Minhocao Gorged me for 2500 DMG when I stand with 2.2k HP with Carbonara up :(
I do lack of Abyssite of Merit and didn't have any HP atma. So I'll agree with saying this could be soloable but still tough.
Another way to lower Gorge > Magic Def / reduction Gear/Atma and/or Earth Resistance since this is a magic earth based move apparently.
Not sure if you mean gorge or disgorge. Disgorge on minhacao is easily avoided because he wont turn for disgorge. He does turn on some moves, but just stay on his side/back and he will never hit with disgorge ever. Glavoid DOES turn towards the tank at all times so it doesnt work on him (/cry). I dont think gorge is earth damage as it is an HP drain move. Disgorge IS earth damage. However -mdt gear stuff has no effect on disgorge. A war buddy of mine (completed the Empy Gaxe 50x glavoid junk) has faught glav well.....a lot. But he told me yesterday that he has tried -mag damage gear sets and everythig with no effect on disgorge.
Earth resist DOES help against disgorge though. My most recent fight (did x3) I had a good whm and brd. Earth carol2/march for songs and a well geared whm barstonra. There were a number of disgorges over 3 glavoids and a few were resisted, not many, but a couple (1.5k damage etc). Also, with all the bar-earth stuff, the slowga only landed maybe half the time and stoneaga4 wasnt nearly as painful. Generally made the fight smoother overall. Over the last ~7 fights I have done, the disgorges have almost universally done 3000 damage even. My 'new' build for tanking glavoid puts me at 3800 hp. On the most recent set of 3x glav last weekend, I actually ate some ~6ish disgorges to the face and never died once. It was SO empowering xD
I got hit with a 6k one a while back when fighting in an alliance. I have never been hit for 6k when i was solo or duo tanking. I really thing it has something to do with either the number of people healed via gorge, or (a theory my war friend has) its a bastardized aflatus solice>Holy where the amount of HP glav heals (phy when he TPs, Magic when he casts and maybe gorge and bloodweapon) will make disgorge damage go up. Either way, the fewer people on it/hurting it the better.
The barspells/carols are nice, but not anything remotely reliable for disgorge, but toss in the slowga/stonega spam and the more resist, the better anyway. The only way to survive disgorge regularly I have found is:
*Have 2 tanks in case one eats it (also makes hate reset under 50% when it bloodweapons a non-issue so reccomended anyway)
*Have enough HP to survive 3k disgorge (normal amount) and a stray hit after that while getting shadows back up(i have 3800 now when i fight him now and havent died to disgorge since)
Another 'theory' from war friend that seems logical is that disgorge might be breath damage and thus, -breath damage taken gear/atmas might be the way to go since -mag damage taken doesnt do jack. But I havent tested it yet. So far, high HP 2x tanks is what i have found to work and im sticking with that for now.
In case people are wondering what im doing for HP:
5/6 Merit abyssites
8/8 HP merits
Atma: RR, 2x HP superior atmas (Impreg. Tower, ebon hoof)
Full time HP gear: Rings-Meridian/BQueen ring. Back-Gigant mantle. Earrings-Bloodgem/Suppa. I just remove all my back/rings/earrings besides those into satchel instead of making new macros :P
Hope this is useful to someone xD
