  • [dev1093] Enfeebling Magic Resistance of Monsters
Update07-23-2012 4.jpg
  • A log message now appears when a monster resists an enfeebling spell which enables the player to determine whether a monster possesses complete resistance to a particular type of enfeebling magic.
  • As long as the monster does not completely resist the effect, it is possible to inflict enfeebling magic upon them. The number of affectable monsters has drastically increased.
  • A new system has been added in which using enfeebling magic multiple times will lower the target enemy's resistance. This system is known as "Immunobreak."
  • When an Immunobreak occurs after the enemy has resisted a particular enfeebling magic, the resistance of the enemy to that effect will decrease by a certain amount.
  • Immunobreaks can stack and continually lower an enemy's resistance.
  • The more times the enfeebling magic is resisted, the greater the likelihood that an Immunobreak will occur.
  • When the enfeebling effect is successfully applied, the resistance will reset.
  • If the effect is continuously applied, the enemy will slowly gain more resistance, and eventually Immunobreaks will no longer occur.
  • Note that some monsters have complete resistance to enfeebling effects.
(Immunobreaks will not occur on enemies which have complete resistance.)
  • Immunobreaks only apply to enfeebling effects (magic abilities based on Enfeebling Magic skill level).

Heroines' Holdfast

Heroines' Holdfast is a special battlefield created to celebrate FINAL FANTASY XI's tenth anniversary and takes place on Nyzul Isle. The holdfast houses multiple heroines; one for each floor. Participants make their way through certain floors and finally battle the heroine who awaits them in her chamber on the corresponding floor.

Entry Requirements

  • Have one's main job at level 99.
  • Form a party of three to six people.
  • There is a time restriction of fifteen minutes, which can be extended by an additional fifteen minutes each time a heroine is defeated.

Heroines' Holdfast Overview

  1. Trade an Athena Orb to the Runic Seal at the Nyzul Isle staging point (J-9) in the : Alzadaal Undersea Ruins to enter the battlefield.
  2. *The Athena Orb will disappear upon entering the holdfast.
    Update07-23-2012 11.jpg
  3. Transfer to the antechamber.
    There are five runes of transfer in the antechamber that teleport participants to each heroine's floor, and deciding which heroine your party shall do battle with before trading your Athena Orb should save valuable time at this juncture.
  4. The following runes of transfer teleport players to the corresponding heroine's floor:
  5. Update07-23-2012 12.jpg
    * : Starting Location
    Rune of Transfer #1: Lion
    Rune of Transfer #2: Prishe
    Rune of Transfer #3: Aphmau
    Rune of Transfer #4: Lilisette
    Rune of Transfer #5: Mumor

    *Floor 1 is the easiest while floor 5 is the most difficult.
  6. While searching for the Rune of Transfer ??? that leads to the heroine's chamber, players can both fight the enemies that populate the floor and talk with NPCs who occasionally give out temporary items or make the journey easier.
  7. Once certain conditions have been met, players may use the Rune of Transfer ??? to teleport to the heroine's chamber on that floor.
  8. *Examining a Rune of Transfer ??? before meeting its usage requirements will provide you with a hint on how to meet them.
  9. Confront the heroine!
  10. Defeating a heroine within the fifteen-minute time limit assures one's victory, adds another fifteen minutes to the party's remaining time, and transports the party back to the antechamber for a go at another floor of enemies and another heroine!
    Failing to defeat a heroine within the appointed time or having one's whole party get KO'd ends one's stay in the holdfast.
