Alexander - The Eyes of the Creator.png
Raised from the waters by the thrice-mad Illuminati, the steel colossus Alexander yet towers over the Thaliak, bleeding the hinterlands dry with a thirst for aether that will not be slaked. The time has come for action. As Y'shtola and Master Matoya seek to magically sever the primal's death grip on the land, you will take to the skies with Cid in hopes of securing an ingress through the colossus's mighty pate. The realm itself cries out for succor—will you rise to answer its call?

Advice and Tips

  • Keep the boss faced away from the group and have the tanks stack at the front for Frontal Cleave.
Refurbisher 0
Divider3.png
Refurbisher 0 has only 1 distinct phase, during which it uses the following moves and mechanics.
Attack Name Description
Stockpile Consumes any scrap from dead robots available on the platform. Used to rebuild missing body parts.
Scrap Tankbuster. Long line AoE directed at the MT. Keep the boss facing away from the group.
Scrap Meteors Random players will be marked with orange arrow markers. After a few seconds, a meteor made of scrap will land on the player with no adverse effects. Used to avoid Scrap Burst.
Scrap Burst Deals moderate raid-wide AoE damage and debuffs players. Hiding behind a Scrap Meteor negates the damage and debuffs.
Power Generators 1-2 of these will spawn around the room. Players should pick them up and drop them on top of immobile Adds to wake them up.
Adds Spawn as inactive machina. Use Power Generators to wake them up. Should be tanked in the Lava Corner so they will melt. Adds that are in Lava Corners already can be ignored, as they will melt on their own. Any adds that are not dead when the Lava Corner rises and are standing in it will explode and deal heavy damage to the raid.
Lava Corner Used to melt Adds to prevent the boss from acquiring new body parts through Stockpile. Identifiable through the corner walls pulsing with a zigzag line. Standing in the Lava while it's active will apply a ~13 second DoT that can't be dispelled.
Scrapline Massive 270° conal AoE towards the front of the boss. Safe spot is a 90° space directly behind it.
Full-metal Faust Drops down with a proximity marker. After landing, tethers to the boss and prevents it from taking any damage. If it stands in an active Lava Corner, it will wipe the raid. After dying, the tether and resulting boss invulnerability will remain until his remains are melted by the Lava Corner.
Scrapbomb Obvious stack mechanic.
Double Scrapline If the boss manages to Stockpile enough to regain his left arm, all Scraplines will change to double scrapline, where there is no safe spot so all players will be forced to take heavy damage from the hit.

Advice and Tips

  • Make sure to drag all of the adds into the upcoming Lava Corner so that they will melt, preventing the boss from absorbing them with Stockpile.
  • Lava Corners will come much faster during Full-metal Faust, so the OT will need to keep moving to dodge them. When it is nearing death, drop it in what will be the next upcoming Lava Corner so that it will melt and you can resume attacking the boss.
  • After Faust, the boss will occasionally activate two Lava Corners at once.
