Stormblood is so far an amazing expac for FFXIV; been moving through the main campaign and the feels are reals lol. From the events in Gyr Abania(A La Mihgo) to events in the Far East, the story is just awesome. And Samurai and Red Mage are a ton of fun to play.
And almost done the main campaign; love the over all villain, the allies were great and the story of the lady in red from the trailer was very compelling.
Dear goddess the Shiryu fight is insane!....well kinda, just a matter of mastering the mechanics but so much crazy *!@# happening all at once.
Stormblood MSQ done, and now to do what you always do while waiting for the next thing; grind baby grind.
Been watching the Zodiac Age run through for 12 and reading things on Tvtropes...and I think it was there, but no sure, but there was a theory I saw that I liked: That the cast of 12 are responsible for the hell hole that Ivalice becomes by the time of Tactics.
I mean, yes they helped to free the world from the Occuria, the grand puppet masters controlling the world for so long, and dealing with the rouge Venat, Vayne and Cid...but over the course of the game, you are able to recruit the Espers and bind them to the party. Of course, said Espers are the Zodiac Braves we run into in Tactics.
So the thought behind the theory is that because the Occuria were the ones who originally set up the sealing of the Espers in the first place and then the party freed them, either the Espers broke free of their binding at some point or when the party eventually passes away they got loose that way...and without the Occuria to re-seal the Espers again, they started the Holy War that we learned caused the destruction of civilization and reduced the land of Ivalice to the medieval landscape we saw. There is a sorta thing that pops up in the bestiary of 12; Ajora
is mentioned as setting up a new church sect. Would be nice to get some type of thing that combines the two to let them show what happens.
So first new villain for Dissidia NT has a release date of April...and it's Vayne
:D Can't wait.
