So I been doing titan recently as blm for my relic weapon and I usually make it to the heart then we wipe. My question is in the beginning of the fight when they are saying they want to build an lb with auto attacks what exactly should I be doing? I was using my normal rotation then they told me to stop attacking... So what exactly should I be doing while they build up lb.?

Run around and look pretty, or only use Lightning and watch the dot dry.

In all seriousness, if you need LB on Heart you are going to wipe either way. If everyone has not died and Healer Esuna/Leeches the debuff, there should be enough DPS to break Heart without DPS.

It sounds so crazy to me that some groups need to build their LB, but I guess we've all gotta do what we need to in certain situations.

If you're lacking a bit of DPS (which most DF groups are) then building LB for the heart is quite valid. The first video clear I watched on Youtube actually demonstrated it so I assume that this group had taken that advice on board. Yes, it's not needed once you reach a certain DPS ceiling (save it to finish Titan) but for many DF groups if might make or break the battle.

Post-heart, everyone should have one of these handy until they can recite the rotation off the top of their head:

It's more of an insurance measure than a necessity in most cases. Since you can legitimately kill Titan post-heart with 3 or 4 people, getting past that barrier is really the only thing you have to push. I see it far more in DF than anywhere else, most likely for that exact reason.
