when he runs off, don't follow.. Just wait for him to return.
This used to work, but the last most recent time I've tried to fight him, we had issues with him running off and deaggroing, so he never actually came back. Does this really still work?
I guess it's possible, but it didn't happen the few times I've done it. The last time I solo'd Cheese Hoarder was maybe a month-ish ago, so it wasn't that long.
And I'm sure you can /Rdm; but because zeni farming is annoying to me, and since he does hit hard and can Triple Attack, I'd usually /Nin just for safety. I remember one time, since it's such a long fight and I was sleepy, I ran farther SE than I should've, and Utsusemi allowed me to turn around at a dead end and keep going fine.
But yeah, from what I've experianced, you don't "need" /Rdm to put a DoT on him. Would Dokumori: Ichi from /Nin work? I doubt it, could try though.
Even when I was with a large ZNM group we just stayed put while he ran, until he returned. Edited, May 18th 2009 7:17am by Carrilei
