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.

Also drops a Gold Ingot.

We did this last night with PLD, DRK, and WHM. DRK subbed THF and used an Icarus Wing when we entered the arena. After we buffed up and rested, we ran behind Shredded Samson without engaging and the DRK Sneak/Tricked Guillotine onto me (PLD). The only problem we ran into was Bane. Clear time was around 8 minutes - we got:

Gold Ingot
Nursemaid's Harp
Libation Abjuration
Oblation Abjuration
Silk Cloth X3
Elusive Earring
Rainbow Cloth
2666 Gil
Names + Weaknesses?

I noticed people posting names of the mobs here, but can someone please post the name, as well as what its weakness is? I don't know anything about the BCNM, but would like to put a group together once I hit 60 for my Nursemaid's Harp. Thanks.
Mauled Murdock for archers rng!

We were: Lukos pld/war 57, Arael with whm/smn and me, Estel, with rng/sam.

As healer the best choice with a pld should be rdm/whm, with a a nin a bard/whm. Also whm/smn can be good.
For more damage (but also heal) it should be nice try smn/whm and blm/whm (stun should be so useful).

I suggest some holy water for tank and some other medicines.

The tank enters the arena and he he vokes the ghost Mauled Murdock.
Healer and rng must stay away from the tank and the ghost to avoid Ancient and so on.
As rng/sam I had always 3rd eye up, when I received too hate I used shadowbind or I just run untill Lukos provoked again it.
Every kind of rng sub job I think can be good, maybe better samurai or warrior (with warrior and berserk if you have EB you will receive a lot of enmity).
I used my special abilities only at the end of the fight (be fast or you'll be paralyzed). The pld must cover you: sidewinder, barrage, 2 hours, sidewinder.
I started at 30% - 40% of ghost's life, using meditate u could start at 40%-50% and use a sidewinder more.

I'm an elvaan ranger.
Eurytos' bow, demon arrows, yellow curry.

Damage on Mauled Murdock
Normal shoot: around 200 dmg.
Barrage: around 1000 dmg.
Sidewinder: around 1200 dmg.
2 hours: 900 dmg.

I hope this could help some of us rangers. ;)

Which ghost is good for rng?
# Dec 19 2004 at 11:57 AM Rating: Decent
On Fairy I listened that a rng sucks vs Shredded Samson, here I read a rng is good versus Shhredded Samson and Punctured Percy but in Flanagak's post it's written that rng sucks against him...
Then which is the nm ghost good for us rng?

Thank you.
Chose Shredded Samson

Did this twice tonight.
Success both times with rng/nin, pld/war, whm/sum.
We chose Shredded Samson.
First time, I traded my moon orb, buffed inside including Garuda's blink, ate food and healed.
Simple fight, went easy on the silver bullets and let Nighthawk keep the hate.
I really recommend your whm having Erase, because Bio3 is not pretty.
For my orb, I got:
Trailer's Kukri
Elusive Earring
Rainbow Cloth
3 Silk Cloths
Lib. Abjuration
Obl. Abjuration
2666 Gil.
8 min and change clear time.

Second time it was tougher.
We all used two hours because it was like now, Shredded Samson wasn't taking our ****. XD
Awesome fight though, actually.
Nighthawk's items were:
Lib. Abjuration.
Obl. Abjuration.
Rainbow Cloth.
3 Silk Cloths.
Nursemaid's Harp.
Knightly Mantle.
Walkure Mask.
2666 Gil.
Clear time of little over 10 mins.

My ranged attacks with the Musketeer's Gun+1 and silver bullets were doing about 133 with yellow curry. Slug shot did about 800+. Barrage was around 600+. Ees did 616.
Make sure your whm has Erase for Samson because he will cast Bios and Binds. Keep your tank clear of Bind so he/she can run away when the NM casts ancient magic.
Keep a macro for Blindna and Paralyna.
Nighthawk and I also had some holy waters for when the NM used Bane, so that helped alot.

Overall, fun and not too bad.
Don't underestimate it though. ^^

Good luck.

Did this today with RNG, BLM, NIN. Kinda sucked, we pulled Annihilated. Every single shot I did (rng) was like 46 or 48 some number. Slugshot, never missed, did 266 every time. It was weird.

Also, it used Bane, nothing too bad, Holy water fixes it. Only used Bane once, I didn't get hit though, we spread out.

Um... What else can I post that is usefull. Ancient magic. I let it cast quake on me cause those spells mean nothing when you have utsusemi up.

Pretty much, we wasted about 2 minutes at the start of the fight due to RL ****. Ran in, pulled Annihilated. After a few shot, saw his life chipping away, I felt confident. I kept pulling hate off the NIN, so I slowed up a bit. Mistake. I should have fired my *** off.

We got him to almost dead before time ran out. NIN thinks we should have gone for Shredded. I dunno, I wish I knew more about the ghosts. I can tell you for sure we could have won. BLM should only cast fire. Blizzard 3 or 2 or something did crap for damage. If the BLM nuked more and pulled hate accross the room (ghosts don't move so fast) I could have slugshot more.

Someone try Shredded and post. Please ; ;

When you enter there will be 4 ghosts. 3 of them will disappear when you pull one so the battle isn't as bad as it seems. Confirming the insanity about the peirced ghost, when we pulled this one we really had a rough time. Barely got him past half life before the 15 minute timer ran out. We went as NIN/RNG/RDM, RNG was doing pretty consistant 15 damage on this one and NIN highest hit was 9 damage (and only once, average was 2-3). I highly recommend not pulling this one.

Also drops the following items:
Elusive Earring
Knightly Mantel
Trailer's Kukri
Silk Cloth
Teleport Mea Ring
Teleport Dem Ring

We did this BCNM 8 times and just a FYI there seems to be a bug that I have read in the forums and can confirm.

The Piercing ghost is not weak to piercing at all right now. As a Ranger I was doing an avarage of 12 damage to him. This is on the Seraph server.

A bug report has been filed to SE for this issue.
