Ok this is my way to kill some time because i didn't think the update was until 8 P.M. not A.M. Doh. I made this guide for 2 reasons, 1, everyone knows about it, its on allakhazam so everyone whos seen the BCNM section has seen this, and 2, its a good way for quick money or a expensive item you need.
BCNM 40 Royal Jelly
What is a BCNM?
A BCNM (Burning Circle Notorious Monster) is a battle you fight under a level cap, it involves monsters that are very hard. Sometimes the BCNM fight is timed, like in this case, the Jellies move very slowly toward the center of a circle arena, thats basically your time limit if you want to win easily.
What are the requirements to enter this BCNM?
You MUST be level 40, I say MUST because any lower and you're only making it harder on yourself. You also have to get a Star Orb from Shami in Port Jueno (H-8) by trading him 40 Beastmen's Seals.
How should I get prepared?
I went as a SAM/WAR, i brought 3 Hi-Potions, it's always good to have a few when doing a BCNM, the reason being is because you dont want to lose out on a really expensive drop because you were 30 hp away from winning :(. If your a RDM, (which I heard is a must, but i doubt it) then you should be bringing a few yagudo drinks, because you won't have refresh.
The Battle Plan
The ideal job setup is:
I don't care who you are or if your part asian or not, the object of this BCNM is to kill or slow them down as fast as humanly possible. For my setup i took SAM,DRG,RDM. This setup worked perfectly, the first time we got a little scared they would pull out a Thundaga II or something, so we used a few hi-potions. This isn't needed unless of course you have a crappy mage.
And no, these Princess Jellys only cast tier 1 magic meaning Stone, Thunder, etc. They like to cast rasp and drown also.
When you enter, have the RDM buff you up with Protect II and Shell II, have him cast Phalanx, Stoneskin, Protect, Shell, etc on him, all the good stuff, then he uses a Yagudo drink and rests for 3-4.5 minutes (considering you would rather win right now not try for a record). Please time this, start this at say intervals of 15, such as 3:15. After the RDM has healed for so long, RDM go in first, on the far end of the circle, BIND and GRAVITY the 2 END jellies, the DD's split up and work their way around unless you see a jelly nearing the center.
DD#1: Work on the left side, kill all the jellies ASAP, if you start a jelly, finish it, don't switch targets.
DD#2: Depending on job, this job should kill all the jellys that are closest to the center.
RDM: Gravity+Bind the hell out of them, if you see one moving make sure it isn't moving for long. (Do not bind or gravity a jelly a melee is fighting unless it's close to the middle, its a waste).
I loved this illustration FrostTrunks posted.
This strategy worked for us everytime, we even went in pretty much clueless and still won, not only is this BCNM easy, it drops Utsusemi: Ni and Erase scroll, both sell for 500-650k on our server.
If you fail to kill the jellies before they reach the center, they will turn into Queen Jelly which is very hard depending on how many jellies made it to the center.
After the fight
Make sure you don't have rasp or anything on that will kill you, because if you manage to win this, chances are your gonna have low MP and HP in the red when you're done.
One thing I want to point out, you will be tossed on the other side of the BCNM, you have to go through Palborough Mines again to reach it for a 2nd run.
DO NOT ZONE UNTIL EVERY HAS THE ITEMS THAT DROPPED.
A few days ago i lost Erase along with a couple other items will decent value due to this, we zoned too fast and the last guy didn't even get the items.

Ok, hope you liked my first guide and it helped you people needing money and wanting to do a BCNM..
