Mob19 Icon.pngCalamity  CULTURAL TERM

A Calamity is a cataclysmic event that signals the end of an Astral Era, thus leading into a time of hardship known as an Umbral Era. Though there have been seven Calamities total in the history of Eorzea[1], most instances of "The Calamity" refer to the Seventh Umbral Calamity—the descent of Dalamud in the year 1572 of the Sixth Astral Era, leading to the release of Bahamut at the Battle of Carteneau.
