The last tier of Final Fantasy XIV’s Pandaemonium raids have opened in Patch 6.4, bringing four new encounters and the conclusion to the story. Here’s what we know including release date, item level requirement, and more.

Final Fantasy XIV has seen a meteoric rise in popularity as an MMO in recent years. The game has seen surges in popularity due to scandals occurring at Blizzard and the decline in their MMO World of Warcraft.

With the conclusion of the story arc with the release of Endwalker, Final Fantasy XIV players are in the after patches, awaiting the next major expansion. During this time developer Square Enix releases periodic patches with content for players to enjoy whilst they prepare for the next major release.

Patch 6.4 brought about the final tier of the raid storyline for Endwalker, Pandaemonium. This last tier contains 4 encounters on both a normal and savage difficulty.

FFXIV Pandaemonium Anabaseios item level requirement

Pandaemonium: Anabaseios’ item level requirement is 615.

Players must fulfill this requirement in order to enter the duty. However, on Savage Difficulty, it is encouraged to bring in as high of an item level as possible in order to meet the DPS checks.

As announced in the recent live letter, Square Enix will be easing up on the requirements for gaining the loot for this savage tier. The amount of Mythos required to exchange for gear has been reduced, and Mythos IV can now be exchanged for any of the previous Mythos in a one-to-one ratio. One Mythos is given to players after completing a fight on Savage difficulty.

FFXIV Pandaemonium Anabaseios: what to expect

Pandaemonium Anabaseios will continue the storyline of Pandaemonium, the raid questline for Endwalker. Anabaseios has 4 encounters like the previous tiers. Each one will require the previous one to unlock as well as the completion of the questline.

Savage Difficulty works similarly to this, however, you won’t need to complete the questline like normal mode. Alongside this, the Savage Difficulty of this raid tier is quite difficult, as it is the final tier within the raid series.

We now know of every encounter within Pandaemonium: Anabaseios, these are:

  • Turn 9: Cocytos
  • Turn 10: Pandaemonium
  • Turn 11: Themis
  • Turn 12: Athena
