    Faust done with Ninja

    Anyone else ever done this? We managed to kill Faust with only seven people and one Ninja by keeping him in Minne and exploiting "the glitch" as much as possible. Full set up was NIN, RNG, BLM, BLM, WHM, BRD, BRD.

    We just took the only thing Paladins get to do in our LS away from them

    My linkshell has done Faust with Ninjas at the helm several times. Hate management is a lot iffier but it can still be done without too much trouble. Arhat+1, Earth Staff, and whatever else a Ninja uses to tank tough NMs is the gear I see used all the time. Give the NIN some time to build hate and it's pretty solid.

    And I was pissed as hell when I learned our LS's NINs could do Faust, but meh, what can you do? Our edge lies somewhere else I guess.

    Until they come up with Raise as a ninjutsu. That would be hard on PLDs.

    there is a glitch where if you push your back against the wall faust will move around, its hard to show w/o a map or sumtin. but you can manage to kill faust w/o him ever attacking you if you do it right.

    Basically what s/he said though the chances of someone having the dexterity to pull it off perfectly are very slim.

    I have done this but it's very tricky. Me and a fellow Ninja were kitted out in full Physical Damage Taken -xx% and VIT gear holding him for a few minutes till the rest of our LS showed. It's bad enough that he spams shadow stripping Crystal Rain but he attacks so fast and doesn't like to be debuffed... he's pretty much everything a Ninja shouldn't tank. We won as NIN, NIN, RNG, WAR, WHM, WHM with me and Toyer terribly close to death at the end.
