Story[edit | edit source]

Lightning is in a fight with the Sicarius Bahamut on the tracks of the Hanging Edge, while her Eidolon Odin stands by watching. Lightning is still weak, and the fight looks to be short, but a last-second salvo from Wol saves her. She's not happy. Wol doesn't need to be following her anymore. Wol disagrees, saying she did ask for his help... and hasn't paid him yet. With a huff, Lightning accepts his company.

So why would Odin merely watch instead of helping her? Because, she says, she's not really the true Lightning. Eidolons like Odin show up to claim those consumed by despair, but she had fought back against Odin and won, making him a strong friend. She's not certain if she can do that again, against Odin or Bahamut, but sees no other way to get her strength back.

Wol keeps fighting in her place, against fiends and Sicarius. It's working okay for moving them forward, but it's questionable about actually solving the problem: Lightning will have to fight for herself in the end. And there's more than despair here. Despair is just a quick way to die, as Wol has seen in Palamecia. There's an inner light that drives a person forward in spite of despair... but Lightning doesn't know where her light went. Perhaps that's the key.

LIghtning has hope.jpg

With Odin's next fight, Lightning insists on doing it alone -- no help. Reluctantly, Wol complies. But it's a short time until Lightning lies defeated and despondent. Going against orders, Wol blocks the killing blow, yelling that it's hope that has kept her going. With a shock, Lightning realizes he's right -- it was hope. Wol knocks Odin out, and Odin acknowledges the change by giving Lightning a new Eidolith crystal.

That leaves one last thing: Wol's reward. Wol asks to see her strength... by fighting him! She readily agrees, since she's been itching to fight something. It's a titanic battle, but Wol gains the upper hand. It looks to be over, until Lightning counters with a super-powerful attack series that lays Wol flat. Wol is elated at the fight, and marvels that he ever thought he had a chance against someone fated to challenge the Gods.

And with that, Wol has fulfilled this part of the Prophecy: Lightning is free -- to go wherever and do whatever she wishes. She's thankful for the help, and offers a final thought: don't get too caught up in the challenge of the future. Let it come in its own time. She climbs atop Odin and disappears back to her own world. Maybe she'll see Palamecia again. Only time will tell.

Event Map[edit | edit source]

Robbed of her ability to fight, Lighting still throws herself into battle, as if by embracing despair she might find hope, and reclaim her light.
~ World Map Description

There are 90 areas in total across three Sectors and two loops, including bridges (one-way routes), switches (locked routes), and 35 treasure chests.

Once the player finishes Sectors 6, 7, 8 and Final, extra areas open up.

  • The Gigantuar Battlefield is a set of areas for collecting EXP and Icon Crystal.png Crystals, similar to the Gigantuar Terrace region.
  • The Sicarius Towers offer ever-more-difficult battles against the four FFXIII Sicariuses, for Ability Tickets and Quartz.
  • The Ultimate Realm is a set of areas with extremely difficult fights. Clearing all three wins an award of Icon Ability Ticket.png Ability Tickets x100.

The region is paired with Crystarium II, which contains further upgrades for Wol's paradigms. You can access the Crystarium by clicking the blue Icon CP.png CP icon in the corner of the Map.

New Play Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The area contains a number of new mechanics and obstacles during play in this region:

  • Bridges -- these are one-way paths from one area to another. In each case, you can't teleport to the destination -- you must go through the bridge to reach it. A bridge will reverse direction each time you cross it.
  • Switches -- some bridges will not be open to cross until a relevant Switch has been passed. Once this is done, the entrance of the bridge will be accessible.
  • Paradigms -- the Region has an extra set of benefits that can be invoked for one turn each. These are enabled and enhanced by completing areas within the Crystarium I and Crystarium II Regions. Benefit sets include Icon Commando.png Commando (attack), Icon Ravager.png Ravager (break), and Icon Sentinel.png Sentinel (defense), with the occasional Icon Shared.png Shared enhancement.

The Sicariuses in this section are particularly hard. On opening, they will cast their main ability, wiping out 90% of your health on the spot, and then cast Break Immunity (enhanced effect).pngBreak Immunity for 3 turns. You'll need to have 3 Sentinel Paradigms in reserve -- or a very good set of healing abilities -- to endure this. Once those 3 turns are over, the fight becomes much easier.

Challenge areas[edit | edit source]

Also, two extra sections open up.

  • The ∞ Sector is a set of areas for collecting EXP and Icon Crystal.png Crystals, similar to the Gigantuar Terrace region. It's divided into element-specific areas for gathering EXP and "Manadrive" fusion materials, the Gigantuar Battlefield for gathering Crystals and Fractals, and the Sicarius areas for challenging the four main foes. Like a Battle Tower, these last four foes get progressively harder each time you defeat them, but they also drop Quartz Components.
  • The Ultimate Realm is a set of areas with extremely difficult fights.
    Clearing each of three for the first time gives in reward Icon Ability Ticket.png Ability Tickets x100.
