Frankenbalrog next to impossible

As a evan, my ability to do physical damage is limited severely, I have only been able to kill a frankenbalrog before it despawned once.

It seems that if I miss more than a few hits it'll despawn before I kill it. I was with a friend who was a low level hayoto (new player too) and he yelled at me over skype "COME HELP I CAN ONLY HIT ONE DAMAGE!" I was like, "haha ok but it'll take a while" I walk in to him doing a firestorm of lines to it simply because his class is physical damage based!

Long story short, It seems this event was not thought through completely or I am simply missing something.

Is it possible to make adjustments to their spawn duration on the 19th? is it worth it?

What do you think?

--edit--
sorry for the grammatical error in option 6 of the poll, I can't change it now :/

    1. I think the spawn duration should be extended on the 19th and the event extended.

    2. I think the spawn duration should be extended on the 19th and the event _not_ extended.

    3. I think you're missing something Daleth, there is a way to do it easily.

    4. I think there is a issue but nothing should be done, events are not always fair and that's how it is

    5. I think it's easier simply to just move on and wait for next time.

    It has nothing to do with physical vs. magical damage.
    Hayato specifically has a "normal attack" that does multiple hits very fast. Most physical classes don't. Luminous, which is a magical class, can also kill Frankenbalrogs easily because one of his skills does a rapid-fire (of "1" damage) to it.
    This mob is just very badly designed.
    There are at least two threads already in the forums about it.

    I can confirm what AKradian says. I'm a bowmaster and my basic attacks are very slow as well. I haven't been able to kill a single one by myself so far sadly.

    I'd love to see it's lifetime increased or it's HP decreased.

    I think what needs to change is just to have it's hp increased, but also allow any skill to do lines of 1's.

    that would work as well
