Easy duo w/ NIN/WAR and PLD/RDM both 75. Took about 5 mins. Para was only trouble, but still an easy fight.

This WSNM is also duoable by a NIN and RDM.

He hits very hard and is pretty accurate/fast. However, he is very susceptible to paralyze (I think most WSNMs are, it seems o_o). My NPC is only level 60 but I summoned her to help. She didn't do much but haste herself and whiff at the tiger. >_>

He doesn't have much evasion or HP, though.

Just finnished this up, wasn't to hard to duo as my 75RDM/WHM & my wifes 75THF/NIN. she has 294eva so didn't get hit to much, mostly just the ws's which hit thief pretty hard, i just sat back and kept it enfeebled 300enfeb, slow & para stuck for ~2min, grav ~45sec blind stuck fine only recasted it 2-3 times, and cured & paralyna, kept haste & phlanx 2 on her. took about 10min to do, she fell into red from ws twice, but no real scares, had to convert just before 1/2 way point & spent last 10% resting & casting.

Killed him with 3 and a NPC
NPC advanced healer 65

Neither hard nor easy... just a mere VT-like tiger.

Grats Syl on Ground Strike!
Pretty easy

Pretty easy fight, killed without trouble with this setup:
NIN/WAR 75 (me)

He hits pretty hard though, be careful. Claw Cyclone can be dangerous too, it can do a lot of damage if you don't have 2 shadows to absorb it. He used it once while I had only one shadow, and i took about 400 damage, I think. Also, make sure you have someone who can Paralyna because of the AOE Paralyze attack (Roar). Nothing else to say, I guess... Can find a video of the fight here : http://soily.filefront.com

Not bad

Hit my WAR/NIN for 120-180 without Berserk or Defender on. Bring WHM and /WHM for clearing Roar's AoE Paralyze. Don't stand in front of him if you're not tanking him. Claw Cyclone is directional.

Razor Fang can lay down the hurt(700-800), but only takes one shadow.

Hits like a baby compared to the other WSNM. Yallery Brown for Decimation hits for 300+, with the exception of this guy's massive Razor Fang attack.

Just did this guy.
4 Drk/thf's ranging from 72-75
1 75thf (tank)
1 75 rdm/blm
1 70+ blm

all 4 drk's and the thf tp'd to 300%

Popped the NM and the thf sa dancing edgee for hate.
One drk then Sa spinning slash, followed up where i 74drk/thf(hecabody/feet for extra STR) did sata Spiral hell onto the thf. this pretty much had the mob close to 50%. all 4 drk's and the blm then took turns stunning to keep mob from attacking as often as possible. then just tp'd wwhenver we had it.
Was a pretty easy fight.
Ground Strike /hurray

Maharaja means something like "Prince" or "King" in hindu India.

Actually, "Maha" is a prefix, meaning "great" and "Raja" is "king". So "Maharaja" is "great king". (I think the word is Sanskrit...)

This guy is really easy, just a lot of HP though. Normally meleeing in this situation isn't my style as RDM, however, the group asked me to build TP to 300% if I had Spirits Within, and given I have Vorpal Blade it was quite the go on the Spirits :D Hey, 450+ free damage, helped that fight, then I went back to sleeping a gob that aggroed >.>
