Battle Notes

In order to enter the battlefield you will need to bring a Moon Orb, which is obtained by trading 60 Beastmen's Seals to Shami at (H-8) in Port Jeuno. When you are ready, trade the Moon Orb to the Burning Circle inside Qu'Bia Arena and choose to enter the battle Celery.

Up to 3 people may enter and you will all receive a level 60 restriction. You have 15 minutes to win. You will fight four NM ghosts:


They correspond to four cardinal damage weaknesses: Slice (Scythe, Greataxe, etc.), Piercing (Arrow, Dagger, Lance), Blunt (Staff, Clugel, Hand to Hand), and Magic. Knowing this trick, it's not a hard fight unless your WHM gets baned, in which case more than likely you're headed for a dive. Bane, for those of you who don't know, is like Curse 2. The NMs will use Bane instead of Curse like ghost types usually do. Note that bane has a wide radius is AOE, and cuts your max hp/mp in half. If you don't stay on the very edge of casting range you will be hit. Also, if it starts casting ancient magic, just run, don't bother trying to stun, we didn't land a single one.

Honestly, this BCNM is a joke as long as you attack the right one with the right setup.
We entered the BCNM and buffed up a bit, had Holy Water ready in case of Bane. At the start of the fight, the DRK SATAed onto me, and we commenced killing Shredded Samson. We pulled the ghost to the edge of the room, which seemed to allow the RDM to avoid Bane, which it casted during both fights. We had no trouble at all killing it, as we were hitting for 90ish with swords, 200+ with scythes. After a few minutes of attacking, he went down. Got the earring and mask on the fight try, with around 200k in assorted other drops. Never came close to death, never even ran into low mp as the ghost was only hitting for around 50. Just be sure to have the right party ready for the fight and you'll laugh at how easy this is.

Total clear time: Around 6 minutes, 30 seconds. (Record on Alexander right now.)
Total drop price from 1 kill: Around 1.6 million.
Good luck everyone. ^^

The WHM was a friend of the other WAR/NIN, so he dident trade an orb.

First run: We lost, by about 50HP.. :'(

Second run (My orb): Decided to play it safe, both me and the other WAR 2h'd when we had TP, stacked with mighty strikes and Berserk (aggressor was taken by Paralasis) Rampage hit for 1924 o.o (hehe my record)

Teleport Ring: Dem
Elusive Earring
Libation Abjuration
Oblation Abjuration
Rainbow cloth
Ebony Log
Silk Cloth (x3)

WHM took one of the abjurations for his cursed soup, and I had the other WAR lot on the Silk cloth so she wasent completely empty handed.

1.9m here on asura. Easy fight too :).

Take something to remedy paralasis (from Ice spikes), and a stack of holy water. First time a big part of why we lost is because he started casting Quake on me, and I couldent get shadows back up.

Did this tonight with this setup Nin/war Thf/nin and Rdm/whm, and we fought Shredded Samson. Everything went smoothly except for 1st run which I (thf) got baned then a -ga spell finished me off, no big deal had reraise hairpin and got back up and finished him off (only loosing 400 xp) My advise to any thf's out there that want to do this (since its one of the only BCNM we can do) is to go with the weapon setup I had. Main weapon Hornet Needle Secondary weapon was Muskateer Commanders Falcion. The falcion was doing criticals for 136 damage I couldn't believe it, that with the hornetneedle boost in attack speed we were able to win this fight without a sweat. Well hope that helps~ and let the thf open the chest we seemed to get more stuff that way.
Good run

Did this over the weekend. Me and a pld friend organized a one-orb run with his rdm friend, so we were drk/thf war and rdm. We've done this once before only I went drk/war and pulled hate too soon.
This time, I went /thf. It took a little longer than normal for me to pull hate, but I ended up with it anyway. The odd thing is, invinceable wouldn't turn him off me! Pld had to cover me through invince! How weird... anyone else notice this?

At any rate, we won, no deaths. Got elusive earring worth 800k, nursemaid's harp, couple of abjurations, three silk cloths, and a rainbow cloth.

WoW! Se really screwd this one up. Its just way to ez. Me (thf/nin), Deejayz (nin/war) and Hador (rdm/whm) went in and too on shredded samson.

1st run: I uses an icarus ring courtesy of Deejayz. And we started out with a SATA+ Dancing Edge. None of the ghosts aggro so just have ure nin go stand at his back. Finished the rest of his hp multiple skillchains of Blade-Chi>>> TA+dancing Edge. He was dead in no time.

Drops: Elusive Earring, Nursemaid's Harp, 3 silk cloth, 1 rainbow cloth, the aburations, and zircon i believe. (1.2mil in Caitsith... not bad not bad... lol)

2cd run: This one didnt go to well. He decided to Bane right at the start and then stonega III for 550 dmg (1 hit killed me ) Amazingly the nin and rdm were able to kill him even though i was dead the whole fight. Good thing we had rdm instead of whm for convert and such.

Drops: Trailers kukri, Knightly mantle, same cloths , same aburations and some gem. (about 700k on caitsith)

3rd run: Tottally normal run.. I learned to run away any time he started casting an aga spell. Killled him with ease.

Drops: (waste of freaking 60 seals) Nursmaids Harp, same cloths, zircon, same abjurations. (150k) BAH!

We went in with 2 monks and a blm, figured on pulling mauled murdock and making some quick cash on 1 run.

we hit for 20 damage a hit on the ghost "weak" to blunt. We got it to half health before we figured out we were going to get rocked, so we escaped.

Hello, I'm a 56NIN/WAR, and I've been saving up seals to get ready to do this BCNM for the elusive earring. I know that if you engage one ghost, the other 3 disappear. If that is the case, if say me, and a THF/ or /THF use silent oils (or have the mage sneak us... w/e.) and run behind the ghost of our choice for SATA (which is probably Sampson due to popular demand) will the ghosts aggro? This would give me an edge for holding hate, just wanted to know in advance, thank you...
# Mar 13 2005 at 2:54 AM Rating: Decent
So you only need to kill 1 NM ghost ??

i will make pt of PLD,RDM,DRK(me) and try this

Sampson right ??
Easy as hell
# Mar 11 2005 at 5:34 PM Rating: Decent
We beat this easily.
Set up:

we chose Shredded Samson the rdm and whm stood at the edge and healed/refreshed the nin. Nin just beat the crap outta it. By the way, enfeebling are hard as hell to land on this guy. The only ones the rdm could land was shock, choke, and burn. As well as dia and bio.
Samson for gun RNG

Did 3 runs last night.

Setup was
RNG/NIN (me)

Basic plan was for PLD to run away in case of AM or big element-ga2 cast (worked flawlessly), use holy waters on bane (almost worked flawlessly), and have WHM stay out of range of sleepga (worked flawlessly). I would shoot and PLD would keep hate as best as he could. We pulled Samson each time. My damage as Hume RNG with musk+1 and rice dumplings was quite acceptable (130ish DPS and 700-800+ slug shots.)

1st run (my orb)
As it turned out, neither the WHM nor the PLD thought to bring juices. Which made things a little dicey when they both ran out of MP, lol. However, Invincible got us through one tough spot and then I finished off Samson with barrage, eagle eye, and slug shot.

hi-ether tank
dem ring
gold ingot
rainbow cloth
3x silk cloth
About 200K worth altogether (on Siren.) No big ticket drops.

2nd orb (PLD)
We went back to Jeuno and got some yagudo drinks. The second run was going smoothly, we had Samson down to about 35% HP, until the following happened:
(1) my slug shot drew aggro
(2) samson baned
(3) samson double attacked a couple times ripping through utsusemi and preventing me from getting it back up
(4) samson ko'd me

In retrospect once he baned and came after me I should have shadowbound him and run away or called for cover. I wanted to save cover for a slug>barrage>slug late in the fight but that obviously was a mistake. Die and learn.

The PLD died a bit later with Samson at about 10% health. Fortunately the WHM ran out of there and was able to Raise 2 us.

3rd orb (whm)
Basically we had no problems this time.

dem ring
hi-potion tank
rainbow cloth
item I don't remember that was worth about 5K
3x silk cloth
Total value about 175K on siren. Again, so-so drops.

So overall, have a contingency plan in place in case the tank loses hate and the ghost banes at the same time. And make sure spellcasters bring drinks. Otherwise this BCNM is eminently doable, and even without the big ticket drops the gil isn't awful. (I've gotten 50K on BCNM40 orbs a few times.)

Tried this BCNM today. went as 3 bst/whm.
We entered, used call beast, then buffed up and rested to 100%
all 3 of us used carrie pets, soon as we were ready i went in and pulled shredded sampson since thats what posts seemed to recomend.
in short, we were wiped all over the floor. carrie was hitting for 7 dmg! we saw that pets were hitting low so joined in insted of waiting to call new pets, and we were hitting for 70+.
why are pets hitting so low? special attacks were hitting for 400+ damage, rest was awefull. I sent carrie away and called a saber pet, and he was hitting for a massive 9... should we be pulling a different ghost?
any input would be nice, thanks in advance.

Every post I've seen about doing this with a BST pt says to use Carries against Annihilated Anthony, they do far more damage to him than the other ghosts.

Yeah, it doesn't really make sense, but there you go.

I was Dumb.
I did not head the warnings of others.
I was owned by Punctured Percy.

Thief Weapon: Dagger = Piercing Damage.
Damage Inflicted 1 Damage per hit, 2's occasionally. And Critical Hits Ranging in the High 4's... Magic and Crossbows did close to jack **** too. Asside from testing a Spear, nothing piercing damage effects Punctured Percy.

I believe that particular ghost has a bug, the others I hear are weak to thier respective titles.

We Did Shedded Sampson and Succeeded the following Two times.

Did this last night witht he following setup: 60 RNG/NIN (me), 61 NIN/WAR, and 65 RDM/WHM. Great setup, RDM of course never ran out of mp, and the NIN could blink away sleepga, and ancient magic. We went after Samson (weak to melee attacks). The RDM could only land 1 enfeeble (Paralyze) out of the about 50 attempts in the 3 attempts we did. As far as me, all I did was keep pounding away on Samson and SC'd with the NIN (Jin>>>SW). My SW was doing about 800 per, caused a lot of hate. I only did SW twice per battle; 1 about 1/2 life and the other to kill it. When Samson has a sliver of life left hes loves to use Bane (Curse) and Sleepga; vice his regular attacks. We won all 3 attempts with 0 deaths, drops were:

Elusive Earring x2
Walkyrie Mask x2
Hi-potion Tank x1
Silk Cloth x9
Rainbow Cloth x3
Teleport-Dem Ring x1
Stones x3
and some other misc junk.

Big prize was the Elusive Earring, sold both for 795k and 800k. WOOT Masks go for 300k. All in all very easy BCNM. Actually easiest BCNM I ever did. If you have any questions, send me a /tell or PM me here. Good Luck^^

Oh yea one more thing....if you bring a RDM, it would be wise to sub WHM for Paralyna. Samson's Ice Spikes will Paralyze the melee and they can not be dispelled.

Ignore the other ghosts and go for Shredded Samson. Even RNGs. Samson is weak to sword, katana, axe, great axe, great katana, great sword, and scythe; if you pick any other ghost it's almost a guaranteed loss.

A BLM can main heal in this BCNM, just make sure to not get baned.

Finished 3 runs last night with the following setup : DRK/WAR PLD/WAR RDM/BLM.

We found it to be a very easy and fast BCNM, with our battle averaging 4.5 min.

Only thing that is "threatening" (and I use this term very loosely) is its Bane (curse) ability. First fight it used it 4X, but in the next 2, it didnt use it at all.

It did cast AM, just once, but our DRK (elvaan) managed to STUN it, contrary to what is posted in the description.

In my opinion, a RDM is better than WHM in this fight, just because RDM can convert; Do not even try to nuke/enfeeble, none of them will land. I have pimping gear for RDM at 60 and could not land any..ended up healing the entire fight. (Well we fought Shredded Samson, thats probably why ^^)

2/3 Elusive Earrings and 1/3 Knightly mantle were the main drops. The cooking abjuration, rainbow cloth and 3 silk cloth dropped 100% of the time.

Did this a week ago 3 full runs, 9 fights with DRG/WHM, PLD/WAR, and RDM/BLM. Never had a single death so it went was pretty well. Me (DRG) and the PLD did Red Lotus Blade > Skewer = Fusion with the RDM bursting Fire. None of us used anything but regular food, RDM just kept me and PLD refreshed. Wyvern was the main healer, I just casted Dia whenever PLD got to half life and healed for 190. We got elusive earring 4 out of 9 times, so about 50%, 2 kukri's, and 1 mask - among other things. All in all made about 5 million gil between us.

Last night I went with 2 members of my set.
Penguination Pld/Nin (sub nin for ancient magic)
Foresta Rdm/Whm
Illfearin Drk/Thf

We all have above average equipment, me with 2 vigor rings Foresta with just about every good red mage item you can think of (even a scorp harness for soloing O.o) and illfearin with dual sniper+1s (i think +1) and a haubergeon+1.

We went after shredded samson 3 times, and beat him easily all three times.

We all bought 12 holy waters, food, hi pots and ethers,poison potions for sleep, and illfearin got an icarus wing for fight one.

Fight one:
We go in, buff up, and use our food, i cast utsusemi, and Ill uses his icarus wing. We set up for a SATA. Foresta starts with a fire 2 in front of the mob just for a little extra damage (plus she does great damage for a rdm ^.-) and then with its back still to us Ill did a SATA Sickle Moon (he uses greatsword). It did massive damage, I flashed, reblinked, sentineled and blah blah. My sword was hitting for 50-90 per hit, with almost 200 on criticals. Ill hit for 200-300 each hit (without souleater. jebus.) and around 370 on criticals. We continued to fight as such, and around 60% hp he started with spells and abilities. He cast ancient magic once after Ill got a critical (and the agro) and he got nailed by burst, but had 300 hp left. Foresta got him back to full so fast it looked like she used convert with 5 hp. She converted, and i got hate back. Next he used sleepga 2, which did nothing, we had poison pots on. Then he used bane. This wasnt scary at all for me and ill, foresta didnt get hit. we used holy water and foresta got us up to full very fast (i cured myself also). Then he started casting flood, and i got up blink and he didnt do crap. Well, Ills Wss did over 1100 on a few cases and my vorpal blade did 400-600, so needless to say, we owned it.

The only valuable drop was a knightly mantle ;;

Fight two:
We couldnt use an icarus wing, so we decided I would cure ill, not foresta, unless he was about to die (300ish hp) so i would keep hate. We went in with just a regular SATA, no WS. the fight went almost the exact same except i remembered to use Holy Circle. That was awesome. it interrupted 3 spells, 2 of which were ancient magic, the last was thundaga 2. Also, Ill never got hit by ancient magic. We owned it again, this time i remember the exact drops, seeing as it was my orb

Elusive Earring (700k)
Rainbow Cloth (40k)
Aquamarine (2k boo)
Silk Clothx3
the two objurations
tele mea ring

Fight three:
Identical to fight 2 except he used bane twice. Again, no problem. Again, no 2hrs used. Again, Ownage.

We got ANOTHER elusive earring and raibow cloth. We also got another crappy mea ring :P

all the clear times were close to 8 minutes.

Our grand total was just about 2mil, possibly a little less or a little more. We pooled the cash but we had a deal where i payed them both 220k so i could keep my elusive earring ^^

This was a really really fun BCNM
Did it just Now!!
# Jan 19 2005 at 5:39 AM Rating: Default
check this out, Me<DRK> and my cousin <RNG> were crying to eachother about how broke we are, so we jump to this site to find out what BCNM can we do,we cant count on any blm or brd cuz there wasnt any friend log, anyway we decided to do this 1, a pt of 3, we had a WHM, RNG and DRK<me>
as u can see, there is no TANk, we desperate so we went.
First Run..

we went in, buff, and went in, pulled Shredded Samson, we were hitting him pretty hard, thr RNG "Lilceja" doesnt have Eurotos bow"or however u write it" but other than that, he is very good equip, and me<DRK> "Salvaje" doesnt have huberg, but i went in with leeping boots and emp, pin. so, it casted bane once, it went well, but we got no good drop =(

Second Run:
same setup

we thought that we could take on a different ghost, thinking that we will get a better chance of good drops, but reading all the post writting everything down, i choose Annihilated Anthony thinking that RNG will have better chance against him "Wrong" for some reason the posts are mess up, the rng was hitting for like 40, i was hitting for like 25, we didnt wanna die, so we ran away =\

Third Run:
same setup

i went back to the web site thinking that i read the post wrong and desided to kill Punctured Percy, "Wrong again" im not gonna said anything, but that we ran away AGAIN"

we went back and got more seals to go back for 3 more runs..i switched subjob to NIN..

Fourth Run:
we went back to Shredded Samson, we buff, pulled, and that damn ghost spam sleepaga 2 for like 5 min >.< "Damn u, im waisting shihie" anyway to resume everything we killed it and got, the dagger =250k-300k "Pandemonium" and the mantle that cost about the same.

Fifth Run:
went for the same ghost, Shredded Samson, went better, but this time it spawn ancient magic, Quake, Burst and Flood. we killed it and we got the earring "Yes!!! it was my orb, and its all mine....mine...My Precious" but thats about it nothing good, other than the rainbow cloth that is worth 40k

Sixth Run:
same ghost, this time, it was crazier, me<drk> was hitting him with criticals of 356dmg, about 3 times in a row, guillotine for 900 follow by sidewinder, we owned it this time, it droped the mask, it goes for 280k-300k

in conclution, and i am very sry for all this talk, bring Holy Water, atleast 2 per fight, u get Paralyse and Blind a lot, if u bring medicine it will help the healer save some mp, believe me, in almost all the fight, the whm ran out of mp right before the fight ended... BTW the whm had vermillion, and it really doesnt matter if u have a tank of not, all u need is a healer, and 2 good DD, RNG really helps since his atk are very accurate, and sidewinder "if it hits" will do a lot of dmg,Me as a DRK..im kind of useless against ghost since i cant drain or aspir, and my 2hr is useless as well. well, c ya guys, and i hope all this blah blah blah will help a little, atleast, encourage plp to do it with out a tank. BTW Utsusemi really helps, i subbed it and my NIN is only lvl 20

Did a x3 run of Celery.


Fought Shreded Samson Ghost

Brought out the big guns in the first round and used icarus wings. Nin used mithkabobs i used sushi and whm used yagudo drinks. Began with sata dancing edge + blade:jin for detonation wich did decent damage. This was very unecesary. subsequent fights were easy without much backup items. tank must have holy water. Since we blinked it ancient magic spells never hit. We were interrupting his casting too since nin was saving his WS for that. Thf ability of Assasin helped me trick nin thoughout the fight. I saved sneak+dancing edge otherwise. Dancing edge is light based so damage to undead improves unlike my other 59 sad thf lvls!

We Pwned the entire fight. Samson likes to AOE sleep and quickly AOE bane us afterwards. As thf i never get hit so i didnt need cursna. Whm was always out of AOE range, but near casting range for melee(i.e. to the right or left of mob). Samson has icespikes and an unknown ability to me which causes paralysis if u hit it. The whm spent most of the fight unparalyzing us.

Average fight time of 8 min. Limit is 15min.

It always drops (lakshmi prices)
3 silk cloths (3.5k each)
1 rainbow cloth (35k)
1 libation abjuration
1 oblation abjuration
1 hi potion tank. (15-20k)
1 stone (we had moonstone, fluorite, jadeite)(3k)

It may drop a combination of two of these
Mea-ring (5k)
Nursemaid harp (10k WTF?!)
Trailer kukri (470k Ha! more like it)
and possibly the elusive earring (800k AWESOME) and knightly mantle (~300k) (wich we didnt get... >< orz!)

Our outcome was most possibly due to the noobish mistake of not looking at the moon phase which was 43%!

/em slaps own face.

Hope this helps everyone.

I did this with my static Whm and Pld... I'm Drk, so we did Shredded Samson. Pretty much followed what I read here. SA/TA Guillotine on Samson...

First run was messy. He used bane every 30 seconds or so and we couldn't stun him, or get the paladin out of the way fast enough to avoid the ancient magic. So we were tankless with the thing at like 1/3 HP... switched out my hauby for the chaos curiass and tanked it fairly well considering I'm a drk. The whm did a stellar job of keeping me alive... he had to benediction, and rested quite a bit during the battle... I had to guillotine Samson twice before he went down.

Round 1 (on lightsday)
2666 gil each
Nursemaid's Harp
Knightly Mantle
Libation Abjuration
Oblation Abjuration
Rainbow Cloth
Walkure Mask
3 Silk Cloth
Finish time: 9:23 (including a raise II for the pld)

Second run was much easier, we were prepared. I used souleater on the initial guillotine... did over 1500 damage... pld only started to lose hate towards the end, but they both did a good job of keeping me alive. He went down. Didn't use bane at all.

Round 2 (on firesday)
2666 gil each
Oblation Abjuration
Rainbow Cloth
3 Silk Cloth
Trailer's Kukri
Hi Potion Tank
Libation Abjuration
Finish time: 8:01

The gil drops seem to be standard, cloth drops... standard... stupid abj drops... standard.

In case you were wondering, you can only use one icarus wing every 2 hours... but the good news is, that the status wears before everyone's 2 hour is back, so it's not that big of a deal.

That's the end of my story. Can't wait to get back there and do it again. :D
