    How to Kill AV maybe?

    Nobody knows how to kill Absolute Virtue. They threw countless BLMs,MNKs and RNGs at it but could not break past it's regen effect.The best HNMLs in the game CFH on it and had 50+ people and they all were slaughtered horribly.

    Now let's see.

    Absolute Virtue is a HNM that was "jailed" by the jailers of virtue. Love,Fath,Temperence,Hope,Fortitude,Prudence,Justi ce

    These jailers all drop a weapon and a torque.

    These jailers jailed the ultimate creature....Absolute Virtue.
    Now let's think for a moment here. Square Enix had created in the past HNM...all of which had like Defense+10000000000 Evasion+100000000 but Magic Defense.-1000000000. Melees aren't too great on most HNM, and even the ones that are meleeable, only 300% QWS do well on them or Spirits within.
    All this time melees have been complaining it gives mages and rng an unfair advantage because they are always required for HNM. This gave mages a hubris. They were godly because they were always needed in the main alliance whereas the melees were just skillchain slaves.
    Each virtue drops a weapon these weapons are probably the only items that can damage Absolute Virtue without triggering her regen effect. It makes perfect and total sense!

    The 7 jailers jailed Absolute virtue's virtues into 7 pieces(the 7 weapons) in order to weaken her. But since you kileld the jailers she's free and the weapons are needed to again imprison her. Chrono Cross anyone?

    Besides...the sky gods were weak vs magic and strong vs melee. THe 4 god set armor is worn by all jobs but DRG PLD THF DRK. Now the sea god is the opposite and the CoP god set is worn by the other jobs, so it makes perfect sense the strongest sea god(Absolute Virtue) can only be defeated with melee-and by melee I mean >ONLY< the virtue weapons. The virtues jailkers also drop torques that enhance skill so that you can land your attacks better.

    You do know that is this the exactly same thing people said would be used to kill Jailer of Love... oh wait people ended up powering through it with mass BLM DPS.

    What are melee going to do vs. Aeroga IV and Meteor. The same thing as BLMS, die.

    Catastrophe from Apocalypse was said to do about 100 damage on Jailer of Love. Melees are even more worthless on Jailer of Love then they are on sky gods.

    read the post, obviously jailer weapons wouldnt do anything to jailer of love because he's one of the 7 jailers of AV.

    Well, for sky gods, there is a throwing weapon that will dispel each particular god to make it weaker. Perhaps there is a way to "Dispel" AV that people haven't found. Maybe certain sc done by the weapons drop by the virtues and the type of sc corresponds to the day that av is popped? Just some random ideas, SE probably just intended av to be killed with conventional blm method, just not enough blms.

    I'm sure he's not the first one to come up with it, but I do believe weapons might have use of sorts OTHER than being pos?
