The soul of the star is in the crystal. The two pillars framing the exit, are unlike any other pillars seen in Pitioss. After multiple play throughs, we’ve noticed sometimes as you approach Ifrit’s statue the first time, the OST Overworld Music, “Wanderlust” track begins to play. "When I asked, Tabata shot down that one bonkers theory about Pitioss Ruinsâ story, adding that there are aspects of Final Fantasy XVâs background lore that will be explained in future downloadable content. Do you see it?? It fits the tone of FFXV perfectly. It is widely believed that Episode Gladio involves going in to the Underworld. Burning her on the Pyre spread the star scourge into the air, but it was a necessary evil. http://imgur.com/7CgU5YF. Original theory by husband & wife team, Perona77. It will be interesting to see what happens with Episode Gladio, if he truly does enter the Underworld through Taelpar Crag…then this would only further prove what we are writing here. Keltainentoukokuu ( talk ) 00:54, September 8, 2017 (UTC) He actually said the opposite in an interview that came out today; that the Ifrit theory isn't correct and that they might explain the â¦ Most all of them have a common theme: A blue choker to increase HP recovery, Safety Bit to protect from sudden death, Silver Bangle to increase HP, a Megalixer to restore full health. I have fallen into the rabbit hole of deep dives intoÂ Final Fantasy XV lore and I donât think Iâll ever escape. How appropriate is Chapter 0 now?! The steel beam leads to a small tunnel, finally, they are able to ascend. SUMMARY: We want to thank everyone who previously read and enjoyed our Pitioss Ruins: Revelations theory. Eos’ soul is in the crystal. http://imgur.com/k6yRZY8. http://imgur.com/hxgqEhd, Huh. But somehow, this still isn’t quite enough…. http://imgur.com/lJLKOFp. Upon being defeated, Karlobos creates a whirlpool that sucks Ifrit into the river. http://imgur.com/P3362KR. Both families are key to bringing about the Dawn. Noctis even groans here. Ifrit needs this place to pass the test of time, an actual train would be difficult to maintain. Garnets can be associated with fire. The first room players can enter is full of moving spikes and platforms. Once Noctis hits this switch he says “This’ll work”! They want every trace of the original Eos to be erased, and if her bloodline can’t do it, then fuck the planet, enjoy your eternal night. Notice that his statue seems to have smashed through a steel beam that runs the length of room…more imagery that he has smashed through something. The dungeon's design is dominated by glowing orange spikes, numerous statues of unknown figures, and in its deepest chamber, a giant stone statue of a woman holding a sword over her head; the identities of the figures are unknown, but the giant statue of the woman appears to be the focal point of the ruins, being found in their deepest point before the player begins their return to the surface. We realized that if the statues, puzzles, and events in Pitioss are symbolicâ¦then the items strewn about the dungeon and details on objects must be as well. Could she have fallen in love with a human, and become pregnant? Don’t forget Doomtrain is in Amano’s Big Bang art. http://imgur.com/daYGUAz, We know Gladio leaves the party at Cape Caem. In our original Pitioss: A Tale of Love & Despair post, several commenters pointed out holes in our theory that we kind of agreed with. The article made it seem like the whole theory was debunked, however, we contacted the author of the Kotaku article and based on his response the only part that was debunked was the fact that Ifrit loved Eos. The spinning wheels represent his struggle to stay at the surface as he’s still being drug down the river. We have all been as blind as Ignis up to this point. http://kotaku.com/a-wild-theory-about-final-fantasy-xvs-secret-dungeon-1792490713. From Ifrit’s point of view, he knows that he is on the final legs of his ascent with Eos. You can see Eos’s statue clearly at just one point while in this room. Author of Blood, Sweat, and Pixels. A few other items found on your way out are: Warm Inners (Reduces DMG from ICE), Insulated Inners (Reduces DMG from Lightning), and 2 Behemoth Horns (Bahamut is the Arabic word for Behemoth). The way to continue your path is to literally jump into the planet from the top, as if you’re falling into the planet, past lava, through the hole Ifrit made. The last thing the other Astrals would want to do is touch Star Scourge. This can be evidenced by the building materials ALL OVER this dungeon, represented through items like rusty bits, chrome bits, metal scraps, building stones….Ifrit had a specific reason for this location…but we will get to that at the end. It still applies. After the heroes defeat Karlobos, he creates a whirlpool that wrecks their ship. And then FINALLY, the reason Ifrit has trekked through absolute hell & faced so many dangers is before him. http://imgur.com/KWiH8JW. Moving Spike Wall of Death¶ That is certainly a large and dangerous obstacle here in this room that you will need to constantly watch at theâ¦ Thatâs good news for Final Fantasy purists who rejected the Pitioss Ruins theory from the get-go, even as it persisted within the fandom. Let’s move on…we head through the now open door, and the music changes to dungeon music and a notice of officially entering Pitioss Ruins pops up…as if saying you weren't in it before. UPDATE 2/16: Check out youtuber Caelum Rabanastre XII/XV's video where he uses the Flying Armiger out of bounds glitch to fly around and IN the Rock of Ravatogh!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this theory, we hope that it at least inspired you to look at FFXV a little differently. My god…how tragic is this?!? This is why it can restore the Dawn. The Hexatheon don’t speak of him, there’s no lore in game, all we know is he is “The Betrayer”. The cage represents that he is either imprisoned, locked in thought, or that he is alone in his way of thinking & morals. We did want to make it clear that we are the original creators of this theory. The game doesnât try to explain why Pitioss Ruins exists, what any of the surreal statues and passageways mean, or why you have to jump your way through a giant demonic wall en route to uncovering the dungeonâs secrets. They most likely believed that nothing was wrong, and Eos would be fine in her prison of utter darkness, continuing the cycle of Dawn for all eternity. On the precipice there’s one final trial of a wall of lava on each side. Either way, it’s clear an attack didn’t occur, most likely because Ifrit and Eos are literally oozing Star Scourge . Right after this hall of chaos, the player’s perspective radically changes & a new somber song begins to play. This is all seems very random…but it’s not, there is a tale being old here. Pitioss is one of the more unique dungeons in Final Fantasy 15. Pitioss Ruins â Final Fantasy XV There are quite a few dungeons to explore in Final Fantasy XV, many of which the story doesnât actually take â¦ There’s cave outcroppings, even.

They glow with the same red lights we see when an Iron Giant spawns. Ifrit goes as far as to side with and aid Ardyn , slowing the plans of the other Astrals for centuries. There’s a giant hole in the globe that you have to jump through to reach the center of the globe…all while dodging fiery spikes (could this represent lava?). He is dying!! Real. He wants to lay his tale out in a very visual & symbolic way, down to the last detail. Doomtrain literally rolls up to the perch, and it is inserted in to his chin, just where the bottom of his tongue would be! Not the Lucian Kings, not The Oracles, and certainly not the other Astrals! That being said, we're really not sure how much was debunked so take this theory with a grain of salt and enjoy it for what it is, a theory! Include crossovers; Exclude crossovers; Show only crossovers; Completion Status. SO….the first Meteor is the one that is holding Titan down at the Disc of Cauthess. And the other twin’s line led to the Nox Fleuret family. So we turned to the only interaction we have with Ifrit in the entire game, the battle at the Citadel, hoping for SOMETHING. This is the realm of the dead, the point of no return. Inside the globe itself we noticed something crazy! Ifrit then continued to oppose the other Astrals plans to have the Lucian line purify the Crystal. But no. What Ifrit sees before him, is not what he was expecting...there is something horribly wrong with Eos. Lore See also: Story within Pitioss Ruins Chapter 1: An Idea. We then jump out of the side of the building. ". This explains the heavy use of symbolism throughout Pitioss Ruins. Regardless, this is the last leg of Ifrit’s journey out of the Underworld.

In particular, we couldn’t find a placing for for Tiamat & Kraken. Past the statue of Ifrit, the only path forward is random, twisted steel beams. http://imgur.com/E74VkbZ, We are positive that while Ifrit originally enters the Underworld in Lestallum, he exits the Underworld somewhere in Taelpar Crag. And boy, did we find something! See the veins sticking out? I only just completed the Pitioss Ruins last night and was amazed at how unique the dungeon was. The story in Pitioss, as said in our last post is a tale told through symbolism. We want to make note of this now because this pertains to the entirety of Pitioss. http://imgur.com/SUBh6ly, Ifrit isn’t in the Underworld yet, rather deep inside the planet Eos, approaching the Door to the Underworld. In Final Fantasy Peasant’s Youtube video about our original Pitioss theory, he made a connection that we did not about the Genji Gloves. Don’t worry fam, we got you. “A dead flame must burn no more”…Why is he a dead flame?? In FF8 Marlboro Tentacles are a key ingredient to finishing the quest to obtain the Doomtrain summon…also, this door is odd, it is spinning. Ifrit is forced to stand and balance on top of his log as he floats down a river of fire. At the cost of his life, at the cost of becoming a Betrayer, at the cost of spreading star scourge unto the world. Hope to see you there!

He is still stuck in a mighty river rapid represented by the player spinning as they stand on the top of the spinning pillars. You can’t have light without dark. From here on out, Solheim only has minor things built, such as hallways or the general shape of the rooms. We were convinced that this tale HAD to be true. There is nothing in this room of chaos that looks like people from Solheim built. Only those who could pay the fare with coins placed under their tongues are granted passage. It’s such a weird part of the game, isn’t it??? Moment, or a sudden idea involving the use of a Meteor. http://imgur.com/wqyhnL3, (Oh look…Noctis is riding on the back of Doomtrain…towards his death…). He could have just written a book & hidden it somewhere. It’s pure malice that they put this on humans.

THANK YOU to reddit user /u/PenguinSunday for pointing out that in this final room as you land in the circle of lava and hit the switch to open the door to Doomtrain's room, the music changes from What Lies Within (normal dungeon music) to Disquiet (the music that played during Noctis's nightmare) after you hit the switch. Paying attention to even the smallest of details in Pitioss truly opened the story to us in a completely new way. http://imgur.com/OLj564Z. Let’s take a closer look at it…. This exit point, must be the “entrance” in Taelpar Crag that Gladio will use in Episode Gladio. It fits the tone of FFXV perfectly.
