Exuviation today! And got it with a duo no less. =)
My 75 RDM friend and I decided to go after some Wamouras, and we learned that they're actually pretty easy!
Camp: We went to Mount Zhayolm, but there were blm's killing the wamoura princes at camp A and B so no wamouras were up. We ended up camping at the C camp, on the west side of the map. At first, we tried camping at C-7 because there were 3 wamoura there, but the princes kept getting in the way. There is a nice camp at the upper right part of C-6, next to the water. Nothing aggros there and you can pull the wamoura to the southeast and another one to the east.
Spells: Set both dispel spells, Frost Breath, sleep spells, magic fruit, and HP+ spells.
Also, I went /whm. At lvl 66 BLU/WHM I did not pull hate from the rdm, and I could still cast Erase and Stoneskin.
Fight: Like Magic Hammer, sleep/nuke the mob! Because they were lvls 80-82, my rdm friend used blizzard 3 only. You can help nuke too, with Frost Breath. Set a time to nuke, and start casting frost breath a vana-minute before that, because it has a longer cast time than blizzard. The wamouras resisted nukes sometimes, but if unresisted my frost breath (with taru HP) did 535 damage. Blizzard 3 did 525 damage. After that, sleep 2 it. The RDM can aspir it, which I recommend. ES + sleepga would steal about 100 MP.
Each Blizzard III and Frost Breath would give it 10% TP. Be sure to keep track of how much tp it has. If you know it'll get 100% TP or more, keep stoneskin and barfira up.
The weird thing was, the wamoura only did 3 different WS. These were Erosion Dust, Exuviation, and Erratic Flutter. It seemed to use Erosion Dust about 50% of the time, and Exuviation the other 50%. It only used Erratic Flutter twice. I'm guessing it didn't use the other 2 WS because we weren't in range. ^^. Note: the wamoura used Exuviation and cured 0 HP once. I don't think it has to have an enfeeb on it to use it, but we had para on it anyways. Just in case.
Back to the fight. If it didn't use Exuviation and had more than 25% HP, we'd keep sleep/nuking it. Once the wamoura reaches 25% or less, the RDM would gravity it. Then I'd Banish/Banish II/Banishga and my friend would cast stone/water. Each of these gives it 10% TP, so do this till it has 80 or 90% TP while the RDM runs around. Sleep it, buff, banish/stone it, and hope it uses Exuviation.
We only fought 7 Wamoura. Only the 1st wamoura didn't use exuviation, because we didn't feed it tp. After that we'd do the above strategy and it wouldn't take long for it to use Exuviation.
Anyways, hope this helps some future BLU's. You don't need an entire alliance of blu's to kill wamouras, like I previously thought, hehe. Good luck!
