General Notes

Shadow Lord


  • The boss of mission 5-2 for all three nations.
  • Players of any allegiance may enter the same battlefield, as long as they are at or past this mission in their current nation.
  • He has two forms. First form has 10,000 HP; second form has 4,000 HP. Both forms must be defeated to win.

First Form

  • Special attacks:
    • Umbra Slash: Single target damage.
    • Dark Nova: AOE moderate darkness damage.
    • Can cast Tier II -ga spells, Ice Spikes, Frost, Rasp, Drain, and Aspir.
  • In the first form, he can switch between physical or magical immunity.
    • It is immune to physical damage when it is attacking physically, and it is immune to magic when it is holding out a glowing fist and attacking only with magic.
    • While immune to magic, he will use Dark Nova and can cast Black Magic. Dark Nova tends to indicate that he will switch to physical immunity.
    • During physical immunity, he can use a variety of TP attacks, including Giga Slash, Kick Back and Umbra Smash.
  • Defeating the first form will get you a cutscene. You will immediately be returned to the fight. There is little opportunity to rest.

Second Form

  • Special attacks:
    • Implosion: AOE damage, ignores Utsusemi.
      • It will continuously use Implosion approximately every 10 seconds until defeated.

Shadow Lord ★


First Form

  • Switches between physical and magical immunity every 60 seconds or 20,000 damage.
  • In the first form, Shadow Lord has access to Damning Edict, Swath of Silence, Giga Slash, and Umbra Smash.
  • Damning Edict will signal the start of Physical Damage physical immunity and end Magical Damage magical immunity.
    • While physically immune, the Shadow Lord's sword will gain a purple aura.
    • While not guaranteed, the Shadow Lord favors casting Firaja after using this move.
    • Formless Strikes bypasses his physical immunity.
  • Swath of Silence will signal the start of Magical Damage magical immunity and end Physical Damage physical immunity.
    • While magically immune, the Shadow Lord's palm will face up and glow purple.
  • Casts Fire V, Flare II, and Firaja.

Second Form

  • You will receive a brief cutscene and be placed back in front of the door.
  • The Shadow Lord will immediately aggro.
  • Will exclusively use Bowels of Agony and Implosion (nameless in normal chat log).
  • No longer melees or casts on players.
  • Implosion (30') will be used approximately every 10 seconds as a standard attack.
  • Bowels of Agony has a limited range. Allowing for a correctly positioned White Mage to stand in range to Curaga, but out of range of the move.
  • Make sure the Shadow Lord is claimed. If defeated unclaimed during it's final 1% animation, spoils will not be received.

During battle some monsters may change resistances.

100% denotates that a monster takes full damage.

  • E.g At 5% a foe takes -95% damage.

Tiers of 50% or less guarantee an enfeeble resist with 5% causing immunity.
