Might not be an issue on bigger servers, but on small servers there will be a lack of solid Ninjas. SE hasn't updated it in such a long time that many players haven't bothered to keep it geared, so if you find any Ninjas they may not be as strong as other jobs.

As Ruau said in his video, it is not an essential job for this. Does it make it easier? Sure, but it shouldn't be a necessity to making a group. I was kiting this on Rune and it's doable, but you don't have much time to stop. It's easy to get caught out if the Astrologer's are not silenced. This can lead to an unexpected Triple Reversal late in the fight when it wears.

I think you need to be killing the boss quickly to make the kite method work, because the longer you take, the more likely an Astro will lose silence and lag behind to give them an opportunity. The only way to stop this is having an exceptional RDM who knows exactly when Silence wears and is in position to reapply.

Why geo in particular?

I didnt try this ambuscade and im not sure if i will but considering the selling point on GEO is mainly malaise or frailty/fury, this relevance is reduced given due Qutrub characterist, you dont need much to cap dmg. The video above shows a party killing pretty fast without any GEO, so i guess this option is as viable as anything else, but far from optimal.

Hey guys! It has been a while!
Is it possible to solo-multibox V1 this month? short answer is yes! The method I'm using is super tank and SMN mew. Unfortunately, I'm only able to do D due to having an under-geared PLD. (no Ochain getting hit like a truck)
If you want to know more check out this video I recorded today.

Isn't this just 5 bots and you? this all looks completely automated.

It's cool to look at and gives players an idea what they can do though.

Well, setting 5 bots is a lot of work by itself!

I meant geoDD for fun just to see how dmg can go for this job here.
Can still use eva+ bubble or ***like that at the same time.

Couldn't you instead of Tank + SMN use BLU+GEO?
GEO: idris BoG+EA Wilt. atk-124.25%
BLU: Scouring Spate: AoE atk-20%. lasts 3min.
Reaving Wind: AoE TP-1000. 90s recast(18s cap)
can even /smn for an extra tp reset each minute.

Or just... tank+whm both /smn... You can get by with every 30s, especially you maintain cureskin with HP drops to keep the WHMs mp pool healthy.

Anyone noticing an unusual number of POL crashes in this ambuscade? Something doesn't jive with the qutrubs, but I can't imagine what.

Made a video from Xolla's strategy for the NA/EU community, that explains most things in more detail.

Enjoy the new META, PALADIN/SUMMONER baby.
Seriously though, check it out it's really good
Godspeed

Nice datsik, it would be also very useful to get more into what is needed for the pld

I mean a burtgang is not something to pick up.

Curious what could work as alternatives.

I’m having a hell of a time multiboxing this month primarily due to the 30% and lower phase. Mob management becomes a major hassle for how I play. Can slowly and reliably do D but VD just has too many adds :(

Thx man, you have a few options stated above ^^
Even malignance sword probably works fine.
There's a ***ton of swords out there to use for sure.
Also the gear Im using is probably waaay for from optimal, I just slapped every fcking block rate I could find that didnt gimp me too much and tried it :P and I've just been sticking with it since it works just fine.
I can prob cap pdt add more mag eva and mag def bonus or just HP and w/e

Other notes: You should have your RDM Phalanx2 with your phalanx gear on. It will be more potent(RDM will hit the cap you won't) and last a lot longer. With good enough gear on your RDM it should last 10ish minutes.

Today I wanted to see if I could go beyond V1 Difficult with my current gear on PLD and here is the result. I'm using kiting method mix with mewing this time. PLD sub thf for flee (no tacos or cheeseburger needed). Without Ochain or Priwen my PLD won't stand a chance super tanking in VD so kiting is the only way. Silence was almost impossible to land without SP so i gave up after a few cast and settle with addle 2 instead. check it out in this video and enjoy :)

PS: It's very difficult to pull this off as a multiboxer so I recommend doing D if you're only after points :)
Also the main difference in VD is the hate reset mechanic. anyone who act on the boss will need to run in around 30% or it will go after you!

What job was trying to land silence? I haven't had any issues as RDM/NIN silencing the Astrologers. I do have to Saboteur it on them so it lasts long enough to kill the Bigwig without them unsilencing, though.

Silence can be landed on the big boss, it just takes a couple to three immunobreak procs.

If you're constrained for time or doing other things, Slow & Addle works well enough on the big boss. I did a group and was told not to silence and another group never said anything about it when I did it.
