In case you care:
"Derived from the word 'dvor' which means 'yard'. Living further away from humans than Domovoi, he was a bit more wicked. Dvorovoi hated animals with white fur such as cats, dogs and horses. White chickens were the only ones that weren't afraid of him, because they were protected by the chicken god. He was symbolized by a round stone with a hole in, these are often found in fields.

Peasants would ask Dvorovoi to take care of and feed their cattle by offering him a few glittering objects, bread and some sheep wool.

A misbehaving Dvorovoi was punished by sticking a pitchfork into the fence that surrounded the yard. Sometimes he was punished by beating him with a whip. He hated a dead magpie hung up in the yard.

A Dvorovoi fell in love with a girl once and lived with her for a long time. The Dvorovoi plaited her hair and told her to keep it that way. The night before her marriage, now aged 35, she brushed her hair out. The Dvorovoi strangled her while she was sleeping and she was found dead the next morning."

He is a mean little mythological Slavic thing.
Always remember that you're unique... just like everybody else.

OK let me break down this BCNM for all who wants to win My Ls is currenly 16/18 on this BCNM we have developed a sure fire strat on this one.

1. Party must have a BRD (marys horn prefered but it still can work without)
2. WHM & RDM are the next most important part
3. DRG/WAR (galka prefered)
5. # 6 can really consist of any job

Now that we have broken down the Pt set up lets get down to killing them.

OK first off enter the BCNM and buff up second rest up all MP. Common Sense right?

OK next let Drg round them up and bring them to the bridge were all mages wil be resting. Brd will then sleep them.PLD will provoke and draw Dvorovoi into the center first.But most likley if you have a galka DRG it will eventually end up as your tank. ALot of people believe that a DRK is needed for this BCNM but its not Stun can be achieved by leg sweep to prevent Flood being casted but you can also silence the Dvorovoi but if all esle fails no worries Galka DRG will live thru flood 99 times out of 100
after defeating Dvorovoi then draw one of the white ones into the center killing them one at a time. I can almost gaurentee victory for anyone who uses this formula. Reason for almost cuz well we have lost only 2 times and there is room for error. but i have lived and won this BCNM with 2 deaths in it. so it can be done

Drg should save tp for leg sweep on Dvorovoi until it is dead then use tp at will for the rest of the mandys.

PLD should use shield bash on Dvorovoi when flood is being casted.

these combination of abilities will interupt the casting of flood.

Have WHM keep haste on DRG and PLD #6 can very but if its a melee then haste him as well.

I am sure i have covered everything in this BCNM but if for some reason this method fails respond and let me know what happened and ill be sure to correct it and test out your attempt.

I got an invite a while back just after I had read this guide from Elivyndyr. I told him I had never done it before and I think he thought about kicking me out, but I told him I had read this guide and knew the strategy, so he let me stay. Our party was Monk, DRK (Me), RNG, WHM, WHM, BRD. We each took turns, with one of the melee's per run using 2 Hour on Dvorovoi, and we owned these Mandies 5 times that night. We got very little luck with the drops, but splitting the profits 6 ways we still ended up with 120k gil apiece. Awesome for a single night's work! Much more entertaining than camping Lizzy or the other NMs.
OMFG help me

hi everyone i would really really like some help from you all. First of all im a 45brd/22whm and i am 4/10 on this thing. Our method is very close to the one above except the whm heals the pt and rdm heals me. Well to get to the point the past 4 times i have done this i have had the horn and the mandys dont sleep right. They fall asleep but wake up almost right away maybe 10 secs and like 3 wake up. Is this b/c im not pulling them all the way to the burning circle? The pt doesnt understand and no one is casting aoe spells so its kinda a mystery. OMG plz oh plz help me

It may be as simple as the elemental day of the week when you were in the battle.

I'm not sure if a Bard's songs correspond to the same elements as the mage classes (or work in a similar way even), but spells have their strong days and their weak days.

If you went in on the day that Horde Lullaby was weak (if they are, as I said above) it could explain why it wouldn't stick very well.

OK, I've fought in this BCNM a few times and my BCNM party has come across a great strategy to win this thing. This obviously is not the ONLY strategy, but this will work.

Our party makeup:

Brd/Whm, Whm/Blm, Rdm/Whm, Pld/War, Drk/War, Rng/Nin

Note: It is HIGHLY - as it almost vital - to have Mary's Horn for this fight. W/O that, the BRD is going to take a lot of aggro and most likley not be able to finish this fight.

1) The beginning of this fight is incredibly important. The BRD goes toward the battle circle close enough to be able to cast a song - but not close enough to get aggro. Cast Foe Lulliby on Dvorovoi. This will sleep DV, and the other Mandys will aggro.

2) The mele and RDM engage DV in the middle of the battle circle, while the BRD runs down the alley toward the burning cirlce and casts Horde Lulliby there. The WHM stays there with the BRD. The BRD's responsibility is to keep the Mandys asleep using Horde Lulliby during the entire fight.

3) The mele and RDM kill DV. The RDM's job is to keep the mele alive and to cast enfeebles -- keeping everyone alive is most important! The DRK's job is to STUN when DV starts to cast Flood. As far as I know, there no set time for this. Turn on ALL your chat filters except "Special action by Others" (Although leaving Party Chat on is advisable). This will turn off the clutter and allow the DRK to see the Flood when it is cast. Last night I was in a fight where DV cast Flood three times, so be on your toes. It can come at any time and any number of times. STUN is absolutely vital, otherwise you will fail.

4) Once DV is dead, RNG pulls random Mandy off the BRD and WHM mass. It will be hard to pull, because by now the BRD has cast Lulliby a few times. This will obviously get more and more difficult as the battle goes on. By the end, it will take all the mele to pull the mandy's.

5) Kill them one-by-one until they are all dead.

You should never have to use 2hr unless something goes wrong. The absolute two most important things is 1) the BRD to keep the Mandy's asleep (why Mary's Horn is so important) (implicit in #1 is the WHM must keep the BRD alive) and 2) The DRK (or whomever) must stop Flood. If you do those two things, you will most likely win.

Good luck. I'm 1/4 on this fight.

First time DRK (me) didn't stop Flood. Rng died, we all died. Second time the BRD didn't get any healing and died. We couldn't keep the Mandy's off and we all died. The Third time the BRD died again, although after DV was killed. PLD used 2hr and a few of us got out alive.

The fourth time, I Stunned (three times) and the BRD kept Mandy's at bay. We survived with almost Full HP. We got Scroll of Erase. Doesn't get much better than that.


After doing this several more times since my original post, I have a few more notes.

1) There does seem to be a pattern of the Flood by DV. DV always casts a spell at the very beginning of the battle - it can be paralyze or another enfeeble, but about 1/3 of the time, it will cast Flood immediately. It will do this before it attacks physically. If it casts Flood immediately, prepare for 1 or 2 more Floods before the fight is over, depending on how fast you kill it. If it doesn't cast it immediately, about 1/3 of the time it will cast it once during the fight - sometime in the middle. And about 1/3 of the time, it will not cast Flood at all. **WARNING** These are estimates and should in no way mean that these are the only options. These is just my observations based on about 10 fights.

2) We now do this without a PLD. You can, but none of the Mandys do massive damage, so you can go without. Any good damage dealer will do the trick. If you want a tank, use a War w/ duel weild. But, the RNG will most likely keep all the hate anyway, because it takes so much to pull the mandys off the Bard after a while anyway.

Pretty close to how we did it, but we switched whm and rdm (me). I was solely reponsible for keeping the Brd alive, for three reasons: The Whm can cast the curaga spells to keep all the melees alive; plus the Rdm can convert to keep enough MP to keep the Brd health; plus I am a Taru Rdm who doesn't melee.

I am something like 11 for 13 for these fights. The key to success in this BCNM is the first 30 seconds, when the 7 Mandys are all attacking the Brd. You must quickly cast Cure III once or twice to keep the Brd alive. A Taru Brd is harder to keep alive than a Hume or Mithra. The two times I was unsuccessful in this BCNM, the Brd died in the first 30 seconds.

A "mob" is a "movable object" or "mobile sprite". It's basically just short for a technical term that describes characters in a game. Somehow it has evolved to include only monsters.

Just to clarify the confusion here. The Dvorovoi IS a mob (he's a nasty mandragora), as seen in the picture above. HOWEVER, you can only fight him if you participate in the BCNM40 in Balga's Dias. The bcnm is called "Steamed Sprouts," since you fight a bunch of regular mandragora, plus the Dvorovoi (the black-colored 'boss' mandy).

Thus he is a mob in a way, but cannot be fought outside of BCNM.

edit: to respond to the post below, a drk can NEVER solo this guy. The bcnm is lvl-capped at 40, so you would be slaughtered, even if you normally were a lvl 75 drk.

I was just curious.. On the Utsusemi: Ni page, it tells you all the ways to get the scroll and it says "Dropped off Mobs: Dvorovoi." Should this be corrected if Dvorovoi is not a mob, but only a BCNM? Or is it both Mob and BCNM? Some clarity would be more than helpful, right about now. I am debating on how to get the scroll. Thanks again

[EDIT]: If you check all the items listed above you should see that "Dropped by Mobs: Dvorovoi." is listed...

Also drops scroll of refresh and scroll of phalanx. The only way you can fight him is within BCNM40 Steamed sprouts. Bard for horde lullaby and someone who can stun flood or ninja tank is important. His little henchmen are pretty easy so once you kill him it is pretty easy. SATA is best way to pull little mandies off of Bard one at a time.

Does anyone know how to make this NM spawn? As far as I know it can pop out in the open without entering the BCNM. I want that Utsusemi: Ni Scroll for my ninja and am tring to kill it solo so i get all the drops. >< Any information is helpful! thanks.

no, all defense against white magic spells like banish and dia is MND. INT is resistance against black magic.
Perhaps a malflood ring would help.
# Jul 27 2004 at 1:36 PM Rating: Decent
Perhaps this is what a Malflood ring is for. I've been wonding about the ghost rings available as drops in Gunsen for a long time. I have the malflood, but its just such an odd ring I couldn't figure it out.

-CHR -MND +10 water. I don't recall the actual -numbers, maybe -2 -4? I speculated that it would be a specific tanking ring.
