    RNG/NIN, MNK/NIN, and RDM/WHM is best setup, imo. MNK goes ballistic on hume using Hundred Fists and WS whenever possible. Elvaan goes down just by hitting it. RNG goes nuts on mithra with slug>barrage>EES>slug. RDM beats down galka with Chainspell nukes. This setup kills the whole group in less than 7min.

    My group does something similar.. except RNG/NIN, WAR/NIN, and RDM/BLM o.o But same strategy pretty much.

    if you take a war/nin rng/nin rdm/blm combo and you are not taru, I would recommend taking the taru last...
    It sucks when you walk in, engage the taru, it takes the war's shadows down, then AMs >.>
    BOOM HEADSHOT

    NIN/RDM/RNG is what we always roll with. Just need two more Waetoto's and we never have to go back.

    Ever so slightly off topic, does anyone know if doing Automaton Assault stops you from doing the other ENM's in Mine Shaft such as the Bugbear one?

    they are seperate but if you have the Key Item from the Bugbear one you have to give up the Key Item to Warp there. or walk there normally and keep the Key Item.

    Our NIN makes quick work of the Mithra because he has capped throwing The galka we trade off with the Elemental Ni wheel and my occasional nukes. RDM getting 500+ damage from Thunder II is just freakin insane LOL.

    For our taru set up we go:

    NIN/WAR
    BLM/WHM
    WHM/BLM

    The only issue we had for a while was the mithra until we remembered that Ninja's can throw Shuriken. It's amazing to watch the Mithra's life bar go down so fast. We've done it four times so far but haven't seen a single earring. 5th run is tonight!!!

    Tell that to Wins and Minidragon and you'll see 2 more Taru's crying.
