The Daily Grind: What do you most want to know about Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker?

Walking.

Today is the day when all of the Final Fantasy XIV fandom’s namedays have come at once. Yes, it’s the media tour reveal day, when journalists such as yours truly get to talk incessantly about all of the cool stuff we saw during our brief tour of an early build of Endwalker ahead of its full release. It sucks to have to hold on to all of this information and not be able to tell anyone, but today is finally the day.

So I’m curious to see what our readers are looking forward to learning about today. It’s a little too late for me to write up an entire new article for coverage (there are a lot of articles about this today already), but what are you looking forward to learning about? Your existing job? The two new jobs, Reaper and Sage? The dungeon or zones? Something else altogether? What do you most want to know about Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

“What do I want to know most?” Question not applicable. I don’t play this game. Beep beep imma sheep.

Are they doing a ‘returning players’ thing anytime soon, or did I just miss it again?

I would consider another little stint on there since it’s had a few updates after I played. (Heavensward)

But I am one of those ‘Have to get my feet wet before jumping back in’ types. And last I knew, I can’t play it free/get on and look around unless I’m paying sub. (Some people had an argument about this the last time I asked…they came to a conclusion that my account would not qualify. I don’t know because it’s not installed on here currently and would have to do all the installation stuff again to even check and that’s a heck of a lot of effort with giant games like this for possibly no reward.)

Last time I asked, people were being really nasty to me because I pointed out how much sub games actually charge you for a subscription now…

I’d like to know to what extent they have, or plan to, develop the lore of the Au Ra. Among all the races in the game, the Au Ra are unique to FFXIV. They have a region with some impressive ancient structures that the current Xaela inhabitants don’t appear to have the expertise to have built or maintain. They have the small Raen colony in the Ruby Sea whose lore mentions fleeing their homeland in the distant past. And now we also have, alongside the excellent Sorrow of Werlyt side story, a substantial region in southern Ilsabard that is largely populated by Raen. Yoshi and his team have a great opportunity to really flesh out the race and it’s history and I’d like to know how much thought has gone into that thus far.

New classes and class changes mostly.

Nothing, really. I dearly love some of the ideas in this game, in particular how a single character can have every class, and I love Final Fantasy as a franchise — I’ve beaten almost every non-MMO Final Fantasy game — but a few things about FFXIV push me away, and it doesn’t look like they will ever change. They aren’t deal-breakers, but they do push FFXIV down enough on my list of games I want to play that I’m not sure I will ever get to it.
