Thread: Ninja tanking Omega...     submit to reddit submit to twitter submit to tumblr

  1. #1

    Ninja tanking Omega...

    is it possible to solo tank him? The airship battle omega fight is tough for a Ninja with all his shadow wiping moves....

    Does anyone have tips or strats to work around a NIN tank? I am a WHM this fight cause WHM is needed for stona. (only one with whm 60 ;

    Help please, I've lost this fight about 15+ times ><;

    with only 1 BLM able to stun... is there any other way?

    Also should the NIN be spamming Elemental wheel?

    5 vials of the CCB Polymer stuff. ^_^

    How to get 'em:

    Client: Cid (Cid's Lab, Metalworks)

    Summary: You've learned from the Tenshodo that Chief Cid is collecting rare colored chips found in the ruins of Pso'Xja. Bring him a set of three (one carmine chip, one gray chip, and one cyan chip) to receive your reward.

    I had no problem with ultima or omega =\ if your with a bard have him sing double mambo songs and you shouldnt really get hit at all.

    A good hasted BLM to stun should be fine. We only used one melee for Omega/Ultima, which was our NIN tank. Didn't bother burning any polymers on Omega, used a few on Ultima. IMO Ultima is much tougher in a mage setup.

    I tanked this thing as Pld and it made me want to cry, honestly. He's a pain in the ass.

    Then I fought it a couple times with a Nin tanking with x2 mambo & went, wtf that's not fair.

    Honestly, this thing's accuracy is so piss poor a Rng could probably straight tank him with x2 mambo.

    Nin + Brd ftw.

    try *gasp* changing your armor as pld into an evasion setup and you'll be good too. Use double mambo, blind potion with bat earrings(which also give MP) etc, and you'll still be able to dodge his moves. If you gear up as a straight tanker to a mob that hits heavily, well that's like using a boat to ram into a shark, instead of using a net to catch it.

    Evasion build nin + 2mambo + fenrir eva up
    you will get auto-perfect dodge kinda :/


    anyway i won with 1 nin and no brd or smn at pt
    whm rdm blm rng rng nin

    2x rng stun bullet all time... switch to silver Slugshot and back to stun bullets
    and blm spam stun whenever he can
    won easy

    Omega is pretty easy to tank with NIN, we had no BRD or BLM and won on our 3rd try after we sorted out a stragety...NIN had next to no trouble. I also think we only used 1 CCB.

    dear god you want a ninja for this. I had no problem with it.


    I remember they were blaming my fucking tanking because we kept losing (they said tarutaru hp to weak LAWL) and i said shitty whm who sucks balls and can't keep up.


    this went on for about 6 tries and then we booted the whm, got azjol and won on the first try \(^_^)/

    I think 2 ccb is good number for this bc. Use one when Omega starts using pile pitch and use one on ultima when it does that spin thing. I beat this bc like 4 times, always used nin tank for this.

  18. #18

    We did it with a WAR/NIN tanking... that was lots of fun.

    WAR, WHM, BRD, RNG, DRK and BLM.

    We wiped once towards the end of omega but we didn't use any Polymers on him and we won the BC with time to spare.

    Second time I did this I did it with a PLD/WAR who maxed out his eva gear. Didn't wipe once and owned the BC. Sure NIN would make life very easy indeed.

    I wouldn't say Pld is obsolete, I have beaten Omega straight tanking but you need to have a strong DD setup backing you because Pld just isn't going to take the hits as well.

    When he gets low health even mambo'd on Pld I would want to burn out invincible for him due to his attack speed.

    I wouldn't say Pld is obsolete at all but there are simply some fights where Pld tanking is not going to be as viable an option. It is certainly do-able as Pld, but the amount of Mulsum & other items you are going to burn through isn't worth it compared to the easier side of Nin, for this fight.

    My static for this BC was quite shitty and we had a PLD that was one of those "noble fellows" that figured straight-tank over all. After we lost 8 times because trying to meat-shield the BC is a fucking horrible strategy, I bought the guy 50 (yes) hi-potions for the whole airship fight. I told him to stfu and spam his macro everytime he got below 100% HP because I was tried of losing.

    Piece of cake win. I would actually recommend (PLD + 30 HiPots) > Ninja. But yes a good NIN will easily easily tank this.
