Title gained: Nashmeira's Loyalist.
There is a fight at Runic gate again, and this Burning Circle has a capped time of forty-five minuets. If you lose, you have to go back to Whitegate and talk to Naja again to be reflagged and receive another Mythril Mirror.
Nashmiera's plea is the fight's title. You will be warped into a small hallway where you will be able to buff, etc.
When you enter in to engage, you will first fight a BLU named Raubahn. He isn't that much a problem himself, other than his Eyes on Me attack virtually one-shots our tank. While you are fighting the BLU, Razfahd will be attacking as well, doing Diaga III and Banish IV for decent damage. You can pull the BLU out of range of Razfahd (he won't move atop of Alexander) back into the hallway, to prevent him from damaging you.
Once you kill Raubahn once, he will Reraise up and you will have to fight him again. Once you kill him that time, he will reraise again for a third time, but be either melee or magic resistant.
Once he is finally dead for the third time, there is just Razfahd left. Heal up, and then engage him when ready. He's not too difficult, we just kept Light Carol up and melee'd it down.
At 50%, the battle ends and there is another cutscene.
Once the cutscene is over, you will be facing the true Alexander at 100%.
He has a terror move, and does a high DMG AoE move called Void of Repentance. This move is stunnable, however. He continues to do Diaga III and Banish IV. After 50%, he will do Gospel of the Lost which will recover about 1k of his HP.
At 50%, he does Divine Judgement (his two hour), which one-shotted our tank.
At about 10%, he will start to get somewhat spammy with his TP moves and will cure himself alot if you don't stun.
If you wipe at any point in this fight, you can reraise anywhere on the field. Alexander does not aggro, but will react to hostile moves made against him. Futhermore, he won't regen so it will be safe to let him go white.
The key strategy we used for this was to have the mages off on one side, the melee on either side, and the tank tanking away from the mob. This means that the AoEs will only hit the tank. Our BLM/RDM was able to do all the stunning with little problem. The BRD kept up Light Carol for the full fight, and that helped to really minimize the damage that his Light-based moves did. He is very light-resistant.
