Im closing in on being ready to start farming my attestation for my GK. The NM is Velosareon. His pop item is dropped from Hydra SAM/DRK/RNG. Normally for dynamis im sam/dnc and my duo partner is thf/dnc. Does anyone have any experience with these mobs? Will we be able to duo them or do we need more ppl. He has pretty much every job and i have sam/nin/thf/blm. Thanks in advance for any info or strategies

Take in a party of five. First you can only hold one trigger item. Running back and forth to get triggers, and kill mobs for triggers is time consuming. I did it with four people. It sucked for fifth quest when I had to find people for last farm and fight.

Three could kill it, providing one is a tank, healer and DD. But five makes it easy.

This is assuming you will do the 85-90 quest.. If its just for one run, then three people can work well.

I haven't fought Velosareon, but I did Goublefaupe with 4--and I have no doubt he could be duoed--so I'd at least give it a try.

i have another friend that sometimes joins us in dynamis who will help cuz hes gonna need one soon also. i didnt realize the same NM for attestation was the same for the trials. More focused on finishing this long road before i start researching trials. Can NIN,sam or thf, whm trio him? trying not to recruit too many ppl so we can still turn this into a currency run afterwards and we all play super late EST so not much other ls members online to help.

Probably depends on the NM, but your NM sounds like DD + WHM or RDM should be able to duo.

I tried my hand at duoboxing Quiebitiel (BRD/BLM/WHM hydra NM) this morning for my Mandau trial, THF+RDM. Got the first kill without much hassle, but on my 2nd pop I wound up with links since the NM was too busy trying to spam AM on me, then I got caught off guard on a spell and got one shotted. Then my RDM died so now we're both weak. Did I mention we were down to our last 10 mins? Despite that, I managed to get it to 3%...then it uses Benediction. >_> I was so heated...

Just wanted to share that lol...but these NMs don't seem all that tough to duo as long as you avoid links and stuff.

We've duo'd Mildaunegeux on BST with Dipper.
Pets only, took about 4 minutes.

Easily. Duo'd Dagourmarche (bst and rdm) and Mildaunegeux (whm and nin/ rdm and nin). The most difficult part of this section is getting the pop item..
You have drg, blu, mnk, nin, war and blm? Can you come bard? Come bard.

I did lvl 90 trial with PLD and THF. Was rough but doable. Should be easy at 99.

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

I thought of it first:

Solo'd Dragomarche (sp?) for my attestation of bravery
Solo'd Dark Dragons in Dyna Xarc for Necropsyche
Solo'd Animated Tabar for Runaeic Fragment
...All I have left to do is get a crap load of coins... ><
Dunno about SAM, but the BST relic is completely soloable by a BST. I did a trial run on Dragomarche for the attestation and first try, I wiped when I almost had him. I got too close as he spams Astral Flow with Fenrir. Second try and first kill, got the drop.

If you can't solo your's, you can probably low man it.
Good luck!!!

Most can be duod. However, I would suggest using 'real' sub jobs. Just give up on coins for 1 run and go with a setup you would use to kill any other hard mob. Thf dnc isnt capable of tanking anything hard and thf/nin you wont have nearly enough cures. Ideally just bring a mage+melee and played properly and defensively should be able to down any of them. Or a bst :P

Ive done Quibetwhatever as Thf/nin+rdm/whm pretty easy. So long as you dont get any links (which is only a prob for him since hes not safe in a tower) and the bst/smn/drg one (gotta sleep that avatar). The mobs really arent that bad, just have to watch out for their dangerous 2hours. If you get unlucky with 3rd eye down when he EES you could be pretty boned. Sam/Nin+Mage would probably be much, much safer. Sam2hour can spam that AOE move 2handed fomors use, but can blink with shadows. Similar with Drk 2hour. Shadows basically stop all his 2hours youd be facing, just grab a mage if possible. Otherwise you will be rolling the dice with 3rd eye and relying on 2 /dnc for cures, and a thf that is likely to eat it if they get hate. Do-able probably just to get your attestation even if it takes a while, but you are going to need to be safer and more efficient to get teh 5x kills done for the later trial in 1-2 runs unless you want to just grind at it day after day.
