It is always a good mindset to know your enemy’s attacking moves beforehand so you are mentally ready for what is about to unleash. The Breaker of Worlds shares a wide range of moves that he can use randomly at any point during the battle. Here are some of the common moves you should be aware of.

  • Powerful Punches can deal significant damage during close range.
  • The Damaging Roar Attack will curse Clive when he is in the area and cause high damage.
  • Atlas can dominate if you fail to avoid his gigantic sword when he swings it. This is one of those monstrous attacks that change the tide of the battle.
  • Breaker of Worlds also has energy attacks that can be disturbing for your health bar if you are caught in them.

These attacks are used frequently, and players should expect them without any warning. With that said, it is compulsory to share the counters that will help you survive during the battle, eventually leading to Atlas’ failure.

Strategies To Use During Combat

FF16 lets players revolve around countless attacks so they can invest in them and invent their counters if needed. Some of them can be very efficient against Breaker of Worlds, and it is worth mentioning them. Moreover, players must have high-level upgraded gear and equipment before they take on the Breaker of Worlds.

  • Titanic Block: This is the main ability for the battle. It is used when dodging the attacks becomes much more challenging. Rather than hitting your attacks, blocking Atlas’ attacks is more crucial to the battle, so they are given priority. Therefore, use Titanic Block to neglect enemy attacks and prepare a counter to deal high damage.
  • Eikonic Strikes: Eikonic Strikes are proven efficient during slow attacks from the Breaker of Worlds. These slow attacks give you a window in which you can launch your Strike which can be bad for Atlas.
  • Perfectly Timed Dodges: As the opponent’s health bar drains more than half, he will start swinging his sword which should be dodged for survival. It is impossible to get out of sight of these monstrous attacks. Therefore, players should dodge them and stop running from them.
  • Prioritize Defense: As Atlas will rapidly start throwing his attacks, it is better to start the battle with a defensive mindset so you have enough time to learn about all the attack moves and prepare counters accordingly. Furthermore, try to focus on dodging attacks as well.

If you find success during the battle, you will get:

  • XP Points (15,000)
  • Gil (20,000)
  • Ability Points (120)
  • Renown (50)
  • Fallen Iron (1)
  • Orichalcum (1)
