Zone in and murder it. Belladona is weak to about everything except ranged attacks (with aura up).

Literally any DD x4, geo, healer.

We also ran pup/smn/bst x 5 + 1 x cor

You can solo VD on BST with trusts. >6min with 2hr, used one mulsum. I am sure you could do it w/o 2hr but will take many more resources and time. Do a fight go afk and come back in 30 min get KI and repete. :)

No charm, done the fight 50+ times and never charms.

She will do

  • ae normal attack ? or just attacks without turning, not sure

  • deracenator (AoE)- Inflicts damage. Additional effect: Amnesia, Blind, and Muddle.

  • night stalker (Conal front)- Inflicts damage. Additional Effect: Resets TP.

  • atropine spore (Conal front)- Inflicts damage. Additional effect: sleep, paralyze, and silence.

  • infernal liberation - single target dmg, if you ws between the time this starts and the time the animation finishes, it triggers full bloom

  • full bloom - did about 2k heal on normal, 6-8k on VD

  • Umbral pull - 20 yalm radius, uses randomly initially, then every 2 minutes, causes draw in, and bind. For 1 min 30 seconds will have a slow aura *unsure how to remove earlier. 30 seconds after aura fades she will umbral pull again (on the 2min mark).



Those are all based on the wiki, i can confirm there is no amnesia, or paralyze on this mobs version.

That said just burn her down, if you have blue war or dark doing 20k ws with 20k skill chains, 6-8k heals every 10 seconds cant keep up with the dmg. Even with just 5 pets it cant keep up.

If that's the case can you not just alternate light/dark to keep the damaging going and no heals?

Not sure i follow.

Any WS during the animation of infernal liberation triggers full bloom, nothing to do with light/dark

I'd like to acknowledge and thank Orij for providing the written strategy, the basis for this recording. This was on D setting. We tried VD twice but our tank (me) died to Head Seize twice before we decided to just go back to spamming D.

Sadly I don't think it would.

Issue isn't survival ability, it's the contribution RUN makes to damage output. You really need to kill the MB in one volley.

Has anyone figured out how to drop the aura on Belladonna? That slow aura is destroying my killspeed.

Dev showed a video in their last freshly picked vanadiel, so you can try figuring something.

Dannyl noticed dev protect dropping at some point, i think the aura dropped after a skillchain (fusion?) or magic burst.

Try a Distortion skillchain (non-CA self sc) and burst with a blizzard and see if that works. It was the only time I saw the aura drop on my logs as I CDC'ed off of Qultada's Savage Blade. After mule blizzard burst the 3 effects faded as Bella did Nightstalker tp move. I'm not sure if it has to be a certain damage amount

I stopped Ambuscading due to other campaigns getting my attention ^^

edit: I also think a Fire based sc might work since plants are weak to that... not to mention thats what we saw on the video. Liquification didn't work for me. I also tried Fusion but it was a self-sc, not sure if that plays into it ;;

Tried D intense with a PUG melee style for the most part ive played with a lot of them but its not my normal group. I know VD stages up quite a bit,Anyway to try and bypass Head snatch that drops the pld to 1 HP? Has anyone tried to kite it like last month?

Search function isn't working, so I can't verify if this hasn't been noticed before, but "Legion:" gear works in Ambuscade. Tested using (heh) the Ambuscade Ring. Gave 8 Acc when equipped inside Ambuscade.

Uses I can think of for this: Maquette Ring (Refresh +2), Puissant Pearl & Corybant Pearl for tanking, Cytherea Pearl for healing.

VD Intense can be done melee: Idris GEO, Strong DD, Burt PLD, Yagrush WHM, THF, RDM/DNC. PLD tank, RDM and THF spam CB and AE. RDM opens with stymie silence on Zahak, PLD invincibles when you fight the boss when the WAR MS it down so doesn't drop tank to 1 hp. Geo does full time precision, entrust haste geo frailty

That'd work but you're relying on a lot of variables and almost certainly looking at a scenario where your party is comprised entirely of LS members. You can do Intense D with a pickup group provided everyone knows the strategy.

Then you have to take into account your strategy relies entirely on 1-hours whereas D is a shorter fight and does not involve the use of, and subsequent resetting, of 1-hours.

Yup. Can reset 1 hours with Cuji in 2 min. I cover WAR WHM GEO, friends do the rest.

Sure but this all requires 1 hours. So you'd have to reset them after each run, which honestly would make it take a while longer to do runs of VD than to do runs of D. I'd rather spam Difficult than have to reset 1 hours each time.

SO Easy!

Normal = Course NM, Suckga AOE stun Drains MP and stuff
should be able to VD it with 3 DD geo whm
Did pop a Ghost add near 10% mark


Intense = Not as easy
Main NM Takes 0 damage until adds are killed with Melee damage as Magic seems to do little

Soulflayer Main NM Blue mage does Delve UBLM spells. imps typical Amnesia and Silence crud but over all should be np if meds and out of range for some moves

Soulflayer seemed pretty weak. Seemed to be affected by GEO bubbles this time, Vex+Attune helped a lot with Amnesia, Frailty+Dia adequate (at least on N) to allow me to kill the imps quickly, then the Soulflayer himself was easily disposed of afterward and seemed to either have very small defense or a DT+% trait.

At some point, Master does a full dispel. Not sure which move triggers it. All I saw was an imp used Enervation, and I lost everything.

Moves used by Imps: Potent Lunge, Diamondhide, Enervation, Aeroja, Overthrow.
