Titan Extreme Mode (FFXIV: ARR)
Titan Extreme Mode Teaser Video
Titan Extreme Mode abilities
Double Granite Gaol – Granite Gaol is back, but has a few new tricks!
- ALWAYS targets a healer + dps.
- Crushes the target if not destroyed in time.
- Damage recieved is half if both gaols are in close proximity to one another.
- Double Granite Gaol is always followed by upheaval…
Upheaval – very similar to demon walls “repel”. You get pushed outwards from titan. You CAN fall if you’re not careful!
Due to how double granite gaol and upheaval work, there are two popular strategies dealing with this:
- A) Gaoled Healer under titan, Gaoled DPS at the edge – “Safer” since healers break out first, to top up the party for the upcoming stomps.
- B) Gaoled DPS under titan, Gaoled healer at the edge – What we use, since the dps gets released first, the second gaol dies faster.
Mountain Buster – Now gives a stacking debuff which increases damage taken.
Titan Extreme Post-Heart
Granite Gaoler – mini-titans that give the main titan a determination up buff if too close, they also have Landslide, and an AoE pulse (like Tumult). Killing them leaves a slow field that does a massive heavy and DoT to anyone who walks there!
“Asterisk” Bomb Pattern – A Strange bomb pattern with 3 sets. the “X” set. the “+” set, and the center bomb. The + Set will always spawn in N,S,E,W. (These blow up first) the X spawns at “1:30 – 4:30 – 7:30 – 10:30″. (These blow up second). Then finally the center. The timing of the bomb blowing up is considerably slower than hard mode. For many of us, that delay is what caused the most difficult adjustment.
5 Direction Landslide – an upgrade from the 3 direction: The tank has to dodge, too!
Double Weight of the Land – exactly like weight of the land but it happens twice in succession. all non-tanks should stack behind titan, dodge outwards, then dodge inwards. Sounds horrible, but much easier than you think.
“Superbombs” – a bomb pattern with ZERO SAFE SPOTS. You must kill one of the (preferably) edge bombs to remain safe! A pseudo DPS check.
Titan Extreme Mode Rotation [refinement]
First Phase (“Irrelevant Phase”)
Landslide – Weight of the Land (“Plumes”) – Mountain Buster – Tumult – Landslide – Geocrush at 85% (Repeat)
Second Phase (“Tutorial”)
Landslide – Double Gaol – Upheaval – Landslide – Tumult – Plumes – Mountain Buster -Landslide – Plumes – One-side bombs – Mountain Buster – Landslide – Geocrush (If life at 55% or lower)
If his life is above 55%, he will continue to do this pattern:
Double Gaol – Mountain Buster – Landslide – Tumult – Plumes – Mountain Buster
It is currently unclear to us how or when this pattern continues, but it should be dying much sooner than this.
Heart Phase (No mountain buster!)
Plumes – Double Gaol – Upheaval – Landslide – Tumult – Plumes – *Clock Bombs – Landslide. [Super combo: Plumes - Tumult - Earthen Fury]
*Titans Heart should be killed at or around this time… if Titan extends past this time he does a super combo which is pretty difficult to dodge – effectively killing you with earthen fury even if your party killed the heart.
Post-Heart -> Death
ADDS – Mountain Buster – Asterisk Bombs – Landslide – Plumes – Double Gaol – Mountain Buster – Tumult – Double Plumes – Three Rows Bomb – Landslide – Mountain Buster – Super Bombs – Tumult – Plumes – Geocrush – (Repeat 3x)
