    If you whisper the PF leader they might be cool with bringing a level 70 or two along, just cause the fights are so outscaled at this point.

    I'm sure most of ya'll have gotten the email if you didn't already have it in your calendars, but the virtual fanfest where it is presumed (but also, totally for sure) that the next expansion is announced, is going to be streamed this Friday, 5:30PST

    The thing I read before said that just the announcement portion would be translated live, and the rest would not be; but the email just says live interpretation would be provided for the broadcast, so I dunno!

    Of course it's scheduled smack during my families normal weekly movie night. :rotate: I guess I don't have to watch it live, but I was hoping to! I wonder if the stream will be easy to find after, does SE usually put these up and/or just leave the live stream there on youtube?

    Yoshi-P told us to have our expectations high, so here's where mine are at:

    Not only do they announce 6.0, they also announce 14-2.

    Well, in that case, I'm going to go with 6.0 incorporates FFXI into FFXIV! :D

    I could see a WoW Cataclysm style rebuild of the ARR zones so they're bigger and better, with swimming, more of a cohesive open world feeling (flying in cities? Or, at the very least, a single zone), and other goodies.

    The problem is they're currently limited by the PS4. I can see them dropping support for it, but not until 7.0 at the earliest.

    Here's my wild guess: They announce the 24-man raid that will be part of 6.X, and it'll be based off of Secret of Mana.

    If it doesn't have the most gorgeous scenery in the game I will be sorely disappointed. Even the shit Mana games have great art.

    I remember when I got SoM for the virtual console and started it up. I remember thinking that the graphics still held up pretty well after all these years.

    Patch notes are up: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/a65cab900e97855414cd1acab0a2070ed1b8e41b

    Looks like they learned their lesson re: Bozja. The final step in the relic weapon requires 78,000 mettle, completion of Castrum, and I believe completion of the new raid. Access to savage mode requires accumulating a total of 700,000(!) mettle. Here's hoping Bozja isn't dead within a week like before.

    78k mettle per relic, or you just have to be that high to start it? If 700k is the requirement for savage, stuff must award a ton more than the stuff that was already there.

    Anyway, here's yoship and soken being a hype train.

    And a SoM 24m would be amazing.



    I'd also be happy with just a mana series of 24m raids for the whole thing. Or maybe I just want Legend of Mana to get more love because it's severely underrated. I wish they'd redo that one, not in 3D or anything like SD3, just the same game in HD. Maybe tighten up combat a smidge.

    At rank 15 you get 6k mettle per fate and even more for bossfights. 70k doesn't sound that bad.

    Lordy is Delubrum Reginae some proverbial shit.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Personally I like it, but it should be just a regular alliance raid without any of the bullshit Bozja stuff. Same for Lactose Licorice.

    The entire Bozja storyline is so lame I can't bring myself to care about it. It's the only part of the game where I just skip everything.
    I hope every character involved in it dies and I never have to see them again
    edit: the newest story bits were'nt the worst thing ever. but they still havent won me over

    I'd like the new bozja dungeon's fights a lot if they were in the context of a regular alliance raid and not with all the dumb ff11 throwback shit tacked on like losing experience every death and no alliance party UI.

    Did my second run of the thing for the weekly, boy do you die a lot less often when you've seen the mechanics of the fight.

    Ok, so getting back into this game after a bit over a year, is there still a guild for PA folks? Is it still on Goblin?

    Edit: I see Sargantas is the place to be now, huh? Neat.

    Mrs. Enc and I have joined the realm, characters:

    We're mostly playing together when our schedules allow, but hopefully we can join up with GHOST and eventually join yall in endgame. :)

    These farmers in Limsa Lomensa... man one likes sheep waay too much. And he has his true love who he describes, and I quote, "the thing he loves most on two legs." Which has some profound and disturbing implications.

    We quickly left the Grey Fleet for greener pastures.

    Stream is up, about 5 minutes until things actually start.



    :edit: fair bet there's gonna be 5.x spoilers so probably watch out if you aren't there yet.
