Is anyone the least bit surprised that to beat one of the toughest mobs in the game without a healer you have an ET tank it?

It seems that whenever I read a log about something that was believed to be impossible, an ET was involved.

I can say without any hesitation that, having watched that fight from behind the curtain, that the ET was only the second most broken part of that fight. There's a reason that alchemists aren't available anymore.

I will say this, having been involved in that, along with so many other things. The ET didn't matter, in the least. The laundry list of things that were accomplished without a healer, and often times a tank, is so absurd that it's almost laughable. Actually, not even almost, it is laughable. Anahkra was hands down the greatest alchemist that this game has seen, and was surrounded by a group of people that enabled so many other things to happen. The insane amount of hours spend prepping for these fights goes without saying, but, no... it really didn't have ANYTHING to do with the ET.

But as you point out, the problem of Alchemist potential power has already been addressed. ETs remain untouched.

The september 6th update addressed certain issues with ET-- they should by design be pretty easily playable, but they're going to be far less ridiculous especially at the top end now.

Also, there are advantages to fighting this mob without a WS...
