just a quick note for anyone who's never tried it. 5 party members does not = 5 star rating lol. tried the 10~ dodo leve from ul'dah with a 5 person party, all 12-15 rank in their respective jobs and we got murdered. couldnt even down a single dodo. they were smackin us for 400+ and of course you fight them in pairs so yea.... dont do it! or do it at your own risk =P

I usually solo 2-3 star leves myself, and every once in a while I pick a 5 star. yeah theres no way stuff hits way too hard. Until players are at the point where they can absorb a few hits between heals, 5 stars are going to be for 3 healer groups.

Just did this same quest tonight with a group of 3 on 2 star and it was a bit rough, we got through it without trouble but there were a few moments where we got a bit low.

The Dodo leve is substantially harder than other leves of the same rank.

Punishing Barbs ftw. I'm just waiting on SE to nerf it.

So many hard leve monsters have basically killed themselves this way.

Big drawback though, is lack of SP gained this way. Which isn't an issue considering how random SP is.
