Final Fantasy XV‘s next Timed Quest is now available, and… Snakes… Why did if have to be snakes!? This one will have you up against three Lv. 54 Midgardsormr and two Lv. 78 Hvitrormr just east of the Rock of Ravatogh.
Like the previous timed quests, there is a deadline — you’ll need to down these baddies to claim the reward by March 26th, 2017.
You can check out our go in the video below:
This encounter isn’t quite as tough as the marlboros nor the dread behemoth, but it can still catch off guard if you’re not careful. Luckily, both the Midgardsormr and Hvitrormr are vulnerable to the same things: swords, daggers, and ice. Brew up some potent Blizzard spells (I go with Freeze that has a Break Damage Limit modifier) and bring along your best daggers and swords that are not imbued with fire or light affinities — both types of serpents take reduced damage from these elements.
With so many of these guys, it’s rather easy to get tripped up in their coils, so you’ll want to dodge in and out of the fray when things get a little bit crowded. You’ll also want to watch them for an attack where they spray venom into the air to have it fall around them. If you’ve fought these guys elsewhere in the game, there isn’t too much here that’s new that’ll throw you off other than their sheer numbers.
Build your Armiger gauge quickly with dagger attacks and hurl some powerful Blizzard-type spells and you’ll have it down in no time.
