Duo'd w/ WHM/BLM + PLD/NIN
# Jun 08 2008 at 2:36 AM Rating: Decent
I've been duo'ing this as WHM75/BLM37 w/ LS friend as PLD75/NIN37. The fight is pretty easy until the stupid Spider spawns, then it gets a little more interesting. We didn't have any trouble though w/ myself Repose'ing the spider every 90 seconds and paralyze/dia II/slow the NM while hasting PLD. It's just a pretty long fight. When a PLD75/WAR37 was helping out we were able to take it down before the Spider respawns.
lol ima die

Trioed today 75 pld/nin 74 thf/nin and 75whm/blm.Was interesting fight to start cause thf pulled an add with the NM,so i(pld/nin) soloed the add while he fought the NM,we ran out of echo drops like 30mins before NM popped,so this made it interesting.... Then one of the spiders in the corridor we pulled to repopped,i switched to spider,soloed again. At this point,mob is at about 40% health,he 2hrs,we lol. After 2HR finished,went back to beating it down,didnt hit very hard,had terrible accuracy,sh*t ton of HP,antican paladin norm. All that effort and no drop though even with TH3, oh well,be back in 2HR's, 0/1.

From this angle the sword the Antican is using appears to be Excalibur. The PLD ant in ZM6 uses it too lol.

1st time killed, got Dainslaif...

Morpheen (75BRD)
Archanghell (75WAR)
Apocalypce (75NIN)
Niusha (65THF)
Atoc (54THF)
Tianjinn (75WHM) (me)

Purpose: Get Morpheen and myself Star Spinels to complete "Crying over Onions" quest.

As we completed Zilart Mission 11/12 for a Linkshell member, we decided to get the Spinels. So as we run around Altep and get to the Quick Sands Cave entrance, I walk around the corner and BAM, Sand Tarrantula aggros me to sound. Learned fast to sneak up here since everything here aggro to sound, and we killed it. As I proceed leading the party to the Spelunking Sabotender area in the back of H-7, I scan the area for NMs and target Proconsul XII, I stopped and yelled everyone back to the hallway.

They are like what?

Tianjinn >> NM alert
Atoc >> Drop?
Tianjinn >> dont know, wanna kill it?
Niusha >> yeah!!
Tianjinn >> lets pull and clear the room I dont want links...
Morpheen >> Attack Song
Tianjinn >> Pulling

Tianjinn casts dia 2 on some antican in the way, he was BLM btw he flared me, 14 hp left from 972 weak flare I was lucky. I linked 2 other Anticans. Pulled to the Hallway, Morpheen sleeps the links, except one of thieves hits one, Morpheen sleeps them again. I heal up and look up on my laptop next to me what it drops. I see a sword on the list and I am like O.O?

We kill the 3 anticans and pull 2 more indiviually. We rest up, and pull Proconsul XII, he is TALL, fully armored. His head looked like a M1A1 tank. He is Paladin so the usual PLD type spells, dia, banish, flash, etc. I believe when he hits below 50% he will do Invicible. I did see him do it but I think he was about 30% health. So do expect him to use PLD 2 hour. About 10 minute battle since he kept silencing us with Antican Radar Jamming ability. He spams that like crazy and does a few times petrify manuveur sand pit? or something like that.

Not too bad, most us are at 75% or higher health after Proconsul XII dies, guess he was consulted poorly about us, hehe. Since this was first time we encountered him, we expected something but we got a big surprise the Dainslaif sword a few ores. We all looked at each other, seeing it was rare/ex said Apoc & Arch lot on it since the rest of us couldnt use it at the moment. Arch got a new sword. We proceeded to kill Spelunking Sabotenders, spiders and anticans while waiting on pops. 5 spiders, 4 anticans and 6 Sabotenders later we get the 2 spinels: 4th - Sabotender drops 1st Spinel and the 5th dropped the 2nd Spinel, 6th was aggro, we had TH2 x2 and most of carry 4-leaf and Lucky tail so mission accomplished. Considering getting to ZM11/12 we had aggro hell and had to kill to get to the spot since a few people forgot sneak oil. Then again that part of the journey was an alliance so links and aggro were expected.

RDM/NIN solo

Solo'd this last night as RDM/NIN. Had a party of 70DRG/WAR, 67WAR/NIN and 75THF/NIN help me clear the room beforehand and took care of any repops from the spider.

This fight isn't particularly difficult. The NM casts Flash A LOT and Banish II, on top of its melee attacks. So your shadows can go down relatively quick. But with enough +Haste% + Fast Cast, you shouldn't worry too much with recast timers. You'll have to dispel it every now and then, as it casts ProIV and Shell III. I recommend using Spirits Within as your main WS and using Joytoy + Genbu's shield. At first, I was using Martial anelace + Joytoy combo, but when shadows were gone and Stoneskin + Phalanx was taking a beating too often, I decided to go with the shield. It dropped the Danslaif, Antican Pauldron, and a bunch of ores on my first try, so that was a cool thing to see.

I suggest eating meat or +attack food. You shouldn't have too much trouble with accuracy, even with Flash. Bring echo drops and be wary of its Petrify TP move. It shouldn't last too long as RDM gets native Resist Petrify traits. It will 2hr between 50-75% HP, but you shouldn't worry, as Enaero will still still do its damage. It's a long fight as it has some huge defense and lots of HP, and also casts CureIV from time to time. You can cast Slow and Paralyze to help stop the casting too much, but it resists Silence, so be careful of that.

Have fun!

Killed it today with

THF75/NIN37 (me)

To pull the NM, the RDM rounded up the all the Antica in the room and Sleepga'd them, I pulled the NM to the corridor with the spider (which we cleared beforehand), and the RDM logged off so the links would depop. After that, it was smooth sailing. I had no trouble keeping shadows up and my evasion gear is minimal. Got the sword and a crapload of ores.
I got the sword ^_^

Our set up:

PLD75/NIN37 (me)

Fight went fine, brought a BLM along the second time to sleep tarantula which spawned in corridor. Bounce tanked it with the NIN comfortably and let rip a ful TP/HP spirits at start for about 700 damage.

Advise everyone to bring echo drops, eye drops and yagudo drinks as it can get annoying sometimes with its Flash and Jamming Wave.

I also noticed it 2-HRd and used Invincible like halfway during the fight, as we had a spell of hitting it for zeros, but didn't see the 'Proconsul XII uses Invincible' text, idk perhaps I overlooked it. Apart from that it went pretty smoothly and the drops we got at the end were a dark crystal, antican paudron, 2x iron ores, darksteel ore and of course, a nice dainslaif which I got, as well as 21 exp and 1.2k gil :)
no drop :<

i just nailed this guy with my hubby the other night as a PLD66/WAR33 with him as a NIN75/WAR37.
not too bad, aside being obnoxiously big X3 we (or i guess i should say 'he' since he tanked it) took it down with no problems and even had a spider agro. didnt get the drop though :<

i wonder what kinda swd it was using. i thought that was the dainslaif til i saw the pic of it here. i wouldnt mind havin one of those too ^-^

Easy NM

Well just Duo'd this one successfully. Elvaan PLD/NIN 75 and Hume RDM/BLM 72. I knew we were going to win just before the fight was 1/2 over when the NM had more than 50% hp left and the PLD had over 75% mp and I hadn't converted yet. (Still had over 150mp to go) We were both buffed, he was debuffed and both of us were refreshed. A Spider that we killed a bit before the pull did spawn on us, but Sleep II kept him a non-concern til the end of the fight. Proconsul dropped the Dainslaif, which of course the PLD got. In the end, and only because of the stupid spider pop we were just around 1/2 hp each and a tad low on mp. Had the spider not popped and aggro'd we woulda been better off at the end. This NM is easily duo'd with a PLD/NIN tank and a RDM/BLM.

(-_-) As of tonight I am 1/10 on this Sword. Ive got one myself (dropped on the 5th kill), and have killed 5 times in the past 4 days for our other LS PLD. He is also a 69 RDM so we just duo it as 74NIN/WAR combo.

# Jun 08 2005 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent

# Apr 15 2005 at 10:35 AM Rating: Decent
My linkshell went after him last night.. really easy to get to. we had an alliance of 9 players...52-71. I tanked at 64 pld. No deaths and killed him in about 5 minutes. We had one Antican spawn while fighting but was slept. We also got the Dainslaif drop. Nice sword. I gave it away to another pld in LS. I believe spawn rate is 2 hours without placetakers. Good Luck!!
