    6 man Cerberus and Jorm (on Page 7)

    Well, Cerb popped at about 1 am PST today, and no linkshells were gunning for it. 6 people were awake in my shell, so we said what the hell and decided to take it on. This was mostly an experimenting time, to see if we could handle it with 6, etc etc.

    Party setup was:
    NIN/DRK
    PLD/NIN
    WHM/BLM
    RDM/DRK
    SMN/WHM
    BRD/WHM (2 box by ninja)

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...6manCerb01.jpg

    With this setup, we were doing about 20% damage per half hour.

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...6manCerb02.jpg

    Unfortunately we wiped at 58%, RDM was dealing with a Fire Elemental (which I've never seen pop before, at least while fighting Cerb), and during rebuff from WHM, the PLD was taken down. I tried to solo tank while he waited for weakness to wear, but I just couldn't keep up

    I'm fairly confident this setup could kill from 100>0 if it doesn't spam Gates.. but that seems unlikely so I would change the WHM to /DRK, and idealy have another NIN/DRK, but I think 3 stuns should be enough. Although I am very keen on WHM/BLM for elemental seal.

    So anyone else had any luck with low man Cerb? He isn't that hard of a mob, so I figured it would be rather feasible.

    Some things of note:

    I landed bind as NIN/DRK about 50% of the time, which made me laugh.

    The first half and hour, stun did not get resisted once by me, but after I had about 30% resist rate.

    If you were looking for a hold party, this setup would more than likely do it forever.

    It was really late, and I wish I would of had my fire resist set for blaze spikes, they did the majority of the damage / mp use.

    When I went NIN/DRK on Cerb nearly all my binds landed as well, I got a huge kick out of it also.

    I usually can't lind bind on EP's /drk but all the time on cerb, so much sense.

    JP ls pulled after us with 7, PLD PLD WHM RDM RDM BRD WAR.

    BRD has Gjallarhorn, WAR has Bravura.

    Wiped at 95%.

    I felt good.

    The lesson here?

    Landing bind on Cerberus is very very important.

    Now the JP know.

    WHM/DRK or NIN/DRK for Stun on Cerb are very unrealiable. Using DarkStaff I can get somewhere like 70% Stun rate but thats nowhere near good for a GoH.

    Stun is lightning based, but I agree it is very unreliable.

    Random question while watching JP fight right now. One of their RDM's is 24.0 from Cerb, spamming Poison 2. To my knowledge the max cast for Poison 2 is 20.7xxx, any ideas wtf is going on?

    edit>> Used stun too..

    No idea, but it looks as if Aquarius is up on your server.

    You should kill him, maybe he'll drop one of his axes.

    Yes you're a shithead that uses distancer plugin and I hope you get banned for it, and everyone else who uses it too.

    AoE, casting and aggro ranges are something that should be learned with time, not automatically with a plugin.

    Uneven terrain making you seem farther away than you actually are?

    Says the guy who went to JoL as NIN/DRK and tried to bind, poison, and even stun it to get hate, lol.

    No, I'm pretty sure it's not due to uneven terrain.

    @Everlasting you might wanna kill yourself or something, or at least quit the game, you are way too emo this early in the morning.

    Cerb pen is pretty flat though. Slight deformation I suppose. Black magic seems to have a slightly farther range than white magic though, 24.0 isn't unresonable since I can usually cast from 23.7ish.

    Max cast range is usually around 21.0, but on larger monsters it is occasionally longer. For example, in limbus you can cast at 23.0 or possibly even 24.0 on the Behemoths.

    Edit: ROFL, this is my first post in months, so I just noticed the little description under my name. My post count is {Too weak}
