It's been a long while since I've done Bomb Queen, but my social decided to try lowmanning this recently, and after much discussion on tanks, healing, and convincing my lil' sister that we won't wipe horribly, we 6manned it last night :D
My mnk/nin tanked o.o it was ridiculously easy to both tank and kill. I remember doing this thing w/ full alliances back in newb endgame days, and people dying to random aggro before they got to the ???.
We went as mnk, war, blu, thf, rdm and brd. Rdm never came close to running out of mp, and he only had to cure my war/sam friend who can get a smidge too happy with random 2hr usage whenever he feels like seeing big numbers, and then gets flared :D
I started first fight wearing full eva gear and swapped to dd/haste by the third fight, without any detriment. Really, the mob never hit me. The spawns were stupidly easy to kill w/ the blu and the thf, and it took about 4-5 minutes per fight.
