I just beat Maat yesterday, so my battle plan is still fresh in my head. "Technically" it took me 4 monk tests to beat him, but I don't count the 1st try, since I was soo nervous about the fight that I took to long setting up, and the battle timer ran out O_o (yes, you may laugh now -_-)
The 2nd time, I made the BIG mistake of taking a "Green Drop" that I got from the easter egg event. All I knew was that it stacks with food...which is "True"! The BIG problem is that is disables your ability to take any more medicane after that...so NO IC wing and NO potion...thus I died -_-
3rd time, I "almost" played it perfect....except I took the IC wing too soon and I tried using a hyper potion after it (yes I took a hyper potion, instead of a vile elixer +1, another mistake), in which case the IC wing disables the use of the hyper potion!
The 4th time (and the winner) went like this;
Kemper(sp?) Ring and earing (the latent "counter"+ stuff)
Purple Belt (yes a purple belt...I'm to cheap to buy a brown belt, and I can't claim morboler for the last item I need for brown)
Note- My original plan was to use Shiva Claws on Iceday, but by the time I was done setting up, the day changed, so I opted for the CC's instead. I still feel that I could have won using the Shiva Claws on a Iceday, too...thus I am mentioned this.
Food and Meds=
Penskilo (sp?) au Lait (the most expensive one of the au laits)
Vile Elixer +1
Sleep potions (at least 4)
Ran to Giddious (thats where my BCNM was for Maat) as a lv 70mnk/24blm. Why a BLM you might ask? Because at the end of the fight, IF I win, I can warp back to Jeuno to complete the quest faster...clever huh?! Important note btw...DO NOT forget to talk to Maat again AFTER you beat him! I've been in to many PT's that someone FORGOT to do that, and they say WTH...I beat Maat but I'm stuck at 1 TNL!?! At which point now the PT has to wait or disbands since "so and so" has to run back to jeuno to "finish" the quest. Had this happen 5 times now...so I feel this has to be mentioned because obviously something is lost on translation.
Enter BCNM "Naked"...no weapons, no armor, no accessories...NOTHING!
Once in, Macro'd the Following gear-
Kemper earing and ring
Start resting to full HP
Once @ full use 4 sleep potions (I used 5 since I had one left over some how /shrug)
Run to chi-blast range of Maat (just to the edge of the arena) and engage Maat, but DO NOT aggro or make contact!
Switch head gear to Blink band
Boost 10 times
Activate Blink band and take Yellow curry, and Penksilo (sp) au lait.
Change head gear to Temple Crown-
Macro'd following JA's;
-/ja Focus <me>
-/ja Dodge <me>
/ja "Hundered Fist" <me>
/equip promise badge
Run up closer to chi-blast range and use following macro;
/ja "chi blast" <bt>
/equip head Feral Mask
/equip neck Storm Gorget
Use Dragon kick (macro'd)
Use IC wing (macro'd)
Use Ragin Fist (macro'd)
Note- for WS's DO NOT use Boosts before WS...cuts into to much time of your HUndered Fists
Use Chakra (macro'd) when HP gets orange (which happens pretty fast once Maat goes hundered fists himself)
use Vile Eliexer +1 (macro'd)
...now at this point Maat gave up on me! Had he NOT given up...I would have used the TP gained from my hundered fist to drop one last raging fist on him....which I was mashing that macro button like mad hoping I could squeeze one more outta it...didn't happen though!
I ended the fight with 900+ HP left.
Looking back, I can easily tell what my mistakes was, thus it wasn't to hard to correct the problems. Also from tips I gained here and from fellow monks in game...it narrowed some solid game plans down, which lead to my victory. The fight itself takes about 15-20secs at the longest...at which either you or Maat with be DEAD! Some might think that its a D.O.T. slug fest...but in actuality...Maat WILL win in this matchup...he hits WAY harder than you do per blow...so don't think you have a chance lasting the duration of a hundered fist on him. I never saw him Asuran fist me...but frankly he has enough tricks up his sleeve to beat you without it...if he uses it...he was just showing off!
Key things that I think helped alot.
The blink band- My first 10 hits of my hundered fist went uncontested, and each of Maat's punches land for about 100 each. I started off the match with 1666HP. So roughly that means that I can only take apx 17 punches from Maat! Put that into perspective of a him using a hundered fist...and that gives you a idea of how and why the fight is SOO fast! BTW, his hundered fist IS WAY faster than yours...even IF I used my Vishnu Cesti's! If you remember the speed of that NM yagudo's hundered fists, you had to fight for your AF pants...that gives you a idea of how fast Maat's hundered fists is.
The Vile Elixer +1...as I mentioned, Maat gave up right after I used it, which might mean that my HP ratio to his "might" be a factor in his giving up...and not that I landed a "fatal" blow. Perhaps there is a point that the computer figuered that if your HP is at "X" value, and Maat's is at "y" value...then Maat's victory is impossible...thus he gives up. granted I "might" have landed the last punch that put it over the edge so to speak...but he did "give up" RIGHT when I used the Vile Elixer +1...coincidence...u deside. Also, the Vile Elixer +1 was the only medicane that I could use AFTER I used the IC wing. Somehow it is not concidered a "med" to the restirction that is given after you use the IC wing, something to seriously concider if u use a IC wing!
Hope this info helps! (^_^)b
