Dont know if it can be soloed by your jobs (maybe BST or RDM?) but the fight is pretty easy.

A good equip BLU will be able to solo it i think with the help of some meds (refresh and potions to spare mp).

My disseverment where doing 1k dmg easy (and I dont even have merits) and head **** stun proc was good enough.

One good trick is to bind and run when he does his 2h. I did it and worked very well.

Good luck with it

I soloed this on SMN/SCH without problems. Easy to kite around. Not sure if BST with Jugs could do the same. I used Eclipse Bite /Predator Claw inbetween. I really enjoyed the Storyline aswell as the fight itself.
Only G5 left for me, for when I feel like it. Atm Throne Room warp can be handy.

I soloed it on RDM, it was a fun fight! It's challenging once he two-hours and starts spamming. Tip: If you see him cast a storm spell, follow up immediately with the appropriate barspell. It's hard to consistantly stun on RDM so sometimes you'll just have to take his -aga III in the face. (Manifestation makes his elemental spells AoE. I wish it worked like that for real)


I found that dispelling his storm effect tended to make him follow up by casting another so that may work to keep him busy for a while.

Got him to 61% on PLD/RDM without too much trouble before he decided to 2hr and wipe the floor with me. Might have done better if I'd been using meds however.

Also I posted in the Fairy forum regarding this. ^^

I soloed the fight as a Summoner. It's not a difficult fight, but you do need to put out some decent damage or risk running out of time. If you're interested in how I fought, it's below.

Pre-buffed with Earthen Ward and Protect/Shell from Light Spirit. I started with Fenrir, applying a Crescent Fang for the paralysis early on and several Eclipse Bites during the battle. Carby was only used when I needed some recovery time, since he's effectively a freebie. I was SMN/SCH for Sublimation access and for the cost reduction on spells. No medicines were required, but I had a few ethers and hi-potions on me in case they were needed.

He's not too difficult to defeat, but his 'chainspell strategems' later on can really wipe out avatars quickly. I found I needed Carby to give myself some breathing space after Fenrir was killed abrubtly to nukes.
