    If just before a chop you'd have to break the stun with a genie. Faith skill would help I guess. Getting hit with axeforce isn't too big a problem as you can purify afterwards.

    The stun from dot-axe thingy lasts long enough to still be stunned when he do his one shot.
    However you dont get dot-stun at all if you're keeping aggro, it's only a problem if you go solo.

    And then he uses a stun randomly on the entire squad, just before a chop or throwing an axe.
    What do you do?

    Did I just read that you're not interested in damage as a tank?

    Final boss would be pretty easy, 100 seconds of buddhas guard. **** his rampage.

    Normally, you would be right. But in this specific situation a BM would need to be interested in 2 things:
    - Have aggro when frog's axe slam comes (River Avalanche can take care of this, as it's a aggro forcing skill like Flesh Ream).
    - Have enough chi to spark when the axe slam comes to be immune - or when the axeforce debuff is on you.

    Of course you'd use skill based damage if you've got enough chi, but for fast chi building as a bm, APS is the way to go. It just doesn't deal as much damage while you do it - which you can fix by having River Avalanche put you back on top aggro.

    As for tanking Mushi during rampage: Myriad Sword, Buddas Guard and/or Marrow Physical. Max phys reduction plus boss damage halved, should work wonders. Even one casting of Buddas followed by MSS tends to save a tank that forgets to invoke, so chaining these should mean it's np. Frog and the phys immune king would be more problematic (but solveable with abovementioned method and elemental apoths respectively).

    Or instead of elemental apoths, imbue an elemental shard in one of your weapons. I'd recommend something other than wood for the shard, so you can use the same weapon on the phys + wood immune tower in SoT.

    2.5m mark, nice thought it was somewhere around there. Thanks.

    Also I think I'll do a Joe Challenge where he has to make five consecutive posts that contain nothing that could be remotely interpreted as e-peen stroking. b:chuckle jk.

    you can bypass it with a 3 mil hit or 2 x 1.5 mil hits or whatever, the boss waits 1,5-2 seconds to actually heal.

    As usual the challenge completion needs to be recorded uploaded and linked here.

    ZZZ gunna make me make a video?
    I'm behind one the ones I gotta make right now as is.... b:surrender

    But ya, just spark during the Chop pretty easy to time.
    Use Deaden nerves before starting.

    Toad actually regains full HP if you try to kill him too fast, happened to me a few times. The point of the challenge is to show how an average geared {insert class} could play the role of the barb at toad boss assuming they are in a squad where they can or are allowed to hold aggro. So something with like 3-4 axes or more would be be ideal. i.e. focus of this challenge is on creative use of class skills, apo and genie.

    This happens if you deal a very large amount of damage and he lives for anywhere between 5-10 seconds he will instantly regain his health, however if you can kill him in under 5 seconds he will instantly die without regening his health back to full. To do this you need the right squad comp and a couple people that can deal a few million damage to high defense lv 150 bosses in a couple seconds.
