This page will provide advice and optimisation tips for Eden’s Promise: Eternity (Savage) - Eden’s Promise.

Not only will it cover rotation optimisation choices, but will also highlight optimisation around party wide utility and mitigation.

With additional information, checking and theorycrafting from Liaa Lia, Hydar Tsukuba, Mugi Scarlet and Nemekh Kinryuu.

Before You Begin

Disclaimer

Note that the example GCD sequences shown assume the 2.48s GCD tier.

Differing GCD tiers will likely create some conflicts with the micro and macro level alignments that you attempt to perform if you strictly follow these examples.

5.4 Build Recommendation

SMN i530 2.48s Raid Ring

Food: Smoked Chicken 

Opener

The suggested opener will be a 2nd GCD DWT - 7th GCD Bahamut opening sequence.

Opener #1: 2nd GCD DWT - 7th GCD Bahamut

2nd GCD DWT - 7th GCD Bahamut Opener
2nd GCD DWT - 7th GCD Bahamut Opener

The first opener option will be a 2nd GCD DWT - 7th GCD Bahamut opening sequence.

With the adjusted ED timing in the 1st GCD + a delayed potion to the 4th GCD, this opener will allow for a 4 Fester alignment in the opener potion window, while still maintaining all other oGCD alignment priorities.

This opening sequence will also prioritise a Tri-Disaster clip, playing into a 60-55 timeline for the initial rotation cycle.

For this opener timing to be preferred, your expected kill time must fall within the specific range of:

  • 6:55 - 7:25
  • 7:50 - 8:18

Opener #2: 1st GCD DWT - 6th GCD Bahamut

1st GCD DWT - 6th GCD Bahamut Opener
1st GCD DWT - 6th GCD Bahamut Opener

The second opener option will be a standard 1st GCD DWT - 6th GCD Bahamut opening sequence, to play into strict 110s rotation cycles.

For this opener timing to be preferred, your expected kill time must fall within the specific ranges of:

  • 6:40 - 6:53
  • 7:25 - 7:49
  • 8:19 - 8:27

[Junction Shiva] Diamond Dust > Plunging Ice > Pillar Pierce

During the sequence of Junction Shiva mechanics following Diamond Dust, the timing of your opening trance timings can lead to slightly altered GCD sequences during this section of the fight.

In order to handle these mechanics and slide movement with ease and without the risk of any Ruin II usage, you can follow the example GCD sequences shown below:

Example #1 - Hybrid Trance Timing

Junction Shiva Hybrid Trance Timing
Junction Shiva Hybrid Trance Timing

Example #2 - 110s Trance Timing

Junction Shiva 110s Trance Timing
Junction Shiva 110s Trance Timing

Remaining Rotation

Due to the full encounter providing 100% uptime with minimal movement requirements, the remaining rotation for you to execute will generally mimic a housing dummy situation. Therefore, while specific GCD sequences are not really required to be shown, priorities can still be listed to follow as a guideline for how you should approach full uptime encounters:

Maintain Proper Trance Timings Given Your Expected Kill Time

Be mindful not to drift your Trance timings outside of the initial rotation cycle.

De-couple 2nd + 3rd Bahamut Timings

These Bahamut phases should be de-coupled from DWT to ensure proper raid buff alignment with 60s + 120s raid buffs (Chain Strategem, Divination, Technical Step, or Trick Attack).

Make The Most Out Of Your Instant-cast GCDs

Be aware of the timings for mechanics which will require you to move periodically, such as the Earthen Fury > Titan debuffs phase, Sculptures + Beams phase, or Lions.

Each of these mechanic sections can be easily handled with proper Egi-Assault, Ruin IV, and Swiftcast usage.

Align Your Devotion With Other Party Buffs

Depending on your expected kill time, as well as other party buffs available to you/your party, you will have choices on your 2nd and 3rd Devotion alignment.

For accelerated kill times in speedrun, or highly optimised environments, your 2nd Devotion will generally be a normal ~3:10 timing, while your 3rd Devotion may be delayed for a 6:30 burst timing.

In prolonged kill time situations however, Devotion may be held for the 4:10 timing to align with 60s + 120s raid buffs, while the 3rd usage of those buffs can then be held for a final burst timing anywhere after 7 minutes.

Be aware that the 3:10 Devotion timing would occur during the Titan debuff phase, where party members will be spread apart. This timing will require a place command to center Ifrit on the arena, in order to guarantee Devotion lands on all party members.

Align Your 2nd Potion With Your Final Burst Phase

You will only see a total of 2 potion timings during this encounter.

Your 2nd potion should then be prioritised around your final burst timing, coupled with a Trance timing + Demi usage, as well as full oGCD alignment (4 Festers + Egi-Enkindle).
