The L50 Ifrit fight is a beast. Doctor Mog and his crew tried like 50 times and they still couldn't get him past half health.

well according to all the whiners on here battle is broken and nerfed so maybe thats how they made it hard LOL making ifrit immpossible !!!!! maybe they should make it like before te path when mobs died after 5 seconds !

i joke.

im glad it seems a challanege so far but im sure a strategy will be worked out soon enough even if its still hard but do-able

I really think until people start equipping materia this fight will be extremely difficult to defeat.

Just an un-informed guess but I think the bonuses from materia are pretty significant.

The official website showed an attack +50 materia, I think... assuming you could shove seven (or more, if you're risky!) on to your equipment, then we're looking at a potential attack +350 - I'm sure that would make a noteworthy difference!

I've been curious about this, are we talking about seven materia stuck onto one piece of equipment I have or are we talking about me wearing seven materia in total?

Also, I think it is good that they don't beat it on their "first attempt", it doesn't have to be like AV, but considering it is the hardest battle in the game atm it should at least pose a significant challenge imo.

After watching one attempt I feel excited and frustrated at the same time.

I feel excited because it is cool to see a big boss like this who has some cool moves and seems fun to fight. I think it looks a bit funny when he "dashes" forward to the other side of the ring since he doesn't actually seem to be aiming for anyone, he just seems to go off in a direction which to me is a bit strange (Maybe not random where he goes, but why doesn't he actually aim for anyone?), but either way it looks fun and cool.

What frustrates me is that while the boss seems challenging for sure, it really looks like they (The one streaming anyway) are struggling just as much with the UI and mechanics as the fight itself. I know this is something SE are working on which is really great, but watching this really turns me off in a way. Hope they can get the UI etc. up to par soon.

Probably has a random target the first time, but after that it charges to a spot in the ring that it hasn't already been to. Pretty lame. Take 3 steps to the left... wait til that part of the fight is over.

You don't sound convinced, but I don't really blame you. It's pretty simple. Moderate swipe damage to keep people spread out. Minor AoE damage for everyone. If the pillar of flame move(sounds familiar) targets you, move away from your group. DPS down the spikes and avoid damage. Survive astral flow. Have the presence of mind to not die in a ******* fire.

/training wheels off

Seeing you guys unable to touch him because of his moving around so much is torturous lol.
