What i am curious about is:
a) 500HP gap between the HP of the Lalafell and Hyur GLA's... that's no small amount?
b) the party set up 2thm,2gla,2arc,1cnj,1mrd, lnc + pug getting the shaft this round?
c) Elezen close to 1000HP less then Lalafell on THM?
d) Lalafell's HP in general, the MRD even has more HP then the GLA Hyur.
As for the fight it seems it will need 2 main tanks for crowd control 1 off tank/dps, 2dps and 3 mages. Should be interesting to say the least. I can't wait to see how the fight gets optimized by the players.
I would assume that the video is only there to display an example of the differences that can be achieved. Since we are going back to non-fixed stats, we will be able to have a wide variety in builds... Not that it will happen (people will lock on to min/maxing for their respective classes). But, it's the thought that counts.
Don't get me wrong, I am sure there is a hint somewhere about what to do, or how to do it, but considering how well the hint went over with Ifrit, they may hold off on this one just to see how people do (just like they are not giving step by step instructions on the holiday event this time).
