Under the influence of the lesser moon Dalamud, Nael van Darnus, legatus of the VIIth Legion, sought out and unearthed Allagan ruins in the eastern lowlands of Coerthas. Aided by the knowledge contained therein, he raised the very earth unto the heavens, and from this lofty perch did the White Raven nearly orchestrate the destruction of Eorzea.

The remnants of that mad plan still litter the frozen lowlands, as well as other ancient artifacts now laid bare. Though the powers that be are in agreement that Nael's data must be secured, they remain divided on the subject of how best to administer the region, which has prompted them to invoke the same laws which transformed Carteneau and Seal Rock into a battlefield. Where words fail, weapons speak.

— In-game description

The Fields of Glory (Shatter) is a level 30 PvP duty introduced in patch 3.3 with Heavensward.

Victory Conditions

Similarly to Seal Rock, players must collect data from Allagan Tomeliths and obtain a set amount of 1,600 data in order to be declared the winner, with the remaining alliances being ranked based on the amount of data they collected.

Data is collected in two different methods:

  • Destroying Icebound Tomeliths
  • Defeating enemy players (+8 data)

In the event that none of the three alliances manage to accumulate the requisite amount of data before time runs out, victory is awarded based on which alliance gathered the most data.

Icebound Tomeliths

Active icebound tomeliths will be either large or small, with large tomeliths containing more data.

Activating Icebound Tomeliths

Icebound tomeliths can only be destroyed once they have become active. They will be inactive at the start of the campaign, and after approximately 30 seconds have elapsed, a random set of small tomeliths and one large tomelith will activate. Icebound tomeliths that have been destroyed will reactivate after a fixed period of time. As time passes, more icebound tomeliths will activate, and the order in which they do so differs in every campaign. Regardless of the timing and frequency, all tomeliths on the map will have activated at least once by the end of the campaign.

Destroying Icebound Tomeliths

The data from icebound tomeliths can be collected by attacking them, and once they are destroyed, data will be rewarded to each alliance based on the amount of damage inflicted. These rewards max out at 50 for a small tomelith and 250 for a large tomelith.
