Owned this laste night 4 times. went as BST/NIN, PLD/WAR, WHM/BLM. what we did was bst hugs the wall and charms a furie(i had +23 char) Colo-Colo and the other furie will aggro the bst, the pld runs up and provokes Colo and the bst "sics" the charmed furie onto the other furie. the bst then joins in on beating on Colo with the pld, (bst NEEDS to watch the uncharmed furies life cause u want ur pet to die(if it looks like ur pet is going to win then "heel" it and let the uncharmed furie kill it) by the time ur pet is dead, Colo should be dead and that gives about 30 seconds for the whm and the pld to rest.(the bst doesnt rest cause he is watchin the 2 furies fight) once ur pet is dead (the furie should only have like 5% health left) u and the pld run up and hit it a couple of times. only downfall of this plan is that everything rides on the bst charming the furie (if it isnt charmed by the 3rd try then u are dead cause u got 3 bats on u) *hint* eat flint caviar and dont go for dmg armor(wear anything that gives char *monster signa would pretty much seal the charm in 1 try*) got astral rings 3 times out of the 4 ^.^

Did this last night, BST/WHM, BST/WHM, SMN/WHM

Piece of cake, and while other setups might do this faster, I have trouble imagining how to make it easier than this (without any 2hr)

Go in with noble ribbon and 2 hopes ring, and tuna sushi on the BSTs for the +chr (gave a total of +12. Anything over that, like a monster sigma, would be serious overkill, as even the second BST, a mithra, had no trouble charming the bats...only slightly harder than average mobs, and MUCH easier than mobs like Blobs and other jelly types)

Smn summons Ramuh, Thunderspark (I think thats how its called?) Colo-Colo and tank the 3 bats for a sec, one BST charm left, one BST charm right, if a BST fails, merely kite the bat around the arena while either the other BST (if success) fight Colo-Colo with his/her bats, if both failed, have Ramuh continue tanking.

Once Colo-Colo is dead, merely pit the bats against each other.

Trick: if both bats are charmed and you're only waiting for one to uncharm, make it "Stay" across the arena and go at the opposite side...gives you more time to react when one uncharm ^^

Won all 3 times, and got a Thunder Spirit Pact (240k on Hades) for our trouble. Good nuff, going at it a few more times tomorrow to see if we can shoot for an astral ^^

Food used: MP food/juice for the SMN, Pamama Au Lait and Tuna Sushi for the BSTs. Thats really all we needed.

Actually, I'd advise some DEF food for the SMN (that was what I used with you last night :P) in case you get a tiny bit of aggro from Thundersparking- I at once got knocked down to half HP from a stray jet-stream in one of the fights, would have been worse w/o steamed crab ^^

Au-laits for the fight are good so you don't have to waste MP healing yourself, and my advise to other SMN's who try this setup, summon Ramuh, Thunderspark Colo-colo, wait for the BST's to charm the furies, then dismiss after the bats are fighting each other and rest for MP. Then resummon after a minute or so, thunderspark, dismiss, rest. Yagudo drinks are also good for that ^^

This was our first bcnm ever.

Just did this with party of bst/war, blm/whm (me) and whm/blm. We each used food, whm gave us Protectra, Shellra and Baraera, and we rest to full mp and hp. I elemental seal sleeped one of the Furies, Bst charmed the other. Charm didn't stick the first time, so whm and I kept bst healed while she tried charm again. Charm stuck on the third try. We let ColoColo and the charmed Fury go at it and we all concentrated on the Fury that was asleep. It woke up, by the way, right around the time when the third Charm stuck. We killed the Fury fairly easily, then watched the other bats fight, and rested mp a bit. ColoColo won with very little mp left, then we smacked him around and won!

Drops weren't anything great, Platoon Sword, Invis scroll, Green rock, and a Bat Wing :(

We went in a second time just to try it without Bst 2 hour. ....You need Bst 2 hour. Charm stuck pretty quick this time, but the other Fury wasn't even half dead by the time Charm wore off. Everything was downhill from there :)

A good time was had by all though, these are a lotta fun!
nearly did it

tried it last night, with 2 monks, an a red mage (me) i used 2hr straight away, an blitzed the main bat with enfeeb magic, then the monks kicked its ***. i however kept healibng the wron monk, an wasted all my magic, an we died, but i feel we wud have done it if i had of cured the right monk.
Failed Miserably
# Feb 21 2005 at 12:46 AM Rating: Decent
We tried doing this twice as two ELV BST/WHM
CHR was 26 going in and we got it up to +12 so final CHR was 38

Needless to say we died both times.
First time I mischarmed 5 times in a row and Other bst got charm but i died

Second time was quick death, both of us mischarmed

So i would say this is pure luck with 2bsts unless you have monster signa and flint caviar

BTW didn't realize it but if you lose, you keep the orb

You keep the orb, but it cannot be reused. If you try to use it is says it is "cracked" and useless.

To the person that asked if this one could be done solo like Shooting Fish by SMN, nope.

Typing this as I lie dead waiting for a raise beside the hut. lol

I did it on Iceday with Shiva. Shiva did plenty of damage with Diamond Dust. That wasn't the issue. The problem is that the arena for this one is much smaller than the other ones. You don't have the room you need to Ether/Recast.

Soon as the Avatar is dead, they are back on you too quick.

One meat shield with plenty of potions might make this a duo possibility though.

ok this is sooo easy i did it with rng,whm,drg and it was so easy just brought a few hi pots each and i ened up tanking it most the time (rng) and they barly hit me for anything whm didnt realy have to heal us he just ran around kiting other bats that were flying around will me and the drg riped up the other ones...

Extremely Easy
# Feb 11 2005 at 10:21 AM Rating: Decent
I just recently did this BCNM with my brother and a LS friend. We had the following set up:


After we zoned in, we buffed up and rested to full. Both Smns had yag drinks which are really cheap in Sandy. Once we were ready I ran in and got all 3 on me. One Smn healed me a bit while the other used astral flow and garuda. Once the bats left me and went to his avatar, the other Smn summoned Garuda and used astral flow. I 2hr'd just for the fun of it, but after the 2nd Smn used his astral flow the bats were toast. We completed it in I believe 2:01. I know 2 Bsts and a whm can do it no problem, but we watched a group of that setup before we did ours and they seemed to have some problems. If your wanting to do it fast and simple I would suggest 2 Smns. Anyways the drops were extremely lame, but enough to cover the yag drinks. Look forward to doing this lots more.

Two Bst/Whms can do this without needing a third. They just need one item of the following for each battle. Don't worry about multiple food items since it will last for both battles.
Pamama Au-Lait
Melon Juice (Yagudo Drink works if things go wrong, but it is generally overkill)

My duo and I have beat this BCNM 9 out of 11 times in a duo. One death was due to my massive charm failure (non darksday + max Chr), and the other was due to ill-timed uncharms + failed charms on both Bsts pets.

I would not suggest doing it in a duo, but any two Bsts who know how to work together can do so with a little bit of luck.

If you aren't gutsy enough to try it in a duo you can pull just about any job in as the third to help out. Obviously 3 Bst/Whm is safest for the group. Without a 3rd Bst though, you can pull in pretty much any xxx/war to tank for a bit in case charms fail, or you can pull in a healer.

After the couple deaths we decided we'd much rather have a 3rd to help out (and more chances to get gil). My friend whose only has one job above level 20 (lvl 31 War) so we brought him in as a 20War/Mnk to voke. After finding out just what he would do in battles the setup worked great.

Also if you're up for a real challenge, and have the ability to two-box then you can have even more fun. If my friend can't log one when we do BCNM then I'll log in as his character, and suit up for two boxing it. It's kinda hectic, but very thrilling to complete.

I think we're at 2 rings with 6 Spirits so far (couple lances too).

I wish I could try the BCNM as a 3 party Smn, but I'd hate to have to wait 2 hours before I could try again.

Edit: Clean up

I have done this bcnm 9 times now... the first 6 tims I had a pt that was BST BST BLM we won the first two easily and lost the third one cause for some reason I couldn't get the charm off and the other bst forgot to 2h. The next 3 times were easy though but all we got from the 6 attempts was a thunder spirit pact and 2 platoon lances. The next day I was asked to do it again by the same BST I did it with before (we are in the same ls ^^) and the BLM was AFK so we invited a friend of mine who also had a level 20+ BST. This time it was so incredibly easy we won all 3 times it took maybe 20 minutes for all 3 tries. We ended up coming out of that try wieh an Astral Ring and a platoon lance (all the other drops were 10k or less). 3 BSTs is a great setup for this one because two of the BST's are the main charmer and one of them is the backup charmer incase one person mischarms.
3 Smn's = Win

SMN question
# Feb 08 2005 at 11:19 AM Rating: Good
This is a question for other SMNs- Let's say you have a 3 SMN pt and only one (me) of the SMNs have any of the avatars other than Carbuncle. Is this doable? (on lightningsday of course)

Summon 2 Carbys and Ramuh, assault Colo-colo, AF+yag drink then Searing Light x2, and Thunderspark, not Judgment Bolt, on the first shot- deals alot of DMG and then paralyzes the 3 bats at the same time, right? then wait for the timer to count down, and hit Searing Light x2 and Judgment Bolt for the kill-

This way should allow the Avatars to be spared some pain thanks to the paralyzes, and minimal recasting would be needed this way, right?

Feedback and/or suggestions please, though I'm going to do this tonight regardless and tell you how it went. Thanks!

Hello! I have done this BCNM 13 times with the same setup. BST BST WHM. It works great, we are 12/13. Only reason we lost is because we decided to use Familiar and didnt know that it lasts for 30 min. Our winnings: 2 Astral Rings, 2 Platoon Lances. I have not seen a Thunder Spirit Pact drop yet.

If anyone one on Alexander wants to do this, and has whm at lvl 20+, let me know. Tavian is the name. My friend and I are the BST's and have the strategy down pretty well. I'm always looking for a battle.

ok so i want to do this BCNM... i have my pal/war buddy a blm/whm and my self a DRG...so can it be done? heres what i figure the blm sleeps one of the furries, i sub whm and take the other one, and the pld tanks colo and the blm nukes him. I figure i bring a few hi potions and mithkabobs and if we do it right i think we might be able to do it. I'm not worried about time i just wonder if anyone thinks we can win. The bats would be weak against my polearm, since they're flying creatures,but still...i wonder........
RE: word...
# Feb 11 2005 at 10:27 AM Rating: Decent
We tried a similar setup and unfortunately we got smoked really fast. It sounds good and seems like it should work, but it's mostly a game of luck with that setup. We had a pld/war, war/whm, and blm/whm. The 2 Furries are pretty easy, I 2hr'd on one and had it almost dead pretty fast. Colo-Colo isn't as easy though. I believe you can do and I'm sure if its played out right you could do it no problem. It just depends on how well the group knows their part and how much damage you can do. I know that if 3 bats get on one person its death really fast. If whm goes all out trying to heal they will get the agro since there's 3 bats. My advice would be to try it, but don't be disappointed if you fail.

Planing On doing this for the Ring. Me and this friend of mine and grab another from outside. I need advice on Set up.

I Asked around some BST around lv 19-21 and record there CHR was 26 With out Item and a WHM @ 20 have 23 CHR. So I thinking - BST/??? (OutSider) (WHM/BST)(ME) (RNG/WAR) (Friend) or Something Good .

Do you guys think its possible to pull it off.
Please port ur Tips

    after doing steamed sprouts several times and not getting drops worth the effort my brother and I did this one again things went much better only took three diamond dust attacks total to win platoon dagger and staff bat fang and sneak scroll were the drops this time we used a different set up this time instead of the bst we found a pld who just finshed garrison in ronafaure and he said he would do this my we went it my brother and I buffed with aquaveil and protect using our yag drinks before that so we would have refresh pld casted protect and shell then rested food was fishkabob our avatars fought the furries he tanked the main bat only thing that could have gone better was that my furrie intterupted my casting and i was hit down into red life but hi potion shiva diamond dust and victory was ours

    can a smn solo it using the same strategy as in the mini avatar battle? send ramuh, judgement bolt, resummon, judgement bolt
    The best part of Final Fantasy XI is its rich storyline. It separates this game from other MMORPGs. I chose to give my character a storyline that goes along with the game's storyline. I find that this is a more fun way to play the game. Playing the game just to fight in the endgame and collect elite equipment is very boring and is totally missing the main objective of the game, which is to guide your character through the storyline which is to save the world.
    how do do this fast
    # Feb 03 2005 at 1:41 PM Rating: Decent
    This BCNM can't be solo'd, nor can it be dou'd by 2 BST's. This can be done with 2 BST's and a healer. I went as a BST/BRD for paeon and a 1 point chr boost. My LS mate went as RDM/BLM, for more MP then RDM/WHM. My other LS mate went as BST/WAR. Now after you go into the BCNM(I've renamed this HUTNM, because it takes place in the same place as the DRG quest.) you all zone in on top off each other. only need protect, and I threw up paeon. The rdm rests as the 2 bst run up and charm the Furies. If you dont charm them rite away, run around the edge of the BCNM, and keep trying. After you charm them, attack Colo-Colo. After both are charmed and fighting Colo-Colo, we'd cure up and I'd put paeon back up. Then rest, if your poisoned it'll wear real quick. just keep charming the Furies until Colo-Colo is dead. the rest to near full. KEEP CHARMING BATS AS LONG AS YOU NEED BUT YOU ONLY HAVE 15 MIN TO BEAT THE BCNM. Then pit one furies on the other and let them fight, when its down to one bat the BST/WAR tanked it and after like a min we killed it. If things go bad charm it and rest. After you kill the last bat the Armoury Chest will spawn, then cross your fingers and hope for an astral ring(425K) or a thunder spirt pact(195k)!

    Actually this BCNM CAN be solo'd. Doesn't happen often and it's not something that will work everytime, but yes it can be solo'd. And personally 2 SMNs can do it faster and better than 2 BSTs.

    I've done this a couple of times now, and finally figured out a good strategy. My buddy and I were both smn/rdm and we had another buddy blm/rdm. The blm/rdm healed me as I went in and used Ramuh and my 2 hour. Our first time in a group of 3 we did it in 2:58. Since our blm buddy isn't on as much as us we tried it with just 2 smns. Here's how it went.

    I was the leader so I went first, and boy did I get hate. I sent Ramuh after Colo-colo after all the bats grouped I used Judgment Bolt. They killed Ramuh, then my buddy used his Judgment bolt. I recasted my Ramuh, used potions and ether. My mp was 44+ and I smashed on my Judgment Bolt Macro until it finally went off. Then there went all the bats. We beat our first record (I think we got 2:26, not sure). Anyways 2 smns and a lot of hi-potions and the right macro set up you can take them down. We got the Platoon Lance and split the money. We just need more seals to get an orb and try again.

    Beat thia 3 time in a row the 2nd 2 times with out 2hours pt was whm/blm, bst/whm, and mnk/war(me)

    the 1st time i went in and basically soloed the main batby that time the bst had charmed one of the furies and it was basically over, the sencond and 3rd time i went and soloed 1 fury while the bst charmed the othe one and used it to attack the main bat. the 2nd time hit a lil trouble but ihad 300 tp form right the 1st fury and wipe the main bat out. then just rested and waited for the charm to ware off. the 3rd time it went alot better i used my WS when i hit 100% and too the 1st furry out real quick and it was ez steet from there on in.
    got 2 thunder spirt pacts and some other crap but it was too damn ez over all :D
    in regards to a post made by a bst solo'ing this
    # Feb 03 2005 at 2:24 AM Rating: Decent
    *** this is in regards to a post i read on another forum of a bst claiming he solo'ed this. i know that 2 bst could easily do this, but id just like to share with everyone my comments i made about his post in hopes that he sees this.

    ive done this bcnm about 12 times, almost all were won when i used my two hour (as bst). i take a whm, smn and myself. after reading, and re-reading ur post, i will say i dont think this is possible. i argue'ed with an ls member about this today. im a 41 bst, and at lev 20 i have the absolute BEST chr gear u can have. Out of the 12 times ive done this as elv bst/whm, about 4 or 5 attempts i ran in and got the charm off the bat. BUT ive also gone in and missed 7 in a row. This is again, with monster signa, the ribbon, tuna sushi all the good stuff. the few ive done without using two hour, the bat will only hold charm for a MAX of maybe 45 secs, and for that reason, i dont think there is any way on earth u could have done this solo. the only way this would ever happen solo is if u got REALLY REALLY frickin lucky or used some really ridiculous potions, not just a hi potion. our whm has casted banish on cola and not done 21 damage with it..so how could u do that much with whm subbed? i think it would be easier to solo the 2-3 dragon than 3 bats. for the 20-30 seconds that ur bat isnt charmed, two bats smacking u will do an immense of amount of damage, u wont be able to cast cure because they are BOTH hitting u and interrupting your cast. maybe u did do this solo, but id have to see a video to believe it. thats probably why ur post was rated so low, because anyone thats done this will prolly agree with me...i mean, ive lost this bcnm with a whm and a smn lol, not because i did something wrong, but mis charms are going to happen and when they do things get ugly fast.(special note on that...the ones we lost, there was no two hour available for me to use, but we tried 1/2 the times anyways without it, we still won a few, but lost a few as well..
    First Try
    # Feb 03 2005 at 1:15 AM Rating: Decent
    My Party was a me (as RDM/whm), a war/monk, and a smn/blm.

    Went into the battle, first used meat cheifkabob, and yagado drink (forgive the spelling errors its 6am). Spelled everyone up and rested. Myself and Gohankakarot used Ikarus Wings (100% tp instantly but means you cant use potions for 12hrs). Instead of going against the main bat directly, went for the bat on the left, Fastblade Burning blade SC. Smn then used Ramuh's thunder II and took out the rest of the left bats hp. Gohankakarot then took middle bat while i distracted the right bat from the smn. 1 minute later after weakening Colo-colo and right bat, used thunder II again and won.

    Tips: Summoner - thunder II ROCKS in this battle.
    Redmage/Whm good combo too, enaero+healing+blazing spikes and aquaveil, none of my spells got interupted, they were taking between 6-9 dmg for hitting me and an additional 5-11 dmg when i hit them.
    Get a good basher who can take a little dmg, only haf to use Cure II twice, end of battle all of us were above half hp.

    Hope this helps.
