    Tarutaru RNG Woes

    Ok, I'm having quite a few problems here. My job and my race do not mix well in any area concerned with staying alive (at least until 74 for Ni). I've got complete garbage HP (current wearing full AF and NIN SJ is 864 @Lv70), the unability to deal even decent damage with Bow (Tarutaru worst STR, and that's one of the damage modifiers of Bow) to the point of where a Holy Bolt w/ Added Effect outdamages anything I do with a Bow, and very low VIT and DEF proven when Zipacna(sp I think) hit me three times and I died.

    I'm even having problems beating Maat, which is pretty much why I'm writing this. The last time I fought Maat, he EES'd me for 654 damage. That's over 75% of my life. Each of his RAtks did around 100-120, and his melee attack did about 100. By the time I was able to make an action after my shot, I was hit with a melee attack and with a ranged attack. I was around 670 HP. I then Slug Shot him, which prompted his 2hr to knock me to around 20 HP. Before I could Shadowbind after my WS, he'd already melee'd me again and I was dead.

    I have no HP. I'm worthless without NIN SJ. Tarutaru RNG suck at this fight. I've got the following things I'm trying next time:

    1. Screw the Fransisca, Equipping Earth Staff. Thinking maybe that 20% damage reduction will at least save my ass long enough to toss my hipots.
    2. Bringing a Blink Band. As much as I hate not having my AF Hat (with Gun sometimes I think it's better than wearing Optical, but I've yet to get that [cluster is ready]), I'd wear that just to be able to get some fake shadows up. If it lasts as long as regular Blink, and has a low recharge time (don't remember atm, I'm at the library between exams), I'd be able to Blink myself and let it recover before I go in to pull him. I could Shadowbind to start, take one Ranged Attack shot (hopefully hitting a shadow), jam Slug Shot, and maybe, just maybe the gods that control SE will let a shadow take his Eagle Eye. Maybe.
    3. And stop using Gun, because Othinus' Bow can kick his ass anyway. The only thing I'm worried about with Gun is if Slug Shot -> Heals -> Icarus -> Slug Shot -> Eagle Eye doesn't kill him due to something randomly missing and screwing me over. Then I'd have to get a Barrage in--Gun's long firing time doesn't help much here.

    Too bad I don't have any backup plans after that. I've got the usual melee setup too--Opo-Opo Necklace, 4 Sleep Pots (actually using 12 though to make sure my initial Slug Shot doesn't miss and make me want to throw controller at the wall), Icarus Wing, and a bunch of Hi-Potions. Oh, and if anyone wants to suggest Sleep Bolts, they don't always stick on Maat and are a risk. Sorry Koy.

    Tarutaru have no HP. I can't stand this fight, and I don't want to lose and have to run my ass over to Davoi again to get another Testimony.

    Eh, good plan. Didn't think about that. Just the regular crab or fishkabob, or is there anything better out there?

    duno cause iam mage what meat and fish add, but Boiled Crab adds 22,22% Defense, that can be a lot.
    did u try an evasion set too? i know blind will suck but blind (batearring)+15 2x +blind potion, and emp pin and some more maybe can help too
    btw congrats lvl 69/70 ;D

    Blinding myself would kill me.

    Slug Shot miss == death.

    Dude, this is one of the easiest battles in history. Let me explain to you what i did and STILL won.

    I went in naked (i've heard something about maat copying stats?) as a 70RNG Hume. I then slept to 150 TP using my opo opo necklace and then used a blink band (notice: You only need to have it equipped while you are using the blink ability, after you've got the effect on you, you can simply switch back to your war beret.) After i got 150 tp, i went to him and engaged, used Barrage + Sharpshot and "fired" a Slug Shot at him, wich i couldn't use cause i was too far away. I lost all TP. I was thinking that was it and used an Icarus wing to get TP back, then used Slug Shot wich hit, then i Shadowbinded him. As i binded, he used EES wich my shadows took away . Then i barraged him for 650 something, and i got 104 tp from it. I used Slug Shot immediatly, wich ofcourse missed. I followed that up with an Eagle Eye Shot and he was dead.

    All in all, i took about 200 dmg in this fight.

    That sounds exactly what I had already gathered and explained in my first post, thanks for trying to make me feel like a complete idiot nonetheless...

    Take Blink Band out, Pinball. Take that out and the reason why you'd pull it off is because you still have 200HP after being Eagle Eye'd.

    Blink Band was what made it all happen.

    Another Tarutaru thing--apparently two Slug Shots and an Eagle Eye Shot with Othinus' and Darksteel Bolts isn't enough to take him down. Barely got my Barrage in, but the bastard died.

    maats eagle eye did less than his normal shots on me. and since mithra vit is 2nd lowest he probably just crit on his EE. But now that blink bands can take EE for you it should be no problem
