Summary

The Rhinostery has developed a new "mini" tuning fork of ice. Ringing it upon the protocrystal in Fei'Yin will open the path to a one-on-one battle with the beast that awaits inside. However, only summoners are allowed to take up this challenge.

Walkthrough

Things to remember:

  • This is a solo battle.
  • There is a level 20 cap on this battle.
  • There is a 15-minute time limit.
  • You can only use Carbuncle.

Speak to Castilchat in Northern San d'Oria, standing next to Gulmama. You must have at least level 4 fame in the Kingdom of San d'Oria before he will allow you to do this quest. If you meet the requirements, he will present you with a Mini Tuning Fork of Ice.

  • This is not a key item, like the Tuning Fork of Ice, and therefore requires a space in your inventory.

When you have made your preparations, trade the Mini Tuning Fork of Ice back to Castilchat. He won't keep it. Trading him the Mini Tuning Fork of Ice will warp you directly to the Cloister of Frost for the fight.

Try to fight Shiva on Firesday and do not fight her on Iceday

Upon defeating her, you will receive the ability to summon Shiva to your side.

when i summon carb and try to assault her, it says we are too far away....okay, fair enough. However, when i get close enough to try and attack her, she comes directly towards me, and even when carby is charging at her, she completely disregards him and goes straight for me, 1 shot everytime, and i have to most defense i can possibly get out of lvl 20 smn gear(with protect up btw)

Ugh, you guys. I need help. I keep trying to kill Ramuh and ifirt and I lose everytime. Here's what happens, i'll be fighting one of them and I'll use AF and then SL and it will be fine. I do everything right until I get to the second SL. It never works! Ever! Like Carby will be readying it, but then he will just stop and get interrupted. It always happens! Can you tell me what i'm doing wrong please? I'm getting so frustrated.

Okay, I just got summoner to 20 within the day and out of excitement (and lack of money to raise my fame just the one level in a few cities ><) I wanted to go fight some avatars. My first fight was with Titan, and I failed. I figured it'd happen, I had read the summoner.info guide but I was still nervous.

I was itching for more so I scraped enough money together to get 3 Hi-Potions, one Yag drink, two Hi-Eithers, and the ingredients to make a Boiled Crab. Most of my gear was crap (doublet, slops, ash clogs, some MP+ earrings, silver hairpin +1...) but better than Titan so I figured I'd have a better shot. I forgot to ask a high level WHM to buff me before so I went in on Firesday with just my own Protect I.

I traded to the crystal, when inside I used Crab, Aquaveiled, Yag drink then run to the bend, summon Carby. I ran to right before the pit and Assaulted her. Once he hit, I flipped off Astral Flow then SL. I made sure to stand here (not wanting him to miss) and once it was off, I ran back to the bend. He was still alive, so I popped a Hi-Ether. In the middle of my gulping, Carby died and Shiva was on the move. I held my ground and tried casting carby as soon as possible. I had a delay after the medicine though and had to recast Carby three times (third time she crit'd an Axe Kick but the casting still went through XD). Once he caught aggro I stood back some, popped a Hi-pot and immediately SL for 210 and she's now at like 25%. Right after she started Diamond Dust and I got caught in the rocks and couldn't escape so I got hit. Dropped Carby and got me down to 11 HP. I Hi-pot and Hi-either and manage to cast Carby without as much trouble. She keeps hitting me (cause Carby missed his first attack after summoning) and I'm jamming on the SL button. Finally, he readies Searing Light while I have 1 HP left and right before he casts --bam, Shiva finishes me off. T_T

It was a close fight.. I probably could of waited on the Yag drink and I maybe I could have bought another Hi-pot but other than that, I almost had her. Better buffs, or maybe even armor might've helped. So definitely, if you can get anything to up your defense, it'll probably help. T_T;;

For those who are doing Zilart Mission 5, if you have completed the Trial Size Trial by Ice by beating Shiva, you cannot warp back to the Cloister of Ice by the NPC to get the ice fragment. You will have to run through Fei'Yen to get to the headstone.

Alright, I just finished it.

I used lerkgjeowji's stategy, except I had 2 mulsums and no crab.

Cast Protect & Aquaveil in front of crystal, traded fork, ran up near her. Cast Carbuncle, she aggro's, used searing light. Carby disappears, I use both mulsums, MP recharges to 40, I used 2 hi-potions while waiting, cast carby, used searing light again, she uses Diamond Dust and kills carby, I use another 2 Hi-Potions, recast carby, use searing light. She has a little HP left, so carby and I melee her to death!


Great strategy lerkgjeowji! Thank you very much!

p.s. I was about 30 seconds off from the server record, i also used fraps to record it, so i'll youtube it. =p

I just got extremely lucky on this fight. I wasn't paying the most attention in the world going into this fight, cause I wanted to get it done before I had to go to work. I went in, protected, aquaveiled, and did the usual summon carby, AF, SL, yada, yada, yada. The third SL, however, was resisted. I didn't panic too much, whipped out my Yew Wand +1, and started beating on her. Carby went down almost as soon as SL went off, so it was just me and her. My hit sequence...4, 2, 2, 4...luckily, on that last hit, she fell. In all my rushing and excitement, I hadn't looked at the clock. I finally did, and when the third SL went off, it was Iceday. >< So, needless to say, I got super lucky. Don't be like me and pay attention to the time. Could have been much easier for me if I would have waited for Iceday to pass.

I basically followed the technique used in the Avatar Section of http://www.summoner.info/ … GREAT! site btw I recommend checking it out… its got pics and all… answers a lot of questions and then some…

Instead of me yammering on and on about what I did… just go the site and read the strategy and ur good to go cus that’s the exact strategy I used… Happy Hunting!

If u look like this o.O when battling Ramuh… fell free to read my post about what I did in the “Trial Size Trail by Lightning” section… <found in Quest>By Realm>Other>… made some tweaks but basically same strat as the site given!

Ramuh 1/2
Shiva 1/2
Ifrit 1/2
Leviathan 1/2
Garuda 1/2
Titan 1/1

That site again is http://www.summoner.info/ … make sure u check it out…

Scholar
49 posts
JOB: SMN/BLM
ITEMS : Tank food, 3 Ethers, 2 Hi-Pots (maybe 1 more if you wanna be cautious) 1 Yagudo Drink

Map : 1 = Where you spawn, the entrance/exit.
2 = Middle, mainly where you see a line go through the passage.
3 = Avatar
(1) - (2) - (3)

Step 1 Get buffs, anything before you enter.
Step 2 Get ready to use Yagudo Drink and go to Area 2, before the line.
Step 3 Use and summon Carbuncle, don't worry it'll auto attack the Avatar (Avatar aggroes by spell casting, so it'll come.)
Step 4 Once Avatar is hitting you or your pet (BE NEXT TO THE MOB AND CARB) 2HR and Searing Light Run to Area 1
Step 5 Wait till your carb dies and cast again. Once up Ether
Step 6 Repeat Step 3
Step 7 Once SL Lands, run to area 2-3, your pet might die early as you run.
Step 8 Use any potions if needed. Smn Carbuncle when you can and have a range from the avatar.
Step 9 ETHER AND SL
Step 10 (maybe) FIGHT!!

Extra Tips : This always happens to me. When I summon carby for the 2nd SL, the SL is never ready so I just run up and wait until carb dies and then resummon and SL. Repeat.

over at hydra, i worked myself to the bone getting my smn to lvl 20 in a week(no pwr lvling, all soloing).
after that i had to raise my magic skill to 60(started as 28, full days casting)
i bought, 2 ethers, 2 hi potions, 2 potions, 3 melon juices, a yagudo drink, and a boiled crab.

right before i go in, my friend casts protect II and shell on me.
i go in, cutscene, yada yada....
then, my heart starts pounding.but i know if i panic ill lose right away...
cast aquaveil, barsleepra, drink the yagudo drink, cast carby, and it starts...
first SL, 210 dmg, i get hit once.
2nd SL, 210 dmg again, im smiling as i run towards the nest.
she got her 2hr off, 134 dmg.after several swear words i improvise in, use my first hi potion.recast carby, pull off SL3, but only 104 dmg? crap!

i say ***** it, i switch weapons(hermits to holly staff) and go in.cast banish, doesnt kill her.i use my last few potions and prey.banish again, thats the clincher, i dance in circles, my heart stops pounding, and after all that i realized...i never even used my boiled crab XD.

was alot easier than some ppl claim it to b, and being on hydra, barely cost me anything..heres my list..
ether-4k each
potion-400 each
hi-potion-2.5k each
boiled crab-1.5k
yagudo drink-5.5k
melon juice-1k each.

very cheap, and well worth it.i hope everyone else finds it as easy as my prey was, and GL to u all.

Its not that hard. Ether...20k?!?! Either your getting Hi-Ethers or your server is totally whacked.. You want normal ethers for this speed is everything. Go to upper jeuno and check your map, theres medical/hospital type place here, its where you get cs for part of CoP's i believe with the freaky ghost looking kid. The person at the counter sells ethers fairly cheap roughly 4338 (7or8 jeuno fame). You want as much defense and magic resistance toward the avatar your fighting. Use a steamed crab (or boiled) try and have a friend give you some high lvl buffs i always use protect/shell 2 because i have horrible luck with lvl 3/4 buffs never last but a min or two and a normal slow fight should take no more then 5 mins tops. i use only 1 yag drink 4-6 ethers and 1 hi potion throught all my avatar fights on some occasion's i only used 3 ethers and no potions. When you walk up there she will always (99%) of the time cast frost armor before she can finish run up there sic carby astral flow >> SL, ether ether run back a good 10 ft. carby will die recast just stay put cause shiva will be coming let her beat on ya for a bit it shouldnt hurt to bad if you have decent equip wait for BP timer to run out walk next to shiva SL ether and run because DD will be coming at this point your yag drink will be gone you can drink one if you want i never did i used the ethers to get fast mp and tank her till i get my BP back and use a Hi-Potion when i need to (hi-potions activate just about as fast as ethers like 1.2 secs use those and ethers always for these fights) once your BP comes back just SL and you have a new avatar. Key is to not move while carby is "getting ready to cast" dont move till the avatar is facing carby youll know because shell want to beat on you and its fine, then carby jumps in the air and shiva is like wtf?! is that blue flying squirrel doing.. just keep calm and just remember to basically tank the avatar till carby jumps in the air for SL. I have not lost a fight this way i only lost to ramuh hes a 50/50 because of paralyze effect from his thunderspark sometimes SL will work others it wont. but it really isnt that hard.. hope you find some use in this random chatter :D

Edit: Spelling, also I have come to realize i have hero fame (lvl 9)

I have no clue where your getting them but in Upper Jeuno where the medical place is where you start your promy quest i dunno been awhile where you first meet the "empty" kid when you first walk in that building to the left theres a counter with a person standing at it "customer" and the person behind the counter they should always be around 4.3k-5k 5k AT MOST if you have super low jeuno fame i have never once had to pay over 4.4k for the ether its a standard merchant so the price cannot jump around like guild prices do. As for carby he was protection you, you got too close and shiva aggro'd you, you basically have to inch your way at first till you can "assault" her, as for mp make sure you use a yag drink i used a couple items to give a slight boost in mp maybe 19 or 20 it wasnt much but just enough to get the job done, mainly i went in defense/evasion or agi gear so i can take a good beating not having to worry about carby missing his SL even if you did get too close shiva should have casted frost armor she literally always does not once have i not seen her cast it before battle, when she does just run up to her and hurry and use astral flow youll gain hate so carby wont die early, you cant mess up casting since its instant cast and shiva will automatically turn to carby once he jumps in the air to ready SL thats your chance to run back on your way back down the hill you should see when carby does SL and you see it in the log "Carby uses SL, Shiva takes 210 or 211dmg" thats your que to drink a couple ethers and a yag drink run back down the hill where you started from wait till carby is dead resummon, chase carby till he meets shiva you should have about 13-20 secs before bp is back let her get a few hits in carby takes hate you drink a hi-potion spam SL macro till it goes off when it does run back to the top quickly drink a ether or two then shiva uses DD carby dies wait 1 tick cast carby shiva beats on you, wait for bp use hi-potion spam SL, once you die a couple times you figure it out, its really not all that bad just takes a couple tries to figure it out. Good Luck!!

Items used ) 1 Boiled Crab, 2Yagudo Drink, 4 Ethers and 2H-Potion. If at all possible its always good to bring any extra Ethers/Hi-Potions etc. When you first get warped in the actual Battlefiled (after the cutscene and you follow the winding hill up to the avatar). A reminder even though its a capped 20 fight the avatars will still say "Shiva Prime", "Ifrit Prime" etc. Do not be alarmed just check where normal buffs are and make sure there is a yellow circle in the top left with LVL written in it. Get a Protect/Shell II, lvl 3 or lvl 4 will not last throughout the whole fight be warned.. Equip i used Barons set minus the head i replaced the head piece with Nobles Ribbon and for rings i used 2 Knowledge rings for the +4 to ice and earrings i used two +1 Energy Earrings. (Def).
Weapon Hermit for the less interruptions and +1 Obi to do the same. In theory it seems that while your in a avatars arena/battlefield you have a more likely chance to interrupt your casting then out in the normal Vandy world note this is just theory not fact. (If this answer is known please reply so i too understand). In the arena (after cutscene) eat your crab drink a yag and summon the blue flying squirrel. Dont worry about creeping on shiva 99.9% of the time she will always cast her frost armor or whatever as soon as carby or you is in aggro range which is perfect because you can get your Astral Flow off right away and steal hate so carby doesnt get hit. Once you do the flow shiva will start to slap on you for little damage (should be) and pop off that SL macro. This is where most mistakes are made. DO NOT RUN!! You have just became a smn/whm smn/blm tank let carby jump in the air and wait till you see carby readies Searing Light and shiva hit carby for so so damage before you even think about leaving that position as soon as it hits pop a ether and run back down the hill till you cant see carbys life bar but only the name and wait for him to die. As soon as carby dies resummon and pop another ether and a yag drink this should set you up for your second SL which is tricky because this is where she will use her 2hr everytime. Follow carby up to the hill because if you dont she will come after you first till carby hits her (which he may miss) and meet shiva about half way to the hill and smash that SL macro till it goes off if it says you have 10secs or whatever dont fret she wont be able to hurt you fast enough by just her melee attacks a hi potion after about 8 hits should heal you full and use that SL macro. Now when you do this tank remember when carby uses that SL shiva will follow with DD. The point in following carby up the hill is to make sure shiva stays far enough from the protcrystal as possible so she cant use her 2hr even if she tried to cast on you after the 2nd SL. When you pull that 2nd SL macro off make sure carby is in the air and you see shiva hit carby and run back down to the crystal chance are she will cast DD while your on your way down the hill on carby no biggy pop a couple ethers and resummon if you followed carby right you will be able to summon carby about 3 secs before she tries to attack you. The only thing that you must watch for is if she uses BlizzardII it will not 1 hit kill but it does hurt a bit and can interrupt your casting. Once the last carby is summoned make sure you have the mp for SL and just mash the SL macro till it goes off. Now this is where you will use a Hi-Potion because YOU WILL have to wait about 10-15 secs before SL comes back but she wont hit for no more then about 5-9 dmg with a additional 6-11 dmg which you should be able to handle with 1 Hi pot wait till your life is about half way before using it incase she decides to throw out another BlizzardII. Wait for your SL macro to open up and mash it dont worry just sit there and watch the fireworks she could use a BlizzardII at this point and smack ya 4 times but it wont help carby will get the last SL before she can kill you. If all goes well it should be over you will have roughly around 140+hp with around 4mp left after the fight. I always had 100+ hp with 1 last tick before carby vanishes due to no mp. Also not sure if its a fluke but i noticed after i used a SL i would have around 6-8 mp left that would last about 5-8 secs before it will finally take that 3-4 mp tick while having carby out. Hope this helps and Good Luck!!

i have no luck with any avatars. I spent 100k on titan fighting him 8 times and finally getting him, then i go from kazam to sandy spend about 20k to get lvl 3 fame then i get some buffs so i go to the dude and relize its iceday. I would of fought her but i have bad luck with the avatars so i didnt. I then get a guy from my linkshell to buff me on the next day. I go in, get tov the field and get D/Ced. I should just become a DRK.

Mini Avatar Fights



What you need: level 20 SMN/WHM

Tuning Fork for Avatar

1 stack of Mulsum

6 Hi-Potions

1 Yagudo Drink

1 Boiled Crab

All equipment that helps with spell interruption

Good Timing



Attention: This is a very different approach to the normal “Cast Carby...wait to die ...Recast Carby” method. This is a very “Guns-A-Blazen” technique.





Step 1 Acquire Tuning fork and accept warp to crystal location.

Use Boiled Crab and cast Protect. (No need to regain MP)



Step 2 Trade Tuning fork to crystal and enter battle field.



Step 3 Run up the path till you are a small distance outside of agro range from Avatar

Summon Carbuncle and use Yagudo Drink.



Step 4 Move close enough to have Carby assault the Avatar. As soon as Carby hits (or misses) the Avatar hit Astral Flow, immediately followed by Searing Light 2hr.

Important!! Never move while using 2hr wait for Carby to hit before moving again.



Step 5 This is where a little luck comes into play. After using Searing Light your mp will drop to zero. As soon as that happens use a Mulsum other wise Carby will disappear and the Avatar will come after you. Be aware of the Avatar’s 2hr, it can kill you in 1 hit. If you see the Avatar ready its 2hr do whatever it takes to get out of range. If you get hit and live through a 2hr use 2 Hi-Potions and you will be in good shape.



Step 6 Time to prepare for the next Searing Light. Carbuncle needs at least 40 mp to use Searing Light again, so use as many Mulsums as needed. Wait for the recast timer to run out and use Searing Light again. Remember do not move till Searing Light is done. I have defeated Avatars in 2 Searing Lights but not all fall that easy. If need be use Mulsum, avoid 2hr (if Avatar hasn’t used it already) and prepare for another Searing light same as before. No Avatars have lived through 3 Searing Lights.



Note: If at any time carbuncle dies or disappears simply summon him again. If Avatar hits you and interrupts your cast use Hi-Potions as needed and try again. This is why the Spell interruption gears are needed, and believe me it helps a lot.
