So I recently learned that Ultimecia was named Artemisa in some other languages, which is (obviously) derived from Artemis. Artemis of Ephesus is the basis of the design for Eden's Promise (as pointed out in the below quote), so in a way we DID get Ultimecia... just not the one people were expecting lol

So those aren't boobs... they are probably bull testicles
It's up to interpretation.
In XIV's case, they're colored the same as her skin so... they're probably boobs.

The only school outfit I'm interested in is the Type 0 outfits. Considering the fact that they've been slowly adding in Type 0 stuff like enemies, minions, and a mount, I'm hoping that the outfit is in the cards as well.

There was a short interview yesterday with Yoshi P for the Japanese website 4Gamer, where he states
I would like to taking even further leaps with Final Fantasy XIV in 2021. New stories, new worlds to travel to, just what type of tale awaits you? I hope you can look forward to it! Also, for Final Fantasy XVI, we plan to start announcing more information, so please pay attention to both FFXIV and FFXVI in 2021!
"New worlds to travel to"? I hope that's metaphorical, because I'd be disappointed to see them pull the same trick two times in a row lol

On second thought, the New World fits the bill for that description as well, which is basically Eorzea's North America equivalent where Blue Magic hails from.

I’ve just started an account, rolled a Marauder and look forward to diving into the world. I chose a server with the xp boost so hopefully it’s still lively, the servers I googled were all full!

All servers are "full" usually, but you can make a character on pretty much any server. It's just time of day / current amount of logged in users dependent. Try making a character at like 6am and you can get in most servers.

After once again capping triple triad cards... it took just under 100 runs of E12 normal before figuring out the drop was bugged, and then another 45ish runs after the 4.51 patch fixed the drop...

I went Garuda because Zelda lol

It’s pretty clunky playing with a controller but I’m slowly getting the hang of it. And I. Beginning to realise this will be a big time sink for me! Also considering buy the boost thingy to level 70 ninjas but I don’t want to miss out on story so I probably won’t.

You said in your previous post that you're on a Preferred server, so don't buy a level skip. That xp boost is actually VERY potent. I started an alternate character recently on a Preferred server as well, and I've been able to level up 4 separate classes just by following the MSQ... which is absolutely insane considering how slow the leveling normally is lol. Normally you'd have to do sidequests in tandem with the MSQ, or even spam FATEs and/or dungeons for XP.

That said, they recently implemented New Game+ for Job Quests so you can just go back and play the story IF you paid to skip it. But again, I highly advise against it. Not only because of the xp boost, but the way the skills are fed to you every few levels allows you to learn the job better, in my opinion, rather than having 23 skills on your hotbar that you have no real grasp of when and what to use. This is especially true of Ninja, because there are Ninjutsu combinations you have to learn as well.

Grats dude! I considered my deck complete once I completed the FF protagonist cards lol. Had to spend like 3million MGP to get the Bartz card smh

So, I finished the main campaign of Shadowbringers late last year and have not been keeping up with the patches. Have they made it easier to level up to keep up with the MSQ through the patches? They usually make it easier when it gets closer to the big expansions.

Usually they make it easier to level up to the cap right before the next big expansion. Have they done that? Thanks for your. Reply

They don't do this. It's easier because of your main job at max and you get bonus XP + any other EXP buff you get in the game.

Edit: Oops, wrong thread.

On the subject of leveling up alt jobs, I find Squadrons to be the easiest/laziest way to do so up until 60, especially as a DPS. Just sit back and let the AI do the work while paying the minimal amount of attention. Also do your Beast Tribes for a decent amount of XP each day.
