The Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker is one of the most famous endgame activities in Final Fantasy XIV and can only be accessed by those who have reached the required level cap. We’re at the end of the road here, and it’s time to talk about the Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker.
What is the Game About?
The game takes place in the fictional realm of Eorzea, where players can explore the land and learn more about the lore, and the backstory of the world Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker takes place in.
The Endwalker is a gigantic serpentine dragon located in the Sea of Clouds, an expansive area that is home to many floating islands. The Endwalker can be fought by up to eight people at once and is a challenging battle for groups that are not properly prepared. This is the sixth boss in the Dragonsong War storyline of Final Fantasy XIV, and it’s a long one. With a difficulty level of 4/10, it’s one of the easier fights in the third part of the arc, but that doesn’t mean you can just rush in. There are a couple of things you need to keep in mind before you get started. The first is that this fight will require a lot of teamwork, and the second is that you need to be careful of one specific mechanic.
With each new expansion’s release, Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker introduces new content, including new areas, races, jobs, classes, and storylines. A Realm Reborn, the game’s second expansion, was released on August 27, 2013.
Today, we will be discussing some of the new things we know about the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker. Let’s get onto it!
New to Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker
- The last time we saw the land of Eorzea, we were flying a giant dragon that was taking out the Garlean Empire. Not much has changed since Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Players have seen new locations like Radz-at-han, Thavnair, and Garlemald.
Radz-at-han, Thavnair, and Garlemald are new locations added to Final Fantasy XIV. Garlemald is a new zone with an overworld map and is an area of Eorzea that is controlled by the Garlean Empire. The battle system for Garlemald is the eight-player Raid series, while the battle system for Radz-at-han and Thavnair is the new 24-player Raid series.
- There will be two new official jobs in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. During the stream, it was revealed that there will be a fourth healer, The Sage. A lot of players have said in the past that the game doesn’t offer enough space for this healer, so Koji Fox and Yoshi-P will be adding another job for that.
We all know that the White Mage is meant to be purely a healer. But with the new job, the Sage, both will have the ability to heal and have barriers. The Sage is pretty amazing. It can heal, bring out barriers, and also give a direct attack to the enemy.
This job will start at the 70th level, and you will have to do some grinding before actually getting to use the job for the Endwalker. As for the other job that will be added, no information has been revealed or leaked, but we can confirm that the 2nd new job that’ll be coming will be a melee DPS.
- Now, the characters that we have all seen in the newest teaser trailer that they have released. Alphinuad has been shifted to the Sage job. The red mage will remain with Alisaie. Alisaie will surprisingly have a new costume, and they said that we’d be surprised where she’ll get it from. Fandaniel is still a mystery to players, and lastly, we have Zenos yae Galvus, who will fight the first and only friend that he has ever made, which is the Warrior of Light.
- As for the upcoming brand new dungeons, there hasn’t been much concrete information that we have obtained, but there is a bit that we know of. The dungeon shown to the public had the appearance of a ruined temple inside a burning forest. People suspect that it has ties to Thavnair.
Another one was pretty much the opposite of the first one, it looks like a biomechanical fortress, and the last one looked very similar to the Magitek train station.
In conclusion, there is much to get excited about with regards to the new version of this game.
