57thf/nin, just soloed this guy. He wasn't very hard, but I wound up killing him by NOT hitting him (bolt spam ftw lol). Started out with SA Viper Bite attacked for a while and his blaze spikes where tearing me up...was triple attacking alot XD. So I disengaged and spamed bloody/acid bots at him till he died no drop but it was fun got 50 exp for it too :D.

Toasted with 70rdm/35nin Total cakewalk. Didn't even have to cure. No drop but amusing as he spams burn all the time.

And like many NMs his spikes can't be dispelled. Sucks. It eats up my Stoneskin like crazy when I can't get rid of spikes.

Oh well... Total Cake.

If you don't want him to bother you, just hold back on the magic.

yes he is easy he spams burn and has spikes on, he spawns ever ~4-? hours.
he spawns near morbolger just down the other path where G-9 and G-10 meet H-9 and H-10.
ive killed him 6 times now with no drops.
goodluck to you all!

This guy has blaze spikes on, and likes to spam Burn. Not too hard. Easily soloed him with DRK60.
