Defeating Muddy Murder
Muddy Murder, AKA the Flan Prince, is another interesting creature in the world of Final Fantasy 16. It’s a really agile and unpredictable foe that is bound to offer quite a challenge to the players. It is a Rank A and level 38 boss and thus you need to be really careful while approaching him. Stock up on all of your healing potions and defensive potions before you approach it.
Muddy Murder also utilizes many elemental spells while being quick on its feet against the player. Its attacks hit hard and cover a large area. It always mixes up its attacks in hopes of keeping the element of surprise going.
Muddy Murder Attacks
Firaga, Blizzaga, and Thunderga are the elemental attacks that the Flan Prince can use to damage Clive. They are pretty self-explanatory with their names. Its arsenal also includes Quake and Tornado. It will jump towards Clive after using any of these spells, so be ready for these moments throughout the fight and dodge out of the way.
Hands Down Attack
Even though it can bash into Clive with its gelatinous bulk and deal significant damage, the most damaging attack is still when it joins its palm for Hands Down. Clive will lose a significant amount of health in the sequence of a one-handed smash, two fast smashes, and a final jumping smash after a brief pause. If the entire combo connects, one strike could be the final blow for players, so be very careful of your distance.
The Flan Prince utilizes Dualcast to combine its elemental strikes when it is in lower health. It can be hard to dodge this massive attack therefore players must be cautious to avoid the impacted areas before continuing their attacks
Look for an opening through its projectile attacks. When it launches one of its slower projectile attacks, you have a fair chance to attack and use your abilities against it. Since its other sets of moves have various timings when you try to dodge them, take your time and patiently wait for an opportunity.
A very useful ability to reduce damage is Titanic Block. Use Titanic Block in place of Flan Prince’s assaults if you’re having trouble dodging them. Use it frequently and freely as there is no cooldown on it to deal with this challenging gooey monstrosity.
Staggers will naturally occur if you merely concentrate on inflicting damage; however, you shouldn’t try to hurry this enemy into forcing a stagger state. In short, use a hit-and-run tactic to avoid the enemy’s strongest attacks while gradually decreasing its health.
Muddy Murder is a strong enemy so it is also advised to level up enough before you decide to challenge it.
