Finally got around to attempting this tonight and it went much better than I could have hoped. I ended up walking away with 45 coins for my trouble and a number of AF upgrade items, after finally timing out on the Behemoth Floor. I figured I'd let you know how it went incase any other BST feels like they would like to try it.
I went 90Bst/45Dnc (Mainly for Violent Flourish to stun the Ghosts ~Aga's) and Dualwielded a +20 Pet Eva axe and the OA2-3 times Richadets Axe, I also used Yuly through out. Unfortunately I forgot to stock up on Pet food before I entered, and only had a stack of Zeta on me.
Anyway I wasnt sure what to expect, after the responses on this thread I kind of expected to time out around the second floor, and as such I kind of rushed the first floor, I unlocked the portal on the 5th Ghost, and ignored the boss completely. The Ghosts were pretty easy, Ice spikes wasnt as much of an issue as I expected, Yuly tanked them like a Pro.
By the second floor I was feeling much more confident, my time was still at 30 plus minutes so I thought I'd try for a full clear. Again Yuly did great and ate through the buffalo with no problem, I kept up Haste Samba, Box step and used Healing Waltze whenever I got hit by disease.
It didnt take long to clear the Buffalo and as I was sitting at around 40 minutes by now, I decided to attempt the boss. Once again Yuly did me proud, I had to use a few Zeta but I was never really in any danger.
Now I had a little hiccup on the third floor and lost a lot of time. I got a little careless and ended up aggroing a couple of Bugards, and died before I realised what was happening (Watching TV whilst playing is never a good idea). Once I had waited for them to move on, had RR'd and unweakened I set to work on them. Despite my death these were also very easy, Yuly took them out with no problems.
Now I had no intention of fighting the Turtle boss, however he was pretty much sat on one of the time chests, so my plan was to set Yuly on him, pop the chest and then run to the portal. However after watching them slog it out for a few rounds I thought what the heck and decided to join them. Again very easy fight, it took a while but Yuly was rarely hit. After 5 minutes or so the Turtle fell.
Fouth floor is where it began raining ABC's. The wyverns were easy enough, para is annoying but healing waltze generally removes it after a few attempts. I ended up linking a few Wyverns on one pull, but Yuly managed to hold them both with few problems, and all in all I cleared the wyverns quite quickly.
Next up was the boss I figured Yuly had coped so well with everything else, I might as well give it a go. By this time I was down to my last 2 Zeta's which I ended up using during the fight, I fought next to the foreleg, whilst Yuly attacked from up front. Yuly spent a lot of the fight Terrorized, but the Wyrm struggled to hit Yuly most of the time (<3 Spiral Spin!). The only damage we really took came from its wing flap move, but it was nothing waltz's couldnt handle. I ended up losing 1 yuly during the fight (Could have been avoided if I had stocked up on petfood).
By now I was out of Zeta and had to Stay my pet to heal it to full before continuing. One thing I didnt realise was that there are no chests on the final floor and by the time my pet had healed to full I only had 10 minutes remaining. The NQ Behemoths posed little threat, Yuly tanked them fine. With no pet food however I ended up needing to call a new pet halfway through the second Behemoth. I managed to kill all 3 just within 10 minutes and timed out before I could test my luck with the Kaiser Behemoth.
Overall I'm quite pleased with the results, it wasnt the cleanest of runs but I got further than anticipated. If I hadnt died on the 3rd floor or run out of Petfood I might have been able to try to take down the Kaiser Behemoth. I think I'm going to try it again next weekend, and maybe ignore the first 3 bosses. Obviously Meteor would make meleeing with my pet a little risky, but depending on how much damage my pets take from it, and how much time I have remaining, I may be able to just stand back and spam pet food the whole fight. I'll try it next week and see how it goes.
