I might resub for a few months and play through the main scenario. That would be it probably.

Thats what I am thinking. 

Ive been watching the patch story updates on youtube, but I can probably blow though them one of the free weekends they will do before 4.0. 



Buggle Up! Danger! Danger! (Genocide!) Death the Crisis! Dangerous Zombie!

If you guys haven't played since 3.1, blowing through the entire storyline is not do-able without new gear. There are a few dungeon that will require you upgrade your equipment. Luckily the Research Facility has had it's lore reward upped, in addition to a few other dungeons. However, the Niddhog 2.0 and Baelsar's Wall dungeons will lock you out without the required ilvls.

I was lucky enough to be able to get passed 2.0 Niddhog during the last free weekend. Baelsar's Wall will probably take some grearing.

Sorry for the double post, but if anyone wants to try to burn though the patches before stormblood we just hit a free weekend.

I cleared the Nidhogg before I stopped playing and I was decently geared at the time with the latest tomr stuff. Healer.

Stormblood Benchmark Trailer



All looking good. Looking like a possible Utlros rematch is incoming at some point during the 4.0 story. A showcase fo the Red Mage and Samurai classes, some new toyws the Emprie has made to throw at us, inclding the FF6 in-game M-Tek Armor. Also Yojimo now confirmed though I imagine theya re portraying him as some Voidsent creatue like Diablos has been.

I wouldn't be so quick to take what is shown on the Benchmark trailer as gospel though - earlier benchmarks also showed stuff that never actually made it into the actual game itself (remember the ARR benchmark and it's blatant lies of a free-roaming Ifrit in Thanalan?), so until SE confirms it, I'm going to err on the side of caution and take Yojimbo and Ultros's appearences as just fluff for the sake of the benchmark and not representative of the actual expansion content. May I be proven wrong though! :p

Also I have to finally join the year 2017 and euthanize XP as the benchmark is incompatiable with 32bit OSes (which I still use). :( Ah well, I knew it was inevitable, but still stings....

is macOS version still handicapped by essentially being run through virtual machine bottleneck?

I have no idea, I only have experience with the Win version, although I have heard the Mac client is rather buggy and problematic.

In other news, the theme song video for Stormblood has been released, called Revolutions, composed by Nobuo Uematsu and sung by Susan Calloway like Answers and Dragonsong:



Luckily there's not really much in the way of spoilers particularly if you haven't yet finished Heavensward through to the end of 3.55b (other than
Spoiler: Move your mouse over the container to reveal.
Ilberd's demise on Baelsar's Wall to summon Shinryu, Papalymo's sacrifice to seal said Primal, and Yda's shock revelation as an imposter at the end of 3.5...
but they're shown in such a way that there is no real context to them other than 'stuff is happening'. The song is nice, not jaw-dropping emotion like Answers, but still good. :)

Either way, some interesting things teased - Alisaie confirmed to be a RDM (using the aetheric 'Blade of Light' she summoned in 3.4), FFVI air armour are appearing as Garlean machina, an Ala Mhigan (Gundobald?) channels the American Revolution by painting "LIBERTY OR DEATH" on a wall, Aymeric and Lucia are in a blink or you'll miss it scene alongside the Alliance forces storming Ala Mhigo, Doma's quisling ruler Yotsuya is a sadistic, cold hearted bitch, and Zenos gleefuly chews the scenery. :p

Either way, I can't wait til next month. :D

Hnng, I need to catch up. I've gotten as far as Baelsar's Wall but then the Great Game Blitz of 2017 hit and I haven't logged in since like February.

It looks like BLM and leylines might live in harmony now. BRD plays a flute and MCH looks more than 'cool' to me. RDM had some interseting abilities that looked very AOEish. 

All the jobs showcased well, except PLD looked pretty lackluster. The thing that stuck out the most is the specialized ability/skill bars. It seems like they poured a lot of work into making each job unique. Wonder how it will all work,

So 4.0 makes WHM irrelvenent so instead of changing jobs I just am not buying the game.

How will WHM be irrelevant in 4.0? Most of the chatter seems to think it will be in a similar spot compared to how it performed in Heavensward: fine in most endgame content, but AST and SCH will be preferred among players with equal skill in pushing Savage.

If you were just coming back for the Stormblood MSQ, that won't be anything you have to worry about.
