Final Fantasy XIV


Hydaelyn - a vibrant planet blessed by the Light of the Crystal.

Amid azure seas, encompassing the westernmost of the Three Great Continents, there lies a realm embraced by gods and forged by heroes. Her name...Eorzea.

It is here that your tale unfolds. Beckoned by the Mothercrystal - the source of all life - you must embark upon a quest to deliver the land from an eternity of Darkness.


Final Fantasy XIV

Since time immemorial, this verdant planet has seen the births of lives uncounted.

But the land now bears grievous scars, and threatens to slip into a gaping maw of death and darkness.

You who would bring the light of hope to Hydaelyn...

You who would heed the whisperings of the aetheryte and take up the mantle of "adventurer."

This is your journey - a new tale to echo down the ages.


Final Fantasy XIV

Comprised of Aldenard, the westernmost of the Three Great Continents, and its surrounding islands, the realm of Eorzea has been the cradle of several unique civilizations throughout history. Towering mountains dominate the north, their peaks forever lashed with icy winds; to the south, a bleak expanse of unforgiving desert holds sway.

Yet these inhospitable lands hold irresistible lure for man and monster alike, for wide and deep flow the currents of aether, and rich are the veins of power-infused crystal. In this harsh though vibrant region, the people of Eorzea have carved out their histories - a cycle of prosperous Astral and disastrous Umbral eras.

The First Umbral Era brought an end to the age of the gods, and there have been six such eras of calamity since the First Astral Era ushered in the age of man. Each of the Umbral catastrophes has, in turn, borne the characteristics of one of the six elements. With all the elements now represented, it was believed the current Astral era would last into eternity.

But in the seventh verse of the Divine Chronicles, Mezaya Thousand Eyes prophesied a less fortunate fate. The "senary sun," or Sixth Astral Era, would indeed end, and the "septenary moon," or Seventh Umbral Era, would cast its shadow upon the land.


Final Fantasy XIV

The life of an adventurer is the pursuit of fortune and fame. It is the devotion of oneself to seeking out danger and glory wherever they might be. It is an endless quest taken up only by the most intrepid and dauntless of souls.

The term came into popular use among the people of Eorzea little more than a decade ago. Left idle by the onset of the Age of Calm, a leading mercenary officer gathered to his side a number of trusted companions, and together they formed a guild dedicated to the common cause of aiding the realm at large.

Outside the modest station of their humble beginnings, a simple sign hung for all to see - Adventurers' Guild.

The Adventurers' Guild has since spread, and can now be found in each of the realm's great nations. It is here that Eorzeans come with their myriad pleas and requests, and here that adventurers heed the call, whether it be the slaying of some foul beast plaguing the countryside, or the crafting of fine wares demanding a master's touch.

What greatness lies in store for you, adventurer?

Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV

The bustling commercial hub of Ul'dah sits amid the desolate desert landscape of southern Aldenard. The city is organized strategically around the dome-shaped citadel at its center. Its towering fortifications and protective outer walls are visible for malms in all directions, and serve as a stark deterrent to would-be besiegers.

Visitors from every corner of Eorzea come to Ul'dah to partake of the city's famed recreation, most notably the fighting arenas and gambling halls. Ul'dahn culture is known for its affluence, and the wealth of the nation comes in large part from its abundant mineral resources and prestigious clothcrafting industry.

Historically, it is the sultan who claims sovereignty over Ul'dah, but true power is wielded by the Syndicate, an elite group of six of the most influential and richest members of society. Nald'thal is the patron deity of the city, and two great halls devoted to his two aspects can be found in the eastern and western sections of the city.


Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV

In the eastern reaches of the Aldenard landmass, home to vast, dense woodlands and coursing rivers, lies the forest nation of Gridania. The cityscape is a mosaic of labyrinthine waterways and great wooden structures, so gracefully constructed they seem a part of the surrounding environment.

The Gridanian emphasis on natural harmony has led to its preeminence among Eorzea's city-states in trades such as forestry, agriculture, carpentry, and leatherworking. Gridania is also home to the Wood Wailers, a militant band of polearm-wielding sentries charged with the protection of their homeland.

The favored goddess of the citizenry is Nophica, the Matron, but great faith is also placed in the wisdom of the Seedseers - young oracles who guide the nation based on the will of the forest's elementals.


Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV

On the southern coast of the island of Vylbrand, under the shadow of ancient cliffs worn by the relentless onslaught of the Rhotano Sea, lies the marine city-state of Limsa Lominsa. Said to be blessed by the goddess of navigation, Llymlaen, the city is spread out over countless tiny islands, each connected by sturdy bridges of iron and wood construction, earning her the name the "Navigator's Veil" from traveling bards who have witnessed the city's beauty from afar.

Limsa Lominsa is a traditional thalassocracy, with power lying in the hands of the ruling party and its leader, the Admiral. Its economy is driven by shipbuilding, fishing, and blacksmithing, but the majority of wealth comes from the lucrative shipping industry.

To maintain the safety of its maritime routes, the city employs a formidable navy known as the Knights of the Barracuda. However, even in the waters nearby the city, pirate bands run rampant, reaving and pillaging.


Final Fantasy XIV

Mor Dhona is an inland region of Eorzea, and the site of the first aerial battle in recorded history - a conflict that took place above Silvertear Lake. In the Year 1562 of the Sixth Astral Era, five years after the invasion of Ala Mhigo, the Garlean Empire finally rose from apparent inactivity to resume its attack on Eorzea. A fleet of airships was deployed to Mor Dhona, led by the massive flagship Agrius.

As the imperial fleet advanced into the skies above Silvertear Lake, the largest inland body of water in Aldenard, it was met with a wholly unexpected sight. Midgardsormr, the dragon deity of the lake, had arisen, summoned by a hand unknown. And as if to answer the mighty wyrm's call, a host of dragons flew in from the northwestern reaches of Dravania and fell upon the Empire's forces.

The air was filled with the deafening roars of cannons and dragonkin alike. Locked in a deadly embrace, the thunderous impact of Midgardsormr and the dreadnought Agrius tolled their mutual demise. Thus ended the Battle of Silvertear Skies.

Even now, the carcass of the immense wyrm lies entwined with the wreckage of the Agrius in the center of the lake, a towering monument to the ferocity of the conflict. Ever since that day, the lands of Eorzea have continued an inexorable fall into chaos.


Final Fantasy XIV

The highlands of Gyr Abania in the eastern reaches of Aldenard were once under the control of a martial nation known as Ala Mhigo. It was, perhaps, the historically conflicted nature of the territory that forged the country into a significant military power.

Even as this aggressive nation sent its forces to conquer in the west, it repelled repeated attempts at invasion from the east. In the Year 1557 of the Sixth Astral Era, however, it finally fell to the incursions of the Garlean Empire. From that time onwards, the country became merely another imperial territory under the governance of its usurpers. Though the people of Ala Mhigo once revered Rhalgr, the Destroyer, as their patron deity, any such religious observance has since been forbidden by the controlling authorities.


Final Fantasy XIV

In the central region of Abalathia's Spine, that great mountain range that spans Aldenard from east to west, can be found the forbidding highlands of Coerthas and the Holy See of Ishgard. The archbishop of the church, while leading his people in the teachings of Halone, the Fury, rules also as the nation's sovereign.

Ishgard's formidable army of knights wages constant battle against its mortal enemies, the dragons. Faced with ever more aggressive attacks from its serpentine foes, as well as an unprecedented spell of bitter cold, the theocracy's days are dark indeed. Matters have grown so grave as to prompt the archbishop and his advisors to consider throwing open the heretofore sealed gates of Ishgard and calling for outside aid.

Final Fantasy XIV



Over the course of some one thousand years and three great migratory waves, the Hyur have come to be the most populous of the civilized races in Eorzea. Compared to the others, theirs is an average physique, both in terms of height and build. The Hyur champion personal freedom and liberty, and their espousal of an eclectic variety of languages and traditions is a legacy of their diverse heritage - as is their resulting lack of a unified cultural identity.


Final Fantasy XIV



Though their presence in Eorzea is lesser than that of the other races, the Miqo'te are easily distinguished by their large, projecting ears and restless, feline tails. The ancestors of this line first made their way to the realm during the Age of Endless Frost in the Fifth Umbral Era, traversing frozen seas in pursuit of the wildlife upon which they subsisted. Instinctual territoriality causes many among them to lead solitary lifestyles. Males in particular are said to shy from contact with others.


Final Fantasy XIV



The Elezen are a characteristically tall people, long of limb and slender of build. They are also possessed of a somewhat extended lifespan in comparison to the Hyur. The Elezen once claimed sole dominion over Eorzea, their presence predating that of the other races, and, as such, developed a heightened sense of honor and pride. In years past, the Hyur migration into Elezen lands sparked bitter conflict. At present, however, the mutual understanding reached between the two races allows them to work towards mutual peace and prosperity.


Final Fantasy XIV


The Roegadyn are easily identified by their massive, muscular frames. They are descended from a maritime people that roamed the northern seas, though many of their ancestors turned their longships south to brave the crossing into Eorzean waters. Often considered a barbaric race, the fiercely competitive Roegadyn are also known for their compassion and unswerving loyalty. Many of the greatest warriors in history were born of Roegadyn stock.


Final Fantasy XIV


The Lalafell are a folk both rotund and diminutive. Small by any race's standards and possessed of a childlike countenance, it proves difficult for non-Lalafell to gauge an individual's age with any degree of accuracy. Originally an agricultural people inhabiting the fertile islands of the south seas, they found their way to Eorzea via the burgeoning trade routes. Lalafell are welcoming of outsiders, and share prosperous relations with all of the other races of Eorzea.

Eorzea is home to myriad unique races. Among them are the tribes of the beastmen, who are responsible for calling down the god-like beings known as primals. Primals are possessed of terrifying power, and are effectively immortal - they can return from death's halls no matter how many times they are slain. They are wont to bless their beastman worshippers with spiritual and physical strength, and the city-states deem them a most dire threat.

Though appearing carefree and almost flippant at times, the depth of her focus is revealed in battle, where she stands ever ready to protect her comrades.

This Lalafellin youth wields the powers of a thaumaturge, and is highly knowledgeable in the field of aether. Papalymo's childlike features, typical of his race, bely a biting cynicism that often puts him at odds with the perpetually cheerful Yda, the companion with whom he roves the Black Shroud.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Blend of New and Old Ideas

Pros: -Well executed familiar features and gameplay that will attract those who have played MMORPGs in the past
-Innovative new features, especially involved in endgame progression that will keep old and new players alike interested and invested.
-Incredible graphics for a game of its scale without compromising framerate, and a very well optimized engine that will run well on even lower end gaming machines.
-Extremely dedicated developers who are constantly working on new content that comes to you for only the cost of the sub fee. One of the few MMORPGs with one that actually makes it worth your while.
-Ability to unlock and switch to any of the available classes and jobs with the same character. No need for mass amounts of alternate characters to experience literally everything the game has to offer.
-Well balanced class system makes every one feel unique and perfectly viable in its own way all they way through all of the content.

Cons: None really come to mind. Most complaints about this game simply come from people's preferences and not actual problems with the game.

Other Thoughts: If you like MMORPGs in general, you will probably enjoy this game a lot. As of now it is on sale for only $10 and this includes a free month of game time. This is an absolute steal for essentially 30 days to play the game and see if you like it. I personally was able to play through all the way up to endgame in about 2 weeks (playing an absurd amount of time per day though I might add, racking up over almost 200 hours) so if you have a lot of free time you should be able to at least see the majority of what this game has to offer in that month.

4 out of 5 eggsCaptured for the first time.. in a while.

Pros: This game has so much to do, it is beautiful, it is fun, and it is Final Fantasy.

The lore is awesome, the game play is fluid.. I am a SWTOR, EQ, WOW, and FF11 veteran and this game is really on par with all of the above.

Cons: Load screens aren't much of a con for me, but I think it would be nice to not have them but I understand it helps them keep the game stable. They're super short between zones.

Linkshell/Friends list. I wish they would just make the Linkshell the standard form of friend list. I just want to be able to use my Username and communicate with all my friends across each character

5 out of 5 eggsMore fun, better balance

Pros: The opening 10 levels or so are fairly standard, as mmos go, but once you begin digging in this game just keeps getting better. I was a veteran wow raider since vanilla, an aggressive endgame pvper in swtor, and have played many more in the genre since then, and this is by a MASSIVE margin the most fun, best balanced, engaging, rewarding and beautiful mmo i've ever played. Square Enix took the best elements of existing games, added some great ones of their own, and most importantly recaptured the feel of the Final Fantasy world in a way that has eluded them for many years. The player community is helpful and friendly too. I recommend reviews and research to get specific details about the game, but i couldn't possibly overstate my satisfaction with the game. It's everything i hoped for back at its tragic initial release a few years back.

Cons: Not a lot of dev interaction and notably japenese-centric company may make some US players feel disconnected from the game's ongoing development. The pvp system is closed (no world pvp) and feels a bit vestigial, but not bad.

5 out of 5 eggsFFXIV ARR

Pros: There're so many things I could list here from the visuals, the music, the jobs, the story... It's really a game you have to experience to understand how great it is. One thing that I think is huge is this - Yoshi P. and Square Enix are really in to this game. They are working very hard to give the players what they want and have been doing a very good job.
I would say this is the best MMO I've ever played. Of course, like any and everything, it's not for some people. But give it a try before judging it. You will most likely not be disappointed.

Cons: Nothing really. As far as I know, all of the bugs and hickups that were present at the launch have long since been fixed. I guess the only strike I can give the game is that levels 1 - 15 are slow paced action wise. Once you get past that point, provided you've stayed on top of your main story quests, it gets a LOT more fun. But even saying that's a "con" is just nitpicking.

Other Thoughts: People giving the game a bad rating because the launch was a total cluster - Every MMO's launch that I've been part of and heard about have been bad. SE gave people more free play time because of how bad the early access and official launch were so stop crying about it. They got it together in a reasonable amount of time and have kept it solid ever since. And yes, I was one of the many people that was locked out durning early access/launch.

Pros: Still waiting for the code response.

Cons: After I bought the motherboard that had this game for the combo package, I am still waiting for the code. I checked my email and have not received any sort of code for the game yet.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good mmorpg

Pros: its a pretty fun mmorpg.
I think it does quite alot to help keep the same genre going.

crafting is 100x then any other games implementation, though it can sometimes be as boring/tedious.

Cons: cookie cutter mmorpg, but there arnt too many "new exciting" ways to redo the mmorpg genre (maybe after virtual reality is more developed).

Not enough content... this has truly killed the game... I know the game is new, but the lack of content is just... bad...

few bad decisions on game mechanics (like dungeon lockouts on only fun instance in game, and with new 2.1 dungeons being added which are below this one have a loot lockout).
So the ilvl90 and ilvl80 gear drop dungeons can only be run once per week leaving not much to do the rest of the week...

Other Thoughts: The upcoming patch 2.1 will FINALLY give the game what it should of had from the start. It will be adding a lot of new dungeons, fights and other little things like treasure hunts.

I think if the game launched with 2.1 content, this mmorpg would have been as amazing as it should have been.
I look forward to future patches.


And to comment about launch... yes the game had server problems at launch due to this game having a record number of players...
EVERY SINGLE mmo every made goes through the same thing :/
And with ffxiv, it only lasted a week of being really bad (where unless you used a log in macro like me and walk away for 30mins, it was impossible to log in).
the 2nd week, there was still issues, but most people were able to play.
3rd week it was mostly fixed, and by the end of the month there was almost no more issues.

SE gave EVERYONE 14 days FREE extra due to this. (dont think ive ever heard of that before in other games).
ON TOP of that, they offered FREE server transfers since char creation was limited at launch.

Pros: None.

Cons: Pre-ordered, waited 6 months, installed in 35 minutes, never able to load game due to their servers always being overwhelmed. Used up my entire 30 day trial membership and never once got a response from support or ever able to connect to their busy servers. What a shame.

3 out of 5 eggsFinal Fantasy Cookie Cutter

Pros: Its a great looking game. The graphics are fantastic. The interaction between the NPC's and the Players are great. The character customization is great, but I'd prefer more content then more hair colors personally.

Cons: After you get past the glamour of a new game, it's the same cookie cutter 'Go here, kill XX amount of Mobs, Turn in'. There's nothing new or different about the game other then the beauty of its graphics.

Other Thoughts: I didn't like having to log in twice and having to use two separate ID's for the PS3. PC is much the same.
