FFXIV Pandaemonium Anabaseios item level requirement

Anabaseios’ item level requirement is likely to be 605. As the previous tiers were both 565 and 585 respectively.

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.

FFXIV Pandaemonium Anabaseios what to expect

Pandaemonium Anabaseios will continue the storyline of Pandaemonium, the raid questline for Endwalker. Anabaseios will have 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 expected to be quite difficult, as it is the final tier within the raid series.
