Ultima Weapon Teaser Video
*Still the teaser vid -> will be updating soon.
*Guide still under refinement
Ultima Weapon has a bajillion abilites, and a very entertaining fight!
Ultima Weapon Phase 1 – Primal Phase
Garuda / Titan Phase
Two main abilities happen here:
- Garuda appears on the screen then releases a HUGE AoE cone in the direction she’s facing. Don’t linger on the edges, or you might not make it to safety.
- A Vortex appears in the middle, once it vanishes, move towards the edge of the stage in preparation for Titans “Geocrush”
Due to the nature of these abilities, it’s best not to stay too near the edges of the stage.
Ifrit / Titan Phase
- In/Out Plumes – The usual outer ring / inner cluster plume formation. Keep the same positioning mentality as the Garuda phase.
- Plumes + Crimson Cyclone – This is a pretty fun one. Radiant Plumes happens while a single Ifrit does his “Line Rush” skill.
Ultima Weapon Phase 2 – “Machines!”
Magitek Ray – Much like piercing laser from ADS. A thick randomly targetted line AoE.
Magitek Bit – Little adds that point and shoot lasers at random targets. The first pattern they spawn in is a circular group of.
Freefire – AKA Airship bombs. The glowing cross-air on the floor represents its epicenter, and the further you are from it, the less damage you take.
