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!

Why not come join us?! You can find us on Omega (EU)! https://freetrial.finalfantasyxiv.com/
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!
Some happy news for our FFXIV group as at long last, Shadowbringers is upon us! Patch 5.0 was released on Friday and we're now into the early access period! Let the hype commence - especially if the reaction the MSQ is getting is anything to go by!
There are some fairly substantial changes in the patch as you'd expect, particularly in terms of abilities for some classes. There's a few links and bits of useful information that I've collected here on the forum. It's worth giving these a read before you play to hopefully give yourself an idea as to how to repair your likely broken rotations before you head ingame.
Happy patch weekend guys - catch you ingame!
Within our newly formed linkshell in Final Fantasy XIV, we've started running some older raid content unsynced - to see how far we can get with it as a group without needing a full raid party. Tonight we celebrate our first major success as we down Twintania from The Binding Coil of Bahamut!
As we ready ourselves to take on The Second Coil of Bahamut, we're hoping this will be the first in a string of successes for us as a group. Congraulations to our victorious party of M.Steiner (healer, DPS, and unwilling tank extraordinaire), Isileth (wielder of encyclopedic knowledge of mechanics), and Anubis (DPS and would-be tank)!
If you hadn't heard Twitch Prime is running a promotion where Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn is free to play for 30 days for all subscribers. Why does this matter? Well I've been playing for the last few months, and with the promotion one or two more of us are making our way into the game - and we'd love you to join us too!
We're playing on the Omega server, and we've set up a Linkshell to allow us to chat as we play. Come join us, it'll be fun!
