up fine then all of a sudden i was at half hp then i hit dodge, focus and tried to heal a bit then was about out of tp so hit hundred fists and won.

one other comment is i wouldn't recomend outpost warping there at this lvl its in the middle of a bunch of incredibly tough mobs i'd reccomend chocoboing from mea or jeuno
and if you're having trouble finding the tree the theres sort of a tunnel in the north part of k10 and then the tree is at l9

so happy hunting and good luck

I just soloed him as WHM59/BLM29 w/o any problem. It was a pretty simple fight. He had abt 2000 HP. I just killed Ancient Bats near the ??? to build TP to 300%. Then did normal buffs of Protect III, Shell III, Blink, & Stoneskin, then spawned the NM. I hit him with some simple enfeebs, and swung away w/ my Blessed Hammer opening w/ a Seraph Strike WS for 355 dmg and then spamming Fire (82~83 dmg) and Firaga (177 dmg). When Stoneskin did go down, he did hit pretty hard with some critical hits in the 60's and 70's.

I was a little worried going into this fight after reading all the lvl 40-48 people who had a hard time with this guy. I figured I'd try with my lvl 41 SMN, and I could always run if it came down to it. The fight was kinda like a weak avatar fight (solo 20). I cast Ifrit 4 times total. Three Double Punches and an Inferno at 25% finished him off. The Treant doesn't do enough damage to your ol red friend to get too worried, and you have plenty of space to run back to recast. I took one Yagudo Drink and used when I hit AF. Other than that, he hit me about three times for maybe 60-80 damage total.

I think it's kinda funny no one ever solos anything as a bard and posts about it. BUT, I'm going to try and solo this bad boy. I was able to solo DRG flag NM and lived to post about it at... I think @ 48, but you can check my post on it to be sure. The other NM for sam flag seems easy enough as it's a 33 mob. I'll keep you posted. (No pun intended)

Yeah it didn't happen... ah well. lol. I figured this guys probably harder than forger, forger wiped me after soul voice double paeon and redebuffs. Could have just been my skill in sword, but I missed one too many times. Almost had him but died with forger almost dead... best estimate he had about 2% hp left. One hit I watched him die after I died from requiem/dia/poison.

I just did this for two people as SMN49/WHM24.
Ifrit: Crimson Howl, then Double Punch (did around 619).

After Double Punch, he just smacked the mob around a few more times and it was over.

I buffed the party of 3 with Stoneskin, Hastega, Aerial Armor, Protect 1, Shell 1, and Barfira. All of it was up at the end of the fight, nothing had dropped or been used up. Nobody got hit. No cures were needed. Was at half mp at the end of the fight due to using the two Bloodpacts and about 15 seconds of keeping Ifrit out. Cake. I think the damage done by the two level 30 friends in the party was negligable compared to Ifrit, so i count this as being solo.

Have fun! (Imagine doing this with a Yagudo Drink at level 30SMN...solo. I bet it can be done!)

Pretty easy. First built up to 300% tp by killing weak mobs, then attacked it and used berserk warcry mighty strikes and rampage. Still, this can do some damage, hits hard and quick, and extremely difficult to keep utsu: ichi up. It only took abt 8 melee rounds before it died, and it had shaved off 300 hp out of 1200 in the process.

I killed it as Hume DRG 60/WAR 30 for a Galka MNK 30/WAR 15(?). I brought 6 Hi Potions, but didn't need them - didn't even come close to needing them. I suspect a non-Taru (sorry) DRG 60 could easily solo this NM.

I would estimate it's LVL at 45 maybe.

Hi everyone,
I was wonderin if i can do it like this, use the hatchet to cut the branch then the Guardian Treant comes out. Can i maybe cut the branch hurry up and trade the item with the ??? and die will that work because i cant get anyone to help me out with my samurai quest and the first time we tried we all got murked. We brought it down 75% and then we all died so i was wonderin if i can just trade it really quick and then fight i dont kno if it will work

Interesting idea. I suspect that will not work for two reasons:

1) That thing might kill you before you can trade the sprig.

2) I suspect that SE won't allow this. My guess is that the ??? disappears (or becomes inactive) until after the Treant is killed.

Try it though and see.

PLD/WAR 50 Soled it, so easy^^

I used a Tavnazian Taco, Yagudo Drink and 2 X-Potion, but I wasted the potions^^U (whit Cure III or Cure II you have enough).

Whit Protect III and Defender, it hit me in range of 7-20 dmg (I had 482 Def).

Really easy^^


Soloed as 47 Thf/Nin

I took this on solo as a 47 Thf/Nin. My strategy: Use acid/sleep/bloody/blind bolts for the usual, cast Utsusemi at recast and sleep/SA when possible.

So I pop the thing and it actually takes quite a few tries to eat my shadows. The problem is, sleep bolts wont hit it at all. My marksmanship is not capped, but I know it's in the lower 40's because it's capped during BCNM40's and Ballista.

So it eats all shadows, I go to recast and it interrupts me. I try again, it hits me and interrupts again. I try again, same thing. So now I'm at about 45% HP and it's probably close to 60. This is where I freak out and start spamming bloody bolts. Surprisingly, almost all of them hit it and my TP starts gaining fast. After a while it finally gets low and I finish it off with 50% HP or so remaining.

So, to any 47 Thf's that want to solo this, BRING BLOODY BOLTS and you should do just fine. (Also try not to freak out if everything doesn't go as planned.)

I just beat the Treant in a party of three, myself as a lv 30MNK, and with a 40BLM and 43PLD. It was a cakewalk - over almost before it started. I'd been a bit leery because of all the posts here saying it's so hard for a 50 to solo, but for a party it's pretty easy. I'd say if you can get a few friends in their 30s it'll be over before you know it.

For those who don't want to solo, two friends and myself just took him easily; I'm 30MNK/15WAR, and had a 43PLD/21WAR and 40BLM/20RDM with me. The hardest part was getting there after our chocobos timed out because they had to wait a bit for me. The Treant was easy-peasy, and we hardly dipped into the yellow even with the BLM's healing skill undercapped. The whole fight was over in about a minute.

As the title indicated, I just soloed this as a Tarutaru RDM50/BLM25 in order to complete the SAM Quest, and it was exceedingly easy. Here's a rundown of my strategy:

Buffs: Protect III, Shell II, Refresh, Blink, Stoneskin, Phalanx, Ice Spikes, Enfire, Haste.
Debuffs: Blind, Slow, Paralyze, Rasp, Bio II.
Items: Tavnazian Taco, Yagudo Drink
Skills: Sword 112, Evasion 107, Parrying 71, Shield 83, Enhancing 143, Enfeebling 151, Elemental 136.

Ate the Taco and cast Protect & Shell, then recovered to full MP. After that, began casting remaining buffs and used the Yagudo Drink to avoid spending any more MP before the fight.

After spawning the Treant, just pasted it with all the debuffs then slogged away at it. Proved to be very very easy - although the attack speed was high, the low accuracy (both natural and from debuffs) combined with high trigger rate of Paralyze caused it to do very little damage. It caused so little damage in fact, that Stoneskin did not drop until it was down to around 5% HP. Could have easily wasted it with Fire II but opted to not use any elemental magic for the entire fight, and simply recaste stoneskin and finished it off. I'd estimate that the entire fight lasted around 3-3.5 minutes (judging by wearoff of timed buffs).

Think that pretty much sums it up - if anyone has any further questions, please post a reply. ^^

First of all, make sure you choco there unless you're level 60 or above. The leeches and funguars checked to EP, and the one Golem I saw was DC.

There are two targets on the huge tree at the right spot. One is unlabeled, and the other is ???. Use the hatchet on the ??? while standing on the rock below it to spawn the treant.

Food was Tavnazian Taco, and I used a Yagudo Drink when I hit 90 MP, just to be on the safe side.

He hit me for 10-20 per, but there were a lot of criticals for 40-50. Just buff with Protect/Shell and use your best offensive gear. I had a Tactician Magician's Espadon +1 (which is cheaper than the normal one for some reason) and I would recommend this over the Honor Sword. Just Flash and Cure III like you normally would and remember to trade the Sacred Sprig to the ??? after he's dead.

As 43 BST/21 BLM.. thats right.. subbing BLM.. I was xping in Zi Tah, and someone in his 30's came in asking for help to fight this mob. No one responded so I decided I would take a crack at it. I grabbed an EM shroom pet for a tank and we popped the mob. This thing was a pushover.. even easier than a goblin trader. Poison, bio, and shock all stuck, and after that we just pounded it into the ground without taking any hits. I am confident I could have soloed it with no problems. Too bad I didnt have the sam quest activated for myself.

Ok look - I like to take risks and help anyone if possible so, I'm used to putting my life on the line. Question is - Could I solo this as 46 WHM?

I know you are all gonna be like O.o but, just asking b4 I lose exp without knowing if I had a chance.

Oh and by the way - My WHM gear is pretty good, dont worry.

I killed the Guardian Treant solo as a 47PLD/23WAR. I have mostly Iron Musketeer+1 armor and Sphene rings +2 VIT each. I used a momento muffler to raise my VIT to a total of 30. I didn't need to use my 2hr but I did use one hi-ether. I could have skipped the ether and used the 2hr instead. I didn't bother to raise my TP before the fight and I think I got off 3 or 4 Seraph Blade WS. Fight wasn't overly difficult. Happy hunting!

I never actually bothered to get SAM but now that I am level 65 RDM I fgure what the ****. I asked my linkshell if they thought I could solo GT and they said they thought it would be close. On my way to Zi'tah I saw my lvl 62 DRK friend sitting around so I ask if he feels like coming to give a hand. The DRK ended up tanking because I couldn't hold hate over him.

The actual fight was pathetic, this guy hits like a ***** Willow, he was down in less than a minute and did less than 100 damage to the DRK. This thing can be soloed fairly easily by anything higher than lvl 50.

Me and my buddy tried this guy last night. I'm a lvl 45 smn he's a lvl 46 whm. After summoning Ifrit 3 times and kiting this mob it was to easy. My whm buddy had his Carby help helping, but Ifrit did most of the work. The mob didn't even touch us (thanks to Garuda's Aerial Armor).

Yeah, PLD17 sub, so sue me, I was nervous and figured having Cure II might help.

Well after wondering how to reach the ??? for a while I happened to notice I could run up the rocks near the ???. ^^;; Popped the treant, it proceeded to aggro, lumber over, miss a couple of times, and then finally connect for 38 damage. IIRC I had a crit hit me for around 61 at one point. But most of the time, he was whiffing (net Evasion was around 153).

Long story short, I used Bio II, one Drain, two Cure IIs, and ended down about 100HP, and I was in my "attack" gear instead of my "defense" gear. Worried for nothing. -.- The most annoying thing if you're lower-level is that its attacks are really fast, so you're getting hit (or fanned ;) about once every second on average. Can make casting a pain if your skill isn't high enough to not be interrupted.

I soloed this a couple of weeks ago as 50RDM/BLM.

At first, I was a little hestitant to try it, since I had little more trouble than expected soloing Forger. But I decided to go for it ( while preparing my {Chainspell} + {Warp} macro :p ) anyways.

The hardest part of soloing this guy was figuring out how to reach the **** ??? -_-. I had found it and was about 2 steps too far from being able to use a Hatchet on it. I ended up running around the zone for about 20 minutes until I realized you could simple step up to the ??? by stepping on the root right in front of it >.>

But on to the fight... this guy was ridiculously easy. The usual RDM solo strategies worked here ( Aquaveil, Blink, Stoneskin, Refresh ). Paralyze was *very* effective on this mob, although it wore off fairly quickly.

This mob is also very sleepable, if anyone was wondering. ^^

I was in Zi'tah yesterday when some warrior asked for help. I told him to sit tight while i (PLD51) disposed of the mob. got scared at first since i never realy fought it before, didn't know it's strength and it was hitting increadibly fast. It died leaving me with low HP, even after spending all my mp on cures (whm sub 50mp extra). It's doable, but i wouldn't recommend it. If the fight were to take longer, it would have surely killed me.

Wasn't easy.....but I solo'd it. I will never try anything like that again. I had 4HP and 0MP left when it died. I suggest 50+ melee to even attempt this one. Good luck!

This guy was easy...

Me a 44RDM/22BLM and my friend a 45THF/22NIN took it in 3 minutes tops. I tanked it after he Hid/SATA on it behind me after I spawned it. Made sure I always had on blink/stoneskin/phalanx/refresh/protect2. I never had to cure but at the end of the battle I had 34/595 MP left after nukes and buffs. Piece of cake.

might be hard, but if 2 hour and get is some good shots, and dodge a lot, you may squeak by. Just to be on the safe side, take a healer with you.

Soloed him a week ago 51drg/war. Penta Thrusted him to death basically. Funny part was everyone said I should wait till I have a full party to beat him because he was so hard.
