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.
Similarly to Seal Rock, players must collect data from Allagan Tomeliths and obtain a set amount of 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 three different methods:
- Occupying Allagan Tomeliths
- Destroying Icebound Tomeliths
- Defeating enemy players
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.
Occupying Allagan Tomeliths
Players will find large structures known as Allagan Tomeliths all over the map. By standing within proximity of the Tomeliths, players will be able to extract the data within, increasing their data accumulation.
Active and Inactive Tomeliths
Tomeliths will be either "occupied" or "unoccupied", based on whether an alliance has claimed it. If a tomelith is occupied and opposing players attempt to access it, the tomelith will become "unoccupied" and the other teams will be able to attempt to claim it.
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 will activate at random after a set amount of time. Icebound tomeliths that have been destroyed will not reactivate. As time passes, more icebound tomeliths will activate, and the order in which they do so differs in every campaign. in some cases, several tomeliths may activate at the beginning of the campaign, while in others, they will activate at a steady pace. regardless of the timing and frequency, all tomeliths on the map will be active 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.
