The Binding Coil of Bahamut - Turn 1, located in the Upper Aetheroacoustic Exploratory Site and known by players as T1, is the first turn of the Binding Coil of Bahamut raid in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
Situated upon Vylbrand, Castrum Occidens is more akin to a research facility than a fortress. Even before its pillar was driven into the ground, Legatus Gaius van Baelsar had ordered his people to probe the fragment of Dalamud which fell at that precise location. The impact resulted in the creation of vast caverns pervaded by corrupted crystals. Though unknown dangers lie in wait within, you must brave them all if you are to learn the truth of the Calamity.
—In-game Description

During the Battle of Carteneau, a fragment of Dalamud landed in Eastern La Noscea, creating a crystalline cave over which the XIVth Imperial Legion built Castrum Occidens. The Garlean Empire sent forces into the labyrinth in search of the Allagan technology encased within Dalamud.

Alisaie Leveilleur and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn send an expedition of their own into the coil, hoping to get to the Allagan weaponry before the Garleans can and unearth the truth behind the Seventh Umbral Era and the death of Louisoix Leveilleur. However, 237 yalms below the surface, they meet resistance from Allagan biotech that is still live, thousands of years after the fall of their Empire.

Spoilers end here.

Objectives Edit

  1. Gain access to the Exploratory Site: 0/1
  2. Breach the aetherial fields: 0/2
  3. Defeat Caduceus: 0/1

Progression Edit

Meteor fissure Edit

After witnessing a cutscene, the party descends down a Garlean-built staircase into a side cave guarded by the ADS mid-boss. Throughout the fight, it will use High Voltage to paralyze the party, making it recommended to Silence the attack. During the battle, smaller Attack Nodes will appear from behind and should be dealt with by an off-tank. If not destroyed swiftly, ADS will begin casting Object199, dealing heavy damage to the raid.

Aetheroacoustic Exploratory Site Edit

The party must venture through trash packs to clear the exploratory site. However, one cannot simply sac pull all of the enemies, because two Aetherial Fields are gated by the deaths of Dark Matter Golems which must be killed normally. The Dark Matter Golems have access to a powerful attack called Obliterate but are otherwise harmless.

Allagan megastructure Edit

The party fights Caduceus on this honeycomb-like structure. The Caduceus progressively gains an attack boost, but this can countered by bringing Dark Matter Slimes to it; Slimes spawn when players step on glowing honeycombs, and this should be avoided whenever the boss does not have too many stacks. At 60% health, it splits into two snakes, each having half the remaining health. Both must be slain quickly to avoid being overwhelmed by the remaining snake.
