Odin, one of the most recognized symbols of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion, a favorite avatar amongst summoners, and, perhaps most famously, the final challenge for those who faced the perils of the Hazhalm Testing Grounds for the Einherjar battle system. Sadly, as with many other enemies, the one difficult trials of Odin's Chamber are no more. However, to offer a new way for adventurers to test their mettle against a powerful, but familiar opponent, a level 99 version of the Odin's Chamber battle will soon be added.
New key items, the Valkyrie's Tear, Wing, and Soul, which are required to enter this new battlefield, will be available through purchase via therion ichor, or through trading of feathers from the older chambers.
Let us know what you think on this new addition to Einherjar over on the ZAM forums!
From the official Final Fantasy XI forums:
