Adventurers of all races, origins, and creeds. Let it be known that the forces of the Eorzean Alliance, formed of the combined might of Limsa Lominsa, Ul’dah, and Gridania, have presently left the wilds of Thanalan en route to the Carteneau Flats, there to engage in a decisive confrontation with the VIIth Imperial Legion of the Garlean Empire.

Yet this battle is but the means to an end, for the preservation of the realm from Dalamud is our true objective. Joining our host in the capacity of military tactician is Archon Louisoix, who shall helm the last-ditch effort to repel the descending lesser moon. To ensure the success of this mission—and the continued survival of all life upon Eorzea—it is imperative that the Garlean interlopers are put to rout.

Be fairly warned that the enemy is no less determined than we. Resolved to hold its ground, the VIIth Imperial Legion has reportedly summoned reinforcements from Castrum Novum in a move to consolidate its defenses. Should troops from the imperial stronghold be permitted to join the fray, our cause would be dealt a grievous blow. As such, we have dire need of courageous souls who would meet the auxiliary Garlean force in southern Mor Dhona and prevent its merging with the main host.

Our beloved Eorzea lies upon the brink of destruction, and she needs all of her champions to rise to her aid. And so we beseech you, the adventurers of the realm, to gather your strength! Join the battle, and fight to reforge the fate of Eorzea!

I’m very curious about this event. I had envisioned ‘the end' being just like the teaser video Square Enix posted; everyone lined up to do battle beneath Dalamud at the impact site. How they end 1.0 and transition to 2.0 is going to be kind of a unique experience. I can’t imagine many studios will ever attempt to do what SE has done with XIV and sincerely hope they don’t have the need.

The 10PM PDT timing is unfortunate. It makes my attendance nearly impossible. Hope there are plans to record the end and post it. There is an almost nostalgic feeling as this world closes and transitions to 2.0.

Lastly, I think it was a nice gesture they have opened it up to everyone who has played XIV not just those paying.

Yeah, I hope they make the ending rewatchable somehow for those of us who can't be awake at 3 and 5 am. But this event is really fun so far.

Eorzea sure is different these days, even Ul'dah is a ghost town and the same depressing music plays everywhere and the world is about to be blown up. Looking forward to the final event!
