The last pre-expansion patch for Final Fantasy XIV
is titled Before the Fall, not That Time When The Heroes Fixed Everything. There needs to be a fall, doesn't there? And there's a lot
of stuff that can start falling, as demonstrated in today's preview from the official site
. Ul'dah can fall. The Scions can fall. Ishgard can fall. Eorzea can fall. Or if you decide to face off against the Dark Divinity himself, you
Players not confronting the dread primal directly will still have plenty of opportunities for pratfalls
, as the Hildibrand storyline is wrapping up with the final confrontation between the Gentleman Inspector and his thieving rival. There's also a second confrontation with
Greg in the Battle at the Big Keep, with the victor winning the Treaty-Blade... which sounds like pretty good loot, but Greg carries a lot of weapons, so it seems rather natural.
Patch 2.5 drops on January 20th.
