Final Fantasy XI Boss Fight Lasts 18 Hours

We've all encountered lengthy RPG boss fights that lasted for more than an hour or two, but an 18 hours long MMORPG boss fight might be a little too much.

The fight took place in Final Fantasy XI, where "Beyond The Limitation" guild fought a new boss, Pandemonium Warden, who changed into 20 different forms through 18 fighting hours before the band finally gave up.

"People were passing out and getting physically ill. We decided to end it before we risked turning into a horrible new story about how videogames ruin people's lives", said one of the guild members called Sylphet. "None of us doubt that Pandemonium Warden can be killed. We just call into question exactly what the development team thinks is reasonable from human beings."

Keep in mind that those 18 hours weren't enough to finish the fight. Beyond The Limitation guild members believe that at least another 3 to 5 hours are needed to kill Pandemonium Warden.

Imagine taking every hour

Imagine taking every hour wasted on the MMO's we've all played, and putting it into terms of Months and Months, of fatigueless, hungerless, sleepless time.
Imagine taking that 1-6 month(s) solid of time to master an instrument, art, literature...
Now rethink, that time is every day, of 24 hours of focus, non-sleep, time... You'd be a god of whatever you choose to do.

BUT it is spent on leveling, and gear getting, and emblem farming.

im amazed no one has stated what obviusly is the problem here......these guys suck at the game.most likely they think they are a "l337" guild and they are not. they went into the boss fight under-geared, underleveled, not enough charachter skills/abilities, and not enough player skills either.they were probably trying to take on the boss way before they should, i bet if you took on the boss with the right group, it would take no longer than a normal boss. they just saw themselves making a dent, and the foolish leader did not want to give up, in order to save face.

It doesn't take 18 hours to beat this thing. The guild was the first people to fight it, thus they were doing it wrong! There is a specific way to defeat the boss and they just didn't have the research into the boss. It has been beaten in future attempts in far less time.
