Walkthrough

  • Once you enter the battlefield, you have 5 poles you can trigger, numbered 1 through 5. Those are numbered in order of difficulty. Each portal has a single dungeon floor, Nyzul Isle-style, but with very little randomization.

1 = Lion (Easiest) 2 = Prishe 3 = Nashmeira 4 = Lilisette 5 = Mumor (Hardest)

Dungeon Sections

Lion

Prishe

Nashmeira

  • Enemies: Nashmeira, Mnejing, Ovjang
  • Cheerleader: Luzaf
  • Nashmeira herself is less dangerous than her puppets.
  • Her weapon skill Imperial Authority causes damage to one target, knocks them back, stuns, and resets hate. She runs around randomly for a while after using this move.
  • Nashmeira has a high reduction to damage taken until her automatons are defeated.
  • The real danger lies with her 2 puppets: Mnejing and Ovjang.
  • Ovjang is a Spiritreaver, spamming --ga IV and V spells.
  • Mnejing is a Valoredge, focusing on Automaton Weapon Skills.
  • One strategy here is to kill the BLM first, then just go for Nashmeira.
  • She has some abilities that can hurt a bit, but if you downed the BLM without too much trouble, you are essentially in the clear.

Lilisette

Mumor

  • Enemy: Mumor
  • Cheerleader: Uka Totlihn
  • Mumor is the most dangerous one.
  • EXTREMELY high HP.
    • On the test servers, with all have relic gear (no Item Levels) the fight literally took ~25mins.
  • Mumor casts tier V nukes, and tier IV -ga and -ja nukes.
  • Lovely Miracle Waltz: Single target damage, knockback, and terror
  • Shining Summer Samba: Single target damage, defense and magic defense down
  • Super Crusher Jig: Single target damage, knockback, full dispel
  • Neo Crystal Jig: AoE damage, knockback, attack and magic attack down
  • Many of her abilities wipe shadow images.
    • A well-geared paladin should be decent.
  • The meat of the fight happens at 25% when the music changes to the Shadow Lord theme.
  • At this point, her HP is restored to 50%, she speeds up significantly, deals additional damage, and gains a damage reduction trait.
  • New abilities in phase 2:
    • Eternal Vana Illusion: Single target high damage
    • Final Eternal Heart: 20' AoE Instant KO.
      • She uses an ability below 25% that inflicts instant death to anyone who does NOT stand close to her. Once she is about to do this, Uka Totlihn will say in chat: "I have a bad feeling about this... All of you! Get close to Mumor before it's too late!" Roughly 15 seconds after, she does the ability.

Completion

  • Once all five heroines have been defeated, the run will end immediately and the title "Unsung Heroine" will be granted to all party members.

All together

  • If the Holdfast is reentered by someone who has already completed the battle and obtained the "Unsung Heroine" title , a new sixth lamp will be present.
  • Teleporting through this lamp brings the party to a final battlefield where you must fight all of them at once: Lion, Prishe, Nashmeira, Lilisette, Mumor, Mnejing, and Ovjang.
  • Note that in this version, they don't have nearly as much HP, they do not use their 'nasty' abilities (e.g., Lilisette does not divide), and they aren't nearly as powerful.
  • One strategy is to have someone kite all of them around the room, while the rest of the group eliminates them in order: BLM pup, WHM pup, Prishe, Lilisette, Lion, Nashmeira and then Mumor.
  • Completing this final battle awards the title "Epic Heroine".
