After battling your way through to the base of the colossal fragment that impales the ground in Alder Springs, your party enters the structure through an opening in its outer shell. The sight that greets you is of an endless procession of azure-lit passages, within which can be glimpsed the grotesque silhouettes of chimeric monstrosities.

Video Guide

Circle Blades is a circular AoE with indicator. It does 1,000 to 2,000 damage.

Cursed Voice is an ability that targets 1 tank, 1 healer, and 1 DPS. All of the targeted players get a voice that Petrification icon1.png Petrifies anything in front of the players in a cone. Use this to petrify Renauds and not your party members. If any Snake adds get hit with voice they get a damage increase which makes the fight much harder to heal.

Cursed Shriek is an ability that targets 1 healer or DPS. Cursed party member shrieks out and Petrification icon1.png Petrifies everything in its line-of-sight. Players must hide behind a frozen Renaud to avoid its effects. The ability will also give the boss a damage buff stack if boss isn't LoS'd.

Fireballs is an ability that spawns fireballs periodically. Before 50% HP they're usually cast after shriek goes off. After 50%, they're usually before shriek. Boss shoots 2 fireballs to separate targets that do AoE damage. Will prioritize ranged DPS first, then healers. If a physical ranged is too close to the boss, within 3 yalms, then another DPS will be targeted instead.

Petrifaction is an ability used by the 3rd add and right after the add is dead. The ability Petrification icon1.png Petrifies anyone looking at the boss similar to Medusa.

  • Petrified players to will die after 1 hit.

Tail Whip is a frontal cone AoE with no indicator.

Venomous Tail deals heavy damage and Poison icon1.png Poisons its targets. Cleanse the debuff ASAP.

Aggressive difficulty r6.png Adds

Renaud is a giant, slow cyclops. It will aggro normally until someone hits him, then he will be locked on that target until it's killed. Petrify him with cursed voice and hide behind him to LoS shrieks. Each Petrification icon1.png Petrification lasts 60 seconds and he has a 60 second Slow icon1.png Slow debuff when spawning. He becomes extremely fast when his slow debuff wears off. Kill the old Renaud when a new Renaud spawns.

Lamia Deathdancers (Melee Snakes) (1st set) uses frontal cleave (no indicator), AoE cleave (with indicator), and huge damage. Spawns 1 at a time. DPS should be good enough to ensure that 2 aren't up simultaneously.

Lamia Fatedealers (Ranged Snakes) (2nd set) uses single target damage and an indicator where AoE damage will come down. Just have to heal through these and kill ASAP. All 4 spawn simultaneously.

Lamia Prosector (Caster Snake) (3rd and last snake add) deals heavy damage on OT and casts Petrifaction. Look away when Petrifaction comes. Main boss will cast petrifaction when this snake is downed. Can LB this or LB boss, doesn't really matter that much. Make sure party is positioned so you can use Cursed Voice on the Renaud without hitting the Caster snake or main boss.

Melusine Strategy

Melusine casts AOE Fireballs on party members that do around 2k damage. Do not stand near other party members or you risk taking 2 Fireballs and dying. Circle blade is just a red circle AOE that does barely any damage but you shouldn't stand near Melusine if you're not melee.

Melusine casts Cursed Voice and Cursed Shriek. It is imperative you know the difference between these two debuffs, because one mistake means a wipe. Cursed-Voice has a triangle debuff icon while Cursed Shriek has a circular debuff icon. When the Cursed Voice debuff wears off it casts a conal AoE that petrifies enemies and allies in the direction your character is facing when the debuff wears off. When Cursed Shriek debuff wears off it casts a AoE petrifaction that petrifies all of the players in an area.

  • For the first phase, we have the MT/OT tanking Melusine at the north tip of the arena with all of our party spread out in a loose semi-circle. The point of this is to 1: avoid the double fireballs from hitting the same person, 2: ease the pressure of dealing with Cursed Voice. Anybody with voice need only turn around during the last 2-3 seconds of the debuff to blast behind them safely.

Throughout the fight, Renaud (the cyclops) spawns and tethers to the first person that strikes it and will follow him or her and one shot if him or her if it reaches them. The strategy for handling Renaud is to petrify it with the Cursed voice conal aoe. Renaud can be afflicted with heavy and cause them to basically stand still due to their inherent heavy debuff. Binds should be avoided at all costs as it removes their innate slow. The person Renaud is tethered to should kite around the outside to position the Renaud until Cursed Voice wears off and someone can petrify it. Getting too close to Renaud can nullify the effect of Cursed Voice due to hitbox detection. It's recommended to keep a certain distance between the debuff holder and Renaud. Damaging a petrified Renaud kills it, but do not kill them immediately because read on.

Cursed Shriek is a petrify that covers the entire area so you must use a petrified Renaud to break Line-Of-Sight with the raid and sort of "hide behind" it. Successfully being behind a Renaud when Cursed Shriek wears off will prevent Cursed Shriek from petrifying everyone.

  • To deal with Renauds, we have the OT Provoke.png  Provoke it and run around the arena. The closest person with voice is responsible for petrifying it is. This is the hardest part of the first phase.

Renauds spawn at a pretty constant rate, and as you progress into the fight other adds will spawn alongside it. Lamia Deathdancer is the first add that spawns at around 80% HP. It is a melee mini-medusa. It casts cleave and Circle Blade. The archer adds, Lamia Fatedealers, spawn at ~50% HP. These adds do a few abilities that deal lots of damage including an AOE and a targeted ability with a visible mark. The Lamia Prosector add will spawn at 35% HP. This add deals heavy magic damage, and has the ability to cast Petrifaction. When it uses the ability, if you are facing the boss, you will be petrified. Simply look away to avoid this effect. When Prosector dies, Melusine will gain this ability and begin to use it periodically. Be sure to kill The Prosector quickly as it deals heavy damage and when it is kept alive, Melusine absorbs it, gaining a buff and its remaining HP.

When Melusine is around 50% HP, the boss room begins to glow with poison in one of the three areas it is split into. After 15 seconds the glowing area explodes, it's pretty obvious and you are safe to run through it until it explodes but do not stand in it.

Additionally she gains a new ability called Tail venom. The ability that adds a Poison icon1.png Poison that must be dispelled off or it triggers an AOE.

Alisaie: That armor—No, it couldn't be!

If played 1.0

Alisaie: Be on your guard, [Forename]! Though it defies all reason that he should live, you must surely recognize that armor.
Alisaie: It belonged to the Black Wolf's equal. The legatus of the VIIth Legion. 

If did not play 1.0

Alisaie: Be on your guard, [Forename]! Though it defies all reason that he should live, I know of only one who wears such armor.
Alisaie: He whom the Empire raised as high as the Black Wolf himself. The legatus of the VIIth Legion.


Alisaie: I speak of the madman who brought the Meteor project to fruition... 
Alisaie: We face the White Raven, Nael van Darnus─harbinger of the Seventh Umbral Era!
???: Nael...van...Darnus?
???: Ah... That was the name of the fool who perished upon the eve of the promised age of glory. It should not be uttered within these hallowed halls.
Nael deus Darnus: Out of love for His loyal servant, the one true deity named me Nael deus Darnus.
Alisaie: The “one true deity”? Bahamut! He speaks of Bahamut!
Nael deus Darnus: O Lord Bahamut! Thy name is as sweet water to parched lips! How my heart swells at Thy sacred touch! 
Nael deus Darnus: This blessed sanctum is the domain of my god and His beloved children. Seek to defile its glory, and you will answer to me.

If played 1.0

Alisaie: How is this possible? Alphinaud told me of Nael's final defeat at your hands.

If did not play 1.0

Alisaie: How is this possible? From what Alphinaud has told me, Nael was slain on the eve of the Calamity.


Alisaie: Whatever the truth of the matter, we must be on our guard─there can be no reasoning with the worshipers of a primal.
