Tried to duo this as Sam/Dnc and Drg/Sam. We both had Polearms (Engetsuto for me, his Mezraq or one of those fork lookin things.) figuring that like all Jellies he would only have a partial resistance to piercing damage..

Huh.. yeah.. right..

Things didn't go real smooth as the first Fluid Spread cold bloodedly murdered both of our NPCs and severely damaged both of us. Luckily, he didn't seem to do it that often and we were both able to keep Seigan and Third Eye up to avoid most of his other attacks, as I Slowly healed us both back with Curing Waltz II. I stayed mainly at 200 or more TP, Meditate being ready whenever I would drop close to 100. But Eventually our luck ran out as he did Fluid Spread, putting us both in red (away from the ghosts, thank god) and before I could get us both back into safe range he did it again and killed me, the Drg followed soon after, leaving the mob at maybe 18%.

But, at about 45% a Bst comes over and asks if we're going for the ring, which I was. I said yes, and if he wanted to help out I would be more than happy to give him a lot at it. He either didn't hear me, or did and just didn't respond. So, as soon as I fall he charms a bat, and as soon as the mobs name hits yellow, sicks the bat on it. Now, I know that's not against the rules or anything, but.. just another knife at me while I was down.

So he runs off with the mob, I /tell him asking if he could raise is when finished. No response. Eventually the Drg logged his wife on who came Dnc/Whm and raised us. But not after the Bst fell and had to call a raise of his own. Karma, maybe? But he did try and make up for it after he and his rdm friend killed the mob. He said he didn't get the drop too. But, bah.. next time I'm going blm and grabbing all three of my duo partners and we're going to show him my little buddy.. Flare.
You call me a masterless man..
You are wrong..
I am my own Master.

I was a little worried about camping him when reading some of the testimonials here. God bored one day and figured I'd at least give it a shot as a ninja.

This is a tremendously easy fight. I went /rdm for fastcast and MAB, wore INT gear I had laying around (moldavite, tamas ring, etc), and macroed staves into my ni nukes and enfeebles. I had no special gear on as most of my ninja stuff is on mules. Opti hat, boxors mantle, and af2 legs (can't remember if it was night time or not) were my only eva pieces. The other stuff was just makeshift junk (and when I say junk I mean it......root sabots, tavnasian ring, tactics pearl, grandiose chain, etc).

Nukes were doing around 260 per hit. Although I had to recast jubaku 3 times, hojo lasted the whole fight. He only did two tp moves the whole time, a digest was one, the other was at like 8% so I had stopped watching by then. He probably only took 4-6 shadows the entire fight. Easily only used Ni and probably could have only used ichi.

I would wager that any /nin job could solo this providing you had a way to damage it without giving it TP doing 8 damage per melee hit.

finally got off my **** and camped this guy for my ring so here is my story.

Total camp time: ~2hours
Total Fight time: ~8minutes
Went as: 75NIN/WHM (wanted the teles when I was done)
Gear setup: full evasion with a splash of magic dmg and haste, SH+1, walahra turban, moldavite earring/ninjutsu earring, Earth staff for emergencies, ninja hakama, astral rngx2 (in case I needed mana for heals/SS), Corse cape, fuma kyahan, survival belt, evasion torque, bomb core (just what i was wearing).

To spawn him I simply killed the mousse in the room with te haunts and the one in the hallway right before that, ignore the bats since they wont agro you (unless you /heal).

Katans did around 11-14 on it (only hit a couple times to see what they did) ninjutsu spells were slamming for 140-150 each with a very rare resist doing ~75. I kept him fully debuffed with slow/para/blind/pois and just continually spun the wheel. With just the little bit of haste and reapplying debuffs and utsusemi I rarely had to wait for a cooldown to be ready. I fought him in the hallway right before the room with the haunts, nothing agroed or respawned on me other than the bats so it was cake. And even then those mobs cant hit sh*t and fighting sewer+ 1 moouse wouldnt be hard at all.

Only a few attacks got through, he hit me for around 80 (earth staff ftw) and did fluid spread 4 times, not one got through. Right at the end I tossed a Cure III on myself just in case another attack got me so I wouldnt drop into yellow and agro the haunts. All in all a rather easy fight. It took around ~17 rotations through the entire elemental wheel to down him. Didnt eat any food or meds. I think /rdm would help a bit for the Magic atk bonus but it was still easy. The key is dont deal melee damage to him just magic and he wont spam TP attacks. 1/1 Jelly Ring, yay! :)

rdm/nin vs. Sewer Syrup
# Feb 05 2008 at 7:19 AM Rating: Decent
Here's my brief Sewer Syrup camping experience. The place was empty, killed the mousse PH and haunts next to it once, then Sewer Syrup pops. Just to be clear, this is a very easy fight for 75 RDM/NIN. Sewer Syrup didn't get through shadows/stoneskin once. However, in a moment of idiocy I did wipe. When the haunts repopped I was unprepared and they aggro'd. I slept both of them, but not before losing way too much MP/HP. This was the only trouble I ran into. I got back up and moved down the hall, killing the mousse further down the hall. I then pulled Sewer Syrup down away from the haunts. This time there were no problems, no aggro, and no damage. The Jelly Ring dropped first time, so I won't be back.

This was a very easy fight as long as you stay away from haunts/mousse. The bats in the area will not aggro a level 75. As rdm/nin, I kept up stoneskin, phalanx, enfire, haste, etc. All I casted on him was poison II, dia II, and slow II. If you clear the mousse down the hallway, you should be able to easily defeat Sewer Syrup before any repops. And stay away from the haunts :)

1/1 on this guy.

Girlfriend Coralee (PLD75) and I (RDM75) camped this NM last month. We killed off the placeholders as they popped and waited about 2-3 hours for it to finally pop. Nothing too remarkable about the fight. It was long, as it has high physical defense. I {Back line job.}'d it landing the usual RDM enfeebs/DoTs including Para 2 Slow 2, kept Phalanx 2 on Coralee as she meleed it down. 300% Spirits Within was resisted hard core. It didn't hit that hard and the AoE fluid toss or whatever was not a problem, Stoneskin absorbed it all and Coralee took minimal damage. At the 1/2 way mark I Divine Sealed + Converted + Cure 4'd then popped Chainspell + Bliz 3 for the win. Dropped 6000g to both of us, Slime Oil and Jelly Ring!

Good luck to those camping the NM! =)

solo rdm/nin

I just got this ring today. Was a simple fight to solo.
I went as rdm/nin75 and killed ph for about 2hours then it spawned. First i grav, bind and nuked it til my mp was allmost gone. This put the mob left with around 50% hp.
Then i converted, buffed up and started meeling it. i did this to save mp in case i couldnt finish it with two MPbars of nukes. It also helps avoiding links since you dont need to move around much.
it was easy to straight tank. As the other mentioned just try to have your shadows up when he uses Fluid spread. One time it got true and it knocked of my stoneskin and put me at 600hp with barwater and protect/shell up. Other then that he just hits like a normal mob with an occasional double attack. When it got to 10% i finished him off with a thunder3.
Think the fight lasted for 12 minutes.
Hope this helps.

Tip to any RDMs planning to enspell this to death, even with a 1 damage dagger it WILL take 2-3 points of damage as well as the enspell so it will get TP, just a heads up ^^ (still easy tho)

Soloed this as 75Rdm/37Nin, fairly easy fight. Keeping Sewer heavily enfeeb is key, also keeping ss and shadows up is necessary. Very weak to spells, also haveing enfire, and Blaze spikes up help's alot also. Suggest running him to the zone if it gets hairy. Good Luck 1/1
SS Solo

Soloed this as 73 nin/rdm using rdm sub for fastcast and magic attack bonus. Spent about 20 minutes killing the three Mousses in the area till SS popped. Like the other posts have noted, only the Haunts and the Mousse aggros in this area if you're 70+, bats in the area will aggro if you're below 70. My primary mode of attack is using my elemental ni wheel to deal full dmg on the slime mobs.

The fight with SS is easy enough. A typical evasion setup (for both nin and thf; i wore ohat, scorp harness, evasion torque, scouters rope, and corse cape) is good enough to avoid the majority of the hits. Blind, slow, and para ninjitsu landed without a problem. In my fight, SS has not landed a hit on me even with fluid spread. Fluid spread is indeed something to worry about since you could potentially get blood aggro from the undead if you get hit by it. However, Utsu fully absorbs the dmg, 1-2 shadows for me, 2-3 shadows for a typical melee the 2nd time i fought it (I believe this has to do with high ninjitsu skill talk in the nin forums, unsure atm about this). Physical attacks is pretty much worthless and I recommend not to melee on him since it could feed him tp to spam fluid toss. I simply disengaged and spammed the elemental wheel. The fight took about 7 minutes for me and drained about 15-18 tools of each element.

Links will be your biggest concern when you fight SS. Before you pull SS, clear the tunnel of additional mousse and take SS down the hall and fight there. Fighting near the room will blood aggro the haunts since their range is pretty far. Anyways, this guy is a pushover in the solo perspective.

I dont see a lot of PRACTICAL info on here about the mob, so I thought I'd offer some. THe MOb doesnt seem to be time based, and is 100% lottery of the 4 mousse placeholders around the room with 2 haunts in I-11 (and H-11 for PH) but the SS will ONLY pop IN the haunt room. Anyway, it took 8+ hours of killing PH's for him to pop since last ToD <.< I guess I was very unlucky.

In any case, Despite what anyone says, SS is a VERY hard solo fight, but is CAKE as a duo (preferrably RDM, BLM, or Nin as main attacker, and a WHM as healer). Why so hard solo? Well, unless you have a TON of mp and an easy way of getting them back fast (LOTS of ethers?), you will run out of MP from curing yourself from Fluid Spread - which eats all shadows, and can still do 400-600 dmg, even with phalanx, stoneskin, Protect IV, and Barwater. Theres really no effective way to avoid this - just have a healer on hand to back you up and hope that it doesnt do it much. Also, obviously, he is EXTREMELY resistant to all phsyical attacks, I think at MAX, your attacks will do 10-20% what they normally would on a normal dmg mob, but if you are an RDM, "En" spells do great, since he's very weak to magic.

Anyway, his acc is pretty bad, and doesnt do anything special other than Fluid Spread, so the less melees on him, giving him tp, the better. Bind didnt hold very well at all (a few seconds with 304 enfeebling magic skill), but he seems to take at LEAST 1.5x normal dmg from all magic, maybe more. I KIND OF did this fight solo, but with a little help from a whm - when I pulled him, I was going to pull to the zone, but she was aggrod as I was pulling it, and died before I had even hit SS once. ABotu halfway through the fight, the WHM got up, in weakened state, and cure'd me with what little MP was left, which I greatly appreciated... There wasnt much left of the fight after that - I was running out of MP, but refreshed the WHM, and asked her to Cure V me when I convert - she did so, and I started nuking with my full mp - Thunder III 757 dmg, Blizzard III 694 dmg, and it was over :) Which to ME, was impressive, since I"m elvaan (lowest INT of all races, even lower than galka) and was set up for evasion/tanking, not nuking (No moldavite, INT+, etc). Anyway, I want to say thank you to Talna, the WHM - it was very brave to get up and help while weakened, and I might not have won the fight without her :) The RIng dropped (it's not 100%, but is at least 50%), in what was a very fun, but challenging fight.

We were 64PLD/WHM (me) and 71THF/NIN (Dors, my hero)...

Sewer Syrup popped after killing two mousse place holders. We cleared the hallway and got TP off some bats. Next, we buff, put Barwater up, Regen and the fun begins! This thing had mega-defense and it was pretty much just Dors killing it while I try to keep us alive. Long story short...our NPCs die, I die, Dors lives, Sewer Syrup dies, we each get 9k gil, and I get meh Jelleh Ring!!! yay!

Oh I forgot to mention... Dors ended up using a stack of bloody bolts >.> My hero ;D

So I started killing Mousses (Moussi?) around 2pm Hawai'i time. Ended up going until 7pm. . .I was starting to get ****** off and my PLD went away on me so me (RDM/WHM) tele-mea'd him to safety. Came back to see SS was up. Had to kill a Mousse to get to it. Was a really good/easy fight. Hardly took any dmg. Funny thing though my enfire did more damage than my acutal melee. Evisceration did around 69 while Gust Slash did like 225~ lol. I'm thinking this guy gets hit like he has the ring on. Good luck on others who camp it. I hope you dont have to wait 5 hrs for it to spawn.

just got this. camped SS for about 3 hours and he finally popped. soloed it as a 75 nin/war. he's not much harder than the mousse's except you do less phys dmg. Jubaku, hojo, and kur all land easily so he should not touch you with a full eva setup. Did not even have to use ichi. Just make sure you bring your wheel powders so that you kill him before mousse's repop.

i got a 12k gil bonus in addition to the ring drop

Tanked the Syrup as a THF74/NIN37, with help from a SMN74/WHM37 and WHM63/BLM31. Took less than 2 hours to get him to pop. We had to drag him to the Ronfaure zone because the WHM would have gotten aggro from bat repops. Pulled with Carby, snuck up and ran to zone, Syrup followed then we got to work. Very easy fight, I barely got hit with 250 evasion skill plus 25 from equipment. Kept Barwatera and Stoneskin up and the WHM out of AOE range and it went very smoothly, nobody was ever in any danger. Now I got a new toy for my 63 PLD. Smiley: smile

By the way, Carby's Meteor Strike or whatever it is called did more damage than Ifrit's fire attack (can't recall the name now). I'd guess the Syrup has around 12k to 13k hp (parse had him at 11343 but that doesn't include DoT spells).

I got this just yesterday, and man was it a great experience. Many thanks to Orofin and Aable of Odin for helping me get this thing!

We spent quite a lot of time killing Place holders, and I managed to get claim with a flash. It was quite a mistake of the other hunters to clear the room so the adrenaline-packed Paladin with flash could get it, heh.

Anyway, thanks again to Orofin and Aable, and good luck to anyone who wants a Jelly Ring!

we went and were camping it and the room has haunts so we kept killing them and the mousse's that u are suppsoe to kill in area i-11 and h-11
had fun with it. then after 2 hours it poped we had it half way and then started spamming its ws and rdm died then we all died. hped to whitegate and picked up 2 75 whm and a 75 nin rdm left
nin and 1 whm died ont he way cause fell in trap door but we ended up killing it with a pld75 pld62 drg70 and a whm75 took about 10 min it has about 10,000 hp

Just solo'd it last night as 75 bst/nin. Took about 2 hours, but it was a fun fight.

Courier Carrie did good damage, but the mousses proved to be better pets with their TP drain attacks occasionally hitting for over 250dmg.

Only mousses and ghosts aggro at 75. The bats were a non-issue and I only used them as pets in the very beginning when things were a little hectic from me figuring out how to beat this guy.

I was never in any real danger. My hp went into the yellow a few times in the beginning stages of the fight just from me not being used to fluid spread vs shadows.

As long as you have gaudy harness and 2 rune axes, there's no reason to go bst/whm (just bring sneak oils). bst/nin was extremely safe and easy.

I'd imagine if I dragged it downstairs and used leeches for pets the fights would have gone a little faster, but the mousses worked out just fine.

RDM/NIN can solo this mob, I did it. It takes a long time. I lost first try because I equipped too much attack gear and ran out of mp too quickly. My HP was sandy, so I hp, switched to mp gear and ran back, it was still up. Fight was long (I converted twice), but a lot of fun.

62 pld and this ring looked really really good! SO obiously i needed to have. first 3 attemps i heard RDM/Nin can solo like avatar (i need better sources). first time i lose my sneak while fighitin a mousse and link and all this other garbage. second time RDM/NIN didnt have time (i dont think he antisipated a long camp) and we just left. 3rd time we finally c him. a paty of **** was also campin but we got claim (paladin flash!). but we link 2 haunts ansd a jelly and the **** refuse to help and watch us die (and they think american players r bad -.-;;;). at this point im REALLY ****** cuz i worked on gettin 200k to hire help (never accually payed any1 cuz they all failed). so after nearly having a nervous breakdown shoutin in jeuno a rdm tells me that RDM/NIN cant solo and shed help me for free. soon i have a 12 alliance down in the sewers campin. it took 5 hours into the early morning but we got (by then we were 7). battle is easiar then camping.

Tips for camping:

Its a lottery pop of the mousse in the haunt room.

Ring is 100% drop (some people say 80).

keep room clear of all mobs including bats.

(Thanks goes to the dead linkshell SeraphsPride for doin this for free)

I have personally killed this hting twice once for my brother at the time a lvl 62 pld (it was his x-mas present lol) andonce for myself. As was stated before rdm can solo this but if people are there like he was i blew my mp on keeping him a live in the end we both died.

We hp'ed ran back and i told him to just worry about links and i soloed.

The dagger is a good idea as its the en-spells that do the damage i was using a joyese (forgive spelling) and kicked it *** when i didnt blow 300+ mp healing a pld lol. oh and i was rdm/blm i dont like using nin sub lol. <-- freak i know.

I recently decided to skill up shield and parry because as RDM my skills were 130 shield and 100 parry, but cap around 200 or so. My plan was to skill off of mandragoras in The Boyhada Tree using Genbu's Shield, Umbra Cape, and Jelly Ring along with a /war for Defender and Tavnazian Tacos. The only problem was I had no ring. So, I finally finished leveling /nin to 37 and then went and camped this guy for 2hrs, killing slimes to reduce linkage before he finally popped. I claimed him no problem and soloed him until eventually repops started happening, at which point I alternated sleep I and sleep II until the end of the fight when I got my drop and warped out.

Enspell damage using hornetneedle on this thing was dealing a ton of damage. I ended the fight never feeling particularly threatened.

If you go and have a rdm/nin helping, don't feel bad if they ask you to work on link control, back-up cures, or just stay out of the way. Many times when I take someone to "help" fight something I can solo, they seem to either suck all my MP away curing them and we both die, or they get hate and die before I can cure them and I end up raising them after the fight anyway.

In the 3 trips to The Boyhada Tree since I have had my ring, I've found I can very safely solo ~20 EP mandies all hitting me at the same time. That has raised shield up to 174 and parry to 141 (net gain was about 40 skill on each). Getting this ring is defnintely worth it for other RDM's who have the same plan.

I had a humbling experience with sewer syrup. I was lvl 62 at the time and one of the plds in my ls was asking for help camping him so im like ok sure...we started with a 75thf/nin a few high lvl blms a whm and 3 plds one being me....camped him for about an hour b4 he popped but by that time 2 of the blms had left and the thf/nin had fallen asleep at the keyboard or something...anyways we pulled him and started fighting the ****** and not 30 secs into the fight a jelly spawns right on top of us...which about the time the blm died and the thf/nin finally woke up....so then we are fighting and for some reason i get hate and get PWNT by syrup then he proceeded to refuse to hit anyone else except for the second pld kills him also....we get another jelly add...so we up to 2 jellys and sewer syrup which is when the 3rd pld and the whm go down from aoe...so the thf/nin is left...and he proceeds to beat down sewer syrup then moves on to both jellys and kills them all by himself...it took awhile but thats just another example of why bloody bolts rock.

Our LS decided to surprise me by getting me in their group and camping this ring. Took about 50 minutes to pop. We had a RDM/NIN solo this while we managed the pops around her, and she decimated this thing no problem. ^^ I have a GREAT new addition to my gear, and it gets me one step closer to 75!

Special thanks to the Kupobos LS on Midgarsormr who gave me one **** of a great gift and taking the time out of their busy schedule to help me out in getting this. =) And a special thanks to the RDM/NIN Artemismu, Fergus, Poodles, Malkavian, Sodara, and Makaniko for all their assistance.

Tonto Obtains the Jelly Ring. (**)
PLDS bow down to the mages on this one, get a few high lvl BLM freinds to manaburn the Sewer Syrup for you and just stay out of the way (luckily my LS has the best BLMs ever). If you still want to use a mellee party good luck and enjoy the sewer water cause you will be face down in it.

Just killed this slime as my BLM75/RDM37, had to use Manafont.
Easy to Gravity/Bind, resisted Sleep (but it was Lightsday, and I didn't try to sleep again)

Spawned inside the room with the two Haunts, and I have seen it spawn inside the room several times and not really wander around much, so probably that is where it spawns no matter where the placeholder wanders.

I nuked it 12582(overkill) and one Drain for 144 healed, so I believe the NM has ~12000hp. It takes roughly +50% damage from magic (1062hp Blizzard IV on the placeholder Mousses, 1578hp damage Blizzard IV on the NM, both on Lightsday)

At level 75 I received 42xp from the NM, 23-34xp from the placeholder Mousses, as well as 12000g, the ring, and 2 slime oils.

took about an hour to spawn, 10 or 12 minutes to kill
I suggest: Redlotus-->Blade: Jin--->Holy MB for 280
So you can finally find a use for Holy :)

Sewer Syrup popped after killing off two rounds of Mousse spawns, so took roughly 40 minutes. I was doing some merc work for a 60-ish PLD by soloing this NM. Went as 75RDM/NIN and this fight wasn't too hard, but took a very long time. At least 15 minutes I'd say. I have capped sword skill, merits, and a Suppanomimi earring, and my attacks weren't doing crap to this guy. Average 10-15 damage per hit not factoring in my enspells (luckily the additional effect of Enfire was hitting harder than my regular hit). Definitely just a matter of outlasting this slime, as RDM nukes aren't powerful enough to be worth the MP needed to do significant damage.

Just be ready for a long fight if you plan to solo, and use Spirits Within. I have a Martial Anelace in main hand so I could do a full Spirits every 200tp.

This can be a very long pop just be patient. I have seen it pop in 15 minutes and when i did mine it was 5 hours. I think Genhanan said it best with he's a "whenever the **** I feel like it" lottery spawn. Awesome ring, thanks to my LS mates and friends who endured it with me ^^

I soloed this fairly easily as 72nin/war earlier today. I had to kill mousse for roughly 2 hours before pop, though a good skillup opportunity.

85% of my total damage was from my elemental Ni's, so if you plan to solo this as nin, make sure you have at least 20 of each elemental powder and keep up your enfeebles as they stuck every time making the fight even easier.

Total damage taken was about 180 from a fluid toss immediately after my shadows were dropped for a split second. Overall a very easy fight for a competent 70+ nin with the right equip. This will be a nice ring for some specialized tanking like gods or HNM's where you want -physical damage equip or to put in your defender macro for the times blink is down with no recast available yet.

Nin 75, Rng 75, Sam 75, Pld 75, Drk 75, Thf 37, War 37, Dnc 37, Drg 37, Whm 37, Mnk 20, Blm 18

Did this yesterday. Got there with Nin70, Brd 70, Whm 70, Whm 55 and me (Pld 63). There was a group there that said they had just finished killing it 10 minutes before. We camped there, pulling all mobs that popped, and waited. Took 4 and a half hours after arriving for NM to pop. Easy fight, didn't really take all that long and Nin took not one hit. Only had one Mousse pop and aggro during the fight. Great ring!

Thanks to Asianprincess, Mossman, Shiny and Essox for helping me out.

I got this ring today. We stopped by and did 7-1 for me. Its spawn time is 30 mins - 3 hours idk wtf that 9 hours guy is talking about. I spent about 1 hour there and got it. I think its a 100% chance drop. hope this helps. oh yeah we killed it with a 60 blm, 75 thf, 62 pld (me) , and a 67 whm. we pulled it to the east ronfaure zone so the blm could go all out while the thf didnt have to worry about keeping hate that much.
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.

First time I killed him, he spawned inside of an hour. Second time (helping a LS PLD get his), we ended up waiting just under 8 hours to get him to spawn.

From what everybody's said, he seems to just be a "whenever the **** I feel like it" lottery spawn.

I'll be needing that luck there Cozz! Last night showed how much I need this ring! I died 2x yesterday. One time RDM accidentally attacked another mob by accident which lead to everyone's death then next died cuz our main healer.. rdm/whm ran out of mp and so did I. /sigh but oh well. Hope this sucker will be worth it.

-5% physical dmg:
I think it's out of discussion that this ring is way better than having 2 +VIT rings.
1 Chrysoberyl ring (or maybe a Vigor if you have the money) combined with the Jelly ring.

Now combine those with an Earth staff (my skill lvl is 193 right now) and mobs will hit like girls.

I'm 62PLD right now and Toramas hit me for about 55-80 on regular hit and 130-145 on critical. (Earth staff equipped - still 2 Chrysoberyl rings ;_; )
But now it's time to get that **** ring and skill up staff even more.

Congrats all on your rings. Got mine at lvl 62. We went as 62PLD, 66WHM, 73BLM, and 65SAM. Long story short, we got owned twice in a row. >.< Then fate intervened. A Japanese 75NIN came by as we were all laying there as rotting corpses after fight #2 and asked if we needed help. We gladly accepted. He had WHM subbed and was awsome enough to run all the way back to sandy and then all the way back as 75NIN/WAR. With him tanking we totaly beat that jelly down.(revenge is sweet) I got my ring and thanked the NIN about 500 times. It was alot of fun. Best part was just that I managed to get it the night before I deployed to Iraq. (Where I still am atm ~.~ ) Anyhoo, who ever that NIN was <Thank you> For the 501st time!!
66 rdm solo?

I went to spawn this alone today as 66 rdm/nin with melee gear, focusing on accuracy and evasion. Mobs were no problem, took roughly 3-5 mins to kill mousses. I do believe the only placeholder is the mousse in the room with the haunts. I used a reraise gorget and pulled the nm after it had spawned and did great until blind wore off, then i was pummeled lol. This leads me to believe that had i been using elusive earrings and scorpion harness the extra 14 evasion would have given me the edge needed to outlast this thing... Either way tho i got help from a 75 nin after i got back up and he tanked while i stone III'd for about 450 a pop. easy fight after he got there. Very very cool guy. Hope there is something useful in this post for you all.
