Love this guy, he is a staple in my battle team, along with a crab. I use strand crawler, due to this guys relatively low HP. round 1, have crab cast Renewing mists to keep this guy healed for a couple rounds. Swap to this guy from the crab... hit wind up, followed by prowl, then hit wind up the 2nd time. This guy can 1 hit kill most enemies, I haven't lost a battle with him yet! Give it a try you will not be disappointed. after first enemy dies, rinse and repeat with the crab. Good luck all!
EDIT: some other good team options for this one is having the crawdad from fishing, so you can use wish for the 50% life heal, would all work well with a pet using sunshine as well.
As far as my setup however, shore crab + FFF + Lofty Libram, for the team 50% damage increase, makes this one hardhitting powerhouse, and as stated, can kill almost any pet with 1 hit (aside from magic of course). @ lvl 10 was doing approx 1800 a hit, can't wait to see the output @ lvl 25.
I don't know if I'm just stuck in a CRZ nightmare zone or purgatory, but I pretty much haven't left the area for a week and haven't even seen one. After hanging out there for a while you kinda get talking to the other campers as well. Nobody else has seen one all week either. I'm still not going to to give up though, even though his fighting skills aren't the best, he just looks absolutely cool. One of these years, he will be mine. Congrats if you have found him, and GL to those that haven't.
EDIT: so camping vs checking in now and then... camped for a few weeks, didn't even see one. so for the past week all i've been doing is checking now and then with a toon i have logged there and got one. Also as another poster stated, i rode in from the top FP, might be coincidence, but there were 3 or 4 people hovering above it and didnt go for it, might have been AFK, and i just rode up and got it after waiting a few seconds to see if the campers would, right by the very top crater.
