I already posted this over on Reddit, but I’d like to know what you guys think about this too. So, I paid a visit to Snowcloak earlier today for my Zodiac drop and noticed something about Fenrir this time. When you’re fighting him, he keeps his right forepaw lifted throughout the whole fight and only places it onto the ground when executing skills, and when he’s about to leap.
There’s no real advantage to him fighting this way, so it made me wonder… Is Fenrir injured during this fight? I seem to recall Yoshi-P saying something about having plans for Fenrir in the future (which could possibly be a hint of seeing him return much stronger in Snowcloak HM, which I’m hoping). Still, I am left curious though… What exactly happened here?
Surely it’s not just some quirk he has. Fenrir plays a big role in mythology, so whatever hurt him enough to make him not want to put pressure on his right forepaw, unless absolutely necessary, must have been quite the adversary. I’m betting Odin paid him a visit, heh.
It would be great if we could get someone from the community team to answer this if none of the players have a solid explanation as to why he does this. I’d be really interested to know why he was designed this way for this fight. If anything, I’m just glad my mount doesn’t have a limp and/or growls whenever his right forepaw hits the ground, lol.
Yeah, it was before the mount was introduced, so he could have just been talking about that. I hope we either get an improved HM version of Fenrir though or they include him as a primal. Sticking him as a boss in a random dungeon really doesn’t do Fenrir justice, especially with all of the history he has behind him.
Hell, I’d even settle for a team trial like Gilgamesh and Enkidu. I doubt they’d do it, but they could put Fenrir with Loki. I won’t hold my breath, but it would be better than nothing.
