Anyone tried this duo with a WHM?

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Smok

I do not have Brother Wolf atma, but I do have Suzaku's Sune-ate that I was planning on wearing full-time. +Barfira and Shell V. I'm worried about Tebbad Wing.

RR/GH/?? I was thinking Zenith or Future Fabulous since I don't have any fire resist atma. Maybe Mounted Champion?

Should the WHM sub BRD for fire carol or /SCH for stoneskin?

I did this recently as thf + whm, which is pretty much the same. Used RR/GH/Apoc, put shellra V/barfira up and just zerged (as much as a thf zergs) it down. If you want to be a little safer, future fabulous wouldn't be a bad idea.

Tebbad wing could be an issue without collaberator. Might consider -enmity atma on the whm, and sticking to cure V's / regen, and keep blink/skin/pdt set on between cures. Tank with both on the feet, so you don't have to chase smok after a wing. -mdt set doesn't hurt, but probably not necessary. Gl!

Thanks for the great response. This gives me some confidence. I am definitely worried about the hate reset though.

We didn't get to it last night b/c it took us most of the night to get all the seals we wanted off of Nightshade. So we'll probably give it a go this weekend. I'm not too stressed about it, the pop is easy enough to get, so no big deal if we lose first attempt.

Thanks again.

No harm in getting brotherwolf atma. I used it tanking Orthrus as the 3rd atma on a few occasions instead off RR/GH/Apoc and with barfira, suzy shoes, and 1 fire carol up and needless to say, I could have had the worst whm in the game there and probably wouldn't of had a problem. Other melee's who were on Orthrus as 2nd tank or farming boxes ko'd on a couple of occasions so I'd definately consider getting the atma.

Well, yes, of course I plan on getting it eventually. My in game resources are limited, however (meaning I only really have one friend left, lol...). If I can't duo something it is very hard for me to get it done.

Eventually we will duo the KI and do a shout or join a pick-up for Brother Wolf. Pick-ups are generally not as fun for me as duo stuff though, so it is lower on the to-do list.

Idk, I left my ls 4-5weeks ago due to arguments, and havn't yet found a new one I'd like to be in. Its a too long story why I eventually left, but since I did, I worked on all my +1 armor's and some +2's aswell as kept in touch with a couple of ppl and started work on emph weapons and only play Fri-mon 2 out of every 3 weeks.

I <3 solo and duo and trio too but for some things u need to get equipped. I see lots of /sh's at wkends for amorok/orthrus runs, probably more than any other becasue its an easy route to stones and the best melee mantle in the game. Just join one with an amorok pop set handy, see how its done, then spam the /sh's yourself (for +2 body). At the end, you'll have the back piece, the +2 body and a useful atma for the task you wish to do.

It all depends on your end goals though, i didn't find trials for magian weapons fun but i did/do them. Everybody prefers to do stuff with friends, but /sh's can get the job done quicker for some things.

killed with a whm friend a couple of days ago, go for atma of the brother wolf and keep barfira always up, his nukes are just gonna crap (flare aoe did 68), reset hate just once, got it back 1 second later
it's easy when the whm isn't spamming cures on you
definitely an easy nm with the right atma/gear

Orthrus is a joke even w/o fire resist atma. Have fought with as little as WHM and NIN, and was easy as can be. AoA, RR, GH atmas. Just make sure everyone not attacking is out of AoE range. By putting a little distance between the mob and you (About 5 yalms) and having your WHM stay 20 yalms away, you should have no problem.
