Need 1 person doing magic AoE ws and 1 person doing physical AoE ws to break some aura. That is what I read and that is what I am doing...

OH that explains why I wasnt able to break it since I was alone with trusts and just spamming Subduction.

Hey guys, we put together some of the info given here and did a few D runs pretty easily. VD was kind of a pain-ish, don't really know if it's worth it, D was like a 4/5 minute spam.

All the credit goes to you guys for the info, just posting it to help out and for whoever interested:

***Edit*** Run actually starts around minute 4, before it's just some bla bla :)

Does killing adds make the aura un-removable from the boss?

No mic for this one! It finally packed in and I need to go buy another one.

Really simple fight but you need to know what you're doing. This fight is basically like a game of Whack-A-Mole and your DDs are using the mallets.

  • Have your GEO silence the Zahhak right away, you don't want Nullsong or Voidsong going off.

  • Auras on the adds are dropped with magic weapon skills (Justicars) and physical weapon skills (Sharpshooters). We used Aeolian Edge and Fell Cleave.

  • Keep an eye out for the auras on the adds and drop them ASAP, this will drop the aura on the MB and lock him out of his worst attacks.

  • MB will not use Pleiades Ray if his aura is down, which makes him a lot easier.

  • DD need to be careful to not kill the adds while the MB is alive, if you do that you have no way to drop the aura and the fight is going to suuuuuck.

  • Papesse is absolutely right, RUN can keep Stoneskin up to prevent being killed as soon as Head Seize connects.

Good call on the stoneskin, I guess VD is much better timewise then. Probably gonna do a few runs later, thanks!

Aura gives DT- and access to the most dangerous moves (Supersonic, Pleiades Ray and Head Seize)
Supersonic gives Magic Shield+Regen (undispellable and lasts 1~2 min)
Head Seize (VD only) reduces hp to 1 and reset hate.

The most important part to know :
A timer will start from the moment Bozzetto Bruiser or one of his adds has been damaged and the aura will appear after exactly 15 seconds. The Dahak in VD does not count, you can kill it first, the timer won't start as long nobody attacked the boss/adds, you can debuff them but not Dia/Poison. 15 seconds is plenty of time, enough to severely injure/kill the boss if you are prepared.

Head Size goes through Stoneskin without breaking it. RUN has very good chances to survive with SS, capped DT-, Phalanx, Barfira, Cocoon, Regen etc.
Dahak can be silenced to lock Nullsong.
AC burn still works.

With a pld tank I suppose cureskin works the same if whm keep it up full time?

Conduit burn works with two summoners on VD. Kill boss before aura goes up.

Only an Asura player would be worrying about idris

Not really. They're describing a zerg scenario, so knowing how potent of buffs you need is entirely viable. If this was a slow burn fight, asking about Idris would be absurd, but when you have less than a minute to win it, an extra 100 acc and such could be a deal breaker.

4 min fights with RUN(tank and Shockwave spam), BRD(buffs and Aeolian spam), heavy DD(to focus on boss w/ single target WS), THF(aeolian, occasional single target), BLU(Cirlce Blade spam), GEO.

As long as you are constantly ripping the AoE WSs until the boss is down its pretty fool-proof, and 4 minute wins on D without having the need for a WHM is definitely greater than a slower strat on VD more dependent on setup.

More dependent on setup yes, slower no. As number of video on YouTube are already doing 4 min VDs without sp.

No. Almost every weapon type has one or the other, though.

I'm afraid there isn't.

Maybe you could make 2 WS macro that way :

1) WS "Circle blade" <t>
equip main "Random dagger"

2) WS "Aeolian Edge" <t>
equip main "Random sword"

I really doubt that it would work though, in terms of delay.

Good thought on the WHM-less for runs below VD, I think most everything is single target when not aura'd.

Really not that complicated, standard set up, brd and cor do respective AoE (or 2 cors, 1 dagger 1 sword etc )and a DD kills the boss, it only has ~600k hp on D

Only issue is tank not dying to throatstab

Eh, that sucks. Guess 2 people need to be dedicated to their WSes. On D+ do people stagger out the WSes so that all of them don't get the aura back at the same time?

You pretty much just have the brd full time spamming AE and cor/run doing circle blade and shockwave. You can't stagger the ws' because all the add's auras have to be off in order to remove the bosses aura.
