  • Hits extremely hard and can double attack. A tank with shadows is highly recommended.
    • Pre-Berserk melee damage of 250-350 with critical hits of 500+ against level-75 DDs.
      • As an 80 Taru Ranger in hardly even acceptable gear thrown together, and protect 5, I was hit for under 200.
    • Post-Berserk melee damage up to 700.
      • As an 80 Elvaan Dragoon in nothing to mention other than perle, post hit me for under 400.
  • As a bomb, it is weak against Fire damage.
  • As a bomb, it is weak against Arcana Killer.
  • Trust: Ullegore has Fire spells, Stun, and Arcana Killer.
  • Trust: Adelheid will use Firestorm and Fire elemental spells.
  • Trust: Rughadjeen has enfire on his sword for bomb's fire weakness.
  • Susceptible to Blind, Stun, Dispel, Elegy, Finale, Gravity, Sleep 1 & 2, Repose, and Slow.
  • Any Stun-capable job is recommended for the fight.
  • Will use Self-Destruct if it aggros before it is claimed while spawning.
  • If it aggro's and uses Self-Destruct, you will have to check the ??? again.
  • If it uses Self-Destruct before being claimed, there is no chance it will drop the Chandelier Coal. If it Self-Destructs before it is killed otherwise, there is a very minor chance it will drop.
  • Recommended for a thief with Hide ability to spawn the bomb. There is a 2-3 second window after cutscene where Hide can be used. Once hide is used, move a short distance away, and ranged pull the bomb. Doing so may cause the bomb to only use Berserk, not Self-Destruct.
  • Another tactic that works is to have a Dnc with some merits to do the pull (Spectral jig is your friend there). Went as Dnc/Nin with one merit in Fan Dance and Utsu:Ichi and Ni. With merited Evasion the bomb will rarely hit you at all. Violent Flourish as stunning move rounds up the package

Warning: Be careful of Chandelier's Self-destruction, it will do high damage.

Note: If you fail to successfully claim him and he Self-Destruct's there you will have to wait 10-15 minutes for the respawn. You do not have to go back and check all the ??? again. - Shaawn: Asura 30 April 2010
