Introduction to Alexander

Alexander is the new end-game raid in FFXIV: Heavensward and it is modeled off the mechanical fortress that has appeared in earlier Final Fantasy games; most noticeably IX. Alexander is a primal and is worshipped by the goblin beast tribe. Alexander will serve as both the dungeon as well as the main antagonist.

The raid will come in two versions, named Normal and Hard Modes. Normal mode will be about the same difficulty as the Final Coil of Bahamut with echo and released two weeks after the start of Heavensward, while Hard Mode will be at a higher difficulty than FCoB and released two weeks later.

In order to unlock the raid you must be level 60 and have completed the main scenario available at the expansion’s launch. It is not required that you complete the Final Coil of Bahamut as the raid is unrelated.

We know that Alexander will contain a different loot system to the one used in Coil raids however it is not yet known what this will be. Drops from Normal and Hard modes will look the same, however they will have different item levels and drops from Hard mode will be dyeable.
