FFXIV Pandaemonium First Circle: Erichthonios Normal Guide

Erichthonios is the first raid of the Pandaemonium and here is our complete guide for the mechanics and how to beat it.

The first four raids of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker called Circles are now available. These raids will be available in Normal and Savage difficulty and loot tokens, gear, and even minions and Orchestrion Rolls. This guide will focus on the normal version of this raid.

If you haven't unlocked them yet, here is our guide on how to get access to the Pandaemonium raids:

The Pandaemonium raids are the endgame raids from Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. The twelve bosses are divided into three chapters starting with Asphodelos and here's our guide on how to unlock all Pandaemonium raids.

FFXIV — Erichthonios Guide

The normal difficulty of this fight isn't hard once you know each mechanic as they aren't linked one with another as much as in Savage mode and here's the list of what the boss can do:

  • The boss will first throw his weapon on one side then the other → Got to the side where the weapon isn't before the end of the cast.
  • He will then use a raid-wide AOE → Mitigate and heal accordingly
  • Erichthonios will target a heal, create an AOE and then push the healer while giving him a damage share mark → As a healer get close to the boss to not be pushed in the killing border of the arena and then share the damage with the group.
  • Right and left again
  • Tank buster → Mitigate accordingly
  • The next mechanic is easier than it can seem: You will get either a red of blue mark above your character three times head to the quarter of the arena where the icon at the bottom of the pile is the opposite of the color you have.
  • After a while, the boss will cut the arena in two colors. He will then attack the zone of the same color that is around him while casting → Head to the opposite color.
  • The boss will then cast the same mechanics again and again while adding some you've already seen on top of the others before dying.

If you need a video example of the kill here is (in french) the video of my first blind kill on the boss:
