Promyvion-Holla : Fairy Run
16 people went, and all but four died. Here's our story...
Floor One: Cake. I don't have to repeat it again.
Floor Two: No biggies here either.
Floor Three: We lost two people while fighting five IT mobs. It sucked, but we raised and went on the way.
Floor Four: Ran a bit, found the spire.
Some of these posts may indicate that getting to the spire is the hard part.
We had our alliance, and a JP alliance mowing everything down on the way, calling for help on the mobs and working together on the receptacles. Like I said, no major problems getting there...but the spire *can* and *will* kick your ass.
Our pt makeup on the most successful try against the NM was PLD/WAR, RDM/NIN, BLM/WHM, WHM/BLM, SMN/WHM and DRG/WAR. We knocked off maybe 1/4th of its health, and then it ate us alive. I cannot see a possible strategy here. If you buff, it uses your buffs against you. If you don't buff, you die too quickly. It has a nasty AoE attack (that does not hit everyone in the arena, thank god) and Utsusemi is a absolute godsend. I just can't see an effective way to damage it fast enough to make it fall.
The key has to lie in these animas. Has *anyone* tried them yet?
