    Jormungand!!! (help me out)!!

    Hello!! "Nice to meet you'!! I'm treystrife lvl 73 beastmaster from Valefor.
    I'm in a LS called yoji yojimbos.arcbattles.com weve defeated tiamat twice and have tried Jormungand 4 times and lost. I was wondering if you can give an input strategy. heres what i can come up with.
    This our LS leader zeldon scouting the area...

    Zeldon typed
    Ok so I scouted the area and here is how it went:

    1) I enter the large area where Jormungand spawns.

    2) This is slightly to the left of the entrance to Jimmy's area, as you can see it is a very thing hallway, but I don't think Jimmy's

    http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...irebrand/2.jpg

    More of this skinny hallway

    http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...irebrand/3.jpg

    On the way out of the hallway.

    http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...irebrand/4.jpg

    3) This area is the direct opposite wall of the thin hallway, a possible area to bring the main fight because this area has only 1 bomb (assuming that mob positioning is always constant).

    http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...irebrand/5.jpg

    4) This is where I think the main fight would be ideal, the nearly add-less area with the pronged rock formation:

    This is facing away from Jimmy's spawn area.

    The same position I was standing on but this time facing the fight area instead of Jimmy's spawn.

    More of the area.

    for those that dont understand jimmy is Jormungand in out term...

    weve tried both #2 and #4... which one did u guys try? also he keeps spaming blizzag III spells on us.constantly. Out strategy is basically. TA and SC while on the ground with MB. While in the air we Nuke and stun. Tanks are war/nin or Nin/war. Occasionally we put a pld to cover. usually they are the tank add's. We sue blm's to sleep bomb's and solo. I haerd you can use sleep bolts for the bombs and have rng sol

    If your question here is where do you fight him to stop enemies linking then you're gonna be 0/5 shortly. Maybe you should rethink your strategy so there is nothing to link.

    And wtf @ BLM's nuking while he's in the air.

    maybe so

    maybe so... like i said were new at this.. Jorm is totally different than tiamat. seem's like every camp there is add's all around. I gues it's how to manage them. we already 0/4 on him lol.... weve tried it... my question is not only where to fight him. It's basically how to deal with him. I think we got the add's down it's just him. It's jsut all of a sudden 4 bombs agro's and then 3 ele's pop. Kinda sucks....

    I don't know how to make it any clearer to you as to where your linkshell is going wrong without giving you a step-by-step strategy on how to defeat him (which I'm not going to do).

    Hey tray let Rare/Ex wipe, and before you can random with nakama steal it. Then you should be able to kill it.

    So which server did you kill Jorm on?

  10. #10

    The trick to beating him is to constantly pull the mobs that might aggro like you would in an exp party rather then letting them all build up on your alliance at once.

    No matter where you put Jormungand almost all mobs will aggro excluding maybe 1-2 mobs. SE designed this to be a pretty big challenge, can't get off easy with 2-3 adds.

    I don't really get the point of the post... you can't kill Jorm, so instead of modifying your strategy based on why you lose, you want the answers handed to you.

    I don't remember him doing that when we fought him. He did get way tougher at 20ish% though.

    the key to fighting and beating all 3 (4 if you count ouryu) wyrms is managing the environment.

    and yeah, jorm spams roar when he gets low

    Heh I just got some nasty /tells from somebudy in Yoji, the new Yojimbos shell. Maybe I will post the pics, but I think BG has enough drama as it is. I will give the Jourm strat again.

    Common strat for jorm is to gather all the bombs and have a team keep them a sleep the entire fight. they dont build up resistance... team should probably have some combination of blm brd rdm and whm, whatever ur LS has available.

    3 elementals... 1 can be used infinitely for TP, while the other 2 can be held by 1-2 RDMs. 1 will run into some troubles, so should have 2 or at least some help ready in case. Make sure the TP group / adds pt has at least a couple ppl paying attn that can stun w/e.

    i like holding jorm near the "long thin path" to the left of his spawn area, towards the ice lake... just a little past the mouth of that opening, although the exact spot doesnt really matter as long as he isnt breath atk'ing anyone... or hitting ppl with any AoE that dont need to be hit.

    One tactic to counter the horrid roar spam is to add extra tanks in the alliance when jorm is @20-25%, another 1-2, and have tanks keep maxed out enmity sets to use after a roar, to help get hate back more quickly. if things get really bad with 4 roars in a row or something, you may have to hit a quick sleep, or have everyone with hate come stand fafnir style... just make an executive decision to avoid a flail.

    of course these tips all have to be somehow applied to your specific LS style, jobs, and set ups.. but good luck anyway with the world serpent.

    Jormungand is a 1-time thing, you go up there, kill it, realize you wasted 1hr/2hrs, and wind up with some useless ores. It doesn't die on Remora besides a few sky linkshells that go up and feed it Jurassic Park style.
