He is described as being a dragon with three heads, one being of a dog's, one a man's, and the other a griffon's, though he was also described as having two dragon heads, with the third being a man's.

I was camping Bune on Titan last night for TOD. Of course, I was killed. I expected that, so no big deal. But when I came back on, it had just happened 10 minutes before. And some RDM/NIN was soloing him. @_@

I know it "can" be done but I had never seen it myself. It takes a lot of skill and of course, some luck, to be successful. But Stewert of Titan managed beautifully. :)

We were chatting the entire time and he was bemoaning the double/triple attacks and the rage. But he managed to make ever paralyze stick, which definitely helped. He didn't use any weapon at all...only magic. He whittled it down slowly. He was hume, I think...not sure. But definitely not Taru..so I'm goign to assume he brought potions to help keep his MP up. Otherwise, he was very talented and didn't panic.

Sadly, he didn't get the sword. He deserved it though.

Out of the 19 times me and my friends have camped this ****** he has only dropped one sword. We only lost claim a few times and we even killed him with TH4 and TH3 multiple times and he is just one stubborn piece of ****. On New year's he drop one sword and cause I was partying that night I had to miss run and didn't get my sword. They didn't even have TH that night! Oh woe is me.

Joyeuse is a piercing sword, Enhancing Sword is a slashing sword. I want an Enhancing Sword so bad 5 days of camping still nothing :/ I'll go till I get it.

I'm wondering of 2 Rdm/nin can duo this guy with a relative amount of safety. If anyone has tried this, please reply to this post, because I'm going to try organizing a run after this guy with a few friends who need the Enhancing Sword soon. (I know his droprate sux ***, I've made plans to bring a thief with TH3 along, so please stick to posting advice about how many rdm/nins can do this together so i know how many to bring, and dont make note of just the drop rate -.-;;)
i wonder...
# Nov 02 2007 at 8:55 AM Rating: Decent
yes 2 rdm can duo him just long and kinda need to be focused and need those dmg:1 daggers i forgot what they're called rdm/nin en-spells and spikes don't give mob or anyone tp and since they're dmg:1 the only thing that bune will be feeling is the enblizzard which giving it no tp i've done it before.

u can't get tp but neither can he (btw lol the point is about the spikes is u dont need to cast them cause u don't want him to hit u at all lol)

Soloing hakutaku , sick of the lies, u cant solo him cause of his AoE , mobs with AoE like that u cant solo ..

Avesta, soloing.... Hakutaku.

bune can be soloed if your really good and all spells stick everytime >.>,
once you run out of mp or if you get in yellow hp your done for (be lucky not to get killed after a convert) breath attack = near death if not death with phalanx,stoneskin,utusumi, bune build up resitance to debuffs.
i tryed awhile ago but failed x2 looked good till the breath attack after that he'll run up and rape you, i'm not saying im the god like rdm but i know he had to of hacked that **** he had perfect luck that avesta taru.

it the hacks ppl on hakutaku real solo = hell no
fight hakutaku and tell me how much a rdm can dmg that thing, blm nukes it for close to 1k dmg per nuke and if a few of them barely put a dent in him no way a rdm/nin going to.

got 17/17 o-hat the other night and 4-5 deaths total only 1 per tank and blm's
and doing that just show ppl your not hurting that **** even with taru MP

# Nov 17 2006 at 1:31 PM Rating: Decent
I been reading this and there is no way he solo'd hakutaku.. cant happen simply cause of the Aoe and of how fast he hits and cause of his hp u're bound to have utsusemi ni and ichi down together at some point and then u're dead, if you say he did it fine , where the video , he has video of everything else if he did it i'd like to see it , till then dont post nonsense like he's soloing hakutaku

first time i saw this NM, there was a JP linkshell. They were killing the Makara that popped in the nearby pools. One of the english speaking members sed it was the PH. Bune popped and they killed it. Any relevance with the fish to the dragon?

Ok We went to Gustav to pop some NM, and Amikiri popped so we pulled him to Bune area to fight. When Bune popped himself >.> so we had to kill Amikiri real quick and then claim Bune. No drop on V claw or Sword on a full moon >.<

Good news RMT was gathering just as we pulled Bune. Then all 8 of them tried to lag out our PLD by spamming examine on him.
1% Bune <Death>
# Aug 18 2006 at 4:14 AM Rating: Decent
So me (75 THF)and few of my freinds decide to camp Bune one day, Our 75 Rdm was there and noticed people gathering together so me and my 75 monk freind come down but just as we got there it spawns and the other pt killed it. So i figure just get the ToD and we'll come back <Tommorrow>.

Next day we start camping Bune and 2.5 hours into the spawn window it spawns, our monk Chi blast's and our dark stuns, we got the claim with 4 people against a pt of 9. I go and DE for hate and start tanking it, 75 Dark sits back and helps stun for when i cast ichi while monk is sharing hate with nin sub. we have some trouble on the way rdm dies at like 40% but reraises, monk dies and rdm raises him at 5%. I tell the mnk to 2 hour and bune uses his AOE paralyze just at that moment.. Monk gets bune down to 1 percent with what was left of his Hundred fists and Asuran fists and goes down.. Bune then kills me with a double attack and goes unclaimed.. yes, at 1%. other pt vokes flashes stuns and gets hate immediately, hits it twice and it dies. So obviously we were all pissed, and decided not to camp the next day but just to get a TOD.

Next day i'm the only one there and some gilsellers show up (heck if i know how they got the TOD) along with that other party, bune spawns an hour after the window opens, gilsellers claim, die. other pt claims, dies. now the gilsellers called for help so we had to wait for it to get back to full life. Gilsellers raise up while the other pt tries to kite till their nin gets there but ultimately die even when the nin shows up. Gilsellers go at it again and are killing it fine.. till about 3%... it kills the thf and the whm uses benediction, killing the whm of course. Nins both get shadows up at 1%, we figure its done they got it. then bune uses radiant breath on one of the nins killing him, and proceeds to kill the other nin...... and goes unclaimed!!! monk uses chi blast to claim, I get one sneak attack in, and the monk kills it off at 1% with asuran fists. :D

Now if that isnt ironic, i dont know what is.
# Jul 11 2006 at 10:29 AM Rating: Decent
This HNM is a absolute joke, on asura server I took this thing down in about 2 minutes with 5 blm, 1 brd, 1 pld. we took down half it's life in about 15 seconds, and another half the other minute lol.. no sword though.
Can it be slept?
# Jul 01 2006 at 4:33 AM Rating: Decent
I Ran across this guy and was curious if it could be slept. I watched the Avesta Vid like a long time ago, so I dont remember if he slept it or not. Just wondering. Thanks

Could someone post some usefull information on Bune please? Maybe some tactics, spells to use, it's AOE's or something?

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 22 2006 at 2:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ah Avesta haha. This guy is on my server and he is an ***. Its not that amazing that he uses a dagger. Lets think about why he does this. hmmm perhaps to prevent Bune from gaining tp. If he was spamming WS no one could solo him. Not likely anyways. Anyways ive made this point before. Avesta doesnt do anything that anyone else couldnt do with the same set up. The only thing that he has ever done to impress me is solo ODS with blm/rdm. If you will watch that vid he gets fairly lucky. Still cool tho. Anyways.

Avesta soloed Hakutaku. Shut your mouth.

And dagger would double Tp gain. More hits on the mob, more tp built. It's the opposite of everything you just said... Wow.

Oh really? What happens if I'm using a dagger that's only hitting for 0. No TP gained that way...
# Sep 06 2006 at 1:06 PM Rating: Decent
Thank you necron. By the way tp would not double through the use of a dagger. Enemies get a flat 10% regardless of the weapon that they are being hit with. So yeah you were right about the WOW ! haha I'm not on here trying to flame Avesta I'm just saying that it isnt so suprising that he can do what he does. The fact that he thought of how to do is more impressive than the fact that he does it.

Wrong, they get whatever tp the person hitting it is gaining +3. Also it takes more then gear to do what Avesta doe. You need patience, skill, good sense of timing, and good knowledge on how the game works. I HATE HATE HATE how people try to dwarf Avesta's accomplishments. He is a very good player and should be credited as such. 'Anyone' with his gear couldn't do it or else you would have seen it more often. There are many people with Avesta's gear but very few can actually do the things he does. Stop trying to undermine him, whether it be out of spite or jealous, it is ignorant in the end.
FU everyone!

On the way to help someone get a drk test, we came across Bune unclaimed just sitting there. Being the bright people that were there, they went and got killed by him before myself (pld) and our whm were in Gustav Tunnel. Needless to say with the random job lvls that were there that we didn't try, but one person ended up letting his ls know and they came out to kill it. I was a bit surprised that Bune wouldn't be camped. It was just walking around with no one else in the zone. That goblin that drops the crossbow was up too.
Open claim?

Heading to skill up/testi party, escaped after too many blood aggros. I checked WS on the way in, saw Bune.

party of 5 started. 75whm, 75thf, 75warx2, 71nin. Nin went down. war tanked, war went down, thf tanked, thf went down, war tanked. 75sam showed up and 2hred, brought it down to 3%, then the war finished it off. 3-5 minute fight. No big drops though.

When i use enspells with esword, i do 22-23 damage with the effect, depending on if i have af or af2 legs equipped. I dont use a fencers ring. Joyeuse pwns esword, with the additional hits, TP gain, and the extra additional effects that come with the swings.

I have both, i only use esword when im showing off or /nin
Enhancing sword + Fencers ring
# Jan 06 2006 at 12:45 PM Rating: Decent
i was putzin around for a while and i finaly got one (enhance sword) and i had my Fencers ring equiped while solo. i noticed with a capped enhance at 240 skill i was doing about 18-21 on my en spell damage. anyone else have anything on this, cuz i highly doubt joy can come close to what you do over time with these 2 items at high end lv. anyone else notice this?

(no need for asshat responses, serious question)
RE: Enhancing sword + Fencers ring
# Jan 17 2006 at 6:07 PM Rating: Decent
you were only doin 18-21 dmg on the enspell with the fencers and the enhancing sword?
you must not have had the latent of the fencers ring . or you were using the wrong en spell on a resistant mob.

10 mins after the update we all arrive at Bune. Well 8 of us arrive at Bune, 2 more straggled in ^^. We pull, summon/call beast, assualt and watch the damage fly. After about 5 minutes he hits the ground, oh and decided to drop some Enhancing Sword thingy. Piece of junk so we dropped it (Not really, sold it for 16mil, split between members, and I know have more gil than ever). This guy is easy for pet based parties so have fun with him. First time killing him and getting drop is very nice.
