Okay, So I'm trying to get my hands on the Piper's Torque, got a free night where I can get help so going to go after it finally. I looked up the NM..
Counters every WS with it's Rip. Counters every nuke with instant cast AM of the same element.
He has to use both his TP moves to perform both it seems right? Silence to cast the AM, and Abrasive for countering WS.
So I figured best to come to the bard forums to see those who have fought this..rather than pay the 1.2 mil.
Only two things I can see that are it's weakness are:
1) Will not counter Avatar Blood Pacts. I have no clue how well these work, but I can always get plenty of SMN's and 70 pact it some, though I will have a tank and other jobs at the fight.
2) It won't be able to counter UNTIL it uses it's TP moves, and depending on the TP move means which it will be able to counter up with.
So that would mean I should have an even amount of nuking power / melee power?
I could also find some RDM's, who are good at what they do, anyways one suggested how sometimes they'll get a few together, do low damage to the mob like 0 with a dagger and let the enspells just eat away at it, long but a bit more safe fight. Or is that not an option here?
I'm just looking for help from the bards who got this item, I'd like it..but I don't want to pay that much for it.
