The Final Fantasy XIV's site has been updated with a small preview of one of the three towering pillars, named Sephirot. Sephirot will require a part of eight players to defeat and is available in normal and extreme difficulty.

Brought into being for the sole purpose of repelling the Allagan invasion, Sephirot inflicted ruinous losses upon the imperial army before finally being subdued and imprisoned in the central facility of Azys Lla. And now, millennia later, this immensely powerful entity threatens to awaken, his vengeful dreams disturbed by the careless ambitions of Archbishop Thordan VII.

General : The Syndicate Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

Posted Feb 06, 2016 by Catherine Daro

Online gaming community The Syndicate is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Calling itself "the most successful online gaming community in online gaming", the guild holds a Guinness World Record for the longest continiously operating online guild. In addition, there have been two books published about The Syndicate and much, much more.

  • We have achieved a retention rate of over 99%.  That means that hardly anyone ever quits The Syndicate (or gets kicked out) because they don't want to be part of the community anymore.  We certainly have people who go inactive because their life pulls them away from gaming but its very rare we have a drama infused implosion of someone or an angry person who quits to join another guild.
  • Over 80,000,000 guilds have been created... and have failed... since The Syndicate was first created.  Since no other guild has achieved what we have, that means there is about a 1 in 80,000,000 chance of recreating The Syndicate by someone else.  In the United States, you have about a 1 in 1.2 million chance of being struck by lightning this year.  So you are 66.66 times more likely to be struck by lightning than you are to recreate The Syndicate's level of success.

You can find out more about The Syndicate by visiting its official site.

Dragon Nest : EU Servers Suffer Catastrophic Technical Failure, Data Lost

Posted Feb 06, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Dragon Nest EU servers suffered a severe technical failure in late January with servers only just now coming back online. As a result of the issue, most in-game data was lost including titles, missions, quests, achievements, guild points, inventory and storage items and more.

In the reimbursement package, players will have all characters on account automatically boosted to level 80 with all mandatory quests and missions already completed. Gold will be provided to purchase skills and each character will receive a level up reward box that includes legendary level 70 equipment materials and epic level 80 equipment upgraded to +10.

Cash Shop items will not be replaced, but players will be compensated any currency used in the past several months. Any items purchased prior to November 2015 will be re-sent to player accounts.

By way of compensation, players will receive a laundry list of items including mounts, pets, talismans, pouches and more. Inventory and storage will be fully unlocked and every account will receive 5000 DNP. Lastly, each account will receive a nice package of cash items for free.

From now through March 2nd, players will also enjoy a +200% drop rate increase and players will receive two Big Blessing Point Potions each day with Nests resetting every Wednesday to facilitate farming.

Crowfall : Devs Looking for Feedback on Latest FAQ Focused on Skills

Posted Feb 05, 2016 by Suzie Ford

The latest and very comprehensive FAQ has appeared on the Crowfall site that aims to give fans a more detailed look at skills and how they progress for characters throughout the game. Developers are also looking forward to the discussion that the FAQ will generate as well.

Topics in the FAQ include:

  • What is a skill?
  • What types of skills are there?
  • How do skills advance?
  • How many skills can I train?
  • How many skills in Crowfall?
  • How are skills organized

10. WHAT KINDS OF SKILL TREES ARE THERE?
Skill trees are divided into two main categories: general and archetype.

General skills are further subdivided into three major gameplay activities:   combat, crafting and exploration.

The skills contained in each tree are what you might expect to find. Skills that are useful across every archetype, weapons and armor skills in the combat trees, crafting skills in the crafting trees and gameplay actions as stealth, harvesting and animal husbandry in the exploration trees.

Archetype skill trees contain specific skills related to each archetype and their promotion classes. Each archetype has a dedicated skill tree, and three promotion class dependent trees that allow further class specialization.

These are just a few of the questions presented on the Crowfall site. Head on over to check out the rest along with the detailed developer answers.
