The Empty is a region devastated by the Flood of Light on the First in Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers. It covers approximately nine-tenths of Norvrandt and is where Eden resides.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Empty was created by the Flood of Light that nearly consumed the entirety of the First, having only been stopped by the intercession of the Oracle of Light. Due to the nature of light aether, the aether in the region was brought to an almost complete standstill, leaving a barren wasteland nearly completely covered in nothing but featureless white terrain, not unlike the Burn found on the Source.

Detecting a powerful presence in the Empty suspected to be a Lightwarden, the Warrior of Light, Ryne, Thancred, and Urianger travelled into the depths of the Empty where they found the dormant Eden. Making their way inside and subjugating the creature, they discovered that Eden was capable of manipulating the surrounding aether. Theorizing that they could use Eden to return the flow of aether to the Empty and restore life to the First, they set out to pockets of the Empty that still had some aetherial activity, and used Eden to summon elemental Primals, which they then slew in order to disperse their aether across the Empty.

Locations[edit | edit source]

The Empty covers the whole region around Norvrandt. The player can freely explore only a small area that is accessible via a NPC in the south of Amh Araeng, as well as Eden's Core. Through the Eden raids, the player can also travel to the few parts of the Empty that still have strong aetherial activity.
