From Finalfantasy14players: Decapitation, while not always eye-pleasing, is quite an important method of killing monsters in Final Fantasy 14. Except that Square calls it incapacitation perhaps for a more politically correct effect. They could also be calling it incapacitation because not every monster loses its head. Sometimes a horn comes off, sometimes another appendage. Killing monsters in this method drops elite loot that would not otherwise drop. Though doing so is much harder in practice than in theory as I will show you in my part 2 segment of my tour with FFXIV GMs. Let us travel to my favorite dungeon in the game, Tam-Tara Deepcroft, so that I can show you in more gory detail.
