    Ash Dragon Strategy

    Been trying to kill Ash for a while now... have wiped 5 times nows and just can't seem to get the strategy down. I've seen no videos or tips so I'll tell you what we've been trying and perhaps someone can help expand. We've been bringing 2 nin and 2 thiefs, and an assortment of 14 other people. Set one party to handle pulling bombs away, and have the rest go on Ash. We do it in sets... one nin and one thf tank and do damage until they fall, then other nin and thief replace. Try to avoid building a lot of tp, keep rangers to a minimum etc. Yet it seems every single time we get screwed by a random bomb pop, or both nin and thf getting wiped/weakened. Is there a better way to handle this?

    I think when we did this the NIN practically solo'd it. I think the more people you bring, the harder it's going to be. I can't specifically remember this fight, but NIN tank is definately the way to go.

    where are you pulling ash dragon to?



    The few times i killed it, had like 7-8 people only lol

    BLM can sleep/nuke the bombs and have 2 nin tanking instead of 1. Wind staff instead of earth staff and mambo.

    Kill it with like 6 ppl, like we did ^.^ much easier when you control his tp and just hold the bombs.

    We have several bards... at least 2 or 3, the bombs seem to bite us in the ass no matter what we do.. and Paladins can't trypically tank ash, not any I've found.

    we killed the ash dragon for hitaru

    He could not afford the talon because it went up in price so we all got together and decided to go up there and kill it with him.. Felt good doing something for a friend.

    Me and some friends killed it like 2 months ago cause we wanted the title T_T, whm whm rdm brd thf pld nin. When we aggrod bombs, pld (nin sj) pulled it back and solod it, every time they blew up he survived. Pld would go in every once in awhile and spirits within. Ninja and thief did all the damage to it and it wasn't a short fight...

    Any attack job with nin sub is safe to melee it I think, it does a move regularily that's absorbed by utsusemi (2 shadows iirc) but messes you up bad if you don't have blink up. Some rdm running past us for the zm headstone got 1shot by it and so did our taru whm when he got too close.

    I heard it drops dragon talon 100%, we got one at least 8)

    RE

    Less TP is better~ We killed it with NIN, WHM, BRD, RDM, RDM, BLM I think. WHM and NIN pretty much duo'd Ash Dragon (BLM nuked some at the end ). The rest were there for adds. It took a long time though.

    Talon isn't 100%. We only got heart thingy.

    tip

    the key is to control Ash Dragon's TP. Bring along a smn,brd,nin,nin,rdm,and a blm(more if you want). Have smn use bloodpacts for dmg and have blm nuke sparingly. also have only 1 ninja attacking because his TP move sucks as i'm sure you know. Have bard ready to cast double mambo at all times for nin and it should be a nice steady fight.


    note: this is not the fastest way to kill Ash Dragon, but imo, the safest. Good luck and I hope you are succesful.
