One prism powder and silent oil later...

Berserk, Jump, High Jump and would have killed it straight off if it didn't Blood Saber me, my wyvern and the NPC for 78 HP each. One hit later I had TP for double thrust and it was dead. Didn't even hit yellow HP. :/

Thought I'd give the Rangers out there some hope. I only had Ranger at level 32 and no gear for 30 war and was thinking "I'll never beat it. Undead take 1/4 dmg from piercing...". Feeling suicidal I grabbed some holy bolts and ate a Goblin Mushpot (MND +10). I was amazed that I actually beat the guy, and still had 50% HP. So have at him fellow Rangers!

Hard Fight
# Jun 17 2006 at 9:56 PM Rating: Decent
Very hard fight for level 30s. Fought it once as 30 Red Mage/Black Mage with my 30 White Mage/Black Mage brother. I got killed and downleveled and my brother barely zoned it. Tried it again with 29 Red Mage (haha), 30 White Mage, and 33 Dragoon/Warrior. Completely dominated it as it only used Blood Saber once. Fought it again for my brother's NPC quest and it used Blood Saber as every one of it's TP moves and we all left that battle with less than 40 hp. Dragoon's wyvern saved us with Frost Breath =D

Sorry, but forgot to add this:

If you spawn the skeleton while standing as far away from the stairs as possible, that's where the Gazer usually is, then you can do the fights without worrying about the Gazer's aggro.

I took this guy down [AND somehow lived through a stupid Gazer aggro 80% of the fight] as a 34 Thief back in the day... With a horribly underleveled sword skill. Was just a matter of letting the NPC do most of the work.
Worked much better... Since I took too much hate the first time I tried, and got mauled.

Anyway... Just took him out for someone.
NM seems to have a little under 1200 HP.

While it's obvious after the above line, for those that asked, anyone can help you with this fight if you really need it.
Same can't be said about the dragon fight if they've done it before, it seems, but I found this guy harder than the dragon anyway. >.>;

Yeah... <.<
Good luck, and watch out for that freakin' Gazer. >.< It likes to wander around a little too much.

Does anyone know if you can bring a party into the fight? With a CS, I'm unsure a bit.

I'm just curious and have yet to do this quest (I'm actually quite scared and don't want to waste silent oils to get to the guy). Does anyone know if you can do this with a party?

L37 BLM... This thing hits like the devil - it pwned me in about 30 seconds... got about 1 shot off.

I suspect this needs to be done as melee class since mages have no chance with it.

NPC didn't even engage properly... just sat there with a useless sword doing about 5 damage..

For mage classes I suspect 40+ is a minimum.

Silence ftw! Of course I was a lvl 50 RDM at the time. But as long as you kept it silenced, it can cast anything annoying.
lvl 38 sam/rng
# Apr 10 2006 at 5:23 AM Rating: Decent
I plan on going at this with a 38sam/rng and seeing how it goes. I have the best armor available to my level (in my own opinion atleast). Hopefully it'll go well with out too much of a problem. I know that this guy casts sleep, soooooo maybe... I can use a Poison potion before going in just in case and bring some High potions for some back up incase something goes wrong. I'll Meditate untill 300%tp and when meditate is recharged again I'll spawn him. I'll eat some sushi and maybe use a Selbina Milk if I think it's neccesary.

Bringing the arrows with an additional effects could sway the battle a little further into my direction, but I don't know if skeletons can be poisoned or not. I'll have to see for myself if I can't find out from someone in jeuno.

I'll use Tachi:Enpi > 2-hour > Tachi:Enpi = distortion. Then I'll pull off another distortion and then use meditate for one more weapon skill. That hopefully should take him down atleast 1/2 if everything goes correctly. 5 weapon skills should kick this guy's butt pretty hard if it is as easy as it sounds.

A Linkshell member told me he soloed the Skeleton and dragon and it was too easy for him, so I'm not expecting it to be too complicated.

I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. We'll see just how hard this notorious monster REALLY is...=P
FINISHED RESULTS as 37sam/rng instead of 38sam/rng!!!!!!!!! (one level difference)

Okay.. i didn't expect the Gazers to check "Very Tough" on me. So I use a silent Oil to get by them because they are sound agro only. SNEAK spell would do well here as well. There is only one in the way between the "???" and the exit back to batallia downs.

I prepared myself like I stated before but with just regular wooden arrows and instead of a Poison Potion, I used Sole Sushi (it has resistance to sleep if i'm not mistaken).

Here is how it went down: I ran over to the "???" and tried to fly through the cut scene incase my silent oil wore off.

~Jugowa(My NPC)Provokes
~Redpage hits Namorodo for 77 damage!
*it was at this point his provoke did NOTHING and I stole agro. My NPC didn't get hit once.*
~Namorodo casts gravity
~Redpage uses Tachi: Enpi
weapon skill damage: 215
critical hit:128
weapon skill damage: 213
weapon skill damage: 180
regular attack: damage: 60
weapon skill damage: 108
~ Namorodo uses Hell Slash damage:68
~Redpage weapon skill damage: 126

It was at this point I defeated Namorodo.
It was... VERY easy. I came VERY prepared.
I took 146 damage and I gave out 1107 damage.
Don't be afraid to take him down at 37 it's an easy challange. Skeletons are weak agaist Fire and Light. Even casting CURE can do damage to this monster. I have a feeling I could have killed Namorodo at a much lower level.

***On my last note... make sure you bring a second Silent Oil or cast sneak a 2nd time for when your leaving. I forgot to use the oil and ran smack into the Gazer I was so careful to avoid. The gazer did 428 damage to me over time in four attacks and killed me. I couldn't outrun the Gazer because I was still effected by the Skeleton's Gravity.

Goodluck and Enjoy! I hope this helps you determine if you can comeplete this or not.

I did this last night as RDM34/BLM17

silence/dispell/dia II
I had enfire up and blaze spikes and threw out the odd Fire at him.

took him out easy, NPC provoked once so needed a quick cure incase he did the Shadow of Death move which can cause a good 100-150 damage on both me and the NPC...

I was pretty inpressed with myself :)
RE: ouch
# Feb 05 2006 at 8:26 PM Rating: Decent
With a mage sub your 37 drg should have no problem. I took it out using my whm and only cast one spell. Though my whm was a bit higher at the time (45) it never even hit me or my npc hard enough to make me cure. The only spell I cast was potectII on the npc.
# Nov 25 2005 at 2:41 AM Rating: Decent
Easiest thing in the world.
I am a 39rdm/19blm.. I thought about buying a reraise for this guy
I walk up and open with Bio II, he Sleeps me.. I think "great.. dead npc" till my NPC stars kickin his ***! the skele was "intimidated by Raka's presence" TEN TIMES! I woke up, Cure III/Protect II her.. turn to him Stone II and Blizz spam... ... he's a joke.. ALL my buffs dropped while asleep aside shellII/protectII and he hit me for 25dmg highest hit.. what a joke.. my thoughts? level 30+ sneak past Gazers = easy prey skele
