Battle Notes

To begin, trade 30 Beastmen Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno in order to obtain the Rare/Ex item Sky Orb. Upon receiving the orb, make your way to the Waughroon Shrine zone located in the Palborough Mines dungeon.

Be advised that only three players can enter the battlefield, that their levels will be capped at level 30, and that there is a 15 minute time limit that starts the moment the orb trader enters the battlefield.

Upon entering the battlefield, you will find three birds, two pink colored birds named Neman and one brown colored bird named Macha.

  • In addition to normal Bird tp moves, Macha is also capable of casting Sleepga and Dispelga.

In order to spawn the armoury crate, all mobs in the battlefield must be defeated within the allotted time.

Strategies

Beastmaster Solo Setup

A common strategy and the one most often used is having one Beastmaster with his two-hour Familiar ready for use. A high amount of Charisma boosting gear as well as some poison potions available to protect against Sleepga.

Upon entering the battlefield, buff up and charm one of the Neman's, then use Familiar and have it begin to attack Macha while staying out of spell range as best you can (you won't be meleeing Macha while using Neman pets). When Macha defeats the charmed Neman, charm the other Neman and have it attack Macha, again remaining out of its spell range. Once Macha has defeated that Neman, call out a jug pet and defeat defeat it.

Summonerx3 Setup

This strategy involves three summoners with their Astral Flow two-hour abilities ready for use. This will also require the Shiva avatar, a Yagudo Drink per summoner, and a few mp restoration items ( Ether, Hi-Ether, etc.) per summoner.

Upon entering the battlefield, buff up and then summon Shiva. After they are summoned, run up to the top of the rampway (making sure to stay outside of aggro range) and activate Astral Flow, then use the Yagudo Drinks. Send the Shivas at Macha and, as soon as they strike it, run towards them (so that the hate gained from performing a bloodpact doesn't draw Macha too far from the Shivas, resulting in failed bloodpacts) and use Diamond Dust. With three Diamond Dusts, the two Nemans should be dead and the Macha should have very low hp, so at this time use the Ethers that were brought. You can either allow the Shivas to just melee Macha to death or, when the recast timers have reset, use another Diamond Dust to finish it off.

Solo with BST?
# Oct 05 2011 at 10:37 PM Rating: Decent
So it could be possible to solo this with a BST? Also have a friend with RDM/BRD or RDM/SMN that could help out. I need the scroll for my Ninja job.
Sorry, also, do all of the listed items drop when the BCNM is defeated? Or is it random? Sorry, still kinda of a noob. Tryin to get my 50BST to 95 so I can start on my NIN easier.

I went 2/3 for this BCNM (1st time I died because of my maccros not well set) and 1/3 for Utsu scroll.

This is a very easy fight as bst/nin. You don't absolutely need to Familiar one of the bird.

Be patient and it will be fine.

Good luck for the drop!

I usually just duo this with a bst. So, thats a whm/blm & bst/dnc duo.

Easy fights, sometimes crazy mischarm rates, bst has +17 chr in gear and /dnc..

But, with almost a dozen runs at all diff moon phases including full/new, not a single drop worth putting on ah; ;

Can this be done with 2smn? We are 3/4 on wings of fury, and would like to give this one a shot. If we both popped a yagudo drink, AF, Ramuhs JB, used ethers & hi potions, would we have a shot?

2 bst can't solo. They can duo, though.

Although, this BCNM can be soloed by 1 bst. I did it last night. Crap drops :(

Same as BCNM 20 WoF except you HAVE to sic your charmed Neman on the other lesser bird, not the main mob. The lesser birds in this one are anything but "lesser", they hurt bad.

I'll write a full guide soon in the BST forum.

Hi everyone. I've done this BCNM well over 20 times and i've had great success rate. At the moment i'm 17/20 we've only failed 3 times. Two of the times was when we tried Nin/war. The best setup in my opinion and we have tried many. is PLD/NIN (being able to Cure your self is very handy) BST/WHM for charm and WHM/SMN or /BLM. I'll explain why.

PLD/NIN BST/WHM WHM/BLM

PLD/NIN runs in attacks main bat and gets agro from all 3 bats. At this point the BST try's to charm one of the charm-able bats. whether the BST fails or not he will take one of the bats off of the PLD so now the PLD will only have 2 bats on him. At this point the WHM steps in and Uses Cure 1 to keep BST alive until charm sticks and occasionally cures the PLD. When bat is charmed the BST will send it at the other charm-able bat not the main bat. The main bat doesn’t hit as hard as charm-able bats and misses a lot more. Then the PLD and the BST attack main bat while the other 2 bats duke it out. Once the your pet bat kills the other bat (try to make sure your pet wins, makes fight way easier if he wins help him fight the bat for a bit if needed) you send it at main bat. If the main bat is almost dead disengage so that it kills your pet. If your pet wins have BST force a D/C so you can kill his pet. This has worked well every time, you can actual fail charm twice and still win with this setup if you fail a 3rd time it gets really hard but do able.

PLD/NIN BST/WHM BST/WHM

You use the same battle plan as above. All this setup does is improve the odds of landing a successful Charm. MP will be an issue with this setup. Once one of the BST charm one of the bats the other BST helps PLD fight main bat. Do not charm both bats. If you charm both bats you will be able to kill main bat faster but main bat is weak when you melee the charm-able bats after you kill main you will most likely run out of MP. Remember BST have to D/C once the mobs is dead to lose charm so you can finish the BCNM. If you wait for charm to wear off you might run out of time.

We have used both of these setups and PLD/NIN BST/WHM & WHM/BLM feels a lot easier. Once you land charm and attack the other bat its almost 100% win.

Tried this bcnm today, 2 BST and a NIN/WAR (me, basically leeching the battle).
on the first run, each one of the BSTs tried to charm one of the Nemans. As the first charms failed i voked the central bird and proceded to kite it around the room waiting for BSTs to charm the smaller birds. Easily kited, it kinda lacks acc, but dispelga sucks. Sadly BSTs got like 5+ unsuccessfuls charms and eventually died both without a fuc*ing charm kicking in, and yes, they were properly equipped. I died tryin to get out of the bcnm.
2nd run, tried a different strategy. A bst sends a jug pet to get all the hate from the birds while the other one try to charm a lesser bird. As the first charm failed (--') i was supposed to voke the bird from getting on the bst, but messed things up and voked the wrong bird ><' luckily charm gets in at this point, we wait for the jug pet to die and the other bst can charm the remaining small bird. From here i basically /sit and watch the show =P both birds on the Macha, it goes down like nothing, one of the birds uncharm and the charmed one takes it down as well. Wait for the last one to uncharm, and take it down as well (no problem since it'll have like 10% hp left). Got Mercenary Earring, Darksteel Ore, Horn quiver and 2 bird feathers, a little over 300k on fairy.
3rd run, i wasn't in it so i can't really say, but it basically went as the first one.
An easy fight if charm works, but we had a horrible time tryin to get it to work. Bad luck i suppose =\

And yay, that was my first BCNM ^^

A couple LS friends and I went in as RDM/BLM (Me), RDM/WHM (Ardiem), and BST/WHM (Hatecrime).

First time, we didn't quite know what we were doing adn got wiped in about 30 seconds flat, we picked up and went back with a better plan.

Hatecrime started off by charming the bird on the left and setting it on the main bird.

I cast Gravity and Blizzard (In that order) on the Right bird and then kited it around the arena while Hatecrime used his bird to kill hte main one. Ardiem's Job was to keep an eye on everyone's health.

Once the main bird went down, Hatecrime sent his charmed bird against the one chasing me and I set down to rest MP, by the time it was down to one bird left, the remaining bird was so damaged that a Single Blizzard from me killed it. Worked like acharm

Second time Ardiem got a Wizard's Earring
Third time Hatecrime got a Lace Belt and we broke the server record for time.

Two BST alone can easily take this. It's a total cakewalk, if you do it right. Just finished it with an LS mate from my BST LS (BeastenMeister on Cerberus) and we whomped it the first time through.

We both called jug pets, to work down the life of the weaker birds. One a peice. The main bird will jump one of the jug pets, but that's fine. Once the jug was dead, we each charmed our respective birds and beat the tar out of the main. Even got in there and did melee on it to make it die faster. No worries about hate, as the birds were outdamaging me by 2x. -.- Even threw in a Sic myself, assume my LS mate did.

Once the main was dead, we just...stood around until one bird to uncharm. I'm not sure which died first, my LS mate's charmed neman, or the uncharmed bird, but by the time it was over, it was one whack from each of us to kill the last bird off.

Currently hold the recored at like... 7 minutes.

Equipment/food wise, we went in with pretty much the exact gear you'd wear leveling at 30 for BST. I'm not sure what food my LS mate used, but I used a flint caviar (+5 Chr giving me a total of +14).

Second fight didn't go so well.. LS mate got a little too close before sending his jug to fight, so the main went after him. He died.. My charmed bird died as it was double teamed, and I mischarmed three times on the remaining neman to die myself.

Out of the two, we got an avatar belt, which goes from 360k-450k on our server. Going to run it again later once my mate gets enough seals for another orb.

Edited for typos.

Did this last night, party as follows:

RDM/WHM (me, Azacharyg)
BST/WHM Gazoo (couldn't change subjob)
RNG/NIN Holliday

I used Apple Pie (thanks Erk) and Yag drink and buffed (Protectra, Shell, and Blink). The plan was to have Gazoo charm one of the small birds and sic it on the other small bird, while Holliday and I concentrated on the big one.

Gazoo went at it Charming, which took a couple times to stick. His HP got down to the red, but luckily Charm finally stuck, and we got him healed up. Once the first little bird went down, we all concentrated on the big one. Dispelga sucks, by the way, and I lost refresh and protect. I started to get a little nervous.

However, the big bird went down, and we all got to heal while we waited for Charm to wear off on the last one. Because of that, it was no problem.

We set the Bahamut record (nice suprise!) at 6 min 35 sec. I was hoping for Dispel Scroll drop, but got:

Horn Quiver
Mythril Ore
Sardonyx
2 Bird Feather
1000gil

Will try it again soon! It was a lot of fun and my first BCNM fight. Gazoo and Holliday are awesome, thanks again.

i just did this tonight. we had mixed results.
pt setup was:

war/nin
war/nin
brd/whm

the first fight went good for the first few minutes. The smaller birds woke up then and started beating the crap out of the brd. While i was trying to sleep bolt one of them, the other bird wtfpwned me from the back. shortly after the other tank died.


second fight was same players. we went in and used icurus wings and brd 2hr and we 2hr and messed the main bird up fast. our brd got confused with his macros and casted foe lullaby, instead of horde.

the brd died as the main bird died, and that left me and the other tank with a bird apiece.

we had brought plenty of potions and we kept one slep bolted and we won.

the main thing to remember is to kill the big bird first. he spamms dispelga and sleep and other crap.

bring plenty of sleep bolts and hi potions (and i mean like maybe 10 potions to a tank) and keep a calm head. the birds have low def and arent hard to hit.

they dont have that many hp either. smacking them up was easier than i thought it woul;d be.

as for our drops, we got the following:


1 bird feather
1 bird egg
1 chunk of mythrill ore
1 quiver of scorpion arrows
1 avengers earing.. i think its avengers.. the one with +2 vit.. sorry, but im sleepy and i scribbled it down


we are going to take a rdm with us and see if the rdm can make sleeps stick longer.

ill post again on how the rdm/ war/war setup worked out

hope this helps , it was all i could think of to maybe pass along. good luck all

I just did this BCNM about 5 minutes ago. 3xSMN30. One SMN got too close, and was aggro'ed right at the start, it went downhill from there.

She was killed before she could use Diamond Dust. The other 2 SMNs used theirs, 1 Neman resisted a Diamond Dust.
After two Diamond Dusts, all 3 birds were still alive, and soon both Shivas were dead. As soon as mine fell, I started recasting, but I was put to sleep before I could complete the cast, and then was killed by a Damnation Dive for 117 damage.

I was the last to die. It's too bad, I could use that Avatar Belt.

PT Setup
Tank
Dmg Dealer
Mage (Dmg Dealer/healer)

Setup We Use
PLD/WAR
SMN/WHM
DRK/RDM

Strategy
Buff after you enter Burning Circle because buffs leave when u enter. Start with Aerial Armor first since there is a timer till u can use avatar abilities. Avatar ability should be reset by the time u start fighting. Now Barsleepra, Aquaveil, have PLD Protect II everyone and Shell everyone (they will have time to recover mp), eat your food (mithkabobs, boiled crab, etc.) NOw rest and fully recover.

FIGHT TIME
Cast Shiva now, away from battle area because birds tend to agro you when u start casting. With shiva out, pop a yagudo drink. Start going towards battle area. Hang out before area and let PLD in first.

PLD's job is to grab attention of all 3 birds. I usually banish right bird (start with banish because it takes long time to cast), provoke left bird, and attack middle bird. After a few times being hit use invincible. Do not try to heal urself with 3 birds on u, u will most likely be interrupted. Now cure urself to full while invincible. PLD job done.

SMN's job is easy for them. Remember the strategy u used for soloing avatars lvl 20? Use that. Meaning buy 3 Hi-ethers, 1 Hi-potion(just in case), and a yagudo drink. Go in after pld has invincible and use 2hr. Now use Diamond Dust (Shiva's 2HR ability on middle bird that PLD is fighting). Birds are weak to ice obviously and shiva's 2hr is an Aoe, dmging all 3 birds for major dmg. I like to go on ICE DAY to further the dmg of Diamond Dust. NOw pop a Hi-ether and start healing the PLD.

U have a little time before Diamond Dust is rdy again so use all mp to keep PLD alive. Pop another Hi-ether and Diamond Dust should be rdy if not close to rdy. Use Diamond Dust again. This usually kills them or kills all but 1 that is easy to take out and is very hurt. SMN job is done. FYI, if u have not beaten Shiva yet, u can use another avatar but do not expect to do as much dmg.

DRK's job was to attack middle one first. All of targeting same mob means mob goes down quicker raising our chances of winning. After SMN 2HR, drk will try to sleep one of the birds.(not the one u are attacking though, that would be redundant because u will wake him up with attks.) Also, make sure to do it after SMN because SMN 2 hr will wake him up. KIll middle and them move on to another bird. Make sure that u always target the bird pld is fighting. I had drk sub rdm for added stat boost and ability to heal himself in case something went wrong. Any dmg dealer will do though. Your choice.

Other
Sleep does not matter on PLD because he will get beaten and woken up anyways. If dmg dealer is asleep there is a problem. Wake him up with cure if u can. DMG dealer should have macro rdy for that. " /p Sleep on me <call>" or whatever.

Also, buying Hi-potions does not hurt. Yes they cost money but the money u gain from winning is even greater and is worth the cost.

And please Use macros for almost everything in pt because one second could mean death in this battle and will help. Even macro ur items.

Drk if you are having problems with targeting pld's target, use " /attack <bt>" instead of "/attack <t>".

Yes you can run back to BC in time to leave area but when u click on it, you have to choose "yes" to leave area quickly if u have mobs after u.

U can use other startegy such as charm and sleep and it may work for all I know. brd for foe and horde lullaby may be good, haven't tried it yet. Also, SE seems to be nerfing a lot of these BCNMs and making it harder to sleep and charm them. That is why i just go out to kill them all. If BST can't charm or BRD,BLM,DRK,RDM can't sleep it, you're gonna end up fighting it anyways.

Gl to u and I hope u make some good gil of those sarashi and avatar belts.^^

bst-charm is crucial

My ls did this one last night and found it surprisingly easy (after getting wasted several times trying Petrifying Pair). We were nervous going into it because of course.... who likes to die? Well, it went so well and we had so much fun I thought I'd put up a post with our setup for those of you looking to do this one.

Pld/war, Bst/nin, Whm/blm (me)

Pld and I both bought lots of juice, expecting a massive mp drain, but found that we didn't really need it. After entering I buffed w/ PrtrII & Shellra, the Bst w/ Utsesumi, and I put up my whm buffs (aquaveil/blink/stoneskin). The last time we did this I used Barsleepra but during the battle found it didn't really help. After resting to full mp (used a melon pie) we charged into the fray.

Pld vokes Macha, while bst charms one of the Nemans and sets it against the other, and whm keeps pld and bst alive. Macha uses dispelga, so it's best for the whm to try and stay far enough away to not get hit by it. Dispelga can knock off Protect, so watch out for that. While the two Nemans are duking it out, bst and pld are hammering away at Macha.

After the first Neman dies, bst sets it against Macha, until Macha is finished. Then we wait for charm to wear off the last Neman and finish it. The first time we did this, the bst used his 2hr, forgetting that he didn't have the Release ability. This makes the charmed animal stick around for 30 minutes... Enough said. We had to zone out. So don't do something stupid and waste your orb.

We did it twice after that using the same strategy... it was so easy... /em yawns... Total Drops: Bird Feather/Sardonyx/Healer's Earring/Horn Quiver/Sarashi (w00t!)

We went back to jueno to get more orbs and tried it again. This time we learned another crucial lesson. Everything goes to **** in a handbasket if the Bst can't land his charm. Both birds are attacking the bst, pld is getting hacked at by Macha and I'm getting aggro from them all from trying to keep the fighters alive.

Just remember that if it starts looking bad, you can always "run away." If you can make it back to the circle without dying.... lol.

Hope this helps! :)

well, first night we did this we went at it like this.... BST RDM DRG(me), we tried it twice in this combo, both times went the same, badly, charm didnt hold, sleep didnt hold.

Second night did it with a differnt set up and differnt people, BST BLM DRG(me).

First time was unlucky, blm took to much hate, died, then me and the bst died, second time was better, we took down the macha, i was killed by the Neman, so was the blm, but the bst just finished them both of alone.

drops were, crummy now i gota farm seals to do this sime more.

PT setup: 29 smn/whm, 30drk/rdm, and 30 pld/war.

Summoner had no gear on. Drk had good gear and pld had latest gear for his lvl (expansion armor).

Strategy- we buff first. aerial armor, shining ruby, pld protect II and shell us, food (fishkabobs were used for pld and drk), yagudo drink (forgot to bring it ><), aquaveil, 2 hi-potions for pld and like 6 for drk lol), and barsleepra since these birds tend use sleepga.

PLD goes in and banish's right bird, provokes left bird, and attacks middle bird. Then he uses invincible, BUT GUESS WHAT?! Pld didn't have 2 hour ready so we won it without it. Now u know it's possible without pld 2 hr (^^) Now i, smn, use shivas two hour on middle bird and then release shiva since i have 1 min to do it again, not really useful keeping shiva out and wasting mp. use a juice and a hi-ether. heal for almost 1 min. drk uses sleep on left bird (didn't work btw) .after 1 min of curing my mp is almost gone so i pop another hi-ether and start casting shiva, do two hour, pop another hi ether, start curing again.by this time 2 birds were gone and i was peeing myself. killed last bird and got drops. Noone died and we had fun.

Drops: bird feather(Woot), Healers earring, dispel scroll, and beaters earring.

not bad but hoping for avatar belt next time.
