"Life... dreams... hope... Where do they come from, and where do they go? Such things as those... are mine to destroy!"
-- Kefka

Raiders would be familiar with the feeling of hopelessness when progression grinds to a halt--and sadly we weren't immune to it this tier as well. After trampling a train and poking a painting on the first reset, Guardian proved to be a... more competent guardian of Kefka than expected.

After a bit of soul-searching, our lives were filled again with glorious purpose.

Progress went into hyperdrive after Guardian. Our initially indolent will morphed into an inexorable and indomitable one; Kefaust fell a reset after Guardian's first demise.

With our pasts forgotten, each passing week saw God Kefka's future getting numbered. This was helped out by every member faithfully following the trine of reading Eliza's doc, preparing consumables, and repairing their gear before the raid (except for a cheeky RDM with 12k HP). God Kefka ultimately succumbed to our judgement this Wednesday--it came as a surprise, as our initial aim was to see the enrage before putting in final DPS optimisations to kill the boss for good. This might be the first final-tier boss that we felled before seeing enrage!

(Following the tradition of having useless weapons dropping for us, the AST weapon was our first weapon drop. Thank YoshiP for the guaranteed coffer.)

As with all things ending, this tier is also the last tier that I will be part of Bowie, as I will be relocating to a completely different hemisphere for a new job. I have buried a longer thank-you to Bowie in the forums; shan't repeat it here, but I am very grateful to be part of Bowie for the last 4.5 years. Here's wishing Bowie continued success, and tenacity to bounce back from crises!

I really cannot overstate how much I like! this fight but all our efforts have paid off in the end. The damn gob-gob-yourself thing is dead. Despite some setbacks I'd say we're still pretty good on the patch timetable :3 Although this particular fight definitely caught some of us off-guard with it's mechanics splitting into two different ways of execution, it wasn't enough to bring us down. 

Thanks to everyone in Team Bowie for your concentrated efforts to slay this metal thingie by the way. I feel like we've overcome yet another milestone in the road of raid hardships. There might just be more waiting for us down the road, but we won't be caught off guard this time. This tier is definitely more difficult than Deltascape. With that said, it's time to AFK now see ya o/
