After doing this several times for different people with my BLM who had (at the time) 3100 HP, I simply have to laugh at half of these posts recommending more than 3400 HP.
BLM has a great ability called manaward. It actually negates almost all of geocrush's damage. While it doesn't seem to work on earthen fury, I have not once died as a result.
My first attempt was done in full demagoguge and DL accessories with Ifrit's cudgel using raisins.That's right: I didn't even have dark light main pieces yet just demagogue.
Which is fine if you play perfectly. You should know as well as I do, MOST people do not play perfectly. I only suggested more DL, because you might as well start building DL while you wait to kill Titan. Any improvements over AK gear will only improve your chances of killing Titan.
That said, a full AK gear party can kill Titan, if they know what they are doing. Hell, you could do it in AF if you can dodge and your healers can heal.
Unfortunately, that isn't what I was referring to.
You need a minimum of 3k HP to not be a detriment to your healers in Titan, as his stomps are unavoidable, and low hp is a death sentence post-heart phase. This does not mean you should settle for 3k, as 3500ish is preferred.
Along with all the other inaccuracies you and others have posted:
From what I've been reading, they may not even be looking at your gear specifically. Apparently, anything under 3400 HP and you probably won't survive.
If you don't have the health, then you're a liability and nothing but an annoyance to the healers. 600-700 up to 8 times in a row is a lot of health, plus Earthen Fury *will* one-shot you if you're too low.
He's a massive check on group performance, personal performance, and gear.
And no, your weapon doesn't really cut it. Spend the time and get Garuda's.
Contradiction to yourself:
Well, no one can survive the stomps, so you have the healers spam medica 2 through the stomps. It's the only way to survive.
You recommended an amount of HP that BLM really shouldn't be expected to have outside of relic and AF2 + darklight mix plus you neglected some of BLM's damage reduction mechanics that make Titan a non-issue in terms of survivability. Tumult's damage is not instantaneous. Your healers will be spamming AoE heals during the tumult stomps. Medica 2 takes 3.5 seconds to cast without spell speed meaning you have to somehow survive 600*3 damage done to you during that time. Everyone in the game can do so. Spike damage, if your healers are slow, ranges towards 2.4k. Again, everyone can handle that. No level 50 has lower than that.
The only HP concern is that of the tank during phase 3.
Latest Titan win Random Titan parse:
You did 16k dmg and beat Titan? You sure?
My latest titan win:
Titan has slightly
more dmg/hp than your parse suggests.
I actually reviewed the parse earlier this morning only to realize what you just did. I don't know where that one came from. It's labeled TitanParse in my logs. :3 Moreover, I can't seem to find any of my Titan fights: only Caduceus and onward. I'll have to get fresh data while you gather fresh information～
