Is there a strat to kill this low man? Ideally 6 or less (not top of the line gear but decent gear. I need ***tons of defiant sweat and they are becoming more costly and more rare on my server so I'm hoping to form a group and consistently take this down. Thanks!

We've killed him with PLD, SAM, THF, BRD, GEO, WHM pre-May. Think we had less than 5 mins left, though, and GEO had Idris. Replacing the SAM with a different DD like BLU now would definitely make it go a bit faster.

PLD, GEO, WHM, COR, BSTx2 AOE all the things. Your beasts will need decent reward/dt sets and COR's random deal might be needed to reset their pet timers. Your PLD just needs to know how to gather up everything.

Why would BLU make it go faster? I have a very decent BLU (never get to bring to to vagary events) Just wondering what gives BLU the edge in there? Thanks!

And can you give me an actual strat for the fight, roles, buffs to focus on etc? I know I'm needy but thank you in advance!

What gives BLU the edge is that it's the strongest melee DD at the moment. It also provides far more utility than SAM, so that's always a huge plus for low-man content.

A good few BSTs will make the trash mob waves go by much quicker, but for bosses, a BLU will provide the quickest kills. All depends on what you have access to.

Buffs will be just the same as practically any other melee-oriented fight out there. Cap attack speed and accuracy, then add as much raw power as possible. Also suggest vex, attunement, or both for the bosses, as their AoEs can hurt.

So with Blu am I just capping as much dw crit atk, atk, spells with a few 116 spells (tenbral, spectrul, etc) and not worrying so much about magic aoe? I love my Blu but I guess I never realized it's true potential.

You don't want to as much DW as you can get, you want as much as you need. Which means you need to do math or leech off of someone else who has already done the math.

Mind sharing spell lists? And is the mega boss weak to any specific spells or is it a straight melee with self skill chaining when possible. I never figured Blu could out melee Sam or "heavy" DD on anything lol.

My best suggestion to you, as biased as I am, is to read the guide on the BLU forum and ask all your questions there. The guide will help you figure out what spells to set, gear to use, and how to play the job. I'll add in a DW calculator by the end of the day for people to figure out their needed levels based on buffs.

Just for pretty much every DW scenario, rest is just ramblings.
