To be fair-
1) He was responding to the quote "Well I'm kind of afraid after getting killed numerous times on Ifrit in my AF..", so it was advice on the right boss and
2) He didnt really come off as an ***, all he did was say "Erm", and everything he said was true. He wasnt criticizing you particularly, if you read your post you say "DRG gets hit ALOT" like its just the way it is, he was merely pointing out that its not DRG that gets hit alot its that you are not familiar with the fight.
I think you shouldnt have called him an *** for providing useful information and doing so in a fair manner. He really didnt say anything negative about you, unless you really think the term "Erm" is that offensive.

What he said, sorry you took it so offensively, but honestly DRG should not be getting hit a lot in that fight. You mentioned ifirit and said you were scared of garuda.... Garuda has a lot more moves that hit everyone, and is a lot more to dodge than ifirit.
Aadrenry has it 100% right though, his reply was exactly why i replied.
Here is my honest recommendations:
Ifrit: have full AF gear + hq lvl 49 jewlrey + dl/gc weapon (i55)
Garuda: have full AK/WP gear (i55-60 mix) and i55 weapon,
Both can be done with way worse gear (non-weapon) as long as you know the fights. I have beaten both with DF on a regular basis.
titan: full i70 gear, want to have 3.5k + hp (full DL + garuda/ifirit weapon & +4 vit melded to all jewlery if you dont already have i70 jewlrey).
The worst ive ever run it, i had full ak gear with vit melded int jewlery on my blm (with i55 wpn), and just being able to dodge his moves pretty much ensures you will win. I had 3.5k hp though as a blm.
