Charybdis soloable by SMN80+?Follow

I'm wondering if anyone has been able to solo Charybdis as a SMN 80-85? If so, any particular techniques or information (length of fight, which avatar, subjob, etc)?

Thanks.

I'd say it is, if you can get it to a kite area. SMN is terrible at soloing anything labeled NM straight on, unless it is quite weaker than yourself.

I soloed charyb this morning, Was minding my own working on my yama's +1. Went into the room a few time killing devil mantas. On about my 3rd time around the grotto he spawned. Dont have a need for the sword but figure it would be something to brag about. killed the manta in the room and put fenrir on it. I just would run to the far opposite side of the room buff with stoneskin and blink and wait for fenrir to die. On each recast of fenrir i would use cresant fang cast bio 2 and run. Fenrir would live just long enough for me to recast my buffs when it was needed. About 15 minutes into the fight that other manta respawned so i started kiting from about the middle of the room to the area outside the door. Did this for 37 mins till it died.

My gear was as follows.
Yama's staff -5 prep , lizard strap

Fenrir Crown, Caller's pendant, antivenom earring, bloodgem earring

yinyang robe, summoner bracers, evokers ring, conjure ring

Viator's cape, Hierach belt, Caller's spats+1 and rostrum pumps.

Nothing great there was just patients and a lil skill.

Only thing that drop was joy toy no gil or xp. Not easy but definaly possible. At the worst moment i was literally at 83 hp but i was able to get away and heal. My mistake was mid fight i summoned thunder spirit cause i got paranoid about my mp. spirit cast thunder 4 and chary was beating me good while it cast lol. T4 hit for 987 dmg. Couple of people logged in while i was fighting and they hung around hoping i would die but by this time the NM was at 11%

Eclisp bite was doing about 900- 1200 dmg each but would only move his hp about 4% or less. Cresant fang was hitting for its usuall 230-300 dmg and i had a odd spike that hit for 404 dmg. Paralyze effect was pretty potent. Had favor up the whole time so i was able to refresh 3mp/tick with fenrir out.

No EXP/gil can happen if it died while unclaimed via Bio DoT, but in such a case you also wouldn't have gotten a Joyeuse. I wonder what made that happen.

Thought that was strange too, I have heard of the sword not dropping and i was certain it 100%. but yeah no xp no gil only the sword.

I'm surprised you manage to use bio 2 without building up a dangerous level of hate over time. Then again it sounded like you did get pounded some to lose hate.

Thank you for confirming it's possible! How fortunate you just see the NM there, I've been camping it for days but it either keeps popping during sleeptime or other groups are camping it.

I got hit a lot, only came close to dying once. About 160 dmg a hit was average too but SS and blink would give fenrir enough time to hit it and get hate back. was in yellow or orange hp the whole time.
