    They have consistenly been serving two storylines at once though. The first stuff and the Garlemald stuff. They just didnt make half the zones of ShB in the source this time.
    So, i guess that is the part you want.

    I personally had no problem with SB though. SB and ShB are my favorite xpacs.

    Same here. We'll probably go to Sharlayan, consulting the other scientists trying to find a way to fix the Source of the Sound. There is also some character stuff that can be done, such as finally meeting the Leveilleur family, or some tie in with Louisox stuff.

    I expect we will go to Garlemald, but it will probably be more like an Ala Mhigo thing where it's mostly a dungeon as you try to hunt down Zenos.

    Heavensward was also split. In the base game, half of your time was spent dealing with the Ishgard plot, the other half was spent dealing with Ul'dah and the Scions and Garlemald. In the patches, half of your time was spent dealing with Ishgard, and the other half spent on the main story of the Scions and the Ascians and the WoDs.

    Same could be said for ARR. Half of your time was spent dealing with Primals and the Scions and the Ascians, the other half was spent dealing with Ul'dah.

    I'm guessing half of the expansion will be spent with the Scions and the Sharlayans trying to find a fix for the Sound before the end of the world hits, while the other half is spent dealing with Garlemald and Zenos.

    Considering 'Yojimbo' turned out to be just gregg and X is the only game we haven't got a major pull from i would not be surprised to see the sound turn out to be an analogue to Sin where you can't really kill it without someone involved becoming the next incarnation of it. Sure would put the breaks on "yet another noble self sacrifice" being the go to problem solver if that doesn't actually solve the problem this time around.

    I always get thrown off by patch day...

    Misjudged the launch time by an hour. Better to be early than late, though, I guess.

    I already own a personal house and a FC house so I won't be too upset if I can't upgrade the latter. My personal I'm keeping where it is - a medium in Mist right on the edge of the beach. My FC house is just a small plot in Lavender Beds, though. I'd like to upgrade that to a medium or large.

    Well, that worked out...

    I logged on after only ten other people in the queue before me. Picked out a random ward in Lavender Beds...ran to the first large plot that I saw and...upgraded my FC's small plot to a large one!

    Grats!

    I hit Play as soon as the button turned green but then my game crashed at loading. By the time I went through all the steps to relaunch everything I was 1000+ in queue. Didn't get in until 30 mins after and everything was gone. Good luck to those that got something.

    I got a house...but I unknowingly fucked over others...decided I wanted an different plot after buying one...no one was around still, so I went up and switched to the one next to me. Didn’t know it would start a lockout timer on the original plot. Honestly I feel awful, there’s a large group of people now camping the original plot and /shout and the official forums are filled with people complaining about this. Fuuuuck

    I've said it before and it bears repeating here. There is no greater "shelf moment" in gaming today than attempting to get a house in FFXIV.

  10. #49070
    didn't realize they uped the base price on houses. was short around 100k for the cheapest house due to auctions not selling.
    Guess I'll start saving up for when Ishgard is complete/released. If not then. Then I give up.

    They should just convert all apartments to small housing plots.

    Apartments are tooo small.

    They also need to re-enable housing demolish.

    Agreed. It made sense when COVID first began, but now it's just hindering active players from house buying.

    I liked the critical engagement against the FF7 scorpion mech. My favorite part was when it launched a missile barrage and you had to dodge AoEs for a minute. AoEs... everywhere!

    After that, we got to watch someone try to duel the Gabriel glider from Type-0. Lasted about a minute. The boss didn't seem too hard, but the player got knock backed into the ring of death that surrounds the arena and that was that. Maybe it has to be interrupted?

    So the PvE content for this patch is just FATEs?

    Yes, but the FATEs/skirmishes/critical engagements are actually fun and somewhat challenging, like dungeon boss battles. Lots of AoEs to engage your brain and they aren't undodgeable. Plus, you can equip Lost actions/items in your special slot (like the item you use the Lakshimi fight). For example, you can equip Lost Cure III, which allows you use a powerful AoE heal, or a Lost Phoenix Down that lets you insta rez people during combat. You're going to need those items because you can't zerg the Critical Engagements; once it starts no one can go in or out, so it's like a dungeon boss.

    Yeah I've played it already. The fate bosses are more involved. I hate lost actions because they are consumables and I'm not interested in farming crystals for RNG chance to get something fun that will be spent and I'll have to farm again. But overall was just asking if it was just FATEs what was added. The Relic quest just sends you to do FATEs as well.

    You can accept the quest to upgrade your relic weapon on a level 80 job, and then switch to a level 71-80 job and level up in Bozja. You will still get the relic quest items from the skirmishes and critical engagements. I leveled up my Ninja from 71 to 80 in half an hour. I also got 30 tomes of Allegory, so yeah I guess I can casually hang out here in Bozja over the week and level up my jobs and cap my allegory and get better weapons.

    Lost actions come in stacks of 99. I spam Lost Cure III during fights to heal up my party and I don't feel like I'm ever in danger of running out. If I somehow manage to use up all 99 stacks, I still have 3 more Lost Cure IIIs, so that's 300 more times I can spam it. And Lost Actions/Items drop like candy from the skirmishes and engagements. I have more actions and items that I can equip (you can have 6 equipped at a time).

    So if you equip an ability once it gives you 99 uses? Neat. I was suspicious they would be consumables so tested with a potion and it was a one use so assumed it would be the same for the abilities.
