Does everyone have to be on this quest to enter the BCNM, or can people help even if they haven't started (just not get any rewards)? Chernabog 05:35, 20 July 2006 (EDT)

Yes, everyone would need to have reached mission up to that point. My question is will you still be able to enter after you have sold your providence pot (see optional at the end of the quest) --Ibmg 01:10, 24 July 2006 (EDT)

Yes. You can enter the BCNM if the quest is completed in your quest log. --Poof 06:31, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

I'd just like to say that zerging the DRK really isn't much of an option...tried this tonight with NIN/WAR, RDM/WHM, 2x MNK/WAR and 2x SMN/WHM. MNK's hundred fisted him, summoners got off 3 diamond dusts each on iceday, and when we'd all died he was still at 20%. --Valle 04:08, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Switched out one of the MNK/WAR for a WHM/BLM and won. Haste helps the NIN tremendously. Broke record at 15min! --JTimmons 22:56, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Question: If you complete the quest, will you still be able to use the Ahriman Tear to access the teleport? If you complete the quest and do the optional part of selling back the providence pot, will you still be able to use the Ahriman Tear to access the teleport? Fiorenzo 14:58, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Added "Additional Ahriman Tears can be used to return to Mine Shaft #2716 while quest is active." Tested Digimancer 00:03, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

A note to PLD tanks: Unless you bring enough good DDs to quickly win the fight, expect a very difficult time at the end due to frequent Blood Weapon use. Wearing his HP down takes a long time, and mages may run out of MP to cure before you can win. A NIN or /NIN backup tank makes this fight much easier; SAM using Seigan and Third Eye can work as well. - Ooka 06:33, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Capped still? I assume it still is but I figure I'll ask.

Is this still capped after the June 21st update?
