  • Jessie greets you with a grave expression.
  • You learn from Jessie that a surge of anomalous energy has been detected at the Yawn. After concluding that this is Omega's way of summoning you back to the rift, you agree to meet Cid, Nero, and Alpha at the site.
  • You rendezvous with Cid and the others at the Yawn, and prepare for your next foray into Omega's perilous domain.
  • Omega once more sends you through a gauntlet of obstacles for the purpose of reevaluating your combat capabilities. Despite your success, however, the machine seems dissatisfied with your performance, and the ensuing exchange between Omega and Midgardsormr affords a glimpse into their antagonistic past. Cid will almost certainly have thoughts to share concerning these revelations.
※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • You speak with Cid, and he declares your new base of operations in the rift ready for the trials ahead. The denizens of the “Sigmascape” await...

Forename, I'm glad you're here. In case you haven't heard, we've observed a huge surge of anomalous energy coming from the Yawn...

I've a nasty feeling this means Omega's ready to go ahead with the next stage of its “experiment.” But Master Garlond is on his way, so let's hear what he has to say.
Care to share your thoughts on this, Chief?

Our colleagues on the ground have reported the appearance of “mysterious floating structures” inside the Yawn.

If you recall, we were investigating a similar anomaly when Alpha and Alte Roite made their appearance.

Omega certainly knows how to get our attention. I blush to recall the eagerness with which we plunged into the abyss, ignorant of the warped gladiatorial contest that awaited us within.

But what a staggering collection of opponents! Plucked from the pages of both history and fiction for their ability to pose a threat to Omega...

And should you prevail against these interdimensional champions, what then shall be your prize? Why, a battle against the most devastating weapon this world has ever seen! How marvelous!

...He says with eyes aflame. For once, I wish you were being sarcastic.

Anyway─the energy surge. Based on our previous experience, it seems highly probable that it is our signal to rejoin the fray.

Needless to say, it is an invitation we cannot refuse─not when the alternative is Omega unleashing its creations on Eorzea.

Well, Forename? Are you ready to answer the call?
Well, I'm afraid Biggs and Wedge won't be answering any calls just yet─they're still mending from the ambush in the control center.

Yes, of course. We'll just have to struggle on without them for the time being.

Don't worry─Nero and I will see to it that you receive all the support you need. Defeat is not an option!

I do believe Alpha here agrees.

Oh, that reminds me! I've got something special for you, little fellow. Come with me.
A custom-made Ironworks uniform! Oh, you do look smart, I must say.
He is part of the expedition team, after all. And considering the dangers lurking in that rift, it's only right that we give him some protective equipment.
How very thoughtful of you, Jessie. And there I was thinking you were just sizing him up for a new range of merchandise.
Unlike you, I can do two things at once.

What will you say?

I wish I had that uniform...

What about my protective equipment?
Really? I wouldn't be seen dead in it.

This is perfectly acceptable attire for an engineer. Sturdy, practical, and best of all, most stains will scrub right out.

I'm not sure it'd last long on you, what with all the fighting, but if you're desperate for a set, you're welcome to have a word with our tailors!

You are a famous hero who can afford his own gear. I'll bet you could buy a house for the cost of what you're wearing!

Joking aside, I doubt even a fine uniform like ours would last long on you, what with all the fighting you get up to. We'd need to tailor something specific to your needs, and make it out of far more durable materials. And by durable, I mean expensive.

Saying that...if you were in a position to provide said materials, I'm sure our artisans would happily work day and night, all blissful smiles and sparkly eyes, to make you something suitable.

Fascinating though this discussion of Ironworks garmenture undoubtedly is, might our time not be better spent, say, traveling to the Yawn?

Omega awaits!
Quest Accepted

Hmph. How inviting.

I'm ready when you are, Forename. Say the word, and we'll take the plunge.
Right, then. Into the Yawn we go!
I am with you, mortals, along with what scant wisdom I can provide.

Kweh? ...Kweh!
You'll be on your way to the Yawn soon, I expect. I'd tell you to take care, but... Well, good luck!
Take a good look, Forename. I think you'll find the wreckage down there quite familiar.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
to you, sir. Will you be descending into the Yawn?
Enter the Interdimensional Rift?

...That should do it. Our new base of operations is up and running!

Now, what I'd really like to do is delve a little deeper into Omega's past. But as our dragon seems disinclined to indulge my curiosity, we had best focus on the task at hand.

Let's get on with conquering the occupants of this “Sigmascape,” shall we?
Quest Completed
to you, sir. Will you be descending into the Yawn?
Enter the Interdimensional Rift?
The “Sigmascape,” eh? I shall set to work analyzing the unspeakable horrors within.

Alpha will now be joining you, Nero, Midgardsormr, and Cid on your return. Give the first Level Checker a whack and Cid will get to work on the barrier. Alpha will charge forward... into a trap. The three of you that remain will need to deal with the adds, a pair of Sigmascape Roaders. Once taken care of the barrier will fall and Alpha will be freed, allowing you to proceed. You'll arrive with Alpha and Midgardsormr without your garlean companions. You'll need to face three more Sigmascape Roaders more or less by yourself, your two companions just auto-attacking. After a while three Sigmascape Koja will appear and join in the fight. Once they're down, even more add boxes will drop down, but Alpha will use Dispel Card to take out all the Level Checkers at once. As the boxes prepare to open a cutscene will play, and your other two companions will join you, Nero now in his armor and armed with his magitek hammer. The fight will be against three Roaders and three Koja. Gather them all up and AoE them near Nero, who will occasionally use his own AoE Mighty Overdrive. More boxes will drop during the fight, just deal with them the same as the first batch. Once they're all done you'll head to the next section, Alpha will use Dispel Card on another horde of level checkers, and Nero and you will mop up the four adds. At the final platform you'll encounter Dadaluma. He'll hit pretty hard, especially with Explosive Fists and his dodgeable Aura Cannon, but Nero will ready his Mighty Shatter shortly into the fight and knock off a good 30% of his HP. Just keep up the pressure and he should fall before too long.
