Well I soloed this 2night. My rdm friend was going 2 help but he dced and didnt come back so i figured i would try it solo.

fought it as nin/thf

most important thing was to keep enfeebles up. I was able to go from ichi to ichi quite a few times. I got hit a total of 2-3 times just from him getting lucky and not missing with a double atk.
damage was from 200-250 so not 2 bad. Good luck all

Went there, myself (nithra rdm75/whm), my bro's char (elv rng75/cor) and a friend (elv nin75/war).

After few secs the NIN was at the brink of death (~200HP left). . .turned out he slightly underestimated the NM. Having learned his lesson he paid attention and took no dmg for the rest of the fight anymore (as noted above, dmg around 200-300 a non-crit). The rng did pretty much nothing except missing EES. . .well

Soloable by the usual calsses (smn, nin, thf, mnk, rdm) with a little luck & skill. I'd suggest NIN/DRK for stun.

Just fought this NM yesterday with this set up:
71 War/Nin (me)
71 Brd/Whm Cheroni
71 Rng/Nin Genais
71 Rdm/Blm Yoshiyama
71 Whm/Smn Iyaesuyori

(Everyone except the Rdm is in my static, so we know each other's routine very well =P)

We also had a 64 Mnk/War but he DCed pretty early into the fight.

I put on full AF and def food and tanked the entire fight. With Haste + Elegy + Slow Greenman was very easy to blink tank even with just Utsusemi Ichi. The only real threat was when it uses Leaf Storm which takes out 2 - 3 shadows at once. When shadows are down, it hits me for 150 - 200 damage and 250 critical (that's with 450 def and +15 vit), however with Haste + Elegy + Slow I can get shadows up within 1 - 2 hits after Leaf Storm. No one was ever in serious danger of dying except me whos HP dropped to 500 two to three times after the Greenman double attacked + WS, but other than that, really easy fight.

Heres to any future War's planning to get this kickass WS. It's definitely possible to tank this NM yourself pre lvl 74, but just make sure you have a Rdm and Brd to cast Elegy and Slow, as well as keeping you hasted the entire fight.

Here's a tip for anyone out there on this NM. I couldn't find JACK on info for this guy except people commenting on the "sword" mistake. So, here's the facts:

Took him down 2 different times and my pt make up was:

73 nin/war
72 war/nin (me)
73 whm/smn
74 rng/nin
72 drk/thf

The whm had 680ish MP when I spawned it and used Benediction near the end b/c Ninja took some heavy dmg late in the fight. Other than that, very very easy fight. 2nd fight make up was this:

73 nin/war
72 war/nin
71 drk/thf
70 whm/smn
70 rdm/blm

This was a much easier fight than the 1st time. Dunno why, was a different ninja each fight though. He hit me for 200-300 dmg each time (with DD gear and berzerk on) so I'm sure either a pld or nin can tank it np. Ninja was just easy for me to get ^^; Hope this helps you all!

Don't worry, with time and updates they will add new things. They often do this, add the monster first, then wait untill it's drops are confirmed latter on and add em on an update.
