Just did this fight last night with the following set-up:

BLM/WHM 75 (meleeing with scythe)
WHM/SMN 75 (me)

These aren't too bad. One of them casts Slowga a LOT, they have pretty vicious damage potential, and are able to Dispel your buffs but we still did it without it getting too scary. I popped a Yag drink and did a Devotion on the BLM, so that helped. Just have mages stand well back.

hehe <sarcasm> maybe theya re right and maybe gwentomnion is an idiot </sarcasm> heh i hjhope people start to get the point of things....o yeah just to mention this in an offhand manner most Mission, Quest, or other NM's do drop crystals when you have a signet...tho that right there was obvious..i wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page so that we dont have another <sarcasm> </sarcasm> thing again in refrence to NM's

This is a NM for the Bastok Mission 6-1. It pops along with Western Sphinx, when you trigger a ???.

Um, actually, the first NIN AF quest involves killing a pair of NM spiders in Eastern Altepa Desert. Trust me on this one, I did it just last night (5 people took about 2 minutes to kill both. Then the same 5 joined up with 4 others, and took over 5 minutes killing the Dragoon AF1 NM bug).

Not every NM has to have a drop, there are such things as quest/mission NMs...which is what this is.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 04 2004 at 10:12 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i dont get your post, are you stupid?
# Mar 23 2004 at 10:44 AM Rating: Decent

sorry, but do to the infailable nature of this, it is quite clear that square is just ******** us over again by having yet another nm that drops naught but crystals. What bastards! well, at least i have something other than wind elementals and yagudos to fight for farming wind crystals now.
