Just as warriors temper their spirits in battle, so too does the wandering minstrel hone his craft through colorful retellings of heroic deeds. His rendition of your triumph over the Ultima Weapon takes the threads of history and weaves them into an epic tapestry. However, his ballad contains so many embellishments and fabrications that it bears little resemblance to your own tale, and you wonder if he was even listening to you. Nevertheless, you find yourself utterly captivated─whisked away to a battlefield that exists only in your mind’s eye…Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood – Under the Moonlight
There is not much more I can say about this for when this Ultimate first came out I was focused on getting my hands onto the Thyrus Ultima so much that with bitter irony now that I have it, I don’t know what to do with it.
Speaking about the fight I enjoyed every single part of it and I do thank Taco Wipe Night, my raid group, for getting close to the end of Titan which allowed me to learn the rest of the fight in party finder (honestly after Titan it is simple enough) but I do think the part before orbs are annoying as heck and the enrage is pretty sweet on how it is done and sadly something I have been seen quite a few times.
My favourite part is the first three primals and how you have to go against what you would normally do to wake them up so you can pick up an aether stack to do four limit breaks back to back. The primals themselves have their normal attacks but were upgraded to have an extra feature and I loved this part of the fight. Ultima Weapon itself is fun but it gets enjoyable again once the primals come back to do their stuff!
It may just be myself but the music of this raid seems to be far better than the original fights and I think it may be because it is the Black Mage band version but overall man I love this ultimate but I do not think I will do another until Omega is released as an ultimate as there is no way I will pass on a chance to fight a golden Omega.
While it is sad it was not completed with Taco Wipe Night and the fact we were so close to clearing it – I do thank my brother for coming for quite a few party finder runs and the few that joined us until the end to clear the fight.
Regardless I now have the Thyrus Ultima, a weapon I wanted so much when I first saw it and something I see as an ultimate trophy that while I may not use it personally I would love to mount it onto a wall if possible or at the very least to leave it on a mannequin but for now I will hold it with glee as my hunt for the Thyrus Ultima is now over!
