We had just killed Heliodromos and decided to check on Aiatar. To our surprise he was up!

Our setup was:


The fight was LONG and during it the other nin got one shotted by fang rush, but he was very easy to sleep and did not resist at all although he started resisting slow alot in the end and got very spammy.
With a little bit of skill and the right jobs he shouldnt be too hard considering both me and the other nin had really crappy gear on lol.

PS: no drops ><
Not bad

We killed this with 6 ppl... WHM BLM BRD RNG NIN MNK... not a bad fight really, like 2X the HP of a Flamedrake... but we had 1 problem... we wiped first fight from a Radiant breath for 700 that 1 shot our taru NIN... then RNG breathed for 625... we RR up... cleared a few more PH to make a path to him and pulled again.... Smooth fight... NIN got hit 2-3 time total and no breath attack this time...in the end we got a scale and 3 wind crystals ><... orz... oh well fun fight if ur up to a challange (:

I can't help but notice that in the screenshot that you used a lot of people. So, I'm wondering, how many people does it take to kill? Or with the number of people you had was it easy?

We were doing Carmine Dobsonfly earlier so we needed a lot of people for that. We had no idea how hard this NM would be or how many people we would need we just did it because we were in the area.

That being said, we had to clear the area first because there are Flamedrakes all over the place. After engaging the first Flamedrake in an isolated area, Aiatar just wanted directly over to us and linked. I don't know if he's programmed to link with any Flamedrake in the area which is engaged, or if we just got unlucky but it seemed very suspicious considering how far away he was when we attacked the Flamedrake.

Because of this add, we almost did not beat Aiatar. Most of our major DD died. If you could safely engage him with a fully rested group and not get any links at all, I imagine 8 is sufficient.

Hmmm. NM flies that link when you attack one... NM wyvern that may link when ever you attack a wyvern... (in that area of course)
Seems likely... I want to fight this NM now :P

I wish my ls could do a run on Rivern Site#A01.. But most of my ls is still on promys. :/
I've gotten random people for the flies (lost on bcnm a couple times and went there), but random people + drops worth gil has me iffy. (I've had garrison runs go bad by greedy people <.<;)

But thanks for the info, rate up. ^^

The drops from Carmine Dobsonfly are all rare/ex, so that does stop some of the greed factor when fighting those :D

I had to log right after Carmine so I couldn't come for Aiatar, now I'm not famous T_T >.>

I know about the Dobsonflies drops. ^^ I already have two of them. :P

But, getting a party for Aiatar must be harder. I have maybe.... 8 people I know that could help, not necessairly would.

And /comfort about not being famous.
How would you feel if you were in the screenshot dead or something though? :P
