Battle Notes

To begin, trade 40 Beastmen Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno in order to obtain the Rare/Ex item Star 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 40, and that there is a 15 minute time limit that starts the moment the orb trader enters the battlefield.

Upon entering the battlefield, there will be 8 Princess Jellies spread out in an open ended circle that, once aggroed, will slowly begin to move towards the center of the room.

  • The Princesses will not deviate from their path towards the center of the room and cannot be slept by any method. Their motion can be impeded though with Gravity and Bind effects.

  • Besides the normal array of Slime tp moves, each Princess is governed by a single element that denotes what spells they are capable of casting, as well as what element they are strong/weak to.

    • The spells that the Princesses can cast are their respective element's DoT spell (Burn for the Fire governed, Bio for the Dark governed, etc.), their tier 1 elemental damage spell (Banish for the Light governed, Blizzard for the Ice governed, etc), and the Bind spell.

If any Princess Jellies reach the center of the room, they will "merge" into a Queen Jelly a more powerful version of the Princess Jelly.

  • The amount of hp that the Queen Jelly "spawns" with is based on the number of Princess Jellies that reach the center. (If only one Princess reaches the center, then the Queen will have 1/8 of its max hp).

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

Battle Strategies

One strategy involved for successfully beating this BCNM involves two heavy DD melee and one Mage, with the melee starting on opposite ends of the circle and working their way towards one another, with the mage curing and buffing the melee while debuffing/ nuking (where feasible) the Jellies.

Another very popular strategy involves a similar setup to the one above, with the notable exception of starting at one end of the circle, together, and work their way around to the other end, while the mage drops cures and bind/gravity on the Jellies. Usually, with this strategy, the Princess Jellies are cleared before reaching the inner circle, and therefore the Queen Jelly does not spawn.

It amazes me Ni still goes for as much as it does. This BCNM is so pathetically easy, and I went 2/2 on Ni today... I know others went 3/3.

The ring, I can at least understand... Haven't seen that drop yet.

me and my ls mates do this all the time with no problem... and have gotten really good drops too, nix2 and the ring...
setup is
pup/war
sam/war
whm/blm
easy peasy if you ask me.. just do em one at a time.. whm binds and heals if needed
pup setup is rng frame
and sam .. well he just kicks it into high gear
and honestly if it does go to the queen phase.. dont really matter.. cause the health at that point will be so diminished not really a worry....
basically just work as a team and dont seperate from fighting.. just do 2 on one till they all dead

I did this with my boyfriend and some other people from the Linkshell. We broke the time cleared Record with 2 DRG's and a RDM.

DRG/WAR
DRG/SAM

one of us went left, the other right and went around the room killing the jellys

RDM/BLM

the RDM casted gravity and dia as well as kept us healed.

I really like this BCNM... was quite fun. :) However, we did it 4 times and only got the archer's ring out of it on our 3rd try.

just did this on lakshmi 6 times last night, we went 6/6 on fights, but not to great of drops, one archers ring droped and that was it. all else was mostly crap.

party setup was me as RDM/NIN and both buddys as DRG/WHM. it works very well, I died one time, cause i tried to kill with them after the first round of gravity/binds.., but i put reraise up cause i seen it comin. just be smart and dont waste mp on anything but cures, gravity, and stoneskin before you convert. we are all 3 trying to get ni. to drop. wish us luck

Me and some LS friends did this 12 times (so many seals saved up XD) the other day for :ni drops. Our setup was bst/war (she switched to BLM for free warps mid way through heh) drg/whm (me) and sch/blm. The sch was able to use the JA that makes the next enfeeble -ga to bind 4 or 5 of the slimes at once, so that was really helpful, other than that like everyone said, a very easy BCNM. The bst jug pet would take random spells like my wyvern to help with dmg, only a few times did I have to use healing breath. (Plus sch has regen2 at this point, so he would regen2 and nuke when not using bind) We only saw 2 Utsu:Ni drops out of the 12 runs, and no ring, but it was a real fun time.

as lng as you are lv40 with a properly leveled sub and decent gear, Toyr good to go for this bcnm.

As drg/rdm, I can dou this with a thf, I dont even need a full pty.

Any two melee, with a good mage, should be able to handle it too. Personally though, this is where drg/mage can shine. 1 drg/mage and 2 melee will break the time records.

Just thought I would make a quick post, and give an alternative party set-up to the old standby. 2 Linkshell buddies and I decided to do this on the spur of the moment the other night and the party setup was as follows: PLD/WAR; DRK/NIN; and DRG/WHM (me). DRK would cast sleep on the farthest to the left, then Bind on 2nd one, then help us melee from right to left. PLD was responsible for keeping herself alive, while I worried about myself and the DRK. Went 3/3 with no problems, the drops were mostly garbage, but got two Phalanx drops, so it's better than being a telewhore for a couple hours. Anyway, if your doing this BCNM remember, spell from left to right, melee right to left. If your on Carbuncle, and want in a helpful LS, send me a tell.

Just did this a lil while ago. Setup was DRG/THF SAM/WAR WHM/BLM
what we did was pretty much as stated in most posts. Go in buff up, rest mp, and start from right and move left. DRG would take one and then I would take one. Our WHM would bind and sleep the others, fights were roughly 6-7minits. None of the jellies went up to queen status. Our luck went as followed:

1st run: 2nd run:

1,666gil each 1,833gil each
Shikar Bow Mana Ring
Mana Ring Vile Slime Oil x2
Gashenite Sealed Mace
Steel Sheet Ice Spikes
Vile Slime Oil x2 Erase
Archers ring

Total: ~410k ~10k

Our WHM walked away 400k richer, our DRG walked downstairs to drown his frustraitions out with my pie. Me I got lotsa hugs and one annoying as **** sister gloating about her archers ring, and I made a lil oer 3k for not doing much at all. This is an easy bcnm for just about anyone.

Well Happy huntings all, hope yall all have as much luck as we do!

DRG/WAR + RDM/BLM NEARLY duetted this. No joke.

We had another DRG/WAR but his XBox messed up prior to entry.

I was effing and blinding, 'cos it was my orb... then I thought, what the ****, let's try it. The RDM was game as well.

Tried it with normal 2(DD)+RDM tactics, except for that fact that we were one DD down... I'll tell you all now that I got SEVEN of the jellies, SEVEN. One centred and formed a Queen with ****-poor HP - yet we ended up wiping at that point, because the RDM couldn't Convert again and I was hurting pretty badly. First time either of us had ever wiped in this BC as well.

I think that if I'd had better gear (I had to literally fill my Body and Legs slots with the first things I could find, which were Elder's Surcoat and Beetle Subligar), and been better prepared for me being on my own, I could have owned that last jelly before it centred, DRG style.

But what can I say? We wiped. Though my hat goes off to the RDM who did such a good job that she deserves a degree in kickassery...

Done this bcnm over 100+ times.. never lost. Pt setup is always whm/blm or whm/rdm, sam/war, and war/nin. Buffs and rest to full, then melee start working right to left, while the whm enfeebles with bind, sleep, etc; casting erase and the occasional cure to the melee. Enjoy!
Easy one!

This is a very easy BCNM to do with the right party make up! I did it 7 time last night and we went 6/7 with 2 different party makeups.The 1st 3 we went (Me) Drg/Whm, Sam/War and Nin/war (this was my 1st time doing this BCNM!)(we all started on the right 1 1st and worked counter clockwise!) On our 1st run I made the mistake of staying to close to the jelly behind me and didn't get a dia off in time to survive but there were only 3 left at that point and the 2 other ppl were able to finish it off even though it made it to Queen status. Not really hard the drop was crap! 2nd run same strategy start right and work around very easy! They didn't get to center and once again crap drop! (By the way I started with 70mp and only use 43!) 3rd run w/ this group same results killed all before reaching the center and once again crap drop! Now the nin had to leave so we picked up a Drg/Rdm LOL He thought that he was supoose to bind the left side while me and sam worked the right and this did not go well! Party wipe!!! So I made sure to tell him to only attack one at a time with us. This time we got down to the last one whiched formed Queen and it only took 1 shot to kill it! NI drop!!! Next run we just crushed them not even close to the center! Another NI drop! Last run Again killed them all before reaching center and low and behold another NI drop! So We saw the Queen twice and had one party wipe but all in all it was very easy and we got NI to drop 3 times so I was happy and so were the others! I will be doing this as much as possible with the right party make up! (We didn't even SC them!)

..most of the drops are near worthless due to the deflation, and how often people do this. Archers ring and utsu: ni are really the only money drops.

The fight itself is easy, simply have your two dds go clockwise killing the jellies as they head to the center, and your rdm go counter clockwise binding and enfeebling them. Our dds are pld and war, and pld is actually very effective in this as you can play a bit more dd wise, and use your own mp effectively.

another party setup I use is: drk/whm (me), pld/war, drg/whm.

basic strat was drg starts at left, drk starts right, and pld starts at back.

just basic melee fight except drk keep 2 jellies bound while drg and pld work towards each other then come back for clean up (usually only one mob left).

only had jellies merge once (first run) cause pld d/ced after he killed his first jelly.

of the 5 runs so far we had 3 Nis, 1 Archer's, 1 Erase, 3 Manas, and 2 Marks with various lesser items.

we did this when ever we have the seals

Hey Guys, We did this a while ago. It was absolute cake.
We went war/thf, war/thf and whm (I went war/thf just because Horror Voulge is good and I had it lying around and didn't have a second level 40 axe to dual wield besides Razor)

As long as you have 2 DD's who do pierce or slashing damage and a whm or rdm I assume you will be fine on this one.

Have the DD's work together and push one way (clockwise we go) and whm or rdm throw a gravity or bind the other way when possible and otherwise just keep the 2 DDs healed. The jellies do pretty mild damage themselves, you will need a little curing but not much. A solid SA Sturmwind will take a very nice chunk of the HP from one princess Jelly (i'd estimate maybe 33%) so you can tear the little jellies apart pretty easy. We didn't have stellar gear by any stretch and went 3/3 with no difficulties.

One time one jelly made it to mid and spawned the queen with 1hp. Needless to say my friend the other DD proceeded to mighty strike berserk sturmwind before I could pull out my great axe on it hehe. The other 2 times we dropped them all before they hit middle.

The sacrifice of a very easy BCNM which allows most jobs is the drops aren't stellar. We didn't pick up an archers ring, Ni or even Erase in the 3 runs we did... so the money we made was pretty small. Lots of fun though =P.

You could maybe even do this with pld and 2 DD's... maybe I wouldn't risk it.
I also wouldn't use MNK or PUP or anything else with blunt damage as you will do half of what a war,sam,drk,drg etc. will do here which is quite a handicap.

Good Luck, its a great BCNM if your not ready to take on the really tough ones. You might even get lucky and hit a good drop... if your lucky =P

Could my LS do this as PLD + BLM + SMN?

The PLD and SMN are locked into that job, that's all they have leveled. They are Elvaan and taru, respectively, though, so i don't think DEF or MP will be an issue.

However, would a BLM be ok for DD? That's all I have besides THF, BST and MNK leveled.
Very easy

Ok I did this thing somehow with pld/nin war/nin (me) and smn/whm.
2/3 on runs because none of us had done it befor and we died.
Me as 40 with ok armor did about 40 a swing.the pld did about 15~20.
Smn brought out carby just for a little extra dmg and keept us alive.
The princess jellys will go into the circle.
when they get there they will turn into queen jelly
It takes about 5 minutes for the princesses to get to middle
The queen has Strong jelly moves and higher def and attack
It does take the hp of the other jellys but since its stats better its harder
im 2/2 on ni and it was only 25% moon.980k on remora when i sold it not too long ago.i recomend this for anyone who needs to do it.
Two wars and rdm or smn would be a awesome setup for this i believe

This was very easy. Went with DRG/WHM (me), DRG/RDM and MNK/WAR. THe DRGs had rolan. pies and we buffed up with protect and shell once we entered. Then game on, just went around in the circle hitting each mob 1 after the other, no spells, just good old DD with the DRGs spamming HB if any1 fell below 33% HP. Killed all the slimes b4 they got to the centre easily.

Also got the Utsusemi: Ni drop last night so 1/2 so far. So everyone out there just remember how great DRGs can b when doing BCNMs (well at least with this one due to slimes weakness to polearms)!

Did it tonight with me: ( RDM/BLM ), a BLU/NIN and WAR/NIN.
Tactic: i buff myself with shell2 blink and s.skin > yag drink ( not rest to full because time needed for record and not protect, its waste of mp and time )

Blu and War go right and take on slime.
Me from left side, gravi on first, bind on second slime.
Then just waiting, let them cast rasp and tier1 spell on me, i never needed to heal myself.
In the meantime i waited to recast bind and gravi just silence some of them and help the melees with dia2 or some dmg spells. Heal for melee mostly not needed , they have shadows, just used 2x cure3 or so.

Then just watch, which jelly is nearest the circle, and bind or gravi him.
Make priority and after it, dia the one jelly with full hp which will be attacked by your melees as next.
If you have the mp ( take another Yag ) help more with spells for dmg.
If there are just 2-3 jellys left you can melee as rdm too the rest.

Record was 6:19min. , we did it 3times and on 3rd time easy new record with 5:19min on ODIN!
Maybe you dont need to kite them, a 3rd DD ( blm/whm )and you just can run through them, they move so slowly and going down so fast...no one of them ever gets to the circle
No Erase

Well, I gotta say it. I'm a level 50WHM with no Erase. I've tried this BCNM with different friends (other friends doing it for me before I was level 40 myself). I am currently 0/11 with no drop, and that excludes the deaths. Finally the price at AH dropped so I could just buy it, but I seem to be very unlucky with this. We've gotten just about everything else, even Utsu: Ni. But no Erase.
.
# Dec 02 2006 at 8:59 PM Rating: Decent
Do all of the Jellies have to make it to the middle in order to produce the Queen? If one is behind (say rdm keeps 1 bound/gravity'd) will that keep them from melding?
Also, I'm assuming the Queen is much harder in some way? Or is she literally just the same thing with HP = to the sum of the HP of the Princess Jellies?

I'm pretty sure they all have to make it. The Queen
Jelly is harder and depending on how many jellies make it to the center the Queen will have a corresponding amount of HP.

When we killed it the Queen only had 2%ish HP because I think only 1 jelly made it to the center.

New drop? Eh...

So I did this today...Ok, 5 minutes ago it would have been today. I went 6 times with about 4 different people switching out for DD. Furst round: Nervous as ****. I was notorious for the simple fact of losing to all BCNMs.

Record: 1win/17total

Starting off, the first two who had gone in with me had both been in BCNMs with me. One of them threatened to drop. After a long talk we went in...RDM, NIN, BST/NIN. Go through the fight good, but we get the queen to pop. I'm curing like mad blah blah blah...

End story is this. 6/6 in one day, not a single good drop. The highest drop was probably the black pearl we got off it.

Question: Is the item, Black Pearl, a new drop? I don't see it on the list...And is it a new item?
Blm FTW

Ok havent seen anyone post on this yet so just thought id put it out there... if im wrong you have my permission to rate me down... obvious setup for this bcnm is x2 DD and rdm or whm. I have no beef with that just want to let all you mages out there know that a competent blm can handle this just as easily. I have a 2 friends that i do this with whenever we feel like blowin some seals and we have never died. drg/war war/nin blm/whm FTW! For those that disagree all i can say is have your magic skills capped and its not an issue. Equip Regular Seers gear and an electrum or 2 if you want the extra mp. I find i dont need it even as a hume. 1 yag drink per round, what i do is ES+bind the first one then bind the next two in from the right as the spell comes back up. My enfeeble is capped at lvl 70 for blm so usually it lasts for a good bit. By the end of most of these fights im usually busting out the good ole wand for a few quick skill ups... This is the easiest bcnm ever. Point being if you have a job and read all these posts sayin to use this job or that job take it all with a grain of salt not being a moron will go a long way to overcome slight job gimps on certain fights. Good luck!

My BCNM40 Run!!!

I completed 8 runs on this BCNM Sunday, October 8th 2006...

Party Setup was WAR/NIN WAR/NIN RDM/WHM

I only had one shot at getting this cause I couldn't purchase another or so I "prayed" that I would get the drop. I was coming off of a devastating lost to BCNM30 'Petrifying Pair' the night before so this one really either meant I would be farming forever or I would be 3/4 to my goal which was a Haubergeon. I wasn't wearing any special armor. I was wearing Cuir Bouilli armor with the exception of Eisenplatte Head and Feet. I dual wield an average level 30 Axe and ate Meat Mithkabobs. The other warrior 'Redeye' was in Royal Knight armor and using a Horror Voulge and our red mage 'Bitdefender' didnt really have any decent armor on either. We were all pretty average in the armor department.

At the circle, we /random to see who would go first and 'lo and behold' I roll the highest. Now, ive been around long enough to know that going first in a BCNM has a higher potential of failure than the following runs. Im nervous and a bit dissapointed in my roll. Hesitantly I enter the arena. We buff up with protect and shell, Utsusemi and Food, and wait for the RDM to recover the MP. RDM mage says go and we rush the first jelly to the right while the RDM runs left and works counter clockwise. He just cast Bind on the last three jellys in our circle cause after a while we realized that we were just burning through them. We actually Skillchained on one of the jellys and killed it in like 3 seconds! We come to the last one and Own it like expected. At the end of the fight, the other two leave the arena and here I wait... Staring down this treasure box... silently praying that this was going to be my lucky day... I got out of my chair when I opened it in antisapation... BAM!!!

~Utsusemi: Ni
~Erase
~Mana Earrings
~Marksman's Earrings
~Slime oil X 2

I was freaking extatic. Not only the Utsusemi but the Erase as well? I was speechless. Never before have I been so lucky on one run.

Unfortunately, it didn't go well for the other 7 attempts. We won everyone... no problems there, but there were no Utsusemi's or Erase's after that. They all recieved pretty bad drops and I really felt bad for them. I wanted them to get it as much as anyone but Ive also been around to know that BCNM = Risk + Luck. I was visited by ladyluck that evening.

Ive done this BCNM twice now and now joke, I am 2/2 on utsusemi: ni and 1/2 on Erase. I give this BCNM one of my highest recommendations though. You have to realize that BCNM is not a guarenteed 1milgil+ . . . sometimes its 20K. Some people will do BCNM20 for there Astral Rings and end up doing it 8-10 times before they get the drop... :( It sux but I always wish you the best when you go in these arenas.

Happy BCNMing...

Done this twice with drg/war (me), drg/blu and rdm/blm. And second time sam/war and whm/blm. The time with the 2 drgs and rdm went so smoothly I was really surprised. When it was with the whm and sam I almost died but my own two hour was enough to save us. I'm not sure why people are going on two different ends to kill the monsters. I've always picked one @ a time to kill for the two melee.

Granted it doesnt actually mean they get killed quicker over all. But why do you want 2 ppl getting melee hit @ once with one mage if u can just have one person getting hit? Nukes dont matter since one person will be taking all of them... and that only really means more thunder possibly since getting bind, shock, or w/e isnt a problem if they are cast x3 on one person.

Anyone have any opinions on this?

MCKIVER, all you need for this is 2 DD (WAR DRK DRG SAM are all great) and a RDM or WHM and you're set.

This thing can easily be DRG burned. 3 DRG/Mage or 2 DRG/Mage and any DD and you dont even need a rdm for gravity. One DRG starts from the left side, the other DRG goes in from the right side with the other DD. You will be able to kill all of them before they even get close to the center. I would suggest attack food since they dont really hit hard and arent really evasive either. You don't really need alot of mp or refresh drinks, I probably only used about 20-30mp per run.

True, I have a movie with 3 Drg/mage that did this BCNM, but we did all go in the same direction for 3x Healing breaths when the timing was right..

Next time we are going to duo this one ^^

My ls and I decided to try this BCNM since we have nothing on our hands we were bored so we took our equips and gather in jeuno
Setup: WHM/BLM WAR/NIN BLU/NIN (ME)

We weren't sure of winning cus nobody actually have a guide for BLU in this BCNM so trying for a change I insisted that I go in BLU. We took yag drinks for the mages and sole sushi for the war and off to the shrine.

Blu spells: mysterious light (AOE gravity) impt*
screwdriver (slimes is quite weak against aquas type spells)
some other crappy spells

The first run was rather shaky as being new to blu in this BCNM I spam mysterious light which wasn't good as the mobs were too far but screwdrivers manage to hit for 60-80 dmg per cast. 2 death in the first run due to my noobish and the queen manage to spawn.

The subsequence runs was rather smooth as Mysterious light helps to slow the mobs down. use the spell only when the mobs are closely pack if not 73 mp cost is rather high otherwise spam screws. i managed to take out 4-5 mobs this way and won the BCNM without any mob getting close to the centre.

this would help RDM alot or other mages who have trouble binding or graviting the mobs. in the end BLU is still impossible to defeat ^.^

Did this with:
RNG/NIN (me)
WHM/RDM
DRK/NIN

strategy:
WHM enters and starts binding from left to right while the DD start to attack from right to left. I personally like RNG for this because Shadowbind works great to keep the jelly from hitting the center. Just beat the crap out of the jelly's as fast as possible with shadows up, the jelly's magic wont do any damage. If you take 2 RNG, the WHM wont even have to cure you, because yoru shadows will eat the magic. Was fun, but got crap drops.

WHM can be replaced with a RDM if you choose, and really any High Damaging DD can do this BCNM.

There is NO BEST set up But RDM beats BLM hands down and Any Heavy Weapon DD suffices although SAM probably just about has the edge. WAR, DRG, DRK, RNG are all great too. ive tried it recently with a BLU and it worked great too. MNK can be done but they have to be good and have good members supporting them.

So good luck with probably the easiest BCNM

P.S Melee should take pear au lait too to help keep HP lvls up ^^
