74 Nin Solo

Just soloed these as a 74 Nin, sneaked up and popped them, provoked one of them from a safe distance and starting getting into him. Kept up paralysis, blind and slow (all 3 saved my backside), had an eva build to go into but still had pretty decent accuracy when it wasn't blinded.

The other one depopped when the one i was fighting was down to about 1/4 of his hp left. All in all, a few slip ups but still killed it off.
Solo'd as a 71 bst / 35 whm

Solo'd the legendary weapon for the zm5 lightning fragment. It took 4 courier carries and a couple of minutes of kiting while waiting for "call beast" to become ready. As was said in the previous posts, 2 weapons spawn, but the only one you need to kill is the legendary weapon. So before spawning the nm's, cast sneak on yourself, then touch the headstone, send your pet against the weapon.

Once it's dead, touch the headstone again for the lightning fragment key item.

They used the shot I took while waiting for my group to get there. ^^ Looks like they had to stretch the shot and alter it to fit, because in the picture I took, I am actually locked onto the Legendary Weapon and the Ancient Weapon was off to the right. My video card isnt that terrible either.

Anyhow, this fight has one incredibly simple tactic that can be used to make it much easier. Exploiting the fact that Weapon class mobs aggro sound. Have the person who is going to touch the headstone Sneak first. With this done, you are free to pull one at your own leisure and rest for the second if you need to.

The fight is not that harder, and with the right setup, it comes out to be fairly simple. Especially when compared to the NM Flesh at the Light headstone in Zi'Tah.

there's a very simple strategy for these ZM5 headstone mobs. make sure your pt stays well away from the headstone, then sneak the person designated to spawn them. pull one at a time. furthermore, one -may- despawn during the fight with it's cohort, allowing you to recieve the fragment after slaying only one of these ugly mugs. also, keep in mind that weapon type mob tp moves have a fairly long charge time, so it's pretty easy to have a drk stun them before they can pull said move off.

Now I'm assuming this is part of some Zilart Mission, though I might be wrong.

I've seen this NM while running back and forth to Behemoth's spawn. I watched about 6 level 75's fighting it, took them about 2-3 minutes.
