During the third and final FFXIV Fan Fest, hosted in Japan, we were treated to even more exciting details about the upcoming expansion Shadowbringers.  A new extended trailer for the expansion was revealed, along with several other screenshots and video trailers for a multitude of features including:

  • New Job – Dancer: Dancer joins gunbreaker as one of the new jobs in Shadowbringers. This ranged attacker not only unleashes powerful attacks using throwing weapons, but also performs dances to execute abilities and provide beneficial effects to their party
  • New Player Race – Hrothgar: The Hrothgar player race compliments the recently announced Viera as the second new playable race in Shadowbringers. The Hrothgar and Viera will both have unique, customizable features specific to their races.
  • New Player Cities – The Crystarium and Eulmore: Located in Norvrandt, the former will serve as a player hub, while the latter—an affluent city ruled by the elite will play a key role in the Shadowbringers main storyline.
  • New Raid – Eden: This new high-end raid content will feature multiple challenging bosses, as well as a new character--both designed specifically for this raid series by Kingdom Hearts Director and Final Fantasy series veteran, Tetsuya Nomura.

It's time to dive back into the grind, with the next chapter in the Eureka Saga, Pryos, hitting the servers on Tuesday 6th November 2018!  Not too many details are known yet, but we can pretty much be sure that this next installment will see us further progressing our Relic Weapons though, no doubt, plenty of grinding!  Along with the release date, we have also been teased with a few new screenshots showcasing this new "fiery" region of Eureka. 

Interestingly, Eureka: Pyros does introduce a new mechanic into the game, the "Logos Actions" system.  Through this system, we will be able to extract "mnemes" which unlock special skills which can be used within Eureka: Pyros.  This means players will be able to use the skills of Tanks, Healers or DPS, regardless of the actual role they are playing.  All we have at this stage is 1 screenshot with very little info, so more to be discovered on this system soon.

Along with the new Eureka zone, Hildibrand is back!  With further hilarious tales to enjoy.  We look forward to laughing with you all at Hildi's ongoing antics, as well as diving into the neverending grind that is Eureka!
You can also keep up with all the latest, over at the Official Minisite.
