Now that Endwalker is here and many of us have finished the story, it is normal to think about which classes are the best for raiding Extreme and Savage, and today we are going to talk about how Final Fantasy XIV has changed in that regard.
Before looking at this list, there is one thing to keep in mind. Yes, the damage is important, but there are also more factors to consider. For example, I would prefer to have a Dancer in a party, even though his DPS is low, for all the other benefits he gives. Healers, in addition, are divided between shields and regen, and it is good to have both, etc. Today, apart from talking about numbers, we are also going to talk about virtues and synergies.
Best classes for Extreme and Savage raiding in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker
Today’s information comes from the statistics collected by FFLogs. Keep in mind that there is more to the game than mathematics and that it does not have to mean that you have to do the party compositions 100% like this. That said, if we focus only on damage, we have the following results:
Given these statistics, the ideal party to current raiders would be :
- Dark knight
- Warrior / Gunbreaker
- Monk / Samurai
- Red Mage
- White mage
Best DPS for raiding Extreme and Savage in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker
In the case of DPS, we have to consider that the ideal is to have a composition of 2 melees and 2 ranged depending on what mechanics. Here, the winner of the melees is quite clear: Reaper, the new class of the title has the best average damage of all, while it is surpassed in best point damage by Monk.
Of course, given how unusual that class is compared to all the other melees, it is very likely that we will see more Samurais and Dragoons accompanying our essential Reapers.
On the other hand, I personally think that Dancer, despite having the lowest damage of all DPS, is a key class when it comes to making high-end content. His Dance Partner ability and his buffs mean that, although he does not boast of high numbers, he empowers all his companions in a brutal way. As for casters, Black Mage has more damage than Red Mage, but RDM can help you revive people during combat.
Best Tanks to raide Extreme and Savage in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker
In the section on Tanks, the subject is much more divided. While Dark Knight has the highest damage of all by a considerable difference, it is also the worst invulnerability ability tank in the game. Still, this is not a reason to rule it out, and if you’re looking to have the optimal composition, it should be in your party.
Warrior, meanwhile, has higher minimum damage than the Gunbreaker, tying for the maximum. This, along with its more than optimal recovery abilities, makes it a perfect second tank to complete the game’s blue role, although the knights of the pistol sabers may well take its place. Paladin, on the other hand, suffers from a lack of damage that can be compensated by a better invul and a ranged rotation that offers more uptime.
Best Healers to raide Extreme and Savage in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker
The healer’s issue is also more complex than just looking at the numbers and deciding. Final Fantasy XIV, and even more Endwalker, is designed so that we can include a shield healer and a regeneration healer in our parties. With the arrival of Sage, we now have two of each, and that’s something to keep in mind when doing our calculations.
Looking at the difference in damage between Sage and Scholar, it’s clear that the new class should be your priority when including a shield healer in your party. Yes, it is complicated, but considering that it competes with Scholar, one of the more complex support classes to control, the choice should be quite easy.
On the other hand, Regeneration Healers, White Mage, and Astrologian are diametrically opposite classes. If you’re going to include a Dark Knight in your party (and you should), it’s almost mandatory to bring a White Mage with you. Dark Knight’s invulnerability ability (Living Dead) will kill the Tank if it is not healed for 100% of its life before its effect ends, so Benediction, White Mage’s ability to heal butt is ideal for combat. The same in Extreme is not so necessary, but when the Savage raids arrive, you will see that it is very common to have to eat a Tank Buster with invul and swap after it anyway.
On the other hand, while it is true that Astrologian can deal extra damage with his cards, going with White Mage is a safer bet because of its potential for heals. That is, once you and your group have completely dominated the fight and without problem, you can change White Mage for Astro to scratch more damage and finish the matches earlier.
Taking all this into account, I want to emphasize again that Final Fantasy XIV is a very flexible game in this regard. There are no unviable classes, but there are less ideal ones. With this knowledge, you can now start to consider to what extent you want to optimize your training and go for that postgame content. To give it cane!
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Korisca
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of Security on Vandelay Island.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Korisca in Hi-Fi Rush.
Korisca is the fourth main boss that players will get to face in Hi-Fi Rush. Players will fight her in the 6th stage of the game where Chai will break into her office to talk her out rather than fighting but you will end up getting fighting her. Korisca fight is different than the previous boss fights and at the start, you will get to parry and dodge her attacks.
At the start, you will get to parry attacks by pressing the parry button which is B at the perfect timing of her attacks. Before she gets to attack you, you will listen a beat to which she readies her attacks. You need to memorize that beat and press the Parry button in the same order and time to perfectly parry her attacks. After parrying her attacks three times, she will use Wind Attacks which are un-parryable.
You will have to use the dodge button which is RB to dodge the wind attack and use the parry to parry the rest of the attacks. Un-parryable attacks are shown with a wind symbol before she gets to attack you. As you deplete her HP one time, her health will regenerate and she will throw more fast-paced and longer combos at you.
Make sure to memorize all the hits of the combo and press the parry and dodge buttons accordingly. You will not get to land any combo or special attack because you want her to join your team in taking down SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Zanzo
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of the R&D Branch where all the AI Development of SPECTRA happens.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Zanzo in Hi-Fi Rush.
Zanzo is the third boss of the game which players will encounter in the fourth stage of the game. Defeating Zanzo takes a bit of an alternative way rather than fighting him in a 1v1 battle. Zanzo has created many machines and tools with his AI Development skills and players will have to go through all the waves of enemies that Zanzo has created. By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.
Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.
The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo. You will get to fight the Drones for which you will have to parry their attacks. Parrying their attacks will give you the opportunity to hit them again and you will be able to take them out in no time. Call Peppermint as well while fighting the drones.
In the third and last chorus, you will make your way to the lava area where you will have to dodge the falling lava balls. Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.
Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.
Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.
To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.
Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.
She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.
After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
