With this new update, we are given Yilbegan, Orcus, Verthandi, Lord Ruthven, Blobdingnag, and Krabkatoa.

These new NM's are called Voidwalkers, as they are NM's from another dimension (Abyssea). These NM's can be pulled into the present by having specific items in your possession and using the items as a compass to draw them into our world. In order to do so visit Assai Nybaem in Ru'Lude Gardens. he will give you information on these new NM's. Be warned, it will require you to hand over gil for the items needed to pull these NM's into our world to fight them.

My prediction is 30 000 gil per pop. The new Limbus. (72 hour cool down, because SE doesn't know how to make 70 hour cool downs)

Could the giant clot be BLOBdingnag? Oh gee, I wonder.

At least so far it seems like they still stayed away from the old HNM setup, which I am very happy about. Sitting in the Aery for 3 hours a day is something I don't want to ever do again.

For some idea what these NM may look like:

Yilbegan
Verthandi
Lord Ruthven
Blobdingnag - the giant slime we saw at Vanafest
Krabkatoa - the giant crab we saw at Vanafest
Orcus - could be anything, maybe this.

Voidwalkers? Not to stir anything up, but a Voidwalker is a summon in a certain game run by a certain company that is also a spell cast by Shiva or a BLM

given the names of the rings, that makes sense.

(shameless wiki summarizing)

Yilbegan:

Zilant Ring:
Like Yilbegan, a type of dragon-esque creature. Yilbegan is Siberian, Zilant is Slavic, both are Russian)

Orcus:

Corneus Ring:
only thing I can find for Corneus is a type of freshwater snail, Planorbarius corneus, or Great Ramshorn. Given that Orcus is the origin of daemons, and daemons, demons, and orcs, are all typically represented as having horns, I guess. ??

Verthandi:
Note: That's a voiced "th", for those who are curious, like in that or those

Galdr Ring
An Old Norse word for a spell or incantation

Veela Ring:
a Veela is the Slavic version of a Nymph

This could be either or both; Verthandi is basically part of the Norse version of the "Fates". Unless Verthandi is a different NM, and the fairy NM has a different name, meaning that there's a 7th NM hiding in the .dats somewhere, this is where the Voidwalker <-> rings theory gets botched up

Lord Ruthven:

Strigoi Ring:
Romanian, Troubled spirits of the dead, which are generally associated with zombies and vampires

Blobdingnag:
Brobdingnag, the subject of the second part of Johnathan Swift's novel, Gulliver's Travels, is a land full of proportionally giant life. (Giant Clot. Horrible pun, SE, just horrible. Krabkatoa is funny, but this is just groan-worthy)

Blobnag Ring:
Blobdingnag


Krabkatoa:

Karka Ring:
Karka is Sanskrit for "lobster" or "crab", which had some role in naming Krakatoa.

Also, I would like to state now; as awesome as Krabkatoa is, his father, Bubbly Bernie is still more amazing.

Mythology didn't exist until "Clash of the Titans" invents it next week.

These new NMs come from the void.

In WoW, Warlocks summon voidwalkers.

There is only one logical explanation for all of this... Exdeath!
