Epic Hard FFXI Boss Killed In One Minute

"A group of players brandishing super rare Kraken Club took down Absolute Virtue, the other impossible boss that supposedly takes 18 hours to kill, in like a minute. Hit the jump for a clip of the take down, complete with Smashing Pumpkins."

The story is too old to be commented.

That super rare 'Kraken Club' is a club that can attack up to 8 times in a single swing. The jobs that are fighting Absolute Virtue are 18 Dark Knights, which have the ability to buff their attack power up. They also have the ability to sacrifice HP for damage, and a 2 hour ability to absorb HP from the enemy. So suddenly you have 18 guys beating on the boss for 300-500 damage a swing, attacking 8 times per attack, and he just dies.

-according to Lyrai of Kotaku

I never played FFXI myself and like you had no clue lol. Im sure SE nerfed the boss maybe he has less hp now just guessing.

and let me tell you, this is a MAJOR disappointment. All they did was gimp the hell out of him. Supposedly before, there were secrets in place to defeat him which SE did not see fit to tell us. But, after the media took notice to the "18 hour" fights, SE claimed it was not intentional and turned this enemy (Absolute Virtue) into a big pansy. (no fight in the game is meant to be 18 hours long as far as I know.. some take a few hours but at 18 you're probably doing something wrong.)

This guy was a big accomplishment (he was beaten through only glitches before) and now they basically spat in the faces of everyone who spent so much time trying to beat him fairly. At this point, he's not even the hardest boss anymore. Such a lame answer to the dilemma if you ask me.

all these suckers trying to kill AV for years with their all- blackmage alliances rofl. All pwned in the end by meleeing dark knights.

Still, Monk > Dark knight (proven on more than one occasion)

Proud retired monk 75 & pld 75

EDIT: can disagree all you want, but thats the reality in FF11 endgame. All endgame Linkshells utilize 90% blackmage groups for damage.

They recently updated those bosses so they wouldn't be as ridiculous as they were in their monthly update to the game.

Sounds like someone at Kotaku missed that piece of news...then again, look what site I'm talking about here.

Even if they gimped some HNM's.. he still got OWNED! lol
Cool vid, this looked awesome haha
I've played FFXI for 3 years, almost quit for 2 already.. NEVER going back again. Still looks fun though. If only everything in that game took 1 min. But they forget the HOURS and HOUURRRSS of preperation before this 1 minute fight. So MEH! /goodbye /quit ;)

lol...looked like that movie Kids when they beat the guy down with their skateboards
