The Ultimate fights are the hardest fights in Final Fantasy XIV. With complicated mechanics, they also require to focus for a long period of time as the runs for these duties are usually way longer than their Savage version. Ultimates fights are a combination of multiple bosses encountered during the expansion's raids.
The Epic of Alexander is the third and last Ultimate currently available and features three bosses from the Alexander raids and of course, the ultimate boss:
- Living Liquid
- Cruise Chaser
- Brute Justice
- Alexander Prime
How to unlock TEA — The Epic of Alexander in FFXIV
To unlock this fight players will first need to complete the fourth boss of the Eden raids from Shadowbringers in Savage mode. The fight is called Eden's Gate: Sepulture (Savage) and is unlocked after completing the normal version and talking to Lewrey in Amh Araeng.
After killing Titan Savage, players will need to talk to the Wandering Minstrel in Kugane (X: 11.5 Y: 12.5).
This fight can then be accessed through the Duty finder as a party of eight, all players obviously need to have it unlocked.
A succesful party will receive Colossus Totems that can then be exchanged for the corresponding weapon skin.
The Lore introduces this fight as follow: "The clockwork fortress that manifested itself in the far reaches of snow-swept Dravania did bear an uncanny resemblance to the great steel giant sung of in the legends of the Hotgo, an Auri tribe hailing from far across the sea. Inspired by this tragic tale of a mechanical god who placed his trust in a single mortal soul, the minstrel spreads the proverbial wings of imagination and takes flight, weaving an impassioned ballad of hope and despair profound."
The ultimate family will soon grow bigger as Endwalker will introduce a new Ultimate Raid: Thordan.
