This 72 hours things, bothered me. Seems really really ridiculous. And it is.
Seems the actual time is more along the lines of 15 hours to beat Adamantoise, and 15 hours is still up there. If its just a battle of attrition
whittling HP points away, don't much see the point in it, it would be boring, and like hitting a rhino with a foam bat....Are we there yet? Are we
there yet? Nope, just 2,155,102 hits to go.
But they got to keep it interesting somehow, maybe there are stages to this boss fight, seems from the demos and vids like the battle with Titan it
takes a bunch of stages of fighting him, and different ways you can attack and that you got to do in the over all battle, hopefully its not just run
around and try not to get hit for 15 hours straight while you wittle away HP ever so slowly.
From this site Link
Superbosses have been in Final Fantasy for a long time such as the Emerald and Ruby Weapons in Final Fantasy VII, Ozma in Final Fantasy IX, and the
Dark Aeons in Final Fantasy X to name a few. The difference about this super boss is it will take you 15 actual hours to defeat him.
Why is this? Well in an interview the director Hajime Tabata revealed the Day and Night cycles: for every 30 minutes, a full in-game day passes. This
giant Adamantoise? It was revealed he will take 30 in-game days to defeat which equates to 15 real time hours. It must be a battle of attrition.
Dont know were the 72 hours came from? They must have read the quote from the game director somewhere online that the boss would take 30 days to
beat, and did that math. 30x24=720. Then they were like....? Cant be heard the game is at most 300 hours long. So remove a zero, 72! Oh ya sounds
Who would be even crazy to try that. Who in this world even has that kind of time on there hands? Its redonculous.
Or who knows, but seeing the game has day and night cycle equal to 30 in real world minutes, 15 hours seems more realistic, and even that way to much
of a grind. I suppose we will see.
