Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers

released on Jul 02, 2019

An expansion for Final Fantasy XIV Online

SHADOWBRINGERS is the third expansion for FFXIV. The expansion takes players to the First, one of thirteen reflections of the Source that is being consumed by a Flood of Light. The main region visited is known as Norvrandt, which is roughly analogous to the Source's Eorzea, and is the only region in the world that has not yet succumbed to the Flood of Light.

"The rains have ceased, and we have been graced with another beautiful day. But you are not here to see it."
"Remember us. Remember that we lived."
"Though the world be sundered and our souls set adrift, where you walk, my dearest friend, fate shall surely follow."
"Stand tall, my friend."
Y'know, I could probably write a long essay about why Shadowbringers is immaculate. But in the end, I kinda just want to leave this reminder of my time with it instead. I know everyone always posts these kinds of quote-reviews for Backloggd, but know that I do this as tribute to how much I treasure this entire game - Shadowbringers most of all.
Take this message instead, if all the countless others posted on this site (and many more) have somehow eluded you - if you have the time to sink in, I implore you to play Final Fantasy 14. It's real long, real fun, real heartbreakingly-compelling, and real good.
(There were at least three more quotes from 5.3 alone I could've used)

shadowbringers asks the question "what if we finally made final fantasy really really good"

I feel so bad for people who dropped the game during Stormblood. One of the best stories I've had the pleasure of experiencing.

YOOOO AWESOME expansion, improvements on every aspect and absolutely great story. Soundtrack amazing too. (Have not done post-shadowbringers yet)

"Remember. Remember us. Remember that we once lived."
FFXIV's oh fuck it, it's time to be the greatest video game of all time arc. Fuck everything associated with golems in this expansion though. Words cannot describe how annoyed I got every time someone said, "Oh, we have to build a golem to overcome x obstacle."
