I've had a busy 2 weeks in game, so busy that I wasn't even able to get on the internet that much, but anyway:
Duelist's Tabard: Mine
Yigit Gages: Mine
Soloed Brothers ENM for Hedgehog Bomb!
Do you think you could give me some insight on your sub-job/strategy/gear? I've gotten to the point where soloing this can actually happen...the only problem is I don't want to die and learn from my mistakes since this is a once a week sort of thing.
Sure, basically, you should probably go /NIN when you're first trying, for protection's sake, but I like /blm now that I've gotten good at it, because it speeds up the killing, and you get a warp out. Seeing as you're Taru, you'll be in luck because you can go /NIN w/o sacrificing too much MP. If you have WLegs, i'd just go /BLM because Ele Seal just helps so much.
Basic EXP Enfeebling Set, swapped in.
Basic Solo Nuking, Eleskill+, INT+ gear, swapped in.
HQ Wind, Ice, and Thunder Staves are godly for this fight.
RR Pin, earring, gorget.
INT+ Food (I use Melons+1)
MP Regen (ethers or Mulsem) help, but not neccicary.
Basilly, when you go in, there are 2 Tarus mobs, an Eldertuar and a Mindertuar. You can sleep the mindertuar, but not the eldertuar. They're both Mage mobs (ones a RDM, others a WHM, but that's not impoartant). So what you do is, go in, eat your food, buff up, use RR, rest to full.
Run in, and if you're /BLM hit elemental Seal. Then hit chainspell. Sleep 2 the Mindertuar, and Bind/Grav the eldertuar.
Make your way back to the entrance as the eldertuar follows you, nuke Thunder III, Blizzard III, Thunder III, etc... by the time you have it dead the other one should be waking up. If you brought MP Regen items, use them now.
Use any of your remaining MP to kill it, and try your best to get some DoTs on it. Now die (that's why you used RR, you don't loose EXP, so it's not a big deal). Reraise up, food, RR, buff, rest.
Now, here's where it's different. You can either grav and kite the other one, standard RDM, Bio/Poison and Nuke, (reccomended for /BLM), or if you have a really good melee setup, you could whack away at him (/NIN needed, and make sure you turn for death ray <- This is how Avesta did it).
I prefer the nuking, it really only takes 1 MP pool, and I can convert for that last 1-2 nukes if I get resists.
I normally finish with about 5-7 minutes left.
Good Luck, feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.
Tabard: I hate you;; I need a ls that does dynamis like pros.
Gration & Zip, Those two are a ***** ><. Did gration duo, took 3 hours since first attempt, and Zip I've done 75% solo before having LS come out to speed up process.
Ok, you probably won't believe me, but you can check my LS's website. After 2 straight 0 AF Beauc runs, last monday we recieved.
