If you have any close friends who don't mind lending you uber gear then by all means borrow away.

went in as: 75mnk/1blm

Eat carbonara+1
boost 9-10 times
/attack <t>
focus dodge hundred fists
-run in
chi blast = 400ish
when hundred fists wore off DK @ ~250%


beatdown and hope you outlive him
I won with 56 hp remaining, got really lucky with 3 or 4 counters very early and dodge a few punches. no potions(macro didn't work) no chakra...luck finally worked in my favor.

1/1 on the old man

Im gearing up for my fight now. This thread has given me lots to think about.
A quick question do you lose XP for dying to the old man? I was thinking of just going in and giving him a go to size up his accuracy evasion so i knew what to expect.

Maat = no subjob.

Subjob = required for latent items to work.

Ergo, Subjob latent items no worky.

Have you tried it? From what i can tell your subjob gets set to 0 but you still technically have it.

i was thinking the bard earring that gives +5 evasion. 20k for +5 evasion seems beter than 180 for +3 (dodge earring)

Oh, EARRINGS...My bad, I missed that.

Well, one easy way to check is to put on something like a Genin earring, or another earring that provides a tangible bonus (i.e. AGI+4), then go into a subjob-less BC with the proper sub and see if you have the bonus.

Wanted to add extremly helpfull and very recommended for your item macros' instead of spaming just repet
/item "Icarus Wing" <me>
do that on all the lines you have for that macro. I did this with the Wing and Elixir and neither of them went off right away took till the 3rd line before it kicked in. Usefull so you don't accidentaly hit the wrong macro while spaming.

I beat Maat tonight. I want to thank a lot of people in this thread as they made this battle a whole lot less stressful for me. I barely lost to him last night but I pwned him tonight.

Items:
Carbonara
Vile Elixir
Vile Elixir +1
Icarus Wing
Hi-Potion x2
Periskos Au Lait
Sleeping Potion x4

Equip:
Feral Fangs
Tiger Mask
Drone/Dodge Earring
Sun Ring x2
Temple Gloves, Gaiters and Cyclas
Spike Necklace
Brown Belt
Amemit Mantle +1

Extras:
Opo necklace
Justice Badge
Blink band


Strat:

Entered naked, ate carbonara and equipped everything excluding Tiger mask and Spike necklace. Had blink band and Opo necklace. Slept to 25tp, used blink, put on my mask and used the au lait to regen my health to full. Used the remaining 3 sleeping pots to get to 100tp.

Stood out of attack range from Maat, engaged facing backwards. Boosted 5 times, popped Focus, Dodge and Counterstance (in one macro) and Chi Blast and Hundred Fists (in another aswell as swapping in Spike Necklace after Chi). RF for 450ish, as I hit 60tp he used Hundred Fists, once at 100TP I hit another RF for 450-500 and he went down as I spammed my I-Wing macro.

I'd give exact numbers but fraps would NOT work, I tried closing and reopening it but it crashed FFXI. So now I have no physical proof of my demolition of Maat aswell as beating the record by 40-50 seconds. My time was ~4mins and 50 seconds. (Nothing too grand I imagine but hey, I beat the record on my server :p)

I did the exact same procedure yesterday only I didn't use Counterstance and I panicked when he used Hundred Fists. I'd already gotten off 2 RF's at this point but decided rather than using I-Wing for another RF to use my Vile Elixir, it did no good as he killed me a second or two later.

My personal advice to would-be Maat Mashers is to listen to everything you've seen in this thread, create your gameplan and stick to it. Maat WILL use Hundred Fists, it's only natural to panic but you need to keep your cool and stick to your guns.

I walked away with 949/1708hp, never used any of my potions or elixirs and never used Chakra either. Time to resell them and make back some money.

Tried all above including blink band, memento muffler , opo opo necklace, you name I done it. After being pretty hard killed 5 times in a row I concluded that Maat doesn't adjust his stats to my race ( taru taru ). I've won the fight for a friend on galka with the same strategie I used on taru the first time :(

I got my whm out ( lvl 66 ) only af no belt or mantle and won from the old geezer 1st try, costs 2 yag drinks I synthed myself.
I don't wanna redicule this thread but I'm kinda mad that the difference between races is so huge. I found maat on galka in af unbelievable easy in comparison to maat on taru in completely pimped out gear , food and meds.

I was initially ashamed that I wasn't able to beat him on taru mnk my great love. But seeing how easy it was on galka as mnk and taru as whm I can only conclude that with taru mnk you have such a huge disadvantage that its close to impossible to win. I could have tried more but at 600-700K a run on food, meds and stuff I decided to do it this way.

My respect for all that won on mnk, especially taru's. Good luck on your run(s). The strategy's posted here are all solid and will get you through.

I am pretty sure Maat copies your stats, though it has yet to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. The first time I fought him I put on food before I went in by mistake and he seemed to take alot less dmg from my punches.

I fought him 4 times with my mithra mnk, the first 3 times I thought he was impossible but the 4th I totally smacked him down. He did a grand total of 230 dmg to me and I finished with 1450 hp. So I think luck plays a major role in the fight.

All 4 times my strategy was essentially the same.
- Go in, eat food and pop an au lait
- Sleep to 200 tp (My last run I was getting nervous and went at 150)
- Activate blink band and boost 3-4 times
- Swap in all my melee gear and activate dodge focus and hundred fists.
- Chi blast for 100-200 dmg
- Raging fists, wing, Raging fists

A few things I did learn from my failures though.

1. Avoid doing too much dmg off the bat, or maat WILL pop hundred fists early. I used raging fists > wing > raging fists at the very start of the fight and he totally whooped me. Definitely save it till he uses Hundred fists.

2. Item macros have a habit of not working when you need them. As somebody else suggested, put /item "Vile elixer etc" <me> in every line of the macro.

3. The time limit allows for alot of preparation, so take your time, double check everything again while your in the BC to help calm your nerves.

4. If you have meds use them asap, because once he pops Hundred fists the 1-3 seconds to pop an elixer or potion is going to leave you open to a few hits.

5. Macro everything! And keep your hands on the macros the entire time. This fight goes by so fast you simply don't have time to navigate any menus.

This Saturday, I asked my LS to help me camp Cactaur Cantour as a bday present, they did, 1/1 on the Kung Fu Shoes, xp'd in them for 5hrs & hit 68 & had them crafted in to Wulong Shoes by my friend Japes. Then I tried Maat w/o having lvl 68 HTH & EVA capped. That wasn't the problem. ><

After writing my tactics down on paper (thank you Mightymog!) I made macros for everything. I didn't test them & put Chi-Blast before Blink Band macro ><. Only got in 5/10 boosts, too. Maat pwned me (I never use that word, but in this case it fits) in 30 sec as I was trying to figure out how to fix my headgear situation.

So I asked for LS help in getting another testy last night, got it in 30 min, rewrote macros - added in Counterstance JA & started off in Full AF + Guarding Collar & Guarding Earring (and Carbonara) for total HP 1760ish. Then I went & did solo ENM 60 using my maat macros to make sure they worked, beat that, waited 2hrs & went to see Maat:

Starting Gear:
Main: TM Hooks +2
Ammo: Happy Egg
Neck: Guarding Torque
Head: Temple Crown
Body: Temple Cyclas
Legs: Temple Hose
Feet: Temple Boots
Ring1: Woodsman Ring
Ring2: Puissance Ring
Back: Ammet Mantle
Waist: Brown Belt
Ear1: Guarding Earring
Ear2: Coral Earring

Food:
/item Carbonara <me>
/echo Equip Full AF
/echo Equip Happy Egg

/Equip Main "Gelong Staff"
/heal

/Equip Main "TM Hooks +2"
stand up

Buffs:
Boost X10 (I used 3 macros)
/Equip Hands "Temple Gloves"
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 15 (Don't leave a space after the 15, it'll break the macro.)
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 15
/ja "Boost" <me>
Repeat above on another button
last boost button
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 15
/ja "Boost" <me>

/ja "Counterstance" <me>
/wait 1
/ja "Focus" <me>
/wait 1
ja "Dodge" <me>

/Equip Head "Blink Band"
/echo Wait 30!
/echo Activate Blink Band Manually!

/echo Number One.. Engage! (Actually, I hit F8 on keyboard & then Attack button while boosting so I made sure I was already engaged; I stood at edge of BCNM where ramp slopes towards Maat while buffing)

/ja "Chi-Blast" <t>

/Equip Hands "Ochiudo's Kote"
/wait 1
/ja "Hundred Fists" <me>

At this point I used my Chakra macro during 100 Fists & switched to all DD gear after Chakra for 282. I think I used 3 hipots, not sure they actually fired from my macro /item Hi-Potion <me>, as I bought so many I forgot how many I had to start & the battle spam didn't indicate that I used them.

DD Gear:
Main: TM Hooks +2
Ammo: Happy Egg
Neck: Spike Necklace
Head: Super Ribbon
Body: Temple Cyclas
Legs: Repbulic Subligar
Feet: Wulong Shoes
Ring1: Woodsman Ring
Ring2: Puissance Ring
Back: Ammet Mantle
Waist: Brown Belt
Ear1: Coral Earring
Ear2: Coral Earring

I never even Raging Fisted him. He didn't Hundred Fists. He did Howling Fist, I think, in the start. I countered him 9 times, he countered me once. Thanks to the Blink Band's 3 shadows, Maat only hit me 6 times. I never used my Icarus Wing. I ended the fight with 625 HP and was shaking like a leaf.

I had made the following macros & didn't use:
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 1
/ws "Raging Fists" <t>

/item "Icarus Wing" <me>

/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 1
/ws "Raging Fists" <t>

/em pours <t> a frothy beverage! Cheers!

I started my macros on the L1 row, went Left to Right.
I switched to R1 row, went Left to Right, starting with Hundred Fists macro so that I only had to deal with 2 rows of macros & they were all in order so I wouldn't mess up like I did the first time.

I mashed Maat at 68 last night. The key were Stun Jamadhars, mentioned in this thread only once. If you're reading this and can't find a way to kill the old man, try them out. They're cheap, 30k-ish, and very, very effective. I'm certain I would have won at 67 as well, and wish I'd had the stones to try it. The following is what I posted to my Linkshell's board:

Weapon: Stun Jamadhars
Ammo: Happy Egg
Head: Blink Band, then switch to Temple Crown
Body: AF (Scorp Harness if you have it)
Hands, Legs, Feet: AF
Rings: Mind rings for Chi Blast, Str rings for the fight
Earrings: One Guard Earring (lvl 35 +3 guard), One merman's (lvl 63, +6 attk, -4 eva). Dodge or elusive earrings, or the +Counter earring from 60 ENM "Pulling the Strings", or Vics or Minuet earrings also work
Belt: Brown
Back: Amemet +1 (NQ is fine if you're not uber)
Neck: Opo-opo for sleeping TP, Justice Badge for Chi Blast, Guarding Collar (+7 Guard) for the fight

Food: Carbonara
Meds: 2x Hi-Potion +3, 1 Icarus Wing, 4 sleep pots

Day: Darksday (This is important!)

#1 - Zone in naked, put on your gear, then eat the Carbonara. Pop your hi-pots to fill up HP.

#2 - Equip Monkey necklace and pop a sleep potion. This will bring you to 25% TP. Do them one after another for 100%

#3 - Equip Blink band run to the arena. Once there, use the band.

#4 - Start your Boost Cycle. Move close enough to Maat to engage and Chi Blast, but make sure you don't hit him til you're ready.

Alt-1:
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 15
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 13
/echo Initiate Alt-2

Alt-2:

Alt-5:

/wait 15
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 13
/ja "Dodge" <me>
/echo Initiate Alt-6

Alt-6:
/ja "Boost" <me>
/wait 2
/ja "Hundred Fists" <me>
/equip ring1 "Saintly Ring"
/equip ring2 "Saintly Ring"
/equip neck "Justice Badge"

Alt-7:
/ja "Chi Blast" <t>
/wait 2
/equip ring1 "Victory Ring"
/equip ring2 "Victory Ring"
/equip neck "Guarding Torque"
/echo Initiate Ctrl-1

#5 - Ok, so at this point you're fighting, and if you're lucky your Chi Blast did ~500 dmg (mine did 508). Maat comes right at you hitting fast and hard - his punches did about 2x as much dmg as mine, so the goal is to end the fight ASAP.

Ctrl-1:
/ws "Raging Fists" <t>
/wait 3
/item "Icarus Wing" <me>
/wait 4
/ws "Raging Fists" <t>

Ok, you've already got Hundred Fists up so you're pounding on him for 45-60 a fist (if you're Galka), and lucky you! His first three hits get absorbed by your blink band (actually, his third hit was a counter that my band absorbed, but w/e). You click that ctrl-1 Macro, and Raging Fists should do about 400 dmg on him. My first did 385, my second did 424.

Now he's pissed, and he uses Hundred Fists on you. And that's bad news, because 1) he hits real hard, 2) he hits real fast, and 3) you're not going to dodge or counter many of them at 68. Which brings us to...

Darksday!

Since I was but a little Galka I'd been planning on using Stun Jamadhars on this guy, but it's our own cyber-hero Maasahn who actually pioneered the technique. He/she/it is the first Monk I know who used them to beat Maat and confirm their usefulness. I just refined it.

Here's why they're useful: When Maat's stunned, he can't punch you in the face.

Here's why Darksday is useful: Stun lasts longer on Darksday. The longer he's stunned, the less time he spends hitting you.

The Stun Jamadhars don't have a great proc rate - I'd guess 3% - but they're pretty much guaranteed to go off at least once during the span of your Hundred Fists. Mine went off right after he used Hundred Fists, giving me 10 consecutive hits on him before he came unstunned. By the time he did he was almost dead and I had 100% tp. I didn't even get to mash my Raging Fists macro before he gave up. If I had, I'd have killed the old bastard and no one would ever have had to fight him again, but oh well.

I finished the fight with 130% tp, 946 HP, and one unused Chakra. He only took 12 swings at me: 7 landed flush, one was guarded for half-damage, one I dodged, two were eaten by the blink band (the third shadow was countered down), and one I countered on to him. Stun proc'd once, he dodged one of my attacks and countered one.

And my only regret is that I didn't try this at lvl 67 instead of 68.

I beat Maat tonight.

The first trip into the battle zone i forgot to bring a wing with me and i never actually activated my blink band.

For the second trip into the battle zone i printed out a list to help me remember everything.

My equipment was basically full af except pants where I used the level 50 +2 counter pants and feet where I used my wulongs (although I had AF on when I hit my ja macro)

In addition I used 2x avenger earrings, and my 2 woodsman’s rings (wanted the +acc for counter, but these were the only pieces I had on with –eva).

My weapon was my TM+2s

1. Entered the seal with everything unequipped.
2. Put on all AF except head and neck where I equipped my opo-opo necklace and my blink band and TM+2s
3. Ate Carbonara +1
4. used 2 x-potions to get to full health
5. Slept to 100tp (4x sleeping potions)
6. Equipped chiv chain in my neck slot and ran up to the battle area.
7. Targeted Maat and pulled my weapon.
8. Boosted 6 times
9. Hit Dodge, focus, hundred fists
10. Hit my equipment change macro to swap my kick boots back into place, this macro also had counterstance at the end of it since it wouldn't fit in the first /ja macro.
11. Ran into Chi Blast range and hit him for a mid 200 Chi Blast.
12. Used raging fists as soon as I could spam the macro (note there was no boost in the macro) and then continued to fight him until he used his 2hr.
13. When he used his 2hr I used my tp wing, and then raging fists again.
14. He gave up.


Everything happened extremely fast. Hundred fists didn’t even wear off until well after he had given up.

My first raging fists hit him for around 350 and the 2nd one hit him for 440ish.

He hit me once for like 230 and countered me once for 174.

I countered him 6 times. I am going to stress that again. He hit me 2 times in the whole fight. One of them was a counter of my own hit, and I countered him 6 times.

I had a vile elixir +1 ready to go, but I never bothered to use it since Maat hit me a total of 2 times in the whole fight for around 400 points of damage total.

Seeing as I just managed to bag the old wrinkly dude (and in record time on Carbuncle :D ) I wanted to share my experience.

First time I fought him I died, it was over in seconds and I was surprised how quick this fight really is. I had used opo opo and took a bunch of meds but didnt have a chance to get any of these meds off in time.

Second time round I nailed him good and proper.
I didnt use opo opo 2nd time and didnt take in any meds either. Food I used was Carbonara but in all honesty the fight was that quick I doubt it had much of an effect on the outcome of the battle.

So here goes.

Went in made sure hp was at max.
Boosted 8-9 times
Fired up Hundred fists and used Focus + Counter
Chi blasted to engage
Hundred fists was there from the off and I pounded away until TP hit 100%
Fired raging fists
His health had dropped to what roughly looked like about 10% remaining
I didnt seem to hit him again but the fight ended and I was given my warp scroll to return home
I finished the battle with about 2/3 hp (he only got about 2, maybe 3 hits on me)

For the record I didnt use any special equipment, my gear is pretty average as follows.

AF head body and gloves
Tac Mags +1
Chivalrous Chain
2x Spike Earrings
2x Puissance Rings
Brown Belt
Akido Kosh*ta
Wulong Shoes
Tiphia Sting
Psilos Mantle

I am a female Elvaan
1st attempt I was lvl 69, 2nd attempt I went back at 70

Hope this helps some of you, just go all out from the off and dont use meds as they take too long to fire off and you waste time when hundred fists could be going at him.

Good luck.

Arenta

After fighting Maat a few times and losing, I finally beat him last night. And I owe it all to my level 70 Kamper Earring.

Equipment:

-Cross-Counters
-Optical Hat
-AF Body, Hands, Legs and Feet
-Amemit Mantle +1
-Kampfer Earring/Merman's Earring
-Sniper Ring/Sun Ring
-Brown Belt
-Chivalrous Chain
-Opo-opo Necklace

For the fight, I brought some items. Carbonara, Hi-Potion x4, Persikos Au Lait, Icarus Wing x1, Max-Potion x1, Sleeping Potion x5.

I went in naked, as that may have affected Maat. I used the Carbonara and the Hi-Potions for HP. I put on my gear and used the Sleeping Potions/Opo-opo Necklace until my TP was at 100%. I ran up to Maat and engaged him, but I kept my distance so that I wouldn't be close enough to attack him yet. I boosted four times, used Doge, Focus, and Hundred Fists and Chi Blasted him. That was followed with a Howling Fist. The fight began. He hit me twice, then used Hundred Fists when he was at half life. I Countered every single hit he gave me, then used Raging Fists to finish him.

I won and broke the record. I forgot to use the other items because I was so nervous. x_x But hey, that's extra money now that I can resell them and they're not really needed for the fight. I just brought them in case. For those of you who can't seem to beat him, hang in there. It's all about luck. I know how you feel as I almost gave up completely.

Also, for those of you who are interested, the Kamper Earring has Latent Effect: Counter +5 and it kicks in when your HP is in the yellow.

After it was all said and done, I looked over several strategies and asked many MNK players on my server and came up with my own. This is more for "how I did it" and wouldn't recommend doing it lol.

I did alot of research going into the fight and have heard many different things. The going in armorless doesn't seem to apply anymore; I went in with full armor on and still won. I was told it's just an old wive's tale now and shouldn't be taken seriously.

I didn't do my buffing until entering the BC.

-Entered BC, ate Carbonera, Peroski au Lait
-Slept for TP while HP regenerated
-Changed neck equip to Justice Badge for +12 total MND and boosted 10x
-Focus, Dodge, Hundred Fists
-Chi Blast, engage Maat
-Raging Fists when useable
-Used a Vile Elixer +1 as soon as my life was halfway
-Another Raging Fists for Maat's defeat

Gear:

All AF
Spike Earrings
Sun Rings
Opo Necklace for sleepy TP gain, Justice Badge for MND boost, Chivalrous Chain for DD
Brown Belt
Amemet Mantle
Spartan Cesti

I also want to thank everyone for the strategies here, and especially to everyone on my server who kept me motivated to beat Maat.

Finally tackled Maat as a MNK.

My first run was disastrous. I had such lag that the macros weren't firing, and I was very nervous about that, so much so, that I forgot to eat my food, Forgot my HP drink, and missed my first WS.

I had:
Cross Counters
Ohat
Chiv Chain
dodge earring
Minuet Earring (with a macro to change to Kampfer earring)
Scorp Harness
AF gloves (instead of Okote, because of the -evasion)
Sun Ring
Venerer Ring (no woodsman's because of -evasion)
AM +1
Brown Belt
Strike Subligar
Wulong Shoes (I also purchased Vampire Boots and went at night (11DEF, +10eva at night, but didn't use them after all)

I had opo necklace, but in m y rush to get the macros working got into the circle without sleeping potions (left in MH). Then in my rush, I forgot the food and HP drink (persikos au lait). I also had a 5-10 second delay between using Hundred Fists and Chi Blast (only 136), but Maat used Hundred fists as I was fumbling for Persikos au Lait. I had 78 HP left, and went for the vile elixer+1 macro, but he Asuran Fists'd me, and that was that.

The second time, I came WELL prepared. Slept to 95% TP with 4 potions. Blink Band. Boosted 6 times. Dodge, Focus, Hundred Fists, then Chi.
I chi'd for 238, and he missed me three times before the first blink band shadow was gone. I used raging fists after about 10 seconds for 634 (no boost). as soon as i did, he used hundred fists. I was tempted to use my icarus wing and hundred fists again, but I countered the first 4 hits, and then he missed twice, and I was up to 100% tp, at which point I used raging fists again for 578, and it stopped the fight, but he still had 3 hits go through after that, but I countered one, and my blink band absorbed one, and he missed the other. I still had 848 HP left, and I think my hundred fists was still going (which goes to show how fast teh fight really is). I had a vile elixer, and an icarus wing (in fact I had just used my macro for the icarus wing following my raging fists, to get the win, but it didn't register).

Compared to the first time, the second time was a cake-walk. I'd have to say that if you come well-prepared as MNK, I think you stand a good chance of getting lucky. The carbonara, persikos au lait, blink band, and icarus wing should be essential, though.

Well, I went 1/2 on the old man
We'll not talk about my first experience ; ;
(First try at lv67 did not go so well, lv68 must have helped)

Anyways, same general strat as anyone here.
Carbonara, Boost some (I went only up to 8)
Dodge, Focus, HF, Chi
Hit Chi for some 400 damage (yea I was a little shocked at that)
Then we started duking it out.
At around 40% of his HP left, he Hundred Fists me.
I was probably sitting around 1,500 HP
I got in a couple of counters, and when I noticed my Hundred Fists wear off
I immediately Raging Fist'd him.
About 3 seconds after that, he gave in with me sitting around 400 hp.
So as you can tell, once Maat Hundred Fists, it's time to do him in ASAP!

I had brought an I.wing and Vile elixir +1 just in case (I was actually spamming my Elixir [mispelt Elixer, hence spam] macro as I finished him). Still had Chakra to use as well.

Gear - AF besides E.pin and Wulongs.
Dodge earrings, Puissance ring x2
Brown belt and Amemet mantle +1
Feral Fangs for weapons and Bibiki Seashell in the ammo.
Had I had a SH, I probably would have worn that for the +EVA.
Skipped O.kote and Spike Earrings for the -EVA.

He's not all that evasive, pack on the STR and ATK where you can do it with out hurting your EVA or DEF horribly (hi2u republigar).

3 minutes 1 second, new record :)

P.S. I wouldn't advise Counterstance unless you have at -least- the ENM60 solo earring for +5 Counter. Had I gone the counter route, I'd probably have wanted X-Counter's, lvl50 JSE ring etc. and forgotten all +EVA.

First off, thanks to this thread and the information in it I was able to beat Maat today on my first try.

Basically, my strategy was hit hard and fast, like monks should I suppose. Ate my carbonara +1 first off, then I slept to 100 tp, boosted 6 times, blink band, boosted 2 more times. I hit chi blast for 385, and raging fists for 458, hundred fists, raging fists at 100tp again for 370. I hit my macro for icarus wing but he had given up.

Interesting stats:

me: 24 punches connected, 1 miss, 1 countered for 2739 dmg
maat: 10 punches connected, 3 shadows, 5(!!) misses and 2 countered for 1195 dmg

my take: blink band and stun jams were the key here. I ended with about 400 hp left, however I hadn't used any potions of any sort yet. I figured all I needed was one stun and that's what I got.

my equipment was basically af, scorpion harness, dodge earrings, woodsman, sun rings. For him to miss 5 out of 20 times, I think the +eva was a key as well.

The downside to this strategy is he uses hundred fists fairly quickly so you have to take him down quickly. I had one more raging fists I could have used. After that, it would have been over one way or the other.

You need a bit of luck too. He wasn't able to use a single weapon skill on me or else it would have been over, I believe.

Well I Owned Maat last night surprised me. The first 2 times i went and fought him i was 66. the first time i got him down to 31% of his HP but i forgot to focus and dodge which is why i missed him about 7-10 during the battle. The second time i fought him i got him down to 22% HP but he crit me 5 times for 250+ each so that pretty much sums up that battle.

I had the same setup everyone else stated but i had SH on and during the fight i forgot to change the Promise badge i had on for my Chiv Chain. I countered him once but my Chi Blast was for 449 which really surpried me there.

From the minute i engaged him with Chi and finished him was 30 seconds later i ended with almost 700 but had hit my vile +1 macro before i realized he was dead

I was 69 when i owned him and can say it was quite fun.

HP 683/1737

Thank you for this post. I made my strategie out of this and it worked (at least on my second try ;-)

Got in naked
Equipped CCs, Opo-Opo Necklace
Used Sleeping Potions x4 to get to 100 TP
Equipped Blink Band and Mnd Gear (Promise Badge, Twinthread Obi) and rest of gear while Sleeping
Used Blink Band
Boost x1
Food Carbonara
Boost x1
Drink Persikos au Laut
Boost x5
Changed Opo-Opo Necklace and Blink Band to fighting gear while boosting

Ran to Maat while Dodge and Focus
Engaged Maat
Used 100s
Chi Blast - woot 362 Damage :D
Macro changed gear back to fighting gear

Got close to Maat and Howling Fists - nice 516 damage
at 600 hp or something like that i used chakra and immediatly after that vile elxier +1
in the meantime maat used 100s and i got 150tp
i tried to raging fists then and icarus wing and raging fists again but he gave up that moment.

Tried to do the same strategie on my first try too, but didnt boost Chi Blast and did Raging Fists (300 damage) instead of Howling Fists and didnt use Vile Elixir and Chakra fast enough. I guess you shouldnt wait till your in red colours until you use chakra and elixir. Maat is too fast. o.O

Ended the Fight with 605/1540 HP.
Good Luck on your Fight.

I fought Maat 3 times i'm 1/3 against him 1st i chiblasted to early. i had an exp scroll but it was still messed up because macros broke and i used a carbonara. I did get some h2h skill ups while fighting maat. Oh yea i deleveled from 70 to 69 to use the exp scroll.
Second time i forgot what happen but i was owned. blink band wore stuff like boost...
Don't use blink band immediately if your gonna boost for chi blast because it will wear even b4 getting to the fight.
Remember you have 30 minutes so you can take your time unless you wanna beat the record.

Third Fight
macroed everything and tested it all

Persikos au Lait Cooked it
Shiva's Claws fought on ice day
Sleeping Potions x4
Opo-opo Necklace
Hi-Potions+3 x2
Icarus Wing
Blink band (RDM friend used it against maat gave it to me to use against maat)
Velocity Earring (used assault points)
OKotes
sunrings
super ribbon
MNK AF set
Amenet mattle (however you spell it)
used mind gear

Entered the BCNM
Eat Taco
sleep to 100% TP
drank the au lait
boost 8x
activate blink band
Chi-blasted I had to make sure my boost didn't wear like last time.
Dodge
Focus
hundred fist
chakra when yellow
as soon as maat turned on his hundred fist
Used Shoulder tackle which stunned him.
Icarus Wing
Raging fist for SC
was spamming potions
at the end of the fight...

Hehe anyway good luck.


I beat Maat on March 3, 2:07am PST

before i start this post, i highly reccomend that you wait till you hit 70 b4 you fight maat, it makes a huge difference.

gear:
cross-counters
bibiki seashell/RSE ammo (hume)
empress hairpin/AF head/tiger mask/blink band
chivalrous chain/justice badge/ashura necklace
spike earring x2/avengers earring
Scorpion Harness/AF body
ochiudo's kote/AF gloves
garrulous + unyielding rings/aquamarine rings/kampfer ring
amemet mantle +1
strike subligar/aikido kosh*ta/AF legs/custom M slacks
brown belt/warrior's belt +1
kung fu shoes/power sandals/AF feet

went in naked, ate meat mith, put on gear & blink band and kicked maat in the cruch while wating for recast timer...

activated blink and put on hairpin, boosted 10 times. hit focus, dodge, counterstance, boosted again, hit hundred fists and chi blasted maat for a measily 350 dmg...

this is where it gets interesting... hit maat to 100% tp, raging fisted, maat dead... {huh!?}...

turns out maat missed me 8 times, countered me twice and hit me 4 times (one of which was guarded and only took 32 dmg)

I missed maat once, countered him 7 times, and raging fists hit him for 550 dmg.

so i stood outside the BCNM dazed and confused... and realised i didnt use chakra, any meds, my icarus wing and i forgot to use my regen drink xD

the reason why i recommend waiting to 70 is because maat can be anywhere between lv 66-70 from what i heard (And which i believe cos i fought him at 66 and almost won, then fought him at 67 and got flattened in no time flat), so at 70, the highest rating he can be to you is EM, and would explain why some people have a hard time on him and some dont, even at 70. guess i was just lucky :D

btw maat 2hred at about 40%

P.S. sorry for the long post ^^;

By now you all know the strategies for this fight. While all that helps the one thing that helped me the most was going into it calm, not tense or nervous. It helped me to write down the way I was going to do the fight.
Seeing how i went 1/5 on the fight doing it this way worked muce better for me.
Put on some music, have a drink, just chill and you'll do fine.
Oh yeah i whooped his ass with normal nothing, fancy gear all that just makes the fight go faster. good luck

NameAlreadyTaken, I really want to thank you so much. Your strategy was perfect. I followed it and the fight was a breeze. Even with some gear differences (due to lack of cash) I was able to beat maat the second time I fought him. The first time I went ahead and WS'd when I should have used the elixir. That one change fixed everything and he dropped literally 50% HP and died.

Thank you so much!

I used a fairly common strategy, and won on my first legitimate try. To be fair, technically my first try was an anomale. Approximately once every six months, my graphics card (I'm assuming it's the graphics card), goes haywire and everything within FFXI gets chopped up; you may see only a piece of armor, or something, and then it just freezes after about a minute. As my luck would have it, when I stepped onto the innermost pit where Maat first speaks to you, this 'glitch' struck.

There goes one testimony.

My next attempt went well enough, and would have been successful beyond any doubt, had I not made the silly mistake of NOT equipping my weapon (Hades Sainti) before using Opo-opo/Sleeping potions. This meant that when I engaged maat, and equipped my weapon, the 100 tp I'd slept for vanished. Despite this I still got him well below %50 health.

My third, and as I see it my first legitimate, attempt went smoothly. No hiccups of any kind. I had atleast 1500hp to start, and finished with over 400; anyone who's ever tried this will tell you that's pretty good, because this old bastard hits extremely hard.

Food: Carbonara - ate this after sleeping for tp, and equipping all of my gear

Drink: Persikos au Lait - used at same time as food and gear. This, like virtually all items, is pretty much worthless, because this fight is extremely fast. You will not have time to think about anything, so you'd better have a plan.

Gear: Suffice to say, as much STR, accuracy, and evasion as I could muster. My strategy was built entirely around Raging Fists, and Hundred Fists, leaving no time whatsoever for normal melee attacks.

Fight went as follows: Entered naked, ran to him so he could speak to me, equipped weapon, blink band, opo-opo necklace, took four sleeping potions, equipped all gear once I had 100tp, used blink band and then took it off, engaged, used Raging Fists, used Icarus Wing, used Raging Fists, used Hundred Fists, used Raging Fists, battle over.

I set the record on Odin, though from what I understand it's only temporary until update or whatever. I wish you all the luck you could need. One final thing: with or without a thf or /thf in pt, Monastic Cavern/Davoi holds Orcish Champions which drop MNK testimonies at an extremely high rate. I did all of my testimony hunting there.

Best of luck,

Chimera

Beat Maat today @69 (Elvaan MNK).

Items:
Carbonara +1
Vile Elixir +1
Sleeping Potions x4
Icarus Wing
Periskos Au Lait

Equip:
Feral Fangs
Wivre Mask / Blink Band
Chivalrous Chain / Opo Opo Neaklace
Coral Earring x2
Arakan Samue
Temple Gaiters
Temple Hose
Temple Gloves
Brown Belt
Amemet Mantle +1
Unyielding Ring
Phalanx Ring
Bibiki Seashell

After failing my first try because I got nervous I decided to this time keep it as simple as possible with minimal macros and equipment changes.

Entered arena naked. Equipped everything except the Wivre Mask and Chivalrous Chain (had on Blink Band/Opo Opo Neaklace).

I then ate my Carbonara and took a sleep potion to get me to 25TP. At that point I used my Blink Band, put on my Wivre Mask, ate my Periskos Au Lait, and lastly used the last 3 sleep potions to get me to 100TP. Equipped Chivalrous chain.

Ok, ready to go. I ran up to Maat (out of reach but in chi blast range) engaged, and turned away. Ran a simple macro for Focus and Dodge, Boosted 5 times manually, and then used the following macro:

/ja "Chi Blast" <t>
/wait 1
/ja "Hundred Fists" <me>

Faced Maat used Raging Fists, when I got back to 100TP I was at 65% HP so I used the Vile Elixir +1 to play it safe and then did my Raging Fists and he gave up.

Didn't need to use the Icarus Wing and seeing how it played out I could have gotten away without using the Vile Elixir +1 as well considering I was already at 100TP and he gave up right after my second WS.

Ok, whoever mentioned using the Stun Jamadhars... thank you so very much, they proced the instant Maat used his 2h, so he barely started punching again by the time I wiped him out.
