Soon you'll be able to face off with the enigmatic giant robot cathedral that is the Final Fantasy franchise's Alexander. Joe Juba penned a riveting piece exploring the history of this summon, but now we'll actually be squaring off against it (and, if the preview is any indicator, inside it) this week with a Heavensward content update.

This is the first significant content update since Heavensward's launch. The battle will be an 8-person ordeal for level 60 characters (and I would expect some kind of pretty hefty gear requirements), and is not a 24-person "raid raid"(we can expect that a bit further down the line, but not too far away).

I'm fairly excited to square off against this boss and I do hope he drops a Triple Triad card! Check out the video for a preview of the encounter.
