Just killed this with MNK, WHM, BLM, BLM, BLU, BRD - pretty easy fight. MNK (me) tanked with Gnarled Horn + Dark Depths atma. Didn't bother with shadows, just subbed NIN for grellow. It can hit as high as 350, and also has Enaero that can do upwards of 350 damage per hit. The damage seems to vary widely on both, so you're really not taking ~700 damage on melee hits... probably averages around 450-550.
With Shell V and Baraera, Aerial Blast did 1200-2100 on the MNK; the taru WHM survived fine, but the BLMs weren't so lucky. Keep the tank topped off and keep Stoneskin/Shell/Baraera up and this fight is a cakewalk. . --MrBill82x 03:42, December 31, 2010 (UTC)
still a doable fight make sure your mages stay outside 20 and a 2nd tank is a good idea--User:Akka 14:05, Febuary 07, 2010.
If you have Atma of the Ascending One from Bennu, for additional wind resistance, coupled with shell V and baraera, the only dangerous move would be Predator's Claw assuming all hits land. The enaero hits should average around 100-106 dmg and regular hits fluctuate from 100-300 crits. A good healer and monk can kill with no problems while others trigger --[Echandra|Asura]
She is definitely not limited to wandering between the waterfalls on the west side of the map. Every time I've popped her, she's been northeast of Conflux #08. Tyrian 20:17, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
A few friends and I killed Gamayun at 6:29p and had not repopped as of 8:07p. So she does not follow the same rules of the VNM respawn increase that SE promised.
Just camped it today, had a repop time of 10~15 minutes.
I concur with the 10-15 min respawn timer. Littledarc 05:43, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
This is a true AOE move. It does not stick to damaging the party/alliance engaged. Just be careful when you are watching another group fight. Standing at 24.9 I did not get hit. Aiburn 15:51, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
