Hundred Fists

DEFINITELY does not only use HF after 4-5 double claws. Had it use it after 1 double claw twice in a row to me. wiped both times. this thing is ridiculous. Maletarugilgamesh 01:03, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

concur with above - when I got it down to 3%, it used Hundred Fists after only ONE double claw when I was fighting it. Editing front page to reflect this. Luckily did get blue proc and both drops 1/1. --Hi-chu 00:19, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

Wow, that's very strange, out of 5 different solos It's only been able to use HF twice on me and it was always after 4-5 claws, i'm guessing it has a very very very very small chance to use it if it uses it once? Maybe from 1~5 uses the more times it has to use Double Claws the more of a chance of it being able to use it becomes greater and you were just unlucky... not really sure but from my general experience, it never used it once after 1 claw for me. Subtle Blow helps a lot to prevent TP usage a lot. --Xynthios 14:12, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

Killed this today THF90 THF86 BRD85 RDM87 1 Thf died 2nd tanked it well till weakness wore then went faster with other thf. Skillchains used Shark Bite/Mandalic Stab used Hundred Fists at 15% that about it....all other abilitys were absorbed by shadows. Angr Harpe Drop 1/1

Solo Testimonials

  • Almost trivial solo by DNC90/NIN45 using Fan Dance and evasion + subtle blow gear. He hardly hit me and hardly did any TP moves, so it was mostly easy. I say almost trivial solo because of one thing: Hundred Fists. If you survive it, you win. --User:Asymptotic
Oh, I should add that in a Solo/Duo situation I only ever saw him use Hundred Fists once. However, at one point my party stopped killing Spectators and joined me, and he used it twice, once around 60% and once around 5%. I guess it's also notable that he has pretty high defense and a considerably high HP. Still no dagger, and its name makes me think of Lady Gaga.

  • Be VERY prepared if you want to solo as DNC90/NIN45, this is not for the casual not-fully merited or geared DNC to attempt. With full evasion merits, Evasion skill+17 and Evasion+76 Sutble Blow+12 in my eva set this thing was still fairly accurate stripping my shadows quickly (Needed to cast both Ni and Ichi as soon as timers were up in 26% haste gear) You have to be very careful with swapping shadows, do not be caught with shadows down or this thing will pummel you very quickly. It attacks fast and hits for 300~400 a pop and spinning top will more often than not dispel your fan dance. I used Atma of the Gnarled Horn, Atma of the Razed Ruins and Atma of the Sand Emperor and it took ~20 minutes to kill. It has some really weird defense, sometimes I'd hit for 0~5 and then sometimes for 100. It did use hundred fists after only ONE double claw when it was near death but I managed to take it out before it returned the favor :P --Hi-chu 00:34, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
  • Soloable with SMN and Atma of the Ducal Guard. Didn't ever need to resummon. --Tarage 01:56, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
Took around 36 minutes to kill, it seemed rather evasive at times too, making it difficult to kill it quicker, dropped only Caller's Earring. Subtle Blow is the key to fighting this. Update: He only seems to use Hundred Fists after using Double Claw more than 3 times. It never used it using 2. Update #2: Soloed it a second time with the same strategy, I would recommend anyone attempting to solo this to gear mainly for Subtle Blow and evasion, also bring some HP healing/status healing meds such as potions and Catholicon or Vicar's Drink incase it uses Filamented Hold. Procced red at the start with Cyclone, it NEVER used Hundred Fists once again, I think maybe I'm just getting lucky but I can say for certain it will never use Hundred Fists if it does Double Claw only once or twice, but maybe if it does it more than 3 times. Dropped Atma of the Persistent Predator and Angr Harpe. (YAY!) Going to edit the main article a lot to make my findings clear. Second solo took about 27 minutes.--Xynthios 14:12, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Lowman Testimonials

  • Attempted this last night, just because it was there as we ran past. NIN85, THF90, RDM90, SCH90.

It's not such a bad fight for the most part, until he spams Double Claw 5 times in 10 seconds, then proceeds to Hundred Fists. Used HF at least twice, once around 25%, then again at 5%, which we were unprepared for. Killed our THF, wiped my shadows to hit me for 480, 500, then Grapple for 1200, killed our RDM and SCH, THF and I both RR'd and got it to 1% before it ate us again. Quite frustrating. - Vorinia 10:29, December 17, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hits much too hard to make low man pet burn feasible. Avatars last only 5-6 hits if your lucky. Mayoyama of Shiva
  • 4 manned it with PLD RNG WHM and RDM - our time ran out and we had to get more X3 The key item and atma didn't drop but went 1/1 on the knife ^.^ Glockfox 00:41, December 22, 2010 (UTC)
  • Trio'd this last night with THF/NIN tanking, BLU/THF on DD and hate control, and WHM/BLM. Used fanatic's during first Hundred Fists and PD for second hundred fists. Fight took about 10 minutes. THF had 400+ evasion skill with gear. Not too bad of a fight.

  • I had a very different experience with this NM than others. Tried to do it as THF + RDM. First 2 TP moves it used were a string of 5 double claws, which werent that bad, but I was not prepared for 2 hundred fists in a row. I would say the best bet here is luck. And lots of evasion. Maletarugilgamesh 00:28, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Not to sound like a dick, but is there some reason why people are not kiting this during Hundred Fists? It seems like common sense just to find one of the hundred snow mounds around his pop and just kite him around that until it's done... You don't even have to disengage.--Billzey 23:45, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
