    Ridiculously lame CoP question

    What's the bare minimum number of people we can do Tenzen Path Pso'Xja shit with?

    For reference, the answer I'm looking for is "NIN + BLU and this is how:"

    Don't let me down BG!

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    I've done it with 4, PLD WAR MNK WHM, without much trouble, and could probably do it with less. Hell, I'd say a NIN and RDM could duo it if you're careful and don't get adds. Just have NIN check walls for sound aggro, and have mage check walls for magic aggro. Obviously need RR. The downside is of course with NIN you're pretty much forced to fight at every door, and if you get more than one mob, could get dicey depending on what mobs we're talking about.

    It should be duo-trioable by skilled players (NIN + BRD/RDM), just gotta be very careful near doors so you don't get links from the other room when popping the door mobs. Not too sure about how well BLU would do as a duo partner.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    I've been considering making a topic about low manning CoP missions but since Sath made one thats like that, i might as well ask it here. I recently created a new char and really not looking forward to redoing all the CoP missions so I was wondering if anyone could give me a run down of the CoP missions up to the uncapped fights of which ones are possible to be low manned?

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    The second part of that path can be soloed. The 16 doors nope. Maybe if the nin and blu have 2-3 friends come and you ignore them being there I guess it counts as a duo lol.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    Tried nin + whm duo and got owned about 6 doors in by adds, otherwise we were doing ok. I wouldn't go with less than 3 tbh, just making something painful even more painful.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    Trioed: blm/whm, nin/war, thf/nin, bring RR and 2 stacks of skelly keys. I just missed 2 or 3 locks as thf, and we wiped once to a cryptoberry + hectaeye link, but we managed to clear it in the end.

    Hella fun

    I'm in the same situation as Falisa here. My new character isn't looking forward to all the missions again. Low-manning would be hot.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    The first time I did the doors, our THF only missed one. The second time, our THF (different person) only hit one. I still definitely think it's worth it to try, if you can bring a THF. I guess theoretically a THF with reraise might be able to solo it? I don't know if you can let the door mob depop and succeed after failing a pick (and if it works like chests, you'd have to unweaken first too).

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    A Thief with Skeleton Keys makes that mission a whole lot easier. I strongly recommend bringing a Thief, cuts the time it takes to do the mission in half.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    Not sure how useful this will be but:
    BST using one of the hecteyes really adds a ton to any group doing this. I did this before they updated Sic recast and I would try to space out its melee so that I could use a Sic when it had no tp. 3 out of 4 times it did Tornado. Most other times it had tp which was still awesome because it used Petro Gaze frequently. The half hour time limit on familiar puts a damper on things though. Later on you find another hecteyes so it might be smarter to do the first 1 or two set of doors with a jug and use the higher level one to familiar which will then probably last through to the end.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    I've done CoP twice and can honestly say it wont happen again unless other people need help and my 3'rd happens to be on that mission.
    Anyway, from memory/what I did;

    1-1/1-3: A full party is probably best for these
    2-3: Bring a THF to pick the lock. 2 BST's 2 houring Slimes can rock its socks, you just have to have someone to hold hate who can spam holy waters.
    2-5: Unless they ninja fixed this, its possible to low man the battle. Have someone get aggro and die by the entrance while everone is still in CS, then pick off the mamets 1x1. Just make sure that you have NO ONE use pet jobs since that fucks this up.
    3-5: Full party or at least 5 with a DRK who's got god's stun finger.
    4-2: Get some SMN or/and BLM's friends who want free XP and go freeze burn his ass
    4-3: BST"s own again here, but for Prof. Mar you probably want to lure a panty party to kill him.
    5-2: I did promy Vhazl with 5, a decent geared MNK can rape 1.5 of the bosses before dying if you can keep it alive that long. (I dual boxed this one, to give you an idea)
    5-3: Others gave inights to the 'easy' of Pso'Xja. I know that the mammet 'trick' used to work with the moblins, not sure if it does not again. They're really, really easy to super tank though; I did this with 4. Snoll: Apparently this has been nerfed to hell, I did it x2 when it was still in 'rape your grandmother who's dead' mode.
    6-4: Take a blu and utlima and omega are kittens. KITTENS.

    After 6-4 just gather up friends who are bored and want free xp. No xp loss anymore = who the hell cares if you take 6 WHM's to kill Tenzen? If it works its all the funnier.

    We just did 6-4 on Wednesday with Atum on BLU. Holy crap BLU is hot for that fight. For Omega I tried to Head Butt TP moves with very little success- the charge up time seemed very short and it was a bit laggy in there. On Ultima I just Head Butted every time it was up, a lot less TP moves got through since it has such a short recast time. Also you can alternate Head Butt, Sickle Slash, Head Butt, Mandibular Bite for lots of damage. (And hate.)

    But yeah, BLU rachs nads on the first airship BC. BLU also works really well for Diabolos and Moblins.

    I was told diabolos built up/resisted blu's stuns more than DRK's. If thats wrong then well, hot damn.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    I did 3-5 on my Ninja with a group of 6. We went in with a blu and a drk. I never had trouble putting my shadows up once because our BLU used Head Butt generously, i.e. when my shadows went down. Our Whm d/ced halfway through the fight and the fight remained smooth. I don't remember the BLU being resisted at all, but my memory is a bit fuzzy because it was a while ago. It was the first time I realized BLU is a CoP Killer.

    Re: Ridiculously lame CoP question

    Lower levels Blu is probably one of the most potent jobs out there that's why it wrecks stuff badly in level caps.
