To the Stars Above (Final Fantasy XIV)

Published by Tacocat in the blog Tacocat's blog. Views: 184

Astrologian is a job in FFXIV whose practitioners calls upon the power of the stars to perform healing magic. Upon investigating the job's Encyclopaedia Eorzea entry I discovered this bit of flavor text describing its Limit Break 3, Astral Stasis:

An earlier entry regarding the Twelve, primordial gods to the Eorzeans, lends some context to the seventh heaven:

The Limit Break 3 in question can be seen here:

The feat itself is most easily observed at around 0:32 where it is clear that the Astro is calling down light and "favoring the battlefield" with healing magic. This light, according to the excerpts above, comes from the gate of the seventh heaven situated at the pole star.

Our pole star is Polaris, located some 433Ly away. Not necessarily Hydaelyn's pole star, but given the seventh heaven is farther out than six entire constellations and is considered the "highest of Astral domains", I think relating the two should be fine.

LB3 is cast roughly 2 seconds before the magic arrives to the battlefield.
