So, I brought smn/whm to fight Shinny, and I was able to contribute. Here's what I did, if anyone wants to try out or has a better strategy.

1) Talk to everyone ahead of time so they know what you are going to do.

2) As soon as you get in, Perfect Defense the first tank. Not during the brew stage... they're pretty much invincible then. But when the monk runs up and starts tanking. This was a big stress releaver for all people involved.

3) Immediately summon the appropirate element, siphon, dismiss, summon diabolos, use Avatar's Favor and stand by the whm.

4) As soon as Perfect Defense wears off get Dream Shroud on the tank, then run back to the whm to keep the refresh up and start helping to cure.


Best of luck!

Earthen Armor might also be useful for his high-damage moves. The healers shouldn't need refresh if they have half-decent atma. That's cool though that you were able to contribute, seems hard sometimes for SMN in Abyssea. We dominate stuff but not if we have to wait for someone to trigger, which is pretty much Abyssea in a nutshell.

You can also brew him on SMN using Earth Crusher, I've done it a couple times and he goes down pretty quick.
