This BCNM was a joke for us.

Party setup:
MNK/WAR (me)

Enter the BC, wait for buffs, engage the PLD (Hotblood) from outside the battle area, and wait for BLM to Sleepga the Quads. NIN ran in and pulled the PLD out of the group while all the melee attacked. As we were fighting the PLD, I kept voking the slept DRK. PLD 2houred, we kept fighting it until Invincable wore off and we killed it. Drk (Cruelheart) came next, NIN provoked/used ninja tools until he had its attention, melee engaged, I started provoking the WAR (Hideousmask). Killed the DRK, NIN pulled the WAR, and we engaged. At this point, we were going to take the BLM next, but I started provoking the THF (Jestergrin) since the BLM sleeps well and would cast an -aga on me if it woke.
Killed the WAR and WHM silenced the BLM (Jabbertongue) and melee took it down quick. NIN pulled the THF (Jestergrin) and melee engaged. Jestergrin uses Perfect Dodge, so the NIN would use :Ni spells, DRK used magic, and RNG kept firing away until PD wore off. The THF has very high evasion anyway, so it took a little longer to kill. Finally killed the THF, and all that was left was the WHM. Then it was an all out assault. Legslicer uses Benediction @50% health, but it died quick anyway.

All in all, we did several runs. Had 10 people involved in the group. At one point the WHM sat out, and we went with 2 BLM. DRK sat out one fight and we had 2MNKs going. Really easy once we got strat down. We were finishing every battle in under 11 minutes. Got several Assault Earrings, 1 V. Scythe, 1 Astral Shield, 1 Chicken Knife, and a bunch of smaller stuff.

This sounds like one of those BCNM's that 5 Blms could do with a leach.
Quad BCNM60 Strat

Well, since there isn't anything else up for this BCNM, I figured I'd post my experience last night.

Basically, you fight 6 quadavs, a PLD WHM BLM THF WAR DRK. First time we went in, my orb, our pt was DRK DRG PLD BRD BLM RDM... well, we lasted about 2 minutes before we got stomped. Took the WHM first, pulled it down the ramp, but not far enough cuz it bene'd and woke up half the quads and they all went for the blm who didn't have a chance... brd couldn't sleep them very well, said they woke up very fast. So after that fight, brd leaves, and we get another BLM to come. This was one hell of a fight for us. BLMs were struggling to keep all the quads asleep, and we killed them in the order of WHM BLM PLD THF WAR DRK. We finished the fight in 28 mins. Barely made it. BLM's orb, drop totalled about 20k. Fey wand and a bunch of crap. So DRG uses his orb while the RDM and PLD fought over who used next orb, neither wanted to lol, so we go in, and this time, and used the strat I recommend if you do this.

BLM elemental seals and Sleepga II's all the quads, both blms run in. RDM follows them to help sleep stingy quads. We take the PLD first, which resist sleep a lot. At about half HP he uses invincible, which sucks. I slept him (I was DRK) and waited about 30 seconds and then we started fighting him again. Absorb-VIT, he went down pretty easy. Next we killed the WHM, who uses Bene at 1/2 to 1/3 his HP, which really sucks, but I used Souleater + Last Resort + SATA + Sickle Moon and busted a nice Distortion on his ***. He can Cure V so if possible try to silence him. But other than that he went down pretty easily. One of the BLMs had to run over to where we were to cure Paralyna off the PLD a few times since we were fighting it far away from the other quads. Ok, so next we were gonna do BLM, but the BLM's said no, cuz they were Aspiring it for MP and it was sleeping well. So we took the DRK. DRK mob is a joke... easy, 2hr is horrible, killed it easily. THF came next, which is a lot like PLD in terms of how long it takes to kill. Very high evasion even with Absorb-AGI and uses Perfect Dodge at about half HP. Slept it, waited 30 seconds, and then fought and killed it. No real problems. Then came the WAR. Mighty Strikes can hurt pretty bad, cuz unlike playable characters, I don't think this quad missed once with it on. Make sure you sleep it for 30 seconds or your tank will take a lot of damage, as ours did the fight before. We slept it, killed it, no real problems, and then we took the BLM. This ******* gave us a lot of problems the first time, he uses nasty ga-II and III spells and silence didn't seem to want to stick. One of the BLM's casted a ga-II spell and after sleeping it so many times, of course the PLD couldn't turn hate very well, but luckily everytime the BLM quad would cast, the BLM would run out of range and it really turned out nicely for us beating it down. Finished it in 23 mins. Raise II dropped, rest was ****.

Ok so final verdict, I don't recommend doing this BCNM60 unless you really, really want Vassago's or Astral shield. Vassago's is around 1.5 mil on Fairy, but I'd recommend doing the torque one or something else. However, if you do this one, make sure you have 2 BLM's with Sleepga II. BRD will not work for this BCNM. A healer is good too, in this case it was an RDM, and on our best run she didn't have to do much healing as long as she kept the PLD and BLM's refreshed. Tank, I recommend a PLD just cuz it can heal itself, but I'm sure a NIN could work. As for DD's, well I dun think it really matters, but since the BLM's won't be nuking much, you should get things that can renkei well together. In our case, DRG and DRK, we made Distortion with Skewer > Sickle Moon, and when I hit it really hard and turned hate onto DRG, he could use Super Jump. So that worked out well, but DD's are pretty flexible in this. Always take out the PLD mob first, then the WHM, and you need to fight the WHM very very far from the rest. We pulled it all the way back to the entrance BC. You DO NOT want this thing to Bene and wake up the other quads. It will most likely get everyone killed. I recommend doing the BLM last, so the BLM's have something to Aspir because MP burns up pretty fast in this. BLM occasionally hit the mages with Sleep spells, but luckily someone was always able to cure, like the PLD. Look up the quad names at mysterytour or something so you know which is which. Good luck guys, hope this helps a little.
any strategy?
