This page contains detailed information and strategy about the high-end Duty "The Omega Protocol (Ultimate)", commonly abbreviated as TOP.


Introduction to The Omega Protocol (Ultimate)

Announced on December 23rd, 2022 during Live Letter 75, The Omega Protocol is the fifth Ultimate to be released in Final Fantasy XIV. This encounter was released shortly after the launch of Patch 6.3, God's Revel, Lands Tremble, on January 24th, 2023.


Encounter Unlock and Other Information

The fight centers solely around Omega, an ancient weapon known for it's inter-dimensional travel.

You can unlock The Omega Protocol Ultimate after completing Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage). Speak with the Wandering Minstrel in Old Sharlayan (X:12.7 Y:14.2) as a level 90 Disciple of War or Magic to gain entrance to the fight.

The minimum ilvl to enter this fight is i630, but can be bypassed with a full party. The encounter will also sync all gear down to i635 if it happens to be above that threshold. This won't be a concern until new gear is released with Patch 6.4. Upon completion of the duty, players can expect to receive a unique title, an Omega Totem Icon Omega Totem that allows you to redeem a single Ultimate weapon specific to the fight, as well as Adventure Plate decorations.
