Summoner vs Turul (duo)Follow

Two nights ago my ls went and built time in Abyssea - Konschtat for farming NMs/key items later on. After we farmed ourselves roughly 4 Eccentric Eve pops everyone started going to sleep etc. Myself and another SMN in ls still had 200+ min. and stayed around for awhile to kill a few Bakkas. Then we randomly decided to throw ourselves at Turul.(We were expecting to die)And surprisingly our Heavenly Strikes (fully merited/Atma of Beyond/Minikin Monstrosity)were doing 1.1-1.3k to Turul per SMN.
We held Turul at Conflux 7 (i think) and kept throwing Shiva's at it. Pretty basic strategy and roughly 30-40 min. later we had it dead.

We were surprised that it was that simple, when, in most cases, it takes at least 2 parties~ to kill. Even a single party if the players are experienced enough.

Don't forget SS and blink! RR items too in case things get rough :P And Good luck!
OH btw Turul dropped Nierenschutz and Loki's Kaftan. :D

Very nice. Just a heads-up though, Garuda's Predator Claws demolishes this NM. A Razed Ruins/Stout Arm Predator Claws can get 2500+ damage, so I imagine if you JUST used Razed Ruins (since you probably need Minikin Refresh for duoing), you can still get to 2000. If the mob moves too much while duoing for consistent Predator Claws, you can probably get 1 SMN to do Heavenly Strike and once the mob is firmly planted hitting Shiva, the other SMN can throw Garuda at it.

Loki's Kaftans for your THF/RNG friends!

Of course, I'd rather solo Ovni, but that sounds like it is more for people who have fast casting attacks.

Do you think it would be faster if you toss more pets ? Or TP would be an issue ?

You're very right in saying predator claws hits harder, however I suggest against it in a lowman scenario. Turul uses that wind wall move that does knockback for a certain radius around it. I'm almost positive that you cannot get predator claws off because Garuda won't be able to get close enough. Since heavenly strike is ranged, shiva isn't affected by it. If turul is chasing you down while wind wall is up and you can't get your BP off to pull hate then you're pretty much SOL.

And yes throwing more pets would speed up the process, I wouldn't worry too much about feeding it tp, because you should always stay out of range anyways. As long as you are at a safe distance you should be just fine.

Garuda can get off a Pred Claws while amphipteres are doing their wall thingy. I've tried this with Zirnitra. It actually looks quite funny. Garuda keeps inching in and getting blown back, and you can hear that blowback noise. When you hit BP though, she will actually connect the hit.
