I'm too lazy to read through all the posts but for those looking to do this without having to have 3xbst or 3xsmn or such nonesense, it is entirely possible to do with 2xBLM and a good tank (DRG seems to be pretty reliable). Its not a 100% win, I'd say in the 2dozen times I've done it this way we'd win about 80% of the time. You *will* need hipotions, pamama au laits and yag drinks, but even if you don't get astrals a thunder spirit pact or two usually drops to offset any costs for foods.

ive soloed this 12 times now as bst/pld and im 10/12 in wins and 1/12 for ring. Best stratedgy for solo is, 6-10 hi-pots,pear aulaite and a def food(i use taznavian taco) and 6+ antidotes. start by charming one bat running corner where you start and sick him on colo and begin fighting 2nd bat. when colos attention is fully on pet run the 2nd bat across the yard so your out of the colos range and you will draw 0 hate for curing and whatnot. seperating the fights makes this go much smoother, when your pet dies if the bat your meleeing is still allive just keep fighting it and trying to charm it. when you get down to just colo you know youve won ^^ finally for gear i bring my +chr stuff to get off charm, then when i begin meleeing switch to good gear. in a group if you use the same method of separating the bats it goes just as easy, i find bst and a healer is a necessity but 3rd member is a wash, anything will do.When doing it with 3 have the healer follow whoever drags the 2nd bat away from the other 2 and only cure with cure1s unless cure2 is absalutely needed, we got record tonight and our whm didnt get hit once ^^

Is this a good idea? im not sure if the sub jobs will be any use, also i could use blm or smn instead of the whm.

Did this one for the first time tonight with BST/NIN <me>, BST/WAR and RDM/WHM. Entered the Hut, RDM buffed, then BSTs charm the Furies. Charm failed a few times, and when it does, just kite the bats around till you can charm again. When both bats are charmed and attacking, GET OUT OF THE WAY! Colo-Colo spams Poisonga like a MNK using Boost, and that can take a toll on a party since Poisona tends to be an MP eater when you need to use it 12 times. As others have said, Colo-Colo will go down rather quick, then there's nothing left to do but take the Furies down one at a time. BSTs used Tuna Sushi(+5 CHR) and RDM used Pumpkin Pie and Yagudo Drinks. Didn't get ring in 3 runs, and nothing worth more than 20k, but at least we didn't die. I personally would save my seals for another BCNM that offers better drops if you're looking for cash, such as Royal Jelly (BCNM 40), but if you want the ring, this is the way to do it. Record on Shiva is 3min 46sec, we did it in 5min 14sec. This is very easily doable with 2 BST/WHM, but a third certainly doesn't hurt.

Did this 14 times tonight, only one astral ring dropped. Party setup was Bst/Whm 2x and Smn/Whm. fight was really simple and no 2hrs were used.
Battle Strat.: carby attacked colo while the 2 bst charmed the furies and then attacked the colo. Once the colo died, we waited for one of the furies to become uncharmed and killed it. Then we gangbanged the last one :P

I have summoner at 20, with garuda and leviathon (summoning skill capped)....or I have my white mage (59). Which is the best job to take along with 2 BST's?

Do the bats hit the beastmasters hard? or will spamming cure 1 be enough to keep them alive (more Mp for SMN but no cure 2)?

The *best* strategy besides SMNx3 or BSTx3.
I understand its hard to get three of those jobs in one party, so this is what i did.

BSTx1 DRGx1 WHMx1(Doesnt even need to be whm actually, could be RNG for all it matters, its just whm limits the amount of potions needed)

DRG/WHM
BST/RDM
WHM/SMN(etc. Doesnt need to be whm remember)

Items needed:
BST-Flint Cavierx1
Drinkx1

DRG-Meat Kabob
-3 potions (5ooG each)
-1 hi potion(just in case)
-1-2 Drinks (Anything higher than Apple works)

Other-Whatever works best

Strategy... That's a secret... Fine ill tell you =O

DRG-Go in, uses food, if no WHM then cast protect. Use Drink, run in and Jump a furies.

BST-Charms the other furies and sets it on the Colo-Colo. If 2hr used, helps DRG kill Furies. if not, sits back and waits for charm to come off.

Other-If healer, heals, if melee Helps drg, if blm Nukes.

After drg kills The furies (wont take long if u have proper gear) helps the charmed furies kill colo-colo.

once colo is dead, rest if needed. Then have BST ***LEAVE THE BATTLE FIELD***

Then it is up to the drg and other to finish off the other furies.. Do this correctly and Congratulations! u just won.

Easily Duoable DRG+BST with proper items. ^^; GL

What is the drop rate on this? I've beat it 6 times now and still no ring. Every battle we get less than 20k worth of materials. Platoon crap and a rock along with a bat wing or fang and occasionally a scroll of invisible or something. We hold the record on Lakishmi with 2 minutes and 6 secs. with 2 SMNs and a PLD. Someone please tell me what the drop rate is on this ring.

Oh i forgot one thing . I only go with my BST/whm and a whm or rdm and one X-potion each. Its better when rdm come cause he can fight Colo-Colo with me. Well my technique is Simple. I do these spell first: protect,barpoisonra,Aquaveil. i use a flint Caviar for the chr boost that give me. i use a monster signa till i charm a bat. Ater its easy i use my 2 hrs witch keep the bat charm for all the fight. Send it to kill the other fury and me and whm or rdm kill Colo-Colo.
If my bat win againt the other bat i stop my bat fighting till the other bat kill it and after i only have to kill the fury with his very low MP that left to him. Its so easy why separate money in 3 wile i can separate it @2. Hope it will help. Send me a tell if u want me to help u kil those bat i love to go kill them ^^. I'm in UNICORN server. Take care all hope it will help.

This is a very easy BCNM. Easily duoable with 2 BST/WHM.

My main being summoner I needed 2 Astral Rings. So I levelled Bst gota pal and headed out to this.

Overall CHR was +15 including Tuna Sushi.

Run in charm one. Set it on Colo while friend charms other and sets it on Colo.

Sit back. Recharm when uncharmed. epeat this till Colo dies. Then charm one Furies and set it on the other. If things are going badly. Charm both of them and heal. Then solo thwe final bat. Easy and no 2hours required.

3 Astrals have dropped for me. 1 I sold and split. Other 2 I am using for my Summoner.
we won!

Did this today with a whm/blm, nin/war, and mnk/war

Buffed up, mnk 2hr'd right away on one of the smaller bats, nin voked the main bat and attacked the smaller one, whm healed. Mnk killed first bat pretty quickly then switched to the other small bat wheil nin switched to main bat. This wasn't the plan but it kind of happened that way. We were aobut 60% left on the main bat and were about to die, but whm used benediction and saved the day. Crap drops though: bat fang, green rock, platoon edge, and sneak scroll.

wot u should do when u 2h a furie with bst and thats the last bat left u should d/c on purpose. Make sure u have a summoner on ur team coz then the fury uncharms but does not attack u but then u cannot attack it with physical or magical attacks. This is where the summoner comes in summon ramuh and for sum reason it allows ramuh to attack it in the end i was just sitting down watchin ramuh kik the last bats *** it was so funny :-)

hehe very interesting technique but... you could heel the 2 houred bat and let the other bat kill it, then solo the last bat. much less elaborate. usually with bst duo one of us will 2 hour and the other not, and usually the 2 hour bat dies before the other one anyway since it had the most hate on the colo. anyhoo just a thought XD

I did this last night 3 times on Leviathan
Nin/war Bst/whm and Bst/whm
Food--> Nin/war (me) used squid+1 (which lasted all 3 fights) bst/whm used sole other used tuna

We went in one bst gave protectra other gave barpoisonra.
They healed up.
I voked Colo and tanked it when they had full mp and tanked it while they charmed the furies.

Furies got charmed and helped kill Colo-colo.

Colo-colo uses special moves a few times take down utsusemi... X-Potion helped here.

Colo-Colo died and bsts stayed their bats then healed.

One furie became uncharmed. I voked and we killed it. other went uncharmed and we killed it.

No astrals but we did get a thunder spirit pact which is over 100k on leviathan.

Gl guys.

Rolled in as DRK/WAR, WAR/MNK and MNK/WAR.

MNK 2-hours and solos the Furie on the left.
WAR vokes Colo-colo and proceeds to slaughter the right Furie with me [DRK].

After we killed our Furie, the MNK had destroyed his bat, we began to gang rape Colo-colo until he died.

Won easily. Used about 3 hi-potions each and a pamama au lait. MNK ate mithkabob, DRK ate sole sushi and WAR ate tavnazian taco. :)

Yes, and it is my belief it wouldn't be that hard.

Just did this last night semi-successfully with 2 SMNs ( I was one of these )and a THF/WAR. We went in, buffed up, and sent Ramuh and Garuda in ( we wanted to see which 2-hour was more effective ). Hit them with Judgement Bolt and Aerial Blast, which together took about 2/3 of their health and did the exact same amount of damage.

Then things got ugly. The avatars have a somewhat hard time tanking these, unlike the Shooting Fish BCNM in Horlais Peak. Well, my partner's Garuda got killed and then all 3 bats came after him. The THF voked Colo-Colo off of him and immediately used Perfect Dodge. The furies managed to kill the SMN before his Blood Pact was ready.

After he went down, the furies came for me, but I was able to stay alive by using a few Hi-Potions. This kept me alive long enough to use Judgement Bolt a second time, which killed all 3 bats.

So basically, one Aerial Blast and two Judgement Bolts will kill these...or any combination thereof. Three SMN, all using their two-hours at the same time, should be able to easily drop these without a fight.

On a side note, make sure your people are properly compensated. I spent 30k on items for us to use and got nothing from this BCNM. Granted, the drops were flat-out awful- Bat Fang, Platoon Lance, Thunder Spirit Pact, and a Mythril Beastcoin- but I still feel like I should have gotten something other than the 500g this BCNM drops.

Edit: Minor clarifications ^^;

What if 3 Bst did this? I would assume that should be easy. I have a question about the 2 hour though. Say you 2 hr a fury and kill the other Fury and Colo-Colo. Do you win or lose if a BST has a pet and all mobs dead considering BST are capped pre-leave?

In answer to your question, you would lose because the time would run out before the 2 hour charm comes off.

Watched a pair of BSTs do this the other day, and they had a neat way of dealing with this. When only the charmed furies were left, the BST who had charmed them simply logged out, leaving the other BST to solo them once they came uncharmed. Worked rather well.

Of course, the last guy in the BCNM would have to be someone you really trusted. "What? No, we didn't get the Astral Ring. >_> "

so far me 20BST/WHM, my friend 20BST/SAM, and my other friend 20SMN/WHM have been doing this bcnm for days now and have won 8/8 we got astral ring 2/8 and thunder spirit 1/8 which went to smn. So we all gained 1 mil each out of it so far, we r so happy.

Althogh one battle we were just about to go in the battlefield when we noticed a blue dot on our radars and it said that it was in the hut which was pretty strange we thought, but neway we finished the mobs with ease and all of a sudden this little taru speeds across the screen 2 the armoured crate luckily i got there b4 him and then he ran off into the mountain. This we thought was very strange and in the end we thought he was a gil seller coz he had a name like qjlqiw. We are on remora and wonder if any else have had this happened to them, can we have some answers please? thank you!!

Just did this today 9 times. A BST friend and I decided to duo it a couple of times to see what we could get but ended up having a few friends come along.

We kitted ourselves out with some pretty crappy gear since we couldn't get anything on the AH and we're lazy. Throughout the various fights we tried Tavnazian Taco, Tuna Sushi & Flint Caviar depending on what was lying about in peoples inventories. All were good choices but Taco stands out as you take less damage if you mischarm.

We both went as BST/WHM and duo'd a fight before our RDM arrived. When he turned up we did 4 battles with him that all went very smoothly (he didn't wear any equip to this BCNM) and we got 2 Astrals in the time he was with us.

After the RDM's 4th battle he had to log so we again duo'd the BCNM while we waited for a SMN from the LS to come and help. The SMN arrived and we did 2 more battles getting another Astral. Astrals go for 1.5mill on Carbuncle and so we sold and split. 1.5mill for my BST friend and I, 1mill for the RDM and 500k for the SMN. Easy money.

The strat we used was the usual. Charm both furies and stick them on Colo, recharm/kite when they uncharm. When Colo dies set them on each other and hack them to death with your Axes.

In conclusion: 3/9 On Astrals 2/9 On Thunder Spirit

Did this today. Pt was bst/whm - drg/war - whm/blm. Started with the bst charming one set of furies, 2houred afterwards, then got it to attack colo-colo. While that was hapening, me (drg/war) and the bst we were attacking the other set of furies, whm healing us in the meantime. We managed to kill the furies before colo-colo killed the other set of furies. So it was down to the three of us and colo-colo. Whm silenced him quickly, for poisonga and drain ><. Then we attacked him. He died in no time.

Gear was really simple, nothing to fancy. no food except rolanberie pies for whm. dint get the astral but we are going to do it again^^

We now hold the record time on titan. 4min and 44sec. lol we beat the old record by a good 3min :p

just tried this twice, once with a pld/war whm/blm drk/war and the other time we switched from a drk/war to mnk/war and switched it to a war/pld(the def helped a lot). both times we failed. we all had pretty much top notch equip, so it wasn't that. the drk/war in the party was not a good choice because he gets instant aggro it seemed like, and with there only being one tank, this turned out bad from the beggining. the second run seemed a little more promising. the mnk and war both 2hr'd at the start and stared hitting the furries, we both concentrated on the same one to try and kill it and move on to the next. bad idea because as soon as the whm tossed a cure our way, colo swarmed her and she died, (taru whm has no hp) with it just being the mnk and me left, and colo, we thought we were in a decent position, until the drains started rolling in. I didn't check what day it was when i went in there....but from reading what you all have posted already, i'm guessing it was darks cuz it was hitting for 30-60 damage each, which killed both of us. i died while attempting to use my last x-potion, and the mnk just got raped afterwords. i'm going to try a few other combinations out besides bst...but it's looking like that may be the best route.

To preface...I had done this BCNM earlier...with a mithra (notoriously wretched charisma) BST...one would think that if a character with significantly lower charisma could charm the bats and keep the bats charmed without her two hour CONSISTENTLY, a hume with full charisma gear could...

I recently did it again with a group BETTER PREPARED and with better gear and levels and charisma. The 2 BST and WHM setup...
We had good gear, the BSTs had the best charisma gear and even better scores...WE BROUGHT FOOD THIS TIME. And guess what...Charm NEVER stuck...well to be strictly honest out of the 20 times both of us tried to Charm it worked about 4...and lasted for about 30 seconds at the very maximum...the shortest Charm lasted about 3 seconds.

We wiped...because charm wouldn't stick and all the defense and HP foods and drinks in the world (we had enough on us for about 3-5 of these under NORMAL conditions) couldn't keep us alive with three angry uncharmed bats on us after the WHM kicked it (despite my taking /war Colo-colo REALLY hated the WHM).

So yeah...I think SE figured out what BSTs everywhere were doing and gimped us by making the bats freaking uncharmable...because out of the dozen times I've done and watched others do this...this is the ONLY time charm never stuck.

Heh...or maybe SE just gimped the Full Moon (since my fiance logged on after the BCNM failed and proceeded to repeatedly break all of his fishing gear on completely exhausted salmon).

I think so too. I have soloed this bcnm before with only 8 hi-potions and a tavnazian taco as bst/pld. Today I did it again, with +18chr, bringing 17 hi potions and a yagudo drink.. I was killed. level 57 ->56

What the hell? How could I lose? The charm rate wasnt too terrible(compared to my 13 mischarm streak that other time), but the colo beat the crap out of my 2hred pet. It only took colo down to about 75%. So I had to deal with both of them... Charmed the other furies to help out a bit, but I ran out of hi-potions when both bats were a few hits away from death.

Over 100k worth of meds and 20 seals down the drain..
How I solo.

I've sucessfully completed this BCNM as BST solo a good 7 times now (1 Astral drop) and a further dozen times with a duo partner (be it WHM, BLM, MNK, NIN, PLD, SMN).

BST/PLD (BST/WHM takes too much damage).
I take a minimum of 6 Hi-Potions. Used only 2 at minimum, 7 at the most.
2 Pear au Laits.
2 Yagudo Drinks.
1 Tavnazian Taco.

As soon as you enter arena, buff up as much as you can.
With +22 CHR (including Monster Signa) it takes me 4 charms at the most to charm the first Furie. Once done, 2hr, send it after colo. 'Tank' the second bat, keeping HP topped up (Yag. Drinks more than keep MP near full). If your charmed bat is dying too quickly, Reward it (I use the +150HP one) but make sure it doesn't out-live Colo.
Once that bat dies, charm the second Furie and send it after Colo. If I get this sucessfully charmed I have approx. 30 seconds being able to /heal and watch the 2 slug it out. After 2 or 3 charms of the second bat, Colo should be dead leaving you the 2nd Furie to finish off, with hopefully less than 50% HP. This last effort is what uses most of your Potions if it's HP isn't low enough.
Don't attempt to fight with your Monster Signa equipped. It's too weak to deal any real damage. Grab a Battleaxe before you enter the arena, gets the job done.

Advice:
If the initial charm fails 2, 3 or even 4 times don't panic. Try to aviod running through the 3 bats, and either circle the arena trying to avoid the bats attacks or stand completely still and use a Hi-Potion or 2.
Once your first bat is charmed, it is crucial that you use Familiar. You don't want 3 bats attacking you because your charm has worn off.
As a Hume BST/PLD with Tav. Tacos I take between 15 and 25 damage per hit from the Furie being 'tanked'. Timing cure after each second hit keeps my HP above 75%, as long as Regen doesn't wear off.
Poison from Colo doesn't last long, and the Au Lait cancels it out anyway.
Watch out for "Turbulance" and "Drain" or "Blood Drain". The latter is annoying, especially when fighting the final bat. Turbulance can deal between 70 and 110 points of damage.
Bringing a friend along with you makes the fight less frightening. BLM can Elemental Seal + Sleep the second Furie, WHM can keep you topped up with HP. SMN can use avatars to distract the second bat, MNK PLD NIN and WAR can all tank the second bat with little or no hassle.

Costs roughly 40k to prepare for the fight on my server. Got 1 Astral Ring solo, 3 duo and 2 Spirit Pacts.
Best chance of drop it appears is Darksday, Nighttime. My last two attempts at that time have been a success (but I noticed Drain did more to me than previous - roughly 75Hp drained compared with 50 on a different day).
