Basics

Halatali Hard mode is unlocked by a quest obtained from Mor Dhona.

There do not seem to be any trash mobs of particular note in this dungeon.

If you’ve completed the Blacksmith Quest line, you’ll meet Bronze Bull as an NPC here (if you remember him. He’s actually still wearing the Cobalt Shamshir you gave him!)

Boss 1 – Pyracmon

You’ll notice a Mammet Activator that’s connected to an Admirer Mammet. When he does 1000-tonze swipe, the floor turns blue (you really cant miss it). During this long channel time, activate the Mammet Activator. The connected Mammet will then release a protective field which you can stand on.

His other abilities 100 tonze swipe – is a short-range circular AoE, sometimes accompanied by a suck, and swing again,

Eye of the Beholder hits all targets far from him. Finally Piercing Glower is a line-aoe.

Boss 2 – Catoblepas

There are 4 Shadowy Orbs near the boss. Activating a Shadowy Orb makes you immune to Catoblepas’s ultimate: Demon Eye.
You can Esuna/Leeches the debuff once demon eye is done casting, since it also reduces your Accuracy.

Every so often a “Tainted Eye” spawns at it’s head. Kill it whenever it appears. It continually gives a map-wide stacking Vulnerability debuff, so you really want to get rid of this fast.

His other abilities aren’t really noteworthy – take care of Demon Eye and Tainted Eye – and you should be good!

Boss 3 – Group Fight + Narashima & Mumuepo

The final encounter(s) of Halatali HM consists of 2 parts. The “Group Fight“, and finally “Narashima & Mumuepo“.

Group Fight

Silent Moss (Conjurer) – He’s the healer so you might as well kill him first.
Langloisert (Lancer) – Has no aggro table and can be an annoyance, kill him second (or third).
U’libho (Archer) – Can be killed second or third, squisy and deals ranged damage.
Franz (Gladiator) – Since he’s the tank kill him last.

There’s not much to note about this fight. Avoid AoE and follow the order above, you’ll be fine.

Narashima & Mumuepo

These two come right after you defeat the group fight. Both of them do the usual AoE that you should avoid. They only have 1 noticeable skill that can cause trouble:

Absolute Bind “chains” two people in your party. They cannot move or act, and it cannot be dispelled. To remove these chains simply interact with the staff that randomly spawns on the ground.

Narashima has a Tailswipe that has quite a big AoE, so you might want to stay at his sides. Killing Mumuepo first is also a good idea.

Halatali HM Loot List

Like most dungeons in this tier, alot of chests drop 2.1 Crafting Materials – stuff like Coke & Peacock Ore.

Halatali also drops an i70 item set (details to follow), and i70 Darklight Accessories.
