I'm building an Ukon, and I don't have much help...it's a solo mission, for the most part. Obviously I'm begging for help on my Glavoid Shells; no reasonable way to farm those solo on BST. I'm doing just fine solo'ing my Itzpap Scales, no problems there. For my Orthrus Claws though, I'm running into a roadblock with Tiger King Hides. I know I could just buy them, but 1500 HMP is expensive, so I'm saving every penny for that. I just can't seem to solo Ansherehk reliably on BST. I do fine for the first 50% HP or so, but his gradual +attack starts to kick in, and it's over. Can anyone offer some advice on how to put that tiger down? He's really ******* me off.

A highly evasive pet such as Dipper Yuly, with Atma of the Ducal Guard, Atma of the Mounted Champion, two Pet: -PDT axes, and Anwig Salade with Pet: -DT augments should be able to handle him easily enough. He's not too terribly accurate, so Dipper, being a Thief, will be able to evasion tank him pretty well, and Ducal Guard, Mounted Champion, and the Pet: -DT pieces will help mitigate any physical damage that Dipper may take. As far as magic damage is concerned, Ducal Guard and the -DT Anwig will help there, and just make sure to have some Pet foods and maybe a couple Dawn Mulsums handly, just in case.

Ironically, I don't,t see BST glavoid solo as the problem, but I've never been able to overcome ansherehk's regen on solo BST.

I find tiger king hides show up pretty frequently in gold boxes as well. I know it isn't ideal because you can only hold one at a time, but might be easier to convince a person or two to hang out afk and get exp and cruor while you massacre stuff in return for giving you any extra hides that drop than getting help generally. Just a thought.

Dipper with RR/DG/MC, two -pdt axes, anwig salade, stout servant bonus from +2 pants, and familiar active is still getting worked over pretty badly. I inevitably end up with call beast and reward both waiting on cooldown, and a dead pet. Aside from spending a fortune on dawn mulsums, I just don't see how it's possible. I tried going w/ Cloak & Dagger instead of RR for some extra evasion, but it still didn't work. I'm kinda frustrated.

Are you talking about glavoid?
Dipper works great for it, but I prefer Toloi for the amorph killer instinct. I do more damage and take less.
I tend to use savior atma instead. and I don't use pet haste gear on this fight. pets cure too much when glavoid absorbs physical.
Trick is making sure you have a good WS and hitting it at the right time.
Only his big occasional 9k damage move is a threat and you would need to change pets.
I melee from the side and make sure to turn around at the right times. stun bad things like AoE magic or bad tp moves.
He only gets tricky for me under 10% when he gets super spammy.

IF Ansherehk, then yeah, I've not solo'd him on bst. I can tank him forever, but couldn't get over the regen. brother wolf is good atma if you dont' have savior or future fabulous... I dont' use dawn mulsum for abyssa NM's.

Yes, I was talking about Ansherehk. After several more attempts today, I'm gonna chalk it up as "not soloable" and just buy the hides, I guess.

Xilk, I love you buddy, but suggesting Atma of the Savior... lol

I bet fewer people have that than a 99 R/M/E

You get points for suggesting alternatives though

:)
