The Ultimate fights are the hardest fights in Final Fantasy XIV be it the first one or not. 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 Unending Coil of Bahamut is the first of the currently available ultimate fights, is done while playing a level 70 synced job and features two bosses from the Bahamut raids and of course, the ultimate boss:
- Nael Deus Darnus
- Bahamut Prime
How to unlock Ucob — The Unending Coil of Bahamut in FFXIV
To unlock this fight players will first need to complete the fourth boss of the Omega raids from Stormblood in Savage mode. The fight is called Deltascape V4.0 (Savage) and is unlocked after completing the normal version and talking to the Magitek Terminal in Rhalgr's Reach.
After killing Exdeath 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 Dreadwyrm Totems that can then be exchanged for the corresponding weapon skin.
The Lore introduces this fight as follow: "There once were brave souls who uncovered the truth of the Seventh Umbral Calamity. Such trials as they overcame were not to be recorded in history, but far from fading with the passage of time, they have been imagined in vivid detail by the wandering minstrel. As his lilting melody caresses your mind's eye, you cannot help but be transported to the scene of struggle against the elder primal Bahamut...."
The ultimate family will soon grow bigger as Endwalker will introduce a new Ultimate Raid: Thordan.
