probably mentioned already, but wanted to say its pretty easy to deal with the invincible/perfect dodge if all mobs are slept.

Pull away Aegis and start damage. When he pops Invincible, pull the Mandau and start working on him. It's a cakewalk even on VD to hold 2 mobs. Once the Mandau pops Perfect Dodge, Invincible should have worn and you can go back to working on him. Once Aegis dead, finish off Mandau. Basically a simple way to deal continuous DPS rather than losing time.

Excalibur doesn't haven't to be an immediate loss. My RUN is geared "ok", but played worse hehe. Was tanking VD last night and with good DDs Battuta will last the duration of time it takes to put down Excalibur. Yes, its not 100% like shadows but only died 1 out of 4 times we saw it once using Battuta to deal with the Added effect of 14k+ per hit.

If you're capable of stunning those moves, certainly it will be faster. Just giving options.

Don't forget you have Blink on RUN also as well as Seigan/Third Eye if /SAM if you choose to not just ensure survival with /NIN.

Sepulchur didn't work on Gungnir when I went PLD for this. So now I'm unsure if holy circle even helps.

Battuta really is enough to get you through Excalibur. Killed him a few more times today this way and it’s no big deal.

Obviously. it also has an already low proc rate when it does hit. So it's relatively safe, but you could still instantly die.

They're pretty spammy with WS, especially SAM, think it did like 12 straight Kaitens. That normal or were we just feeding too much TP? (COR+RUN with capped haste)

If it got off 12 Kaitens your doing too little damage. Even if it one hours and starts to SC you it shouldn’t be that many. But to answer the question 2 DD should be fine.

Maybe they are demons like the Ahriman?

Vol 1 D can be beaten with 3-5 pups and 1 roll cor. The strategy is similar to how Gigas ambuscade was handled. A tank pup pulls all. The DD pups solo a target each.

Reset fight if you see Excalibur. But pup handles Spharai pretty well. Pup can kill Excalibur but he just slows down fight too much making the chance the adds start running around a lot more likely.
