The drop rate on this katana is awful ;; I have never seen it drop. Yet despot always drops the scythe. It's just not fair somehow.

Finally got Katana to drop last night. Friartuk of Diablos obtained it. Had around 10 people but no PLD and 1 BLM so thf 2 houred and I aga's the pet's. If you don't have a DRK and only 1-2 BLM's, I'd recommend having the melees take out the Slave Globes. Mother Globe can get in one of those moods where she just wants to cast Thundaga3 and BLM's need to be ready for that. PLD is perferred but can be done with NIN.

Did this last night with 14 people, not 1 BLM. We had 2 NIN, 2 PLD and 1 WAR each voke a slave globe, our remaining NIN took MG. The melee cleared the slaves while I started attacking MG with the other RNG, the melee would the pop off WSs on MG when they had TP, easy fight. BLMs are not needed in this fight so long as you have a decent strategy.

Edit: -
Just did it again with 9 people, no BLMs =)

Did this tonight with 10 members 69-75 ,
Didnt use any of the strategies we looked up and this one we did worked really really good.

1 black mage ONLY. although i wouldnt recommended it lol, but with the strategy we did it was fine. Thf went in and pulled with perfect dodge on and got hate from all the globes, Pld came and voked MG after hate was on the thf. Basically the thf brought all the servants away from the Mother is all while the PLD returned with MG to our party, we took out MG within 25-30 seconds apon the PLDs arrival , Cake. 4 rangers
all did Slug > barrage > slug > Icarus wing > Slug > EES. we were all laughing at how fast it went down . the only wipe we had was the THF which was planned to happen to keep the slaves away from us, 1 person red hp (taru ranger squid, hes a tough little tarutaru :O !!! ) and 1 person yellow hp, rest white. No big deal on that wipe, R3 get up, move on, fast kill. This strategy is also used on some dynamis Mega Bosses.
Also stops additional slaves from spawning so u just have to concentrate on owning MG.

But note that if you dont kill MG soon after the THF wipes the other globes will return to MG, hopefully for you guys by this time it shouldnt make a difference and MG should almost be snagged down.

Also got the katana drop, and this was also our first time fighting MG so /cheer for the ninja we didnt have in our party ORZ :).

party was 1 tank (pld) , thf, drk, blm , rdm ,whm , 4 rng,

FreeBeer LS of Siren. Were on a roll baby.

Hope this helps if your shy a Blm or dont have any at all.

Just an extra note: The rangers were out killing defenders for TP even with MG running about ><, I thought I was looking the right way but i guess not cause all of a sudden Slaves were hitting me for about 250-300 a crack, I went down in about 3 seconds after getting hit, ate threw a full Ni in less then a second. 75rng/nin

How to kill MG:

-start off with a -ga3 to remove pets
-1 tank vokes MG while another vokes any other pet that spawns
-mages nuke pets while meele engage MG

simple. 8-10 ppl can defeat it.

You guys do realize that you have a pic of Mother Globe up under the "Slave Globe" page, right? I mean, I'm sure it would easily suffice.

Mother Globe is one of the more fun fights in the game :D

She doesn't really hit that hard to a PLD with Koeing head and hands, but she does hit *fast* and that's your main problem. One party can do this if you are skilled enough.

Usually we take around 10 people just in case and try to take two BLM minimum though we've done it with one more often than not. The PLD will run to provoke Mother Globe and run back to the room. When the Slaves are close he will activated Invincible to be able to actually live through that many hits.

The BLM(s) then cast their highest level -ga spell and the element doesn't matter. You are there to kill the slaves ASAP, not inflict massive damage onto MG just yet and they are neutral to elementals whereas MG is lightning resistant. Don't let the Slaves fool you -- they can drop a Paladin in seconds, a Ninja tank even faster so it is imperitive that you take them out ASAP.

After the initial slaves are dead, just focus on MG and melee will engage the slaves when they pop. Stun her when she starts casting Thundaga III and you'll be fine.

combo brd & bst is good for safe pull without death

Not too bad this one. Just dont ***** up the pull! Ya gotta go past the Olla spawn where those lovley Aura pots ....hover and go past them to the teleporter. Then have all mages backup and get meele in middle. One pt with WAR BRD PLD WHM RDM DRK/ another pt with BLM BLM BRD RDM DRK 3rd alliance not needed, but put some meele in there if u want. (2BLM needed 3 makes it easier, CANNOT BE DONE WITH 1 (easilly =D)) PLD gets his Earth Staff (Conviently with +15 Lightning resist yay!) and Lightning Carol and Vital etude. OK Youre now ready to KILL MG! Have Mr. PLD go in and wait till MG is in clear view and you dont aggro the Defenders (SOUND) on the way. Then go back Mr. PLD and wait till you see at least one Slave GLobe hit you. PLD now has hate on all mobs, use invincible and head to the middle of the room you fight in. BLMS Firaga the slaves to death, PLD gets on MG. Straight tank it. Have at least 2-3 meele ready to kill slaves she spawns every few secs or so (She WILL USE the graphic for Summoning Magic so you will know when she is about to summon SLave) Deadliest tricks here are Thundaga III and Shock Spikes. DISPELL AND STUN and you win. Please please dispel, the damn spikes hit for 30+ each! Not a god day to be a monk.
spawn point?

Have the paladin pull with invincible then
you need atleast 2 blm's for this fight 1 casts thundaga III the other any -ga spell to kill off the rest, leave 1 stunner not engauged to stun (we use a drk) stun every thundaga III it hurts. Keep barthundra and lightning carol up at all times if possible. Melee's get hurt alot by mother globes shockspikes it has a tendency to stun alot more than a blm verison.

Key to victory keep your stunner hasted at all times and kill the slaves fast.
