Just did the below strategy. Hes not so rough once you get him out of the hell hole he burys himself in. Had to sleepga1/Sleepga2 all the surrounding mobs to get him out by himself. Sleep2 him at zone and zone out. Come back in sleep/nuke.
Silence him before he wakes up. Curaga4 / CureV made this a 30 minute fight.
Also Aspired him out of MP at the end.
Sleep/nuke is a glorious tactic.

edit: Read somewhere that drops are 100%.
Does not drop the cape 100%. Only 100%'s have been the diamond (go figure) and the white mage test.

I have soloed this guy as my 75 BLM/WHM hes cake.
You just have to do some creative pulling if you want to get him. I suggest you have Sleepga 2.
My tactics were simple.
Sleepga 2 the Ruby and adaman Quadavs..This also sleeps the Diamond Quadav. Silence it.Then Drain it to wake it up. By this time you should have sleepga 2 back start casting sleepga on all the linking mobs. Sleep 2 it at the zone and zone out.
Zone in and Nuke/Sleep.
Trash talk

This NM does talk trash to you when you first claim and kill it. But still an easy kill.

I solo this as a Rdm/Whm, pretty easy to kill.

I did need to pull, train mobs to zone and sleep it before I zone out. I love it when gilsellers call this pull a MPK.

This guy is weak, although it does have a decent ammount of defense, this this is pretty darn weak when it hits.

I've killed it before in a skill up party trying to get DRK, PLD, and RDM testimonies.

Well when he hit our 67 PLD for 48, I about laughed my @$$ off because that was such a weak hit, for a mob supposedly 8 levels higher than our PLD.

Also for you thieves out there, you can steal a Platinum Beastcoin from him. Mug wasn't up at the time so I don't know if you can mug a good amount from him.

He does use Benediction, but a SA+ Dancing Edge, Tachi: Gekko, and Guillotine sort of canceled that Benediction out pretty quickly.

Diamond Quadav pops once a day. He is the place holder for Quadav King. King pops every 2-3 days, but ive heard it can pop over 7 days. Clear the room and wait 3 hrs from the last time it died from the day before.

This NM is WHM class, carries a Reserve Captain's Mace, has true sight, aggros, links, drops everything on this list, talks trash if you are defeated, praises you when you defeat it, and happens to be easier than his partners Adaman and Ruby. The wonders of Silence. ^^

Anyhow, not sure if this one can use Benediction because our group killed him before he had a chance to. He stayed stunned and paralyzed through most of the fight also. I can confirm that his partners use their respective 2hr. Ruby used Chainspell at about half HP and Adaman used Blood Weapon at around 1/4 HP.

Let me be the first to tell you: It aggros. It links. The site just doesn't have the correct behaviors for every single mob down, which is understandable. They put non-aggressive non-linking by default for all mobs and then sometimes just don't change them.

Diamond Quadav speaks!
# Aug 28 2004 at 10:25 PM Rating: Decent
Diamond Quadav yells at you when you die <_< I found this out when I died during my 1st attempt at Genkai III Beadeaux. He yelled at me while Ruby Quadav cast Aeroga III, causing me to die while zoning. "You were unable to enter the next area." The point of this post: he screams at you =D

# Jun 01 2005 at 1:47 PM Rating: Decent
either you meant Sapphire was casting that or Ruby was casting Aero III Ruby is a rdm hence no -ga spells other than diaga and diaga II

Looks like he's holding a Platnium (or perhaps Diamond? Adaman?) Mace, so I'd venture to agree that he is a White Mage.
Going out on a limb here...

Since he drops the White Mage Testimony I'm gonna venture a guess that his job is in fact White Mage and as such will cast spells like Cure IV/V on himself and others along with having massive buffs up. Wouldn't be surprised if he used Benediction like all higher-level Beastmen WHMs.

From a .jp site he apparently pops once every 24 real life hours, give or take a few hours, just like Behemoths do. Not that I think there are a whole lot of parties/alliances lining up to take him on. If they are there, they're waiting for Za'Dha Adamantking to pop.

Oh, and 'Not Aggro' my ENTIRE ***....
