I had to solo my rdm af here as a 64 rdm. its true as long as they are silenced they are pushovers. Hard part was that the coffer was behind the damn door lol. TY RANDOM DNC/NIN!!

since the price for aero IV on the diabolos server rises from 90k to 160k i dont wantet to pay that horrable price. so i decided to get that scroll on my own. i asked a 75 thf from my ls if he want to come with me (72 blm). it was extremly easy to kill prelates and the others we got in 1 hour 2 aero IV scrolls, 1 tornado scroll, 2 aeroga III scrolls, 1 aeroga II scroll and other stuff. just keep the prelate silence or stun when he want to use his AoE attacks.

first post for me :D

Aero IV

Don't expect to get a Aero IV drop. It's very rare. Just as rare as getting a Water IV drop from Sapphire quadavs in Beadeaux. That's why it costs so much.

I have been in 6 skill up/key partys killing these things and I have killed quite alot and so far the only scroll I've seen drop is Aero III and Aeroga II.

Flagellants (sp) are the ones who drop Monk Testimonies, these are blm type monsters, only drop black mage testimonies.

went as 61 thf 54 blm 59 whm 57 rdm 68 blm 70 blm(me)

All of us were sharing the hate. I was mostly the tank but sometimes i wouldn't be able to pull it off the thief. we get 3 out of 2 black mages testimonies that we needed. and also a Scroll of Aero 4 off the first prelate we kill.

Booya these were so easy cause of me being a level 70, nothing resisted and he was always silenced.

Can these be soloed with a 75BLM?

Easily, but you have to be incredibly careful of links. If you're a well-practiced sleep/nuker, these will be a joke to you. However, it's really hard to find a safe place to "work".

If you're after a testimony, I'd recommend Sapphire Quadavs in Beadeaux over these. If you're attempted to farm a key/scroll from these, it might be best to find a duo partner to handle the links. With another 75BLM, I was able to keep the links off of us and we could kill very, VERY quickly.

Got 2 scrolls of Tornado, 1 Aero IV, 1 Aero III, 1 Aeroga II and 3 coffer keys in 5 hours from this guy.

We were the only onece who went after them, took about 1-2 min for each mob, no resting at all. :)

I'm not sure about the Aero IV drop. I fought them for approx. 4 hours last night, and got 3 Aero III drops. So, either they drop both aero III and IV, or Aero III instead of Aero IV.

Yes, Aero IV does drop from this mob. We got it tonight :)

Edit - We did happen to have a THF along with us, but thought nothing of it. We were there about an hour and a half. 1 drop from the prelates and it was Aero IV.

Aero IV does drop. I was helping a friend with their coffer key and first one of these we killed it dropped. Everyone passed cause no one wanted it and i was only lot. Then the damn beastmaster lotted and beat me by like 300 points. I was soo ticked off. grrr. next time im going after him, im bringing all friends.

a lv58 bard with moderate equipment can break his firaga3 and stonega3 with lullaby. hardly resisted.

its ga spells do like 300-400 dmg to pt of lv58s.
and beware of agro. the're normaly bery close together.

other than that, its easier to melee this than yagu~ assasin.

These Yagudo Prelates also drop the following:

Castle Oztroja Coffer Key
Scroll: Aeroga III (Level 67 BLM)

The first Prelate we killed dropped the Aeroga III scroll. Over the next 5 hours not another scroll dropped.

BTW: These things have some nasty Area of Effect spells. Have Stun macroed or face group death. As a level 61 Black Mage, an Elemental Sealed Silence only worked once out of 20 tries. So don't count on silence to save you.

It would have been smarter to elemental seal shock before trying silence.

Shock doesnt make all that much difference. If you used Seal on Shock and then cast Silence you would probably have a worst chance of success then just Sealing silence in the first place.
