We have done this sword several times earlier, so I'm of course not asking for a walk through, but it would be interesting to see if a non tank class ever has managed to get the quest done and actually crafted the sword.
We have done the Ibis sword quest earlier with a guardian doing the quest, which could take a few hits, but the spawning guards slice through my light armour as butter and the speed of them makes it impossible to kite them 100% of the time.
But as it would have been extremely silly of Funcom to make a quest only doable for certain classes, but still giving it out to all classes, I'm interested in seeing if anybody actually have finished the sword with cloth, light or even medium armor.
I'd be happy to find out that it's doable as if not I've just wasted a zillion worth of gold in mats ^^
tbh i don´t think it´s impossible, only probably you´ll have to bring like "4 Tanks , 5 Healers and 15 Casters" as someone mentioned in the other thread, so you can move fast, safe and those blood guardians are down asap, before they manage to kill you .. but i admit, that it´s kinda hard mode of a hard mode

.. a Barb was unhappy that he cant craft Ibis now that its 1 sword at the time affair ..
Apparently .. a few go in with mats .. .tanks pull the mobs and everyone gets the sword.
I would dearly love 2 Quills for my Barb and a Feather for my HoX ... that would be sweet. - gonna have to use a DT I suppose.
hehe, well, I've had my Ibis a while, the one I was to craft now was for a guilde. It's not bop you know.
The extra mobs spawning can't be tanked/kited by others than the quest holder. Even with all the minus hate gear in the entire Hyboria.
But well, was good enough for me to read that somebody actually had managed this without being a tank. I can't for the love of god figure out how one manages to get through those three adds without taking some hits (which means certain death), but I'll rally all the alts in the guild and gather up 4 tanks, 3 healers and 16 casters and give it a go.
