FFXIV Endwalker’s first patch, 6.01, is now live and includes the first tier of the Pandæmonium normal raids, Pandæmonium: Asphodelos. To participate in Asphodelos, you must have a level 90 job and a minimum average item level of 565. Warning: there are spoilers below for Endwalker, so stop reading now if you’re avoiding them.
Teased by a cutscene at the end of Endwalker MSQ’s credits, Ascian Elidibus will likely be involved in Pandæmonium’s questline. The Pandæmonium raids will also likely include some sort of reference to Final Fantasy II or Final Fantasy XII. Pandæmonium is FFII’s final castle-of-hell dungeon and a final boss by the name of Pandæmonium also appears in FFXII.
The Savage version of Pandæmonium, along with the treasure hunt dungeon the Excitatron 6000, will release in the 6.05 patch.
