    Dynamis Valkurm

    Hi,

    I was wondering the linkshells that do Dynamis-Valkurm regularly, which NM's do you recommend killing before engaging the megaboss. I have cleared it by killing just fairy ring > boss as well as fairy ring > nan'tina > boss. Yesterday we did Valkurm and we killed Nan'Tina and we still got charmed (still cleared though). We dont really do dreamlands that much so I was just wondering if people think killing Nan'Tina is worth it?

    Thanks

    Last successful boss run I did, we killed that one treant NM. Is it a treant? I forget.

    Anyway, we killed that NM by konschtat zone. No other NMs, ignored Fairy Ring, just did CS+stun & zerg on the boss.

    We always kill Fairy Ring and N'antina, I'm sure it's possible to do without killing either, it's just more risky during the boss fight.

    This is how my ls normally does it as well.

    The NM at Konschtat is a Goobbue. The treant is up at the zone to La Theine. Also there's a flytrap at the secret beach.

    I've wondered about what effects one gets from killing the treant or the flytrap, but it seems silly to waste a Dynamis run on testing it at the moment. Maybe once the price reduction comes around, there can be more science.

    Only done Valkurm once with my linkshell but that's what we did and it was successful.

    Killing the NMs does not completely disable the megaboss' moves, but it makes them unusable until the megaboss has 100 TP. My linkshell has done Valkurm a few times in the past month and we kill Fairy Ring > Gobbue NM > Megaboss.

    We've done Valkurm several times, and this has always been our strategy as well.

    We kill Goobbue and Treant. Fairy Ring is retardedly strong and not really worth the hassle.

    He's a piece of cake if you know what you're doing. But I'll agree there is some potential for some serious lulz with im if you're stupid.

    Goobbue & Treant, for the time and effort it takes to kill the Fairy Ring, it's just not worth it. And of all the abilities to remove, iirc the breath attack is the easiest to stun over all.

    As far as still getting charmed goes, killing the NM's lessens the chance of those abilities being used, not eliminates the chance of those abilities getting used.

    Same here, although I'm sure we could get away with not doing fairy ring. If you have extra time, you should do them both.

    Re: Dynamis Valkurm

    Only times my LS won was when we did the Treant and Goober. Fairy Ring really just took too much time and resources. We looked at parses and saw that the Treant killing really did cut down on TP attacks made, so that plus killing the Goobbue for charm and giving everyone antidotes was the trick. Of course it's also luck, and good CS stunning.

    Re: Dynamis Valkurm

    Interesting, my LS normally does Ring + Goob, in about 30-40mins, however if we can cut that time down by not doing fairy ring and doing treant instead then I guess we're gonna do a new strat next valk!

    Re: Dynamis Valkurm

    You have to kill the beastmen until the cave to get to the Goobbue, but you can have one person hug the wall down to grab the NM instead of trying to get 35 others to not aggro. Plus, if you fight it by the cave entrance, charmga shouldn't make you aggro manticores where it camps.
