Sigmascape V4.0 is the fourth and final battle of the raid Omega: Sigmascape in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood.

StoryEdit

NormalEdit

The looming face of the Sigmascape, "Kefka" will be your final opponent in this test world. Analysis of his data reveals that, despite his comical appearance, this cackling jester once rose to godhood and cast his entire planet into ruin. His is a power not to be underestimated. Nero has also alerted you to the villain's propensity for trickery, and promised to watch for deadly feints through his enhanced monitor. You can only hope that his warnings come in time...

SavageEdit

The urge to flip switches is almost irresistible...even when you know full well the consequences for doing so. Once more your finger moves as if of its own accord, and activates the second phase of the Savage Initiative. As the gentle arrangement drifts from the terminal, you are transported to a remembered vista of the Sigmascape, each lapping wave of the song swelling the boundary of your memories...

ProgressionEdit

NormalEdit

Kefka's main gimmick in this fight is his trickery, any of his magic attacks can be fakes, to be able to tell, Kefka will have question marks on the AoE indicators and the orbs floating around him.

  • Hyperdrive- hard hitting magical tank buster.
  • Blizzard Blitz- Large or small circular AoE
  • Fragrant Fire- players will get orange markers, spread away from each other.
  • Ultima Upsurge- Raid wide AoE attack
  • Thrumming Thunder- line AoE's
  • Timely Teleport- Kefka will teleport to the outside of the arena, will immediately cast an attack afterwards so be behind him, unless he begins casting Aero Assault.
  • Aero Assault- An ability that will knockback players, be in front to not get knocked off.

Halfway through the fight Kefka will cast Graven Image and a statue will form just outside the arena attacking players with different abilities.

  • Shockwave- The statue will move his hand to one side of the arena and form an orb that will knock players back, this will also trick players depending if the orb moves to the other side of the arena or not.
  • Orb- A giant orb will appear on the left side or right side of the arena, go to the opposite side to avoid.
  • Ave Maria- A look away or look at mechanic.

SavageEdit

Pre-TransformationEdit

The Savage version is similar to the normal fight, Kefka will still trick players depending on if the attacks have question marks or not, but players will need to remember them as he will cast them in-between attacks.

  • Mana charge- copies the next ability he uses for later
  • Mana release- uses the ability he copied earlier

Post-TransformationEdit

Kefka will start the battle off with Heartless Angel which will reduce the party's HP to one, he will then begin casting Ultima killing anyone not healed up properly. Once Ultima is cast he will use Hyperdrive on the main tank, also giving a Bleed DoT. Next is Celestriad there will be a cross and outer circle AoE, have everyone stand outside in the pink circle until the inner circle goes off, the DPS will be marked with individual Fire III's so have them spread out, and the tanks and healers stack together to split the damage. After another Ultima have the tank pull the boss to the center of the arena for the next mechanics, Forsaken is next causing high raid wide damage.

Next up is Heartless Archangel, leaving everyone with HP once more but this time, if anyone isn't healed up to full they will be incurable for the upcoming mechanics. Briefely after are three meteor markers and Mad skulls, to do this properly you need two people to soak the meteors, the healers stand in the middle and the 4 dps stand in the other 2. In the meantime the skulls will be tethered to the DPS they need to stand in the meteor diagonal of where there skull is, then after bait the skulls away from the middle and run into the skull. After the skulls are taken care of Wings of Destruction will begin casting, targeting the closest and farthest player. To deal with this have the main tank stand in the bosses hitbox, the other players need to be max melee range, and the off tank needs to run out to the edge of the arena. He will then cast Light of Judgement, just like the pre-transformation version this deals high raid damage.

The start of the second phase begins with small Trine, triangles will begin falling on the arena in unusual patterns these explode in circles on the vertices of the triangle, during this Wings of Destruction will begin casting but only on one side indicated by one glowing wing. for trine run to the last set of landing triangles, and once the first set go off run to the first set to be safe from the others. Another double Wings of Destruction, Ultima and a new mechanic Futures Numbered or Pasts Forgotten, stack up for this.

  • Futures Numbered- will jump and attack the party, soon after run behind him as he will cleave directly in front of him.
  • Pasts Forgotten-Will jump and attack the party, stand still as he will cleave anything behind him.

Next up is Ultimate Embrace this can be shared by the tanks or Invulned, followed by a Hyperdrive. After another Ultima bring Kefka to the center of the map for 2nd Forsaken. Next up is Starstrafe, a series of mechanics everyone will have to do.

  • Melee DPS- Stand in Kefka's hitbox to not get Ranged DPS's pray, dodge AoE's going clockwise or counter clockwise to avoid, then move North to soak the meteor
  • Ranged DPS- Stand on the edge of the arena one player directly East and another West, will get prey and drop puddles, move northwards slowly and then soak the North meteor with the melee DPS.
  • Heals and Tanks- Soak the meteors, one east and one west, then Kefka will cast Futures Numbered or Pasts Forgotten, move to the southern part of the map, and drop the upcoming clones in different spots near the edge of the map, depending on what was cast move behind Kefka or stay until All Things Ending begins casting, Then soak meteors and move in to the real Kefka and stack.

Following a repeat of mechanics is Big Trine, have the boss on the east side but not directly center to be safe for the following patterns:

  • Version 1- The big Triangle in the middle will have three triangles outside it, stand dead center to avoid
  • Version 2- The big triangle will have two triangles outside it, go to the side with no triangle and stack.

The following mechanic is 3rd Forsaken which is similar to the 3rd Graven image in the first part of this fight the boss needs to be dead center for this. Anyone with a tether will be knocked back, move north to be knocked back into the meteors, the main tank will get hit with Ultimate Embrace after. Next is similar to third graven, if you're tethered to the left side of the statue go out, and if you're tethered to the right stay inside to soak the meteors and the confused players. The next mechanics are similar to the first forsaken with the mad skulls, but after it all the statue will be summoned and will cleave half the arena, Kefka needs to be facing East so a safe spot isn't ruined with his Wing of Destruction.

The following 4th Forsaken is identical to 3rd Forsaken.

Journal

  • Nero seems unusually anxious to move things along.
  • Together, Nero and Cid present a profile of your final opponent in the Sigmascape─a magic-using jester by the name of “Kefka.” According to their research, the mage is wont to confound his opponents with subtle feints. Accordingly, Nero has adjusted his monitor to give him an unusually clear view of the battle, and will attempt to warn you of impending deceptions. Speak with Alpha to put Nero's strategy to the test. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Sigmascape with you. Keep your eyes open and your mind sharp, for it is time to do battle with the illusive Kefka! ※Sigmascape V4.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have defeated Kefka, a victory which should signal the end of your struggles within the Sigmascape. It is time to leave and return to the Fringes.
  • After descending to congratulate you on your triumph, Omega proceeds to deliver its theory on the secret of your inexplicable combat potential. You are, it contends, subconsciously restricting your own performance save when placed in mortal danger. As such, unlocking your “true” capabilities should logically be a matter of threatening you with death...
    Before you know what is happening, you find yourself trapped in a prism of energy, with scant moments to live. But just when all seems lost, Midgardsormr uses the last of his strength to assume his original form, and intervenes to rescue you from an untimely end. The Father of Dragons then fades into slumber, satisfied that his guidance is no longer required...
    
    You are still reeling from your ordeal when Cid arrives, yelling about Nero. But at the sight of you, he bites his tongue, and bids you make a swift exit to the lip of the Yawn.
  • You return to the outside world to learn that Nero has been transported to Rhalgr's Reach having collapsed. Make your own way back to the settlement, and call on the waiting Jessie.
  • As you are speaking with Jessie, a weary Cid approaches bearing the news that Nero will be incapacitated for some time. Even as exhaustion and injury begin to take their toll on your companions, it is plain that Omega's trials will only become more dangerous. You have little choice therefore but to take Cid's exhortations to heart, and temper body and mind to withstand whatever monstrous opponents Omega has in store for you next.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Sigmascape V4.0.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Sigmascape V4.0.
  • Speak with the Ironworks Hand.
  • Speak with Jessie in Rhalgr's Reach.
