  • Moves at normal speed, and occasionally stops to cast an enfeeble spell on itself. Easily kited with Crimson Cuisses around the rock.

  • Uses Emetic Discharge to transfer all enfeebles it is currently afflicted with to all players in range.
  • Hard to sleep without a Bard, ES Sleepga works, but about 50% resist on normal sleeps. Repose works well.
  • Defeated with a party of 6: PLD,DRG,WHM,RDM,BRDx2. Super tank style, PLD starts the fight. BRDs used Minne x2 & Mambo x2 for PLD, Minuet x2 & Madrigal x2 for DRG. DRG was /BLU for Healing Breath and pulled individual mobs off PLD while RDM & WHM kept both alive. BRDs assisted in erasing status effects. Time taken: @20 minutes.
