Stun is definitely AoE, but Thunder V is definitely not (at least not normally). Our's never used Manafont, so not sure if this changes when active. Having thunder resist atmas/spells on you will help a TON on this NM. As tank, I never got to taste his ultra-spikes, but Thundaga IV would hit for about 2500 (unresisted, with Shell V). It does have about 50% Fast Cast, but -ga IV is still very stunnable. This isn't mentioned in the main page but yes it is stunnable. Primal623 20:54, March 11, 2011 (UTC)
faught this nm several times and it seems to rage a different times. managed to kill it trio with pld/war whm/sch smn/rdm two times so far. seems to gain a huge additional effect when it is raged. (anywhere from 12,000-19,000+ damage observed so far) during one of our pops it spawned raged and killed our pld with a 346 dmg hit that had an additional effect of over 19,000 and then killed me and the smn the same way before depopping. not sure what causes it to rage so randomly or why it is even able to pop raged right off the bat. probly a glitch but would like to hear other's experiences with this nm. our pld had lvl 85 burtgang, aegis, defending ring, shadow ring, and shadow mantle, among other stuff. he was using atma of the sanguine scythe and atma of the ebon hoof. me and the smn were using atma of ambition and atma of the minikin monstrosity.[IMG]http://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee424/Necrids/ffxi_20101014_181119.png[/IMG]
So yeah, just fought this thing and it got +11,000 spikes on it, resulting in lolmelee being one shotted whenever they swung. Katoke 00:00, November 24, 2010 [img]http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb272/ryaznffxi/ffxi_20101123_185640.png[/img](UTC)
3 RDM/BLM trio'd. used chainspell and aero4 spam and used Fanatic+Fool medicines(can get from bastion) and right next to martello to restore MP(near #6) each RDM took 30ish % off, chainspell wore off and NM was 6% then one RDM had 2hour restore potion and killed it. no one died, took 1min 15sec to kill.
Trioed by 90 WHM, 90 PLD/NIN, and SMN (I think he was 90?) last night. I was the white mage. Used Atma of Allure, Minikin Monstrosity, and Atma of the Rescuer (that's my standard combo except for special situations). We won fairly easily, no deaths. I asked the other two who were helping me which atma combo they used; PLD used Atma of the War Lion, Atma of the Bludgeoning Brute (Yes, it's own atma against it), and Atma of the Omnipotent. SMN went for a magic build atma wise; MM, Full Moon, and Atma of the Ultimate. PLD tanked, I used Barthundra and kept the pld up,(Viruna and Erase when necessary as well) and smn used Titan a lot and his merit attack. No one died. I'd HIGHLY recommend that people take that to heart and use lightening resist atmas against this NM if you have to melee it. It will save a lot of pain/deaths. Also along with the usual buffs, I do have full merited Shellra V; That may also help. --Elizara 19:23, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
Can anyone verify that manafont is actually used by this NM? I've fought this guy quite a few times and I've never seen it. Some of the fights were pretty long due to my partner having to exit and job change for procs and I still never saw it used.--Billzey 21:58, June 12, 2011 (UTC)
