Sigmascape V3.0.png
Known simply as the “Guardian,” this foe is described by Cid as the machine responsible for defending a capital city. As a creation of otherworldly engineering it is impossible to know exactly what weapons it will bring to bear─only that this will be a contest of force versus overwhelming brute force.

  1. Defeat the Guardian : 0/1

Guardian has 4 distinct phases, during which it uses the following moves and mechanics:

General Abilities

These abilities will be used throughout all phases.

Attack Name Description
Screens To the North of the arena, behind the boss, are two screens. These will display an image representing whatever program the boss is Loading, allowing players to pre-position to avoid upcoming mechanics.
Wall Barrier touching it deals damage and applies a 20-second Paralysis debuff that cannot be dispelled.
Magitek Ray The boss will turn to a random player and begin casting this, charging up an unmarked line AoE. When the cast finishes, he will shoot out a wide laser beam that deals moderate damage and inflicts a Vulnerability stack.
Arm & Hammer Tankbuster.
Prey Missile Targets a random DPS with a red marker over their head. Deals moderate damage to the target and applies a fire debuff.
Load Loads the program displayed on the larger Screen. The boss will gain special abilities and summon adds that must be tanked by the OT. Possible Loads are Ultros, Dadaluma, Air Force, or Bibliotaph.

Advice and Tips

  • If the boss turns to face in your direction while using Magitek Ray, just be sure to sidestep it if you aren't sure if you are in the way or not. Better safe than sorry!
  • Make sure to keep an eye on the Screens so you know what's about to Load. The monster on the smaller screen is what will spawn next time Load is cast.

Ultros Phase

Attack Name Description
Ultros Ultros in all his pink glory will appear on the large Screen. The boss uses Ink Blot and Tentacle Simulation during this. After a while, Ultros himself will spawn in a corner of the room. Should be picked up by the OT. The boss uses Chain Cannon and Main Cannon during this.
Ink Blot Spawns large AoE circles under each players. After a few seconds these will go off, dealing moderate damage to players caught inside.
Tentacle Simulation Summons large tentacles that will slam down in a line AoE that deals heavy damage after a few seconds.
Chain Cannon The boss will fly up into the sky and target a random player's location with a thin tether. After a moment, he will beging casting consecutive unmarked AoEs that deal moderate damage on the ground there. Players should move away immediately so they don't die. Followed by Main Cannon.
Main Cannon Immediately after Chain Cannon. The boss will drop a proximity AoE where he was just casting Chain Cannon. Players should move away from the AoE so they don't take excessive damage.

Advice and Tips

  • Make sure to move out of the way of Chain Cannon as standing in it will cause death.

Dadaluma Phase

Attack Name Description
Dadaluma An overly muscular person with red pants will appear on the large Screen. The boss will use Shockwave and Chakra Burst during this. After a while, Dadaluma himself will spawn in a corner of the room. Should be picked up by the OT.
Shockwave As soon as Load is finished casting, the boss will do a massive knockback that can easily boot people into the Wall Barrier. Players should stack close to him with their backs towards a corner or make use of knockback abilities.
Chakra Burst Eight meteor circles will spawn around the room. Every player must stand in one of the circles to prevent the group from taking excess damage. For each circle missed, all players will get a Vulnerability stack and take moderate damage.
Aura Cannon Used by the Dadaluma. A wide line AoE aimed at a random player.

Advice and Tips

  • Stand close to the boss when he starts this phase so you aren't punted into the Wall Barrier by Shockwave.
  • Each player needs to make sure they are standing in a Chakra Burst. Try to leave the ones closest to the boss for melee players so they can continue attacking the boss.

Air Force Phase

Attack Name Description
Air Force A mechanical ship with a face will appear on the large Screen. The boss will use Diffractive Laser, Missile Simulation, Diffractive Plasma, Bomb Deployment during this. After a while, Air Force itself will spawn in a corner of the room. Should be picked up by the OT.
Diffractive Laser As soon as Load is finished casting, the boss will make a large AoE circle centered underneath it. Being hit by it deals moderate damage and applies a Vulnerability stack.
  • Air Force will use a variation of this ability to make a massive 90° conal AoE in a random direction.
Missile Simulation Spawns numerous missiles along each side of the arena. These will slowly float across to the other side, and players need to dodge them so they don't take extra damage and get knocked back into additional Missiles. The boss uses Diffractive Plasma during this.
Diffractive Plasma Used during Missile Simulation. Deals raid-wide AoE damage.
Bomb Deployment Two bombs will spawn near the center, with a blue and red round loop on either side. After a few seconds, it will explode, dealing moderate damage. One of these loops will glow brighter than the other; players should stand on the glowing loop to disarm the bomb. Standing on the wrong side will detonate it early.

Advice and Tips

  • While the Missiles from Missile Simulation are quite slow, it's still easy for players to forget about them and get clipped, which could potentially cause a chain reaction. Watch out!

Bibliotaph Phase

Attack Name Description
Bibliotaph An angry looking metal wardrobe with arms and legs will appear on the large Screen. The boss uses Demon Simulation during this. After a while, Bibliotaph itself will spawn in a corner of the room. Should be picked up by the OT.
Demon Simulation Spawns 6 summoning circles around the room that require 3 people to stand in it at the same time to lock it. When the cast finishes, any remaining unlocked circles will spawn a demon that players must kill.
Magic Burst Used by Bibliotaph. Does a massive AoE centered on Bibliotaph.

Advice and Tips

  • The group should split up for Demon Simulation, with 2 groups of 3 players moving clockwise around the room to get all of the Summoning Circles. Try to leave the melee on the boss so they can continue DPSing. It may be beneficial for new groups to assign players to a group with a leader marked so they know who to follow and where to go.
  • If too many Demons from the Demon Simulation escape, it can quickly devolve into a wipe as they deal moderate damage to the OT and Bibliotaph will likely spawn while you are dealing with them.
