Yeah, I think they listened a bit too much to the "Shinryu is too hard!" complaints from SB. They even handed out AF gear as part of the MSQ this time to make absolutely sure that people are geared for it (since some people are allergic to job quests for some reason), but didn't make the fight harder on account of that fact. A bit of a bummer, but it was followed up by a great ending so whatever.I finsihed the MSQ today. The last boss was really well done. A lot easier then the last boss of Stormblood was though.
Overall I thought the expansion was excellent. Right up there with Heavensward.
