I just soloed Mimias and Porphyrian as a lvl 40war/17monk. Used 1 meat for the whole trip up and refreshed when it wore on 10th floor. Killed Mimias, rested and attacked "Big P" with Mighty Strikes and Berserk and weapon of choice: GREAT AXE!!!

Wanting to do this mission, I waited until I could get some help from an LS-mate (Thanks Hohenheim!).

As a THF36/NIN18, enemies only check as Easy Prey, save for a ghost or two.
When we finally got up there, only this guy was there (People camping NM, and I guess... Slaughtering for gil? *Shrugs*).

We engaged Porhy, and... Honestly, I COULD have soloed this rank too. After a blind bolt, the few times he tried to hit me, he missed... And a shadow absorbed EES.
A newly spawned Mimas posed much more of a danger, as did the DC gigas I stupidly aggroed downstairs, and had to face alone. XD

Anyway... Rank 4. W00t.
Easy...But Be Careful

So I haven't actually completed this mission yet, but it seems to be pretty easy. However, the reason that I haven't finished yet is that I get all the way to the top and then something aggroes me and kills me. I'm only a 40 WAR/20 NIN, so this isn't really surprising that I die even though everything is Easy Prey. I'm going to get a 47 SAM to come along with me and we'll easily duo it (actually, he'll basically solo it and I'll watch...). Just be careful because last night, I tried and got a Gob aggro, but they all linked along with their bat slaves, so I ended up with about 10 mobs on me. Needless to say, I died. If you have sneak\invis, you can easily get to the top at level 40. As for the NM itself, I can't say since I haven't fought it yet, but it seems from everyone else's comments that it's easy too.

I just soloed him as a level 41Thf/20Nin. Only took me down to about half life.

I will be a 45-46 BLM/WHM when I attempt this mission (a day or two). I was just wondering if I can get up the 10 floors and solo the NM or will I need assistance?!

Just did this mission today with a LS friend(Thanks again Tan).

Porphyrion was nowhere near as strong as I thought he would be. 300%tp Raging Fists did 500 odd damage to him. Either way, im glad to have this out of the way. Such a long walk up those freaking stairs.

So yeah, I think as a 41 monk, I might have been able to solo this if I used my 2 hour, but, there is no way that I would have been able to make it all the way up those stairs.
I'm just one guy, but...

Does this really drop Moth Axe? I don't think a mission NM would drop a treasure item, and I've never seen it drop Moth Axe ever.

Mimas drops the Huge Moth Axe. Not this guy.

I actually did this mission a long time ago, but I'm reading up on it again because tonight I'll be helping my friend do this for his Rank 4.

When I went for my mission, I was a level 37 THF I think (poorly equipped if I remember lol) led by a level 50 PLD. We took a while to get to the top, but made it, and when we got into the room with this NM in it, there was already another party there. We asked them nicely, and they joined forces with us. I was the only person below level 40, and there were about 8 of us. As soon as the NM popped, I went to target it, but it was dead. I swear that thing was alive less than one second, everyone just owned him right away lol.

Anyways, hopefully I'll be able to find some high level help tonight to make this easy, because I forget my way through Delkfut's x_x;

51 BLM solo

Just beat this guy as a 51 Blm solo. Heres the deal.

He spawns in the huge room on the top floor(near the elevator). That room is usually filled with Gigas, so bide your time until you can pull him safely to the side. And if the Thunder elemental is out too.... all bets are off.

Start by pulling with any spell.

I Eseal+ Sleep 2'd him and it lasted .2 seconds(enfeebling capped)

Cast Freeze with an ice staff. Stay at range so he uses Catapult(the acc. on this attack is below room temperature). I took him to 25% He immediately responded with EES. Whip out earth staff, cast cure 3 on me and then Blizzard 2. this took him to 1%. I hit him with my staff and got a billion jillion keys ^_^

It is very possible to solo this guy as a blm, but you NEED an ice staff for damage and earth staff to weather his hits after your AM. He hits surprisingly fast.

solo'd it very easily w/ DRG/WAR 55 for the rank4 of a LS buddy.
no problem
# Jul 12 2005 at 11:24 PM Rating: Decent
yep not too hard at all. as a 55pld, i forgot to pull it to the side. didnt matter tho, ended up killing it + 2 links that i got, with 500hp to go.
