has any one tried a simple party setup like 2 War/nin's and a rdm that way you have Damage and 2 capable tanks and a guy who can sleep the crap out of the enemy... hmmm I think im going to try that LOL.
Post if you've won

# Feb 15 2006 at 10:54 AM Rating: Default
has anyone tried BLM/WHM, BLM/WHM, RDM/BLM?

RDM can ele seal sleep one at start

RDM then bind/gravity/sleep(refresh BLM) w/e the
2nd one while the BLMs nuke, then sleep,
nuke repeat until dead.

i've never done this, so idk how much HP they have or if nukes are that effective, but it seems easy, and the /WHM to aid paralyze

might want some MP medicines in case u run short on MP, if anyone has a better way do tell^^, i wna go try this now, Take care

This BC has a catch to it. When one raptor dies, the other becomes much stronger.

I suggest planning to kill them at the same time.

Anyone ever try thid setup?


One Nin tanks each and Rdm heals and keeps them paralynaed. In theory it should work, but I don't know having never tried it. The damage would be good with the elemental wheel being used, and noone should take massive amounts of damage. If anyone has or does try this let me know.
So close
# Dec 18 2005 at 2:33 AM Rating: Decent
Well we attempted this tonight and came very very close.

Spydermob 50 BST/WHM
Cider 50 BST/WHM
Khansas 50 BST/WHM

We each brough 3 CC's, 3 Hi-pots, 3 Hi-ethers, 3 Yag Drinks, and a Tavnazian Taco.

We started this fight by zoning in and preping fight.

-Call Beast CC
-Protectra & Shellra
-Tavnazian Taco

Then we rested MP to full while timers reset to 3 minutes. We went in and set two pets on the left raptor and one pet and 3 BST on the right raptor.

We were doing good until they started their circular run. We pulled ours into the corridor and let the pets tank the other one in the middle of the arena, (this was uneffective b/c ours would run back to the arena to run in a circle where we couldn't hit it and then come back to attack us.

We did a good job though and had ours below 30% and the other below 20% before the 1st pet died. At this point errors plagued the way. As one BST was calling a new pet the raptor paralyzed him causing call to fail, but not before his timer reset for 5 mins w/o a pet.

By time the last BST was standing both raptors were below 20% with the one almost dead. I think if we had some way to bind (blm maybe) the raptor we would have succeeded.

Hope this helps.
Really hard.....
# Dec 11 2005 at 11:56 PM Rating: Decent

DRG/WHM (me) , PLD/WAR ( Japion), WHM/BLM ( Dylon)

Took so damn long for things to stick i used cheifkabobs... some yag drinks and an icarus wing..
I was spamming dia to keep PLD alive seemed like things were working out.. ( more or less) but once we got paralyzed it was all over. it was down to about 1/2 its health... WHM soon ran outa MP i was the last 1 standing.. I knew it was feudal for me to fight so i dismissed my wyvern.. tried super jumping but to no prevail got my *** handed to me on a silver platter... Just wanted spiked gauntlets and some easy cash -_-

Why do these have to be incredibly hard...

gah what a waste of 50 seals ><

It had incredibly high evasion too here was my gear..

Weapon: Mythril lance
Head: Walkures Mask
Body: Brigadin
Hands: Battle Gloves
Legs: Iron Cuisis
Feet: Volans Greaves
Rings: Snipers
Earings: Beetle +1
Belt: Life Belt

Neck: Spike Necklace

Worst fight ever -_-
A Failed Run
# Dec 05 2005 at 9:49 AM Rating: Decent
Hello all,

I tried this BCNM with two of my good friends last night. Our setup was PLD, DRK, and BLM (me). Paladin used Tavnazian Taco, Dark Knight used Sole Sushi, and I used Melon Pie +1.

We tried the fight twice and failed twice. I would use elemental seal and sleep II one of the raptors and then we would focus on the other one. The problem was that the slept raptor didn't sleep long enough. When it woke up death usually followed in a manner of seconds.

This BCNM is insanely difficult but I believe it is possible if you have the Paladin use invincible while the black mage/red mage uses their two hour on the first raptor. As long as you can kill it quickly enough, then the second one should not be a huge problem.

Good luck to anyone who attempts this. I can now see why there has only been one Spiked Finger Gauntlet sold ever on Asura.

I would really like to read a post on here from someone who has actually done this, not theories from random people. I tried 3 times tonight as rng/nin/rdm. first time wiped, seccond time barely lost, nin got paralyzed and rdm had blm sub. third we tried whm sub but slee just wouldnt stick and we lost again. O

ur best run, we killed the first just as the slept one woke, but it walked through the rdm too fast for words to describe. If not for paralyze we might have stood a better chance but again, he was rdm/blm.

I want to say this setup works, but its all balanced on just how lucky you are, mainly on the sleeps. I think it can be done, just really really risky.

One other thing, we chose nin so they could nuke while it ran, no good. moldavites and capped ninjitsu and the nuked sucked. Rather she started focusing on throwing on our "good" run, that was so much more effective. Ca anyone confirm just how well slep bolts stick to them? better than the spell? might try focusing on sleep and let the rdm nuke away with the nin. rdm was landing water2 for 100+ dmg every cast, my bullets did the same dmg so perhaps thats best...
# Oct 25 2005 at 11:10 AM Rating: Decent
Well it looks like this BCNM is well worth the effort to me since it drops those super $$$ spiked finger gaunlets. I was wondering if anyone knew a good setup that involved a DRK to take these two guys out? (^.^)b

um, considering DRK can't even equip spiked finger gauntlets, why would you care?
# Mar 12 2006 at 5:28 PM Rating: Excellent
Um... maybe he wants to sell them and make some money?
# Sep 08 2005 at 9:04 AM Rating: Decent
Zandaman Scholar i wouldnt HopE TO do that The Whm wiLL gEt owneD he will HAve to much Hate and will have TO use TWo hour By the Way if both pld Use invincible the Bcnm becomes pointless cause you have to wait 6 hrs in all to finish it... Rdm/blm is better if he has alot of mp gear ^^
and he can assist combat But Thf or Rng with Rng Acc is A must! rng must always sleep the second raptor or else youll end up failing!
2 blms?
# Sep 07 2005 at 4:47 PM Rating: Decent
Maybe someone should try a Pal/Blm/Blm pt. Thus, two elemental s.+Sleep II and no worrying about missed physical attacks and a Blm can help Pal heal
I wanna play!!!
# Sep 02 2005 at 9:05 AM Rating: Decent
Ok I am a warrior and was wondering if there is any party setup that i could be a part of for this BCNM cause I really...really...really want those spiked finger gauntlets. Any suggestions?
2 plds and a whm?

ok thanks for the pld/rng/rdm strat. ill give that a shot when i have enough seals. also could maybe 2 plds and a whm do this - a pld takes a raptor each and the whm guzzles yag drinks and heals?
# Aug 26 2005 at 8:40 AM Rating: Default
OK Pld tank is needeed you can.. uses ninja but party might end up failing or dying... @ the start of battle Rng/ or thf/ should use sleep bolts on one of the raptors then Rdm/ rdm is always better because of convert and refresh but his attacks arent the best but he can still carry a few hits if he has leveled his swords skill him and pld go on the raptor that isnt sleeped and fight him ranger can random a few shots but his main preoccupation is to sleep the other raptor if you dont then your all dead if it gets to shaky pld can use invincible to pull hate from rdm... but rdm is to be considered on this bcnm if you dont wanna spend too much money on drinks and food (rdm/nin) would be even better

nah BST can charm the bats in Wings of Fury
im willing to bet BST is the job to have for this BCNM

ve been told that no NM can be charmed. this is why a bunch of people use charm to grab LL or VE aggro quickly. i'm not posative though, could be wrong : P
Has anyone beat this on these forums?

I believe a trio of BSTs could do this. CourierCarrie is not to be underestimated.

The best thing about Jug Pets, is the fact that YOU aren't taking the damage directly, the pet is, so it gives you a chance to be elsewhere. It's basically tanking without really tanking. That, and Carrie is a decent DD. I believe it can be done...But I don't know enough 50+ BSTs on my server to give it a try.

Damn shame too. I want the Gauntlets. ; ;
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

We just tried this bcnm and it would be very easy if the Raptors would not run around in a circle after taking some damage. We went with a ninja, black mage, and dragoon. I would recommend taking a black mage for sure and having him Elemental Seal + Sleep II on the 1st Raptor and killing the second one ASAP. You have to stay in the middle, because the raptor tends to run around in a circle and cannot be attacked by physical attacks. Also, if the Raptor that was slept wakes up.....then you should get out while you can if the other is not dead. It is very hard to sleep the Raptor again, so if you do not have the Raptor close to dead then I recommend getting out while you can. If ou have a paladin then you still might have a chance if he does Invincible to take all hate until the 1st Raptor is dead or blm sleeps the other Raptor again. We went in not knowing that the Raptor would run around in circles, so we ended up dead. Hopefully with this information you guys will do better.

I can't tell you if they can be charmed, but they have high Sleep resistence and tend to wake up really angry. They also like to run in this gigantic circle whenever they're about to use a WS, which wastes a lot of time that the other one should be sleeping. My setup was PLD, DRG, RDM, and there is no way we could have possibly won.

Gravity stuck, but was not very effective. Sleep 2 took several tries to land. When the second raptor woke up, it double attacked our mage for ~250 each time, then hit our PLD for about 150 per hit, then me for 200 a hit. On our first try, I made all my hits, but the second time it had ridiculous evasion. I cannot think of a way to beat this BCNM with any party setup, but please someone tell me I'm wrong.
