Graven Image Mechanics:

Wave Cannon

Invisible line AoEs are cast from the Statue of the Gods. Deals low magical damage, and can be baited.

Pulse Wave

The Statue of the Gods tethers four random players. When the tether resolves, they are knocked back.

Inexorable Will

Four AoE circles appear under random players.

Indomitable Will

Four DPS are inflicted with a stack marker each. This must be shared with one tank or healer each, as it inflicts a magic vuln debuff for a short duration.

Shockwave

The Statue of the Gods knockbacks from the glowing hand side of the arena.

Gravitas and Vitrophyre

The top left Statue of the Gods will tether to DPS or tanks/healers. The bottom right Statue of the Gods will tether to the other set of players. The left statue will cast Gravitas, which damages tethered players with an AoE and leaves behind a puddle, which must be stacked by two players. The right statue will cast Vitrophyre, damaging tethered players with an AoE.

Intemperate Will/Gravitational Wave

The left or the right Statue of the Gods will glow, casting an AoE across the glowing side of the room after a short while.

Indolent Will and Ave Maria

The Statue of the Gods will glow with an eye. If the eye does not have a question mark, look away. If the eye has a question mark, look towards it.

Indulgent Will and Idyllic Will

The top left Statue of the Gods will tether to DPS or tanks/healers. The bottom right Statue of the Gods will tether to the other set of players. The left statue will cast Indulgent Will, placing a confuse and heavy onto tethered players as well as giving them a damage buff that will instantly kill. The right statue will cast Idyllic Will, sleeping tethered players.

Kefka Mechanics:

Mana Charge and Mana Release

Mana Charge will charge up one of the following skills, which can be real or fake, as indicated by [F/R]. Mana Release will cast the same skill afterwards, with the same state.

Hyper Drive

A heavy tank buster.

Ultima Upsurge

Raid wide heavy AoE magic damage.

Timely Teleport

Kefka teleports to the side of the arena and casts Revolting Ruin immediately after.

Revolting Ruin

A wide conal AoE casted across the arena. The area behind Kefka is safe.

Aero Assault

A knockback casted from Kefka.

Light of Judgment

Raid wide extremely heavy AoE magic damage.

God Kefka:

Forsaken

Raid wide heavy AoE magic damage. Changes the appearance of the outside of the arena, indicating the coming mechanics. Each Forsaken set ends with a Light of Judgment that returns the arena back to normal.

Heartless Angel

Drops the HP of all players to 1.

Ultima

Raid wide heavy AoE magic damage.

Hyperdrive

A heavy tank buster. Now leaves a DoT on the affected tank.

Celestriad

Similar to Delta Attack in Neo Exdeath, Kefka casts Flagrant Fire stack, Thrumming Thunder, and Blizzard Blitz inside, then Blizzard Blitz outside and Flagrant Fire Tethers on DPS.

Heartless Archangel

Drops the HP of all players to 1. If players are not at full health when the cast bar resolves, they will gain an debuff that prevents any incoming healing for twelve seconds. If they are at full health, the debuff will only last four seconds. Kefka spawns four skulls which tether to one DPS each.

The Path of Light

Meteors appear on the arena, which must be soaked by two players each. Certain meteors must be soaked by four players. The number of lights orbiting the circle AoE indicates how many players must stand in the meteor.

Wings of Destruction

Kefka’s wings will glow. The type of mechanic will depend on how many wings are glowing.

Light of Judgment

Raid wide extremely heavy AoE magic damage. Same as normal Kefka.

Trine

Triangles spawn on the floor sequentially around the room, with either seven small triangles or one large triangle and a few small triangles spawning. After a while, the triangles will explode, and circle AoEs appear on the tips of the triangles. The size of the AoE is consistent with the size of the triangle.

Ultimate Embrace

A heavy physical tank buster that must be shared between both tanks. Alternatively, a single tank can use an invuln on it.

Futures Numbered

Kefka will slam on a random party member, dealing heavy physical damage that must be shared, then do a room wide AoE in front of him.

Pasts Forgotten

Kefka will slam on a random party member, dealing heavy physical damage that must be shared, then do a room wide AoE behind him.

Starstrafe

Kefka marks two random DPS with Prey, and summons multiple sets of The Path of Light. The Prey targets will have four AoEs dropped on them, which leave behind an earth puddle, similar to Liquid Hell from Twintania.

Meteor

AoEs targeting the two non-DPS prey, five times sequentially.

Future’s End or Past’s End

Kefka will spawn three clones that dash in front of tanks and healers, dealing AoE damage, then casts All Things Ending.

All Things Ending

If Future’s End was cast, Kefka and his clones will do a wide conal AoE towards their targeted player. If Past’s End was cast, Kefka and his clones will do a wide conal AoE directly behind them. At the same time, a meteor proximity marker will spawn on a random DPS, as well as a meteor stack marker.
