Putting a halt to Gaius’s treacherous plot, shining light on the Ascians hiding in the shadows, and uncovering the truth behind Bahamut are only some of the many endeavors that were embarked upon. Which aspects of A Realm Reborn are strongest and most vivid in your memories? Share a screenshot of the most memorable portion of this era with the Community Team as they will be selecting 100 of the best and awarding them with an in-game item.
