In this weekly column, Jatobi takes a look at the world of FFXIV and the many things going on in the endless adventure.
The term WoW clone gets thrown around a lot, but does it mean what people think it means, or are they using it as a derogatory comment? Not only have I’ve seen it the past few weeks in the comments of this very column, I see it from my friends as well, and frankly it’s sad. Comments aside, at least we only have Six days left until Head Start!!
More and more recently I’ve seen posts from both new and prospective players asking similar questions; what makes the game so great? How long does it take? Is this game for me? To be completely honest, the answers are quite subjective to each person.
With just 33 days left until the launch of Shadowbringers, Square Enix has ramped up it’s hype train with a bunch of press events and videos showcasing the upcoming expansion and changes they have planned. It’s not even Summer, yet the things are heating up at a rapid pace in preparation for the looming expansion, the question is, however, are you ready?
Over the past week I have been busy working on my questline with Noctis, as well as farming MGP at the Gold Saucer to get the 200k MGP Regalia. Note that prior to this event I have truly never bothered with the Gold Saucer, I had my work cut out for me. Granted it wasn’t exactly hard to amass 200k MGP with the easy Fashion Report’s the last couple weeks but having to learn all the mechanics for Lord of Vermillion and Triple Triad was unique to say the least.
Things are heating up for me, and it’s not just the summer weather causing it! I’ve kept myself busy with a couple things, notably Snake EX, (Big shout out to my guild, pandemonium for allowing me to learn this fight!!!), and the FFXV crossover event. The real meat and potatoes of this week comes at the end of the writeup, so stick around until the end, it’s EPIC!
Hello again my awesome gamer friends, and welcome back to another edition of The Eorzea Prospect! I hope everything has been good with you over the past week, and the game is still holding your attention in these last couple of lag months! Only 79 more days until early access starts for Shadowbringers… HYPE!
Welcome back to another edition of The Eorzea Prospect! Last time we looked at the current state of the game, along with some questions that needed an answer from Tokyo Fan Fest. That time has come and gone, we’ve gained some insight on some things, while still speculate on others. Today we’ll touch shortly on gearing up for the expansion, and at the end get into the juicy details that were released at Tokyo Fan Fest over the weekend!
Welcome to my biweekly Final Fantasy XIV column! I think it’s been a while since we’ve had one of these for FFXIV. With a massive influx of new and returning players alike gearing up for the next expansion, Shadowbringers, it’s never been a better time. There’s an enormous amount of content coming soon for us to delve through, I hope you’ll join us on the adventure as we dive head first into all of it!
Another month, another FFXIV patch: 3.45 brings gifts including a new season of ranked PvP and the next part of the relic weapon quest chain. But the most significant addition is the update to Palace of the Dead, the “deep dungeon” that debuted a couple of patches ago. Previously limited to 50 floors, it now goes on for a whopping 200. But where exactly are we headed? “Hellsward,” the unlock screen declares, playing with the title of the last expansion.
