I have uploaded a video of my Maat fight for those who are interested.. I wish i had one for my first attempt, I had no idea what to really expect..
Video vs Maat
It is a hard fight, but there is room for error. I made a lot of simple mistakes, did not finale everything. I notice he sings again after you finale him. So I left him with bad buffs like etudes while I could. I did not use the Opo-opo Necklace method.
Also, one thing I had noticed after the fight when I watched the video, after you sing paeon again you must drink another hp regen food. I was too nervous to realize during the fight, but its okay.
Also. I wouldn't recommend doing Spirits Within -> Spirits Within. I don't know jack about what to skillchain with since.. I never melee. Lastly. I notice he will use ws around the same time that you build up 100 tp (probably coincedence) and when he is about 30% hp left. I was lucky and did not get hit with Asuran Fist this time in the video..
The only advicfe I have to give is to stay calm. My first fight resulted in a pathetic loss because I was overexcited.. (and he use Minuet 4 -> Asuran Fist while finale is on recast ; ;) Also. Running up to where I was in the video asap is a good idea, so you can see what he buffs with.
