I've been trying to solo this thing as a 50 MNK with 25 WAR sub and had three fights, one win, two losses.

Biggest problem I've found so far (besides the level difference) is getting hit with paralysis. If you do go up against this thing, you have to prep for paralysis. Even with 100 Fists, it still beat me the first go.

Second fight I won with 17hp left by throwing nearly everything in my ******* at him and spamming boost beforehand. I made 200 exp off him with no exp boost, but no mold.

Third fight I tried the same as before. Spammed boost and chi blast, food effect, dodge, focus, berserk, 100 fists. I got distracted though and lost pretty badly.

If fighting it at 50, preparation is vital. Use your food and activate any abilities you can beforehand. The fight won't last too long so most won't wear off. It'll try to paralyze and blind you so you may want to bring remedy along with you. You might even want to bring an X-potion, just in case. And don't get distracted like me.

Today my party of 41-42 took one of these on... We had a DD party though...

WHM/SMN (me)
RNG/NIN
RNG/NIN
NIN/WAR
THF/NIN
BLM/WHM

After taking on one and killing it without much trouble at all we didn't get so worried when we agroed 3 more during the night. Never died once from them. Got close...
How to kill 'em

Trick in taking these things in exp is having a VERRRRRY Sharp whm. If the whm has a cure 3 ready and starts casting when they see the Exo ready the ability - youre fine. But they will follow Very shortly with attacks and abilities to kill the tank - stay sharp!

PLD/WAR 46/23, took 608 from Silence Gas followed by 480-something Dark Spore. Ouch. Got my mold though, and dinged 47 a few fights later to boot. :)

I would recommend any PLD tanking these things to bring Echo Drops, and instruct every WHM, RDM, and /WHM or /RDM in the party to simultaneously cure you after Silence Gas goes off. Having one mage casting Silena uses valuable time that could save your life if they cast Cure III or IV instead. Just make sure you've got solid hate. :)
Solo what lv. ? 50?! OMG! ^^

I saw a lv. 50 NIN solo these things the other day. It was completely amazing to see how she took these guys. She basically just chain casted Utsusemi Ichi and Ni and she did alot of other strange Ninjitsu on them, don't know what they were though. When I hit lv. 25 with my NIN I am gonna try, I said TRY, to solo these things as RDM50/NIN25. ^^

ever seen a lvl 43/21 war/whm tank one of these when the whm disconnects and there is not even another healer ..not a paladin..even the blm was subbing rdm tho didnt chuck me a heal

and i somehow survived hitting myself cure 3 and regen twice...cos i couldnt get a refresh and no 2 hour

but yeah we got cocky and took on another..using a ninja as a tank and we got wasted b4 we could knock of half his life..with whm this time

Four parties... I have put together four parties and gotten 9 drops all together over the course of this past week... i have lost 9 lots on the molds and I am approaching my limit of Sanity. tell me, I have killed 587 of these damnthings for 9 drops... is this drop that rare for anyone else? because everyone that i hqave talked to claims that it was a relatively quick drop.
RE: mold drop rate = t3h suck
# Feb 25 2005 at 5:51 PM Rating: Decent
its rare compared to the bomb coal drop (about 3 per kill) but it wasnt that rare for me, maybe 50 kills got first one (lost the lot) then another 75 for second one (only two ppl needed it so i got it) . now im lvl 60 and can kill them solo. ive soloed about 10 and have gotten one drop from them. just seems like you have awful luck
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 16 2004 at 11:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) My lvl 42-43 pt cleared this out without any deaths!! Setup was RNG/RNG/BLM/WHM/RDM/PLD. Silence Gas hit for 400+ on me and WHM, and both RNGs 2-houred, but we killed this thing in under 2 mins!! Now i can laugh in the face of 75s struggling with these in the area =]

Erm....as 75BLM/RDM I can melee these to death. Which, considering BLMs general inability to take damage well, is relatively impressive. Until you look at the level range and realize the 75's are something like twenty levels above these. If I were to nuke, the "struggle" would last for about 15 seconds...however long it took to nuke 2-3 times.

On a side, less sarcastic note, these are great for skillups between 100-140ish. I usually go with a full inventory so that if I happen to get a mold I can give it away to some lucky person. It's a rare drop, but it's happened once or twice. ^^

BTW, they can do 684 damage in one hit to a fully decked out 44PLD. we thought we might be able to take them, b/c they're the same level range as stuff we'd been taking all night. but no.

I read though all of these posts, and didn't see much info about solo level. So I thought I'd relate my story.

My the majority of my ls is in a static, so they all achieved 50 at roughly the same time, and they completed the bomb coal, and the exo ray mold, but naturally got stuck on the paper for a while, no higher level help for them at the time. I caught up shortly after this, in time for the paper, but I missed out on the chance to get a mold with them.

So a while later, I ask a much higher level friend of mine, a level 60 some ninja, for help. He didn't have a problem at all, and got 10exp a pop from them. The one special move, did about 300 dammage to him. Sorry, I don't remember the name of the move.

I on the other hand got 2 .5 skillups for my dagger. ^^

Tips for Mold

Remember when fighting Exorays:
1. Keep your tank above 600 hp at all times
2. Have Exoray facing tank and away from everyone else
3. Watch for special effects on tank: Remove paralyze silence etc.

Aside from that, all you have to do is beat the sucker. It will drop Clumps of Exoray Mold needed in Genkai 1 (50 break quest). You get decent xp from these all the way up to 49, at 50, you still get 50-70 xp.

LOL, when i was a 48 PLD, this thing's WS would hit me for about 500-550 at times, even with boiled crab and standard buffs. i think it also silenced me somtimes too with this attack. needless to say i died 6 times in 1 week from these things :P needless to say now that i'm 50 and need the mold, i hope to extract my well-due revenge :D
