■What is FINAL FANTASY XIV?
This is a worldwide MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) which takes place in the fictional world of "Eorzea".
Not only does your adventure lead you into battles, but various activities such as crafting items, chocobo training, and many other exciting explorations await you!
Of course, our all-time favorite summon pets, moogles, airships and other elements from the series are also included too!

Zenos Quests

Zenos Features

Melee/Ranged
In battling Zenos, you can predict and dodge an enemy's attack, just like when battling in Eorzea!
Did I hear you say, "In Mobius FF? But how...?"
With the newly added Melee and Ranged status feature, that's how!

[Melee]
Using Attack even once during the player turn will add the Melee status.
While in Melee status, you will be able to dodge enemy ranged attacks.

[Ranged]
If Attack is never used during the player turn, the Ranged status will be added.
While in Ranged status, you will be able to dodge enemy melee attacks.

Signal of Impending Attack
So now you know you can dodge Zenos' attacks with the new Melee and Ranged status.
But that's difficult to do if you can't tell what attack Zenos is going to use when.

There are signals for Zenos' impending attacks.
As long as you recognize these signals, you will know what attack is coming next and how to avoid it!

[Art of the Swell]
"Your foe aims far away..." means Zenos will attack with Art of the Swell next turn.
Get in up close using Melee status to dodge his attack!

[Art of the Storm]
"Your foe aims at a close target..." means Zenos will attack with Art of the Storm next turn.
Get some distance using Ranged status to dodge his attack!

[Art of the Sword]
Once Zenos readies Art of the Sword, he will unleash a powerful attack next turn that cannot be dodged.
However, although normally Zenos cannot be Broken, it is possible to Break him only when he is in this readied stance!
It's time for your Breaker skills to shine!

■Vulnerability
If you are hit by any of the above attacks, you will be debilitated by the Vulnerability debuff.
This causes any damage you take to be increased, so be sure to dodge these three types of Art of - attacks!


[Unmoving Troika]
If Zenos says, "Die!" he will unleash a raging wave of continuous strikes the next turn.
Such a wave of strikes means instant death for any normal job; only a Defender could weather such an attack.
As in Eorzea, your Defender should act as the tank, and taunt the foe to protect the group by focusing the foe's enmity on himself.
*Taunt is a debuff that can be applied with the limited card Ovjang & Mnejing: FFXI, or Titania, an older ability card that is no longer available from the summoning pool.

[Lightless Spark]
In addition, each turn Zenos will use the Lightless Spark area attack.
The only way to counter the great damage every turn is for the Supporter to heal, heal, heal.


In ★3 quests, Zenos will use Art of the Swell > Art of the Sword > Lightless Spark.
In ★4 quests, he will use Art of the Storm > Art of the Sword > Lightless Spark > Unmoving Troika, and once he has dealt a certain amount of damage, will use Art of the Swell.
In ★5 quests, not only will he use all the 4 quest attacks, but he will also use Storm, Swell, Sword!


[Storm, Swell, Sword]
When Zenos begins preparing to use Storm, Swell, Sword, two swords will appear in the field.
2 turns later, he will unleash the devastating Storm, Swell, Sword, and there is no way to remain standing after receiving such an ultimate attack wave...
So use the Attacker's firepower to destroy the swords!
Other roles besides Attacker can Break the swords or place debuffs, so use party teamwork to take him down!

In this way, adapt your tactics to suit each situation with each job fulfilling its role, and take down the enemy!


Other Miscellaneous Advice
[No Ultimates?!]
Basically, you will be unable to use Ultimates while fighting Zenos.
However, there is one situation in which you can use an Ultimate, and that is only during the turn in which you have been revived with a Phoenix Down, etc.
For those who are used to relying on Ultimates, beware!

[Temporary Invulnerability Against Ailment]
Normally, when an ailment effect on an enemy expires, that enemy becomes invulnerable to that ailment for several turns. However, Zenos has no such invulnerable turns!
Don't be shy about bombarding him with ailments and turn the tide of battle in your favor!

The Ultima Weapon is only available in high-difficulty ★3 and ★4 quests!
All quests will be a single battle with Ultima Weapon. However, this is a powerful foe that shouldn't be underestimated.
A difficult battle awaits - be sure to make the necessary preparations by checking the information below!

Ultima Weapon Features

Multiple Area Attacks
Ultima Weapon is an anti-primal weapon and can use multiple area attacks with differing elemental affinities.
Use Element Drive with the appropriate element to match the area attack before you get hit!

Laser Attack
If you get hit by the Ultima Weapon's laser, the laser counter will rise.
*This is the icon with the count at 3 seen in the image below.


Once the laser counter has risen above a set amount, the next laser attack will deal a colossal amount of damage.
You can decrease this counter by using Esuna or Life Element Drives.

The Ultima Weapon's Elemental Affinity
The Ultima Weapon is a light affinity foe!
Prepare yourself with powerful dark abilities to take down Ultima Weapon!

Summon Guardians
Once the Ultima Weapon has taken a certain amount of damage it will summon two Guardians. These Guardians will self-destruct after one turn has passed, dealing massive damage to your party. Try to take them out before they have a chance to self-destruct!
The Guardians are light and dark affinity, so if you only possess dark abilities you may struggle with them.

Extreme Sicarius Quests

Characteristics

Elemental Resistance

A Sicarius will resist all elemental attacks except for the element they are weak against.
Extreme Belias will resist all elemental attacks except water, while Famfrit will resist all elemental attacks except fire.
Mercilessly use their select elemental weakness against them!

Alternate Stances
A Sicarius will change stance once its HP is sufficiently reduced.
While a Sicarius can be Broken at first, once they change stance, Break will no longer work on them.
For this reason, your party will need a Breaker to be able to Break the enemy quickly in the first half of battle, and an Attacker to deal damage without having to Break during the second half...!

Buff Target / Debuff Target
Upon ending each turn, the Sicariuses will use either Buff Target: ○○ or Debuff Target: ○○.

For the Buff Target: ○○, if any one of the players have a buff effect and the turn switches over to the Sicarius, they will react violently and strike with an area attack to all players.

For Debuff Target: ○○, if the Sicarius is inflicted with a debuff and the turn switches over to the foe, they will react violently and strike with an area attack to all players.

Extreme Belias Sicarius will use Buff target: Ailment Immunity / Debuff target: Hex,
Extreme Famfrit Sicarius will use Buff target: Warrior's Trance / Debuff target: Slow.


With this said, be cautious when setting the ability cards to your deck.
There is however, one way to avoid the Buff target / Debuff target.

Using opposite elemental abilities from "Extreme Sicarius X" cards will neutralize the Buff/Debuff target.
If you have not obtained these cards yet, be sure to stop by The Rift: Famfrit / The Rift Belias!

Actions increase with each turn
For each turn during the Extreme Sicarius battles, the Sicariuses will use "Quicken: ?".
During the actual battle, the "" will be replaced with a number, which will increase with each turn.
In other words, the Sicariuses actions will increase with each turn!

If you don't defeat them asap, they will become even stronger...?!


Incredibly strong...
Out of all the Sicariuses that have descended upon the Ring of Braves, the Extreme Sicariuses are the most powerful of them all!
Since their strength is beyond the ★5 Hard Quests we've had, it may be EXTREMELY challenging to obtain the No Death Bonus...

No Death Bonus
There are some exclusive materials that drop upon defeating Extreme Sicariuses with the No Death Bonus.
For example, Extreme Belias Sicarius drops an "Extreme Belias's Cinders" and Extreme Famfrit Sicarius drops an "Extreme Famfrit's Jug".
There are exclusive items that can be exchanged with these components so try your best to challenge the Extreme Sicariuses with the No Death Bonus!

No Death completion support♪
To help clear the super powerful Extreme Sicariuses with the "No Death Bonus",
Extreme Anima illustrated raise stamps will be available at the Item Exchange until 2/1 6:59 pm PST (UTC-8) which will have a revival effect for a limited time!

[Stamp Revival Effective Period]
Saturday, February 1, 12:00 am to
Sunday, March 1, 11:59 pm PST (UTC-8)

* You can only revive from using the stamp once per battle.
* If you have been defeated again after the revival stamp has been used, you will no longer be able to obtain the No Death Bonus.
* If other players use their own stamps for revival, the group will still be eligible to obtain the No Death Bonus.
* Although you revive with one of the stamps, if other players use other methods for revival, you will no longer be eligible to receive the No Death Rewards.

There's more! Beginning 2/1 7:00 pm PST (UTC-8) Extreme Belias, and from 2/15 7:00 pm PST (UTC-8) Extreme Famfrit illustrated "Raise" stamps will also be available!
These stamp's revival effective period will begin from 3/1 12:00 am PST (UTC-8)!
