Hey!

I've been reading some guides on how to defeat Maat and I tried it now. He totally raped me. Since there wasnt any opo-opo necklace on AH I figured I'd try without it.

I used Chopsuey Chucky and sent it on Maat's Pet which were a beetle. I also engaged his pet.

When I engaged his pet he uses Familiar and I popped mine too.

The beetle hit me really hard and dropped my HP like mad. I used snarl so it'd give me time to get my hp up using potions but the enmity transfer using snarl apperantly wasnt enough and his pet killed me.

I wanted to use Blink band but that was really expensive. I guess it would've helped.

What could I've done any better, you guys got any tips?

Btw I used Reraise and tried him again. But then he did 4 asuran fists in a row. What's up with that >____<

EDIT:

I'm lvl 66 on my beastmaster

You might have just had bad luck on the pet, I don't know since I faced a rabbit and had no problems at all. It also sounds like you engaged too soon.

Send in your pet, allow it to establish hate both on Maat and on his pet. Bring pet food and dawn mulsum. I'd use familiar from the start if you are going to use it for the extra HP. I'm not aware of any advantage to holding familiar till later.

-enter battlefield
-call pet
-use any buff items you have/want
-send pet in, siccing it on Maat's pet
-wait bit for pet to get hate on both targets, use pet food if pet's HP down low enough for it

-come in cautiously, and begin to engage Maat

-if you get any hate at all snarl, and if necessary switch targets or pull back - I know above you said you did, but did you do it from a macro that maybe didn't go off? Because snarl gives your enemity to your pet. The only way snarl wouldn't work is if you didn't actually hit it, or if you didn't have active hate on one of the targets.

What I mean by active hate is snarl will not work on anything you've aggroed without actually using an offensive action on. So you need to actually hit a target or debuff it etc in order for snarl to work.

You don't need a blink band or opo-opo necklace. Pet food and mulsum are way more important. I wouldn't bother with heal pots either. I used a TP wing, sent my pet in to attack other pet, ran in, rampaged Maat, snarled, then just kept wailing on Maat. Maybe healed my pet once.

You also need to be fairly close to your pet to snarl hate onto it, so if you're fighting separate things a distance apart and want to snarl the thing on you, you need to drag it over to your pet to snarl it. I forget the distance, but its fairly close. Any further away and snarl won't go off.

Sorry for the late reply, been away on a business trip and just got back.

Well I got the inspiration of the fight from various youtube videos I've been watching and half of them had the same tactics as I were intending to use but they didn't take as much dmg as I did when they engaged their pets.

The tactics were Call pet and buff up -> send pet on maat -> engage maat's pet and kill it (use familiar before maat's pet dies) -> heal up with hi-potions -> engage maat and if you have tp do rampage -> use icarus wing + rampage again -> snarl -> then build up tp til you can finish him with a third rampage if you need. Heal the pet with reward.

But your tactic seems much more reliable.But I think I'll at least get an icarus wing to use for rampage.

My snarl did work because it made the pet turn and started hitting my pet but as soon as I started to heal the pet turned and killed me. Really embarrassing fight because it ended really quick. >_<

I just need to get a new testimony now. I've read that the outpost in Cape Teriggan is the best spot. I got mine on the third giga in upper delfkut but it's a high risk due to the link and aggro.

Thanks for the tips!

the videos you are watching are old. They are from before the changes to reward and before dawn mulsum.

the method described here is much more reliable. You can just keep curing up your pet and let it keep tanking.

you should be able to do 3 tries on one test now, I think.

>_________<''

Didn't read that part. I was kinda surprised when I saw the test in my inventory. I didn't remember if it disappeared from the inventory before (when lvl cap used to be 75). I traded the test to maat but he said it was outdated. Figured it was already used up.

But thanks for that reply! Now I can beat Maat right after work today ^-^-b

It didnt disappear from inventory before. if you didn't keep track of if you had used it or not, it would just say that when you tried to trade it. Just like an orb for a bcnm... really annoying when you couldn't teleport to the circle and you didn't have a warp scroll....

yeah, and how you just beat Maat is how we solo most NMs - the pet does the majority of the work.

I didn't really think that the pet had that much pottential at that lvl. I thought it was only the 75+ pets that could pull that off. Should upload a new video on youtube with the new tactics xD
