Further Notes
  • Defeating the Arch Dynamis Lord does not grant a time extension.
  • Can spawn multiple clones, forcing some of your melees to disengage.
  • Number of clones appears to be based on ADL's HP at the time of cloning. Recommended to take it easy on the first form.
  • Defeating the 'real' one will end the fight, attempting to kill any of the others will result in more clones spawning.
  • Ramuh's Shock Squall is particularly effective, stunning all clones for up to ~10 seconds.
  • If alliance wipes, Arch Dynamis Lord becomes nonaggressive and returns to his spawn point. If his clones are up, they will all line up in front of the castle.
