Trolls Repeat, info from last time starts here

https://www.ffxiah.com/forum/topic/48624/ambuscade-findings/19/

The worst part about Trolls is getting the KI, assault would be the far superior option, so you should REALLY get on them damn assaults, if you STILL don't have them at least partially completed.

For the most part... all the conduit strats got killed by the triple HP change, so, maybe not.

Looks like BLM was the go-to. Rua has a video and all that.

Out of town for a few days so it might take a while to post an updated video. But yeah, I went with a manaburn setup last time. It might not work again this time though as HP has been tripled.

So gonna go ahead on a limb here and say there's a literal zero chance of pickup blming this. Less than a million HP but good luck.

Things a lot easier to nuke when it only had 200k hp instead of 600k, there is no possible way to get 6~8 deaths/comets off before aura goes up.

Probably fine on normal, but any setup works on normal, so.

Did D with JP pickup, aeolian edge/circle blades to break aura, regular ws when aura down, rinse repeat. When boss died clean up the adds. It was pretty straight forward/easy.

VD on the other hand it was doing some hate resets, maybe because we weren't getting aura down quick enough, accuracy buffs might have been a bit weak. The hate reset ended up with a dead me when it focused on me. Went downhill fast from there with the aura being up almost full time.

Seems like it will be a pretty easy month though with a good group.

Question does the boss have two different auras that provide the
-DT or is it one combined aura from the adds.

Considering that Velkk are absolute pure disgust, yes. Still nothing hard about any month, annoying ones you can just spam normal with damn near any setup.

It only takes 7 normals, you don't have to tryhard it, 5 hours across an entire 4 weeks.

7 normals to cap total hallmarks? With or without seals? Not so interested about my main, but my alts couldn't get any love this past month since they're pretty trashy and limited jobs.

Sealed, 3600x7=25,200 (and 6/7 is how many you get per month) don't even have to use that last one if you don't care about the SPdial key.

Does magic damage like fira/banishga work in place of magical ws?

if thats the case, then BLU will be golden this month because Subduction will remove aura too.

By that logic, Just spam whirl of rage, and subduction, and you win.

Seems like bullsh$%#^ to me.
Just tried it, spemmed Subduction like mad, it was healing the boss and did nothing to his aura.
Maybe my Subduction is broken.

How are people dealing with Head Seize? I'm super tanking on PLD and the window to survive that is just too small if used early..

D is extremely easy with PLD WAR BLU BRD GEO WHM. BRD can do the aeolean edge if PLD doesn't have a dagger (lolwut). It is like doing last month in E.

No, I am just WSin with CdC and tried to check the Subduction theory, that's it.

Need 1 person doing magic AoE ws and 1 person doing physical AoE ws to break some aura. That is what I read and that is what I am doing...

Does it have to be powerful AoE or just be an AoE WS, Shockwave for example?

Aura gives DT- and access to the most dangerous moves (Supersonic, Pleiades Ray and Head Seize)
Supersonic gives Magic Shield+Regen (undispellable and lasts 1~2 min)
Head Seize (VD only) reduces hp to 1 and reset hate.

The most important part to know :
A timer will start from the moment Bozzetto Bruiser or one of his adds has been damaged and the aura will appear after exactly 15 seconds. The Dahak in VD does not count, you can kill it first, the timer won't start as long nobody attacked the boss/adds, you can debuff them but not Dia/Poison. 15 seconds is plenty of time, enough to severely injure/kill the boss if you are prepared.

Head Size goes through Stoneskin without breaking it. RUN has very good chances to survive with SS, capped DT-, Phalanx, Barfira, Cocoon, Regen etc.
Dahak can be silenced to lock Nullsong.
AC burn still works.
