Final Fantasy 14 Patch 5.5 introduces the final level of the Nier Raid, Tour à Paradigm’s Breach, ending Yoko Taro's story. It shouldn't take you long to unlock the final 24-man raid, but you'll need to clear out any side quests you left unattended at the end of the puppet bunker.
Complete To Make Amends to access the Nier raid tower at Paradigm's Breach in Final Fantasy 14.
To unlock the quest chain that leads to the new Nier Raid, the Tower Within Paradigm's Reach, you must first complete the post-puppet bunker quest To Make Amends. Konogg is found at Komra in Kholusia (X: 33,8, Y: 18,0); speak with the dwarf to start making amends.
After completing this quest, the dig site leader in Komra will have the first Tower quest in Paradigm's Breach available for pickup. Speak with them to start Konogg, alone, which will lead to the Brave New World quest. From there, you'll gain access to the final and final Nier raid in Final Fantasy 14, but that won't conclude the YoRHa: Dark Apocolypse story - not entirely.
After completing the raid and a few follow-up quests, you'll unlock a short series of weekly quests that wrap up Nier's story after the tower in Paradigm's Breach. Complete the first to unlock the second the following week, then eliminate this one for the third and final quest.
In Update 5.5, you can only loot one piece of gear per week in Tower at Paradigm's Breach. This is similar to previous 24-man raid tiers, and Nier raids were no different. It doesn't matter if you need or greed, or if the loot is for your work or not: you get one item per week. Cosmetic and vanity items like Orchestrion scrolls and pets do not count against this limit. Additionally, you will earn two Cracked Stellaclusters and one Breach Coin per week upon completion of the raid.
You will need to be at least Item Level 495 to participate in the latest Nier Raid in Final Fantasy XIV, so you may need to catch up on your gear. The good news is that Eden's Promise no longer has its weekly loot restriction, so you can farm it alongside Tomestone Gear Grinding if you're yet to reach item level 495.
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is out now on PC and PlayStation 4, and the official version for PlayStation 5 is currently in beta.
