    There is absolutely no reason to believe he left a crystal behind with a fragment of soul that would exist PURELY to free us from the rift between worlds. That makes absolutely no sense.

    Azem was a known traveller of the world even pre-sundering, AND we know he has a fractured soul. It makes sense that his crystal would allow us to traverse the rift even presuming his crystal DIDN'T have a fragment of soul within it - And then it turns out it did, suggesting the soul within held some power over travel or the rift. Which further suggests Azem, and not Emet-Selch.

    Meanwhile, we have nothing tying the shade to Emet, other than a wave that... doesn't look like Emet's wave... so...
    Intentionally being obtuse? It wasn't Emet's self. It was a reconstruction built into the Azem crystal in case of emergency. Emet made the crystal, and it's clear he did that as a way to help get her out of a shit situation should she see to putting Elidibus out of his misery. Azem's crystal. Emet's recreation self.

    You could be right but that seems off compared to the other expansion titles. To be honest it sounds like something Dragon Quest related.

    Wasn't Shadowbringers called something else in JP? Something like "jet black villains" or something like that?

    Yes, JP's name for the expacs are usually colour based. "Azure Skies of Ishgard", "Crimson Liberators"/"Liberators of the Crimson Lotus" for HW and SB respectively.

    Also should note on Forspoken, Yoshi-P has flat out stated its not the name. Usually he's a bit cheeky/dances around stuff so a hard no like that means its likely not the name of the expac (should note incase people bring up "BUT he said he wasn't working on 16!", he said he wasn't *directing* it not that he wasn't working on it at all.)

    Eh, we'll see I suppose. Forspoken does fit the sort of pseudo-archaic language that the game likes to lean on though it's not the only Square Enix game to do so to date.

    At the same time, I take everything Yoshi-P says these days with a pinch of salt as he's been told by marketing to not reveal as much as he used to and he's said things won't happen only for them to actually happen anyway.

    Welp, seems that 6.0 assets have been leaked in the 5.4 build. Including the new 6.0 login screen.

    There goes my predictions lolol

    Well at least it seems like it will be a cool expansion anyway.

    EDIT: seems like the login screen is fake but the other assets are real

    I've seen a few people claiming that there's leaked garlean city, but the video i saw was of stuff that's been in since 5.0 so *shrug*

    Geomancer and Beastmaster would be appealing jobs for me personally. As a former WoW player, I did like Elemental Shaman and BM Hunter a lot.

    If the Beastmaster was melee and had a tanky pet (more than a defensive Chocobo but less than an actual tank job), that'd be alright.

    The Geomancer should make use of the elemental powers and combinations thereof (lava, steam, sand, etc). Maybe have an ability to transmute the ground into something useful for the Geomancer and/or his/her party.

    Yeah, i tried to search for leaked stuff and found nothing but that video, which is unimpressive cause we saw the city in cinematics and that is what it is. Just an asset.

    I am very curious to see what they come up with. If it's just a garlean continent i would be disappointed. I like it when they blindside us like shadowbringers. I would love a time travel to the end days and to meet the peoples and the actual reason for the end days. Also, to reveal the roots of the twists wecame to find out.


    As for jobs, i really am hoping for a Chemist battle job. Based on FFT and X-2. With a musket as weapon to shoot concotions from. Healer ofc.

    For dps job, my preference would go first to make Blue mage a normal job. After that Geomancer is a good one. I liked the Necromancer on one of the latest dungeons.
    Beastmaster worries me. Pet AI's are always a problem.

    If it's a time travel expansion, it really needs time mage somehow though.

    Next part of Bozja is almost here!

    Spoiler: 

    I hope that we manage to save the Resistance members who were tempered. Except for Isolde. I hope she dies. I don't want to have to listen to her for ANOTHER zone *shivers*


    - - - Updated - - -

    5.45 patch notes are out.

    Lol in order to do the 48 man savage, you must be at least Resistance Rank 15 AND have at least 700,000 mettle.

    Oh, and you lose mettle when you die inside the instance.

    Just a reminder: you get a max of 3,000 mettle per critical engagement in the top part of Bozjan South. So... yeah. Prepare to slave away your soul.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Slaving away your soul, or the normal 24 man gives way more mettle than anything you can do in Bozja South. We'll see.

    i already said this in my fc discord but i have no idea why the F SE thinks this kind of content is what the players want....

    lets make a mind numbing un-interesting zone where you grind away for hours and if you die just once then you lose progress...and lets make it necessary for a raid that pugs 80% wont be able to clear it and also have a huge requirement for it while also each death fucking over your progress...

    Well, they don’t want to do dungeons and raids in an MMO, which is why Bozja exists, so they shouldn’t be listened to in the first place.

    5 minutes into the new Bozja story

    Spoiler: 
    fuck Misija! She tempered that guy and then ordered him to kill his comrades for the lolz!

    ... Ofcourse Lyon just KNOWS we are around the corner. My gosh

    Wait, is he joining us? JOIN US LYON!



    Um... it sounds like a fully summoned Queen Gunhildr would be Primal Bahamut/Koryu levels of strong. We've never beaten a being that strong before. Primal Bahamut was considerably weakened in coils and we needed the aid of a similarly powerful primal, Phoenix, to beat him. Koryu was straight up too powerful to beat so we just sealed him away (using the power of the other Auspices). Nothing we threw at Emet-Selch hurt him; we needed an entire planet's worth of light energy to kill him.

    So if the full might of Save the Queen is brought out, and we don't have any aid like what was listed above, well... we're screwed.

    Awww, I thought it was Radovan who had come, but no it's just some new Hrothgar.

    Just beat the last boss.

    The raid does not give any mettle whatsoever.

    first boss gives 3 bozjan silver coins (not the same as the regular Bozjan coins you've been farming before)
    second boss 1 coin
    third boss 3 coins
    4th boss 1 coin
    5th boss 3 coins
    last boss 9 coins

    - - - Updated - - -

    5.45 Bozja story finished

    Spoiler: 

    Welp, I'm glad I got to stab Isolde in the face. Never again will I have to listen to her yelping!

    Looks like the FFXII Ifrit is no canon in XIV. I wonder if Gabranth is on it.

    Welp, we have... what? One patch left to resolve the Bozja story in 5.5 or 5.55? How are they going to defend Gangos, retake Bozja South, and capture Castrum Lacus Latorie in just one patch? Nevermind pushing into another zone!

    For the next stage of your weapon, you get Loathsome memories from Bozja critical engagements, or from running the Crystal Tower raids.

    Is the new weapon out now?
    What Itemlevel does it have?

    And can you provide the weapon name? I'd like to see if it's worth for transmogs.

    The latest relic weapon upgrade is 5 ilevels behind the latest savage weapon. The latest savage gives out ilevel 535 weapons, so I'd imagine that the new relic weapon upgrades would be 530. EDIT: datamining says it might be 510 and 515, not sure.

    I just finished Sycrus Tower and got only one Loathsome fragment at the end. Doing critical engagements is a far, far better time investment.

    A Crystal Tower raid run takes about 20 minutes.

    A CE only takes about 2-3 minutes. Sure, they might spawn once every 10-20 minutes, but you can spend that time alt tabbed out of FFXIV and browsing the web. So you only have to actually pay attention and play the game for 2-3 minutes to get your fragment. Beats spending 20 minutes playing the game to get one. Also CEs give you mettle, which you need anyway.

    Thanks.

    So without doing that new shitty zone:
    I have to grind fates in HW zones for the first step and then Crystal Tower?
    Or what was is again?

    Kinda wonder why they look so different from the old model - I skipped the Relic weapon because it looked like it would be another glowy nonsense (nonsense as in "I can't evne make out the shape of the weapon anymore) like the Stormblood one.


    Oh man... I don't have time for this shit, why are japanese developers always so weird when it comes to that stuff.

    Stage 1: you need 20 blue memories, 20 yellow, and 20 red.

    You can either get them from a very low chance of dropping from any non-FATE mob killing mobs in Bozja, or from doing FATEs in Heavensward zones. If you want your relic RIGHT NOW, then farm FATEs in HW zones and you'll have all of the memories you need in under an hour. HOWEVER, Bozja pans out to getting more stuff in the long term if you farm the memories as a part of a cluster farm. That way you will earn hairstyles, minions, and mounts while you are at it.

    • Yellow (tortured) from FATEs in Coerthas Western Highlands and Sea of Clouds (or non-FATE mobs in Bozja South/bottom)
    • Blue (sorrowful) from FATEs in Dravanian Forelands and Churning Mists (or non-FATE mobs in Bozja middle)
    • Red (harrowing) from FATEs in Dravanian Hinterlands and Azys Lla (or non-FATE mobs in Bozja North/top)



    Stage 2: You need 6 green memories (bitter). You get them from a low chance to drop from Bozja Skirmishes, or doing leveling roulette, or doing Heavensward dungeons. The fastest way to get them is to run the Anti-Tower unsynced, which you can complete in under 10 minutes, so check your party finder for that. Blue Mages do a HUMONGOUS amount of DPS and make it go even faster. You will have your 6 green memories within an hour. However, doing Bozja skirmishes will get you more stuff in the long term, as you will earn mettle by doing so, which you need anyway.



    Stage 3: Grey memories (Loathsome): you need 15. You get 1 grey memory from completing a Crystal Tower raid, or there is a chance for one to drop from a Critical Engagement in Bozja. Doing the CEs is far and away more time efficient and rewarding.



    Stage 4: drops from Stormblood FATEs, or from the new Bozja raid. No word on the droprate from the Bozja raid yet.

    - - - Updated - - -

    You can't get to stage 3 without completing the new Bozja raid, which requires completion of Castrum, which requires that you farm enough mettle to reach rank Resistance rank 10. So you won't be able to get the new glowing weapons shown in the album above without spending a lot of time in Bozja doing skirmishes and CEs to farm mettle. You can only get to stage 2 avoiding that stuff.
