Duo Strategy Easily duo'd with a 85DRK/NIN and 85RDM/NIN. Come prepared with echo drops and temp items. DRK had level 85 Apocalypse (though it's curative properties do not work, Varney is undead), and defensive Atmas work well here. Our DRK personally used Vicissitude and Stronghold, allowing for large boosts to defense and magic defense, as well as a 30 HP/tick regen. RDM used Heavens (refresh) and Impregnable Tower (magic accuracy for enfeebles).
Simple straight tank with the DRK. Keep Haste, Phalanx II, Pro/Shell on him at all times. Attempt to stun Aeroga IV, as it's his only real damaging attack. RDM should keep Slow II, Paralyze II, and Addle on Varney at all times. DoT such as Poison II and Bio II will work well here, also.
Took him down easily in about 15 minutes. RDM used a single Lucid Ether, and never had to Convert. Sovereign and Donoven of Diabolos Sovereignffxi 21:12, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
PLEASE SOMEONE EDIT THIS -- SPAWNS AT G-10 Template:Abbysea-vunkerl Possibly level 100 based on solo fight <Infidelity 01:01, September 9, 2010 (UTC)>
Definately not level 100... trioed it a couple of mins ago with: NIN/WAR, RDM/NIN, BLM/RDM. NIN tank in full eva gear and Yonin, RDM debuff and BLM did smaller nukes after hate was established. Was a bit rough a few times when aeroga got through + 1-2 attacks and BLM died 2 times but made it. Fight took 25 mins or so.
Pretty sure it isn't true sight or sound. I walked right behind him (to take a picture) and walked fairly close in front of him. I didn't go test true sight out, but he definitely doesn't have a far range if he is. Spawns at that middle island by the bats. --Defiledsickness

It's true something. While fighting Bukhis, Lethal triclip dispelled out PLD's cruor buffs. They went back to camp to rebuff, came back with sneak and invis, and aggroed our tank at full HP. May be short radius, but definitely True something. --Dracko 23:30, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
Not going to edit front page, but he definetly dont hit for 600+ (verification tag added). He hit me for 300-400 as an unbuffed NIN85/DNC42. Providing screenshot. ~-~Zanno~-~ 11:46, September 12, 2010 (UTC)
He cast Aero 4 on my 80pld for 700dmg. Wasnt ready for him, neither was our alliance that fell fairly quick to him. A mnk actually held him for a long time, however. Also cast Aeroga 4.
