The Royal City of Rabanastre is a level 70 raid in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. It is the first part of the Return to Ivalice storyline, released in patch 4.1, The Legend Returns.


Located in the Dalmasca Desert, the Royal City of Rabanastre was previously the capital of the Kingdom of Dalmasca before it was annexed by the Garlean Empire at around the same time as Doma. Like Doma, Rabanastre revolted several times, leading to a brutal repression from the Empire and its abandon by its residents.

Seeking to light the truth on the event of the legendary War of the Lions, Jenomis cen Lexentale, a famous Garlean playwright, disappeared while leading an archaeological expedition to the ruins of the city, which he believed was built on top of the legendary Lesalia. Following an unsuccessful rescue attempt by his son Ramza, the Warrior of Light is asked by his daughter Alma to brave the mysterious beings that have overrun the city and shed light on what happened to Jenomis.
