Anyways i dont know what the h e l l Square/Enix is thinking because 1st they pull this crap on FFXII with Yizamat which took me 5 1/2 hours no gameshark codes, he had like 15 billion hp an petrify an death spells galore! Now they bring this one out on FFXI wich i also played 4 years ago as a lvl 75 Summoner on Alander server names Requiem! S/E said dont play this game a forget about your job, family, an real life yet the bring out this impossible monster with more unatural powers than the Invincible Tekken 5 Jimpachi on expert mode! All I'm saying is this is Krazy!

I remember when I first read that story a few days back about that one group that took on the boss and were fighting him for like over 18 hours and they were all fatigued and passing out!

I couldn't stop cracking up! Imagine you're fighting the boss and are pumped to kick it's ass. One hour...5 hours....10 hours....15 hours passes and your all drained and thinking "What the eff? This fool ain't dying???" LOL sorry couldn't help but laugh.

Good news for those people that planned on fighting the boss but didn't want to play for like 24 hours straight!

aww kinda kills the WOW factor.

Mind over matter. Crazy indeed.

Azurite3740d ago

Thought it was a cool feature, hope they don't lower it too much.

Square Enix likes to punish it's players and if some of you don't agree with that, you've obviously not played this Final Fantasy. More than likely this boss will not be lowered in ability but given a new ability. The group that spent 18hrs trying ineffectually to kill a boss were trying to do so without fighting it with the proper method. I think SE is just gonna put a de-pop timer on it so if you haven't gotten the beast down to specific HP by a certain time, then the monster will simply use an ability to vanish... which will proly occur 5hrs in so you'll still waste a buttload of time if you're fighting the thing incorrectly.

It's kinda sad. The way SE worded what they said about the adjustment seems to be that the people who spent 18hrs fighting were doing it wrong but because it got so much attention they are going to fix it regardless. The second I heard about this I thought that the linkshell fighting it must have been doing the fight wrong. Having played FFXI since the US release I have fought every boss in the game and I can tell you that if you don't know what you are doing some fights can be extremely long and if you know what you are doing you can beat a boss in under a hr. If this Linkshell was really the best they would have quickly noticed that what they were doing wasn't working and wouldn't have wasted 18hrs on a losing fight.

OMGLOLZ3740d ago

Seriously, he's got like 12 forms...

Nevers3737d ago

but I totally agree with his take on what SE is gonna do... SE ain't gonna make this badboy less difficult... they're gonna give it a timer so if you're not fighting it correctly, the monster is gonna de-pop (disappear) and you will have only wasted proly 5-8hrs LMAO/weep
