I just completed this BCNM tonight. I say that it was not too hard, but it got impossible once the second Beastmaster disconnected -.-;;. The party setup was 2 Beastmasters, and a White Mage(Me). We died second battle, because of the d/c, but first battle we won with ease. (Didn't get the drop though.)
Astral Rings?

With lots of hi-potions, chr, and luck(according to a bst who has actually done it). I don't know the details, but I would think you would do it the same way a BST BST PLD/NIN Party would. Charm left furries, 2hr it, use it to attack colo-colo. Then attack the other furries FROM A DISTANCE while the other 2 bats fight. Of course, you will need plenty of hi-potions for if your charm fails at first, while you solo a furrie, and for finishing off colo-colo. I don't think it is possible without some sort of medicine/drink assistance.

Ok, I'm just browsing the Forum while the server is down. I happened to stumble into here and find so many posts from a lot of different people regarding strategy for this BCNM. Some of these strategies sound good, others not so good. I found my old post in here (on page 7 ><) regarding a duo strategy from before Astral Rings were a possible drop, here it is...ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/quests.html?fquest=381&mid=109863644527409

I have done the BCNM about 8 times since Astral Ring was a possible drop and have gotten it 4 times. That post was last updated in November sometime. The drops aren't up to date, but the strategy still works like a charm^^. One thing I would change is I would now suggest a Steamed Crab for the Bst. Our last run was about a week ago and we finished 6 seconds later than the current record, with only 2 ppl yet again. Don't expect to make 10 mil gil on this BCNM, but it is a good BCNM to do if you only have one other person available and would like a chance at a quick 600k, good luck.^^

how to duo this bcnm
# Apr 21 2005 at 1:45 PM Rating: Excellent
my roommate and i have done this bcnm 4 times over the last few days as a smn/whm and bst/(tried both war and whm subbed)
as a hume bst i've got +1str/-1chr with war subbed and -1str/+1chr with whm subbed. personally i prefer the whm subbed because i means less potions and about 1 more charm out of 10
as soon as we enter we buff up, take a pamama au lait. then i go around the side to get as close to a fury as i can before colo agroes me. i usually get the charm on the first 2 tries, one time i had 2 failed charms in a row though. after i try first charm (whether or not it lands) the smn throws an enfeeble or two or an avatar at the other fury to get his attention. once charm lands i use familiar. i tried it once without using 2 hr, it was the only time we died. after i put the pet on colo, i take one, maybe two more hits before colo turns his attention to the pet. at that point i run over and engage the other fury, allowing the smn to rest. while engaging the uncharmed fury, it's important to keep an eye on your pet and colo. don't actually switch target, but toggle your target view window onto colo to see his health. twice i've ran over and used reward to keep pet's health and colo's health even. if it looks like pet will die first, go ahead and use heal (b'c we've gotten too much agro from uncharmed fury to put pet on him and heal off of that one). when the pet dies, we can either charm the other fury, or the smn can just start throwing avatars at them.
the smn does not need to two hour, but is still important in terms of keeping the bst alive, and more importantly helping control agro at the beginning of the fight when bst is trying to land charm. the smn uses a yad drink and i go thru about 4-5 hi potions each fight, however since i (85 cooking) can make the yag drinks, the pamamas au lait, and the tuna sushi and the smn (60+ alchemy) can make the hi potions, the cost for each one is pretty low.
note: i tried it once without taking a tuna sushi before the fight, i didn't notice a difference in terms of charm success/fail rate, of course it was only one fight and i'd need to do it more to get an idea of how much a difference it would make. however the sushi made a big difference on my accuracy. the fight i didn't use a sushi did require several normal potions in addition to the hi potions i was carrying.
drops: a few colored rocks, a few lvl 20 wpns, scroll of sneak, scroll of deodorize, a mythril beastcoin, scroll of thunderspirit pact.
i hope 2 figure out a good strategy for doing this w/o my 2 hr, however it might require a large investment (in terms of +1 armor, and the garrison chest piece would be nice, forget exactly what it's called)

Prettier Than You

I do it with myself and my friend, who's a Hume BST. We don't usually fail charms, but when we do even WE have trouble taking the hits. When only one of us misses, it's hard to keep Colo-Colo busy long enough to cure him once he finally does get his charm off. Every time I try and Cure him, I steal pet aggro, and everything goes horribly wrong.

My suggestion is if you do this in a BST duo, try not to cure your partner until one of your pets is almost dead. That way, they have substantial hate, and you won't steal any.

Good Luck!
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.

This bcnm is a good way to waste your seals if you hate them. We're 5/7. 3 thunder pacts. The rest are junk. Thunder pacts are only 100k on Fairy and sell once every 2, 3 days. You might have heard stories of lucky people getting astrals all the time but i bet there are a lot more people that got junk only you haven't heard of. Overall, this bcnm isn't worth it.
4 times today
# Apr 16 2005 at 6:09 PM Rating: Decent
I did this BCNM 4 times today, setup BST,BST,SMN.

Got in arena and ate VIT food, drinks for mp.
Charmed the furries and 1 BST cast farmiliar, Make sure the one that has been familiared attacks Colo Colo first, or you could end up losing the battle becuase this is a 15mins only and Familiar last for 30Mins!

Recharm the other bat and allow Colo colo to take damage. once Colo colo is dead let the other furrie kill your familiared bat.

Now the SMN/WHM job is to make sure BST are ok, and deal damage to Colo colo using avatars. make sure the Avatar doesn't take to much hate, becuase you want your familiared bat to be beaten to daeth.

Tip: Taru BST are not the best because they cannot withstand the ammount of damage because of their low HP, although i did mine with one and we did fine, ocasionly the odd scare.

Well i hope this helps and good luck, btw out of the 4 battles we didn't get an astral ring.
Dissapointing eh?

Congratulations! I just wanted to point out that you don't have to worry about killing your pet first because if your pet is still alive after the other 2 mobs die, you can just log out (then log back in of course). Your pet should become uncharmed for your teammates to kill. Another option is you can just heel + stay your pet when/if he's about to kill the last of the other 2 mobs.

I (BST) did this today with my 2 ls mates, a MNK and a WHM. If the BST agrees to use 2hr, a win is guaranteed.

Ok... me and a few of my friends where wondering if it would be possible to have a setup of 3 smns... all 2 houring BEFORE the fight, using yag drinks, and all using their smns 2 hour at the SAME time. Anyone think this strat would work?
RE: Smn's
# Apr 18 2005 at 4:47 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah just make sure that you get your avatar on colo colo.

Had a slip up once when one smn got too close while trying to sick garuda on him, colo went right past garuda and tore my friend a new one before we knew what happend.

But if you are fast enough, you can get two wins on one astral flow. Just have some one with a second orb, after you leave the battle field re-enter and use your ethers to get mp back up and aerial blast again.

Someone told me that a SMN can solo this BCNM. I have yet to attempt this BCNM, but i am wondering if there is any validity to what the person told me. He told me that Ramuh was needed, and u do the same technique as you would for Shooting Fish. Anyhow, hopefully someone can tell me the truth of what this person told me.

No, a SMN CANNOT solo this BCNM. They can solo Shooting Fish because the Pugils' ranged attacks do about 4-6 DMG each on Ramuh, and they attack once every 5 seconds or so.

However, with these bats, they'll be hitting your avatar WAY too hard for it to stay alive long enough to 2 HR again, and if pet dies, all three bats will come after you.

1 bst/war can solo this with good food, pet food, and 4 or 5 hi potions...... 2 bst/war and a healer can do it dead easy, can even do without using a 2hour, although a bit risky.

Did this twice with my ls mate Venlo, me as a bst/war, him as a smn/whm.

1st time it went horribly wrong as i hit charm on colo instead of the furies ^^. Then after i charmed a fury, i 'Forgot' to 2 hour, and by the time i realised, my fury lost charm and had gathered enough TP to kill both of us......

2nd time, I went in, charmed and 2 houred. Me and garuda destroyed the other fury, then me and venlo chilled a bit while my fury and colo fought eachother. As my fury nearly died, i got my axe out, venio summoned garuda again and we approached colo. Garuda 2hrs, and we're left with my charmed fury.... So I have to log out, and let my summoner friend take on the fury with 10% hp and like 200tp left on it ^^

Quickest log out and back in i ever made, i went in, venlo invited me, i voked the bat, the bat gets intimidated by my presence twice and we ended up owning it.

Result? we're one Astral Ring and one Thunder Pact richer than we were 5 minutes before!!Still cant believe how good it feels.

I do this every Sunday a few times and our party pwns it. We got with the following setup:
WHM/BLM (me)
The DRK solos Colo-Colo and I constantly cast cure (I always have 2 yag drinks for the battle)
The BST charms the Furies and has them fight each other. He also melees sometimes. Colo and the Furies usually die about the same time. Then we just rest until the Furies become uncharmed. Both the BST and the DRK bring a hi-potion or 2. The BST brings yag drinks and the last furies goes down easy.

So two of my memebrs, Pavko and anothr LS friend zoned so i would auutomatically get the items. Of course as they r about to zone, i get booted, and very unfortunately they had zoned at same time, so no1 got nething.

I understand GMs cant do anything about it but i was still extremely pissed.

a good way to beat this...and maybe get a new record, is to get 3 summoners and all use astral flow, then run in with the avatar you want and use the astral flow ability...all 3 bats should die, unless your summon skill sucks or maybe your using 2 or 3 carbuncles.... anyway thats how i win, yeah maybe this sucks, whatever

I would argue that the best part of doing BCNMs is finding the trick that works... In the case of this one, you CAN charm the mobs allowing BST to work for this one... Just as Sleep works on the lvl 30 crawler... or Smn 2 hour works on... Ok, Most of the lvl 20s...:).

According to your arguement, it sounds like you would like to see someone beat the Worm's Turn w/o ranged attack... That would be funny to see...

Nah, to each their own. Personally I have not done this specific one, but I plan on trying it tonight... solo... as a bst... lol:)

this game is ****** ******** and deserves to die

2 of us zoned so it would distribute and go faster and b4 our third guy could lot on the stuff he got DC... so basically we lost an astral ring and a thundersprit pact which is a combined total of 1 mil on ***************** GMs "im sorry but i cannot replace any tiems lost at any time, as with all BCNM fights if you zone you lose" "anything else i can help you with this evening?"

i swear i would probably kill someone right now im so mad this game is ****** up with that **** thats the most retarded thing ever you zone you lose....

Well, if i believed what you were saying i would feel very sorry for you. However, if 2 people in a party zone and only one is left, they recieve the items automatically without needing to lot. So, either your making up a story for sympathy on a video game bulletin board, which would be quite pathetic, or your friend ripped you off. I suggest you try getting an item in pool in a party and having everyone else zone if its not the first thing, so you can see for yourself that you dont have to lot if you are only person left in zone. And once you see that, once again assuming you arent trying to make us feel bad for you, you should reevaluate your friendship with the third guy. I hope this has been some help to you, not trying to make fun of you or anything with the comments about not believing you but it seems unlikely that you wouldnt know it gives items if your last one in zone.

well i know u get the tiems if ur the last one in the zone yes ur right it does seem unbelievable but our third guy got DC as me and my 2nd friend zoned so reall the whole party was in west ron (only 2 ppl in pt, in west ron now) and so we lost a good 250k but yea im not tryin to get sympathy im just sayin they should change the thing where u zone u lose the items seems stupid to me and pointelss who agrees?
RE: fuck this
# Apr 15 2005 at 3:15 PM Rating: Decent
a really simple solution to that would have been to just change the treasure distribution in party options. you can set it so that one person gets all the treasure automatically. that's what i've seen other party leaders do when they are giving all the treasure to the person that used his beastmen seals.

timing would have to be down to the millisecond....if you both zoned after he DCed whoever zoned 2nd wouldve got the items, if he DCed after you zoned he wouldve already got the items, there is no way he DCed the EXACT same instant you zoned, not to mention with the system the game runs on a DC takes a good 30 seconds to a minute to process anyway because the game assumes character just isnt sending any commands for a certain amount of time before disconnecting them and he woulda got the items during that time.

don't you just hate know it alls?

actually this has happened to me before.. you see even after you DC the game still thinks your still logged in EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT. I have had to wait 10 minutes after getting DCed because the game said"Character is already logged in" after I got disconected. SO YEA this is believable, hell like I said IT HAPPENED TO ME!

as i said, DC can take 30 seconds to a minute to process, and maybe im wrong about time(your 10 minute example), but since game thinks your logged in still, it still gives you the item anyway during those 10 minutes. Yes, it would have to be down to the millisecond, game would have to realize u DCed the same instant 2nd person zoned, otherwise u would log back in with the item in your inventory.
RE: fuck this

Even if he drops, he would have to be dropping the whole time you ran out and zoned to West Ron. Even when you drop it takes awhile before he's d/c'd so if he was talking to you at all while you guys were zoning then odds are he didn't drop and instead ripped you off. Personally I believe he waited for you to zone then windowed out of the game so he was dropped, now he's 1 million richer and your still his friend.

easy win
# Apr 04 2005 at 5:09 AM Rating: Decent
Me and a couple members of my LS have done this quite a few times, 8 wins in a row now(NO ASTRALS ; ;)...We been using the same strategy for all 8 and its easy. First 3 tries we only won one, but we didnt have our strategy down yet.

The setup is BST/WHM BST/WAR SMN/WHM. We go in with at least one BST 2 hour ready, SMN 2 hour doesnt matter. As soon as we get in BSTs eat tuna sushi, SMN eats a rolanberry pie. SMN casts protectra and rests up the 7 mp(every bit counts just in case but hasnt mattered to us yet ^^).
Then SMN summons carbuncle and drinks a yag drink. BST/WAR runs up and tries to charm a furies, if charm succeeds he familiars and sics it on colo, that parts done with. Other BST just keeps theirs charmed as much as possible to minimize damage(DONT ATTACK COLO WITH THEM), use stay and go to other end of arena so u got time to recharm if they uncharm. If the first charm fails, SMN puts carbuncle on colo to keep him off the BSTs until one of them gets their charmed bat familiared and on colo, in which case carbuncle is let leave, its key the familiared bat loses to colo-colo or charm WILL last longer then your time limit. In one-on-one the fury will do about 60-70% of colos health in general, although day can change this, thats why its best to use carb to minimize damage dealt to colo before bat is on it. If its the scenario where first charm fails(which is frequent, moreso on windsday), then the 2nd BST to land charm still does the same thing, charm bats and keep em away from him. The BST/WHM is in charge of poisona, although we often carry antidotes anyway, and while the fight between colo and furies goes on and other furies is docile we all rest up. When that ends and familiared furies dies the other furies is immediately put on colo, and its a even fight from there. If the furies uncharms both BSTs try to charm it, usually is recharmed in first set of 2 tries, and put back on colo. Finally, either your charmed bat or colo-colo will die, in which case SMN summons shiva and BSTs melee. Don't worry if you get a lot of failed charms at beginning, summoner is for healing as well. And the last bat has a habit of using jetstream for around 100 damage, so if your low at the end you might lose one person(unfortunately its always me and i have to go relevel ; ;), in which case it doesnt hurt to have SMN 2 hour but the last bat is always weak to start with anyway and you shouldn't need to. I hope this helps you guys out some, by the way we are 0/9 on astral, 4/9 on lance, 1/9 on pact -.- 9/11 wins but 8 in a row now. Not a record breaking strategy, but the surest win we've seen.

Edit:giving credit to LS members, Kosugi(BST/WAR) Darksakura(SMN/WHM), me(BST/WHM), and Artek soon(alt SMN/WHM) all on Remora. If you need another BST for the fight I can't speak for the others but i will help for free if you want the drops to use, 20% of total value if you are just selling it.

I was beginning to doubt the astral ring, then we finnaly got lucky with it...


Was at 2% New Moon winds day. The second BST (Gothic) and I both using Tea. didn't have a signa, just 2 rings, a ribbon, and a whistle.

It has been a lot of fun, and we'll probably do more. ^^

BTW: Best strategy I can give. bring two Beast Masters, have one of them two-hour upon charming and you pretty much win instantly.

-No one vokes Colo-Colo, that would build too much hate.
-BST's keep distance if they can while running charm.
-Windsday is a BAD DAY for this... believe me, it hurts.
-San d'Oria Tea, Chamomile, or Flint Cavier seem to be the best foods for +CHR for this (I heard there's a sushi... but come on, we're cheap :))
-bring at least 2x juices per member
-Signa is not a must, but you should do your best to have your other slots with the gear.
- Don't let the lowest-HP member (Taru) get the hate first. let a higher-HP member (Elvaan BST in our case) get the hate first. That way colo-colo sticks to them.
Our little trip

I went for this BCNM today, looking for a decent challenge, way to make gil, aswell as for the hell of it.

Our PT setup, BST,BST,PLD.

Well, we didn't live through the battle. At the start, we were doing pretty well, first charms landed, started fighting Colo with our furies.

The major problem was when they uncharmed. Me and the other beast never stood a chance at charming them again. BST/WHM with a total of 48 Chr each and took 9 tries for me, by that time, the pld had died, and the other bst was nearly dead still trying to charm the other bat.

The biggest problem encountered was probably the drains. All the bats know drain, so it can pose a problem. We're going to get raised shortly and trying it again to see how it goes, I'll post back
