Crystal Tower was the very first raid-like instance in Final Fantasy XIV. Coil of Bahamut was not really raid-like for me way back because it was just like a dungeon but double the number of people inside. Honestly, it was just like the Primal fights but of course, was more difficult. However, this fight brought new light to my eyes as the number of people fighting in one fight grew twice or thrice therefore, also the action! Here we have some of the quests that involve Crystal Tower and the rewards and unlocks when you do them.
