So i have had a few issues with ae fights and i was wondering if there was some feed back.
1) In Wanderers palace, on the slime fight: what are the slimes resistant too/weak too, typically slimes are blunt resistant, magic weak in other FF games, which made me think a blm should have been fine.
When I go WHM i ae with holy and it seems 2 ae is enough to help kill everything
When I go as pld I have 1 ae, so switch to sword stance, pop + dmg buffs, ae circle of scorn /pray dd finish it
When I go as relic + 1 mnk, we never seem to be able to finish them unless we have certain classes.
MNK + BLM + SCH + PLD = fail, even with everyone with relics, we just couldnt ae them down, i though blm were better at ae and it would be fine, but nope, 10+ tries will all DL geared and relic people and no go.
MNK + BLM + WHM + PLD = easy win
MNK + BRD + anything else = easy win
2) Finally beat Aurum vale
PLD + MNK + BLM + WHM, me as the pld, mnk and blm both relic geared with DL. WHM is pug from DF.
The only way we could kill the fruit before they hatch was having the WHM run in with holy and cleric stance, and it took about 2 casts to help finish them. First round fruit died fine, second round 1 of the fruit hatched, immediately killed, round 3 we had 3 survive and we ignored the fruit and burned the last 3% because WHM was oom.
Is there a trick to killing these, because once the adds spawn if you dont destroy them immediately the tank dies on the next ae.
Obviouslly i am a monk and am well aware that mnk and pld are the weakest ae classes in the game, but i dont feel these fights should be so hard.
