Went 6 for 6 on this BCNM today. PT setup was 6 Beastmasters. We went in, charmed 6 bees, sent 4 of them at the NM, and the other 2 each took a stray bee. Eventually the NM dies. After that we release a bee one by one, killing them off after Leave. As an option you can use Call Beast after your pet bee has died to help finish off the other pet bees.

Notes: Beezlebub uses Paralyzga and Silencega, you want to bring Echo Drops. His 2 hour is Benediction. He can also use Pollen as a TP move and recovers up to 2500 HP. Also he spams Cure 5, either on himself, or any other bee.

i beat thi BC last nite, it is fairly hard and a mistake can be very deadly. we lost twice before we figured out a stratigy. out pt set up was 72 nin, 75 whm, 71+ rdm, 75 blm, 75 thf/nin and 72 rng(this was me, but i deleveled to 71 when we died the first time). FYI all 30 kindred seals BC are single pt, alliance BC cost 99 KS.
killing the beelzebub first resulted in death, it uses paralyzga and silencga which cause big problems when the whole pt gets hit with it, and heals itself far too much to be killed without everyone in the pt doing dmg ot it. the way we won was to open with sleepga, then to have the nin and whm duo the beelzebub while the blm and rdm traded off sleepgas every time the hellflys woke, and me and the thf killed them off 1 by 1.
any 74+ melee with a ninja sub can easily tank the hellflys, i had only utsu ichi and didnt have that much trouble tanking the hellflys, me and the thf kinda traded off tanking as my dmg got me more aggro untill SC. the hellflys use pollen to regen hp constantly, most took 2 SC to take down although sometimes you get lucky and one goes down easy.
once the hellflys are all dead, everyone regrouped and took on beelzebub. he had about 8000 hp and healed himself constantly. he uses cure 5 or pollen every few seconds, and also has bendiction which recovers over 5000 hp. took several SC with magic bursts from rdm and blm to take it down, im not sure if it ran out of mp or if we just got lucky and did enough dmg for it to die without having a chance to cure. the first time we won we killed it before it used bendiction, that time the nin had a decent dent in it already, blm manafonted and we SC as soon as we engaged it.

for how tough the bc is, the drops arent really worth it. we got a sash each time, pheonix feather and philosophers stone each time, some beetle blood and other tradeskill items like platinum ore, peterfied log, and coral fragments. i dont remember if any of the lv70 earrings dropped, i think one did, but none of them are really worth much anyway so i didnt pay much attention. no damascus ingots or damascene cloth droped(mysterytour has both listed), drops totaled to 1 to 2 mil per win, it would be a better idea to do a different KS30 bc that makes more money.

Absolutely none of the posts here have any useful info. I kind of doubt that any of the amateur theologists here have ever done this bcnm. Considering the sheer quantity of irrelevant information here a full strategy is probably too much to hope for. Can someone at least post if this is for 6 members or a full alliance?

a prophet tells the word of God. All of which will come true and is exact. If some Jews believe Jesus was a prophet, but not the messiah then they're contradicting themselves since Jesus said he was the prophet and so did John(another prophet) both being spoken through by God... if that made any sense...

and this is why "practicing" a religion today is pointless, too PC for anyone to get any real "faith"

sorry i had to say my 2 cents :P

1st off religion is used to control ppl including the kings / queens / gov. thats why it was invented
2nd all though out history you can not show me one fact that this is not true.
3rd when science was invented religion became obsulete
4th if you dont understand do some research :P

3rd when science was invented religion became obsulete

But apparently not as "obsulete" as your spell-check.

Now please pay attention and I'll try to use small words.

Part 1: "religion is used to control ppl including the kings / queens / gov. thats why it was invented"

Religion was never invented, since the beginning of time humans have had some notion that there is some sort of supernatural realm. You'll find this in every single ancient culture is the world. These religions were developed before any of these cultures were in contact with each other, meaning religion is something natural to human beings. Granted religion has been used to control people, but it was certainly never invented for that purpose.

Part 2: "all though out history you can not show me one fact that this is not true"

I believe I just did.

Part 3: "when science was invented religion became obsulete"

Much like religion, science was never "invented". Let's say that science is a "knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws." This would mean that science has been around as long as people have been seeking general truth. This means that science would also have been for as long as humans have been around. Science and religion have actually been mainly the same branch for most of human history. The Greeks departed from this, as well as have modern people since the Enlightenment (which was a movement to bring back Greek ideas). You would be rather surprised however to find out how many scientists actually believe in God.

Part 4: "if you dont understand do some research :P"

Why don't you take your own advice?

And by the way, Im currently a physics major looking to specialize in quantum mechanics. Anyone who thinks that religion replaces God lacks a basic understanding of the world.

I believe the distinction that the OP failed to make, was the difference between religion and organized religion. Organized religion is basically a system of control.

I wouldn't say the concept of religion is natural to human beings, but I would say it's one that strongly appeals to the human mind. We like to think there is a higher power, something more for us. It's the easiest possible answer to the question of "What is the meaning of life?" People will do anything to believe they've found that answer and can move on with their lives. It gives people direction, and therein lies the ultimate flaw, and that is that there will always be those who seek to take advantage of the influential powers of organized religion. They will abuse the power, and the people following will close their eyes and pretend it didn't happen or that it was justified by their diety. Why? Because they don't want to lose the answer to this most difficult question, the answer they've come to value more than anything else. Many people would sooner give up those they love than abandon this thing they believe in so much. In fact, I might even go so far as to call organized religion an addiction. Ever try to convince someone that God doesn't exist? Ever tried to convince someone they need to quit taking ecstacy? Ever tried to convince someone... to cancel their FFXI account? I've done all three and the reaction is pretty much identical. I've met parents who disowned their children over religious beliefs. In the most extreme examples, it can even cause harm to oneself, just look at the extremist muslims blowing themselves to pieces! The bottom line is that organized religion is a plague. Religion should not be organized, it should be freed.

Now for those who feel offended, I have not said anything about the existance of God or his/her/it's nature. I can't make those assumptions any more than you can. (Yes, I'm agnostic in case you couldn't tell.) I've no right to tell someone what they can and can't believe, I'm simply discussing the effects of organized religion on society.

I always thought Beelzebub was one of Satan's archdemons along with Behemoth and Leviathan. And Beelzebub is portrayed as a big, evil fly that spreads hatred and famine and disease and stuff...wow, Final Fantasy does have a lot of Biblical references, doesn't it?

The name of the orb is Atropos (not Atoropos), named after the Greek fate who cut the thread of life. Yay for learning?

Okay, there's an explanation behined 'Atropos' And 'Atoropos'
There's no 'tr' sound in Japanese, hence to the JPN players, it's 'Atoropos' and to NA it's 'Atropos' Both are right.

More learning! Baal-zebuh, mentioned in 2 Kings 1:2-5 is the god of Ekron. Beelzebuh (changed to Beelzebub because it means something like "Lord of the High Seat" otherwise, a title reserved for Solomon) is not mentioned until Mark, which is not part of the Old Testament. There is no jewish devil. Closest we get is Hasatan, "The Adversary," specifically mentioned in Job and a little bit elsewhere. Not necessarily a bad guy, his job is to point out all our flaws to G-d as he watches us. On Yom Kippur however, the day of atonement, when fates for the year are sealed, he switches to our side, arguing the good things we have done in that year.

Little long-winded, I just like to clear up misconceptions. Jews have no devil, no hell.

Actually...some jews believe in hell and the devil.
There are Orthodox Jews (most likely the ones you mean), Reformed Jews (beliefs may vary but all believe in God and that Jesus was a Prophet) and Messianic jews (who believe in the validity of Jesus as the son of God/the savior.
Messianic Jews practice customs from both the Christian Religion (which is actually an offshoot of Judiasm) and the Judaic Religion.

amen to that. Its all pointless every religion negates another. From that perspective we are all wrong. Humans will evolve one day beyond religious beliefs, but till then hang on tight.

That's a negative view of society as a whole. While there are a lot of differences in religion, it is ignorant to say that they negate each other.

Buddhism and Catholicism have many many many similarities. And it wasn't until Vatican two that people were able to accept it.

There are as many similarities in the ethical beliefs between religions as there are differences in historically accepted ideas. Some people practice religion for the ideals and morals rather then the stories.

The view that religion says we are "all wrong" may come from the perspective of someone who tries to please all religions. I know 90% of the things i do on a daily basis go against every major religion except for the one i follow. Christianity says i need to thank god for everything i do. I don't. Buddhism says i need to meditate to achieve enlightenment, i don't, but i'm still making progress. The nation of islam says i need to kill whitey, but i prefer not to.

can't go through life pleasing everyone, just need to choose the path and live by it, instead of trying to live every one of them. Because its better to be a specialist somewhere, then an ignoramus everywhere.

I suggest taking a philosophy of religion/ intro to philosophy course before you pretend to be a scholar. I know i'm not, and i know you aren't either.
