I'm finally 100 and finally I see what venos were talking about. It's near impossible to do it without PK mode. I tried doing it in Safe Mode using a Harpy, but it's impossible to tab the invisible mob.

My question is, how do I know the animations of the Guards correspond to Physical or Fire Attack? Like if I select it, is there like an icon that could help me know if it's in Fire or Physical mode?

Thanks!

    Click on them to see what buff they have to tell. Otherwise, the fire attack has a fireball animation on the stuff being hit (which includes you if you're in range, but unfortunately not the target invisible mob), the physical attack has no distinctive animation.

    The safest way really is just selecting the guard itself to check on the icon that reveals what mode they are on >.<

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    But according to my notes here - yes I made notes, I'm a sexy geek LOL - when they're on fire attack, there's an icon to say fire resistant? Or increased fire resistance or something like that? Yes?

    On physical, there's no icons.... Or I didn't see because I was panicking.

    Yeah fire mode means they have a fire resistance buff on and physical mode means they have a physical defence buff on.

    The thing about the buffs is that sometimes they don't show immediately so I either have to click again or wait a few seconds for it to appear. Not sure what's up with that.

    Either click the guards to check, memorize what your guards are on orrr do what I use as a leftover from good old delta days: have normal chat in your squad chat. Cause guards talk :D

    There is quite a noticable difference in the animation for the physical/fire attacks that's without having to click on them separately.

    Screenie of attack stances

    They will also speak as you switch stances.

    The physical guard has a purple aura around it, very much like the clerics' Violet Dance stance. In fact, it's the exact same one.
    Text: "I'll cut down any and all who face me!"

    The fire guard has a reddish glow under it.
    Text: "Errgh! How infuriating! I'm going to drown this place in fire!"

    From a distance the details aren't noticable but you should still be able to tell the difference by the colour. The actual attack (white buff thingy) looks the same for both.

    Good luck though, even when you don't have to check the stance of the guards it can be near impossible to tab the invisible mob, especially when the wave mobs are closing in and tab just selects them, or if you have to switch and click on the fox in between! I don't even bother trying tocomplete waves anymore as I refuse to go in PK mode. I just stand there killing foxes and the occasional turtle...

    That's a good question, and Chelestine has a great answer!

    I'll add that to my guide on the instance in a few~
