Soloable if prepped
# Dec 25 2011 at 1:15 AM Rating: Decent
I soloed this guy as a MNK30/WAR15. Equips were: Cougar Baghnakhs, Attar of Roses, Compound Eye Circlet, Reraise Earring, Mercenary's Gi, Battle Gloves, Windurstian Ring, Emperor Band, Purple Belt, Mercenary's Sitabaki, Mercenary's Kyahan. I had a Hi-Potion +1 that I didn't end up using. I prepared ahead of time by fighting a bunch of monsters to build up 300% TP. Boosted 3 times, used Dodge and Focus before spawning. Spawned Forger, hit Combo, then used Hundred Fists until it died. Might have used a second Combo in there. Can't remember for sure. Over all, pretty easy fight, though I probably wouldn't have won or at least would have needed my Potion without Hundred Fists.
Not hard at lvl 49

Just soloed as a 49thf/24nin, not hard at all. He only hit me 3 times...but each hit was for around 80 hp. Fight took a couple mins but pretty easy overall. Much easier than the guardian treant.
soloed as 36mnk/dnc

i just soloed this as a 36 galka mnk/dnc decently equipped. it was hitting me for 90-100 but would miss from time to time and the healing waltz was only healing 69 so i was falling behind in the healing slowly. i started with 300 tp. at first i was worried about losing my pop item but then it berserked so i thought i'd be dead fast so i hit hundred fists and it was over in about 15 seconds. got my bomb steel, gonna try the tree one next once i get my 2hr back. got 50 exp for it.

I just did this for two people as SMN49/WHM24.
Ifrit: Crimson Howl, then Double Punch (did around 578).

After Double Punch, he just smacked the mob around a few more times and it was over.

I buffed the party of 3 with Stoneskin, Hastega, Aerial Armor, Protect 1, Shell 1, and Barfira. All of it was up at the end of the fight, nothing had dropped or been used up. Nobody got hit. No cures were needed. Was at half mp at the end of the fight due to using the two Bloodpacts and about 15 seconds of keeping Ifrit out. Cake. I think the damage done by the two level 30 friends in the party was negligable compared to Ifrit, so i count this as being solo.

It's fun to go back and look at these old quests that hardly anyone does anymore.

I didn't know how hard this guy would be, but I've had Samarai flagged for quite awhile. So I decided to go and get this guy tonight as a 46 war/23 whm.

This guy was easy, though he was hitting me for 10-75 Hp everytime. He would've been easier but I was worried about an Earth Elemental kickin it behind me when I was fighting him. Needless to say that 2 Raging Axes and 1 Divine Seal/Cure 2(just in case the Earth Elemental decided to join in) he was dust. And out came my Bomb Steel, and actually got 20 exp for this!

I gave myself a Cure 3, with Regen waited til I had 60 mp and 600 Hp(only 2/3rds of full on both) and got up, smoked the Earth Elemental in about 30 secs and got 2 Earth Clusters. The Earth Elemental did only 20 points of damage to me, no biggie Regen made it appear as if he didn't even touch me. Took my happy butt outta there passed by a 30 war/Nin got her back up to full health, and went back to Basty happy.

I'd say that at least a 44 war/22 whm should be able to solo this. I soloed this and the only trouble I had was wondering weither or not if I cast anything if the Elemental was going to aggro. So indeed at least a 44 should be able to solo this. Maybe a 41-42 if you have Mighty Strikes ready to go and a few of cure 2's or hi potions, but you still might need a pl in case things go wrong.

I had 820 Hp to start off and even with shield he did 700 hp of damage to me. Also I didn't have anything up on me except Regen to start off the match, just Protect and Shell 1. And I didn't cast anything on him. Just straight melee on him.

Just don't underestimate how hard he hits, cuz though he's a wuss in taking damage he can dish it out.

killed this guy taking no damage as a 50 rdm/blu... sorry just had to brag :p
solo'ed 41drg
# Sep 25 2006 at 11:22 AM Rating: Decent
solo'ed him as a 41drg/20whm. Used a boiled crayfish for added def. Buffed before fight protect, shell, aquaveil, blink, then rested to get my mp back. while i was resting the earth elemental spawned so i stood up and killed it which didnt even hit me once so all it did was boost my tp. Then fully healed and with about 60%tp from the earth elemental traded the steel thing to the ??? forger spawned pretty easy fight. Got scary for a second cuz he was hitting pretty hard and i wasnt spamming dia fast enough. He got me down to 90hp once but after that i started spamming dia a lil better worked mp hp to about 230ish had 100tp used double thrust which landed for 300dmg forger dies. I had 91mp left so i could have kept fighting for a while. i used double thrust twice. never even used jump or highjump actually i save them to interupt casting but all he cast was berserk so between that and my spamming dia never used my jumps. Easy fight for a drg this level just dont get scarred when ur hp gets low and id recomend dia for healing breath as cure takes to long to cast. And i didnt use my 2hr btw.
Fire WEAK!
# Sep 07 2006 at 3:38 AM Rating: Decent
I just solo'd this guy as 58BLM and I can asure you he is fire weak, not fire strong. I took him easy Fireaga II did 513 dmg while Blizzaga II did 285! I had to use my 2hr only because I wasted MP on Ice magic (thanx Ala). Otherwise it was a very easy fight. Even with BLM's low def. he was only hitting for 30-40 dmg a hit, kept stoneskin up as much as possible but not needed 100% of the time so I let him get a couple in. Hopw this helps, 100% Fire WEAK!
Shaky >< but killed him^^

I have had the 2 items for SAM quest in my inv for months now ( i flagged it while in Norg for Ninja Scrolls) well last night i was bored and about to logg and decided to cruise by and take Stray Mary if I could, then go see what kinda trouble Forger would be to a RNG43/NIN21. Well, i get to the ??? and Utsusemi'd up and ate a Rice Dumplin. Spawned him and after my shadows dropped, he starts hittin me for 100~130. Since RNG HP is gimp in the first place, i started to freak out so I Barraged for about 400ish and his HP bar moved slightly... had a few hits on him and all he had lost was maybe 10%, by this time, i was down to about 266/686 so was like all right, imma die. So i EES'd him and he dropped. O.o I look at my log and it shows my shot hit him for 1360 ... O.O

I'm all freakin out and like /l OMG!!! 1360 EES
XD well anyway.. he is easy if you can take a beating. Good Luck

This thing was pretty simple. Fought him as a RDM43/NIN21 and beat him pretty easy, I did have my lvl 30 NPC with me too. This thing hits kinda hard but nothing too major, just keep Stoneskin and Utsusemi up. Took me down to 1/2 hp because I got tired of casting spells. I finshed it off and got 13 exp from it. :)
A weakling, if you are a level 40+ BST.

For quite some time I had my Samurai Quest active, and was waiting till I was high enough to solo Forger, and the Guardian Treant. \

Last night I had hit level 44 in Western Altepa, and was doing some random questing today, so I grabbed my SAM quest items just in case I found someone willing to help me with these NMs.

Since I had to go through Konschtat Highlands to get to Selbina from Jeuno, I thought to myself: "heck, I'll attempt Forger, and warp out if my pet starts getting beat down". Well, I called out a Funguar Familiar and started killing things, to accumulate TP, till my pet and me were sitting at 300%TP. I was pondering on wether or not to call my NPC helper, but, I didn't, so I could save her as a last resort, in case 2 of my Jugs died to Forger.

Well, I headed to Forger's spawn point (D-8), traded the Oriental Steel to the ??? marking, and immediately set my 300%TP Funguar Familiar on Forger. I did the same, so I could empty my 300%TP, too. Well, my Funguar used a Frog Kick for massive damage, and I used my WS for some extra damage, taking the Forger down to like 20% health, lol! A few seconds later, Forger lay wasted and I had acquired my Bomb Steel for SAM Quest!

Definitely a joke for any BST 40+.

Heading my way to Zi'tah to solo the other NM, cya!

This NM is strong!!!! It was hitting my team hard, taking chunks off our HP, maybe be because we were war31/monk15 rdm30/blm14/ thf30 and mnk30 i dont know but it was taking big chunks off us do not solo because i saw a 31paladin get stompt badly by this thing
weak against fire
# Apr 06 2006 at 3:19 PM Rating: Decent

Every thing is easy at lvl 75
Solo 45 Thief/Warrior
# Nov 20 2005 at 4:27 AM Rating: Decent
This fight is fairly easy if you are a thief and you use your 2-hr. I traded the oriental steel to the "???" and used Hide right after that. Snuck behind Forger and used Sneak Attack, did about 275, and just used 2-hr right away; used Berserk as soon as I 2-houred, soloed it fairly easily, from 732 HP to 323. Now on to the Guardian Trent....
got owned

Tryed taking this on with my rdm lvl 41 with help from my npc friend.
I realy got owned by this and the bomb was left with only a scratch.

I have a felling this bomb lvl can be highter than lvl 33.

Many NMs have power comparable to monsters 5-10 levels higher than the NM's actual level. In reality, this monster is probably more comparable to a lv. 43 bomb.

just soloed him
# Nov 15 2005 at 1:08 PM Rating: Decent
I just soloed him as 54RDM/26BLM, and i must say thiswas super easy. I dont have phalanx and i forgot to cast blink so i had protect 3 and stoneskin up. he only got me down to half like i cure 4d and he barelytouched me afterwards. ihad ice spikes and enlbizz on but i didnt need them. was hitting for over 50 dambage normally. only got to use 1 wep skill b4 he went down, usedshing blade it hit fora decent amount. like 150ish. If ur a rdm and ur 50 or higher this fight is a piece of cake
# Oct 27 2005 at 8:35 PM Rating: Decent
as i went 2 the highlands to help a friend wit sam i saw 2 59 whms get owned by this thing and they even used their 2hrs but when i fought it as a 50 rdm it didnt even get past my stoneskin......something must be wrong here
kinda easy

Just soloed him

52 Paladin/26 Warrior

My food was Roast Mutton for STR 'cos I didn't feel like spending a lot.

VERY easy. Used one Cure III and I Flashed him when he did Berserk. Had a Yagudo Drink just in case but I definitely didn't need it.

If you need help on Bahamut send a /tell.

this guy is a breeze for lvl50 rdm, just buff up, have haste. stoneskin+phalanx and refresh up all the time and u will be fine, its good to use ice spikes and enblizzard for extra damage^^
Pretty Tough
# Sep 11 2005 at 7:11 AM Rating: Excellent
I just solo'ed this as my WHM54.

I expected it to be a breeze with me being 21 levels higher, but this proved quite the challenge. It ripped through my MP at the speed of Knots, and it hit me for around 70 or so a time.

Keeping Enfeebs up and using the light staff proved a good investment. Now to do the sodding tree >.>;
# Sep 02 2005 at 4:23 AM Rating: Good
I went solo and fought this sucker.

How I did it:
2-hour beginning of fight which made our hp equal for the 1st half of our life than 2 hour went off and he started to kick butt for a bit but than I used a X-Potion which recovered 150HP. After that both of us were near death when Forger got me to 79hp than I used Sturmwind for 525 damage! I defeated him.

Went in as a WAR43/MNK without food(It would of probably been better if I used food...)
