|"Vana'diel March", the Main Theme of Final Fantasy XI|
|Trouble with the audio sample?|
"Vana'diel March" can be heard playing on the title screen of the original version of Final Fantasy XI, as well as the Rise of the Zilart expansion. It is the second track of the first disc in the original soundtrack. In versions with the expansions Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urhgan or Wings of the Goddess installed, it will play after the new title screen track has played once.
"Vana'diel March" appears as a downloadable song in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, available in the Final Fantasy XI Music Pack. It comes with Ragnarok and Fighters of the Crystal, and the songs are unlocked to be used as battle music when the pack is purchased.
"Vana'diel March" appears as the opening theme of Final Fantasy XI during its Series Play. As the opening plays, the following text appears on the screen:
- "It all began with a stone, or so the legend says.
In ages past, a sentient jewel, enormous and
beautiful, banished the darkness.
Its many-colored light filled the world with life
and brought forth mighty gods.
Bathed in that light, the world entered an age of
bliss until, after a time, the gods fell into slumber.
That world was called Vana'diel."
In addition, the "Vana'diel March" may also be played as an FMS track in a Dark Note if the first number in the movement is an 8. This is the only way to play "Vana'diel March" as an FMS.
