Blaugust – Day 9
Ravana Extreme is one of the toughest encounters in Final Fantasy XIV at the moment. It requires coordination and quick reaction to its attacks – like most Extreme mode Primal fights. It’s also a very scripted fight, which means that everything that he does happens in a certain, predetermined order; Titan was also the same and considering how much of a roadblock he was during the early days of A Realm Reborn, it’s fitting there’s a new similar fight in town.
What is also cool about Ravana is that he’s the first original Primal (Summon/Aeon/Esper – choose your term) in Final Fantasy in quite some time; all those that have appeared previously are old mainstays of the franchise, famous names like Titan or Shiva. He looks like an insect (possibly based on the Gnath race, who summoned him) but fights like a seasoned swordman. A fierce display of blades and blood!
I wonder what will come next. Which old-school Primal could be making a comeback? Or which newcomer will surprise Eorzeans with its prowess?
