Quick question to resolve a momentary brain freeze:

What's bard's secondary class? Conjurer?

Yup, level 15 conjurer minimum.

I'm going through the music for ARR, and I'm really excited for some of the potential boss fights they undoubtedly have lined up for the storyline.  I never did the final boss fight for 1.0, but it definitely has one of the best pieces of boss music I've heard in a long time.

Man, the White Raven fight was amazing, and that track just gives you chills. I hope when we face the remaining Legatus that they're as impressive. What sucks is that his hard mode reward gave the best in slot earring: The White Ravens (refresh +1/ regen +1/ accuracy +3) have now been relegated to a vanity item with slashing resist +3. What a way to screw people who took weeks beating the hardest and final fight in ver. 1.0. It literally gets replaced by a pair of level 10 earrings.

It's over (for me at least, capped out my character in a final Longstop run).

I don't know how I'm going to handle the weeks between now and Phase 4.  It's going to be horrible. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!  My final resting place was in the closed off glowing entrance dungeon right across from Bronze Camp in La Noscea.

At least next time there wouldn't be any deletions.

Agent Dee will be asleep in the limsa lominsa inn when the deletion happens. I will be back as Agent "D" in retail.

TASTY!

Just signed out, /sadface

It's going to be a long 4 weeks. Looks like some info coming out of NicoNico tonight.

New Benchmark with character creator will be released on August 1st.
Next Live Letter is scheduled for August 8th.
Arcanist is confirmed for Phase 4, and all voice acting will be in place.
Phase 4 will also be a week long.

Here's a pretty sub-par video from the livestream that shows off some of the armors - couple new pieces in there.

I feel your pain, I spent hours and hours of farming and crafting to make my hq gryphonskin gear for my archer build and now I can't equip any of it.

Yeah they did the same shit with the Imperial Tricorne.

Update- here's the official Eorzea Collection video, in much better quality.

Maybe I'm being too easily impressed here. But when I saw the warrior could open and close his visor I thought that was pretty sweet.

Yup. I went through it and paused for each new armor - a good number of those really are new. The polearm worn with the Behemoth head is freakin' sweet.

Are there plans to release a full soundtrack?  I know there is one that comes with the Limited Edition but I don't expect it to be a full soundtrack. I know there is at least over 100 songs here. Especially day and night music, different field songs, etc.

I've been waiting for someone else to do it ever since I saw it in videos of True Fantasy Live Online from like, a decade ago.  That game also did capes pretty well.  Too bad it disappeared from the face of the earth.

Nothing officially announced yet... only 1.0 is getting a complete soundtrack, on Blu-Ray no less.  Such a bizarre format choice, but whatever.  I pre-ordered it.  It ships on 1 September.

So that blu-Ray soundtrack *IS* for 1.0. See, I was worried about that based on the title, but I just (wrongly) assumed it was still going to have ARR music.

As soon as there's a real ARR soundtrack though, I am all over that. (and hopefully it's on CD or digital and not a format meant for video)
