Arcus Blades

From BG FFXI Wiki

General Notes
  • Casts single target tier IV-VI elemental magic, Comet, and Holy II depending on the day of the week.
    • Starts with the element of the day before moving to the next one.
    • Increases in elemental tier (IV→VI) the longer it stays on the current element.
  • Most defensive buffs (Blink, Utsusemi, Shell, Phalanx, Protect, etc) will cause Arcus Blades to respond with dispelga which will remove two buffs.
    • This also causes Arcus Blades to rage. This will increase its power significantly and choose higher tier nukes.
  • Absorbs magic damage of its current element.
  • Melee and Dirl Whorl damage are comparatively low to its magic damage.
