I havnt played cor since the good old bird camp days, but im missing it something horrible and with things seeming to start moving away from atma fueled DD gods im hoping that it'll be needed once again(I wont lie the trailer for the new potc film didnt help either)so I have a question about Armageddon.
How possible is would it be to duo this? I ask since I dont realy get chance to do anything outside of PUGs and my time zone means I only get to run with my ls for about 3hrs one night a week which is usually seal farming or farming KIs for the "core" members. I dont mind but leaves lots of time to myself.
Since everyone keeps saying mnk + whm can do pretty much everything in abyssea I was considering picking up the new collection when its released tomorrow and leveling rdm/blm/whm with it to dual box stuff.
What jobs do you have atm?
Yes you can duo the entire trial easily, even without MNK+WHM levelled.
I don't have MNK NIN WHM WAR w/e job that makes Abyssea easy mode, but still able get all the way to lv 90 done, I've done all 3 NMs without those easy mode job as well. So I guess you don't really NEED to lv those jobs, although lving those jobs will make your life a lot easier.
Carabosse: I've done it with BLU/NINx2+ BLM after recent update, BLM was there for yellow proc for +2 items, so you don't need a WHM for this NM at all. This NM should be able to solo by some jobs such as NIN/DNC, maybe DNC, BLU, BST can also solo it. Basically for melee straight tank jobs, just keep your shadows up, kite it around the lake if you got mute+dispel to avoid dangerous situations(that's if you're soloing it, if you're duoing with a WHM you can just keep DDing), and gear swap to MDT- set if stunned+ shadows dispelled and AeroV or AMII magic coming. I've also seen a WAR/SAM duoed it with a WHM, he just eats all spells with a MDT- set, so you don't even need shadows XD
I've wrote a possible strategy to solo Carabosse on BLU here: http://an-empty-vessel.blogspot.com/2011/05/blu-solo-carabosse.html
I think it can also apply to other jobs.
CC: Can solo or lowman easily with any job that can bind/gravity and kite nuke. In theory COR can solo it with QD, but that'd take very long time. I think BST can solo it too.
Isgebind: You can just get 4~5 ppl holding KI for you and brew all of them at once with Wildfire. I've also done it with a PLD friend with no WHM in the pt, although that's an Ochain PLD. I think any DD/NIN can duo with a WHM/BLM with a MDT- set and WHM good enough to get through the para aura+ stun -ga spells. I've also seen 2 BST pets main tanked/DD Isgebind, so I think BST can also solo/duo this NM. Edited, May 15th 2011 8:09pm by Afania
