Just did three runs of this, PT set up was:

75NIN, 75NIN, 75WAR, 75BRD, 75BRD, 70WHM

First NIN would voke I would Kurayami and Jubaku, very rarely resisted. Alternated vokes, hate bounces between me, the NIN, and the WAR, giving everyone time to keep shadows up.

Use Blood Weapon every 1 minute or so. MNK mob w/ low delay, cannot be slowed. BRD Soul Voice Elegy did not stick. Anything earth based you might as well not bother with.

Each fight took 10 minutes. Deadly Hold = Death. The way a NIN tank should handle this is ALWAYS assume your last shadow will get eaten. Keep Utsusemi flowing and give yourself a fresh new 4 shadows from Ni whenever it is up.

We did Jin>Jin>Rampage and usually got TP at the same time, even though SC did miserable damage. . .

NIN need full evasion gear, one BRD double mambo and the other can pick w/e he thinks is best.

Go ValkyrieHost for TEARING THIS THING UP!

(Even though our other NIN died from deadly hold once :( )

From a RDM's point of view -

Ensure that this mob has Paralyze on *at all times*. Yep, you heard me. Don't let it go 5seconds without the spell. When in doubt, simply reapply to see if it's worn off or not. Every hit counts.

Deadly Hold can be a one-shot killing move, so NIN tank has to ensure near-perfect tanking. Needless to say, all melees should sub NIN and mages, Blink can be pretty useful if it kicks in when you have hate on you. (Really shouldn't happen, but with the massive cures you have to dish out from any possible hits... It's possible.)

Purson has a AOE that reduces Max. MP, so mages watch out. WAit till tanks pull to corner before mages engage.

Blood Weapon and his AOE Max MP will be used every 30secs or so. ^^

Aaah, its Lurka XD quick question, do you think a 70 Nin could tank this with a Brd? On top of another Nin if we brought one because I would like to do the BCNM for the Axe (Price keeps going up, and this would be fun). If not then I guess I will just save up for it ;;

Woodville's axe also drops from this. Sells for 2.2mil on our server so in 1 run we made about 350k each.

Hello again.

I did this fight a few more times and had some more info.

1>Fist off its a mnk type mob with tripple atk so i just guessed that it had the mnk 2hr. I am not 100% sure of this anymore. Don't get me wrong this Mob ATKs extreamly fast but i think its just its Tripple ATK going off back to back to back. I am thinking its a DRK now because of the fact that every time it 2hrs it gets blood weapon. and he will 2hr alot. eather way MNK or DRK his atk speed is no joke its like Haste+1 and tripple atk goes off a ton.

I must say as a NIN tank this is the most fun i have had in a BCNM.

2> If you want to do this NM i would bring 2 NIN tank and a BRD. With the 2 NIN tank and the BRD this BCNM is a ton of fun. True you will not set any speed records with the lower damage of 2 tanks but you will be 100% safer if the 2 ninjas share hate the whole fight.

The BRD is MUST MUST have person for this BCNM. Lurka was our BRD and she did a very good job as well as the others in the party. I am a 75 NIN and with double evasion song this thing will miss 90% of its swings. As long as the BRD songs your NIN will do fine.

I really don't think you should try this with a PLD. I am not saying it won't work but due to the Blood weapon being on 80% of the time and the speed that he ATKs
haveing a Tank that takes damge will counter the Damge you do. I know that NIN have a ton less DEF then a PLD but still this thing hits hard enough that even on a PLD your WHM will have to drop alot of Cure IV. I even got 1 Hit once because it did one of its moves when i was mid recast. Hit me for about 1062 i think. Maybe this will be alot less on a PLD i don't know

for the other jobs in your party you can kinda mix it up. WHM is a given as its breath ATK will go through the ninjas Blink. BLM is also very nice for stun.

Good luck all, have fun.

This second time around both Z and our other nin brought Raiton [<3 the Raiton] for him. It helped a little, still strong resistance to elegy. Nothing to finale either. Second go around I was level 69 and levelled up between the first run and secon run, so 70 on the second run. Definately looking forward to this.

Also, other drops include: Woodville`s Axe [woohoo, congrats Walsh for yer new axe] And a Wyvern`s Perch which is a DRG staff [level 73 i think] with some wyvern HP boosting attribute.

Also got a Balin`s Sword [listed] and Argent`s Dagger.

Manticore Hide and Manticore Hair always drops.

**edit**
Our first time was about 13 minutes [on this round] and each new run we got a better time. By our last run we had it down in 10 minutes, alternating between..:
nin, nin, rng, brd, whm, blm
and
nin, nin, sam, brd, whm, blm.

We`ve also tried..:
nin, nin, mnk, brd, whm, blm
annnnd
nin, sam, rng, brd, whm, blm.

Hello all,

I did this BCNM with my LS a few days ago. Was a easy enough fight as well. Because there wasn't really any info posted here on what the fight is like i had to wing it on my setup.

The Mob type is a manticore as you know, My LS setup was NIN.RNG,SAM,BLM,BRD,WHM. I tryed to bring a well rounded group because i had no idea what we were going into. I as a ninja have tanked manticores before and they were easy enough, no real AOE no magic really, Big and Slow, like a nice fuzzy Crab LOL.

Well we get in and i run and voke him swing 2 times and he 2hrs at like 98% life. This got me as a little odd but oh well, had the RNG shadowbind him and we all steped away.

Anyways this is were it gets fun because this manticore Swings really really really fast. And when he hits you he will drain HP off you healing itself. Here is the fun stuff because its a MNK and when it 2hrs its Hundred Fists but its like a shorter Version maybe 15 sec long but he will 2hr 5 or 6 times ontop of hes crazy ATK speed.

I as a ninja hate mnk mobs, but thanks to the BRD with 2X evasion songs he missed me alot but would be alot harder to tank without the songs.

I am a 75nin and when he hit me it was for around 180-220 a hand. Also his manticore move "greater Sandstorm" ( i think thats what its called) seems to be a hate eraseing move so tell your nukers to hold back when they see it. Also be sure to Par/Blind/Slow him as it will help the tank alot.

We did not set any speed records when we killed him but i would recomend against a PLD tank unless you bring alot of high damge to counter the HP he will be regaining every time he hits your tank. Maybe next time i go i will try 2 NIN tanks i don't know. the record was 5 min 36 sec when i went but it took us about 15 min to kill it with our setup so i know there is a better way. Maybe like 1 PLD runs in and vokes then 2hrs and you have 5 tar BLM all spaming thunderga III >.<

Anyways i hope this info helps you all that want try it out. i had fun doing it and will do it again soon

We did this twice and elegy landed once to two times per fight. Same with requiem. [Maybe it`s me and my naturally low chr as a mithra, but i have +33 chr and at level 69, about +18 in singing and wind skill items. And yes, a hamelin flute and horn +1 and earth and light staffs]

Two hour`d just for the heck of it, elegy definately landed that time :D
