I think ambuscade weapons are as much of an "Ultimate" weapon they are willing to add to the game anymore.

The current development strategy for XI is all about maximizing the amount of time that players are engaged with a piece of content vs effort spent by the dev team. And from that perspective, adding more ultimate weapons makes a lot of sense, so I fully expect that to happen within the next year or 2.

Ambuscade weapons were a step in that direction, but I don't believe that bonanza weapons will show up anywhere else.

Would be unfortunate seeing as a lot of those weapons are good/unique. If anything it might be that they are just going to give you a 'choose 1 option' for them at at the end of voracious.

I might be remembering wrong, but isn't Ra'Kaznar, the gateway to Tartarus? We never went through to Tartarus of course, but I seem to recall that.
As for Alex and Odin, they represent Light and Dark as elements. Not as good and evil. Though Odin is always questionable, in particular since the Kindred answer to him.

I would question whether Odin has a relation to the Kindred in order to create hard times to create stronger mortals to be his Einharjar. Even in mythology Odin has very extreme methods, it would surprise me he would allow the whole crystal war as a way to get more einharjar for ragnarok.

i like the direction they're going with this because its bringing up some of the mysteries that we've known for a while and filling us in more.

Olduum and Ramuul in particular is an interesting plot thread and i like how they managed to even tie Zeni NM bosses into the lore.

Theres also Valhalla and Odin.. i'm not ever surprised by Odin's involvement anymore but RoV did give an explanation as to why Odin does what he does. This time however, it does look like the mage they refer to as leading the rebellion is Garazu-Horeizu. The presence of Honoi-Gomoi and Uran-Mafran in the story also allude to this already.

Now the question is how this ties in with the world eater egg and the co destiny destroyers.

Been considering doing a few videos on the story of Voracious so far and brainstorming where it may be going. Agreed with your points here.

Relic, Mythic, Empyrean, Aeonic, Celestial
You know another line of legendary weapons is coming. It's just a question of when. It's by far the easiest way SE can keep people subbed for a long time on a minimal investment.

Oh, like these thingies...?

I'm of the opinion that they're already here, just not implemented yet other than as prizes.

Crazy weapons.

They increased the amounts of times a year they hold these lotteries, those weapons were made specifically for this and will never be available anywhere else.

Mind refreshing my memory as to what RoV said about Odin please?

Despite doing the missions on multiple characters I can't for the life of me remember much of the story outside of the major plot tie ins.

The Void is driven back by the conflict of Light and Darkness, personified by Altana and Promathia. Promathia's early death put this balance in peril so Altana appointed Odin as a proxy.

Never let it be said that Odin shirked his responsibilities to the Goddess.

there isnt a complete collection of story summaries out there as far as i know.

my guess is the next part of the story involves going to the Mamool Ja in search of the Olduum Staff. thats like the next logical step
