Ruin Reawakened is an S-Rank hunt that you obtain after completing the Fire in the Sky Main Scenario. Instead of giving you a location to visit the S-Rank Hunts in Final Fantasy XVI instead only give you a text hint of where the Hunt might have been seen. In this guide we’ll show you when the Ruin Reawakened Hunt will appear, what the hint is, and where to find him in the world.
When do you receive the Ruin Reawakened Hunt?
You will first have the poster for the Ruin Reawakened Hunt appear on the Hunt Board after completing the Fire in the Sky Main Scenario. When you check the posting on the job board you’ll receive the following hint:
Sanbrequis legend tells of a dread dragon who set near half the realm alight with his torrid breath, before being sealed away behind a magical mist – by Greagor Herself, some sources claim. Though it has long been forgotten which parts of the tale are true and which are mere myth, recent reports of a great dragon’s roar reverberating around the woodland passes of the empire are real enough
The key clues to take away from this hint are that you’ll be facing a dragon, that it’s located in Sanbreque, and that it’s near woodlands somewhere
Ruin Reawakened Location
The closest waypoint to reach the Ruin Reawakened Hunt is by teleporting to Caer Norvent Glorious Gate. This is the teleport point south of Northreach. Once you land here head East to find a small path that turns and heads south through the forest and a region called Bleakmist. At the end of this path will mean an opening bordering water. Once you enter the arena you’ll see the dragon Svarog descend from the sky and battle will begin.
Svarog is a level 50 dragon that you’ll likely encounter as you’re ~10 levels below it but with well-timed dodges and efficient use of staggering Ruin Reawakened you should be able to defeat it even if you are that far below it in level.
For defeating Ruin Reawakened and completing this hunt you’ll earn the following rewards:
- 28750 EXP
- 300 AP
- 30000 Gil
- 60 Renown
- 1x Orichalcum
- 1x Fallen Enigma
- 1x Amber
- 1x Empty Shard
Orichalcum is an important material as it’s needed to craft the most powerful equipment in the game, the Gotterdammerung sword and the Ouroborus Belt and Vambraces.
