In-Game Text

Description

"The Rhinostery has developed a new "mini" tuning fork of earth. Ringing it upon the protocrystal in Quicksand Caves 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."

Upon speaking with Ferrol (standing next to Juroro, who gives the Trial by Earth quest), he will explain about the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth and give you one. Beware, this item is not a Key Item like the regular Tuning Forks. This is a Rare/Exclusive item that needs to go in your inventory.

When you are a level 20+ Summoner (and ready to go: meaning get your food/juice/meds and gear ready!), return to Ferrol and trade him the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth. (Do not worry: he does not keep the fork.) The following conversation will occur:

Ferrol: Are you and Carbuncle ready to fight the prime avatar as a level 20 summoner? Ferrol: Also, regardless of whether you defeat the avatar or not, you will be unable to re-enter the protocrystal again for a number of days. Ferrol: Ma'am, our adventurer has completed her preparations and requests a warp. Juroro: ... Alacazimzam-scooby-dooby... ... Juroro: Sha-mona!

At this point, Juroro will warp you to the Cloister of Tremors. (Don't worry, there are no mobs to worry about here.) The protocrystal stands in front of you. You must TRADE the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth to the protocrystal. (WARNING: If you do not trade the fork and instead just select the protocrystal, you will enter the regular level 60+ party avatar battle if you have the regular tuning fork!)

When you enter the battlefield, it will give you the rules: Only (Your Name) can enter the battlefield. The time limit for the battle is 15 minutes.

You'll then see the cut-scene of Titan being awakened (the same cutscene that is shown in the regular avatar battles). Afterwards, you must run up the cool-looking staircase thing to where Titan awaits. At the bottom, however, it is safe to do preparations (cast magic, use items, rest).

During this battle, ONLY Carbuncle can be summoned. (So no, you cannot use something like.. say.. Air Spirit.)

The reward is the ability to summon Titan. (The same Titan you get from doing the other quest for the avatar.) You can attempt this as a summoner less than level 20, although it would be pointless. The recommended level (and level cap) is 20. You do not lose exp when you die, unlike the regular avatar battles.

Hello i am a summoner on bismarck server with much experiance on these avatars
i have beaten them for many friends and family heres my strategy...
First you u will need...
1-5 hi pots(4-5 suggested for tarus)
2-3 ethers(reason for not hi ether is its really slow cast time regular ether is a fast cast)
1 yagudo drink
minimum protect II and shell II
and if possible try to get earthen ward from a higher lvl smn i do believe we get it at 44 helps alot when ur trying to summon carby if u happen to get 2hred.

ok so with buffs and items trade the fork to the NPC..

When ur in the battle first thing go to the top not onto the platform but still on ledge right before it. Pop the yagudo drink then summon carby. after you summon carby send him in to attack use astral flow immediatly while carby is fresh with no chance of dying yet. get close to the avatar when u do searing light(SL)or else u will pull hate and possibly make carby miss the SL.After the first searing light pop 1 ether thats all you need as with AF your carby will have no tick and the yagudo drink will fill your mp just as the timer for SL is at 0:00 so once u pop the ether run your **** as fast as possible to the bottom of the battlefield if you notice carby die on the way down stop immediately and cast carby again becareful to watch the bloodpact timer. You should go threw 2 carbys and have a 3rd one summoned by the time you can astral flow again just keep checking that timer(create a macro if needed to spam it when timer is close) once the second SL is ready if ur far enough away release your carby summon a new one run to the avatar and SL as carby will pull hate as soon as u see your mp hit 0 pop another ether and run like forrest gump again. once again you should go threw 2 carbys before the SL timer is ready on the last searing light make sure u are close because u dont want to miss the SL for the third searing light u will have about a 7-10second buffer zone before astral flow wears so make sure on the last SL you are as close as possible cause one F#%K up in the last 30 seconds can ruin the whole fight. I have never ever lost with this strategy and i have fought each avater 20 cap at least 10 times.

Now the only damage i ever usually take is the 2hr but if ur lucky sumtimes you will just happen to be outta range when it happens seems to me like ramuhs judgement bolt rarely ever hits me cause i seem to be out of range when he 2hrs. now if at anytime u get meleed in that course of action after you pop the ether run about 50-60 yards from the avatar and use because then ur out of hate range so the hi pot wont add hate to u.

ok now the only avatar u have to alter the plan for is Ramuh though instead of Af right away and SL go up get paralyzed run away as far as possible try to paralyna your self and then release carby summon him and then start the fight process. Also becareful of ramuhs shock strike it is a stun move and has had me come to the brink of losing he tends to use Shock Strike near the 3rd searing light.

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… oh btw u have Barstonra as SMN20/WHM10 so use it… 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…

Ok so i just got lvl 20 with my smn. I wanted me some avatars. So i fight him the first time, i didnt have my 2 hour tho, i didnt expect to win, but i was bored so i tried it. I got him down to just a sliver of health, but i ran out of time {/cry}.

So i tried him again when my 2 hour was ready. I go in do all my buffs and run up the stairs and start. Im a taru and i had gotten down to less than a hundred mp fast, i looked an i had forgotten to use a yagudo drink ><. Crap! ok so i used it and summoned carby. titan was at 3/4 health (ouch), so i was thinking that i wasnt gonna win so i used astrial flow. One searing light, i had no idea that searing light had a cool down, lol. So i used and ether, and it was ready to go again and i look back and i see a dead bunny. darn. fat mans coming. so i start to summon, he hits me, ouch! low hp. i get carby summoned and use astrial flow. dead tong wearer. 7 mins flat and a record, kinda weird, i thought i took a long time. anyway, woot! my first summon.

O yes and i lived through a stone 2, and his 2 hour ^^. and im a flipping taru.

EDIT: i was told that there are daily records and all time. im sure mine was a daily. most of the other avatars records where less than 4 mins. sorry, i didnt know.

i managed to beat titan....yay! my second avatar! ^_^

i kinda beat him in a weird way though.....i did the 3 SL method and he had a small bit of life left...so i ran form him and got craby out, made him use poison nails on it, and then its used 2H and killed us both \(O_O)/, so i went to the toilet, came back and i had a CS waiting for me! i beat titan by poison!!!

Is this for the 20 smn battle or 60+ battle?
If it is 20 smn, can u repeat it and get all these items?

He was referring to the lvl 60+ battle. If you fight any avatar solo at the capped lvl 20, and win you can only be able to smn that avatar you cannot choose the items you want like you do in the normal "Prime" fights. Good Luck!!
just beat him^^

Just did this with only 30 Summoning Magic skill. I'm not saying I'd recommend it- I did get interrupted a few times. Brought six Hi-Potions and four ethers, though, so it still went alright, and I was wearing/wielding a Heko Obi +1 and a Hermit's Wand, for a total spell interruption rate -33%.

My last Searing Light only did 107, and I began to get very worried. I ended up popping an ether and casting Banish on him, which ended the fight. I was nearly a minute behind the record, but honestly I could care less- I'm just glad I pulled it off.

Fought him on Windsday, w/ no Shell and Only Protect I. Barstonra here really makes the difference. I got hit by Earthen Ward for only 5 damage. The strategy has been listed here, so I won't bother. I went in w/ the following items:

4 x Yag Drinks
4 x Hi-Potions
4 x Ethers
1 x Steamed Crab

I never really had to use more than 2 Yag drinks per fight, but be prepared to use all hi-potions/ethers if anything goes wrong. Hermit's Wand + Aquaveil makes a difference as well, and don't forget that as a /whm, you have Banish.

Whatever you do though, try to keep calm, and don't panic.

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.









Macros

Mulsum- /item “Mulsum” <me>

Hi-Potion- /item “Hi-Potion” <me>

Yagudo Drink- /item “Yagudo Drink” <me>

Astral Flow- /ja “Astral Flow” <me>

Carbuncle- /ma “Carbuncle” <me>

Assault- /pet “Assault” <bt>

Searing Light- /pet “Searing Light” <bt>

Banish- /ma “Banish” <bt>



Best Day to fight Avatar:

Shiva- Firesday

Ifrit- Watersday

Ramuh- Earthsday

Leviathan- Lightningday

Garuda- Iceday

Titan- Windsday



Lightday is Carbuncles day. Fight any one on that day.



Hope this helps and Good Luck ^^

Iceiss, Titan server.

I, like pretty much 70% of everyone who tried their first avatar, was all nervous about this, but it was hella easy.

1 Boiled Crab
3 Yagudo Drinks (only used 1)
3 Hi-potions
1 Ether
1 Hi-Ether

I just run in to the top (stupid me, in aggro range) I managed to pop Carbuncle without interruption, so I let him attack and I run back to a safe place (the bend) when carby dies, I pop him again (and this is where I first used a Yagudo Drink, forgot on the first time I popped out carby), let him die (never used Blood Pact such as Poison Nails, it just backfires when you can't do a Blood pact later with Astral Flow).

Summary: So far I've popped 2 carbuncles, used 1 Yagudo Drink and Boiled Crab.

When second carbuncle dies, I bring him out again, now I use Astral Flow and Searing Light, I run to a safe place and use the Ether and a Hi-potion (having them in macros helps). Titan is down to 2/3 HP, defeats carby, I summon him again till he gets hate and run back, Blood Pact ready, so I use the Searing Light again.

Summary: So far... 4 carbuncles out, 2 Searing Lights, no Earthen Fury yet...

After that second Searing Light I run as far as I can before Carby dies, use my Hi-Ether and try to summon Carbuncle, Titan interrupts me... twice, then uses Earthen Fury (here I panic'd and used my 2 remaining Hi-potions. I manage to pop back Carbuncle once again, and use Searing Light, FOR.TEH.WIN. I left the battlefield with 25 HP, 0 MP.

"My heart is beating, my hands are shaking. BUT I'M STILL SHOOTING, I'M STILL GETTING THE HEADSHOTS, LIKE BOOM HEADSHOT... BOOM HEADSHOT... BOOOM! HEADSHOT!"

I'm 1/1 on Titan, my first try on any avatar.

Hope any of this information helps.

P.S. I fought in Firesday (was gonna get Ifrit but then I realized how stupid that would be -_-;)

what do you think about subbing nin and dual weilding hermit's wands? + Heko obi +1 = very low spell interruption rate. this setup would never be used in pt, just for avatar battle, because you use medicine for hp/mp

So far for the level 20 Avatar battles I have faced this guy twice, Garuda about five times and Ramuh twice. Titan is way easier then Garuda or Ramuh since there are no shadows or paralyze to worry about, and even tho he hits hard, he hits slow.

what I did was used a boiled crab before entering.
Summoned carby halfway up the sloop. Told carby to attack (since Titan's first move is allway a Bind Blood Pact Type) went in next to carby. Astral Flow to Searing light.

Ran back to half way point of sloop, waited for carby to die. Resummoned and hit Searing Light macro repeatibly for 5 seconds went to Titan's Spawn spot and basically did the same apart from having to hit the Searing Light macro for like 25 seconds.

Materials Used
1 x Boiled Crab
1 x Yagudo Drink
2 x Ether

Entered on Windsday at about 10:00. I actually got the record on Remora at something like 3 minutes 43 seconds to what someone said before I told them I got the Record, Luck me as I got him before the servers were about to get patched (she was only 2 hours out) but easy come... easy go... I guess my record probably overwriten now.. ^^;; >.<.

So far this is the only avatar I have beaten outta the 3 I tried but he is way the easiest on the otherhand. no one is going to straight away just win all the avatars. Since he is in bastok he is good practice either way.

Okay, there's no doubt about it... these fights are UNBELIEVABLY annoying. Don't worry though you WILL eventually get throught them, and the reward is worth the effort =)

Okay so after getting my **** kicked numerous times when I first started out, I've developped what has become an almost 100% successful method for these battles.

Now it costs a lot (depending on your server, for me this method can cost from 15k to 22k PER fight on Asura).
Here's what you need:

Potion X 5
Hi-Potion X 2
Ether X 5
Yagudo Drink X 3
Selbina Milk X 12 (just a clump of em will last for a loong time, and they're cheap too, only about 200G for 12)

Okay so very simple strategy. Get your hand on a Hermit's Wand and ANY other equipment that lowers spell interuption rates (like Heko Obi +1 for example), the rest of your equipment try to find things that raise your EVAsion stats, otherwise anything with the highest defense.

Now, when you enter the battlefield IMMEDIATELY cast Protect and Aquaveil (if using a SMN/WHM, I haven't tried any other combo), or you can try to get a Protect II or III from some nice player before entering the battle. Now having macros set for these fights helps a lot (I will post my macro list right after this).

Run up the ramp until you can see the avatar in the distance and cast Carbuncle right away. Use a Yagudo Drink RIGHT AWAY after summoning (it restores MP).

Use assault of the avatar where you summoned Carby (MAKE SURE that the avatar if busy with Carbuncle before moving) now run to the top and hide beside the crystal. Try to run far enough away so you no longer target the avatar and you can no longer see Carbuncle's health, only his name, you know then you are at a safe distance.
Now that you have a chance, use the Selbina Milk (it gradually restores HP). Be very alert during these battles, and restore anything that wears off if you feel you are safe to do so.

After a minute or so Carbuncle will be defeated by the avatar. DO NOT PANIC, this will happen MANY times during the fight, so get used to it. When you see Carbuncles name dissapear from the bottom of the screen summon him again RIGHT AWAY, DO NOT WASTE TIME. Once he pops out again, mash the Assault macro, and once the avatar has targeted Carby again, run back to the place you summoned Carby for the first time (a lot of people say to run back down to where you enetered the battlefield, personally I found this a waste of time, and it actually caused me MORE difficulty, so just do what you feel comfortable with).

Keep letting Carby get wooped until you either:

A) Have the avatar's health down to about 3/4's
OR
B) Have less that 70 MP remaining.

Now's when you break out the 2-Hour.
Once Carbuncle has been freshly summoned, let the avatar come close to you and use Astral Flow, it WILL come after you, but don't worry. Now hit the Searing Light macro, and WAIT until Carby hit it before running away, otherwise you'll completely miss the target. This is EXTREMELY important!!! USE at LEAST 2 or 3 ethers IMMEDIATELY!!! Otherwise Carbuncle will dissapear due to lack of MP, and you will most likely DIE! After using the Ethers run to a safe spot (as mentioned before by viewing only Carby's name nd the bottom) and use potions as needed (Hi-potions if in the yellow and regular potions if you are below 75%HP).

Make sure you have at least 40MP remaining and continue the "Carby dies, you re-summon" method until you can re-use Searing Light. Follow the same directons as before, stay CLOSE to the avatar and wait for Carby to use it.

Using this method, the second Searing Light should do the avatar in. If for some reason it doesn't, then follow the same directions as before, and pray you have enough time to get another Searing Light in before the 2-Hour wears off.

And there you have it! This method has worked for me 90% of the time. Why 90%? Because I once continued hitting the wrong macro thinking there was some glitch with the game rather than using Searing Light, which lead my 2-hour to expire and Shiva to kick my bum. Other than that extremely stupid mishap, I've won every other time.

Don't worry you CAN do it! It just takes practice, it's very rare that anyone can get an avatar on their first try. Good luck!

Here's the Macro list I promised:

1. Carby (/ma "Carbuncle" <me>)
2. Astral Flow (/ja "Astral Flow" <me>)
3. Searing Light (/pet "Searing Light" <bt>
4. Potion (/item "Potion" <me>)
5. Hi-potion (/item "Hipotion" <me>)
6. Ether (/item "Ether" <me>)
7. Milk (/item "Selbina Milk" <me>)
8. Assault (/pet "Assault" <bt>)

Now in case you're wondering <bt> isn't a typo... it target the closest mob, so you don't have to target the avatar all the time.

One thing I forgot to mention before...
Sometimes Carby dies too quickly, and you cannot summon him again from a safe distance. The avatar WILL come after you and WILL interupt your summoning. Here's where the Hermit's Wand and the Heko Obi+ 1 come in handy, as well as any equipment that raises evasion (like Scentless armlets or Compound Eye Circlet). Raising your SMN Magic skill will also help with this situation, you'll want to try to get it to at least 40 before attempting these battles, it doesn't take too long, and it helps quite a bit.

Don't worry, it'll happen at one point with at least one of the avatars you fight. Don't lose it, just keep trying to summon and eventually (hopefully) Carby will pop out.

I wish you the best, any questions feel free to contact me at lion_heart3050@pol.com or just send a message online to Svalitz (Asura server)

Good luck!

Elvaans CAN do it

So I decided to give Titan a try, seeing as it was the last few hours of windsday and I thought "What the hell." Stupid Auction House doesn't have any Ethers all they have are Hi-Ethers. So I got

3x Hi-Ether
3x Hi-Potion
3x Yagudo Drink

This is the best part though... this is all the equip I used

2x onyx earrings
2x ermites ring (it was all I had)
1x hermit's wand

so I was practically naked. Oh and this is good to...

Summoning skill:
36

So with all this against me, (Not to mention the fact that I'm Elvaan) I go after Titan. it is about 20:00 on Windsday so I'm thinking, plenty of time. I go into the battlefield, and there is the big fattie in the G-String.

I run half way up, summon Carby, pop a YD, run the rest of the way, and Assault him. Instead of using Astral Flow right away, I let Carby die one time first, then when Carby dies, I am far enough from the fattie that I can summon again no prob. I use Astral Flow and Searing light, and it takes about 1/3 off his life, with carby's beatings, he's down to about 3/5 life.

This part was scary. I had NO IDEA Hi-Ethers took that freaking long to work. I'd taken some hits so after the Hi-Ether worked (finally) I popped a couple potions too. After two more searing lights, and two more ethers Titan had a sliver of life left. Carby and I pounded into him.

Naked Elvaan + Level 36 Summoning Skill = Dead Fattie

Only thing I'm going to change for next time is I'm going to do whatever it takes to get regular ethers, Hi-Ethers SUCK.

So anyone out there trying this, just MAKE SURE you go on the correct day that is most important.

-Edit-
I now use Hi-Ethers exclusively. I take back my earlier sentiments about them. They give good MP and don't take THAT long to cast.

I used this tactic on Fenrir to beat Titan (as well as every other summon) with SMN20/WHM9
Supplies -
Carbuncle Mitts
Hermit's Wand (in case something messes up)
Saintly Ringx2
Opal Earring
Onyx Earring
Blood Stone
Solea
Slacks
San d'Orian Tunic
3 Ethers
1 hi potion
1 yagudo drink

*Run to where target is (in this case, titan), send Carbuncle to attack.
*Run down to the crystal and use a yagudo drink.
*Summon carbuncle when target is halfway down to you. (Earlier may make carbuncle run at him too soon.) Titan will get close right as carbuncle spawns and attacks.
*Use Astral Flow/Searing Light, run to the top where target spawned. If you are fighting Ramuh with this tacitc, make sure your not paralyzed
*Use an Ether if not at 40+ MP, Searing Light.
*Run down to the crystal, Ether, Searing Light.

This should have killed him, but in the case of fighting Leviathan he still had 2% hp, so just have carby melee him.

If you did this right, you should still have one potion, and one ether. The reason to get excess is for the "in case" which happens to some people.
This tactic worked on Ifrit, Ramuh, Shiva, Titan, Garuda, and Leviathan flawlessly.

I've read folks on this forum talking about how they used 2 or 3 SLs to kill Titan [I assume to beat the record]. While I didn't attempt to do it as fast as I could, I assumed that I could kill Titan with the two SL method. I couldn't.

Here's my advice to those of you who just want to summon titan and are not bent on beating the record. Only use SL when you're sure it'll kill him in one hit. I summoned carby until titan was down to nearly 1/4 of his health. I'm sure I didn't need to bring it down that far, but I was trying to be safe. I used one high potion [I'm elvaan], two high ethers, and four yagudo drinks [again, I'm elvaan].

I started to fight Titan at about 21:00 on lightsday. Since my fight went on for about 13+ minutes, I ran into darksday. And since I won half on darksday, it makes it even more the victory.

Again, if you just want to GET titan, go nice and slow, don't try to milk your two hour for all it's worth.

Wow i so screwed up, i didn't come here before i went to try to kill titan. Needless to say i didn't know to trade the mini-fork to the crystal so my lvl 20smn/10rdm went up against Titan Prime.

This post is hope for all you Tarus out there, especially the whm's like myself. This is the first avatar i have solo'd. Took me about 3 or 4 legitimate tries to win, and ill be honest, it wasn't easy. I went into the battle with 3 yagudo drinks, 3 hi-ethers, and 2 hi potions, Summoning magic at 45. Everyone says to cap this. I really don't even see what capping this does honestly. i get a different answer from each person i ask. I do however agree with the people who say it lessens the chance of your summon being interupted, which def. helps, but i am living proof that it doesnt need to be cappped. Alright, so, my strategy was this - first off i subbed whm - why? aquaveil. Summoned Carbuncle, assault, Yagudo drink. Keep resummoning Carby for the remainder of the Yag. drink to take as much off of Titan as possible. I took about 1/4 of his life away. When the Yag drink wore off, keep attacking with carby till mp gets to around 50, aquaveiling when necessary. At that point use a second Yag. drink, Astral Flow, Searing light, RUN. Your not going to be able to get very far unfortunatly, but asap, use a hi-ether, and pound the carby button till you can summon him. This part really sucks. Your more than likely gonna take multiple hits from Titan. This is where smn magic, aquaveil, hi potions, and some luck come into play. I was lucky enough to get Carby back out, barely i might add, and do a second Searing light, defeating Titan. I didn't cure the whole battle, thats what the hi potions are for, only cure if absolutely necesary. You could actually probably get away with subbing blm, but having aquaveil, i think, is helpful. If you lose, don't give up, learn from your mistakes, that's what i did. Well, hope this helps, good luck.

ok here's how i did most my avatar fights....
{macros}
/ma "Carbuncle" <me>
/pet "Assault" <bt>
/pet "Searing Light" <bt>
/ja "Astral Flow" <me>
/item "Yagudo Drink" <me>
/item "Ether" <me>

{Items}
4 Yagudo Drinks (YD)
3 Ethers
3 Hi-Potions
{Job}
smn/nin
{REASON}(dual weild) 2 Hermits wands 50% chance of getting carby back out if something goes wrong.
{Strategy}
enter battle feild and go a little past bend and use YD, then summon carby and make way to avatar stay out of aggro range and inch ur way to avatar while mashing assault macro. carby should go straight to him without u getting aggro. run back past the bend a lil bit... while waiting there mash ur carby macro til carby gets summoned after carby comes out wait for him to engage then run back behind crystal as far as u can go and mash carby macro. after he gets summoned wait for him to engage and run past bend a lil bit...use YD when it runs out and do this over and over til ur 2nd yagudo drink runs out {REASON} to wittle his life down so u can use 2 Searing lights instead of three. NOW his life should be at 5/6; when ur second yagudo drink runs out... wait for carby to die. when u summon him pop a yagudo drink and use astral flow right away {REASON} cause u get all hate right now....then when carby hits avatar he takes all hate in 1 to 2 hits. Now run up to avatar make sure ur 'close' hit searing light macro( you dont have to target avatar /pet "Searing Light" <bt> automatically tagets the "partys" mob)...bam carby has all hate take off running to other side of map {REASON} need time for Blood Pact to come back. carby dies u summon him... pop ether and follow carby to avatar Searing light should be ready... and hit searing light macro to kill him.

I've only lost to leviathan and ramuh all others took me 1 try with this method. Hope this works for all u smns out there!

Consider this, in the beginning there were no mini-fork battles, they didn't exist. The only way to get Avatars to begin with is with an alliance of very high lvl players. If you were to play Summoner straight up the normal Tuning Fork way, you would have only Carbuncle and whatever Elemental Spirits you have up to lvl 60+.

The other "Avatars" didn't even exist until Zilart Expansion, so:

YES, if you plan to do the battles with Summoner alone, the easy way. NO, if you plan ahead and do the normal lvl 60+ battles with an alliance using normal Tuning Forks; which can possibly get you ALL the Avatars even Fenrir at lvl 1 Summoner.

lol i beat titan 5 min before the maintenance. I went in had no special buffs on just protect as 20SMN/10WHM with 60 summon skill(63 is cap). Brought 2 Hi-Eithers, 1 Yag drink, and 1 X-Potion. Strategy was go into battlefield run to elbow in the path to titan use yag drink, aqualviel, and summon carby. Ran up to top used astral flow then wacked Titan for 210 searing light. Ran back to the elbow used one Hi-Either waited for carby to die then resummoned to wack Titan for a second 210. Ran down to bottom used second Hi-Either and waited for carby death. It was too soon blood pact wasn't ready plus my summon macro messed up. I ran past Titan to the top used my X-Potion summoned carby manually and wacked Titan for a final 210. Clear time was 4min 26sec new record on Kujata.

Ok so if there is any other galkans out there that wanna be SMN and get the avatars via these battles heres some tips. Follow the Searing Light Strategy to the T. Also make sure your SMN is at lvl 20 with Summon Magic Skill maxed for that level it helps alot. but as far as items to take with you bring the following
2 Yagudo Drinks(might only need 1)
3 Ethers(definetly need all 3)
1 Boiled or Steamed Crab
1 Potion or the +1,2, or 3
and 1 Persikos Au Lait

If you take these items your almost guaranteed a win unless you go on the avatars good day.

also when you buff up use Aquaveil(need whm sub at 10) Bar*element* of whatever the avatar is. use the Persikos and the crab meat and then walk to the top of the stairs and cast Carbuncle then proceed with Searing light strategy from there thats what i did and i got Shiva and schooled here so bad she didnt know what hit her.

stupid bastard, first time i got him down to like 3 hp left, but was stupid in that i drnnk my yag potion too early (i use a slightly different strategy) and he demolishes me with his 2 hr.

second time around both searing lights only do 104 damage, didnt have a chance (it was on lightsday).

third time around, one of the searing lights does 210, run back to the top to find that titan is right behind me and carb is chillin down by the crystal (he had to have been laughin at me or somethin), so i released him, and summoned him (i have no idea how i didnt get interrupted) used my second searing light, 210 damage, and titan uses his 2hr, didnt have a chance to use a hi potion after he had been beating me relentlessly at the top, so i got wiped.

so im gonna say $#)% titan, ill wait till i have the other avatars before i try him again, and when i actually have money to get more supplies

I have tried Titan about 10 times now and still don't have him yet. I am using Yagudo drinks, Hi Potions, Ethers, and Boiled Crab. When i get his HP's low, he uses his 2 hr and wipes the floor with me. I am only able to use Searing Light twice. The second time I use it, the damage is only in the 100's, not 210 like the first time. Can anyone please help me figure out what i'm doing wrong??

Do I really want this guy? I fought Ifrit on Watersday, and thought "I can get Titan tonight!" -- completely forgetting that I needed my two hour.

Well, I managed to kill Titan with Carbuncle just smacking him. I blew through 6 hi-potions and three hi-ethers however. That's almost kind of sad. (Considering Ifrit was taking only 101 damage from my Searing Lights)
