Final Fantasy XIV previews the second section of Alexander

Forward and back and then forward and back and we go forward and back and wait this wasn't that boss.
The threat of the Illuminati in Final Fantasy XIV has yet to be fully dealt with. Sure, the initial struggle to shut down Alexander was largely successful, but the massive fortress primal is still in the middle of the Thaliak River. When patch 3.2 arrives, another arm will rise from the river, and players will be in for another struggle to take on the goblins within in Alexander: Midas.

Adventurers who wish to challenge Midas will need to clear Gordias, unsurprisingly. Both normal and Savage modes will be available for players to challenge immediately when the patch launches, rather than a delay for the harder mode of the content. A minimum item level has not yet been established, but it’s safe to bet that players who have kept up with gear will be able to challenge the Illuminati once again.

I’m looking forward to this update for so many reasons, will be fun to jump back into Alex. Thinking I might go try coil un-synced too. Could be fun. Never got to do that in 2.x :)

While im up for more robits and extremely freezepop sounding boss themes this loot system can once again do one. I still dont have any of the alex accessories since everyone needs everything since the tokens count for all their jobs not just the one they are playing. If its that all over again once again its going to be easier to do it once for the story then just get your tomestone gear instead.

aSlightDrizzle Its the first time i see any diference, and i still don`t really notice much diference between the two, in fact, considering how “stupid” both tribes are (comic relief i guess?) just make them look too similar altogether and honestly, you could change the goblins for kobolds and the other way arround and i still would say they are the most poor to go along with Alexander.
Alexander should have his robotics guardians and some dark-ish Sharlayan corrupted group, not… These KOBOLDS.

Dragonfang09 aSlightDrizzle Kobolds and Goblins are two different beasts. This is a kobold:comment image, this is a Goblin:http://cdn.guildwork.net/albums/images/52114b85a068d634a49a7ac7.jpg

They’re a different species. Also, in Brayflox, they reference Gobbie Cheese, why would Kobolds want “Gobbie” cheese? Plus the Kobolds are the beast tribe of Titan.

aSlightDrizzle They are kobolds. http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Kobold_(Final_Fantasy_XIV)
But they also are goblins. The localization team seem to use both terms indiscriminately for naming kobold/goblins. For example the beast tribe is clearly called kobold. while some leaves and fates reffer to them as goblins. The Illuminaty description refers to them as Goblins, but during the events of Brayflox HM, the Illuminaty were called Kobolds.

Dragonfang09 They’re goblins. Kobolds would’ve been more interesting, IMO :P

Fucking kobolds, so tired of them, they are the reason why Alexander doesn`t feel a 1/10 of how epic Coil was.
