Hello FFXIAH. I've been wondering if it's possible to solo Chloris. I've been soloing popsets on my Ninja, with little failures. (Yay for Chukwa being an ***) Verethragna has always been a "dream" if you will. But it being the only Empy that nobody wants to build, I kind of forgot about it. So no matter how many people I "help" they all seem to disappear at the mention of Chloris. Hm. I'm worried about it's doom attack. Could a /dnc stun that in time?

So, tell me. Am I in over my head on this one?
Dual boxing is also out of the question, I'm on xbox.
All information/suggestions are helpful.

No idea why so many people fear this nm. It is retardedly easy. Bring hallowed water/holy waters and it's acc is horrid.

I think stunning it would be difficult... holy water spam would be good.

You could probably shout and find a WHM to come help you, as they drop Augur's Gloves and some WHM AF+2 mats. If they stand at max curing distance from you (with Chloris positioned on the other side), they won't get hit with doom and can spam cursna.

That said, I'd bring Holy Waters anyway. Good luck!

I guess I'm just worrying about losing a pop.
I'll be sure to give it a go, I appreciate it. :)

1) its pretty easy to solo. Anything thats a decent soloer can do it. Like mentioned bring holy waters.

2) If you are super worried, you can grab a doom screen from the dom ops people and a brew just in case.

From my experience, this NM is a really easy kill. Melee it with a thf so you get the drop and make sure you have a whm or a /whm to spam cursna on the thf. You only need these 2 people. Anyone else that comes is only there to try and proc for other drops / atma.
The only reason I can think of why people might run, is if they think you need help farming the pop set. That is a horrible way to spend a day.

So I'm guessing the best "solo" choice would be on nin?

For the farming of the pop sets.
Nin/war using apoc/rr/mc atmas.

For the actual NM fight.
Thf/nin using the same atmas as above.
Be sure you load up on all temp items before each pop,
and have a couple stacks of holy waters on you and macroed.

This will give you the best chance at x2 buds dropping per fight.
If for some reason this strategy does not work for you. Then Nin/dnc will be your best option. however using Thf/nin will hopefully give you a chance at 50% less pop sets you have to build.
