Just a quick note to say this thing is beatable at 32 BST, it was a close fight but enjoyable. Please view my video on this web site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48bWycA9RbY

no chance of dying against this sucka!
Kind of Challenging

Kind of challenging for me as 42WAR/21MNK.. rested to 942 hp or so (out of 964) and fought him.. I recently sold my horror voulge for a raifu... that was a mistake... and made the fight a bit tougher. Also didn't have berserk, dodge or warcry up, and wasn't using food. Defeated him with 210 hp left, got the drop, and 42 xp.
what luck!

very challenging fight for a 42rdm/20nin.. pulled it off with 4 hp and 1 mp left, no drop

i was just hanging out between G-6 and G-7 when he spawned right in front of me killed him easily as 60 rdm but no drop...

Soloed this thing last night as 32BST/16blu. Found him randomly while soloing leeches... went through 3 crabs, a pug, CC, and a 2-houred leech, but killed it in the end.

Yay for mob armies!

Got the tabar, sold it for 9k on Quetzy ><

(Also, I got a carbuncle ruby off the next leech I killed after Trickster... my lucky day!)
No drop ><

Found him as a level 50 BLM/WHM. I died because I underestimated him the first time, I only had 400 MP and was a little too confident in Freeze. It did not do nearly as much damage as I hoped. Went back out there and destroyed him the second time. Had to sleep him twice to rest, his fast attacks are a real ***** for a black mage. Interupts casting, and while weak, the hits add up.

No drop of course, because the universe hates me.
First solo NM as BST

took on this guy as BST34/WHM17. I needed 2 Even prey leeches to beat hit but was a walk in the park.

No drop ;><;

Me 38pld/war and a friend 36war/mnk rocked this guys world this morning. Well actually we did take quite a beating, but we still killed him. I didn't know about him, but we were just going around killing weapons we saw him and started fighting. I had almost no mp before the fight so thats probablty one reason why he put a hurt on us. ANyway we got its drop, it'll be a nice 20k to split between us after we sell it.
Easy NM

Very easy NM for my PLD45/WAR22, it aggro me from behind when I was killing another dancing weapon and only had 1/3 of my health and mp at the moment. Hit kinda fast but not very strong, his physical defences are kinda weak also.

Didn't had the drop, and it still a pleasant surprise to find and beat another NM.

Yeah, I ran into this guys yesterday by accident while farming Lightning Elementals. Saw him on Widescan. I beat hell out of him and got the drop. Sadly it's only worth 20k on Siren.
Long Hunt
# Mar 30 2006 at 2:46 AM Rating: Decent
Been Hunting this thing for 5 hours... tons of weapons killed. Any particular day, or moon or womens underwear that it might spawn faster to?

Just in case you did not know, this is a great 6th weapon upgrade for your NPC.

Yes, it's been some time since last post but figured I'd put my 2 cents in. I killed him yesterday and got the drop. Sold it for 60k.
Trickster = {too weak}

Took on Kinetix on QC with Stine (50WHM/25SMN) and Nyxie (75RDM/37BLM) a few days ago. We were doing Windurst 3-3 for me (24THF/12MNK) and Stine's running me to Delkfutt's and I say "sweetie, <t> check it please" and she goes "oh cool lets kill it!"

Easy battle, when you have two high-lvl mages kicking the mess outta him :)
would i manage?
# Mar 13 2006 at 8:29 AM Rating: Decent
i was in aparty of 6 beside the "tower" and the puller/tanker said "Trickster Kinetix sighted at <pos>!" so we thought should we try it? but we ended up sayin no and pulled in IT pugil instead. would we have survived?

Quite easy as 48 rdm. Stoneskin, Bind, Stoneskin, rince, repeat... Tabar dropped 1/1. Hadn't killed any weapons, was just sitting there on top of the wall. ~8 "/em examines you." 's from passersby. Fun really... bst in LS then runs by with Kraken charmed... got a laugh out of that.
Got the Tabar on first try

Very easy battle for me (BST 43 when I fought it) and my pet (Lullaby Melodia). Three weeks before that, I had tried it as a WHM 36, and of course if there hadn't been a High Level Red Mage keeping me alive I would have lost (was lucky enough this
guy came by by accident).
Studied the text window and calculated Trickster's health points with pretty much exactly 2000, btw also got the Tabar on the first try, pretty good axe for my BST.
Very typical lottery spawn with Dancing Weapons,
if you keep killing the Weapons repop time should at most be something like 1-2 hours.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 14 2005 at 8:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Soloed as 50blm/whm. Has half mp and yellow hp, had to 2HR. Freeze finished him, got drop, 1/1 now.
easy NM
# Aug 19 2005 at 11:58 PM Rating: Decent
I fought this NM about 5 months ago.. I was 60thf/30nin he was really easy.. I gained tp before fight then SATA Dancing edged him and he was practically dead.. Before I attacked him I was like oh god I dunno what lvl it is I might die .. but I guess that's what made the fight more fun.. I got the drop.. Nether the less if you think you can take go ahead and try what's fun if you don't die every once in a while ^^
we killed this
# Aug 19 2005 at 10:39 AM Rating: Decent
we killed this in a pt ranging from 21-23 of 6 as the puller pulled it the pler was saying stuff like "ur gonna die" But we carried on attacking and after 10 minutes, he eventually died, he is so weak hardly left a a scratch on any of our pt, didnt get drop thou. I just thought it was a fun experience :-)

1/4 on the Tabar from Trickster Kinetix without Treasure Hunter. Tabar sells for about 8k on Sylph, which isn't real bad, but it sells slowly ( kind of a limited market since only BST can use the axe ).
