Me and a lvl 75?? and a 74?? trio'd this thing... who really cares, of coures you're gonna win unless you're completely incompetant >.< What I'd like to know is how few and how low lvl you were when you killed it.I'm gonna start looking for this guy just to post what job lvl "can" kill him, instead of how a party of lvl 75's owned him, how's that help anyone anyway?Like we don't know if we step up with a buncha max lvl toons with merits we'll win....

1/2 on this drop. First time I trioed it with a 75WHM and a 71SMN and it didn't drop. Second time I decided to take him on solo...which was a good idea if it wasn't for the fact I forgot about demonic howl. I got lucky though and he didn't use it until he was about less than 15%.

He is resistant to sleep but susceptible to blind/drain. I had a decent success rate at landing bolts, but I wouldn't advise soloing unless you have capped evasion with a few merits and some nice soloing gear to go boot. Or unless you're a jerk RDM/NIN that can kill anything you please.
Killed today

My wife, her Whm 64, myself 64 Rdm, and friend, 75 Thf, took him on today. Pretty easy battle, when mob uses mighty strikes, Thf used perfect dodge. Took about 5 mins to kill. NO drop :/

I had about half MP left at end of battle, he is pretty strong to all types of magic attacks, I was able to stick slow, paralyze, blind. Wife had only used maybe 1/3 of her mp doing cures and haste, etc. Thf never got in yellow. Now we have TOD, so maybe we go back tomorrow. ^^

I think people's accounts here already cover most of the information needed to know about this NM, but just to clarify, yes, it will use Mighty Strikes. Also, while there are Warrior type demons on the ledge where this guy spawns, he does NOT have any placeholders. He will pop when he is good and ready. There are normally 3 demons to a ledge, and the NM(s) will make the 4th if one is around.

My party was killing demons for a Samurai in my LS to get a testimony drop when I saw this guy hanging out with the others.

We killed him about as fast as the regular demons there, but to be fair, most of the people in my party were in the 70s level range.

I was in the area trying to farm for sands of silence as well as getting some orcs to drop a letter for a moblin quest. I had no idea that any NMs were here, so when I got curious and happened to spot this, I hurried to check this site to see if I should try it.

Soloing Marquis Allocen is not hard at all as a 75 smn/thf. After spotting the NM, I started by going back up to the top and dropping down to the correct ledge to pull it. I took out the lone Ahriman in the way (piece of cake), then pulled out light spirit and waited for it to cast Protect4 and Shell4. I rested to full and then summoned carbuncle.

It took a few minutes, but at some point I safely sent carbuncle at Marquis Allocen, linking just one other 72-74 demon. I pulled the pet back, dropped down from the ledge, and ran through till almost at the steps leading back up to the lv 45-50 beast area. At this point I quickly used Ruby Heal II to heal up carbuncle's hit points, then sent it after the NM again.

I estimated I had about 15-20s to get far enough away to recast carbuncle. I got to a position where I was almost too far to see carbuncle's HP bar and realized I had underestimated the time I had. I released and summoned carbuncle at once, but this NM runs pretty fast like the demons and I got hit once, then double hit. Damage on 75 taru smn/thf with 281 defense was 120-190 per hit. After that, carbuncle held the hate. I did Ruby Heal II again to buy some time.

I noticed the NM was only hitting carbuncle for about 61-94 per hit. Carbuncle hit back for 33 usually, sometimes criticalled for 67. I just repeated the process of summoning carbuncle, using Ruby Heal I if necessary on myself, and then running away to create distance. Demons and quadavs don't link, so I ran back and forth between the stairs where the Morbid Eyes camped and the southeast corner where Emerald, Spinel, and other same-tier quadavs camped.

It was probably only 7-10 minutes before I had the NM down to half life from carbuncle persistently hitting it, and 33-damage hits add up a lot faster than 4-5 damage hits on some crab or adamantoise NM (I've never done Aquarius on SMN, but others tell me it takes like half an hour).

When it had about 1/4 life left, I summoned Garuda instead and tried a predator claw, which did a moderate 867 damage and moved the NM's HP bar only a little bit (I wore af2 hands, af1 legs, and af2 boots; body and head were austere). I estimate it to have about 5-6k HP since that pact did take most of the remaining HPs. Just to check out damage, I released Garuda early and brought out Fenrir. Garuda hit once for 55 and criticalled for 82. Fenrir hit twice for 40 and 43 and finished him off.

The NM dropped nothing but gave me 130 merit points and 147 gil. Because of the way I killed it, I often don't get to see the two-hour effects, if any.

This NM (along with the 3 on the map) all popped on the higher lvl above where this map shows. It's where you can see 4 coffer spawn points in the middle, at the judicator dread demons.

Maybe SE changed their spawn points or something.

WAR type? Should be an easy solo for a ninja 65 plus, yes?

This NM

Today, while helping a level 52 PLD get the coffer key for whichever AF PLD's need this key for, my group ran into this NM. We had a lvl 68 WHM, a lvl 71 PLD, lvl 64 THF, BLM 61, PLD 52, and another high lvl WHM (hiding info, I assume was 65+, we picked up this member on the way to the castle). The 52 PLD and myself (61BLM) were NA. When we saw the monster, the Japanese players decided they wanted to try it and so we did. The THF pulled and got hit twice for 200+ dmg. The 71PLD provoked and was getting hit for 150+ dmg which pretty much required constant healing. Before long, we just decided to escape, it was too much to take on with the group we had.
