Raised from the waters by the thrice-mad Illuminati, the steel colossus Alexander yet towers over the Thaliak, bleeding the hinterlands dry with a thirst for aether that will not be slaked. The time has come for action. As Y'shtola and Master Matoya seek to magically sever the primal's death grip on the land, you will take to the skies with Cid in hopes of securing an ingress through the colossus's mighty pate. The realm itself cries out for succor—will you rise to answer its call?

Video Guide

There is an opening trash encounter which can just be tanked and spanked.


For the encounter with Refurbisher 0, the room is divided into four quadrants. There will be interactable Power Generators and dead enemies (scrap metal) on the floor. The goal here is to move the power generators adjacent to the enemies to revive them, so that the off-tank can drag the enemies to a quadrant that will be engulfed in lava. The adds must be killed before the lava appears or the boss will instead be buffed! Any players caught in the lava will be inflicted with a strong Burns icon1.png Burns damage-over-time. Once moved, power generators cannot be moved again.

Eventually, a Full Metal Faust add is spawned, dealing proximity based damage as it arrives. Move away from it's spawn point to mitigate. This add has enough HP to survive the first lava zone appearing, and functions as a DPS check. The off-tank needs to move Full Metal Faust to the opposite corner of where he spawns, as this will be the third quadrant to be consumed in lava. The lava pits spawn much faster during this phase, so moving to the far side should give the party enough time to DPS him down. When Full Metal Faust appears Refurbisher 0 becomes invulnerable, so all damage must be focused on Faust. If Full Metal Faust contacts lava while still alive the raid will instantly wipe!

Once Full Metal Faust is killed, the boss can be damaged again. Mechanics repeat from this point. If Refurbisher 0 manages to rebuilt all his body components (due to failed add/lava mechanics), the raid will wipe.

Refurbisher 0 Abilities

  • Scrap - A column attack on the main tank. Don't cleave the party.
  • Scrap Burst - Orange markers that drop meteors. Players must hide behind these meteors to avoid damage and a Bleed icon1.png Bleeding damage-over-time debuff from the follow-up attack.
  • Scrapline - Large 270 degree frontal cone AoE. Everyone, tanks included, should move behind the boss for this.
  • Scrapbomb - a stack marker, the entire raid should stand together to share the damage. Healers shield and heal as necessary.
