Final Fantasy XIV’s newest replace has a ton of recent content material that I’m nonetheless simply attempting to course of myself, even after extolling the virtues of FFXIV 5.3’s principal story occasions. But the replace is not all about MSQ since there are some substantial optionally available quests, considered one of which is one other chapter within the Sorrow of Werlyt questline. And the newest mission has you piloting a Gundam…I imply, G-Warrior.
Previously in Sorrow of Werlyt, you needed to combat Ruby Weapon in an 8-player trial boss combat, which was launched in patch 5.1. Here in 5.3, you face off in opposition to Sapphire Weapon in a solo responsibility, however because the pilot of a G-Warrior flying mech engineered by Cid and his crew at Garlond Ironworks. A bombastic cutscene, with some cheeky dialogue choices, performs earlier than the battle prefer it’s straight out of a mecha anime, too.
The G-Warrior has its personal moveset comparable to a strong sword slash, ranged beam, velocity enhance, protecting barrier, and restoration spell. You must handle your EP meter in combat–similar to managing MP as a spellcaster–and study when to execute sure actions so you are not left weak, as was the problem in numerous phases of the Sapphire Weapon combat.
