The Battle

  • Buffs do not wear upon entry.
  • You lose Experience Points if defeated.
  • You DO NOT need to be on Samurai to enter the BCNM.
  • You can die and Reraise without aggro (assuming you die outside of the main circle), but the demons regen HP when not engaged in battle.
  • You must kill the following three demon NMs within a 30-minute time limit:
  • Demons appear to be level 66-67.
  • The demons are immune to all forms of Sleep and Silence; however, you can put Onibi to Sleep.
  • Paralyze, Bind, and Gravity affect the demons, with resistance building over time.
  • The demons use their 2-hour abilities at low HP.
  • When Onki uses Astral Flow, even if he has Onibi (an Elemental) out, he summons an Avatar named Ayakashi, which can be any of the 6 original Celestial Avatars.
  • Gaki can cast Burst in relatively quick succession, make sure to stun or have shadows.
  • Onki has approximately 3000 hit points. Rasetsu has approximately 7500 hit points. Gaki has approximately 6000 hit points.
  • Can be defeated by many combinations of two level 75 characters. Solo fight possible with some 75 jobs.
