Main Scenario Quests, Echoes of a Fallen Star
“With Eulmore on the path to a brighter tomorrow, the Scions await such time as the Exarch might return them home. Not in idleness, however — for when has any world been content to grant its heroes respite?”
Raid Dungeon, Eden’s Verse:
“Having taken control of the gargantuan sin eater known as Eden, Ryne continues her quest to restore the dormant elements of the Empty, with Urianger, Thancred, and the Warrior of Darkness by her side every step of the way─yet the awakening of an enigmatic young woman may put the mission in jeopardy. Will this erstwhile foe continue to pose a threat, or is there more to her heart than darkness?”
New Dungeon, Anamnesis Anyder:
Chronicles of a New Era, The Sorrow of Werlyt:
“The Garlean Empire seeks to break the stalemate with Eorzean forces by unleashing the culmination of its twisted experimentation─a brutal warmachina that exists only to destroy. On both sides of the battlefield, shadows of the past loom large as the decisive clash draws ever closer.”
The previous Shadowbringers update, titled 5.1 “Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty,” introduced a brand new NieR Automata-themed patch featuring new gear, a new dungeon, new game+, and the Fellowship.
