You who would become warriors of the Steppe... with death you shall dance!

Bardam

Bardam's Mettle is a dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, part of the Main Scenario during the Nadaam arc.

Story[edit | edit source]

Bardam's Mettle.

If you are to participate in the Naadam, and fight alongside the Mol, you must first be recognized as a warrior of the Steppe. To earn this honor, you will be required to complete a rite of passage involving walking in the footsteps of the legendary hero Bardam and taming a yol. Each must do this by themselves, of course, and so you shall...though if by pure coincidence some of your fellow adventurers happened to have made the long journey to the Far East, and simply insisted on accompanying you...surely no one would be any the wiser?

Progression[edit | edit source]

The party enters their own Bardam's Mettle separated from Hien, Gosetsu, and Lyse.

The Dusk Trial[edit | edit source]

The Dawn Trial[edit | edit source]

The party encounters various Steppe beasts, the Dusk and Dawn Visage, before encountering the first boss, Galura.

Bardam's Hunt[edit | edit source]

Galura's icon may be special, but still has enmity based targeting. The boss will occasionally cast Crumbling Crust, which spawns wildly random AoEs around it upon finishing the cast. Rush will target a player with a distance-based tether. The targeted player should go far away from the boss to reduce damage, and overlapping with a nearby animal will soften the charge significantly. After Rush is finished, it will use War Cry and wake up the sleeping animals, before stomping the ground with Earthquake, stunning the players with moderate damage. The animals will do certain AoE attacks; the sheep will have a small AoE, the deers will have a line AoE, and the Coeurl (only appearing on 2nd rush and beyond) will have a huge cone AoE. The boss will repeat these mechanics until it is defeated.

The Rise of Bardam the Brash[edit | edit source]

The path through then opens, and the party goes through a canyon valley. Bardam magically turns rocks into golems with a slam of his giant hammer while closing the path forward. The party must defeat them to progress.

The Rebirth of Bardam the Brave[edit | edit source]

The second boss, Bardam, is special. Everyone in the party cannot act, and given a game. The party must follow mechanics thrown at them in order to progress without having to fight. Bardam's "battle" has 3 phases, and at least one player must pass the trial or it's a wipe. Failing a mechanic will give the player a strike, and two strikes, they are out for one phase.

Once through, Bardam will declare the player worthy, and allows them to claim their prize.

The Glory of Bardam the Bold[edit | edit source]

The party then slides through a waterfall to a chamber beneath called the Voiceless Muse, which seems to be a tightly guarded area. While engaging the mobs, beware of giant boulders rolling down the middle.

The Voiceless Muse[edit | edit source]

After defeating the guardians, the inner chamber opens to reveal the objective and to-be mount, Yol, as the final boss. The boss will occasionally drop feathers around two targeted players, while also shooting feathers from the sides. Yol also has a party wide attack and a strong attack. Once Yol is at half HP, it will fly away and an add will spawn. Defeat the adds while avoiding feathers and Yol rushing through a party member. There will be two of these adds. Once they're down Yol reappears and the fight continues.

Upon reaching 10% HP, Yol will fly away and executes its ultimate attack. During this time, the Left and Right Wings are targettable and should be broken, while the outer sides of the arena rain down feathers in a circular motion. Yol can knock someone back with a green target. Upon shattering both of its wings, it will be stunned for a few seconds before continuing the fight normally, and finally defeating the boss, claiming it.
