Apparently they're working on a Golden Saucer style area for a few patches down the line.

The game was running perfectly this morning, the changes to the duty finder have seemingly sped up the process, as I only had to wait 30 mins for a dungeon group. The real test will be tonight, I'm hoping the servers have been updated enough to hold peak traffic, they most likely have been since they know the volume of traffic.

They've also added two new worlds. Lich and Famfrit.

Aye, they did have some restrictions in place when the servers went back up, but that was just to make sure the rush of players all logging in didn't kill the servers lol. There's more info here http://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodest...5dd4fe2d529149

Ul'dah is awesome, my favourite city, followed by Limsa Lominsa.

I'm no longer a Thaumaturge, I have taken up my new role as... BLACK MAGE!. I had to train up to level 15 as an Archer though.

Moonfire fire has begun!

Quote:
Signs of an Old Flame

Before the fall of Dalamud, which would bring about the end of the Sixth Astral Era, a Bombard invasion set ablaze panic in the hearts and minds of the people, threatening to reduce our cities to smoldering rubble and ash. Thanks to a band of adventurers who unwittingly joined the Cascadiers, the igneous invaders were vanquished, and the realm was spared a fiery fate, or so reports had us believe.


There has been talk of sightings around Costa del Sol in eastern La Noscea. However, one must always be wary of the whispers of sailors. Ever wont to make sea hares into giant sea serpents and moat carp into mermaids, their wild fabrications have led many an adventurer to misfortune and abashment. Although these were but simple rumors, I would be remiss to overlook reports now coming in from all corners of the realm. Talk of Bombards has spread like wildfire, and for the first time in five years, the Adventurers' Guild has announced the return of the Moonfire Faire.


The Fallacious Festival Returns

Five long years have passed since the fall of Dalamud, and a new generation of adventurers has taken up arms in the absence of the Warriors of Light. But would they be so foolish as to run headlong into the proverbial oven that is the Moonfire Faire? There's no mistaking the Cascadier officers thronging the streets with their pamphlets, permeating the air with platitudes and empty promises. It may not be long before even you, dear reader, come face to face with these ardent recruiters.
Though times may change, the insatiable desire for exotic garments and gear shall ever persist among adventurers. A sense of yearning can be seen burning bright in their eyes at the mere mention of garbs they would receive in preparation for battle. The Adventurers' Guild is sure to entice adventurers to heed the call of the Cascadiers, but will it be enough? I can only hope the whimsical farce known as Moonfire Faire will both drive off this incendiary incursion and bolster our spirits.

Moonfire Faire Dates & Times

From Monday, September 9, 2013, at 8:00 (GMT)

* In light of current server congestion,the duration of the Moonfire Faire event will be extended. A separate announcement will be made regarding the ending date.

How to Participate

Speak to any of the Moonfire Faire chaperones, who will appear in each of the three city-states.


Faire Chaperone Locations


Upper Decks, Limsa Lominsa


Old Gridania


Ul'dah, steps of Nald
Gonna log on soon and check it out!

I'm getting quite bored of being an Arcanist, It's great for day to day business but it's useless in Dungeons. I'm levelling up as a Conjurer for Dungeon and Duty business.

I've recently entered the Cortheas area of the game which is where Dalamud fell and the epic battle in the opening CG cinematic took place. The area is the first are to be seperate from the three Eorzean Alliance city states. Cortheas is part of Ishgard, a religeous city, and the gates to the city have been closed ever since Dalamud fell.

The cool thing about the zone is the much more serious tone and art style, as well as a more dramatic battle theme.

Own a PS4? Then you'll be pleased to know that Square Enix's Senior PR Manager David Yang, has confirmed that every single PS4 user will be granted access to the PS4 beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

That's right, you won't even have to register for an existing account for the game or not. This means that as soon as February 22 gets here, everyone will get into the beta right from the start.

To make this even more interesting, PlayStation Plus won’t be required to play Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4, so if you have a PS4 or will get one before February 22nd then the beta will be right there waiting for you.

Comparison pic (taken from Youtube, so there is some compression on the pic)


The game looks so much more alive now.

I hadn't actually noticed this, but Reverent's Toll in Mor'Dhona has slowly been evolving

Here's how the entrance looked when the game launched


Here's how it looks now


Here's how the aytherite area looked when the game launched


and how it looks now



Really didn't expect the game to evolve like this, I really like it, I'm used to MMO's like WoW, which seem to be very static (Stormwind looked like it had just been attacked 3 years after it had been attacked, in WoW), this is why I love XIV.

Edit: another update in between

2.1


2.16

Quote:
- Gun and Dagger class/jobs were both confirmed and coming sooner than people think. Apparently soon after 2.3. (He said we are saving this info for E3-Announcements, looking forward to June 10th!)

- The gun class isn't what people are expecting it to be.

- Frontlines are aiming to be in 2.3! (They made it seem like it was an 8v8v8, not confirmed though)

- Yoshi said Summoners will be getting Leviathan AND Ramuh pets, no mentioned when they would arrive.

- Black Mage buffs and Summoner pet rebalancing to make others useful coming.

- Yugiri's face was apparently shown to Nakamura, who gasped. No images as of yet.

- Gold Saucer will be BIG. He wants the games to encompass more than just playing with friends. (Hints at match making and chocobo races.)
Personal rooms for your FC housing mentioned again. He said it would be like a mog house from ff11 with decorating.
The new 2.3 Dungeon will be outside, and deal with water, supposedly in La noscea.

- Crafters are getting something to do with salv- (He was cut off, people thought it was salvage, but he claims that he wasn't going to say salvage.)

- Phantasia Potions for sale in May!

Smaller Less Important Tid-bits:

- People complained about still going to the waking sands, solution is coming.(Urianger is staying behind because of the twins are fighting and he doesn't want to leave Alisae(the female twin) behind on her own. Apparently as part of the story, they will make the move in 2.3) So no more waking sands trips!

- Hildibrand was originally supposed to be a Lalafell.

- Yoshi said to watch the Hildibrand cutscenes again and pay attention to a reoccurring person in the back ground stalking Nashu. He said he was surprised no one caught this.

- Gerolt's name in japanese is Gero, which literally means "barf", is getting a personal story to explain his rocky past where he was not such a nice person.

- Stitches in the moogle* are being removed because japanese players find them scary. (Was unclear if he meant the moogle pet or the moogle housing item)

- Housing Instruments if all played at the same time will play a memorable song.
Exciting times ahead!
