If you're counting on Sheep Song, amnesia on the pet would hose your plans as well.

Yeah but it only lasts 5-10 seconds. Nazuna can tank all 6 of them long enough for it to wear easily, much less 3 nazuna's. (4 ga 3's and the attention of their boss only took off 25% of one sheep's hp.) And the amnesia sticks rarely, too. Got hit with washtub about 30 times that fight and only got amnesia'd twice. The stun lasts longer than the amnesia. Either it has a very low proc rate, or Resist: Amnesia is glitched and doesn't give the "Resist!" message.

You really want your sleeper to not get hate in the moogle fight until the third phase. Their job is to sleep and kill babies, not get on the bosses hate list. That way they avoid draw in. The babies are still the thing that`s going to ***** you, they`ll wipe level 90`s very easily if they get their spells off. Apart from that you just need to be able to deal with the mobs. Easy stuff if you can take a BLM.

All hate is wiped when he goes to get healed. So all the sleeper would have to do is not get hate after his last healing session.

EDIT:Also he doesn't use draw in in the last session either. So all the sleeper has to do is not be dead at 50% hp during his last phase.

The only thing that hurts on hedj is the poison aura/venom breath. The only oddity was this: I used some pet food after poison, and it regen'd up. I have several screenshots showing my <pethpp> macro and being as high as 62% and STILL taking 0 damage every hit.


I've noticed this with certain pets also, mostly DipperYuly. Its "50%" health seems to occur around 70% HP according to <pethpp>. Anyone else notice this? Dunno why that would happen... I've seen the Ducal Guard activation % change based on halving max HP (added effect from Quasimodo's Shadow Burst) or other such alterations (like Atma of the Alpha and Omega), but I'm not sure why the halfway point would naturally be different compared to something like Nazuna.


Same here! My Dipper seemed to have DG kick in around 60-65%. I noticed it the other day while fighting Ironclad Cleaver and Kampe. DMG from Death Scissors and all of Cleavers attacks dropped significantly at around 60% with Dipper. Was using DG/Lion/Heavens.

DG does kick in around 60-65%.

Finally got off my **** today and re-did Kupo fight for Anwig Salad.

I went to altepa to finish off body seals but no luck getting vnm, so i fought Ouzelum and the bird was hitting dippy for 0dmg. Used 2 Biscuits because of magic dmg that can easily be stun.

Anwing Salad (-10% DT, Haste +5)
2x -10% pdt axe
Shepherds Chain
Quijotes +2
Selemnus Belt
misc bst stuff: Ferine mantle, Ferine Earring, Mirke Wardecors with pet acc/attk.

Atma - Lion/RR/DG.

I have all of that except Shepherd's Chain, and Ansherkh was hitting my Nazuna for 20ish. Does that sound right? Seemed high for only missing 2%.

Just got Winged Gloom tonight. 30% is nice but how do you deal with the slip damage?

A regen Atma and the Regen from Reward will probably keep you in the black. Beast healer is probably a nice thing for this too. As to how useful this Atma is, I don't really know. Someone else around here might have an answer for you though.

Apart from the pdt I'm interested in the Resist Death trait, which I've heard is quite strong, for fighting Buhkis. I'm going to be spamming him soon and he's notorious for being a *******. It sounds like it might come in quite handy.

I'm 99% sure that Resist Death doesn't work on Doom. :/ Sorry.

It would be handy for Sobek tho, and his lovely Tyrant Tusk move.

I didn't keep close count, but in an attempt on the skele NM in grauberg I used the WG and pet resisted death about 5/6 times.... there were only about 6 casts... then wiped.

otherwise yeah, use reward and and regen atma to counter the slip damage... it really sucks. I only use it in very few circumstances.

Yeah, but if you use a regen atma you have to give up RR or whatever DD atma you're using, so it kind of defeats the purpose. Bummer, I thought maybe there was some other trick I was overlooking.

So do hits for 20 damage from Ansherkh sound right for 98% -pdt? Shepherd's Chain is the only thing I'm missing from the 100% pdt setup, but I thought that seemed high for that much pdt.

Ansherekh hits ungodly hard. 700-1000 per hit is about the norm without any pdt. So yeah, 20 dmg for -98% sounds about right. :)

This is what I thought, it's a bummer about the "Resist Death" not working with doom. For some reason I thought it worked with it, wishful thinking maybe.

Yeah, as far are full magic and full physical resistance goes, I've gone over a few options several times.

Ducal Guard, Zenith (since this is probably 10%), 20% -dt gear set. mdb axe and -pdt axe will get you close to 90% reduction on physical and magical, and still room for rr so damage doesn't totally suck.

Atma of the future fabulous + Ducal Guard might turn out really great, but I'm still working on WotG missions so haven't been able to check that yet.

Atma of the Savior + DG + -dt/pdt set will get you -90% pdt -70% mdt and maybe 10% absorb of FULL damage. the damage absorb occurs before any damage reduction. so it might be a net gain. again, I haven't tested this because I haven't completed all abyssea zones.

2x mdb axes would probably be really good anyway.
So you can make pet invincible to both, and lose all good DD. You can make pet invincible to 1 or the other, and still use RR. Not bad options really. I mean, keeping RR and invincible pet... that just broken ^.^

the DG + WG + MC is actually pretty useful to buy plenty of time to proc on shinryu or Rani. or hold anything LOW man while you proc, then brew. Otherwise, its not too useful.

Can confirm zenith is -10% DT. Have been using Zenith+RR+Ducal for the past few weeks soloing a ton of stuff. With 2x pdt axes, shep chain, MKD head, Selemnus belt, af3+2 pants you are at 100% pdt, 83% mdt. Works for anything that doesn't have heavy DoT or doom, and you get to keep RR.

The alternate (which i haven't tried yet) is Ducal+Winged Gloom+ any regen atma for 100% DT but you suffer a 30tic dot. With mounted champion this is down to 10 a tic, which is still significant. You also only get the full DT between 50% and 20%. With Pet food Eta you can keep your pet within the margins through the regen of the pet food alone. Could be an option.

I sub in Lion for Zenith if the mob i am fighting use no magic (for the Triple Attack bonus).

Related to the thread: Solo'd Hedjedjet (still working on body+2), Sirrush (legs+1), Cep-Kamuy+Heqet (Cirein trigger) and Cirein-Croin himself for my +2 legs. Also held/solo'd Azdaja with Lulush for the last 20% hp after my party wiped. It was a bunny of doom moment. Azdaja would be a comfortable solo.

How did you deal with en-doom on his hits and his ability to dispel atmas? Does the dispelling atmas thing just not work on pets?

I think dispelling atmas is a tp move only used from in front. I used pet right in the back and it only used flail. Endoom never proc'd (I didn't even know it had endoom honestly). I stood over 30" to avoid flail, ran in for wild carrot every so often, used eta when needed but didnt reward in my reward set, just wanted it for the regen. Flail occasionally went off when i ran in, but with 3 shadows it would either absorb them, or absorb + 1300 dmg exactly. Always 0 dmg to pet of course.

The en-curse was the worst part, as i couldn't judge how much nukes would do % wise (~300 ish at 83% mdt), and I figured over eta'ing would be an issue - didn't want to push pet above 50% since curse+flail would mean dead pet. Unsure if curse counts towards the 50% trigger zone for ducal though.

Well at least azdaja's pop item is common from gold chests. Got 8 (and could only take one because it's a key item) when trying to get jaculus wings.

OOOPS!! you were supposed to pop Azdaja in between each of those!

Good to know. I'll take another stab at him. I thought the biggest problem w/ fighting Azdaja was getting close enough to give pet commands usually meant close enough to be slept/terrorized/etc.... but I did this fight/got this atma before players figured: "Oh wait, Spike Flail is not the end of the world anymore!!"

Try farming for azdaja pop item and you will mainly get jaculus. That is always how SE works.

I'm planning to fight Gamayun T2 VNM Garuda type with Yuly this weekend. I have no idea how well this fight might go. If anyone have some sort of experience with this, please provide as much information as possible about equips/atma.

I fought Lorelei last week and I have to say it didn't go so well even though I managed to win. I used Yuly and managed to chip in a few melee hit before her AOE/spells gave me a run for my money. Yuly took a decently large amount of damage from wind spells like Aero5 and Aeroja(500-ish) and AOE. Melee hits were 200-300 above 50% HP and dropped to about 80-100 below. I only have Ducal's Guard and 2 10% -Pdt Axes to block damage.

She's mean. She never casts spells, and just melees pretty fast. Tried to help a friend with it, and since they had a mnk to tank and a whm to heal, I went with DD atmas. She killed the tank in one shot with her two hour, which she uses a lot, and then ripped yuly to shreds in seconds. Went and got Ducal gaurd/mounted champion atmas, and tanked her again, and I still had to ride the reward timer. (with 77% physical- taken) She's mean, but doable. And yuly doesn't dodge at all until after spiral spin.

She might also be stingy, the BLM got the yellow trigger and she still dropped one seal. But that's just my luck again.

Of course, after soloing all my BST+1's and a couple COR+1's and a BST+2, soloing is just not worth it. Gotta bring someone with triggers if you don't want to blow 100k gil on jugs/biscuits per seal, and then you gotta bring a tank to keep hate off the trigger-er, and a healer for that tank. So much easier and faster to do it as a group, even with complete strangers in a pick up.

Since I got my Atma of Ducal Guard I've been testing nm's. I use RR, DG, and Zenith. Have both pdt axes and the pdt helm along with AF3 +1 legs. I am missing the neck piece still but here's what I've found so far cause we don't always want to farm just bst AF drops with our pets.

Brain Dead Simple (no food)
Chickcharney (Thf,Sam, Rdm, Pld hands)
Koghatu (Blm, Whm, Sch, Rdm hands)
Avalerion (Drg, Brd, Sch, Mnk legs)
Wherwetrice (Blm, Rdm, Sch, Whm head)
Aggressor Antlion (Smn, Blm, Brd, Pup head)
Nightshade (Brd,Pld,Blu,Rng head)

Easy but tricks

Both Nms seem to spam TP moves if you don't disengage or turn around. Just heal pet and turn till tp moves stop then reengage. I did need some food but nothing drastic.
Kampe (Sam, Drk, Drg, War head)
Gaizkin (Brd, Drg, Mnk, Sch head)

Horrible Para Try to Snarl as much as you can so you do not pull hate.
Gieremund (War, Thf, Drg, Dnc head)

Just Turned for Dread spikes till they wore off with both you and pet melee'in you can out DD his AoE drain move.
Kharon (Blu, Rng, Bst, Smn head)

Used Fatso he was getting hit for 0 damage. Stay out of tp range and his one move Seismic Impact is hate reset. Watch anmesia and have lots of time built up took about 45 min no food.
Ironclad Cleaver (Mnk Ammo, Dnc Feet, Drg Back, Velox Harness)

Going to keep testing as I farm for alot of friends I enjoy killing stuff but basically anything without magical moves are EASY just time consuming. Remember to snarl after ws's for nm's without hate reset. For nm's with hate reset wait till you get hate. I did all as bst/nin and tried with different pets for fun. Ended up using Fargo for drain kiss so I could be cheap with the food.

Thanks for the input, I tried her yesterday with another bst and she is nasty but not too hard for a duo. Atma: RR, DG and Ascending One (+100wind resist). This little wind resist causes yuly to resist most of the wind attacks and out right survive multiple Aerial Blast with only 90ish damage taken each. Her physical damage is very dangerous though. I have DG and 2 -10% pdt axes and she still hit yuly for 80-100dmg per hit and she hits really fast. Perdator claws will be the most damaging move to yuly and I often have to ride the reward timer if she does that move. Whispering Wind heals her for like 2.7k HP while yuly only hit for double digits.

With only +100 wind resist, her Aerial Blast will still hit you for massive damage and will often kill you if you have less than 3000hp. Adding a Whm or Rdm to pump in another +100 wind resist then you can join to melee.

Just like louispv said, this might not be a worth while solo effort.

Wherwetrice (Blm, Rdm, Sch, Whm head)

Inspired by an earlier post, I've been spamming Wherwetrice this week as BST/NIN. It's is a fairly simply fight, but I think there are some "gotchas" that a BST needs to watch out for:
1. En-amnesia is bad. It lasts long enough that you may not be able to Snarl before you're dead. Always have 3 shadows up, don't even think about trying this as /DNC, and Snarl immediately if Wherwetrice turns your way.
2. Baleful Gaze is bad. Unlike a lizard's Baleful Gaze, you will not have time to turn around when you see this move being readied. This is another reason to Snarl the moment Wherwetrice looks your way. Also, early on in the fight, don't Rampage until right after you see Wherwetrice use a TP move. It really sucks to Rampage and have Wherwetrice turn to you and immediately use Baleful Gaze before you have a chance to Snarl.

Using your TP on Wherwetrice early on is the tricky part. After a couple of Rampages and Snarl, you'll be free to Rampage whenever as your pet will have enough hate to keep Wherwetrice from turning. When Wherwetrice turns, and you're close to 100 TP, the temptation is to let it attack you just a bit longer to build up TP and Rampage before Snarling. This is a bad idea.. That extra time may be just enough to lead to an untimely Baleful Gaze. It's better to just Snarl immediately and sit on that TP until the next safe opportunity during the early part of the fight.

He is right if you do pull hate both those moves will mess you up. I originally tried this nm as Nin/dnc and barely pulled out solo because of those moves. But if you just snarl after every WS since that NM doesn't have a hate reset move it really is brain dead simple. :)

I had a completely different experience. I almost soloed it (had a blu there for procs that insisted of getting himself killed repeatedly to aerial blast :P and a blm who nuked a couple blizz spells when enmity douse was up to make it a bit faster) with razed ruins, ducal guard and siren shadow atmas, and Yuly resisted every tp move, including aerial blast, to double digits. And Garuda's accuracy was very bad. It's probably the evasion atma, it's very noticeable. :) I think I rewarded twice the whole fight. I of course stayed far far away to not get killed. ^_^

I still think she's not worth soloing tho, because of how long it takes. >.>

Not a solo, but solo straight tanked ironclad pulverizer with -100% PDT, -85% MDT. A couple of people from my social LS didn't have RR so we went and gave it a try BST, PLD, NIN, SMN, WHM. Was prepared to spam a lot of reward foods and maybe some pets as well but tanking it was a joke. Only bad thing is if you pull hate and it fires the strip gear move. That messed it up some and had to call a 2nd pet. Didn't trigger red on first kill :( only missed scythe WS. 2nd kill was a lot smoother and only used 1 zeta food. Got trigger and had a BLM join for killing it fast at the end.

Soloing the pop key items is also possible.

Soloed T2 VNM in Abyssea - Misareaux. I gotta say that that NM is random... when I did it with group, all it cast was protect and shell, and when I went solo, it spammed -ga 4 back to back to back. Sheep tanked like a champ tho (DG/RR/MC atmas), only taking 200-400 from spells and 10-20 + 20-30 (enspell) from melee hits (after DG activated). I used 6 or 7 zetas to get it to ~10%, then it went straight out crazy. First it slaughtered one sheep, then when I called another it was hitting for 300-400 + 200-250 enspell which only dropped to 100-150 + ~100 enspell when ducal guard activated. It literally took less than a minute for it to drop sheep from 100% to under 30%. Thankfully could still finish it.

Also duoed Ironclad Severer for fun (Misareaux giant). I bet it'd be soloable too, it'd just take longer.

Soloed Pallid Percy.

Me: 90BST/DNC
Pet: Dipper x1
Food: Zeta 0-2
Atma: RR/MC/DG

Pretty simple fight. I made a trade macro, so I could engage quickly and stun his opening spell with VF. Just make sure you stun his damaging spells throughout the fight. Keep your HP up with Waltz. Most of the time you won't need to use any food. He has low HP, so it is a quick fight.

Note: He only used Draw In/Mud Slide once per fight against me, usually at low HP. It's not that dangerous. The one fight he didn't use it at all.

I can recommend /DNC for that VNM for stuning -gas.

Soloed Ironclad Executioner. The arm cannon hate reset move can be a bit risky. It would often turn and do a knockback move and I would be too far for snarl >_<

Also soloed Mictlantecuhtli as /NIN. Was a very long fight, around 30min. Pet was parked with /stay to not heal it. I would stand out of range and once it started a spell I would run in, do 1 melee round and turn. Repeat untill 100% TP, then run in and WS and turn. It sometimes got -gas spells off very fast so ended up using a lot of temp items to cure myself. Also ended up using the TP temp items I had to get it done. Only healed it once with a WS. The long part was getting TP so for this fight I would realy recommend sea daughter instead of RR. And also /DNC to be able to cure yourself after some bad moves. The time between spells was rather long.

Was doing Mictlantecuhtli for serpent hands so have also been hunting Brooder for feet. Brooder isn't that hard either. I tried to keep my T3 VNM upgrade after doing a new Brooder, but ended up killing Ruminator also. Was also /NIN and stayed out of the fight for the most part.

Violent flourish sticks on it? I guess I just had notoriously bad luck when I tried it as dnc main, violent flourish with lvl 2 stutter step (used presto) missed twice (well, hit, but stun didn't proc), and then I died to second -ga 4. ;_;

It doesn't stick every time. But as BST we have the luxury of hitting the stun macro and run away.

Also, I retied Mictlantecuhtli again with /DNC but 2 pull (tries) in a row it cast drain on me when I pulled it and curing myself just pulled more hate. So came back the 3rd time as /NIN and of course it didn't use drain on pull lol. But otherwise I used sea daughter instead of RR and would just stand at 4' away from it and hit WS macro when TP was ready and it was casting. Sea daughter also have regen in daytime, which resulted in pet getting above 50% a couple of times, but didn't pose a problem. I don't know if its MAB boost was higher this time or pet just was above 50% becourse drains hit for lige 1200+.

Had a go at Kutharei duo BST + SMN. Had forgotten that it uses that TP move whice reduces you to 1 HP so we both got hit. And same thing happened as with Resheph, pets just died. I didn't take a screenshot of it, but log had it using that TP move followed by aeroga 4 that didn't damage pets becourse the log already had the pet defeated.

I haven't registered on the official forum yet, but maybe Xilk can post on the dev forum about this. I know you already reported the problem with Resheph, but I think that was before the official forum.

I did Npfundlwa and it wasn't a pretty fight. This NM has a habit of resetting hate over and over again. The NM itself is easy prey; however, if you keep getting attacked by the NM and your pet fail to pull hate back then it can get very dangerous. Overall, just stick the pet to it and run far far away from hate influence and hop in for some Sics and Rewards. I used Yuly but I thin Nana will also work if you have lots of cheap pet food.

Carabosse is tankable solo. I have no idea if she's soloable between the cures and benedictions, and her one hour rage timer. But my yuly with ducal gaurd/razed ruin/mounted champion and 2 axes/moogle hat/+2 pants was over 95% hp the entire fight with 0 rewards and she was tanking. (There were 6 other people providing damage, though not providing any tanking except for a minute or two until the second yuly re-established hate.) Like the rest of the pixies, everything is wind, and everything is useless against yuly.

I thought she had somehow one shotted yuly at one point, but then I realized yuly depopped from the jug timer. Have no intention of trying again until I finish farhsa and all the gun trials up to that point, so probably not for months. Someone else can try an actual solo. I have too many lanterns/discharges/fangs in my mog storage to also save gems.

God I hope those things stack after SE relocates the servers and gets the update running.

It can be soloed fairly easy with yuly. I did it with -100% PDT and -83% MDT but I think it can be done with pure DD atmas. It wasn't my pop, so had a BLU friend there that did haste me and tried to debuff it, but didn't melee along. It only nukes wind and it's accuracy is fairly bad. Could probably go 2x eva axes and DD atmas instead.

OK, first of all, this is post is going to be long and a request on soloing for BST.
However, since all answers would result in solo-able NMs, I though this would be best implemented here than in a brand new topic.

Currently, I'm working on soloing most of my seals to get +1 AF3 for DRG, BST and PLD.

My setup at the moment is really the "out of the mill" BST soloing stuff, which is:
- Anwig Salade with Pet: damage taken -10%
- Guichard's Axes with pet : Physical damage taken -10% (2)
- Selemnus Belt (just in case)
- Ferine Quijotes +1
- Atmas : RR, MC and DC

*I still need to camp Okyupete for the Shepherd's Chain

Right now, here are the NMs I've tried to solo and my opinion on them:

- Sirrush : AFK material with Dipper Yuly. As long as you can position yourself outside of AoE range, you could literally set yourself on auto-attack and go make dinner while it's being killed. Most problems would come from uncooperative competition camping the ???.

- Ika-Roa : LONG fight; I went /DNC for when he casted -ga spells as I would violent flourish the 1st so I could run out of range in preparation of the 2nd -ga. I used Fatso for the resist water damage trait. Mounted Champion was enough to keep me healthy when he used Aqua Ball.

- Kampe : Easy with Dipper Yuly. He is more annoying than hard since you need to /heel each time he uses a TP move so you dont activate his very high store TP trait at that moment.

- Nehebkau : 1/2 on solo fight. He has really high evasion and Dipper Yuly had a really hard time hitting him, even with quickstep Lv.5 on it. By the end of the 2nd fight, where I lost, snarl wasn't enough to mitigate enough enmity onto my pet, which resulted in me being eaten to death.


From there, I would need some suggestions on the next NMs I could solo for +1 (and maybe +2) seals.
DRG head, BST head, DRG hands, DRG legs and BST legs +1 are all already covered.


Here are the NMs I though about for the rest of the sets:

DRG:
- Chione for body seals
- Armillaria for feet seals

BST:
- Koios for body seals
- Bugul Noz for hand seals
- Hrosshvalur for feet seals

PLD:
- Pallid Percy for head seals
- Blanga for body seals
- Chickcharney for hand seals
- Asanbosam for leg seals
- Iktomi for feet seals


From this, I would like to see your suggestions, alternatives, comments and strategies on succeeding in killing those foes.

Thanks in advance for the replies.

Garry is an easy solo with Yuly. The fish is apparently a *****.

Is there an error on FFXIclopedia then?

I though only those 3 NMs dropped feet seal for BST and Hrosshvalur seemed the lesser evil of the bunch:

Hrosshvalur == Pugil
Seps == Puk
Dvalinn == Dvergr

From the wiki, Gary drops BLM, SMN, PUP and BRD feets, not BST.

Wiki is correct. Gary doesn't drop BST feet.

Seps isn't too difficult. The only problematic thing about Seps is Somnial Durence. But you can stun it with Violent Flourish if you sub DNC.

the paralyze aura on iktomi is annoying, but its not really a hard fight w/ your setup. run out of range for pet commands. He will eat your face if you take hate and a crucial command it paralyzed. Otherwise not too bad.

Pallid Percy, /dnc just make sure to stun the -aga spells.

bugol noz is soloable you may want to get close to dom sergent to get more screens. It helps speed the fight along. Its a melee only fight. bugol NOz' tp move take your tp away, below 50% the amnesia is really annoying. /nin is just fine for procing on solo. might want to pet only below 50%.

Hroshh just use leech and try to stay away. /nin is useless. It will hate reset and come after you. Stoneskin form /sch is very nice for this. takes a littel pet food. w/out pet food it takes about 3 leeches... then again I didn't have a perfect set that way..

Seps is usually easier/quicker for bst anyway. Use dipper and stay away, the sleep/poison will kill you if you don't.

Koios is are super easy fight for solo bst. You can melee along w/ pet but... Earthen fury will be the end ofyou if he does it. He often does not... but it can happen 4x in a fight also. 30' is too far to run away from.

chione.... you can probably solo... but you'll use alot of pets. go for a very high physical +magical build and run out of range if you need to heal and not take hate.

Armillaria I only fought a couple times. was really easy for bst. I don't remember the setup though.

Asanbosom is not too bad either, but I don't remember the setup. regen probably helpful on this one.

I"ve not fought the others.

For +2 cards;

DRG
- Head, Lusca, fairly easy fight tough can end up taking some time since it switch between immunities.
- Legs, Tristitia, toughish fight mainly becourse of the shock spikes. can't realy melee along.
- Feet, Ketea, fairly easy fight. the hard part is claiming T2 VNMs.

BST
- Head, hope for drops from Lusca when going for DRG/PLD. Haven't done Ulhuadshi yet.
- Legs, Cirein-Croin, fairly easy fight.
- Feet, Ketea, see DRG.

PLD
- Head, Lusca, see DRG.
- Legs, Amhuluk, a joke with yuly. can be tricky to melee along be course of high damage moves.
- Feet, not solo friedly.

I haven't start on body and hands cards and have limited experince on the NMs.

for +2 body, Hedjedjet is soloable but I would recommend at least a duo.
It will take about an hour to solo hedj. W/ a smn it is much less.

I've tried Seps once, how the **** do you fight the ******* with so many True sight Peapuks? Is there an easy/safe spot to pull him?

Pull him over to the rabbits. also, Peapuks are not TRUE sight. they are just sound + sight like other puks.

You can spawn seps, then set pet and get your inviz/sneak on then pull over to the rabbits to avoid pulling more aggro.

I'm 99% sure Somnial Durence is gaze based. I've gotten so many "no effects" when duoing it (as support mage). If that's the case, quick Heel would solve the problem (and of course not facing it yourself). The en-poison can be a problem if it procs on high end, seen it do 200 hp/tick. :/
