Ive finally gotten off my butt and started to get Carabosse pops to work on my gun. Below is information ive compiled first hand from fighting these mobs, and thought some would be interested since wiki only has vague info about how the mobs attack. I have Video up on Youtube for Baba Yaga, along with 2 other videos of BST soloing her. I recorded some of the La Theine Leige fight as well, but had to cut it off before we killed it due to a strange amount of lag on my end. I will put that Video up as well in a few days.

My goal is to have 2 Carabosse pops within the week, and to make a first attempt at her next week sometime. Ill post about it when I get there.


    Baba Yaga


Spawn Location: Near Conflux 4, ??? at the Small pond next to the larger one.
Mob Type: Pixie
Spells: Silencega, Graviga, Aeroga 3
Special Notes: Does not attack

Fight:

This is pretty much a joke. Since it doesnt melee attack and its TP moves go through shadows /nin is not needed. Its TP moves are extremely weak damage wise, so its recommended ot bring out the DD subs. Aeroga 3 is the only thing you need to worry about it, and with shell 5 on it does myabe 300-500 damage tops. It is very easy to out run, she has no fast cast and can be stunned fairly easy as well. Two DD's and a WHM can kill it with no harm in about 10 minutes, BST can solo it.

I think maybe a COR could QD solo it around the lake maybe. Your best bet is to just grab 3 friends on random jobs and go smash it in though.

    La Theine Leige


Spawn Location: Near Conflux 4, ??? to the west of the FLYs.
Mob Type: Fly
Spells: Aeroga 3
Special Notes: Does no TP moves and if Aeroga 3 is allowed to get off, it will spam venom 1-3 times for 100-200 damage. ALso triple attacks a decent amount, but accuracy is on the lower side.

Fight:

This guys is a tad harder then Baba. My setup was NIN/WAR in a moderate evasion build, COR/NIN (Evokers, NIN, Casters), RDM/DRK, WHM/SCH. Our strategy was for the RDM to cast stun everytime Leige Aerogaed and if it resisted for ME (COR/NIN) to use flat blade. Once enfeebles are on Leige is pretty easy to tank, but will hit pretty hard if he gets a couple of lucky triple attacks, so have your WHM be ready. The fight took about 20 minutes or so and we never had any issue with MP or anything until <5%.

Hate became an Issue later in the Fight with me and the NIN, but that was mostly because I was in full haste build tping. QD damage was being resisted, was seeing 117 Ice shots with Martial Gun and Oberon Bullets, but I was seeing 200+ with temp Item that granted macc and Matt. Accuracy was fine capped with Sushi and WS damage was normal.

I dont believe it builds resistance to stun at all, we only saw one resist before 5%, then we saw 6 resists in a row from Flat blade at 300% and 100% and several stuns, then it went back to normal. If the person who popped it dies and the mob goes yellow, the first person to get hate will get the key item. This happened ot my group, but killing Baba is a lot easier so no big deal.

Bringing some extra DD is recommended to speed things up, and it doesnt use any TP moves so TP feeding isnt a big deal. I think an Ideal setup would be NIN/WAR THF/NIN COR/NIN RDM/DRK WHM/whatever. This would solve any hate issues, and speed the kill up. The COR and RDM can easily keep it from casting with Flat blade and Stun. My RDM had stun recast down to 22 seconds which fell in the 30-50 second intervals between aeroga 3 casts.

Update to Leige:

Ive fought this thing several tiems now and its almost as easy as Baba. Flat blade works well and is all the stun you really need. Mnk and Dnc tanks work wonders with this. As long as you have a semi competent healer and 2 friends this is a very easy nm. Ive compelted my second carabosse pop and should have details on the fight Sunday.

How many times did you have to kill each NM to get the 2 sets of pops?

3/6 on Baba and 2/4 leige. I have seen people say they have had worse luck then me. I generally just bring 3 pops at a time since it only takes 5-10 min to kill each one. Hardest part is get leige pop items since i just stalk the AH for them.
