The hard mode of the fight from the mission "To Kill A Raven", from a DRG PoV. Party setup is PLD, MNK, DRG x2, WHM x2, THM x2. The cutscenes are the same as the normal mode, so they're not included.

I hadn't forgotten about doing this fight! Things were just pretty busy for a lot of us irl so we weren't able to gather together to do it. Since I was so late to upload it, I'm sure anyone wanting to attempt it has read up on strategies. Besides, the DRG PoV really doesn't do justice to a lot of the complexities of this fight like the meteors and such.

This run is actually pretty messy overall with a lot of deaths, but the battle is so long that you can recover. The key to this fight is being able to make it through a few key things. The first is making it through his initial Megaflare via Lunar Curtains or Battle Voice if using a BRD. The second is interrupting his Dalamund Dives in phase 2. Solid DDs will have no problem with this. The third is making it through the phase in which he summons a ton of golems. The MNK and mages should handle those while the DRGs push his HP down. The last is the meteor spam phase. This is probably the worst part, and relies heavily on having super skilled mages/ranged attackers. I won't even begin to explain it as it's complicated, I'll just link BG's strategy which explains every facet of the fight really well.


As an aside, yeah I know I died 2x in this video. The first time, I pulled hate... I got him off of me, but he hit me then aoed, not much I could do. The second, I'm not sure what happened. 99 and I were both behind him, and we were somehow still hit by his beam. It might be because he turned just a little as he fired it, I'm not sure, that was the only time anything like that had happened.

Anyway, it's looking like this is about the end of 1.0 content. I will of course be uploading videos of the final end of the world events, and I plan to make a little compilation video of FFXIV 1.0 as well~

Thanks for watching!
