Notes

  • This Campaign Ops is only available to those with Iron Emblem of Service or higher, and only when San d'Oria controls La Vaule (S)
  • Everyone must have this Campaign Ops active to enter the battlefield.
  • Your Campaign Ops credit and your Tigris Stone key item are consumed upon entering.
  • The entrance to the battlefield is located at the gateway at (F-9). The safest way to reach it is by following the northernmost path using Invisible or Prism Powder.
  • 30 minute time limit
  • Just as with a BCNM, buffs will wear upon entering.
  • Darkheir Grradhod seems to gain and lose benefits depending on which mobs are currently alive with him.

Strategy:

  • To win, only Darkheir Grradhod must be defeated. He has three helper Orcs which are much weaker, but respawn if defeated. He is a Samurai-type, and can use Meikyo Shisui.
    • Buffs are cleared upon entering the battlefield.
    • A good method is to have ONLY a tank approach the arena and pull with magic, then bring all four orcs to the entrance. The healer(s) can focus on the tank (PLD/NIN worked very well), and others can defeat the helpers. Each helper has relatively low HP (about 1,500). The helpers will respawn shortly after defeat, and as of a recent update, will become aggresive to the party again. (they share hate with their leader.)
    • When Darkheir is defeated, the others will despawn, and an Armoury Crate will appear in the arena.
    • Darkheir Grradhod has about 30,000 HP. Highly resistant to debuffs and Sleep.
    • The helper orcs can be easily slept, though they begin to resist after being slept twice.
      • Light Shot seemed to land the entire fight but the duration would start to decrease.
    • Dispel and Elemental DoT Magic such as Drown and Rasp seem to land best on Darkheir.
    • Be cautious of Darkheir Grradhod's Shoulder Charge TP move, which can deal extreme physical damage (700+ to PLD, 1500+ to melee or mage). This move is Frontal Cone AoE. do not face behind the tank without shadows.
    • Tornado Edge seems to be a Cone Attack. Inflicts Max HP Down, Max MP Down and Max TP Down which must be erased.
    • Darkheir Grradhod counters frequently. You may not want your tank to engage.
