Footfalls of the Past

There is a short cutscene that takes place as your team arrives at the Ridorana Cataract for the first time. Make sure that you set up a Libra Gambit for your travels through this location as it is loaded with traps. That said, this is a fairly small zone that is a precursor to the much larger dungeon coming up – the Pharos. You can use the anchor in the ground near the edge of the cliff to return to the Strahl at any time. Travel east and use the Save Crystal.

The fastest way to reach the Pharos and continue the game is to head north. To fully complete the area though, heads southeast into the next zone to enter the Colosseum.
