The Glabados Ruins are a forgotten temple located on the Glabados area on mainland Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. It is here where the game begins, as well as where the tutorial appears.


The Cache of Glabados

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

After the first two missions of the game, Vaan, Penelo, Balthier, and Fran approach a dais in the inner sanctum of the Ruins. Here, two small crystals, one green and one purple, are perched on a scale-like altar. After a mock battle for the crystals, Balthier throws the green stone to Vaan as a welcoming present to the career of sky pirating. Once Balthier takes the purple crystal, the temple begins to shake, and debris rains from the ceiling. The four barely manage to escape the Glabados Ruins for their two airships outside, but Vaan's machine falls into the abyss as the ground underneath it gives way. Vaan and Penelo make a lunge for the closing stairway of the Strahl, and are just able to grab hold of Balthier's airship as it takes off into the sky.
