Ob Picture


  • Has ability to be any PUP frame.

  • Has access to tier 3 WS.

  • Puppetmasters have the ability to control what frame he is in by what maneuver they do on their puppet. Example: Wind maneuver makes it change into RNG frame.

  • Preferred frame is RNG frame. His defense is extremely weak and attacks slowly. Will take good melee and magical damage in this frame. Warning though, he can still one shot people with his WS.

Well to revisit ob shortly @ bsts and a nice rdm can solo it. One job brings a /pup to change the frames. Rdm is goin to DoT kite Ob around that circular area /nin works best but seen it done /pup. The bst roll is to let the jug pets CC good chase that little #$%#^&6 around and chip away at it until he finally gets pissed enough to turn around and make some sushi. But it gives the rdm some time to cool down, possibly even enough to pop a decent squat. Hmmmm lol when Ob is fighting pets bsts can carefully dart in and out scoring extra hits. make sure when doing this you Snarl your pet before it drops. My group devoloped a numbered warning system for aoe and ws attacks. AoE was always " 1 " While tier 4 or ancient was a " 2 " Ob's casting range can outreach yours so you might not see a ancient spell activate but get dropped by it anyway. Power to the soloists bsts and pups etc. looking for a good small group chigre strategy help me out!

Tried ob with two friends, rdm/nin and 2xbsts
He's not as simple as he sounds he hits hard and likes to ws ALOT.
needless to say got owned twice and decided we need a high lvl pup to join in.
spawning low level znm is simple 1k zeni is attainable in 1/2 hr, so go ahead and throw down with him as many times as you like. drops are phenomonal and sell nicely.
My suggestion is kill this nm with friends that want the parts and put "need before greed" a few of the parts sell well above 100k, but sell slow on the Ah.

When its in RNG mode is pretty easy duoalbe

from what my PUP friend said Ob has all pupet forms mage rng and the war;pld one and can use tier 3 WS
Note; Having a PUP in your pt can change the battle a lot once pupet can manage to change Obs form by useing maneuvers
(thunder maneuver for rng i think)
the best is rng form u can easily kite him arround

rng attacks are pretty slow but note that hes WS still nasty and will 1 shot u if it hit u whitout stone skin

rdm/nin is yur kitter for this battle

he seems to be very weak X spells as rdm/nin i was doing 790 ish damage whit blizard and thunder 3

he can and will loose rate if u run too far from him...and gonna go back to pop spot and recover

he builts resist vs gravity and bind at some point he will be imnue to both
so use it wizely

Dot nuke kitte him and u will win
and remember to have a pup in pt helps a lot
hope it help u all
