FFXIV Titan Fight Guide

A guide to taking down Titan in Final Fantasy XIV.

by

After having a really difficult time with Titan in Final Fantasy XIV I decided to write a guide for it. Unlike Ifrit, Titan has multiple additional things you have to watch for. You also need to have map awareness for this fight, if you don't you will wipe the party. Titan can be broken down into a three-phase battle, I will separate each phase below. Also, please note that this is the normal mode guide, if you are looking for Hard Mode please check my Hard Mode Guide.

Phase One

Phase One is pretty simple, there are really only two moves to watch for. The first move is the most important. If you mess it up you are knocked out of the fight. Titan will jump into the air using a move called Geocrush, slamming himself down in the middle of the arena. When Titan jumps a large red circle appears, this circle is one that you want to remain inside of. If you exit the Geocrush circle you will be knocked off the map, causing instant death and the inability to rejoin the fight until everyone wipes. You will want to stand in the dark brown ring inside of the circle.

The second move you want to be wary of is a straight shot move that shoots across the entire map. This attack does massive damage so don't stand in it. There is also a knock back if you stand near Titan during the attack so be wary of your surroundings when you see the red lines pop up. Phase one ends when Titan drops to 50% health, immediately going into phase two.

Phase Two

Phase two will continue the attacks from phase one but will add some new mechanics. The first mechanic is you have to destroy the rocks that are dropped on party members. Party members become useless when trapped in these rocks so dispatch them as soon as possible. The other is a change in target. You need to destroy Titan's Heart instead of Titan. Titan becomes untargetable while Titan's Heart is up, but the Heart is part of Titan. Destroy the Heart to advance into the third and final phase.

Phase Three

Phase three incorporates the moves from phase one and phase two, however you no longer need to worry about the Heart. So continue fighting as you did in phase two and kill Titan. When Titan dies you'll get a miniscule amount of experience, but all in all the fight is pretty fun. Patience is a key part of this fight so don't just try to push it to fast, just work Titan down at a steady pace and you'll be fine.

As always, thanks for reading, if you need clarification on any point, or have a request for another guide please let me know in the comments below. Also, share this out, the more people that know the fight the less painful it will be.For more guides please check my all encompassing list of guides.

    For the first jump, you can also stand in front of the rocks, you won't get damaged or blown off. BUT, the rocks will disappear so you can't use it again.

    Cheers for the guide. It took us 4 or 5 wipes and it was a pick-up group, so it could have been a lot worse. We found sometimes there was a bit of lag, so we had to account for that when AoEs his and of course you really need to look out for his AoE attacks, they can make-or-break the fight. However, this fight is really fun - at least it was for me as a Scholar, I don't know about DPS or Tanking it.

    The main body is untargetable. The Heart spawns on the main body though.
