While on that topic, would Rdm be a better solo candidate, or Blm? If I do end up going through the trouble of leveling a job just for this, I would want it to be the best option. I would love to at least try this on drg+mnk soon to test the waters, but I am on Pld AF (just got the feet and quit). Would need to finish Pld AF THEN re-start Drg AF=PITA.
But, as for the drg thing: With my Hp merits and some choice hp gear, I will have somewhere around ~1380+ HP, while the silly galka mnk will have ~1600 hp. IF the taru in the video can get by with zero def buffs (no one knows what food he used), then a Drg with 187% Def and a mnk with 125%-160% def (depending on defender use) bonus with 50%HP triggers approaching the total Hp of the taru in question, it seems quite plausble to do as a duo, and possibly solo.
The only question is if the maelstroms are powerful enough to be a problem in keeping wyvern alive (HOLY HELL a USE for wyvern feed!!!). I am thinking hundred fists is better served at the end during TP spam for just this purpose. However, since wyverns stay when entering BC (1olpup), I would thin that between spirit link and popping a second wyvern if it dies would be enough.
As a Duo meleeing, more or less, full time, i cant imagine DD being an issue.
As a side note, I always wished SE had some "trial" BC fights that didnt drop anything that you could just do the same fights. Like BCNM20s=2seals for fight, BC60s=6 seals. Trade to BC and go in. Something trivial to just try new things without throwing away all your seals. Kinda takes the motivation out of trying new things when you got all your hard earned KS/BS on the line.
