Final Fantasy XIV‘s new expansion Stormblood will come with plenty of dungeons for adventurers to explore, and one of those is the Shisui of the Violet Tides.

The dungeon, located in the Turquoise Trench within the area named The Ruby Sea is actually deep under the surface of the ocean.

It used to be a beautiful palace built by Raen refugees who fled from the constant wars that raged across the land above. Unfortunately, wraiths from the void have seized the souls of the inhabitants, including that of the Ruby Princess herself.

The dungeon is accessible at level 62, and will sync players down to level 63 if they’re higher than that. Despite being underwater, it exists within a dome of air, so combat is done on your own two feet. It comes with three rather exciting bosses, each of which has specific mechanics that need to be overcome.
