Tips and Tricks

  • Marine Mayhem is an interruptable and otherwise unavoidable large AoE that hits three times in a row.
  • Tidal Guillotine is an untelegraphed circle AoE around Petalodus sending those hit into the air and applying a Vulnerability Up. Move far away.
  • Ancient Blizzard is an untelegraphed conal AoE at a random target, knocking back those hit and applying a Vulnerability Up. Get behind it.
  • Waterga IV is an AoE marker on a random target applying a Magic Vulnerability Up to those hit to make them more vulnerable to the next one.
  • Protolithic Puncture is a tankbuster on its current threat target.

Description

An Eorzean acquaintance of mine recently informed me of a most confounding incident. Evidently, a shark walking upon two legs assaulted the site of an annual faire! Though it defies reason, I cannot but feel...excited.
Why, you ask? As a matter of fact, a creature with the selfsame description appears in Nymian mythology─a creature known as the “petalodus.” I always found it an amusing thought, though of course the notion of a shark with ambulatory limbs beggars belief.
...Or does it? If we can verify that the petalodus once existed, I have my proof that certain Nymian myths must be founded in reality. And you shall have a charming story to share with your own friends, I'm sure.
