Guide written by Miette Leuvoix

Using this stategy you can beat King Elmer III with the standard deck given to every player when they start Triple Triad. Note that this strategy only works when you go first and even then won't work every time. In a large number of cases however, Elmer will place cards in such an order that when you place the bomb in the middle at the last turn, the Plus rule will win the game for you. The success rate of this strategy is slightly above 50% and though you will still lose frequently, you will still gain more GP than you are losing, making it a valuable farming strategy for both earning his two cards (Bahamut and Godbert Manderville) but also a steady stream of MGP.

Note: Even if something happens to break the strategy, such as him placing a card that would break the order (which will always happen when he goes first), you can still win with these cards with knowledge of the Plus rule, so keep your eyes open.

Update: My rng must be really bad. 3.5 hours later: many wins, some losses and draws... 9 Godbert cards later.... And STILL NO BAHAMUT CARD... RIP my luck... On the bright side, I'm really good at PLUS and can turn most games around with this deck...

Heart Triad 11th October, 2021 @ 05:53 am

Now this strategy works HOWEVER, success rate was not 50% when I went first.(Perhaps RNG was not on my side.) When you challenge the King, 75-60% of the time he'll go first and if the player DOES go first 50% of the time he'll mess up the strategy. Out of 25 rounds only about 3 went perfectly according to the above strat. I won 2 other games in addition because I got lucky on the King's card placements and got the PLUS rule. I had more success on winning via my recommended standard deck (Lunar Ifrit, Lunar Bahamut, Ysayle, Ravana and Noctis.) By no means it's a great deck but the win rate was much higher. If you don't have great cards or just starting out on Triple Triad, just follow this guide.

23 Wins to get Bahamut today, though I've made numerous attempts before. The Miette Guide on the King Elmer III page is solid but not foolproof. If you lead and Gobert is played above Dodo, there's a good chance to win but not guaranteed. If Elmer leads, aggressively manipulate the Plus rule by baiting situations where you get get 2 Elmer cards adjacent to one open spot, then play Plus. Remember that Bahamut will be his final card, so you'll need a substantial lead by that point.

JayNyne 3rd February, 2020 @ 07:38 pm

There is a very long post on Reddit with a strategy that works most of the time but doesn't account for certain variations of moves that King Elmer will use. The most reliable deck I used to beat this guy and finally get my Bahamut was a fairly typical corner build consisting of Lyna, Lucia, Roundrox, The Griffin and Squall. Start each match if possible by putting Squall in the top left. Guard your weaker sides and take his cards pretty aggressively. Avoid placing Roundrox above Urianger if there is a space between them. Avoid placing The griffin and Lucia apart with a space between them, unless you are sure Hildi/Godbert have already been played/won't be played. Sometimes he'll create a space that Bahamut can flip with the plus rule. Identify and plug it. Most importantly bring patience this one took longer than any card I've gone after so far. Good luck.

BY FAR the most consistent win strat: https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/4kdkoy/great_way_to_farm_king_elmer_to_get_your_bahamut/ I've tried 4 different decks and NOTHING is consistent as the above. Win ratio is near 100% and on the rare occasion a loss might happen, you can turn it into a draw. Just be aware that his numbering is based off the numpad. Also, if you ever hit a point where the path strays from what he puts, try to look at the bigger picture and you can probably still turn it into a win (end result is almost always putting Moogle at 1). Would highly recommend copy+pasting that list into google sheets/excel so you can view it on a separate monitor. Be warned that it still took me about 8-10 hours of farming to get Behemoth but I probably would have gotten it sooner if I employed this setup right away (only learned of this deck during my last 2 hours of farming).

There is no way Godbert is at 8% if Bahamut is 6% lmao. I've gotten 6 Godbert drops so far with no bahamuts. About 2 hours in so far. Win ratio around 50%.

So something strange happened to me. I had a high-power deck that was able to brute force about an 80-90% W/L ratio from Elmer, but at 200+ wins I hadn't seen more than two Godberts. Swapping to the starter and using the plus strategy In twenty wins I got five Godberts and the Bahamut. I don't know if there's a connection there but I do find it suspect that I got what I was looking for so fast after I started using his own mechanic against him. Not sure if it's related, but it feels like it.

45 wins, for 1 Godbert, 1 Bahamut

8 Wins: 3 Godbert, 1 Bahamut...long time ago it was like 200 wins for 1 bahamut

Anonymous Player 23rd August, 2019 @ 10:20 am

4 Godbert and 0 Bahamut in 36 wins.

Used this strategy, works roughly 30% of the time, took me 186 matches to get Bahamut

Anessa 20th July, 2019 @ 09:43 am

I didn't try any particular strategy, because too much randomness seems to be involved in this battle, suffice to say, it took me over 100 victories (not just matches) to get Bahamut. Probably the worst slog in terms of TT in the game, since you constantly need to worry about Plus messing everything up.

Only works if you put the cards first.

Anonymous Player 10th July, 2019 @ 11:07 pm

Remember it's all chance. I lost a lot using that strategy but I won him in 15 minutes with that deck compared to the two hours winning with another. Not sure if it helped drop rate or I was lucky but I got him.

Anonymous Player 8th July, 2019 @ 07:52 am

To those that have been saying this strat doesnt work anymore, check again, I have beat him 15 times in a row today with this strat. If you know how to Triple Triad even if he takes one of the spaces you could still be able to guarantee a win if you get most of your cards in the proper places.

Tacos Al'pastor 19th June, 2019 @ 03:15 pm

Having earned the Bahamut card on multiple other characters I have to see it feels like they've altered the drop rate. I'm somewhere over a hundred wins now, about 15 Godberts. Win rate about 80% Nothing

I beat this cheating bastard so many times and got like 10 Godbert Manderville and no bahamut fuck this rng.

played for 1h now and this deck gives me 30 to 50 procent win rate. 1 and 2 is fine on your turn, afterwards it depends on the cards he played. The AI will almost always play the same depending on the deck he has, so after awile u will learn the win patterns.

Anonymous Player 9th September, 2018 @ 12:37 am

Both Plus strats don't work reliably for me. It's much better to leave this guy until you get a good deck then just win, mostly ignoring Plus. I use Squall and 4 cards with 2 8s - Lucia, Hilda, Qitian, Griffin. Try to take what you can defensively while setting the 8s up for a Plus using your own cards (and his Hildibrand) in case you need to bounce back.

Santoryu 15th August, 2018 @ 12:41 am

no bahamut in gold pack, took me 10 try today to finally won the card, i did play around 70 match total~

Win the first match and got Bahamut!

The above was a very good strat until Square put more randomization into Elmer's play style making it harder to win with just the basic cards.

Anonymous Player 6th March, 2016 @ 07:14 am

Who ever said the above strat is a 50% win rate is a liar. Out of the 50 games I've played I've won 3-4 times.

22 wins so far and I've only got 1 Godbert

When I had a small collection, I got the Godbert card in acceptable number of win times. I forgot the number of times. A week later I came back with 29 cards in my collection. I took about 10 wins to get bahamut. Surprisingly no Godbert at all.

Shyne Mask 20th August, 2015 @ 06:48 am

it took me 167 win to get it ..

Shyne Mask 18th August, 2015 @ 05:29 am

i have won 67 times the same day still didnt had any fucking bhaamu

Karandrass Nevermore 16th June, 2015 @ 03:01 pm

Essentially he has 3, maybe 4 or 5 variations. Once you start to play him repetitively you'll begin to work out your own strategy for dealing with those times when he doesn't 'play by the rules. Altogether he's not so bad once you get to know him.

Karandrass Nevermore 16th June, 2015 @ 03:00 pm

Hope it's ok to post this here, the above guide is really clear, simple and clean ^^ it's awesome! However as King Elmer has a couple of variations this link can also help: http://imgur.com/r/ffxiv/XA3WQVz
