Ive never seen a DRG or MNK fight it. It's always 1 PLD or WAR tanking, and 4-5 BLMs 2 WHMs and maybe a BRD back in the corner. If a DRG or MNK were to fight it, the only thing I could see working is if you stand where the tank stands and avoid the boss moves just like the tank has to. The downside is, you'll require cures, which the healers might not be able to afford due to enmity and MP restraints. I'm sure it's doable, but risky.
Thanks for the video zazz9! I wish we were on the same server. And thanks to Avulus for the tips. I imagine the similar strategy in the video applies for Dragoons as well.
To answer to Mr. Potato: I'm tired of doing Cuter's Cry runs with jobs I don't like. I want to play with the job I like and not stuck always in the same position, and If the battle is possibile for a MNK then I'm sure It is for a DRG too. =) Any video on that, zazz9?
^ I don't have a video of a DRG doing Chim off the top of my head but it would just be the same thing. You actually take very little damage as melee if you tank him in the middle... you just have to hug his side or avoid his tail..... as his tail does some poison tail move.
