What Is Limbus

Limbus is an ethereal region, much like Promyvion in appearance, accessed via Al'Taieu - Al'Taieu is otherwise known as 'Sea'. Players progress up floors of varying enemy types, opening chests containing AF upgrade items, Ancient Beastcoins, time extensions and chests that will restore HP/MP including abilities (this includes your 2 hour).

Gaining Access to Limbus

To enter Limbus, you must have access to Al'Taieu which is granted when you progress to chapter 8 in the Chains of Promathia story line.

Also, you will need two temporary key items:

  • Cosmo Cleanse - purchased from Sagheera for 15,000 gil; she can be found in in Port Jeuno at (I-8).
  • Key Card - dropped off of an Aw'euvhi mob located in Al'Taieu. A different type of key card is required to access the different zones of Limbus. As northern Al'Taieu is broken up into 3 regions, you must kill an Aw'euvhi within that region to gain the key required to enter your desired Limbus zone. More information is below regarding key cards and associated Limbus zones.
