Uses Corpse Breathe (Moderate damage, blind) Uses spells frequently, all observed spells are -gas with the exception of death. Favors blizzaja and blizzaga3, also saw silencega and Breakga (with area of 12 Yalms from target) Recommend a Paladin or Monk tank as it seems to build a resistance to stun quickly. Moderate evasion to a 90 THF/Dnc(+41 Accuracy +30 Dex), Violent flourish yielded no successful stuns throughout the fight and was a complete miss once (No damage dealt).
It seems to use more annoying spells as it gets lower on hp. Didn't see any blizzaga spells at all near full health, started to see Blizzaga IV as it got lower and at even lower health started to see Blizzaja. Same thing with status, saw only graviga at first, then started to see bindga and at low health breakga. If you see something similar plz post and maybe we can figgure out some %hps --Ruben 01:34, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
We did this with 4 smns and some other ppl (7 total). Garuda was getting killed frequently by the blizzagas but ifrit was resisting them like crazy. It was firesday but ifrit took 200 dmg max from blizzaja. --Ruben 01:48, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
So I did this fight again, and had something interesting happen. He somehow managed to do some sort of dispelga type move which appears to be Corpse Breath. Is that suppose to happen?... --Ruben 04:32, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
Unintentional trio BLU/WAR + RDM/WHM + THF/NIN. I have reading issues and was trying to pop the mandragora but popped this instead. Was not very easy, but head butt worked fine for his spells. Does resist if you use it too many times in a row.--Billzey 06:26, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
