It’s been a very busy week in the world of FFXIV as Yoshida has appeared in two separate interviews and dropped preliminary patch notes for the impending 4.1. But, LBR doesn’t get to dive too deeply into them because the phones are ringing off the hook, you’re going to want to hear what these callers had to say about the state of the game.
With another Live Letter in the books and Patch 4.1 coming in less than 2 weeks Eorzea should be abuzz with excitement. Yet, all is not well in the world of FFXIV. Where is Eureka? When do we get Rival Wings? Why are we doing to Ivalice? These are all valid questions, tune in now. We promise no answers.
Square Enix recently updated the official site in preparation for the launch of Patch 4.1. Along with these updates we got a few little snippets of text that hint at the newest raid Return to Ivalice as well as some clues to the context of the forthcoming MSQ injection. The hosts break that all down, then relax with some Limit Breaking Music.
With Patch 4.1 having an October release, information has started to surface of the content the players can expect. Everything from Housing plots to new trials. But the big thing on everyone’s radar is the Ultimate Series, a new form of content for the elite. Is the incentive enough? The crew breaks it down.
Now that everyone has had time to digest Stormblood and the slew of changes it’s brought to the game, the hosts go through each major class-type and discuss how the changes have impacted the jobs closest to their hearts. A bevy of callers also bring up a host of topics including if it’s possible to right the ship or if Square Enix’s current course with the game is a permanent one.
Stormblood has all but played out in most players minds, the MSQ is finished, the entire raid tier has already been overcome. When can we expect Patch 4.1 and what comes along with it? The LBR cast compares what SE has promised and what…Blizzard is bringing in their next patch. The differences are staggering. We also take your calls and emails and have a special guest read an LBR fanfic!
If you consider yourself strong of will and brave of heart, listen at your own mortal peril. Juxta Position has taken over hosting duties and turned this episode into a Tumblr + Buzzfeed article made real. The crew explores ‘The Top 14 Relationships that MUST happen during Stormblood’ as well as the Wheel of Intolerance. They attempt to hold a real discussion, but Juxta ruins that too. Turn back now.
