  +
::*This is removed upon a complete wipe.
  +
*All Fomors may parry/shield block, recommended to fight from behind.

Groups on easier difficulties can get by on a player /BLM using sleepga, but BRD is the recommended sleeper for Very Difficult as Horde Lullaby II + [[Troubadour]] should grant 5+ minutes of sleep.
  +
*After the mobs wake up from the first sleep they will no longer be susceptible.
  +
  +
'''PLD or RUN, DD, DD, GEO, BRD, WHM'''
  +
*PLD or RUN gains hate on all the adds, the BRD JA horde sleepgas, and then the tank pulls the eye away.
  +
*Two DDs then go to town taking the adds down. Save NMs like Excalibur or Mjollnir for last, and the eye last of all.
  +
*If your group struggles at this then consider doing Difficult instead of Very.

'''Bozzetto Voyager Moogle''':
 
 
'''Uses the following TP Moves''':
 
:*'''Invite Over''': Summons Bozzetto Steward, which has a short-ranged aura consisting of extremely potent Dia and elemental(?) DoTs
 
:*'''Washtub''': AoE damage and stun
 
:*'''Mogsplosion''': AoE damage with knockback
 
:*'''Contaminated Concoction''': Disease
 
:*'''Somnic Shell''': short-timed AoE sleep
 
:*'''Crystaline Flare''': AoE light-based damage with flash and stun effects
 
:*'''Atra. Libations''': conal gaze terror
 
:*Can use any of the SP moves available to the starter jobs (e.g. Chainspell, Perfect Dodge, Mighty Strikes, Benediction, Manafont); usage seems to be dependent on HP; number of uses available varies according to difficulty; will have a visible white aura
 
 
'''Bozzetto Steward''':
 
:*has extremely potent Dia and elemental(?) DoT
 
:*does not move
 
:*will despawn over time (approx 1 minute)
 
 
'''Moogle''':
 
:*Does not move on Normal and lower difficulty; will roam on Difficult and Very Difficult
 
:*Provides an aura that will counter-act the Voyager Moogle's aura but also gives amnesia; aura only activated when boss uses SP
 
 
|Setups and Strategies=
 
 
 
 
'''Very Difficult''':
 
Setup: SMN x3, GEO, THF/PLD, RDM
 
 
Strategy:
 
*RDM gives Protect & Shell to the THF.
 
*GEO uses Bolster and Entrusts Indi-Languor on THF, Indi-Frailty on themselves and will use Geo-Torpor once the boss moogle is in position.
 
*SMN's have Ramuh's out and ready.
 
*THF will run in, Perfect Dodge, Flash & Sentinel. Moogles will move, if they remain close to the boss moogle in the center, then the THF will need to bring the boss moogle away from the helpers.
 
*RDM will Stymie Silence & Dia 3 then cast cures as needed.
 
*SMN will Astral Flow/Astral Conduit right out the gate at 100% HP once the RDM has debuffed. This is the only real way you can kill him if he uses Benediction as his first 1-hour, and even then it's not guaranteed.
 
*At 85% HP, THF will Larceny once the 1-hour animation goes off on the boss moogle unless it's Benediction. If it's Benediction, THF will need to Larceny if he uses Perfect Dodge, but you will most likely wipe unless your SMN's are stacked and can kill it before the aura becomes active and tick's twice. If the second 1-hour is Benediction, it's a wipe.
 
 
Alternate Strategy (not luck-based):
 
* PLD, BRD/WHM, COR X2, RNG (or COR), WHM
 
* Rolls: Hunter's and Monk's (for Subtle Blow), Samurai's and Chaos
 
* Barsilencera and Auspice (along with Subtle Blow will help reduce the chances of Invite Over)
 
* If the boss uses Invite Over, PLD should move a few steps away to avoid the spawn's aura.
 
* Boss uses SP at 85%, 65%, 45%, 25%, and 10% HP. Reduce boss HP down to 88%, 68%, etc. and stop all damage. Then look for a nearby moogle. Wait until that moogle starts moving and then drop the boss HP down to the trigger level. The idea is to make it to the safety moogles right as they are about to stop. (If the boss has an SP aura up and the moogle starts moving, there is a good chance death). No damage during this waiting phase so as to avoid AoE damage and Invite Over. Spam Curaga IV and Curaga V (WHM needs Eber's Pantaloons +1) to ensure that no one dies if the boss happens to use an AoE spell or ability that everyone can still survive. Using any type of bind effect on the moogle can be helpful.
 
* Save Rampart and Sacrosanctity for Chainspell; spam Finale to prevent the boss from self-curing.
 
* If anyone dies, stop damage just before the next SP trigger level and wait out the weakness before forcing the SP move on the boss. Do NOT get up near a steward or when an aura is out -- wait until nearby stewards despawn and/or SP auras to drop.
 
* This method is a sure way to win (unlike the SMN burn method) and does not require the use of SPs. Moreover, it is very easy on support jobs since only the PLD is ever in range of more dangerous moves such as Crys. Flare (high damage to non-tanks even with Shell V), Washtub and Atra. Lib. (stun/terrorize) followed by SP aura.
 
 
 
'''Difficult''':
 
*For D+ the regen moogles will roam around and not stay stationary.
 
*Boss will 2-hour at 85%, 65%, 45%, 25%, and 10% hp.
 
:*It helps to DPS during the periods the boss has not used 2-hour and you do not have amnesia.
 
*When boss uses 2-hour everyone should run to either regen moogle and stay close during the whole time amnesia is on.
 
:*It helps to slow down damage before a trigger point and pull boss close to a regen moogle, just depends how alert everyone in your party is.
 
*Keep using dispel to remove pro/shell on boss, this keeps boss from curing himself.
 
*The stewards will randomly spawn around the boss while you are DPSing.
 
:*Just move a bit away from them when that happens.
 
*Silence during 2-hour phase helps. D and VD can easily be melee burned.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Normal''': Solo-able on BLU/WAR using healer trusts that do not spread out (e.g. Koru-Moru, King of Hearts, Ferrous Coffin, etc).
 
:*Cherukiki and Apururu are usable as well, but they will require some additional management (by way of disengaging and re-engaging). Cherukiki can cast Silence
 
:*Required BLU spells include Silent Storm, Subduction, Blank Gaze (or Geist Wall), Magic Fruit, Occultation
 
:*Pull with Silent Storm and dispel with Blank Gaze (Geist Wall); keep Silence on to avoid Cure VI during Chainspell (can heal around 68k)
 
:*The gimmick is simple: when the boss uses Invite Over, move your party away from the Steward to avoid the potent DoT aura. When it uses its SP move (any one among those from the starter jobs), the boss itself will have the same aura (visible on the boss itself). At this point, move toward one of the two Moogles who themselves have a beneficial aura that will counteract the aura from the boss. Additionally, the Moogles will have an amnesia aura during this time. Avoid engaging the boss if possible so that it does not gain TP and use Invite Over during its SP (because you will be forced to run to the other Moogle and may possibly die, or your NPCs might die). Use Occultation and Magic Fruit to stay alive. If you need healing from your NPCs, engage to get healed, and then disengage until the boss' aura is down (otherwise they will waste MP trying to Erase and use healing spells to remove aura effects). Try to fight away from the Moogles so you will always have a safe spot during the boss' aura. On Normal, there should only be 4 (?) uses of SP.
 
:*Re-apply silence when necessary even at the cost of possibly losing one of the Moogles (but do not kill both of them). Best to fight along the outer walls and move in a circle when Stewards are spawned.
 
:*When/if you are out of MP (including NPCs), use Subduction and run to the opposite side of the arena to rest (or to simply stand still) to allow the NPCs to recover MP/HP.
 
:*Other NPCs that might work well: Selh'teus and Arciela as they both provide AoE healing; Selh'teus also replenishes MP
 
 
'''Easy''': Same as Normal.
 
 
'''Very Easy''': Solo-able on almost any job. '''Do not kill the Moogles that appear at the start.''' Summon NPCs and fight on top of the Moogle on the right (as viewed when zoning in).

This page holds all the old information for Ambuscade.
We are working to improving this page. There is now a history table recording the entirety of ambuscade battles.
The archive has been changing from years and months to monster family entries as battles are repeating or sometimes changing and being updated, leaving multiple archives.

Currently all of Volume 1 has been set up this way, and Volume 2 will be done gradually over time.
