Tried this with pt listed below. 2 RNG/NIN with Utsusemi and a RDM/BLM. RDM casts Elemental Seal + Sleep on Monarch and each RNG picks a opo to solo. Everything was going pretty smoothly at first, we finished off the opo we were soloing and went for the thrid weak one, but by that time the monarch woke up and went after RDM and he couldnt get sleep off in time and died. Right as RDM died is about when we finished off third weak opo, so we still had somewhat of a chance. But in the confusion we got a little off track, it looked like the Heir was attacking the other Rng so i started putting arrows in it but it ended up killing the other RNG/NIN which left me, all alone. So I whipped out my crossbow and bloody bolts and went to town, i was shooting bolts left and right, pounding my Utsusemi macro, and finally i did it i killed one of the opo's. At this rate i still had a chance only one opo left and im at half health, no sweat. I shoot some more bloody bolts at the last opo but i dont gain any health, ok maybe i missed or something, shoot another no dmg no health. I soon relized in the confusion i had killed the Heir first making the monarch immune to physical dmg. I died shortly after. Anyway sorry this was so long and dramatic im at work and pretty bored. Point is this is a really easy BCNM with RNG/NIN RNG/NIN and RDM/BLM. Havent tried it again but we will very soon. Just kinda went in the first time not knowing what to expect.

my plan

My plan:

rng/nin #1
rng/nin #2


Opo-Opo Monarch
Opo-Opo Heir
Myrmidon Apu-Apu
Myrmidon Epa-Epa
Myrmidon Spo-Spo

rdm/blm elemental seal sleep > monarch

rng/nin #1 barrage Apu-apu
rng/nin #2 barrage epa-epa
each ranger solos until it's dead
rng/nin #1 and #2 both kill spo-spo together

after the 3 weaklings are quickly eliminated, you don't have to worry about losing utsusemi shadows anymore and both rangers keep doing regular shots on Monarch and recast utsusemi or stop shooting as needed.

After Monarch dies, Heir will aggro and your barrages should be ready again sometime during this battle. Use 2x barrage + weapon skills on the Heir to kill it. rdm/blm simply cures as needed. If things look bad sleep and recover utsusemi

Way to post something with like no info on it yet.

This battle features 5 Opo-Opos, The Monarch, the Heir, and the named Opos. Of the named Opos, only Epa-Epa is charmable; however, they can all be put to sleep.

Here's the catches to the battle:

1. The Heir does not attack until the Monarch is dead.
2. The Heir will be immune to magical attacks if the Monarch dies first.
3. The Monarch will be immune to physical attacks if the Heir dies first.

The named Opos are very weak and the Heir is stronger the Monarch. Suggested group is: Melee/WAR with high VIT (MNK), BRD/WHM, WHM/SMN or BLM.

Do you fight all of the Opo-opos at once?
