I am attempting an Aht Mission that involves me to go into an Assault, and I have to fight 9 Lamia who are guarding the female PUP NPC. Wiki it up It seems I can summon carby run, cast Levi blood pact 3x and kill a Lamia.
My problem, the poison is POWERFUL, and even leaving it around for a few ticks until I can get hate controlled and get out of any casting hate range, it hurts. If Levi misses a hit she hits me and since I'm a SMN I'm not known for my amazing defense. Also there's a matter of MP, I'm a hume, but I have my MP merits and use MP food. With the MP I need I've gotten the time limit exceeded.
I use food, drinks, fully buff before I start to find them. I sub WHM for Na's if needed and of course buffs. If anyone has any exp in this and can add some pointers please do. The mission is called, I believe Shades of Vengance.
My second question refers to WoTG missions.
First is the fight near Jeuno, A Nation on the Brink where you get the 3 NPC's and they're soldiers and they roam about and kill until you get to an Orc NM. I have a friend who I am helping and he only has SMN and SAM, well from what I've learned in this is that anything that can perform multiple tasks..DD/Heal/Buff is much better off.
My question is if anyone has done this fight on SMN, and to double check that SMN pt buffs work on NPC's. I'll be going SCH but our strategy is going to be send a DD and healer with each NPC, since we'll have the man power. I'd feel much more comfortable if he was SMN incase my SCH runs near low on MP or if I need help curing multiples and JA's aren't up yet. I know my Accession / Protect works on the NPC's, but I'm wanting to make sure that a SMN's Earthen Ward / Healing Ruby 2 will work too.
Finally, the Windy quest after that is where you go to the Fort (S) and click on a door and Demons and Eyes pop out and you kill, if anyone has any exp with this as their SMN it would be helpful too, if not I'll just take him as his SAM.
