    Why does Foxy Lady go on cooldown if you fail to do the FATE in 4.3 onwards?

    Seriously. The past two spawnings on Cactuar have been at nearly 6:00AM EST twice now. Even with shouting in Kugane and Rhaglr's Reach, I was only able to get it down to 38%.

    Why does it have to go on cooldown if the FATE fails? Sometimes no one is even around when it does. This means that if anyone is interested in doing this FATE, they just can't because it can and will spawn during the quieter times and it is impossible to kill her with a small group of uncoordinated poorly geared players (read the vast majority).

    If you're not going to fix the spawn time (72 hours, what a joke to begin with), then at least make it so it doesn't go on cooldown if no one is even there. Seriously, has anyone on the dev team even tried to do this FATE after the first few months it was released? It's not a "grind", there's no "skill", it's a completely time-gated event meant to waste your time. You could theoretically try spawning her for days, weeks and never see her because she appears when you're sleeping. Guess what? Try again in 3 days. Oh what's that? You didn't even know she spawned so you wasted more time trying?

    I would pay 3 years worth of sub money to actually watch a stream of the dev team playing on completely anonymous characters and trying to do this FATE in 2018.

    Like what, am I supposed to do this in 5.0 when I can solo this? 6.0? How does such poor foresight and planning actually get through and pushed to production? Prey Online is the same way.

    I killed her with another player who wasn't even in a party with me. Just the two of us plus our chocobos. I have a feeling we were both Scholars but they may have been a White Mage. It should be possible to do as a duo unless something has changed.

If you do not get her by the time I am back home, send me a tell around 8ish, I will likely be in Eureka but will immediately run out if you happen to be in any of the Hunt LS's I am in and call her out. I will tank her, got to lv 70, and 340ilv atm, will be easy for me even with bird heals.

    Shame though if you say she spawned at 6am, guess we gotta wait.

    There is only one possible conclusion to this. The last time Foxy Lady was ever spawned, one person tried to solo it and failed, so when she spawned again she had less HP.

    Otherwise you are simply mistaken. I'm sorry but this is not possible. Even if you were 100th percentile, doing 4k DPS per SCH (not even possible single target but I'll give it to you). My group alone had more than 5x that (which is still embarassingly bad). I'm sorry but this is not possible in a duo within 30 minutes, the numbers don't add up. I sincerely believe you are just mistaken and are thinking of Outfoxed.

    She won't appear for 3 days and probably at 6-7:00AM EST. I can try or we can somehow magically duo it, because apparently that is possible. No, the true solution is, we need to spawn her, one of us solos her until the FATE expires, then in 3 MORE DAYS we spawn her again and should be able to duo her.

    This is truly well thought out and balanced content by SquareEnix. It wasn't like Diadem, Eureka or Prey Online was like this, nope.
