Revelations from FFXIV Patch 2.55 [SPOILERS]

Don’t forget to be courteous and keep unmarked spoilers and rampant discussion about new events in here while the first few waves go about their progress! But, the time has come! Let’s get down to business!

There’s not much new to add to the world-lore, but let’s start with three now-knowns:

The Son of Midgardsormr
Nidhogg is a son of Midgardsormr and the one who is rousing the others to war. The dragon seen landing on the bridge does not seem to be one of Midgardsormr’s children, however. Instead, Vishap is referred to as one of Nidhogg’s greatest champions.

Raubahn’s Adopted Son
The adopted lalafell Pipin Tarupin has glorious hair, a bull-horns helmet, and just as much honor as Raubahn.

Mechanic Limitations
By current indications, the time bubble still seems to be a thing. Plot armor, not so much. Content seems to go in order of patch release (though not necessarily level). So, for instance, there’s now evidence supporting the assumption that, despite their discrete lines, The Binding Coil of Bahamut happens before Syrcus Tower, and Syrcus Tower happens before The Final Coil of Bahamut. For further clarity, the battle with Ramuh would have taken place at the same time as Syrcus Tower and the Second Coil of Bahamut. Despite this there’s yet to be any evidence to make claims that time movement accompanies time passage.
