Battle Notes

To begin, trade 40 Beastmen Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno in order to obtain the Rare/Ex item Star Orb. Upon receiving the orb, make your way to the Waughroon Shrine zone located in the Palborough Mines dungeon.

Be advised that only three players can enter the battlefield, that their levels will be capped at level 40, and that there is a 15 minute time limit that starts the moment the orb trader enters the battlefield.

Upon entering the battlefield, there will be 8 Princess Jellies spread out in an open ended circle that, once aggroed, will slowly begin to move towards the center of the room.

  • The Princesses will not deviate from their path towards the center of the room and cannot be slept by any method. Their motion can be impeded though with Gravity and Bind effects.

  • Besides the normal array of Slime tp moves, each Princess is governed by a single element that denotes what spells they are capable of casting, as well as what element they are strong/weak to.

    • The spells that the Princesses can cast are their respective element's DoT spell (Burn for the Fire governed, Bio for the Dark governed, etc.), their tier 1 elemental damage spell (Banish for the Light governed, Blizzard for the Ice governed, etc), and the Bind spell.

If any Princess Jellies reach the center of the room, they will "merge" into a Queen Jelly a more powerful version of the Princess Jelly.

  • The amount of hp that the Queen Jelly "spawns" with is based on the number of Princess Jellies that reach the center. (If only one Princess reaches the center, then the Queen will have 1/8 of its max hp).

In order to spawn the armoury crate, all mobs in the battlefield must be defeated within the allotted time.

Battle Strategies

One strategy involved for successfully beating this BCNM involves two heavy DD melee and one Mage, with the melee starting on opposite ends of the circle and working their way towards one another, with the mage curing and buffing the melee while debuffing/ nuking (where feasible) the Jellies.

Another very popular strategy involves a similar setup to the one above, with the notable exception of starting at one end of the circle, together, and work their way around to the other end, while the mage drops cures and bind/gravity on the Jellies. Usually, with this strategy, the Princess Jellies are cleared before reaching the inner circle, and therefore the Queen Jelly does not spawn.

It amazes me Ni still goes for as much as it does. This BCNM is so pathetically easy, and I went 2/2 on Ni today... I know others went 3/3.

The ring, I can at least understand... Haven't seen that drop yet.

me and my ls mates do this all the time with no problem... and have gotten really good drops too, nix2 and the ring...
setup is
easy peasy if you ask me.. just do em one at a time.. whm binds and heals if needed
pup setup is rng frame
and sam .. well he just kicks it into high gear
and honestly if it does go to the queen phase.. dont really matter.. cause the health at that point will be so diminished not really a worry....
basically just work as a team and dont seperate from fighting.. just do 2 on one till they all dead

Didn't see any posts on this, unless I missed one, but is this soloable at all, i.e., with a SMN or BST? Or would it be useless to even try....
Fun times

I did this with my boyfriend and some other people from the Linkshell. We broke the time cleared Record with 2 DRG's and a RDM.


one of us went left, the other right and went around the room killing the jellys


the RDM casted gravity and dia as well as kept us healed.

I really like this BCNM... was quite fun. :) However, we did it 4 times and only got the archer's ring out of it on our 3rd try.

well i did this last night went in as Blu, with a drg and rdm and totally owned these things not one reached the middle the only ones killing was me and drg thx khiri and ilsewizard for ur help lets just hope nxt time i get the drop from it
# Feb 26 2008 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
just did this on lakshmi 6 times last night, we went 6/6 on fights, but not to great of drops, one archers ring droped and that was it. all else was mostly crap.

party setup was me as RDM/NIN and both buddys as DRG/WHM. it works very well, I died one time, cause i tried to kill with them after the first round of gravity/binds.., but i put reraise up cause i seen it comin. just be smart and dont waste mp on anything but cures, gravity, and stoneskin before you convert. we are all 3 trying to get ni. to drop. wish us luck
Fun time for friends XD

Me and some LS friends did this 12 times (so many seals saved up XD) the other day for :ni drops. Our setup was bst/war (she switched to BLM for free warps mid way through heh) drg/whm (me) and sch/blm. The sch was able to use the JA that makes the next enfeeble -ga to bind 4 or 5 of the slimes at once, so that was really helpful, other than that like everyone said, a very easy BCNM. The bst jug pet would take random spells like my wyvern to help with dmg, only a few times did I have to use healing breath. (Plus sch has regen2 at this point, so he would regen2 and nuke when not using bind) We only saw 2 Utsu:Ni drops out of the 12 runs, and no ring, but it was a real fun time.
Too easy!

as lng as you are lv40 with a properly leveled sub and decent gear, Toyr good to go for this bcnm.

As drg/rdm, I can dou this with a thf, I dont even need a full pty.

Any two melee, with a good mage, should be able to handle it too. Personally though, this is where drg/mage can shine. 1 drg/mage and 2 melee will break the time records.
wish me luck

Fun and games

Just thought I would make a quick post, and give an alternative party set-up to the old standby. 2 Linkshell buddies and I decided to do this on the spur of the moment the other night and the party setup was as follows: PLD/WAR; DRK/NIN; and DRG/WHM (me). DRK would cast sleep on the farthest to the left, then Bind on 2nd one, then help us melee from right to left. PLD was responsible for keeping herself alive, while I worried about myself and the DRK. Went 3/3 with no problems, the drops were mostly garbage, but got two Phalanx drops, so it's better than being a telewhore for a couple hours. Anyway, if your doing this BCNM remember, spell from left to right, melee right to left. If your on Carbuncle, and want in a helpful LS, send me a tell.

Our 1st 2 runs, sam/drg/whm
# Oct 16 2007 at 5:36 PM Rating: Decent
Just did this a lil while ago. Setup was DRG/THF SAM/WAR WHM/BLM
what we did was pretty much as stated in most posts. Go in buff up, rest mp, and start from right and move left. DRG would take one and then I would take one. Our WHM would bind and sleep the others, fights were roughly 6-7minits. None of the jellies went up to queen status. Our luck went as followed:

1st run: 2nd run:

1,666gil each 1,833gil each
Shikar Bow Mana Ring
Mana Ring Vile Slime Oil x2
Gashenite Sealed Mace
Steel Sheet Ice Spikes
Vile Slime Oil x2 Erase
Archers ring

Total: ~410k ~10k

Our WHM walked away 400k richer, our DRG walked downstairs to drown his frustraitions out with my pie. Me I got lotsa hugs and one annoying as hell sister gloating about her archers ring, and I made a lil oer 3k for not doing much at all. This is an easy bcnm for just about anyone.

Well Happy huntings all, hope yall all have as much luck as we do!

DRG/WAR + RDM/BLM NEARLY duetted this. No joke.

We had another DRG/WAR but his XBox messed up prior to entry.

I was effing and blinding, 'cos it was my orb... then I thought, what the hell, let's try it. The RDM was game as well.

Tried it with normal 2(DD)+RDM tactics, except for that fact that we were one DD down... I'll tell you all now that I got SEVEN of the jellies, SEVEN. One centred and formed a Queen with ****-poor HP - yet we ended up wiping at that point, because the RDM couldn't Convert again and I was hurting pretty badly. First time either of us had ever wiped in this BC as well.

I think that if I'd had better gear (I had to literally fill my Body and Legs slots with the first things I could find, which were Elder's Surcoat and Beetle Subligar), and been better prepared for me being on my own, I could have owned that last jelly before it centred, DRG style.

But what can I say? We wiped. Though my hat goes off to the RDM who did such a good job that she deserves a degree in kickassery...

too easy
# Aug 09 2007 at 6:11 AM Rating: Decent
Done this bcnm over 100+ times.. never lost. Pt setup is always whm/blm or whm/rdm, sam/war, and war/nin. Buffs and rest to full, then melee start working right to left, while the whm enfeebles with bind, sleep, etc; casting erase and the occasional cure to the melee. Enjoy!
Easy one!

This is a very easy BCNM to do with the right party make up! I did it 7 time last night and we went 6/7 with 2 different party makeups.The 1st 3 we went (Me) Drg/Whm, Sam/War and Nin/war (this was my 1st time doing this BCNM!)(we all started on the right 1 1st and worked counter clockwise!) On our 1st run I made the mistake of staying to close to the jelly behind me and didn't get a dia off in time to survive but there were only 3 left at that point and the 2 other ppl were able to finish it off even though it made it to Queen status. Not really hard the drop was crap! 2nd run same strategy start right and work around very easy! They didn't get to center and once again crap drop! (By the way I started with 70mp and only use 43!) 3rd run w/ this group same results killed all before reaching the center and once again crap drop! Now the nin had to leave so we picked up a Drg/Rdm LOL He thought that he was supoose to bind the left side while me and sam worked the right and this did not go well! Party wipe!!! So I made sure to tell him to only attack one at a time with us. This time we got down to the last one whiched formed Queen and it only took 1 shot to kill it! NI drop!!! Next run we just crushed them not even close to the center! Another NI drop! Last run Again killed them all before reaching center and low and behold another NI drop! So We saw the Queen twice and had one party wipe but all in all it was very easy and we got NI to drop 3 times so I was happy and so were the others! I will be doing this as much as possible with the right party make up! (We didn't even SC them!)
easy bcnm, but..
# Jun 07 2007 at 4:39 PM Rating: Decent
..most of the drops are near worthless due to the deflation, and how often people do this. Archers ring and utsu: ni are really the only money drops.

The fight itself is easy, simply have your two dds go clockwise killing the jellies as they head to the center, and your rdm go counter clockwise binding and enfeebling them. Our dds are pld and war, and pld is actually very effective in this as you can play a bit more dd wise, and use your own mp effectively.
2 x DRG/mage pwn

DRG/BLU + DRG/WHM, and we duo this easily: 6/6 so far. Adding a 3rd participant would just be dead weight and another person whom with to divide the spoils.
# Apr 16 2007 at 5:09 PM Rating: Decent
another party setup I use is: drk/whm (me), pld/war, drg/whm.

basic strat was drg starts at left, drk starts right, and pld starts at back.

just basic melee fight except drk keep 2 jellies bound while drg and pld work towards each other then come back for clean up (usually only one mob left).

only had jellies merge once (first run) cause pld d/ced after he killed his first jelly.

of the 5 runs so far we had 3 Nis, 1 Archer's, 1 Erase, 3 Manas, and 2 Marks with various lesser items.

we did this when ever we have the seals

# Mar 24 2007 at 10:50 AM Rating: Decent
