AF3 Seal NMsFollow

I was just curious, has anyone tried low-manning any of the NMs that drop our seals? They don't seem very difficult with a normal experience alliance, but that could just be because there's 15-18 people killing it.. Would a single party or 8 people or so be good enough to kill any of them?

I've tried doing some research myself, but it seems like it's still too soon to find a whole lot of information on some of the Abyssea stuff, so I thought I'd try and see what other peoples' experience has been.

Specifically, the Colibri NM Avalerion is the one I'd like to target since, well, we all know colibri are nice and squishy. But if any of the others are doable with fewer people than an alliance, it would sure make life a lot easier.

Avalerion can be done w/ 2x heals and normal DD/nin. Cockatrice I used a pld 2x heals and DD/nin. Both parties only had 6 members. Haven't tried opo been spamming quest and don't even have the feet.

Or you could just solo it.

Wow. That's a really cheap, but effective, tactic. Seems like anyone that can either DoT or Nuke could handle it, depending on how long you wanted to spend killing the thing. Although she could be more efficient with it, she kept interrupting herself, and misjudging the distance of the mob as it hit the end of the wall, too, that would shave off some of the time. Cool stuff.

Welcome to DoT kiting!

Not sure if you noticed due the use of third-person, but that's me in the video. As for efficiency, did you notice the horrible quality of the video itself? That's because running FRAPS is very resource-intensive; every time I was 'inefficient,' was because the game froze for a second or two, which tends to stop you in your tracks and interrupt spells.

In other words, just be grateful I decided to share in the first place instead of keeping it to myself and making bank off of it like I should've.

I didn't mean to be rude, I was just commenting on the movement-interruptions; I thought maybe the person (now knowing it was you) had been afraid the mob would round the corner and pound on you in the next second so you abandoned the spell and moved. I also didn't mean to be rude by calling it "Cheap"; not meant in a bad way, was hoping also calling it effective would blunt that a bit.

Anyway, I do appreciate you sharing your exploits. I appreciate anyone that shares video of their tactics, as it's easier to see it than to have it explained sometimes.

On that note, unless my memory is failing me (and it does a lot of the time), it didn't seem like you started using a Helix until after you'd put a pretty good dent in its health. Was this intentional, or was it more of an afterthought to throw it on after nuking it a few times? I don't really know how I'd fare soloing, as I'm not a big fan of doing it myself, so I'm not sure if it was part of the tactic or not.

I did Wherwetrice on RDM/NIN so there were no Helices =P

SCH/NIN can definitely do it as well by spamming Alacrity; I just personally hate using /NIN and losing Fast Cast, MAB, Convert, etc. Generally speaking, if I need shadows I use RDM, and if I don't I use SCH.

Question: Do you have movement speed on those ASA legs?

Yes, but it's irrelevant as I was using Atma of Ambition.
