Watch FFXV’s souped-up Ring of the Lucii take down Adamantoise By Tony Garsow on March 27, 2017 at 2:35 PM

With the arrival of Patch 1.07, the Ring of the Lucii saw a considerable buff to its previously middling effectiveness. So much so I had to go and try it against the Adamantoise, the biggest bad in the game. It’s safe to say I was a little surprised how well it worked. (Note: pulling off Death and Alterna spells does have a low probability rate on this guy, just a heads up.)

You can see the buffs in action in the video below. We also played through “For King and Comrade”, Chapter 13’s Verse 2 that sheds more light into some story happenings. The first DLC scenario Episode Gladiolus will also drop tomorrow; you can catch the new trailer here.

    Why SE?! I feel bad for everyone who spent a few hours on the fight. They really weren’t kidding that the ring will be “like super powerful”

  • Lord Shiru

    Yes, it’s a little bit over powered, but the fact that Death now deals constant damage is top notch πŸ˜‰ !.

  • Randy Marsh

    Best “cheap” strat to beat this the Adamantoise now I guess. Buy 60 Elixirs, go to the boss, warp and stand on the rock on the right of his head, keep spamming Death from the ring and using Elixirs, and he’ll die in like 20-25 mins. Just tried it.

  • Tony Garsow

    I’d say you don’t actually need the Elixirs. I equipped every gear that boosts MP (Trident of the Oracle, Mage Mashers, etc), and just warp whenever I run out of it. I use Death until it enters Vulnerable state, then Alterna seems to have a better chance of hitting.

  • RapGameBruceWayne

    That was so sick! The void looks so cool!

  • Randy Marsh

    Yeah I forgot to mention the Warp full MP thingy, which I refound out barely at the last portion when I reached the point I accidentally killed with Death, haha. In the end I maybe used like 40/60 Elixirs I bought, but Death is always low on working as you stated.

    I have yet to tried Alterna on…which I have forgot how to use, I took a break from this game for real life things, so I may try that later on for fun and see how well it works. This was the first of killing it, so my gear is also trash, since I have story gear weapon, apart from Trident of the Oracle.

    just waiting for god mode at this point lol ” next update, game shark codes added!”

  • Lucas NΓ³brega Maia

    it has low chance to do a one-hit kill , but nonetheless it diminishes greatly in how to beat Adamantoise if you do not know or do not have the skill to use Zwei and strike in 6 min or less

  • eijin_kiver

    So, I can kill Ardyn using alterna/death? πŸ˜€

  • Randy Marsh

    No it will not from what I can tell. It will only just sap 100ish HP out of him. Boss type enemies like Ifrit, Ardyn, and certain mobs will only just have their HP sapped out of them, albeit in lower amounts.

  • Miqote

    This is a joke.

  • Noctis

    Lol…..so It`s like Tabata wanted to be from the beginning one button instant kills

  • xMysticx

    people make fun of ffvs13 fans for disrespecting tabata …. look on how he intended on not giving enough content with patches …. idk …. :/ tabata is pretty much retarded but everyone defend him wont admit that tabata is a fucking retard

  • Noctis

    maybe an april fools joke set a little early, like the legacy trailer that popped up again

  • Noctis

    How Tabata loves death.

    Instant kill to everything you fight from now on and…

    new update! just to see someone die before your eye! good job tabata!ο»Ώ Give us more updates about how verstael died or maybe an flashback how Regis died in a game cutscene…..or I don`t know how someone else died in this game….whatever^^

  • 2me

    No, his “joke” is this. “We barely ported PC version to shitty consoles and the game people had is actually incomplete but we released like this because we like your money and you guys are all fool.”

  • Haha. I have to admit, that was pretty damn cool. πŸ™‚

    This is a sure way to level up super duper fast! YAY!

    Anybody who cannot stand the game can just go this route to finish quickly.

    “a little bit over powered”

    A little? XD
