Easier way to farm Stygian Zinogre?

#1ShadowNargacugaPosted 4/13/2013 3:21:19 PM
Soloing him is so frustrating. The fight takes 29min and I use up almost everything just to kill it. Now I just need his Skymerald and he's done. Any suggestion?

My strongest weapon and armor right now is:

Helios Z with Evasion +1,Sharpness +1,HGE,Water Attack +1 and Speed Recovery.

Weapon: Demolition Gunlance

Do the dual quest. It's much more efficient (time wise and material wise).

Also, Helios Z isn't the best set considering it has -35 dragon, and 90% of Stygian's attacks are dragon-based.

I haven't tried lancing him honestly (GL or otherwise). He's pretty dang fast.

I did just make the Agnaktor Z though for my primary lancing set (Guard +2, Guard inc, and Mind's eye is just too good to pass up). You'll still need dash juices though, as his dragon orb attack depletes stamina like nothing.

Maybe try not to evade lance him ;)

With the GL, and being that it's noticeably slower than the lance and lacks proper hops, you're better off with a guard set. (make the Z set as I suggested and just block everything).

You're better off doing the dual quest, that is if you want a Skyemerald. (More carves, less health, better rewards).
