Amaurot is a location from Final Fantasy XIV. It was a city in the original world of the Ascians, but was destroyed by the sunder along with the original world. The Ascian Emet-Selch created a replica of Amaurot on The First to maintain the city and its people from his memories.
Amaurot is the city of the Ascians on the original star. The city itself is no more due to a calamitous event involving wild creation magicks, and Hydaelyn sundering the world. The ruins of Amaurot exist on the reflection of the First due to a lack of calamities to completely destroy it. Emet-Selch recreates a memory of Amaurot moments before the calamity taking place within the Tempest, which the Warriors of Darkness travel through to face Emet-Selch.
Another level 80 dungeon, Akadaemia Anyder, is also located within the city.
Amaurot's background music is an arrangement of the track of The Tempest area. Another arrangement plays during the Amaurot duty.
- The concept of the replica Amaurot is similar to the Dream Zanarkand from Final Fantasy X.
- The giants in the city seem to be modeled after the faculty members of Balamb Garden in Final Fantasy VIII. The last boss of Akadaemia Anyder is one of the giants who transforms into Quetzalcoatl that looks exactly like its Final Fantasy VIII incarnation.
- The city is inspired by the fictional capital city Amaurot in Thomas More's Utopia, with several references to the novel located within the city. More's Amaurot is described as a place where individual wealth does not exist, and everyone contributes to society as a whole.
