  • Can be defeated by 2 level 70 characters, and solo at level 75 and before, with varying difficulty (see testimonials).

Red Mage's Testimony NOTE:

If you plan to solo Ruby (recommended), use the J-7 zone to your advantage. Silence-pull Ruby, which will also aggro the Darksteel Quadav & Platinum Quadav in the room; be sure you are fully buffed. Allow them to catch up to you next to the zone, then you zone. Zone back into Qulun Dome IMMEDIATELY and Ruby will still be there (still silenced), waiting for you without the Darksteel and Platinum. (*Note that they respawn quickly in the room at the open end of the tunnel, so make sure Ruby is well out of their link range, unless you want a headache from zoning.*)
  • Most if not all Quadav are weak to Lightning magic, but at the time of garnering a Red Mage's Testimony for the Maat fight, Thunder III is not available to RDM, so just Aero III. With the right gear and food, Ruby Quadav will receive 350+ damage on each hit.
