Whaaaaaaaaat
I checked Playonline just to see if it was too late to reactivate and turn in Bonanza Marbles (turns out: yes, by a few hours lmao) only to see that they're adding a new avatar. And apparently it's months old news.

Seriously it blows my mind that they're adding a new avatar over 4 years after the game "ended." I remember back when people doubted that we'd ever get anything after Diabolos.

But with the initial shock wearing off, it's kind of a boring choice. Too visually similar to Garuda and I don't even remember what she did in RoV's story. I do vaguely recall some connection to GEO hinted at in the quests and/or website lore. But hey it's new content exclusive to my favorite job in an 18 year old game that I don't even play anymore so I'm not gonna complain.

Guys, Siren is coming, isn't that the big news here

I dunno it doesn't look like she's breathing that hard.

She'll involuntarily giggle when it happens.

Siren might not be exclusive to just SMN. Usually these fights also come with gear and accessories, here's hoping brd gets better tp gear lol.

It's supposedly going to be a quest akin to Diabolos/Fenrir/Alexander/Odin/Cait Sith (& Atomos).

The only hope for useful things is the fact that Siren could only be linked to either Adoulin (iLv) or Rhapsodies (iLv)... but I would only expect 3~4 accessories like the other 5 non-tuning-fork Avatars.

Gear wise, it might be drops targeted towards mage jobs this time since:

  • Light Armor Jobs got Lilith.


  • Heavy Armor got Alex & Odin.


  • Pet Jobs got Cait Sith.

I hope I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure if this was a new battlefield, they'd have made that known for hypetrain reasons.

I'd guess it's a fight someone could beat at 75, and it will have additional rewards of an instrument, a song+1 neck or singing skill accessory, and a charm resist accessory.

I hope they release the HTBF version either at the same time or one month after, so we can try for some real gear.

Just imagine them making the Siren fight so difficult no summoner will get the avatar.

I'm betting it will be a 117 or w/e the Adoulin fights were tiered to.
Also, given that the epilogue quests for Adoulin are tied to RoE, this could be another Directive. (And that fight for Ygnas was harder than 117 iirc. It's been a while.)

Then again Mikaboshi was harder than 117 too. So I would expect a 99+ fight with level 99 accessories.

Would be nice if her accessories were Geomancy stuff.
But I could see her giving BRD stuff too, since that's both her current NM's jobs.

Gate of Tartarus -> Hysteric Assault produces Distortion.

It's decent damage and yet also a full HP restore, giving Siren remarkable longevity compared to other avatars. Roundhouse is also the first new non-1hour AOE attack ever on SMN.

Shockingly enough, they're i119 rewards. Especially so since it's a pretty easy fight. You get a Scythe, an elemental siphon macro peice, and... i forgot what the other item was. Also you can choose 10000 bayld (rather than gil).

I was expecting this joke tbh :D
Still doesn't change the fact that I was hyped for AoE and it's single target (tried several times. It's not even conal) (;_;)

I don't know lol. I swear when i used it, i saw damage to multiple targets. Maybe some other AoE from a trust coincidentally hit at the same time in the log.

Also i'm braindead and forgot about level ? holy, but I guess you can't blame me for that one since it only works if you're really lucky.

Now if they would just stop taking our job abilities and 1hrs away from all the new htb fights what a lazy way to deal with astral conduit and apogee

The non-lazy way is a heavy nerf, though.
or other mechanics, such as triggering a certain ability when being hit by the same attack multiple times or some such. THere's lots of ways they can deal with this that are less unfun than bsaically saying "you can't use this job in this fight."

I could think of lots of other ways. As one example, a mob who is immune to damage of all elements and types but one or two, and within 5 seconds of recieving such damage, the vulnerable element/type changes. This would force a summoner to keep switching summons or which blood pact is used, weakening astral conduit (you'd only be able to squeeze in 2-3 hits) but not disallowing any particular job from the fight.

That kind of mob would cripple almost every DD in the game.

Hey DRG! I heard you poked it with a stick? Aight, it's now immune to stick poking, enjoy!

Just name that mob Tanaka, and have that vulnerability change move called Balance and drop it in domain invasion while you're at it.
