An Interview With the Developers (Part 2)

AkhMorning Translation: Famitsu: How Eden’s Verse Was Made! (Part 1)
The Raiden (Bird) In The Development Phase Was Even More Violent!?
The charge attack that the boss uses immediately after Fury’s Fourteen (in JP: Fourteen Chargebolt) requires the tanks to use the Duty Action “Stand Firm”. Failure to do so by anyone within the 8-man party would be knocked off into a wipe, which contributes to the intense mood of the battle.
Raiden was said to be the strongest on the first floor. This creature tethers to the player with the most Surge Protection stacks and will attack the player regularly.
Furthermore, Raiden is a nasty enemy that will gradually go closer to the player and once the distance between the tethered player and Raiden become too close it’ll instantly knock the player out.
Garuda & Ifrit. The Combined Skills That Shined Bright Throughout The Second Floor
Once the players manage to go past the phase of fighting both Garuda and Ifrit at the same time, Garuda and Ifrit will combine and thus become Raktapaksa, with even fiercer attacks coming at the players.
One misstep in judgement will result in getting involved in the explosion. While it’s required to rotate the camera around to determine the position of Ifrit and the location of the orbs, it’s actually quite hard to get used to it at first!
The Project Started With An Uncertain Boss Design
Currently the strategy floating around is to look at the portal colours which make dodging attacks coming from Word of Motion a lot easier. By just placing 2 markers on the arena players can just dodge by moving around from marker to marker.
What lies in the final phase is the Words of Fervor. The area of effect attack pops up facing outside the arena, and the movement itself can be quite peculiar.
Creating The Mechanic For Shiva’s 3 Stances
With the floor pattern it makes solving the problem of baiting the attacks much easier to resolve, and if we didn’t have them to begin with…That would be terrifying!
During the mob phase, players are required to defeat the elements that pop up one after another. Once all the enemies are defeated, players will be given the “Grace of Light” buff, which increases their DPS momentarily.
