group news - final fantasy xiv
After two housing lotteries lost and many hours spent planning, designing, building & tinkering by M.Steiner & Isileth, we are now the proud owners of a fully furnished Free Company estate in Empyreum on Omega!
If you'd like to pay us a visit you can find us in Ward 10, Plot 8. Alternatively, MS has posted lots of screenshots on the forum as well which you can see here.
Good luck out there if you're braving the housing savage too, we know those plots are not easy to come by (or any, for that matter)!
We're almost there, folks! As we say our goodbyes to Shadowbringers, the FFXIV servers have now gone down for maintenance in preparation for the early access launch of Endwalker (6.0), due to go live at 9am GMT tomorrow morning!
Endwalker is the final chapter of the Hydaelyn and Zodiark storyline, bringing to an end this decade-long saga in what is reported to be the games biggest expansion yet. Unlike previous expansions which would continue their stories into the post-launch patch cycle (Shadowbringers ended in 5.3 for example), Endwalker will begin & end in 6.0. With it comes brand new zones, cities, dungeons, jobs and a whole lot more. - The full patch notes have been published here.
See you guys on the moon!
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!
