FFXIV fans, rejoice! This event is coming sooner than we expected! For the rest, you can rejoice too as there will be new awesome rare relics up for grabs!

Event Rules

This will be a very short event, nonetheless they will still pose some challenge.

In addition, this event will introduce the new Event Quests. These quests will only be available during the event, so if you miss it, then you’ll miss it forever. For this event’s quest, you have to clear each dungeon with only four party members including Thancred and Y’shtola.

Inconspicuous Imp

Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.

Strategy
Note that the imps make Galvanth immune to damage. In fact, it makes him untargettable. So kill imps ASAP when Galvanth summons them. He summons 1 imp early into the fight. When he gets low on HP he will summon 2 imps. AoE abilities will do well. This shouldn’t too difficult. You don’t even have to get Slow medals for Mastery. For newer players, consider bringing Slow for the medals.

Colossal Slam: Deal heavy physical damage to all targets.

► Stone Servant

Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.
Grand Slam: Deal physical damage to all targets.

Strategy
You start the fight against Gyges alone. As the fight goes on Gyges will start hitting the boulder wall and when it breaks open, Stone Servant will join the battle.Both of them only deal physical damage, so Power Breakdown + Protectga will do well here. Combine that with Sentinel’s Grimoire / Stoneskin for huge mitigation.


Recommended abilities: Power Breakdown, Protectga
Recommended RW: Sentinel’s Grimoire, Stoneskin

Vulcan Burst: Deal non-elemental damage and cancel ATB to all targets.
Eruption: Deal heavy fire damage to one target.
Hellfire: Deal massive fire damage to all targets.
Radiant Plume: Deal heavy fire damage to all targets.

Strategy
The following happens when Ifrit reaches 50% HP:

  • Infernail Nail is summoned into the battle.
  • Ifrit gains the ability ‘Hellfire’

Just like any other boss, always start the fight with defensive Breakdowns and mitigation buffs such as Sentinel’s Grimoire / Stoneskin, etc. Once that is done you can proceed to do real damage to Ifrit, preferably using high grade magic like the -jas, Diaga, etc.

When Infernal Nail spawns, you want to kill it ASAP. Leaving it up will make Hellfire damage potentially lethal.

Other than these pointers, there isn’t much else to this fight. Watch the videos below to get an idea of how the fight goes, especially those Event Quest runs.

Good luck!
