group news - final fantasy xiv
As you may be aware, FFXIV has seen a massive influx of both new & returning players just recently with a newfound popularity on Twitch and the game not only breaking its concurrent players record on Steam (repeatedly I may add) but Square Enix even managing to sell out of digital copies on both their US & UK storefronts!
With this new popularity and us being in the run-up to the new expansion pack (Endwalker) we have this week made a bit of a return ourselves as well with the return of Anubis, Isileth & myself. Not only that but joining us ingame for the very first time are Snow & Rain who some of you will remember from our days in WoW:EU! So great to have them with us!

If you've been following our FFXIV group, you'll know that last year we made our first forays into unsynced group content by tackling Twintania from The Binding Coil of Bahamut. Well, not before time, we've finally returned to the Coil to finish the job!
Our now much more competent band of heroes sent Bahamut packing and completed our first unsynced raid series in the process, and we dropped some screenshots in the Gallery to celebrate the event!
Congratulations to our successful party of Isileth (master tank, loremaster of mechanics), M.Steiner (almighty handler of the sacred healing arts) and Anubis (mostly just a master of dying a lot whilst flailing with his trident)! Our next trial awaits!
The Moogle Treasure Trove event begins on Monday which will introduce a temporary new set of tomestones to be dropped from a number of duties within FFXIV.
These tomestones can then be spent on a number of cool items - some new, some existing and some which are (until this event) no longer obtainable. Mounts (2 of which are only usually obtainable from HW extreme primals for example), minions, MGP tokens, Triple Triad cards, glamour stuff etc. There looks to be something for everybody!
The event will run from Monday (30th Sep) until the release of 5.1, which is currently slated for late October. More info here.
We've been playing FFXIV for a few months now, and we figured it was about time we had a bit of a presence for the game on the website - so welcome to our shiny new Final Fantasy XIV Group Website!
We're all currently at different stages in game - some finished the story, and some haven't, etc - but we're planning to continue our efforts to beat content unsynced as a group as soon as we can. Thus far we've progressed well with Bahamut and Alexander, and there's definitely more to come on the horizon.
If you want to join our Cross World Linkshell give one of us a shout on either the forums or Discord, and we'll get you sorted out with an invite. For now, enjoy the new website!
