Welcome back to our guide to the Final Coil of Bahamut Turn 2. Today we will continue our guide on how to take on Kaliya, the boss of this raid. We will cover the third phase of the fight player will need to go through.
The Nerve Cloud Mechanic!
At the start of the third phase of the fight, Final Fantasy XIV Gil hunters will need to be on their toes. As the phase begins, the three constructs near the boss will detonate dealing moderate AoE damage. This needs to be avoided as Kaliya will quickly follow up with Nerve Cloud. This attack deals raidwide damage and can easily wipe the group. Even at full health, the attack will drop your allies’ health to single digit percentages. As such, be sure to pull out all the stops and use all skills your party has to mitigate damage. And as mentioned, avoid getting hit by the exploding constructs at the start of the phase.
A new mechanic used in the third phase is Nanospore Jets. This will tether pairs of characters together. Often the skill will pair up two tanks, two healers, two dps, or a dps and a healer. The tether works by placing vulnerability debuffs on a tethered pair if they are too far from each other. If they go even further away, the two will instantly die. Note that if a character dies for any reason, the ally they are tethered to will also automatically die. Lastly, if a tethered pair comes into contact with another tethered pair, then all of them will get stacks of Vulnerability Up. Note that Nerve Gas and the seed mechanics will still be in effect during this phase.
Turn 2 Coil of Bahamut Loot!
Completing the Final Coil of Bahamut Turn 2 will reward players with 30 Allagan Tomestones of Poetics. Successful players will also get Carboncoat and Encrypted Tomestone. Kaliya also has a chance to drop gear of item level 130. These can be identified by the Dreadwyrm prefix on the equipment names.
