Recently downed 8 Bukhiseseses and got 14 wings out of it with no TH at all, which -- although that by itself might be a limited sampling -- further cements in my mind that you don't really need TH for this guy; 2x drops is just luck of the draw and probably a 50% chance.
Yeah the drop rate on him is very solid for wings. 17 wings out of 9 kills last night, so only one pop with one wing. We did have TH though, and we procd yellow on every pop, not that yellow has ever been proven to help with Empy item drop rates.
Oh and this might sound obvious but it hasnt been mentioned, tanks should be stocked to the hilt with Holy Water for this fight to ease up on the mages.
Actually found him fairly easily tankable on THF the other night when doom got people - but less than ideal to have apocalypse zombie weaponskills going on... met marks for results, but not for style lol.
Yep, evasion tanks win on him pretty well, but NIN excels because of the amount of shadows.
Thats the thing, the Zombie strat will work, but its generally slower than doing it clean, not to mention you waste time in between pops waiting for people to unweaken.
On another note, I finished my Axe last night! Massive respect to the folks in my LS who helped me deal with Bukhis. Tested it by kicking the sh*t out of Fafnir and was pleasantly surprised with Cloudsplitter, which was beating out Rend with a pretty average setup (Approx. +31 MND +45 STR 21 MAB and RDM sub).
