    Honestly? After the stunt they pulled with Ul'dah at the end of the previous expansion I suspect that the status quo won't change this time around either and they'll come up with some way to justify Nidhogg escaping or being replaced so that his minions will continue to be a thorn in the side of the Ishgardians. Or perhaps peace cannot be achieved for whatever reason and the status quo doesn't change because of that simple fact?

    I do hope that we redeem Estinien...though if we don't then I hope he kills multiple major characters before his fall!

    I think we'll actually settle the Dragonsong War. It's being resolved here mid-cycle.

    We have the Ascians and the Ala Mhigan resistance as the plot threads to pick up for the rest of Heavensward and into the next expansion. I wholeheartedly think we're heading to Ala Mhigo next.

    I agree with ya, Faroth. I don't think they'll pull the same stunt twice, don't think a lot of people really appreciated how they handled Ul'dah.

    Always liked that image.

    Yoshida definitely knew how to build up to and then conclude 1.0 with impressive...... (mega)flare.

    haha now FFXIV responded with "Don't worry we are prepared". See, it is all just for FUN.

    Do you know if there are some kinds a "free" trials for already existing accounts ? FFXIV endgame is not for me sadly but I really liked the universe and the dungeons and I want to test the new ones.

    cheers

    They've done a couple of free login weekends. I dunno if they're going to do another one anytime soon, as one just happened not too long ago. Other than that, no. :c

    Actually it is when you consider 3.3 will be the third patch for FF14 that has arrived in the same span that WoW has had all of 1 patch...

    The good thing about this mmo is theres always more things that arent just 'spend 14 months camping one raid instance for a small number of items and pay monthly for it.

    Personally me and my friends are wayyy more excited for the new deep dungeon than the new raid, its nice to have options that arent GET ON THE TREADMILL NERD.

    I noticed that translations are very weird in this game.
    I have EN audio and DE text and oftentimes the context doesn't match at all.

    Usually I just ignore the text and listen to the audio only.

    Sadly I didn't play the 1.x version. Only discovered this game a while after ARR launched due to a friend.
    Have to say that I really dig the ARR intro cinematic.

    I had no clue who the old elf was, but it was clear that he sacrificed himself for the ones he loved, using his last strength to teleport them out.
    Found it really heart breaking.

    Says a lot for a cinematic if they can make you care about characters you know nothing about.

    Also saw the "end of the world" on YT some time after that. Definitely creepy.

    In case anyone never saw it, here's the 1.0 opening cinematic. The Warrior of Light representative (some call Derplander) reaches all the way back to the original intro.




    Miqo'te: No job is too daunting so long as the coin is good.
    Elezen: Bah, you'd sell your own mother if the coin was good.
    Miqo'te: My father too! Now quiet down and help me decide.

    Heheheh

    In case you haven't seen this yet https://youtu.be/1xOOFCltZuc?t=5m29s that old elf still had quite a lot left in him. Spoilers if you haven't done the final coil of bahamut.

It plays like an ARPG, but is in a persistent world like an MMORPG. It's actually pretty fun so far.
    my brother and I messed around in Devilian, but once you get all your skills the game gets pretty boring. Think we made it to 42-44 or so before getting bored. The class diversity was pretty crappy too, There were only 4 classes and none of them particularly fit my favorite type of fantasy.

    I wanted to like speedblade/spellblade trees for the Warrior class, but the Marauder one was just so effective and played fluidly unlike the other two.

    If we go to Ala Mhigo like I think we will in 4.0, I wonder if he'll be a monk in the next trailer.

    He's been archer, warrior, and dragoon so far.


    Also, Susan Calloway might be at Fan Fest this year! (I asked her on Twitter. Response was they're planning something, announcement soon).

    Well, that's all the Deep Dungeons are, another, separate treadmill, NERD.

    I'm just messing around when bored so far, only like level 20. I gotta say though, the quest progression feels really fluid so far, which is nice.
