Yes Sechs, thing is if the silence isn'tfast enough (resists, not getting the msg) it still lands.
There's a lot going on this month, i like it.

Yeah, that is how you silence the MB. Debuff him 4 times for the “croak” message then he is susceptible to silence. It’s stated throughout this thread and even at the top of this page. It’s also on the BG wiki strategy page for this months ambu

My apologies for not noticing the information in the thread previously. At least now this guves me a better understanding of the fight. I don't mind personally, but this still seems like a lot of work for your "average" group/pick-up.

D is not that bad once you find the rythm.

Next month will likely be the Moogle. That's probably the worst ambuscade ever.

We've repeatedly tried to beat this on VD with fat SC's to burst down the fish and it just never works - it may not be outright impossible, but I'm sick of bashing our head against the wall with it. We wiped half a dozen times on 1 hour attempts last night trying this.

Going to try simple auto-attacking on the fish method tonight after dyna. Other things to note from the video are that the RUN uses thunder Gambit on the first fish, and thunder rayke on the second - by the time they're on the third fish, gambit is back up to repeat. When we first tried the enthunder strat, we were getting enough resists/lowball damage that I don't think we were quite getting high enough to reset the mob's HP. I was a dumb*** though and didn't think to gambit/rayke. Also after looking at our VOD from last night, the fish clearly level up immediately after being weapon-skilled. After they level up ~3+ times, they're basically unkillable.

They're also waiting until the kraken mighty strikes before they start dropping any skillchains - which obviously makes sense, but was just another point we were failing to execute. We go into dyna about 9 PM EST and will be trying this again tonight ~11:15 pm est if anyone is bored and wants to watch us stream it. Pretty confident we'll get some wins with these adjustments. https://www.twitch.tv/lwardenl

This is what I've found, too. D requires a bit of coordination but it's not *that* bad. WHM needs to curebomb and GEO needs to enfeeble the Songstress plus the adds plus keep dispelling. DDs don't matter so much, we've done D with one of the best samurai on the server, but we swapped him out for my BLU alt and were still able to win comfortably. Just need to be diligent about switching into hybrid and DT sets.

Every PUG that I've joined has been a disaster on D and above, of course. Asking pickup GEOs on Asura to do anything more than just bubble and afk is too much.

I have found DRG to be especially useful in this fight. Have been using some Enm- gear in my WS sets, including Kaja Grip, and running a fulltime hybrid set. It's less DPS overall, but the added survivability has really shown with the Spinning Fin/Hate reset spam. Have always been able to keep my hate off consistently with spamming Stardiver SCs/Impulse Drives with cycling in High Jumps. Being able to throw out the occasional Restoring Breath + Super Jumps really helps out your tank during the hate reset

hmm I remember this fight not being too terrible with pet setup last time around. I know the hp is much higher now, but I remember fighting this on VD quite a bit because I remember the kraken... I don't remember exactly how we did it though.

probably just had 1 bst or pup fight each add solo, with pet tanking and master making skillchains on them


probably used overdrive to tear thru them quickly also.

3x overdrive pups will tear down the adds very quickly. and each pet player manages an add so they don't get ganged up on.

Not sure if thats how it went but guessing from hazy memories.

Trying to knock out as many points as possible this weekend. I’d like to try Normal 3-man. Is there anything I’m missing:

Run to middle. Horde. Ignore songstress. While killing each add spam dispel with GEO. Keep things slept. Win?

I don’t mean to simplify. Just want to key the highlights. Anything I’m missing?

That's the jist of it. Try not to get facerolled by counters if you fight the mnks.

99% of all N failures are impatience. They kill the DRGs then.... wait.... but wait too long, grab a mnk, drg spawns aoe stun and wipe.

For everyone that said "*** this month" don't forget your total marks seal

next month looks like it might be the froggie again. Based solely on the costume and the staff in the pics.
