Lore & Trivia

Interestingly, the Atomos had a large role in the original iteration of FFXIV.

Way back in Patch 1.2, before A Realm Reborn, Atomos would spawn near Aetheryte Camps and dump hordes of Voidsent into Zones. This was a precursor to the Seventh Umbral Calamity in Eorzea.

We’ve only since encountered them in The Labyrinth of the Ancients and World of Darkness Raids. Though recently in the happenings of Endwalker, we got a little more insight into their existence.

Turns out the Atomos are fused with Planar Rifts, allowing their bodies to act as natural Voidgates between the Source and the Thirteenth Shard. We may even end up using these creatures as a means to transfer ourselves there!

Now doesn’t that make you want your very own pint-sized interdimensional Voidsent?
