Introduced in the December 2016 update[1], the brand-new battle content, Omen, takes place in a secluded area of Reisenjima. Players carve a path through a variety of mobs and clear a variety of objectives, until they eventually reach the Boss Notorious Monster in the heart of the forest.

Clearing objectives in a certain order will reward players with various spoils, allowing for customization based on the number and strength of party members.
In addition to powerful equipment, players will be able to get their hands on the materials required for further reforging artifact armor, bringing these well-known pieces to the forefront of use once more.

Objectives

Every 5 objectives completed rewards a Paragon Job Card.

Completing a main objective opens the next floor.

White!!.png Main objectives

  • 1st, 2nd and 4th area objectives are:
    • Kill a specific monster (monster cannot be identified)
    • Kill a certain number of "Sweetwater" monsters
    • Kill all the "Transcendent" monsters
    • Kill all the monsters
    • Free floor (very rare)
  • 3rd and 5th area objectives are to kill the respective mini-boss or boss spawned on that floor.

Blue.png Additional Objectives

Apart from objectives required to open ethereal ingresses, the first, second, and fourth area have additional objectives that will display when you are first detected by a foe or are otherwise placed on an enmity list. The number of objectives and time limits are 3 in 180 seconds, 3 in 180 seconds, and 5 in 300 seconds, respectively. Any party member can contribute towards any objective; and as of the May 2017 update[5], Trusts' weapon skills will now contribute to any of the weapon skill related objectives (including skillchains).
The objectives will automatically fail if you leave the area or time expires.

The following objectives have been observed, with X being party size:

  • Vanquish X foes.
  • Use 2×X abilities on your foes.
  • Cast 3×X spells on your foes.
  • Execute X skillchain(s) on your foes! - It seems these must be continuous, so you have to do a 7-step skillchain.
  • Perform 3×X magic bursts on your foes.
  • Deal 3×X critical hits to your foes. - Critical hit weaponskills do count towards this objective, but you get credit for at most 1 critical hit per WS.
  • Use 3×X elemental weapon skills on your foes. - Whether hybrid weaponskills (like Tachi: Jinpu) are considered elemental or physical varies by WS.
  • Use 3×X physical weapon skills on your foes. - Whether hybrid weaponskills (like Blade: Chi, Blade: To, and Blade: Teki) are considered elemental or physical varies by WS.
  • Use 5×X weapon skills on your foes.
  • Reduce your foe's HP by at least 2,000 damage in a single auto-attack. - Monster must have at least 2,000 HP remaining for this trial to be completed. The entire attack round damage is summed to reach 2,000.
  • Reduce your foe's HP by at least 30,000 using a single weapon skill. - Monster must have at least 30,000 HP remaining for this trial to be completed. Any associated skillchain damage is included in the sum.
  • Reduce your foe's HP by at least 15,000 using a using a single magic attack without performing a magic burst. - Monster must have at least 15,000HP remaining for this trial to be completed.
  • Restore at least 500 HP 10 times.

Area of effect attacks only count once regardless how many targets they have.

Omens Currency

  • The current theory that X amount of Omens currency procures a job card appears to be false. A new theory is that when a player obtains X amount of Omens then a Paragon card of the job you are currently using is potentially available to drop. The other factor being the additional objectives you complete from initial aggro on a mob on floors 1, 2 and 4. Each monster that is killed drops XXX amount of Omens which is random. It's possible that both are needed to potentially drop. Needs further testing Information Needed Verification Needed

Rewards

See Omen Rewards for specific item and equipment rewards.

Omen features both personal and boss rewards.

P. BLU Card icon.png Job Cards

The job cards you earn depend on the job you are participating as.

Paragon Job Cards, used to upgrade Reforged Artifact Armor, directly delivered to players (not through the Treasure Pool) after each player meets the requisite conditions:

  • Every 5 objectives completed in Omen, both including killing bosses and additional objectives.
  • Every 5 zone-ins.Verification Needed
  • Every certain number of Omens farmed, on zone-in.Verification Needed

Progress towards earning job cards is saved between runs, and thus potentially between jobs.
If you are truly unable to fit a job into your group's strategy, job cards may be traded for other job cards by speaking with Coelestrox: Ten cards of one type may be traded for one card of another type. Up to 790 (Eight stacks of 99) cards of a particular type may be traded at once.

Kyou's Scale icon.png Scales

  • Scales are used to upgrade the +2 versions of armor into Reforged Artifact Armor +3.
  • Unlike cards a scale may be obtained regardless of job.
  • 1-2 scales always drop for a fifth floor boss. See the Rewards page for specifics.
The elusive bonus floor.

Armor Box icon.png Random Bonus Floor

There appears to be a small chance that warping up from either floor 3 or 5 will lead you to a floor filled with several treasure chests in a circle.
The conditions to trigger these floors are not entirely clear, but:

  • A different trigger causes a "open 1 chest" red chest floor.

Potential rewards confirmed from these chests are job cards, a Mystical canteen entry KI, gil and armor/accessory drops from Omen.
It is unclear whether specific drops come from specific chest floors and how to trigger the individual types of chest floors.

The King's boss floor.

Nisroch Jerkin icon.png Boss Rewards

Rewards from the various bosses are obtained as spoils in the party Treasure Pool when the boss has been vanquished.
