Heya.

My group does it with the following:

BLU X2 PLD RDM GEO COR and mule BRD (this was be4 our main geo got idris tho), try to reach 1400acc be4 food so you have an easier time now with this agi to evasion update, 1700acc is good now to melee it NP at a good pace, double madrigal from the bard with trou/night (and 2 minuets) plus an acc buff from the geo should be good.

At start, let the rdm (or the person that's gonna blind it so it doesnt do the zombie gaze) land blind with the help of the geo if needed, after this make the geo apply melee buffs and the 2 blus can engage.

Blus should be at max range behind maju (we stay on the far end of 1 back leg) to evade backdraft, a high dmg move with a terrible burn effect, once the BLUs start, make em use CDC > expi and so on full time, they wont skillchain so there's no danger of maju leveling up.

Its pretty simple really, try to turn when it does torpefying charge so u dont get paraed and just keep WSiong it til it dies, just keep in mind blind lasts around 90 secs so u have to reapply it as needed, if the rdm has problems just make the DDs turn and apply -meva/+macc bubbles.

have fun!

We don't bother bringing a tank to our melee Majus. Vex/Attunement is enough to mostly nullify Backdraft and Occultation keeps you alive from physical moves. We usually go BLU BLU GEO GEO WHM BRD and outside COR buffs. We haven't done him post-AGI update, but our buffs before were Idris Frailty/Vex, Dunna Precision/Attunement, Honor March/Madx2/Minuet, Samurai Roll/Hunter's Roll. Should be able to drop Hunter's Roll for either Chaos or Rogue's Roll now.

Any melee should be fine if you've got enough accuracy. Can't remember how much acc you actually need, but even when I accidentally made it level up like 8 times I was still able to hit it. We use RUN DRG BRD GEO Kupipi Koru-Moru and have the GEO Focus for Blind before switching to melee buffs.


Also Blind unresisted lasts for 180 seconds.
