alt me Main Fight Mechanics

  • Avoid Garuda-style shriek and eye of the storm.
  • Ifrit/Titan plumes go outer, inner, tank purge, inner, outer.
  • Tanks swap at three stacks of debuff. Warriors will need Provoke available.
  • When tethered orbs appear, group up to walk into one of each set (damage will be shared) before they touch (wipe). Tank LB may be needed for 3rd set of orbs that spawn close together.
  • Destroy the Magitek Bits when they appear.
  • Kite the green orbs as they appear
  • Tanks

  • Keep track of your stacking debuff. At 3 stacks you should tank swap and sit out until the debuffs fall off. 5 stacks will allow Ultima Weapon to one shot you.
  • Use your limit break when the third set of purple/blue orbs appear.
  • The off tank may sacrifice themselves (if no other option) on the last set of orbs to keep fight going
  • Healers

  • Stay nimble and dodge as much damage as you can.
  • Use your regen abilities to help keep everyone's health up and save your real casting for the tanks.
  • DPS

  • Stay nimble and dodge as much damage as you can.
  • It will be ok to sacrifice two DPS on the last set of orbs (if no other option) in order to keep the fight going.
