In order to enter the battlefield you will need to bring a Star Orb, which is obtained by trading 40 Beastmen's Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno. When you are ready, trade the Star Orb to the Burning Circle inside Qu'Bia Arena and choose to enter the battle Undying Promise.
Up to 3 people may enter and you will all receive a level 40 restriction. You have 15 minutes to win. You will fight Ghul-I-Beaban, but you're really fighting five monsters, not one. He will resurrect himself 4 times throughout the battle. Each incarnation of Ghul-I-Beaban is stronger then the last. His first three forms will be DRKs, using Absorb spells and low-level magic and obviously hitting pretty hard. After that, he will revive himself as a Black Mage two times. They might not hit as hard, but spells like Blizzard II will bring a lot of pain to make up for it, ESPECIALLY considering you've just fought three DRKs that, while decently easy on their own, have probably whittled away at your party's HP and MP.
Party setup used in this guide:
When ready, enter the battlefield. Once inside, eat your food and buff up. The party runs towards the arena. Before the doorway, the WHM kneels to rest and will remain resting until the 3rd form, unless there is an emergency. Fight in the center of the room, as you don't want your WHM to get hit by Ghul-I-Beaban's Drain spell.
The NIN should only use Provoke twice for each form, once as soon as the form appears and again when Provoke is ready again. This way, Provoke will be ready for the next form. The NIN should use elemental ninjitsu as they do a lot of damage against this monster. Skillchain is Blade: To ==>> SA/Combo.
If the NIN keeps shadows up, the WHM should not be needed at this point except in emergencies, or in the case of AOE blind move. If this happens, Blindna the NIN and the MNK uses Chakra. By the end of the 3rd form, the NIN will also need to be re-hasted. It is very important that the monster stay in the center of the arena. Good times to cast Cure are after a form is killed or right after the second provoke.
When he changes into his fourth form (BLM), the WHM should Elemental Seal/Silence him immediately.
