Fight guide:

The Horntail fight occurs in three stages, though the third stage consists of many parts of its own. The first two stages are the preliminary heads, pretty easy honestly though stage two is irritating for warriors. The third part is the real thing, far far harder than the prelims. As this is a major boss the guide will be split into various segments, starting with pre-stage one.
The main body is comprised of several parts, which need to be defeated in a certain order. The first part is the legs, which have rather high touch damage (around 14,000) and two kinds of stomp. The first kind is a super knock back attack, the second type is a stun attack. They both deal the same damage. around 7700 unbuffed and 9800 buffed.

Second part is the tail, which has an absolutely insane touch damage (over 30,000 when buffed) it also has a poison gas attack, which honestly you can just ignore.

Third part is the wings, which summon cornians occasionally, but the main worry about this part is the attack buff it gives every other part. Once the wings die, its fairly smooth for the rest of the fight.

Fourth and Fifth parts are the left/right heads, completely identical to the preliminary heads, minus the super knockback.

Sixth part is the middle head, almost identical to the left and right ones except with more HP. It also casts full map dispel at 50% HP.

Seventh and Eighth parts are the left and right arms. These will cast status effects throughout the whole fight, but their more annoying trait is the mana burn skill. Which deals 1 damage, but burns around 2000 MP. They also cast mass seduce at 50% HP, which seduces the first 10 people to sign up.

Anatomy:





Horntail has a total of 10 parts, 2 preliminary heads
3 main heads, 2 arms, 1 wing set, one leg set and a tail section.
