Solo tips.

Solo'ed it as a 66 RNG/NIN. Hit VERY hard when it actually connects. Was hitting me for 60+ dmg per swing but rarely connected. Started with shadows down and full HP of 1022. Finished with like 790 HP. Melee at 55+ should be able to take it down.

Got the drop! Worth 200k on Midgardsormr.
2/2 on this thing

Soloed it with no problem as a 63 PLD. The only odd thing about it is that Flash wore off before I finished casting it. Other than that, I usually pop Sentinel about halfway through, and a couple Cure IIs, and I'm good.

I don't know what everyone is worried about this thing is a pushover. I was coming back from camping for E bracelets in Delkfutt's with a friend, when I'd see if it was up(my friend warped back and I had to run :/). It was there I quickly built TP up to 100 off crabs, crept in behind it the SA guillotine, that took away about 2/5ths of its hp. Absorb'd VIT and AGI, then being an *** I kited it around for awhile. One more guillotine it was over. It only hit me for 150-200 dmg tops. Got the sword(350k for sale on alexander /t Fhuri), btw I was 61drk/thf^^ I would assume a 50-55 can take it with only minor problems. Happy hunting
Solo-able at 60?

I was skilling up in Qufim when I happened to see a giant treant hanging out around (G-8). I quickly pulled up info on it to find that it is supposedly solo-able at 60. Actually it seems that a THF/NIN 48 and up can solo this with good gear, capped marksmanship, and a knowledge of how to use marksmanship properly. Unfortunately, at the time I wasn't carrying any of my 'solo gear' (marksmanship, etc.) and I died after getting it down to about 30%. He seems like a total push over.

Edit 10/12/05:
Much to my dismay, you cannot sleep or drain from this guy. I just assumed you could based on the fact that he is weak to darkness. Nonetheless I was able to edge out a victory with my THF48/NIN24. Had to 2hr, but other than that the fight went smoothly. I don't reccomend any other melee jobs taking it on below 55; this guy swings like crazy and hits hard, and the only reason I won was Utsusemi, Evasion Bonus, and a lot of EVA+ gear.
(yes I obtained Raikiri)

A new Katana to try out

Just killed this NM at G7 in the nook of the cliff just above G8 whilst I was just running around Qufim bored during LFG, was on top of the Cermit Spine where Trixter spawns when Thunder Weather appeared so I thought I'd venture down to take a look and to my luck and joy he was there. Dosetsu was an extremelly easy fight and I got the drop.

I was going to outpost warp back home and it was thundering at the time. So i looked around for some thunder elems. I was at the cliff at the bottem left corner of the map when i saw this thing. I was shocked at first cause ive never seen a tree or a trent on the island. After i found out alakhazam didnt know his lvl i just fought him for the hell of it. I was a 61 smn and without blood pacts ifrit turned this guy into fire wood in under a minute. There just happened to be a thunder elem next to him so i killed him too :) I didnt get the raikiri sadly but if i did i wonder if my LS sam buddy would of wanted to use the thing before i sold it? Is the great katana any good?

Hmmm...was just gonna go play with the Kraken and my new Flare, and suddenly saw a tree, and thought to myself, WTF?

Anyways, saw it was {Impossible to gauge} and did a quick alla search, no level so figured it was Qufim, I could take it.

To any mages out there attempting this, make sure to buff before the fight! While I saw someone say possible solo by 60 melee, it can be done by 60 blm (which I am ^^). I used Protect/Shell/Stoneskin/Blink, and happened to have tp when I started the fight.

Battle strategy, attempt to stick any debuffs you can, and you won't be able to sleep him. Keep stoneskin up and drain as often as possible. If you have food/juices, use them, you'll need all the mp/hp you can get. Regen and don't worry about nukes, he's pretty resistant and you'll just waste mp.

I had to Manafont to win once I had him down to roughly 15%, spammed cures on myself and drain, meleed his last few bits of health, and bam! Got the drop ^^ On Ramuh worth 700-800k, so a nice little run in Qufim. Best of luck to any mages who try for this.

I just solod this tree at 63rdm/31blm. Highly resistant to sleep, and hit about 30-50dmg to me with phalanx and protect III, very fast. That being said I got the drop ^^ made my day. I found it at I-7, and yes there was Thunder weather

Positive about the 21 hour thing? I'm pretty sure he pops more then that, but his rate sucks and has a large range of points.

I also heard he is lotto from thunders :\

Do you think a 67MNK could kill this? I know some of the treants have some tough attacks.
