    I wish they'd stop treating the community like idiots. It's an emote...

    They already ban people for spamming and misusing emotes, anyway.

    While I definitely agree with you, FF14 has easily the most fragile MMO community and Yoshida is all about making everyone comfortable with the game.

    • Looks like Garlemald invades Thanalan and is responsible for burning the Amal'Jaa village. Perhaps the Empire sent troops to defend the towers? How on earth did Garlean forces break past the Alliance forces that were holding the line at the Ghimlyt Dark, let alone penetrate that deep into Eorzea?
    • Fordola comes back, is seen helping fight an Ifrit summon
    • Tiamat is freed from her prison, fights Lunar Bahamut. Also, other dragons help out.
    • Cuchulainn auracite summon in Bozja.

    Also, looks like there are a lot of weapons in what appears to be the Garlemald Imperial Palace? Did adventurers/resistance heroes try raiding the palace to kill Zenos? He is seen picking up another katana, which I think might be misleading, as I can't see Zenos throwing away the magic Kami sword that Yotusuyu gifted Zenos for a shoddier katana, so I'm assuming he's just picking up that katana to look at it before dropping it and then picking up his real weapon.

    Looks like the G-Warrior has been strapped to the front of Cid's airship. Hm... not sure what that is for. The G-warrior was capable of seemingly limited flight, able to hover over the water. If it wasn't capable of flying, I think Cid could have created a full blown aero booster for it or something. But strapping it to the front of an airship way bigger than the G-Warrior itself? I don't see the G-Warrior being capable of combat then, but I can't think of any powers unique to the G-Warrior that would be useful to the people on the airship, like a shield or something.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, Cid's airship doesn't really look like a useful airship. Looks like a flying platform, like the platform the Limsans jury rigged together for the sole purpose of fighting Leviathan, but this time to fight Diamond Weapon? Guess it won't really have any use after this then.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Lol I just noticed that the G-Warrior has a sawblade and a drill.

    Uh... how is this going to work? Is the Diamond Weapon just going to conveniently fly in front of the G-Warrior and allow himself to be sawed by that little sawblade with limited reach? Or the Cloud Deck going to have ridiculous agility where the G-Warrior is flying and keeping up with the Diamond Weapon? Wouldn't the g-force throw people off the deck? IIRC there is no airship inertial dampener technology for people on the airships like in the Trails series.

    - - - Updated - - -

    They're showing footage of the Cloud Deck trial. Looks like the Diamond Weapon is so ludicrously agile it dodged an itano circus of missiles.

    I don't get it. Why can't the Diamond Weapon just smash the platform into pieces, sending the WoL and friends falling to their deaths?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ohhhh, does the platform split apart? That'd explain the prior screenshots of Diamond Weapon being in between two platforms of players.

    Y "That's why I was able to show the cut scenes, it doesn't actually contain any spoilers, but as soon as I pull, there will be huge spoilers"
    Sounds like if he pulled, a textbox would play. Maybe it'd reveal that Valens was piloting the weapon?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Spoiler: 

    Is that the ghost of Elidibus? I thought his soul was either broken up and went back to the lifestream, or was stuck in the Crystal Tower? Unless its the ghost of some other Ascian? Emet? Or is it a vision of Azem?

    What I find interesting is that from the trailer Lunar Ifrit isn't a boss of the dungeon, unless they made it a 4 boss dungeon which seems unlikely.

    That scene is very interesting. Those weapons don't even look like everyday toothpicks. Almost as if Zenos soloed a savage trial and every weapon dropped. Now he is rolling. And he definitely won't pick his final weapon till the second part of 5.5 which wil be after the digital fan fest.

    How certain are we that Ifrit and Ravana are Lunar primals here? As for how we fight him/her/it? Maybe as a solo duty. Or a trial? I'm fairly certain this includes scenes from the second half as well.

    Their coloring. They all have purple glowing parts like Lunar Bahamut. And if you watch the trailer you can see which are fought with trusts and which ones aren't.

    I'm 99% sure you are correct, but we can never be certain. All we know is that Ifrit is not the same from ARR. But everyone can summon Ifrit and it will always be different.

    EDIT:

    Sweet, baby Jesus it's not just Ifrit and Ravana. At 1:59 that is Odin. Maybe even Lunar Odin if that is possible. Versus Urianger and Thancred.

    I mean, he broke his old sword in 5.4, what's so misleading about it?

    Gaia?

    Unlikely perhaps because optional content, but it's possible.

    Whoever it is, they seem to have a lot of light. Gaia is the oracle of Darkness and she's also in the First while this scene is set in Mor Dhona.

    She mentioned the possibility of learning how to port to other worlds.

    I'd think you'd need an Ascian soul crystal to learn the darkness teleport ability (does that let you traverse the aetherial rift, though?). Then again, Zenos being able to use that ability with just the Resonant may imply that it's an ability tied to the Echo.

    I finished my RDM relic today...

    I think I'll work on DRK, next. Then NIN.

    Oh, are we updating on what we're doing with our characters?

    Well, my Miqo'te (main) is busy leveling Dragoon to lvl 60 so I can go in to Stormblood with a lvl 60 DPS class/job instead of a lvl 66 Red Mage.
    My Au Ra alt is working his way through the Crystal Tower raids so he can finish the Post ARR MSQ since Crystal Tower was made a requirement in 5.3

    Also going through Duties to farm the event currency to get one more mount on my main before the event ends. Though there's still time left before 5.5, there's just so much of the Main Scenario roulette I can take.

    Gaia is an Ascian reborn so she could have the ability to do so, just like any other Ascian

    Ifalna is taking it easy for now.
    First relic will be done today.

    I am occupied with Genshin Impact.

    He deliberately broke his sword to switch it for a better weapon. I doubt there is an even stronger magic katana chilling in the cupboard.

    Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil 8 will hopefully keep me busy in the downtime between FFXIV patches...

    I finished my MIN relic today. I kind of want to get the BTN one as well, since the gathering relics should last well into the next expansion.

    I only have CUL and ALC left, mats are already there just need to find the time to slap them together.
    Then I have all the Ishgard relics, except for the fishing rod. I seriously doubt I will bother with this one.
