damn man i dont need a 24 minute verbal essay give me keywords holy crap

Author Connor Murray (2 months)
I think that the tank swap mechanic wasn't done quite enough justice in
this video. Tanks going into the fight expecting a regular swap like in
garuda, titan, or even ramuh, are gonna get a rude slap in the face. Lots
of times, I found myself already back up at 3 stacks before the other
tank's stacks had even worn off. Ifrit also has a nasty habit of
incinerating you twice in a row after 2 stacks, putting you up at 4 in no
time. Many pug tanks simply get too comfortable when off tanking and aren't
expecting to have to swap again in less than 20 seconds at times. Ifrit
also loves to incinerate WHILE you are swapping, giving both of you another

I found it much more helpful and effective to have the current OT always
stay near Ifrit. You can't afford to miss that 3rd stack. Also another
thing missed in the video is that Ifrit will land next to whoever has top
aggro after dashes, so the current MT always needs to start running back
into position after about the third dash.

im glad this is easier! after titian ex i needed a break xD

Just beat Titan Ex (after dozens and dozens of frustrating failures), so
I'm ready to take this guy on! Seems like cake in comparison.

fo real though this seems way easier than Titan EX and those mufuckin

yo this guy is so thorough lol good vids!

Author Sum Ting Wong (5 months)
Apparently, unlike all the other difficulties using the caster DPS T3 limit
break on the final nails is a bad idea, since it pretty much raid wipes
when you take out 1/3rd of them at once...

Just beat titan ex after months (since release of..) last night..test to
take this on! I've been well geared for all these fights but some folks
can't get the fights down because they can't figure out the patterns. These
aren't hard fights. I'm just glad I had a good group finally. 

Author TheLifeInTheBox (9 months)
Couldn't you just ensuna the debuff off of the tank(s)?

Author sevendubb (1 year)
Heal this. Then tell me it's not egg stream. All egg stream primals have
repeating/monotonous phases so I don't think Garuda or Titan have much more

If you can't beat Garuda you just need to step your game up, or L2DPS.
Titan's a joke. It's incredibly methodical.

Ifrit? Fucking RNG you gotta adapt to on the fly.

Author Bananaboatdotjpeg (1 year)
Bah i was expecting more. Titan EX and Garuda EX seem way harder than
Ifrit. Im kind of disapointed. They really should of fleshed out Ifrit more

is it possible to kill the big nail first then go for other nails next?

Author ShivaServer2009 (1 year)
Mr. Happy, I tried this fight early this morning and I noticed a few
differences between 2.0's version and 1.0. I had to do this fight for my
blm relic in 1.0 and I was surprised that SE made it so only the healers
get targeted with the debuff. Another noticeable difference was that you
no longer have to break his horns in the beginning of the fight. Did you
play 1.0 and do the fight then? If so, do you think they should've kept
the fight as it was then?
Is there a noticeable icon on the UI that pops if you get chained? I found
a few times ppl didn't realise they were chained right away so is there
something to look for on the UI? Thanks for all your vids btw, the Titan
ex vid was very helpful and informative. Finally got my win last night.

Author MastaYoshi (1 year)
Still easier than Titan EM for DPS, harder for Healers though. 

Author Adriano Passos (1 year)

Author Alexo Gable (1 year)
Awesome vid man, ill have to give it a try, Looks like your right as long
as you pay attention to the mechanics and don't panic this doesn't seem
like that difficult of a fight if your geared correctly.
How many times did your group wipe before first getting this fight?

Author Bob Martin (1 year)
Mr. Happy. I really like your videos and you're always my go-to guy for FF
info. But maybe you could expound more on what the healers are supposed to
do? Its an important mechanic in the fight but I'm really feeling in the
dark here on what their strategy is. Not finding many videos online that
outline exactly how searing wind works other than it alternates and is bad.

Author smailyOgando (1 year)
Ok thanks 

Author Olorinlemaiar (1 year)
We had a problem with our raid on our first tries, we were always wiping on
the last nail phase because it seemed like we had not enough DPS, turn out
it was the contrary, we had so much DPS that the tanks and the summoner
dots were enough to pass a threshold where he choose to immediatly jump.
Once we calmed down the dps, we saw that we had a LOT more time to destroy
the nails. We lost a whole night because of this.

Author KikoriShadow (1 year)
Hell, they added more creativity to how Ultima's Bane handled Ifrit
mechanics to how Ifrit itself handled his own mechanics. <_<

Author Telris86 (1 year)
You forgot one thing about the radiant plumes. The save spot shifts from
phase to phase. The NE save spot moves slightly to the east each time. On
the final phase after the big nail it's directly east and the save spot for
the healer that needs to be away is directly west.

Author Canadian Attack Moose (1 year)
I don't really have time to watch the videos right now, so you might have
said it in the video, sorry! Can I go into the primals as WHM and still get
the BLM weapon, or do I need to be on my BLM to get it?

Author HasegawaMasato (1 year)
Just got our first extreme primal weapon tonight. Took us 2days to down
titan, and just an hour or so for ifrit. Gonna say ifrit is poorly
designed and probably the easiest among all 3 extreme primals. 

Author vilvet hope (1 year)
btw what does it drop?

Author Drk Mercenary (1 year)
Is there a guide with healer POV somewhere? My party can't figure out how
to deal with Searing Wind when going clockwise during nail phase. Does the
healer with Searing Wind move across the middle to dodge the DPS group?

Author ThePvtcornflower (1 year)
You should really take this video down. It's FULL of wrong information. I
don't know whether or not you are intentionally trying to mislead people or
not but you should fix this.

Can you use tank lb to survive 3er hell fire?
