  • Fought in Reisenjima Sanctorium for The Orb's Radiance.
  • Casts absorption Dark Magic and tier III Elemental Magic.
    • Later in the battle, she begins casting tier VExclamation spells and -ja spells.
  • Iroha assists in the fight by casting Flare and Flare II repeatedly for about 700-800 damage. If Iroha dies, she will revive herself and rejoin the fight. There seems to be no limit on the amount of times she can revive herself. Exclamation
  • Iroha casts Arise on dead players, at which point Alter Egos can be resummoned. As a result, the only way to lose the fight is to run out of time. She must be in range of you (30"?) to cast so you can lose the fight if you die out of range of her.
  • Uses Ceiling Rupture, dealing strong conal damage in front of her, tearing apart Alter egos in the AoE.
  • Can be afflicted with weight from Subduction.
  • Her powerful physical attacks require a competent tank. Rune Fencers are effective.
  • Begins absorbing damage after using Primordial Surge. Gem on its head will glow red during this phase. Phase will end after using Waning Vigor.
  • Waning Vigor can do substantial damage (perhaps proportional to melee damage absorbed?)
  • When its HP is below 25%, Waning Vigor will be replaced by a more powerful version called Expunge
  • Seems to be weak against Thunder-based magic. Information
  • Regular melee attacks are magical in nature.
  • Changes which elemental magics are used based on the weather in the area.
