Hey guys have been spending the past couple days trying to decrypt these GM messages. Not in language translation, but in their meaning...

" Hear my words if you are in search of truth…The disaster in Hydaelyn is imminent…The time of awakening has come for those who are preparing to tackle the chaos in motion…The future is not immutable… You can still change it…When the sixth sun will have set and the seventh moon shine in the sky, the ocean of clouds poured a rain of fiery flames and shadows fatal burst forth from the depths of the earth…The “Seventh Purification” predicted by Mezaya approaches…You who are in search of truth… wake up and put yourself against the imminent threat…"

The key phrase here is the part about the sixth sun and seventh moon. Now my theory could be a few hours off depending on if i translated the times correctly. I assumed The Lodestone posted the event ending time in Japanese time. Soooo.. Could be a couple hours off but you will get the general idea.

But first lets make sure my math is right:

168 earth hours in an earth week
196 eorzea days in an earth week
32 eorzea days per month
1 eorzea month/ all moons cycle 37.333 hours
full moon hit on 9-17 in game time at 4:20 (ish) central time (all of my non JP earth times will be central)

Lodestone said the event would be over at 5-8 @ 6am, or roughly 157 hours from the point that the moon turned
full. That is 9420 minutes, or 134.5 Eorzea days.

Which means That if my math is correct, the event will end on 1-22 In game time during a half moon cycle (which is the 7th moon phase in the cycle.) IF this is JP time that the event ends in, that would make it Sunday, May 8 @ 6am central. This sounds very strange. I'm hoping its just a time conversion issue from Lodestone. But on that note, it does make it the 7th moon phase.

My other theory is that it would be the 7th day of a month, which would make it roughly sunday @ 11pm-12pm (I am now done using a calculator before my brain melts)

Any Suggestions? I think the hard work is out of the way I just need my math errors fixed, hopefully just time conversions.

Any thoughts?


Luv- Hek

6th sun = sixth astral era. Our current era.

7th moon = seventh umbral era. The upcoming era.

Good Theory! i know it does refer to astral and umbral eras, possibly one theory is a coincidence to the other. Although It doesn't specifically link the sun and moon to astral and umbral, it does make sense. The more i think about it the more I just figure the events are gonna happen after the hatching tide

Which ends May 9th I think. So maybe we'll get 1.18 then and whatever it holds.

I think you put way too much time into that. And its freakin awesome.
I kinda like that theory.
On another note, if they really have coordinated all this to happen as we go into the 7th era, then...Kudos to SE. Its the little things like this that gives me hope, assuming they do it on the 8th 9th.

Yea thats my luck... the day after i spend hours trying to figure this out is when they blow my theory out of the
water... supposedly... BUT!!! Maybe they will surprise us....




Or they won't. Shame on me for thinkin they would do something mystical and cool that would require us to figure it out intead of releasing it in a letter up front

:(

I'm a sucker for a theory with compelling evidence... sadly math destroys me, so I'll have to take your word for it.

Honestly I'd like to think they have a few things in store for us over the coming weeks even if we already downloaded it and didn't know it.
