Quest Completion
# Jan 15 2010 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
Very Very easy quest, My level 63 dragoon friend came with me with /war, provoked and took it from there. i only had to heal her once, which wasent even needed (just to go from 900 to 1300hp).

I threw a few Dia II spells and poison, Flash etc...just to make it a little easier.

Completed in about 10 minutes total.

(Y) Thanks Angelpunishment (Diablos)

random question, can i set this quest off and then change to another job to do the fight, or do i need to stay as whm during the fight?
# Dec 11 2008 at 9:24 AM Rating: Decent
I did this stupid quest for my AF1 and I attempted to fight him solo 5 times and they all came back with the same outcome: Knocked out!

Ok, first off, don't be stupid like me and teleport out after the battle is over without casting lot for the freaking key item. The two people that helped me beat this guy started laughing when they realized I didn;t cast lot on the item. we had to wait 30 minutes to do it all over again.

Anyway with the right help, this battle can be extremely easy. I didn't use cure at all throughout the battle and was only casting Haste.

Real Easy fight went in w/ some heavy nukes as blm75/rdm and then finished him w/ scythe was no problem w/ sleeps and gravity.

Easy fight.. just make sure you don't teleport before you've freaking obtained the worthless club....
# Jul 19 2007 at 6:01 PM Rating: Decent
Killed him was quite easy, I was 54 BLM and my friend a 41 RDM, just kept sleep II'ing him and RDM kept healing me and putting refresh. I'd stay out of his range and keep nuking him until finally he died ^^b

what lvl should i be to do this ?

OMG, we had too much fun with this guy. You can't even call what we did a fight. I went as a 56BLM/28WHM and my bro comes with me as a 62RDM/31BLM.
We buffed up, though all we needed was Blink and Stoneskin. When the NM popped, my bro immediately used Sleep II. I begin casting Freeze, and my bro would re-sleep him right when I nuke it. We repeated as necessary. It took only 8 Freezes to bring him down, but he never was awake long enough to damage us past our buffs. As I'm writing this, my bro wants us to do that fight again. Anyone on the Titan server need their WHM AF1?

Here's the deal. I had my af hammer, but I coulnd't flag any of the whm af armor quests. So I made a gm call, and they said to send in a bug report, wich I did. So a few weeks go by, and I try to do this again. I talk to the npc in lower jeuno, but all they will erase are my rng af missions. So I drop the hammer to try to start all over. Now Narcheral won't give me the quest again, and the NM on the dunes won't pop! So I made another GM call, and they said that they were unable to help me, and told me to look up fansites on the web to find out how to get the hammer back. PLEASE can anyone help me out? I recently aquired my war af weapon after all this happened to see if it was something with my character, or squenix/pol, and had no problems getting the razor axe. And before anyone asks, yes, I went back and talked to all the npcs involved in my RNG afs to make sure I didn't miss anything. I tried talking to Narcheral in the cathedral, and I did click the ??? multiple times on the beach.

Sounds like you are hitting the wrong ???

The one by the beach is for SAM AF, there is one over by the song runes just south of them that only appears at night, this is the one you need to be clicking on.

Hope that helps.

Funny note

Haha, well I did this a little while ago. And I was lvl 42whm at the time and had my bf help me he was a lvl 50blm...Needless to say he died and I zoned...well when I zoned back into Valkurm Marchelute was still there right in front of me! Killed me in one hit cause my hp was low and I didn't know he'd still be there when I zoned back...So just a little note to those of you who have to zone...he will still be there for a little bit so either rest and get full hp or wait a little while... :)

Thing is you can do this duo how simpel isnt this.

i helped my friend "im 60WAR/30NIN, and my friend 41WHM/20BLM" at Cerberus we went there i buffed up my tp to 300%, he presses the ??? the Marchelute spawns, i use Provoke on him Mighty strikes, berserk, aggressor, warcry and RAMPAGE and BOOM! 1373DMG! loosing some hp but whm takes care of it no problem and next 101%tp then rampage he has 50% hp left...we do the same thing a couple more times and hes K.O

this is way to easy with 2 Impossible to gauge players on cerberus "Blitzon and Phlp"

gl all ^^ "Phlp Obtained: Blessed Hammer"

was me BRD75/WHM36 and WHM44/BLM22 duo this, wasnt too difficult, just took me by surprise. NM dimensional death hit me for 190-230hp, so around 50% i called my Lv54 friece attacker NPC. Only time HP got low when i was casting ballads and WHM was resting. Moral is, BRD can do it, just watch out for that WS, he spams it often when hes less than 50%

just solo'd this for myself as BRD74/NIN37 (yes i deleved v.v.. very sad) hit me 5 times total throughout the fight for 50~60 dmg each hit. Paeon V kept my hp at 100% tho. Evisceration hit for 450~650 and got to use it 3 times. Its Dimensional Death never hit me. Nothing remarkable about the fight, just i noticed it has Counter (which hit for 60).
Too Easy

I just finished this quest as a Lv.65 BST and I got to say...at this level it was too easy. My Junguar Jug Pet was hitting the NM for 200+ damage and did a Dark Spore for 446 damage, the NM was hitting my Jug pet for under 100 but 100+ on critical hits and he spammed Dimensional Death like mad which was hitting for around 200 damage. When was all said and done my Funguar had half life left and I was untouched. My melee hits, with a Fransisca Axe, were doing over 100+ damage.

This fight was easy went with my WHM42 and a PLD61.. The MP levels didnt even get low from curing O.O
Easy as Pie

Easy fight, went in with:

58Rdm/29Blm Dragnon <me>
45Drg/22War Seraphyn
44Whm/22Blm Drya

To begin We started with full Buffs: Blink, Stoneskin, Aquaveil, Prot 3, Shell 3, Phalanx, Ice Spikes, Enfire and Haste.

Opened the fight with a Spirits Within for 500 damage. Over all, he used about 12 Dimensional Deaths, most he hit me for was 230 without Stoneskin or Phalanx. Was able to take two Dimensional Death per Stoneskin with Phalanx up, depending on his hits between. Fight ended just as my Enfire wore-off, so about 3 minutes total. Lots of fun, our whm pulled a snipper and Ghoul with a Banishga by mistake, but no real issues.

Anyone that needs help, send me a /tell on Bahamut. I will be more than happy to help.

just soloed it as 63 rdm / blm
dimensional death eats about 1 stoneskin at the time if stacked with phalanx so just recast after use and u'll be fine, i ate one for about 300 damage, not too bad
# Jan 16 2006 at 1:53 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, this fight was not that hard at all. I had a 67PLD, 45WAR, and a 71RDM with me (53WHM/26BLM). Fight took like a minute total. The weapon is awesome because I can use my Holy Shield again hehe, so this AF quest was'nt too bad at all. The WS he cast wasn't hard at all toward the tank, any of us, I walked away with full HP and like 544/617 MP. Just don't fight it on darksday since it is a dark based mob^^ Good luck to all who goes after this.
