FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Songs from the Storm

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings, Warriors of Light!

The melodies of revolution kept us going through our adventures as we set off to liberate Ala Mhigo and Doma from the grip of the Garlean Empire. Many of these songs became near and dear to our hearts as anthems of freedom and the memories we made along the way! So naturally, ever since the expansion's release, we've received the same frequent question: "When is the OST coming out??"

We're pleased to announce that the long-awaited FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood Original Soundtrack album is now available!

20180704_yn_01.jpg

With over 100 songs from Patch 4.0 through Patch 4.3, this Blu-ray disc features over six hours of music! Where do we even begin?

You can get a feel for the sheer volume of music contained in the album by checking out this video that showcases three seconds from every song on the album:

Each first-run edition also comes with a bonus in-game item code for this adorable Wind-up Tsukuyomi minion as well! Oh... it's going to be a long night.

As a special bonus, the music videos for both Rise and Under the Weight by everyone's favorite FFXIV rock band, THE PRIMALS, are also included the disc!

THE PRIMALS 「Rise (Music Video)」

THE PRIMALS 「Under the Weight (Music Video)」

Speaking of which, did you catch the making of the Under the Weight music video? If not, check it out! The video is in Japanese, but it's quite fun watching the members of the band interact with one another to put together such an awesome music video!

The soundtrack is available now on the Square Enix Store, so order yours today!

Until next time,

FFXIV News - Dev Blog: All Miqo'te Go To Heaven-on-High

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings,

Patch 4.35 is five days away, launching on Tuesday, July 3, and I'm sure I'm not the only one anxious to dive into the second installment of the Deep Dungeon series, Heaven-on-High!

I'm here to give you a heads-up on the preparation you need to enter and to also give you a little sneak peek!

Requirements
You must meet the following requirements to take on Heaven-on-High:

- Disciple of Warrior or Magic level 61 and above
- Have completed the Stormblood main scenario quest Tide Goes In, Imperials Go Out (level 63 quest)
- Have cleared floor 50 of the Palace of the Dead
- When registering to enter, all party members on all Worlds must be in the Ruby Sea.

You can enter Heaven-on-High by speaking to the new NPC that will be located in the Ruby Sea (X:21.4 Y:9.2). Similar to the Palace of the Dead, as long as all party members on all Worlds are inside the Ruby Sea, you'll be able to enter. So be sure to use the cross-world party feature as well!

For those who haven't completed the first 50 floors of Palace of the Dead, you still have time! So try and complete it this weekend to make sure you're ready!

Into Heaven-on-High

As we revealed in our previous Letter from the Producer LIVE, that gigantic tower in the Ruby Sea is Heaven-on-High.

20180628_yn_1.jpg

Why exactly does the interior feature an Asian theme?

20180628_yn_2.jpg

This will be revealed during through the story, so please look forward to it!

For those unaware, the story will reach its conclusion once you complete floor 30. And floor 31-100 is set as a type of challenge mode.

You can only enter floor 31 and above solo or in a fixed party of two to four players. The save data must also have a zero for party KO count as well, so be careful! * Please be advised that the Party KO count will also increase in the event that your party abandons the duty, or logs out while inside the instance.

Tons of vicious foes awaits adventurers from floor 31 an above.

20180628_yn_3.jpg

Even a party of four will most likely struggle with some of them.

20180628_yn_4.jpg

What!?

20180628_yn_5.jpg

Also, the mood and the music will change as you climb higher up the tower, so be sure to check those out too!

Why does tower even exist? Why are these monsters inside here in the first place?

20180628_yn_6.jpg

And the biggest question of the all, is the Dodo mount obtained by appraising treasure!?

20180628_yn_7.jpg

All your answers await within Heaven-on-High!
Let the race to floor 100 begin! Good luck!

FFXIV News - Dev Blog: It's In Here Somewhere

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings,

Many of you may be anticipating the addition of the second Deep Dungeon, Heaven-on-High, right? Or perhaps you're eagerly awaiting some more Hildibrand adventures? But wait, there's more! Typically, we save our larger system-related quality of life updates for major patches, but we've got something very useful coming in Patch 4.35!

20180621_yn_1_EN.jpg

The results from the item search function (using the "Search for Item" submenu, or the /itemsearch text command) will now appear in their own window.

Under the direction of Hiroshi Minagawa of the UI Team, the team has made some improvements to the item search feature so that items can be located easier, because more storage locations have been added to the game recently. We've got retainers, the armoire, saddlebags, the glamour dresser... So many places to search!

And don't fret, these results will also still show up in the text log as usual.

20180621_yn_2_EN.jpg

And there's actually one more thing that is slightly different.

20180621_yn_3_EN.jpg

FFXIV stores all sorts of important information such as character levels and inventory on the server, but detailed information such as where the item is stored and how many you have gets stored in the client cache.

For that reason, the item search function isn't communicating with the server for your item data, but rather checking through your cached data on the PC or PS4. As a result, if you play on multiple platforms, or access your account from another machine, your stored cache data could provide an outdated result.

In Patch 4.35, we're adding information to display if your cache data for the item search is new or not.

20180621_yn_4_EN.jpg

Storage locations marked by a red ? mark have not been updated since your last login. In order to retrieve the information, you'll need to access the storage (for example, calling forth your retainer, or opening up your chocobo saddlebag). Storage that is up-to-date and ready to be searched will display with a green mark.)

20180621_yn_5_EN.jpg

20180621_yn_6_EN.jpg

For those who only play FFXIV on a single platform, you won't need to worry about ? or , so just use the feature as usual!

Please note that the mobile FFXIV Companion App (scheduled for release in late July) will come equipped with features to sort your inventory and access the market board, so using these app features would also be considered as logging in from another machine. You may have use for the new system after all!

We hope that this quality of life update will help you out when searching for that one... single... item that you just cannot figure out where you left last... Enjoy! And don't forget, Patch 4.35 is set to release on July 3, 2018!

FFXIV News - Dev Blog: The Song of the Wayward Daughter

From the Dev Blog.













Please note that this article contains major spoilers for the Patch 4.3 main scenario. We strongly recommend you complete it before reading further!















Greetings, adventurers!

If you're caught up with Patch 4.3, you've taken on Castrum Fluminis and possibly even The Minstrel's Ballad: Tsukuyomi's Pain.

As we began to wrap up the hard-earned liberation of Doma, another story unfurled before us featuring the fate of a very familiar character.

The lyrics of the Castrum Fluminis fight are both beautiful and fierce, detailing the mental state of the woman who became Tsukuyomi.

Let's explore the lyrics heard during the battle with Tsukuyomi!

20180612_yn_01.png

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wayward Daughter

Original:

華は 装束く
意味 ひとひらを
定めしや 我生くを 断ち翻して

さあ いざ――

Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide

寄る辺の 月は
紅蓮に 冴えて
遺せしは 抗いの 名残のみなれど

さあ いざ――

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are the lyrics in furigana so you can try and sing-along!

hana wa shousoku
華は 装束く

imi hitohira wo
意味 ひとひらを

sadameshi ya ware iku wo tachihirugaeshite
定めしや 我生くを 断ち翻して

sa iza
さあ いざ――

Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide

yorube no tsuki wa
寄る辺の 月は

guren ni saete
紅蓮に 冴えて

nokoseshi wa aragai no nagori nomi naredo
遺せしは 抗いの 名残のみなれど

sa iza
さあ いざ――

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And finally, here is the English translation.

Flower waiting to be plucked
Each petal a promise torn

Shorn one by one and cast to the winds, I gave unto them my all...all...

No...No more!

Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide

Sanctuary of the moon
Tainted by the crimson light
Naught save the night shall know our sorrow, we give unto it our all...all...

No...No more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

According to the songwriter, the Japanese portion of the lyrics represent the voice of she who has become Tsukuyomi, while the English portion features the voices of those who have restrained her (represented with the fiercer tone in the male chorus).

Throughout the entire song, the structure of the song goes back and forth between the two voices singing to one another.

In a story of revolution and liberation, she also fought to try and release herself, which was included as the final line of the song.

We hope you enjoyed this insight into the storytelling of Stormblood through song! Perhaps using these lyrics, we can all better understand the perspective of this wayward daughter of Doma.

Until next time!
