Difficulty Adjustment of Abyssos Eighth Circle Savages (P8S).
Patch 6.21 has made completing the Abyssos Savage raid Tier slightly easier. There is some relief for those on the verge of clearing Abyssos Savage raid tier: The Eighth Circle Savage (P8S). Both phases of P8S saw a 1% decrease in HP.
If you are fighting against time and trying to reach the required DPS output, just 1% of HP could make all the difference in clearing the anger or not. Clears will be easier for parties who don’t have high-level “meta” teams. Also, we are still in the early stages of Abyssos Savage, so players are using lower-level gear to run these raids.
The FFXIV team claims that the test members who were involved in the launch of the fight performed better than normal. This is partly because they had more time to test it. It also impacted the HP they gave to P8S bosses at launch. They now claim that it was too high. It turns out that the developers are not good enough at their games.
P8S is still a difficult fight and one of the most difficult in the Pandaemonium Raid series. Don’t assume you can simply walk into the fight and get it done without understanding the mechanics. The DPS requirement isn’t quite as severe now.
Echo for Asphodelos Savage (P1S – P4S)
People who have not completed the Savage raid tier of Asphodelos Savage yet will still be able to get assistance. Parties who enter any of the four Asphodelos Savage instances will now be granted the Echo. This grant a 10% boost to the maximum HP, damage output, or healing potency. This buff does not increase after a party wipe as in other cases.
