Steel will clash against fang and furious flames. But when the dust settles, only the victor will decide the fate of man, dragon, and the broken bonds that once united them.[/su_quote]

Sohr Khai

This skyborne splendor was once home to Ratatoskr, brood-sister to Hraesvelgr and Nidhogg, until the treachery of mortals ensured that its stones would never again ring under the she-wyrm’s talons. The dragons named it “Sohr Khai,” a grieving apology for their failure to avert her fate, and they watched with infinite sadness as Ratatoskr’s empty roost was overrun by bird and beast. [/su_quote]

Hullbreaker Isle (Hard)

And so like the mists which had withdrawn to reveal the isle did those ambitious souls depart to seek fame and fortune elsewhere, allowing Eynzahr Slafyrsyn to quietly petition Admiral Merlwyb for permission to repurpose it as a training ground for Maelstrom recruits. The storm marshal would have you be the first to brave this gauntlet, that you might pit yourself against the isle’s fearsome fauna and the Maelstrom’s elite, and in so doing rouse their spirits. Will you give the storm officers a beating they will not soon forget, or will they stand triumphant at the last and shout that they have bested the Warrior of Light?[/su_quote]

Level Requirement Disciple of War or Magic level 60
Item level Requirement Average item level 200 or above
Party Size Four players
Time Limit 90 minutes
Quest Storming the Hull
Prerequisites Players must first complete the main scenario quest “Heavensward,” and have also completed the quest “King of the Hull.”

Moogle Beast Tribe Quests

It seems as though the Moogle Beast Tribe Quests will be more similar to the old Ixal line of beast tribe quests.

By completing daily beast tribe quests and raising your reputation, you will be able to purchase various items such as furnishings, minions, and mounts.[/su_quote]

Moogle

Hildebrand Adventuring

I absolutely can’t wait for this addition. I always love exploring and questing to further this side story extravaganza!

What shocking revelations will they expose when they arrive in the Holy See? [/su_quote]

Anima Story to Progress

But the lingering shade of Nidhogg, clad in the flesh of the Azure Dragoon, marked the occasion by spilling the blood of his own kind─a timely atrocity to remind the children of Ishgard that the conflict was far from over. In those twilight hours Nidhogg cried out for vengeance, and his brethren raised their voices for the final chorus of the Dragonsong War.[/su_quote]

I absolutely love how ominous the preview pictures look for this update. I wonder what will be coming down from that fiery cloud. Will something be summoned?
