General Notes
  • Upon spawning, immediately begins using Just Desserts.
  • Just Desserts spawns x4 adds (Drisheen (BLM), Haupia (WHM), Kacamak (BLM), with Bio, Plague, Doom, and Curse auras.
  • If Just Desserts is used again, more adds will spawn on top of existing ones.
  • You cannot afford a single resist. Consider opening up with Elemental Seal Stun and having a dedicated player or two on rotations.
  • With buffs, a player should be fine landing stun without boosts from things like Elemental Seal.
  • Initially has a moderate amount of DT-% which is removed by staggering it.
    • Blue.png is achieved by magic bursting high tier Element: Fire Fire spells. Procing blue will terrorize Zerde.
  • Apart from being largely dependent on a competent stunner this is a fairly straightforward battle.

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.

Zerde is an Iraqi dessert. It is a sweet pudding from rice that is colored yellow with saffron and popularly served at weddings, birthdays, and other occasions.

Eating too many sweets is considered unhealthy though, but not as unhealthy for you as Zerde is. The only thing it will be forcing down your throat is sweet death as it's bio aura (heart disease?) and custardy goons will put you into a sweet induced coma.
