This resplendent attire of striking white and black cloth ornamented with gold filigree was designed expressly to complement the abilities of a Bard. Once used by a great Hero of Abyssea, the true potential of this Empyrean armor was sealed but has now been partially released by completing the Trials of the Magians.

This is the +1, or HQ, version of this Empyrean armor set.

Set Summary


ἀοιδός {aoidos) is an ancient Greek word (genderless despite its masculine ending) for "singer" or "bard". It has been used without changing the ending to describe the sphinx and the muses. From ἀείδω (aeidô), to make a vocal sound, derivative: "to chant", "to sing", "to celebrate".
