Yessss.... It's time! Join Kaleb and Joe as they recount the story, and their experiences with Final Fantasy XI: Rise of the Zilart! 

ZIlart

Once upon a time, there was an ancient race of people called the Zilart. They wanted to harness the power of the crystals below Vana’Diel to bring about Paradise thousands of years ago... This plan was being cock blocked by the Shadow Lords “”””noise”””””. His defeat has silenced him. We set about investigating this shit.

We meet an old woman, from yet another lost civ, named the Kuluu. The Kuluu were opposed to the Zilart’s plan of Paradise, and destroyed their base. This led to the entire race to be cursed, and turned into freakishly demented renditions of the Tonberry.

THe adventurer then travels the lands in search of 8 fragments of light, scattered around the whole fucking planet in these cermet headstones. The adventurer must then bring them to the island of Zepwell, where the Dawnmaidens, another fucking race of people opposed to the Zilarts, will guide your path.

After obtaining the fragments of light, we arrive at the Chamber of Oracles, where you fight a trio of Antica before meeting up with the Dawnmaidens. They let you in on the fact that the FIve Ark Angels, and all of the races of Vana Diel, were created from crystals. They urge the player to go to Delfucks tower to stop the Zilart princes.

Using Aldo’s sister, Verena, Ealdnarche is able to tap into the Memory of the Ancients stored within, and reactivates Delfucks Tower. Verena is cast aside, and Ealdnarche teleports to Tu Lia. The party returns to Norg, and finds out that the player needs  cerulean crystals to place into the Hall of the Gods. Once these are obtained, we pass through the gates, and arem et by Yve’noile, a Dawnmaiden. She explains that the Zilart divided the power of the crystals into smaller crystals. A meltdown occured, and the energy released led to all living things on Vana’diel. Yve’noile begs us to defeat the Eald’narche and free him from his binds.

Now for the fun part. We head to Ala’Loff Amphitheater in Tu’Lia, and defeat the five Ark Angels. Lion eventually joins up, and invites us on a hot cruise once this shit blows over.

When the player reaches the core of Tu’Lia, Lion, Zeid, and Aldo are already battling Eald’narche, but he crushes their frail bodies. We are offered one last chance at joining him in paradise, which I desparately tried to accept, we attack. Once Eald’narche is defeated by us, he tries to restart the crystal line before it’s completed. This starts a meltdown to destroy everything. This is when Lion casts herself into the core to stop everything. Yve’noile appears, and gets Eald’narch to return to the crystal.

We go tell Gilgamesh about his dead daughter, who apparently was adopted. He seems to shrug it off, and Verena states that she can sense her presence in this world, and doesn’t believe she is dead…...
