In order to enter the battlefield you will need to bring a Moon Orb, which is obtained by trading 60 Beastmen's Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno. When you are ready, trade the Moon Orb to the Burning Circle inside Qu'Bia Arena and choose to enter the battle Brothers D'Aurphe.
Up to 6 people may enter and you will all receive a level 60 restriction. You have 30 minutes to win. You will fight 4 Shadow NMs:
Recommended party setup is 2 BLMs, 2 RNGs, RDM, and a tank. Ninja and Paladin are probably best. It is VERY important to keep the mobs clustered close together for sleep. Elemental seal/Sleepga II at the start and just keep these things slept! BLMs should focus only on sleeping. Having a Ninja tank is good because then your Red Mage hopefully won't run out of MP.
Silence and kill the BLM first because the -ga spells he casts will annihilate your party. Then kill the Ranger, followed by Thief, and then Warrior. Once you get the BLM out of the way, it's way easier and once the ranger is dead, its cake. (especially with two blms) We tried a bard instead of a second blm and it was a disaster!
Above all else, DO NOT FIGHT THIS BCNM ON DARKSDAY!!!! If you do not heed this advice, you will fail miserably. The problem with Darkdsay is they just get too strong and they start resisting Sleep (funny enough sleep is dark element though). I went as BLM and my Elemental seal + Sleepga II stuck for all of 20 seconds after which the RDM and BRD couldn't sleep and neither could I. So we three died, followed by the rest of our party and we had to homepoint. >.<
