So, hey, maybe you haven’t yet finished the main scenario for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers. That’s fine, we’re not judging what you do with your life. But, well… the latest anniversary story is filled with spoilers. Big spoilers. Spoilers not just for the main scenario but for another bit of content, one that will be immediately obvious if you’ve paid attention to everything running in the background for the past several years.
So what’s the story about? Well… yeah, this one is spoiler-ish enough that even just stating the premise

It ties a lot of stuff together. If you’ve already experienced all of it, of course, you needn’t fret about spoilers; just go ahead and read it
