I've just solo'd my first Lizardtrap, however, I cannot get it to work with Kegsay's recommended kiting path. Instead I circle around the 'aggro' zone. Which I seem to find easier.
However, I have noticed that I de-aggro to Flytrap when it starts casting a spell at me then I move out of range. This leads Flytrap to re-gain 10% HP by the time I claim. Which is through Dia, since waiting for pet to engange will make it 100%. =(
Here is the run down on how I do the fight. I would greatly appreciate if anyone here can further explain on how to start the kiting through the recommended path found on Kegsay's wesbiste.

Alright, I'll give a run through on how I do the fight.
1.) I summon Fenrir, assault and Eclipse bite.
2.) I run to (Distance plugin) 40.
3.) Wait for Fenrir to die. Checking at BP timer.
4.) If BP timer reusable, I summon Fenrir, if not I summon Carbuncle.
EDIT: I would like to add that, as /whm sub (no access to utsu:Ni yet) I don't feel confident in using BP all the time when it is up. Since While I run to the necessary range for Flytrap to engage BP, my pet could be dead by the time I do so. Giving me insufficient range to successfully re-summon and not get hit. This has happened a few times. Also, as a side note. I survived a Blizzaga with around 10Hp left. I believe I only had Shell at the time.
However, since I cannot make the recommended pathway to work for me, I cast Sneak in the 40 zone, which seems to gives me hate with Carbuncle out, unless I BP. (This is where I start getting de-aggro problems) This leads to Flytrap chasing me around while casting -Ga spell and Carbuncle chasing and getting hits when possible.
At this point. When Carbuncle is defeated, the Flytrap can de-aggro even when I am at *32. Does it have something to do with the aggro table? It has no target to cast its spell? Should I let it start casting with me first, before I go out of range?
If I could get a run through on how you guys do the fight, regarding Distance plugin numbers and such, it will be appreciated. I am a Galka with 1117 (max) MP - I haven't tried BP'ing it to death, which is why I cast Carbuncle if BP is down, to prevent MP loss.
I've only soloe'd Bombs and worms prior to this, which I don't de-aggro from. Critism will be greatly appreciated!
